1 What, me worry?  Fri, Jan 21, 2011 4:19:51pm

The way I read this, he was calling the Native Americans heathens. Of course, there are a lot of N.A. in Tucson. They would be the ones invoking Father Sky and Mother Earth. But if he had any clue, he would also know that these people are also Christians (usually) and I don’t think they’d take too kindly to being called the anti-Christ. Then again, Graham is an idiot of the first degree.

“We’re being secularized so quickly. Anything that has to do with Christian faith is slowly being taking out of society.”

Make up your mind, douchebag.

This “being” is nothing more than a member of a destructive cult. What he needs, I cannot mention here, but it’s not nice.

I considered his father to be a good man, sincere if not necessarily right. Franklin is no Billy.

My friends, in these times of great peril, when the world totters at the edge of the abyss and man knows no bounds in his quest for carnal pleasure, I would like to offer my services.

You’ve heard the phrase, ‘you can’t take it with you’ and when the rapture comes - and it will come, as surely as day follows night and summer follows spring, it will be upon you when you least expect it - I will still be here. A mortal sinner awash in a world of sinners. So please, give me all your shit now so you will not be burdened with the weight of your worldly goods. You truly can not take it with you, but I would truly like to have it.

In particular, I’m desiring a ‘53 Fender Telecaster, a ‘39 Matin D-45, a Steinway Grand Piano, a Moto Guzzi, preferably a 500cc with points (those electronic ignitions will not work post rapture) and a BMW R100. Oh and one of those Mercedez coupes. Those are cool. and a Shelby Mustang.

Thank you for your attention.

“There was no call for God to put His loving arms around those who were hurting,” he observed. “Why did they leave him out? They scoff at the name of Jesus Christ.”

Quite honestly, I’m tired of events needing to be aligned or explained with someone’s religious beliefs.

We’re grownups. Unfortunately, people like Graham refuse to speak in grownup terms.

No beliefs but his own. Sounds familiar.

When he says “They scoff at the name of Jesus Christ”, is he implying that Obama is the one scoffing?

I interpreted it a lot more broadly. “They” as in “the other”—i.e. any non-Christian or person who is culturally non-WASP (especially anyone bi-lingual). Naturally, that would include POTUS. Catholics & Mormons are probably considered borderline.

Oddly enough, I didn’t hear anything during the memorial service that I would consider scoffing, but then I’m a half-Hispanic, liberal, Muslim infidel, so it’s a given that my moral compass is hopelessly skewed. //

From the article:

“The spirit of anti-Christ is everywhere,” stated Graham, who noted that television networks have pushed out reporters who cover Christian-related topics. “We’re being secularized so quickly. Anything that has to do with Christian faith is slowly being taking out of society.”

Strange claim. You can’t turn on cable TV without tripping over Christian channels. Where I live, you can’t walk more than 2-3 blocks blocks without encountering a church.

Below is a list of the Christian churches I was able to find listed in my little township, which covers a whopping area of just over 2 square miles, with a population of about 33K:

8 Baptist
4 Church of God
3 Catholic
2 Episcopalian
2 A.M.E. (African Methodist Episcopal)
1 Presbyterian
1 Methodist
1 Greek Orthodox
1 Apostolic
1 Assembly of God
1 Church of Christ
1 Seventh-day Adventist
1 Pentecostal
12 Non-denominational and/or Evangelical (some are just those tiny little store-front churches, others are quite large)

By my count that’s 39 churches, which works out to approximately 1 church for every 846 residents, all of whom are obviously not Christian. I have never seen, heard of, nor could I locate one single Hindu or Buddhist temple, synagogue, or mosque (though there are several mosques and synagogues in neighboring towns). And this is on the liberal, godless East Coast, a less than 20-minute train ride from the great Sodom & Gomorrah that is NYC. Doesn’t seem to me like Christianity is in danger of disappearing from our society any time soon.

Speaking of NYC, take a gander at how many churches exist there—note that some are split into 2 lists because there are so many):

Manhattan - List 1, List 2
Brooklyn - List 1, List 2
Queens - No single list as Queens is designated by neighborhood (as per USPS)
Bronx
Staten Island

Methinks that if Christianity is losing its grip on American society, then maybe, just maybe, it’s because it’s no longer resonating with Christians or offering them practical spiritual solutions to the modern problems they face. Oh, and maybe if the pastors would stop inserting themselves into national politics and chasing after secular power, then perhaps they could find more time to do the type of work that Jesus (a.s.) did.

re: #11 CuriousLurker

Correction:

Brooklyn - List 1, List 2

Assembly of God (12)

There is also a synagogue and a single mosque.
The latter has been vandalized several times over the past few years. One group of miscreants was apprehended right away and told police they had planned to vandalize the synagogue but couldn’t find it and settled for the mosque instead.

re: #13 Shiplord Kirel

OMG, Islamic supremacy! Creeping sharia is bound to overtake Lubbock’s judiciary any day now. And the Juice! That synagogue is surely the Zionist command & control center whence they control Lubbock’s economy. Christianity in Lubbock is DOOMED.//

re: #13 Shiplord Kirel

I’m reminded of a major semi-rural intersection in Butler County, Ohio which at one time had a Church of God, Church of the Nazarene, Church of Christ, and one whose name I forget on its four corners—and they hated each other.
