The Fighting Fundamentalists

I am getting a lot of hits from the Fighting Fundamental Forums. I guess they like to find liberal sites so they can go and pick fights. You can go there to hear them strategize!

The person who started the forum asked:

Would like to get some input as to how to engage him-- or should I deem it a futile exercise in pearl-casting to a pig?

I would call engaging me "a futile exercise in pearl-casting to a pig."

So don't bother.


  1. If you've been deemed a pig by the fundamentalists, you can't be all bad!

  2. As Oscar Wilde said, "The only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about." ;)

  3. I'm amused by the fact that their biggest objection to you is the PFLAG links, and also by their rabid reaction to the Revised Standard Version of the Bible. Quel horreur!

  4. Henry: Ima Hogg, but a nice one.

    Alan: Ah, too true. I wouldn't feel needed.

    Fly: Different worlds, eh?

  5. I guess there is only one TRUE translation of the Bible? Which is it - the King James? If so, which version? We need to pray for them.

  6. The "Fighting Fundamental Forums"? Geez. That sounds like a lobotomy waiting to happen.

  7. Maybe we could all just be amused over their belief that they have pearls in the first place? :-P

  8. I think pigs are wonderful creatures - very intelligent, and unlike cows, they don't shit all over each other. It almost makes me feel bad that I like bacon and ribs so darned much.

    Something tells me Harry might be from that neigborhood. Siding with oss, I suspect it is mostly costume jewelry.

  9. "It almost makes me feel bad that I like bacon and ribs so darned much."

    If God didn't want us to eat pigs, he wouldn't have made them out of bacon.

  10. "If God didn't want us to eat pigs, he wouldn't have made them out of bacon."

    Amen, brother!

  11. Could it be that Christianity is really just a giant scam to allow Jews to eat bacon?

    Stranger things have happened in this crazy world...

  12. Ha! That reminds me of a bit by Michael Feldman, host of Wisconsin Public Radio's "Whaddaya Know" quiz show.

    He said that his family growing up ate pork chops all the time. His dad figured they'd get away with it because his mother's cooking rendered them unrecognizable even to God.
