I love the photos you put in shoeless.
How about this one. Oh man, it's so hard being 80% of the American population.
"[On why his .500 ball club actively recruits only Christian players]
We had to go to hell and back to know where the Holy Grail is. We went through a tough time and took a lot of arrows.
I don't want to offend anyone, but I think character-wise we're stronger than anyone in baseball. Christians, and what they've endured, are some of the strongest people in baseball. I believe God sends signs, and we're seeing those."

They endured having to hear about all the shit their ancestors dealt with, and think it applies to them as well.
This just about says it all-
"Why should America follow the Geneve convention when terrorists do not? We must act in the same way as the terrorists. War has no rules much like the terrorists. Screw the world opinion when it comes to fighting terrorism. Torture, excecute terrorists if need be to find necessary information.
This is a new generation of war, Geneva convention is old and out dated. There is no human rights in war.
We must let the terrorists know that if they are caught with explosive material on their hands then its automatic excecution on site."

Donald Rumsfeld, is that you? And what's scary is, there were enough people like this to give Bush the election. Yeesh.
"[A young-earth-creationist's critique of those who celebrate the Summer Solstice and give thanks to fictitious cloud men]
Giving "thanks" to the earth is sad as it ties a person to the mundane. People end up doing silly, nonproductive and sometimes harmful things to appease the "the earth" or "the sun". Recylcing, when it makes no economic sense, it the most obvious current result of this mindset. In the past, the rituals were more dangerous (especially for woman, children, the elderly and the weak). Only when those sorts of belief systems were replaced by Christainity did mankind understand that man is special, created in the imagine of God , that every person has basic human rights, that the world is here for us, is rational and knowable and not subject to the whims of caprious spirits lurking behind rocks or grinning from clouds."

I think of these people as the "No Earther's." Basically it all comes from a belief that God set the world up with a long term plan, and there is no need to worry about pollution or global warming or dwindling resources or rampant disease or war or overpopulation or anything else because God will bring about the Apocalypse before the Earth falls apart.
After all, if God is going to destroy the place before we can, what's the point of taking care of it? "Death by Irony Overdose" or "Rewriting History"?
