If you want a break from the mindless stuff dished out by the latest crop of knuckleheads who appear to be taking over the religious forums with reams of cut and pasted garbage, pay a visit to the Landover Baptist Church website.
It's religious parody at it's finest!
And if you are presently unsaved, their $439 certificate of Eternal Security is a good deal. (but see small print about the $10,000 activation fee )

WARNING: THE SUBJECT OF THIS THREAD SAYS UNSAFE FOR THE DEVOUT FOR A VERY GOOD REASON.
DON'T SAY YOU WEREN'T WARNED, AND DON'T COME HERE COMPLAINING TO ME IF YOU ARE OFFENDED.
so it's like some regular somedy site under the veil of a church site, but not really a church?
No Asher, It's not really a church.
And if you want to see some amazing stuff, go and read their letters page.
They publish all the hate mail that they receive.
I know...it just seemed like a dumb waste of time , talent, or whatever...to expel energy on a hate site...guess I cling onto innocence despite my job...
I understand that the site makes a fortune from merchandise, adsense, etc.
Dumb like a fox
It made me laugh. Does that make it a waste of time? Or are you a "serious" writer and have no time for such things?
@ Eric - I am still laughing. Did you read the "Do pets go to heaven?" article?
http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0106 … eaven.html
Yes, that's a classic. and there's loads more to keep you amused for ages.
The "Modern Cults" article at http://www.landoverbaptist.org/sermons/modern.html is pretty good too.
As is the send up of Amazon http://www.landoverbaptist.org/thelittlejew.htm
I'm surprised you haven't heard of Landover Baptist before.
It puts the Fun into Fundamentalism.
Don't forget to check out the forums and merchandise too: The bumper stickers, t-shirts, etc. are brilliant.
@froggy: you'll also need a "What Would Jesus Do" thong.
OMG, that website hurt my eyes. Couldn't stay on there for more than 2 seconds.
I remember that site! It's brilliant satire actually.
Well - I've had a shufty and a laugh. 'Tampons - Satans Little Fingers'. Brilliant.
It's not just full of satire, it's dripping down the screen as you read. If anyone doesn't 'get it' then ...
There's an associated site, www.Bettybowers.com
Betty Bowers is America's Best Christian.
There's a part where you can send a good old fashioned christian rebuke to the godless. (I've sent you one )
From the site:
New Age "Jesus is Love" Hallmark Greeting Card Christians make the real Jesus reach for His Vicodin! Now, you can let them know how irritating their Disneyfied Jesus is to the wrathful God depicted in the Bible. Send them an automated, head-spinning rebuke: the E-buke! Just press a button and Betty & Jesus do the rest!
You can send an E-buke from this page letting someone know they are a Fake Christian -- or CLICK HERE to send an E-buke to let someone know that Landover Baptist Salvation Evaluation Committee has determined that they are going straight to Hell. If you wish to be even more pointed in your righteous judgment, you can send them a notification that they are a FAKE CHRISTIAN and make Jesus vomit by CLICKING HERE. Truly, being self-righteous has never been so easy. Glory!
As an agent of the Rev. Deacon Fred, I can help you if you email me with your credit card number, expiry date, and the available balance.
We'll have you saved in no time
(And I suppose that I better put a disclaimer here to the tut-tut-tutters who will pop up and say that you should never email your credit card to anyone - especially me.)
This is a joke. NEVER email your credit card details to anyone. But Earnest is a Victorian, and therefore pretty stupid, and he'll do so anyway)
Eric, so pleased you replied in time for me to be saved. I now see the truth in what you said about we Victorians! I got all the questions wrong, and was next in line for hell, damnation, contamination, vexation, constipation taxation, and eternal torture. I remain, fearfully yours,
an ex non believer.
I've processed your payment for $13,428.87, and you can now consider yourself saved.
And when you add some more funds to your card, let me know.
for another $100 I'll send you a little badge so that you can proudly display your new status to the rest of the world.
Yes please Eric! (can I still call you that?)I'm topping up ye carte as we speak. I am becoming less afraid by the minute!
Given our new relationship, It will cost an extra $1,000 a month for you to continue calling me Eric.
I call it a "Respect Offering". I've made the charge in anticpation of your agreement.
And I'm also thinking of starting a new Australian church:
"The Church of the Holy Boomerang".
It will be the first truly honest church - we will proclaim right up front that we are bent.
Perhaps you can help me with the important initial planning, ie Membership fees.
Naturally I sold the car and made the extra payment Eric! Oh how I feel just saying that name!!!!!!!!!!!
Being almost a real Australian (Just the one head) I would enjoy being a part of any bent church, and declaring it upfront sounds so very Oz.
I will get started on some fees and charges, as soon as I can.
Again thank you for the opportunity to be saved.
ERIC, there! I said it again!
And I am wondering why these people have not been smitten.
Eric - thanks for the rebuke, I am duly chastised.
You certainly have been.
And your hubber score is going to go down. Way down.
Look - It's already down to 99.
I'd forgotten about the good old rebuke. Might be an idea to drop bits of it into appropriate posts on the forum
I think you should begin with this impressive show to recruit new followers 4 your 'Bent Church'
And this is you Children's Guide 2 religion . Amen!!
And now become a crazy preacher and you're done. Good luck!
Wow. where do I get one of those
That first video was great, but I had plans for something with a bit more impact.
He was just pushing or flipping his coat at his flock to make them fall over.
I think that throwing hunting boomerangs at them would be a lot better, and also leave a blessed mark where the boomerang struck.
Now - where can I get a lot of people who can accurately throw boomerangs?
And Tantrum: Methinks that I'm getting the flavour of someone else when I read your posts. I'll have to take more notice
Eric, (Receipt for speaking your name No 001099) can throw a boomerang better than most, and even have my own. I really like the thought of "wacking some sense in to them" that this implies.
You can be the Sergeant at Arms.
(but if they've joined up under the sign of the Holy boomerang then by definition they're very smart, and don't need any sense wacked into them )
When are you going to open the church ,Master ? This lady XTASIS wants 2 join in You'll lose your followers! I bet she isn't around any more

What led you to become an atheist / agnostic? I grew up a devout SDA Christian. After high school...I rebelled, then returned, blaming my rebellion on career problems. However, those continued, I joined a cult, putting my life in danger.I escaped to Seattle, joining a wonderful church there. Career...

It occurs to me that many Hubbers have had not-so-positive interactions with organized religion and its promoters.Here's your chance to shout at the devil (so to speak).Oh yes -- if you've had outrageous (in a good way) experiences, feel free to share them here as well

I understand you are a devout christian, what do you make of the recent scandals in the church?

I found a message board (not going to mention the site) that has tons and tons of security cams and webcams across the WORLD that you can watch.The site is run by hackers that can turn on your webcam without you knowing.There are HUNDREDS of webcams in living rooms, offices and bedrooms on the site...

I wrote a *satire on the state of human health today. I know if I publish it on HubPages it won't be picked for Healdove as it is not scientific, nor for Remedygrove because it doesn't promise to cure anything. It would, however, fit perfectly well on a humor/satire site.Have any of you got...
