Fuck You, Ray

"And it’s clear that the atheists’ aggressive agenda is to remove God’s name from schools, from currency, from nature programs, and history books, and at the same time fill movies and television with His name used in blasphemy."

Did you catch that, Ray? Fuck you. How's that for wrath?


  1. This is the angriest I've been at him in a while. I don't want the idea of discussion of god and religion removed from schools. I don't want the "my god is the on;y god and you'll go to hell if you don't believe it" part in public schools. I don't care about "In God We Trust", because to me that's just another example of their hypocrisy. They're arguing about having the word god represented on something that breaks one of their wonderful commandments; it seems to me that currency is a graven image. Nature programs and history books is just more of Comfort's deliberate misrepresentation of the facts. More of his lies. Fuck Ray.

  2. You know what gets me though...
    He acts as if he is the one oppressed.

  3. Ranting Student said:

    "He acts as if he is the one oppressed."

    Great point. In his latest post, he actually makes a comparison with anti-black discrimination:

    "He leaned forward to take a closer look, stood back, and with utter distain said the artist’s name and used the “n” word to describe him. They hated this man and all of his work, simply because of his skin color."

    This is backasswards. God is much more like the oppressor, and we're the one punished for our nature.

  4. I liked this one from Chris of Oz:

    Ray: "They distain the God who gave them life simply because of His moral government."

    Chris: No, we don't think he exists, because there's no evidence. I do distain the morals of the character of God in the bible though. Like I distain the morals of Lord Voldermort.


  5. I actually see no problem with removing God from state entities like schools, money, whathaveyou. Big deal. I'm sure you guys agree with that.

    If Ray knows his bible; Christ said himself, Give to Cesear what is Ceasar's and to God what is God's. This is seperation of church and state spoken from the man himself.

    Ray is simply a victim or poor analogy here. I'd say it makes him look like an idiot, but we all know he is already.

  6. Separation of church and state =/= oppressing people of faith. I wonder what Ray would say if he was in a Muslim country that had "in Allah we trust" on his money and forced his kids to pray to Allah in school. Or how about "there is no god" on all the money. Who would be fighting for separation of church and state then?

  7. Furthermore, no one is trying to eliminate god from books and discussions anymore than they are trying to eliminate unicorns or aliens from books and discussions. Ray is a stupid fuck for sure.

  8. Rufus, until recently I would have agreed with you that things like the Pledge of Allegiance or the currency are mere trivia, especially in light of how vital it is to put the First Amendment first, so to speak.

    Now I'm not so sure about that. If "under god" in the pledge is "merely ceremonial" as the bleevers insist, then why do they get so uptight over the prospect of removing it? If money is just money, then deleting "in god we trust" should be merely a matter of legislation -- only everyone knows it's much more than that.

    I think that allowing the bleevers to have their way on such trifles for so long, has turned the trifles into stone walls. I think these walls must be brought down if there's to be any sensible political discussion in the future.

  9. I think the more the government pushes god and puts the word "god" on stuff the more validity it gives Christians who say "this is a Christian nation". It's also a way for them to get their foot in the door so eventually they can make the government incorporate their religion into bigger issues.

  10. Wee:

    I understand what you're saying. They do go on and on about such things. They don't personally bother me as a non-believer. I don't pay that close of attention to the currency I hold. I haven't said the Pledge of Allegiance in a long time, but the last time I did, I simply stopped at "Under God". And of course, they never mention that the original pledge, written by a Socialist, didn't have that. You may be familiar with the two fucked up "Christain" versions: "I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag, and to the Savior, for whose kingdom it stands. One Savior, crucified, risen and coming again, with life and liberty for all who believe." And "I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands; One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and Liberty to all who repent and believe The Gospel". I guess I'm fucked.

  11. I heard that Christian pledge on jesus camp.
