Ray announces his "winner", and out-Poes himself yet again.

Well, kids, Ray has announced the winner of his purulent little atheist essay contest...our very own Kaitlyn.

Kaitlyn, I don't know whether to congratulate you or offer my condolences, but I'd like to caution you against giving Ray your mailing address, as he requested in his post. That, of course, goes for all the Raytractors. I certainly would want any of the unbalanced Bible-thumpers over at AC to know my mailing address...

Anyway, in his post, Ray offered an interesting analogy to Kaitlyn. I imagine he thought he was making some point of his clearer, but the analogy he chose was particularly ironic, given what he represents:

Kaitlyn, here is a not-very-good analogy for you: A doctor held out a cure to a deathly sick patient and said, "You will be dead in seconds if you don’t take this cure. You need to take it now!" The dying patient ignored the cure...
Now, to be fair (and to try to avoid any accusations of "quote mining"), I feel I should point out that Ray's "analogy" goes one for 99 more words. However, in the interests of conserving space, I have only quoted the first 36 words. Anyone who is interested in viewing the analogy in its mind-numbingly stupid entirety can do so via the link I have provided.

Myself, I didn't want to waste time and energy pointing out why the analogy is so fatally flawed, as I'm sure that's as painfully obvious to the rest of the Raytractors as it is to myself. I just wanted to point out the exquisite irony in Ray choosing as the subject of his analogy a sick person refusing medical treatment, considering how many innocent children have died needless, horrible, painful deaths because their Fundie parents refused proper medical treatment, instead trusting in their Magic Sky Daddy to swoop in like the damned eagles from Return of the King and deliver a miracle in the nick of time.

It's a good thing that Ray has built up an immunity to his own irony...

  1. Lets not forget that in this analogy he left out the fact that the doctor gave the patient this horrible disease and will only give her the cure if she accepts him to be her lord and savior. Or something.


Unlike Ray we don't censor our comments, so as long as it's on topic and not spam, fire away.
