Ray On Parade

For anyone who's interested, here's a taste of Ray in action. Really.


  1. Ray sounds a little nutty when he's shouting.

  2. Tacky. Very tacky, indeed.

    Ray is a chisto-masochist.
    I am now totally convinced of that.

    There is no argument to the contrary.

  3. Question: Does Ray have some rule against using the word "banana" (you know, the SCARY atheist’s worst nightmare) when posting on his dismal little blog? Twice now he hasn’t posted my rebuttals to his absurd entries. There was no “blasphemy” or profanity, but they both took a small shot at his previous illogical arguments (specifically the banana debacle). I’ve seen far worse belittlement of Ray that he actually lets through. Is he that embarrassed?

  4. PD,
    You never know. Ray has done some strange things over there.

  5. Ray lets slip a revealing bit of his logic around the 2:00 mark. He says something like:

    "Zeus doesn't exist, it's the first of the Ten Commandments."

    Is that how he thinks it works? The Ten Commandments aren't so much normative as descriptive?

  6. Frodo,
    Good find, I could barely stand to watch the thing, let alone pay attention to the details.

  7. I never knew Ray Comfort was such a shrimp. I just thought that Kirk Camaroon was very tall.

    The only thing worse than a preacher who spews nonsense is one who has to shout his nonsense.

    That kind of performance deserves a pie in the face. A banana cream pie, of course.

  8. BF,

    You just gave me the greatest idea ever.
    You are inspiration personified.

    I want to go to that beach a "pie" Ray, with the exact composition you mentioned.

    I would love to have Stewart do it. Stewart is a mischievious sort.

  9. The hand washing bit actually was spot-on...

    Interesting that the guy who posted the video has subsequently had lunch with Ray. His website is interesting:


  10. OK. It's settled then. We take enough money out of our SMRT surplus account and pay Stewat's way over to Huntingdon Beach to "Pie" Ray. I'll go along as producer and cameraperson.

  11. Back Yard Skeptics. That is precious!

    That may be a reference to the fact that one does not need to be a freaking scientist to see how wrong this fundamentalism is.

  12. Froggie-

    Don't you realize what this could easily escalate into? Yeah. I think it would be extremely naive of us, Froggie, to imagine that these new developments are going to cause any change in evangelical expansionist policy.

    I mean, we must be... increasingly on the alert to prevent them from taking over other baked goods, in order to bread more prodigiously than we do, thus, knocking us out in superior numbers when we emerge!

    Froggie, we must not allow... a cream pie gap!

    I have a plan. Heh.

    Mein Fuhrer, I can walk!

  13. BF,
    I am in total agreeance with you.

    Get with your people and cut the check and Stew and I will be off to Kalee.

  14. Praise God for Ray and men like him, who are willing to suffer hatred and ridicule trying to warn people of the judgement to come. Many will will never come to the truth, but for any of them who God does saves it is all worth it.

  15. It's near zero here and grey with it. My chimney needs sweeping.

    If I could get a paid flight to California I'd be there like a shot.

    There's a small problem of a visa ...

  16. "...he suffers more than somebody with cancer."
    I wonder how many times Ray has suffered and died!

  17. stew,

    There's a small problem of a visa ...

    So, last time you crossed the 'yes' after the question if you plan to assassinate the president?
    Maybe they give you a second chance in January...

  18. Sewtion 38 of the visa application form (DS 156) reads:

    Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offense or crime, even though subject of a pardon, amnesty or other similar legal action? Have you ever unlawfully distributed or sold a controlled substance(drug), or been a prostitute or procurer for prostitutes? Yes No

    Have you ever been refused admission to the U.S., or been the subject of a deportation hearing or sought to obtain or assist others to obtain a visa, entry into the U.S., or any other U.S. immigration benefit by fraud or willful misrepresentation or other unlawful means? Have you attended a U.S. public elementary school on student (F) status or a public secondary school after November 30, 1996 without reimbursing the school? Yes No

    Do you seek to enter the United States to engage in export control violations, subversive or terrorist activities, or any other unlawful purpose? Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization as currently designated by the U.S. Secretary of State? Have you ever participated in persecutions directed by the Nazi government of Germany; or have you ever participated in genocide? Yes No

    Have you ever violated the terms of a U.S. visa, or been unlawfully present in, or deported from, the United States? Yes No

    Have you ever withheld custody of a U.S. citizen child outside the United States from a person granted legal custody by a U.S. court, voted in the United States in violation of any law or regulation, or renounced U.S. citizenship for the purpose of avoiding taxation? Yes No

    Have you ever been afflicted with a communicable disease of public health significance or a dangerous physical or mental disorder, or ever been a drug abuser or addict? Yes No


    Let me think....

  19. Glad I am already a citizen, this question "have you ever participated in genocide?" would trip me up.

  20. Stew,

    Is this a multiple choice quiz?

    If it is, I'm goin with procurer, or maybe prostitute.

  21. this is O-L-D news.

    Get with the program. :-)

  22. Yes, but the plan to smuggle me into the Yusa for an act of terroRaysm is new.

    "La Lutte Continue"

  23. Stew:

    I must warn you that, as an undercover agent of the Homeland Pie Security force, I'll have to report your alleged plans of TerroRayism to the commanders of the Pie Force.

  24. Where does this whackjob pontificate? California somewhere, yeah? I suppose I could look it up but, hey, that's what friends are for. I am off to San Francisco for a cell bio conference and if its in the area, I would love to see the master in action. Should be a laugh.

  25. Lonomoholo,

    If you're in San Fran, keep an eye out for a Messianic Jew in the Tenderloin area - he may mistake you for the devil if you have blonde hair and/or wear Hawaiian shirts. Just a friendly warning....

    Hi Dani'El!

  26. Lonomo,
    He's on Huntington Beach on Saturday.

  27. Thanks Ex Pat and Froggie.

    I shall try to take in the beach show, with a nice flask o' booze to keep it interesting and get my heckling receptors activated. Conference is mid December. I'll post if I manage to find Ray (or the MJ...Mr D?).


  28. Quotewhining expat? :)

    Luk 11:53 And as He said these things to them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to assail Him vehemently, and to cross-examine Him about many things,
    Luk 11:54 lying in wait for Him, and seeking to catch Him in something He might say, that they might accuse Him.

    BTW, Ray lives in LA county, hundreds of miles to the south of SF.
    You should read up a bit on Cali's assault laws before you take up pies in anger.
    (though we all have the right to bear pies) Bear pies? Palin's specialty. groan.

  29. Dani'El,

    Welcome back, you must stop lurking and come out to play more often; we enjoy your input.

    You said;

    "Quotewhining expat? :)"

    First off, how was I whining?

    Secondly, is it not true that in several of the instances where you claim to have come into contact with the devil, he was wearing either a Hawaiian shirt or had blond hair? I don't believe it was the devil - therefor my warning that mistaken identity may occur.

    Thirdly, I hardly think I've been 'lying in wait' for you; I'm a regular at your blog and I don't represent my views there any differently than I do here.

    Fouthly, I did say hello.

    Fifthly, I haven't thought of a fifthly yet but I'm open to suggestions.

    Sixthly, are you comparing yourself to Jesus now?

  30. expat,
    On whining, I threw in the wink didn't I? Wasn't really complaining. Jest jesting.

    But taken out of context the blond, Hawaiian shirt biz is designed to make me look foolish, no?

    1. This is Satan's original form.
    The golden shining one. His dazzling beauty corrupted him.
    2. Since I had only discovered my Jewish heritage, he hoped to intimidate me by appearing as a german first in a german army uniform, then changing into a Hawaiian shirt.
    Why a H shirt? I lived in Hawaii for 3 1/2 years prior to moving back to SF in 02.
    He was playing mind games.
    This was bore out in the blog that followed about the events of the very next day. Please go back and read it.
    So maybe you are quote mining to try and make me look foolish?
    I know it also is more in jest from you so no problem here.

    As to comparisons to Jesus.
    All who live according to His commands will suffer the same things Jesus suffered.
    This is called being conformed to the image of His son in scripture.

    Rom 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    As to lurking.
    If a subject comes up that isn't over the top blasphemous, or that I have something to contribute, I will give my thoughts.
    Otherwise I invite anyone who is interested to my blog.

  31. Oh, and I just watched the video.

    I hope it puts to rest any charges of Ray being a greedhead or attention seeker.

    And I hope that no one considers that atheist as a good example.
    He was pretty lame, talking over Ray's answers and spouting the usual gratuitous stuff.

    I used to live in HB just a few blocks from there and boy has it changed.
    I also noted the video is heavily edited. I wonder why?

  32. Dani'El,

    "But taken out of context the blond, Hawaiian shirt biz is designed to make me look foolish, no?"

    No, that wasn't designed to make you look foolish....

    "1. This is Satan's original form.
    The golden shining one. His dazzling beauty corrupted him."

    For those that don't believe as you do, your own words are more than enough. ;)

    (winking smiley, so that makes it ok, right?)

  33. Please no! not that! not gulp.......Sarcasm!! Aaarrrgh!;)

    Here is what the bible says about Satan being corrupted by his good looks.

    Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
    Eze 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
    Eze 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
    Eze 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
    Eze 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
