This Just In: Buddhism is "Satanic"


"Satanic." Yep. Thus spake the President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I can't make this stuff up. I don't even have to.



[above: A statue of the Buddha, a statue not unlike the Buddhas of Bamiyan, Afghanistan, prior to the other Taliban fundamentalists blowing it up for being oh, well, you know, Satanic or something. Go figure.]

Ooooo. That guy's face looks like it's under the influence of Satanic power! God simply would NOT make a person that ugly. Must be Satan at work.

Yes, looking at Albert Mohler, one cannot help asking "what hath God wrought"?

I think bobble heads are Satanic.


They use Satan to scare the easily scared into all sorts of lunacy.

Sorry I haven't been here as often as I would like, I get sidetracked on topics, and busy with the anniversary of the war events, and all kinds of mental confusion. And sometimes I fall to escapist bloggery, reading about how a woman in Florida makes leaves shiny on her potted ficus...

The Buddha? Definitely Satanic. Look at that smile--pride (or lust). Those slanty eyes--greed. In later life, that belly--gluttony for sure. I could go on, but I think the point is made.

god, this sounds all too familiar ... remember when the taliban destroyed those ancient buddhist statues because they weren't muslim? geez, why do all fundies sound the same?

Down here, everybody knows that Christianity is the real tool of the Devil.

myfawkenlawd! does it never end? seems not. maybe someone can develop a nasty gm product that when sprayed on arrogant assholes turns them flouro green, or something. I know this is a peace-lovin' site, I won't dream on.
thanks no blood for your continuing illumination of hubris in it's many guises. ....oh, and about the preceding post re sending the poor suckers back...into war..."is there no sin in it?"
