No Rest for the Wicked. | The Heresy Club

The horrific slaughter in Colorado brought the crazy fundies out of the woodwork again, ready, willing and eager to impress us with their “understanding” of why such terrible events take place.

I should be far more impressed with their exhibitions of “being christian” if they were to stop slathering the rest of us with their drooling and conspicuous self-assured righteous “knowledge” and would, instead, urge us, edify us, perhaps even entreat us to be kind to one another.

Rick Warren’s statement, “When students are taught they’re no different from animals, they act like it.” was indicative of his less than top drawer intellectual credentials.

Texas GOP Representative Louie Gohmert’s facile statement was nothing more than a whine, void of sympathy or compassion:

You know, when people say, where was God in all of this? Well, you know, we don’t let… in fact we’ve threatened high school graduation participants that if they use God’s name that they’re going to be jailed, we had a principal of a school, and a superintendent or a coach down in Florida that were threatened with jail because they said the blessing at a voluntary off campus dinner. I mean, that kind of stuff… where is God? Where, where? What have we done with God? We told him that we don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.

Oh, please – just shut the fuck up already!

But perhaps worst of these three, Jerry Newcombe of the American Family Association reminded us during a radio show of their wonderful teachings of salvation and purity by practically gloating over the eternal damnation of the non-christian victims of the shooting:

If a Christian dies early, if a Christian dies young, it seems tragic, but really it is not tragic because they are going to a wonderful place … on the other hand, if a person doesn’t know Jesus Christ … if they knowingly rejected Jesus Christ, then, basically, they are going to a terrible place.

Reality check, Jerry Newcombe: all of us, believers and non-believers, pious and blasphemers, are ALREADY in a terrible place. Further, Jer, if going to what you believe to be a “wonderful place” is so important, why don’t you just kill yourself and get there earlier? Why don’t you advocate killing children as soon as they “give their little hearts to Jesus”?

Ignorant turds – all three of them.

    Perhaps God was too busy helping sportsmen win and disgruntled drivers find parking spots to be of assistance to the movie-goers. If only people prayed less…

    (In seriousness – my condolences go out to all those effected by this tragedy.)

      My condolences go out also – and a whole heap of empathy for lives turned upside down, work lost, bills incurred and so on. It would be very nice if these bloviating pseudo-christians could ASSIST these folks WITHOUT their ridiculous explanations of the obviously unexplainable. Disgusting.
