God’s Not Dead Producers in Hot Water Over Ice Bucket Challenge

I find this highly amusing. The team from Pure Flix, which produced God’s Not Dead, took the ALS ice bucket challenge in honor of one of their managers who has ALS and posted it to their Facebook account. They challenged their 4 million Facebook viewers, who responded with fury because ALS supports embryonic stem cell research.

You really should read the comments. People are absolutely livid because they now clearly support killing babies. WHY DO YOU HATE BABIES?

    Because they often scream and stink?

    That seems a fair description of the commenters but what about the babies?

    Now, look, people other than me having a terrible disease is a small price to pay to punish sluts.

    “Not my baby! Not my problem!”. But they are the teabagging theocrats’ babies until after the woman gives birth. Because their god said it’s kosher to eat squirrel.

    Here’s an interesting fact: “Embryonic stem cells do not come from fetuses; in fact, they cannot be found in fetuses, aborted or otherwise.” See page 245 of Merchants of Immortality by Stephen S. Hall.

    If only there was an omniscient being who could have warned them about this in advance, then they would have never mad this mistake.

    And I bet not one in a thousand of those protesters would refuse a cure that came out of an embryonic stem cell research program if they (or especially their child) were ever unfortunate enough to come down with ALS.

    A mere technicality, they claim that life (i.e. the person) begins with the zygote so ice bucket challenge is still wrong wrong wrong wrong. Repetitions always make me think of the spam song. I went to a restaurant once for breakfast and they had 8 or 9 entrees all starting with egg, bacon, and…. The urge to sing it was almost overwhelming.

    It is a harsh world these folk live in. The bad news is that they live in a world where actions are either good or bad, serving the lord, or serving Satan. The good news is that this binary system feeds their addiction to outrage and righteous indignation. Of course, after a few decades of feeding the addiction the addiction takes over and achieving a state of high dudgeon becomes an end in itself.

    Finding someone to be mad at, better than, disgusted by is like rolling out of bed and lighting a cigarette, and drinking some coffee for them. It is what they do to modify their emotional state so that they feel like they are fulfilling their role and maintaining their self image.

    I’ve seen people who tune into Limbaugh or Hannity, or any of two dozen other firebrands, to get their blood moving. You can actually see the effect. They seem blah, despite the cigarettes and coffee, and then, after ten minutes hearing about how liberals are just the worse people on the planet, with the implication that the listeners are, vastly superior, they liven right up and are ready to face the world.

    Wanna hear a gay joke? My brother told me this one… I guess it’s a standard among gay men.

    “Why do women wear makeup and perfume?”

    (Stand by for the punch line)

    What’s even more amusing(?) is that they aren’t actually even donating to the ALS foundation that started it.

    they’re giving the money to something called the “SWCDD Foundation”

    what’s that you ask?

    fucked if I know, my google fu fails me!

  • blf

    WTF is an “ice bucket challenge”?

    I’ve been seeing this mentioned a number of times recently — even some executive at the Bigge Dumbie CorpFakeperson I work for supposedly had it done — but all I can work out is it involves being beastly to Walruses. (I’ve no idea what happens to the Carpenters or the Oysters.)

    Properly prepared, they’re delicious.

    That’s fun. I’ve never seen that show but I’ve been in situations where I’d’ve thought, though wisely not said, that.

  • Ichthyic

    so… nobody knows what the “SWCDD Foundation” is?

  • http://www.quarkscrew.com Brian Murtagh

    It’s a research foundation for chronic diseases including ALS that eschews lines of inquiry involving stem cells. http://swccdfoundation.com/

    Which raises the question of what all the shouting is about, doesn’t it?

  • http://www.quarkscrew.com Brian Murtagh

    It’s the SouthWest Center for Chronic Disease, a research foundation working on chronic diseases including ALS, which eschews lines of inquiry involving stem cells. http://swccdfoundation.com/

    Which does raise the qwuestion of what exactly they’re all complaining about, doesn’t it?

  • dingojack

    Apparently their working on a cure for ALS without using stem cells ‘from aborted babies’*. I would assume it’s running out of South-western College**.

    It ought to say SWCCD. That’s the Southwest Center for Chronic Disease.

    I didn’t say it made any sense but that’s where their donate link goes, now.
