Nothing is ever funnier than the truth.
I hate to say this, but I can only stand so much of him. He gets on my nerves after a while. He sounds almost REAL to me. If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was a REAL hellfire and damnantion preacher.
I think when he got on my nerves the most was when he was on the Infidel Guy show and mocking the mormons and their prejudice ideology towards Blacks. Now IG is Black and I’m surprised he dealt with it for a whole hour, BUT it could have been because he knew this guy was not real.
I’m all for the humor, but words of hate are words of hate…coming from some radical christian, muslim, or atheist…somel get blinded by the movement and become just like the otherside, we just use the other side of the coin to do it.
People like him wage wars, the Ralley and speaking out against what you beleive is evil, is everyones right! But people like him are Hypocrits just like most the relgious leaders.
He only fuels the Christian beleives by fulling feeling their prophecy, the Bible tells them that Satan will use the word of God against them, and he just feeds the thoughts…You are playing into their hands, brother, and do not even know it!
I’m glad I’m not the only one who notices these things with this guy and it’s precisely why he gets on my nerves.
It’s SATIRE, folks:
He’s not a hypocrite; preachers of all religions (and arguably those in the pulpits of the Christian right more so than many others) are ripe for satirizing, and I’m glad he’s doing it.
I suppose you might call him a Hype-o-crat, though, that would make a kind of twisted satirical sense…
Kyle, I never said he was a hypocrit. I just said, even though I know he is mocking the religious, I can’t handle it because it sounds too real to me.
