In the US, Christians will soon be publicly executed!

Someone claiming to be my mother just left a comment on a relatively old post.

Oh yes you poor atheists are so shunned and you never

Get your way. Baloney you get your way way too much

You get to complain about a cross in MY yard like it hurts you though I guess it does. You had prayer taken our of school. And if a kid brings a Bible to school to read in their quiet time it’s taken away and the kid punished. Oh! Now we see who is truly oppressed Christians are. And it’s getting worse everyday. Do you truly believe in religious freedom? If you do you should know us Christians are under orders from Christ to go and tell others the Gosple, and by asking us not to you infringe on our religious freedom AND freedom of speech. There will come a day when even in the US that Christians will be publicly exicuted. Hopefully you will remember this then. You are like a child that plugs up his ears to keep from being told the truth lalalalalalalalalala, so immature.

Here we see the ‘Help Help, I’m being repressed!’ angle being justified by a hypothetical future. An absurd hypothetical future. How can you claim repression if it hasn’t happened yet?

Help Help I'm being repressed!

At least the guy in this classic Monty Python scene was being moderately shaken for five seconds. That’s measurable repression, I suppose. It even makes a great photo-op. The peasant was undeniably repressed by his government. Laughably mild repression. ‘Yourmomma’ is absolutely sure about an upcoming slaughter of Christians. That does not count as repression at all, not even in the ridiculous Monty Python sense.

Legally speaking, I don’t have a problem with evangelical students converting their little hell-bound buddies (I did it until I reached age 13). If an evangelical adult can’t separate their religion from their profession, then they need to avoid government work. Telling people that your religion is ‘better than others’ or ‘the only truth’ is unacceptable in a pluralistic environment.

Shit Yourmomma says

‘our of school’ 

‘the Gosple’ 


Seriously… you need every bit of school time for, well, school. I’m not sure what he was talking about when he said kids get punished for reading a bible during their quiet time. Can somebody provide a link?

    Poor christians, not allowed to pester everyone about their christianity during school or work (unless they work for a church). Oh how persecuted they are that they must learn the same stuff in school as everybody else, that they must devote time to the same jobs as everyone else, pay their bills, clean their houses and on and on with all these ungodly affairs when they should have the oppertunity to babble about the gospel 24/7.

  • “ I’m not sure what he was talking about when he said kids get punished for reading a bible during their quiet time. Can somebody provide a link?“

    I think you’d need a URL for that individual’s brain to work out what they’re talking about there. Unless they’re quoting some spurious story from World Nut Daily, or similar.

    • F

      Sorry, no deal, not to spec, non-compliant. There is nothing about this individual’s brain which is uniform, a resource, or can be located.

  • “Exicuted” is capital punishment, only FUNNER

  • Onamission5

    If I had to hazzard a guess, I’d say that “in their quiet time” means “during biology class.”

  • Len Blakely

    “…if a kid brings a Bible to school to read in their quiet time it’s taken away and the kid punished.”

  • Randomfactor

    The school says there’s more to it than that, but they can’t say without violating his privacy.

  • Kit

    “You get to complain about a cross in MY yard…..” No, I don’t give a crap about what you have in your yard but I’ll bet you’re whining about some religious whacko who figured he didn’t need to follow his homeowner association rules because he loves Jesus.

  • Kit Walker

    I will be eternally proud of the time I convinced a girl to quit wearing her “I Prayed In School Today, Arrest Me” t-shirt to school.

  • Bruce Gorton


    If I remember correctly it turned out the kid was reading his bible to his classmates during classes when the teachers were trying to teach.

    I suspect there is a reason we haven’t heard any more about it since the suit got filed.

      Epic list is epic.

  • When I was a kid back in 1987, they told us in Sunday School Christians were going to start being fed to the lions again any time now. They’d better hurry or they’ll run out of lions.

    • boxkikker

      Feeding xtians to lions would probably give the lions indigestion.

  • abusedbypenguins

    Really, they are going to execute christians on Pay-Per-View?!!!That would be the only way I would pay for cable. Popcorn and fried christians, could it get any better?

    • Artor

      I’ll buy THAT for a dollar!!!

  • F

    Jesus Christ, I hope so. Then we can stop hearing about how it is going to happen. It’s like those annoying TV spots six months in advance about how this fucking awesome show is going to premier, only it has been predicted/threatened/promised for far longer.

  • Chuck

    If, in the near future, Xians are going to be publicly executed, it will likely be by other Xians with whose interpretation of the gospel the accused don’t follow.

  • DaveL

    They’ve been executing Christians regularly for some time now. Mostly for the murder of other Christians. As I recall, the general sentiment of most Christians towards this was something along the lines of “BOO YAH! USA! USA!”

  • Brownian

    There will come a day when even in the US that Christians will be publicly exicuted.

    I’ve never heard of people so anxious to delay their professed inevitable admittance to eternal paradise.

    What makes them so eager to stay here on this shitty, unsaved earth? Is it the porn?

    I bet it’s the porn.

    • Justin Griffith

      Of course it’s the porn. What else could make Jesus come twice?

    You would have to link to a space in that demented commenter’s mind.

  • anubisprime

    If they had a real functioning brain and not one crippled by atrophy and jeebus rot…they would be fucking dangerous!…

  • Seamus Ruah

    Just replace most of the words with ‘derp’ and it makes complete sense.


  • justsomeguy

    “…you should know us Christians are under orders from Christ to go and tell others the Gosple, and by asking us not to you infringe on our religious freedom AND freedom of speech.”

    In other words: if you ask someone to voluntarily cease a behavior that annoys you, you are oppressing them. Good to know.

  • Alverant

    So she’s claiming that she’s the victim of oppression because she’s not allowed to oppress other people. I guess using that logic terrorism is legal because the terrorists are receiving commands from God or Allah or whatever.

  • I am suing for this blatant false advertising.

  • James Delts

    what a shower of bigots you are. Some here have even demanded they that christians be murdered here, so thats it, its ok just to murder someone because they have different beliefs and disagree with abortion, so you can be entertained. How the hell can you call for people to be killed? I thought you atheists where meant to be tolerant… If thats your view don’t be surprised if you get the same treatment back. Amazed you nuts all want to execute christians, just shows how infantile you all are, cant bear non-conformism.

    • Stacy

      Some here have even demanded they that christians be murdered here

      For fuck’s sake, those were jokes. Not demands for murder. Are you that irony-impaired?

      (Yes, of course you are.)

      Amazed you nuts all want to execute christians

      Actually, no, none of us do. But notice you’ve now turned two (2) obvious jokes (out of 24 comments) about giving Christians the martyrdom they love to fantasize about, into all atheists wanting to (really) execute “christians”.

      Are you “Yourmomma”? Whether or not you are, thanks for beautifully illustrating the persecution complex folks here are poking fun at.

      • Justin Griffith

        According to IP geolocation (mileage may vary) Yourmomma was from Georgia / South Carolina border, James Delts is from mid/northern UK.
