Christian commenter wants to bind me. Rawr.

Icy Cantu is a god-botter with a habit of doing nothing but posting scripture.  I don’t mind religious commenters, but they damn well better be part of the conversation.  I’m not a fan of believers turning my comment sections into their own personal billboard.  Icy was warned and then banned.

But like most of the handful of others who have received the ban hammer, he continues to comment.  Those comments get sent directly into my spam filter.  I’m so glad I had the luck to catch this comment, which I let through because it was just too lol-worthy.

I bind you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

It didn’t work.  :)  I am more powerful than god.

    But you have to admit, it would have been really cool if it would have worked. That being said, I just have to give it a try as well.

    JT, I bind you in the Name of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and all of of His Noodley Appendages. Ramen.

    Have Michaelyn let us know if it worked!

    JT, I send you passive aggressive bondage porn in the name of the most psychopathic, uncaring dom ever imagined.

      Passive aggressive bondage porn? That sounds like the most boring thing ever.

        It’s where the guy strips naked, ties himself up and waits for his wife to get home. The video is just him, waiting in silence. 20 minutes in, the AC kicks on, much to his embarrassment. After 40 minutes he suddenly shouts, “Dammit, I forgot, she’s on a business trip!” Roll credits.

          In the directors cut there was 5 minutes of him whistling to pass the time.

    Besides which, don’t Christian magic spells have to be spoken out loud? I don’t think their God checks random blog comments for any prayers he’s missed.

    I am more powerful than god.

    Don’t allow this to inflate your ego, even an amoeba is more powerful than god. And don’t get me started on viruses. Damn things are bringing me down.

    It’s like they think they’re those priest people in Age of Empires that can convert you by literally waving their arms and going “Wololo”.

    But they’re not, so they can’t.

    *furious wanking*


  • Randomfactor

    Bet this guy fantasizes as Mitt Romney apparently did about being a Binder of women.

    (Actually, I’ve seen the whole “binding” thing explained as more like binding a sprained ankle–a bandaid for the booboo.)
