    Drop acid much? Geez …. I watched the video until he claimed the puppy’s floppy ears symbolized the False Prophet’s horns. As a dog lover, I could take no more. Hey … Do any of these guys think THEY might be the False Prophet?

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I confess I was completely amazed at the ridiculous theories coming out. A puppy evil? He claims to be unraveling scripture but it looks to me that the only thing unraveling is his mind. Where is the love of God in any of that?

  • Allison the Great

    Okay, couldn’t watch any of that. I read the titles and… wow. Just wow. I’m amazed at how offended they get from innocent things. They’re going the extra mile to be offended, it seems. They’re offended from the Coke commercial. Fucking seriously? God their stupidity amazes me. And now we have this guy. Did he really say that a puppy’s ears symbolize Satan’s horns? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN!?!

  • Speaking personally as far as The Third Eagle of the Apocalypse is concerned I think Poe’s Law applies. I can’t make my mind up as to whether he actually believes the stuff he spouts, Is taking the mick, or is making it up because it sells well ina certain market.

    I’m really impressed by the Super Bowl and Olympic commercials this year. Diversity, showing gay couples being normal couples doing their everyday “gay agenda” of shopping and taking their kids out.
    Naturally, I can see why the fundies get their frilly panties in a bunch over it.

  • Astrin Ymris

    If fundgelical kids see “gay couples being normal couples” and not evil, they may start questioning whether the Bible is inerrant and/or that their leaders actually have a telepathic rapport with God that enables them to interpret it inerrantly.

  • Nightshade

    Right. I don’t even like dogs much, and I thought the puppy/horse friendship was very cute! Personally I found the multilingual song slightly offensive because of the ‘God shed his grace on thee’ line, but it doesn’t bother me enough to go ballistic with it.

  • Astrin Ymris

    This guy took ONE FRAME of the iPad ‘Verse’ commercial, and decided that it represented a “prophesy” of some kind of disaster, based on numerological gobbledygook?

    If the commercial makers are evil, why would they give a warning of their nefarious plans? If they’re good, why not a DIRECT warning– that doesn’t require pausing the commercial at the precise right second to see?

    Well, in any event, we know now that nothing disastrous happened at the Super Bowl (except to the Broncos). Oh, but wait– that’s due to this guy having put up this lame YouTube video. If he hadn’t, THEN it would have happened.

    I’m not sure if that represents a non-falsifiable hypothesis– or delusions of grandeur.

    I can see why they think the ‘Verse’ commercial is so evil– it’s dangerously inspiring without mentioning religion or hating on anybody’s sex life. What further proof do you need that it’s satanic?

    To be fair, isn’t that the way the bible is approached? Take ONE VERSE and turn it into whatever you think it should be?

  • Keary McHugh

    Of course, this is the same guy who thinks there are phallic/Satanic symbols at the Denver International airport….

    Exactly. I remember the craziness over gay marriage in Massachusetts and how the world was going to end – and then they passed it, people got married, went on with their lives like normal. People are afraid of the unknown boogieman and fundies really like their boogiemen, once they see that the boogieman doesn’t exist they change their minds pretty fast.

  • Astrin Ymris

    Yes… and often after turning it upside down and sideways, too! ;-D

  • Astrin Ymris

    Thanks for the link! I read just today we should all be laughing more– it burns calories. Well, some, but every little bit counts.

  • texcee

    These folks think that EVERYTHING is Satan’s plan.

    Wow… just wow. I thought I’d seen the hinterlands of paranoia, hell, my husband has vacation property there. But I’d never seen anything like this. A cautionary tale (and tail) indeed. If you can see evil in puppies, in silly diagrams (but only if you turn them upside down or sideways) and the existence of the Super Bowl, you can be sure you just aren’t vacationing in paranoia, you’ve set up housekeeping and started a businesses.

    Aside from that, we know the Super-Bowl was not evil! How, you ask? Simple. The Seahawks won. GO ‘HAWKS! GO ‘HAWKS!!

    I live in Seattle. Never would have guessed, would you?

  • gimpi1

    I think I can answer that, Double Dukes. He’s deranged. “Sweater-wearing, grey-bearded grandpa-looking guy” is so far from sanity, he can’t see it with a telescope. And so is “Woman holding up a computer-opening screen for the Super-Bowl website.”

    All we can hope is that there aren’t too many folks following these “prophets.” Or that those following them are just waiting for the punch-line.
