Christians want to burn down interfaith chapels on military bases

Christians want to burn down interfaith chapels on military bases March 8, 2012

Footage has just emerged showing that it was the Christian event that threatened to burn down the chapels, not the atheists.

I’m sick of getting death threats and other nastygrams about how I’m supposedly burning down churches for Obama (seriously). It all started a few weeks ago when Fox News picked up a story from a cyber-stalker of mine. He took a music video from Aiden way out of context.

Aiden’s song Hysteria begins wistfully.

“Love how they burn your synagogues / Love how they burn your holy texts”

He’s being sardonic. He is talking about how he disapproves of the religious infighting that has plagued our planet for thousands of years. Lead singer William Control has stated so several times. It’s in the first few seconds of this video:

Cool video, I might add. There’s a little Christopher Hitchens in there at the end too. But it was purposely taken way out of context in an effort to force them off of our lineup at Fort Bragg’s Rock Beyond Belief festival. They will be playing this song. And all of you should come out the show (or else you hate the troops, or something.)

Isn’t it ironic? (Dontcha think?)

Now an evangelical chaplain is demanding that Fort Bragg cancels our event, in an open letter to the commanders. He even claims that no such language was used by the people running the evangelical ‘Rock the Fort’ event that inspired our atheist festival. But Chris Rodda just uncovered an amazing clip from a Rock the Fort event.

Read her full article, it’s quite disturbing. My cyberstalker is much higher in rank than me, and I can’t really respond to his vitriol. But Chris Rodda does. Don’t waste your breath on a reply to that open letter to the chaplain. Save it for when Fort Bragg announces their support of our festival in the next few days.

    Great song & youtibe clip. Good article. Cheers. 🙂

    Figures of speech. Irony. I’m may be drunk and half crazy but I can flippin’ get the gist of what’s meant and the sentiments behind it. So how hard can it be?

    Wish that Hitchens quote at the end of the song was a bit more intelligible but then I’m half deaf too.

    How hard can it be, Stevo? When one is determined to misunderstand, misunderstanding is inevitable.

  • Bradley Thomas Horton

    let’s burn some churches

  • Len Blakely

    Nice turnabout.

  • Justin Griffith

    I can’t burn churches for Jesus. Sorry #4, I’m an atheist. Not a radical arsonist evangelical.

    You may not be able to say it, but I can. Maj. Dowty is a waste of skin and a theocrat unworthy of his oath and uniform.

    Aiden’s “Love your” remarks are obviously sarcasm.

    But then you have to have a brain that hasn’t been willfully turned off to get sarcasm. That’s why christards can’t get it. Besides how it serves them not to get it.

    Of course, considering how they twist and mangle absolutely everything the read or hear, even their scumbag manual, is it any surprise that they’ll do it with anything someone they hate says?
