jesus sucks

Ann Coulter

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to
Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only
Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed
civilians. That's war. And this is war."

"Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims."

"Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of
Christianity, as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the
lines of 'kill everyone who doesn't smell bad and doesn't answer to the name

Bailey Smith

"With all due respect to those dear people, my friend, God Almighty does not
hear the prayer of a Jew."

Beverly LaHaye (Concerned Women for America)

"Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical
principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those
values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their
public and private lives do not belong in office."

Bob Dornan (Rep. R-CA)

"Don't use the word 'gay' unless it's an acronym for 'Got Aids Yet'"

David Barton (Wallbuilders)

"There should be absolutely no 'Separation of Church and State' in America."

David Trosch

"Sodomy is a graver sin than murder. - Unless there is life there can be no

Fob James (Governor of Alabama)

"A good butt-whipping and then a prayer is a wonderful remedy."

Fred Phelps (Westboro Baptist Church)

"If you got to castrate your miserable self with a piece of rusty barb wire,
do it."

Gary Bauer (American Values)

"We are engaged in a social, political, and cultural war. There's a lot of
talk in America about pluralism. But the bottom line is somebody's values
will prevail. And the winner gets the right to teach our children what to

Gary North (Institute for Christian Economics)

"The long-term goal of Christians in politics should be to gain exclusive
control over the franchise. Those who refuse to submit publicly to the
eternal sanctions of God by submitting to His Church's public marks of the
covenant-baptism and holy communion-must be denied citizenship."

"This is God's world, not Satan's. Christians are the lawful heirs, not

Gary Potter (Catholics for Christian Political Action)

"When the Christian majority takes over this country, there will be no
satanic churches, no more free distribution of pornography, no more talk of
rights for homosexuals. After the Christian majority takes control,
pluralism will be seen as immoral and evil and the state will not permit
anybody the right to practice evil."

George Bush Sr. (President of the United States)

"I don't know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they
be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

George W. Bush (President of the United States)

"I don't think that witchcraft is a religion. I wish the military would
rethink this decision."

"God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed
me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the
problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the
elections will come and I will have to focus on them."

"Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists."

"This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while."

Henry Morris (Institute for Creation Research)

"When science and the Bible differ, science has obviously misinterpreted its

J. B. Stoner (White Supremacist)

"We had lost the fight for the preservation of the white race until God
himself intervened in earthly affairs with AIDS to rescue and preserve the
white race that he had created.... I praise God all the time for AIDS."

"AIDS is a racial disease of Jews and Niggers, and fortunately it is wiping
out the queers. I guess God hates queers for several reasons. There is one
big reason to be against queers and that is because every time some white
boy is seduced by a queer into becoming a queer, means his white bloodline
has run out."

James Dobson (Focus on the Family)

"Those who control the access to the minds of children will set the agenda
for the future of the nation and the future of the western world."

"State Universities are breeding grounds, quite literally, for sexually
transmitted diseases (including HIV), homosexual behavior, unwanted
pregnancies, abortions, alcoholism, and drug abuse."

"Today's children... They're damned. They're gone."

James Kennedy (Center for Reclaiming America)

"The Christian community has a golden opportunity to train an army of
dedicated teachers who can invade the public school classrooms and use them
to influence the nation for Christ."

James Watt (Secretary of the Interior)

"We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand."*

*Secretary of the Interior in the Reagan Admin. Responsible for National
Policy regarding the Environment

Jay Grimstead (Coalition on Revival)

"We are to make Bible-obeying disciples of anybody that gets in our way."

Jerry Falwell

"We're fighting against humanism, we're fighting against liberalism...we are
fighting against all the systems of Satan that are destroying our nation
today...our battle is with Satan himself."

"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be
like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharoah's

"The Bible is the inerrant ... word of the living God. It is absolutely
infallible, without error in all matters pertaining to faith and practice,
as well as in areas such as geography, science, history, etc."

"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment
for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

Jesse Helms (Sen. R-NC)

"The New York Times and Washington Post are both infested with homosexuals
themselves. Just about every person down there is a homosexual or lesbian."

"Your tax dollars are being used to pay for grade-school classes that teach
our children that cannibalism, wife-swapping and murder of infants and the
elderly are acceptable behavior."

"Homosexuals are weak, morally sick wretches."

Jimmy Swaggart (Jimmy Swaggart Ministries)

"The Media is ruled by Satan. But yet I wonder if many Christians fully
understand that. Also, will they believe what the Media says, considering
that its aim is to steal, kill, and destroy?"

"Sex education classes in our public schools are promoting incest."

"Evolution is a bankrupt speculative philosophy, not a scientific fact. Only
a spiritually bankrupt society could ever believe it...Only atheists could
accept this Satanic theory."

John Ashcroft (Attorney General)

"Civilized people - Muslims, Christians, and Jews - all understand that the
source of freedom and human dignity is the Creator."

John Whitehead (Rutherford Institute)

"The [Supreme] Court, by seeking to equate Christianity with other
religions, merely assaults the one faith. The Court in essence is assailing
the true God by democratizing the Christian religion."

Joseph McCarthy (Sen. R-WI)

"Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between Communistic Atheism
and Christianity."

Joseph Morecraft (Chalcedon Presbyterian Church)

"Nobody has the right to worship on this planet any other God than Jehovah.
And therefore the state does not have the responsibility to defend anybody's
pseudo-right to worship an idol."

Joseph Scheidler (Pro-Life Action League)

"I would like to outlaw contraception...contraception is disgusting - people
using each other for pleasure.

Kay O'Connor (Kansas Senate Republican)

"I'm an old-fashioned woman. Men should take care of women, and if men were
taking care of women today, we wouldn't have to vote."

Keith A. Fournier (Catholic Way)

"We need a legal strategy which protects the rights of those of us who hold
Christian convictions which will afford us the opportunity to contend once
again for the mind of this culture."

Laura Schlessinger

"I want to coin a phrase here, and I don't mind help. What would be the
communication version of "ethnic cleansing?" Because that's what in
particular the homosexual activists try to do."

Lester Roloff (Texas Homes for Wayward Youth)

"Better a pink bottom than a black soul."*

*Roloff opened a chain of homes for "wayward" youth in the state of Texas;
he was later jailed in 1973 and again in 1975 for child abuse due to the
punitive punishment techniques used in his homes. He would have been
finished had he not of been specifically given permission to re-open his
homes by, you guested it, Governor George W Bush.

Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin

"George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United
States, he was appointed by God."

Pat Buchanan (Presidential Candidate)

"Our culture is superior. Our culture is superior because our religion is
Christianity and that is the truth that makes men free."

"There were no politics to polarize us then, to magnify every slight. The
"negroes" of Washington had their public schools, restaurants, bars, movie
houses, playgrounds and churches; and we had ours."

"Rail as they will about 'discrimination,' women are simply not endowed by
nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to
succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism."

Pat Robertson (Christian Coalition)

"The Islamic people, the Arabs, were the ones who captured Africans, put
them in slavery, and sent them to America as slaves. Why would the people in
America want to embrace the religion of slavers."

"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now
doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different...More terrible than
anything suffered by any minority in history."

"When lawlessness is abroad in the land, the same thing will happen here
that happened in Nazi Germany. Many of those people involved with Adolph
Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals - the two things seem
to go together."

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a
socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave
their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy
capitalism, and become lesbians."

"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the
Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing.
Nonsense, I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist."

"I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you
have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the
household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is,

"[Homosexuals] want to come into churches and disrupt church services and
throw blood all around and try to give people AIDS and spit in the face of

"[Planned Parenthood] is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have
adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism - everything
that the Bible condemns."

Patrick Mahoney (Christian Defense Coalition)

"It is deeply troubling to have an appointed, unelected commission remove an
elected official from office [Roy Moore]. The Court of Judiciary has
overturned an election and crushed the democratic process through their

*Interesting perspective coming from someone who's President was appointed
by a group of "unelected judges", thus overturning a democratic election.

Paul Cameron

"I think that actually AIDS is a guardian. That is I think it was sent, if
you would, about forty years ago, to destroy Western civilization unless we
change our sexual ways. So it's really a Godsend."

"Homosexuality is a crime against humanity."

"Causes of homosexuality include: 'sex with animals'"*

"Unless we get medically lucky, in three or four years, one of the options
discussed will be the extermination of homosexuals."

*Paul Cameron was discharged from the American Psychological Association,
the Nebraska Psychological Association, and the American Sociological
Association due to his unethical practices and biased research regarding
Homosexuals. His "research" has since been discredited by the scientific
community; however his work is still referenced by many fundamentalist
organizations as credible.

Randall Terry (Operation Rescue)

"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over. I want you to let a
wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian
nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this
country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."

"Our goal must be simple. We must have a Christian nation built on God's
law, on the ten Commandments. No apologies."

"I don't think Christians should use birth control. You consummate your
marriage as often as you like - and if you have babies, you have babies."

"When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee,
because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean
every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they
are tried and executed."*

"There is going to be war, [and Christians may be called to] take up the
sword to overthrow the tyrannical regime that oppresses them."

*It is interesting to note that Randell Terry's son is Gay

Jerry Vines (Southern Baptist Convention)

"They would have us believe that Islam is just as good as Christianity.
Christianity was founded by the virgin-born son of God, Jesus Christ. Islam
was founded by Muhammad, a demon-possessed pedophile who had 12 wives, the
last one of which was a nine-year-old girl."

Rick Santorum* (Sen. R-PA)

"If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [Gay] sex
within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to
polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You
have the right to anything!"

*Now known as Rick "Santorum" Santorum

Robert Simonds (Citizens for Excellence in Education)

"As the church watches from the sidelines, the ungodly elect atheists and
homosexuals to school boards and legislatures to enact policies and laws
that destroy our Christian children and discriminate against Christian

"Atheistic secular humanists should be removed from office and Christians
should be elected...Government and true Christianity are inseparable."

"We'll take away their power and their money. Money comes from students.
We'll break their backs by taking 24 million kids out of the public

Robert T. Lee (Society for the Practical Establishment of the Ten

"Raising your children under Americanism or any other principles other than
true Christianity is child abuse."

"You do not have the right to be wrong, regardless of what any man-made or
demonic charter says."

"Democracy originated in the mind of a rational being who has the deepest
hatred for God."

"Do you realize that the only thing that gives democracy existence is sin?
The absence of democracy is perfect obedience to god."

"The best way to insure the earth is never over populated is for sensible
and righteous governments to clear all forms of atheism and heresy."

Ronald Reagan (President of the United States)

"For the first time ever, everything is in place for the Battle of
Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ."

Roy Moore (Former Alabama Judge)

"If they want to get the Commandments, they're going to have to get me

"Worship With Your Vote"

*Interesting observation of the Radical Right, Judge Roy Moore commits
peaceful civil disobedience by refusing to remove the Ten Commandments
Monument from the Court. He is considered a Hero. Mayor Gavin Newsom commits
peaceful civil disobedience by issuing same-sex marriage licenses. He is
considered an Anarchist.

Rush Limbaugh

"Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the
mainstream of society."

"If you commit a crime, you're guilty."*

"There is only one way to get rid of nuclear weapons... use them"

*Seems logical enough, doesn't it Rush?

Star Parker (Coalition on Urban Renewal & Education)

"Anybody that believes in separation of church and state needs to leave
right now."

Tony Evans (Promise Keepers)

"The demise of our community and culture is the fault of sissified men who
have been overly influenced by women."

William Rehnquist (Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court)

"The 'wall of separation between church and state' is a metaphor based on
bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It
should be frankly and explicitly abandoned."

Michael Savage (Savage Nation)

"Oh, you're one of the sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig.
How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing
better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do
today, go eat a sausage and choke on it."*

My neighbor Mr. Bill runs the local airport. When questioned about the
chemtrails, he became very irate and screamed that they were just contrails.
Contrails that cover the sky from horizon to horizon and block out the sun
on most days?
At any rate, Mr. Bill, a believer in the end times and the Left Behind
series, has just removed his children from public school, a very drastic
People like Mr. Bill are the friends of the elite Republicans. They and
innumerable others constitute Big Brother. They determine across the board
who will teach, manage, edit, administrate, and litigate, because they are
money-grubbling, ass-kissing Neanderthals. They don't know anything at all
worth knowing. They suck anyone or anything to get ahead, because that is
all they care about. But all of these morons are like roosters on a pile of
dung. What does it mean to live well when the sky is a chemical nightmare
and the water smells like chlorine?
I really can't imagine how any justice manages to occur in this society, but
the TV tells me it does. The TV tells me that people are highly trained to
conduct criminal investigations using ultra-modern technologies. HA! What a
crock of shit.
I would like to see CSI investigate 9-11. Ha, ha, ha, ha.
Everything brought to you via the television and radio is mind control
bullshit. A few local programs on WMNF are not as highly controlled as the
mainstream media, but they are mostly black programs that play into
class/race divisions. As long as blacks believe whites are their enemies,
the elite are content.
The vast majority of truly educated whites revere MLK, Eldridge Cleaver,
Malcolm X, Huey Newton, etc. Whites have few leaders/speakers to equal these
men. On both sides, though, our beloved leaders were assassinated by the
American military-industrial-educational complex. Worldwide, the best of the
best (socialists) were murdered by the CIA, economic hit men, or
declarations of war.
To the average American, I would say, Everything you know and believe is
wrong. You know nothing. You are nothing but a slave.
These people serve a system that apparently rewards them well enough to
continue serving it. They stopped looking at the world after childhood and
just continue working under fascism and totalitarinism, like good Nazis.
I have been saying since I was 14, 33 years ago, that everything is wrong,
inverted, distorted, and all the angles are covered. I finally know exactly
why this is so. It took a lot for me to totally relinquish my bourgeois
conditioning. It took the loss of everything, including hope. I no longer
hope that my Ph.D. in English will ever provide me with a living wage. I
spent my life educating myself for a world that does not exist. All the
people who educated me are dead. I should be dead as well. America has no
need for the likes of me.
I am trying to tell you that I am very scared. I have been through hell for
the past seven years. I have a 600 page book on my experiences that will
never be published in this "free" country. G.W. has said that history
doesn't matter because we'll all be dead and that the Constitution is just a
piece of paper.
The fact is that the world is coming to an end. The elites have underground
cities that they built with our money. I suppose they will live there for
some time, while the ground dwellers battle it out.
The world government may be trying to give us some time by spraying us
heavily with chemtrails. It is December 18th in Florida and the temperature
is 75* at midnight, even though chemtrails obliterated the sun all day.
Something is very, very wrong.
Supposedly, the end will come during the vernal equinox on March 20th, 2006.
Who knows? Maybe that will be just the beginning of a long period of
suffering. I know that I did not reproduce because I was told of this a long
time ago. I was told the earth was dying when I was 14. Of course, nobody
believed me then, 33 years ago. People are stupid.
