And yes, they do trot out the occasional Julia "Butterfly" Hill, who...those she does not seem to have any proof of susatainable income....seems to wont to live in any tree that's about to be cut by a strip mall.
But when it comes to sheer insanity, nothing beats our friends at the far left of the room. Especially the pinheads who work for our dear friend, Donald "NoNeck" Wildmon of the American Family ASSociation.
Apperently not satisfied with trying to deny equal rights to about 10% of this country, Donny Dear has created a newsletter, not unlike WorldNetDaily, called OneNewsNow. The latest issue that greeted me in me e-mail contained various and sundry screeds, such as Mr. Obama's link to a "radical" gay organisation called GLSEN, that is allegedly planning to "teach" ho-mo-sex-yoo-al-let-tee to our kids in skool (yea, like www.thinkbeforeyouspeak.com that teaches kids why it is not a good idea to call any kids, gay or straight names). And another saying the the Big Networks are paying the price for thier "liberal bias." If you can find some please let me know. And while you are at it, let me know when you find FoxNews' missing audience, whic has declined steadily over the last year.
But the craziest one yet is this: Mattel...the house of BARBIE, for God's sake...is in league with Radical Islam (to them Islam is ALWAYS radical).
Here is the story.....I shat you not:
Some concerned parents have contacted the Mattel toy company with allegations that one of its dolls utters words which promote Islam.
While the doll appears to utter "Islam is the light," the company denies that is actually what it is programmed to say. Mattel insists that Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo features realistic baby sounds, including cooing, giggling, and baby babble, with no real sentence structure. The toy company claims the only scripted word the doll says is "mama."
Mattel also contends that because the original sound track is compressed into a file that can be played through an inexpensive toy speaker, actual sounds may be imprecise or distorted. Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, is skeptical about Mattel's explanation.
"It does seem to be saying, 'Islam is the light.' I don't think too many people would argue with that, so I think they're being a little disingenuous," Markell points out. "And this is not a healthy thing to be putting out in the marketplace when we're in a war on terror, and little children are so susceptible to the messages they hear -- even from a doll -- then to take them into the school and talk about them. So yeah, this is a serious thing."
Mattel admits the doll makes a sound that may resemble the words "night," right," or "light." To avoid any potential misinterpretation, they have eliminated that segment of the sound file from future production.
Now the afore mentioned Ms. Markel runs the also-afore-mentioned Olive Tree Ministries. On thier website, they talk about "phophetic signs, current issues, and the Messianic Jewish movement." On that site they also talk about...well, let's let the site speak for itself:
It says in Revelation 13 that there will some day be a one world system; a one world government. Some have termed this “the new world order”. Another term heard frequently that means the same thing is “globalism”. Various organizations are playing into this. The leading ones include the United Nations, the European Union, and NATO, but more minor players would be world trade organizations like the “North American Free Trade Association” (NAFTA). The Antichrist will be the chief globalist and will head up this one world system during the Tribulation. The stage is being set.
That page talks about the omniprescent computer chips that supposedly are marked "666," worldwide currencies that are not The Dollar, and various NWO matters.
Then there are thoughts on "The Rapture" (not the 80's Blondie rap hit)"
|The Three Quarters Rapture Theory |
--> Posted to Prophecy for October, 2008
Robert Van Kampen was the inventor of the three-quarters rapture theory in the late 1970s. According to one who was there, he first eliminated pretribulationism and then excluded posttribulationism. Thus, he had to come up with another view. That view is what he called the "pre-wrath" rapture theory. That title is a misnomer, since pretribulationism is 100% pre-wrath. If we follow consistency in labeling, Van Kampen's view should be called the three-quarters rapture position, since he teaches that the church will be raptured somewhere in the middle of the last three and a half years of the 70th week of Daniel.
In other words, this is the woman who thinks a doll is summoning little girls to wear burkas. No to mention the type of person who seems to be an inspiration to as certain Alaskan hockey mom mentioned recently.
Maybe even large sections of an entire political party.
Another round of strait-jackets, please. And please don't damage the rubber on the walls.
