    Since the evil gay agenda was brought up, you can help make The Gay Agenda a reality. I’ve already pledged, and my person suggestion, George Takei has been drawn, which I’m still all excited about.

    I’d love to see someone, anyone, in allegedly “godless,” “liberal” Hollywood to do a parody of these fundie propaganda films.

    God is a boob man, so *that* explains my unilateral gynecomastia! And here, I thought it was simply the hyperthyroidism (as does my endocrinologist).
    But, that also explains the GOP candidate lineup, “God loves boobs”.
    Or something.

    Isn’t it also odd that Christianity has traditionally assigned their deity a gender, but preform all manner of mental contortion acts to claim that their Messiah was created WITHOUT sexual intercourse? Why can’t an omnipotent female deity cause a virgin to conceive? What’s the point of giving your god a superfluous penis?

    Could it be that Yahweh/Jehovah/Allah/Eloheim grew out of an earlier pantheon of gods and goddesses who were given human attributes like sexual desire and the need to procreate? Maybe the exclusively male founders of the monotheistic Abrahamic faiths were just too chauvinistic to recognize the obvious plot hole in their mythology?

    To quote the poet-sage Bugs Bunny: Hmmmmmm….Could be….

    Actually, the writers missed a great opportunity to make some real bucks. If they had just upped the skit to an hour and a half and gotten it on a few movie screens they would have made a pile of Christian cash. Separating reality from make-believe was never the strong suit of fundies.

    Well, Akira, there seems to have been a godess in ancient times, but she mysteriously was edited out of the religious texts.
    There still remain extant monuments to that godess. Archeology is cool, it digs up that which was forgotten or edited out of history. :)

    I think it’s well established that the Abrahamic religions evolved out of predecessors that were pantheistic. Yahweh’s psychotic obsession with “having no gods before me” shows that.

    The Jewish religion evolved out of the pantheistic religions that existed at that time, in that region.

    The doctrine that the empyreal realm is populated by characters such as Satan & various ranks of angels & demons is simply pantheism where the chief god has been promoted and the minor gods have been demoted.

    Yeah it is, it’s even in the bible – Genesis. El Shaddai mentions the other gods more than once. The reason he’s so fucking terrified of the first couple getting to the tree of knowledge is that it would make them gods, like us.

    There are also bits that were obviously lifted from earlier belief, just the names were changed. The writers could hardly be arsed to change any details outside of names.

    dick @ 9

    When you say “pantheistic” (i.e. The belief that nature is an all-encompassesibg god), I think you mean “polytheistic” (i.e. the belief in the existence of multiple deities).

  10. dick says

    Akira, thanks for the correction. Yeah, I meant polytheism. (That’s a bit worrying, though. I was hoping to stave off dementia for a bit longer.)

    Ah yes, the Holey Baguette. That is something I could worship.

    No problem. I initially understood what you meant, but I’m a geek and we have a nasty habit of being publicly pedantic.

    Akira MacKenzie @ #6 — Welcome to the 5th century. Essentially, that was the burning question of the day. The debate had been broiling for a couple of centuries across the Roman world and the various popular cults…some Jewish/Christian, some not. In any case, that’s when Christianity as we know it was invented.

    There can be no such thing as a superfluous penis!
    Penii are the entire point of existence!

    Nope, it’s the worship of Bread, which is risen for you.

    Not if Adonai has a say in the matter! (Well, depending on the time of year.)

    And now I just looked this up, and according to Wikipedia, the use of leavened vs unleavened bread in the Eucharist was likely a factor in the divide between Eastern and Western Christianity.

    @ Akira, #6:

    What’s the point of giving your god a superfluous penis?

    That’s a really good question. Does the Christian god have a penis?
    I mean, the recent spate of bathroom bills are based on the idea that sexual identity is dependent on genitals. So wouldn’t the logical corollary be that the Christian god must have a penis in order to be male? And if he doesn’t need a physical penis to be male, then maybe Christians should stop being such assholes to trans people. Actually, they should just stop that anyway.

  19. says

    Actually, Yahweh *is* straight, or bisexual at most. He apparently had a wife, Asherah.

    …and boy did he go bat-shagging nuts when she divorced him. Spent centuries sulking, then raped some poor underage Jewish girl and killed the kid. Asherah was smart to get the hell out of town when she did.

    @26 malta: as some fundie called Navaros once said:

    No, God’s Penis is not a biological organ. I never said God’s Penis was the same as man’s penis. Obviously it wouldn’t be. That is why I pointed out God has a Holy, Righteous Penis. That is to say, it’s not the same as man’s corrupted, fleshy one.

    As I said when this subject first came up, once again: Penises are not just for sex & peeing. It is only because man is evil that he thinks of penises exclusively in those terms.

    Man is made in the image of God the Father. That is the primary reason why man has a penis.

    You cannot insert your evil prejudicial ideas of man’s penis onto God – which is exactly what you are doing. God’s Penis is not equal to man’s penis. It’s really not hard to understand.


  21. wzrd1 says

    Does that mean that God’s penis has ovaries attached?
    Modern medicine calls that cliteromegaly.
