"Dr." James Kennedy of Ft Lauderdale FL - nutcase

this out-of-this-world preacher is attacking the "radical agenda" and "secular agenda" of the ACLU on his preaching show called the "Coral Ridge Hour" on ABC TV from 7:50-8am, i.e., just after the preaching portion of his show, he provides his socio-political angle of the USA - what an idiot - he is one example of the worst of US society today - ABC should balance this programming with a program entirely devoted to the ACLU

he started his show by presenting a premise that "everyone spends most of their money on 'death'", citing police protection and armies for war for protection from terrorism, because we want to protect ourselves from death - what an idiot - he might as well include food and air, which may be considered under the purview of our government agencies (FDA, EPA, etc.) - yet what is he doing to better our society? - by preaching - why doesn't he become a real doctor? - then maybe his false and destructive tune would change

I’m from Miami with it’s own share of conservative catholic whack-jobs,mostly cuban-americans. I don’t know much about your neck of
the woods in virginia,but isn’t it atleast skating along the “bible-belt”?


  I would truly love to see the results of a full neuropsychological
battery performed on these christian cranks. The scary thing is,
many,if not most would probably score atleast average on the
IQ parts of the test and a significant number would be relatively
free of any major mental disorders that would explain their
titanic irrationality.

  Many serial killers and otherwise manicial humans seem to
elude these sort of tests.I believe,like the serial killers,christians
like Kennedy(their’s more than enough of them these days) are
motivated more by all-too-human power,fear,insecurity etc…
I do believe you would see common traits on the aforementioned
tests. Offical diagnoses of one or more major psych disorders
would probably be high among many,but certainly not found
in all or, mabye even most christians.

  Thus we have different motivating factors for the christian side-show.
  One thing is certain, they are the most irrational humans that have
  ever walked the earth. I believe the only reason they are not among
the most dangerous (anymore) is for want of opportunity. It’s our job
to keep it that way and I think Harris has pointed out that many rationalists,free-thinkers or what have you are slacking big time.The
democrats have mostly laid an egg,IMO. Pretty miraculous for a jacka**.

  I really believe what you are seeing is the last,desperate breaths
of a dying religion. It may not seem that way,but consider a few
things and you might agree.I am somewhat engaging in an educated
guess,so I could be wrong. I think christianity in the west is somewhat
age-related. That is, younger one is, the less likely they are to be a
christian, atleast a serious and exceptionally loony one.Yes, there probably has been somewhat of a “youth revival” However,I think
with all the global turmoil of recent years,we are beset with a plague
of idealists.That is a situation that has it’s pros and cons. Many older
christers are astute enough to know this and do their best to capture
the “fragile egg-shell minds” of youth and mold youthful idealism to
their will. I think for the most part,the younger people will grow out
of this idiocy.

  The old will die off and most of the young will eventually lose faith.
Who then will be left to carry the torch in the west,especially in america.
Christianity in other western countries is in roughly the same condition
John Paul II was a few months ago. Since I have mentioned the papal-smear bull, the recent blunder of the cardinals will speed up the RCC
demise atleast in the west. There are only two problems as I see it and
they are as follows:

  1) Christians,mostly in america seem to be intent on a hilter-like,
circa 1945, “gotterdamurung” (sic). All we can do is (I hate to sound cruel
but nevertheless) hope the old ones buy the farm sooner,rather than latter and young ones grow out of it quick.I also think we ought gird up our loins and fight their madness (with all legal and common-sense ethical
means ofcourse) to the best of our ability.

2) Christianity in the developing world may result in some undesireable
  circumstances but probably nothing close to Islam.Since Islam is
  quite prevelent and mabye growing in the developing world it will
  be a major factor in balancing the influence/idiocies of christianity.
  But the Islamic dilemma probably won’t be going away anytime soon,though there are some hopeful signs.

  Well, i’ve rambled on long enough. There is probably some significant
flaws in my ideas here but I think there is atleast something of worth within them. If you see a crazy old man totting the “malleus malficarium”
in one hand and a medieval weapon in the other,run!!!

Dr. James Kennedy is most of the most elegant, gentle, thought provoking, civically relevant, modern day preachers. And when I say gentle, I mean gentle.

The man peppers his sermons with facts….facts…..facts…. His conclusions are based on facts…..facts…..facts.

I enjoy listening to him because he has a sophistication and depth that appeals intellectual side. Oh yes, I still enjoy fire and brimstone preachers, but Kennedy is an absolute joy to listen and learn from.

Not surprisingly, he is being attacked on this forum. Who’s next? Dr. James Dobson?

(Just a thought, but could the “whack job” actually be the topic originator and he/she not even know it?)

not quite “gentle” at all, TheChampion - he breathes hate rhetoric - he clearly supported the present Bush as a blind man trying to guide others - he is vehement - perhaps you are the “champion” of “whack jobs”?

Dr. James Dobson is simple-minded suburban pastor. His smarmy self-righteousness is a dead giveaway of some dark secrets in his closet - you just know he’s covering something up.

Dobson has been an enormous help to families in general. I have seen him in interviews and I have not detected any vain puffing up or self rightousness. Can you give me an example please. grin

Humanism, the Enlightenment, and atheism - according to James K, these are all equal and all represent darkness, despair and death

instead, James says to turn to christ for light, eternal life and paradise

he obviously doesn’t understand how christianity itself seeks DEATH on this planet in order to achieve “paradise” in an afterlife, so christianity itself is clearly preoccupied with DEATH, not atheism, not humanism, and certainly not the Enlightenment

what an idiot spewing vile false nonsense to a desperately receptive audience (except myself)

does he motivate everyone to make life better for those on this planet - not quite - he actually has found a niche in preaching where does not need to learn math or science - he especially does not use proper logic, and avoids the scientific method - hiis analogies are false and much of his audience actually accept his twisted logic as truth!

he is really destroying life on this planet in order to promote his views of an afterlife - following james is to follow death and despair and to ignore the wonders of math and sciences and the arts, the perfect manifestation of what anyone can attribute to a concept of a “supreme being” - so instead of studying and learning what is measurable and detectable all around us in this world, james prefers to use the bible to spew out his desperate attacks on humanity itself

this is a very NEGATIVE individual and deserves NO support for his coral ridge hour

now he is using technology to contine his vehement broadcasts without ever giving any thanks to all those scientists and engineers who made all the technology possible

what a monster!

james kenndy’s sermon this morning from 7-7:30am (May 15) seemed to be the most secular ever since I paid attention to him several years ago

he argued that although the bible appears on a first inspection to be in favor of socialism, it is actually in favor of ownership of private property - he said that the commandment “thou shalt not steal” proves divine appeal for private property

I am certainly in favor of private property in the form of intellectual property, but I never thought it could be traced back to a “god”‘s decree or a “god”‘s desire that it be so

unfortunately, kennedy muddles socialism with communism - does he really think that there is no private ownership in Europe? - if his audience listens to this warped logic, they will be even more confused than before, believing that “god” was the initiator of private ownership of property

maybe kennedy thinks that the “socialist” countries of central and south america deny private ownership to its citizens - quite the contrary - private ownership in those “socialist” (or “communist” according to kennedy’s muddled approach) exists, but not for everyone, of course - that’s the problem - faith has nothing to do with private ownership being permitted in any country, whether capitalistic or socialistic - a person simply has an innate need to own something they can identify as their own - nothing spiritual about it - this again shows how kennedy does not follow normal logic - and he wants to expand his empire (i.e., his “possessions”) to his own distorted view of this world - an unsustainable myopic view, just like g bush

Why is it that the tube is so full of the religious right yet we don’t have a single spokesperson for “our” side with a regular program?  Perhaps our side does not have a singular point of view.

Barry Lynn of Americans United has both the skill and likely the resources but he is only an advocate of separation of church and state and is not a humanist or atheist.

Any suggestions for a program or a host?

Stay Well

Hey Wotansson, don’t worry, you’ll have one for sure eventually. His name will be The AntiChrist. He will take your side to a whole new level. grin

I watch most of the christian shows because they are such a hoot, especially james kennedy - he particularly likes to apply faulty and convoluted logic to support his distorted observations of society - like the sermon he gave this past sunday (5/15) where he made no distinction between communism and socialism - and argued how wnnderful capitalism is

so james kennedy argued clearly in favor of capitalism - but then he also argued for charity - seems he was arguing himself into a corner, as he often does - listen cartefully and take notes, and you will quickly see his fallacious arguments appear

also, he starts and ends each broadcast with a plea for more money and he explains the several new organizations he is forming that are intended to “shape” society into his image - people (like “champion” who express agreement with his views are equally nonsensical, i.e., absurd

so, most of these religious “leaders” are fun to watch for a laugh and for their entertainment value

They would be, especially if you forget that they are as serious as a heart attack!  Kennedy and his ilk are after nothing else but a theocracy, and if you doubt that, read his “What if America Was a Christian Nation Again.”  I guarantee it will stop the laughter!

I think that our society can withstand such out-of-control religious “leaders” when they take too much control of our society to enforce their views

they are taking advantage of their “nonprofit” status to accumulate wealth, thinking (as Jim Bakker did) that “god” “wanted” it that way - eventually the “nonprofit” status will be revisited and this unbalanced situation will be corrected - that’s what I believe

for example, is Australia’s rupert murdock a “religious” individual? - is “salem communications” the voice of “god”? - is our media being controlled by such “religious” nuts when, in fact, they simply want to live an excessively padded life on this planet at the expense of all else - the truth shows that idiotic media, such as Fox, damage society with their inaccurate, distorted reporting - the worst offenders are persons such as james kennedy, who are taking advantage of their tax breaks to dictate absurd points of view on the rest of us

I wish they would be charged taxes for ALL the technology they consume to perpetuate their anti-technology (and anti-science) views - this imbalance needs to be corrected
