This is a pretty definitive example of religiostupidification .

C’mon Byron.  The book talks about our firemen.
OUR FIREMEN :shock:

And you don’t want it banned?!!!


You have to give some credit to the news channel that covered this; they didn’t try to hide the guy’s stupidity.

What do I care for a hell for oppressors? What good can hell do, since those children have already been tortured? And what becomes of harmony, if there is hell? I want to forgive. I want to embrace. I don’t want more suffering. And if the sufferings of children go to swell the sum of sufferings which was necessary to pay for truth, then I protest that the truth is not worth such a price.

This whole thing is about a guy named “Alton Verm” in a place called “Conroe, Texas”. Conroe, Texas, for all intents and purposes, is in the Bible Belt.

Alton Verm is a good name for a space alien. An anagram for “Alton Verm” is “Revolt Man”. Another one is “Not Marvel”.

I like “Molar Vent”.

For Conroe, Texas, I like “COASTER OXEN” and “SEX CROON TEA” and “EXCRETA SOON”.

I thought that was pretty impressive too, actually.

I think it would be considered a pretty gentle treatment in most of the Industrialized Western World though.
