idol quiz

How can so many people have spiritual hardening of the thought life? Is the secret of Scripture that Lot's wife actually got it right? I live within rocket range of "Christian" right folks who are arming themselves for the coming faith wars. At least answering with "A's" would get the target off my butt from them. I have a friend who thinks Tammy Faye is hot. I drug his Kool-Aid.

Talk about dogmatic.....!

Talk about dogmatic. I'm a rightwingfascistevangelicalhomophobebigotfundie and neither A) nor B) fit for me in the quiz.
I guess it's good that you don't take your faith too seriously. You may want to apply the same humility with regard to your intellect and sense of humor. Whoever came up with those quiz questions is just as dogmatic as Robertson and Falwell. Anyway, dogmatism is not a sin when applied to demonstrable truth. But I bet you don't believe in such a concept. So, if there is no truth, then who is wrong? (not me)
Seems like you've got a nice sycoFANtClub here. Isn't that something you hate about Limbaugh? Where's the dissent?(besides me, a driveby ranter)
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I detect in the tone of the preceding article and its responses so far that you folks hate people who don't share your relativist views and treat them with middle-school style derision. Is that a demonstration of your commitment to diversity?
Does this qualify as mutual autopsy?

Speaking of religious symbols, have you heard the one about the bread and the wine? It goes something like this: If Jesus is smart enough to get into the bread, Jesus is smart enough to get out.

The quiz

Dear Editor,
Is it okay for a Christian to watch American Idol?

Julia: You raise other theological questions. For example, if Jesus did drown in James Dobson's washing machine, would anyone's sins be "cleansed" as a result? The answers, I'm afraid, will just have to come out in the wash.

I have a question about idolatry maybe someone could answer. Since James Dobson keeps Jesus in his shirt pocket, what would happen if Dobson's wife threw his shirt into the washing machine without checking and Jesus drowned? Would she have murdered Christ? And if so, would Dobson demand the death penalty for her? With his clout she'd probably get it!
