Billy Graham was worth 25 million dollars. I don't want to hear this "he was different" bullshit. He was just another money hungry asshole who realized bigots would give him money if he railed against feminism and homosexuality while thumping the Bible. Fuck Billy Graham.

No pastor works hard enough to make $25 million.

I have seen so many people fawning over him today, acting like he was some goddamn hero somehow above the bullshit of "modern TV evangelists."

I call bull fucking shit. Billy Graham knew that idiot bigot Christians would line his pockets and make him a millionaire if he thumped his Bible and demonized feminists and gay folks....and he did just that until the day he fucking died.

Good riddance. The world is better off with less hatred.

Hate-mongering has always been profitable. Hate is so easy to exploit that I can see that someday a con man might just ride a wave of hate right into the Oval Office.

Oh, wait..

was worth <snort> well that's how much money he had...he wasn't truly worth a wet fart in a snow suit :)

I 100% support this.

Well hes a republican and they are always the party of God, chosen by God to lead this specific piece of land on this specific planet amongst the trillions he created. So he should be fine.

How is this not /sub/theonion?

Well we do have laws against killing the President. That alone should protect him from harm.

Which is why it's always paired with thoughts, then it's bulletproof.

"one pair of hand at work can accomplish more than a thousand clasped in prayer" or something to that effect.

Perhaps we are praying to the wrong god. I'm gonna try Odin for awhile and see what happens. He seems like a badass that will mess you up if that happened on His watch. None of that kumbaya hippie Christian shit.

Legit made me laugh.

I know this is a touchy subject but what is more likely to happen, that our govt wants to round up it citizens with semi-auto weapons or that more people (kids) die? Which is easier to control people or an object?

We have proof of which answers are easiest. What people want to “not say” is that they are OK with people dying to protect their right to have fun at a shooting range with semi-automatic weapons. Truth.

Who was it that said "morality without action is just vanity"?

It's almost as though prayer is literally nothing more than talking to yourself.

I don’t know who said this, but is the Jewish faith this is one of the core ideas taught.

I had a good Jewish buddy in the army, and he said how his rabbis would always say something like “pray like god is always listening, but act like you are the only one who can do anything”

One would think this would be obvious, but apparently Americans are struggling with the concept.

Dream on, any politician voting for this would lose the next election.

Maybe present it as taxing the Muslim churches, then when you get to office suddenly "realize" that it would be religious discrimination so oh well I guess we'll just tax all the churches

Edit: I know they're not actually called Muslim churches guys

When I delivered pizzas, churches were some of the stingiest people when ordering. On top of demanding no tax, they always wanted $6 large pizzas too. I also loved getting "have a blessed day" and a pamphlet about the church as a tip.

Edit: Obviously this doesn't apply to all churches. As some have said, I've also gotten decent tips from some churches. But from my experience, the majority are what I described.

They can still get credit for their charitable work, but why should a middle class family pay twice(once in the pews, and then on the W-2s) to subsidize Osteen and Creflo Dollars' mansions and jets?

All fun and games until some religious judge confirms something like this and makes a precedence based on some 'right to not be offended' legislature.

The Religion of Peace.

With regards to how premarital sex nearly became illegal in Indonesia - the motion only failed by 1 vote. 4 out of 9 judges wanted to make any sex outside marriage illegal.

Since abortion is also illegal, a pregnant unmarried woman is basically in deep shit. Aborting the baby is illegal, but continuing the pregnancy is also illegal since that would be evidence she had premarital sex.

More proof islam and sharia law are for equal rights and peace.

Can you feel the love.

There is zero doubt all those who voted on it have their favourite hookers on speed dial

What's the countdown until this guy gets outed for being gay and/or outed for paying for his mistresses' abortions? Those are always the best articles, when one of these idiots gets outed for being a hypocrite.

I’d like the pastor to show me the part specifically in the Bible where having an abortion necessitates death of the mother.

On the contrary. According to Numbers, there's a trial by ordeal to find out if the woman has been cheating on the husband. If she's pregnant with another man's offspring, the ordeal will actually force an abortion.

So, having an affair necessitates the death of the "baby."

Fox will usually retroactively identify them (post scandal) as being affiliated with the democratic party.

They're not wrong.

I do love the Serbian girl trying to help and her strait up insightful Street Epistimologist question. "How can you be so sure of this?"

Even though it probably wouldn't have lead anywhere.

“I’m from the USA!!!”

/facepalm

Hell yeah! How's it going people?

I like this lady already. Then they ask for her passport.

Can you tell me what law I broke?

Perfect setup to look stupid in 3. 2. 1..

Well this is Serbia, you Serbians are loud people anyways.

Mission accomplished. Way to make Americans look good lady.
