The last video uploaded by them in my feed reader is a SNL sketch. It may be that NBC took issue with them.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

We would not tolerate it if religion were not involved.


Ummmm...

Doesn't that kind of ignore generations of folk tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Chicken Little, etc.; as well as a ton of popular media that have nothing to do with religion?

Scaring children with stories both true and fictional is not synonymous with religion, nor is it exclusive to it.

Should we attempt to pass laws that prevent parents from telling their children to finish their peas because there are people starving in other parts of the world? Or how about telling them things like "I swear Timmy! If you don't get in this house right this instant, you are *never* going out again! Do you hear me?"

I'd say it's a safe bet that most people on this forum have been exposed this "disgusting" "child abuse."

*sigh*

Nothing irritates me more when I see people whose stance I agree with making horrible arguments for their case.

Go to: Logical Proof of the Existence of a Divine Creator, Why Atheism is Not Logically Sound

Let's put aside the fact that I've never heard an atheist or scientist claim that the Universe came about randomly from nothing...

Let's pretend that they *do* make that argument (just for a second).

According to this article:

Universe coming about randomly from nothing == irrational

Divine creator coming about randomly from nothing != irrational.

mmmmmm'kay....
