More losers in the news

In the wee early hours of last Saturday morning, we had a tragic house fire here in Menomonie, in which three UW-Stout (our local university) students died. Yesterday at the funeral, there were four protesters there from some wacko group in Kansas that were happy about the fire, saying that the students died because of all Wisconsinites' sinful ways.

Here's the link from the local paper:

Worst kind of scum...

Not to make light of the situation, but worshiping Bret Favre is idolatry. ;-)

That said, there was also a fire in Hermantown, MN where a lady died...she was my dad's cousin.

Sorry to hear that dB.

Yea Jim, that is sick. Obviously this church does not recognize one simple christian postulate. There is a God and you're not him! That is quite the quantum leap in judgement prowess. Another group we can drop ship into the middle east, so they can be with others who so concreatly speak for their God. I wonder if they get 72 virgins too?

I saw the greatest joke the other day about 72 virgins, MadTV or something, i forget...a suicide bomber gets to heaven and it's a group of 72 male trekkies, computer geeks and miscellaneous dorks...very funny.

Yeah, Jim, what they did is sick, like in Minneapolis for a while when soldiers from Iraq were buried protesters were at the funeral saying they deserved it...

Oh Fred Phelps...

Kansans disown him completely. He's the d-bag that protests at military funerals, holds up 'God Hates Fags' signs, and thinks that 9/11 was God's punishment for America.

I hate that guy, he's based in Topeka. His church has like, 80 members, all or most of them are his family.

Does he have a lot of nephews and neices that are his sons and daughters too?

Check out Jeff Dunham on the web for some good lines about the 72 virgins. Between Walter and Achmed the dead terrorist it's a stich.

Probably not. He's too conservative for that.

I've seen some of his interviews on news networks. He's really insane.

a true conservative never protests anything... because they like the way it is... So that guy is obviously a liberal. :)

Haha. I like the Robin Williams joke about the 72 virgins. Saying, "It was a misinterpretation and that they will be met with with 72 angry Virginians." :D

Not trying to be funny here, but why is that a town near here has six separate "First Baptist" churches.

(a) How are they all "First"?
(b) Why are the so different? Haven't they got it all figured out the same? Are all baptists so different?

Again, I'm genuinely interested here - not making fun or light of anyone's faith. I wasn't raised a Christian so I have no real depth here. Don't you all have the same God & such? Is there really that much room to move on the "word"?

The above story is just wrong.

Are all baptists so different?

yes. The Baptist church embraces organizational freedom... which leads to churchs splitting due to theological rifts,,, sort of like what the Episcopal Church USA is doing on a national level. Baptists however don't strictly adhere to a national convention like Anglican and Catholic churchs do.

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump. I ran over and said: "Stop. Don't do it."

"Why shouldn't I?" he asked.

"Well, there's so much to live for!"

"Like what?"

"Are you religious?"

He said: "Yes."

I said: "Me too. Are you Christian or Buddhist?"


"Me too. Are you Catholic or Protestant?"


"Me too. Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"


"Wow. Me too. Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

"Baptist Church of God."

"Me too. Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

"Reformed Baptist Church of God."

"Me too. Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?"

He said: "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915."

I said: "Die, heretic scum," and pushed him off. [/quote]

The currents joke in the episcopal church regarding it's division is the fact that of all places the ECUSA splitoffs are aligning with the church of nigeria...they just have to forward the 10% of the $50million money order...

About all of the 'First Baptists' my understanding that it is supposed to be a 'location thing'... but there are a dozen different 'national conventions' they can belong to... and they don't have to belong to any to be called baptist... so if you have a southern baptist and and an american baptist...and a world baptist... they can each be the 'first baptist' of their convention in that particular town..I think...

One of the Students is a person I knew personally. Amanda Jean Rief, 20, of Chaska was the daughter of one of my secretaries from years ago when I was the production manager and designer for an electrical control company.

It is very sad that idiots are turned loose on the streets of a place they know nothing about and are thanking God for taking the life of someone they don't have a clue about.

Nuff said.

Awkward : a wedding reception where the groom is a Baptist and the wife is a Mormon.

We have one Baptist college that has denounced every student it has turned out after they leave and start their own Parish, Church, Congragation.... That is not to knock the religion. I think it is important to understand all religions are man made. God inspired, yes; but so is birth; just to add perspective. I often practice catholisizm among others. A lot of people think the catholic church is somehow extreamly unified and of a singular mind. Next contestant please. Over the years I've talked with many priests, nuns of many different diciplines within catholisizm. Widely spread phylosphies to say the least.
