    The real operating system hiding under the newest version of the Macintosh ... (MacOS X) is called ... Darwin! That's right, new Macs are based on Darwinism! While they currently don't advertise this fact to consumers, it is well-known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans. Furthermore, the Darwin OS is released under an 'Open Source' license, which is just another name for Communism. ... The truth has finally come out: Apple Computers promote Godless Darwinism and Communism.
        --Dr. Richard Paley, teacher of divinity and theobiology at Fellowship University


Y'know...someone needs to find these people, and manage to pull their heads from their collective asses. It's sound-bites like the one from Dr. Paley here -- or statements like that the Harry Potter books are trying to lure children to Satanist ways -- which give Christianity and undeservedly bad name and reputation on the Internet. I'm all for morality and you know, I /do/ believe in God. I just don't believe that God doesn't want me to read the Harry Potter books, or that MacOS is a tool of Satan. (After all, isn't Windows 9x much more clearly demonic in origin?)

Just...sometimes, the levels of fanaticism that humanity can sink to amazes me.

Here's how I look at it...

God's gotta run the Universe. Do you honestly think he has time to be worried about little Harry Potter or apple computers?
"Fellowship University" does not exactly strike me as a hotbed of superlative academic credentials. :> Sounds like a religious business college.
Well, in the early eighties we had 'My guitar wants to kill your mama' (Dweezil Zappa), and Beelzebubba (Dead Milkmen); in the later eighties, there was 'Jesus Built My Hot Rod' (Ministry).

Does this mean we have to start sticking Ixthous bumper stickers on our IBM-compatibles to protect them if they're anywhere near a Mac?

BE HEALED! BY THE POWER OF JAY-ZUS, I SAY UNTO THEE, O NONFUNCTIONAL SOUND CARD, BE HEALED!

Ah, here's the problem, ma'am! You had yourself one o' them unbaptized sound cards! Here, get yerself a properly _Christian_ SOUND BLASTER into that there box.

Ahem. Scary stuff.
What, and they don't think Windows XP is blasphemous? XP being the greek letters for Christ... :P
