It is well known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans, that Pokemon's pro-Darwinism propaganda is inescapable...

Is this related to Landover Baptist at all? The fact that they dedicate a page to it seems like it could be a joke also.

They also have this on their site. Have they no sense of humor?

This can't be real!

Funny shit. Good find, but it is part of the Landover joke. Its just folding in on itself and adding layers. One layer is the anti-landover page, so don't go and think any of this is real.
The baby jesus page is so awesome. I'm going to start emailing that link to people who annoy me.

Oh, and check out this word from their sponsors. I have a feeling that too will be a useful link.

Paedobaptism Is "Wack"

All this time I'd thought it was pretty "dope".

If you like your faux Christians a little more literary, there's Father Gasslalasca Jape created by Ambrose Bierce, and now resurrected in a blog and quarterly column.

It was the last few times this site was linked to. Not a double post, but this site's kind of well-known.

Creationists really get me irritated, here's a real site with their list of irritating arguments.
It would be just as funny as landover, but it's real.
grr. I have to go kick something now.

Milovoo, I prescribe a dose of Penn and Teller's "Bullshit!" episode on creationism. You'll feel much better. Trust me.

Klingons for Christ is a place to discover the teachings of Christ in a new light. No disrespect to any faith, race, aliens, or fans is intended. But the way of the Klingon Warrior can, and should, include the teachings of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Christians and BDSM: You have probably wondered how it could be possible to be a Christian and still be able to practice BDSM. By now, hopefully, you've seen in these pages that it is possible to live life as a Christian and still enjoy the BDSM lifestyle.

However, if you're reading this, then you probably can't answer for sure life's most important question... Are you saved? You are not sure if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, or if you are still a born again child of the King of Kings.

The links to this site now redirect to a sign-up page for web1000.com

What a great advert for them: what we host, we won't deliver.

Christian porn stars. Douglas: Speaking of autobiographies, can you tell me your testimony-how you came to Christ.

CP: That's a really great story. We were filming a love scene in a church, and I overheard the pastor telling the director all about Jesus. The director blew him off, but I wanted to hear more. So after the love scene was over, I found the pastor and asked to hear more. He told me how Jesus died for my sins and that accepting him would let me have a personal, one on one, relationship with God.

Or possibly two-on-one if God's feeling really hot.

Yes, it's related to Landover Baptist. Kind of a counter-ministry from the same people.

"Take for example Apple Computers, makers of the popular Macintosh line of computers. The real operating system hiding under the newest version of the Macintosh operating system (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. They try to hide all of this under a facade of shiny, "lickable" buttons, but the truth has finally come out: Apple Computers promote Godless Darwinism and Communism."

Best laugh I've had all month. Thank you many many times over isol!

That Christian BDSM site is truly scary:

Does [Christian BDSM] differ from "secular" BDSM?

It does differ from secular BDSM in that the relationship is (or should be) confined to a husband and wife in male dominant/female submissive roles. Also, the Bible is the ultimate authority...
