The videos of those preachers spewing hate, ignorance, and stupidity bring images of toxic waste dumps, radioactive waste disposals, and scorched earth scenarios to my mind.

"A Catholic diocese in Poland apologized on Thursday for having asked a court to determine whether a man who was sexually abused as a child by a priest is gay, and whether the sexual contact may have consequently been pleasurable for him."

...nope. Got no words for that- not so much as a single word sufficiently venomous for that, right there. A string of invectives consisting of the worst every language known to humanity has to offer might just come up *just* short of sufficiently caustic.

Drawing and quartering is too gentle for these bastards.

Joe Jones: " 'For one believeth that he may eateth all things; another who is weak eateth herbs' [Romans 14:2, KJV]

"And you know what, that just kinda gives you, you know, the vegan diet right there in a nutshell. You know, it makes you weak! It destroys your brain, right? You ought not to be a vegan"

Easily and thoroughly refuted -- Daniel 1:11-16 (NIV):

"Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, [Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego], 'Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food*, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.' So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.

"At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food*. So the guard took away their choice food* and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead."

(* "royal food", "choice food" = meat)

BTW, here is Romans 14:2 AND 3, NIV:

"2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them."

Clearly, Jones's exegesis is FAR wide of the actual intended meaning of the verses

Deliberately, I'd hazard -- Jones obviously has an axe to grind and his own agenda

Evolutionary biologist Forrest Valkai does a great job quickly breaking down a FOX News piece . . .

Hey! That's my chair.
