    A friend of mine just sent me this link. Is this church/man for real? This is horrifying. Please tell me this is a joke.

    Did you see the ads?? I don't think this is real, just a marketing ploy. Sad isn't it?

    Yeah, I think you are right. I found this on Wikipedia

    The Landover Baptist Church is a fictional[1] Baptist church based in the fictional town of Freehold, Iowa. The Landover Baptist web site and its associated Landoverbaptist.net Forum are a satire of fundamentalist Christianity and the Religious Right in the United States.

    Shew...what a relief.

    Of course it's not a joke, there are folks like that everywhere especialy in Churches. I think you just have to be realistic and just take it for what's it's worth, good or bad and decide for yourself most folks are capable of figuring it out.

    Oh I definitely agree that there are a lot of people like this out there, and especially in fundamentalist churches. I steer very clear of those kinds of people...actually, I steer clear of all churches too. LOL.

Folks around here wear their religion on their sleeves like a cheap suit.

    Quote:Way to generalize. As a Christian, I find your slur beyond offensive. I defy you to find people "like that" everywhere. Salem Mass, like slaveholding in the South, is a part of our history, not of our present.

    Just trying to be realistic, not wanting to start anything. I know this religion topic is sensitive, but this guy is a clergyman and yes there are many church leaders who feel and preach as he does. All I am saying is responsible people can judge for themselfs.
