A Small Sample of Landover Baptist Mail Received
June 2005 (unedited and in original form)
I am just curious if you even read the information about the four
winged dinosaur fossils they found in China. If you did, you would
know that these animals were about 3 feet long... Which doesn't really
seem like evidence that giant dinosaurs like this existed to carry
Noah's son around the world. Unless, perhaps, you are suggesting
people and all other animals used to be very small, maybe just a few
inches tall! Furthermore, the dinosaur is "built," as you would say,
for gliding, probably from tree to tree, and not for flying long
distance trips around the world.
All of this is irrelevant, though, when you consider the logistical
nightmare (read impossibility) of fitting millions and millions of
species on one relatively small (450 foot) boat. I can accept your
blind faith that God created a miracle that they could all fit, but
why would you even bother to try and explain the gathering of these
animals scientifically with your giant flying dinosaur theories that
YOU made up and AREN'T supported by the scientific community, as you
claim. Just save yourself some trouble and stick with the theory that
God snapped his fingers and Noah was able to gather all the species
around where he was.

Your website is a horrible, misleading piece of work. The fact that your banner says Unsaved Not Welcome is extremely disturbing to me as a Christian. Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and that includes everyone. How else do you suppose that people can actually be introduced to Jesus and achieve salvation if Unsaved people are not welcome. That is disgusting for you to have this in your banner. These are the people we should be reaching out to the most. Your website content also seems to be demented, clearly not biblical. I have no idea where you get these ideas from, but surely Jesus didn't command most of these things you have in your website. I will let you know that I will pray for you, because I feel that you are borderline demented, and Satan seems to have some sort of grasp on you to mislead people. My biggest prayer is that people don't get sucked into the garbage you are trying to preach to be Christianity. Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the truth shall set you free. Repent now before God strikes you down and it is too late.
This whole site disgusts me and tarnishes all that Christianity stands for.
May God Have mercy on YOu for the lies you are trying to spread.

you people need to get a life and stop harassing minorities on your shitty-ass website because you are bored with your own pathetic and worthless lives. do you really believe noah's sons rode flying-fucking-dinosaurs? you people are messed. i actually was mad when i first saw your site but now i only feel sorry for you. i mean you post things and weird opinions and say you preach the word of jesus, but yet you aren't even a real church. i think you people were seriously abused as children so that you need to take out your messed up feelings for screwing horses, capturing wiccans, and thinking that jesus is actually telling you to do these things on others. didn't jesus also say, "judge not and you will not be judged" and "let they who is without sin cast the first stone." And by looking at your faces in the pics posted, you had a whole lifetime of sin that wore down your feautures so that now you all look like something that has been hiding under a rock all your life. hmm....i wonder what you thought of the davinci code? no seriously im interested. please post your opinions on it. i think it might be worth at least a laugh. blessed be you poor lost souls. may the lord and lady be with you.
Dear Oh Disillusioned one,
I stumbled upon your site today after receiving a link from a friend entitled
'Look at This If you thought the Taliban were bad'. I thought, 'What could be
worse than the Taliban?' and then I found out. Your followers are nothing more
than redneck, fascist, hard line religious NUTS who thrive from intolerance
and looking down their nose at others.
How dare you claim that you are the all knowing, and the only way to receive
eternal life. Myself, I don't believe in eternal life, but for those who do
and believe that it can be achieved through more tolerant means. Your problem
is that you see everything literally, you have taken small parts of the story
book (for that is all it is) that what written about Jesus and decided that
they are the only true words and everything else can just literally go to
hell. Oh how I would love to be standing over your deathbed to see the look on
your face as you die a painful death, safe in the knowledge that you will be
transported to some mystical kingdom with your creator. How will you feel in
the split second before you actually die when you realise that you have wasted
your life? How will you feel when you discover that to love and respect is a
much more fulfilling way to live out your life?
Why is it that you feel that anyone who doesn't prescribe to your mania must
be purged from the earth. I suppose you will say 'because the bible says so'.
What if the bible IS only a series of stories? lets just imagine a
hypothetical situation for a second here. What would happen if some huge
natural disaster wiped out a large portion of the population of the earth, and
along with it, destroyed every single copy of the bible. How would
the bibles teachings be passed on? it would be like a game of chinese
whispers. What is to say that the original version of the bible is not
completely different to what is read now, and bigots and fascists like
yourselves did not alter parts of it to suit themselves?
I believe that you are not good people. I believe that you are no better than
Islamic fundamentalists and your presence on this earth amongst sensible and
rational human beings is not wanted. I know there is very little point writing
this email because all you will do is cast a stream of aspersions about me and
my character. Well let me tell you a few things about me. I am not a
homosexual, although I see them as people. I am not a dangerous person,
in fact I make a valuable contribution to my society. I love and respect
life, and fear is not a word in my vocabulary. It is a negative emotion.
I know you and I will never understand eachother, the difference is that I
dont have to wait until my life is over to start loving myself and those
around me. Why wait a lifetime before learning how to respect?
You are an evil person and you are leading your followers down the path of
PS if you do indeed feel the need to reply please dont waste your time quoting
the bible. If you do I will reply with quotes from Harry Potter. They are both
story books so have little relevance to anything.
ALL I CAN SAY IS, YOU ARE AS MENTAL AS ANYTHING. I AM SURE GOD SITS ON HIS THRONE AND LAUGHS AT YOU AND YOUR ORGANISTATION. I HOPE AND PRAY EVERYONE ELSE DOES THE SAME. HOW CAN ANYONE TAKE THE LIKES OF YOU SERIOUSLY. YOU ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY.
INSANE ARTICLES, AND INSANE TALK. MENTAL MENTAL MENTAL. YOUR TYPE HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE ADAM FELL. THEY ARE IN CHURCHES AND IN ALL OTHER WALKES OF LIFE. YOUR STYLE OF THINKING IS NOTHING NEW.
I KNOW THE LORD JESUS, AND YOU DO NOT EXPRESS HIS HEART IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. YOU ARE NOT ONE OF HIS. YOU HAVE CREATED A JESUS TO SUIT YOUR OWN OBSCENE SELF.
YOU USE THE BIBLE IN A MOST DISPICABLE MANNER AND GOD WILL JUDGE YOU FOR IT. I ASSURE YOU GOD WILL JUDGE YOU FOR ALL YOU ARE DOING TO PEOPLE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH.
HE WILL CLOSE YOU DOWN IN DISGRACE. YOU ARE A STENCH THAT GOES UP TO THE THRONE OF GOD. YOU WILL REMEMBER THESE WORDS WHEN YOUR DAY OF DESTRUCTION HAPPENS. GOD IS NOT MOCKED BUT YOU WILL BE MOCKED AND THROWN OUT. YOU WILL BE CAUGHT IN YOUR OWN WEB.
Hi guys, found your web site and I was seriously offended and yet mildy
amused, you should really update your info. In case you have not
realised it, the USA does NOT hold 96% of the worlds
and China are definately NOT tiny countries, and as for your comments re
Mother Terresa, HOW DARE YOU!
That you purport yourself to be a "Christian" group and yet feel able to
make so rash and insulting a comment is beyond acceptance.
UNLESS YOU ARE JESUS CHRIST and or GOD Himself YOU WOULD NOT KNOW WHO IS
IN HELL OR WHO IS IN HEAVEN. THIS IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW!
As a NON American I found your info outrageous, absurd and insulting. As
a born again Christian I was dissapointed that your web site should be
so out of touch and full of false facts which reflect very poorly on
your theological position.and tend to make me question your spirituality.
I pray that God will correct you and guide you into more appropriate
usage of this information medium
thank you for opening our eyes to the wonder of the only true god,that who made the
sons of noah ride flying
dinosaurs.thank you for teaching us such wisdom and the truth.thank you on opening our eyes to the bible and the whole bible.for not being a hipocrite.for coming out for the bible.for showing us the true colours of the words of jesus.we hope that you did celebrate the death of that mary worshipping,child molester,hipocrite from rome.the more we visit your site,the more we see the truth.as,we are ex allah worshipper,it is through your teaching and others that we realise not only the faith of jesus but the notion of a god itself.we are fundamentalist atheist,born again realist.your church is with the catholic slavedrivers,the best reply for the notion of any god.your bible,written by some italians is no better than the quran written by some arab pirate.with your crazy faith and that of the arabs,million have suffered.there is no difference:jesus or allah or for that matter g-d.where ever you and the bloody religion of arabia went,you destroyed,raped,killed.with your jesus and their allah,most of humanity is dead and dying.how many innocent did yours and that of the child molester of arabia killed.new jerusalem will come when we get rid of you and your kind.those who sell outdated,bloody ideology;when we will not need neither jesus nor that bloody allah.WAKE UP AND LIVE

Are you freaking kidding me? You people are obviously severely misinformed. I happen to be gay and it doesn't make me a bad person. God's judgement of a person is based on how they live their life and not who they love. Ignorance is the gravest sin in life so stick a fork in it and read the Bible without taking everything those Bible hippies say seriously. Anyone can write anything and taking something like that seriously is wrong and ignorant. I hope that you pray for forgiveness and know that while you are rotting in hell, I will be praying for you from heaven.
One small flaw in your article- New evidence from an archeological find
in China supports the long held Christian belief that Noah's sons rode
giant flying dinosaurs to transport duck billed platypuses from
Australia, and penguins and polar bears from the Antarctic, to name a few.
polar bears from the Antarctic - polar bears are only found in the Arctic.

Before I begin, please note that I am a God-fearing
Christian of many years. I was born in 1976, and I
confessed my faith and was added to the Church through
baptism (as He commanded) on March 20, 1988. That
having been said...
The article you have posted at http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0605/flyingdinos.html
makes faithful Christians look a bit silly. Here's
why: the picture at the top of the article shows a
tiny man riding a four winged dinosaur. The article
then leads the reader to believe that the man is one
of Noah's sons. The problem is that the dinosaur
pictured is an artist's rendition of a newly
discovered species of dinosaur, Microraptor gui, which
was only about 1 meter (3 feet) long. Assuming Noah's
sons were larger than newborn infants, riding a 3-foot
flying animal would have been quite impossible.
Please read the National Geographic report on the
discovery for details: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/01/0121_030122_dromaeosaur.html
The last paragraph of your article even goes on to say
that "Through tithing donations from Landover Baptist
Church members, the Center for Creation Research was
able to secure several fossilized remains of flying
dinosaurs valued at over $14 million. The remains will
be studied exhaustively for evidence of the leather
harnessing used to secure Noah's sons for their long
transcontinental journeys." Any evidence of grown men
riding a flying animal that was about half their size
is sure to be quite interesting.
I am not writing this out of malice, nor out of any
desire to disprove His existence. I simply think that
the best way to help nonbelievers see the error of
their ways is for God's people to present themselves
as more moral, upright, outstanding, and generally
sensible than any other group of people. I am afraid
that jumping the gun and posting something like this
without doing even the most basic research first makes
us look somewhat less than sensible. It makes us look
more like we are grasping at straws to try to prove
something that has already been proven false, rather
than the opposite.
Your Brother in Christ,

Noah and company rode on flying dinosaurs? But I though dinosaurs were
just part of a conspiracy to prove the Bible wrong. You guys really
are insane...I mean really!
Hi my name is John and I am a youth pastor in mississippi. This is the worst thing I think I have ever laid my eyes on. I can't believe you would make a website with this on here. This is horrible and NOT CHRISTIAN by any means. You should be ashamed of this.... Very Ashamed.. One of my kids found this site and brought it to me... I was shocked.. If you think this is "cool" you need to dig deep in your soul and check if you really did accept Jesus as your savior.
I recently came across your article \"Is My Little Boy Going To Be
Gay\". I must say, you are quite possibly the most uneducated, clueless human being on earth! You have GOT to be kidding! Don\'t let boys sit on the potty???? Shave their heads and humiliate them if they play with a doll? Don\'t watch cartoons. Eat everything on their plate? I am a pround and strong supporter of homosexual rights as well as children\'s rights, and I think you go way beyond the scope of the topi. You are down right abusive! You are teaching you\'re congregation to abuse their children, and fear the people they love the most. I will be reporting you to several news agencies and also to have the authorities watch your congregation carefully so that none of the children are abused!
It\'s a sad day in America when people like you are allowed to lead discussions! I feel sorry for you. You are exactly the type of person the Bible tells us not to be!
I wanted to comment to your regarding your site, but realistically, I
have to expect that is exactly what insects like you would want. I'll
save my comments for issues and people who actually matter in the grand
scheme of things. Quite frankly, the fact that I've wasted the last 30
seconds on your pathetic site is a shame. My bad...

Obviously, this piece of secular trash is not for saved Christians; it is not for saved children; and it is not for anyone who entertains any idea of ever being invited to Heaven. The
Lord's name is taken in vain exactly 3,492 times
You actually bothered to count! You losers! Thanks for making me laugh until I cried!
I have looked through your site and I'm displeased with what I see, are you nuts? do you really think that the devil is
santa? next thing your going to say is that the devil is cupid or the easter bunny! I think that you should really think through what your saying, I think you should revise your site, and no i'm not saying I don't believe in god or the devil, for your information I believe in both! but I just don't understand how you can turn a perfectly harmless icon like santa claus and turn him into something bad, have you nothing better to do with your time?
a shocked person
P.S. I hope you would take the time to write back to me, thank you
How sad you all are. I would hate to be you'll when you all burn in hell...Truth hurts.

You are a righteous hypocrite. So you plan to act discourteously towards young girls, to give them a taste of their own "lewd," discourteous behavior? And is it really just the
Catholic girls that are such
trollops? I didn't know that only Catholics were susceptible to lust, and that you Baptists are immune from it. Perhaps you should tend to your own garden before you sneer at others. Whatever happened to "Judge not, lest ye be judged?"
Equally offensive was the way you chose to smear Mexicans in the same article, "quicker than a Mexican can down 10 shots of tequila." You are the present-day version of a Pharisee, my friend.
You people are sick, hypocritical pseudo-Christian exclusionary assholes that don't give a shit about saving anyone, just sucking each other's pretentious dicks and measuring them against each other to see how pious each other can pretend to be.
Why don't you all go fuck each other in the asses, and then go fuck yourselves.
YOU ARE A FUCKING NUTCASE! I red an article on your website about
pokemon being evil? IT'S A FUCKING KID SHOW! It's not a message from
satan you dickhead, it's a fantasy show that allows kids to have fun.
Also, burning their belongings 'in the name of god' is theft and
personal belonging harrassment, against the law. You are a true moron
indeed, as it was created as an entertainment show in Japan for
children, and it was so popular, they brought it to the united states.
If it was the work of satan, it would have said "Written and Directed
by Satan himself"! What kind of idiots do you take people for,
fuckass! Respond to this or I'll tell everybody I know about how
stupid your site is!
Wow, congradulations for perverting the Holy Bible and
twisting it's scripture to make you look like you're
good and holy. Keep scripture in context, please, it
has a lot more meaning that way, and can be used how
it was intended. Correct your mistakes or the wrath
of God Himself will fall upon you. Edit this and post
it for all to see, go right ahead, the Lord my God
knows the truth and sees such wickedness, and it will
be punished. Guess what? No christian is perfect, so
this statement right here "As most churches liberalize
themselves and reject the commandments written by God
in the Holy Bible, the Landover Baptist Church
continues to do exactly what scripture teaches every
Christian to do. And that is to keep the temple of the
living God a clean vessel, untarnished by even a hint
of fellowship with the unrighteous." proves that
because you have even a single member of your
congregation, that you are doing exactly the opposite
of that you're saying you do. A church is a hospital
for sinners, not a blameless organization of prideful
hypocrites. "For all have sinned and fallen short of
the glory of God" hey guess what, you're a sinner too!
And so are all the other people who claim to be pure
and holy. The Lord sees the wickedness that is going
on here, and it will be punished. I don't believe
what you believe so I'm going to burn in hell for
eternity? Even though I'm correct and you're blatantly
wrong? We'll let God decide. I'm not leading people
astray. Just because a pastor says something is a sin
doesn't mean it's a sin. Pastors are human too, and
obviously some of them are corrupted by power, greed,
and a lust for authority. Turn from your evil ways
while you still can.
