It seems almost fitting for yall to support Bush as well, as he is an ignorant and narrow minded idiot. You have every right to vote for him, i do concede. I personally would rather have a monkey in the white house than that excuse for a president.
Anyway, now that I have gotten way off track, i would actually like to thank you for the future hours of entertainment and discussion among my peer of your outrageous community. With out people like yourselves, there would be a lot less laughter, and a lot less eyes opening to the ultra-conservitive wing of the united states that scares the shit out of me.
Please feel free to respond to my email, and I even encourage you to share it with your community.
Hi my name is Brian Covert and I am a Reformed Baptist in Mesa Arizona. I was just reading your churches article on science. I would like to say that you could not be more wrong. Science was originated by Christian men who wanted to further explore their God and Creator. These men wanted to know more about their Father and the science of the things that He created. I agree God has a plan and that everything works according to His good pleasure, but to say that it just happens like magic is absurd. To say that our vehicles work by magic because Jesus wants it to is plain ignorance. We are image bearers of God which means that we also display many of Godís attributes in one way or another. One of those attributes is creativity. God created the heavens and the earth and everything in it and He also created man with ability to be creative and to create things. Man has invented and created many things and those things have a science to them. These things donít just work by magic there is a logical and mechanical explanation behind those things I would like to suggest a few books for you to read written by CHRISTIANS. First book is Christian Men of Science: Eleven Men Who Changed the World by Julia Mulfinger Orozco and the second one is Loving God With All Your Mind: Thinking as a Christian in the Postmodern World -- by Gene Edward, Jr. Veith. Please read these books.
I am Roman Catholic. My wife came across your troubling website recently and forwarded it to me. My best friend is Southern Baptist and was also shocked to read some of the amazingly ridiculous statements you make. The Jesus thong for sale is also a bit troubling... but I digress.
I would like to clarify some things to you about us "unsaved, hellbound, Catholics." I am no seasoned apologist, although I know many who are, but after reading several of your bigoted anti-Catholic sermons I am confident I can explain some things to you about our Lord's Holy Roman Catholic Church.
You pick the first topic and we can get started. Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Mary, the Eucharist, etc. Anything is fine with me... you pick.
Finally, your condoning of violence is sad. In your "Spooky Holy Ghost is Scaring the Devil Out of Children this Halloween" article I was saddened to read that you promote fist fights among your youth. Perhaps you should spend more time in God's HOLY word. Our Lord was speaking to all of us when He said, "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another" (John 13:34).
In His Service,
Let me see, did Jesus serve those in good shape spiritually? Did Paul reach out to only those who believed? Peter? Shall I say any more? It seems to me this web-site is built only to flatter yourselves. Only you, the "Saved", deserve the right to have this kind of site, which is bi-furcating the saved from the non-saved, or "hell-bound". The word "hell-bound" is a way to hide in plain view that your not particularly interested in reaching those you have pre-judged in your own heart. No wonder the modern "religious" church is garbage. They're not teaching about God, just simply there own ideas. I am a member of a baptist church, but I tell people I'm a christian, not a baptist. Organized religion is man made. Spirituality isn't. My advice: Be a little less sarcastic to the web visitor. Don't let them know your existance is soley for the saved. If your existance is soley for the saved, as your site implies, it is futile and pitiful. Please try to have a less antagonistic view of the unsaved. They are the harvest. We are the workers.
May God Bless You.

Hmmm. Well either its a joke, or you really are desperate to dig up any old trash.
Should be ashamed of yourselves, grown ups acting like that!
All the best, from some one who has actually been through the Temple.
Hello, my name is Emily Mussy, and I read your article on how terrible Disney is. Let me congradulate you and reassure you that you have many people out there who agree with you. Disney is a terrible and wretched company for allowing such perverse toys to be anywhere in the vacinity of children. It apalls me. I would like to take this time to tell you about the group I belong to at my highschool called "RR", or "Republicans Rock". It was started about 15 years ago, and everyone in my family has been a part of it. I'll bet those lousy liberals have been creating scandalous toys to turn our children into sex fiends and currupt them, and we need to put a stop to this. The club and I are considering boycotting Disney movies and products. If you have any suggestions, please respond.
After reading the article on Landover Baptist Church Website that a friend had shown me, i was reminded once more why it is that i do not go to church or pray to "God" or any other god, although i'm sure you'd find any other but yours to be fake due to the lack of acceptance in your heart.
It is in fact people like you and those of the Landover Baptist Chruch that sadden me and it is my belief that a great deal of the world's troubles and unwelcomed violence is stemmed from those like yourselves. As you clearly encourage your children to carry out violent acts.
Your kind preach peacefulness and the ways of the righteous man yet you take up arm against those who do not share the same belief as yours. If you and your god is so grand and your beliefs are so superior to any others, why force the rest of the world into it? There simply would be no point because if it were truely that grand and wonderous, than no one would have to be told so. Not to mention you completely contridict yourself and your beliefs when you force others into your following.
This is exactly the reason i do not believe in the church or a god. Because of the example your kind has set upon me and many others across the world since i can remember, an example that encourages violence, judgment, discremenation, and so many more negative things i care not for in this world.
It disgust me that anyone would encourage such actions and show such hate, and i simply do not agree, nor do i think i ever will.
A concerned Christian
Like you sir, i am also a soldier of Christ from True Vine Baptist Church in the Philippines. i am one of youth leaders in our church and one of the most common thing that influenced many young people is the music. May i request Sir to please send me some examples of Backmasked songs. Some famous songs that commonly played by youth.. i need the lyrics, both forward and reverse, to positively influenced our youth.. i hope for your kind giving.

May God Bless YOU,
My name is Sasha Raven Warner. Recently it has come to my light that I am surrounded on all sides by people who speak of always trying to spread christs love. I wish to ask you, if you love everybody around you why speak hate and anger on your web page? On your site which I found at http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news1100/witch.html I was appalled to read an article on the movie Blair Witch 2 written by a Mr Harry Hardwick. He mentions first off that co - chairs a committee called SCAM or Society To Cure Ailing Morality, and states that he had "recently attended a festival in Hollywood that offered sneak previews of upcoming holiday films" Mr Hardwick goes on to state that "The purpose of the trip was to make a list of the Satanic movies that all Landover members must avoid." After making that statement he adds "Given the racy content of many of these films, I ordered my lovely wife, Heather, to stay home with the children." My first question is, if the films are so disturbing why is Mr Hardwick putting himself in harms way in the first place? My second question has to do with the statement made about "ordering" his wife to stay home. Is this an accurate description of what happened? Did Mr Hardwick ask or suggest that Mrs Hardwick stay home? If Mr Hardwick did indeed "order" Mrs Hardwick to stay home, could you please explain what right Mr Hardwick had in "ordering" another human being to do anything simply because he has hair in different places and weighs more?
My next question comes from a statement made by Mr Hardwick in the third paragraph of his review. he mentions a lady by the name of Dora Jean Hazlett who had reviewed the original Blair Witch Project. He states that Ms Hazlett found the movie "disgusting" and the goes on to boldly state "But you must remember that Dora is only a gal and therefore wasn't capable of seeing the symbolism behind the on-screen debauchery." Firstly, what does Ms Hazlett's sex have to do with her opinion on a given subject? Secondly, what does Ms Hazlett's sex have to do her seeing "symbolism" in a movie that was only designed to make money and scare people? Thirdly, what right does Mr Hardwick have to publicly demean Ms Hazlett simply because she is a different sex and has a different opinion than he does?
The next question I have concerns Mr Hardwick's statement "Satan is represented in this film by an old, decrepit female the movie refers to as a witch. However, the "politically correct" term by which these hideous, wart-covered, frightening beings prefer to be referred today is "wiccan." " It is a well known fact that the term wiccan is not just a noun by which to describe a person the christian denominations refer to as a "witch" but is in fact the proper name of an age old religion that is recognized as a true and valid faith. My question is this, what right did Mr Hardwick have to brazenly demean a religion that is indeed older than the modern christian faith? Where in the bible does it state that it is acceptable to publicly attack your fellow human beings simply because they believe in a different spiritual path than you? I would also like to draw your attention to Mr Hardwick's improper use of the term "warlock" which he describes as a witch's "male counterpart" This is an untrue statement. In the wiccan culture warlock is a term used to describe a liar.
Also in the same paragraph Mr Hardwick states that wiccans and "warlocks" "are best known for practicing human sacrifices and consuming human blood for their sustenance." I am not entirely sure but perhaps Mr Hardwick has gotten wiccans confused with cannibals and vampires? It is well known that the wiccan tradition is one of peace and harmony with nature. I simply wonder what magical permission slip has allowed Mr Hardwick to again lash out with hateful and untrue accusations and information simply because the information comes from a source he does not believe in himself. Later on in paragraph four Mr Hardwick states "After all, witches are females and, like the first of them, females are subtle and deceitful" First I must point out that not all wiccans are female just the same as not all christians are male. Second I must again admit confusion as to why Mr Hardwick lashes out at females.
In conclusion I thank you for your time and ask only for a speedy response to the questions outlined in this communication.

Your site disgusts me. Do some research. Talk to some gay people. Find out what you're talking about before you talk about it.
To any religious people that are concerned: the opinions of this site, and not the people that they discriminate against, are the work of the devil.
I do not follow any religion and I am much more of a loving, caring person than whoever truly believes in your church. I like everyone with good morals whether they're homosexual, black, white, male, female, religious, or non-religious. I just don't see how you can hate someone because of their preference. Ever hear of the saying "Agree to disagree"?
And on your "Staff" link, those are clearly KKK hoods you sick freaks. Fire protection my ass.
The God I believe in love the good. The Bible was written by drunken fools 200 years ago.
Have a good time in hell.
YOU ARE ALL FUCKING HOMOPHOBIC SINNERS.
I won't do what most people are likely doing and bring up certain hypocrisies that you exhibit. I'm going to deconstruct your beliefs on certain issues. First and foremost, "infidel" religions. For instance, Wicca. Your beliefs on Wicca are completely upside down. I, for instance, know first hand how unlike your recollections Wiccans actually are. I am dating one. And she is so far from being what you describe that the laughability it could have is lost with me. She does not kidnap Christian babies and drink their blood. She might drink a lot of wine or beer on occasion, and has never detained someone in her home against their will. She does not barge into churches and hurl dead animals at people. She does not care for the Christian religion, but it's not necessarily Christians as a people she doesn't like, but rather assimilation and propaganda. But this distaste would never push her to disrespect and defile the beliefs of others. All in all, she is among the kindest and most sensitive beings I know. You'd hate her, she's your polar opposite.
Ah, what the hell...I will bring up a hypocrisy. First, you claim homosexuality is an abomination. Next you claim that masturbation is a sin. Next you claim that masturbation is fine for widowers over the age of sixty-five. Next, you figure that Christian men can do it, but they cannot reach the point of ejaculation, and they can only think about Jesus. I can't be the only one who was laughing at that one. Because i'm very sure that whenever Jesus took off his robes, he looked down and saw a penis, just like men are supposed to when they look down. Now I don't care if he is the son of your god, I'm more than certain that he'd be quite offended if he knew that he had become jerking material for Christian extremists. You guys have said it yourselves. Aside from your ridiculous ban on oral sex, you can be as freaky as you want when you're married. So instead of masturbating while thinking of a violent effigy of your savior's death or something to that effect, why not just get married to a beautiful young girl and have sex with her every night and make lots of children so you can perpetualize your vicious cycle of spousal and child abuse, lying without fear of repercussions, and depriving them of a healthy childhood so they can grow up just as repulsively conservative, ignorant and blind as you.
There was much more I found extremely ridiculous. First of all, not everyone in the world is out to corrupt the impressionable youth of the country by subliminally slipping penislike shapes into the media. SpongeBob may look like a penis and balls if you flip him over, but so what? In some small way, so do the Simpson characters. So do countless other cartoon characters. Where are their names in your brimstone sermons? They are absent...Because with you, it's all about popularization. It's about connection with current events. You try to stay current with the news and politics, and recent trends, so your sheople can identify with it and get sucked into your maelstrom of mindlessness. For instance: Aquapets? Give me a fuck'n break. They are pieces of plastic manufactured in Japan. Some little part of your brain MUST have made the connection by now that Japanese people did not intend for Aquapets to be used as masturbation toys. "Landover Baptist Church declares war on Aquapets!" I'm still recovering from the ruptured spleen I acquired while laughing at that. Hell, bananas could be used as masturbation toys. Why don't you declare a holy war on bananas? Yes, you go and fight some pointless crusade on a fruit (you do hate fruits, correct? Wow, now I see how you make these radical perceptions---very clever of you) while the rest of us live our lives the way we see fit. Always remember this. I do not believe in your god. Because people exactly like you have turned me away from him. But remember that he gave us free will, and I doubt someone would give a gift and intend for us to never use it. Open your eyes, open your minds, close your bibles. I concluded with these words last time, and I will do so again: Get lives.

It must be nice in there. He always seems so compassionate and loving. I need Jesus so bad that it hurts sometimes.
It's too bad I can't find him, though. It seems that I'm unwelcome at your church, and that He wouldn't want me unless I'm saved. How am I supposed to be able to come and learn? I can't come unless I'm saved, I can't be saved unless I come and learn.
I wish I knew the answer to these questions. Would you help me?
I can't tell if you guys are just misguided and in need of psychological help, if you are money grubbing phonies, or just idiots. Either way, you are the reason people don't get saved. You give people amunition to call Christians crazy stupid hypocrites. A playstation to accept Jesus? Come on! Anybody could claim to be saved just to get the playstation! Acceptance of Jesus has to be genuine from the heart! And a WWJD thong??? You people are out of your miinds!!! You're asking for people like Leno to ridicule you. Wise up!!!
"Unsaved" NOT welcomed?
Oh, how you grieve the Holy Spirit on a DAILY basis with this nonsense!! Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has instructed us to GO into all the world and tell of his Grace TO the Unsaved!! They are the MOST welcomed in his house not the LEAST as you seem to think!!!
Unfortunately, it appears Satan himself has gained a strong foothold within your Church (?) and is gleefully romping through it's tentacles on a daily basis!! You should drop the word "Baptist" from your name and come up with some other type of "Cult" related name to more accurately identify yourself and your people!!
We will be praying for you that you will get your hearts right with the Lord and return to his Biblical teachings ASAP!!
