Today’s challenge is to complete the following sentence “Your Mama/Daddy is soooooo fundamentalist that he/she…”
“Your Mama is soooo fundamentalist that she has a reserved parking spot down at the altar.”
“Your Daddy is soooo fundamentalist that his blood type is Kool-Aid.”
You get the idea.
“It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
One has to look no further than this this article by
Allen Domelle Bruce Goddard, to find the common fundy fallacy of bifurcation otherwise known as the “all or nothing” fallacy.
Starting with a tautology for a title (“If You Have No Line, Then You Have No Line”) he attempts to demonstrate that “mockers who act as if you are so stupid for fussing over little things” must obviously have no standards or morals whatsoever or else they wouldn’t question yours.
Would you let somebody into your church naked? Then you must keep my dress standards! Would you (God forbid) let Justin Bieber sing in your church? then you must keep my music standards!
There is no middle ground in fundy world. It’s a bizarre place to live.
Update 1: Corrected author of the article to Bruce Goddard. Allen Domelle is the owner of the website.
It looks like somebody (hopefully somebody with legal permission) has released the entire video of Steve Anderson’s New World Order Bible Versions on YouTube.
I just did a quick click-through of the video and most of it is apparently just Anderson yelling at his church in his usual obnoxious style with a few cuts to discussions with various “experts.” Even other KJVO people should have reason to find this production pretty cringe-worthy.
I love that if you go out to FramingTheWorld.com where the video is for sale that the other titles on offer include conspiracies on flouride and contrails. Anderson finds himself in good company.
