Self-Congratulatory Tweets

A certain subset of fundamentalist preachers have discovered twitter and proceeded to use it as a platform for mutual self-congratulatory behavior. It usually looks something like this…

And so on and so forth. It’s really cute to watch them flirt.

    1. So, you’re using a device marketed as an “e-reader”, (meant for reading) to leave some internet comments regarding the [i]Brave New World[/i]-like Twitter.

      Interesting.

      (I’m aware that the Internet is accessible from a Nook.)

      1. I was just about to SCREAM, “YOU MADE THESE UP!” Thank you. I know, I know, I KNOW they can be truly nauseating in their conceit, but when I got to the one about waving the hankie, I thought, No. Darrell did this. 😯

  1. aparrently I wasn’t second after all…

    One tweet sez “WHEEEEE! I feel like a fat kid in a room full of ice-cream sundays.” I bet thats a fundie attempt at subtle humor. I’ll also bet that the tweeter also looks and acts that way.

  2. I was completely fooled until the grits and cornbread comment, when I thought, “Nah, no one talks that way.” Right? I hope? I mean, I’ve been in some Riotous Revival churches and I’ve seen the hanky waving and on occasion people standing up and pointing and shouting at (or maybe towards) the preacher, but I’ve never heard “grits and cornbread.”

      1. I had a hard time paying attention to the song because I was distracted by that object stuck to the back-up singer’s head. What is that? It’s too large to be a barrette and too small to be a hat. It looks sort of like a red fish resting on top of her head. But why?

  3. 1611 or Die? It’s sad that there really are people who would die for the version of Bible they carry, but are ignorant of the teachings of the red letters contained in that book.

  4. I have to admit, I was about to go follow these dudes on twitter! However, my heart was disappointed to find out that these fundy friends were just imaginary figures of fundyland!

    1. Oh, but some of the real ones are just as amusing. Arrogantly building up their best preacher buddy friends while spewing hate and vitriol at others. Bashing deep theological issues in 140 characters seems to be the new fundy way. The one Darrell re-tweeted yesterday was great. The person is praying for The Sword of the Lord to become available on Kindle and no, it’s not made up.

  5. Ugh. reminds me of your recent tweet. What kind of arrogant jerk takes a PHOTO of a family “at altar” and then twitpics it for the whole world to see?

  6. I should not be the one to pick on spelling or punctuation, but there is something amiss in the the last sentence. It says “watch then flirt”. Who am I to flirt with after watching? πŸ˜‰

  7. I have to say, this reminds me of how conversation always went during the “post-soulwinning” taco bell dinners. And we were in elementary school. They teach ’em young…

        1. I’d never heard of him. He seems to be close with a church that I didn’t think was that steeped in the “notwork”. Guess I was wrong.

    1. “My 9 yr old son is fasting!! LOVE IT!! He said he wants revival and to see God work in his lifetime! Come on!!”

      OK, that’s going to make my brain hurt for the rest of the day. I may have to go watch “Jersey Shore” to kill off the brain cells storing my memory of that tweet. πŸ™

      1. Yeah, I read that one too. I doubt any doctor in the nation would encourage a child to skip a meal… Poor little guy probably knows daddy’s love it merit-based and is trying to earn his love. But that’s just an educated guess. 😐

    1. PS you could’ve hung out in my dorm room 2 nights a week my freshman year when my roommate & suite mate would practice their preacherboys sermons for the next day. Tons & tons of self congratulations & in kind congratulations going on then! πŸ™‚

  8. So who’s gunna own up to the new twitter name @KJV1611orDIE ???? Newly created the day this post was written – coincidence??? I think not πŸ™‚

    ….wasn’t me, wish it was πŸ˜†
