    1. Make that the FIRST (of many) facepalms.

      Why are those two children on that flyer?

      Do these people even think about how these things will be interpreted?

      The problem with being the supreme Fundy Mannogid is no one will ever tell you something is a really stupid idea.

  1. I wonder if the Greg R2D2 can project a hologram of women changing in his office? Wow, the jokes are endless with this one.

  2. I had a look at the original tweet, and it looks like it was done for laughs.

    1. Ok, the whole twitter account is a parody (now that I’ve gone and spent time reading it). It’s pretty hilarious.

  3. Wait- I thought movies were verboten? These guys have had to have been to a theater… although, you’ll notice the presence of Vader and the Emperor- do they really want that association?

    1. It’s not just violating the boundary with movies, but the association with a movie that is filled with all kinds of “New Age” ideas like “the Force”. So much for being separate from the world :^)

    2. What’s really sad is some IFB pastor will see this poster and think it’s a REALLY GOOD idea and use it.

    3. Just….check out the twitter account of the guy who made it. Definitely not a fundy…..

  4. I, for one, am extremely offended at this. I take my Star Wars VERY seriously, and this is just wrong.

    I vote we stuff them ALL into Ton-tons and just leave them there.

      1. lol

        rare moment of the dark side….it shant happen again.

    1. Oh, wait. I just checked out Breaking Baptist’s Twitter page. He’s a snarky, reprobate like the rest of us.

      And I must needs follow him.

      1. Absolutely. The world, particularly the Fundigelical world, needs more snarky reprobates.

  5. “lack of heroes” Yes that is true. But I find it odd that they would actually have people posed as Sith Lords–agents of the Dark Lord. So we cannot have someone representing Leia–because strong female characters are not permitted since women are not permitted to preach. BUT we will have someone in the garb of the Sith Lords. Wow, really shows where women rank in the IFB….don’t let a woman be represented, but the dark side can represent.
    And what is up with the two children by C3-po who look like they are coming out from under the guy’s cloak? Thats just creepy.

  6. I am stumbling for words, I’m sorry, I am so stunned I can’t even think of a good response at this moment.

  7. I’m out of it for a little while and everyone gets delusions of grandeur.

    1. You have to make sure that you never push the bus shift lever to ludicrous speed

  8. Dagnabbit, Han Solo, keep your finger off of the trigger, and outside the trigger guard, until your ready to shoot! You don’t want to shoot Luke’s father, do you?

    1. for the record, Han shot first…lets not get carried away in some revisionist perversion of the original manuscripts

  9. Love the pirated Disney font at the top. (Perhaps a parody of the IBF’s propensity for pirating EVERYTHING? Copyright is the Lord’s, haymen!?!)

    Wonder how long it will take for one of these MOGs to turn the tables by having a poster size print made of this thing and have it hung in his office (after his church pays to frame it for him as a “thank you” gift, of course).

  10. “Return to the Old Paths,” eh?

    As in, be enslaved once again with the yoke of bondage?

    As in, going back to Fundy Egypt?

    As in, giving up the new man in favor of the old man of sin?

    As in, putting ourselves back under the schoolmaster?

    As in, trying to be justified by the law and not by grace?

    As in, NOT “being all things to all men so that by all means I might save some?”

    No, no. We are supposed to be maturing in Christ, not immaturing! We are supposed to grow, not shrink. We are supposed to learn, not forget. We are supposed to find the better way.

    1. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. – Galatians 5:1

  11. This gives Vader’s line, “I find your lack of faith disturbing,” a whole new meaning.

  12. I will watch later, after graduation is over. But it always amuses me that people think the past was so much better.

    Sure, we have challenges of the future with unknowns. But the past is no answer to the problems of the present. Had it been, we wouldn’t be having those problems now, would we? At least not in their present magnitude?

    Cars are not made to run in reverse for long periods of time. They are supposed to go forward. So are we.

  13. Completely terrifying, not the sort of thing to soothe oneself with on a Monday morning

  14. Can someone identify all of these characters?

    In front appears to be John Hamblin. Someone said that Shelton Smith is in the background behind Hamblin.

    Jack Hyles is on the left; beneath him is Billy Sunday (?)

    But I don’t recognize the others

    Someone said that R2D2 is Greg Neal, of video recording infamy. True?

    1. If you will not be turned to my way of doing things then you will be destroyed! Young fool, only now it will end, do you understand? You have paid the price for your lack of vision! Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the M-o-g ! Now young Preacher-boy , you will burnout and be my lackey. -Emperor Pulpitime
