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.
Is that Schaap in a mohawk to left of the light saber?
Probably. He does look like he’s posing lecherously with those poor kids.
I think the guy you are looking at is this bozo: http://www.stufffundieslike.com/2014/03/blackface-boxing-matches/
Yes, you called it, Rob.
I don’t think Shelton has the power of the Emperor, but he would like to think he does possibly.
My church bus can make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs….ROFL.
I spit my coffee out. lol
I wonder if the Greg R2D2 can project a hologram of women changing in his office? Wow, the jokes are endless with this one.
That was my contribution to this poster, as he was my former pastor.
I find their overabundance of faith in the MoG disturbing.
May the Farce be with you
I had a look at the original tweet, and it looks like it was done for laughs.
Ok, the whole twitter account is a parody (now that I’ve gone and spent time reading it). It’s pretty hilarious.
So Darrell didn’t make this poster?
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?
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 :^)
What’s really sad is some IFB pastor will see this poster and think it’s a REALLY GOOD idea and use it.
Just….check out the twitter account of the guy who made it. Definitely not a fundy…..
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.
You mispelled Tauntaun.
rare moment of the dark side….it shant happen again.
A desecration to “the Force”.
I thought they smelled bad on the outside
At first, Darrell, I thought you made that up, but that’s actually real.
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.
Absolutely. The world, particularly the Fundigelical world, needs more snarky reprobates.
Jar-Jar’s too refined for these jokers. 🙄
The best take on Jar-Jar ever (you have to read both installments):
“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.
following the link to @breakingbaptist the Sith Lord imagery is understandable at a parody sight.
“These are not the paths you are looking for…”
I am stumbling for words, I’m sorry, I am so stunned I can’t even think of a good response at this moment.
I’m out of it for a little while and everyone gets delusions of grandeur.
Not since Ghost has a movie poster so perfectly captured the horror genre…
I was hoping someone would get that 🙂
Gawd, that movie was awful.
The buses add a little “Space Balls” feel to the whole thing. Nicely done!
Yes, that was my favorite part, as well.
You have to make sure that you never push the bus shift lever to ludicrous speed
The dark side is strong in them.
Yes it is!
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?
for the record, Han shot first…lets not get carried away in some revisionist perversion of the original manuscripts
And all god’s people said…
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).
“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.
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
This gives Vader’s line, “I find your lack of faith disturbing,” a whole new meaning.
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.
Completely terrifying, not the sort of thing to soothe oneself with on a Monday morning
Is that Allen Domelle toting the Uzi?
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?
“Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.”
This is a big pile of bantha fodder!
My only response is:
Talk about your hokey religions…
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
Back to the old paths when they didn’t get caught
I have a bad feeling about this…
