So unless you’ve been living under a rock or are a Fundy U student (but I repeat myself), you’ve heard of the ALS ice bucket challenge. As one might imagine, anything that is popular and trending across the Internet will be met with resistance and suspicion by fundamentalists who will reject it first and then make up reasons later. Here is a sample of the reactions from across the Internet:
This Fundy suggests a pretty horrifying alternative:
Not to be outdone this Fundy pastor (FB video) decides to threaten anybody who dumps ice water on him with death and recommends giving money to missions instead.
And then this dear person attempts to Jesus Juke the whole thing by continuing the “missions is better than medicine” theme:
For any fundagelicals who are prone to argue that donating to ALS research means embryonic stem cell research, there’s a list here of donations you can make to research that doesn’t include embryonic stem cells rending that particular excuse invalid.
Full Disclosure: I donated to The ALS Association this week. If you chose to douse yourself with ice water, however, feel free to link that video in the comments since I find that sort of thing highly entertaining.
Want to be friends? Only the super-sanctimonious need apply.
For Jesus said unto them “love your neighbor as yourself but don’t let their kids close to your kids unless they attend Wednesday night church.”
This really is sad because once upon a time I thought there might be hope for Tom when he got fed up and started naming names in his sermon entitled “39 Years an Independent Baptist…And Grieved About It.”
If you’re not following SFL on Facebook or Twitter then you’re missing out on all kinds of extra content that I post through the week. Even if I don’t have a new post here there’s almost always something to look at on the social media feeds.
(and if you’re REALLY bored you can also follow my personal Twitter account to hear me chatter on inanely)
