Below is the official teaser for "The Sons of God." Demons, giant human fossils, and intelligent beings from outer space - all found in the Bible? This is science at its most, er, magical. *Snort* Pastor Jim Staley declares: "Who are the Sons of God? Archaeology has discovered a 47-inch femur bone in the Euphrates River Valley." (What "archaeology" can Pastor Staley be referring to? The Scripture twister later states:) "The plan of Satan is to genetically modify the DNA of Man so that the line of the Messiah would be polluted." (Pollution of the race? Careful, preacher.) Feminist blogger C.G. Powell wittily observes: Let us step back for a moment and see how this all might have played out. A son of God walks into a bar, the cave sluts are all drinking whatever fermented in their goat stomach bags since yesterday, when one of them pipes in, "Hey, nice wings you got there." And nine months later, she’s trying to push out a giant baby.
Next is a trailer for the documentary "Fight Church," an odd convergence of evangelical Christianity and mixed martial arts. Favorite lines: "My hope is that through the fight I can create a relationship with the person I'm fighting and extend Christ to him." "Can you love your neighbor as yourself and at the same time then knee him in the face as hard as you can?" A little boy being indoctrinated by the church chirps: "I'm gonna go in there and rip this kid's head off." ("Jesus help me to yank my classmate's intestines out through his ass and stomp them into the dust. Christ is merciful.") "Jesus was a fighter. That's the type of Jesus that I would want to serve." (You ever notice how fundie Christians turn Jesus into the sort of person they already are? As Church Lady would say: "Well, isn't that speee-cial?")
"If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion." - Edmond De Goncourt
"Almost any religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so." - Robert Heinlein
"Imagine the people who believe such things and who are not ashamed to ignore, totally, all the patient findings of thinking minds through all the centuries since the Bible was written. And it is these ignorant people, the most uneducated, the most unimaginative, the most unthinking among us, who would make themselves the guides and leaders of us all; who would invade our schools and libraries and homes." - Isaac Asimov
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful." - Seneca
