Sarah Silverman is An Imbecile, And This Week’s Winner of the Dilly

It’s been a good while since I’ve seen this sort of dilettantish ignorance on display but here it shines brightly in the stupidity and imbecilidity of one Sarah Silverman, actress:

stupid

Her claim is made without so much as a sliver of evidence.  And yet, the buffoons in Hollywood (aka land of the biblically ignorant and uninformed) fete her and heap approval.

She, and they, are why dilettantes who pretend to be other people for a living and those who film them should never, ever talk about the bible or theology.

Since, though, they do love awards, here’s the most deserved award Silverman will ever receive:

Kevin Swanson: Winner of this Month’s Dilly the Dilettante Award

For this:

An extreme right-wing American pastor has claimed that it would be better for parents to “hang a millstone” around their childrens’ necks and drown them “at the bottom of the sea” than let them read Harry Potter.  Kevin Swanson, speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Des Moines, said the whole of America must repent for reading Harry Potter.

What unhinged nutbaggery.  There’s absolutely nothing of Christianity in this and not a shred of proper biblical exposition or theological sense or justification.  This is just some unlearned hack pretending to be a theologian blathering on.  Consequently, Kev, here’s your Dilly.  Well deserved indeed:

KJV Only People Really Are Profoundly Ignorant. Profoundly.

Via Francesca on the twitter

rubbishIf you think that the KJV is somehow to be preferred to the original languages, you’re just so very wrong and so very profoundly ignorant that it boggles the mind.

Oh No Not Again…. Still Another End Time Date Setter

Why, Lord, why?  It’s another ‘End of the World‘ predictor.  This time it’s Oct 7 2105.  What it is about October that these nutters love so much?  I only know of this because they’re following me on the twitter (till they see this anyway).

Without further ado- end of the worlders- here’s your dilly-

Liars and the Lies they Tell: The Christian Zionist Deception

The Jerusalem Post has an essay which demonstrates the lies which Christian Zionists are willing to believe, and perpetrate:

“Cooperation between the Jewish and Christian worlds is crucial to save Israel from all its threats,” Liberman said. “We are on the front lines of a clash of civilizations. Israel is the only place in the Middle East where Christians are an integral part of society.”

That’s false.  Christians are scattered about the near East and in particular there are MANY in the Palestinian territories.  It’s convenient for Lieberman to act as if they don’t exist, though, because it allows them to be ignored and he take part in their marginalization and elimination.

Kulanu MK Michael Oren, a former ambassador to the US, said that former American presidents John Adams and Abraham Lincoln thought it was their duty as good Americans and good Christians to help Jews return to the land of Israel. He recalled how a Christian Congressmen from West Texas opened a Bible and asked him how much funding Israel required for the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Adams and Lincoln did nothing to help Jews return to Palestine.  Attempting to link them to a modern political movement is the worst sort of historical misrepresentation.

“US-Israel relations go back to spiritual ties,” Oren said. “God speaks only one language and it’s the language in which we are yelling at each other in the next hall. Jesus, Mary, and John the Baptist would today be considered Jewish settlers in Bethlehem. We are on a holy mission to ensure the Jewish state remains strong and beloved.”

God speaks only one language?  Well that’s downright stupid.  Any Christian, zionist or not, who believes that is as theologically ignorant as Mr Oren.

But here’s the worst part- the lie which purports to suggest that Jesus would be a ‘settler’.  Oren is doing nothing but playing games and fleecing the Christian flock with this little tidbit of dilettantism and – if not that – evil and cynical deception.  If anything, Jesus would take the side of the oppressed and denounce the religious leaders who are using people for their own purposes.  Like Mr Oren and the others propagating his Zionist line.

So, because Mr Oren is both deceptive and a dilettante, here’s your dilly, Mr Oren

I Don’t Know Who Dan Hangs Out With…

But I don’t know any Christian anyone much less preacher who thinks that Jesus is the Antichrist….

This Is Why No One Can Take Pentebabbleism Seriously: Bert Farias Wins the Dilly This Week

Writes one pentebabbleist in something called ‘Charisma

[Homosexuality] is such a putrid smelling demon that other demons don’t even like to hang around it. A genuine prophet of God told me that the Lord allowed him to smell this demon spirit, and he got sick to his stomach. And yet as humans, many embrace this demon. Yes, you heard me right. Being gay is demonic.

There is an account in the Bible where Jesus casts out 2,000 demons out of a man. The demons came out screaming and begged Jesus to send them into the pigs. The pigs didn’t want them, so they ran down a steep hill and were drowned in the sea. Pigs have more sense than some humans. People embrace homosexual demons, but the pigs would rather die than be possessed with demons.

Erm…  Bert Farias isn’t a member of SBL.  I suspect he’s in AAR.  Anyway, he’s a lousy exegete. So, Mr F., here’s your Dilly, and might I add, it’s very well deserved:
