One neednt look any further than Christs words to see that so-called vegans are nothing more than sorcerers and demons, mocking God while spitting on His Sons final supper. They know God loves meat and has ordered us to eat as much of it as we can.<br><br><br><br>
The Bible makes clear that God created animals for one purpose only - our nutritional and intestinal satisfaction. Just as God <b>created woman solely to be the servant of man, meaning women are to obey their husbands at all times, keep their mouths shut</b> in church and never teach (1 Timothy 2:11-15; Ephesians 5:22-24), so, too, God created animals so we would have something to fill our stomachs with after a hard days work.<br><br><br><br>
The bible is a good book, it can be used to prove almost anything. (no pun intended)<br><br><br><br>
Imho this is just a site made by some religious extremists.<br><br>
There are also sites that say that veg*n is a natural thing, and that god gave us responsibility to take care of the world and the animals.

Fear not--this site is a joke. It's entirely a satire. It is rather biting, and rather offensive to anyone who doesn't like to see religion the butt of a joke, but it isn't to be taken seriously. In fact, you can look in the "Terms of Service" to find the words: "The Landover Baptist Church is a work of fiction. It is a satire/parody." All of the writings are meant to be "in character". I'm a Christian myself, but I still visit this site on occasion. It's quite hilarious. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I have heard some "Christians" use the "vegetarianism is a sign of the horrors of the end times" line on me. I nicely point out that in the Thousand Year Reign of the Lord, it seems likely that we'll all be vegetarians, if the lion laying down with the lamb is indicative of all relations between alive things. That tends to keep some people quiet, but not the extremely pompous ones.<br><br><br><br>
As a Christian and en-route to veganism, I get disgusted with such nonsense.

and it says right at the bottom of the page "this parody is copyright..."<br><br><br><br>
and remember that: "possession of pornographic material [is prohibited] (except for widowed or single men over the age of 65)"

Aren't you ultimately glad that it's not for real, Michael? Sure, people like that exist, but at least they weren't responsible for that site.

although I know Landover Baptist Church doesn't exist in real life, it does have a striking resemblence, in preaching style and message, to <a href="http://www.godhatesfags.com/main/" target="_blank">Westboro Baptist Church</a> which does exist.

So part of it is a joke.<br><br><br><br>
The part about the woman is for real though.<br><br>
In my country, we have a political party of heavy believers (dont what to call it otherwise) and they look at woman at the way the site says.<br><br>
Woman can join their political party when her man agrees.<br><br>
Nevertheless, woman cannot represent the party in the congress.

It's not really a joke per se... It's satire, meant to show you how rediculous a strict literal interpretation of the Bible is. That entire sermon is Biblically accurate in a sense, and it's all based on reality. It's just that no normal Christian would say any of that.

kpickell,<br><br>
That depends on how you define normal. Would you categorize someone who says any of those things as abnormal?

"I have heard some "Christians" use the "vegetarianism is a sign of the horrors of the end times" line on me."<br><br>
----------------------------<br><br><br><br>
Pope John Paul actually has high regard for vegetarianism.<br><br><br><br>
However a possible successor , Cardinal Biffi thinks the anti-Christ is a gegetarian<br><br><br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/668048.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/668048.stm</a><br><br><br><br><br><br>
This Biffi character sounds like a very uptight mean person from what I've read. I'm not a Christian but I hope this idiot (I have read some of his thoughts on women, other religions etc) doesn't become the next Pope.

Kreeli, thanks for the laugh. I thought their description of witches in the 1600s was really funny.<br><br><br><br>
The article has got to be a joke. I don't think the author(s) could be that dumb, at least I hope not. It's too dumb.to be offending.<br><br><br><br>
I think that kpickell might be right. It might be satire.
