Message to Southern Baptists, "You're Not Welcome in New York!"

POST #    767

I have a message to the Southern Baptists that have targeted New York as a "strategic focus city", "get the fuck out of my town!" You have no place here. We are happy with one group of fools campaigning for religious conversions, we don't need two. It's like they are a cult, trying to get people to convert and join their crazy group. Can't they just leave New York alone? Let us choose our own faiths, don't push your crap on me.

I may sound crazy, but when you read quotes in a NY Times article that say, "we want to make New York the Jesus center of the world," something has to be said. They are targeting bars on 8th Avenue and the "temples of materialism" on Madison Ave. So in plain english, they are targeting gays and businessmen. God fucking forbid we have gay people in the world. And business? Forget about it. Lest you religious people out there say, "that Tien guy is really crazy," they have also marked Catholic churches, mosques and synagogues as parts of the world they also need to reach. While I am decidedly anti-religion, I am fine with people being religious. I just don't want to have it pushed on me or anyone else when I am cheerfully minding my own business.

The "little read book" reaches out to the hookers, pick-pockets, and crime element of New York, please don't let the Southern Baptists take over the city. I thought the RNC Convention this summer was bad enough, but both? Come on! Leave our fine city alone.

I almost can't wait for the Southern Baptists to infiltrate gay bars. Come on, that'll be gold.

jen, nothing would amuse me more than a gay man hitting on a southern baptist. so while that would be great, i don't think i can take them walking around on the streets.

Tien, it's nice to know that SOMEONE is reaching out to the hookers, pick-pockets, and other members of the petty crime element in NYC!! Don't forget about the bums and Pimps too, they are underappreciated as well!

damn justin, you're right! the panhandlers and pimps should not be forgotten. all of these people are valuable cogs in nyc's economy.

sweet, i just need an army of anti-christs. that has such a ring to it.

personally, i find the best weapon in the anti-christ arsenal...is the humble stink-bomb. doesn't hurt anyone, but it'll stop those fuckers from being able to proslytize.

Just think of it, I am in Utah right now, home of the Mormans. In a 2 hour ride from the airport in Vegas to St. George I was the NYer who saw 9-11 and the Jew. Kinda creepy. 'nuff said?

i just narrowly escaped a group of southern baptists (at least i think they were). they were bible toting white people and they were walking towards downtown brooklyn to spread the word. ack! stay out!!

Honestly... I'm not one for church, myself, but you people sound like a bunch of stereotyping inbreds to me. No? Am I wrong? If I am (and I'm not), then I don't want to hear you complaining next time you're in the South and someone refers to you as a "Damn Yankee Pig", a "queer", or a "Northern freak". You seem to be dishing out the same kind of insults just fine in this forum. Quote: "bible toting white people"; "it'll stop those fuckers from being able to proslytize" (I actually believe in Freedom of Speech... dumbass) You don't want to have religion pushed on you? Well, I don't want liberal politics pushed on me, and this is my city, too! So, FUCK YOU!

You people just as bad as the people you're criticizing, and you simply can't admit it. Hypocrits.

PS - I like your site, Tien, try to keep the division-inspiring rants out of it, please!

wait, i can't rant on my own site? you can feel free to skip the rants that you find divisive, but it's not going to stop me from writing them.

Fair enough.
