    let 'em pray all their little brains out. While they're stuck on their knees summoning the imaginary creations of their unhappy minds they can't do other more concrete damage.
    I suggest they pray till they die.

    This rag-tag bunch of imbeciles are not Christians. Let them make their irresponsible cracks (and "prayers") in private. We shouldn't give them any publicity at all.

    George Michael is a good, talented, kind, giving person. That is what a real Christian is about - not preaching hate.

    The religious right extremists here in the US have strayed so far away from the message of Jesus that they no longer qualify as Christians.

    Well said. I fail to see what is remotely Christian about this act.

    I will not be reposting this, as I think people like this crave the attention.

    Agreed. Although I don't think they ever COULD qualify as Christians. Hmmm. Let's see. Christ died for homosexuals(as well as heterosexuals, bisexuals, and transgendered people). These "Christians" are praying for the death of someone. Yeah. Pretty much the polar opposite. How they think they're followers of Christ is mind-boggling.

    Those "Christians" sure are a bunch of hateful little fuckers.
    Good thing I'm agnostic. I'd hate to call myself the same thing that they call themselves.

    From Matthew 5

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[s] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    I'm not even a Christian anymore and I know that much.

    Just ignore this stuff. It does no good to get worked up over all the hateful assholes, bigots and critters who post online. Especially if they are "religious". We all know religious freaks are mentally unstable.

    But your hate and contempt is no better than theirs, as hate is hate, and we know you are just full of love for one.........Thus you are very much the same as they.

    Let's not criticize the speck in another's eye until we remove the plank.... well, you know the saying.

    Anyways, as someone who calls himself what these people who pray for the death of a brother call themselves, I have to say it is hard, but hopefully by calling ourselves that, we can challenge their rocky faith.

    My church got a nasty email from the "Army of God" yesterday because they saw us listed somewhere as being gay-friendly. I looked up the "Army of God" and they are listed as a terrorist organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center, with connection to abortion clinic bombings, etc.

    Maybe we should start filling sandbags icon_eek.gif

    It is not up to any of us to judge the lifestyle of another person, let alone for his death.

    I have no idea what sort of life George Michael had, whether he was straight or gay, celibate or promiscuous, neither do I know the nature of his illness. Mainly because I wasn't a fan of his, although I did like one of his songs, Careless Whispers.

    But as a Christian myself, I'm fully aware that if this Keith pass judgement to another person, whoever he is, then Keith himself will be judged by God in exactly the same way.

    Some people have too much time on their hands and empty space in their heads.

    I pray for George's speedy recovery and that mercy shown to haters around the world so that they have a chance to learn life's true hard lessons of acceptance.

    I read a study not too long ago that showed that prayer had an opposite effect on those who where being prayed for. I can't remember the source, but it was conducted in a hospital setting, and patients where assigned prayer groups. The patients that received the prayers healed slower and had more complications than the non-prayer groups after the surgery. There was a negative correlation when it came to praying for people -- that is, the more prayers a person received, the less he/she healed.

    So, the moral of the story is let the assholes practice their black magic, using their prayer curses to harm people, because it will just backfire on them. Instead of George Michael dying, he will get better and become stronger.

    At least it seems that this is a relatively isolated nut job. And most mainstrain Christian groups would not publicly endorse such statements. But unfortunately, few would publicly admonish such statements. Kudos to the author of the article (a straight Christian male).

    Someone needs to start up "Moral Christians for All Americans" a group that would work to revoke any tax-exempt status of any group like this gang and that Hillsboro Baptist or whoever-the-fuck-it-is that protests at Military funerals.(don't tell me their name...it's like saying "Betelgeuse"..too many times and they appear!)

    Nor do I give a shit enough to know their correct name.

    There is already an association for the separation of church and state, and many christians belong to it.

    The funny thing is, nobody questions Fred Phelps, Pat Roberston, etc., tax status, but a preacher at one of our churches dared to suggest that Jesus would be against against war, and they got investigated by the IRS.
