Pharyngula

I had no idea…

D. James Kennedy, head mackerel of Coral Ridge Ministries, had a very serious heart attack last month. He seems to be recovering now, and let’s all wish him well and encourage him to relax, enjoy the rest of his life, and stop standing up in pulpits and lying.

Strangely enough, though, this opponent of godless naturalism and materialism didn’t trust in prayer and faith when physiological catastrophe struck—instead, he took advantage of the best and latest medical care. Funny, that…do you think he had a deathbed conversion? There are no theistic heart attack patients—they’re all clutching for the defibrillator, the pills, the expert medical assistance before they’ll rely on that ineffectual immaterial ghost in the sky.

    Maybe they themselves should model the behavior that they would like to see “the Darwinists” emulate. I wonder if they ever think about that, instead of just incessantly telling people how not to be.

    Agressive American fundamentalists have that special brand of Christianity, you know, the one without the Sermon on the Mount, the one where “if I had faith that I could move mountains, yet had not love”, I’d rocket straight into Heaven.
