Prayer vigil saves earth from antiChrist.
Just to prove that fundamentalist nutters aren't uniquely American a group of Dutch born again fanatics were holding a 24-hour "prayer vigil" to keep Satan and the antiChrist at bay yesterday. What caused this? Well yesterday was the 6th day of the 6th month of 2006. In purely numeric terms that would be 6/6/06. Well, that is close enough to 666 to have the nut cases on edge. The number 666 is supposed to be the mark of the antiChrist and is taken from the bizarre texts of the Book of Revelations in the New Testament. That is one freaky bunch of nonsense and reads like someone writing on a acid trip.
An organiser from Ambassadors Ministries, Mathijs Piet, said, "We know that on this date Satanists will try and do many things, so we Christians try and do the opposite. We know the Devil hates it when we worship God." Apparently the day came and went without any fanfare or outbreak of Satanic forces. So obviously the prayer worked!
I know that if I hop into the bathroom on my left foot I won't find an allegator in the tub. Everytime I do this it works. Not once has there been an allegator in the tub when I hop on my left foot. I also find that the sun rises every day as long as I have something to drink the day before. Never fails!
Speaking of the supposed antiChrist that the fundie nutters go on about. According to the bizarre Left Behind series of books, which are a novel series about how the world will be under the antiChrist United Nations Forces, the antiChrist was conceived using artificial insemination with the sperm of two gay men. Nice little touch of bigotry there don't you think. Folks, gays are the new Jews.
