Golden rule .. never trust a fundy.

On the other hand, Maxim Institute continues down its path of community service.

Will he now appear on the cults.co.nz website with a "dangerous" epithet after his name, like Phil Goff?

Adam Owens is not "of the Christian Heritage Party". He is an Australian fellow who was contracted in a couple of campaigns the party ran in elections.

In spite of that ..

It goes to show that the Christian Heritage Party knew how to pick 'em!

Whatever happened to the Flanagans?

What I'd like to know is why Capill didn't do anything about getting help for Owens before it became too late.

Mind you, fundies are incredibly backward when it comes to psychotherapy and counselling, so perhaps not...

Okay Paul, this is about as far off-topic as I could manage - but it's one of the funnier things I've seen in a while and I thought you might appreciate it.

Sam, you're right: it is ridiculously funny; and sadly true.

Craig asks:

"why Capill didn't do anything about getting help for Owens before it became too late".

You must have heard the news Craig. Capill needed just as much help himself!

Another break in transmission for this news flash:

There is a funny sentence here. Apparently the 3 Exclusive Brethren folk that visited Bill English has "lost faith in the political process"!

Dear Paul,

The horrors of Garth George's weekly column are probably very familiar indeed to you, but I thought I had best send you this. It's a forum post I made on Lost Otter, where I basically followed all of the icky little groups that George referenced to find out who he was using to support his arguments. I send it to you in the hope that you'll be able to sleuth around much better than me and find out more about these ghastlies, especially the Nordic group.

Where are the Flanagans, Paul asks. Maybe they are writing a book? It seems to be the Year of the Fundy Book, or is it the Year of the Grand Conspiracy? In anticipation, I have cleared a space in my living room, as I'm sure there will be much ROFLAO at the appearance of Eve's Bite, Ian Wishart's next "bestseller" (NOT!).

Excerpt from The Scribbler, NBR April 13, p19:

"...Not all blogs are on the internet. One that would be too long to read on a screen was published this week. By Ian Wishart (#1 Bestselling Author), it
looks like a book but is actually a blog.

Without giving away too much of the plot, which wanders off almost straight away and gets lost in dense bullshit until miraculously rediscovered hiding in the index, Wishart's latest conspiracy outing involves homosexual atheists, atheistic homosexualists and Islamofascists in a plot to bring down western civilisation.

If this book had armpits it would sweat. Open it anywhere and cop a blast of paranoia's acrid whiff. That's one reason why it's more like a blog than a book.

Another is it shares the blog's main limitation - countering opinion with opinion, dis belief with dat belief, your meat, my poison. It's the blogger's charter: Brown on Farrar, Farrar on Brown, tit for tat, this and
that; reflections in a hall of mental mirrors leading nowhere.

Wishart also has the blogger's confidence in being the first to stumble across insights and linkages previously hidden or, in Mr Wishart's conspiracy, deliberately concealed.

Out in the real world, however, everyone knows the real threat lies not in homosexualist atheists, Islamofascists or even Botswana-based psychodyke cryptolezzie cabals and their local operative Steve Maharey. It is not Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda that we should fear.

A far greater threat to our way of life comes from an even more insidious conspiracy between Bill Gates and Microsoft and Rupert Murdoch and FoxNews."

Bummer man, Wishart's book IS another bestseller after all...

Yes...maybe the gays are buying it; apparently IW devotes a lot of this book to his fixation on Gays. ... the guy has hidden "issues" LOL
