    He, Pat Robertson, and James Dobson should hold a contest to find out which one is the craziest of all.

    Should we be worried about another Jonestown at this point? Honestly? That kind of talk really makes me nervous.

    Lets face it all these guys including Farrakhan make a living preying on those without enough smarts to figure it out themselves . Religion is a business of selling spin and old primitive fairy tales and this is simply spinning plate tectonics into gods wrath. Then here we go again blaming the white man. These guys just simply suck. Its past time to call religions what they really are and thats Snake Oil Salesman.

    Would it really be so bad if him and any nutjobs who follow him went off to a jungle and drank some Kool Aid laced with cyanide?

    Well, I don't know about that.

    Well, yeah. Think of the innocent kids they'd probably take with them.

    That's what makes these kinds of things so tragic. I've just never heard of a movement this big falling for this stuff. But it looks like they are.

    Ironic that he would cite from a book by L. Ron Hubbard. Considering it's well documented that Hubbard was a racist. Of course, why am I even trying to make sense of Farrakhan's actions.

    You have to feel bad for the flying saucer guys....

    "Dammit, Yeltar! Why do you keep picking these nutball losers to kidnap and anally-probe?? That Pat Robertson guy was bad enough...then this Farrakhan...OMG, I'm so embarrassed! I'll never be able to show my face around Zeti Reticuli again!!"

    Religion should go back to being a personal spiritual connection between a person and god (if they believe in god and are religious). Organized religion will ALWAYS fall prey to power hungry people who see an opportunity to exploit people's faith for either power, politics or money. This has happened with every single religion and is responsible for some of the modern world's most pressing issues.

    Power hungry people stealing $$$ selling myths and tales to those who ...want to believe in the thought of 17 virgins and everlasting life of singing songs to god.....and then we dont even tax these snake oil guys is just simply ridiculous. Tax them all that would shore up todays economy fast. Religion is a Big Business with as many crooks as Congress.

    Religion is nothing more than emotional masturbation.

    this i agree with. get away with the "religious" exemption.
    still exempt the documented charity aspects of their activities, with the same rules as non-religious charities, but everything else should be treated as a normal business.

    NO- I do NOT want religion involved in politics. That's why they are exempt in the first place. If they break that rule, we should fine them. But I do NOT, under any circumstances want them taxed so that they can insert themselves into politics. That is scary, and un-American.

    So I assume you refrain from religion just like you refrain from all forms of masturbation?

    Add Jim Bunning in there and you have enough for doubles in tennis. ;)

    Actually, I shouldn't put Bunning in the same category as those three jerks as Bunning will reside in a deeper level of hell than LF when he kicks the bucket.
