    Are you sure they just aren't teenagers who've jacked themselves off raw and are looking for something else to do while their wieners heal?

    Because frankly, it's hard for me to tell the difference.

    This site is awesome!

    Hey man, don't judge. It's hard to get ***** when all you do is troll about Apple on a religious site all day.

    As a Catholic, I feel I have to say that these kinds of people are not what TRUE Christians are. These are fiends operating under the guise of religion.

    Unfortunately the criteria to join the christian club aren't particularly stringent.

    why would you even consider giving them the satisfaction of increasing their member count and page hits?

    Before you do are you 100% sure you have a grasp of this whole "parody" thing?

    Read iscariot's link above. It's a satirical site. It's not real.

    pffff, not even worth it. although it is funny how much time and effort they put in. i can only imagine the work involved with faking an entire forum, especially with the plethora of sub forums they have in it.

    Okay I have to admit that's kind of funny. AFter all, apple'a logo was the rainbow colored apple for a long time.

    I was going to say that the church isn't real. You should have seen some of the things they put up on the site in the past.

    Like:

    Pickachu (Pokemon) was the work of the devil, where at night it would slowly turn your child to do the devil's work.

    Jar Jar Sucker Candy, This candy promotes oral sex. (I can't remember the rest for this one. If I come across the printout, I will post what they said about this candy.

    The site used to be really funny. Sad part, some people really think this is a true church.

    I just went though some of the forums laughing my ass off! LOL Man did I miss this site. (It's been on the net for a really long time, back when Netscape was just coming out.)

    And that is the problem. At what point is the satire/parody obvious and at what point does the site actually fuel Apple- and homophobia. There are many obtuse people who would pick up pitchforks and burn Jobs at the stake after reading through that thread.

    Interesting how the guy who expressed a mild liking of Apple is now banned and branded

    "Confirmed Enemy of God
    BANNED from Landover -- Aeternal Damnation Assured"

    These people are nuts.

    Exactly. The parody is too accurate.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again:

    The problem is not so much that some of us can't recognize parody. The problem is that many of the real-life crazies have become so extreme that it's hard to tell the difference.

    It's at the point where it's got to be getting hard for the parody writers to out-do reality.

    They are not smearing the religious. They are smearing extremists much like the Westboro Baptist Church members.
