World Nut Daily wants to bring Christianity to Egypt!

So I get a frantic email from asking for donations to help them bring the word of Jesus to the heathen Egyptians. Because, y'know, Egypt has only had Christianity for a brief time -- only since 42AD.

What's so wondrous about modern U.S. evangelicals is their utter ignorance of geography and history... including the history of their very own Christian church, of which Egypt was a major part up until the conquest of Egypt by the Arabs in 641AD.

  1. Orthodox Christianity doesn't count to the's gotta be the "born-again" kind...y'know...the original kind...which traces its roots way back to the 1800's in the southern US.

  2. Yeaaaaaaah, because those Egyptians have no firm concept of any religious ideas, and when they're exposed to the awesome jibber-jabber of Christianity -- now with 20% more talking snakes! -- they'll be pushovers for the One True Faith!

    When I hear of something like this, I don't expect the WND beggars to send any real missionaries to Egypt. It's just a scam to swindle more money out of the ignorant, for whatever lifestyle the scammers are trying to support. The question is, how much spare money do people have who are stupid enough to respond to such drivel? If they're THAT dumb, I reckon they must be poor, too.

  3. Moderate -- you said it. They don't believe that a church founded by one of the Apostles is "true" Christianity. It boggles the mind, but true.

    Bukko: 20% more talking snakes? And don't forget Bibles written in God's own language, the language that Jesus spoke -- English!
