For those that are searching for that special something, for that special someone, may I recommend:

It's a video game where you have the ability to "save" non-Christians...or blow them away. My favourite quote from the article:
When asked about the Arab and Muslim-sounding names (of some of the characters from the "enemy" team), Frichner said the game does not endorse prejudice. But "Muslims are not believers in Jesus Christ" -- and thus can't be on Christ's side in the game.

"That is so obvious," he said.

:shock:


'jesus is just alright with me'


'i have finally found a way to live in the presence of the lord'


What I don't understand is the quote that Muslims don't believe in Jesus. They most certainly do believe in the big guy, they just believe that Muhammed was the final, ultimate prophet from god. Man, fundamentalists of any stripe really get my hackles up.

Talk about amazing grace.

Love that the guy actually said "you are kind of like a freedom fighter". Yes indeed, those Christian fundamentalists are the epitomy of freedom. Hilarious stuff.
