    I am so glad to know that he is going to go and pee standing up in Germany! This is a bit over the top for me, I do believe that the bible should stand as it is, but what about the argument that it is now available to hundreds of millions of people now because of translations? What about the children’s bible should it have the same words EXACTLY as the KJ bible? I do not think so it might scare the little children if mommy wants them to sit down so it is not all over the wall.

    Titles include:
    Baptist Preacher preaches against Judaism
    The Truth about the Sodomites
    and my favorite:
    Why Billy Graham is going to Hell

    JC, was our Lord too tired to rise up out of the grave on Easter morning? I think you owe him at least this one simple command, that you pisseth against the wall.

    I love guys who cite scripture, defend it, use KJV only and then take it completely out of context. Good times there. If KJV was good enough for Jesus Peter and Paul then it is good enough for me!

    The original greek and hebrew are bastardized mistranslations, edited by the jews to mislead God’s chosen followers … umm, his other chosen followers.

    the KJV is more accurate than the greek and hebrew. All hail!

    Hey PC, you were asking earlier what our beef was with fundies. This guy managed to tie up the moral bankruptcy of Europe, America’s emasculating of the male nature, the error-ridden status of all modern translations, even his conviction that the word Jehovah (a non-existent Hebrew word) is the proper name for God, all in one tidy little verse about peeing against the wall.

    My problem with fundamentalism is this: it makes no allowance for the possibility that its biblical interpretation is actually cultural interpretation, and that they might be reading things based solely in cultural tradition back into the scriptures.

    By the way, this is exactly the same problem I have with The Right Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright. We’re equal opportunity cynics around here.

    “Pastor Anderson holds no college degree but has well over 100 chapters of the Bible committed to memory, including almost half of the New Testament”

    I love this. I think be might be a little over qualitfied, if you ask me.

    I still get a few emails every month or so asking why I use the NET translation for The Bible Podcast instead of the KJV. One went so far as to say, “It’s a shame that you spent all this time and energy on a project that is from the devil, not from the lord.”

    If I ever catch my sons intentionally pissing against the wall in the bathroom that this mommy cleans, there will be hell to pay. “Hell to pay” is a biblical quote, right?!

    Mike,
    I just wanted to know that I hadn’t stumbled upon a Unitarian blog (kidding) or something of that nature. I don’t have a problem with “fundies” or anyone who takes a more literal view of the bible than others might, but I do have a problem with bad bible teaching from an individual like this. Obviously for him to say a real man pees standing up and anyone else just isn’t a man is spurious at best. I take heart that I don’t hear a lot of amens or acknowledgments from the crowd.

    This post and the comments section is what keeps me coming back. Mike, concerning your post at 9:11 am today – Hear! Hear! on all points.

    I’m sorry, but the portrait of him on the website is just hilarious. It looks like he wasn’t expecting the camera to click.

    Reverend, if you ever read this, I’m sorry… but it’s true.

    jeez, Mike, that totally slipped my mind. I have been meaning for a while to tell you that your Bible Podcast was “of the devil, not the Lord”. Sorry, bro- slipped my mind. You know how it is, right? Anyway, I hope it’s not too much work to start over with the Lord’s version.

    Thanks, Buddy!

    Your Friend,

    I just listened to one of his full-length sermons (on missions and the love of money, since I was raised by missionaries and seem to be somewhat of a masochist). In case this didn’t come through on the “pissing against the wall” sermon, this guy is a total prick. So to speak.

    “I’m going to tell you something right now…(dramatic pause)…I’m not going to pee sitting down.”
    HAAAAAAAAA!!

    I’d like to see the worship set that went along with that sermon.

    Seriously though, someone needs to tell Matthew Fox that he should spend a liiiiiiiiitle more time preparing for his messages and a little less time in the bathroom.

    I remember after my motorcycle accident I was in the hospital and had to pee lying down…for three months. I would have given anything to pee sitting down and when I finally pee’d standing up, I almost fell over. What any of this has to do with translating the Bible I don’t know but I can assure you that some of my best Bible reading occurs in the bathroom but never when I’m pee’ing.

  18. Cerise

    I propose to you, Sir, that your urge to pee sitting and then standing up was the voice of God in your heart, prompting you to a life of compliance to scriptural mandates.

  19. Metanoya

    Agree that it was the voice of God but…the portion of the anatomy is off by a bit. To stand and pee, to be able to write KJV Scripture in the snow cursively is a joy.
