The Guardian on TBN's Holy Land Experience Theme Park in Orlando

We're all working past the fifteenth tamale here, so excuse us if we're almost a week late to the hilarious write-up that the British paper The Guardian did on the Holy Land Experience, the Orlando fundamentalist Christian theme park owned and operated by our Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Reporter Tanya Gold, in classic British travel-writing snobbery mode, eviscerates the Crouches and their park--she calls Jan Crouch "an evil Dolly Parton," and lays on the insults almost as thick as Jan's mascara.

You almost feel bad for the people who go here (few, and almost all "elderly white couples," Gold asserts) until you remember--this is TBN Crazy Christian Land.

Gold chats with a shopkeeper "dressed like a first century Jew," who says she's never been to Disney World because God told her not to go. Why? Because it's full of "gays pawing each other."

"That is the thing about Religious Fundamentalists," Gold sighs. "Just when you think they are OK because they are well-mannered or kindly looking, or simply don't hit you with a stick, they remind you of their intolerance. Don't cross them, in a pun or anywhere else."

I would rather give the $35.00 to a homeless person.  Or go get drunk!

Heathens will never understand Christianity. So why do they bother trying? But carry on, mockers & scoffers, just the same, as your attitude was foretold in the very book you hate. We are not taken off-guard by the attitude but rather expect it from non-believers. Par for the course.

Even so, Jesus will forgive any & all vile things anyone says against Him or His followers if only they will repent (change their mind) & put faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. Yes, it really is that simple.

She's also wrong with her statement " ... would rather build a foreign land in America than actually travel there (unless there are the funds to invade) ... ", we are quite happy to invade without providing funding, then blame the liberals for the deficit because the rich are being over-taxed. Or something.

In choosing to highlight " almost all "elderly white couples " , Klavito displays his leucophobia and paleophobia yet again.

"That is the thing about Religious Fundamentalists," Gold sighs. "Just when you think they are OK because they are well-mannered or kindly looking, or simply don't hit you with a stick, they remind you of their intoleranceAgain, Why cant anyone else be tolerant of what they believe? 

People are falling all over themselves to not racially profile Muslims because god forbid we actually recognize that every terrorist act against our country with the exception of the Oklahoma city bombing was carried out by a male of middle eastern descent between the ages of 18 and 40... Yet there is no problem whatsoever casting dispersion's on Christians because they believe homosexuality is a sin? 

A 2000 year old establishment isnt going to change what it fundamentally believes to be sinful behavior and they are definitely not going to change with some Snotty Limey smacking them on the nose about it. 

I'm not sayin I'm just sayin!
