You know, I can't even seriously comment on this. To explain how truly warped, deceptive and wrong this is, you'd have to know enough about the Bible to ... well, you'd already know.

What I AM going to say to those who consider folks like this to be Christians is this. They are not. They are heretical fanatics who are at best ignorant of the Bible and at worst deliberately misrepresenting what it says.

Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins make Hal Lindsay look like a rigorous scholar - hell, their book makes "Chariots of the Gods" read like "A Brief History of Time" by comparison. And as violent herosexist patriarchal splatter fiction goes (a genre I'm not above indulging in) "The Punisher" series is far, FAR superior, both in description, technical accuracy and the rounded emotional development of characters.

Believe it or not, I am not being sarcastic.
