Christian Trolls

Most unfortunately, my friends in Louisville lost a close friend early Thursday morning, which most of you probably know by now. Dylan Prott of Pocket Bomb seems to have leapt 20 stories to his death in WKU. Personally, I never knew him at all. I've been around him many times throughout the years, and I'm pretty sure I actually went to his house at one point, yet I never said a word to him. So, while this news certainly does upset me, and I hope he rests in peace, I really don't think it's my place to be posting a grievous livejournal entry about him. However, since his death was so unusual, it made headlines in the local news. While searching through stories about it, I ran across a comment that really pissed me off.

You can find the article here: http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061110/NEWS01/611100376/1008/NEWS01

The comment, IMHO, is completely out of line. I'm posting it here in hopes that someone at the C-J realizes this is insulting, and deletes it:

"You hate and strike out at me with words just as the unbelievers did to my Christ. I however will continue to pray for you. I will pray that your eyes will be open to the truth of God's word. Your hearts are dark and your spirits are dead. God has sent me and others throughout the world to expose man’s sin and to turn man to God through Jesus Christ.

After Jesus ascended to heaven God sent the Holy Spirit to this earth to convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. The Holy Spirit does this through each believer. Unfortunately many believers have chosen to stay silent during one of the darkest times in man's history.

You rebel against the truth because you enjoy living in sin. You've justified your evil lifestyle. Some of you say you believe but your actions show you to be a liar and the truth is not in you.

I'm not upset at Democrats because the Republicans lost. Pride displays itself before the fall. I lost nothing. But the innocent lost their lives. I'm grieved because the church did not step in and help the people who are against abortion. The reason why the Republicans lost was because some Christians did not listen to God this year. They got lazy of doing the right thing.

To all Christians who read this, remember the words of our savior "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men."

By voting for the men and women who agree that it is alright to kill a human, regardless of the development stage, you have become good for nothing in God's kingdom. You have allowed the cares of this world to choke the word out of your heart. Repent and return to your first works.

Many of you need to leave the dead church you are in. Find a church full of the spirit of God and where the word of God is proclaimed.

Louisville will experience a great outpouring of God's spirit in 2007. Only those who are thirsty for righteousness will be filled. God explained it to me this way. He will be creating the wave; we just have to ride it regardless of where he takes us or what we face next year.

To you unbelievers who are so caught up in the affairs of this world. Some of you will hear the truth but not understand because your heart is hard towards God. You will ultimately perish in your sin.
Some of you, even right now, are reading and understanding. You know in your heart what I'm sharing is from God. God is calling you to come to Him now before it is too late for you and the ones you love. Look up, keep your eyes on Jesus, guard your heart from the worthless wisdom of man, and be careful who you associate with. This world may seem alive but it is dead.

Some people in Louisville will meet God tomorrow. Some will be ready and some will not. Their destination is forever. To be with God or to be sent to gehenna. Remember, it could have been you. Get yourselves ready to meet a holy God."


Great! So you're hijacking the death of an 18-year-old as a means of pushing your Christian agenda, and implying that everyone needs to vote Republican, or else the rapture will occur directly over Louisville? And more insultingly, are you implying that Dylan was an unbeliever who jumped straight into hell, thereby meriting your rant about how this is going to happen to all of us, and specifically in 2007 no less?? If I were his parents for instance, the LAST thing I would want to hear is some fucktard's rant about how our son is not only dead, but is now burning in hell. What the fuck is wrong with you?!! If this is what you believe, fine, but leave Dylan Prott out of this. Was Dylan as uber-religious as this poster? I really don't know. But somehow, I don't think this is how he would have wanted people to respond to his death.
