Fred Kellers Killing 'god' Is LOL Funny!

This was on Yahoo on a thread about what a wonderful fun day Atonement is.  Apparently it is also  hilarious that Armstrongism's god is such a blood thirsty murdering thug.  LOL brethren!  LOL!

It is a day to rejoice and not feel ugly because you are hungry!

One of my favorite memories was of a minister, Fred Kellers, who came out and yelled at us, "God is RIGHTEOUS to destroy his enemies!"  lol. Once he brought a statue of Mary out & broke it with a hammer, to everyone's astonishment.

We highly recommend that the Armstrongists sacrifice the blood of bulls and goats to illustrate what the Day of Atonement is all about.

Yet another example of an anthropomorphic "god" modeled after HWA.

Giving credit where credit is due, Fred Kellers sent an e-mail to me several years ago apologizing for a sermon he gave in Washington, D.C. in 1969. Here is what he wrote:

"I would like to apologize for the comments that you mentioned. In 1969 I was just 29 years old, too young to be a pastor. Many of the things I said and did in the first years of my ministry are a great embarrassment to me. I was a young fool. I apologize to both you and God."

End of Fred kellers quote.

It takes a big man to admit error, and the words Mr. Kellers wrote to me apologizing for a sermon he gave over 35 years ago makes him a big man in my book.

Apologizing doesn't minimize the

I agree that apologizing doesn't minimize the damage done, but it still reveals character. I said things and wrote things when I was a young, stupid ministerial assistant in New York and a brainwashed, equally stupid letter writer in Pasadena that I now repent of and am horrified over.

I can never make adequate amends for those statements and the harm they did. My only defense is that I was deceived and didn't st that time know any better. Thus, I can be a bit forgiving toward Mr. Kellers. At least he had "balls" enough to apologize. That takes a bit of character.

Even those of us who are not or were not ministers mispoke, made mistakes, and ended up damaging others. Most of us, due to the teachings of the Bible, tend to hold ministers to a higher level of accountability, because we've relied upon them for spiritual guidance.

Apologizing (without reservation or minimizing modifiers)does not undo damage, but it can often make things less bad. Most of us would like to see Armstrongite ministers go all the way and totally repent of their Armstrongism, but a partial and non-self-serving apology is most definitely at least a very excellent first step.

there must be a special place in the 'roasting room' for you guys...

Thanks, Richard, for quoting that e-mail. Never mind our theological differences; I like Fred Kellers and admire him. That message sounds typical of the man I know.

That sermon where he smashed a statue must have been a hoot. I generally dislike CoG sermons even by likable preachers, but that one would have been fun.

In conversation Fred is witty and fun. Once I hunted deer with him and some members of his congregation. That year's feast was still fresh in their memory, and when we assembled for lunch, one man was reminiscing about it fondly. He said, "You get all that good wine, all that rich food, you feel like you've got to get a little piece every night."

Fred grinned at me and said, "That's why [Prof]'s not in the church. He can't come up to our standards."

Story about global warming again on the news.
The gods have the freedom to rapidly accelerate global warming because of unregulated Chinese industrialization. And they are using it.
Whereas US industrial regulation combined with automotive smog devices had contained, the shameful emmissions at the hand of Italian capital which financed this chinese growth will ultimately kill our planet.
The gods must abjectly hate the Italians:::They ruined our cultures, eliminating Old Worlds around the globe, they destroyed our societies and now they will be used to ruin the planet.
Intelligent design:::Everything the gods do has purpose. There was purpose in the Italian boot, the Scandanavian penis, the sheep of Europe and the SFBA Beast. Chinese/Asian slanted eyes is yet another. Designed to make them/some look evil, they are a warning to other races. What is occurring with enviornmental degredation is living proof.
Never forget the shameful experience we each had in 2008 when the Chinese desperately tried to clean up the envionment in Beijing.

Recall the $5 trillion Republican scam where W set up the evil Democrats to sign the credit card receipt.
Expect some portion of the $5 trillion stolen from the United States creatively went to the Catholic Church, positioned to bitterly complain they lost their affluent white parishoners for poor Latinos and this is all their doing anyways.
I always suspected there has been a skim on the US General Fund all along and I was right. And the gods are using these clone host fakes to kill Planet Earth, financing China industrialization. The puppeteer pulling the strings, ironically.

Jesus is a false god.
There is no Satan. The world around us is all the god's doing:::You have to be tested with temptation.
Christianity is a test.
Muslim misery? The gods claim they are trying to "help you". The gods control everything, choreograph all that we see, including Isreal's relationship with Palestine, an "obligation" for their money-grubbing acceptance of the Evil Empire's billions. They also control the Italians, victims of the Moorish invasion/rape of their women, positioned in charge of this false reality through Christianity.
The gods created all this to position this reality you experience today.
"Earning" is temptation. It is a lie leading people into Damnation. Any hope of the Muslim world regaining the power they once had is long since over and it will never, ever return. Their acts 0f terrorism are only hurting them in the eyes of the gods.
The gods claim they are trying to "help you", but they also stoked your pride with your regional superpower status of centuries ago, rendering their efforts today merely destructive, a very bad sign. This means the gods have major problems with your people.
Never forget:::The gods work in mysterious ways. A mortal trying to understand may envoke their wrath. You shouldn't need to.

I believe the gods relocated the Jews to another planet before the Holocaust began to give them additional time before Earth fell into the social decay Christianity and the United States is responsible for. I suspect this favor included some/many of the Native America peoples as well.
Unfortunately for Muslims you didn't have the favor necessary to be allowed such generosity. I believe it is due to your mysogyny, your belief women are inferior to the men. This does not include veiling, which is a positive for the people and helps maintain decency within your society.
Orthodoxy is always the best course of action because, as I have repeated, old is mostly good and a little evil, while new is mostly evil and a little good. This applies to Islam as well.
