Jaw-dropping mini-collection of bilious quotations from the Christian right.
“If you’re not a born-again Christian, you’re a failure as a human being.”â€¨– Jerry Falwell
Or try this one on:
“God said, ‘Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.'” â€¨– Ann Coulter
I try to remind myself that these people are well-intentioned, but have trouble believing it sometimes.
Update: For the first 15 seconds you’ll be convinced forceministries.com is some kind of cruel joke. Then you’ll realize it’s not. The real cruel joke is the painful misunderstanding of Jesus’ message.

No, I’ll have to disagree. I’m a Christian and have been around far too many of these folks – and many of them are not well-intentioned at all. Or they have such a perverted idea of what “good intentions” are that it becomes unrecognizable to anyone here on the non-disturbed side of sanity.
You don’t have to remind yourself that these people are good intentioned. I’m almost done reading Sam Harris’s book The End of Faith – http://www.samharris.org – a good (though scary) antidote to religious convictions of all colours.
