Ray Comfort Declares War! Ray Comfort-Facebook-Bots, Attack!

Ray Comfort and a banana.
Okay, that might be a wee bit hyperbolic.

I have a fondness for New Zealand although I've never been there.  But I actually have a couple of lamb shank steaks roasting with potatoes, rosemary and cherry tomatoes in the oven right this very minute!

Okay, so otherwise I know very little about New Zealand, but when it comes to down under, I mean, if you were to include Australia then I'll admit to having an ongoing crush on Natalie Tran.

It's too bad Ken Ham also comes from Australia, but I diverge.

Speaking of crazy yet highly entertaining preachers, Ray Comfort comes from New Zealand.  Like Australian Ken Ham, I think he's probably a nice enough guy, who I'd love to have a beer with but he is still pretty kooky.  He's kind of like that old guy you probably know who lives on your street and occasionally starts talking to you about weird stuff after you are silly enough to respond to his cordial greeting while you're in a hurry to get to the store.

Well his movie - 180 - pissed the hell out of me and apparently his Facebook has over 100,000 likes. Just imagine 100,000 people pushing the movie 180?


I'll admit, I could only get through about 10 minutes of it.  I'll try later, I promise.

Ray Rallies The Troops!  Are Any Of Us Safe?

This is no joke!  The battle has begun!  One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.


"It suddenly dawned on me how Facebook is an incredible medium for the gospel. One of my posts was seen by 1.2 million people – many of whom are non-Christians," Comfort told The Christian Post via an email exchange. "Think of what it would cost and how much work it would take to have a Billy Graham-type crusade that reached 1.2 million people. But we can reach that many at no cost and with just a click of a keyboard button."
He added, "The average Christian can't stand on a soapbox at a university and preach, but he or she can now engage the unsaved and have their comment read by multiple people, all from the comfort of their own home. It means that a stay-at-home mom can reach out to the lost during a break from the kids. It means that those who are busy at work can reach the unsaved during their lunch breaks." 
Comfort, who has more than 105,000 people "liking" his "Ray Comfort" Facebook page, warns on his site that "YOU WILL BE BANNED FOR CUSSING OR BLASPHEMY."
Everyone man your stations.  Comfort-Bots could be headed your way.

    Ha! He's been in the news a lot lately for some reason. Oh well, he's highly entertaining.

    He'll expose the insanity of his followers to the general public and his followers to atheism.
    Doesn't sound like that could backfire.

    Maybe the goal is a whole army of Kirk Camerons. What a nightmare.
