Now Jesus was a Sailor ...Times are tough, and nothing is funny, but sometimes the “real” God (the Economy) plays an amusing prank on various fools who bet on the fake god: “Oral Roberts University will lay off about 100 employees, days after it agreed to a near-$450,000 separation agreement with its former president who resigned amid a spending scandal. The layoffs represent roughly 10 percent of the university’s work force.” PS: You don’t really need to go to “university” to be a religious nut, so don’t worry! [Associated Press/NewsOK]

    what’s a 10% less of 900 foot Jesus? 810 foot Jesus? doesn’t quite have the same ring, now, does it?

    this is just getting better and better. The moderate right wing freepers jumped ship just around election day. Now the Xtian fundies are blowing chunks and trying to save their asses from ch 11.

    I wonder if Mrs. Roberts’s janitor friend will be among the 100.

  • Darehead

    Of course, “Oral Roberts” and “university” was always a contradiction in terms.

    The fall of capitalism is a small price to pay to see holy roller hypocrites kicked to the curb.

    Where’s your pussyboy messiah now?

    They best distract themselves by banning gay marriages or teaching creationism before they end up having to face reality.

  • mattbolt

    Did they transfer them to their affiliated campus, Anal Roberts?

    I hear Anal’s known for being a smaller school, with a more narrow opening for acceptance. Some people love going there, others just think it’s full of shit.

    If Oral Roberts refuses to swallow these bad economic tidings, then who knows what BJU will spit out next!

    Nobody’s being “laid off.” They’re just being CALLED HOME.

  • trai_dep

    God’s punishing them for lacking the faith to spend 90x their current deficit and really put their faith in Babs Jeez. So c’mon, Oral, step to the (offering) plate, ya pussy!

  • MrsNateSilver

    Who the shit names their kid Oral? ORAL. Erlack. Crazy Christians are bogus vomit inducing stupidheads. Stupidheads can all go eat a bag of dicks, is what I say.

  • Worlds End

    I’m loving the religious crumble one by one. Seriously, they are jumping the shark every second now in their insanity.

  • Mull_Man

    They’re not being laid off, it’s just that everyone else is being left behind.

    Who is the real Econ o monity? I hear PERSONALLY that it is in fact a slave of big time-cotton producer Bill Ayers.

    [re=180707]Mull_Man[/re]: That Left Behind book was a tangible pile of dung leftover from our Catholic Priest overlords, right? My understanding is that Left Behind was kinda fucked in the ass and left to die somewhere between First and Mission St., er maybe Venice Blvd., er maybe the outskirts of Cicero Ave., er maybe even down on 8th Street between 8th and 9th Ave. where the trolls steal the souls of real human beings through brute force and cancerous gunfire.

    Meh. Just keep in mind, when Jeebus doesn’t care, nobody cared. I hope to fake-Gawd that becomes a reality today.

    Well, I guess they’re right- the end is coming now that we elected the Anti-Christ. And about fucking time! I’m sick of those who call themselves Xtians and have no idea what X embodied or espoused, even in the little fairy book they like to thump, let alone what he must’ve REALLY said. In Aramaic. Also.

    Update on my relentless pursuit to rebuild the republican party:

    My suggestion “YOUTUBE For Republicans” is currently on the front page with 70 votes.


    “Why is this funny?” You ask … Read it carefully, then click on the link within the suggestion (NOT SAFE FOR WORK (Let’s just say … it involves a woman shooting flames out of her asshole)). Many of the comments are worth many giggles as well.


    I am facehead and I approve this douchebaggery.

    Just today I heard Dr. Laura griping about how Godless Heathens are destroying America with their Godlessness. I guess this is just another example. Maybe it’s just that God hates Dr. Laura and Oral Roberts, and I’m pretty sure Mormons are on his poop list too now. – pretty entertaining, I love those crazy fucktards that think a person can’t be moral without religion- like before Jesus was in the picture people just ran around willy-nilly stabbing each other in the eyes with crude utensils.

    The fall of capitalism is a small price to pay to see holy roller hypocrites kicked to the curb.

    A small price to pay? Dude, it’s part of the plan.

    Part 1: Demolish international Capitalism
    Part 2: Elect black Premier
    Part 3: Abolish religion

    Soon we’ll be renaming ourselves the Union of Socialist States of America.

    USSA!,USSA!, USSA! Huah!

    Fuck. If Oral Roberts university goes under where am I gonna work on my P.H.D. in Dipshitery? I guess it’s off to my safety school: Liberty university.

  • Scooter

    I guess it’s true that time wounds all healers.

    BTW, anyone else notice that Tulsa OK is “KO-a-slut” spelled backwards. Oh and BTW #2, I met Oral Roberts once and he is WAY creepier in person, [if you can even imagine such a thing].

  • wallythepug

    Oral Roberts had a spending scandal? What, did the college president’s wife go shopping with Sarah Palin?

  • kimbongil

    Oral Roberts is just following the downsizing that took place over at Hogwarths. Conventional wisdom says that in times of economic recession, witchcraft schools take a beating.

    no news here

    Maybe the can join up with all those Focus on the Family losers who got a pink slip this week too.

    It’s off topic but you have got to see this throwdown between a wingnut and Nate Silver.

    I’m betting on an Oral Roberts education. (by the way is Anita Hill still teaching there?)

  • Anita Cocktail

    maybe the president of Oral Roberts should declare that unless the Lord gives him enough money to keep those employees on, he will throw himself off the top of the — oh, never mind.

  • J-Man

    This was obviously caused by a severe cutback in alumni contributions from Kathie Lee Gifford.

  • TGY

    Layoff all staff, go to online Oral Roberts ‘degrees’ because why not? Use teh intarwebs to advance the cause of Ceiling Cat.

    Aside: your laughing Jesus pic reminds me of another of my beefs against Christianity, namely Christ (yes ‘that One’) said, after the Beatitudes:

    Woe to you who laugh now,
    for you will mourn and weep.

    Christ was such a killjoy.
