The Drive By Irrelevancy

For this week’s Forge post we have another example for Adventures in Pointless Exercising by YouTube Fundy Atheists.

Here’s a  comment that was made this week by one such styled “wasup265”:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Wow, how nice of God to deny a gay person heaven for something that wasn't ever a choice in the first place. Also, how nice of him to command the death of those people as well. Isn't it funny that modern society has become more moral and tolerant than your God?

Now here’s a question. Where do you suppose he posted this on my channel?

On my vid on homosexuality? That would be a good guess. Except I don’t have any vids on homosexuality.

Try this one:

It won’t take you long before you scratch your head asking, as I did, “What’s any of that got to do with 1 Cor. 6:9-11, gay people going to heaven, or OT penalties against homosexuality?”

And of course, it has nothing to do with any of that. Historical references to the parting of the Temple curtain at Jesus’ crucifixion has as much relevance to those issues as the mating habits of the snail darter.

That’s something else typical of YT fundy atheists. Not just the vacuous sermonette, but the drive-by irrelevant comment. I’m guessing wasup265 has some sort of personal hobby horse he likes to ride, so he feels the need to vomit forth with irrelevant complaints like this one when he can’t figure out how to respond to the arguments the vid is actually making. Call it a case of hurling the elephant, except all they throw is one hair off of the elephant’s posterior.

It’s not for no reason that I closely moderate comments on TektonTV.
