Janet Mefferd is disgusted that non-Christians were at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Mefferd wasn’t only perturbed by the president’s comments on Islam, but was also outraged at the presence of the Dalai Lama, all of which she said revealed “the fundamental problem with interfaith prayer breakfasts in general.”

After reading excerpts from Obama’s 2012 prayer breakfast speech in which he pointed out similarities in the teachings of some of the world’s major religions, Mefferd said she didn’t know why Christians in the audience didn’t walk out because Obama’s interfaith “garbage” does nothing “to spare me from Hell.”[su_center_ad]

    What on earth does this woman think “interfaith” means?

    • Guy Lauten February 6th, 2015 at 11:08 pm

      Baptist and Protestant and Catholic and Lutheran is “interfaith” to these ignorant bigots.

      Intercourse…..the fun kind

    who said she’s spared?

    • jasperjava February 7th, 2015 at 1:25 am

      I don’t know if there’s a hell in the afterlife, but this woman creates her own hell in this life, with her miserable ignorance and bigotry.

  3. bpollen February 7th, 2015 at 1:28 am

    Somebody’s feeling threatened! That’s a good thing in this case.

  4. rg9rts February 7th, 2015 at 1:59 am

    She prayed long and very hard to come up with that christian response

  5. KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker February 7th, 2015 at 6:11 am

    She can’t grasp the fact that there are actually OTHER ridiculous superstitions in the world.

    • Mike February 7th, 2015 at 10:21 am

      Top ten signs you’re a radical Christian idiot…..

      10 – You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

      9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

      8 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

      7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!

      6 – You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

      5 – You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

      4 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects – will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving.”

      3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.

      2 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

      1 – You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history – but still call yourself a Christian.

        Mike, best read all morning. Thank you!

      • KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker February 7th, 2015 at 2:50 pm

        I think you pretty much nailed it Mike.

  6. Maxx44 February 7th, 2015 at 6:31 am

    Why is there such a time wasting event as a nation prayer breakfast in the first place?

    • fahvel February 7th, 2015 at 12:14 pm

      well son of a (damn, can’t use gun or bitch) watchamacallit, that’s one hell of a fine question – shoulda been prayer brunch.

      • Dwendt44 February 7th, 2015 at 12:30 pm

        A bunch of self righteous politicians and hangers on get to eat for free on the taxpayer’s dime. The gullible get the mistaken impression that our government is blessed by god, or jesus, or something.

    • tiredoftea February 7th, 2015 at 6:42 pm

      Politics. It was started in the fifties (Surprise!) and i’s run by the same clowns who brought us the kill the gays bill in Uganda, among other revolting connections.

    The clearest proof there is no Sky Chief is that s/he would have smited the crap out of these morons by now.

    • fahvel February 7th, 2015 at 12:12 pm

      a she would never have created them whereas a he would have just for the guffaws.

    • Scopedog February 7th, 2015 at 12:51 pm

      Or maybe the Sky Chief doesn’t give a flying fig about these jerks anyway…so why bother smite them?

      It’s their own words and actions that will do them in (see Jimmy Swaggert).

  8. Suzanne McFly February 7th, 2015 at 9:23 am

    because Obama’s interfaith “garbage” does nothing “to spare me from Hell.”

    There is nothing anyone else can do that will save you from going to hell, it is your own actions that save you.

  9. Mike February 7th, 2015 at 10:15 am

    Yea, cuz that’s what Jesus would say…Ah yes, that religion of love and tolerance.

    Was the Most Sacred Grand Semolina of the Church of the Lateral Saints of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (sauce be upon him) present at this gathering of the other religions of this country? If not then I would hardly consider it a religious gathering!

    Pasta Vobiscum


  12. fahvel February 7th, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    well then, off to hell with her. Best part about fundamentalists is that they believe they may go to hell and most of them, considering their hatred, will!!!!!!!

  13. Scopedog February 7th, 2015 at 12:49 pm

    Hey lady, it’s religious freedom in the USA. All faiths and those who are non-believers are welcome. It’s nice to see a President who actually honors this.

    Screw the fundamentalists.

  14. Kim Serrahn February 7th, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    And they say Muslims are obstinate.

  15. thinkingwomanmillstone February 7th, 2015 at 3:47 pm

    Listening to this woman, if I were to believe in Hell, I’d say there is nothing that will save her from going there. Unless all the sinners bar the gates so that they don’t have such a woman in their good group.

    • burqa February 7th, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      I disagree with the woman, but in my faith we try to give people chances, just as we’d like chances to change and do what’s right ourselves.
      Sometimes the right thing is just so obvious for some and not so for others.
      Sometimes what is easy for one person is difficult for another.
      This is how we are as people.
      We aren’t logical, we don’t always actr in our best interests and sometimes we make awful fools of ourselves. Sometimes we are so, so convinced we are right only to find out later we are so so wrong.
      This is human experience and I sure hope this lady changes.

      And thinkingwomanmillstone, when there comes a time when you screw up badly, I hope there are not hard-hearted people there who won’t give you another chance, who have no grace or mercy or forgiveness in them or who can’t turn the other cheek.
      If you mess up really badly, I hope there is someone there to love you in spite of it.
      In that, you will be shown the way in love just as this woman needs to be shown the way, in love, not malice.

      • thinkingwomanmillstone February 7th, 2015 at 9:20 pm

        Be careful when you try to dismount from that high horse…it’s a long drop.

        • burqa February 8th, 2015 at 4:48 am

          Honey, I was riding a horse before entering kindergarten or learning to ride a bike. I’m a pretty good horseman by now.
          Do you ride?

    what part of INTERFAITH is hard for these haters to understand?

    • burqa February 7th, 2015 at 8:16 pm

      It just fits the pattern we’ve seen over the decades with other forms of integration. It’s human nature.
      It’s sad, and awful but the focus should be on the positive aspects of it. (But of course we can’t have anything like that here, can we? There’s a rule that the land of liberals is hostile to people of faith – except for the Pope. He’s our token).
      It’s one of the frustrating things about human nature, we don’t all get things at the same speed at the same time.
      Some take a lot longer than others.
      So what should we do, make it so they stay divided or try to help bring them together? What is better for the community?

      Where I live is an amazing interfaith outfit that durned near performs miracles for those in need.
      It was an interfaith effort that won the fight to get our first homeless shelter here. There is no effort to change anyone’s beliefs – they seek agreement and do pretty good at keeping their eye on the goal. I doubt my community is much different than any of y’all’s. I’ll bet each of you have people in your neighborhood who set aside differences in love in order to serve, in love, those who are in need.
      These are special people, angels amongst us I like to say in admiration. Being able to help a little near them is a privilege and an eye-opener. It’s a shame to see folks in the land of liberals who are afraid to see what their local interfaith council is up to.

      Should be funny seeing the anti-faith crowd pile in and do what, encourage people of different faiths to get along?

      • tracey marie February 7th, 2015 at 9:35 pm

        we have been intergrated for many many decades, this is nothing more then common bigotry abd hate based on fear.You denigration of atheists shows you to be part of the fearful who stir the pot thyen claim moral superiority

  18. allison1050 February 7th, 2015 at 9:00 pm

    This is the AmeriKan versision of a christian they can keep it.

  19. cecilia February 7th, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    Dear Janet Mefferd

    Nothing will spare you from hell because you are creating your own hell Right now in this life….and you don’t even know what a jackass you are.

  20. Warman1138 February 7th, 2015 at 10:23 pm

    The old sky pilot has its work cut out on this one. She’s concerned she is going to hell and an interfaith breakfast does not help. I beg to differ, if she knows she is going to burn in that lake of fire should she not be grabbing and grasping for any means to avoid such a fate. Or, is her dislike of others and their beliefs so great she is willing to sacrifice her soul to an eternity of suffering? Not very smart nor logical, merely sad and weird.

  21. KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker February 8th, 2015 at 10:21 am

    Here’s a quick video of fine christian white folks from the south just doing what they did.

      The last lynching in the USA was in 1981, a lot of the lynchings that happened in the 60s were never solved so a lot of those people who did that could still be alive and walking among us….and voting republican.
