Ask Google

I was experimenting with Google’s predictive text feature. I wanted to know how much of an impression I had made upon the great god. How many letters would I have to type just to be noticed? As it turns out, only six:

Bay of Fundie at Google

This got me wondering what else Google knows.

Oh, great Google, what do you know about Jerry Falwell?

Jerry Falwell at Google

What I find really funny about that is there are no other suggestions! It’s pretty definitive.

I tried typing in the names of other fundies, such as James Dobson and Tony Perkins, but Google offered me no wisdom there. I was a little surprised.

Well, then, I thought. How about one of the more ridiculous fundies?

Kirk Cameron at Google

Wow! Google sure has a lot to say about him!

Ahh, but Google is much more succinct about his goofy friend:

Ray Comfort at Google

    Funny; I get much more conventional suggestions – Jerry Falwell quotes, ministries, biography, etc.

    Ken Ham also googles as an idiot.

    This is a fun game.

    I just did it for “Ray Comfort is” and I got a third. In addition to those two it also listed “Ray Comfort is an ignorant fool”

    Good ole Kirk Cameron just celebrated his 42nd birthday! Check out the awesome party! So f’ing cool…

    Seriously, my office birthday parties were 10x cooler…even when my company was in bankruptcy.

    I’d forgotten about this. I can’t believe it’s been over two years.

    Now I get “Jerry Falwell is” dead, gay and an idiot.

    Well, at least he has options.

  11. Jeff Says:

    Apparently, there are “Christians” who also think Falwell is in hell. Our old buddy Fred Phelps, of course (is there anyone he doesn’t think is in hell?)

    And here’s a guy who thinks Jerry went to hell for the sin of philo-semitism. Seriously.

    (I can’t for the life of me understand why the mayor of Topeka doesn’t suggest to its Chief of Police that it would be expedient for Phelps and his daughter to have an “accident”. They’ve got to constitute the worst PR disaster ever to befall Kansas, a state already not known for turning out Rhodes scholars.)

    That’s why Poe’s Law was discovered. No matter how hard you try, the real fundies are more extreme than anything you can make up.
