More from the 'you can't make this sh*t up' department

Take two kinds of nuttiness, blend, and stir vigorously. What do you get? Sheer wackadoodliness.
ROSWELL, New Mexico, May 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Alien Resistance, a Christian counter-cult outreach ministry, will hold an all-Christian-speaker Symposium on aliens during the annual Roswell UFO Festival July 3-5th, 2009. The 11 participants include 4 PhDs, 2 doctorates of ministry, 2 pastors, 2 ordained ministers, and several pastoral counselors, with 12 books written between them on the UFO/Alien topic. The Symposium will educate on the UFO/alien topic from a Biblical Christian perspective, with emphasis on counter-cult evangelism, creationism, and spiritual warfare. . . .
Organizers assert that, "From a Biblical Christian perspective it becomes clear that 'aliens' are actually the evil spirits of the Bible. This idea is backed up experientially with the evidence of numerous testimonies of 'abductees', which show that 'alien abduction' experiences stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Also the sinful behaviors of the 'aliens' behind abductions, the false gospels and new age messages they proclaim, and their supernatural powers so very reminiscent of those described in the Bible as being had by angels, all adds up to make clear that 'aliens' are in fact the evil spirits of the Bible."

Paging deBeauxOs. We need another new term for religious mental illness.

Oh that particular religious mental disorder. I don't know what the scientific name is, I just call it 'Church Lady Syndrome'.

Y'know, seeing Satan lurking here, there and everywhere.

I prefer the Chariots of the Gods theory.

ET comes to earth in a blast of fire and brimstone (UFO power) and plants a few seeds. Takes off for 50,000,000 years and returns only to burn a few bushes, leave some instructions and leave her science project behind.

I shudder to think what will happen when her teacher grades it.

I needed that. Thanks. Sent off to some hurtin' compadres just now.

Believe it or not, I've heard this before from religious people.

And the Biblical book of Ezekiel, which is composed partially of the authors' journal entries on tripping from what I can see, does describe saucer-like flying wheels covered with eyes and accompanied by bizarre creatures with four faces and too many hands.

I'm sure that passage will feature prominently. I wish I was there, it would probably make for some pretty bizarre speeches.
