This is the one hundred and forty-second installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video advertisement for the David Stanley Auto Group, located in Midwest City, Oklahoma.

    Actually it was added to things in the McCarthyite 50’s to differentiate us from the “godless commies”. It was done around the same time they added “under God” to the Pledge.

    Cause we “Godless” are such dangerous things.

      Not really, it goes back to the Civil war with the meddling of clergy pressuring the U.S. mint. (Somewhat inspired by an obscure verse of the Star Spangled Banner)

      It was the ’50s when it became the official motto, though the original (and contradictory in my opinion)”e pluribus unum” still makes it on currency. The last of the godless coins was the Buffalo nickel last produced in 1938.

      The Supreme Court allows it as “Ceremonial Deism”, which means basically it is so often repeated no one takes it seriously as religious. This is in strict contradiction to reality. When the motto was moved to the edge of the basically non-used presidential dollars congress acted swiftly and assuredly to move this bit of mere flourish to the front of the dollar coins. This was likely precipitated by a few mint errors that omitted the motto from the edge of coins and caused enough controversy to get attention. But the congressional action shows the motto is taken very seriously by those who would recast our secular republic as a theocracy.

    Oh, barf. Geoff, Imma gonna puke with you.

    And Bruce, why didn’t you tell us that they were remaking “The Stepford Wives”? Glad there were teleprompters when they made these commercials. That woman looks and acts like she hasn’t had an original thought in many years.

    After seeing those ads, I wouldn’t set foot in that dealership even if they were giving cars away.

    One thing I don’t understand is how they are being silenced? Since they can make that ad and express their views and beliefs and bullshit and not be killed or thrown in jail. They honestly need to HTFU ( harden the fuck up).
