"That's the beauty of Heaven... we can leave our brains behind."

Fundies Say the Darndest Things, often abbreviated to FSTDT, is (to use its own description) "an archive of the most hilarious, bizarre, ignorant, bigoted, and terrifying quotes from fundies all over the internet". Or, in other words, it's a community dedicated to mocking religious and political stupidity.

The history of FSTDT is a surprisingly simple one. The initial administrator, WinAce, found religious stupidity humorous, so he decided to set up an archive for the craziest of the crazies. He called it Christians Say the Darndest Things, but quickly changed it when he realized that Christian fundamentalists aren't the only people capable of saying outrageous things. Unfortunately, three years after the initial creation of the site, WinAce passed away from cystic fibrosis.

However, this wasn't the end of FSTDT as a new administrator, Yahweh (who saw fundies in much the same way as WinAce), picked up where the first left off, both in the memory of WinAce and as a project to improve her coding skills. However, Yahweh found the task of rebuilding and recompiling the website to be far more difficult than she initially expected and ended up abandoning the project after a valiant effort.

The third and current administrator, Distind (who watches fundies in an attempt to figure out what makes them tick), much more confident in his programming abilities, picked up where Yahweh left off and the site flourishes under his command to this day.

At first glance, the site seems to mock conservative Christians exclusively, but it only seems that way because they tend to be the loudest (in English-speaking countries, anyway). Stupidity of any religious or political persuasion is fair game and the site's history has had a respectable number of quotes from antitheists, liberals and other non-conservative and non-Christian fundies.

As this site involves religion and politics, be sure to choose your words wisely here.


Tropes used in FSTDT include:

Doctor Doom (59 links)

 Creedence Leonore Gielgud: "At least he's not claiming teh gays and Muslims are commies, and are in cahoots."

Notes

  1. Moses and his wife were an interracial couple, and God smote someone for complaining.
  2. You have to take into account the previous statistics when you go up, so there should be more than 24% with 100+ partners. But that would be if the statistics weren't complete BS.
  3. Just because something was recently manufactured does not mean the raw materials are young.
