Big Brain Brian at Hot Air seems to have little faith that Alexandra Pelosi may have actually heard some of his fellow Brides of Jesus use the phrase “Hellâ€™s Box Office” to describe Home Box Office:
This experience is a lot like my own: Born and raised near Dallas. Southern Baptist since I was conscious. Never once in my life heard â€œHellâ€™s Box Officeâ€ before Alexandra Pelosi inflicted it on me in that clip. Not once.
Pelosiâ€™s smear is similar to Andrew Sullivanâ€™s â€œChristian Reconstructionistsâ€ nonsense. There might be 50 of those guys in the whole country, but Sullivan uses them to smear the other 20 to 50 million evangelicals even though weâ€™ve never heard of them and those of us who have heard of them (through Sullivanâ€™s rants) disagree with them. The Hellâ€™s Box Office thing is probably the saying in one church where Pelosi happened to conduct her zoological research. It is certainly not a dominant meme in the hallowed halls of megachurches throughout these United States.
So basically, sheâ€™s full of it.
First off, on behalf of all non-believers, I want to apologize to the ever-delicate Brian for having the phrase Hell’s Box Office “inflicted” upon his sanctified ears. I hope that it didn’t cause both of his palms to spontaneously bleed or leave the mark of the beast anywhere near his nether regions. Secondly, I think it is sad that Brain is unwilling to accept that, yes, maybe some use that phrase, just not those in his own personal Jesus circle. Hey, if a dead guy can rise from the dead and roll away the stone, isn’t it possible that a fellow fundy could coin a funny?
Stranger things have happened. Just read your bible…
