Update: Alas, we found out these aren’t real…but wouldn’t it be great if they were? 


Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and we are organizing to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on ballots everywhere.

    If you read the writings of the current Pope the Catholic signs are NOT all that far off. Like his namesake – St. Francis of Assisi, the Pope sees an interconnection of ALL creation on an almost QUANTUM level; with everything that exists being a Manifestation of the spirit of GOD – “Brother Sun and Sister Moon”

  • Roslyn Holloway

    Well who am I to say, but doesn’t it say in the bible that Jesus came back riding a horse? Where did the horse come from, if not from heaven???

    Dogs don’t have souls, but neither do people so I’m not the least bit butthurt about it.

    Don’t care if it’s real or fake, the sentiment that humans are the only ones with souls is so bizarre to me. The idea that God is human centric annoys me. And, I really like God a lot. Unfortunately instead of us being created in His image, I fear most religions have created Him in our image.

    FAKE FAKE FAKE!! All variations of each are the exact same photo. There are not variations in angle or perspective. You’d have to have a tripod and a camera set in the exact same space for the entire exchange and one for each. The white car is always parked the same way. The fonts used on each of the two church signs are the exact same font.

    • AATTP

      please read the article carefully.

    • jen

      The article clearly states its fake! Dumbass…..

      Alex you act like that’s not obvious to literally everyone.

    I think it’s stupid people are arguing over religion. We all have the right to believe what ever we believe in. I’m glad I let go of the catholic religion and became Wiccan.

      Good luck dodging those Hellfire missiles, Rufus. We’ll be watching the live feed of you attempting to stave them off with your shotguns.

      • Rick

        AATTP. I am NOT a member of the Tea Party however I find it interesting that you said quote “Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process”. end quote. If you can, would you please list all of the above things you mentioned that they have done? I would be interested in seeing this in print as I have yet to find anything on the Tea Party that remotely labels them any of the things you did. Please be sure to use actual facts and not lies and deceit like you used on this page to get people to come here. Thank you.

          Haven’t you noticed their racist signs, or comments at town meeting?

          • Rick

            No haven’t noticed their racist signs. I haven’t seen that in the televised media. I also don’t attend town hall meetings. Like I said I am trying to understand and learn. Can you provide proof?

      • Marie Finn

        Good one!

        Thereby making the point that citizens should have access to anything a modern infantry unit might deploy with, and the government shouldn’t have standing forces including police to use against the people, without volunteers mustering to support the cause.

        Good luck with passive resistance and voluntary citizen disarmament against militarized police and domestically deployed military forces in the pay of the corporate oligarchy.

        But “revolution” against true socialized support for living necessities and other egalitarian policies is bass ackards.
        Government isn’t impoverishing the nation by giving life’s necessities to those of us in need, it does it to fund wars and pay off blackmailing corrupt financiers.
        Where was this kind of talk from the right (which isn’t) when democracy or representation of by and for the people was stripped and the loser in an election was given the country by judicial coup in ’00?
        Where was resistance when we were lied to and led by the noses into illegal wars for corporate profit and political graft? The ones claiming political rationales for their dissatisfaction to mask racism against a rich elitist black president instead of a white one, were/are the main ones cheering on the wars and buying into the lies of the ethically and intellectually bankrupt so-called “right”.

    • PB

      In a battle of wits, tea partiers always rely on bluster and allude to violence. Congratulations on the your “brilliance.” Do you have any idea what exactly you plan to revolt against? A single issue or policy? Or do you simply mimic the other monkeys you hang around with? At least have the self respect to barf out some sort of platitude. You must be so proud. Zzzzz.

      • Bob

        I refuse to get into it with the T-party folks.. I mean, really, what fun is a battle of wits with half armed opponents?

    • mindyme62

      ha ha Rufus.. yeah, that’s NOT going to happen. Ya know why? because there are more sane people than insane people in this world and those of us who are sane want a better America for all people. Not just a select few

    • mike

      LOL. you willfully ignorant TPers have no idea what to revolt against in the first place. Do the rest of America a favor and revolt against yourselves, because sane Americans certainly find you to be revolting.

    • Al Duncan

    • Aunt Rufusa

      Awww! Someone with a really tiny pee-pee is paranoid and delusional! Can’t wait for THIS sideshow to begin! Have a great day, Rufus; reach higher, you’ll feel better.

    • tobyspeeks

      And Rufus, simply because some of us are for better gun control does not mean we’re not armed and well trained. Your delusions of grandeur will be your demise.

      • Frank Williams

        I second that one tobyspeeks. Rufus and his idiot Teafarty friends think because you talk sht, that people watching quietly can’t defend themselves. These people are truly stuck on stupid.

    • Just Me

      Wow. I don’t think you need armament, your obnoxious attitude is likely to drop people in their tracks with no weapons needed. Or maybe the rest of us will get lucky and you’ll have a coronary. :-/

Too bad we can’t tie them up and poke them with sticks, I bet that would really get them going. Oh well I guess we’ll have to just stick with logic and sane reasoning to make fun of them.

      Which is why the majority of Americans think you are crazy.

      Because upgrading our healthcare system to the same levels enjoyed by almost every other first world nation is just so horrible. I mean, if you get injured you should end up homeless if you aren’t rich enough to afford proper care!

      Quick question for you Rufus, do you know what percentage of the homeless are crippled/mentally handicapped/or dealing with mental illness? Here’s a hint, its most of them.

      But wait, your conservative Idols teach you, “I’ve got mine, so f**k you have fun living in a gutter!”

      Gee, and you people wonder why democrats are taking over this country. Have fun becoming completely obsolete!

      • http://www.stupidprogressivemyths.com His Majesty O’Keefe

        Noone in this country is denied healtcare. We spent $300,000 for a two month stay, there were illegal aliens on both sides of our room getting exactly the same level of care.

        • AATTP

          If you are diagnosed with cancer, and you have no insurance, where do you go for chemotherapy and radiation?

          You have a short memory. This kind of asshattery is partially why your side lost, and will lose again:

          Speaking with The Columbus Dispatch yesterday, presidential nominee Mitt Romney reiterated his vow to repeal Obamacare and put in place a system that relies mostly on having people go to the emergency room when they need medical attention.

          “We don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack,”” Romney told members of The Dispatch’s editorial board. “No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it’s paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”

          Actually, as many as 48,000 people die every year because they don’t have health insurance.

          And Mitt Romney’s Affordable Care Act alternative — which he has yet to fully outline — will add millions more to the nearly 49 million who went without health insurance last year.

          And all that before we even get to the heart of the matter: That emergency rooms don’t care for people with ongoing conditions; that emergency care is far more expensive than preventative care; and that once you have a condition that requires you to visit the emergency room, you are no longer entitled to cost-reducing coverage in Mitt Romney’s America.

    • devilrising

      Implying what, Rufus? That you’re going to murder all of us evil liberals, so that you can have your “God Fearing, Conservative Christian America”? Good luck with that.

    Why do so many people read text when it appears in a picture, but then ignore the text that goes along with that very image?

    • PB

      Because that line of text doesn’t look like it relates to the images — it just looks like all the other misc. noise we are confronted with on websites. Not only is it further away than a caption or other text accompanying a photo story would usually be positioned. it is small and gray and not as easy to read for many people as black text. As someone who designed and produced brochures, newsletters, etc. for 30 years, my #1 goal was always readability of the message followed by a cool page design with a logical flow. And I ALWAYS corrected all spelling while making sure sentences are complete and make sense. All of that has apparently gone out the window — people have opted for speed and simplicity. It is sad.

    • PB

      BTW — I read all the fine print on important things — but generally not with humorous websites suggested by others. It might be an interesting experiment to see how one’s productivity would be affected if they were to read every single word on every single piece that passes before their eyes in just one day. My guess is that it would take a month or more to read every word of the pieces we’re able to get the gist of in just one day. Unfortunately some are better at quickly vetting veracity of sources and getting the point of the words presented than other folks are.

      Absolutely loved that Twilight Zone episode and it was the first thing I thought of when I first saw this dogs in heaven debate via church signs six years ago and again yesterday when it popped up again. As an atheist I don’t actually believe in Heaven, but I am open to being proved wrong … surely if there is a Heaven, I have no doubt whatsoever that dogs will be there too. It wouldn’t be Heaven without dogs.

      … And thank you for digging it up and sharing it!!!

    Read the note on the bottom saying that this is fake…not reading fine print can mislead us all…funny as hell though :-)

    The Presbyterians are trying to squash the Catholic religion in America just like they have tried to do in Ireland for 400 years. Eejits!

    Since Luje 19:40 says “And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”

    Seems to me the rocks really will go to Heaven. Silly book….

  • Carol Broderick

    In eastern philosophy, soul is present in all the kingdoms: mineral, vegetable, and animal. So, dogs and rocks have a place in Nirvana, Sach Khand, whatever you want to call heaven.

    Amy Pike:
    I found these from Twain online
    “Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”
    “The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven not man’s.”

    My dogs have souls, sorry you God doesn’t.

    • Beverly Cleary

      I agree – look into their eyes and you shall see their soul. When I die I want to go to the part of heaven where they have the dogs. I want to help take care of them and love them and see all of mine that have gone on before me. God would not have made these beautiful, loving animals without giving them a special place in heaven.

      • https://www.facebook.com/gmason55 Glenda Schloff

    • Donna Bergman

      I read two books that were written by people who have died and come back from Heaven and they said there are animals there, dogs included. As someone said, God created the animals, too. I believe he gave them certain attributes so that they are able to be helpers to mankind. So it just seems natural that there would be some in Heaven as companions to those living there.

    Tea Partiers make enough REAL dumb signs that we don’t need fake dumb things to point out their ridiculousness. These signs are made at a create-your-own-church-sign website. It is fun and offers a chance for laughs and creativity, but this “argument” about dogs in heaven is just humor. Make your own at: http://www.says-it.com/churchsigns/ As an atheist, I’ve had lots of fun with them. Six years ago.

  • Jim

    This has to be fake!

  • http://twitter.com/SkeeterSkier Bubba Co (@SkeeterSkier)

    Adam almost ended up mating with dogs, as well as all the other beasts and fowl:

    Genesis 2:18-20

    “Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”

    Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.

    The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.

    Anyhow, the rib trick took place and, VOILA – Adam received Eve…the first call girl.

  • http://lamaldicionguttmann.blogspot.com EdgarTF

    Catholic dogs (like mine) go to heaven, presbyterian dogs can talk to their pastor. HAHAHAHAHA! Actually, theologically, presbytarian church is right, but i’m with my loyal catholic opposition on this one! ;-)

  • ronnie

    The Presbyterians need to lighten up it seems.

  • Cactus Wren

    If there’s a heaven, most dogs I know deserve to go there more than most humans I know.

    None of you have souls and none of you will be going to places that don’t exist, like Heaven.

    • Donna Bergman

      Kenyon, you are wrong. Human beings have souls, given by our creator, God. and He also gave us a free will. We can choose to believe in Him, or we can choose not to. But that doesn’t mean that Heaven doesn’t exist, Hell is real, too! It is a terrible place where Satan and those who chose not to believe in God will remain forever and ever in torment!

      • AATTP

    They are not real messages. The car, the lighting, the shadows, the angles, they’re all the same for each shot. Likely a sign generator or good ol’ Photoshop was used. Still, it is rather clever and funny.
