I went through the radio show to help mark spots. The Bishop really crosses the line after they hang-up on Acharya. Maybe they should be reported.
- 7:50 "But myth doesn't necessarily mean that it's true ... When you're talking about myth you're talking about the possibility of non-existence or non-truth"
- 8:37 "If I had children I would tell them that the sun is a ball of gas...it's not a being that thinks"
- 9:42 "I would say that [the Egyptians] are wrong"
- 10:21 "Just because [the Egyptians] thought at that time it was the appropriate thing to do doesn't make it the truth"
- 13:50 "My argument is that the sun is not a deity...just because someone believes something it doesn't make it true"
- 14:05 "We could take the argument that the Egyptians believed the sun was a deity & that all things come from it & I would argue that - No, scientists now say that the sun is a dying star"
- 14:18 Acharya responds "I don't really engage in judging the Egyptians & dismissing their entire culture by whether or not they were correct in their perception of reality ... I appreciate the beauty of what they created ... & not be culturally biased...
- 14:40 "I would never do that - I'm not implying that the Egyptian culture is wrong & we need to disregard it"
- 22:45 I saw your videos
23:48 Acharya "If anything Christ would symbolize something kind & loving but there's a problem with that too because that's not exactly what we find in the NT either..."
25:13 Acharya "The word is "Miso" & it does mean to hate in the ancient Greek text"
27:10 "I find all human culture interesting ...I don't raise this up as sacred & that not... sacred meal in Greece, in Egypt"
- Says he has Satanist friends

- 51 virgin
- 52:05 Dec 25th
- 52:22 "There's no proof that he wasn't born ... the proof is on your end to prove that he wasn't born"
- 52:30 Acharya "I'm not the one making absurd claims - I'm not claiming a Jewish guy was the son of god who was raising people from the dead..."
- 52:43 "I don't think that's absurd...now see that's what I find offensive"
- 52:52 "When you say 'absurd' that's what I find offensive because I haven't said that what you believe is absurd but yet you've taken the liberty to say my beliefs are absurd"
- the hang-up 54:07
- 54:10 "I find this woman repulsive. I find her absurd"
- 55 "We don't have a virgin mother having sex w/ a dead body"
- 55:13 "these people"
- 56:30 "Zeitgeist"
- 56:52 "I never once said that your arguments or your beliefs are absurd ...
- 57:15 "Acharya, your last words when you die are going to be, oh god"
- 57:25 "I don't worship the sun, a gas ball"
- 58:35 "the true story of Mithra"
- 1:00 "that's why I hung-up on her"
- 1;08 "I'm so angry...Don't call my religious views absurd"
- 1;09:22 "Not because of some astrology CRAP"
- 1;11;39 "I'm so ticked-off right now"
- 1:14:34 "And for the people who created this damn Zeitgeist bullshit video..."
- 1:19:45 "Let me just say to you people ... Acharya & Zeitgeist & whoever the hell is involved in this movie... don't you ever come to me & spill that kind of shit in my face because I will smack the spit out of your mouth."
- 1;20;22 "So don't you sit there & talk crap cause you want to sell a book or because you want to sell a movie...so you sons a bitches SHUT YOUR MOUTH"
- 1;21;20 "And don't worship the sun because it's up your ASS"
- 1;22;37 "I swear to god, if you do it god is going to smite you down...Every American should kick your ass up & down the street"
- 1;25:00 "We just destroyed & debunked all the ridiculous theories of mythos & mythical creatures & all that other nonsense about Christianity stealing all these ya know it just & the of course that movie what is it called? um, Zeitgeist & other ridiculous stuff about how all these conspiracy theories just, ya know..."
The Anti-Zeitgeist and Anti-Acharya rant continues through to the 1;30. Don't waste your time after that.
No, Bishop James Long is not biased, bigoted or a fundamentalist - keep moving along nothing to see here. Pay no attention to the ranting lunatic.
Let them know how you feel about their treatment of Acharya -
