Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

"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 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 flourished under his command, until he passed the staff to Shy around 2016.

Shy, the fourth administrator, managed the site with great efficiency, but because of burnout and manic depression, in 2019 he recruited Pryo as webmaster, who helped the site by moving to a better hosting service. As of 2020, they both still manage the site, along with a team of moderators. keeping material that goes back to the earliests incarnations of the site

At first glance, the site seems to mock conservative Christians exclusively, but it only seems that way because they tend to be the loudest and, as they put in their FAQ, fundies of other religions doesn't usually post in English (but when they do, they end in the site eventually]. 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.
