Just a reminder that while religions teach that demons are real, people with real mental problems believe they communicate with demons. An organization legitimizing these delusions helps no one.
This fucker who cost his followers their life savings being a divisive cult leader and preying on the superstitious is wormfood. I hope I get the opportunity to piss on his grave.
'Love the sinner, hate the sin' is a shield of bullshit employed mainly by Christians to bridge the gap between their supposed love and tolerance and their judgmental, manipulative Bible.
From Pat Robertson’s predictions to the entire Christian right freaking out about gay marriage, it never ends
Article gives a lot more details, but here’s the skinny:
1) Mitt Romney would win in 2012 and go on to be a two-term president.
2) If Obama wins in 2008, the Bible will be classified as “hate speech” and banned from the airwaves.
3) Making emergency contraception available without a prescription will cause “sex-based cults.”
4) Legal gay marriage will lead to legalized parent-child marriages.
5) RFID microchips, the Mark of the Beast, will be implanted in all Americans on March 23, 2013.
6) If the Supreme Court upholds Obamacare, death panels will subject unproductive old people to execution.
7) If Obama wins in 2012, conservative Christians will basically lose their right to vote and other freedoms.
8) Sharia law!
9) The military will courtmartial Christian soldiers who don’t hide their beliefs.
10) Obama will rise up and take over the world for Satan, triggering Armageddon and the return of Jesus Christ.
I guess a few of these could still happen. I mean, obviously they never will because they’re delusional fantasies, but just sayin’, Obama still has time to usher in Satan and trigger a Bruce Willis space movie.
For all its affirmation of little girlsâ intelligence and humor, it’s hard to get past the mixed messages inÂ Secret Keeper Girl’s modesty doctrine: We shouldnât care about how the world perceives us, unless we’re talking about our clothing, in which case that’s the only thing that matters.
What followed was a rapidfire round of “Truth or Bare” tests for whether or not one’s clothing is showing too much skin. “God wants nothing of how we dress to distract from the good things we are doing for Him,” Smith said.
Instead of wearing short skirts like the “mean girls” at school, the Christian girl puts on leggings or wears pants. In the “raise and praise” test, the young girl’s belly should not show when she raises her hands above her head to praise God; if it does, she needs to go to the boys’ clothing section and get a long tank top to layer. And if you put your hand palm down on your chest under your collarbone, you should only have shirt showing below your pinky finger.
When Smith asked the crowd, “Is it ever OK for a Secret Keeper Girl to wear a low-cut top?” the crowd said “NO!”
I’m fascinated by the idea that once Christian church groups fought so hard against the idea of a woman wearing pants and now they fight so hard to convince women to wear pants and yet they don’t see their beliefs as wavering toward the directions of conservative social norms.
George W. Bush is drawing criticism for speaking at a fundraising event for a group of Messianic Jewish group in Texas, but anyone who actually knows the president’s faith shouldn’t be surprised.
"Bush … is helping to raise money for a group whose reason for being is to stop there being Jews. It sounds alarmist, but there it is. Success for the group Bush supports would mean no more Jews."
This fuckin’ guy is just everything awful in the world rolled into one ugly fuck.

Tom Cruise has admitted that Katie Holmes filed for divorce in part because of his involvement in the controversial Church of Scientology.
During his deposition, first obtained by RadarOnline, for his $50 million defamation case against Bauer media (whose magazines claimed he abandoned his daughter Suri Cruise), the 51-year-old actor first exploded with anger when asked if Holmes left him “in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”
Cruise first responded that he found the question “offensive,” saying, "there is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.” But when lawyers pushed the question again, asking if his ex-wife ever indicated that she left because of the religion or because she wanted to protect their daughter from Scientology, Cruise responded:
"Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes."
Even though it’s Tom Cruise saying it, it still blows me away anyone would consider Scientology a religion. Because it’s just so, so obvious what it actually is. At least every other religion has a more convincing mystical element to its scam.
By the way, you’ll be relieved to know:
