Weekly Weird News –

weirdAs I gaze across the religious right-wing landscape, I can’t help be wonder if there is sufficient material out there to make an entire career for multiple psychologists attempting to grapple with the outlandishly eccentric and quite delusional individuals that devote their lives to the promotion of the absurd and the bizarre.

The majority of humans are religious to one degree or another – this is not about them. Instead it is a weekly posting dedicated to throwing a spotlight upon that small faction who take belief to an entirely new place, one where reality is a far and distant land that is way over the horizon and firmly embedded in Narnia.

What Happened during the past week?

The religious right are still bowing down to worship their new messiah …

Trump quotes a prayer, but leaves out a rather telling bit about honesty …

Jim Bakker is as usual touting fear in order to con his gullible followers …

Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire is upset that he can’t use the N-word …

A conspiracy theorist dreamed up a conspiracy regarding the term “conspiracy theory” …

  • End Times author Paul McGuire says that the term “conspiracy theory” was invented by the intelligence community “as a mind control word” designed to stigmatize those who reveal the truth.

Almost two years after the election, promoting Hillary Clinton as vile and evil is still a popular talking point amongst the deeply delusional …

QAnon dreamers are dreaming dreams …

“Science” … the gateway to hell …

  • End Times pastor Paul Begley worries that scientists working at CERN are trying to open a portal to hell.

Bible is apparently only for White people …

Lying for Jesus is still popular …

… and of course there are claims that Women need to stay at home …

Finally let’s finish with this …

He was supposedly speaking in tongues to protect Trump from witches, but hey look it worked, no witches, or unicorns, or pink flying lions, so it much have worked. The real kicker here is that the bible explicitly says that it is a sign for those that do not believe. Those of us that do not believe actually do get it, and we can indeed read this sign. It very loudly proclaims “Here be a nutter”. For ref I wrote a posting a few years ago (see here) on speaking in tongues – spoiler alert, it is not supernatural.

The Highlight of the week

The Popes visit to Ireland resulted in 500,000 tickets being distributed and then only 130,000 turned up. The vast majority opted to not go as a silent protest against the abuse and coverup decade after decade.

Meanwhile in other Catholic related news during the past week…
