Weird Religious Beliefs – The demonisation of migrants


weirdTraditionally belief is culturally associated with compassion, empathy, and a willingness to help. Many who do believe are inspired to be like that. However, those are values that the right-wing evangelicals have happily discarded and tossed under the bus. This is part of the price they pay in order to retain their allegiance to the utterly corrupt and dishonest Trump.

Actually, I’m being a tad unfair. Intolerance, xenophobia, misogyney, and general obnoxiousness, is an ancient religious recipe, is not new, and has always been there. Crack open any history book to find out. Trump did not create it, he simply granted it official permission to manifest itself in the public square.

What happened during the last 7 days?

The Trump cult devotees continued to worship their messiah …

Migrants continue to be demonised …

Banning the highly dangerous “Gay conversion therapy” provoked this reaction …

As a bit of comic relief, we also learned what happened to the dinosaurs (according to somebody whose only qualification is that he believes the bible is a 100% accurate science text)…

“you had little tiny dinosaurs on the Ark,” but they didn’t survive after the flood receded because all of the vegetation had been destroyed.”

(There are trees that are older then the age of the earth that this guy believe in)

Religious discrimination in also running rampant in some minds against anybody who has the wrong belief …

Trump supporting conspiracy theorist is very upset about her twitter ban …

“Now, I have theories as to why. They did not tell me which tweet triggered it. My number one theory is that I expose elite pedophiles, Twitter covers up for elite pedophiles”

(It was not just one of her batshit insane tweets they got her the boot, but rather lots of them, and it was not because she “expose elite pedophiles“, but because she was being an obnoxious twit on twitter).

We also got a claim that Human Rights conflict with Christian Beliefs …

This past week has seen the Catholic church officially refuse to take responsibility for the sexual abuse …

Finally, least you wonder, the US has not managed to successfully corner the market for religious stupidity …

Religious nutter of the week – Oklahoma Republican State Sen. Joseph Silk

Here is what happens when you vote for right-wing religious nuts …

OK Legislator Files Bill to Put Women in Jail for Life if They Have an Abortion

SB 13, the “Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act,” would give a fertilized egg all the same “rights, powers, privileges, justice and protections” as adult humans.

Which means if women have abortions — essentially, commit murder under this new bill — they could spend the rest of their lives in prison.

This comes via Oklahoma Republican State Sen. Joseph Silk.

Least you fail to grasp how utterly insane this is, let me follow up with this. It also means that a miscarriage would be manslaughter and that could also result in a jail sentence.

He tried this about 2 years ago and it failed then. Well, he is back, so here we go again.
