Once again the right-wing religious deliver a stream of utterly bizarre and truly weird claims and declarations during the last week. Each and every week it is like this, and no doubt it will continue to be like this.
This spotlight is not a criticism of people for being religious, but rather is an opportunity to laugh at the utter lunacy that emerges from that rather unique blend of right-wing politics and religion. It inspires a passionate rejection of facts and reality, and instead replaces it all with an embrace of a fantasy that is fueled by paranoia, conspiracy thinking, and deep seated insecurity.
What popped up during the last 7 days?
Racism is alive and thriving …
(If your stance is one that involves objecting to people condemning racists, then you are basically self-certifying that you are the fundamental problem)
The Supreme Court is once again a focus for some …
(The fact that some are seriously “praying” for God to kill somebody tells you a great deal about their moral bankruptcy)
What causes a wildfire?
(We might laugh at primitive people thinking that their actions caused the gods to be angry and that causes storms and earthquakes … but hey, here is this idea still alive and kicking in 2019)
(His argument against her is not her policy ideas, nor her words or actions, but that there are supposedly witches and demons in her district)
- Gov. Kevin Stitt Plans to Use His Office to Align ‘With What God Is Doing in Oklahoma’…”We are God’s kingdom here on earth,” she said. “It is our call to go out into our state and save people and bring people to him“
- TN Gov-Elect Bill Lee Is Selling Special Seats for His Inaugural Worship Service…
(You have to wonder if those that voted for them realise that they are treating their electoral offices as a pulpit to preach from)
Weird Signs …
- Charlie Shamp: Pete Rose Will Enter The Hall of Fame as a Sign of Christ’s Imminent Return…
- Charlie Shamp: The Release of Andrew Brunson Is a Sign That God Will Destroy the Opioid Crisis in America
(What is actually a sign is that anybody believing any of this is deeply gullible)
Weird Actions …
Florida Man Drives Car Into Lake Because Jesus Told Him To…”“Jesus made me the smartest man on Earth, and it’s so hard to have this much responsibility.”
(You might speculate that this involved either drugs or alcohol, but police found neither in his system)
(Yes indeed, as it says in the Republican bible, “Blessed are those that tell the stranger seeking help to f**k off”)
