Weird Religious News – Martyrs for the cause of Stupidity


weirdScan for weird religious news that popped up within the news cycle last week, and the folks that naturally bubble to the surface are specifically the right-wing religious Trump supporters.

What you have is a complete and utter rejection of facts, evidence, and reality itself. Instead “Alternative facts” are promoted as “truth”.

In this case the divine has been inspired to incarnate and manifest as complete and utter stupidity.

What Happened during the past 7 days?

American Killed by Isolated Indian Tribe While Allegedly Trying to Convert Them

John Allen Chau got it into his completely thick brain that God was telling him to go preach to a completely isolated and very hostile remote tribe on India’s Andaman and Nicobar islands.

He was warned again and again and again that anybody and everybody who approaches them will be instantly killed. He believed that God would protect him so off he goes, lands on the beach. The first thing the tribesmen do the moment they see him is that they shoot arrows into him and kill him.

Tthis is utterly tragic, and yet it is also a monument to the utter stupidly that can be inspired when gripped by a religious delusion.

When you truly believe in magic, then you are setting yourself up for a smash into the hard wall of reality.

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that …

Seven fishermen have been arrested for illegally ferrying the American to the island, police say.

What happens next is that those that also deeply believe hail him as a martyr and a hero and not a daft idiot who did something utterly stupid. I wrote that last sentence without knowing, then googled it and yes, here it is. This is so damn predictable …

John Allen Chau, a Covenant Journey alumni, was martyred on November 17 by the Sentinelese tribal people on the island of North Sentinel. “When I heard the news of John’s death, I couldn’t believe it. I was numb. John loved people, and he loved Jesus. He was willing to give his life to share Jesus with the people on North Sentinel island,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Covenant Journey.
