The Religion Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Supreme Court won't force states to speed up church reopenings
:happy-cheerleaderkid: :---P

Sorry, right-wing xtians, when you present a danger to the community you can, should and will be restricted. It's a shame that your "morals" don't include personal and collective responsibility.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Racism Won’t Stop Until We ‘Accept Jesus Christ’
Elected official says laws won’t solve the problem, only God.


Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Wednesday night claimed that the root of America’s racial problems was the lack of faith by “the left.”

Speaking after more than a week of demonstrations against the police killing of George Floyd, a Black man in Minneapolis, Patrick tried to pin the nation’s long and deep-rooted racial problems on people not being religious enough ― and more specifically, “the left” not accepting Jesus Christ.

Patrick said on Fox News that Floyd’s killing and the unrest breaks his heart and that it’s an issue of “loving God.”

“You cannot love your fellow man if you don’t love God,” he said. “And we have a country where we’ve been working really hard, particularly on the left, to kick God out.”

Patrick also said laws can’t fix racism, only Jesus and God can:
“You cannot change the culture of a country until you change the character of mankind. And you can’t change that unless you change the heart, and for billions of us on the planet, we believe you can’t do that unless you accept Jesus Christ or unless you accept God. God has been left out of this equation through all of this and we need tremendous healing. We cannot heal through commissions and blue-ribbon panels and more laws.”
Fox News host Shannon Bream agreed.

“The Bible tells us it’s not optional,” she said. “Love your neighbor as yourself.
:roll: :obscene-birdiered:

Riiiight lily white Danny and Shannon, it's the left's lack of faith that causes right-wing racism. Are you Commandment-level sinful liars or did your god not give you brains?
Patrick neglected to mention that while many use faith as a means to share a message of love and integration, others have done just the opposite. Religion ― including Christianity ― has been used to justify both racism and slavery.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the KKK and other white supremacist groups use the Bible and believe the book “is the family history of the white race.” Slate reported that the fires of Klan cross burnings “symbolize faith in Christ.” And the Bible was used historically to justify slavery in the United States.

Coronavirus: John Magufuli declares Tanzania free of Covid-19

Tanzania's President John Magufuli has declared the country "coronavirus-free" thanks to prayers by citizens.

"The corona disease has been eliminated thanks to God," Mr Magufuli told worshippers in a church in the capital, Dodoma....
:crazy:

"President Magufuli identifies himself as a devout Catholic" and Tanzania is majority Christian.

Tennessee Newspaper Slammed For Printing Ad Claiming 'Islam' Is Going To Nuke Nashville

The Tennessean ― the state’s most widely circulated daily newspaper ― is facing intense scrutiny after publishing an anti-Muslim ad in its Sunday print edition that claimed “Islam” planned to detonate a nuclear bomb in Nashville.

The full-page ad, paid for by what appears to be a Christian doomsday cult, featured a banner at the top that included images of President Donald Trump, Pope Francis and American flags engulfed in flames.

The Ministry of Future For America falsely asserted in its ad that the religion of Islam is going to blow up Nashville on July 18. The group claimed to know this based on “Bible prophecy” and called Trump the “final president of the USA.” ...
Crap, now I'll never see the Grand Ole Opry. :(

Shit pickles. I wonder if my sister had a hand in this; she lives near Nashville now. In any case, I have no doubt she believes it. A few years ago when my granddaughter joined Girl Scouts my sister advised my daughter that the Girl Scouts is a "subversive organization." That's how fucking loony she is. I've long since given up on trying to set her straight. I've never had the nerve to ask her how a white man (Jesus) was born in the Middle East from a native couple who never had sex. I'm sure she knows how this works, though.

Bleach will cure almost anything, just ask god or trump.

"the Grenons marketed it as not only a coronavirus cure but also a cure for cancer, autism, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and AIDS"

https://www.tampabay.com/news/health/20 ... -feds-say/

"they illegally sold a bleachlike chemical mixture as a miracle cure for the new coronavirus and other diseases, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

The substance marketed as Miracle Mineral Solution was sold nationwide through an entity called the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing in Bradenton, Florida"

“'We will NOT be participating in any of your UNCONSTITUTIONAL Orders, Summons, etc,” one email from Mark Grenon read. “Again and again I have written you all that . . . you have NO authority over our Church.'”

If you think bleach is a godsend, just imagine what the combination of bleach and duct tape would cure. Those two, along with a plastic Jesus bobblehead, will cure almost anything.

Bosnia Muslims mourn their dead 25 years after Srebrenica massacre

... On July 11, 1995, after capturing Srebrenica, Serb forces killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in a few days....

- Genocide label -

The episode -- labelled as genocide by two international courts -- came at the end of a 1992-1995 war between Bosnia's Croats, Muslims and Serbs that claimed some 100,000 lives.

So far, the remains of nearly 6,900 victims have been found and identified from more than 80 mass graves.

Bosnian Serb wartime military chief general Ratko Mladic, still revered as a hero by many Serbs, was sentenced to life in prison by a UN court in 2017 over war crimes including the Srebrenica genocide. He is awaiting the decision on his appeal.

Radovan Karadzic, a Bosnian Serb wartime political leader, was also sentenced to life in prison in The Hague.

The Srebrenica massacre is the only episode of the Bosnian conflict to be described as genocide by the international community.

And while for Bosnian Muslims recognising the scale of the atrocity is a necessity for lasting peace, for most Serbs -- leaders and laypeople in both Bosnia and Serbia -- the use of the word genocide remains unacceptable....

On Friday, the town's Serbian mayor Mladen Grujicic -- who was elected in 2016 after a campaign based on genocide denial -- said that "there is new evidence every day that denies the current presentation of everything that has happened".

Bosnian Serb political leader Milorad Dodik has also described the massacre as a "myth"....

Bakir Izetbegovic, leader of the main Bosnian Muslim political party, the SDA, and son of Alija Izetbegovic, the Bosnian president at the time of the conflict, called on the world to push back against the deniers.

"The international community did not defend Srebrenica 25 years ago, but it has the opportunity to defend the truth that is being challenged," Izetbegovic said.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday described the events 25 years ago as "the painful symbol of the international community's failure to protect civilian populations who had been most in need of its help".

While calling for reconciliation, he said there was "no place for negationism, historical revisionism or the glorification of war criminals," in a country which has expressed a wish to join the European Union....
Headline fix:

Bosnia Muslims mourn their dead 25 years after Srebrenica massacre by Christians, still the worst act of terrorism in Europe for many decades
