The Religion Thread

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

A Megachurch (evangelical Presbyterian) Reels After Learning Pastor Let His Professed Pedophile Son Work With Kids (for 1.5 years)

Lots of sordid details, though no actual child abuse has been alleged yet. The only hero is:
... Some members have also been upset over how the board’s chairwoman attempted to discredit the whistleblower, Daniel Lavery, a trans writer and Ortberg’s estranged (other) son, who has broken from his family’s conservative evangelical faith....
Wow.

An interesting article about how human evolution may be evident in certain modern humans. This is something the religious fanatics will be sure to announce themselves victims of as well as somehow a threat to their religion but as usual will be relegated to the immense pile of shit they are already victims of.

They can't really know that there was only 1 infected person at the service, but still . . .
Nearly 100 people in Ohio got sick after one man infected with the coronavirus attended a church service

... A number of churches have caught headlines after large chunks of their parishioners caught the coronavirus.

In March, 35 people at a church in Arkansas caught COVID-19 after attending a service. Three of them later died of the virus.

In May, 107 people tested positive for coronavirus after attending a church service in Frankfurt, Germany.

In June, 236 people in Oregon got the coronavirus after a church held multiple services during lockdown.

During the early months of the pandemic, a secretive doomsday church in South Korea was accused of accelerating the outbreak in the city of Daegu. The city is now suing the church for endangering lives.
Seems like they're doing Satan's work to me, but what do I know?

So do these people really believe that a group of 100 business people at conference or a group of 100 concert fans in an auditorium is a covid risk but a group of 100 at a church is not? If so, do that believe that safety applies to mosques and synagogues as well as all mainstream and fringe ummm, "Christian" churches? Or just theirs?

I think they should use the same logic for other dangers, like hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, floods, etc. Tell them that you're requiring everybody else to evacuate immediately, but because they're a church they can just stay put and keep on singing.

That would be so perfect seeing those "Christians" being swept up into the air and carried away on the winds singly and in groups. They'd love it.

... The announcement comes after Falwell, a top evangelical Christian personality in the U.S., shared ― and then deleted ― a photo on Instagram in which his pants were unbuttoned and unzipped....
After all the hateful things he's done it's a little annoying that he gets ousted over a post with Peg Bundy from a stupid theme party.

Teenager in Pakistan hailed as holy warrior for shooting and killing a US man accused of blasphemy. The right wing nutjobs of the religious right here in the US only wish they could get away with this type of thing. It would serve as affirmation that they are, in fact, victims, as they incessantly screech about.
