The Religion Thread

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

Well, I was subjected to yet another doomsday spiel from my favorite fake Christian Robert Jeffress and his Pathway to Victory bullshit today. His latest spiel is "an in depth study of the book of Revelation." I bet he'll have some big fun with this. Be the victim you always wanted to be. Amen
is he a neighbor or some tv person you subject yourself to watch?

Nope, if he were my neighbor, either he would be moving or I would. He is a self righteous Christian bigot and hypocrite who cleaves to trump like stink on shit and he has a tv show called "Pathway to Victory" that I am now and again assaulted by short promo spots for the next episode of his "we're all victims and we pray for the end times" mantra. These ads pop up without warning and typically send me into an extreme funk when I am suddenly confronted with them. They are just so over the top full of bullshit I feel obligated to comment on them and call out what a fascist con man Robert Jeffress is; he's just like trump but projects a benevolent sort of Christian fascism. I feel sure he will burn in hell. And so does he.

Try this, I was recently informed that it was stupid, but I like it. My opinion could have something to do with the crowd I was with, or the homegrown, or quite possibly the jar of mushrooms we opened. No preaching at all, plus what may be the greatest voice of many old westerns.

Baptist missionary work:
The Mask-Defying Church at Center of Disastrous Maine Wedding Linked to 3 Deaths, 144 Virus Cases

Maine’s biggest COVID-19 outbreak is linked to a wedding officiated by the pastor of a distancing-defying church who says masks are part of a “socialistic platform.” Now more than 144 COVID-19 patients have been linked to the event, and three people are dead.

Todd Bell is pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church in Sanford, Maine. Famous for flying between ministries in multiple states on his private plane (God “burdened” his heart to do airplane ministry, he says), Bell flew in to officiate a rural Maine wedding on August 7.

That wedding is the nexus of 144 COVID-19 cases, including three that resulted in deaths, Maine officials said Friday. One of the deceased, an 83-year-old woman, did not even attend the wedding, but contracted the virus from a guest. None of this appears to be stopping Bell from doing business as usual in his church, calling on worshippers to trust “God, not government” as the pandemic progresses.

The August 7 wedding in Millinocket, Maine was a super-spreader event. Sixty-five guests attended the event at the Big Moose Inn, a violation of the state’s limit on large gatherings. Officiated by Bell, the celebration went on to sicken guests, some of whom in turn passed it on to people in particularly vulnerable communities.

COVID-19 outbreaks at a local rehabilitation center, a senior living facility, a county jail, and a school have all been traced back to the wedding. The number of cases linked to the event has doubled in the past week....
Praise Jesus. :roll:

Fascinating, but I have sort of a visceral aversion to anything from Ukraine.....probably best thing is to send Rudy over there to sniff out the real story and bring back a couple of suitcases of virus evidence.

Pastor did exorcism on toddler and used meth with church members, Arkansas cops say

... Lloyd Eddie Lasker Jr., 49, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a gun by a convicted felon after police found him at a gas station in Mayflower on Sept. 22 with meth, the Conway Police Department said in an affidavit filed in Faulkner County Circuit Court.

Mayflower is a town of less than 2,000 people about 30 minutes north of Little Rock, according to the latest U.S. Census records.

The House of Refuge and Deliverance Ministries church, where Lasker is the pastor, is on a rural stretch of highway within the town’s city limits....

Priest Gets Caught Having a Threesome On The Altar Of His Church, Getting More Than Most of Us These Days

... In that moment, you decide to investigate, continuing towards the window to make sure everything is alright. Without warning, your eyes are bombarded with corsets, high heels, and sex toys -- your local priest is undeniably getting railed by two dominatrixes on the altar of his church. Nice. Shocked, you do what any rational person would do in this situation, whip out your phone and film the ordeal, sending your voyeuristic, amateur porno to the police for, uh, further inspection.

That's exactly what happened earlier this week, according to nola.com, when Reverend Travis Clark of Pear River, Louisiana' Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church was caught filming himself enjoying a gloriously kinky threesome with two dominatrixes on the altar of his parish. Although the police found that the act was consensual (as all sex should be), the priest and the two dominatrixes, including 41-year-old adult film actress Mindy Dixon, still face obscenity charges as they were technically in view of the public.

The day before, Dixon took to social media to tell her followers about her upcoming endeavor, posting that she was on her way to NoLa to "defile a house of God." And for those of you at home concerned about the altar, no need to worry -- the New Orleans archbishop performed a ritual to restore its sanctity, as apparently, that's a thing you can do....

And Trump is somehow different now than 3 years ago how? But I guess late is better than never, even if it is after more than 12% of people have voted.
