Behold the Christian Taliban

Washington state Rep. Matt Shea has published a Christian manifesto calling for the execution of all males who refuse to follow “Biblical law.”

This proves again that extreme believers are crazy and cannot be trusted. And it also underlines the importance of freedom from religion in politics.

We see it again and again. Extreme believers cannot help themselves when they have power. They will seek to impose their religion on everyone else.

The irony fail is pathetic. The same Christians who hate the Muslim Taliban would themselves act the same way in the same situation.

John Chau: Slain missionary’s final hours with North Sentinel Island tribe

This US missionary believed he had to convert a reclusive culture to his religion, was repeatedly told to go away, ignored all the warnings, and is now dead.

Such arrogance. Such a waste of a life. Clearly his allegedly all-powerful all-knowing god had a mysterious, tragic, and somehow loving plan – go figure.

The parents are asking authorities to leave those responsible alone, and to let the arrested fishermen (who ferried the missionary to the island) go free.

I really hope this tragedy ends here and everyone is just left alone in peace.

Only Gays engage in Anal & Oral Sex

[Christian extremist Linda] Harvey, president of Mission America, a radical anti-LGBT conservative Christian organization, argues that straight people don’t engage in oral or anal sex

Because teaching children about the reality and diversity of sexual practices, so they can be informed and play safely, is all part of some gay agenda.

Someone had better tell PornHub et al to remove those heterosexual anal and oral sex videos. Cos no one is watching them. Except maybe Linda.

God Healed Private Jet

Godly snakeoil salesman Kenneth Copeland laid hands on one of his private jets and healed it of rust.

“People are dying of cancer, but God heals corrosion on planes.”

Praise Jeebus who fixed a con man’s luxury toy while millions die in desperation? I don’t think so.

US Law Allows Child Marriage

Legal-marriage-age-world.jpeg

The far right christians in the US love to paint themselves as self-righteous and moral far above everyone else. They love to judge and condemn others from their “family values” platform.

People who sit on hollow rickety platforms should not cast judgements. Look at the map above – the US and Saudi Arabic are the only two nations worldwide that allow children as young as 9 to be married. 9!

If we look at US states below, the majority of US states have no age floor on marriage. In these states, you could legally marry a baby. And unsurprisingly most of these are in the bible belt, where “think of the children” is often heard. Doesn’t this put a creepy spin on the phrase.
