Children of God: Sex cult extract of Zealot by Jo Thornely

Another wacky-doodle sex cult. Based on the bible of course. Totally unforeseen by the almighty when he wrote his holy book.

It is so clear that everything was shaped by the cult leader’s own desires and biases. Every commandment was for the gratification of the cult leader. Only, as with all religions, these are ascribed to an invisible and absent god. Which somehow legitimizes the behaviours and removes them from scrutiny and criticism.

Kim Davis may have to pay $225k for denying gay couples marriage licenses

The buck stops with her. Regardless of her personal interpretation of her god’s will.

Good to see the rule of law prevailing. A little late. But better than never.

Shocking video shows pastor beating followers of South Korean cult

Another Christian cult “following” the teachings of the Bible, and beating the sin out of their sheep.

Why is the word of a perfect god so easily and frequently perverted by crazy people?

The women who sleep with a stranger to save their marriage – BBC News

It would seem that only religious belief can make people do stupid shit and open themselves to being exploited.

How do you draw the line between constructive life-supporting beliefs and destructive brainwashing?

If there is a god who allows terrible things to be done in his name, why is he deserving of worship?

Oklahoma Republican Declares That Rape Is The ‘Will Of God’

Faught … stated that rape and incest are God’s will because God is sovereign over all activities that happen.

Well, he is technically correct. If you believe god is all-knowing all-powerful then everything that happens must be according to his will.

Or he doesn’t care enough to intervene.

(And no, such a god does not permit free will. Because he already knows everything you are going to do. And in any case, there is no free will if you will face eternal damnation should you choose wrongly.)

My Evangelical Church Is Gaslighting Me, But I Refuse To Fall For It Anymore

This is one perspective from inside American evangelicalism we don’t often see.

It is not an easy read.

And I can imagine it would have been even harder for the author to live through.
