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.

“A woman can go to Heaven, as long as she’s accompanied by a male relative” claims Saudi Imam

This surprising declaration is in complete rupture with the country’s traditional hard line, which states that woman can never be admitted into Heaven, under any circumstances.

So this makes She‎ikh Salah Al-Budair relatively more liberal and progressive, I guess.

Of course, women can never do enough for their men:

“Women are sinners by nature and, therefore, cannot be admitted in Allah’s kingdom. Of course, they should still live a devout life to help their sons and husbands go to Heaven.”

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.)

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.

Religion of Peace is a Matter of Interpretation

Clearly+a+religion+of+peace+explosionsplease+add+pictures+of+explosions_192f43_5357893.jpg

We have all seen blatantly ironic pictures like this. Islam is both a religion of peace and of violence. Both those claims are concurrently true. Everything boils down to how particular believers interpret the holy books.

And therein lies the risk inherent in any religion. The gods we invent seem universally incapable of communicating clearly and precisely. It can be said that the beauty of religious texts comes from their ambiguous flowery language, full of subtle shades and rich nuance, and thus open to wildly divergent interpretations.

Or these gods are callously capricious and care not for the suffering, death, destruction their imprecise words cause.

Or, applying Occam’s Razor, these gods simply do not exist.

‘How To Make Your Wife Submit To Your Authority’

ChurchandState.org said:

The post is not called “6 Ways To Be A Fabulous Husband,” or “How To Make Sure Your Wife Knows She Is Loved.”

No.

It is called “How To Make Your Wife Submit To Your Authority.”

Reading the actual post, I can’t shake the feeling of the underlying need to control others. I guess since god seeks to control and dominate us, it is not surprising that he would command the man of the house to control and dominate his possessions.

Why Would Any Woman be a Christian?

Dusty asks a bloody good question.

Religion makes people blind to reality, as well as to unquestioningly accept and faithfully perpetrate bad situations on others.
