Pastor Fred Phelps

When I heard the promo for the news, that plans were in the works to picket the funerals of the 19 firefighters who died near Prescott, Arizona I didn’t even have to guess who those picketers might be.  Who else routinely pickets funerals but the Westboro Baptist Church institution for the criminally insane.  Fortunately, or unfortunately for Phelps, Arizona said we’re not going to stand for that bullshit.

Pastor Fred Phelps, the head lunatic, has somehow either found a group of equally delusional followers or has managed to brainwash his flock into making funeral picketing their hobby.  I think the man doth protest too much.   Perhaps there is an underlying fear (or knowledge) within Phelps that he is or may be gay.  I’m sick of these people disrupting funerals and it is my sincere hope that a meteor falls on that church and that Phelps lives only long enough to see the funerals of his church members being picketed.  In the meantime somebody ought to out Phelps since he’s too much of a weenie to admit to and embrace who he really is.  So what the hell…pass it on.

Your god is a psychopath with a twisted sense of humor

Derech Etz Chaim Simchas Torah Dancing 5768

Image via Wikipedia

Recently I was told about a sect of orthodox Jews, who on a holiday called Simchas Torah, get drunk, dance around, and do somersaults.  Only men are allowed to dance and somersault.  I don’t know what the women are doing while their guys are enjoying all the fun.  I imagine them on the sidelines, as in the Olympics, holding up scorecards rating the somersaults (extra points if they stick the landing).  I believe this might be the origin of the phrase holy rollers.  I did a little research and it seems not all members of this particular sect participate in the drunken somersaulting, but it is not uncommon.  Please explain how performing acrobatics, while under the influence, serves one’s god?  And has anyone ever been arrested for AUI?

What Happens on Simchas Torah STAYS in Simchas Torah!

(Unless, of course, you blog about it.)

Each year, the Torah is completed and started anew – Simchas Torah celebrates that. The festival includes dancing, flag-waving, and copious drinking by the menfolk. In Chabad circles, there’s a Simchas Torah tradition to “mach a kula.” You haven’t seen anything in life until you see a drunk chossid do a somersault. On second thought…   (read more at Fancy Schmancy Anxiety Maven)

As is almost always the case one thing leads to another, and I wondered about other religious practices and what possible purpose could be served by them.  I keep coming up with the same conclusion:  god (or god’s inventor) is a  megalomaniac with a sick and twisted sense of humor.

Imagine if you didn’t buy the god delusion or belong to any religious group and were instructed to do things such as; cut off the tips of all male children’s penises, engage in symbolic ritualistic cannibalism (taking communion), when, where and how to engage in sexual intercourse, avoid types of foods, or avoid eating certain foods together, how to dress, stick ashes on your forehead, tell your deepest darkest secrets to a hidden stranger, give a percentage of your income (in addition to what the IRS already takes)…I think the answer would be WHAAAAT?

There are now and have been power happy cult leaders among us who have engaged in mind control to the point where their followers believed they were serving a greater good by giving up, to and for their leaders, things ranging from all their worldly goods, money, friends and family, to their lives.  Cult leaders get off on watching people engage in all manner of insanity at their behest.  Your illusory god is doing the same thing on a grander scale for his/her/its amusement.  Along with the ridiculous rules god has set forth to retain membership, you are forced to deal with wars, tragedy, plagues and pestilence.  On the plus side you really must admire the management and multi-tasking skills involved in such an undertaking.

Several years ago I wrote a short post, that caused a long stir called God did Not Create Man, the premise being the reverse.  It would seem I am not alone.  From the Los Angeles Times:

Science and religion: God didn’t make man; man made gods
Op-Ed
In recent years scientists specializing in the mind have begun to unravel religion’s “DNA.”

July 18, 2011|By J. Anderson Thomson and Clare Aukofer

Before John Lennon imagined “living life in peace,” he conjured “no heaven … / no hell below us …/ and no religion too.”

No religion: What was Lennon summoning? For starters, a world without “divine” messengers, like Osama bin Laden, sparking violence. A world where mistakes, like the avoidable loss of life in Hurricane Katrina, would be rectified rather than chalked up to “God’s will.” Where politicians no longer compete to prove who believes more strongly in the irrational and untenable. Where critical thinking is an ideal. In short, a world that makes sense.

In recent years scientists specializing in the mind have begun to unravel religion’s “DNA.” They have produced robust theories, backed by empirical evidence (including “imaging” studies of the brain at work), that support the conclusion that it was humans who created God, not the other way around. And the better we understand the science, the closer we can come to “no heaven … no hell … and no religion too.” to keep reading (definitely worth the time)

Pastor Mike’s atheist registry – shades of Nazi Germany

Putting Atheists on a “National Registry” – What Say YOU? by Pastor Mike   This made me physically sick when I read it.  Here is yet another illustration of good christian love and tolerance for one’s fellow-man.

Pastor Mike lists his reasons (as if there would be any good ones) for wanting to create his atheist registry, but the subtext, as I read it, is to make atheists easy to spot should one feel the pressing need to commit a hate crime.  I assume that in Pastor Mike’s twisted fantasy world, atheists would be issued an identifying arm band upon registration.  What’s next, Pastor Mike, free train rides for atheists?  Pastor Mike, you are one twisted motherfucker.

Why do many atheists hold a hatred toward a creator they say doesn’t exist? How can you hate something you claim doesn’t exist?
“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” ( Matt. 12:34 )

Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..

This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists . For example , let’s say you live in Colorado Springs , Colorado , you could simply scroll down ( from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ) . The individual’s physical address , and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed ( though , perhaps a photo could be ) .

Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public ! I mean , in the City of Miramar , Florida , where I live , the population is approx. 109,000 . My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists ! Perhaps we may actually know some . In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism . Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan .

Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves ( unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’ ) .

Anyway , my brothers and sisters , it’s something I would like to get your input on , as well as any other ideas or suggestions you may have along these lines . As Christians ,we CAN make a difference if we network together in fellowship , as well as seek guidance and advice from the Holy Spirit .

Until next time , may God bless and keep you all –

Yours in Christ ; Pastor Mike

Here a Jesus, there a Jesus, everywhere a Jesus

Praise the lord those people didn’t accidentally eat the Cheeto Jesus (or you might have just watched a video about an orange turd that looked like Jesus).  Daddy must have been watching over his only begotten son that day, though I’m wondering where good old dad was when they were covering little Jesus with that yucky orange cheese-like substance and sealing him into an airtight plastic bag.

Every few months or so someone finds the image of Jesus in their tortilla, cheese sandwich, car window, navel lint, and I’m sure somewhere on the net is a list of all of the other strange places the image of Jesus has appeared.  I’m always amused that people attribute some sort of religious miracle status to these items by paying absurd amounts of money to buy them on eBay, or offering money to file past the sacred tortilla in someone’s kitchen.

Here’s the thing, I look at grainy wood, floor tiles, the texture on the ceiling, and see images of all kinds of things.  So far no Jesus, but just as soon as one shows up I’m getting the toolbox and selling the tile, chunk of ceiling, or whatever happens to contain the sacred image, to the highest sucker bidder.
