    Listened to two older men in the train for 20min yesterday and I was 100% convinced they were talking about business. In the end it turns out they were talking about their church... Max Weber was really onto something.

    I had to unfollow Doreen Virtue. She is honestly so judgmental. I have no idea what happened to her. But I wrote her a personal comment regarding her blatant misunderstanding of who Christ is and what He represents.

    According to His riches and glory

    According to His riches and glory

    “Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress. Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. Indeed I have…

    My biggest pain irl is to be dead curious and open about everything while I am introverted, socially awkward and still unconsciously restricted from my evangelical upbringing at the same time.

    Don't you think that if there really is a God, he would say you can go to heaven because you believed in Jesus when you are the person who caused people to leave God? That they have to spend eternity in h*ll because of you and you can relax in heaven? Don't you think the just God won't be just to you?

    But please don't live in fear, it causes a ton for someone to leave and just because you made one or a few more mistake(s) to them they don't leave if they really want to be a Christian, I would say. This refers more to the people who were ab*sive or bull*ying. When you were indoctrinated to do so and/or you have thought that's normal and ok, it isn't ok and normal and should not be, I think. You have a chance to leave this ab*sive surroundings, doesn't mean you have to leave God. You don't have to do what others told you to do and especially you don't have to think what others think, you can. And you can decide now if you want to do and think so.

    If I’m forced to carry a baby to term that bitch is getting left in the wild for the coyotes so might as well kill it while it can’t experience fear.

    [gets a glimpse at evangelical parenting culture on instagram]

    #- HK #i would rather talk to any given evangelical about male headship than talk about parenting #that’s how now-niche my views are #and how committed to them i am #i think the chance ANY of y’all would agree with me on parenting are .2% #and the EASY part would be talking about parenting in church because literally nobody questions prevailing church practices regarding kids #so they would be caught off guard to hear my family’s take #mobile#x#Christianity#parenting #this is one of the best seinfeld scenes by the way

    the last exorcism (2010) would be more interesting if the main character was a catholic priest losing his faith and not a charismatic but it's outside of the box at least

    #the last exorcism #wikipedia says he's evangelical but the exorcisms and preaching style seem more charismatic to me

    There's a whole genre of post on here that I see way more often than I would like that's essentially, "[Christian interpretation of xyz] is actually completely wrong and stupid, it's actually [Jewish interpretation] which is of course completely correct." Like what are we doing here. Have we considered that these are actually two completely different faith traditions? Why are we surprised that they have maybe reached different conclusions on a few points?

    #like im pretty nonreligious but these posts always rub me the wrong way #and i find it very weird that i guess we're just going pretend that nobody ever has ever actually thought through christian theology? #i mean obviously it hasnt been around as long as judiasm but cmon #and thats not even getting into when the so called christian interpretation #is just blatantly from american protestant evangelicalism specifically #and any christian interpretation of the OT should be in the context of the gospels and NT existing #like OF COURSE its different from judaism

    Bart Hester- 2022 Update

    On this date in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” presented profiles of Arkansas State Senator Bart Hester, who represents District 1 in the state, was first elected in 2012 with a lot of help from funding from the Koch Brothers and their Americans for Prosperity SUPERPAC. But that, ironically, is not the alliance Hester maintains that draws our attention to him. You see, since he arrived on the political scene, Bart Hester has been a staunch ally of anti-LGBTQ groups in Arkansas, particularly the Duggar Family, and by extension, the Family Research Council. Back in November of 2014, the duo appeared together at an event in Little Rock scheduled to “protect same sex marriage” from those pesky gays, and protest a judge’s decision to overturn Arkansas’ same sex marriage ban. If you’re curious what Hester said, exactly, feel free to take a look at his rant against “homosexual marriage” on Youtube. Now, here’s where things get a bit hypocritical for Bart Hester… his boy, Josh Duggar, was protesting same sex marriage while cheating on his wife, which he in no way finds problematic. And in fact, when news broke that Josh Duggar had been investigated by Arkansas police back in 2006 for molesting five girls, the majority of whom were his own sisters… Bart Hester had an interesting reaction… he called for the police chief of Rock Springs to be fired for releasing the report. Never mind that the chief and his staff were simply complying with freedom of information laws and no laws were broken, Hester still thought that records release was a greater crime than the actual child molestation by his homophobic brother in arms. Which is pretty disgusting, really. But that’s not where Bart Hester’s revolting ideas end, by a long shot. In February of 2015, he sponsored a bill to try and prevent any individual municipality in Arkansas from passing civil rights protections unless the federal government already had them. While he named it the “Intrastate Commerce Improvement Act”, critics were quick to appropriately nicknamed it the “Right to Discriminate Bill”, and the big one that Bart Hester talked about, of course, was LGBTQ protections. As he put it, to have protections for sexual identity or sexual orientation would grant gays “special rights” that he doesn’t have, and he tried explaining that HE is the actual true victim of discrimination, claiming that HE is “singled out for being married to one woman”. It  was only a few weeks later that Hester sponsored Arkansas’ “Religious Freedom Restoration Act”, which yes, was one of those “religious freedom” laws that Republicans were pushing for at the state level around the country so that they could discriminate against LGBTQ citizens, and claim that preventing them from doing so was infringing upon their “deeply held faith” (which some will recall was also the argument used by some Southerners to argue why they should be able to discriminate against African Americans, once upon a time).

    Well, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson refused to sign the bill, afraid Arkansas would face similar repercussions like Indiana did after signing one into place, and Bart Hester was invited to go on CNN to be interviewed by Jake Tapper about it. During a four-minute interview, Hester did not seem smart enough to understand that his bill even allowed discrimination to take place, and Tapper didn’t let up on him… for four whole minutes of glorious journalism.

    Regrettably, Hester’s fanaticism is not limited to one issue. He’s also dedicated to stripping women of their right to choose, because it is his personal belief that life begins at conception. This would mean he not only believes all abortion is murder, but so are the majority of forms of birth control. And it’s not just talk, either, as Hester has sponsored fetal heartbeat bills that would effectively ban all abortion at 6 weeks.

    Now, surely, such a pious Christian man such as Bart Hester would apply his Christian values to aiding the poor, right? HA! Of course not. Since he’s taken office, he’s gone out of his way to sponsor or co-sponsor legislation to reduce unemployment benefits, pushed for the failed conservative policy of drug-testing welfare recipients not just once but twice, and even tried to raise taxes on food. Hester has argued against them having the private option for health insurance by claiming families of four make an average of $96,000 a year, live comfortably, and don’t need the help (which is amazing considering the actual number is $36,000. Hester was talking casually about being “in a game of chicken” in a funding shutdown in Arkansas that would leave funding for over 100,000 elderly citizens in nursing homes, over a thousand blind citizens, hundreds of thousands of underprivileged children, and tens of thousands of the disabled without financial support to just survive. I mean, the least egregious things we have to say about Bart Hester include his support of strict Voter ID registration to combat the statistically non-existent problem of in-person voter fraud.

    Bart Hester’s includes his fetish for firearms got really out of control in the past few years. Without realizing it, Hester voted for HB 1429 along with a lot of Arkansas Republicans, which would allow the concealed carry of firearms at bars, schools, and public universities. At some point, Hester and his fellow conservatives forgot that their wording of the bill would make it legal for people to bring guns into University of Arkansas football games with around 70,000 people present for potential mass shootings. Which, y'know, is a big security risk, and ironic because the stadium won't let people bring in umbrellas or blankets. Gov. Asa Hutchison had to veto the bill send them back to the drawing board to write a second bill to exempt the stadium, after the fact.

    Bart Hester managed to embarrass himself with a post on Twitter that led to a former Miss America from Arkansas turning up in his feed to serve him his own ass. It all started in February of 2018, when Hester was driving around town, and saw a billboard advertising for for University of Arkansas at Little Rock that featured a dancer on it, and promoting the university’s school of dance, in particular.

    Hester was suddenly possessed with the fury of the preacher played by John Lithgow in Footloose, and enraged by dancing, he got on Twitter and wrote:

    “Why higher ed does NOT need increase funding. They lease a sign to encourage computer science degrees or math teachers? No they push for dance majors. Lots of hardworking Arkansans subsidizing this! Not ok @UALR"

    Former Miss America Savvy Shields came along to talk some sense, responding, “I disagree with this on so many levels. As an artist and a dancer, I have seen the arts influence, inspire, challenge, and transform society. Art education is crucial in the advancement of Arkansas.” Then the University of Arkansas Little Rock responded that this was an entire ad campaign, and various billboards were up with each one depicting a different major the school offers. And then Microsoft executives came along to point out that as much focus should be placed on the arts as math and science in education, and that they not only hold that opinion, but their chief competitor at Apple, Steve Jobs, used to say the same prior to his passing.

    So… yeah, that backfired.

    And, in the current term so far, just in the past four months, he has supported some of the worst bills any legislature in the nation has submitted since being sworn back in:

    January 21st, 2021: Bart Hester sponsors the “Back the Blue Act”, which would prevent any government agency from defunding police departments in Arkansas, which, we’ll note, no one anywhere was trying to do anyway.

    February 3rd, 2021: Hester co-sponsors a bit of theocratic Covid-19 idiocy, HB 1211, to prohibit the state from closing churches due to Covid-19 emergency provisions (not that Gov. Asa Hutchison was doing much to stop the spread of the virus, anyway).

    February 22nd, 2021: Hester co-sponsors and votes for SB 6, to outlaw all abortions in the state.

    March 18th, 2021: Bart Hester co-sponsors and votes for SB 289, a bill to allow doctors to ignore their Hippocratic oath and deny healthcare “on the basis of religious principles”.

    March 31st, 2021: Hester votes for SB 590, which would supposedly “repeal all mask mandates by government entities”… except that any state law could not override a federal mandate… also, a pandemic is still going on, so maybe quashing things started in the name of public health is a bit ignorant, you know?

    April 6th, 2021: Bart Hester votes for HB 1570, a transphobic, overreaching bit of fascism aimed at denying minors any healthcare related to hormone therapy towards gender transitions.

    We’ve kept an eye on Bart Hester for five years, and surmised he was becoming emblematic of the dysfunction of Arkansas Republicans. That was so true, in fact, he has been named the next President Pro Tempore of the Arkansas State Senate, unopposed.

    Because f***ing of course.

    One of the biggest regrets of my life was being part of Christianity for so many years, nowadays I don't follow any religion and I feel free. Wasting my kindness and light on people who deserved to be punched in the face in the name of "good morals,religious doctrines and conservatism" and endured countless abuses in the name of religion was unbearable and damaged my entire life.

    In fact,all conservatism is nothing more than sexism and prejudice and the herd of pigs are extremely prejudiced and defend abuse and protect abusers. Besides the fact that these people are mostly wolves in sheep's clothing, I've met some people of character in this environment but this is something very rare, most are just an actor or actress pretending to be something they're not.

    And leaving this environment was the best choice of my life, I don't mean just Christianity but any stupid and toxic religion. It is within religions that the greatest scoundrels hide, because they know that inside they will have their "absolution" and support from the pigs.
