FTBers Worth Reading

A Voice of Reason’s Al Stefanelli knocks one out of the park with Scaring Your Kids Into Religious Intolerance.

He starts with this quote:

Most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches. I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats – Kimberly Daniels (700 Club)

That is just a fucking lie. If you EVER have doubts about what religion is, what it tolerates, how it operates, that one statement right there is a total eye-opener.

Remember how I wrote in The Fate of Broken People – Part 2 about what I called “the 180-degrees thing”? How things can seem one way, but turn out to be so far in the other direction that they become not just opposite, but anti whatever the issue is?

It is 180 degrees opposite of what it should be. If it’s something that was right with the world, it is now wrong – so wrong it doesn’t just sit there being wrong, it moves at light speed in the direction of wrong, so that it becomes not just un-right, but anti-right.

This is one of the most fantastic realizations of that principle. A super-religious person lying out her ass. Totally just making shit up.

About something that it isn’t even worth lying about. Stupid, vicious, lying … crap, I can’t even find words to describe how vile I think this person is.

And the funny thing is, she’s too much even for the Christian site where her words are posted. The editor of the site  backs away from her supreme weirdness by prefacing her lengthy and fantastic article with this:

We realize that the article by Kimberly Daniels is controversial. It reflects her own personal views—based on her many years of ministering to people involved in the occult.

Uh, yeah.

    Thanks for the link, I see she is still parroting the batshit insane satanic ritual abuse memes:
    The word “occult” means “secret.” The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
    Sex with demons
    Orgies between animals and humans
    Animal and human sacrifices
    Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
    Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
    Revel nights
    Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
    Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.

    Those are pretty descriptive words.

    I know that there are several versions of the 10 commandments but when I read the one about lying the commandment is a bit vague. The prohibition is against bearing false witness against one’s neighbor. This would be in some formal situation by my reading. There is no prohibition against regular day to day lying. If one is doing it for Jeebus than anything goes. With the Bible as their moral guide, aren’t we expecting a lot of Christians by expecting them to be truthful?

    I’m sorry, I’ve got to adjust my watch. I thought we’d slipped into the middle ages for a while there.

    When I hear lunatics like her making up crap about witchcraft, I think she would have been right at home in this courtroom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAFVALRWDyk
