New Zealand Church Has a “Bleach-Based” Cure for Ebola; Experts Say It’s Potentially Fatal

What is up with New Zealand? Despite more than 39% of its population professing no religion, the promotion of bullshit seems like it’s at an all-time high.

Earlier this year, we learned of a church selling olive oil as a cure for everything, from mental illness to marital woes.

Now, a different church is promising to cure everything, including Ebola, with a “bleach-based solution that medical experts have slammed as being potentially fatal.”

Pakistani Mob of Thousands Tortures Christian Couple to Death For Allegedly Burning Pages From the Qur’an

Good thing they have a holy book to tell them what’s moral. Imagine how these people might behave without Allah’s divine guidance.

An enraged Muslim mob beat a Christian couple to death and burnt their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked on Tuesday for allegedly desecrating pages of the Holy Qur’an. …

Sources privy to the details of the incident told Pakistan Today that Shahzad Masih and his wife Shama worked in a brick kiln owned by a man named Yousaf Gujjar since the last 3-4 years. “The couple were originally from Clarkabad, a Christian village a few kilometeres away from Raiwind but they had been working at Yousaf Gujjar’s brick kiln for the last 3-4 years and were living in a quarter in the premises,” a relative of the deceased couple told Pakistan Today on the condition of anonymity.

The board had the options of selling the building to the city (for much less than it’s worth), demolishing the building, or selling it to the Monroe First Church of God for (literally) a buck.

And they were leaning toward that last option, possibly because board member Tim Carpenter (below) is a member of that church…
