The Satan-selling con-men are boring. Their Satan-buying audience is fascinating.

Selling

I read Sarah Zagorski’s article on Zachary King at LifeNew.com and I am, frankly, bored by Zack King. But I am fascinated by Zagorski, and by her bosses at LifeNews.com, and by the huge audience of “pro-lifers” who create the demand-driven market for clichéd con-men like Zack King. King is only telling Zagorski and her audience what they want to hear. And what they want to hear — what they want, they desire, they wish for and hope for — is a horror story. [Read more...]

Back to the ’80s: ‘I Performed Satanic Rituals Inside Abortion Clinics’ says ‘former Satanist’ at LifeNews.com

Reparative therapy has helped Zack King to become an EX-Satanic-baby-killer.

Huge, if true: “Just after I turned 14, the coven members came to me and said that I was going to be involved in an abortion in about nine months. There was a sex party with all the male members between 12 and 15 and a female member over 18 and her purpose was to get pregnant, and then she was going to have an abortion in nine months.” [Read more...]

Teavangelical lawmakers reveal their affair in worst way possible

Braintrust

Everything about this scheme was poorly thought-out and then poorly executed — it’s like the plot of a darkly humorous Cohen brothers movie. Particularly hilarious is Courser and Gamrat’s weird certainty that faking a gay prostitution scandal would surely eclipse concern about their plain-vanilla adultery. They seem to imagine that everyone views the world the same way they do — imagining that everyone thinks gay secks is the Worst Possible Thing Ever. [Read more...]

Triple murder: ‘Ritualistic Presbyterian killing planned to coincide with the Blue Moon’

MulderWitch22

There was absolutely nothing about this crime scene that should have made any police officer or journalist imagine that this crime had anything to do with Presbyterianism at all. That’s just a nonsense claim fabricated out of whole cloth by a panicked sheriff who seems utterly ignorant about Presbyterianism and Presbyterians. [Read more...]

Something happened and now I know

Touching

They were probably really excited when they came up with the name “Touch ‘Em All Ministries.” It spells TEAM — a terrific acronym for a sports-related ministry. It suggests home-run success and conveys their passion for the Great Commission. Alas, being innocent as doves but not wise as serpents, it didn’t occur to these good people that the name might also have other connotations. [Read more...]

Rusty Houser hated women. He learned that at church.

Houser

I’m talking about the more fundamental teaching of John Russell Houser’s Southern Baptist church — the paramount religious and ethical teaching of that denomination, which says that women cannot and must not be trusted. Rusty Houser was shaped by a faith tradition that does not abide any question or challenge to its official required stance of legal and political opposition to abortion. His church taught him that women are immoral and untrustworthy, and — like Paul Hill and Scott Roeder — he took that teaching to heart. [Read more...]

Satanic baby-killers are putting dead babies in Pepsi!

MulderPepsi

You can learn a lot on the Internet. Today, for example, I learned that Pepsi cola is made with “flavor enhancers” manufactured from the kidney cells of aborted fetuses. That Scary Story was thoroughly debunked several years ago, but it resurfaced this week thanks to a more recent Scary Story based on the latest “secret video” produced by a friend of disgraced activist James O’Keefe.

It’s not gullibility; it’s malice. (C.S. Lewis is right and Ed Stetzer is wrong.)

MulderPG715

Gullibility is a kind of innocence — an honest mistake. But gullibility is not the problem. Gullible people are relieved and happy to learn that some fake-news Scary Story isn’t actually true. But when those spreading such stories are disappointed, or defensive, or angry to learn they aren’t true, then we know that gullibility had nothing to do with it. [Read more...]
