BIRTH CONTROL IS SINFUL!!

It seems that there are indeed worse things on this earth than Ray Comfort. I know, I was surprised too.

MS. ELIYZABETH YANNE STRONG-ANDERSON has written a masterpiece of typographical and intellectual offensiveness called BIRTH CONTROL IS SINFUL IN THE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGES and also ROBBING GOD OF PRIESTHOOD CHILDREN!!.

And to prove it is directed by the “HOLYSPIRIT,” it is written in all-caps, which we all know is his classic signature.

Here’s part of the author’s book description on this $135 monster of ignorance:

THIS IS A HOLYSPIRIT MANUSCRIPT BOOK: WHEN YOU BUY THIS BOOK YOU WILL BE READING A HOLYSPIRIT DIRECTED BOOK FROM GOD; & *CHRIST JESUS. THIS BOOK IS GODS HOLYSPIRIT VOICE: THE CALL FOR ALL CHRISTIANS & CHURCHES TO REPENT FROM ALL THEIR SINS: EVEN FROM FALSE CHRIST TEACHINGS. BIRTH CONTROL SINS HAVE CURSE THE CHURCH WITH SPIRITUAL WHOREDOM & FALSE WORSHIP. RESULTING IN THE PERSECUTIONS: AGAINST THE HOLY PEOPLE. THIS BOOK MAY BE REVISED: BECAUSE OF COMPUTER DICTATORS: MANY WORDS IN THIS BOOK: MADE HAVE BEEN CHANGED: TO>>DISCREDIT: THE AUTHOR. BUT IN TRUTH: I AM A HOLYSPIRIT CHOSEN ANOINTED DISCIPLE FOR GOD & CHRIST JESUS. EVEN FOR JEWS, MUSLIMS & GENTILE SINNERS. MANY PEOPLE WILL LEARN HOW TO> BECOME REAL BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN: THROUGH THIS HOLYSPIRIT BOOK & THROUGH THE PROTECTION & SUPPORT OF MY HOLYSPIRIT LIFE!!

For those who don’t want to pay the $135 fee to receive this revelation of God, it’s also available for free on Google Books.

Now please excuse me while I go tear my eyes out.

    Another reason why I despise all religions is because severely ignorant, stupid and unqualified people get to pontificate as if they have a credible argument about an invisible sky father. An invisible sky father no one has ever provided a single shred of evidence for.

    The author of the book is a bafoon.

    lol, one of the commenters said:

    I FEEL LIKE I’M IN TRADE CHAT IN WOW.

    There’s some great comments on this one.

  • Mrs. Grackle

    Seems to me you’re limiting who is able to receive the HOLYSPIRIT VOICE when you charge $135 for it. At least it was marked down from $150.

    I’m inclined to cry “Poe!” when I read the “customers who bought related items also bought” section.

  • claidheamh mor

    Augh! DizzGUSTing!

    And you’re right Daniel; that is worse than Ray Comfort.

    Being not only against abortion but against the birth control that prevents the need for it is insanity.

    As is being fruitful, multiplying,and squeezing out more babies to overrun the earth. At 6.8 billion of ’em, the planet hardly needs more of God’s children crawling on the face of it.

    Not that they ever connect overpopulation to traffic congestion, loss of habitat, deforestation, extinction, overcrowding stresses, air pollution, loss of farmland and green areas, paved-over land, endangered water quality, the high cost of food (gee, less place for it to live on and too many people eating it, go figure), overfished oceans, death of plankton and other ocean life, overstressed sewage systems, overstressed land fill, housing shortages, high cost of medical care, crime and hostility in traffic and cities because of overcrowding, competition, environmental toxins, city “growth” (but not “overpopulation”!), and urban sprawl.

    And Jesus just wants more children? Barf. Weird, how someone who is not sane can get credibility. WAY worse than even Ray Comfort.

  • Audrey

    I couldn’t help but try to read the preview. Let me capitalize my response:

    WTF???????????

    The author makes a compelling case for forced sterilization as an alternative to birth control.

    Why does the author look like an extra from The Cosby Show?

    Product Description:
    “THIS IS A HOLYSPIRIT MANUSCRIPT BOOK: WHEN YOU BUY THIS BOOK YOU WILL BE READING A HOLYSPIRIT DIRECTED BOOK FROM GOD; & *CHRIST JESUS. THIS BOOK IS GODS HOLYSPIRIT VOICE:”

    The Holy Spirit speaks in all caps! Maybe that is why I’ve had so much trouble understanding it.

    Did the Holy Spirit design the book cover too? I’m a graphic designer and I obviously don’t have the Holy Spirit in me.

  • Magdalena

    I’m likely in the minority on this, but I don’t really like this post.

    For one thing, I find it obnoxious when “our side” tries to call out Christianity or expose the excesses/irrationality of any religion by focusing on the people who would look (at the very least) a little silly even to most of their co-religionists. These people are basically straw men and there are plenty of them on the atheist side as well. I don’t think there’s anything to be learned about religion or skepticism by successfully pointing out that silly, possibly unbalanced people are silly and possibly unbalanced. Particularly given the fact that those people don’t usually have a large audience. I doubt there are really any followers to debunk this woman to. I would be surprised if she had any power within the Christian evangelical community. I’m all for mocking and satire…but I don’t think it makes any sense to direct that at individuals who aren’t public faces of anything, have no followers or audience, aren’t likely making any money, and would likely be mocked by co-religionists as well.

    In other words: Making light of the powerful and using that to expose how they use silly ideas to control or extort money from others = Great and funny.
    Mocking the powerless and possibly mentally unwell = Pointless and mean.

    The other thing that’s bugging me about this post is the way that, following as it does on the heels of the breakfast song video, it makes it look like Unreasonable Faith is throwing some kind of “Aren’t Black Evangelicals Extraordinarily Stupid?!” week. I’m sure that’s not the intention. But it definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

  • Mrs. Grackle

    Hey, we’re off the hook. Apparently, birth control is only sinful in THE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGES.

    I wish this book employed Amazon’s “look inside!” function. I’m picturing hundreds of badly photocopied, type-written pages all slightly crooked with some of them cut off in parts. And with a plastic spiral binding.

    This woman is not worse than Ray Comfort. Ray Comfort enjoys a wide audience, thanks to his TV spots. This woman is just clearly a nutjob no one will take seriously.

  • http://whyareyousofat.wordpress.com McBloggenstein

    Good stuff. I love that the book’s description is written so horribly. It makes the book seem that much better.

    Let’s look at some good reviews on Amazon:

    Say what you will about this book, but it is a DIRECT MESSAGE FROM GOD that was sent to this woman. She dutifully typed it all down. Bless her.
    ALSO, GOD DEMANDED SHE PUT IT IN UPPERCASE! THAT WASN’T HER DECISION! GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS – ESPECIALLY IN REGARDS TO TYPOGRAPHY.

    I’M HOPING THAT WHEN I GET THIS BOOK THE ENTIRE THING IS WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS. GOSH WHAT A WAY TO GRAB A PERSONS ATTENTION IS WRITING IS THIS MANNER.

    The author demonstrates that the educational system in which she was raised has failed her. She clearly has no ability to form comprehensible sentences or use the most rudimentary grammar.

    She is incapable of delivering her argument in a manner that could convince anyone of its validity. In fact, the only message that rung true to me was that her parents clearly should have used birth control to save us from this drivel.

    The last one is my fave.

  • reckoner71

    And I thought the comedy well would dry up without George in the White House.

    Thank you, Daniel.

  • http://redheadedskeptic.com lauradee24

    wow, the Holy Spirit sure is a crappy writer!

    I guess one thing we could get out of this is that if this drivel is Holy Spirit inspired, it is further proof that the Bible is not!

  • http://blog.elliottcallahan.com Elliott

    Birth control did more to liberate women than anything in the history of western society. The fact that this woman can even write this book owes to the fact that she isn’t a broodmare, and she doesn’t have to occupy her time suckling some twerp-of-a-man’s litter of children.

    Idiots like her would vote themselves under the lash if they had the chance.

    RESULTING IN THE PERSECUTIONS: AGAINST THE HOLY PEOPLE.
    Wait! Who are we persecuting??? I’m missing out!

    Furthermore, have they ever heard of lower-upper case characters?

    Anyway, apparently God isn’t perfect… since he sucks at writing… very bad…

  • Darkmatter

    In the beginning God said through Moses’ writtings to be fruitful and multiply.

    In the new testament God spoke through apostle Paul that it was better to be unmarried for married couple mind the things of this world and unmarried mind the things of God.

    Paul prefered population control, but it was a different story with the rest of the apostles.

  • Darkmatter

    Has Ms Anderson also fall to the level of those Nigerian $$$?

    Ms Anderson, please remember that the love of mammon is the root of all evil.

    In what must be a divine miracle, the headline from today’s The Onion page-a-day calendar is “Morning After Morning After Pill Re-Impregnates Guilt-Ridden Women”.

    I AM HOLEY SPIRIT! YOU CAN KNOE THAT I IS HOLEY SPIRIT BECAUSE TALK IN BIG LETTRES AND HOLEY SPRIT MOVING WITHIN ME. GIVE HOLEY SPRIRIT $135 OR YOU WILL BURN IN THE FRIES OF HELL YOU INVIDELS.!

  • Dr. Karl E. Taylor

    In my struggles to become a published author, I now understand why vanity and self publishing are looked down upon in many cases. $150 for this noise? I don’t think so.

  • demianfarnworth

    Yeah, so that whole normative Christian discussion…just kidding. No doubt I’d tear into this one, too. Awful. Heartbreaking.

  • Lisa S

    Silly people. Didn’t you know it isn’t written bad….it’s written in TONGUES!!

    You just aren’t filled with the ‘holey spirit’ to understand…

    And I think the fact that she’s fleecing people for $135 a pop, people that are probably having a hard time making ends meet, does allow me to ridicule her (referring to Magdalena). I’m sure she’s laughing.

    It just provides yet another reason why freedom from superstitions is necessary.

  • http://alphonsuspeck.wordpress.com/ alphonsuspeck

    Well, alas, I think it’s pretty obvious that the woman who wrote this is quite simply insane. Paranoid Schizophrenia at the very least. I think we should all buy a copy of her book so that we all help her pay for her electroshock treatments.

    Seriously, this is rather sad. I’ve known people with serious mental illnesses. It is not funny.

    It’s a shame how many of them turned into saints in the past. Or were even allowed to write entire chapters of the Bible.

    I wish the Holy Spirit wouldn’t yell. It makes me nervous.

  • http://www.vidlord.com VidLord

    guys i have a feeling she might be legit. let’s study her writings and see what we find….

  • DavidP75

    If you all had enough faith, the $135 wouldn’t be an issue. Name it and claim it, heathens!

    Fail.

  • http://verywide.net/ James P.

    What I can’t get over is how nobody wants to hear her out and give her equal time with CIntelligent Design Proponentists, fakirs, Mormons, SubGenii (and other Discordians), followers of Cthulhu (watch their programs on ctHulu! “Download to Insanity!”), Satanists, Hindus, Sikhs, Janists, Buddhists, Shintoists, Onanists, Deists proper and Theists improper, Istists (“Down with istisms!), schizophrenics, Theosophists and other assorted occultist flavors (from “New Age Goddess” vanilla to licorice-tasting wormwood Crowleyana), UFOlogists, Bono, FSMers, Native Americans, practitioners of Vodoun, Moonies, COS players, etc., etc., etc., non-theists, atheists (oh! there you are!), and the dead.

    You people are biased and unfair! Teach the controversy!

  • Siveambrai

    Apparently the Holy Spirit doesn’t want her to speak to the Hindus, Buddhists, Shintos, etc. actually she left out most of asia.

    The biggest obstacle we face in changing attitudes toward overpopulation is economists. Since the field of economics was branded “the dismal science” after Malthus’ theory, economists have been adamant that they would never again consider the subject of overpopulation and continue to insist that man is ingenious enough to overcome any obstacle to further growth. This is why world leaders continue to ignore population growth in the face of mounting challenges like peak oil, global warming and a whole host of other environmental and resource issues. They believe we’ll always find technological solutions that allow more growth.

    But because they are blind to population growth, there’s one obstacle they haven’t considered: the finiteness of space available on earth. The very act of using space more efficiently creates a problem for which there is no solution: it inevitably begins to drive down per capita consumption and, consequently, per capita employment, leading to rising unemployment and poverty.

    If you‘re interested in learning more about this important new economic theory, then I invite you to visit either of my web sites at OpenWindowPublishingCo.com or PeteMurphy.wordpress.com where you can read the preface, join in the blog discussion and, of course, buy the book if you like.

    Please forgive the somewhat spammish nature of the previous paragraph, but I don’t know how else to inject this new theory into the debate about overpopulation without drawing attention to the book that explains the theory.

    This no birth control thing has been gaining momentum – the Quiverful Movement. These women are NOT joking when they say they are raising more of “Christ’s Army.” Apparently they are putting “God in control of their womb.” Ugh. They have been known to pop out a dozen or so, home schooled, of course. .

    Take a look at this site:

    http://www.generationcedar.blogspot.com

    She’s 32 with eight children and one on the way. Typical.

    My favorite part of this is when she “encourages” women to buck up – if you can’t stand the constant demand of “God’s Will” then that’s part of how God is teaching you – PAIN. Nice work, God.

    Is it any wonder that Andrea Yates drowned her children? It’s just horrible.

  • elflocko

    Wow.

    That woman is bat-shit crazy…

  • Ty

    Writing well written and apologetic spam doesn’t mean it isn’t still spam.

    I’ve been posting to this site for months, I’m also published in a mass market paperback you could find in any book store, and I’ve never once mentioned the title. Some things just aren’t cool.

  • hambydammit

    I’m trying to think of a suitable superlative to express the incomparable stupidity of this woman and anyone who buys her shit.

    It’s people like this that periodically cause me to lose hope for humanity.

  • marcion

    wow. i didn’t even know you could self publish on amazon and barnes and nobles. (see how much better all lowercase is?) i’m guessing amazon must not require you to buy the book to comment, because i doubt these people really payed that price just to say things like:

    “I’ve found this book to be extremely helpful for me in helping me beat back my disgusting urges for the sinful, tempting, curvaceous, sweaty, heaving bodies of women. By reading this I’ve learned to understand that fornication is only for procreation not for the unbridled enjoyment it otherwise provides. Having sex without making babies is akin to eating a large, moist, hot, panting piece of chocolate cake without washing your plate afterwards. Where is the fun in that?”

  • marcion

    oh, and the book’s reduced from $150, so its a steal.
