Roll to Disbelieve EGG-Stravaganza Easter Super Special! (#8)

Roll to Disbelieve EGG-Stravaganza Easter Super Special! (#8) April 20, 2019

Welcome! This weekend, much of the world celebrates Easter. This holiday represents a celebration of renewal and rebirth–and not only for Christians! In that vein, enjoy this hand-curated collection of past Roll to Disbelieve posts that relate to this time of year!

(Ashley Edwards.) Obviously, totally Christian. Totally.

Easter Shenanigans.

Ah, Easter. It’s one of the biggest holidays of the Christian calendar. It’s also one of the best opportunities to see the weirdest, most nonsensical aspects of the religion in action.

Lights, Camera, Crucifixion!

Below, links to our recently-hosted guest movie fanedit of The Passion of the Christ. Come for the snark. Stay for the thoughtful, on-target critique of a movie–and religion–long overdue for it. (PS: ssj edited out a lot of the gore.)

Evangelism and Rebirth.

At this time of year, Christians’ fancies lightly turn to thoughts of rebirths of various kinds.

Paganism.

I reckon I still have a bit of a soft spot for paganism as a culture.

  • Just Another Brick in the Wall (Falls Out). Teen Pentecostal Cassidy learns about ancient non-Christian religions bearing a startling similarity to her own.
  • Wherein Yr. Loyal Correspondent Attends a Pagan Orgy. What it says on the tin. My young-adult years could be charitably described as “often accidentally exciting.”
  • We All Crazy, and We Do What We Do. A Christian briefly converts to paganism, makes a big honkin’ deal out of it, then reconverts back to Christianity when paganism didn’t do something it never promised anybody it could do (but something which Christians promise endlessly–and falsely–that their religion can do). Dizzy yet? Come meet Teo Bishop.
  • The Day I Met a Pagan Fundie. They exist. And they’re just as tiresome as Christian fundies are. That day, I learned both facts almost simultaneously.

Have a wonderful weekend, however you’re spending it! See you again on Half Price Chocolate Bunny Day!

About Captain Cassidy
Captain Cassidy grew up fervently Catholic, converted to the SBC in her teens, and became a Pentecostal shortly afterward. She even married an aspiring preacher! But then--record scratch!--she brought everything to a screeching halt when she deconverted in her mid-20s. That was 25 years ago. Now a comfortable None, she blogs on Roll to Disbelieve about psychology, pop culture, politics, relationships, cats, gaming, and more--and where they all intersect with religion.
