CARDS reportedly being circulated in vast numbers by anti-vaccine, COVID-denying evangelists are being held up to ridicule on social media, with one Twitter user saying ‘evangelicals always portray God supporting either the dumbest or the most sociopathic choice when faced with options …’ Another tweeted: If the Lord has vaccinated me, why in the hell have I had 5 bouts of pneumonia? He also pointed out: I’d love for these vax-idiots to come to me. I’d love to remind them… Read more

CREATED as a Mexican state in 1902, heavenly Quintana Roo is a haven where youngsters are growing up without fear of hell or concerns about what happens to them in a mythical ‘after-life.’ According to a recent National Survey of Believers and Non-Believers in Mexico, Quintana Roo has highest percentage of atheists in the country: almost 37 percent, followed by Baja California, with 20 percent, and Mexico City, with 16 percent. A report (in Spanish) quotes psychologist Graciela Alvarado Estrella… Read more

ITS last big frivolous lawsuit – involving ‘persecuted’ actor Seya Omooba  – ended up a complete train wreck. As did a number of high-profile cases before it. But the Christian Legal Centre, headed by Andrea Minichiello Williams, appears blind to its failings and has now taken up cudgels on behalf of a school chaplain –  Rev Dr Bernard Randall, above – sacked from Trent College near Nottingham. Randall, 48, and Trent eventually parted company after he delivered a homophobic sermon… Read more

TELEVANGELIST Ernest Angley, above, the butt of many jokes because of his grotesque wig and comical way of speaking – (‘must watch’ video) –  has fallen off the perch aged 99. Dubbed ‘The Rev Ernest Angry’ by the late actor and comedian Robin Williams, Angley (net worth $15-m) shared the traits of all evangelical preachers. He was a liar, a crook, a charlatan and a hypocrite. According to USA Today, his “sometimes-outrageous” faith-healing claims drew sharp criticism from many, including… Read more

ANYONE wanting to attend a new summer camp organised by Brooklyn-based ‘health coach’ Naftali Schwartz, above, must show they’ve rejected COVID-19 vaccinations. The Times of Israel reports that radio show host Schwartz, who has no formal training in medicine or public health, claimed that vaccinated people pose a real threat to those who have not had the vaccine. Camp Hikon aims to prepare boys attending yeshivas (religious schools) for what it calls “political, environmental and economic” changes to come. Despite… Read more

‘Uh-oh, Catholics gonna hate this,’ said I to my husband Marcus as we watched Moira Rose, dressed like a Pope, perform a marriage ceremony for her son David and his lover Patrick in ‘Happy Ending’, the final episode of the award-winning Canadian sitcom Schitt’s Creek. There are a few other digs at religion in a TV series one Christian writer suggested was “best suited for the thick-skinned (perhaps the desensitized) Christian viewer.” In one scene, as the family does a… Read more

IN the late 1970s, self-appointed Christian Morality Supremo Mary Whitehouse suffered a backlash after she successfully brought a private prosecution for blasphemous libel against Gay News. Stung by hostile reaction to the prosecution, Whitehouse began screeching that “everything good and true” in Britain was being undermined by “the humanist gay lobby”. Of course, no such lobby existed except in the deranged woman’s fevered brain, but in 1979 George Broadhead, then a member of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality (CHE), said… Read more

BRITISH actor and singer Laurence Fox, above, son of evangelical thespian James Fox, has lashed out at church leaders, claiming they aren’t adequately defending the rights of Christians. Fox, who last year established a new right-wing political party called Reclaim, has ambitions to become the next Mayor of London. In an interview with Premier, he said it’s up to individuals whether they wear masks or sing in church. And he said leaders, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, have been too… Read more

TODAY saw America mark its annual National Day of Prayer, a silly tradition dating back to 1952,  but for the first time in years, no prayer service was conducted at the US Capitol. Why? Because the building is closed to the public due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, Christianity Daily presented the closure as an aggressive move against Christian worship. Under the headline “Biden Administration Won’t Allow National Day Of Prayer To Be Held At US Capitol This Year” it quoted… Read more

A ‘PROPHETIC Standards Statement’ set up by a bunch of conservative Christian leaders in the US has ruffled feathers among the many pastors who wrongly prophesied that Trump would win the 2020 election. One of those who attacked the Statement is all-round crackpot, QAnon conspiracy theorist and dominionist prophet Johnny Enlow, above, who wrote on Facebook: Enough months have gone by since the election of 11/3/2020 that it is worth revisiting some important truth. There is actually no ‘waiting to… Read more
