Title: Those Crazy Christians
Post by: Private on 19 September 2019 at 19:07
Of course you've got to be nutty to believe in a spook in the sky but these christ-insaners have lost it. First, they don't even follow their silly holy book (which I guess you really couldn't without being borderline retarded) and allow homosexuals in to their congregation but then they think they can fix everything by praying the gay away.


Church members pinned down a worshiper and tried to ‘pray the gay away,’ he alleges


Sean Cormie said that everything about the Sunday service was going fine, right up to the moment the pastor began preaching about the sin of homosexuality.

The 23-year-old gay man said he was there Sept. 8 with his partner, Gary Gardner, because his mother and stepfather are youth pastors at the Blackwell, Okla., church. He wanted to worship with them.

Then, Cormie said, First Assembly of God pastor Bill McKissick’s sermon veered. He paced around the room and said there was someone in the church at that moment who was guilty of homosexuality, an “abomination of a sin,” according to Cormie.

That’s when the pastor pointed straight at Cormie and Gardner, he said in the Facebook post he wrote about the incident, and members of the congregation stood up and circled around them, “praying the spirit of homosexuality out of us,” Cormie wrote.

When the couple rose to leave, he said, Cormie’s grandmother pushed Gardner, who then got up and ran out of the church. Cormie describes being pinned down by family members and other congregants, about a dozen people in total, then slammed into a wall and punched in the face.

All the while, he says, they were yelling and crying, trying to “pray the gay away.”

As soon as Cormie broke free, he reported the incident to the Blackwell Police Department, according to KFOR, an NBC affiliate in Oklahoma City. Police Chief Dewayne Wood told The Washington Post that the incident is being investigated and a report will be available when more details emerge.

“I was so embarrassed,” Gardner told KFOR. “I felt about two inches tall when this started.”

Gardner didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. Cormie referred The Post to his message on Facebook and answered some questions about the incident.

The Pentecostal church’s pastors, McKissick and his wife, Tami, told KFOR in a statement that the incident was a “family matter that escalated.”

“Our church would never condone restraint of any person unless they were engaged in violent activity,” the McKissicks said. “There is much more to this incident, and we are cooperating fully with law enforcement to hopefully bring all of the facts to light as a rush to judgment is not in anyone’s best interest.”

No one answered calls to the church Wednesday morning.

Cormie, who came out last spring, told KFOR that he does believe homosexuality is a sin, but that it’s also his nature. The Assemblies of God believes homosexuality is a sin, but one can seek reconciliation, according to one of the church’s position papers.

Nancy Petty, senior pastor at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, N.C., doesn’t agree with the Assemblies’ view. She said every week, she sees true believers who are gay and who are struggling to accept themselves and their faith simultaneously.

“The first thing I say to them is that you are God’s beloved child just as you are with no need to be any different than who you are,” she said, adding that the church has used the Bible for years to oppress gay people, slaves and women.

Matthew Vines, author of “God and the Gay Christian,” said many LGBTQ Christians often resolve the tension between their orientation or identities by leaving the church or faith, reassessing key passages of the Bible that are often used to condemn homosexuality and learning to live with internal battles of being gay and having faith.

“It’s just people who are trying to live the best they can,” he said of the third option. “They also recognize that’s not a livable belief."

Petty said it’s inexplicable for a church to try to “pray the gay out” of people in 2019.

“Find a community that can support you, nurture you and help you at least hear some different perspectives,” she said.

Mark Forrester, senior director of public relations and communication for Assemblies of God, said church officials weren’t familiar with the allegations against the First Assembly of God.

“The Assemblies of God believes that all people are created in the image of God and are worthy of respect and dignity, regardless of their personal beliefs,” he said in a statement. “We certainly condemn any acts of violence or acts against an individual’s will.”

H. Frank Cargill, superintendent of the Oklahoma Assemblies of God Ministries, said he had no firsthand knowledge of the incident.

“The Assemblies of God churches of Oklahoma welcomes and treats with respect, compassion, and sensitivity all who experience same-sex attractions. We hold no malice toward, or fear of, homosexuals and those struggling with sexual identity. Such attitudes are not of Christ,” he said in a statement.

Cormie said he doesn’t believe all churches are like First Assembly of God.

“I am a proud gay Christian,” he said in his Facebook post. “Praying daily to God for justice and mercy on these sad acts of the church’s actions as a whole."

Well, he's right ... Mary Magdalene the harlot of Jerusalem was Jesus' shag, and Mary the lying slut was his mother. Not that any of them existed, of course.

Kyle Sandilands sparks outrage among Christian and Muslim communities for saying the Virgin Mary was a 'liar' who got knocked up 'behind a camel shed'



Excerpt: 'I thought Mary was his [Jesus Christ's] girlfriend but apparently it was the mother,' he began.

'And the mother lied obviously and told everyone, "Nah, I got pregnant by a magical ghost". Bulls**t. Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed!'

'You might believe everything that's written down 2,000 years ago to be absolutely accurate and good on you... you're dumb. Dumb as dog s**t,' he added.

Listeners were quick to slam Kyle for his comments, which eventually resulted in the video being taken down, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Another unrelated video was deleted by KIIS FM's social media administrators after people began leaving angry comments directed at Kyle.

New Bill Would Allow ‘In God We Trust’ To Be Posted In Pennsylvania Schools

September 30, 2019 at 1:56 pm

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pennsylvania lawmaker has proposed a new bill that would allow the motto “In God We Trust” to be displayed in schools.

House Bill 1602 was proposed by Representative Cris Dush, a Republican serving Jefferson County and part of Indiana County.

Dush’s proposal would allow the phrase “In God We Trust” in classrooms or other places throughout school buildings.

The bill doesn’t require schools to display the motto, just encourages it.

“The motto ‘In God We Trust’ is part of the history and heritage of the United States. On April 22, 2014, we celebrated the 150th Anniversary of our national motto “In God We Trust” on our coins,” Dush said in a memo about the bill.

Dush also says, “The display of our nation’s motto may take the form of mounted plaques or artwork from a student contest that will be prominently displayed in each school building.”

“One nation under God”/ “In God we trust”. Then why legalise Gay marriage? That is anti Christian.

Yesterday I saw a Chinese military parade on TV. They flexed their muscles with all their new weapons of war. We fed them our jobs and they bought this stuff.

America may not be “Top Dog” for long. The community isn’t the same sort of community there that it was 50 years ago or so. Less whites being born due to different values in society now.

The world needs a strong America!

With :- increased drug use, less white people, a drop in values it’s not going to be tough to be the “Top Dog” for long.

Let’s not forget the servicemen and women who died saving a White Australia/NZ from an Asian threat. Would it be possible to pull off a defence this time around?

Creationist Ken Ham Wants You To Threaten Kids With ‘Eternal Hell’ On Halloween

The guy who made his own Noah’s Ark is back with a plan to mess up Halloween.

By Ed Mazza
10/21/2019 05:37 AM ET

Along with checking Halloween candy for choking hazards and other concerns, parents might want to inspect for something else: propaganda.

Creationist Ken Ham, who runs a Noah’s Ark-themed attraction in Kentucky, is encouraging his followers to hand out a Halloween “gift” that’s more trick than treat..

Help us tell more of the stories that matter from voices that too often remain unheard.

“One way you can make the most of this once-a-year opportunity is by giving gospel tracts to children and/or their parents, along with candy and treats,” he wrote on his website.

Ham suggests giving away the items he sells, including fake “million-dollar” bills with pictures of things like a T-Rex or Noah’s Ark on the front and warnings of eternal damnation on the back:

Ham clams the funny money is “worth far more than a million dollars,” which would make the retail price of $8.99 for 200 of them an absolute steal.

“Have you ever lied, stolen or used God’s name in vain?” a message on the back of one of the bills reads. “If so, you’ve broken God’s law. The penalty for your crimes against God is death and eternal hell because God is holy and just.”

The other bill ― which again, Ham wants you to give to little kids on Halloween ― warns against lust, which it says is “the same as committing adultery.”

“God sees you as guilty of sin,” the bill reads. “The penalty of sin is death and eternity in hell.”

“Kids love these!” Ham claims on his blog.

He also urges people to buy and distribute other items he sells, like booklets about the “evils of modern-day Halloween.”

In previous years, Ham has suggested what he calls “reverse trick-or-treating,” which is when you visit others on Halloween to give them “goodies,” which of course includes his gospel booklets.

It's bad enough our Brothers and Sisters have been mind polluted by christ-insanity and  have followed the jewish made bible for way to long. Now if they start adopting more and more of these leftists talking points, we might as well consider them a total lost to the White Race.


Church nativity depicts Jesus, Mary and Joseph as family separated at border

“What if this family sought refuge in our country today?” the Southern California church said in a Facebook post.

Dec. 8, 2019, 5:08 PM CST
By Tim Stelloh

How did they get past the Israeli wall?

A Southern California church is displaying a nativity scene depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as a family separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.

A photo posted Saturday on Facebook by a senior minister at Claremont United Methodist Church, east of Los Angeles, showed the Holy Family inside three chain link cells topped with razor wire.

In a statement posted by the minister, Karen Clark Ristine, the church said that after fleeing a tyrant king, Jesus, Mary and Joseph became “the most well-known refugee family in the world.”

“What if this family sought refuge in our country today?” the church said. “Imagine Joseph and Mary separated at the border and Jesus no older than two taken from his mother and placed behind the fences of a Border Patrol detention center.”

Inside the church, the family is reunited in a separate nativity scene, the statement said.

Ristine could not be reached for comment Sunday.

Thousands of children, many of them from Central America, were separated from their families at the United States’ southern border after the Trump administration began criminally prosecuting every adult who entered the country illegally.

In response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, immigration authorities said in October that 5,400 children had been separated from their families beginning in July 2017.

The administration ended the practice last year, although watchdogs have said it has continued at a slower pace and sometimes under dubious circumstances.

Earlier this year, the administration launched a new effort aimed at keeping asylum seekers in Mexico while they await court proceedings in the United States.

Last week, the nonprofit group Human Rights First said it had documented 636 reports of rape, kidnapping, torture and other violent crimes against migrants who have been returned to Mexico under the program.

This fairytale of a religion is so ridiculous. I never could understand how anyone could believe in such nonsense. I figured out how absurd christ-insanity was by age 10, so I could never understand how an adult that wasn't retarded could ever claim to believe this b.s..


'Come out of that grave in Jesus' name': California church prays to resurrect girl


Supporters have spread the hashtags #wakeupolive and #victoriousawakening across social media in an effort to raise the 2-year-old from the dead.

Dec. 19, 2019, 7:35 PM CST
By The Associated Press

Kalley Heiligenthal stomped her feet and waved her arms, dancing her way from one side of the bright-lit stage to the other.

“Come alive, come alive!” the congregants at Bethel Church in Redding, California, shouted in expectation as they clapped and sang praises.

The faithful shared these scenes on Instagram Tuesday night as they prayed for Heiligenthal’s 2-year-old daughter, Olive Alayne, to be raised from the dead.

Heiligenthal, a worship leader and songwriter for Bethel Music, announced on social media Sunday that her daughter had stopped breathing and been pronounced dead.

Since then, she has publicly called for people to pray that her girl be resurrected.

“We are asking for bold, unified prayers from the global church to stand with us in belief that He will raise this little girl back to life,” she said on Sunday through Instagram. “It’s time for her to come to life.”

Redding police are investigating the death, as is standard when someone so young dies, said Redding police Sgt. Brian Torum. The case was reported to police as a medical issue about 6 a.m. Saturday, Torum said.

The child's body is at the coroner's office, Torum said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with “the unforeseeable expenses the Heiligenthal family will incur, medical and otherwise.” As of Thursday afternoon, more than $50,000 had been collected.

Supporters of Heiligenthal have spread the hashtags #wakeupolive and #victoriousawakening across social media and described their prayers as radical worship and a spiritual awakening.

"Come out of that grave in Jesus' name!” they have said.

Arlene Sánchez-Walsh, a professor of religious studies at Azusa Pacific University, said that in this case, worshippers are not conducting prayers for the girl to go to heaven as is common after a death.

"They're praying for this girl to come back to her body," Sánchez-Walsh said.

The Bible mentions several cases where people were raised from the dead. In 1 Kings, the prophet Elijah brings the son of a widow back from the grave, after the child died from an illness. In the New Testament, Jesus raises two children from the dead, as well as his friend Lazarus.

Prayers for similar resurrections are more common among charismatic and Pentecostal worshippers in African countries than in the United States, according to Sánchez-Walsh. When she came across this very public call for resurrection, she said, she was surprised.

"When I read about it, I thought it was somewhere else," Sánchez-Walsh said. "I'm taken aback by the very raw nature of the request."

Bethel, a Pentecostal church, is based in the city of Redding in Northern California. While originally under the Assemblies of God denomination, the church now identifies as nondenominational.

Sánchez-Walsh described Bethel as a church that is "much looser in terms of theology" and that does not operate on a hierarchical model. Being nondenominational, Bethel operates without oversight from a larger religious tradition.

"They're on their own because they don't have the same kind of restrictions that a denomination may have," said Richard Flory, senior director of research and evaluation at the University of Southern California’s Center for Religion and Civic Culture.

This includes the operation of Bethel Music, a ministry with its own record label that supplies churches around the country with worship songs. There is also the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, which offers classes on life coaching, preaching and career ministry.

Bethel and other charismatic churches emphasize spiritual gifts such as speaking in tongues and healings. Bethel has a particular emphasis on miracles.

"In general they believe in the miraculous access to the supernatural. That's their whole thing," Flory said.

Flory was surprised that a GoFundMe account would be necessary for Bethel to help with the family's expenses, as he described Bethel as a multimillion-dollar organization.

"If you're that big and have that much money, wouldn't you support your worship leader in some fashion or another?" Flory wondered.

Flory said it will be interesting to see what will happen if the girl is not raised from the dead. How will worshippers react?

"I wonder how heartbreaking it's going to be or if they're going to have this sort of rationale built in that explains why she didn't," Flory said.

Even though christ-insanity is still a major threat to the White Man's thinking. I do see it loosing control of the younger generations. Unfortunately the social justice warrior (s.j.w.) mentality is becoming their new religion. Which has been heavily indoctrinated through the schools (especially Universities/Colleges) and social media, and is just as detrimental to the White Race.


Christian Lawmakers Group Blames Satan After Twitter Poll Goes Badly Awry

The National Association of Christian Lawmakers posted a Twitter poll about religion in politics. They didn’t like the response.

By Ed Mazza
02/18/2020 04:34 AM ET

Never ask a question when you might not like the answer.

A group ostensibly representing Christian lawmakers launched a poll on Twitter over the weekend asking if America would be better off with more Christians in elected office.

It didn’t go well:

Invalid Tweet ID

After more than 16,000 replies, the answer was an overwhelming “no,” which received 95.8 percent of the vote. In response, the group accused “atheists and Satanists” of “religious persecution” for voting in the poll.

Congress is overwhelmingly Christian, far out of proportion with the people they represent. According to a Pew survey last year, the Senate and House are nearly 90 percent Christian versus 65 percent of America as a whole.

One in four Americans now considers themselves atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular,” a position publicly held by just one member of the current Congress, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who lists her religion as “none.” Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) describes himself as a humanist while a handful of others haven’t acknowledged a faith or lack thereof.

The National Association of Christian Lawmakers was started last year by Arkansas State Sen. Jason Rapert (R), who warned about the rise of witches in a recruitment email.  It’s not clear how many members the group has, but its board of advisors includes a number of current and former elected officials, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

An attempt to raise $500,000 via GoFundMe stalled at less than $20,000, more than half of which came from a single anonymous donor.

In the same theme but for Australia, where Australian Parliament is also around 90% Christian, while the country itself is less than 60% Christian. The current debate and demand by Conservative Christians for a Religious Discrimination Bill which will give the Christians (and Satanists, Pagans and Creators) the same rights as already held by homosexuals, Muslims, Jews and the rest of the non-White religions, where faggots are protected under special Hate-Crime laws to protect just them, and the Muslims, Jews et al ad nauseam under special Racial Vilification/Australian general Hate-Crime law that does not protect White Australians.

For Instance: Due to race and culture, a Muslim or a Jew can get away with just about anything up to and in many instances, including murder because you, as a White Australian, or even a White American tourist in Australia, are offending the sensibilities of the Muslim for simply existing in its vicinity. They don't want you on their ten square feet of turf, so when you were politely asked to leave, you attacked in a violent, racially provocative manner ... and you died while they defended themselves: No Charges for the Muslim because it's a Muslim. At least that's the story each and every time .... The truth is, the Muslim attacked you because you were on its turf. Muslims are psychotic nutjobs that believe everyone they see that is White is a Christian and therefore responsible for their bullshit version of the Crusades against Islam over a thousand years ago. Therefore, their hatred and violence against Whites is justified no matter what they do.

So that's the reality of it, and why this law is actually needed.

However, what the Christinsane actually want is to have Christian schools, Christian hospitals, Christian nursing homes, and Christian butchers, bakers and candlestick makers. All with the goal that they have the right to discriminate in exactly the same way that the homosexual community, the Muslim, the Jewish et cetera already do.

Jews are against it because they like general racial vilification laws for everybody but the White majority.

Dumb Muslims are for it because they think it will give them new laws they can wield. The smarter Muslims understand that they already have their special laws and are against them for the same reason as the Jew.

Atheist libtards are with the Jew and against the bill. Atheist realists understand the persecution they have received their entire lives and are for the bill. Pagans are for the bill for that same reason.

Satanists just want to preach to children in schools.

Creators: We are more realist than any others, and we can see that this bill, should it pass, will go a long way towards nullifying the detrimental effects of Hate-Crime law by putting everyone on the same legal footing.

The problem is, Christians are becoming scared of the repercussions of the bill that they want enacted into law - because they might feel insulted by others that they do not want to have any rights that the Christians think is theirs only. In other words, just the threat of a possible few nasty words and Christians want to run and pray:

Religious discrimination bill backfires on Christians

Luke Beck | Sydney Morning Herald (https://www.smh.com.au/) (Australia) | 19 February 2020

Luke Beck is an associate professor of constitutional law at Monash University and the author of Religious Freedom and the Australian Constitution: Origins and Future (Routledge, 2018).


Excerpt: Conservative Christians are some of the biggest supporters of Scott Morrison’s religious discrimination bill. But they should be careful what they wish for. It won’t just be gay people, women and people with disabilities who lose out under the proposed law. Christians will be among the biggest losers.

Here’s what the bill lets people do to Christians.

The bill protects "statements of belief" from being the subject of a complaint under any federal, state or territory anti-discrimination law. The protection extends to statements made in writing or by spoken words that ridicule, humiliate or even intimidate another person.

Employers will be able to ridicule Christians in the workplace. For example, an atheist boss could put a poster above a Christian worker’s desk saying "Christianity is superstitious nonsense". The boss could also say things like "Christianity is like a mental disorder" to a Christian during a job interview.

Doctors will be able to humiliate Christian patients. For example, a Buddhist doctor could tell the Christian parents of an unwell child, "If you spent less time praying and more time caring about your child’s health, your child wouldn’t be this sick."

Shopkeepers will be able to intimidate Christian customers. For example, a Muslim butcher will be allowed to intimidate a Christian customer. The butcher could tell the customer, "You Christian infidels better watch out: you will suffer punishment."

Under existing anti-discrimination laws in most states and territories these examples would likely be unlawful discrimination. The Christians on the receiving end of this nastiness would be able to lodge complaints or even sue in the courts.

Scott Morrison’s religious discrimination bill changes this. The bill overrides state and territory laws and makes being nasty to Christians lawful. The bill also includes a mechanism to allow a federal minister to override any other federal, state or territory laws, such as work health and safety laws, that might prevent people making "statements of belief" like these.

The bill also harms Christians in other ways. The bill attempts to prevent Christians being discriminated against on the basis of their beliefs in hiring and firing decisions. Bosses can use "statements of belief" to be nasty to Christians, but technically won’t be allowed to refuse to hire them.

What matters is real life. In practice, the bill actually encourages employers to refuse to hire Christians.

The bill includes provisions that allow Christians to ignore workplace codes of conduct in certain circumstances. For example, Christian workers will not have to comply with some workplace codes of conduct that prohibit making comments on social media like those made by Israel Folau.

The reality is that many businesses take such codes of conduct seriously. Businesses have brands and reputations to think about. And many businesses genuinely want to create inclusive workplaces where gay people and other minorities feel welcome.

Under Scott Morrison’s religious discrimination bill, life will be easier for businesses if they simply do not hire Christians. That would avoid all the hassles, all the commercial impacts and the expensive lawyer fees involved in Christians not having to comply with workplace codes of conduct.

Of course, technically it will be unlawful to refuse to hire someone because they are a Christian. But the Christian has to prove that the reason they didn’t get the job was because they are a Christian. Actually proving that was the reason is extremely hard to do. And it is expensive, usually involving lawyers.

On the other hand, it is very easy for an employer to say that someone didn’t get a job because of a poor interview performance or because there was a better candidate.

The bible cautions people against making life difficult for others. Psalm 7:16 says "The trouble they make for others backfires on them."

This is exactly what the christ-insane deserve for believing that a magical spook in the sky will protect them. One would hope events like this would help unpollute the minds of the Christian's, but unfortunately they are so confused that they just convince themselves that it's god's will. What a loving and protecting god they have. How can any logical thinking person put such "faith" in such childish ideas of gods and magical spooks?


Nearly 3 dozen who attended Arkansas church event test positive for coronavirus

March 26, 2020, 11:21 AM CDT
By Janelle Griffith

Nearly three dozen people who attended a recent children's event at a church in Arkansas have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to church officials.

Donald Shipp, a deacon at First Assembly of God church in Greers Ferry, about 75 miles north of Little Rock, told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that 34 people who attended the event in early March at the Cleburne County church had tested positive for the coronavirus, and that an unknown number of others were awaiting test results.

Danyelle McNeill, a spokeswoman for the Arkansas Department of Health, said a number of coronavirus cases have been associated with a church in Cleburne County, which she did not identify.

"We are still investigating newly reported cases and can’t definitively say they are all connected to one church," McNeill told NBC News on Thursday. "This is a cluster within a larger outbreak in that area of the state."

There were at least 310 reported coronavirus cases and two deaths in Arkansas as of Thursday morning.

Mark Palenske, a pastor at the church, said in a lengthy Facebook post late last week that he and his wife, Dena, were among those to test positive for COVID-19.

He said that when such a virus spreads on the other side of the world, "your first inclination is to assume that time and distance are on your side."

But "that false assumption" recently caught up with him and his wife, he said.

The couple and dozens of others from their church initially could not get tested, according to Palenske.

"One local doctor had a very small number of commercial tests and the rest is history, I suppose," he wrote.

He said that before even receiving positive test results, the church had followed medical advice and canceled services.

The couple's symptoms began with headaches followed by intense body aches and lethargy, as well as waves of chills, sweating and nausea, Palenske wrote in his post.

"Dena had a very scary morning a few days ago, which included a seizure of sorts and required hospitalization," he said.

His wife's condition has since improved and they are both back home, he said. Palenske said he could not pinpoint "where the virus came from."

"Even though we were the original positives, there are people who have been sick longer than we have," he said. "It clearly made its way through a special weekend of children’s ministry at our church."

He requested that people pray for health care workers, and he advised that people "take this medical threat more seriously."

"Maybe you assumed that it couldn’t happen to you, just like I did," he wrote. "Please adhere to the social instructions that you are receiving locally and nationally."

I feel if anything this Crisis will bring more people to the church.
Some people have suicided as they feel the world is closing in.
A lot of edgy people. Yesterday I felt a “dog eat dog” presence I never experienced so bad in Australia and it was confronting and eerie.

I live at a different address to my female friend and we went to the shop. The rules stated 2x pasta items each. So I bought them and she did too. At check out at security the “heavy “ they hired advised us we entered as a “group” and couldn’t buy two items each!
I said we were different entities and showed ID to prove it but they didn’t care and wouldn’t allow me to feed myself!
They took my pasta off me!2x $1 bags! How petty!

I should’ve just opened the pasta in front of him and tipped it out. Then said “ oh dear”! “What an accident! good I never bought it anyway!”

I mean the cops were down the beach telling people “social distancing please”.
At a skate park they dumped sand in it to stop congregating.

People at the check out get funny and say “ you are too near me” . You dare even cough and people pull a face at you.

Do I touch the petrol pump? The flush button on the loo? Sit on the loo? Touch money?

People are expecting to get it the way it doubles.
If they have low immunity or family who are seniors it could whipe them out!

It’s a time where people feel helpless and afraid and you can bet they’ll turn to religion.

Christians belong to two different predictable types:

The First is Totally ChristINSANE

During a crisis, they will pray, pray and pray harder. If a loved one gets sick, they Thank Jesus. And when a loved one dies, they curse the evil spook under the ground, Satan, and thank their invisible Jewish friend in the sky for looking after their dead loved ones.

The Second Lives in the World of Reality

During the same crisis, the realists will pray as much as the Christinsane, but when trauma occurs, they, they don't blame any evil devils living under the ground; they instead deny the reality of their invisible Jewish friends in the sky and set about getting on with life with a new, bitter outlook and a hatred for the mind-bending lies of Christinsanity.

I feel if anything this Crisis will bring more people to the church.

You're damned right Private. There are plenty who will refuse to turn the other cheek. They will know thine imported enemy and seek him out. Their first step to White Salvation will be the abandonment of the Lies of Christinsanity and the embracing of the Truth that is Nature.

... And then, we will welcome them with open arms to Nature's Eternal Religion - The One & Only Religion for & by the White Man - The Church of Creativity.

'God will shield us from all harm and sickness:' Louisiana pastor expects 2,000 to attend his Easter service

Paulina Cachero

Reverend Tony Spell has brazenly held several in-person church services at Apostolic Life Tabernacle Church with hundreds in attendance amid the coronavirus pandemic. And this Easter Sunday, he said he expected a crowd of more than 2,000 to gather in worship at the megachurch near Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

"Satan and a virus will not stop us," Spell told Reuters on Friday. "God will shield us from all harm and sickness. We are not afraid."


However, Rev. Spell's biggest service yet comes as deaths from COVID-19 in Louisiana reported an increase of 970 new COVID-19 cases in 24 hours on April 10, CNN reported.

The state also reported new single-day records for the number of deaths, with 70 new fatalities on Tuesday and Wednesday. Coronavirus-related deaths in the state surpassed earlier estimates Friday that 746 Louisianna residents would be killed by the virus. A national model used by the White House from the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation now projects nearly 950 infected residents could die, according to the Advertiser.

Despite the rise in the projected death toll in his state, Spell told TMZ in an interview earlier this week that "true Christians do not mind dying."

"Like any zealot or like any pure religious person, death looks to them like a welcome friend. True Christians do not mind dying. They fear living in fear," Spell told TMZ.

Louisiana's state government has issued a stay-at-home order for residents to help curb the spread of COVID-19, asking people to limit movements outside of their homes other than for essential needs, like grocery shopping, refilling prescriptions, and exercising.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards even announced an executive order banning gatherings of 50 or more people while theCenter for Disease Control and Preventionrecommended canceling gatherings of more than 10 people in early March.

Other church leaders have put measures in place to protect congregants from contracting the novel virus by hosting drive-in services or live streaming praise and worship. However, the 42-year-old Evangelical pastor has defiantly ignoring federal and state social distancing measures holding services so he could "lay hands" on his parishioners - something he claimed he couldn't do with a livestreamed service.

"I cannot baptize people in a livestream. I can not lay hands on people in a livestream. I cannot pray for people in a livestream, and this is our biblical command - to lay hands on the sick and when they recover baptize them by immersion in water, which we do every day," Spell told Insider.

He became the second pastor arrested for continuing to hold in-person services and was charged with six misdemeanors on March 31 for disregarding stay-at-home orders.

Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who announced charges against Spell, said in a statement that the pastor's decisions have been "reckless and irresponsible," adding that they "endangered the health of his congregation and our community."

"Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion," he said.

With several churches across the country insisting on holding in-person church services despite public health recommendations and mandates, even President Donald Trump has been forced to address church leaders urging them to follow state and federal social-distancing measures.

"There are some pastors and ministers that want to get together and I have great respect for them," Trump said at a news briefing. "But I would say heal our country - let's get healed before we do this."

Virginia bishop who preached 'God is larger than this dreaded virus' dies of COVID-19

Updated 6 hours ago

A prominent Virginia bishop died after contracting the coronavirus, members of his church announced Sunday.


Bishop Gerald Glenn, the founder and pastor of New Deliverance Evangelistic Church in Chesterfield, Virginia, died Saturday night, church elder Bryan Nevers said in a video post on the church's Facebook page.

"During this time of intense grief, we ask that you pray continually for the FIRST FAMILY of NDEC," a Facebook post from the church read. "While they are mourning the heartbreaking earthly absence of their family patriarch & spiritual father, they also have family members who are struggling to survive this dreaded pandemic."

Glenn and his wife, Marcietia Glenn, tested positive for the virus, their daughter Mar-Gerie Crawley said in a video shared on Facebook. Crawley said in an update Friday that Gerald Glenn was very sick but had improved slightly after being put on a ventilator.

Bishop Gerald Glenn, the founder and pastor of New Deliverance Evangelistic Church in Chesterfield, Virginia, died Saturday night. 

“I just beg people to understand the severity and the seriousness of this because people are saying it’s not just about us, it’s about everyone around us," Crawley said.

She told Richmond station WTVR that Glenn had diverticulitis and that it was not uncommon for him to get sick or have a fever. Glenn's health worsened despite trips to urgent care and the emergency room, she added.

Despite authorities urging people to practice social distancing, Glenn held an in-person service on March 22.

“I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus,” Glenn told his congregation in a sermon that day, according to video of the service shared by WTVR. He vowed to keep preaching “unless I’m in jail or the hospital," the New York Times reported.

The next day, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam ordered nonessential businesses closed and banned all gatherings of more than 10 people. Seven days later on March 30, Northam issued a stay-at-home order in Virginia.

Sen. Tim Kaine offered his condolences, calling Bishop Glenn a friend and pillar of the Richmond faith community in a tweet Sunday.

The church said final arrangements will be announced within the next few days.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Racism Won’t Stop Until We ‘Accept Jesus Christ’

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Wednesday night claimed that the root of America’s racial problems was the lack of faith by “the left.”

Speaking after more than a week of demonstrations against the police killing of George Floyd, a Black man in Minneapolis, Patrick tried to pin the nation’s long and deep-rooted racial problems on people not being religious enough ― and more specifically, “the left” not accepting Jesus Christ.  

Patrick said on Fox News that Floyd’s killing and the unrest breaks his heart and that it’s an issue of “loving God.”

“You cannot love your fellow man if you don’t love God,” he said. “And we have a country where we’ve been working really hard, particularly on the left, to kick God out.”

Patrick also said laws can’t fix racism, only Jesus and God can:

“You cannot change the culture of a country until you change the character of mankind. And you can’t change that unless you change the heart, and for billions of us on the planet, we believe you can’t do that unless you accept Jesus Christ or unless you accept God. God has been left out of this equation through all of this and we need tremendous healing. We cannot heal through commissions and blue-ribbon panels and more laws.”

Fox News host Shannon Bream agreed.

“The Bible tells us it’s not optional,” she said. “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Patrick neglected to mention that while many use faith as a means to share a message of love and integration, others have done just the opposite. Religion ― including Christianity ― has been used to justify both racism and slavery.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the KKK and other white supremacist groups use the Bible and believe the book “is the family history of the white race.” Slate reported that the fires of Klan cross burnings “symbolize faith in Christ.” And the Bible was used historically to justify slavery in the United States.

NYC Priest Leads Vows Against “White Privilege” During Mass in Viral Video

by ChurchPOP Editor - Sep 1, 2020

Pastor Fr. Kenneth Boller, SJ, of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in New York City led his congregation in vows addressing “white privilege” and “racial justice” on Sun., Aug. 30. He led the vows during Mass, just before the final blessing.

In the video, Fr. Boller invites the congregation to recite “a prayer for racial justice,” by responding “Yes.”

Here’s the video below:


Here’s the text of Fr. Boller’s prayer:

“Do you support racial justice, equity, and compassion? Yes.

“Do you affirm that white privilege and the culture of white supremacy must be dismantled where it is present? Yes.

“Do you support racial equity, racial justice, and liberation for every person? Yes.

“Do you affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person? Yes.

“Therefore, from this day forward, will you strive to understand more deeply the injustice and suffering white privilege and white supremacy cause? Yes.

“Will you commit to help transform our Church culture to one that is actively engaged in seeking racial justice and equity for everyone? Yes.

“Will you make a greater effort to treat all people with the same respect you expect to receive? Yes.

“Will you commit to developing the courage to live your beliefs and values of racial justice and equality? Yes.

“Will you strive to eliminate racial prejudice from your thoughts and actions, so that you can better promote the racial justice efforts of our Church? Yes.

“Will you renew and honor this pledge daily, knowing that our Church and our community, our nation, and our world will be better places because of our efforts. Yes.”

Catholic Church teaching on racism and discrimination:

“Created in the image of the one God and equally endowed with rational souls, all men have the same nature and the same origin. Redeemed by the sacrifice of Christ, all are called to participate in the same divine beatitude: all therefore enjoy an equal dignity.

“The equality of men rests essentially on their dignity as persons and the rights that flow from it:

“Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, color, social conditions, language, or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with God’s design. (CCC, 1934-1935)

“There exist also sinful inequalities that affect millions of men and women. These are in open contradiction of the Gospel:

“Their equal dignity as persons demands that we strive for fairer and more humane conditions. Excessive economic and social disparity between individuals and peoples of the one human race is a source of scandal and militates against social justice, equity, human dignity, as well as social and international peace.” (CCC, 1938)

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, please pray for the United States!

Man slashed police car tires, left hand-written note: ‘F--- Police, F--- Trump, Vote Jesus,’ cops say

The suspect told officers “the message needed to be sent and personally wanted to deliver the message," police say

By Bradford Betz | Fox News

New Jersey police on Friday arrested a man for allegedly slashing police car tires and leaving profanity-laden notes about law enforcement, President Donald Trump, and Jesus on their windshields.

The incident unfolded around 10 p.m. Friday at the Saddle Brook Police Department in Bergen County, New Jersey, NJ Advance Media reported.

Surveillance footage captured a suspect puncturing 12 tires of police cruisers and using a tire iron to scratch “FU” on the hood of one car, according to a police statement.

The suspect also allegedly left notes on police and fire department vehicles that said: “F--- Police, F--- Trump, Vote Jesus.”

Not long after, police received a call regarding a suspicious person near the department. Officers located the suspect and arrested him. He was later identified as 25-year-old Mazin Musbah, of Maywood.

Police said at Musbah, at the time of his arrest, was carrying a kitchen knife and notes similar to what had been left on the police cars.

Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said Musbah told officers during his arrest that “the message needed to be sent and personally wanted to deliver the message.”

Musbah was charged with criminal mischief and possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes. He was later released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on October 2.

Maywood Man Who Vandalized Police Cars Steals, Burns Firefighters Memorial Flag, Posts It


A man who was caught vandalizing Saddle Brook police cars posted photos and videos of himself stealing an American flag from a firefighters memorial in Maywood and burning it, authorities said.

Maywood police on Monday arrested borough resident Mazin Musbah, 25, who told them his actions – which included leaving vulgar notes on residents’ vehicles and streets signs throughout town -- “were in response to an anti-government sentiment he recently developed from watching the news,” Police Chief Terence Kenny said.

Lincoln Project founder: Fly landing on Pence was 'mark of the devil'

thepostmillennial.com (http://thepostmillennial.com)

Pence: The Lord of the Flies  =))

Viewers of Wednesday night's vice presidential debate found amusement when a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence's head, where it remained for several minutes before buzzing off.

While most of the internet had a field day with the incident, dubbing it #flygate and producing thousands of related memes, Steve Schmidt of the Lincoln Project, a neo-conservative anti-Trump super PAC, suggested on MSNBC that the fly was a symbol of Satanic significance.

"That's a sign all through history of sin, and historically, biblically... He who commands the fly has historically been seen the mark of the devil," explained Schmidt before a cackling MSNBC anchor.

The anchor inquired as to whether Schmidt was joking, stating that the "fly could have landed on anyone." Schmidt said yes.

"But it didn't, it landed on Mike Pence," said Schmidt. "It said something." The MSNBC anchor insisted that confirming such a sinister phenomenon was "above his pay grade." Schmidt

Some viewers compared the incident to experiences of former President Barack Obama, who had a fly land on him in an interview with CNBC and again later during a speech regarding Obamacare.

Obama also faced similar accusations of Satanic influence by talk show host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who insisted that flies landing on him was proof of demonic possession. Schmidt once described Jones as a "total whacko."

Archbishop performs exorcism for San Rafael statue

www.marinij.com (http://www.marinij.com)

The Archbishop of San Francisco on Saturday performed an exorcism in front of a San Rafael Catholic church at the site where protesters tore down a statue of a Spanish missionary.


Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone held the exorcism outside of St. Raphael’s Church Saturday morning before performing Mass in honor of the 40 Days for Life movement, an anti-abortion campaign. Following Mass, pro-life supporters marched to the Planned Parenthood clinic in downtown San Rafael and said the rosary.

The exorcism came in response to a protest for Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday in which a group of demonstrators toppled the church’s statue of Fr. Junipero Serra. The demonstrators said Serra, an 18th century Catholic priest who founded nine of California’s missions, contributed to the destruction of Native American cultures.

Mike Brown, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, said the exorcism was an attempt to bless the area where the statue once stood.

“The idea is that there was evil present, either during that event or because of that event, so he’s driving that away with prayer,” Brown said.

San Rafael police on Monday arrested five people accused of felony vandalism in connection with the destruction of the statue.

Almost 50 people attended the demonstration, which took place on the federally recognized Columbus Day holiday, to protest against the colonization and treatment of Native Americans.

About 30 minutes into the protest, a small group of demonstrators removed protective tape that was covering the Serra statue and threw red paint on it. The demonstrators also covered the statue with spray paint and wrote the word “rape” on it.

Protesters then tied straps around the neck of the statue and pulled it down, breaking it at the ankles.

According to Brown, church leaders were not asked by the demonstrators to take down the Serra statue prior to the protest. Cordileone has denounced the incident, saying in a written statement that the statue was “mindlessly defaced and toppled by a small, violent mob.”

“This kind of behavior has no place in a civilized society,” Cordileone said, noting that other Catholic statues have recently been destroyed. A group of protesters in June toppled a statue of Serra in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

Such incidents should not be “treated as small property crimes,” Cordileone said.

“The symbols of our faith are now under attack not only on public property, but now on our own property and even inside of our churches,” he said. “We cannot allow a small, unelected group of lawbreakers to decide what sacred symbols we Catholics or other believers may display and use to foster our faith.”

Cordileone said Native Americans “suffered under Europeans who came here and their descendants, especially after the mission era ended and California entered into the United States.” But Serra, he said, should not be seen “as the icon of oppression of the Indians.”

“Fr. Serra and his fellow Franciscans renounced all worldly pursuits to give their lives to serving the native peoples and so protected them from the abuses of their fellow Spaniards,” he said. “To look to Fr. Serra as the icon of oppression of the Indians is akin to doing the same with Abraham Lincoln and the institution of slavery in the United States.”

Sgt. Justin Graham said San Rafael police knew the protest was planned and talked with church leaders about how to handle it. He said the Archdiocese of San Francisco asked police to use de-escalation techniques and to minimize interactions that could lead to use of force.

“We decided not to get directly involved or interact with the demonstration because we did not want to inflame or escalate the situation,” Graham said in a statement.

Pat Robertson is a wizard that can see the future, just ignore his previous doomsday predictions. What a joke. These spook worshippers are truly insane.


Televangelist Pat Robertson predicts Trump win, then chaos, then the end of the world

Josh Peter, USA TODAY


Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday said God told him who will prevail in the Nov. 3 presidential election: President Donald Trump.

“First of all, I want to say without question, Trump is going to win the election,’’ Robertson told viewers during a segment on “The 700 Club.’’

The 90-year-old founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who has been a supporter and defender of the president, also made dire predictions about the end of the world. .

“What I think very frankly is the only thing that will fulfill the word of Jesus … is some kind of asteroid strike on the globe,’’ he said. “It’s sudden destruction. It’s not going to be some nuclear war. We’re not going to be allowed to blow this earth up.’' 

Robertson has made such prophesies before and was wrong. In 1976, he predicted the world would end in 1982. And in his 1990 book, "The New Millennium," he said the world would be destroyed on April 29, 2007.

So maybe that’s why on Tuesday, after describing the destruction the asteroid will cause, Robertson said, “then, maybe the end.’’

Robertson said more than five years will pass between the end of the election and the asteroid’s arrival. He predicted horrible civil disobedience will commence after the election, there will be at least two attempts on Trump’s life and a war against Israel will end only when God intervenes.

 “God is going to bring a period of great peace,’’ Robertson said.

That is, until the asteroid hits.

At the end of the segment, Robertson said, “I think it’s time to pray.’’

Florida deputy performs exorcism on child, instructs another to shoot anyone who enters demon-filled home

Christopher Dougherty was fired from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and arrested on child abuse charges

By Danielle Wallace | Fox News

A now-former sheriff’s deputy in Florida was arrested Sunday after allegedly performing an exorcism on a child, and telling another there were demons in his home and to shoot anyone who entered.   

Christopher Dougherty, 37, was arrested on child abuse allegations the same day he was fired from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office on an unrelated matter, according to the agency. He had worked with the sheriff’s office since 2006. 

Deputies responded Thursday to a 911 call about a residential alarm and determined there was evidence of child abuse at the apartment occupied by Dougherty. 

A girl, wearing body armor and a Kevlar helmet, was lying on the ground in a shooting position with a rifle. A boy was armed with a Taser, and Dougherty was in possession of a handgun, the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing the arrest affidavit.

The children told investigators Dougherty performed an exorcism on the boy before telling the girl that there were demons in the home and directing her to shoot anyone who entered.

Dougherty was detained and taken to a hospital where he was held under the Baker Act, a Florida law enabling those determined likely to inflict harm to themselves or others to receive emergency mental health services, the Orange County Sheriff's Office told Fox News. He was arrested Sunday after his release.

Dougherty was also terminated from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Sunday for “an unsatisfactory performance finding in a separate matter,” the agency said, without providing details.

“While this deputy was terminated for a pattern of unsatisfactory performance, these are very serious criminal allegations,” Sheriff John Mina said in a statement to Fox News. “As law enforcement officers, we are held to the highest standards of conduct whether on duty or off duty. But we are also concerned about the deputy’s mental health.”

The relationship between Dougherty and the two children remained unclear. 

Dougherty was hired in January 2006 and worked in the uniform patrol division.

Missouri girl, 4, found dead after neighbors beat her to remove a 'demon,' police say

Investigators describe the beating as possible 'religious-type episode'

 By Greg Norman | Fox News

A 4-year-old Missouri girl has been found dead after being attacked by two neighbors who claimed they wanted to remove a "demon" from her family, police say.

Ethan Mast, 35, and Kourtney Aumen, 21, are now facing second-degree murder and other charges following the discovery of the child’s body over the weekend at a home in Cole Camp, southeast of Kansas City. 

"Based on what I know, I think this could be some kind of honest-to-goodness religious-type episode," Benton County Sheriff Eric Knox told the Associated Press.


Ethan Mast, left, and Kourtney Aumen belong to the same church as the victim's family, police say. (Benton County Sheriff's Department)

The suspects and the victimized family belonged to the same church, but Knox declined to name the church or its denomination.

Deputies say they were called around 1 a.m. Sunday to a rural home and found the 4-year-old wrapped in a blanket on a bedroom floor. 

A probable cause statement from Sgt. Chris Wilson said the girl was already dead and had "severe purple bruising" over her body, along with ruptured blisters.

Knox said the girl's parents also had been beaten along with a 2-year-old child. An infant son of the couple was apparently unharmed. The mother, 28-year-old Mary Mast, and the toddler are hospitalized. Their conditions weren't immediately available, while the father of the children, James Mast, did not require hospitalization.

Despite having the same last names, Mary and James Mast are not related to Ethan Mast, Knox told the Associated Press. Ethan Mast and Aumen live across the road from the family.

James Mast told investigators that the beatings had occurred over several days and that he and his wife observed them but were told they would be beaten themselves or shot if they tried to intervene.

Wilson asked James Mast "how he could let people do this to his family and he stated they were told (his wife) had a ‘demon’ inside her and her children would end up just like her if it was not taken care of," Wilson wrote in the probable cause statement.

Ethan Mast told investigators that on Saturday he and Aumen used a leather belt to beat the girl, the statement continued. She was then taken to a pond behind the home, where she was "dunked" in the water on a day when high temperatures were in the 40s.

Ethan Mast said everyone then returned to the victims’ home. It wasn’t clear when the child died. An autopsy will determine the cause of death, yet Knox said evidence indicated she was beaten to death.

"To have something of this magnitude happen in our sleepy little community is insane," Knox said.

Both Ethan Mast and Aumen are jailed without bond and don’t yet have attorneys, according to court records.

Duluth church doesn’t let blizzard stop their outdoor service

December 23, 2020 
John Cardinale

DULUTH, MN-- The winter storm Wednesday disrupted many holiday events in our area, but one local church decided they wouldn't let it get in the way of their Christmas service.

Eastridge Community Church decided the show must go on.

"This is our outdoor Christmas Eve service. We planned this out probably two months ago," said Pastor Justin Huibregtse.

An outdoor church service in a blizzard may not seem so surprising in the year 2020.

"We were starting to be aware of the storm around Sunday night," said Huibregtse.

With news of the storm, Huibregtse wanted to be able to offer something special to his congregants.

"We wanted to have an outside service to one be different. Number two if your uncomfortable being inside still we wanted to have an option for outside," said Huibregtse.

In total, around 20 people showed up Wednesday night. Those who showed up said the experience was unforgettable and they would do it again.

"Ooh definitely, I mean it's fun. It's making memories with friends and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else," said Emily Dimich, the Ministry Assistant.

An outside church service, during the pandemic.

"Living in Minnesota, we deal with the elements, and that's part of the fun of living here," said Dimich.

A Democrat member of Congress concluded his opening prayer for the 117th Congress with the phrase “Amen and Awomen” on Sunday.

The opening prayer was led by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, also a pastor at St. James United Methodist Church of Kansas City, Missouri.

Cleaver prayed to “The God known by many names and faith,” before concluding, “Amen and Awomen,” appearing to ascribe gender to the traditional “Amen” conclusion of a prayer.

The word Amen is derived from Greek and Hebrew used by Christians and Jews in prayer. It means “truly” or “it is so” and has nothing to do with gender.
