  1. A very interesting article here that suggests the development of a new religion based on the perpetuation of White Supremacy through Christianity. The Capitol Attack: White Supremacist Terrorism Meets Evangelical Christianity
  2. Certainly not. That would be dismissing the powers of Dr. Jesus.
  3. My wife has a friend that I have written about before. Can't say two sentences without throwing in Jesus and attributes anything she can't understand to her Gods plan. So today she came by the house, sat in her car while her granddaughters brought up a card and poinsettia for my wife. As I was thanking the girls she yelled and asked if I thought I had had Covid. I said I had tested positive a couple weeks ago. She stuck her hands out of the car and clapped. (She is a retired nurse and subscribes to the herd theory for ending Covid) She prattled on about Gods wil
  4. Was at a small grocery store yesterday and trying to get my cart around a couple who were in an intense discussion with a store worker in the middle of the aisle. They were quite oblivious to my presence and as I got within earshot .......... "God is sending a message with the virus!" came out of the mans mouth. I was wondering when the crazies would start going public with this sort of thing. It is kind of funny ......... an allegedly omnipotent being who must be living in Hubei province is using the scourge of a virus to send a message to the world. Sounds kind of Ja
  5. "You don't understand why these things happen but we know it was God's plan," Truelock told WHNS. "And that's the only thing that can get us through, 'cause we know it was God."Paisley's parents are hoping autopsy results will offer more insight into her death, WHNS reported. Tragic but the reporter obviously couldn't resist adding that last line.
  6. (CNN) - An entire town in Louisiana got a Christmas blessing thanks to holy water and an airplane. Cow Island and the neighboring farms got a dusting of 100 gallons of holy water just before Christmas, the Diocese of Lafayette announced Sunday. ..... and in the neighboring town of Rationality all citizens bowed their heads for a massive face palm.
  7. All of it. From the preparation to adjusting to the lack of oxygen and altitude, it was absolutely incredible. If you have even a passing thought of doing it, just do it. The thing is every person who has asked me about it thinks it must have been very expensive, it wasn't and could have been even cheaper had we not had a guide and porter. If you have any questions just PM me.
  8. My wife lost her mom when she was 12. It had a devastating impact on her and a lot of her motivations and behaviors are traceable to that event. Every once in a while she will mention "when I see mom in heaven". It presents a rare occasion with believers where you just have to nod and smile.
  9. You only have 2 posts and this one sounds like something from The Onion. If there is an ounce of sincerity in your post then it would be reasonable to assume you have not traveled much in which case this seems appropriate........ "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” - Mark Twain
  10. This popped up from someone in my Facebook feed. It's titled First Moments in Heaven. Seriously?
  11. My wife and I just returned from a trek in Nepal where we went to the Everest base camp. While waiting for our flight out of there we met a guy from Tennessee who had gotten a cold when he was just two days from completing the same trek but had to return while the rest of his group pushed on. During the conversation he revealed that the trek was actually a mission trip funded by his church to check out possible villages to "plant" church members to "spread the word". I didn't know whether to puke or roll my eyes and leave. Fortunately within a few minutes we got called to the air strip and lef
  12. Yesterday my wife and I ran into the woman in this story. Oh she had the greatest thing happen to her the previous day. Her elderly husband had exited a parking lot onto a state highway and went the wrong direction. He went several miles before realizing his mistake and did a U-turn in the middle of the road. Her god was so good to her husband that he delayed the stop lights on down the road so that there was no traffic and he didn't run into anyone. She said, "Just another example of how God works!" All I could think about was how a guy did the same thing near this w
  13. Today was my wife's annual play-on-the-lake day with her retired boss' uber-Christian family. Every year she invites him and his wife, their 4 adult sons and their bazillion children over to swim and tube. All they do when they're here is talk politics and religion. Not a damn one of them can complete a sentence without tossing in god or jesus. It's very annoying. So as usual, before they ate, the boss' wife said a prayer then dropped in something I'd never heard of before, a "God Sighting". I guess it's a feel good thing running rampant through the mega-churches and incites
  14. The Duckboat Accident on July 19 --Tia Coleman's thoughts as she struggled to swim to the surface of the lake were focused on her family. She and 10 of her relatives were on a family vacation from Indiana, taking a tour Thursday of Table Rock Lake near the Missouri tourist hotspot of Branson. A treacherous squall sank the boat, sending Coleman down into cold, deep water. She knew she had to go up to get to safety and to help her children. "I said, 'Lord, please, I've got to get to my babies. I've got to get to my b
