OK, I thought when I came across a website claiming that Satan was going to use a great "Global Brain" to take over the world and he would use demon possessed robots to help him that I had come upon a one-off website in the fringe of right-wing lunacy. I was wrong. Apparently, there are … Continue reading Demon Possessed Robots Part 2
Sometimes, even I am amazed at how far down the religious right rabbit hole goes. I admit that I stop at some strange and bewildering websites created by wacky Fundagelicals, but Rick Wiles founder of TruNews has managed to dig the hole even deeper. Rick Wiles loves him some conspiracy theories. He's big on the … Continue reading Demon Possessed Robots- – – Oh My!
I'm sorry to say that Fundagelicals who serve the God who can create the universe just can't seem to create a watchable film. You can cringe through A Thief in the Night, or sit stupefied by the weirdness of The Omega Code. Watch any Christian film and experience the disappointment that is total mediocrity fused … Continue reading Christian films are so bad!
When was the last time you went to an old fashioned book burning? Maybe when Harry Potter first came out? Fundagelicals always loved them some good old fashioned bonfires to burn up ungodly stuff. In High School, I had a friend who burned his Queen albums several times. He would burn them, backslide, buy them … Continue reading Why Fundagelicals Don’t Burn Books Anymore.
Sitting in chapel at my Christian school, I was guaranteed at least once a week to hear about the evils of rock music. Our school principal would get up on stage and in a loud booming voice declare "ROCK MUSIC IS EVIL, IT IS FROM THE PIT OF HELL, IT IS SIN, IT IS WRONG!" … Continue reading Rock Music Is EVIL!!!
Satan, rock-n-roll, and liberal Hollywood are three things Fundagelicals love to rant about. I grew up listening to my Southern Baptist preacher warn against the evils of rock-n-roll and attended a private Christian High School that warned about the demons infesting the music industry, movie industry, and Magic 8 Ball industry. Thanks to Right Wing … Continue reading Demons, Rock-n-roll, and Hollywood: A Fundagelical Conspiracy Trifecta!
In 1856, William Ramsey wrote a book called “Spiritualism, a Satanic Delusion, and a Sign of the Times.” In this investigation of the spiritualism phenomenon of the late 1800s, Ramsey inserts a piece of topsy-turvy logic that will become part of the Fundagelical arsenal of twisted thinking used to explain conspiracies theories. Here is the … Continue reading The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist
I read a lot of religious websites. Sometimes, you just fall down a rabbit hole. I stumble on stuff that makes me go WTF! Today's little piece of Fundagelical weirdness comes from a Website called Dreams of Dunamis In a post dated Oct 1, 2013, the writer explains how to remove demonic doorways and demons … Continue reading Demonology: A Fundagelical Rabbit Hole
I lived through the Satanic Panic of the 1980s. Television news shows and documentaries were full of stories about the rise of Satanism among young people. 20/20 did a segment called The Devil Worshipers. Documentaries like Escaping Satan's Web terrified parents. At my Christian school and church, I received Chick Tracts that warned us how … Continue reading The Occult- The Twisted World of Jack Chick
Growing up Fundagelical, I was exposed to “Chick Tracts.” For the uninitiated, these were small pamphlets with cartoons that were used to evangelize. Jack Chick, the originator of these tracts, helped to promote so much of what is wrong with Fundamentalism and Evangelicalism today. He didn’t stop at just sharing a simple gospel message; he … Continue reading Death Cookie- The Twisted World of Jack Chick
