Religion impacts negatively on the kindness of youngsters

Comments Off on Religion impacts negatively on the kindness of youngsters

A new study that shows that children from religious families are less kind and more punitive than those from non-religious households reminded me of Ryan Duffey Strode, above, a North Carolina kid who was so filled with the loving spirit of Jesus that he told his headmaster ‘you will go to Hell’.

Strode, then aged 10, finally had to be removed from his elementary school in Marion in the late 1980s for abusive behaviour, along with his two equally god-addled siblings. They were given to calling fellow pupils “whores” and “fornicators” and threatening them with hellfire.

From Wikipedia:

Strode and his 5-year-old brother Matthew (accompanied by 6-year-old sister Pepper), began preaching Bible scripture outside their Marion, North Carolina elementary school. The boys’ idiosyncratic style of preaching consisted of bellowing rote-learned excerpts from the Bible (particularly those pertaining to hell and whoredom) at their classmates.

Anyway, back to the study. According to this report, academics from seven universities across the world studied Christian, Muslim and non-religious children to test the relationship between religion and morality.

They found that religious belief is a negative influence on children’s altruism.

Said the authors of “The Negative Association Between Religiousness and Children’s Altruism Across the World”, published this week …read more

Gavin McInnes On Moving To CRTV: ‘I Want To Make My Message Mainstream’

Comments Off on Gavin McInnes On Moving To CRTV: ‘I Want To Make My Message Mainstream’

Gavin McInnes, former Rebel Media personality and founder of the bizarre right-wing fraternity Proud Boys, revealed last night that he left Rebel Media for the online conservative network CRTV because he hopes to take his so-called “Western chauvinist” anti-feminism message mainstream.

During the debut episode of his new CRTV program, “Get Off My Lawn,” McInnes explained his motivations for leaving Rebel Media, a digital media company Vice (which McInnes co-founded) called “an international platform for far-right and alt-right figures.”

“I want to climb aboard this CRTV ship. I want to make my message mainstream,” McInnes said.

That message has “always been dads,” he said, referring to the idea that fathers should be at the head of social structures.

“You know when you say smash the patriarchy? That’s me. Don’t smash me. I want to rebuild the patriarchy,” McInnes said.

In the second half of his show, McInnes restated, “This is what I’m going to be doing at CRTV and I hope it inspires you to become a dad. Ladies, I hope it inspires you to become a housewife.”

McInnes is the self-described leader of a strange Alt-Right sympathizing fraternity called the Proud Boys, whose initiation rituals include new members being required to <a target="_blank" …read more

Those Who Don’t Spend All Their Money On Jim Bakker’s Food Buckets Will Answer To God

Comments Off on Those Who Don’t Spend All Their Money On Jim Bakker’s Food Buckets Will Answer To God

While hawking his survival food buckets on his television program today, prepper pastor Jim Bakker encouraged the wealthy to buy a million dollars worth of his products because their money will soon be worthless when the End Times begin and the financial system collapses.

Guest John Shorey told viewers to stock up on Bakker’s food buckets and not to worry about running out because God will miraculously refill them as needed.

“When you empty a bucket of food,” Shorey said, “trust God to refill it.”

When Shorey told those who “have the means to buy 100 buckets of food” to “buy 100 buckets of food” and give them to local churches, Bakker chimed in to urge millionaires to buy as much food as they can afford.

“Do a million dollars worth of food, I’m serious,” Bakker said. “If they’re rich, their money is going [away] anyway, John. It’s not going to be worth anything. The crash is coming, so why not sow it into the Lord?”

Shorey agreed, adding that those who don’t use all their money to buy as much food as they can will have to answer to God.

“The Bible says that our riches will be a witness against us,” Shorey said. …read more

Secular Coalition Says Congress Has No Business Building Churches

Comments Off on Secular Coalition Says Congress Has No Business Building Churches

Washington, DC — The Secular Coalition for America released a statement today condemning a bill recently introduced in the Senate (S.1823) which would amend the Stafford Act to allow churches and other houses of worship to receive grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the repair, restoration, and replacement of damaged facilities. The Senate bill, introduced by Senators Blunt (R-MO), Cornyn (R-TX), Lankford (R-OK), and Cruz (R-TX) is a companion to (H.R. 2405) which was reintroduced by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) earlier this year.

“The government cannot compel taxpayers to support religious institutions,” said Larry T. Decker, Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America. “True religious freedom is the right for all Americans to decide for themselves what houses of worship if any, they support with their money. This legislation violates this fundamental freedom, protected by the Establishment Clause, by using taxpayer money to literally build churches. Our hearts go out to all who were impacted by the recent hurricanes but religious freedom is a value that must be defended in the best and worst of times. This legislation, however well-intentioned, will rebuild houses of worship by knocking down the wall of separation between church and …read more

Rick Joyner: Natural Disasters Are The Result Of Kicking God Out Of America

Comments Off on Rick Joyner: Natural Disasters Are The Result Of Kicking God Out Of America

In a video posted on his Facebook page yesterday, right-wing pastor Rick Joyner said it should be no surprise to see America battered by natural disasters considering that God had been kicked out of this nation decades ago.

Joyner said that America has “actually fallen to the ultimate depravity of nations” as countless citizens embrace “perversions and delusions and separations from God.”

He claimed that “you could measure the meltdown of morality, integrity, the increasing dysfunction of our governments and just about so many other things that are going on now to the time when we basically started saying, ‘God, get out of our life. We don’t want you mentioned in our books, in our histories, we don’t want anyone to use your name or pray in your name, we just want you out of here.’”

“It’s amazing, hurricanes strike us, earthquakes, everything else, and everyone’s first response is, ‘Where is God when this happens?’” Joyner added. “Well, we told him to leave. That’s where he is.”

US cult leader faces lawsuit over alleged slave labour

Comments Off on US cult leader faces lawsuit over alleged slave labour

Royall Jenkins, above, ‘spiritual’ leader of an organisation called The Value Creators and a man who likes to be call ‘Allah’, is being sued by a woman who claims she was forced to work without pay for a decade — from the age of 11.

According to this report, Kendra Ross, who is now 26, alleges that until 2012, when she “gathered her courage and strength to escape”, she was the victim of human trafficking at the hands of Royall Jenkins, founder of the United Nation of Islam (UNOI), which later changed its name to The Value Creators.

According to the lawsuit, Jenkins formed the UNOI after “angels and/or scientists” abducted him and escorted him through the galaxy on a spaceship and instructed him on how to govern earth.
The suit contends that he subsequently told his followers to refer to him as “Allah on Earth”, “Allah in Person”, or “The Supreme Being”.

The suit, filed in US District Court in Kansas City, estimates that Ross performed many thousands of hours of uncompensated labour for the group, and this report says she is seeking $2.2 million in damages as well as punitive damages.

Ross says was was forced to work …read more
