Maybe we should build a pyramid and slaughter humans in hopes of ending climate change?



Why didn't they "connect" when they did shrooms and DMT?

And you belittle my culture because we did connect?

Pentecostal Christians Are Burning Australia’s Sacred Aboriginal Objects

Vandalism for Jesus: Pentecostal Christians are burning Australia’s sacred Aboriginal objects because they believe that “traditional Aboriginal culture is a type of devil worship.”
ABC News Australia reports:
An investigation by Background Briefing has uncovered dramatic scenes in the Kimberley region, where Aboriginal followers of a Tongan-born preacher have set fire to artefacts considered sacred by many local elders, and dismantled and burned a spiritual law ground.
According to the report, the vandalism of sacred objects is being conducted by the followers of Pastor Ana Makahununiu, a young Pentecostal preacher who claims that “traditional Aboriginal culture is a type of devil worship.”


The Daily Mail notes:
Ana Makahununiu arrived in Wangkatjungkam, 100km south-east of Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia’s Kimberley, in 2015.
The community is a settlement of 180 predominately Wangkatjungka-speaking people with strong links to their desert culture.
But after the arrival of the young preacher, dozens were ‘born again’ and baptised as Christians.
ABC News Australia explains:
A year after Ms Makahununiu arrived, her followers built a bonfire to destroy ‘satanic’ objects they thought were cursing their community, and filmed the process…
A grainy video of the bonfire shows people cheering as objects are thrown into the flames and black smoke billows into the air.
“For many years we have been deceived by Satan and his demonic beings,” an unidentified man narrates as the fire burns.
“Now we throw away all the things that have been keeping us in bondage and slavery.”

We had a similar episode in Canada, a few years ago, where a minister ordered the destruction of a sweat lodge on a reserve. http://religionnerd.com/2011/02/07/c...n-sweat-lodge/

Theology
Nation's Atheists Standing Strong Despite Existence Of Bacon

January 16th, 2019

U.S.—According to a recent report, the nation's atheists are still stubbornly refusing to admit the reality of God despite the fact that bacon clearly exists in our universe.


Christians had anticipated that atheism would be eradicated as knowledge of bacon's existence continued to grow, but so far, it hasn't made a dent.

"It doesn't make any sense," said apologist William Lane Craig. "To hold that there is no God and yet acknowledge the reality that bacon exists is well beyond the realm of logic and reason---it takes a whole lot of faith to be an atheist."

"There's crispy bacon, soft bacon, peppered bacon, bacon jerky, bacon-wrapped foods, bacon burgers---the evidence is undeniable."

Craig often engages atheists in debate. Sometimes, he simply puts a picture of bacon up on the video projector and says, "I rest my case." Other apologists have adopted this method, but to little effect so far.

At publishing time, reports had indicated that atheists are well aware of the existence of fish tacos, and yet still somehow deny that God is real.

We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana, as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes to be changed into WINE; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy!

10 Evangelicals Arrested After Killing 7 During Violent Exorcism Rituals In Panama

More of that Christian love: Authorities in Panama report 10 evangelicals have been arrested for the murder of six children and one adult, and the torture of 14 others, during violent exorcism rituals.
NBC News reports:
Prosecutors in Panama say they have found the corpses of six children and one adult in a clandestine burial pit where a sect had tortured indigenous people in exorcism rituals.
Prosecutors said Thursday the dead minors ranged in age from one to 17, and that the adult was a pregnant woman who was the mother of five of the kids.
The Guardian reports:
Prosecutors in Panama have found the corpses of six children and one adult in a clandestine burial pit where a religious sect was found torturing indigenous people in exorcism rituals.
Prosecutors said the victims ranged in age from one to 17, and that the adult was a pregnant woman who was the mother of five of the children.
The pit was found at a remote camp near the Caribbean coast where on Wednesday police arrested 10 members of an evangelical sect known as “The New Light of God”.
According to reports, 10 “lay preachers” from “The New Light of God” church were arrested and are accused of staging violent and sometimes deadly exorcism rituals where indigenous peoples were asked to “repent or die.”
Panama prosecutor Rafael Baloyes said the members of the evangelical church targeted the remote Ngabé Buglé indigenous community near the Caribbean coast. Describing the horror, Baylores said:
They were performing a ritual inside the structure. In that ritual, there were people being held against their will, being mistreated. All of these rites were aimed at killing them, if they did not repent their sins.

Christians BANNED! Western Australian community takes radical step to stop God botherers from trying to convert them to Christianity

Aboriginal elders in a remote Western Australian community want to ban Christians from visiting their region.
The indigenous community said the religious organisation was attempting to convert them to Christianity and away from their traditional culture.


The group of elders asked WA's discrimination watchdog if they were allowed to forbid the Christian group - who wasn't identified - from their community.
Equal Opportunity Commissioner of WA John Byrne said the religious group most likely wouldn't be able to lodge a complaint if they were to be banished.

Oklahoma Pastor Busted Running White Supremacist Prostitution Ring

“Aryan Pride” for Jesus: An Oklahoma pastor is under arrest after being caught running a prostitution ring with a white supremacist.
Pastor Walter Eugene Brazington Jr. is “being charged with procuring for prostitution and possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony,” according to a report from Tulsa World.
The Oklahoma pastor was caught running a massage parlor that was being used as a front for a prostitution ring. His partner in crime was white supremacist Tiffany Roach, an HIV positive prostitute who calls herself “Aryan Woman” and professes to have “Whitegirl Pride.
Brazington is listed as an apostle and prophet for the All Nations Evangelistic Team, a preaching group based in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
The felony charges are a result of a sting operation by Oklahoma police. Skeptic Review reports:
Acting on a tip of unusual activity at a strip mall in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, police began monitoring a business that only had a neon “open” sign in the window and an unusual amount of activity noted by neighboring businesses.
The investigation started in September when investigators identified classified ads with women offering massages. A phone number connected to the ads was linked to All Nations Evangelistic Team.
