Bullshiat is the fake pearl of even greater price.

NephilimNexus: Bullshiat is the fake pearl of even greater price.


Came to say "of an even greater price is the fake pearl of bullshiat" but I can see you've basically got it covered.

Aren't the Branch Dildodians a part of this Mormon offshoot? I know they had their own versions of what they think the constitution is on them...

If only I wasn't so lazy.  I could have had an early
run on Q'religion and gotten some good tithes and offerings in for my required prayer mansion and private jet of penance.

I used to wonder but now am certain, Andy Kauffmann IS Q. It's the only way any of this makes sense.

The whole basis of the LDS religion is obvious bullschitt to begin with. Golden tablets, conveeeeeeniently unavailable for inspection, supposedly written in "Reformed Egyptian", which is well known to be bogus.

FTFA: QAnon is a conspiracy theory that, frankly, reads like word salad

Pffft. Like any of those yahoos would be caught dead anywhere near a salad.

Or reading. Religion seems like the perfect vehicle, come to think of it.

How to tell if you're in a death cult:

1. If you're expected to sacrifice your life for a political position or to "own the libs"...you might be in a death cult

Gotta love how vulnerable Mormonism is to these schisms and cults.  A religion teaching that everyone can be a prophet is gonna throw up some weird prophets.

What if things hiss SACRIFICE at me when I vape nicotine because they think I'm smoking marijuana and they mean it as a deadly threat?

That has to be voice hearing psychosis, right?

Aww all I can do is astrally project strong cravings for French fries.

If I could levitate salty snacks the world would be my hostage. No one wants to get salt in an eye.

Have you picked up or inherited anything recent? Like a sword or a ring? If so...find something exceptionally hot, like a volcano and toss it in there.

Or..do the things look like people? Check and see if they have gills on the sides of their necks. If they do...DO NOT GO WITH THEM.

/ if neither of those things...you might see if you can get a good description of the hissing things

TLDR; Why should anyone give a dusty fark about ANY religion?

Of course Q is a religion, it's supporters are brain dead wack jobs.

Do not see how this is any different from any other organized religion.

Because Scientology 2.0, now with semi-legitness borrowed from a religion that most people deem harmless, is a terrifying thought.

I live in Mormon Central. I hear these stories all the time about the tablet, stones, the hat, and everything else. It makes me go WTF, and then I have to remember that all other religions are similarly made-up.

At least the Church of the SubGenius offers eternal salvation or triple your money back.

If in the future, in whatever post civilization collapse society I end up in, I run into a guy who's all "Yeah I'm a Qist, but I'm not a hardcore one, I just go to the yearly Pence effigy burning" I'm still throwing rocks at him.
 
2021-09-15 12:01:21 AM  
Mormons and Qultists share a LOT in common. Doomsday preppin, antivax bullshiat, pretending to care about children while harming children. You name it.
 
2021-09-15 12:03:43 AM  
Isn't there a Satanic religion poised to take on Christianity?  And the Satanic Temple registers as athiest?  And they expect to be taken seriously?

This is not the thing to disregard.

Upon each sabbath, thou shalt curse the Deep State with the sacred words "How about these taxes?"
Upon each solstice and equinox, thou shalt burn in effigy and pantsuit Hillary Clinton.
Never shalt thou eat in a pizza restaurant with a basement.
Praise Qesus.

Bob offers a great deal, as it should be, and as it is written.

This is pretty smart.  If you consider the Q conspiracies as a religion, they look almost reasonable.  They're way less ridiculous than most of the stupid crap Christians believe, for example.

Conspiracy belief is nonsense.
Religion is legally protected nonsense.

It's obvious which is preferable.

I hate to defend the Mormon church, but

Splinter sects are not the same as the mainstream church based in Salt Lake.

Spice Must Flow: I hate to defend the Mormon church, but

Dropped the phone and hit Add Comment catching it

Splinter sects sometimes practice polygamy, but not the mainstream church. They excommunicate people for that today. People will argue with me about that until they are blue in the face, and can't grasp the distinction.

My only point is, don't tarnish the mainstream church with stuff spinoff groups are doing. The mainstream church has plenty of bad stuff people need to hear about, like covering up child abuse. (look up Elder Pace Memorandum).

Conflating this Q sect with the mainstream church continues an outdated stereotype, without bringing light to their cover-ups.

I came not to praise Caesar, but to ensure the prosecutors file the proper charges against the right group of people.

You got me curious about the Pace memo, but as soon as I saw it was about alleged "recovered memories" of Satanic Ritual Abuse in the early 1990s my cliché meter exploded, reminding me it's time for bed.

Hey dumbshiats. That guy who said he had Q clearance? Yeah, he was making that up. None of that shiat is real.

You're worshipping a 29-year-old virgin who just can't bear to move out of his parents' house, not a "CIA insider" trying to take down the Big Bad US Government.
 
2021-09-15 6:00:31 AM  
Why shouldn't it be a religion? It's batshiat crazy enough.

"Noah was a conspiracy theorist, then it started to rain."

Noah is fiction, like your idiotic conspiracy theories.

My doctrine is now the "Known Space" series  and I demand my religious liberty to hunt down and kill any lawbreaker and send their organs to the organ banks.
Is this how this works?
