Religion of peace. Amiright?

You do NOT talk about Grope Club!

Organized religion is the oldest scam on the planet.  And they fell for it!

Jesus. One hedonism headline and the queue gets all gropey.

First rule of Grope Church is NEVER talk about Grope Church.
The second rule is, wash your hands frequently...

8th rule of Grope Church: If this is your first night, you have to (be) groped(d).

Once again proving that you can wrap anything... literally, anything... in the flag and/or Jesus and enough people will buy into it to make it worthwhile.

/We need more people who are willing to fully commit, Jim Jones style, to helping these true believers reach their goals and leave the rest of us the fark alone.

Agreed.

FTA: "They even threatened to publicize the accusers' "sins," revealed to the men during private counseling sessions"

The answer to how low can these types of people go.

Sheesh, why does someone have to take a manly drama and put homosexual subtext in it?
 
2017-09-13 08:16:34 AM  
I am simultaneously repulsed and mesmerized. I can see this dovetailing very neatly with the far rights, training true believers to go to war with the dark people.

Horny jesus freak using martial arts as an outlet

Pastor is just another word for molester.

TFA says he groped "adult women". Where's the homosexual subtext? Or am I missing the joke?

One thing I shall always find annoying is when people think Fight Club was glorifying ridiculous, out-of-control masculinity, when it was actually making fun of it.

I assumed he was groping kids too.

So I made the mistake of reading the comments in TFA.  Farking atheists in thecomments are blaming the victims....unbelievable.

That happens a lot. How many people did you know who stated slicking their hair back and talking about how ruthless they are in business after Wall Street? Gordon Gecko wasn't the protagonist in that story. the same with the Wolf of Wall Street. Scorcese said he made Goodfellas to show what amoral animals those mob guys were, although he sure made it look like a lot of fun, so I kind of question his sincerity.

How else are you supposed to get your own cult started?

But enough about Christian pastors and Republicans.
 
2017-09-13 09:05:50 AM  
both he and executive pastor Dr. Al Ogden demanded silence about these accusations.

This is sadly par for the course for many churches. Leaders that do that kind of shiat need to be held accountable.

/preferrably with a log chain

Is their any limit on idiots injecting Christianity into everything? That's the most unlikely marriage of two disparate things I've ever seen. "Love thy neighbor as thyself," but also train rigorously in martial arts to fark up your neighbor should any conflict arise.

It's like people use Christianity as a flavoring sauce. "What about fascism?" "Man, you know that doesn't taste good." "Well, hell, throw some Christianity on it." "Well, I guess..."

Just to be clear, not ALL priests and pastors and assorted forms of holy men are sexual predators.  But every single one of them wants to take your money.

Sure.  Like any other organization they have costs.  Other than the bake sale, churches have to pass around the collection plate for operational costs. Legit costs - keeping the building up, paying for reasonable living expenses for the pastor/minister/holy man/ rabbi/etc., and any church charities, etc.  Non-reasonable: jets, mansions, defense funds for pedo priests, political causes.  There are good churches and bad churches.  I don't see this as a controversial position but this is Fark.

I couldn't get through the first two paragraphs, there's just too much inane snark. Does anyone have an actual news article instead of a shiatty blog?

I disagree. All religion is poison to the human mind.
