"I think the fear mongering is simply a way of obtaining power."
"I think the fear mongering is simply a way of obtaining power"
I realize that quote cite above is laughable, but what got me is the use of "world view". Whenever you hear "world view" you can be 99% sure you are listening to evangelical Christian apologetics.
The World's Leading Christian Experts
Race fears exploited for tax cuts for the rich
Now, Christianity co-opted to resist environmental regulation
What's next? Gay marriage used against health care? "Crunk dancing leads to capital gains taxes!" What preposterous connection won't conservatives buy in to?
What do you mean now?
I can't remember a point where christianity wasn't a shill for neoconservatism.
Secular charity and responsibility is a threat, because our faith is predicated on the idea that its impossible to be a good person unless you agree with everything we say. If you can be good or happy without God, we're screwed. Plus, we totally sold out to the moneylenders, so now Jesus is all about shielding toxic polluters from liability and CO2 is part of the Holy Trinity.
The industrial revolution hasn't wrought one one hundredth of the devastation to our society the information age will have when it's done with us. One gave us the means to destroy ourselves, the other will give us the will.

As an institution, christianity needs to stop lying to itself and just admit they're all about greed and narcissism, because they're not really fooling anyone but themselves.
Christianity as an institution has become so divorced from Christianity as a philosophy that they're almost mutually exclusive. The best Christians I know are all people who never go to church.
Dr James Tonkowich: Doctor of ministry in christian spirituality. His dissertation was: "Worship, a study guide for small groups"
From the title I was expecting a how-to video on kicking heroin.
I thought the same, then thought "Maybe its a video warning kids about the dangers of envy and avarice. You know, like the Bible actually teaches."
I really should know better by now. If there's a fundamentalist video titled "Loving Thy Neighbor", I should just assume its about cleansing your neighborhood of non-believers and minorities through harassment. I mean, I've already seen the non-ironic use of "Blessed are the peacemakers" to support military escalation and war against the middle east.
I myself was expecting something about green dragon, the tincture of cannabis and alcohol... I wonder if they know the other meaning of that phrase. Oh wait, they're fucking morons, of course they don't know.
BEWARE! Beware of the big green dragon that sits on your doorstep!
Terrifying images abound. Al Gore! Little girl hugging tree! The eye of Sauron!
The tree is a symbol of pagan worship. If you ever see children placing druidic symbols and charms (stars, precious metals, lights, etc) on a pagan tree, especially if its near the time of a solstice, make sure to tear it down at all costs! You should instead replace it with a large wooden cross for Jesus, and light that to show children the true meaning of Christmas.
Jesus would nail himself to a cross just to get the fuck away from these people.
