Yeah, They Called It The Dark Ages

RighteousPeeps

This is from the same people that I did a piece on a while back. Perhaps you recall the “Lisa Davis, In Jail for Christ” sign? These people would praise their gods all the while they were oppressed. They would burn the heretics and witches. They would glady torture, maim, and kill those different from them. They would rejoice drenched in the blood of their enemies and their enemies would be many.

Either they know not what they do, or they are total friggin deranged lunatics. Either way I am sure they see themselves however, as pious pillars of the community.

  2. Methinks they are blind to the reality of what their dreamland theocracy would actually be like.

    …and too damned ignorant to learn from the bloody history of religion. Of course if they are aware of that fact, it opens up the door to the worst kind of malice.

  3. No doubt. I’m sure they’d pray while the heretics burn… Just to drown out the screams.

  4. Once you cross the line over into crazyland, they see the atrocities they commit as glorious gifts to the gods. I have seen many instances in history that turn my stomach. Regarding the Crusades an ex priest is quoted as saying: ” The most frightening of the inquisitors were the incorruptible ones; they tortured purely and simply for the love of God. They had no financial interest…they acted solely for the good of the cause. The very asceticism of most of these pious God-fearing Dominicans made them pathologically harsh. Used to pain themselves, they had a spiritual yearning to inflict pain on others. The screams of their victims were a kind of theological music to their ears, a proof that Satan was taking a pasting. They also rejoiced like children at the pope’s benevolence towards them; he gave them the same indulgences he gave the knights who went to the crusades.”

  8. I’m not so sure. Many genuine psychopaths are quite lovable. They’re charismatic. Cruz is a weed

  10. Good x-ians in the eyes of many. Or great Jihadis. This is why I often say “ain’t nuthin scares me more than a bunch of good x-ians.” (or insert religion here)

    …and they walk among us.

  11. Makes me a fucking atheist. Once you understand the history a little, once you read about it in their magic books, once you gaze into the eyes of the devout… I don’t want any of that shit.

  12. I made a comment to James (Isiahproject) that evangelicals like him were little more than ISIS on paved streets. He didn’t like that observation.

  13. Yeah. Victoria told me about it. Looks like the poor kid hasn’t seen this bastard more than twice her whole life. If his daughter is terrified of him, so too must we be.

  16. Haven’t met that one. Probably a good thing.

    They don’t care much to have the reality of their position pointed out to them. People become so attached to their religious identities, they cannot see what they have become. Perspective…

  17. I could not get it to play, but I take it the girl shied away from the hug? Could be she didn’t get something she wanted, or something much deeper and concerning. I’d not want to be a kid growing up in a fundie republican house I can tell you that much.

  18. Dayum! Thats a pretty serious attempt at a shrug off, and Cruz just kept insisting he got what he wanted. Somehow I feel like I need a shower.

  19. Cruz is actually worse, and more dangerous than Trump. The dude is absolutely psychotic.

  20. I have noticed when Cruz is campaigning he takes a very practiced determined approach. He uses body language and hand movements in an aggressive way. Freaks me out. You can tell it is an act designed to give him some sort of percieved authority or some shit…

    Then of course you have to weigh the words coming out of his mouth. The whole thing adds up to crazytown IMO.

  22. The problem is always who gets to define what righteous is? The fundamentalist really just doesn’t understand what consensus actually means and thus don’t ask other people for their opinions. lol

  23. Exactly. They can pretty much agree with their magic books, but the magic book is so convoluted and open to interpretation everyone soon has their own ideas on this or that.

    The game plays out such that he who happens to be the most devious and brutal, becomes the most righteous.

    Consensus? I do not think they know or understand the word. Unless that is when everyone nods in agreement with the preacher.
