Eye catching image intended to make me seem more authoritative.
This tweet piqued my interest in how Dawkins might have described the omnibeast worshipped by so many.
@sandrider69: @RichardDawkins I have just read the opening salvo of Chapter 2 The God Delusion. There cannot be a more entertaining paragraph anywhere!
Excerpted from “The God Delusion”, by Richard Dawkins
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. Those of us schooled from infancy in his ways can be desensitized to their horror.
Those two sentences from that paragraph ring true. Dawkins accurately describes characteristics of the omnibeast as it and its acts are described in its own holy anthology.
It still gives me pause to experience the high degree of denial, dismissal, and irrational reasoning necessary to describe the beast as king, gentle, and loving. Amazing.
Christian Today offers us this gem of good christians spreading the word while, I hope, not spreading STDs.
Christian swingers: ‘God uses us to spread his word’
While most would regard sexual promiscuity as conflicting with their religious beliefs, the Paraves, who both compete as bodybuilders, believe that they can use their newfound connections to share the Gospel.
Let’s not forget that christianity also has something for the loving monogamous couple.

Saw this on Twitter. Chuckled and reflected on the elegance of a fundamental truth.
@sherlockmichael: Science is not inherently anti-religion, reality is; science is merely the means by which reality is brought to light.
This is wrong on so many levels. The video itself is unsurprising, typical, and boring. The possessed woman was unemployed for 6.5 years, loves sex, and claims much anger.
Oh, the demon that entered through sex is the cause. Condom, STD, birth control jokes anyone?
Of course, that isn’t pitiful enough, but this might be. Put on your favorite full face helmet, Google the phrase “sexually transmitted demons”, start head slapping.
DELIVERANCE from Demon that Entered Through Sex
There’s no mention of religion in the article. Still, a high school administrator has female students in class bend over for a dress code check. I judge it likely that god, the bible, and religious puritanism are at the bottom of this.
OK high school administrator shames female students with dress code, calls them ‘skanks’
