How I Let an Idiot Podcast Pastor Derail My Writing




Yesterday in a discussion here at FJ, I linked to something by Pastor Joe Schimmel.  I know I've talked about him before regarding a different movie.  Someone at that time suggested a thread.  I thought I'd blog about things first.  Depending on reactions, I might start a thread.  If you enjoy fundie rabbit holes of the angry, judgemental pastor variety - take the rescue ferrets and head on in.

I not only listened to this guy - I went back and listened to his podcast history. (Podcast/radio here:  http://www.goodfightradio.org/ )   He is very focused on 'gay agendas.'  Very focused on satanic worship, demons, and can trace all sorts of new age stuff in his warped mind to Aleister Crowley.  But I let him get in my head.  I was trying to be the good Christian.  I was, admittedly, on a path to fundie light.  A few years ago I tossed 'religion' to the side.  I've elevated past narrow-minded, legalistic thinking.  

Joe is very big into seeing the "Gay Agenda" everywhere. (a sample of his entries on homosexuality:  http://cupofjoe.goodfight.org/tag/homosexuality/ )  And Satan.  And demons.  ( sample of his bits about the occult and such:  http://cupofjoe.goodfight.org/category/cults-occult/  )  He has videos out there about 'They Sold Their Souls to Rock and Roll.'  and "Hollywood's War on God."  http://cupofjoe.goodfight.org/video/ (more videos at the link)

This morning I went looking for a quote from him about Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight books.  And yup - I found what I was looking f



Stephenie Meyer, author of Twilight, states, “Bella and Edward [the vampire] were, quite literally, voices in my head. They simply wouldn’t shut up. I’d stay up as late as I could stand trying to get all the stuff in my mind typed out, and then crawl, exhausted, into bed… only to have another conversation start in my head.” (Source: www.stepheniemeyer.com)

Those who desire to remain true to Christ must be ever vigilant to discern the tactics of the devil, lest they succumb to devilish doctrines taught by seducing spirits. While Satan appears to reward few of his servants well (albeit, temporarily)… Stephenie Meyer went from never having written a single book to becoming a renown author. J. K. Rowling went from rags to riches, from collecting welfare stamps to becoming the “richest woman in the world”… Jesus warned,

e/influence (one I have happily thrown off) was his discussing authors - fiction authors - who 'channel' and 'hear voices.'  Yes, channeling is a word I have used in the past when working with a character.  I write fiction as a hobby.  I lack words to describe my relationship with first person point of view characters in particular in talking to non-writing types of people.  


Sorry - had to enter to be able to do what I wanted to there.

Joe has his material spread across a few websites.  Don't miss this one https://www.goodfight.org/  He has videos on this one discussing Hollywood Movies.  Click on the "theater" button to explore that one.

Noooo, it's me, I'm responsible! :pb_lol:

I need to check out the "They sold their souls to rock and roll..." I'm predicting something about backbeats in there.

      Surprised that it was these two who won the game of Twin Roulette between the G2 Dugglings. As a twin mom myself, I was under the impression that fraternal twinning is passed down through the mom, due to it being a case of hyper-ovulation. And I'm guessing it's fraternal twins because they did a double gender reveal--if they were identical, they'd know the kiddos were boy/boy or girl/girl.

      ETA: What will this be, 4 under 4 for them? Yikes on bikes.

      There are some versions of the bible that clean up the story of Jacob and Joseph, so that the reader is missing something. Joseph wasn't the arbitrary favorite. He was one of the only biological children of Jacob and Rachel. His brothers who plotted against him were all half brothers. Jacob wanted to marry Rachel, but was tricked into marrying her older sister Leah. The Lord made Leah very fertile to make up for it. Rachel was almost barren until Joseph. (In the meantime, Rachel and Leah both sent their maid servants to have children by Jacob.) Jacob and Rachel were eventually able to have 2 biological children: Joseph and later, Benjamin. Benjamin was too young and not apart of selling Joseph into Egypt. Some versions clean up the story to just say that Rachel and Leah are the bio-moms of all the kids and Joseph just happens to be the favorite, but this is incorrect. 

      Jacob's father-in-law arguably started the problem when he tricked Jacob into marrying the wrong sister. 

      They really don't do Biblical marriage like they used to.

      I think the best part of Gary's retelling is struggling to remember any of the names or relationships, that's what people look for in a preacher. Although I can see all the women in the story going through all the kids names until they hit the right one!
