  1. I just saw this while reading news articles online, and found it rather interesting. It's not very often that the Brethren are in the media, however, it is not at all surprising that they're willing to make use of funds they are not entitled to. http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/exclusive-brethren-federal-labor-calls-for-investigation-into-funding-of-extremist-cult-schools-20160707-gq0jq5
  2. I read this blog post the other day: http://www.catholicgentleman.net/2016/03/a-prayer-to-st-joseph-before-work/ It was the feast of St. Joseph (as in Mary's husband) Part of it says: It is saying that we should all work! God ordained it to teach your child a craft and to work for you child(ren) and wife! And I will never understand why the grifting fundies don't believe that work isn't a curse. earning a living and taking care of your family is a noble thing. And notice Joseph taught Jesus a craft- carpentry- not preaching. Jesus learned that on his own because Ma (Mary) and
  3. I'm a big fan of Dear Prudence. This was posted yesterday. Q. My brother-in-law is God’s telemarketer.: My husband’s brother has done well in life—he has a great job, comfortable life, and a beautiful family. He recently decided to give up his job and home to go on a mission to serve as year-round staff at a wilderness Christian camp, family in tow. To do this, he must fundraise about $40,000 a year and recently approached my husband for funds. Neither of us wants to donate as we feel like this mission is motivated as much by his desire get back to the outdoorsman lifestyle he love
  4. Because JESUS!! Some mission trip to Peru and she needs the money by May next year. So don't give her Christmas or birthday gifts. instead help fund God's daughter.
  5. Reverend Creflo Dollar has lived up to his name, asking for 200,000 people to each pledge "$300 dollars or more" to pay for the purchase of a $65 million Gulfstream G650--which happens to be the fastest private jet ever made. Why, you ask? Well, to further the kingdom of God and help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, of course! Seriously, this guy is making John Shrader look like a rank amateur at grifting. http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/13/living/cr ... -jet-feat/
  6. The Friendly Atheist has covered the creepy, patronizing way that one JW leader is asking for donations. To me, Stephen Lett (the leader in the video, one of the JW's "governing body" who they believe is one of Jehovah's chosen representatives on earth) really does sound like he is talking to a slow witted child when he speaks. It's almost as if the leaders themselves think that only a stupid person would follow them. The JWs like to think of themselves as being separate and better than other Christians, but does anyone who watched the video actually think that this guy's plea for donatio

    Purpose of fundraiser

    I am devastated to read a recent post by a younger (19 year old) relative whose parents in the past ten years have changed from born/baptized/raised Presbyterian to 25 years of nothing, to Methodist and now Baptist. She works part time with the (physical) church and posted about a fundraiser for a conference that will help "train pastors to spread the Word of God in an area that is heavily burdened with other religions in India." I am sick to my stomach. It's so presumptive and arrogant. And if I say anything about it, said relatives would all FLIP out and de-friend me
  8. outoftheorthobox.blogspot.com She's asking for $25 a month for an ad, $25 for a guest post or $75 for four guest posts. I wonder if she's going to get anything given that she only posts once a week at the most. I think she'd like to be the Jewish version of the old Raising Olives (when RO was posting all the time and had lots of sponsors and partners), but it's going to be hard for her to build that kind of following when there aren't the same numbers of Jewish fundies online.
  9. The arrogance of these megachurch preachers is amazing. Why can't he pay a week of his salary to buy the 50,000 new blades? But hey he speaks for god and dictates what god will give you if you do donate. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/06/2 ... elieve-why ishop I.V. Hilliard of the New Light Christian Church has his Texas congregation talking after he sent out a newsletter asking his congregation to donate $50,000. Was he starting a food pantry? Working with disadvantaged families? Moving people out of homelessness? Oh, no. He needs new blades for hi
  10. I subscribe to the Above Rubies email group (had to be dishonest to get accepted, but I was really curious to see what sort of things get said on there). This was posted recently with the subject "Family Seriously Questioning Our Life Choices", and I thought it was sad, mainly because her family appears to be suffering from their choices.
  11. There was an ad in my local paper from the FLDS. Apparently they ran an ad in a bunch of papers. Friday it was in the Washington Post, NY Times, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Salt Lake Tribune, Idaho Statesman, among others. Basically it's telling people to repent and go to their website flds.org where you can order various proclamations and such. If you go to the website, that's all it is - an order form. So...are they trying to convert the rest of us? Or just get money out of us?

    Jewish Fundie Question

    My neighborhood fundies are Orthodox Jews. Generally they keep to themselves, but there is one odd thing I've noticed over the years we have lived here. Every sabbath, there is a group of Bar Mitzvah aged boys (all early teens and adorably awkward) who ride my train and will go around asking various riders if they are Jewish. This has happened to me once, and this happens to my husband on a regular basis. One time I overheard them asking is question to someone who answered "yes, they are Jewish" and they boys started asking him if he was going to services at night, if he had a bar mitzvah, and
