It would take a lot to convince me that Project Blitz was not a success even though it was good to see Justice Alito reject an application from a pastor who thinks his imaginary god is above the Law. Jason “10 commandments” Rapert is ready to attempt to increase the suffering of women in Arkansas. A court in Kentucky rules that COVID is not going to stop the religious indoctrination of children.
Cholera visited Scotland in 1853 and the local clergy proposed “prayer and fasting” as the best solution to get their god to change his plans. This of course would lower their resistance to disease. They were advised against this and told to go on a cleansing spree and stay at home. They did and many lives were saved. In 2020, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt is calling on everyone in the State to defeat COVID through “prayer and fasting”. I am somewhat familiar with Lincoln County in Alabama where the mayor is waiting on the Holy Spirit to tell him when wearing masks will be necessary.
Action is taken against a Catholic diocese for failing to protect minors from sexual abuse by clergy.
Love the Pastafarian reference and especially this quote:
“But try laughing at these myths. Life was created in a garden by an ‘omnipotent’ god who got so tired he had to rest on the seventh day. Or that people were created from different body parts of a god. Or that a man parted the sea for his people to pass. Or that a prophet incubated by magic, brought the dead to life and walked on water. Or that the highest religious desire of the followers of a religion that abhors idol and image worship, is to circumambulate and kiss a black stone.”
