End of Life Issues & Atheism...

I came back to the forum after an extended absence due to needing a place to vent about some family / end-of-life issues.  My elderly mother-in-law (who I love, respect, and adore), is in the hospital with dementia and the prognosis does not look good.I'm handling this as well as possible, I guess.  Trying to be there for my husband, etc.But I need to talk about some real anger I have toward theism.  My poor mother-in-law is wracked with intense pain due to a lung disease that makes it hard to…See More

Religion As Domestic Violence

Like many in my generation, I mostly remember Julia Sweeney as a cast member on Saturday Night Live during the show's early 90s heyday. Like some of her cast mates (Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon, Jon Lovitz), I hadn't heard much about her over the years. So I was fairly astonished to find out that she had gone on as a working actor, appearing in straight-to-video films and -- more importantly -- putting together a monologue entitled "Letting Go Of God".I listened to this one woman show over the…See More

Jesus of Nazareth: Cult Leader

Posted on June 29, 2010 at 10:00am 4 Comments

If you ask experts on cults what makes a cult a cult, one of the things they'll tell you is that cults demand separation from family, friends and society.



Which raises an interesting question. Positing (for the sake of argument) that there was a historical Jesus, would he qualify (by modern standards) as a cult leader?



Here's a little piece of scripture that suggests "yes".



Matthew 8:18-22…
