Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy

We have all been there and done it. Sitting on a couch, consoling a friend over a terrible mistake that has been made, and used our own personal flaws as a buffer before giving advice on what to do about the mess at hand. This is self deprecation, and while a very useful tool while navigating social situations, there is a fine line between using it as a tool, and using it as a facetious psychological mind fuck.



Usually, self deprecation is a general statement of flaws, like,"Well,…

Police steal photos

From this article in The Atlantic:

After an automobile crash, a young woman suspected of drunk driving was getting checked out for injuries. A California Highway Patrol officer, five-year veteran Sean Harrington, had her cell phone. He found a photo of her in a bikini. So he allegedly sent the image to his own…

Treatise on Morality.

Every time I hear, "How can you be moral without god?", I know what the bible tells of god's behaviors and the behaviors of followers of religion. I see those who preach, teach and practice hate. Battered women who try to live under the influence of religion, Christian and Islam, learn the things that will maintain and perpetuate family violence. If you have doubts, just look at the morality of god's acts in the bible and morality of families living according to biblical teachings. I want…

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

Quotation-Leo-Tolstoy-sacrifice-vanity-Meetville-Quotes-138006

For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than…

The Divine Emotional Guilt Trip Of Suffering

"Well aren't you just a big boy!"

Introduction to When Green the Grass Did Grow Around the Fumbles of Desire

 

            I am a West Virginian.  My father’s people came from France by way of Scotland to the area around Pinch up the Elk River to settle on a 900 acre tract of land bequeathed to them by the King of England in 1625.  My mother’s grandmother was from the Barker and Lewis families with links to the Melungeon clan who claim to be descendants of the Portuguese who chose to stayed behind when the others left to go home.  …

Is Religious indoctrination of children Meltal Abuse?

It's a crime to lock your child up under the stairs. It's considered abuse. I fail to see the difference in locking a child's mind under the stairs. The psychological wounds last forever a broken bone heals in 6-8weeks.



   I myself grew up attending the JW (Jehovah's Witness) kingdom Hall. I'm in my 40's I have 2 kids 18-22. I was lucky in a way, I was born without a God spot and knew from the 2nd day everything that was said and thought  about religions was utter bullshit. And…

Atheism and Child Abuse...not what you think!

The title of this blog is entirely misleading.  But I could not figure out what else to use so there it is.  Read on...

I was born with something in my gut, something I'll call a "savior complex," for want of better words.  I've never been a bawl-bag of compassion but somewhere deeper inside I've always cared.  And I've been cursed with the ability to see people hurting.  For some thirty years or so I thought the answer to fixing people's suffering was god.  I was stupid, of course,…

Mondo Diablo Episode 322: The Nationwide Underground Cult of Mondo Diablo





Godless Panther's YouTube Channel



I sat down one evening and consumed everything on this man's channel. It was pretty depressing. I recommend you don't watch the Geraldo Rivera special on Satanic Ritual Abuse. To his credit, he did renounce everything he had said, but the damage had been done. …

Apologists of Circumcision

The Columbus, Ohio newspaper, The Republic, just today printed the story Religion: Battle Over Circumcision, describing the battle that is erupting in San Francisco over a November 8 ballot that would ban male circumcision. While much of the article tries to distract readers from the issue by making reference to Foreskin Man and how it incites the anger of religious groups like Jews. I think the real issue is not what the author of “Foreskin Man” is up to, but the fact that there is an…

Mondo Diablo Episode 305: Sex Crimes of the Vatican Part 1





It's hard to introduce such a grave subject to a generally light-hearted podcast, but here I am willing to try. This is another BBC documentary, this time exposing the official coverup by the Vatican of sex-abuse by priests and others with trusted positions with the Church (big "C").

Free Yourself from Self Abuse

Stefbot has produced some great YouTube videos that a worth a look. A few of which happen to fall under child abuse and how it affects us well into adulthood. The most recent one I watched was this one:









If you have time, I also encourage you to watch The Bomb in the Brain series. The statistics he uses are from The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, which is an organization that does research on childhood abuse and its effect on adults. So… Continue
