And debauchery.... Presented to you by the Trinity Church in Cedar Hills, Tx. This was linked on one of my Skeptic Society friends on Facebook. It got more stupid and ridiculous as the minutes progressed (or regressed) Let me preface what i noticed with the fact that i don't believe there is a God. I was raised in a similar church belief system, with a little less hatred towards groups of people than this church, but albiet a similar regious style. I look back on much wasted time and money for a cause that was useless and served only to be judgemental towards others. This really bothers me because religious beliefs have such a stronghold in society. And while people are free to choose what they want to believe, I have a problem with predetermined outcomes and judgement on things that have a more complex background than just "Oh if you kill yourself, you are going to hell, but hey Jesus loves you, come visit us on Sunday!" and misleading mass groups of people into believing situations will end this way.... There is no wonder kids in schools are being made to feel like they are less than others if they are not religious. Religious people act as if they are the only ones that are being discriminated against, they are the first to dish out this sort of behavior and it's allowed to go on because people assume if it's Jesus, it's a good thing. If you take notice, the scenerios set up to scare and intimidate people into choosing religion are silly. First, they send the message that if you commit suicide- you are going to hell. No matter what the reasoning is behind the suicide. The voice of the person playing the grim reaper is far more annoying than hell could ever be. If you take drugs at a rave club, you will be raped by multiple guys, ultimately killing yourself and going to hell. I never grasped the reason for going to hell with the man who abused his wife who was supposedly cheating on him. The person who was drinking and driving will be going to hell. The gay man dying of AIDS is mocked by saying "He thought he was being a REAL MAN" and they made him go to hell for hating god on his deathbed. The girl who is bleeding to death for taking "the abortion pill" is graphically displayed in order to scare you, even though at the end the people trying to save you are saying they aren't trying to scare you. You don't bleed to death from the abortion pill. The bleeding deaths occured from abortions where the instrumentation used to suck out the contents of the uterus punctured through the uterine wall or a closeby artery, without proper medical support the woman would die. But the abortion pill does not cause death like this. This is sheer fear factor garbage to scare people. Note the girl who had the abortion is forgiven because she calls out for jesus on her deathbed, why didn't this work the other way around where the gay man was forgiven and the girl next to him in the ER went to hell? Talk about a predetermined afterlife for all gay people eh? The alter call at the end is so obligatory, in such a small room you have a guy practically yelling at you to go into the other room to be saved. I can't even remember what else was there but the best YouTube comment was "I had no idea the afterlife had so much tin foil!" Too many things to mention, but it is this sort of belief about every possible scenerio that is portrayed as evil that annoys the shit out of me about religious people. As if there isn't already so much to be mocked about them. The never ending support of the congregation allows for them to set up such elaborate displays of judgement. I'm interested to see what others noticed as well.
