Famous Lost Words: RichardDawkins.net

| 0 comments

Richard Dawkins is the Pope of atheism.

And his website, RichardDawkins.net is the place where adherents all agree that God doesn’t exist, humans came from ants, and Christians are kooks.

I happened to find my blog referred to in the comments section of an article called “Jesus ‘Love-Bombs’ You”.

The author of this article “attended a five-day seminar at Coral Ridge in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where I was taught, often by D. James Kennedy, the techniques of conversion. The callousness of these techniques—targeting the vulnerable, building false friendships with the lonely or troubled, promising to relieve people of the most fundamental dreads of human existence from the fear of mortality to the numbing pain of grief—gave to the process an awful cruelty and dishonesty. I attended the seminar as part of the research for my book “American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America.” The rest is predictable, slamming Christians for their commitment to living a Christ-honoring life by going out and sharing their faith.

But the fun really began when I read the comments referencing my blog. Here they are:

em>From Devolution:If you want a great example of a Los Angeles based Christian group that follows this cult-like system of conversion, check this out: www.stonethepreacher.com. You will not believe some of the ridiculous things on this site.

From flobear:Devolution, [Re:] www.stonethepreacher.com. Maybe I’m dense, but is this satire?

From davyB: Www.stonethepreacher.com asks the “million dollar question”, “If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven or Hell?” I hope one of them asks me someday – at the mall maybe. I’ll say, “That’s easy. The answer is no.”
