African Children Denounced As “Witches” By Christian Pastors

Ugh, once again religion and superstition used to justify psychotic violence in Africa. Sad, sad story about children being accused of witchcraft by Christian ministers, who extort their parents for money to perform exorcisms. If they can’t pay up, look what happens… And what makes it even worse is that often the parents buy into it and harm their own children or abandon them.

EKET, Nigeria ?

Straightforward article from AP about the 2012 doomsday silliness. Worth reading. The bit about kids and young mothers buying into this BS is sad and depressing.

Pure and simple this is Christian apocalyptism being projected onto the ancient Maya (in retrospect, even!) and various New Age theories (

Kirk Cameron’s “Evolutionary” Pains

Well, summer’s over.  I never made it back to Camp Firefly, or enjoyed another night of possibly anti-semitic television with Kirk-‘n’-Chelsea, but I still want to catch up with them this fall, when they

plan to subvert ‘Darwin Day’ on November 19, 2009—a date marking the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species.”  Cameron says that he and like-minded activists plan to deliver 50,000 copies of an altered version of Darwin’s book to students at dozens of U.S. universities.

Cameron explains that this “very special” edition of the “Origin of Species” will include an introduction explaining “Adolf Hitler’s undeniable connection” to the theory of evolution, and highlighting “Darwin’s racism” and “his disdain for women.”  Cameron’s edition also exposes the “many hoaxes” of evolutionary theory, while presenting a “balanced view of Creationism.”

PARADOX ALERT: if you’d like to hear how Cameron thinks our (theoretically) constitution-backed country is stripping us of our many “God-given” liberties, click here.  You’ll be far more amused, though, watching ZOMGitsCriss’ video response below.

And when you’re through, mark your calendars for November 19th.  But rather than going all “town hall” on Cameron’s book giveaway, why not do as as ZOMGitsCriss suggests: simply take as many copies as your ape paws can grab, and use that intro for something less meta and more physical.  I know Darwin would approve!

Max Blumenthal’s Republican Gomorrah

Max Blumenthal, writer for The Nation and The New York Times, and senior writer for The Daily Beast, is out making the promotional rounds for his provocatively-titled bestseller, Republican Gomorrah: Inside The Movement That Shattered The Party.

In it, Blumenthal hacks through what The New Yorker‘s Hendrik Hertzberg calls the “dank forests of American Christianism.”  Yesterday, he sat down with—and withstood—Joe Scarborough (see above), who grills Blumenthal on everything from birthers to death panels.

Blumenthal was also a recent guest of Terry Gross.  You can listen to the interview here.  In it, Blumenthal calls out such lesser known, behind-the-curtain players as the late RJ Rushdoony and his “financial angel” Howard F. Ahmanson Jr., who, after emerging, “saved,” from a mental institution, declared, “my goal is the total integration of biblical law into everyday lives.”

Beyond his work as a writer, though, Blumenthal’s produced a number of videos—including the “banned from YouTube” vid, Feel The Hate.  You can watch that here, but you should also check out In The Land Of Queen Esther (below), where Blumenthal explores the possible Sarah Palin connection to the biblically-inspired Queen, and how Alaska’s crown-like shape might betray its ultimate purpose: serving as an end-of-days, post-rapture refuge for everyone in the lower 48.

The Merry Cemetery of Sapanta, Romania

Fascinating. This place reminds me a lot of Paradise Gardens, where outsider artist Reverend Howard Finster lived.

From the Presurfer blog:

The Merry Cemetery is a cemetery in the village of Sapanta in Romania. It’s famous for its colourful tombstones with naive paintings describing, in an original and poetic manner, the persons that are buried there as well as scenes from their lives.

The unusual feature of this cemetery is that it diverges from the prevalent belief that views death as something indelibly solemn. Connections with the local Dacian culture have been made, a culture whose philosophical tenets presumably vouched for the immortality of the soul and the belief that death was a moment filled with joy and anticipation for a better life.

Meet the patron saint of Muslim creationism, Harun Yahya.  Haven’t yet heard of “Muslim creationism?”  Well, according to The New Humanist‘s Halil Arda, it’s

becoming increasingly visible and confident.  On scores of websites and in dozens of books with titles like The Evolution Deceit and The Dark Face of Darwinism, a new and well-funded version of evolution-denialism, carefully calibrated to exploit the current fashion for religiously inspired attacks on scientific orthodoxy and ?

Cringe Vision’s description of the clip:

Here’s a clip from “Joy Junction,” a creepy Christian kids show that ran on TBN from the early 80’s until recently. Here, we see Marty the puppet, talking about going to a friends house, and resisting the temptation to look at porn that the kids were pressuring him to peruse. I saw this clip when i was 5, and thought it was creepy then..
