Ep 278: Cool Whip

“Satan outed me as a cock smoking fairy.”

And now I present to you an excerpt from my conversations online with religious people. This is in response to me asking her how she got caught up with the fresh life church movement here. This is word for word in case you were curious. Keep in mind this person is an adult now…

“I see, well it’s funny you ask. Long story short, I as a child chose to believe in Christ. I also slowly began to realise that my mom was completely crazy and was isolated for most of my teen years except for being allowed to attend homeschool choir and church. I’m a musician so I just participated in the youth band…but I was misunderstood there by most everyone so I looked for a different church when I was 18, and eventually went to fresh life a little while before i moved away. I’ve been to the bottum of my existance and back, I’ve looked at my faith as objectively and cynically as possible, nearly leaving it once or twice, and I have found that I can’t just take somebody’s word for how life is, or who God is. It’s a road we all have to take on our own, and if you can find a humble trustworthy person to bounce ideas off of, it helps, but you gotta be able to tell if they’re full of crap or not. I’ve been pretty convinced so far that Levi Lusko of Fresh life is not full of it, so thats really how I was sucked in, and it’s the only church that I really miss. Of course I’m pretty sure I understand what you mean about the children, I was one of them, and I admit I’ve felt brainwashed sometimes. But if you look at those old people churches you might notice how dull and empty they are. I mean who wants to be around crabby old people who sing songs from the 1800’s? not me. And I think it’s really the parents responsibility to not shove anything down thier kids throats… if they do somewhere down the road i think the kids will still realise they have a choice and probably go for the opposite. But i don’t think the church has much control over that except in what they teach. I grew up with plenty of children in church who are now punk rockers, athiests, or whatever because they decided. Well I’ve probably rambled on enough.”

So I reply…

That is troubling to me. You never had a chance, you were the child of christian parents. You think you had a chance, but you never knew any different, and you had the fear put in you at a very early age.  You don’t take somebody’s word for what life is, you figure it out on your own. Saying it’s god is just a cop out to give responsibility to some made up being. Church is all you know, and to step away from that frightens you. The choice shouldn’t be either old people churches or fresh life church, it should be church or no church. All churches boil down to the same basic principles. Just because you are evolving a religion from something dull and boring to something not dull and boring, doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a religion. Different shapes of shit are still shit deep down inside. Kids don’t have a choice when they are indoctrinated from birth by being baptized and being forced to go to church, then asking them after a good 10 to 15 years of that whether or not they believe in god. Of course they do, because they are afraid to death that if they don’t, they will burn eternally in this made up place, that preachers invented to scare you into buying into their fake religion in the first place. It’s a very vicious cycle. I would recommend reading the god delusion or letter to a christian nation if you are into expanding your mind.

Ep 264: Finish Me Off

“I think I’m feeling some movement in my guts.”

I guess maybe the last time I addressed this, some people may not have read it, or perhaps I used words that were too big for certain people to understand. When you call into a podcast such as The Jamhole, don’t be the asshole that has his (or her) speakers cranked up. If you call in, turn them shits on mute. Also, I understand getting nervous when calling into a show like this, we’ve all done it, hell, I’ve done it. But please make sure you have something in mind to say. Also, if you are going to play a “prank” make sure it’s funny. Pretending like you don’t hear us, then you hear us, then you don’t hear us does not constitute a prank. It just makes you sound like a retard. Also remember this, when you call in, I have your phone number. I’m going to let what happened in this episode slide this one time. You have been warned, but if you do it again, you will feel the full force of exactly how big of an asshole the internet, and our fans, can be. Trust me, that is not something you want to experience. Moving on from this, I have one more thing I would like to address. If you are going to come into a chat room such as ours, talking about how god told you to save us, make legitimate points. Don’t sit there for two hours chasing your own theological tail. It only makes you sound ignorant, and proves my point that much more. That is all I’m going to say about this. We will discuss in more details on Friday’s show. Thank you for listening.
