“What the fuck is Montana?”

Guess who’s favorite “church” organization in Kalispell just bought up another property downtown. I swear this fresh life church thing is getting way out of control. Making moves like a bandit on this small town god mentality. So Levi Lusko, who is the 27 year old head of the organization says that, “Our goal isn’t snatching up properties, our goal is to accommodate the growth of the church.” With over 1,500 members, they are outgrowing the two large occupancy movie theaters in the heart of downtown Kalispell they acquired back in 2007. It’s not just here that he’s done this either. Mr. Lusko was the youth pastor of one of the biggest churches in New Mexico, and the director of student ministries at Ocean Hills Church in San Juan Capistrano. He seems to really know how to get the kids to like him and listen to what he’s saying, which is fucked up, because no one is out there telling the kids the other side of it. All they hear is this god is coming back shit, and they are scared into doing whatever he says. God is never coming back! Don’t you see? They have the perfect mechanism for getting people to believe this shit. You say that god is coming back, but on his own time, so in the meanwhile, just keep coming to church and learning about how god is completely awesome and totally coming back, donate money to us, and when god does finally come back, you’ll all be good and ready to go to heaven. I find myself more and more amazed at the capacity of the human mind to believe such silly shit.

People need to see the problem with this. Some young charismatic god preaching eccentric rolls into town from California with a pile of cash, and opens up a mega church appealing to the non conservative side of the valley here, and all of the sudden he’s converting every kid who has ever been scared into believing in the existence of a god. If god was real, we’d have some evidence of it. Also, the problem with the catholic church and children kind of points the other way. If religious people have morals because of god, why do they insist on finger fucking your children? I’ve been to a service there, and it’s very scary how zombie like the congregations are. The mind is a powerful tool, especially when used against you. So now you see a skull church sticker on every other car that drives by, with a look in the eyes of the driver like they’ve lost something. It’s very relaxing to know that everything is in god’s hands right? Light as a feather, not a care in the world, and if I do happen to fuck up, I can just apologize and be on my way. Man, god is so awesome. God is a placebo effect, nothing more. We used to need god back when we didn’t understand fuck all about how the world works. But now, as we discover and advance our technology and our lives, we have replaced god with stable, sound scientific logic and reasoning.
