This is a sample of the kind me of stuff I intend to put in my ebook series. This entry will likely end up in one of them.
Sadly, here I am discussing yet another story of a person’s religious belief harming a child. An evangelical Christian woman beat her son with a coat hanger leaving 36 vicious bruises. There’s a graphic image of the child’s back in the linked story.
I know not every child abuser does it for religious reasons, some are just abusive assholes, nor are all religious people child abusers. However, that doesn’t excuse or change the fact that certain religious beliefs are undoubtedly the reason behind some child abuse. Whataboutery won’t change this.

Different people obviously have different thresholds for what they consider “proof”; let’s call that our “Threshold of Proof” or ToP because I’m lazy & don’t want to type it over & over. To me, Evidence is what leads to proof. Some people require multiple pieces of evidence to consider something proven while others require little to no evidence to claim proof.
Where am I going with this? Stick with me.
Throughout history, the gods’ men have invented have always matched the culture they came from and looked like the people of that culture (some exceptions apply). Often cultures would adopt & modify the Gods from neighboring or conquered cultures so they better reflect their own culture and then amalgamate them into one of their own gods or add them to their pantheon. This allowed them to integrate a culture into their own in a way that made them less likely to revolt.
Love is just a biochemical reaction in our brains.
Love didn’t create the universe, the Universe created love as an evolutionary survival trait.
Love can’t die on a Cross. Well, the biochemical reaction can stop, but you know what I mean. Fucking pedants.
I came across the below meme from @_OnlineGospel_ on my twitter timeline. It was such garbage I, of course, couldn’t help but try to kill it before it reproduces.
