Football coach’s Christian crusade backfires hilariously as school prayers get a Satanic twist

Posted by doctore0 on October 28, 2015

The controversy surrounding a high school football coach who refuses to stop leading team prayers during games took an unexpected turn this week.

A student at Bremerton High School in Washington has asked the local Satanic Temple to deliver an invocation — and the semi-satirical devil worshippers told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson they would show up.

“We will be at Thursday’s game doing a postgame Satanic invocation on the field if Coach (Joe) Kennedy continues to pray,” said Lilith Starr, head of The Satanic Temple of Seattle. “We won’t step on the field if he is stopped or doesn’t pray.”

Bremerton High School coach Joe Kennedy has defied orders from school district officials to stop his tradition of leading team prayers. The school says the prayers violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits public officials like Kennedy from promoting religion.

“School staff exercising their right to silently pray in private on their own is fine,” Washington state Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn said in the statement.

BananaMan mocks ‘dumb’ Hindus injured or killed by falling Ganesh statue

Posted by doctore0 on October 26, 2015

comfort bananaA creationist pastor mocked Hindus who were killed or injured when a religious idol fell on them as they worshipped.

One man was killed and three people were injured when a statue of the elephant god Ganesh collapsed during a worship service last month in India, and a video of the tragedy was circulated and widely reported last week.

Ray Comfort — who is probably best known for arguing that bananas disproved evolution, at least until he learned that they were the products of artificial selection by humans — posted a link to an article about the tragedy and urged his followers to donate to his Living Waters ministry.

“The Bible says that those who worship dumb idols, are just like them,” Comfort posted on his Facebook page. “How India needs the gospel! But we don’t have to go there to take it to them. We have the Internet.”

Comfort’s fans quickly picked up what he was laying down and praised God’s wrathful judgment.

Pastor Sells ‘Holy Pens’ That Make Students Pass Exams Without Studying, Claims The More You Pay The More You Pass

Posted by doctore0 on October 26, 2015


HARARE – A Local prophet is raising more questions than answers after selling ballpoints to congregants during his church service on Sunday, claiming that they are anointed.
Prophet Sham Hungwe of House of Grace International Church, who operates at Machipisa Shopping Centre, distributed hundreds of pens to people who are about to sit for exams.

The pens which cost at least 15 cents were being sold for different amounts ranging between US$1 and US$20 depending on what you can afford.

Prophet Sham said those who are sitting for their exams only needed faith and the anointed pen to pass. “It is anointed and I declare passes when your children sit for exams; when you sit for your exams ,” he said.

With the ‘O’ Level and ‘A’ Level examinations around the corner, the pens sold like hot cakes and congregants were seen scrambling to the pulpit to get them.

“They (pens) are said to work for anyone who is sitting for any test. My son is not very bright and I think this will help him. With the knowledge he has acquired and this pen from the man of God, I think it is going to work.”

One female congregants parted ways with more than US$10 for a pen as they were told the more they give, the more their faith and the more their children will pass.

Jehovah’s Witness grandparents ordered to keep faith to themselves

Posted by doctore0 on October 22, 2015


A pair of devout Jehovah’s Witnesses have been ordered by a B.C. provincial court judge not to talk about religion in front of their four-year-old granddaughter.

The couple lost their bid for unsupervised access to the girl because they insisted on taking her to worship at their faith’s Kingdom Hall despite the repeated objections of the child’s mother.

The girl is identified only as A.W. and the grandparents as A.R. and B.R. in Judge Edna Ritchie’s 12-page decision. And for now, they’re on a short leash.

“There are many people with strongly held religious views that do not discuss those views in front of others, and specifically not in front of children,” Ritchie wrote.

Unless A.R. and B.R. can satisfy the court that they can comply with the mother’s wishes, Ritchie said, “their time with A.W. must be supervised and limited.”
Religious rights vs. parental responsibility

The case pits the Family Law Act against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The Family Law Act states that only a guardian has parental responsibilities, including decisions about religious upbringing, and the mother, M.W., is sole guardian.

But A.R. and B.R. argued that forbidding them from expressing their faith to their grandchild would violate a charter right to practise their religion.

Church Beating Victim Tried to Save Brother’s Live

Posted by doctore0 on October 22, 2015

The teenager who survived a beating inside a secretive New York church that killed his brother said their family whipped them with an electrical cord for hours for refusing to answer the pastor’s questions. In his first testimony since the attack, Christopher Leonard said in court Wednesday that he tried to give CPR to his 19-year-old brother, Lucas, when his brother stopped moving. Lucas Leonard died from the assault inside Word of Life Christian Church in New Hartford on Oct. 11th. The revelations came at a preliminary hearing for his half-sister, Sarah Ferguson, who is one of six people facing charges in the incident. The teens’ parents, Bruce and Deborah Leonard, are charged with manslaughter in Lucas’s death.

No baptism, no school: Irish parents fight for equal access to education

Posted by doctore0 on October 22, 2015

psalm1379Instead of starting school last month, Reuben Murphy found himself back in his Dublin nursery for another year as his mother, Nikki, re-embarked on her quest to find a place at a local state primary for her four-year-old son.

She has already applied to 15 schools. But, following rejections from nine last year, Murphy is far from confident that a place will be found for Reuben. In a country where more than 90% of state schools are run by the Catholic church, unbaptised children like him are at the bottom of their admissions lists.

“I’m desperate,” said Murphy. “I’ve met tons of parents who’ve baptised their children just to get a school place. We thought about it, but it goes against our conscience. I feel it would be an abuse of other people’s deeply held religious beliefs.”

A drive to repeal the legislation that allows Irish schools to operate admissions criteria based on faith is gathering momentum. More than 16,000 people have backed a petition to be presented to parliament in the next couple of weeks, and campaigners are determined to raise the issue of unbaptised children in next year’s general election.

According to Paddy Monahan, a Dublin barrister who launched the petition, the law is an unconstitutional anachronism in a country that saw the second biggest drop globally in those claiming to be religious in recent years. A WIN-Gallup global poll (pdf) found that 47% of Irish respondents identified themselves as religious in 2011, compared with 69% in 2005 – a drop of 22%, exceeded only by the fall in Vietnam. Non-Catholic immigration to Ireland has further diluted the church’s hegemony.
