Mark Driscoll, the perennial bigoted fundamentalist snake in the dirt that he is, has either himself, or by proxy, put up a brief response to the Boston bombing.
This is the sort of insidious ignorance created by a death cult.
“Make no mistake, we are at war: an insane rebellion against our Creator God is the root cause of this murderous action.”
Religion has motivated countless murders and slaughters of innocents. If this is a religiously motivated act of terrorism, it will be due to some people’s belief in a creator god. The same one as Driscoll, in fact. We can take the sentence and make sense of it by cutting it just so: “God is the root cause of this murderous action.”
“Sin makes no sense, is not rational, nor can be reasoned with.”
Of course not. It is an imaginary crime against an imaginary being with imaginary eternal consequences. In point of fact, there are no eternal consequences for Christians, and eternal punishment for everyone believing the wrong mythology, meaning rapist/murderer/genocidists can gain eternal bliss, but if their victims curse god because of their perpetrator’s actions, they get eternal torment, under traditional orthodox theology.
“He does so, not by acts of military might or zealous terror, but by swallowing the curse like a bitter pill.”
Some pastors are ignorant liars. Others are willfully ignorant liars, and these are the more morally compromised ones. Mark driscoll knows full well that God (in the literal biblical sense) ordered mass slaughters of Amalekites, Caananites, the entire human race due to flooding, used the babylonians, persians, and assyrians to enact ‘justice’ by slaughtering innocents, and generally made a great bloody mess of things with glee and schoolgirl giddiness that sociopaths have wet dreams about. Yahweh, after being adopted from the Caananite El, was a ceaseless machination of impetulant murderous destruction out of petty jealousy and impotence from his pride, yet Driscoll has the moral paucity to say that this god does not act this way. And we best not forget gentle Jesus, who promises exact excruciating pain on his enemies, with his angels creating a winepress of death. What a disturbingly incorrect notion of peace.
“He bears the full blast of God’s wrath against all the powers of hell aligned against us.”
Ironically, it was the mythical theology set forth by the Israelites who required sacrifice, coupled with the mystery cults of the day that bestowed salvation on individual followers through Passions and rising, that enacted this death cult’s existence. Also, aren’t we talking about the Almighty Creator of the universe that is capable of suspending physics and creating universes through his words? Oh, no, he’s incapable of changing his own rules, correcting his own mistakes, or having the foresight to realize that creating humans with the proclivity to ‘sin’ would mean they would ‘sin.’ What a pathetic idiot for a god this is; I had more planning ability when I was 4, visiting the bathroom without taking a dump my pants.
It’s a good thing he’s in charge and not me. I would have forgiven people who try to do good through empathy, and stopped rapists and murderers and suicide bombers, and not required willful ignorance and ‘faith’ to guarantee relief from eternal conscious torment. I wouldn’t write a book filled with contradictions, loopholes, and stories that have no archaeological evidence, borrow verbatim from other mythologies in the surrounding area, and were written down (or fabricated out of thin air and hallucination) hundreds of years after the fact. I would have provided some logical shred of my existence, instead of operating in a constant state of incompatibility to the law of noncontradiction, bestowing free will on humans to mess up my perfect plan, while maintaining full power over everything, existing as 3 and 1 at the same time, and telling my followers to slaughter everything that comes in their path, remaining unchanging, and change my mind by requesting everyone turn the other cheek, sending spirits of lies to prophets, deliberately hardening Pharaoh’s heart in order to slaughter a few children.
What god doesn’t like infanticide? Not the Abramic one! I guess that’s the difference between me and God. I don’t like slaughtering children for my perverted egomaniacal masturbation.
“Because our Creator is for shalom, he is against anything that attempts to destroy it.”
It would seem this creator has a bipolar identity crisis, as His M.O. seems to be slaughter everything he’s jealous of. Again, changing his mind like a whining child is par for the course.
“And though we may not fully understand why God allowed this senseless bombing, we do know, unquestionably, that he cares and his covenantal commitment will not diminished by the flailing death rattle of evil in any form.”
God allowed it because God doesn’t exist. No being worthy of being called a god would allow the sort of wanton death and destruction we see, unless he were incapable of stopping it, unaware of the evil, or was actually an evil, malevolent, capricious, sadistic fuck of a being.
“Let us grieve and mourn for the weeping city of Boston. But let us do so with hope, knowing Jesus is Lord of creation and the great physician of every wound.”
And this, my friends, is the reason I hate people like Mark Driscoll and the fitlth that spouts from his ignorant, undeserving mind. Let’s grieve, but forget about that grief; let’s remain blissfully ignorant to the reality that is screaming at us in the face, that there are people and cultures and human beings who, for whatever reason, want to engage in these unempathetic acts of slaughter. Don’t lets figure out what’s causing this sort of death;
Let’s just look forward to our own slaughter, and the slaughter of those sinful humans around us, for the beginning of their eternal torment, with glee!
As all the other death cults of the world do.
