The insanity of religion – History Channel edition

Do Christians think about the things they say? The logical implications of what they say? A perfect example is presented here:

Christian radio host: ‘God guided’ History Channel to prove Obama is Satan

“I don’t believe they intentionally portrayed the Lucifer character to look like Mr. Obama,” the Christian radio host noted. “I think God guided the hand of the makeup artist and blinded the eyes of everybody on the movie set while it was being recorded, and the spiritual blinders were removed Sunday night when the program was broadcast nationally on the History Channel.”

“How many clues do we need from Heaven to understand that the man in the White House is a devil from Hell?”

If this God is so powerful, so willful and so interactive that he would “guide the hand of makeup artists” and “blind the eyes of everybody on the movie set”, then how in the world did Obama get elected? If Obama is the “devil from Hell”, how did Obama get re-elected? Isn’t God capable of guiding an election just as easily?

Christians who make statements like the ones seen in this article truly do appear to be insane.

The insanity of religion – God’s plan edition

Here we find a great example of the insanity of religion:

God’s existence addressed

Through reflection, study and reading the works of C.S. Lewis, Lee Strobel and others, Kraftson said he found solid answers to his questions early in his college career.

“Which brought up the question: What do I want to do with my life?” Kraftson said. “I graduated college in 1970, which some of you may recall was a pretty turbulent time in our country, but also a time when many were joining the Peace Corps and things like that.”

Having concluded that God exists and does have a plan for everyone, Kraftson decided to share that message through interacting with people.

“Having concluded that God exists and does have a plan for everyone…” Imagine the level of insanity it takes to look at our world and reach that conclusion. Think of the 10 million children per year who die of starvation, the millions more who die senselessly of cancer and heart attacks, the millions slaughtered in war, and the millions more who perish in natural disasters. God says, “yes, my plan for you is to grow to age three and then to be crushed when your apartment collapses in an earthquake.” Only insanity could see that as a plan.
