When the media panders to religion

A perfect example of the media pandering to religion:

NPR: Searching for Spirituality in Prison

“Spiritual Autobiography” – autobiographies “rooted in lessons of faith”.

One of the professors who speaks is Lauren Winter, assistant professor of Christian Spirituality at Duke Divinity School and author of the book “Girl meets God”.

The show could be better called “Searching for Delusion in Prison”. Why would the Raleigh Correctional Center for Women, funded by tax dollars, be spreading delusion to inmates? And why would NPR be reporting on the spread of delusion?

If you visit the Duke Divinity School’s Web Site, you find this ridiculous contradiction:

Duke Divinity School’s mission is to engage in spiritually disciplined and academically rigorous education in service and witness to the Triune God in the midst of the church, the academy, and the world.

Any “academically rigorous” program would state unequivocally that religion is delusion.

This video is helpful for understanding the delusion:

One Response to “When the media panders to religion”

    i agree with your position on god, but i have to say you are wasting your breath trying to change the minds of believers. people will go to unbelievable lengths to repel facts and logic if they contradict their cherished beliefs

    what i think is very sad, though, is how many christians will re-interpret the righteous moral teachings to fit their messed up version of christianity.

    jesus never preached original sin, and it is not in the bible. jesus wouldn’t even recognize most of the versions of christianity.

    on the other hand, despite his wonderful moral teachings, he did practise faith healing. a modern person might excuse him in this, though, since it was the way psychological healing was practised in his time.

    now watch the so-called christians tell me that all that jesus didn’t really mean all that stuff he said about the poor and helpless, and that it really all means something else that they would like it to mean

    Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.’

    Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’
    He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’
