Dispatches from the Intersection of Law and Religion

Sadly, it looks like the religious folks with power to create laws are opening new fronts just about every day. While I was going crazy with work, there’s a bunch of news items worth highlighting that I simply missed.

Of Skyrimming, overzealous Christianity, and reading comprehension

One of my absolute favorite theist parody sites is ChristWire. They are, for all intents and purposes, a proving ground for Poe’s Law. There, the most ridiculous parodies of fundamentalist or evangelical Chrsitian reactions to everyday occurrences or aspects of pop culture are mimicked to such a high degree that, all too often, real Christians …

Sacrelicious slash ad

BenettonJesusDevil

Via Copyranter, here’s a (probably parody) ad for United Colors of Benetton that’s bound to raise some hackles. Funny how a campaign built around the idea of reducing levels of hatred in our society has this absurdly ironic tendency of drawing so much controversy. And it’s not like this stuff is unprecedented — just search …

Christians Hate Ninja Turtles

Proving once again that Christian evangelists with a camera have, historically, thought of nothing better to do with their faith and technology-on-hand than recording and selling a pop culture Five Minutes Hate, here’s some Canadian Christians slagging off Ninja Turtles for being “Hinduist humanist occult” something something. Also, Michael Jackson chocolate bars, and Weylon Smithers …

God Almighty action figure, with Kalashnikov

godalmightyactionfigure

I wonder if he has karate chop smiting action. Check out the price sticker and what they call the loose-fitting Matrix coat. Yahweh’s never looked so stylish. So if someone were to obtain these items of power, you figure we’d be gods too? Hat tip to my bro-in-law Shannon.

The Killing of Satan

If this is all Satan’s capable of — rolling rocks around slowly, making people cross their eyes at one another, making them rotate — then I don’t think religious folks really have much to worry about. I mean, look at that protagonist who I expect will inevitably defeat the ultimate evil, the fallen angel of …

When you fail this often, may as well quit while you’re ahead. $75 Mil ahead.

Harold Camping has retired as head of FamilyRadio.com, and the radio website has pulled all mention of the failed apocalyptic predictions, according to the Christian Post. The move comes soon after Brandon Tauszik, a documentarian who has been attending Camping’s Oakland, Calif., church for eight months, confirmed with The Christian Post in an exclusive interview …

Catholic Church reappropriated 300,000 babies to more religious homes

Lawyers believe that up to 300,000 babies were taken. The practice of removing children from parents deemed “undesirable” and placing them with “approved” families, began in the 1930s under the dictator General Francisco Franco. At that time, the motivation may have been ideological. But years later, it seemed to change – babies began to be …

Pokemon, Minecraft, Guitar Hero and Magiquest: ALL SATANIC.

squirtle

This guy ain’t original about Pokémon, neither. At least he pads out his talk with some assertions NOT made by this other crazy preacher by including the fact (FACT!) that the names of Pokémon are actual, honest-to-goodness Oriental demons.

It might not get better after all.

I love the “It Gets Better” campaign, started by newspaper personality Dan Savage. The message he has to deliver though, that bullying and oppression that you might experience by coming out as gay or transsexual or any other non-hetero orientation will eventually wane as others mature and learn to embrace plurality, might be… shall we …
