Religion – the Opiate of the masses!
Creflo Dollar needed a 65 million dollar jet to fly him and his employees around? Ever heard of economy class? It’s either that or fix the jet you already have! Jesus fucking Christ, man!
We are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650. The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace. We are believing for 200,000 people to give contributions of 300 US dollars or more to turn this dream into a reality—and allow us to retire the aircraft that served us well for many years. -Creflo
In this day and age I’m not surprised. These characters aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.
This sad bastard wants 300 dollars from every donor? Are you serious? Am I being trolled right now? I’m only asking because there are people sticking up for this guy; most of them being black people of course.
“What he does is important! He needs the jet to change lives!” Bullshit! I’m saddened that I have to give this guy the attention, but something needs to be said here. He’s a con-artist swindling people out of their money. I don’t know who to blame here, him or his sheep. It’s sad to see so many black people asleep. They need to wake up. All these pastors are doing when they’re jumping up and down, whooping and hollering; dancing and screaming is electric sliding their asses to the bank.
He’s not asking for money to help the less fortunate, he’s asking for money so he can easily take yours. Where I grew up people would call someone like Dollar a hustler, and that’s exactly what he’s doing, hustling.
The College Park location serves 30,000 members, the ministry has satellite churches across the U.S. Dollar has an estimated net worth of $27 million – that’s 200 times more than the $29,640 average annual income in College Park, Ga.
The question I have is why can’t he pay for this jet himself? Why can’t he fix the one he has? Why do he need his sheep to pay for it? He’s asking people with no jobs, that are gullible, looks up to him – unfortunately, that are below the poverty line to pay for a fucking…jet. Some of these people who go to his church don’t even have a home!
He sells you a pipe dream, while sticking his hand in your pockets. All that “flossing” he does in front of his congregation and he can’t foot the bill for his own jet? He’s full of shit.
Didn’t this guy say he had dreams/visions of executing anyone who didn’t pay tithes?
How can you look at this guy and not see a master manipulator? It’s because you’re brainwashed, blind, and willfully ignorant. He’s taking money out of the community by the millions instead of contributing to the community just so he can fly above while telling his congregation “praise the lord!” while he does it.
He told them: “Take nothing for the journey–no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. -Luke 9:3
I guess a jet is okay though.
American Family Association created a map recently. It still needs work and a lot of organizations are missing from that map and I want to be added to it. I don’t have an organization per se, but hell, since they want to target non-hate groups and label them “Anti-Christian” then why the hell not? According to the map, we’re considered bigots and should have a map that targets us. Is this similar to smearing blood on doors, and if so, should I get ready to be massacred?
The web site www.afa.net/bigotrymap includes an interactive map that identifies groups whose actions are deeply intolerant of the Christian religion. Their actions, for example, have endorsed efforts to silence Christians and to remove all public displays of Christian heritage and faith in America.
Do they realize that all this did was help me find like-minded people in my area? Thanks, AFA! I didn’t realize there were so many organizations in my neck of the woods [Cleveland, Ohio] before this map came along.
I’m trying to figure out if this map was spawned because an “atheist killed a Muslim couple over a parking spot”. I respect your “hustle” AFA, but that’s low-bar, even for Christians. FYI: Just because someone doesn’t share your beliefs does not make that person anti-Christian and certainly does not make that person a bigot. We are talking about Christians, though; the ones who feel they are the most persecuted of the persecuted. Don’t mention the crusades, all hell will break loose, then.
There is no shortage of violence, misogyny, and intolerance in the Old Testament of the Bible. With passages that tell us to kill homosexuals (Leviticus 20:13), kill witches (Exodus 20:10), kill non-believers (Deuteronomy 13:13-18), justify slavery (Leviticus 22:11), killing women who are not virgin on their wedding night (Deuteronomy 22:20-21), kill people for working on the Sabbath (Exodus 31:12-15), and countless more commandments by god for his followers to act with extreme cruelty and carry out bloodshed that would make a psychopathic killer seem like an angel, the bible is by far the most disgusting book ever written.
In response to this many Christians use their favourite argument, which is, “that doesn’t count, it’s just the Old Testament!”. Let us look at quickly just how stupid this most widely used Christian argument is:
First of all, nowhere in the New Testament are we told that the Old Testament laws do not apply. In fact, if anything, the opposite of that is true, as Jesus says in Matthew 5:17-19 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Clearly most Christians don’t even read the bible; they just spew out whatever someone else told them. More importantly, Christians claim that both the Old and New Testament were inspired by of god! It’s the same freaking god! Use your brain for a second? In the New Testament, in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 it says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Also important to note is that Christians view Jesus as God, which means Jesus was the God of the Old Testament, who commanded all those violent, sexist, and disgusting laws. And we also read in the bible that God does not change (Malachi 3:6 and James 1:17). But interestingly enough, Jesus in the New Testament is still very violent; as he promises to kill and defeat all non-believers on the day he supposedly comes back to earth.
Now this is where it gets really interesting, Christians not only quote and use the Old Testament on a regular basis, but also relate the stories and supposed prophecies of the Old Testament to Jesus, and see him as a messiah that came to fulfil the Old Testament prophecies. I love how some will even go as far as saying, oh those laws are for the Jews only? Huh?? So are you saying that religious Jews, who only believe in the Old Testament of the Bible, and not the new, are the most violent people on earth? No, because all religions are violent, evil, outdated, and destroy your mind.
It is so hypocritical and stupid for Christians to conveniently say that the Old Testament does not apply. Interesting enough, they pick the scriptures they like in the Old Testament and use it all the time, but then ignore the repulsive ones, and there are MANY! For instance, Christians will take the Ten commandments from the Old Testament book of Exodus and want to have it written all over public areas, but then they simply ignore the fact that Exodus also says “kill those who work on the Sabbath” (Exodus 31:12-15). Hypocrisy and stupidity at its finest! Religion damages your mind. Your brain is so powerful, stop allowing religion to hold it back from achieving its full potential!
How Christians hide behind the “Oh that’s just the Old Testament” argument is mind-boggling!
Submission from one of my readers:
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
I Samuel 15:29
He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words never pass away.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. -Roswatheists
Had to post this here as well so my other readers and followers could see it. They’ve actually been waiting on this post. Well wait no more.

I was subscribed to this website’s blog for a while. I’ve always had this feeling that some of the writers post things out of their realm of comfort; especially about atheism. A lot of their posts about atheism are labeled wrong. It’s like they have an agnostic write those posts, or someone that’s not an atheist at all. Anyway, moving on.
10. “What if you’re wrong?”
That isn’t something you need to worry about. I’m not trying to force my lack of beliefs on you, and if I’m wrong, so be it. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. But I live a good life, and I would hope that a just and loving deity would be okay with that. -Mommyish

Want to know how I know? I’ll tell you. It’s quite simple actually. Just talk to your neighborhood Christian and they’ll tell you as plain as day that ‘God loves everyone!’ That’s the biggest lie ever told. It’s to be expected seeing as Pew Research has stated that Christians know the least about their religion; their god; their bible.
Let’s list the things that your god see as abominations, or are detestable; things [he] hates and abhors and see if he’s truly all about love. This list is going to be long.
“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” -Leviticus 18:22
“And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.” -Leviticus 20:23
“ For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.” -Isaiah 61:8
You’d think this god would know what offerings were going to be presented to [him] before receiving them.
“And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.” -Leviticus 18:23
Which is funny because bestality is legal in these places:
“And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.” -Leviticus 26:30
“This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You saw the great disaster I brought on Jerusalem and on all the towns of Judah. Today they lie deserted and in ruins 3 because of the evil they have done. They aroused my anger by burning incense to and worshiping other gods that neither they nor you nor your ancestors ever knew. 4 Again and again I sent my servants the prophets, who said, ‘Do not do this detestable thing that I hate!” -Jeremiah 44:2-4
Talk about having a tantrum. Is this a god or a toddler?
“…do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the Lord.” -Zechariah 8:17
Dude, you cursed a fig tree…then proceeded to have a table flipping contest with yourself, but not before driving everyone out of Jerusalem that were selling doves. You then left and your disciples saw that poor fig tree all withered up and what did you say? “Faith in god.” So, what did you mean, faith in yourself? You’re you! Of course you’d have faith in “god”. A fig tree lost its life because you was hungry and the tree was not in the season to grow fruit. Guess it wasn’t the season for reason, either. -Mark 11:12-25
“ The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.” -Deuteronomy 7:25
“And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.” -Deuteronomy 32:19
“You ask, “Why?” It is because the Lord is the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.15 Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring.So be on your guard,and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.16 “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,’ says the Lord Almighty.
So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful.” -Malachi 2:14-16
“Do not sacrifice to the Lord your God an ox or a sheep that has any defect or flaw in it, for that would be detestable to him.” -Deuteronomy 17:1
“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.” -Psalm 5:5
“…and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have forbidden, 4 and it is told you and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently, and if it is true and certain that such an abomination has been done in Israel,” -Deuteronomy 17:3-4
“Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.” -Psalm 5:6
The deeds and doctrines of Nicolaitanes. -Revelations 2:6-15
“There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering,anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord.” -Deuteronomy 18:10-12
“For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.” -Psalm 10:3
“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.” -Deuteronomy 22:5
“You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the Lord your God to pay any vow, because the Lord your God detests them both.” -Deuteronomy 23:18
“There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.” -Psalm 53:5
“ Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.” -Deuteronomy 24:4
“As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.” -Psalm 73:20
“Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light.14 Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small.15 You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. 16 For the Lord your God detests anyone who does these things, anyone who deals dishonestly.” -Deuteronomy 25:13-16
Let me just chime in and say that your god is not only a liar, but petty as hell!
“When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:” -Psalm 78:59
“Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. He gave them into the hands of the nations, and their foes ruled over them.” -Psalm 106:40-41
“The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.” -Psalm 11:5
What a hypocrite.
“For the perverse are an abomination [extremely disgusting and detestable] to the Lord; but His confidential communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him).” -Proverbs 3:32
“The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.” -Proverbs 22:14
“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” -Proverbs 6:16-19
If this is really the word of god then [he’s] not looking too stable right now. It’s almost outright frightening how hypocritical this god is. No wonder [his] sheep is such a splitting of [him]. It’s all making sense now. God apparently killed all those first-born babies of egypt with no hands. “Look ma, no hands!”
Then it continues:
“…a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. -Proverbs 6:18-19
“And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest.” -Lamentations 2:6
“The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.” -Proverbs 12:22
I don’t know about you, but this is getting repetitive…redundant even.
“All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.” -Hosea 9:15
“The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked but the prayer of the upright pleases him. 9 The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness.10 Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.” -Proverbs 15:8-10
“Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.” -Zechariah 11:8
“The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, but the words of the pure are pleasant.” -Proverbs 15:26
God sure had a thing with the “wicked”.
“And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.” -Malachi 1:3
“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.” -Proverbs 16:5
“As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” -Romans 9:13
“Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent—the Lord detests them both.” -Proverbs 17:15
There is no winning with this guy…
“Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations—I cannot bear your worthless assemblies. Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals. I hate with all my being. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.” -Isaiah 1:13-14
“Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the Lord your God, 22 and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the Lord your God hates.” -Deuteronomy -16:21-22
“I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me. 22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them. 23 Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. 24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” -Amos 5:21-24
“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send
peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his
father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” -Matthew 10:34-35
You can go here to have your fill.
From these scriptures alone, your god hates everyone. So stop passive aggressively telling me that your god loves me and loves “all god’s creatures” when that is clearly not the case. Your god doesn’t even like you. Your god doesn’t hate the sin but loves the sinner. Otherwise, there would’t be over 650 scriptures dedicated to getting rid of said sinners in a lake of fire. So stop it.
Thanks in advance.
Your neighborhood atheist.
