Christian Nightmares presents: A short tour through evangelical hell

Be sure to stick around at least till 6 minutes when the guy talks about the miracle of god whitening teeth in New Zealand. It’s unbelievable.

The little girls sitting on the floor speaking in tongues is also a craziness that may encourage you to slap your face with one hand.

For a little comic relief, here’s farting preacher 5, my favorite of the series.

It’s Wednesdog!

Xina just sent me an email with some updated dog pictures and said, “If you need a Wednesdog …”

“Is it Wednesday?” I asked Tina.

“Umm, yeah.” said T-dog.

Well how about that!

So here are some photos of Xina’s lovelies. Ruby is the black dog (7.5 months) and Sam is the boxer (16 weeks). I can’t remember what Ruby’s mix is, but she sure is cute! They are both pretty damn cute, really.



Crazy-ass, wild-eyed Bachmann … please run against Obama in 2012. Thank you.

This quote is from a Rolling Stone article:

Bachmann is a religious zealot whose brain is a raging electrical storm of divine visions and paranoid delusions. She believes that the Chinese are plotting to replace the dollar bill, that light bulbs are killing our dogs and cats, and that God personally chose her to become both an IRS attorney who would spend years hounding taxpayers and a raging anti-tax Tea Party crusader against big government. She kicked off her unofficial presidential campaign in New Hampshire, by mistakenly declaring it the birthplace of the American Revolution. “It’s your state that fired the shot that was heard around the world!” she gushed. “You are the state of Lexington and Concord, you started the battle for liberty right here in your backyard.”

And check out crazy-ass Bachmann in this fantastic bit of anachronistic revisionist history clusterfuckery.

I’m bringing snorkel back

My back is peeling like a snake shedding its skin. It itches like crazy. It’s virtually all I have left of my Hawaiian experience. That and the coffee cup that I bought at Super K while in Maui.

Apparently the locals call getting burned while snorkeling “snorkel back.” Sounds appropriate right?

I’ve been thinking back on our trip, and we’re both trying to grip what memories we can and keep them in our brains. We packed our days with a lot of sightseeing. Our host Kim and her three kids were great sports and incredible hosts for accommodating two tourists on their island.

While they are there, Kim rented a beat-up Toyota 1992 Previa, an old van with lots of sex appeal. Kim doesn’t have to worry about getting it dirty or sandy from all their beach visits. The Previa doesn’t sport air conditioning, so we would jump in and everyone would say, “Turn on the air conditioning!” Which meant, roll down the front windows. The back of the van only had those windows that open sideways about an inch. They’re worthless.

Below is what I’m going to use as a journal for our time there. Read if you wish. It’s more for me, than you. But you are welcome to enter …

BBC Newsnight: ThetaHealing, the new Faith Healers

What I don’t get about the splintered, tattered, used-up ideologies of the various sects of Christianity, is how the reasonable ones can share the stage with these unreasonable oddities (like faith healers, pentecostals and Lutherans) . I mean, I only share the stage with Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Mao Tse Tung Tee Tung Tung Tung.

About the above video:

A group of faith healers who claim they have miracle cures for cancer and HIV have been condemned as “irresponsible, even criminal” by a professor of complementary medicine, following a BBC Newsnight investigation.

The group of healers, collectively known as ThetaHealing, claim that their technique – which focuses on thought and prayer – can teach people to use their natural intuition and “brain wave cycle” to “create instantaneous physical and emotional healing.
