Nobody Has Ever Been as Excited About ‘Star Wars’ as This Priest

Apr 22, 2015 By Scott Neumyer 0

If you thought Matthew McConaughey was excited to watch the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, wait until you see Fr. Roderick Vonhögen’s reaction to seeing it for the very first time.

Considerin he’s an avid Star Wars fan who hosts podcasts about the series (and has even written a book about his life-long obsession with it), it’s really cool to see just how childlike he becomes while watching the short trailer.

Darth Vader Overdubbed with Amusingly Apt Bible Quotes

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 0

Obviously, Darth Vader is an extremist. One could even make the argument that he is a religious extremist. As such it would be fair to say that he is a kind of fundamentalist, though obviously not of any religion we’re used to seeing fundamentalists from.

But what if his extreme devotion were toward a faith we’re more familiar with…

These Satanists Knew Exactly How to Respond when a Christian Statue was Destroyed

Nov 3, 2014 By Megan Berman 7

Earlier this year, citing religious freedom, the Satanic Temple fought to build a statue of Baphomet outside of the Oklahoma State Capitol building, next to a statue of the Ten Commandments.

Plans were going well, and the Temple had raised more than enough to construct the statue. But then someone completely destroyed the Ten Commandments monument with their car “in the name of Satan.”

Broken 10 Commandment Statue

So how did the Satanic Temple respond? They’ve put off the construction of their own statue until the Ten Commandments monument is restored. They explain

The Satanic Temple was appalled to learn of the act of destructive vandalism laid upon the 10 Commandments monument in Oklahoma today. As many are aware, we are seeking to have a Satanic monument erected alongside the 10 Commandments….

We do not want our monument to stand alone. If our monument stands at the state Capitol, we want it to compliment and contrast the 10 Commandments, with both standing unmolested as a testament to American religious freedom and tolerance. We hope that by respecting religious liberty in allowing our monument to be displayed, Oklahoma will help ameliorate any animosity between differing perspectives, not cultivate them.

Considering what comes to mind for most people when they picture Satanism, this is both surprising and refreshing.

Now we wait and see whether a new 10 Commandments statue will be erected to stand beside Baphomet or whether the powers that be will simply decide that the front lawn looks just fine with out any religious decoration.

Three Top Scientology Officials Corner Ex-Scientologist, Berate Him at the Airport. Insane…

Oct 21, 2014 By Joey 0

Most religious organizations leave you alone if you walk away from their faith. They may ignore you or even disown you, but they won’t actually chase you down and intimidate you.

Most religions aren’t anything like Scientology, though.

Mark “Marty” Rathbun left the organization ten years ago after 25 years, during which time he’d risen to become the second highest official. As he was leaving LAX for his home in Texas recently, he was confronted by three current top officials whom he identified as Jenny Linson, Marc Yager, and Dave Bloomberg.

It was an incredibly bizarre encounter intended to make Rathbun snap and assault one of the three so they could call the cops and then sue. Fortunately, he kept his cool…
