The Kansas-based hate group often protests military funerals and LGBT*Q communities with signs reading “God Hates Fags,” famously blaming gay people for 9/11 and the deaths of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, among other tragedies.
But God disagrees…
This hate group goes around saying that God hates gay people. Nonsense! I love gay people.
Across the spectrum of world religions, there are a plethora of supposed ways to motivate God to execute you or at least want you dead. Here are some of them, compiled from the scriptures of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Mormonism, Hinduism and Confucianism.
Of course, each of these religion’s texts were written ages ago and are now interpreted in a variety of non-deadly ways. Still, taken literally, this summary of misdeeds that warrant death in each belief system is at least intriguing if not amusing…
Missionaries are in the business of bringing souls up from the depths. They find those who are lost, stuck beyond hope — those who have hit bottom — and they bring hope and salvation.
So when a brood of ducklings all fell into a storm drain as they were following their mother, it’s a good thing this mormon missionary was nearby. He saw an opportunity to fulfill his calling, and he answered…
In an article for his followers last week, creationist Ken Ham expressed his strong disbelief in the existence of aliens, since “The Bible…teaches that earth was specially created, that it is unique and the focus of God’s attention.”
He’s confident enough in their nonexistence that he believes looking for them is sin, because “the search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man’s rebellion against God.”
BUT if aliens do exist, they’re screwed…
You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation. One day, the whole universe will be judged by fire…
So what does eminent astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson say in response to this hypothesis?
Since then, Suzanne and I have kept in contact, and a couple months ago I got the skinny on her planned “chapter two” of her project, officially called “The Playing House Project,” in which she and her stoic mannequin husband renew their wedding vows.
I took the opportunity to send Suzanne a few questions to get a deeper understanding of her project. She graciously took the time to thoughtfully answer them, and to give us an exclusive scoop on the renewal ceremony photos.
You’re the first to see these, so enjoy!
Suzanne, thank you for taking the time to answer some questions. I came across your work in mid-February this year and was delighted by it. Since then, on our site alone, it’s been shared 150,000 times on Facebook. And I know you’ve had a lot of press elsewhere too. But you’ve been committed to this project for a long time. How does it feel to see something into which you’ve invested so much time and energy garner the exposure it has recently?
It’s just like jumping into a hot spring. Shocking at first, and wonderful once you get used to it. I’ve said before that I’m pleased as punch to be born at the time I was. Not only because as a woman, I’ve got more choices in life than any generation before, but I’m also amazed at how much opportunity, and exposure, living in the information age provides.
