CULTURE WAR OVER KANSAS EASTER SUNDAY CHURCH SERVICES AMID CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC EVOKES JONESTOWN JUXTAPOSITION!!!



#TBT and a note for those who don't remember . . .

Jim Jones was an American civil rights preacher, faith healer and cult leader who conspired with his inner circle to direct a mass murder-suicide of his followers in his jungle commune at Jonestown, Guyana

Accordingly . . .

Here at TKC we don't want anybody to "drink the Kool-Aid" no matter their beliefs . . . And so we provide these news links from "many sides" of the debate to merely offer more info and insight:

It’s not kool aid, it’s fish tank water!

If your church continues to insist on actions that harms other people, placing them in danger of spreading a fatal illness, you might be in a fake religion.

Quit. Get out. De-program.

No real religion would require you to harm others.

Oh, pack the churches. Ignore all the science. Darwin was wrong... probably.

meeting in large groups right now is equivalent to Russian roulette.

does God want Russian roulette sacrifices by a group, i.e., suicide at a certain probability?

that's canaanite and pre-judeo-christian.

I have no patience for religious fanatics.

They are demonstrating that religion is mental illness.

Bryon favors the authoritarian fanatics.

In NJ 16 people in a service spaced wide apart in church meant for 293 were all shut down and fined...that's OK in his mind.

Did you know Diane Fienstein, Nancy Pelosi, other democrats held fund raisers for Jim Jones? They thought he was a hero for getting people off of the streets. They didn't have sense enough to see what he was up to. They raised millions for him, and when he killed everyone by way of KOOL-AID they acted like they didn't know him. Stupid democrats KOOL-AID is for idiots.

Byron was born with incurable mental defects and that’s why he hates God and people. Most of all, he hates himself.

Now THAT is comedy my friend.

Most of those claiming some higher moral authority to meet and thusly increase the chances that others contract the virus would identify as protestant and profess a belief in the New Testament bible. Sadly, they are prioritizing their "no one tells me what to do" attitude above Part B of their own greatest commandment, LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. In the current situation, loving your neighbor means not increasing their chance of exposure or contraction of the virus.

I don't go to church. If you read the stories and watch the news most churches had banned in person gatherings before the governor's ban. Even after the lifting most still aren't gathering. The ones that are are following the same cdc guidelines as any other public place. What are Dems tripping about? The attorney general (a lawyer) in his statement discouraged gathering at church. He is doing his job by saying her order wasn't legal. We have to follow the law and trust people to keep themselves safe. Want to see violators, go to the store. The governor is just uptight because she overstepped her authority and got her hand slapped.

Kansas dodged a bullet in Kobach and decided to elect a sensible governor and was able to stay away from nationally embarrassing headlines for almost 2 years.

Then the Kansas GOP in the House and Senate said 'hold my beer'.

Thanks Republicans for putting us back on the map. The nation is once again looking at us in ridicule, disbelief, and disgust.

Jim Jones was an atheist and a Marxist...even wikipedia admits that.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Yet many of his followers believed he was a man of God right until the Kool-aid hit'em.

^^^^ and yet they knew he was an atheist Marxist. Weird.

What an incredibly "pro-life" move by the GOP...

The Peoples Temple, founded by Jim Jones, was a Left Wing, atheist, Marxist Cult and Socialist Commune. The people knew what they were part of.

The Cult 45 was found by a fake billionaire populist conman that bilked money from military charities and convinced followers his serial cheating and payments to professional sex workers was consistent with Evangelical values.

Despite insulting law enforcement, many subordinates from the campaign being jailed, and the collaborated illegality with the White House that led to impeachment; followers continue to profess false adherence to the rule of law.

Cultists allow no volume of pathological lies to interrupt their blind faith.

Yeah, read that bible written by folks who insisted the Earth was flat and the Sun revolved around it. Plus gawd hasn't done a damn thing to fix the virus. George Carlin had it right. Proy to Joe Psche.
