The Road To Atheism

religion-atheism_110646The mere mention of the word atheism strikes terror in the hearts of men. A stigma so strong, it holds almost equal weight with homosexuality.

So I just got back from work and was tired as fuck, but I decided to write this piece, one which is greatly influenced by the events that took place today.

It was 10 o’clock in the morning and I didn’t have much doing. Scrolling through my phone, I got a ping from a friend of mine, a very close acquaintance. He wanted to know if I’d be travelling home for Christmas, and my reply was that it was still under probability. He then cracked a joke about my parents bringing up the “marriage talk” when I get home. I gave him a ‘lol’ and he went on to say that it’s my biggest fear. I was quick to clear that up. For the record, my biggest fear is “getting old”, yeah I’m vain. I can’t think of anything like old age damaging my pristine, pretty face. The mere thought of it sends a cold chill down my spine.

‘Ebola could cleanse the world of atheists and gay people.’ – declares Christian broadcaster

wiles3-2-615x345An American Christian radio host, Rick Wiles, who enthusiastically looks for signs that the world will end, welcomed the Ebola virus as a cleansing force.

“This Ebola epidemic could become a global pandemic, and that’s another name for plague,” said broadcaster Wiles on his “Trunews” program.

“It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming,” he continued. “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography, and abortion.”

Wiles was enthusiastic on Tuesday about the arrival of Ebola, and it was reported that he warned the day before that President Barack Obama may intentionally spread the deadly virus through a mandatory and mysterious vaccine. That would somehow then allow Obama to declare martial law and force Americans into FEMA camps, the religious right broadcaster theorized.

“If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God,” Wiles warned. “If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”

#sigh. So atheists, homosexuals and sluts, right? So far, that’s the denomination of Africa’s population that’s dying from Ebola, no?
