Heaven For The 1%

Eternalprogression

Mormons believe in three heavens and one hell. The celestial kingdom is the most desirable:

There are also different sub-degrees of glory within the celestial kingdom, and the highest degree can be reached only by couples who are married together in thetemple, and in which the husband has joined what Mormons call the “Melchizedek priesthood." (Pretty much every devout male Mormon joins the priesthood by the time he’s married.) Those who attain the highest degree become gods in the afterlife, meaning that they can bear new children in heaven, and may even have their own planets.

Right-Wing Official Pushes Bible Death Message at Obama

A prominent Kansas elected official has made news in recent weeks after an email he passed around seemed to pray for the death of President Obama.

As president Obama made his way to the podium before his State of the Union address on Tuesday night there was a poignant reminder of the culture of hate and violence that has marked our public life in recent years. Obama paused for a sustained greeting and hug with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) who had just announced her resignation from Congress to complete her recovery from an assassination attempt.

The shooting of Giffords and others outside a supermarket in Tucson was widely seen as the inevitable result of the era of hate radio and partisan invective in which political differences are vilified as treason, Nazism and even terrorism. The likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and the overt race-baiting rhetoric of the Tea Party have fallen out of the news, but the effects have lingered. Indeed, a death prayer against the president by a prominent Kansas elected official has been in the news in recent weeks -- and has been brushed off by many as a joke -- as if the last three years had not happened.

Kansas House Speaker Michael O'Neal is resisting calls for his resignation in the wake of controversy over emails about President and Mrs. Obama he forwarded to the Republican caucus. In one of two emails he thought were funny, he compared First Lady Michelle Obama to the Grinch and called her "Mrs. YoMama"; in the second he (perhaps unwittingly) invoked an imprecatory prayer, in effect, calling for the death of the president.

O'Neal has apologized for both emails and insists that he was not calling for the president's death. But of course, even if the email was carelessly forwarded -- that is still what the verse he cited is about.

O'Neal invoked a line from the Bible, Psalm 109 verse 8 which states: “May his days be few; and let another take his office.” (Translations used in press accounts vary, but the meaning remains about the same.)

O'Neal laughingly added: “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”

And a follow up on the Colorado Billboard, and the outrage of the Christians. Is it about the content? Or is it that our ere existence offends them?

 

Really great post by The Friendly Atheist, Hemant Mehta 

 

Really, Really, Really Inoffensive Atheist Billboards

Richard Wade here.

In the continuing debate over the benefits and drawbacks of “in your face” atheist billboards versus “soft sell” atheist billboards, the assertion that the religious public will claim that they’re “offended” whether the message is strident or mild is frequently put forward.

As a good skeptic, I thought that perhaps this proposition should be put to a test. So in a half-serious, half-lighthearted spirit, I propose that we try displaying billboards that are truly innocuous, so that the only thing that might provoke “offense” would be the word “atheist” in the billboard sponsor’s name. Then we would see if the claim is true that “our mere existence is what offends them.”

Below are my suggestions. The sponsoring organizations depicted are merely my whimsical choices. Their approval of these billboards is not implied.

See it all here. (more funny billboards!)

Colorado Billboard: "God Is An Imaginary Friend"

A coalition of atheist groups in Colorado purchased a series of billboards in Denver and Colorado Springs they hope will spark debate and encourage community gathering and thought.

The billboards will read “God Is An Imaginary Friend-Choose Reality, It Will Be Better For All Of Us.”

According to Colorado Coalition of Reason (COCORE) one of the motivations for the billboards was a concern that religious individuals feel they have “not only the right, but the obligation to force their religious views on others.” The group cites increased proselytizing in the military, educational systems, and government and growing attacks on the LGBT community and abortion providers as evidence of the ever-expanding influence of religion in our culture.

The group went out of its way to state they were not trying to offend believers. “If you disagree with the sentiments of the sign, please don’t be offended. We are more interested in opening a dialogue than upsetting you. We don’t ask you to stop believing in your versions of a super-natural being. We do ask that you consider not forcing your religious views on others.”

This is not the first time the coalition of atheists put up billboards to spread its word. In 2008 and 2010 the group paid for billboards that asked “Don’t believe in God? You are not alone.” and also one that protested the Denver City Council Building nativity scene.

It’s a simple point but one that will no doubt cause controversy with the significant evangelical population in the state. If only this message were as welcome in public discourse as the fidelity of a person’s faith.

In Bed With Evangelicals

If it weren't also horribly "sexually stunted," Tracy Clark-Flory would be quite entertained by “Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy With Your Spouse" by Pastor Ed Young and his wife, Lisa:

David Sessions deconstructs the evangelical obsession with sex:

[E]vangelicals are intensely concerned about keeping pace with the culture around them. It’s a weird form of progressivism, a fear of being left behind by history, even if it is rather spotty and selective. So because sex is such a huge deal culturally and politically, it is “on the brain,” and tends to push that sort of issue to the forefront of the discussion. I think at one point there was a sense, even if it isn’t as raw now, that talking about sex in a frank, explicit way could make up for the ways evangelical theology forces believers to remain culturally backward.
