" I am here against my will. My family did not put me here, and they do not know where I am. They did not sign a contract, and they are not paying for me to be here." https://therevealer.org/hunted-predation-and-pentecostalism-in-guatemala/
“See the guy over there? In the green shorts?” Alejandro pointed to a young man named Santiago. “I had to grab him from his bed...because his mom paid [the pastor for] us to do it.”
“It’s what I have to do to eat better, to sleep a little longer, so I can get a shower here... Hunting is why the pastor keeps me here. The pastor hunts me because I hunt for him.”
Christianity is a fucking trip, man.
And before you start telling me "love the sinner, hate the sin" or "they're not REAL Christians", I'm just gonna say this:
By their works shall ye know them.
Last but not least, here's a link to the book the article is taken from: https://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/H/bo38871146.html
You are good at this game... I approve.
@thegibson Recovering Catholic who used to invite the Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses in, feed them, and quote Scripture back at them for hours, right here.
@thegibson ...they stopped coming after a while. Especially the Mormons. I was just making too large of a dent, I guess.
I used to do the same thing, but at the door... inviting them in made me worry about vampires.
@thegibson I'll take a vampire over a propaganda-crazed human any day. At least vampires have RULES.
