I hope the scandals create lots of atheists.
How ironic it would be to hear pepole say they became an atheist because of Jerry Falwell Jr.
If the worldwide systemic and repeated rape of children at the hands of priests didn't shake any faith, I don't know why one guy watching his wife get boned would. If people are questioning their faith is because they're realizing they had faith in something stupid just like most of the people that frequent this website, not because of Falwell.
Let the veil be lifted from their eyes. College students in the prime of their lives should be screwing their brains out. What a waste of youth and vigor in devotion to someone/something way too interested in their naughty thoughts/sex lives. Even Falwell knows it’s ok. Glad he got caught. Sex is not a sin! Sin is the lie!
Good!! I became an atheist because of the abusive behavior of the faculty and leadership toward me while at Baylor University.
By the way, Baylor University is one of the college coronavirus hot spots in the country. Why? All the partying going on with frats and with the athletes. I have a good friend there who taught one day...that's ONE day...had 2 students call that afternoon saying they had tested positive. She is now in isolation for 14 days teaching her classes online.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper noted that it isn’t the first time someone is hypocritical in the world of conservatism, professing one thing but doing another in their private lives.
With all due respect to Anderson... No shit Sherlock!
Just ask yourself who needs the convert of religion and Church the most - compulsive sinners. That's why the TV series "The New Pope" was so believable. Except with the US Evangelical church we don't have to imagine the pedantry and fornication that goes on behind the scenes, it regularly outs itself for all to see.
