Pentecostal berserker

It really is like shooting fish in a barrel. I started this little project in an effort to show my Christian detractors that large numbers of Christian pastors exhibit the same amoral proclivities which atheists are often accused of. Every day I find another example, often i find three or four. My email box overflows with suggested stories. It really is too easy. Take today's fallen pastor - Thomas Holloway. The pastor for the Christ Temple Pentecostal Church - or at least he was the pastor. After attempting to kill his wife  by stabbing her with a pocket knife, he is more likely to be referred to as inmate 43256. What will his excuse  be - "the devil was in me?"

Here are some other headlines from the morally challenged:

I recieve about 15 a week... I could write a big post for each one, but I'm tired. It has been a long week.

These stories need the exposure you're giving them. It's the Achilles' heel of the bible brigade, and they know it.

For a recent post I had occasion to review some of the attitudes toward atheists out there, and one poll had over 70% of respondents in the U.S. agreeing that atheists shouldn't be allowed to use civic auditoriums to promote their message. The prejudice out there is rife and also traffics in outrageous stereotypes with no basis in reality.

For example, prior to altering its definition of atheism (likely after complaints) - the Wikipedia rip-off Conservapedia - included paedophilia and bestiality as atheist characteristics, with no parenthesis or even a smiley face add-on. They literally believed it at the time of that entry.

Absolutely nail these f'ers if they are abusing the trust of kids and otherwise revealing themselves as two faced con artists. These exposes says as much about their religion as it says about their ethics, and the public need to be more aware of the underside.

Great work.
