Why religion sucks

The Cross

This story is unbelievable. Rebecca Hancock faces public humiliation for her sins. In the opinion of her church, she is living in sin. If she does not leave her boyfriend, then she faces having her sins broadcast to the rest of the congregation.

Now, she says, church elders have given her the worst ultimatum yet: In a Dec. 8 letter, they told her she either has to meet with them and end her "immoral" relationship or she will face public humiliation. “Bottom line, on January they 4th they are going to the church publicly with my sins, and my children will be sitting in church at the time,” Hancock told

Now, don’t get me wrong, but Rebecca Hancock is an idiot. Then again, so are the members of Grace Community Church in Jacksonville, Fla. Let me explain.

Her sin is living with a man and having sex without be married. OK – who cares? When they shame you in public, simply say, “Mind your own business”.

To the members of Grace Community Church, I don’t even know where to start. She left your church. She’s no longer a member. She does not want anything to do with your intrusive and backward shaming practices. Back off – it is no longer any of your business.

Oh, did I mention that Hancock is an idiot? She’s worried about the impact to her children. They are 20 and 18. My guess is that by now they know all about sex. What the hell are you worried about? Your actions are not a sin. Your action are considered normal social behavior. Your nutball church is acting like a friggen mind control cult. If you want that level of intrusiveness, join the LDS.

Geez – stupidity on this level blows my mind.

She needs to do one thing: stop giving a hoot, stop listening those church freaks! Tell those local child molesters to kiss her sweet little bottom!
