1. Rick Warren is a parasite – Despite having one of the best-selling books in history, the times have been tough for Warren and he’s down a cool million dollars. So what did he do? Begged his less privileged followers for money. In a single weekend, he raised $2.4 million in donations, which he’s touting as a miracle after having simply attributed his financial shortfall to a poor economy. And sadly, I don’t know if he’s even deliberately taking advantage of people. This is how these douchebags think. They ascribe all their opinions to an unknowable god, build up huge flocks of credulous people willing to believe, and then see any exploitation of those people as god’s will. Maybe Warren’s next book should be titled The Profit-Driven Life.
2. Is it wrong for me to wish an agonizing death by cancer for Anne McNerney? – This woman has written a New Age book called The Gift Of Cancer: A Call To Awakening, where this cancer survivor describes the horrible disease thusly:
“cancer is your ticket to your real life. Cancer is your passport to the life you were truly meant to live.”
. . .
“Cancer will lead you to God. Let me say that again. Cancer is your connection to the Divine.”
Go fuck yourself and fuck this insane “positive-thinking” bullshit!
The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith. He is said to be a Buddhist. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So, my message to Tiger is, ‘Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.’
Wow, this guy needs medication.
