If instead it was to do with the film industry,about Hollywood and about the Harvey Weinstein issue, with some prominent film industry reporter that was busily trying to down play and kind of insinuate that perhaps sexism and sex abuse really wasn’t any real big issue within the film industry .
Then they wouldn’t be able to get away with it
No. They wouldn’t get away with it (not any longer in year 2018)
Wouldn’t stand a chance
Because widespread public anger would very soon be heard to erupt vocally. The general public would quickly jump on it.Be heard almost simultaneously “all calling the reporter out” on regard of the great disservice they’d be choosing to do, to justice
Be heard almost simultaneously ( with very little hesitation)
But in this instance (Massimo Introvigne’s review ) .Instead its a report about issues to do with religion,(not the film industry). Its sex abuse again but also is sugar coated with dowry of religious based orientation ,and as such the man already has a large audience “willing and waiting” that are already eagerly quick to swallow exactly whatever Massimo Introvigne’s review has to say anyway “hook line an sinker” .
Far more of them will be likely to want to “up and continue to run with the idea of it” ,than the amount who wont and may instead decide to first stop an question an deeply-ponder over it
These Christian just (traditionally) love to be lapping-up these type reviews (type that sound blissfully peaceful. Void of need for different prompt approach of radical change) . As many were “already been spoon fed” on exactly this same kind of stuff anyways,even back from days of their early childhood
Massimo Introvigne is merely more or less preaching to the choir (Because millions of Christian are already hoping to hear what he says .Pretty much so anyways)
Most Christians in general wont even bother to question or ponder over what been said here in the review even anyway.Wont even bat an eyelid. Because they already faithfully live in hope, just hoping like anything that perhaps it’s actually mostly all quite correct anyway (they faithfully hope to believe that issues of freedom of religion, is just fine and dandy)
As such (living faithfully) they wont even think to bother to question it. This review will be simply-accepted by many without question, like almost as if it were word of God, and in much the same sense like what these folk also simply accepting sermons already that they will all hear from their families favorite preacher, down at their local church group (mostly all accepted via sense of an “un-questioning passive faithfulness” also)
We shouldn’t expect to hear any vocal Christian public outrage (like what can already occur within the film industry),because Christians instead are already so eager to still swallow the religious freedom mantra they have always been force fed on, through Church meeting and what not.Via method of their Christian indoctrination. They wont dare want to “even entertain” the idea that they might have been fed-up (indoctrinated) on lies
Most Christians will simply shrug their shoulders (without a care) an still carry on just as if everything that’s been said, is just obviously all fine and dandy (after all it’s exactly what they were already hoping they might be able to hear being said anyway)
Because religion has been wrapped up in cotton wool.
Always been sugar coated (automatically deemed to always be of public benefit, without any question)
This is the traditional line that people have generally been led to believe
What’s worse is that now days even non-Christians still wont dare to question or say anything about this review themselves either.No they wont. For they too have also be force fed on the same bullshit, and as such also have become well accustomed to freely accepting the idea that religion is always automatically deemed to be of public benefit. Their own generation, and the many generations that had previously came before their own generation, had always also been fed on exactly the same bullshit too, about religious freedom (even in many cases when it had obviously more likely involved aspects of religious tyranny)
They’d already all faithfully accepted the belief anyway, so that it was by-now also thought automatically immoral,for people to even dare think “to begin” to question it (all too often still for now anyway)
People in general have (traditionally) all learned to live with it.Very few even think to deeply question anything much about religion ,even now in year 2018.Most of them (luckily) are not personally effected, as their own lives are not ever been lived within any extremely manipulative confine’s of some cult setting (luckily)
Society (even the secular side) also evolved with this huge deeply ingrained sense of indifference ,specially in regard to issues that surround aspect of religion
Generally the pubic has in part, been self govern, by their own cowardly act of freely accepting this sense of taboo
Shame on them
For after all. Humans are very much like sheep in some ways. As there is only around 5 % of human who would even care to bother to deeply ponder or question (because it “uses up energy” to do so)these matters that much within their lives, the majority other 95% just follow along with the lead of what they may see other people around them are doing
The film industry is of very secular nature. Natural minds are “far more inclined” to be influenced by empathy .To react through feeling of empathy (not govern by religion).And so in that sense, it is also not at all surprising that there was in fact such public outrage ,lately , in response to ongoing issues of sexism and sex abuse (the film industry is in no way closely connected to the taboo aspect that religion has been wrongfully afforded)
The film industry is of very secular nature thankfully . Deeply steeped in secular nature. (The film industry is not sugar coated and cotton wrapped-up in an air of “religious reverence”)
The film industry therefore doesn’t retain the luxury of a faithful throng of willing believers whom are already very eager to totally believe and willingly waiting to swallow “only” the sugar coated bullshit line
That kind of luxury has been only afforded to taboo aspect of religion
But Massimo Introvigne’s main “massimo mistake” is that he still “cannot erase” evidence .
Can he ? .
Evidence like this (public exposures ,see MICHAEL BACHELARD exposure http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/australia/98220593/Potential-witness-in-Exclusive-Brethren-sex-abuse-case-paid-to-remain-silent )
Or like this Actual recording of the July 25th 1970 ‘Aberdeen’ meeting
And so on !
Or erase the fact there is indeed a “mountain of evidence” already readily available too.In regard to cults and ongoing faith abuses
Massimo Introvigne still don’t stand a shit show in hell of ever being able to erase all that huge mountain of accumulated evidence
And meanwhile we do still have miles more evidence still growing. Thankfully !.Meaning that Massimo Introvigne’s game of cat an mouse is also becoming far harder and harder to even play, more an more, as more time goes by (as more people are “now wising up” to the problem religious freedom)
Read for yourself what someone known as Miguel Martinez has to say about what he more or less seem to imply as Massimo Introvigne’s “right wing type antic’s” . Read all about it for yourselves via this following link here http://www.kelebekler.com/cesnur/eng.htm
Then also read for yourselves, what someone by the name Tilman Hausherr also has to say on the subject of Massimo Introvigne too . You can read about it for yourselves, via this following link here http://home.snafu.de/tilman/prolinks/cesnur.and.massimo.introvigne.html
Then also read what the apologetic’s index site itself as well also has to say on the subject of Massimo Introvigne,who co founded site named Cesnur . You can read about it yourself via this following link here http://www.apologeticsindex.org/c10.html
Then after that, ask yourselves this question, about why the Berkley Center for religion,peace and world affairs,site introduction of Massimo Introvigne might need to be certain to also stipulate,quote : “This individual is not a direct affiliate of the Berkley Center” ?.You can read about this fact yourselves, via this link here https://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/people/massimo-introvigne
My point is this. When religion has been treated specially.When its been constantly molly coddled and been allow to be wrapped up in cotton wool, and been treated as if questioning matters of religion would need to be seen as being a subject somewhat taboo
Its become a form of “protectionism”
This then leads to reason why religious nastiness can still find room to continue, at a time when nastiness within the film industry is already being addressed
How bloody disgusting is that ?
How disgusting the thought that film industry nastiness is being attended to “long before” religious nastiness will ever be finally attended to properly
Given that religion is also “supposed to be” almost acting as if it’s like the “leading light” of morality and in fact “justice” within this world. Within our society
These religious folk are supposed to be like the leading light
Even the Hollywood film industry hierarchy has far more decency (than what religious leaders seem prepared to display)to want to step up to the mark and accept some of their own responsibility in needing to actively help move changes forward (by acts of vocally reprimanding, and even publicly distancing themselves from past connection they may have had with the offending persons involved)
That’s right. Even the film industry hierarchy is openly displaying a far more concerned and careing adult-like active-nature than what folks of faith “care to bother” to do
How morally disgusting is that then?
By now, we should have already witnessed worldwide vocal disgust? (erupting from within circles of Christian folk)
But yet we still don’t as yet(even now in year 2018).
Because mostly they still don’t give a fucking damn?
Perhaps mainly because,this cult abuse doesn’t happen to effect themselves too-personally (IE: they were not unlucky-enough to be somebody who’s born into a cult)
Which means its not only disgusting, but rather evil (bad moral, posing as being-righteous)
1.While our society will quite happily erupt in public distaste in regard to news of ongoing cases of sexism and sex abuses occurring within our film industry’s
2. When news of cult abuses are heard, our society then simply cower in passive silent mannerism of indifference , being still too afraid to dare attend to any existing taboo’s surrounding religious freedom
Religious freedom that in fact doesn’t even actually exist , other than within the negative form of what will also then naturally also be expected to allow for forms of religious tyranny to flourish sometimes too
It is pure evil that religion is still afforded the “special right” to be wrapped up in cotton wool while being treated as if it’s still to remain taboo subject in regard of public scrutiny
There is no voice of vocal Christians erupting . So perhaps at best we can then only hope that there may continue to be even further decline happening within numbers of practicing Christian. In hope that a secular nature might then also continue to evolve and some day therefore even help humanity to also escape this sense of social-indifference
The very good news of course still is, thankfully, that Rebecca Stott’s latest book has still been read by a number of people who are interested . Enough people have still taken her book somewhat seriously enough.You can read more info,about that, via this following link here http://wikipeebia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1336&sid=2b630c384236948e436488ea2e137738
