Jamey Anderson says his time in Word of Faith Fellowship was a hell of physical and emotional abuse. Now, he’s determined to speak out about the North Carolina-based church so no more kids go through what he says he suffered. (Dec. 13) AP
SPINDALE, N.C. — Jamey Anderson vividly recalls being a skinny kid trembling on the floor of a dank, windowless storage room, waiting in terror for the next adult to open the door.
He was bruised and exhausted after being held down while a group of Word of Faith Fellowship congregants — including his mother and future stepfather — beat him with a wooden paddle, he said. As with most punishments at the secretive Christian church, Anderson said, it was prompted by some vague accusation: He had sin in his heart, or he had given in to the “unclean.” The attacks could last for hours until he confessed to something, anything, and cried out to Jesus, he said.
Sometimes even that wasn’t enough for redemption. Then, Anderson said, he would be locked in a dark place he called the “green room,” where he would bang his head against the brick wall, wanting to die.
Exactly nobody saved them.
Mile and miles of Christians ,worldwide.And most of them all active enough too,in reverently going about doing their ongoing weekly “church buzz”.No worries . What basically amount to “mega hours” of Jesus “butt licking” contests (not sure how Jesus would feel “honored” to be actively aware of how he’s being “constantly butt-licked” by followers within
church groups idol chambers.While meanwhile so many children are still suffering faith abuses?).The main goal ,for what motivate them is that they hope by being active in doing so, that they’ll then also get to be able to save their own skin (constant butt licking/for eternal life “swap-meet” buzz),an therefore also get to live forever in an-eternity they hope for (Note: an eternity that lack any evidence)
Church life has turned into a commercial type of self adulation .Church folk see themselves as morally superior human beings, for getting actively involved in swooning throng of Jesus butt licking sessions .
Even if atheists were to agree to “participate” with Christian’s, regularly ,some time within the designated time for attending one of their Jesus “butt licking” session’s
Would still make no difference.
Because meanwhile children will still be being blatantly abused (IE: because religious tyranny still wont get addressed). Within abusive faith groups.Lives are still being ruined, by groups claiming to be following God.Some children are forced to need to try live out lives that perhaps might even be best described as being almost more-like a kind of “hell on earth” experience (tyranny disguised as right of religious freedom)
- Christian’s still wont freely admit that freedom of religion is really no more than a pipe dream (the idea is impossible, as it also rends itself “open to these acts of faith abuse”)
- Christian’s generally would also seem to care far more about being more active in taking part in methods of saving their own ass for an eternity, than they care about child abusive damage that a bullshit form of freedom of religion will allow to constantly happen to certain people within this present life happening here on earth right now
Its highly disgraceful
And as an atheist (being that we often still constitute the minority. Or we are considered “society late comers”, being that colonization was usually also coupled along with types of religious domination) there is so much less that we are able to do as atheist about this ongoing problem . For now
Religious people need to quickly (wake up)become far more active themselves (in regard to “reformation” of outdated laws)
Religious folk should be “helping to lead” the way (rather than helping to drag the chain)
Religious people might do more to “honor” their Jesus . If in fact they were to spend far less time in church groups involved in their weekly “Jesus butt licking” parades
And would spent more time in taking action against ongoing faith abuse
“The world is waiting for believers” to hurry up and step forward to help provide motivation for reform to quickly occur (the waiting often feels like one were almost involved in trying to drag a “dead horse” uphill)
Tedious .Bloody tediously slow
Why would the world wait ?
Well partly because, generally non believer’s are not wanting “to need” to turn toward using any acts of force (as it would always be far-nicer to be able to feel like, we didn’t need to revert to any use of force. IE :Willing participant= less ill feeling)
Far nicer for atheists. Far nicer even for politician’s feelings as well too. Humans are human and as such would all prefer to experience the best outcome (“consent” is naturally far better experience, than what use of force ever is.As one action is about “forcefully” pushing against the will of someone else)
Naturally we (atheists) would still “live in hope” that perhaps there is still a slight chance,that some theists might “still be alive” enough (not
totally absolutely drunken wasted-out on all the constant Jesus-butt licking mania that turn the Christian throng into “swooning” dead-like human-mindless-mass, who can then easily joyfully turn a blind eye to constant child abuses still occurring under the banner of religious liberty)
It’s totally disgraceful.And also highly “dishonorable” to both Jesus and to humanity as well ,that there are still so few believers caring to get actively involved in process of religious reforms which by now are also in fact “long overdue”
So long overdue !!
And embarrassingly so
Meanwhile so many children are still suffering serious religious abuses
From one generation unto another generation.Faith abuses still continue (year 2018)
Nobody is saving them
As if nobody (enough) really cares.Then this is obviously exactly how it would also be expected to feel-like too “to the person” themselves who’s suffering from abuse.
Constantly living with the thought, that “nobodies actively intent on saving them”
How many people can imagine living like that?.Only folk unlucky enough, to have ended up in a abusive group.Too often merely via their “fate of birthright”
Why should life be left to be ruled by luck ? (luck of who you were born to)
Our governments require motivation “through” active vocal/written support from believers .Believers themselves need to lead. To help ease and pave the way forward (actively prove to act like moonbeams for Jesus).
What will the believers have done to help save their own soul’s, if in fact they mainly spent miles of their time actively participating in “constant Jesus butt licking session’s” in
church idol-ism groups?.
While also happily walking on by (turning a blind eye) so many constantly occurring religious faith abuses (Luke 10: 25-37)
