5 thoughts on “Facebook Fundies: Gettin’ Crunk with Jesus!”

I once heard an incredible sermon that brought so much meaning to the Ephesians 5:18 “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit.” (Basically he encouraged us to be filled with something (namely: Jesus) other than alcohol – and I think we can all agree that the misuse of alcohol for fulfillment is a bad path to be on) However – it’s clear that the beauty of that sermon is not represented in these internet excerpts. Despite some of my skeptical views, I think there is some great stuff in the bible (and clearly there is some stuff that is obviously NOT great). This being said: On one hand I laugh at the absurdity of these people, and maybe they are only putting stuff out there “because it’s the internet”, but my other fear is that they are truly this disillusioned.

Continuing on this topic: Several years ago I remember hanging out with some friends and one guy saying “I want to need Jesus like a crack Baby needs crack”. At the time, even naive little me recognized the absurdity of the statement (not to mention the lack of respect for an actual “crack baby”). However amongst the others people nodded, perhaps even found the comment prolific – I found it unsettling, and now I see it even more as so….

This is just where my mind went when I saw this.

The first one remembered of a soda sold in northern Brazil callerd “Jesus”. It was a very very sugary one, supposedly guarana-based, but I could only feel a very sweet tutti fruti taste or so.

Ironically, the brand is name over the company owner Jesus Gomes, who is himself an atheist.

Oh, the best part is that Coca Cola Company bought Jesus in 2001.

A car accident caused her to become a nymphomaniac? Hilarious.

Apparently this same thing happened to another woman in San Francisco in 1964. She was hurt in a cable car accident and sued the railway for half a million dollars and was awarded $50,000 in 1970.

Part of me is amused by the faux-pop-culture spin being put on good old fashioned religious psychosis, but most of me finds this quite frightening. It’s one thing to believe in some imaginary sky-dude that helps your team win and hands out random miracles (while inexplicably withholding them from others), and a whole ‘nother thing to willingly participate in and even celebrate and encourage religious hysteria, which is quite clearly pathological.

It doesn’t make that much difference whether you are writhing around and babbling and sobbing because you’ve ingested massive psychoactive substances, or because your brain is secreting them on its own, you’re still batshit crazy, and batshit is scary.
