So I Do Not Have To

Rewire News has posted a review of The Family (Almost-Blockbuster Netflix Series ‘The Family’ Exposes a Christian Network Whose God is Power). I got through two of the episodes but have been resisting viewing any more. The sanctimonious surety exposed that these people think they can do what they are doing because the “are right” makes me want to gag.

  1. I watched the series as well. You’re not missing much by skipping the last two. Isn’t it wonderful doing the Lords errand on taxpayer dime?

    • Not to mention the beauty of circumventing diplomacy for Jesus

      • I don’t know how many laws are actually being violated, but I suspect it isn’t just a few.

        • They act like Jesus is getting them access to world leaders, but without their positions they’d never get an ear at all.

          • The others don’t give a shit about Jesus (Benjamin Netanyahu?), what they give a shit about is power. The discussion is about power on both sides, power only. Religion is just a tool.

  2. I think it’s important to watch – especially because they touch on things like the Kill the Gays bill in Uganda. We must know what we’re fighting.

    • In general I agree with you. I have forced myself to watch a great many things I find abhorrent for just that reason. In this case I already knew much of the content of that documentary and was viewing it as a synopsis of that material. (The doc was prepared from a book and additional material.)

      The proselytizing in Uganda shows the most abhorrent aspects of these religious zealots. They cannot even conceive of “turning the other cheek” or “judge not. lest you be judged.”

  3. Religious people acting with smug certainty, and for narrow selfish ends? Shocking.
