   Would a Halloween play involving the brutal killing of Christians and Family Association members be considered vilification? Strangely maybe not

If people reenact scenes from "hell" wherein demons are beating women and homosexuals, then don't they become the demons?

When the empty promises of eternal life (after you die) and salvation (after you die) don't work, you whip out the hollow threats of eternal torment (after you die) and damnation (after you die).

At least that Prosperity Gospel heresy promises you rewards and punishments while you're still alive to experience them.

Oh, I'm sure they've had them for a very long time now. This particular one probably just a case of a bright-eyed, eager youth pastor trying to be as "timely" and "relevant" as possible.

"Jesus is like, totally cool and radical! And being gay is really square, man."

/ The real question is: How much are you willing to bet that this youth pastor having thick-rimmed square glasses and/or a goatee?

This is what happens when I edit the structure of a sentence before posting and then fail to proofread the whole thing.

I'm not really sure what you're getting at here. But Hell Houses are less 'Jesus is like, totally cool,' and more like, 'If you're a farking queer, you're going to burn in hell for all eternity. Here are some actors in our 'hell house' that will show you how they'll suffer.'

That is the overt message of hell houses, yes. But hell houses for me also have an ethos of "See, we Christians can have scary fun on Halloween, too! We're cool like that." Dressing up in gory costumes can be fun for the people putting on the show, and the best part is if your stated goal is to scare people into heaven, your fun is divinely endorsed, (as opposed to just scaring people because it's Halloween, which is worldly and unchristian.) Plus, the people putting it on get to feel bold and unafraid to tackle current events by condemning gays and people who have unapproved sex.

So, I tend to see it as half "Quit being gay or demons will play with your intestines" to outsiders, and half "See, serving Jesus can edgy and fun."

I'm surprised that specific kind of fundie derp carries any kind of "credibility" outside of the US.
