sorry I been gone....things have been super busy here, anyway I did get more information. Its a sort of baptist church...not affilated with the one the moderator was talking about.
I decided to take your advice not to visit... here is some info about it.
It seems like your run of the mill church on their site....but the stuff that comes out of his mouth sometimes is troubling.
After Hurricane Sandy, I was discussing with him about the magnitude of this storm and how some say global warming plays a part in the intensification of storms like Sandy. He corrected me and told me that it was "God's punishment on the North East for their rebellion"
My jaw hit the floor....he was always very kind and charitable to those afflicted by natural disasters like the time he volunteered to help get trees off people's houses after a local tornado outbreak. And now, he believes they somehow "deserve it".
My sister also agrees that he has lost his mind since he joined this group.
There was another thing he said that bothered me which he was talking about the rapture and after the rapture any Christians left behind have to cut their head off to get into heaven. Yes it is in the bible....but so is killing your child for being disobediant. I mean some stuff in that book is best to be ignored....but his church leader decided to focus on that which is bothersome. What if that leader decides to tell his congergation that the rapture had occured and they all had to chop thier heads off to get into heaven?
Whats weird is he can be totally rational in every area of his life except religion....enter religion into the conversation and its like a switch flips and he turns into pat robbertson on crack.
He is already pretty well brainwashed...I guess I will have to ride this out and be there when he falls apart. I wish I had more options than to just watch this horror unfold in slow motion.
