Conservative blogger: Christians who laughed at my fear of demons are ‘far worse’ than atheists

Duggar-defending, yoga pants-hating Christian blogger Matt Walsh wants you to stop making fun of him for being afraid of an urban legend about summoning demons.

Matt Walsh, who writes for Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website, accused Christians of heresy if they weren’t as terrified of the “Charlie Charlie challenge” recently denounced by a Vatican exorcist.

“I know we’re perpetually lowering our expectations for Christians in this part of the world, but I will stubbornly cling to the insistence that we all ought to refrain from condoning or participating in Satanic rituals,” Walsh wrote. “I mean, we have to set the bar somewhere, right? Can I at least set it here?”

Walsh claimed to be shocked that “a majority of U.S. Christians are not Christians” because they don’t believe in Hell, Satan, or evil – even though he concedes that polls from several years ago showed the same findings.

“Demons exist,” Walsh wrote. “Surely, every Christian must know this. Evil forces are at work in our world. As a Christian, you have to believe this. To deny it is to deny Scripture and to deny Christ’s saving work on the Cross.”

Walsh, who recently freaked out when the rapper Azealia Banks tweeted him a photo of her genitals after he criticized her political views, complained that his Facebook friends aren’t as alarmed by the “Charlie Charlie challenge” as he thinks they ought to be.

“When you play ‘games’ like this, you are inviting them in,” Walsh yelped. “That’s not a good idea. The Devil is prowling around the Earth like a lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8), and the forces of Truth are fighting always to protect us from that hideous fate. This is war, not fun and games. To giggle over some demonic rite is like walking behind enemy lines during World War II to play pat-a-cake with Adolf Hitler. It’s beyond foolish. Beyond reckless. Far, far beyond stupid.”

Walsh complained about “anti-Christian trolls” who mocked his fears of the game, which is essentially a simplified Ouija board cooked up as a viral marketing campaign for a horror film, but he was even angrier at religious people who made fun of him.

“They are worse — far worse — than the average atheist,” Walsh said. “At least the atheist rejects Christ and faith outright. These Christians, on the other hand, accept Christ — only to turn around and mock what He teaches. The atheist turns his back on God; the heretic Christian looks God in the eye and spits in it.”

Trump’s lenders forgave hundreds of millions in debt — but he paid virtually no taxes on it: NYT

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times released the latest in a lengthy series about their findings within President Donald Trump's tax returns — this time, how he managed to punt or avoid millions of dollars in debt from constructing the Trump Tower in Chicago, while still not paying taxes on the amount he was forgiven.

"The president’s federal income tax records, obtained by The New York Times, show for the first time that, since 2010, his lenders have forgiven about $287 million in debt that he failed to repay. The vast majority was related to the Chicago project," reported David Enrich, Russ Buettner, Mike McIntire, and Susanne Craig. "How Mr. Trump found trouble in Chicago, and maneuvered his way out of it, is a case study in doing business the Trump way."

White House science office boasts Trump ‘ended’ COVID-19 pandemic

Published

On Tuesday, Politico reported that the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy is touting "ending the COVID-19 pandemic" among the list of supposed accomplishments of President Donald Trump's first term.

"The list, included in a press release from the Office of Science and Technology Policy, credits the administration for taking 'decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat, and defeat the disease,'" reported Brianna Ehley. "It’s the latest inaccurate claim from the administration on the severity of the pandemic, which Trump has downplayed throughout his reelection campaign, and as Vice President Mike Pence’s office is dealing with an outbreak."
