Oh, mega fucked up. Squid's oldest kid, Iz, was going to a tennis day c4mp at a local huge church that has good facilities - a pool that's cheap, etc. And supposedly you don't have to have anything to do with their religion to join their sports club. There was a big flap about it on the MC list when Mitrani applied to the pool for the summer and they denied her membership because H1nduism was too different (the funny part being that she wasn't any sort of practicing h1ndu but her hapa kids were being raised totally secular.)
So - apparently Iz told her dad today that they have breaks from tennis-playing for b1ble study, and that they got told that they aren't going to Heaven unless whatever, and that dinosaurs never existed, and that science is from Satan, etc. etc. Who knows the details! It's fucking appalling. Why am I surprised that they turn out to be actively evil? Because that's what it is to make a big noise about how you're not jamming your religion down anyone's throat, and then having a secular facility and cheap camp whose brochures lie and say there's no religion but that all being a HUGE LIE. Squid says she's not mad but will warn everyone on the mailing list, but I think she should be PISSED AS HELL and let everyone know it. She also hopes that Iz has a solid enough grounding in reality to keep her head on straight - but on the other hand Iz is SIX, and didn't tell anyone what was going on for several days.
I'm glad I listened to my inner Xtian-o-phobe b/c I remember looking at these people's web site when considering pool memberships - and thinking that they sounded like freakazoid bible thumping fanatic zombies. And poof! Indeed they are. To me that spells EXTREME DANGER. They are an evil cult! They are the Enemy. I can't even apologize to you Xtians out there, not even Rook - I fucking hate these people and I'm sorry they share even a tiny smidge of your faith. "Diversity and tolerance" my ass. Fuck these asshole fanatics, I have absolutely no tolerance for their smiling lies.
