How do you know if you have a satanic pregnancy? I feel like this is been under-explained. Not that I’m in the market for a devil’s spawn, but I’ll be re-watching Rosemary’s Baby so I know the signs.

I’m a little shaky on Evangelical dogma. What is a Satanic pregnancy? I’m not sure the whole, “reading the Bible an interpreting it on your own,” was such a good idea.

An evangelical preacher is a regular columnist in our local paper. I don’t generally agree with him, but he has a thoughtful take on many issues. He wrote a real barn-burner of a column once about the “prosperity gospel,” saying that when his first wife was diagnosed with cancer, a lot of people in their church Read more

I’m a bit tired today, but I’m still a little lost as to what constitutes a “Satanic pregnancy.” Are we literally talking Satan himself being the father? Or just a member of the Satanic temple having or fathering a child?  Or is it a Satanic pregnancy if conception happens through anything other than strict missionary Read more

Apparently a celebrity Scientologist. Which tells all you need to know about the state of Scientology.

I guess a “satanical” pregnancy is any non-Christian one but all I’m thinking of is Christian Satan going around impregnating a bunch of ladies to try to bring around the Anti-Christ (and the end of the world? which Evangelicals want?) but then this lady uses her magic, I mean, prayers, to flush all of his kids and Read more

I am very excited and very nervous. My home safety inspection to become a foster/ adoptive parent is on the 6th. I am not totally ready. I need to get a locksmith over to lock the drawer where I now have to keep the knives and sharp stuff, as well as a lock to my office in the house which is a study in chaos and there Read more

Thank you! It’s a really good feeling, that I’m going to have to get used to. I come from a poor background, and having this level of financial security is hard won.

Anybody want to start doing a fashion thread? I know that there’s a usual cooking thread as well as shelter cat thread but I don’t really see much about fashion. And I’m a junkie. Can’t afford what I’d really love but I make do with lots of secondhand clothing stores and occasionally buy an actual new piece. SO.

I am here for the Captain Marvel sequel and a third National Treasure movie.  I unabashedly love the MCU and ridiculous treasure hunt movies. Which is why I loved The Librarians and am enjoying the hell out of Warehouse 13.

I have watched Captain Marvel many times. (I made sure it was the first thing I streamed on Disney+.) But no matter how many times I watch it, I still cry when Just a Girl starts playing. I know exactly what they were doing to manipulate me emotionally, but I succumb to it. I still tear up a little when I watch Wonder Read more

As a holder of the ever useful BA is history, and fan of Nicolas Cage, I’m excited about a new national treasure movie. I will admit to watching the other ones numerous times. I like bad movies.

I mean if you didn’t cry when Yondu died you don’t have a heart.

People are incredibly suggestible. Every age has had their hucksters and snake oil salesmen. Social media just makes it easier and cheaper to reach a wider audience. Read more
