Fundamentalist Christianity in Second Life
Obviously I have no idea how many of the subscribers to this website use Second Life for either business or recreation. However, I would like to bring to the attention of members of this forum a truly poisonous fundamentalist Sim in Second Life, called "House of Prayer". Views expressed there are are about as unpleasant as they come, from condemning all gays to eternal hell, to ejecting anyone who continually questions their belief. I have personally been told that "I wouldn't be surprised if the scientists who invented smallpox vaccine actually invented smallpox too so that they could look good when they came up with the vaccine" during a "debate" on why their god waited till the 1960s to prevent smallpox. The Sim is a sick combination of the worst elements of Animal Farm 1984 and Lord of the Flies.
The trouble is, the views expressed there are, I believe, dangerous and a threat to education, scientific progress and personal liberty and they need to be countered. It is a commonly held belief there that the "rapture" is imminent. If someone who holds these irrational beliefs is elected to office and then acts on them, what kind of world will we be in? Why not nuke Iran if the world is ending within a lifetime and "we" will be in heaven and "you" will be in hell? Why bother with a healthcare program if you believe all illness can be healed by prayer?
I would recommend a mass descent on this Sim by atheists and round the clock filibustering
