The right-wing outlet BarbWire, founded by activist Matt Barber, recently published an essay written byPastor JG Smoothy, claiming that the end times are upon us.

While he concedes that famed conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones acts like someone “just fed him a steak and a flat of Red Bull intravenously,” Smoothy says that his claims are generally backed up by evidence, even if listeners are responsible for “chewing the meat and spitting out the aliens.”

According to Smoothy, all strife in America can be traced back to the evil intentions of our Luciferian Illuminati, and maybe even a Freemason-controlled government. Masterminds are creating racial and civil strife in order to destroy local police forces to bring in an era of nationwide martial law.

Smoothy has a message for those who complain about problems such as “mythical white privilege’ and those who are more concerned with “seeing the rights of Transgenders championed” than stopping women from having access to abortion care.

“Facts roll over their propaganda like a tank on a Snickers Bar.”

In his essay, he explains that those who dissent against the establishment or “the opposing race group” will be put into FEMA camps. These camps will be complete with horrors such as plastic coffins and chain link fences. And of course, the military will play a large role in all of this.

“That 1.6 billion rounds of ammo purchased by the Department of Homeland Security (over twice the amount used in WWII) are for the military to suppress those who would take part in the violence brought on against the government and in the race divide.”  

Smoothy predicts a civil war, which Canada and Mexico will become helplessly embroiled. This will somehow lead to the global dissolution of borders, religions, currencies, governments and Pope Francis establishing a world wide church.

“The book of Revelations anyone?”

Of course.

    The “end times” has been predicted endlessly (pun intended) for 2,000 years. Jesus himself said it would come within the lifetime of his disciples, and attention-seeking pundits have preyed on public emotions for fame and fortune ever since. (Remember the picture of the old man in white robe and a beard carrying the sign “The End Is Near” in Times Square during WWII?)

    We must remember that “preachers” and authors are salesmen. They sell promises that work on human fears and desires. They have no provable, tangible product. In the best sales technique, they use the fear of the judgement and destruction of the “end times” for their fear factor, and they promise that you will “live forever” and all the bad things you’ve ever done will be ignored – as long as you buy their books or put money in their organization.

    But I think that if I wanted to play that game, I’d choose another last name than “Smoothy.”

    A magic white man that lives in the sky, wears white robes, cant see him til you die, controls everything from parking spaces to life and death of babies, loves and hates you, you can live forever if you buy in, cost is 10% of your gross earnings, some of his disciples have private jets and mansions, zero product, just have to believe in magic and have faith, I should buy a franchise myself, sounds like a money maker to me. Its a scheme screwing those that are insistent upon answers to lifes questions, I am satisfied no knowing all the answers. this is it. You will only live on via gene pool folks, organic material and you will be recycled in due time. Its okay to die without all the answers, happens to all of us,now send me your money, I’ll give it to chldhood cancer research to stop real suffering and live no different than I do today, happily.. Religion is a hoax.

    Religion is a disease that affects everyone in contact with it or its fanatics. I am all for educating the ignorant but you cannot educate someone who wallows in their own stupidity like a farm animal. If the government offered tax rebates and incentives for civic studies and educating bigots it would help.

    Sadly, this is deadstate sensationalism. It is not like this is typical religion. The guy can’t even spell the Book of Revelation correctly.

    It’s not “typical” religion and it’s not even typical “evangelical” religion, of which Jimmy Carter is a member (although he left the Southern Baptists over their inflexible, in-compassionate dogma and apocalyptic views.) People like Smoothy are paranoid conspiracy theorists who rile up their gullible uneducated base. They are best ignored – except that we seem to be getting a lot of them involved in government (Bachmann, Carson, George W. Bush, Cruz, Huckabee and others) who would hasten world destruction to enable the “end times” because an arbitrary collection of 1,500 year old copies of copies of copies of 2,000 year old writings by unknown pre-enlightenment authors written decades after the events they purport to describe promised that Scotty would beam them up while leaving the rest of us to fry.

    Please don’t imply that your religious practice is typical of the rest of the world. If you have problems with a religious group that uses fear of judgement then change to a group that doesn’t do that. There are plenty to choose from.

    For Jim and Keith both: Please do not impose your sick religious understanding upon the rest of us. If you don’t like those groups then find another group. There are lots of healthy religious groups from which you may choose.

    I’m not sure to whom you addressed that comment, though it’s below my post. If there IS a St. Peter at the pearly gates and a God who judges everyone based on their beliefs (I believe we call that xenophobia), then He will be wise enough to understand why many cannot accept a God who has left nothing but copies of conflicting instructions 2,000 years ago and hasn’t said a word since.

    Yeah Mike, please read it. Your xenophobia is all part of your sick understanding of religion. You are welcome to your phobias. Just do not impose your sick understandings upon the rest of us who have a healthy religion. Millions of people read the Bible and see no conflicts. You can’t figure it out. Not our problem.

    You misread me completely, @Tom. It is expected that those who depend upon religion as a vocation would defend their beliefs, and I appreciate your position. I have never said that religion does not have a place in society and a purpose. It is an “opiate of the masses,” a source of comfort and hope when there is no other way, and it congregates usually well-meaning people into functional groups for doing compassionate tasks to help the needy. At its best, it is wholly useful and appropriate.

    But I have also spent many years studying the origins of biblical and other religious “scriptures.” I, like so many others, was raised in the church, and I remain a regular church member even today. But I’m no longer a literalist. I’m a scientist who has learned to appreciate how things work, what the laws of nature are and how they apply to observed phenomena. I don’t believe anyone ever walked on water or raised a putrid corpse to life. I don’t believe that a just Creator would set universal laws in motion and then violate them for show during a tiny slice of human history, unvetted and never again, and then leave such a trail of weak-linked, inconsistent, human-written documents to record such world-shaking events.

    There are some things that we do know. One is that there are no originals of any scripture – none – not the gospels, not Paul’s letters, not Acts, not Revelation, nothing but copies handed down through the centuries through the hands of scribes who had their own agendas, before and after Constantine. We know that a lot of what is in the current canon is based on what was known in the 16th century and that when older copies were unearthed (Dead Sea scrolls for the OT and Nag Hammadi for the NT) we found a lot of things had been added in the intervening years that did not appear in older copies. Churches never teach that for obvious reasons, and ironically a lot of what fundamentalist preachers rely on is material added later by unknown authors to the older copies. At least half of Paul’s letters are believed by most scholars to have been pseudepigrapha.

    Our Christian faith(s) are based on legend, myth and, yes, some facts. But we don’t know which is which. There is truth and there is Truth with a capital “T.” There is a lot of truth in the biblical accounts just as there is truth in the Quran and the ‘Vita. But it’s not all literal and a lot of it is forged. So what each of us believes is based not on fact or substantiated literature, but on what we were taught – by others who were taught, ad infinitum.

    You are a preacher, @Tom, so I expect such a response. Surely you have read the works of the great modern theologians such as Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Karen Armstrong, Bart Ehrman, Charles Kimball and even Jimmy Carter. Surely you are aware that virtually all of the great human wars and conflicts, the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Salem Witch trials, the KKK, all began as religious intolerance or irrational belief that the “power of God / Yahweh / Allah / Jesus / the Great Spirit” was with them. While human faith can be strong, it can also be wrong. It’s when we quit thinking and “submit to God” with mindless direction, that the world reaches another crisis. Fortunately there are good preachers who direct the good in religion and not violate the commandment against bearing false witness.

    The difference is that I read those things with an open mind. Anyone who thinks that all preachers are “salesmen” is rather closed. For what is is worth wars are never fought over religion. They are fought over politics and economics. Religion is twisted in to justify the greed. Will not argue the point with you but people with PhD’s in Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic disagree with your understanding of Biblical literature. Am continually told by such people that, if there is a God and we think that there is, the truths would be corrupted once they entered human language. Those with PhD’s remind me that archeology evidences that scripture has been well preserved in antiquity beyond any other literature. Further, what difference would such a God need for Council of Trent or any other group? We practitioners approach Biblical interpretation with great fear knowing that we are inadequate persons working with inadequate words.
    I keep reminding you that there are many preachers living in near poverty and busting their butts for those down and out. That you choose to focus on the other kind is your loss. Personally, I work with people at end of life. While each one is different, I could not imagine hospice without the hope of religion. That is why I don’t share your concerns for literalism. The same God that touches lives of Christians seems to give a peace to those of other faiths as well. God’s presence seems to pass through religion like water through a screen. In my opinion, you are way too focused on the screen.
    Not that I claim to be wise but most of us have no issue with a God who doesn’t do what we expect. It sure looks like this is an experiment of free will. How could a God step in and deliver justice without violating our free will? Religion is discovering the “for thou art with me” in the midst of the “though I walk through the valley.” No sure that most of us even talk about Hell anymore. I find your accusations of healthy both archaic and ill informed. It is like saying, “Some people use love
    to abuse. Therefore, love is bad.”

    There are PhD’s on both sides of that view and I listed but a very few above and would add many brilliant scientists from Sagan to Tyson to Einstein. I concede that religion is valuable when applied in a constructive way to people who believe it helps. As Tug McGraw of the Mets would agree, “Ya gotta believe!” But every word “from a creator” is written by humans. The creator has written nothing (the original 10 commandment tablets have conveniently disappeared), Jesus wrote nothing, and those who did write are unknown authors writing decades after the events they attempt to describe, written in a time of struggle for the very existence of their budding religious beliefs. Add to that the fact that all human knowledge of physics, chemistry, biology was virtually non-existent so they could write about supernatural events without fear of challenge.

    As I mentioned earlier, all human religion is based on claims of supernatural events, a prerequisite for its claims to power and authority. Buddah had a virgin birth long before Jesus. The Hindu religion is has different names for their gods but are forgiving of other views and religions, much to their credit for not teaching that their way is the only way. Mormans have their winged horses and amanuensis. Jews believe in the one God of Abraham as do Christians and Muslims. It’s all variation on a theme of hope and fear.

    But you also confirm my views that all religion is interpretation of an unknown, unprovable creator based on the human fear and recognition of death and the conflicting emotions of greed and survival on the one hand and for many, the need for “redemption” from “transgressions” about which most of us feel at least some regret when it doesn’t overrun the greed.

    I am quite active in a Christian church, not so much because I accept all the doctrine, dogma, rituals and symbols, but because religion, not just Christianity, has the potential for good in human lives and provides an outlet for doing so. It also hides evil agendas and provides a mask or cover for what’s really there as the KKK exemplifies. In the absence of any shred of proof, it is a mind game with potential for good (as I trust you use it, and thank you for that) and for evil by those who claim to have “the only way.” People like Smoothy are dangerous because they use their positions as “leaders” of the faith to plant fear among their followers, based on their own interpretations and delusions of unvetted scripture. It is when we cease to use our own common sense – the smell test – that some submit not to the God of creation as we imagine it, but to the manipulation of human misinterpretation, whether it is intentional for personal gain, or simply ignorance. The creator gave us minds to use for good or for ill and there are far too many people mindlessly following some of these apocalyptic charlatans.

    My criticism is not applied with a wide brush and I agree that most mainstream religions are more good than harmful, present example in this topic excepted. But we must use common sense, take off the blinders, come out from between the covers of our scriptures of choice and understand the basis and origins of the underlying “scriptures” that so many blindly accept at face value. I strongly recommend reading the books on biblical origins and archaeology by Karen Armstrong, a former Catholic nun, and Dr. Bart Ehrman who, from his ordination as an evangelical, became an agnostic as he studied the origins of biblical literature. That is scary ground for many who dare not give up what they have been taught as children.

    Not sure on that conclusion. Lots of us have read those authors and find them empty. Am thinking that the scary thing is to experience a holy other.

    We keep going back to the same topic which is that you don’t understand religion. We get that. Is there more or are you just going to keep restating your inability to understand?
