Looking at this thread gives me chills. These have to be trolls right? They can't be serious? No

The site is a satire. It's amazing how hard it is to tell from the real thing.Thumbsup

Love that site! I know the editors are happy you couldn't tell it was a spoof.

Landover, YEAH!

Satire or not... I've seen it happen. I was brought up a Jehovah's Witness, and know of at least two people disowned for either expressing doubts or "speaking ill of the congregation".

Reject God, convert or do something they don't like... don't expect to see your friends and family again. That's how they keep people in...

There is at least a thousand websites just like that one that are totally serious. There is really no need for a satire one.

RE: Disown Atheist Children...They Can't be Serious?
The sad things is that even though that's satire, it's very true. I have a friend who is so insanely Catholic (he's considering becoming a priest) who said that if he did get married and have children and his children became atheists, he probably wouldn't be able to consider them his children any more. Little did he know he was saying this in front of an atheist. Most of my friends have been in agreement though. They say only thing worse than their kids getting into drugs or getting pregnant in high school would be them turning atheist. It saddens me that people actually think like this. . .

That there are any requires the satire.
