Rapture-Palooza (2013)

Claire: 4.6/5 stars, 8.8/10.
Carolyn: 4.4/5 stars, 8.4/10. “Underrated. Funny. Original. Dark yet humorous.”
Native ratings: 2.8/5 stars Netflix, 5.1/10 IMDB.

I found this movie to be very original. It had dark, dark, messed up black humor, but also had a lot of standard humor as well.  Events in the movie were disturbing and funny at the same time. Things got cartoonishly ridiculous, which is always points-positive for a movie.

Anna Kendrick came off as being much younger here than in the Twilight movies. Her acting was interesting, as her character often had to say things her character didn’t believe, so there was a slight air of sarcasm to all of it.

The cast in general was interesting. People from many other things we’ve watched, such as The Office, Childrens Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV::, Twilight.

Daryl from The Office as the Anti-Christ? That’s one of the more brilliant casting choices here, and the source of a lot of the movie’s humor.

This garnered a very low rating from the public — probably due to all the Christians who automatically downvote anything that makes humor out of religion, plus the fact that comedies always seem to score lower than non-comedies of equal value.  Humor never works for as many people as drama, so I’ve learned not to ignore comedies with low IMDB ratings…and was rewarded by not veto’ing this as a movie to watch. Very glad I did watch it afterall…

RELIGION: Catholic school fires teacher because she’s a domestic violence victim

Victim-blaming is one of the worst things about humanity.

Religion is pretty high up there, too.

Put the two together? And you end up punishing victims who dare assert their rights and speak up.

It seems the world, in general, wants you to just quietly skulk away if you are a victim.

RELIGION: USPS Discriminates Against ‘Atheist’ Merchandise

America is full of religious assholes who want to violate the rights of people who don’t worship the same imaginary sky fairy as them

10 times more likely to lose a package that says atheist on it! And only in America, not in Germany.

The assholes are here. Everywhere.

This one is faced squarely on Christians, as they compose the majority of religious people here.

RELIGION: Cardinal Roger Mahony: I Forgive Those Who Are Angry at Me for Covering Up Child Rape

What a piece of shit. This guy is worse than the worst child molester you can imagine.

The commenters are right: The Catholic Church needs to be charged under RICO organized crime laws.

If you tithe, you’re paying for rape. Period.

RELIGION: Loyalty to your church is more important than not raping children – Not just in Catholicism, but Judaism too

But anyway, here’s a story of a Jewish person who turned in the person raping his child, and was shunned by his community, harassed, and kicked out of his residence.

Hasidic Jews, that is. These are the hardcore orthodox types. People who take their supernatural beliefs way too seriously, and then inflict them on other people.

Religion has got to be one of the top enemies for children.

(Islam is even worse in that they don’t need to worry about covering up chid rape quite as much as the other religions, because Mohamad set the awesome example of marrying a six year old while he was in his 50s, and Sharia says you execute the rape victim, not the rapist, so what’s left to cover up?)

In general, fuck religious people. Even the ones that do no wrong help prop up communities like this by passing on supernatural beliefs that have nothing to do with the modern-day world. If you don’t like my attitude, here is a cup of I don’t give a fuck that you can drink.

This is basically looking like the same bullshit the pope and various bishops have pulled repeatedly.

RELIGION: Mass genocide of Mohawk children by UK Queen and Vatican uncovered in Canada

Seems like a month can’t go by without hearing about some new evil foisted on the world by Cathlocism, in the name of their fictitious sky fairy.

Can we say — Christian-sponsored mass-murder of Native American children?

Not only did it happen in America by Papal Decree from the Catholic Pope centuries ago, but it happened in Canada, set up  by the Anglican Church. 

Now add up the 100000+ babies stolen in Spain by Catholicism — and the sexual abuse of so many people that phone lines set up in support are overrun by calls…

…Yeah, religion is bullshit. A giant fairy in the sky threatening to burn people if they do wrong is not a proper motivator for a functional society. 

The Queen of England picking 10 children who were never seen again? Then a guy who has testimony against her mysteriously gets murdered? A rack? They were using an actual rack for torture, possibly as late as 1970? UK denied entry to people who were going to testify in the Tribunal, so they had to move it to another country?

They must really have something to hide.

RELIGION: Vatican spokesman TAKES BACK 10-year-old Apology to Sexual Abuse Victims of Catholic Priests

If you donate to the catholic church, you are supporting rapists. End of story. 

You gotta love that after 10 years of this, the guy takes back his apology, says “I believe the sex abuse thing was incredibly good”, and repeated a bunch of other falsehoods. This is one of the highest-ranking members in America. Fuck religion, and fuck rape.

“How about, ON WHAT PLANET IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO TAKE BACK YOUR APOLOGY FOR RAPING CHILDREN?”
