On the chance that AOS doesn’t get renewed or if it gets one last season, I do hope that ABC greenlights “Marvel’s Ghost Rider” to take AOS’ place as ABC’s main Marvel show.
1) His arc was basically a backdoor pilot for his show. Established his backstory and left the audience wanting more from this character. Robbie was one of those characters who you wanted to see explored more but not necessarily confined to a show where he’s not the lead (like how people wanted a Punisher spin-off after appearing in DD season 2).
2) Plus, a GR show could establish a Riderverse within the MCU, like how CW has the Arrowverse. Ghost Rider could easily lead to Blade, the Darkhold Redeemers / Kamar-Taj, and Man-Thing. There’s a LOT of supernatural Marvel that hasn’t been tapped yet and a Riderverse could be a fun way to do so.
3) There’s the added benefit of GR not being held to the movies because, aside from Doctor Strange, the Avengers and GOTG have nothing to do with the supernatural.
4) If GR gets greenlit to take AOS’s place, I can definitely see Chloe Bennet jumping over to GR as the main female lead. Henry Simmons could also come on the show since he briefly took over the GR spirit.
5) A big complaint that AOS got in season one was that there were no major Marvel superheroes appearing on the show. Sure, we got Deathlok and Lady Sif and later on, Skye was revealed to be Quake, but a lot of people wanted one of the top Marvel players on the show, like how CW features Green Arrow, Flash, and now Supergirl. Ghost Rider is not necessarily an A-list Marvel hero but he’s definitely well-known. I mean, he has two (albeit shitty) movies, obviously there’s fan demand for this character.
6) Ayyyeee, Hispanic/Latinx representation. Along with Gabe, I’m pretty sure most of the main cast will be Hispanic/Latinx. That alone would generate a lot of positive buzz. Plus, if Mack and Daisy appear on the show as series regulars, that’s just more POC representation.
7) QuakeRider can live.
Also, yes, Inhumans is there but I’m not sure if it’s going to be one of those shows that gets like 22-23 episodes per season. That’s definitely a wait-and-see situation.

As I always say, if you have to manipulate and traumatise children… to get your point across? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?!
How to become an angry little volcano: watch this… try not to practice your Darth Vader strangle-hold on the adults involved (especially the pro-life asshole).
Holy shit… you are talking about kids as ‘warriors’ who need to DIE for THEIR GOD.
If you are putting DUCT TAPE over kids (as young as 5/6)’s mouths to protest against abortion… something they do not really have a concept of other than your twisted ‘tiny fully-formed baby model gets murdered by heartless women who dared get pregnant’ spiel… that’s NOT OKAY?!
If you have kids in hysterical tears…
…if you have them CONVULSING ON THE FLOOR…
…if they are so emotionally distressed they have o idea how to cope with it and are physically ill…
…if you teach them they are nothing but blank tools for God to use… and tell them being indiviuduals/having your own thoughts is WRONG…
…if you have them apologising to your imaginary fucking friend, to the point they reach any of those stages…
THEN YOU ARE IN THE WRONG?!
It’s brainwashing? What the fuck is wrong with you?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
And the anti-Muslim spiel in the first 7 minutes… rude. Pretty sure they DON’T make 5 year olds do Ramadan, nor women who are menstruating or pregnant. Nor do ‘They’ (bc clearly all Muslim people are a block of identical clothes).
She throws down the idea of child soldiers (Islamic children learn to use guns and teach kids to strap on suicide bomb belts, apparently)… but then she starts endorsing the idea of Christian children being soldiers for God…
“I want to see them as radically laying down their lives for the Gospel, as they are in places like Pakistan… because we HAVE THE TRUTH!”
…you want to weaponise children. No matter what cause, that’s wrong…
“Gotta take back the land.”
“The world is hostile to us true Christians…”
…perhas because you’re just as fucking radical as ISIS at this point?!
‘Weaponise the children to die for God!’ she says, completely unironically as she condemns the ‘Islamic People/Muslims’ (they’re the same thing to her, apparently) for using children as soldiers.’
“Evolution is based on belief.”
…so… so is… your fucking religion?
“Global warming is a myth.”
HOMESCHOOL ALL YOUR HILLBILLY INBRED MOTHERFUCKERS SO THEY CAN NEVER LEARN ANYTHING ELSE…
This is why we still have racism, sexism and general human stupidity. Groups of radicals form communities, they teach their kids only Topic A, and that Topic A is the only thing that exists… anyone who believes Topics B through Z, are wrong (and going to hell). It stops their ability to LEARN, to GROW and change.
“If you look at Creationism, you learn it is the ONLY possible answer to all the questions!”
“Science doesn’t prove ANYTHING!” says the homeschooling mother, to her son. I am sorry the education system failed you so badly, madam… or did your parents not let you attend, either?
“Why would I send them to school, be away from them for 8 hours a day?” -so they can learn new things -so they gain independance -so someone can tell them rats-tails are so fugly -so that they get sum lurnin’ in their noggins and don’t turn out like YOU
“I can go into a playground full of kids who don’t know Jesus, and in moments I can have them seeing visions of God… I can lead them to Jesus…”
Um, a) how fucking dare you approach other people’s kids wthout permission? b) The metaphorical assumption all kids want to be taught about Jesus or ‘saved’. What if they had a religion already? Going to tell them they’re going to Hell over it? What if they decided they were atheist? c) ‘Having visions of God/Jesus’… kind of sounds like you drugged them. Stay the hell away from the kids.
The girl who keeps praying before she does ANYTHING… and keeps ‘conveying the messages of God to others’… that is not healthy.
“God just wants me to tell you…” (long rambling talk, to stranger lady who is humouring her bc what the fuck else do you do?)
The correct answer is a trip to the GP or psychologist
“I want to be a person who paints nails, so I could have someone there that I could then talk to about the word of the Lord…” So, captive audience? You know they could walk out and tell everyone you’re nuts, yeah?
[It is annoying to be trapped omewhere and have someone start rambling about how you’re a sinner, and need to accept Jesus… I usually tell them I’ll see them in Hell, wink, and leave.]
She actually rings a lot of alarm bells, from a psychosocial assessment perspective; something else is going on for this kid.
The other kid who is told not to dance for fun, because if it’s not for God, it’s sinful. And believes it.
The same one who has to have a pledge of allegiance on the bible before every meal… that’s not grace, it’s like four paragraphs long.
Her mother: “All children are on loan from God. And I said, Lord, you’ve given me this daughter, how am I supposed to train her? How am I supposed to take her to a place where she can learn these things? But the Lord told me what you have to train her in, is you have to train her in character…” …character does not involve dancing unless it’s for God?
We haven’t even GOTTEN to camp yet…
[As you can tell, I have a long list of reasons I hate that this was thing, and no matter how many times I watch it, I am still angry about it.]
Praying over pews (my really weird Gr 5 teacher used to pray over our individual desks every morning, it was really uncomfortable… esp when they -like he other teachers- reminded my non-Christian ass I was going to hell… detention for telling them I’d see them there, more than once).
“Let’s just walk out among the pews and stuff and just pray over the seats… in the name of Jesus we just speak over every person that’s going to be sitting in these chairs this week, and Lord we just ask them to be covered with the blood of Jesus! Open Hearts, Lord! Open Hearts! Father we pray over the electrical systems, we pray the electricity will not go out in this building in Jesus’s name… because of storms or any other reasons and I just pray for this equipment. I just pray over this powerpoint presentations, all of them, video projectors, and we say Devil we KNOW what you love to do in meetings like this, and we say you WILL NOT -in Jesus’s name- you WILL NOT prevent this message from going out! No microphone problems in Jesus’s name, in the name of Jesus we SPEAK that, (babbling in something I think is meant to be Hebrew but sort of sounds more like a vocal exercise for singers when she says it). Father we just ask you, in the name of Jesus that this will be a defining moment in their lives; Father I pray that Jesus will be glorified on this camp.”
-Weird Preacher Lady (who would probably never survive Ramadan, look at her… says I, a fat chick also).
[…not unlike the morning, begin-class, end-class, before lunch, after-lunch, and home-time prayers f my weird cult-like private school (bf I transferred the fuck outta there)… which was why I nearly missed the bus all the time.]
“So we’re talking this week, about how the Devil uses tactics to destroy our lives. The first tactic that he uses, is to tempt you with sin. See when you first start out as a kid -cause see, that’s when all this stuff starts- see when you start out as a kid, sin just doesn’t seem ike that big of a deal…”
Well no, because they’re fucking KIDS… and should be worrying about being children, growing up, learning things and finding who they are… not worrying about apologising to some invisible old bearded guy in the sky for their existence and every second since?
Using the idea of burning alive for eternity is not a good parenting strategy? Have you fucking HEARD of Super-Nanny? USe a fucking NAugty Stool?!?!?!?!
“It looks kinda cute in fact, warm and fuzzy…”
Well now you’re hurting your own cause, give me 40 of your SIN-ba the Lions Cubs…
“…but sin is designed to destroy you. And you feed this baby long enough, and he’s gonna grow, in your life… until you’ve got yourself a tiger by the tail. And you don’t know which end is up, and what used to seem very innocent, now controls your life… The Devil goes after the young… those who cannot fend for themselves, that’s why we’re trying to help you; we’re trying to warn you.
[My favourite line from all of this mess:]
And while I’m on the subject, let me say something about HARRY POTTER! Warlocks are ENEMIES OF GOD… and I don’t care what kind of HERO they Are, they’re an ENEMY OF GOD… and had it been in the Old Testament, HArry Potter would have been PUT TO DEATH!”
Well thank fucking Christ Jesus said to ignore the Old Testament, then… huh?
What fucking Witch or Wizard broke your heart to make you like this,you beetroot-cheeked, anti-magic galoot?
…on the upside, it means Lucifer clearly has quite the extensive Potter library down in the Pit, so we all have something to read when we get there…
(same sermon, continued on after awkward clapping) “YOU DON’T MAKE HEROES OUT OF WARLOCKS!”
[How about you try to fucking stop me?!]
“This is a generation that is going to stand for PURITY, and righteousness and holiness, and you’re gonna serve the Lord all the days of your life!”
…that… that sounds a lot like slavery, the way you’re pitching it, tbh.
“And we declare all those things over you! I believe this so much, that I have given my whole life to see to it, that you get there…”
CASUAL REMINDER SHE IS PREACHING TO A ROOM FULL OF CHILDREN AGED 5-15… THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TALK TO KIDS?
And now, the ‘Some kids here are liars, who dare to be different kinds of people when in church… and when at school with friends (where fanaticism is generally a leading reason for ostracism), so they are Christian liars!’ gambit.
“You’re a PHONY and a HYPOCRITE!”
…well I bet the Church tithes go towards your fucking kickass car, mansion and appetite you self-righteous bitch… you are trying to deliberately emotionally destroy a room full of kids to make them pliable to your agenda. WTF is your PROBLEM?
You do things you shouldn’t do, you talk dirty just like all the other kids talk dirty… And it’s time to clean up your act… come up here and get washed!”
Yes, she does indeed have a water bottle. There are kids panicking to get washed clean. There are kids in tears…
“Because we can’t have phonies in the armies of God…”
Hold up, why must you perpetually refer to these children as soldiers? It’s really disconcerting, how are the parents not seeing this shit as dangerous? …also, God is supposed to be a peaceful, loving dude who forgives… why does he need an army? Why children? What sins are you hiding she-of-the-pubic-coif?
There are kids chanting, in trances, in tears, having physical symptoms, having convulsions, falling to the floor, freaking out, so emotionally distressed… they CANNOT cope, swaying like they’re not in this reality…
THERE IS A FIVE YEAR OLD SO DISTRESSED SHE’S BEING COMFORTED BY HER COMPLETELY IMPASSIVE MOTHER…
“Father we wash them with the water of your word! We say Devil, no more! Say it boys and girls! Name it,repent! Name it! You know what you need to be forgiven for… name it, SAY IT OUT LOUD!”
…how… 1984 of you. What’s next? Rat-cages?
Oh, look, kids are being lead out one-by-one to admit what they did wrong, and then pray under scrutiny… what the fuck…
Finally, that bit ends.
It’s storming… hah, the original anti-storm prayer failed. Perhaps you should have left an offering for Ororo/Storm of the X-Men.
Kids having fun in the dorms in the dark, being kids…
In comes asshole man, telling them not to have ghost stories because “Ghost Stories don’t honour God!”
…ISN’T ONE THIRD OF THE TRINITy THE HOLY MOTHRFuKING GHOST?
She’s editing a powerpoint… two slides… one says SIN, th othr DEATH… the latter she’s trying to augment with a font that allows it to look as if DEATH i dripping with blood.
Hang on, back the fuck up friends… is not the entire point of your religion… that if you do right, Death is NOT to be feared? There’s an Afterlife with Heaven and the like? Why make children fear dying? Children die everyday around the world… and you, madam would make a fucking terrible terminal/hospice-styled social worker…
[‘Well I’m sorry Timmy… you’re going to hell when the cancer comes for you tonight. You just wouldn’t take my aggressive religious propoganda to heart what with all this false-optimism and ‘enjoying your time remaining’ nonsense you keep pulling instead of reading the Bible and this book on Creationism I keep leaving here after every visit…’ Okay but seriously there are religious assholes who volunteer at services/hospitals for the terminally ill, and try to bully the patients into converting (to ‘save their souls’) which in no way takes into account the patients needs or care… it’s self-righteous nonsense and if I hear any of you are pulling this stunt… you’d better start running now.]
PUNISHMENT FOR SIN IS DEATH
…and the punishment for a good, sinless life is ALSO death… what is your POINT here? She feels very technosavvy having mastered three slides… it’s kind of sad to look at.
“This generation, particularly is a sight-and-sound generation… and so it’s very difficult for them to sit down with a book and a tablet and pencil and try to learn the way we’ve learned. ”
Alright, so if we’re the can’t-sit-still-to-learn generation… all of us, in a giant, genderless lump… what’s your generation? The bigoted, can’t-work-out-my-email-without-help-from-previously-ragged-on-younger-generation-member’s-help generation?
I just… why do adults perpetually do this.
She’s holding a fucking Barbie and Ken ‘Adam and Eve’ set… this is her version of Engagement. Try a laser pointer and some pixie sticks, it’ll get them moving…
They learn VISUALLY, They learn by demonstration…” (shifts Ken!Adam and Barbie!Eve about to show them off).
Oh god, she’s using a fucking balloon to symbolise God breathing ‘the breath of life’ into Ken!Adam’s nostrils… this hurts… she’s so SERIOUS…
“I tell the kids, ‘If you want to become a better Christian and have your spirit-man be STRONG, there’s certain things you need to do.. if you pray everyday…’” (pauses to blow balloon up more, it is our spirit apparently) “ ‘your spirit man will get stronger. If you go to church and learn more about God…’” (more balloon blowing up), “ ‘your spirit is going to get stronger!’”
She now tarts to let the balloon deflate via the classy fart-iculation methodology. To emphasise what happens if you don’t read the bible, go to church or pray… which equal a weak-spirit-man…
For people who claim that transpeople don’t exist, she sure goes on about having spirit-men inside us… we’re all secretly dudes on the inside, huh? Et tu, hypocritus.
She has an arsenal of silly crap… I would misuse them all to be pro-sin…
STICKY-HANDS MEANS SWEAR WORDS AND DIRTY THINGS SEEN ON TV….
Okay, her views on how kids’ minds work are hella offensive; like they’re idiots that can only be taught by shitty analogies. I would fight her. Immediately.
During the morning grace, the man with the queerest voice I have ever heard (possibly on a pray-the-gay-away plan with the church) said the following to a room full of kids:
“And Lord Jesus we plead your blood over our sins and the sins of our nation. God end abortion, and send revival to America! Thank you Jesus, amen!”
…sir… sir I think you have some other things you may want to discover about yourself if you took a moment and put the religious propaganda aside… Also, WHO THE FUCK BRINGS ABORTION INTO MORNING GRACE OVER BREAKFAST IN A ROOM FULL OF KIDS WHO HAVE NO SEX ED OTHER THaN ‘you’ll find out on your wedding night’?!
Not only that, but it’ not the first prayer, either. “Let’s pray again!” he shouts over the room. Some of the kids are trying desperately to eat in-between the never-fuckin-ending graces and prayers… let them eat, you dickbag.
Ah, rat-tail boy is now preaching rising up with all your heart.
What if… I rose up and dealt with your rat-tail, son? What does the Lord think on that one?
Oh, it’s ‘fun-time’ now… but like, why the ominous threat of ‘being different people after tonight’? that sounds like… something very disturbing.
“How many of you want to be those who give up your lives for Jesus?” says the fat dude who probs wouldn’t give up his third burger to a starving homeless orphan.
They’re SMASHING CUPS WITH HAMMERS.
“we’re going to break the power of the government! They came to your schools and they took Jesus OUT of your schools… but what they couldn’t do is take Jesus out of your hearts!”
So your plan is to smash shit… because you are upset that school chose logic over fables? Um, okay, but anyone else who tried that sort of mindset, gets eithe th naughty stool or arrested. Great conflict-resolution ideas.
The ‘Holy Ghost Hammer’ smashing ceramic cups of sin… you couldn’t just play musical chairs?
Kids making proclamations before smashing cups.
ALL THE CUPS HAVE GOVERNMENT ShITTILY WRITTEN ON THEM, PICELESS.
The chanting and swaying is back… kids are crying… one little dude on the floor seems to be having convulsions… little kids are highly distressed…
They’re breaking Satan’s power over the government.
Oh, girls out the front are trying to use the Force. Someone keeps screaming JESUS, kids are crying… oh look, trance states…
“Unlike Mcdonalds, this isn’t about how fast you can go through the drive-through, you gotta cook a little!” o… what you’re saying is you’re hungry right now and making shitty analogies based on food fantasies happening in your head rn? It happens to the best of us… but REALLY?
GOD I A HAMBURGER, MY FRIENDS, you heard it here first.
I GIVE YOU A HAMBURGER. THE CUIL THEORY.
Fat dude: “GOD TOUChED YOU TONIGHT, I WANNA HEAR ABOUT IT!” Sir… sir, I’m going to need to see your Working With Children Permit… NOW.
Kids are back to wardancing. There’s camo paint on their faces.
How are parents okay with this?!
She’s screaming THIS MEANS WAR over and over, empowering small children to kill for God.
Rat-tail boy says, “Whenever I run into a non-Christian, there’s alwayssomething that doesn’t eem right about them…” No offence son, but you look like your parents were related and can’t seem to make a sentence without including God, Jesus or Christian in it… they’re probably more concerned about whether you’re going to flip out and shoot everyone in the name of the Lord…
Okay, so… why are Rat-tail boy one and Rat-tail boy 2 wandering around, alone, in caves (with camera crew, but they are not registered guardians) without proper camp counsellor supervision?
Oh god, I forgot this part…
SO THEY HAVE THIS CARDBOARD CUT-OUT OF GEORGE W BUSH… and they treat it like he’s alive and there. Encouraged to talk to him.
“Welcome President Bush, we’re glad you’re here” kids chorus.at the prompting of this wrinkly old lady who looks like she missed Jesus’s call only by shear fact that her hearing aids weren’t on at the time (and she can’t work her new-fangled voicemail).
They’re blessing Mr Bush now, and she’s encouraging them to run around touching him… because he is Jesus’s avatar in parliament.
Now she’s encouraging them to point at the cutout and remind him, “Mr President, it’s ONE NATION UNDER GOD!”
The Part I Hate Most.
The Pro-Life, I’ve-Never-Taken-Biology-In-My-Life asshole, speaker.
Who the FUCK invites an anti-abortion avocate to a CHILDREN’S CAMP?
WHO?! No one Normal?!
Most of these kids are young, and the rest have never received roper sexual education… they’re just fed ‘it’s a mummy/daddy thing’ and ‘all life is sacred/starts at conception’ crap… even if they have no concept what conception is. Most never get the heads up on periods or puberty, either, becauese it’s somehow shameful…
But this guy, I actually want to physically fight.
So here he is… he’s wearing a red t-shirt with a hand-written ‘LIFE’ on it. Note: he’s a dude. Easy for him to be o anti-abortion/pro-life… he just has to ejaculate and his part is over…
Everything he says, with actions:
“I’m really excited to be here tonight, I usually talk to big people, but tonight I gedda talk to probably the most important generation in American History. Whoa! And I’m not just joking, where’s the young man? The young man with the long-hair?” (looking for Rat-tail boy in audience) “Come here son. Stand right with me, what’s your name?” [Rat-tail boy: Levi] “Levi? Wow that’s a great name, Levi… you like Levi’s name?” [Audience agrees]
“Here’s the deal, before you were born… God knew you. Extraordinary, he said this, ‘he said he formed you in your mother’s womb’…”
Spoiler Alert: Most of the kids don’t know what a womb IS, asshole. No proper sex ed other than abstinence-only.
“You’re not just a piece of protoplasm…”
[Apparently he watched ghostbusters instead of taking biology?]
“…whatever that is…”
[Cute, but we know you watched Ghostbusters, motherfucker, too late to back out now.]
“…not just a piece of tissue in your mother’s womb. You were created intimately, by God…”
[So uh, apparently the whole sex thing is a shame and reproduction as we know it is a lie… gonna do it anyway, but hey, God’s making all the babies from here-on-out]
(Keeps making creepy faces at audience, supposed to be clownish to engage the children… comes off ‘I will take you behind the shed-ish’. Not a joke, creepy)
“Isn’t that incredible?”
[Yeah, actually, incredible, un-credible… impossible given how the human body actually works, your words…]
“God wrote a book about your life, and he wrote… ‘Levi, Levi would be a god-seeker from an early age and he would become a voice that touched America. And he would not sell-out, in his teenaged years, he would go for God all those days and he would be a man of prayer and in his twenties he’d begin to shake things real strong for God within the nation. God’s dream -the novel of Levi’s life!- signed, God.’ “
[I don’t know where to start… planning out the kid’s life… telling him not to ell out when the speaker and preachers are all evangelists with fancy clothes/cars/houses and their followers are poor (wonder how that happened), the fact this reads like a letter I once got from an unmedicated, delusional, god-fearing friend before she ended up re-admitted for her own safety…]
“What do you think of that? Pretty cool, huh? You’re pretty cool! Now listen to me you guys, since 1973 up to 50 million babies never had a chance to fulfil the dreams God had for them before they had a chance to live their lives. That sad, isn’t it…?”
[So… just abortions… or do we count the children dying all oer the world everyday? What about infants who are carried to term and killed at birth by gvernmental iofficials in China and similar places? What about the mothers in Africa and India who are foribly sterilised after a certain number of children and left to die of infection? What about the baby girls of China, of India, of Africa, of many impoverished or war-ravaged countries where their worth is not seen as great as that of a male child, who are killed at birth or abandoned? The mass female infanticide that has thrown off the population figures, because they cannot be fed, or are seen as a burden… and the girls who ARE rescued and placed in orphanages face, dim, awful lives in poor coditions… those ones are counted, yes?
Oh, wait, no… you’re talking about the handful of women/transmen/agender persons and young teenaged uterus-havers who have had an abortion for any reason whatsoever. Well fuck you, sir… you will never know the complex situation of being pregnant when you do not want to be, and those people DID. Some of them maybe even wanted to be pregnant but had to have medical abortions for their own safety/health… pregnancy is incredibly dangerous.
AND, in America, it’s super-expensive.
‘Give it up for adoption’ doesn’t count… unless you have a family lined up and waiting, who will pay the medical fees… it’s not feasible for some people? And what if baby isn’t the perfect little bundle of joy? Adopters will find some other pregnant teen with a healthy/perfect baby, and leave you with a child whose needs couldn’t have been met even if they were born as average as any inant.
Those teen mums that your kind always bitch about anyway, demanding they stop being sluts or get jobs… where you would once have talked them into having the infant over abortion… now baby is here, you couldn’t give a damn about it! The theoretical child, the cluster of cells in a uterus you do not possess or have ownership of, is more important to pro-lifers than the resulting child. It’s so paradoxical it boggles the mind. Not to mention, abusers can often use pregnancy to trap a female/uterus-having partner into remaining in the relationship; a biological tether, as it were. Or maybe they have six kids already, and he won’t gt a vasectomy… but (as a controlling arse) won’t let her have a hysterectomy as it’s against god’s law… but she’s over having kids. Maybe it was rape or incest or something horribly traumatic. Maybe it’s medical. Financial. Or maybe they just don’t want to be pregnant.
And, it’s the damndest thing but… that’s their fucking right as sentient human beings with bodily autonomy. Babies are medically, parasitical creatures… they form inside the host and steal nutrients; like any parasite; this can cause detriment to the host, which occasionally results in necessary termination. There are a lot of factors to consider… or not, because if you don’t have a uterus, you don’t really have a right to say anything about it. It’s that simple????]
THE ChILDREN ARE cONFUSED AND UPSET
“…you know a third of your friends could be here tonight, but they didn’t make it…”
[Um, alright… where to start? 1 in 20 fertilised eggs form correctly/start cell division in a manner that might form into an embryo. The majority(19/20) end up flushed out in a period, and miscarriages happen all the time -which a lot of Pro-Lifers like to use as evidence that a mother was sinful or undeserving, the vultures. Two, how the fuck are they friends if they are hypothetical? They could be the next Hitler/Donald Trump, that was thankfully remove as a cluster of microscopic cells? How dare you pull this on kids?]
OUT COME THE BIOLOGICALLY INACCURATE EMBRYOS... NEWSFLASH, MOTHERFUCKER, we don’t start out as microscopic fully-formed babies that enlarge over 9 months and the fact you are knowingly perpetuating this bullshit is just sad.
“A person’s a person, no matter how small…”
Look at this bullshit:
“God has a dream for them, like he has a dream for you. You ee that? It’s kind of awesome! Look at that! Seven weeks old!”
Fully-formed baby at 7 weeks:
“Tonight, I believe, something is gonna start tonight that is gonna change America. Seriously, kids I believe that you are the beginnings of a movement that can raise up in moral outcry and overthrow abortion in America. Would you like to be a part of that kind of company?”
Kids delightedly cheering. All attempts to teach them biology in future will fail. [I wonder how super-religious pro-life couples cope during their first sonograms… ‘Um, where’s the baby?’ ‘Ma’am, that is your baby, it’s only 8 weeks, though.’ ‘No, it’s supposed to be a baby…?’ demands the father. ‘What is this thing?!’ Sonographer stares at ceiling bc they are sick of re-educating pro-lifers… gets out set of biologically accurate fetus moulds. ‘Okay, so when conception starts…’]
NOW hE PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS… This is the part I disagree with most… to get them to show their dedication to not having abortions/allowing others to have abortions… he, creepy pro-life dude, pulls out RED DUCT TAPE.
What does he do with it? Scrawls ‘LIFE’ on a piece with a permanent marker, and then starts slapping them over the mouths of children.
HOW IS THAT OKAY?!
[children and pedo pro-life man:] “JESUS I PLEAD YOUR BLOOD OVER MY SINS, AND THE SINS OF MY NATION, GOD END ABORTION! AND SEND REVIVAL TO AMERICA!”
They repeat it louder.
And the girl (pictured above, weird needs-a-psych eval girl) starts shouting they need Blood, Blood, God demands Blood….
After a lot of chanting about Abortion is sin… the fat preacher lady returns:
“You made a covenant with God, tonight, that you’re gonna ray to end abortion in America. Don’t take that lightly, don’t be a promise-breaker, on’t be a promise-breaker… be a history-maker.”
Wow, fuck, they’re all kids and you lay THAT on them!
Magically fully-formed from conception fetus + pro-life/anti-abortion band:
These kids are so brainwashed it’ll take years to iron out the kinks.
Oh, and I was right, JUST AMERICA.
Screw the people in the other countries, it only matters if uterus-havers in america (people with their own minds, rights and sentience) dare to choose not to be pregnant or cease being pregnant for whatever reason…
How dare you (a bonafide human being with needs and a future) offend a bearded dude in the sky who may, or may not even exist… by choosing to exercise your right to bodily autonomy?!
And then they go on to watch an evangelist in a mega-church (who clearly is far richer than his poor congregation… hmmm, wonder where he got all that money?), he talks to rat-tail boy. Rat-tail boy and some others LEAVE The ChURCH CAMP with Pro-Life dude (and seriously where are the halth and safety people on this, he could just take them anywhere? He can just check out kids like library books for any purpose? Are the parents aware?) to go protest abortion in the snow, highly inefectively.
Then cut back to preacher-lady talking about the success that the camp was, proud of herself, etc.
A memo that the camp was investigated and shut down for child-related abuse/issues after this was shot. And that fat preacher lady clearly continued to do youth-based preaching after anyway.
