SHOW NOTES: Episode 7: The Fear Factor - How They Collect You & How They Keep You
Segment #1: Christians Behaving Badly
Prophets Talking Loud? Really? Behold the evolution of Jim Bakker: Doomsday Prep Guru and marketer of his own line of survival products. We can't make this stuff up...
Segment #2: The Fear Factor
Spider and Shelle tell stories and give examples of how evangelical conversion tactics use fear to influence various behaviors. First and foremost, to make the decision to get "saved" but also to keep people plugged in and compliant. From doomsday movie series to overwrought in-your-face dramas about Heaven and Hell, we show you what they do, tell you why they do it, and give you the tools you need to deflect their advances and also move past the hurt inflicted if you have been (or are right now) in an environment that teaches that it is somehow normal to be deathly afraid of a god who loves you.
