Welcome to the 8/2 edition of Unfollower’s Digest!
Thank you so much for subscribing. I hope your week was good. I thought that Trump was going to shut down TikTok. At the time of writing this, it hasn’t happened yet! We shall see.
Before I get into what I watched/read this week, I just want to let you know that I’ve started a Facebook group. I’m hoping that we can share some stories, memes, and good conversations.

Atheists Have Killed More People Than Christians
Whether you’re an atheist or not, you’ve probably heard debates between atheists and Christians. Oftentimes, the debate will go into the subject of morals and where they come from. The atheist might bring up how many wars have been fought over religion and how many people have been killed in the name of numerous gods, including the god of the Bible.
Sometimes, a Christian will retort that atheists have killed more people than Christians. Prophet of Zod has a great video on the subject here: https://youtu.be/6JfTm29242A
This is a screengrab from the video where he talks about how Christians justify things. You can find that discussion starting around the 8:30 mark.
I’ve made an infographic before of what I believe to be some of the shittiest Bible verses. I stumbled across a website that lists 101 of the craziest things in the Bible. Maybe you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Surely you’ve heard this by now, but if you haven’t, then buckle up. Trump retweeted a video from a Houston doctor, Stella Immanuel, who said that face masks aren’t necessary. That same doctor has made some pretty crazy claims. Here’s a snippet from an article on The Daily Beast:
In sermons posted on YouTube and articles on her website, Immanuel claims that medical issues like endometriosis, cysts, infertility, and impotence are caused by sex with “spirit husbands” and “spirit wives”—a phenomenon Immanuel describes essentially as witches and demons having sex with people in a dreamworld.
Here’s a tweet from Immanuel, herself:
Is this really the kind of person whose opinions should be retweeted by the President of the United States???

Some of this shit can get pretty heavy, so here’s something much lighter. Sacha Baron Cohen from Borat fame crashed a right wing event, and it was fucking hilarious.
It doesn’t matter where you stand politically, this shit was gold. Luckily, he had an escape plan because these people were NOT pleased.
I Kissed Dating Goodbye
If you’ve been in the Christian world for any considerable period of time, you’re probably familiar with Joshua Harris’s book I Kissed Dating Goodbye. Personally, I never read the book, but my ex-wife’s stepdad wanted us to read it instead of getting married. We didn’t follow his advice.
Anyways, Joshua did a Ted Talk about how his book was wrong and damaging, and you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/D2kV4ngi7J4
I hope you have a great week. As always, thank you so much for reading!
