In this weeks episode we’ll friend baphomet on god-book after we met at an atheist school assembly.
Welcome to another blasphemous episode of Waiting for Wrath;
where we rip apart the headlines;
where making a point is beside the point;
where we ridicule the the stupid in our world, so it doesn’t drive us insane.
We’re not experts and we make no apologies for our opinions — so — let’s have a discussion, revel in the digression and, some god forbid, have a laugh or two.
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis —
because, while Pluto hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
Shea’s Life Lesson: If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of those ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one…
Jenn’s Actual Lesson: Did you know Jesus makes appearances in the Qur’an? More specifically, for example, he can talk as an infant and turns a clay bird into a real one.
Let’s have a beer!

So I decided to become an investigative journalist for this weeks story, and the first thing i want to tell you is that I didn’t use Rawstory, Patheos, or any of our other regular news outlets, so suck it! I actually did some work!
To start I had to see this site and the only way you can view profiles and see posts was to join Facegloria… Also this site is in Portuguese so i feel like I should get some sort of badge for going above and beyond.

After making a profile and choosing a username (Waiting 4Wrath) I was brought to a rather boring white page prompting me to add a profile picture and a background, naturally i used our logo and a background of our holy sacrament, a nice picture of beer. After this i was done… there really wasn’t much else to do, i could see new users and add them as “friends” so i thought what the hell lets get some new listeners, and i know the best place to look is “a Christian communication tool with many integrated media, created to facilitate communication between people who seek to preserve the principles of family, morality and respect among users who share the same faith, ideas, and other activities.”
What could go wrong?
Immediately, and by that i had to log back in to populate the page, i was greeted by a page of very facebook like updates and messages, i scroll through a few and i find a new friend Andy, i’m not going to use last name incase they actually used a real name. Andy looks a bit like a serial killer but who am i to judge, now this is where it gets interesting his background picture is an inverted cross and pentagram… shit just got real! I instantly tried to look at his profile, but whether it is my kindergarten grasp of Portuguese or Faceglorias horrible UI i couldn’t manage more that frustrating myself. I kept scrolling down my holy newsfeed hoping to potentially find some more gems and once again my good friend Andy lights up my life, this time with a post i could see, a lovely picture of a half a dozen or so inverted crosses surrounding a lovely goat head and above the words IN NOMINE DEI NOSTRI LUCIFERI EXCELSI, all in caps mind you, now there are some words i recognize, In the name of our Lord High Lucifer.
I am just overwhelmed with emotions right now, I couldn’t help myself and i looked for the like button, even with my base knowledge of this language i could identify a heart shape under the post, but what does Amem mean? that didn’t look like any i have ever seen, maybe that’s because it was Amen! as in Amen brother, preach it to the choir… needless to say he didn’t get an amen from me last night but i did post the word like, because fuck you for making me use a holy word.
I continue on my investigation to see if there is anything else interesting out here, and i find a hot bed of satan worship and Portuguese trolls, this could actually be where Waiting4Wrath belongs. I find the fruits of my labors fulfilling and rewarding, with the more friends i add posts roll in and along with the many religious quotes and iconography there runs a vein of rebellion and trolling, i’m most curious to see how this turns out.
I will keep you all posted as my investigation continues because i know you are all waiting with baited breath to hear more of my escapades with Facegloria.
