The marketing of sin.

    Big Pharma has been accused at times of "marketing madness," and that's a whole other topic, but isn't Big Religion guilty of marketing sin, after all there's no money in "normal."

    There's no guilt induced donations to be had in OK-ness.

    If we were taught that consenting adult sex is normal, enjoying your life, celebrating your milestones and achievements are all normal. Making mistakes and occasionally swearing like a sailor - yep all normal. Relationship break-ups, divorces, businesses failing, losing your job, - normal, normal and more normal. Feeling, at times, sad, angry, jealous, lonely, again all normal. Accidents, natural disasters -yeah that's right shit happens.

    Would we have had any need for WT approved attonement? I think not!

    What would happen to institutions like the WT who feed off the concept of sin?

    Maybe that's how to wake up ones that are still drinking the koolaid, to gently remind them that they are normal.


    Snake oil, for an imaginary illness...

    Sin:  Anything that might interfere with your being fully enslaved and joke-hova enslaving the whole world.  This includes most sex acts (aside the standard procedure within marriage), being angry, wanting material things for yourself, or trying to protect yourself from the leaders' attempts to enslave you and your race.  The Jews, Christians, and Muslims all push rules to this effect, and all three are guilty.

    Sin is blamed for everything, even carnivores, so the Catholic Church sold indulgences, even for future sins, wt accepts service time sheets, estates, contributions for cancelling of past sins and protection in an imaginary future sin payment, Armageddon.

    Protection racket.

    Yeah. There is big profit in Sin. It costs nothing to make, and every cent they squeeze from it is pure profit. The raw material is already there - religion just has to milk it.

    And then religion takes Hope, packages that up as a commodity, and sells Hope as the cure.
