An atheist ‘convert’
This is Mark Hunter. Mark Hunter had, let’s not beat about the bush here, a shit life. He was suffering from mental illness, and looking for someone to blame. Apparently he blamed the Christian God for this and decided that he was an atheist. In a recent ‘article’ on risible Christian hate spewer Miss Raissa’s blog, he said the following
I was so completely convinced of my “beliefs” as an atheist which were based upon (and confirmed by) a life of misery, pain and suffering.
Often atheists are accused of being believers who are angry at some god or other, mostly this isn’t the case, you cannot be angry at something you don’t believe exists. In this case though it seems to be the case that Mark was angry at some higher power.
I’m sure Mark sincerely felt himself to be atheist, and that makes him a true atheist, but I’m also sure that Mark now feels himself to be a true christian.
I’ve had a quick read of Mark’s blog, and I don’t know what to make of him. Certainly he comes across as a hugely damaged individual who has latched onto something that (finally) makes him happy. He seems to have gone for a pretty hardcore version of faith though, talking positively about Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic ‘Passion of the Christ’…I do wonder about people who rate that vile movie.
One comment made me do a double take though –
I’ll be flying off to the Philippines March 2nd to be with my wonderful Girlfriend once again – the woman who single-handedly started me on the path to Jesus. I get to spend 10 wonderful days in her company. I cant wait for the day that we are married!
I’m going to give Mark the benefit of the doubt here and assume that his bride to be was someone he met in the UK, who is now doing some charity work overseas….but I can’t shake the nagging feeling that, whilst Mark sees a wonderful Christian woman who wants to be with him, she sees a way to move to the UK. As I say, it’s just a little nagging feeling, and I kind of hope I’m wrong there. EDIT Mark describes his partner as a ‘very successful business woman’, so I’m thinking that the initial benefit of the doubt is correct.
One thing I am sure about is that Mark is writing a book. What is it with faith heads and their need to write books? Joe Cienkowski has been shitting out pamphlets that put the ‘POO’ in ‘poorly written vomit’ for a while now, @Starchasr claims to have been working on something that will debunk the Theory of Evolution (spoiler: it wont) and now Mark thinks people will be interested in his ‘journey’.
Will he be giving his book away for free? Or will he sell it….how he decides to go will speak volumes about whether he’s wanting to spread the Good Word or turn a quick buck.
I’m bemused to discover Mark has already blocked me on Twitter….I guess it was a pre-emptive blocking!
Mark has now blocked me from commenting on his blog, and deleted all my comments. I had no idea his faith was so weak.
