Weekend Weird: Guns for Jesus, Satan’s Toaster, Bigfoot Lawsuit, and More

Jesus is coming. Get your guns.

In the wake of yet another devastating school shooting, the Sanctuary Church and Rod of Iron Ministries in Pennsylvania is planning to hold a ceremony next week during which Reverend Sean Moon will bless guns owned by members of the congregation, WNEP/ABC Newswatch 16 reported.

“This will be a big thing for us,” a member of the church said. “It’s a new stage for us because it incorporates the rod of iron, as it is in Revelations. Revelations talks about the returning Christ ruling with the rod of iron.”

The rod of iron, he elaborates in the interview, is the AR-15.

The wrathful God of the Old Testament definitely would have loved the modern American attitude, that we all have the inalienable right to weapons designed for the singular purpose of mowing down large swaths of humanity as quickly as possible. But it baffles me why the good lord and savior Jesus Christ or any of his flock would need secular armaments.

Hauntings of the Underground Railroad
Before the Civil War, a network of secret routes and safe houses crisscrossed the Midwest to help African Americans travel north to escape slavery. Although many slaves were able to escape to the safety of Canada, others met untimely deaths on the treacherous journey-and some of these unfortunates still linger, unable to rest in peace.

Starman launched into space in Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster

Weekend Weird: Valentine’s Edition

This week’s roundup of weird news includes big rockets, deep space penetration, and a man with an extraterrestrial lover.

This week Elon Musk and SpaceX made history by launching a car into space. Starman, coolly positioned in the driver’s seat of Musk’s midnight cherry red Tesla Roadster, listening to David Bowie while careening through the harsh vacuum of space, is a testament to human ingenuity and our ability to overcome. We are collectively screaming into the void that we will not let trivial things like physics keep us from propelling our junk into space.

And yeah, it was awesome. We are all lucky to have witnessed a billionaire’s enormous rocket-powered phallus shoot it’s load deep into the cosmos.

While we ponder the deeper philosophical implications of this great galactic coitus, let’s review some of the other strange (and equally perverse) news that happened right here on terra firma:
