    How QAnon uses religion to lure unsuspecting Christians - CNN
    "How QAnon uses religion to lure unsuspecting Christians"

    As QAnon conspiracy theories draw new believers, scientists take aim at a misinformation pandemic
    "As QAnon Conspiracy Theories Draw New Believers, Scientists Take Aim at Misinformation Pandemic"

    "One thing they get is dopamine, the brain's pleasure chemical. Brain studies have shown that when people see information that confirms their belief in something that isn't true, they get a large dopamine hit. QAnon also provides a simple way to look at an otherwise baffling world and confers ready acceptance into a community. "Conspiracy theories make sense of the world," says Kavanagh. "And they provide that feeling of belonging to a group just by believing what the group believes.""

    I feel as though I have been isolated from the reality of this movement, belief system(?).

    I have no interest in being involved with QAnon. Any belief system requires an element of spirituality. As of now, I see no Godly/biblical basis for this movement other than using its' followers to fulfill prophecy.


    Thankfully, God is in charge!

    QAnon? Duped Trump loving bootlickers with brains the size of gnats that think they are somehow in the inner circle and privy to draining the swamp. After 3 1/2 years of waiting for the storm to strike and for Trump to take out the demon possessed Democrats running a child sex trafficking network they are still true believers.

    I seriously doubt CNN's reporting that John MacArthur pays any attention to them.

    They have a church in the calumet in Indiana but that area is a rust belt Chicago suburb. Omega Ministries in Hammond (Wolf Lake). Sad area. Former steel mills. Severe winter. Bad economy. No one goes to Chicago anymore because of the murders and riots.

    Much ado about nothing. Not a factor in anything significant.

    It appears that the attacks on Q have been successful. Q has not called for violence, just justice. Q is a way to rally people to the forces of good. Good vs evil. Sorry if y’all have a problem with that premise. I have no problem with it.

    If you ARE against it, that says more about you than it does me. If you doubt the depths of depravity that continue to occur, you are going to have to eat some crow, & ask forgiveness that you stood against exposing it. Why would you do that? No one is worshipping Q, they are seeking hope that good will prevail, & from what I’ve seen, they are for the most part, Christian folks.

    Now, my advice is find something else to kick around, there are plenty of choices. Of course, your other option is to tell me to go put on my tinfoil hat, which I will ignore. Cheers.

    OK. I could call anything a hoax. I’m not a rabid follower, but I consider all avenues of information, including Q, as is my perogative. This is just another effective method of causing division among folks like us. There is no need for it, but here we are playing their game. Brilliant.

    Met a guy at my gym who was into this stuff. Never heard of it before. Their theories did seem outlandish, akin to the Russia hoax, though not quite that silly.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Logically Ai Inc. in Sacramento, CA | Company Info & Reviews
    So this link is from a company who just filed with the California SOS on Sept.18, 2020, & is listed as a California Foreign Company.
    Attacks from the left on Q tell me they are worried. They’ve sent out all their minions, even Savannah G. in Trump’s townhall.

    Could be opportunists trying to capitalize on Q, that would not surprise me, in fact it would surprise me if they didn’t. When somebody I’ve never heard of starts directing the narrative, I get out the big grains of salt. I’m not worried, but somebody is.

    Back to the OP. I have been on forums frequented by Q followers, just as I have frequented this forum, whose members claim to be mostly Baptists. That is what drew me here. Guess which forum is more judgemental? Guess what that leads to? Closed minds. You can’t learn with a closed mind. Many interesting reads there today, like this for example:

    Greg Rubini (@GregRubini)

    Now let me assure you, I am not trying to hijack the thread.
