QAnon and Its Victims

Courtney Heard - QAnon Victims

Today’s guest is my friend in real life, Courtney Heard. We met when I was preparing for the first Conference on Religious Trauma, and she offered me her marketing expertise. As two atheists, we clicked immediately. Through the years, we have co-hosted a podcast together (Godless Moms Podcast), and now, with her husband John, Courtney has launched a new podcast that is extremely timely: The Q-Dropped Podcast.

Survivors of Religious Trauma Syndrome will recognize the angst her guests share around how the Q conspiracy has alienated them from loved ones swept up in the cult.

A few things that came to mind:

1. Our president is a local, dumber version of Trump. Upon learning that some Covid vaccines used RNA, he declared publicly that they'd make people turn into crocodiles.

2. I was brought up in a religious family. I eventually deconverted, but my brain is still drenched with religion. If I ever get senile, it's possible it'll take control of me again.

3. Rev. John Furniss was an Irish priest who did his best to scare children with visions of Hell. The best of Furniss' diatribes are collected in an 1880 anthology titled "Tracts for Spiritual Reading Designed for First Communions, Retreats, Missions, & etc." (P.J. Kenedy, Excelsior Catholic Publishing House).

Wow! Such a gross, fear-based attempt at indoctrination. Very disturbing.
