Religious Bloggers Say God (Not Them) ‘Staged’ Their Pregnancy And Miscarriage (VIDEOS)

For right-wing Christians, the benefit in believing in God is that they can forget all about personal responsibility. At least for this couple, God is the excuse for their actions and their belief in God is the reason they are ridiculed.

Sam and Nia Rader are Christian bloggers. On August 5, Sam snagged some of Nia’s urine from a toilet to test it for pregnancy so he could find out before she did. Yes, that is creepy and controlling. Then, they posted a video announcing the pregnancy, despite the fact that toilet water diluted pee won’t give an accurate result.

Here it is:

Buzzfeed spoke to an actual doctor who said the same thing about the toilet water:

“I would not recommend this method,” Wendy White, M.D., a perinatologist at Mayo Clinic, told BuzzFeed News. “It would lead to false negatives, and theoretically could lead to false positives as well.”

Dr. Fiona Clancy, the scientific and medical affairs director for Sure-Vue, the pregnancy test brand the couple used, echoed Dr. White’s sentiment.

“This is definitely not a method we would recommend,” she said. “Firstly, the urine will be diluted by the toilet water and in very early pregnancy this means the pregnancy hormone hCG may no longer be detectable by a home pregnancy test.”

Three days later, with oodles of tears, they announced that Nia had a miscarriage. “I felt my womb empty out,” cried Nia. Then, they claimed that she felt the fetus’ heartbeat, and well, it was all God pranking them or something.

Here’s that video:

Their followers weren’t having it.

So, of course, they follow-up with another video defending themselves, saying that people were “drinking the haterade,” but he did also say that the negative reactions have been a blessing. He quoted a Bible verse (John 15:19) that perfectly expressed Christian victimhood with the idea that if you are hated, it can’t be something you have done. It has to be because you are a Christian and you’re being persecuted.

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

That’s not the only one. He went on to quote another Bible verse that backed up his persecution complex (2 Timothy 3:12).

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

Here’s that video and his victimhood starts about the 8 minute mark:

If they did genuinely have a miscarriage, our hearts go out to them, but please, learn to take some personal responsibility.
