Roosh V takes the “God Pill,” embracing Jesus after getting super high on shrooms. No, really

Yes, this is a real photo of Roosh dressed as Jesus that I made into a Blingee. It’s from like ten years ago though.

By David Futrelle

A couple of weeks back, you may recall, our old friend Roosh V complained, in a tweet, that Satan was giving him boners by making women in his vicinity all sexy and stuff. At the time I wondered if the aging libertine, who now spends much of his time fulminating like a fundamentalist preacher, had truly found God, or if he had just decided to namedrop the Biblical villain for, well, the hell of it. I was skeptical.

But maybe my cynicism was unwarranted? The world’s skeeziest alleged pickup artist has now come out as a brand-new Christian. For real.

In a post on the Roosh V forum, he offered some more details on his conversion.

If you’ve been following my work for a while, you’ll notice I’ve been warning up to faith in God over the years, especially the past year. This is due to witnessing the growth of evil in society, my personal experiences with unbridled hedonism, and my sister’s death.

And no, I wasn’t kidding about the shrooms:

This reached a climax when I received a message while on mushrooms which cemented that faith further, an experience which I will share in the future after I’m done processing it. Sure of my path, I decided to publicly “come out”.

Far freakin’ out, Praise the Lord.

While the shrooms might have triggered his “come to Jesus” moment, Roosh apparently had been heading that direction for some time, fed up with the nihilism of “the black pill” — by which he seems to mean his depression as an aging pickup artist who had gotten as tired of “the game” as most of the very young women he tried to pick up had, I suspect, gotten of him.

I believe that remaining black pilled is unsustainable because of the high degree of despair, meaninglessness, and hopelessless it requires, which goes beyond the human ability to handle. …

The God pill does feel like the final destination, where life becomes about asking Him for help and performing His will in a way that embraces good. My mind is currently buzzing with this new perspective, and I wouldn’t be surprised if much of my new work will be framed around it.

So this changes everything, right? Roosh will stop teaching men how to “bang” women even if they physically push you away and literally tell you “no” thirty times? He’ll renounce the pleasures of the flesh and take up the life of the mind, possibly becoming the next Thomas Merton or Teilhard de Chardin?

Well, not so fast. I mean, first of all, Roosh is an idiot, and his theological speculations are likely to be a mixture of the blindingly obvious and the incredibly dumb.

Second, it turns out Roosh’s vision of Orthodox Christianity is a tad unorthodox. His recent “critiques” of hedonism only seem to apply to women, for one thing. Roosh continues to sell the pickup manuals that many see (not without reason) as date rape how-to guides. And he’s still offering “game” advice on his blog.

No, his newfound faith seems to mainly be providing him with more excuses to rail against the alleged evils of the very same “slutty” women he teaches guys how to “bang.”

Here’s his Satan tweet, as mentioned above:

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1105837032503418880

But there are so many more:

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1108084246407770112

And apparently, in Roosh’s eyes, fat women are also an affront to God.

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1105880676325384192

Roosh continues to rail against LGBT people and the “globohomo agenda.”

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1110941629760880640

And he seems to be turning into quite the anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist.

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1110675761671880704

Indeed, he’s become such a devoted Jew-hater that he’s managed to get one of his Tweets banned in France for promoting the world’s most anti-Semitic ASMR video. Which, yes, is a thing.

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1109867530640859142
https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1110907054858952705

Unlike most conservative Christians, Roosh is a big fan of Islam, or at least of those varieties of Islam that treat women and LGBT people as badly as he would like to see them treated.

https://twitter.com/rooshv/status/1106945715677343744

So maybe I was right to be cynical about Roosh’s newfound interest in religion. The new “Christian” Roosh looks an awful lot like the old awful Roosh, except that now he sometimes makes references to Satan when he spews his hate.

Anyone think Douche V looks like Chad Kroeger in the top picture?

Great, there goes the “Do you have a moment to hear the Good News about Jesus?” strategy for getting rid of sex pests.

Hang on, I thought Doosh was claiming to be a Muslim?

Also, for those confused about Iranians and Armenians, there are such things as Iranian and Armenian Christians. But, like Egyptian Christians, many have migrated. So, I mean, it’s entirely possible he’s at least baptised. He’s so cynical he’s probably aiming for the conservative Christian market now he’s a has-been on the PUA circuit.

Oh, my goodness! I never thought I’d see the day when Roosh was actually right about something. He says:

“remaining black pilled is unsustainable because of the high degree of despair, meaninglessness, and hopelessless it requires, which goes beyond the human ability to handle.”

Blackpill actually requires despair, meaninglessness and hopelessness. I suppose this is why the incel groups actively pile on and push out any member who actually tries to post something positive, or to get help, by means of therapy or coping.

Of course, he stopped there. He could have gone on to explain how that is just so blatantly wrong, and should be avoided at all costs, rather than spread like gospel, and that the Blackpillers will not be able to sustain it, and will find their own end in it, either by suicide or by imploding in violence, which is basically a suicide that takes others with them. He didn’t, so, he’s still an imbecile.

But at least he got one whole sentence right, y’all! Wow!

Cat Mara: I believe the Nestorians, or the ‘Assyrian Church of the East’, as they call themselves, split off after the Council of Ephasus (the one immediately after Nicea 1). The Cathlodox call them ‘Nestorian’ after the theologian who lost that council-he argued that Christ had a dual nature or some-such-I’m not really clear how that’s different from the Orthodox position, or why in the name of Kate anyone would get excited about it.

And I’m Christian myself.

I’m becoming more and more convinced that the Christian Church started going downhill with Nicea 1.

So, after having written “Bang”, he is going to write “Pop(e)” ? That is still sounding like a loud fart from him, though.

I’m honestly surprised he didn’t go with the standard huckster route and start his own religion.

Maybe that’s where this is going.

With all this discussion of early church history…

Has anybody else ever played the old card game ‘Credo’? It’s a card game from 1993 where you’re basically all playing church leaders during the Council(s) of Nicea, and you’re all trying to get your version of the Creed accepted as the true Nicene Creed and thus become the official church of the Roman Empire. Comes with a lot of cards with various variant versions of the clauses, including Gnostic and Dualist versions (the latter giving Satan co-billing with God), each of which specifies which branch of thought the line came from.

I got my mother, who used to be the church secretary of the local Anglican church, playing it. She actually enjoyed it; I think being church secretary had showed her just how much pointless politics actually went on behind the scenes. (Well, pointless if you’re not one of the church elders trying to cement or elevate your position.) It’s very much a ‘beer and pretzels’ game, fairly quick to pick up and play.

That sounds absolutely amazing, and the next time I’m in the vicinity of card-game playing types, I’m going to have to track it down.

@Rabid Rabbit:
It is, unfortunately, not so easy to find anymore, given it was from 1993, and came in a zip-loc bag with perforated cardboard sheets for the cards.

The creator apparently said he was re-releasing it in 2015, but I haven’t seen much of it since.

Amazon has a page on it (with the cover art of people going ‘Same substance!’ ‘Different substance?’ ‘Similar substance.’) but again, finding a copy might not be easy.

@joekster (bearded beta): The Church of the East are kind of awesome: they made converts all the way to China and even some inroads in China itself, centuries before Western Christianity made contact with that part of the world, before the Emperors there outlawed them, and the expansion of Islam prevented their further spread. Had that not happened they might have become the dominant form of Christianity on the planet.

Most of what I know about them is from Diarmat McCulloch’s book and BBC series on the history of Christianity which you can cough find on YouTube cough cough but you didn’t cough hear that from me. 😉

I’d hope it also goes with wine and flatbread.

But of course. Just be careful not to spill anything on the cards, getting the blood of Christ out of cardboard is such a chore.

One of the best parts of following this site since 2013 is following the sad saga of Roosh V: Evolution of an Aging Pick-Up Artist. Truly fascinating.
