“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there — bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death.
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”Based on the false premises that both you, and Phil Robertson, accept - the Bible is the word of all knowing and all powerful god - he is right, and you are wrong.
- Start hating gay people like the bible instructs you to. Don't forget to stone all adulterers as well.
- Continue being a hypocrite. Don't forget to get angry at people who cause cognitive dissonance by almost literally quoting uncomfortable shit from your guide to eternal salvation that you thankfully don't follow.
- Recognize that the premises are false. Admit that the bible is fucking wrong on this issue which should be obvious to any moral modern human being.
Do you hold unquestioning down-on-your-knees-no-criticism-allowed reverence for anybody? I beg you to reconsider. Nobody should ever be beyond criticism. This doesn't mean that you can't genuinely like and respect somebody - just but be realistic.
Many people don't form their own opinion, but they readily adopt the opinion that is handed down to them - from the government, the mainstream media, the church, the family, etc. Such uncritical thought I dislike profoundly. I can't say I hate it, because hate is emotional. I vehemently dislike it in a fully rational manner.
Do not be one of these people. Do your best to perform independent fact-checking. Don't be gullible and easily trust what someone else says to be accurate - myself included. Even if the other person has no ill intent, s/he is probably acting on bad information themselves and is just relaying it to you. Sure, it takes a bit more effort but being on your toes intellectually goes a long way in developing critical thought.
Nelson Mandela: what do you know about him? I'm sure you heard that he ended apartheid (the racist white-ruled regime) in South Africa. I'm sure you heard that everybody loves him. I mean EVERYBODY. He's revered like the second coming of Christ, but actually more so, since not only Christians love him. Obama loves him, Putin loves him, the Pope loves him, even Gaddafi loved him. Hell, you probably love him. You may even think I'm a tasteless prick because of the title. But what else do you know about him?
Why do you love him? After all, you likely don't know all that much about him. If you are one of the people who knows a lot about Nelson Mandela and you still love him profoundly - my apologies. However, I don't think that applies to most that do. Just admit it. You love him because everyone loves him. You love him because you were told to love him by the media. You love him because it feels good to believe that someone can be a genuinely good, and just, leader worthy of respect and reverence.
You know what else feels good? Doing drugs, getting drunk, eating junk food, having unprotected sex, etc. Do realize, though, that doing some of these things comes with very undesirable consequences. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the price paid for choosing to believe and revere charismatic leaders without criticism has been the death of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS throughout history. Enjoy responsibly.
Nelson Mandela founded the “Spear of the Nation”, which was the violent wing of the ANC party. He was in charge, when this organization unleashed terror on mostly civilians. A few excerpts follow.
In the Amanzimtoti bomb on the Natal South Coast in 1985, five civilians were killed and 40 were injured when MK cadre Andrew Sibusiso Zondo detonated an explosive in a rubbish bin at a shopping centre killing five people, including three children, shortly before Christmas.
Orders from whom? Your favorite guy, of course.
A bomb was detonated in a bar on the Durban beach-front in 1986, killing three civilians and injuring 69. Robert McBride received the death penalty for this bombing which became known as the "Magoo's Bar bombing". Although the subsequent Truth and Reconciliation Committee called the bombing a "gross violation of human rights", McBride received amnesty and became a senior police officer.
You've got to love the irony in the naming of various government programs and such. Sounds like lies and coverup to me.
The bombing campaign continued with attacks on a series of soft targets, including a bank in Roodepoort in 1988, in which four civilians were killed and 18 injured. Also in 1988, in a bomb detonation outside a magistrate's court killed three. At the Ellis Park rugby stadium in Johannesburg, a car bomb killed two and injured 37 civilians.
Yes, soft targets. Mandela decided to target civilians instead of the military or the police.
From 1985 to 1987, there also was a campaign to place anti-tank mines in rural roads in what was then the Northern Transvaal. This tactic was abandoned due to the high rate of civilian casualties—especially amongst black labourers.
The TRC found that torture was "routine" and was official policy – as were executions "without due process" at ANC detention camps particularly in the period of 1979–1989.
That's OK, because the torturers all got amnesty later. Nelson Mandela calls that reconciliation.
Yes, I am being purposely cynical. Hopefully you recognize that this man was not without fault, and definitely not a saint.
As of right now, the results are:
42% - 177 deviants said I don't know / Equal
34% - 141 deviants said Rape
24% - 99 deviants said Murder
To the people who chose the first two options, I would like to make the following argument. Speaking to a rape victim, you are in effect telling them -
"You've been raped. I believe rape is worse than murder or just as bad. You are alive now, but I'd much rather (or indifferent whether) you'd have been killed instead. Your life after rape is worthless, or it has negative value - you can't possibly enjoy your life. I believe rape victims can't recover, since obviously murder victims can't recover."
Furthermore, it's logical to argue that people who voted that rape is worse than death are recommending that rape victims should commit a quick and painless suicide after (or preferably before) being raped.
What nonsense. Rephrasing the title of the journal: Being a rape victim is better than being dead.
To start, here is a nice list of what the US government has done to "their own" cattle (err, people) - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unethica… This chilling list concludes with "As of 2007, not a single U.S. government researcher had been prosecuted for human experimentation, and many of the victims of U.S. government experiments have not received compensation, or in many cases, acknowledgment of what was done to them." I'm not a big conspiracy theorist, but these are only the acknowledged such programs. It's quite possible that there are far more of them.
I'll remind you again. Not a single. Fucking person. In the West, including the US. Was ever. Charged with any wrong doing regarding any of this. Ever. Never. Ever.
From Wikipedia - "Racism is usually defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior, or superior."
To me, this suggests that West Africans have a genetic predisposition to the ability (with hard work and training) to run faster than any other human. I am, therefore, a racist. I challenge you non-racists out there to provide an alternative explanation which explains this overwhelming discrepancy.

Two of the most popular comments take the familiar form, but I did not expect this from a liberal atheist crowd:
Only the extremely stupid could deliver such hate dribbling message and be surprised that have incited violence against themselves." - Free speech equivalent of rape apology: well she was asking for it by wearing that skimpy dress in the bar full of men!
Here's an animated sequence with detailed information of all drone strikes in Pakistan: drones.pitchinteractive.com/ That's only Pakistan, not Iraq, Afghanistan, or Yemen. That doesn't include mortar rounds, tank shells, RPG's, mines, etc which US troops use on the ground every day. Naturally, a large number of these weapons end up killing civilians, because that's the reality of pointless war.
So this is an actual news story, I'd like you to weigh in on this. I will link to the news story later, and also link to the Facebook post so you can see the comments for yourself.
Men currently suffer 95-99% of all work related deaths. Let's bring more women into dangerous professions like garbage collection, fishing, logging, roofing, etc. It's so horrible that women are viciously discriminated against in these prestigious and rewarding occupations. In the interests of gender equality, women should have their fair share of crushed limbs and broken backs - something they are really missing out on in our severely sexist society!
Only men are sent to die in a war situation via the draft. Tens of millions of men have died on the battlefield in the 20th century, while women suffered a much lower casualty rate. That's just not right. Let's make it fair and send women to die, too, so that they can get the opportunity to demonstrate their valor and get blown to shreds by IED's on the front lines. It's especially disappointing how women in the armed forces do not receive dangerous combat roles that they deserve, which is why currently their casualty rate is also orders of magnitude less than men.
Unfortunately, women get to live this wretched life in which they are severely disrespected, abused, and discriminated against much longer than men on average. This is just not right. We should stop spending so much money and resources on women's health - such as these never ending breast cancer campaigns, while spending two to three orders of magnitude less on prostate cancer. Clearly, this is a clever plot by the patriarchy to get many extra years of constant demeaning and discrimination for each woman who lives longer. Women, too, should enjoy early death from treatable conditions that men currently enjoy. It's a basic human right, really!
Oh, I could go on and on here. There are just too many ways in which the women in the West are discriminated against. We really need to keep striving for equality!
What meanings do the words "want", "freedom", "charity", etc have in a world without selfishness and self-interest? None. How can you want what's good for me when I want what's good for you and nothing for myself? There is no want. How can you be charitable when the people you want to help have no interest in being helped for their own sake? There is no charity. What free will can you imagine when your own desires are always secondary to those of others and the collective? There is no freedom.
*Limited scope offer only! Acts of charity not included. Helping people because it makes you feel like you are living a fulfilled and meaningful life (while making a difference in the world by helping others) not included. Helping your loved ones because you evolved to do so and fully expect reciprocity not included.
Please vote here, if you think it deserves to win Thanks for your support! Apparently the rules are that you can vote as many times as you like, so long as it's once per hour. I have no idea why they made it like that, but these are the rules.
