It might appear so, to you. For those who acknowledge that respect and authority are important, it is a sign of the disintegration of society which leads to anarchy and all manner of evils, including rape, GBH and murder.

The consequences of 'lack of respect' for (the possibility of) the supreme being, leads to wives not respecting husbands, men not respecting leaders, leaders not respecting
ie. complete turmoil

Respect, people and society doesn't work that way.

Blasphemy makes people use GHB which could help them to inflict GBH all because they don't respect GOD.

Who abbreviates gross bodily harm anyway?

a mind far far away

I'm confused; so lack of respect for god leads to leaders not respecting...complete turmoil?

What's great is that he's posting on the h2g2 project, set up by the late, great, Douglas Adams, writer of the Hitchhiker's Trilogy and outspoken atheist.

@ Spoonerific

The Brit legal sytem does. Except ours is an abbreviation of "grevious bodily harm."

@ Paschal Wagner

Thanks! That gave me the first laugh of the day.

The you also honour the possibility of the existence of the FSM?

dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Respect has to be earned.

3/11/2009 3:57:49 AM

Oh....so the wimmin might get all uppity. My, that would be turmoil, wouldn't it?

"For those who acknowledge that respect and authority are important, it is a sign of the disintegration of society "

We saw a lot of that as a result of conservative christians not respecting the constitution.

Yeah, tell them! It's those sinful blasphemers who are refusing to respect Obama!

Respect my god or he'll do some bad things, OOGA BOOGA BOOGA!

3/11/2009 4:54:46 AM



To be precise (and I detect a high proportion of pedants round here), GBH is an abbreviation in the English/Welsh (and possibly the Northern Irish) legal systems, it does not exist in the Scottish legal system. There is not a uniform British legal system.

However blasphemy==anarchy==rape==GBH==murder is a new one on me.

"wives not respecting husbands, men not respecting leaders, leaders not respecting"

Leaders not respecting WHAT? How come you left out that part?

3/11/2009 5:11:09 AM


I don't quite think he understands the term "victimless crime" in which there has to be a SPECIFIC victim. (I use caps, because I don't know how to underline!)

3/11/2009 5:19:54 AM


That is a bit extreme isnt it?

Bearing in mind we all have a right to free speech in a way the only thing I agree about is respect in regards to interpersonal ethics. Saying for example "jesus Christ!" when something goes wrong, this man was once likely a human being (not a god or prophet obviously). Shouldnt we respect the dead as well as the living? (unless it was a complete asshole, though I cant see us saying "Oh Hitler" when something goes wrong xD.

Oh, Warner, dont forget about respecting your wife!

3/11/2009 5:23:01 AM



Again you rock :P

3/11/2009 5:24:05 AM


Nothing about husbands respecting wives i see. Respect should be a two way street.

3/11/2009 5:46:12 AM


Respect and authority can exist without the existence of gods, you know. It's defined a bit differently than you might think (for example, I think husbands should respect their wives as much as vice versa, leaders should respect those they lead as much as v.v.), and it's EARNED rather than being automatically given.

@ Scooby71

I stand corrected.
