Quote# 60676

"What an exciting time to be alive." "We are the greatest generation."

It makes me sick when Pastors and ministers make the above statements. I enjoy JR Church and his ministry, but he made the above statement yesterday. I wanted to ask him, " what time and place to you live?" I've heard it over and over "we are the greatest". I'm not a pessimist or a negative believer, but I believe these are some of the worst times to be alive, sin is rampant, our society is hateful & anti-faith, anti-morals, greedy, Godless, seekers of pleasure, Killers, homosexuals and pedophiles, thieves and drug abusers they do not seek God and they hate those who do, they kill innocent babies daily and seek to kill those born who were supposed to be aborted, We live with the possibility of nuclear anniliation. Next to Sodom and Gomorrah and Noah's day we're the worst in history. I would have rather been born in 1862 instead of 1962. Does anyone else wish they would have been born a 100 years earlier?

"What an exciting time to be alive." "We are the greatest generation."

These statements, they make me want to (puking smiley)

I'll take my computer over your old-fashioned "morals" any day. But if you want to live like you were born in 1862, go right ahead.

You can start by GTFO the Internet.

Cognitive dissonance, much?

1862? Right in the middle of a war that killed 600k Americans?

Of course, people were so much more moral back then. /endsarcasm.

This reads like a anarchist literature with jesus sprinkled in.

I'll have the anarchism, hold the christ.

he seems to be proclaiming Irish ancestry:

100 years ago he'd have been in steerage coming to the States, or suffering in the Troubles.

I've heard it over and over "we are the greatest".


Yeah yeah, every generation thinks it's the greatest generation, and every generation is wrong.

Every generation of you Fundies also seems to think that they're the ones that're going to get Raptured, too.

Miserable old fool.

If you hate the world so much, just kill yourself.

I was born in 1961 and I've been quite happy during my lifetime so far.

With the exception of nuclear anniliation, human beings have been doing all the things you listed since we decided to stand up and walk on two feet.

Human nature doesn't change.

All that stuff was around 100 years ago too, Johnny-boy, except for the nukes. You just refused to acknowledge it, since most of the bad stuff was happening to people with dark skin or no money.

My life's been pretty swell and I've enjoyed most of it. But then again, I'm not sitting around waiting to get beamed up to heaven before my life can begin.

Hey, why stop at 1862. Howabout you go live in Europe, 1348, and then see if you think we're still the worst in history.

Ignorant bastard.

I wish you'd been born in 1862 too, then you'd have been long dead till now and I wouldn't have to listen to your drivel.

"It makes me sick when Pastors and ministers make the above statements. "

Technology is getting better, average life span is longer, modern medicine is getting better, and so the criminal investigators.
Why must you guys always look on the downside of things?

" I would have rather been born in 1862 instead of 1962."

Why? So you could have died from an easily cureable illness at 35?
If life is so bad to you then get up and do something about. Don't sit and bitch about it all day.

I sure wish you were born 100 years ago, and had an abscessed molar. Or maybe a brain tumor. Assholes like you that hate the human race, and worship a god that also hates the human race, are not what I want living down my street.

If that's the way you truly feel, then fuck it. Go Amish. I'm dead serious. You wanna live like it's 100 years in the past, move yourself into an Amish community and stay there. Raise your family there and be happy.

Whiner, 1862, 1762, 1662, 1562, etc.

So much did your god love humans at the time that life expectancy for men in 1862 was 42 years. In fact 12% of children didn't make it through their first year. And those are optimistic figures for white males who had access to some form of heating and indoor plumbing - which most likely you wouldn't have had. So all things considered you'd be dead by now. Most likely killed by some disease that is perfectly treatable nowadays. But if for some reason you'd made it and lived until 1909 and beyond you had two world wars and a massive depression to look forward to. Awesome times.

Things are not worse than they were. Everything you just denounced has been just denounced by your type, and thus must have existed for them to do so, for millennia. If you'd been born in 1862, you'd be making the same rant pretty much word for word, only it'd be in a letter printed in a newspaper rather than in an internet post, and you'd be wishing to have been born in 1762.

Contrary to your above denial, you subscribe to the ultimate pessimism, which is not merely the belief that everything's awful, but that it's constantly getting worse and always will. I, on the other hand, sometimes wish I'd been born a hundred years later, not earlier, since I actually believe, overall, we're progressing. It's just a pity that progress is often fucking painful.

Let me tell you about the life in the 19th century.

First problem you would encounter is the lack of [most] modern medicines. You would be lucky to see fifth year of your life. And let's not get started on the smallpox...

Second problem would be poverty. You see, you hit the most unstable period of the whole century and the panics of 1873 and 1884 would certainly impoverish your family.

Third problem would be the amount of violence. You think today is bad? You should see the shit that was going down in the 1880's, mick.

Let's end it here, so you won't get a heart attack.

Early Industrial Revolution working classes would like a word with you...

Are if you were really living by the words of that hippie you revere so much, you'd be out there, volunteering to help those people. Instead you bitch on an internet forum.

Nerd-rage is nothing when compared to Fundie-rage much?

There is one, and only one, Greatest Generation. They are those who suffered through the economic misery of the Great Depression, then fought a world war against insane dictators who wanted to take over the world.

I too wish you were born in 1862. You would be dead and I would not have to read your insane diatribe.

"seek to kill those born who were supposed to be aborted......"

Blatant lie about Obama. Stop believing Fox News.
