Quote# 74617

In Houston, these MARKETs sells meat that was butchered according to their tradition, part of which is shouting the battle cry. The thing is shouted at the slaughterhouse. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halal

Islam is becoming more and more prevalent in our society; sadly there are some things we can't fight. They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want. The women are allowed to wear the "getup" when I'm out shopping. I dislike seeing a big sign saying "Halal Meats" knowing what that means, and seeing these places very busy makes me even more nauseous. They have a perfect right to have their religion.

...

I can say that, I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism, shot in the leg with a BB gun, and 2 attempted robberies just last year. I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year. But I don't think everyone is out to get me and label me a hater as a result.

I would have accepted your bible gift.
My current toilet paper is used up to the book of Jude.

Halal slaughter practices should certainly be banned, along with kosher, as they're cruel, barbaric and inhumane.

As for the rest? Meh, not very fundie at all.

"...I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism."
I think the phrase you're looking for is "shouted at for being annoying".

"...and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible."
Try money next time. The "I don't need to pay because I'm serving god" excuse didn't work for Kent Hovind & it won't work for you.

Right. Obviously this has not occurred to you yet so allow me to tell you that the lesson to learn here is: stop offering people the bible. If they're not asking for it, it means they're not interested, and if they are interested then they'll find a copy. You're just another self-righteous arsehole. No surprises there.

> 2 attempted robberies just last year

You live in Houston. For some parts 2 robberies in a year is a good year.

I read about the afterlife

"I can say that, I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism, shot in the leg with a BB gun, and 2 attempted robberies just last year. I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year. But I don't think everyone is out to get me and label me a hater as a result."

Care to give me the police reports of the 2 attempted robberies? No?

Fine, you don't want to eat halal meat? More for me. Mmmmmmm, kebabs, curries, gyros, naan... OMNOMNOMNOM.

And maybe you got shot at because sometimes it's not a good idea to get on people's property? Creeping about tends to scare people. And the robberies? Robbers don't care if you're Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Pastafarian. If your house looks like it has nice things in it and would be relatively easy to rob, they'll go after you.

"Islam is becoming more and more prevalent in our society; sadly there are some things we can't fight."

Replace "Islam" with "Religion" and I'll agree with you completely.

"They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want."

Oh, goodness me!

I hear there's even another group that has their own bookstores. What was their name again? Oh, yes. Christians.

Not that its any more relevant than your remark.

"The women are allowed to wear the "getup" when I'm out shopping."

Have you seen the Amish? How about Orthodox Jews? Hindus maybe? Are you even aware that other religions exist outside of Islam and Christianity?

"I dislike seeing a big sign saying "Halal Meats" knowing what that means, and seeing these places very busy makes me even more nauseous."

Then don't go in.

"They have a perfect right to have their religion."

What the hell are you complaining about then?

"I can say that, I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism, shot in the leg with a BB gun, and 2 attempted robberies just last year."

Oh, please. You let me know when someone attempts to flay you alive or feed you to their pet lion specifically because of your religion.

"I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year."

Stop doing stupid shit and people will treat you more kindly.

"But I don't think everyone is out to get me and label me a hater as a result."

How magnanimous of you.

Wah wah wah. All I hear is whining from this guy.

People don't like you because you're a fucking moron and because you don't know how to interact with people in a normal fashion.

Also, stop with the persecution shit, asshole. There is nobody more privileged in the state of texas than a bible thumping white person.

When everyone seems to have a problem with you, the trouble likely starts with you, not them.

I'm not saying life's a gas for us at any age, but it does get easier and your options improve relative to your non-shy peers with each passing year.

I think you should now try to get promoted to full scale martyrdom. Muslims do it regularly. Maybe if you ate some halal meat...?

It's a fact: nauseous means sickening.

Let me yell about muslims real racistlike...but then make some sob story in the end so they don't get mad. Yeah that will work just fine.

Is "market" a bad word or an insult now? I don't understand.

Should Muslim women have their religious freedom restricted and be banned from wearing their head scarves in public just so you can forget brown people exist? I say no.

Listen, unless the people robbing you and the people shooting you with BBs said "this is what we do to Evangelicals" or "we hate evangelicals" or something like that, you have no basis to claim that those were acts of persecution. I've been robbed before and while I've never been hit by a BB I have gotten hit by a stray rock some idiot was throwing. But I'm not going to use that to say "ZOMG THERE PURSECUTING TEH ATHIESTS!!!".

I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible.

You can't bother a driver while he's driving, you idiot. In some places that kind of behavior is against the law.

God forbid someone should shout while they're slaughtering an animal. The meat is immediately polluted and rendered unfit to eat. The Bible clearly says that when you kill an animal, you mustn't shout; otherwise, the meat is unfit for a Christian to eat. It's worse yet if you cover yourself while shopping. Then everything you buy will be polluted - not just for you, but for anyone who shops in the same store. That's in the Bible! Why?

Because we all know God is nearsighted. Going to the same school, or living in the same town or even the same country as a non-believer can attract God’s wrath. For example, it’s well-known that our soldiers – even good evangelicals – are dying in Iraq because the U.S. refuses to outlaw homosexuality. That’s why it’s important to phone death threats, kill their dogs and burn crosses on the lawns of atheists and beat up gays and tie them to fence posts to freeze to death so God knows you’re on His team and not theirs.

Boo-fucking-Hoo. If you don't like Halal food then don't eat halal food,but for fuck's sake, quit whining about it.

Islam is becoming more and more prevalent in our society

Being prevalent is not the same thing as takng over, quit acting like it is.

They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want.

And why shouldn't they be? America is a free country is it not? Or were you under the mistaken impression that the constitution only applies to white christians?

The women are allowed to wear the "getup" when I'm out shopping.

Tough shit. People are allowed to wear what they wish are they not? There is no law against it and no person has the freedom to not be offended.

I dislike seeing a big sign saying "Halal Meats" knowing what that means, and seeing these places very busy makes me even more nauseous.

Tough shit. The fact that you "dislike" something means abso;utely fuck all.

They have a perfect right to have their religion

Then why did you spend the entire paragraph running down the traditions and acoutrements of their religion?

I can say that, I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism

You don't even know what persecution is.

shot in the leg with a BB gun,

Shot with a BB gun is not persecution

and 2 attempted robberies just last year.

Because you were a christian evangelist? Or because someone thought you might have something worth stealing?

I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year.

And none of that, not a single thing could possibly qualify as "persecution" in any sense of the word. Persecution is being singled out for harm and/or execution for no reason other than your belief, ethnicity, or ideology.

Your Jesus was beaten and left to die on a wooden cross because of what he believed, you don't see him crying about it. Suck it up.

To me, the more ethnic markets, the better. Sure, I've gotten weird looks for being geek-pale, but when they ask, politely, whether I'm muslim, or buddist, or what have you, I reply that I appreciate good food, no matter what the culture. And they like me, and want me to come back, just to talk food differences. It's fun!

I live in Houston, and I've been forced to go to those Halal meat markets exactly ZERO times. I also don't go to Christian book stores. No one is forcing me to, so live and let live.

As for your persecution, let me tell you a story. A couple weeks ago, I found out my next door neighbor was a pastor starting his own new church. So you know what I did? I went in my garage, grabbed my gas can, walked back outside, opened it up, and... filled up the lawnmower and mowed the lawn.

He seems to be a rather fundamental sort. But you know what? I've lived here for a few months. I've talked to him several times. I only found out he was a pastor that day. I found out because I saw him working on some signs in the driveway, and looked up the URL on them.

He's never been pushy about it. He's never even mentioned it. He's just a friendly neighborhood guy, and even though he's one of y'all rapturites, he's nothing like you. The reason people, ahem, "persecute" you is that you're just an asshole.
