Quote# 75710



Maybe for your next post you could do a parody on how male circumcision is the same thing as female genital mutilation.

I wonder if you would approve of the Ground Zero building if it were a Satanic place of worship. After all, both "religions" advocate to stealing, killing and destroying. And this is America...home of freedom to worship whomever and murder 8 month old fetuses.

Gotta love distorted thinking...wake up people!

There would probably be LESS controversy if it were a Satanic center. First ammendment applies to everyone.

The only difference in my opinion if it were a Satanic center would be sad pity for people who think they've escaped religious patriarchy and then continue to embrace it from the losing side, in their black velvet and eyeliner.

Plus, you know their basketball team would suck.

"I wonder if you would approve of the Ground Zero building if it were a Satanic place of worship."

Yes. I would. First, because I'm an atheist and don't believe in Satan. Second, because I understand that there are different types of Satanism and the most common version is a philosophy and not a religion. And third, I believe the First Amendment should be upheld irregardless of whether or not you or anyone else approve of the religion in question.

"After all, both "religions" advocate to stealing, killing and destroying."

Islam advocates none of it and has quite severe penalties for the first two, much as your religion does. Similarly to your religion, a good portion of the followers ignore such prohibitions. Satanism, so far as I know, advocates none of that. It, too, has strong prohibitions against such things.

"And this is America...home of freedom to worship whomever and murder 8 month old fetuses."

Yes, the freedom to worship any damned thing you please. That's that First Amendment I was talking about.

And at eight months it's not a fetus any longer and nobody is murdering them. At that point the baby could be birthed, so why kill it?

Yup. I'd even approve of it if it was a temple dedicated to the destruction of nice cars. Whether or not I agree with people they have every right to build whatever they want on their land so long as it isn't causing a safety hazard. You know, what with a person's rights ending where my nose begins and vice versa.

Um....Your holy book is full of killing and destroying as well. And yes I would. First amendment. You also are unaware of or have not read LaVey's books which most Satanists live by.

Male circumcision IS the same thing as female genital mutilation, barbaric and pointless, not sure what that has to do with anything, though.

Oh man, the quotes, I guess they don't believe in the right sky-fairy for you.

And yeah I would approve of it, the Ground Zero building that is, well, actually, it isn't, being blocks away.

I'd still approve of it though.

YES. Home of the freedom to worship whomever. THIS IS SOMETHING WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD.

I don't live in the US, but maybe you should build an ecumenical place of worship on Ground Zero, for everyone to meet and be humans together. To celebrate our similarities, instead of noting the differences. The ones who crashed into the Towers were definitely hung up on the differences. Don't go where they went.

Who murders 8 month old fetuses? Most abortions are done well before the end of the first trimester, before the embryo has evolved into a fetus. At 8 months you probably induce the labor to start, or perform a C-section, if the mother's life is at stake. Both will allow the fetus to stay alive, if it's viable.

Male genital mutilation would be cutting off the penis head, splitting the penis shaft in two and sow the pieces onto the stomach.
Sounds just like cutting off a piece of the foreskin, right?
Both male circumcision and female genital mutilation are archaic and barbaric.

Read your Bible, Walter. It also advocates stealing, killing and destroying.

"Maybe for your next post you could do a parody on how male circumcision is the same thing as female genital mutilation."

I find both things barbaric and not something i would approve.

"I wonder if you would approve of the Ground Zero building if it were a Satanic place of worship. After all, both "religions" advocate to stealing, killing and destroying. And this is America...home of freedom to worship whomever and murder 8 month old fetuses."

Aside from your complete lack of knowledge of what Islam and Satanism is, you barely even know what your own country is based on. Kid, you don't know shit.

Read a motherfucking book.

Why would it be a parody to equate male and female circumcision? Morally, they basically are the same thing, damaging a child irreparably for some fuzzy cultural reason. Granted, female circumcision is likely far more physically damaging, causes all kinds of complications in later life and is not usually conducted in sterile surgical conditions so in many ways it's considered much worse. Also, please note that female genital mutilation is not a Muslim practice, it's a cultural one and I believe it's actually banned in many Muslim countries. It's actually most prevalent in a few African cultures, of many religions. Including Christian.

I see you've mentioned this comparison twice. Are you desperate to make them unequal because your Mommy and Daddy had little Wally's peepee snipped?

8/30/2010 11:13:58 PM



Fundie lying about being an atheist at 12 o'clock...

Go ahead and build a "Satanic temple." Does this man seriously believe that would be illegal or something? I quite agree Jews & Christians shouldn't be allowed to mutilate boys just like they're not allowed to mutilate girls under Islam (or whatever).

Is it wrong that everytime I see "wake up, people" in ANYTHING, I'm automatically wary of it?

8/30/2010 11:49:18 PM

necronomikron

Well, let's see. Would the first amendment apply?

Would the government have any particular interest in shutting it down?

Why that's a yes and a no. So... unless the group intends to do something actually, I dunno, illegal there... they'd have as much support as the community center gets from me, which is 'meh, whatever', until fucktards decided that they'd get pissy over it. Then it's 'well, they have the right. legally you guys are in the wrong'.

Well, at least headache has a meaningful, self-fulfilling name.

I am not so sure about supporting a satanic place of worship at "ground zero" as they like to call it.
Christianity and Islam are both registered religions. As such the First Amendment applies to them. However, to my knowledge satanism is not registered with the federal government and thus would not receive such benefits.

Of course this is all completely pointless, because you could build any building there. Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Pastafarians, they can all worship there if they feel the need. Christians can walk into an Islamic prayer room and pray too if they feel they should. The first amendment protects everyone, allowing them to worship their religion anywhere provided it is not disruptive to others.

Stealing? Notsomuch, it's more like "liberating". Killing is frowned on. Destruction... all right, I'll give you that one, as Satanists will go to any (legal) lengths to destroy a person who has wronged them.

Circumcision of male or female children IS abuse. They cannot give consent.

I note, cynically, your concern for the unborn, but the cutting of little boys' penises regardless of the lack medical necessity does not strike you as a barbarism?

As to a place of worship, wherever its location, or whatever religion, it is simply not an issue if you respect the constitution of your country.

OOps, the poster is Xotan]

Being in the music industry allows you to meet a whole bunch of people, so I've met a few satanists... at least they claimed they were, but how would I know. Either way, they were never really guilty of killing, stealing or destroying... maybe with the exception of destroying their musical instruments, but I put that down to an art, because these dudes are VERY good at it.
