You and the other idiots on Rapture Ready need to learn about a little thing called "confirmation bias."
It has your names written all over it.

Satan can be shot? Is that the point of this post?
12/22/2011 11:28:06 AM
Yeah the biggest problem in the US today is the fear someone may take away your guns..... How on earth would you survive without guns? It is impossible to live without an arsenal of guns, only foreign communist socialist nazi librats can think such a thing and look at their filthy societies... Almost no poverty, homicide rates hundreds of times less then the US, UHC, free education, social services - it's the work of the devil, I swear!
Yes, the fantasy that someone is going to take your gun is the most important problem in the US today....

Satan wants to remove your killing machines? And he's the BAD guy?
12/22/2011 11:59:28 AM
and if I was at that school, I wouldn't want you back either. Win-win!
12/22/2011 12:02:48 PM
So, Satan is behind the shootings because Satan is against having guns?
I dare say that you wouldn't want to go back to school, shootings or not. I don't imagine education with facts and critical thought is your cup of tea.
12/22/2011 12:25:37 PM
checkmateSatan ... will ... try to take away our right to have guns.
So praying to Satan might have avoided what happened at Columbine High School?
Good thing Jesus left those guns in those kids' hands! Get ye down, Satan!
Yikes! Just imagine if Satan had taken away Breivik's guns! Once again Jesus came to the rescue.
Thank you sweet Jesus. We'll keep praying for those guns!

THE STUPID, THE POINTLESS BABBLE, IT BURNSSSSSSS!
12/22/2011 2:12:40 PM
Satan wants gun control? Teh hell? I thought your imaginary bogeyman loved murder and bloodshed. And as we all know, guns are the best at causing murder and bloodshed.
12/22/2011 2:38:22 PM
Kind of duh but not really noteworthy.
12/22/2011 2:41:01 PM
For American readers: nearly everyone else thinks that guns are dangerous and nasty, and make domestic arguments and stupid pub fights lethal where they would otherwise only be painful. Which is why the USA homicide rate is so terrifyingly high compared to other countries.
I used to live in Israel. We had lots of guns for GOOD reasons.
12/22/2011 3:15:04 PM
Yes, because no one was ever shot before the year 2000.
12/22/2011 5:20:18 PM
Well, of course you believe that. You worship a god that kills at random.
12/22/2011 5:31:46 PM
And you're going to do what with yopur gun?
Did you read the article about the asshole in Pennsylvania cleaning his gun who accidently shot and killed an Amish girl a mile away?
Who cleans a gun while it's loaded?
I don't anyone who's IQ isn't higher than the gun's should be allowed to own a gun.

TB TabbyI just don't believe bullying would result in someone doing this that may have been a factor, but what person has not been bullied in their life.
Yeah, why would constant torment and abuse from people whom you've never done anything to, throughout your formative years, while the people you trusted to help you stood by and did nothing, have any negative effect?
Not everyone does this.
No...Usually they just kill themselves.
This should tell you something: if enough kids are committing suicide due to bullying that there's a special term just for suicides caused by bullying, perhaps it's not just a part of a normal childhood, or "toughening kids up."
12/22/2011 7:52:22 PM
Everyone's been bullied at some point, and a lot of us have no doubt wished we could just take a gun and shoot them (or, as I prefer, stab them half a dozen times with a large knife).
Some people are mentally unstable enough to actually do that, and guess what? Sometimes, that instability can be brought on by ... Get this, hard to believe, I know, but really! ... years and years of bullying!
Who'd have fucking thought it, eh?
12/22/2011 8:33:17 PM
TIL no one got shot, ever, before the year 2000.
12/22/2011 8:50:55 PM
Rights aren't absolute, the courts have held that for several years; this would presumably also apply to the 2nd amendment.
And of course you don't believe that...humans suck at understanding (really, truly understanding) things that they themselves haven't gone through in life.
12/22/2011 9:52:46 PM
You sound like you dropped out a long time ago.
12/22/2011 11:25:56 PM
Yeah, eleven years later, it's a really short time after 2000, eh?

"Eventually kids will think their life is more important than education, and just drop out of school."
Indeed. In fact, if people didn't want to risk death, they shouldn't have been born in the first place.

Satan in the Bible was pretty consistently pro education, pro freedom, and pro people living on earth as long as possible (didn't he kill like one person in the whole book? compare with gods multiple massacres). Yet he's the bad guy. All I can assume is that god has one hell of a pr guy.
So I'm confused as to whether this hippie would consider gun ownership good or bad. Liberty, very good, but shooting people, very bad. I'm thinking he'd be pretty anti gun. Maybe he'd allow rifles and shotguns for hunting under strict control, and handguns or automatic weapons would be nigh impossible to acquire legally. But hey, I'm fully aware I'm just doing what the Christians do and amazingly Satan appears to be in complete agreement with me. Maybe if he knew time were short before the craziness started he'd want to limit casualties when the shit hit the fan by removing firearms from idiots, though.

I second what Ken said.
12/23/2011 3:13:33 AM
Which is why I personally embrace these concepts:
THE DEMIURGE: The vicious "God" of the Bible. The version of Yahweh/Elohim that is a vengeful fascist brute is an impostor. A false God. A complete phony.
THE TRUE GODDE: The Loving Parent preached by Jesus. Also shows up every so often in the OT though not as much. The Divine that promotes charity, love & punishes the GENUNELY cruel & wicked folks.
LUCIFER VS. SATAN: Two different beings. Lucifer means "Light-Bearer" & "The Morning Star". Satan means "The Advesary" & "The Accuser". Lucifer is a good guy who was unjustly maligned in the Bible & conflated with The Demiurge/Yahweh's crony, HaSatan. Lucifer is also a name for the planet Venus (androgynous or female, perhaps?). Jesus, Himself...interestingly enough...is called "The Bright Morning Star".
LUCIFER: The Morning Star, Lightbearer, Jesus Christ, The Sun, The Son, Venus, Prometheus, Enlightenment, Gnosis...
Lucifer has been smeared, man! BibleFundieGod/The Demiurge & Satan are one and the same & Satan has been confused with Lucifer. It's confusing but the Gnostics did equate FundieGod with Satan, thus...
LUCIFER, JESUS, THE TRUE GODDE....Is the Force Of GOOD.
DEMIURGE, FUNDIEGOD, SATAN/HaSATAN....Is PURE EVIL.
The "Big Three" faiths have got it WRONG & confused "Goddehead" with "The Devil"....Humanity has been hoodwinked by unscrupulous religious nuts!
HAIL LUCIFER! HAIL JESUS! HAIL THE TRUE GODDE...OUR MOTHER-FATHER! JAI MA ADI PARASHAKTI! JAI ARDHINARISWARI! NAMASTE!
Thus ends the rant of the ShaktaPagan with a "Universalist/Interfaith/Optimist-Gnostic" bent. Please excuse the All-Caps, I can't emphasise in other ways. Thank you & have a Blessed Solstice & Happy Holidays! *HUGS*

And I thought this Jesus-Guy (you know, the one the latter half of the bible is talking about) was clearly anti-violence (tzhings like turning the other cheek, loving your enemies, turning swords into plowshares and so on)...
O.K., he didn´t exactly mention firearms ... but one would guess that he would suggest turning them into plowshares, too ;)
