"I belong to the one who is flawless and perfect"
Oh yeah. Perfect enough to curse a fig tree for not fruiting out of season.
What any sane
person would do, natch [/hyper-sarcasm]. Assaulting people going about their lawful
business - even if it's in a temple, it was still legal
. Romans 13:1-5, and all that jazz.
Breaking his own 5th Commandment, when he said (emphasis added):
Luke 14:26: 'If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother
and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.'
...oh, and doesn't even mention word one
about your precious bigotry against
homosexuals, then he is flawed
. But then, he shouldn't be saying that about parents, least of all his own mother, seeing as he was born as the result of - via the Holy Ghost; one part of God - statutory rape.
As I stated previously, your 'God' is a paedophile, after all; he comitted statutory rape with Mary, a child
And yet, you dared
superiority to your 'God'?! At least I have sex with a woman in her thirties.
Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life's [Deleted]claims. [Deleted]credibility.
[Deleted]Sanity. [Deleted] Believability.
"You'd think that Jesus appearing in person in front of 500 people might just make the news, especially in Jesus-mad America. Funnily, I have seen no reference that even the ridiculous Fox News picked up on this."
Not so much as them merest mention of such on BBC News, or even Reuters.com, the
most ultra-reliable (certainly neutral
) news providers. Funny, that. And not in a 'funny-ha-ha' way, neither.
"But then religion thrives on the very fact that the religious will and do believe absolutely any shit that they want to believe. The oft-quoted fact that what their God seemingly wants always bears an uncanny resemblance to what they themselves comes to mind."
Especially as - certainly as Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life & all her homophobic ilk are concerned - there isn't so much as word one
in the New Testament by their precious Jesus condemning
homosexuality. Funny, that. And not in a 'Funny-ha-ha' way, neither II.
Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life = Carico:
The only difference being:
(oh, and this quote by Carico is an all-time classic):
Carico's stubborn refusal to acknowledge reality
. Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life's stubborn refusal to admit that her Bible-based bigotry is unjustifiable. Otherwise, they're both the same. Although, when I come to think about it; and I refer Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life to this...:
As it has particular relevance to her. But then, Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life here:
Thinks that an object made of wood pulp, ink, glue and cardboard can be an eye
witness. So in actuality, there is no difference whatsoever between Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life and Carico.
I refer you to David D.G.'s comment in the first linked thread above:
'Carico and her ilk are proud of their ignorance, and they insist, demand, decree that everyone else be as ignorant as they. What amazing insanity this is.'
Like I say, delusion = insanity. Two or more people sharing the same delusion = Religion
Troll/Poe/Nuts4Life and her ilk are proud of their bigotry, and they insist, demand, decree, threaten
that everyone else be as bigoted as they. What amazing insanity this is.
'But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.'
But it does me no injury for my neighbour - and his male friend - to do what they
want in private. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
What a bunch of right-wing Fundamentalist Christian Theocratic Dominionists want to do, however...!
And that's the difference between we Secularist
, Atheist people (especially here in the very
secular Europe; two words: Czech Republic), and you right-wing fundies in the US.
Me, I personally think Pride Parades are great displays of LGBT culture. And I'm a straight man.
What possible harm do they do to you
& your ilk, eh dearie? You tell me.
I can tell you how much the emergent LGBT culture, nay, lifestyle has affected me personally:
Remember: there were those decades ago, who considered that African-American people being given more rights would cause untold damage to American society. Like I say, NAACP & ACLU ring any bells, dearie?
Homophobia = Racism. Both bigotry. Both unjusifiable.
Ergo, right-wing fundamental
ist Christians who speak word one against LGBT people in any way = Racists; you = Fred Phelps. Q.E.D.
You of all people should realise the unjustifiability, nay, worse
than sin you speak, whenever you say anything other than 'Gay people are decent, civilised human beings who have as much right to exist as African-American
people do. To live in peace and security as everyone else does. With equal rights, just as everyone else has. Without anyone even thinking anything derogatory about them.
Remember the placards carried by certain people decades ago, which said 'I Am A Man'? Continue on the way you bigoted fundies do with your unjustifiable attitudes, and how long before you see protest marches with LGBT people carrying placards saying 'I Am A HUMAN'? You tell me.
Moral: You of all people being bigoted towards other people not exactly like you
? Oh, the double-standards. Oh, the hypocrisy. Oh, the SHAME! The phrase 'Pot calling the Kettle black' exists for a reason.
Just as you would be the first to say to others 'You have NO right to say the 'N'-word!' Well, now you know how certain people feel, dearie, whenever, as you say here:
"I am blunt and speak my mind. If it offends people, that is their issue, not mine"
About the equally unjustifiable things you
say about others not exactly like you
. Now, that use of the 'N'-word by others who aren't
African-Americans. Is it your issue if you are offended by such, nay, worse...?
And there were Caucasian people who once used the Bible to justify their
race-based bigotry. Like I say: Racism = Homopobia. Both attitudes have no
right to exist (not even in people's minds
, as you of all people should acknowledge). Ergo you = Fred Phelps. Q.E. and D.
...unless you change that attitude of yours, dearie. And everyone else like you.
Remember: so many good people died in WWII to eliminate the same attitudes exhibited by a certain Austrian, who was also a fundamental
ist Christian; attitudes which had absolutely no right to exist in the first place.
The last thing I would want would be is to be equated with your country's ultimate hyper-bigot (or that of a certain Austrian). Do you
*- What I do with said Bibles. I take a dump, and wipe my arse with pages torn out of such. If it offends fundies, that is their
(t)issue, not mine.
It's not my fault if those who print Bibles (PROTIP: not printed - or written - by God himself, therefore it can't be 'his' Word, but only the ramblings of flawed, imperfect, inconsistent, contradictory Bronze Age goatfuckers with ideas above their stations: men) use a grade of paper that's so absorbent!
