Quote# 90002

You cannot legislate morality. I have heard that phrase repeated often throughout my lifetime. It must be true. Lennon, the founder of Russian Communism, said that if you tell a lie loud enough and often enough people will believe it. I recently came across a Christian minister who repeated that phrase to me and expressed that he believed it was true. How have we gotten so confused? Is it immoral to shop lift? If we cannot legislate morality, does that mean we cannot have a law that makes shoplifting illegal? If our laws are not based on moral principles they are of no value. Most laws do in fact legislate morality. If a law does not legislate morality the law is unnecessary. Do we really believe that the God of the Bible is the creator of the universe, and the creator of man? If so, doesn’t it stand to reason that we should look to our creator for moral guidance?

Lenin not Lennon.

It was Joseph Goebbels anyway. Not Vladimir Lenin.

Ethics, not morality.

The nonsense from you people is becoming easier and easier to refute.

That reminds me of the joke in which Mark Chapman is asked in trial why he killed Lennon. Chapman looks at the judge, quite puzzled, and says, "Lennon? Wasn't it Lenin?"

I left a comment on his site saying there is no morality in the Bible. He has deleted it. Typical shitstain.

Lennon, The basist for British rock band The Beatles,

Rhythm Guitar I think old boy. And it would be Bassist as it's a Bass guitar that Macca plays.

Laws exist to protect the haves from the have nots, any morality found within them is purely coincidental.

So it was Lenin, McCarthy, Heresy and Rambo Star in the Beatles?

One of the Beatles founded Communism? He wasn't even born yet in 1917! He wasn't a Nazi propaganda guy, either.

Well now that's interesting. I wrote a couple of paragraphs worth of comments in a respectful manner refuting most of the points he listed on his blog in the comment section of said blog and my comments got deleted. What a self righteous asshole. So Fuck you Fuqua. Notice he left one comment active just to make a straw man out of.

Holy shit, I just saw on his other quote (the one about killing(!) “unruly” children) that he is an elected politician…

How? How can you be in the public eye (as a politician is automatically) and make statements like these and nobody in the press or otherwise is calling you out for it?

I just don’t understand it. Can an American please explain to me how this can happen? I mean, the political system in Germany is quite messed up in some parts, but I can only imagine the shitstorm that would happen if some politician here would make public statements like this. This goes also for all the other fundy politicians quoted on this site.

(For the record: I have no intend to bash the American system or people. I honestly just want to understand how the system and the people that seem to thrive in it can be so different in two western democracies.)

Great. Now I have "Back In the USSR" playing in my head.

I left two comments, both informative, regarding the difference between Lenin and Lennon and the true origin of the quote. He deleted both and left his post unchanged, which tells us that he is more interested in catering to your average, hateful and misinformed fundy fucktard than in the truth.

So yes, he is, in fact, a typical shitstain.

10/12/2012 2:50:41 PM


I think you're mixing up Lenin, Lennon and Goebbels. Easy mistake to make. If you're a complete fuckwit.

"Lennon, the founder of Russian Communism, said that if you tell a lie loud enough and often enough people will believe it"

The pure FAIL is so awesome in this quote, it's earned an entry - for 'Artistic Licence' - in Tv Tropes.

Lennon was the unofficial leaders of The Beatles. It's inmoral to be so ignorant, should we put you in jail?

10/29/2012 4:47:25 AM


Lennon... That is hilarious.

The founder of Russian Marxism was, er, Plekhanov.

Goomy pls

No, that would be a genetic fallacy.

Lenin, silly, not Lennon.

It's illegal to shoplift. As you deprive someone else of their belonging, it is also immoral. It's immoral not to help poor people, but it's not illegal.

No, we do NOT believe that the God of the Bible is the creator of the universe and of man. So no, we should NOT look to an imaginary being for guidance.

If you can't tell two people apart just because their names sound similar, It's hard to consider you a reliable source
