OUCH...you sighed at me.
That sure told me~/.
No. What told you was...

I don't care to know the truth of your matter, but the facts remain.

With a murderer and a thief, there's a 50/50 chance you'll walk out of the elevator at all, or with your possessions. With a homosexual, you can almost guarantee you won't leave the elevator raped, or like you got robbed of your manhood.

But, I grew up with murderers and thieves. As a matter of fact, I was..... Maybe you grew up in a better environment. Maybe you have no experience to even base your argument on. You're just yapping because you feel compelled to stand up for a cause that's not even being attacked at the moment.

Now, THAT'S what told you...and that's why you didn't bother to address anything else but my saying that I sighed at you.

<quoted text>So, in the end, you agree with me. And yet, you went through all that effort to belittle me.
I sighed at you, again. But, in the meantime...
You don't speak from experience. Because I, myself, was a notorious hoodlum. I wasn't much of a fan for murder, but robbing? I liked nothing more than to make you cry like a baby before I robbed you. I liked nothing more than to be face to face with my prey. It was even better to rob you in front of the people that thought highly of you, like friends, or a girlfriend/wife. I fed off of the idea that they probably thought you was the one not to eff with...until me. And if you wanted to fight? I'd give you the first punch. But, I'd give you up to three to hit me. And if you didn't? It's all over.
Yeah. You have your preferences. But, your preferences aren't based on experience. Your preferences are based on agenda. And you failed.
You failed.
You have no idea what I'm about.

And yeah, I do have an agenda, and that agenda is for all people to live as they can and like and should.

As far as that big talk?

pfffft.

Walk that on.

OK. Then what can I do to help? I don't want that happening.
Well that's nice of you. I don't know how you can help. Maybe you could have a word with the atheophobes on this thread that characterize us as unfit people for being unbelievers. They might take correction better from someone like you than from someone like me. Educate them to the harm they do volunteering to serve as vectors for atheophobic hate speech. That meme translates into a lot of unnecessary and undeserved disesteem, danger and difficulty for unbelievers. We don't deserve to be talked about or thought about in such terms.

And you can probably already sense how it can be leveraged against you now that we have a pulpit of our own, meaning that there is practical value in you reining in that hate speech.

The are having right here on this thread are examples of something I'd like to see more of.

Once the problem has been made explicit as it has here, every time one of the Christians on this thread uses the language of atheist dehumanization and moral corruption - demons, abominations, rebellious god haters, etc.- you make the validity of our complaint more concrete and fuel the fire to resist your church, the source and teacher of those ideas.

Thanks for asking and caring.

It's a good thing your bible isn't written into law, or, you don't go vigilante on people cause the Yahweh! told you to.
And that's what I meant when I said that I prefer peace before hating homosexuals?

I wonder just how many murderers and thieves you'd search out?
Well, that's because you've got nothing better to do. In the meantime, I'd search them out before I did homosexuals.
scaritual wrote:
Right, because, who wouldn't and shouldn't feel better being compared to murderers and thieves...and coming out on top?
Who compared homosexuals to murderers and thieves? Didn't my example prove that I accept homosexuals before the others? So, what are you talking about?

Hey, check this out, lots of people think atheists are sorta like rapists, maybe a little better.
YIPPIE!
It's that kind of attitude that chokes and strangles your religion.
You eliminate it all by yourself. It's just a matter of time.
My religion is Mashiyachiym. Tell me about my religion, please and if you will.
scaritual wrote:
No, the fault is there, you exposed it, and you hide behind a religious book to disguise bigotry, and claim it as religious freedom.
Can you call it hiding if I openly express the beliefs and feelings that derive from the same religious book?

All of this because I defended Black people. Hm. Interesting.

Lemme ask ya - What would "the church" be without Christians?
Like feudalism without lords, vassals and serfs - just a bad idea.

Like the Viking church without Vikings - extinct, unless revived again some day in a new human repository.

You don't understand, and you seem to be unable to. I won't be explaining it to you without limit. What's the point? There is nothing more to say that what I have.

Eventually, I have to tell you what I just did - it's not an idea for you.

Here's a video with Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins discussing morality and science.



Harris is proposing a framework or foundation for a scientific approach to considering morality.

What I'd like to focus on is comparison.

I think we can get into comparing subjective value systems by appealing to shared base priorities. We can ask questions like, "Which value system better serves the priority of tolerance?"

I'm just thinking out loud at this point.

Interesting, because that's how I believe. I mean, I might share what the bible says is acceptable and unacceptable, but that's as far as it goes. If you reject what I share, then so, be it. In this case, all I did was defend Black people. Apparently, you got offended by that.

No "big talk," at all. This is the internet. I've always hated "turtle shell muscles." In the "hood," that's when you talk crap while either, your window's rolled up, or you're driving away. There's nothing good in that.

Actually, I'd ask for a location from you and I'd meet you. In the meantime, I wouldn't bother, either way. You'd be a waste of time.

I know this.

That whole "hahaa" would become a wishful thought. And do you know what's worse than an internet thug and hero? The anonymous poster that has enough confidence,on the internet, that allows them to defy those that they wouldn't even think of running their mouths off to if they were in the presence of their opposition. In the meantime, I can only hope we're both too mature for such nonsense.

Any religion that denigrates and classifies another person as being less than another human, based upon an innate part of themselves that is no more able to be changed than you being black(and we can forget all that crap about it being a choice, cause you know it ain't) isn't worth following, and it certainly isn't worth acknowledging as possessing any moral superiority or touted as being beneficial to Humanity and improving the human condition.

You've chosen to follow it yourself, and I wouldn't take away your right to follow it, I don't want to, but don't expect me to respect it just because it's your religion and belief.

BTW, it had nothing to do with defending black people.

If defending black people means you must offend any "people", then you need to examine what you were defending, and how you defended.

<quoted text>
Agreed. There's a noticable difference generation to generation. My grandpa was the world's biggest racist & bigot, my dad was less racist but still an intolerant bigot, I'm not racist at all and just very slightly bigoted, my sons are neither...
I think that pattern is happening everywhere, I hope I'm right.
<quoted text>
LOL, that's f_cked up...
Hey, my wife & I saw this commercial last night...
http://youtu.be/AnmDlk6F3d0 (hot girl, black bikini)
...she got all pissed off, saying that gays are "thrown in our face". I actually defended you, I told that commercial was a nice way of easing the gays into society, it's a whole lot better than some fruit loops all girlied up in a parade.....
Remember I was telling you that I think if gays would tone that down a bit, give it time to sink in and be realized by the rest of us, it'd make it easier for people to accept gays?
Good for you! You did the right thing.

Did your wife also complain about the heterosexuality "thrown in our faces" in that commercial? Did you point out the unfairness of her response?

You say that they should "tone that down a bit." That commercial handled the matter as delicately and with as much decorum as possible. The two married men were not kissing, nor even close to one another. They merely existed. How much toning down can you do? If even being seen to exist is throwing homosexuality in our faces, then what your wife is saying, and as Happy Lesbo has noted that others are saying, is that she wants gays to disappear.

Where do you suppose she learned that? Not from you, it sounds. If not your church, which you say doesn't teach homophobia, maybe it was from a childhood church she attended, or from her father, who might have learned it in church.

But back to you: congratulations. What you said is only fair. It's basic to fairness and kindness.

And a church that marginalizes people and teaches others to hate doesn't deserve to continue existing.

Why are you calling her a bigot?
Because I thought it was only fair to refer to her with the same term she referred to me as. Now, are you going to ask her the same question based on the fact that she called me a bigot for saying that although I'm against homosexuality, that I don't believe in showing hatred toward homosexuals? Probably not. But, why should you? I mean, you couldn't do that and risk your reputation in Topix, right?
Tide with Beach wrote:
Do you know what a bigot is?(honest question)
Even if I didn't, how easy would it be for me to Google the definition and post it? Regardless, yes. I know what a bigot is. And I'm not a bigot. But, when someone calls me a bigot only because I share my beliefs and feelings about homosexuals while sharing how I feel appalled at how Christendom treats homosexuals worse than murderers and thieves, or what-have-you? I can't help but think that they might be a bigot, themselves.

I'm not a fan of "Christianity." And why should I keep my beliefs to myself? Don't I have the right to express my beliefs, without prejudice? Am I spewing hate-speech while I express my beliefs? "Sure, you're entitled to your own opinion...as long as they coincide with mine," says that patriot.

So, which religion do you belong to, that's where you learnt to denigrate and classify other humans, right?
