And yet Jesus never said, “If they prevent you from worshiping me or they oppress you, kill them.” Instead, he said, “If they prevent you from worshiping me, don’t worry, because you will be blessed in heaven. Continue to love them no matter what.” By this alone, Jesus > Mohammed.
This made my heart ache for that man, but then I remembered a thing or two that Jesus Christ said:
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
Well, words have definitions. But language is constantly changing, yes. My smartphone is technically a computer, right? In 100 years, though, “computer” may be an outdated term. In 100 years, my smartphone will be an antique, but it may be referred to as something like, I don’t know, some new word. Like “procepidor.” “Here is an antique from 100 years ago, a Galaxy S3. The procepidor inside it is powered by Android,” blah, blah, blah. So the language has evolved. “Computer” is a word no longer used, but my antique smartphone will still be a computer regardless.
Language may evolve to a degree, but religion doesn’t, or at least Christianity doesn’t. A cross will always mean to a Christian what it has always meant. Marriage will always be one man and one woman. Simply saying otherwise does not make it so.
You’re Mulatto, yeah, and liberals have turned that into an offensive word, but that doesn’t change the fact that you’re Mulatto. You could even say you’re a mutt, and no matter how offensive some might think that is, it’s still true. (Of course, we’re all mutts when you get right down to it.)
You say, “If I want to call it a marriage then I should be allowed to.” Let me ask you this: If I rape a little girl and I want to call it love-making, I should be allowed to, right? If I want to call her an adult, even though she’s six, I should be allowed to. Say I have a penis but I wish I had a vagina. So I call myself a woman. Well, regardless, when they do an autopsy on me, the medical report will say I’m a male. Because by definition, I am a male, no matter what I say. So no, you can’t just assert something as a fact if it’s not a fact. That’s called living in a fantasy.
And “religious” is not the same as Christian. “Religious” is a broad term. Embracing the things that God abhorred—embracing theft, emracing lying, embracing homosexual sex, embracing impure thoughts, saying that these things are okay—is anti-Christian. You may believe in God and believe Jesus died so you can go to Heaven, but if you contradict God’s teaching by saying that the things he abhorred are actually not bad at all, you’re not a Christian. By definition. See Romans, chapter 1. Towards the end it gets interesting. But anyway, you don’t have to be a Christian, no one’s forcing you. You believe in God and Jesus, that’s fine, but by definition you’re not a Christian. Now, if you’re having gay sex because you’re addicted to it or something, that’s a different thing. If you’re TRYING to stop sinning, and if you acknowledge that the sins you commit are actually sins and you try to turn away from them, then you can still be a Christian. But if you do things that God says are sins but you say, “No, these aren’t sins,” then you’re not a Christian, period, by definition. Everybody sins. It is those people who sin, acknowledge their sin, and sincerely TRY not to do it again who are saved by Christ. Being addicted to gay sex and trying to quit it is different in God’s eyes than having gay sex and NOT trying to quit it and embracing it as “no big deal.”

Here’s the difference:
Most Christians are not WBCers.
WBC is limited to the US.
WBC doesn’t kill people.
There are only a few hundred WBCers, maybe a few thousand sympathizers. Their numbers represent far less than 1% of all Christians.
Roughly 25% of Muslims support violence against civilians in order to advance Islam.
That 25% is spread out over the entire world.
That 25% Muslims kill people or support killing people.
That 25% of Muslims amount to hundreds of millions of terrorist or terrorist sympathizers.
Based on murder statistics alone, the world would actually be a far, far safer place if 50% of its inhabitants were Westboro people than if 50% of its inhabitants were Muslims.
Austin, TX — Edgy atheist libertarian unsure how to defend Islam while also mocking and hating religion in general.
“I don’t know, it’s just really awkward,” admitted 27-year-old Jared Howell. “I mean, I hate religion, and I hate religious people, but I really want to defend the exotic non-American religion to keep being edgy, you know?”
Early reports are that Jared is taking time off from his 5-hour daily bashing of religion as “evil and murderous” in order to attack Christians who refer to Islam as “evil”.
“You’re just another BIGOT”, said Jared Howell, from behind his elaborate neck beard.
Early reports are indicating that this has nothing to do with concepts or philosophy, but is mostly just a psychological reaction caused by spite and cultural rebellion.
We’ll have more on this as we’re updated — stay tuned.
This is great, hahaha.
Apparently, this is a picture of the guy who sent the ricin laced envelopes to Congressmen and Obama.
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Allllll that speculation that he was a Republican or a Tea Partier, and the whole time he was a Democrat! (By the way, the fact that he’s a Democrat means he’s not entirely a Christian, and the fact that he tried to murder someone proves that.)
FACT: Every assassination or assassination attempt on any president, Republican or Democrat, has almost always been carried out by a liberal.
What is the state of higher education here in this glorious nation of ours?
Let this excerpt from a Miami CBS affiliate provide you with the essence of academia:
Ryan Rotella, a junior from Coral Springs, said the incident began when his professor, Dr. Deandre Poole, asked students in the class to write the word “Jesus” on a piece of paper, fold it up, and step on it.
In case you have the, er, nuanced brain of a liberal, the subtle implication of this educational assignment is that Jesus is worthless.
The student is a Mormon, and being that Mormons and other followers of Jesus Christ have this weird religious respect for the Man-God Who saved them from eternal damnation, he refused to participate in the activity; that is, he refused to permit himself to be used as a tool with which the teacher could express his own personal animus towards Christianity.
It can be safely assumed that the teacher, Dr. Poole, is either an atheist, a liberal, a liberal atheist, or a Satanist, because, when the student refused, Poole hissed and backed into a corner, boils erupting all over his skin, shouting, “Out! Out! You’re suspended! Get out!”
At least that’s how I imagine it. Rotella was suspended, though, and something tells me it had nothing to do with his refusal to step on garbage for a pretentious teacher who thinks his lesson is about to blow everybody’s mind, and everything to do with his ability to think independently and resist the teacher’s coercive powers of indoctrination.
Hey, as long as this school, Florida Atlantic University, receives zero federal funding, I’m fine with allowing the teacher to preach whatever messages of intolerance and bigotry that he wants. But there’s no argument that can be made to convince a level-headed, fair-minded person that colleges are not a hotbed of liberal teaching and anti-Christian fascism.
I don’t know, maybe it’s not so big a deal. I mean, President Obama made clear in 2008, so that we didn’t get any wrong ideas about him, that he believes we are not, repeat, not a Christian nation, and how could we be so backwards as to believe otherwise? [source]
Nah, I still say good for Ryan Rotella for standing up to a fascist teacher and not abandoning his convictions. When Dr. Poole goes home at night, he can no longer look into the mirror and bellow triumphantly, “Sieg Heil!”
He also said nothing about torturing animals. The New Testament does say stuff about homosexuality, though, and if you believe in the Gospels, then you must believe that the rest of the Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit. “All love is good”? Some people fall in love with their animals. That’s but one example of bad love.
Anonymous asked: "God hates gay-ness." No, God doesn't hate anything. He may look down upon some things, but he certainly doesn't hate anyone.
I didn’t say He hated anyone. He hates gay-NESS! My freakin’ gosh, are you serious? He hates sin. God hates sin. The Bible says he abhors it, which is more than hate. Gay-NESS is a sin. God hates gay-NESS, not gays. I didn’t say he hates anyONE, I said he hates a THING: gay-NESS. Comprende?
Anonymous asked: The Bible is the word of Man. Not the word of God. You are the one who is mistaken.
Ohhhh. But wait…then why don’t liberlals love the Bible? Liberals are always willing to grant more power and rights to mere human beings (such as that make up the government) than ordinary people. So I’m confused.
There is a reason Newsweek as a print magazine met its demise last year. Between 2008 and 2012, editor Tina Brown tried to make up for a decrease in revenue by catering to a slightly different audience. But even still, nobody was buying their liberal trash, so now it operates as a solely online magazine.
Someone alert the folks at Newsweek that we’ve found the cause of their troubled sales.
Last week’s digital cover pictured President Obama in profile, facing stage right, head tilted every so slightly upward, forward-looking, confident, victorious. The light hitting his face creates a darkness behind him, a metaphor for his leading us into brighter, glorious days. And below it all, in bold text, the headline: “The Second Coming.”
This is one of the more flagrant examples of the media’s likening of Obama to Jesus Christ. Newsweek has previously published similar imagery to attribute, if not Christhood, at least holiness to our President. The May 13 issue of last year pictured Obama on the cover with a rainbow-colored halo hovering over his head, accompanied by the celebratory headline, “The First Gay President” (this was after Obama came out in “support” of gay marriage).
Other examples of comparisons to Christ include but are not limited to:
- Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam leader and friend of Obama, saying in February 2008, “Barack Obama, to me, is a herald of the Messiah,” and, “[Obama] has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
- An elementary-school teacher on a taxpayer-funded salary had her students sing a song about Obama’s “glory” and how we need to “serve him.”
- Teenagers at the Urban Community Leadership Academy chanted militantly about Obama being the “Alpha” and “Omega.” You’ll never be more creeped-out than when watching this video.
- Another example comes again from Newsweek, this time with another editor, Evan Thomas, saying of Obama in an interview, “He’s sort of God.”
- There was this painting of Obama in a Christlike pose and donning a crown of thorns. It was officially unveiled in Union Square in Manhattan to mark Obama’s 100th day in office. There was a big to-do about in conservative media.
Certainly Obama has seen or has at the very least been informed of the imagery that is out there (example 1, 2, and 3). But he has not once addressed them, not even to say, “Look, guys, I’m flattered and all, but I, as a Christian, am offended at the comparisons, and you should really just knock it off, please.” The reason this has not happened, I believe, is because Obama’s image of himself is not that far out of alignment with these messianic comparisons. He has no qualms about them. He is notoriously narcissistic.
There are countless other examples, and it all brings me to this point: economic woes aside, no nation can escape judgment when its people worship a false god, especially when that god is alive and has the full ability (and time, when he’s not golfing) to denounce the Christlike portrayal of him.
There’s supposed to be a separation between church and state? Hold on, I wasn’t aware of that. Where does it say that? I’m being serious. Can you expound on this?
You’ll also note, I hope, that the woman professed to be a Christian. That’s why I used the Christian argument. If she were an atheist, of course I’d use a different argument. And we weren’t debating the legality of gay marriage, we were debating the religoius aspect. Why were you unable to comprehend this?
Also, why do you support government marriage at all? Why do we desire a giant, inefficient bureaucracy to give us validation? Do we feel better when the government approves of us? I think the government needs to get out of all marriages, gay or straight. It has no authority or business being involved in marriage.
Anonymous asked: I very much believe in the teachings of the Bible, and the only 'proof' of homosexuality being wrong that I see is in the same book that said I could sell a young girl as a slave.
Really? There’s nothing over there in Romans or anything? Chapter 1 maybe?
And the use of logic doesn’t come into play with you? If God saw that a male-female relationship was “good,” then that means that that’s the only relationship that is good. He made marriage precisely as he wanted it, precisely as he saw good, precisely perfect for Him: male-female.
