Woe Unto Me

At this point in this holiday season, I'm pretty tired of hearing Christians belly ache about being 'discriminated' against over Christmas. They discriminate against a lot of different types of people, year around. It's about time they had a taste of their own medicine. Especially when they don't realize what they do to other people is discrimination. And I'd like to point out that Christianity isn't the only religion in this country who gets discriminated against. Christians don't have it as badly as others first of all. Islam has it the worst. There were many pieces of legislation this year that discriminated against them because of Sharia law, even though Jews have Mosaic law. Both of which are very similar. I believe even a few pieces of legislation said that only certain sizes of groups of Muslims were aloud to meet together on the streets. Now that, is some hardcore discrimination. Apparently they forgot about the Civil Rights Movement.

If Christians what to have their nativity scenes, that's fine with me. But I think that they should stay off of public property. And if they want it on public property so badly, then they should have every other major religion on display too. But I really feel that none of them should be displayed on public property. We have separation of Church and State for a reason and it seems that this line has become quite blurred. This country was founded on freedom of religion so that people would be free from religious persecution and that is not what is happening today. As this year has gone on, it's become more apparent how many types of people are discriminated by Christians: Women, Muslims, Gays and countless others. Christians sit there and bitch about being discriminated against when it comes to Christmas but I feel like they brought it upon themselves.

It's Christians who sit there and tell people who they should act, think, live, breathe and feel about all sorts of things. While they themselves don't always live up to their talk. No one likes to be told these things or have them shoved down their throat. It would be really nice if they got this concept and just stopped doing it. I've never had any other religion try and do this to me. Ever. Only Christians have done it to me and it's why I don't like going to church anymore.

If they want to have people stop discriminating against them, then they need to stop discriminating against other people. I don't think that it would take care of all of the discrimination problems. That will always be around no matter what people do. But I do believe that it would be a huge step forward in helping to reduce how often it happens.

Christianity’s Unhealthy Obsession with Islam

Christianity’s Unhealthy Obsession with Islam: "Christianity has always had an institutional hard-on for Islam. The Christian fixation for Islam is nothing like its unhealthy obsession with Judaism. While Christianity’s relationship with Judaism is a bit of a sick fascination, a mixture of love, dependence and hate, its relationship with Islam has always been one of hate, never of love, and certainly never of dependence. Christianity depends on the Jewish Bible – a garbled translation of which stands in as the Christian Old Testament – but the Qur’an came later and has never been anything less than an abomination in Christian eyes. Judaism rejected Jesus but Islam embraces him and ironically, is hated for it. Jesus is savior for Islam as for Christianity, and will return, just as he will return for Christianity – but for Muslims he is not God...."

"I Cannot Eat Your Prayers": How Student Debt Changed One Woman's Mind on "Christian Charity"

"I Cannot Eat Your Prayers": How Student Debt Changed One Woman's Mind on "Christian Charity": "From an evangelical home to over $100,000 in student loans and healthcare debt, one writer faces the ways in which even progressive Christianity comes up short.

I’m going to tell you a story. It’s the story of a good girl from a quiet town who prayed, studied hard, said no to drugs, and otherwise did everything she was told—and then went on to become Sallie Mae’s bitch and lost just about everything. This story is mine.

I grew up in an evangelical home, and was an earnest “liberal-evangelical” into my early twenties. Now I think that my former religious faith—not unlike my faith in the U.S. higher education system—gave me a warped sense of optimism about the way the world works. I believed in faith-based platitudes, plus a few secular ones...."

The 36 Rules of Life

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
2. Don’t worry about what people think, they don’t do it very often.
3. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.
4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
5. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you’ve never tried before.

The Real Weapon of Mass Destruction

Rogue Nation USA

Rogue Nation USA: "Which country refuses to sign international treaties and ignores UN resolutions while demanding that everyone else play by the rules? You guessed it.

Quick—no peeking. Who was the last American to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize?

I try this in front of audiences, including quite "concerned," liberal ones, all the time. It's shocking to hear the enveloping silence that falls. All right—it was Jody Williams in conjunction with her organization, the International Campaign to Ban Land Mines. Now why is it that so few people know that? It's not as if the American press doesn't print prominent annual coverage of US Nobel laureates, and it's not as if the Peace Prize goes very often to an American citizen...."

Gingrich: I Would Send Police To Arrest 'Activist Judges'


Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf Mic Checked at NC State by Occupy on 11/30/11

I really think it's pretty stupid of the students to stand up and clap over what the protestors are trying to say. Students and home owners have been targeted by big banks for a long time. They just clapped in favor of someone who makes more in one year than they will in their entire lifetime. Someone who's taken people out of their homes. And someone who charges insane interest rates for student loans.

The Defense Bill Passed. So What Does It Do?

The Defense Bill Passed. So What Does It Do?: "Following the Obama administration's withdrawal of its veto threat Wednesday, the National Defense Authorization Act passed both houses of Congress easily and is now headed to the president's desk.

So what exactly does the bill do? It says that the president has to hold a foreign Al Qaeda suspect captured on US soil in military detention—except it leaves enough procedural loopholes that someone like convicted underwear bomber and Nigerian citizen Umar Abdulmutallab could actually go from capture to trial without ever being held by the military. It does not, contrary to what many media outlets have reported, authorize the president to indefinitely detain without trial an American citizen suspected of terrorism who is captured in the US. A last minute compromise amendment adopted in the Senate, whose language was retained in the final bill, leaves it up to the courts to decide if the president has that power, should a future president try to exercise it. But if a future president does try to assert the authority to detain an American citizen without charge or trial, it won't be based on the authority in this bill...."
