...No problem. (At this point his blue eyes start to spark with the evangelical zeal of a Scientologist)
And the Sermon on the Mount is the same exact thing, except Jesus saying so. If he's saying the same thing then you're free. If not, then you know you're fighting what most Christianity is. Nietzsche, Nietzsche points out it's taught us to basically deny all the things we actually want and teaches that they're somehow wrong and that our animalia or instinctual natures are somehow not right.
You know, and that's fucked up! Whatever I want that's what I should... (more)
...actually wrote down and passed on the history of Ireland, their beliefs and the people – which by Church standards of the 5th-7th centuries was a big no-no. Patrick recognized that the Druids were the really cool and groovy people in Ireland and he figured if he could convert them to Christianity the rest of Ireland would follow. That didn’t work so well so, Patrick took to burning books and buildings. With the help of additional British missionaries he was able to overwhelm the population was able convert most of Ireland to Christianity by rebuilding the destroyed Druid... (more)
...a Jew walk one mile, make your people walk two. The Torah made Jews pray once a week, so Mohammed make Muslims pray six times a day. Why? So that when I arrived, I saw that it was my responsibility to deliver this hand tool and thus free all of Islam from their burdens, just as Judaism and Christianity is freed, and that is why the last line of Matthew is "I will be with you until the end of the age."
This was heaven. Something wrote us a Torah and set our values into the movements of matter so that our intellect would be slowed massively, and such movements of matter have destroyed ... (more)
...nature of Americans. Perhaps the Iraqis , the Afghanistan’s, and the Iranians who await war may not feel so culturally acceptable or understand the American duty to combat terrorism while the Americans are propping democracy up in their lands. Presumably we may believe in democracy, Christianity and so forth, but this doesn’t exalt the American right to presume that the world must accept those same beliefs, if they did accept these principals; it would be under the barrel of a gun. This union would become a tainted kind of government / religion as if they were made to marry... (more)
...The Inquisition? The Conquistadors? The witch hunts? The slave trade? Manifest destiny? The Holocaust? Miscegenation laws? Fred Phelps? Crimes against women of questionable virtue? The entire presidency of George W. Bush? They all have to do with Jesus because they were all justified by Christianity. Just like the COG’s prostitution and child abuse was justified. When you say you are a Christian, you become everything that is or was Christianity. Good, bad or indifferent - it’s ALL Christianity. A drop of water doesn’t get to claim autonomy while swimming in the... (more)
...as their winter holiday, the Nordic peoples celebrated Yule in honor of Thor, the Druids also welcomed the return of the light in December. Celebrating the end of darkness is recongnized in almost all religions many of them hundreds and thousands of years older than the Catholic church and Christianity. So, why not give Pagans their due as well? Pope Gregory I recognized that the best way to bring Christianity to the pagan people of Britain was to align the Christian holidays with those already in practice by the natives. Pagan celebrations are harvest and livestock related as well... (more)
...sort of fucking paved road, people that have never seen a car in their life, people that are really just into their religion. Theyâ€™re praying multiple times every day, dressing a certain way and doing certain things to fully observe their religion. Coming from a place like this where Christianity is just such a convenient religion. You show up on Sunday morning and put your ten bucks in the basket and you can be a bastard the rest of the week. I spent a lot of time in Mexico too. Thatâ€™s really close and accessible. Iâ€™ve spent about a year there now and I always have... (more)
... in Russia, America, and other places throughout the world.â€ http://www.uscrusade.com/ Even though we have automatically and systematically charged Islam the entire religion for the crimes of a few supposed terrorist and even thought we have not found the real criminals of 9/11 we hold Christianity and America innocent of the millions of innocent people killed at their hands in this unjust war. Islam is said to be the fastest growing religion in the world today and it now host over a billion people around the world. Americans are expected to war with innocent people and not expect... (more)
...your overall perception, and, of course the one thing that will ultimately determine how far youâ€™re willing to take each of those, your pride. Although it is sold as a positive quality to maintain I tend to think pride is a dangerous thing. I mean, itâ€™s considered deadly in Christianity (which has and continues to strike me as the ultimate irony when you consider whatâ€™s going on in the world today) and for most people it is their pride that prevents them from progress. Although at the same time it is our pride that defines what we will and wonâ€™t stand for,... (more)
...has increased with help from Hay House .... I have witnessed a number of fringe Jews AND Christians become immersed in her work because of these claims. Sonia draws them in because such statements seem to coincide with their religious heritage when many denominations of both Judaism and Christianity outright forbid Sonia's practices. Catholicism would call her work simony after Simon the sorcerer who used Christianity to further his magical ways. Judaism outright forbids divination and sorcery in many books from Moses and minor Jewish prophets. Choquette claims to have studied Kabbalah ... (more)
