Today, I learned that Penis shaped clouds appear to some people as "Angels".

Anyways, anyone who's actually read the Tanakh/Christian Bible would know angels are primarily used to demonstrate Yahweh's wrath. They aren't the mythical smiling do-gooders of the modern era. If Yahweh's angels were actually looking over the vigil, people should probably get out of greater Denver area, cause that's bad news.

sjcousins: gumpy: sjcousins: Speaking of the spiritual, back in the day we didn't have mass murders like this, you could buy firearms through the mail, and in some cities kids took their .22s to school to shoot on the marksmanship teams. Westerns dominated TV fare and the good guys always won. I could walk down the street to a field with my BB gun and nobody batted an eyelash.

But then "back in the day" we had Christmas plays in elementary school and sang Christmas carols. We had a Christmas tree in the classroom and exchanged gifts. Back in the day people worshipped God-----or if they didn't, at least they didn't try to stop those who did and they certainly didn't sue to have manger scenes and crosses removed from the public square and placed out of sight. Back in the day, people valued morality and knew that it came from God; not from government and certainly not from some big city mayor or even the president. Liberals like to push gun control but they will never admit that until the human heart is controlled by GOD, all the gun control in the world won't stop the evil hand. But then "back in the day" Americans knew such things.


Ah the comments section. Making boring stories interesting since 1991.

Yeah the derp is strong with this one.

I would be interested to know when specifically "back in the day" referred to but I couldn't bring myself to register and comment.

Yeah I did the same thing.

Kinda sad this type don't have fark accounts. Only the trolls come up with this level of derp.


No, back in the day, Charles Whitman pulled off a very similar killing spree. There were also race-related lynchings, domestic violence against women went mostly unreported, and pedophiles could escape justice by simply moving one town over.

I hate these morons who think the Andy Griffith show was a goddamn documentary.

Angels are a bad omen. Whenever one shows up, something evil happens.
 
2012-07-24 06:17:22 AM  
The shape is so vague, it could be anything. Adding to that is the traditional idea of what angels look like is probably not accurate as it's based on art created by artists depicting what they think an angel looks like. So I think it is what people make it to be. But if people see it as a sign that comforts them in the wake of that tragedy, I say let them. Even if it's based on a misinterpretation, some comfort is better than none at all.

Regardless of what these kooks think they see in the clouds, it's been pointed out that angels aren't actually real, right?

I took this yesterday, if I believed in angels I would say that this shows the angel, but since I don't I think I'll say that this shows the hero!

Heard some dumb biatch on the radio this morning talking about how she liked the other Batman movies,but she wasn't going to ever see the new one out of respect for the tragedy. Not in the theater, not even a rental. Something about how the film would forever be linked to the shooting, and it wouldn't be right to enjoy it.
(seriously lady? Fark you.)

Meanwhile, one of the kids who was actualy in theater 9 goes to see the movie again the next Goddamn day because "You have to move on with your life, and not live in fear"

On another note:
I am highly surprised that the ticket stubs from the theater aren't being sold on ebay.

Looks like the angle was 15 minutes too late to the party to do anything useful.

What is this? A pic of him showing up late and thinking 'oops, god is going to be pissed, I fell asleep on the job now 12 people are dead"


Fact 1:is people will see whatever they want to.

Fact 2: if there was a god, he's an asshole for letting a 6 year old get shot to death while trying to watch a movie.

My personal opinion is that the people who see angels and god in clouds, trees, burritos, and in dogs asses are pretty damn desperate and are grabbing at straws to justify their belief.

I could fap over and over, eventually I'll shoot something that winds up looking like an angel or god.

Trying to make an inclusive world without government forced religion is not trying to stop anyone from worshiping. This is a sad strawman.

As for evil and religion ... here is my favorite quote:

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."

Your profile indicates New Jersey...I saw a cloud very much like that during Basic training in Missouri back in '93...weird-looking, obviously memorable (to me).

Wer zu Lebzeit gut auf Erden
wird nach dem Tod ein Engel werden
den Blick gen Himmel fragst du dann
warum man sie nicht sehen kann

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Sie leben hinterm Sonnenschein
getrennt von uns unendlich weit
sie müssen sich an Sterne krallen (ganz fest)
damit sie nicht vom Himmel fallen

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
____

Who in their lifetime is good on Earth
will become an angel after death
you look to the sky and ask
why can't you see them

Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

They live behind the sunshine
separated from us, infinitely far
they must cling to the stars (very tightly)
so they don't fall from the sky

Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

WTF is the purpose of a vigil? I guess it's not as pointless as letting everyone know that your "thoughts" go out to the victims and their families even though they don't know who any of them are. It's just standard shiat people automatically say even though it has no real meaning.
