There are no words. Wow.

What delusional, brainwashed weirdo can honestly come up with this kind of stuff? IT BOGGLES THE MIND!

And also makes me so utterly sad there are people who believe this kind of stuff without question.

Sabyen91: rynthetyn: Sabyen91: rynthetyn: Sabyen91: rynthetyn: Sabyen91: Skyrmion: rynthetyn: Holy effing shiat. The discussion I got into over Chick-Fil-A with a hard-core right winger I've known since she was about 5 degenerated into her saying that she doesn't think slavery is Biblically wrong, just that there's better ways to do things. Ladies and gentlemen, that's what the Republican party has turned into. Defending slavery so that they can excuse their hatred of gay people.

I think she's right.

1) Slavery is not condemned in the bible.

2) There is a better way to do things.

When a Christian says "biblically wrong" I assume they mean morally wrong. If I were speaking to her I would think that she means it is ok.

Given the dumbass things she's said about the Civil War, I'm fairly sure you're right and she thinks there's nothing immoral about slavery.

Sound like a peach.

Best thing? She went to some expensive art school. Last I checked, art schools are disproportionately inhabited by non-heterosexuals, but she still didn't learn to treat people with dignity and humanity.

She must have been very uncomfortable. There are bleeding-heart hippies there too.

Oh, but when you're that convinced you're right, you look down on everybody else. This would be the girl who asked, "are Baptists Christian?" in middle school Sunday School with my brother, and her neat little view of the world and us vs them hasn't evolved since.

In that case she probably loved a target rich environment for her snobbery.


Probably. We Presbyterians are really good at being smug, snobby and theologically superior. I think going to a Presbyterian college and being surrounded by the smugness inoculated it out of me.

sillydragon: Has anyone mentioned the Conservapedia Bible Project yet? Because the bible as it is is too full of filthy liberal propaganda and stuff!


Don't get me started. Here's my favorite...

King James: Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Conservapedia:Matthew 19:24
"And I say again to you, that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for an idle miser to enter into the kingdom of God."

I mean common. Seriously?

rynthetyn: So, why do they hate David Beckham so much?

I though it might be because he inspires so much lust. But according to them, he an an overrated athlete who gets attention for reasons other than his athletic ability. Y'know, like Tim Tebow.

RminusQ: THX 1138: ...aaaaand the "expected medals" section doesn't even list Russia.

Yeah, good luck with that.

I had to go back and look to see if it was listed under "Soviet Union".

urban.derelict: "Will almost no athletes from public school sports programs
win any gold medals, despite how public schools spend more than
$500 billion annually to teach and train Americans?"
[lh6.googleusercontent.com image 60x55]

I understand that Conservapedia likes to just make shiat up and post it on the internet, but I feel that Fark has a higher standard. So I decided to look it up, legitimately unsure of what result I would find.

You know who went to a public high school in Towson, Maryland? The most decorated Olympian of ALL FARKING TIME. Ryan Lochte also attended public school. So did Alex Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber still are. Shooting gold medalist Kim Rhode attended public school, though to be fair Vincent Hancock went to a Christian private school.

So basically shut your fat face, Andy Schlafly.


And plenty of Olympians did training at my state school alma mater while attending school there - medals list is long, participant list is way effing longer - including the most decorated Olympian of ALL FARKING TIME.

The same alma mater which had (maybe still has) a class titled How To Be Gay.

Good times.

I did some digging around on that site because it is just too damn funny.

Only mention of Fark is in Media Fluff

I was surprised at how...rational...the article on Life of Brian was.

But the REAL winner is their page on Mitt Romney. He isn't conservative enough, and as a bonus "The lack of criticism of Romney by the mainstream media suggests that they want him to win so that they can defeat him in the general election. "

Nah unlike Tebow, Beckham has actually been a star in his sport because of what he could do.

Regarding the slavery discussion, I wouldn't be even a little bit surprised if the Republican Party re-introduces slavery in some limited form if they get the presidency and both houses in November. They've paved a lot of roads leading that way. They're even using the word again. Often.

Most likely it would allow indentured servitude, or maybe a limited work release program where prisoners can get early release if they agree to a certain number of years of servitude to a farm or family. Of course, the program would be overseen by a privately contracted company to ensure that no white American Christian male people end up owned. And it would of course be called the "Freedom Act" or "Human Freedom Act" or something.

The Lone Gunman: Result: Chik-Fil-A will make just as much money as before; Jim Henson's Creature Shop will be hired by another fast food chain who's been dying for them to leave Chik-Fil-A; Mike Huckabee will write a book about the culture war; idiots on the right will spend their money on fast food because they think that's what irritates liberals; idiots on the left will hyperventilate long enough to forget how impotent they are 99% of the friggin time.


A few points:

1: the "idiots on the left" aren't really hyperventilating, they're just promoting something a lot of people managed to remain ignorant of, (that Chick-fil-a donates money to hate groups)

2: Given that an increasing majority of the nation (especially the young folks who don't have heart disease yet) generally supports gay rights, chances are good this will hurt more than it helps their business.

3: Henson co would be within their rights to sue for libel.

and 4: something about evil triumphing because good men did nothing? How does it go again?

Prisoners already are being used for slave labor for all intents and purposes, and nobody seems to have a problem with it.

They're big into chain gangs, the concept of debtor's prisons (only one step past that to the "workhouses" of Dickensian lore), and the idea that "if you do not work, you do not eat." So yeah, some kind of contract whereby a person agrees to work for his/her keep in exchange for no other compensation would just make them come all over themselves.

Guys....guys.....guys!!

Wait until you read this, the rules for using Conservapedia.

Dissident voices are mad when they don't get their say. So they create their own "answer" to a "problem" of bias.
But then you create another place where a certain other bias runs rampant.

There's too many biases running around. Why can't facts be fact? Whatever happened to that?
Or is it that Conservatives can't handle that things they blindly believe to be factual, really aren't, and they can't handle the Truth?

That must be it.

whidbey: brianbankerus: whidbey: I don't think they'd be so much dissent as much as out and out rude condescension.

I posted a question in a discussion page once... no reply, it was just purged from the site. Try it yourself. Ask something gentle and easy, you'll see.

I'm not doubting you, I can just understand why they would keep their comments locked.

They aren't interested in discussion, they posted a bunch of inflammatory sh*t that's more like trolling than information.

Someone should just take their page down and fill it with a bunch of homoerotic imagery.


It looks like they no longer post their top pageview rankings. When they did, the first few were consistently topics dealing with gays and homosexuality in general.

Not surprising since the scientific world and academia use BCE and CE. Education is bad.

rynthetyn: From the footnotes:

A foreigner, reportedly a lesbian, was selected as the head coach of the already champion American Olympic women's soccer team in 2007, and in the following year that team repeated its gold medal-winning performance of 2004. Aren't there American, although perhaps not politically correct, soccer coaches good enough to run the Olympic team?

Bwaaahahahahah. Nobody tell them about Megan Rapinoe. Or Abby Wambach for that matter.


No it... appears that being a lesbian is now "politically correct" and they are resigned to this. They hardly even seem outraged. If I cared to troll them, I would contact Conservapedia with the suggestion that homosexuality appears to be correlated with medal success (something to do with team unity perhaps, like the ancient Spartans) and perhaps homosexuality/political correctness is THE best defense against atheism's detrimental effect on Olympic medal hopes.

But their oddly indifferent attitude towards lesbian athletes isn't even the weirdest thing:
Will heavy underdogs Tunisia overperform in Group A? Group A should perhaps be dubbed the "Group of Left", since the other five teams are Sweden, Iceland, and Argentina, where same-sex marriage is legal, and increasingly atheistic Great Britain and France.

Why are they so pro-Tunisia? Is it because Tunisia has a centre-right Islamist government? My mind is boggling right now. Of course, more likely: they're really farking confused.

acefox1: That's why all of the diving coverage at this Olympics has centered exclusively on diving mentor and coach Greg Louganis. I know you are probably as tired of seeing him all over your TV this year as I am. Stupid media shoving gay athletes down our throats.


CSB:
I used to mow Greg Louganis' mother's lawn, if you know what I mean. She had a bird yard if you know what I mean, nudge nudge, wink wink. Wouldn't have minded a riding lawn mower to trim all that.

Oh, and she also had a lot of grass on like a two acre lot, mowed it with a walk behind.

Here's a FB gem from a Randian, "wasteful government spending" librarian's assistant I know:

I guess they changed the rules in the all-around gymnastics qualifying to the top two from each country, instead of the top 24 best. Just another ideological example in the world of leveling the playing field, redistribution, and false "fairness," which only end up in the real despair and extinction of human spirit.


I can't even begin to make sense of this shiat.

DominoFrost: I had to stop reading it. It looked like the strange leaps in logic were getting more and more crazy.


For "fun", I read through their articles on Objectivism, Ayn Rand, Atheism, and Evolution. If you want a freshman level primer on how to commit the entire catalog of logical fallacies, you have it. At first, I laughed and shook my head at the absurdity. But over the 20 minutes or so I spent reading, it started to get really disturbing. The panicked tenacity with which the authors hold to these ideas is frightening, and very sad.

It's a very small, terrifying world these people live in.

Uh, yeah. Right.

Yes, the one with an established national religion.


Established so some dude could get divorced, which clearly goes against God. Just look at the divorce rates in your Blue States and you will realize just how costly it is to turn your back on God.


I didn't bother to read the entire thread to see if anybody responded... but if you compare the Census data on Divorces/Marriages on a state by state basis along with the 2008 election results, red states come in at .55 and blue states come in slightly lower at .52.
