Man, the level of projection going on in today's Republicans is almost shocking.

Does she really think that by supporting the party that stands for unrestricted greed, intolerance, hatred, and imperialism, all in the name of paying lipservice to freedom (by which they mean, freedom for the upper class who belong to the right social clubs, and the rural poor get thrown a few crumbs) and done under the banner of a heretical twisted version of Christianity, would make Jesus pleased?

If Jesus actually came back the way the bible says, to make war with the enemies of God, today's Republicans are the first people he'd annihilate.

Career teaching is a horrific job. Overworked, underpaid, everyone's a backseat driver: you just snap. I don't mean you go on a rampage or anything. But eventually you just reach a point where you just lose the ability to use judgement. It happens a lot. I'd bet mental exhaustion is behind more sick days than disease.

Next time your teacher is a sub, ask yoursef "Is it really a cold or does teaching just suck." then vote for pay rises to educators. (Raise in 'merican, I guess.)

Perhaps we need a little more outrage on the liberal side of things. Because we don't throw a a fit, because we don't lockstep... We lose ground by compromising.

He didn't say the state will take all your stuff and give it to the poor. There's a huge difference between charity and being compelled by the power of the sword to "give".

The Bible is a guide for religion, Not government. It doesn't address tax policy any more than copyright law or import tarrifs.

However, it does promulgate many moral principles that the state has elected to enforce. For instance, while the Bible clearly condemns murder, it does not call for it to be punished by secular authorities. It was human politicians, not God, who decided to enforce this Biblical principle by charging it as a Class A felony with mandatory minimum sentencing.

You're free to reject any and all laws that inspired by religious ethics, but you're going to be pretty lonely. Because the kind of assholes that feel entitled to mooch off the social contract also generally feel entitled to use their religion to justify denying rights to women and gay people. In fact, they kind of live for it...

It would be interesting to see if the GOP would choose tax cuts over gay-bashing or vice versa. Let me know how that works out for y 'all!


Do you really think the only reason most human beings denounce murder is because it says so in the Bible? Religion is NOT a neccesary part of ethics or morals.

Oooh boy,

Obligatory disclaimer. I am a Kentuckian. I'm speaking from experience on this, this ISN'T a surprise. I worked for a while in Laurel County, spent some time working in London. . .yeah, it's pure Red State territory. Saying you're a Democrat is about the same to the locals as saying you're a Communist. The scary part is, that's the "big city" for Eastern Kentucky, and if you go out a little further into the countryside, it gets even redder.

Spinning this around, I've got a good friend of mine who has a Master's in Education and his teaching license. He has been unable to get a teaching job in the Commonwealth for 10 years, apparently blacklisted from the profession (despite having his license and no formal disciplinary marks on his record, he's applied for hundreds of jobs he's certified for and has only got 2 interviews in that decade). What happened? Well, when substitute teaching a high school world civilization class, the lesson plan left behind by the Teacher said to list all the major religions of the world, and summarize their beliefs and give an example of them. He went through Christianity (and the differences between Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant and Reconstructionist), Islam (Sunni and Shia), Judaism (Orthodox, Conservative and Reform), Buddhist (Mahayana and Theraveda), Hinduism, Shintoism, indigenous shamanic beliefs, new age/neo pagan beliefs, basically everything you'd find in a Comparative Theology textbook.

So, then one of his students asked him what his own beliefs were. Since he hadn't mentioned it in the listing of beliefs, he took that as a chance to explain Agnosticism. He briefly described what an agnostic is.

The kids were horrified. It was like they'd never seen one before, and they could not grasp the difference between an agnostic and an atheist. . .and they'd been raised to see atheists as evil hellbound devil-worshippers who hate God. A couple of the kids immediately tried to convert him to Evangelical Christianity. While this was going on, a student asked to use the bathroom. Instead of going to the bathroom, she ran to the Principal's Office to apparently tell everyone there that the substitute teacher was telling everybody that there is no God and trying to convert the entire class to atheism. Within a few minutes, my friend was called to the Principal's office over the intercom, and abruptly fired, with no real chance to explain himself or what was going on.

On top of it all, apparently some of the kids (or their parents) called the local TV news to tell them that there was a "militant atheist" trying to convert schoolkids to atheism at a local high school. They ran the story, saying that "the teacher was not available for comment", despite apparently making no effort to contact him.

He's basically blackballed from the public schools after that. Checking his records makes it clear there is no formal disciplinary marks against him, and his license is in good standing, but once word got out he was an Agnostic, he became unhireable

Also, FTFA: "She said Baker responded by telling Chelsea she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare."

Trying to say that because of Obamacare, people will be denied treatment in Emergency Rooms? WTF? That's Derp so refined and weapons-grade that it should be banned under international treaties as a war crime.

A bumper sticker I would actually consider putting on my car...

I am not sure it would be a wise move. You wouldn't want your car vandalized by "Christians."


A friend of mine has a bumper sticker he put on his car that says "The only problem with baptists is they don't hold them under longer." He routinely has people yelling at him. I bore witness to it one day as we were standing in a parking lot talking and an older gentleman in a van drove up and asked in a rhetorical way, "Is that a hate crime?" The latest hit was his rear right tail light was mysteriously smashed out.

Probably not the smartest thing to make himself a target like that. Still, I don't believe he has ever yelled at anyone or vandalized their property based on an absurd bumper sticker.

Jim_Callahan: liam76: Jesus said a lot more about helping the poor, the difficulty of rich people getting into heaven, then talking about gays (whom he never explicitly condemned).

No idea where these farktards get this stuff.

The bible. Paul, mostly. It's hard to discard the bits about gays (and a few other choice ethnic and behavioral groups seemingly picked more or less at random) being evil because it's closely tied to the post-resurrection miracles and books of the new testament, and if you throw those out you also lose, among other things, the bit where god removed the requirement that you be Jewish before you become Christian. Plus a lot of the bits allowing there to be a church in the first place.

So if you want to be a Christian without having to marry into a Jewish family first (it's not the easiest religion in the world to join), and you like eating bacon and there being organized churches beyond informal gatherings, you're stuck with the version of Christianity that has passages decrying gay and premarital sex, i.e. the ones that easily can justify wanting to make sodomy illegal and deny birth control to unmarried women.

//There were at one point denominations of Christianity that weren't part of the councils at Nicea that formalized the contents of the new testament, but I don't think any of them are around anymore, though the occasional masonic lodge will pretend to be one for the usual "seeming more mysterious 'n' shiat" reasons. Even Protestants that don't fully hold to, say, the Nicene creed typically still respect the council's Selection of texts.


I am not saying you have to throw them out, I am saying push comes to shove what Jesus said should trump what Paul said as being more important for christians.

You just summed it up. You and I likely have the same basic core beliefs, but there's probably a ton of of details we don't agree on. In today's GOP, even the details must be adhered to in order to be a member of the club.

We don't get outraged because, despite decades of conservative claims, we don't have a unifying voice. And I would hate for that to be the case. I agree that there should be more (much more) outrage, but because we're not all lockstep to some am radio show, that's not happening.

WorthNoting: Ilmarinen: WorthNoting: Rockstone: Even when I've had problems with teachers being liberal and flaunting it, they've never really gone to the lengths we see in this article

What about college professors asking if anyone in the class believes in God and then mocks those that do for the entire semester?

What about them? Where are they?

I personally had some of them as professors, so they do indeed exist.

Knew others who had similar college experiences - at different colleges than.the ones I attended.

Not sure why "where" matters. Public colleges in the United States.

As to "what about them"? Was just curious how others felt about professors who chose to do this.


Had a crazy feminist history professor, likewise had a far-right (authoritarian-leaning) government prof. Had no real issue with either. They kept their biases out of their grading and were ok with dissenting opinions. The far-right government prof would call me out in class because he knew I'd have a differing viewpoint to offer. Wasn't ever ridiculed or anything even when I'd take a purposely provocative stance.

There's a difference between professors that make their beliefs known and those that try to enforce their beliefs.
There's also a difference between those who are teaching adults and those who are teaching minors.

Personally I think that being exposed to different viewpoints and made to defend your own is healthy and helps you learn to actually think rather than simply parrot. This should be encouraged. That said, for cases where professors are trying to enforce adherence to their own views, well... every university has a chain of command. Properly handled even a single student can affect change. What did you do about the professor you had?

I have a grandmother who is a both an evangelical and a diehard Tea Party type, who after about the tenth time she posted on Facebook the same screed about how the election was a clear fraud and they needed to find a military leader (one of "our boys") to help "take back" the government, I decided it was best to risk taking on the trolls and atleast attempt to rationalize with her, because I felt like no one was even communicating with her about how unsound her beliefs are.

Rather than trying to debate policies, I asked her if she would be willing to lose 800,000 lives like the last time the country was torn apart. I asked her if she was ready to bring about another crackerjack general willing to serve his country like Pinochet, Galtieri, or Ghaddafi. I told her I felt the words she was saying were malignant and I would rather die than allow a military coup, and that I would say the same if it were a Democrat in 2004 who was suggesting it. I used that as a neutral example, because the fact of the matter is that it is preposterous. I knew a lot of Democrats who were sad and hurt in 2004, but none of them were acting out that war was the only choice, as she replied.

She is living in a dangerous fantasy world with no consequences. I have no pretensions that she is anything resembling a Christian, other than she would like to force everyone else to be.

Well, I see you're applying for the psychology teaching position.

Yes. As a good Republican, I want to teach Republican psychology in a Republican class and a Republican school.

I see. Fine. And your degree in teaching is from.

Republican University, the Ronald Reagan School of Psychology

Both: All Hail Ronald Reagan! He can do no wrong as he walks among us still!

Very nice. Sadly, I must admit we have some of them in our school.

Blacks?

No.

Mehicanos?

No.

Underachieving drooling retards?

Well, this is Kentucky, so yeah. But I'm talking about Democrats. We have some children who align themselves to the Democratic Party in this school.

Really?

Yes.

No. I mean, really? This is 2012.

Well their parents get free stuff from the government. Money, cell phones, food. All they do is sit around watching free cable TV and breed.

Oh them. Well, none of their demon spawn would be smart enough to get through psychology. Plus they'll never get in to Heaven.

Oh no. They'll get in to a private college before they'll ever get in to Heaven.

Ha ha ha

Quite. Ha ha ha. So, you'll take the job?

Sure. I can't wait to teach all those young Republicans about psychology.

You know, you'll have to tell them that psychology is a "Black Art" like Medicare.

Of course. Republicans are smart enough to see through all this hokey. Jesus made them what they are. In his image and he wants them to have most of the stuff.

You know? You're pretty hot in that business suit and high heels.

That line reminds me of this Christian radio show I heard a number of years ago. My wife and I were driving in PA, surfing the radio dial for something to listen to, and we came upon a Christian "kids" show with a catchy little number playing. I don't know what the actual title was, but the chorus went,

"You can make a soup from a chicken, but you can't make a chicken from soup!"

The rest of the lyrics were standard Young Earth Creationist babble, but man, it had to be one of the funniest songs I have ever heard. I've searched everywhere to find a copy of it.

"You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven"


Why does everyone here have a problem with this statement? This seems like a pretty straightforward logical proposition. It states, the set of people who are Democrats and the set of people who go to heaven have no common elements. Any atheist would conclude this proposition is obviously true since the set of people who go to heaven is itself a null set. Even for Christians it is not demonstrably false: the Bible names exactly two people who have gone to heaven: {Elijah, Jesus}. Neither member of that set was a Democrat at the time. 

So, yeah, the teacher is a bully. But she's right.

pedobearapproved: Well high school teachers are tenured now, like professors.


No, they are not. For one, contracts for public school teachers differs tremendously state to state, thus saying "high school teachers" would be extremely inaccurate. Second, "tenure" refers to professional contract teachers which provides various benefits based on the state; these benefits may include (note "may") preferred employment over nonprofessional contracts, preferred place or position of employment, automatic renewal of contract, appeal of termination, professional development for failing teachers, and more. Nowhere, however, is this near tenure for professors; the principal is still able to dismiss a teacher but has to have given a reason and given notice for a chance to correct, which basically protects from a single poor year after several proficient ones.

So... shut the f*ck up.

Career teaching is a horrific job. Overworked, underpaid, everyone's a backseat driver: you just snap. I don't mean you go on a rampage or anything. But eventually you just reach a point where you just lose the ability to use judgement. It happens a lot. I'd bet mental exhaustion is behind more sick days than disease.

Next time your teacher is a sub, ask yoursef "Is it really a cold or does teaching just suck." then vote for pay rises to educators. (Raise in 'merican, I guess.)


Riiiiiiiiight, because money cures mental exhaustion. I always forget about that direct correlation. It makes sense, the people with the most money are the most mentally sound.
