This is why there's so many lesbians!

Stripper-college-guy needs to come to NCSU campus and do this, please. It'd be so much fun on many levels. Free sexy-time show, and comedic exchange wrapped into one performance.

No, there are so many lesbians because your god is capricious, if he exists. I can see Loki loving every bit of this, especially the part where the ugly gay guy decides god wants him to be a laughingstock streetcorner preacher.

Oh sure, that woman said she was aroused, but when I do that sort of thing in public I get cuffed and hauled away.

Damn double standard if you ask me.

It'd probably help if his 'point' wasn't based in lunacy.

I was going to add that. It's hard enough when you have something legitimate to say. Preaching something about lesbians from outer space just makes it worse.

I realize that it doesn't really further your cause to preach to the converted. But do you think there is a single student on any campus in America who listens to this guy and thinks to themselves, "You know...religious nutjob's got a point!"?

That's kind of my point (dull as it may be). They're converted before they get to school.

How well does this crap convince the unconverted?

I have no idea what the actual deal is with this school, but it came off as more of a positive way of encouraging people to exercise their right to free speech on important matters.  Like, rather than just smoking up and playing X-Box all day.

I'd like to say 'not very well.' But I have seen those that I used to describe as reasonable fall down a path of irrationality. All it takes is the right moment to indoctrinate, during a particularly vulnerable point in a person's life when they desperately need to feel a sense of purpose, or community. Or to fulfill a more base need, justification for a judgmental mentality that offers scapegoats for failing in their own lives.

But a lot of the kids here do seem to be watching the street / campus preachers more as a source of entertainment. Like, campus theater.

You still have that right, in a public space. A university campus is not considered a public space. Designating an area of campus as a free speech zone prevents idiots from interrupting classes and causing safety hazards by blocking sidewalks and fire exits..

Here at IU we had an "Ask an atheist" booth the other day. Got a sticker! :)

Did not really talk to them though ...only reason I would talk to them would be to quiz them, and that would be a silly thing to do...

On this day, I am proud of my alma mater. I remember such fundies there in the early 90s...they got just as much ridicule, if somewhat less stripping. I always laughed when some wayward Christian approached me eating lunch outside because I was wearing a Ministry tshirt. Funny that never happened with the RevCo ones...

Well played, UCF guy.

I disagree. I consider myself an apatheist and contend that I have no superstitious views. Or at least I'm able to recognize the logical fallacies inherent in my innate superstitious urges.

You're supposed to do it later, in my apartment. You sexy sinner you.

respect my opinion, but you have no right to hold your opinion. Liberal woo philosophy. Tolerance. As long as its toward us.

I would have thought the obvious response to the lesbian statement would have been for some girl to strip down to her undies as well, and roll all over plaid boxer boy inciting the holy name, exclaiming she is now saved, and will only be bi from now on....

/Or maybe this was all a play to attract said girl?

Who said he had no right to hold an opinion? Was he not allowed onto campus? Was he removed by force? Was he beat up? Were eggs thrown at him? Was he fined gobs of money? Was he thrown in jail? Threatened with eternal damnation? The guy came to campus to get some attention, display his superior piety, spout some cherry-picked scripture, and shame students for their wicked, wicked ways--which he was allowed to do. So he got heckled. Boo farking hoo.

Fundamentalists telling people they are going to burn in hell for not believing their mythology?
Yeah, that's pretty tolerant.

???

Why the assumption that someone who wants to mock someone else is a "liberal"? IIRC, isn't that how conservatives like Coulter, Malkin, and Ingraham make a living?

Also, mocking someone isn't denying them their "right to hold [an] opinion", it is just mocking them for the perceived idiocy of their opinion. Notice how it didn't prevent the preacher from speaking?

/did I just bit a juicy hook?
 
2012-11-28 10:55:30 PM  
He took a chance that the preacher wouldn't become excited and rape him. Oh..wait..he's not 6. Forget it.

When I was in university, the people who lived on campus would put out a call and in about 10 minutes you would get a huge mob of people dressed like the devil dancing and singing and waving pitchforks around. It was beautiful.
 
2012-11-29 12:30:27 AM  
Mocking and harassing the preacher types actually just encourages them. They want to be persecuted, even more than they want to save souls.

I'm sorry, but you obviously don't understand. I cannot prove or disprove the existence of a supreme creator/overseer/magical super being. That has nothing to do with superstition. However, I go about my life under the assumption a god does not exist (due to simple probability). I also go under the assumption, while I am typing this, that I will not be shot at by cabbage people singing show-tunes... from mars. That is also, not superstition.

All reasonable atheists are by default agnostic. It would be stupid for an atheist who was directly confronted by a magical sky creature to deny its existence. Which of course will never happen.

Because as everybody knows, herds of voracious street preachers love to clog fire exits.

I hear they can skeletonize a nonbeliever in under a minute.

That looks like a good way to start off a very fun afternoon. Step 1. Strip down in front of the goofy preacher & roll around on the grass (assuming that you look like him rather than me presently....). Step 2. See which/if any of the onlooking ladies seem interested (or better yet strip down also & join you on the grass). Step 3. Agree to head back to the apt for some horizontal calisthenics as a way to further mock the guy.

Can we please stop having this stupid argument? We all don't think there's a god, we all would change our mind if he appeared to us. Do we have to quibble over whether agnosticism is asserting you cannot know, or just that you do not know? For farks sake.

Nice. These guys were actually on campus yesterday. He's part of a four man, (well three man and one woman) group that's kind of like a derp tag team.
