Elegy: I love it when a bunch of self-righteous turds dedicated to groupthink get pwned by the Internet.
Tigger: At what point do we at least put genocide on the table for discussion?
Fuggin Bizzy: Tigger: At what point do we at least put genocide on the table for discussion?You're an asshole.FYI
Walker: I find myself agreeing with Pat Robertson.....and this scares me.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?
ciberido: Elegy: I love it when a bunch of self-righteous turds dedicated to groupthink get pwned by the Internet.So "get pwnded" now means "gets a lot of funding"?
dr_blasto: If Pat Robertson is a voice of reason in your world, you have some very serious issues.
jayhawk88: Well this will be fun. These donations and maybe a slight bump in enrollment will keep the school solvent another year, maybe. Then they're going to be back facing the same problem, and what will the solution be? More and derpier tests of course.
PunGent: Looks like California isn't as godless/atheist as the fundies say...
Stone Meadow: PunGent: Looks like California isn't as godless/atheist as the fundies say...The Bible Belt has NUTHIN! on the Inland Empire of California.
edmo: And these people look down their noses at Islam?
UrukHaiGuyz: Stone Meadow: PunGent: Looks like California isn't as godless/atheist as the fundies say...The Bible Belt has NUTHIN! on the Inland Empire of California.I think it's cause the Christians here already are the dominant culture, as opposed to feeling surrounded by oppressive heathens, so they dial back the reactionary sh*t./Texas//Buckle of the Bible Belt
pippi longstocking: People are really dog shiat stupid. I mean, if chimps could build things, it wouldn't be any different.
mikefinch: pippi longstocking: People are really dog shiat stupid. I mean, if chimps could build things, it wouldn't be any different.From a strictly evolutionary and reproductive view one might suggest that religion has lots of benefits and few downsides.It provides an altruistic community for you to live in and has certain reproductive bonuses. Whats the biological downside to being religious? There aren't many.I would throw it out there that being religious for most of human history was a huge benefit.\On a much cooler note while i was writing this a lynx the size of a German Shepard just walked through my yard... Wholy crap this cat is huge.
RatOmeter: Walker: I find myself agreeing with Pat Robertson.....and this scares me.I've seen signs that Robertson has a not insignificant streak of rationality, but that he's a product of his time and environment. He also shows some signs of senility, but hey. He's gettin' old.
RatOmeter: UrukHaiGuyz:/Texas//Buckle of the Bible BeltI guess that makes Oklahoma overhanging belly flab? Then what is Kansas?
stuffy: And when these darling little snowflakes grow up and try to get into a real school/job that wants nothing to do with there screwed up view of the world. Then guess whose
WhoGAS: I still don't get why this is such an important topic for "Christians". Nowhere did Jesus ever care about creation and all this BS. He cared about teaching people love, tolerance, understanding, helping the less fortunate (etc) and spreading his teachings.Why can't they spend all the energy on what their "Jesus" told them, commanded, directed them to do instead of focusing on worthless matters that even "Jesus" would hang his head in the most massive face-palm ever?I'm so glad I'm not constrained by fairy tales anymore (I used to preach) and I can actually focus on love, tolerance, understanding, helping the less fortunate, etc. But not as "his" teachings, but as a way for the betterment of humanity itself./Off soapbox.
soporific: For some, it's fear of losing authority.
Lady Indica: It's an important topic for some christians because for fundies the lynchpin is 'everything in the bible is absolutely true' and if it's not, it's all false.
twoody: There is no such thing as bad publicity. Honest to goodness truth.
Begoggle: Aren't all children required to go to school? Like actual school, with a certain defined curriculum?For example, I'm pretty sure in my state, all children are required to take X years of English classes that meet a certain standard, X science classes that are actual science, etc.Even religious schools and home schooling have to meet some standards.
