iq_in_binary: I'm sorry, are we throwing you farkers to lions for entertainment again? When did I miss that?Oh we're not? Shut the fark up.
doyner: For those of you who don't want to click on the link, here it is in all its glory:"Herpy-derpy-doo."You're welcome.
Lorelle: It's nothing but "WAAAAH! How dare others tell us that we can't shove our religion down everyone's throats!"
abb3w: The bible-reading court case and the national park baptisms are both interesting. However, the former seems less a case of "Christian persecution" than "cops persecute everyone"; and mass baptisms may well trigger some threshold of "number of people gathered", which would be a neutral and generally applicable rule which applies to religion and non-religion alike.The others I'd heard more about; and doyner's "Herpy-derpy-doo." seems a fair summary of his descriptions, from what I recollect.
Gordon Bennett: Lorelle: It's nothing but "WAAAAH! How dare others tell us that we can't shove our religion down everyone's throats!"Well, half of it is pure paranoia "If it was Muslims they wouldn't be held accountable for their activities they way Christians are!" and the other half is the usual twaddle from a bigot outraged to not be allowed to oppress others in the name of Jesus.
webron: Thank god there is nothing in the bible that forbids lying.
urbangirl: Local elected officials are responding by doubling down on city council meeting prayers and their attorneys are backing them up.
factoryconnection: urbangirl: Local elected officials are responding by doubling down on city council meeting prayers and their attorneys are backing them up.Everyone likes a theocracy when it is their particular brand in charge.
SoupGuru: Don't get me started on how awful it is to be a white male in this country. You have no idea the kinds of things I'm expected to put up with. I'm certainly not coddled like those knee-grows and messicans. It's a burden.
clancifer: How everyone else sees their plight:
FourDirections: I consider myself a Christian. I'll let others take from their religions (Christian or otherwise) what they will, but here's what it means to me: Be good. Be honest. Be kind. Help those in need. Do the right thing when it's difficult. Do what needs to be done because it's the right thing, not because it's the easy thing. Do not judge others, but strive constantly to follow the example that Christ showed: kindness and mercy, charity and humility.
