BojanglesPaladin: skullkrusher: The only Protestants we had were of the blue blood variety.

We call those Episcopalians.


If they are of a certain blue blood variety, they call themselves, "Episcopalian-but-really-that's-just-the-American-word-for-Anglican-bu t-my-family-fought-in-the-revolution-so-we-can't-call-ourselves-that-e ven-though-I-am-related-to-Diana-Spencer-on-my-mother's-side-and-peopl e-incorrectly-called-her-Princess-Diana-but-really-it-should-be-Prince ss-Charles-even-though-our-ancestors-have-more-right-to-the-throne-tha n-those-German-upstarts."

Oh, that is just so sad. You could have kept some dignity and just walked away.

/Seriously, you are the one calling for Christians to police each other. I TOLD you it was a dumb position to take, don't get all mad at me just because you finally realized it.

So Christians shouldn't be held to the same standards Conservatives hold Muslims to when it comes to the moderates decrying the extremists?


Do not use contemporary, American "conservatives" as a guide for what standards should be. But I think you already know that.

That's weird. I just asked the same question in reverse! Should Muslims be held to the same standards Farkers here are holding Christians to when it comes to the moderates decrying the extremists?

I'm surprised you didn't see that.

But as I often and frequently say, I urge anyone who doesn't want to read my posts to use the Ignore function. I won't be offended, and it's probably best for everyone.

So, now you don't know what a straw man is?

Show me where I said Christians should "police" each other.

Show me where I said Christiansshould be trying to "shut down" versions of Christianity they disagree with.

Show me where I said Christians have an "obligation" to "squelch another group who thinks differently."

You keep taking what's ACTUALLY said and mischaracterizing it, twisting it into a cartoonish extreme, turning it into a more easily-refuted... wait for it... straw man. You're not arguing against my position. You're arguing against what you want my position to be.


"To 'attack a straw man' is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and to refute it, without ever having actually refuted the original position."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man

What I have said is that if Christians don't want the "Conservative Christian" teabagger crowd setting the tone for Christianity, then they need to speak up and take issue when those are spouting their bullshiat.

If-then... It's a conditional statement.

If they're okay with Rush Limbaugh defining Christianity, then more power to them. But, if that's the case, then they don't really have much justification for whining about how other people perceive Christianity.

----

tl;dr version... If you're not going to criticize those people when they spew their bullshiat, that's you're right. But, don't whine at me when I do.

meat0918: More evidence in the "American's do not worship the God of the New Testament" column.


Historically, that god's been a completely different god every couple centuries to account for social shifts.  The hippie do-gooder interpretation of Jesus is no less fabricated than the Jesus who wants to be rich, and actually slightly more recent (rich-loving Jesus = 1940s, poor-loving Jesus = 1960s).

If you're wanting to go "original intent" on the new testament, you're not going to get much out of it in terms of economic morality, because none of the social or large-scale economic, political, or social systems in use today were so much as a gleam in a philosopher's eye at the time.

I mean, you can back off so far that you basically ignore every single detail of the mythology that exists and go with "don't be a dick", but that's still an individual instruction and not an economic or policy instruction.

// I know context isn't everything, but the context in which the bible was written was a society in which being a slave was considered a legit career path worthy of respect, and was actually usually a pretty good deal for the slave.  That kind of highlights how absurdly alien most of the lessons are in modern context.

Because they're told to.

They're authoritarians... followers and leaders. That's why they display an incredibly inordinate amount of angst about how high or low other people wear their pants. Conform... fit in... adhere to expectations.

They are expected to eschew compassion and so they do.

Well, I guess we should be fair.  It only seems to be the entirety of the conservative public face that is doing their damnedest to show that they lack compassion.  Of course, like a tree falling in the woods, there are certainly compassionate conservatives that we don't hear from.  They exist, it's just that their, apparently intentional, public image presents an incredible lack of empathy, on a sociopathic level.  If they weren't proving it every single day, I wouldn't believe it, but you are in serious denial if you don't see how massively dysfunctional the conservative, or should I say "conservative", movement is.

Every day you see a "conservative" saying something unthinking, uncaring, stupid or insensitive. There are, however, literally hundreds of millions of us. You hear from a tiny fraction of shiatbricks with bully pulpits or stupid enough to say or do something that spreads on the web.

Of course, we're not talking about this "public face" but rather the sweeping statement made by Vinnie and then psychoanalyzed by misfit. You see, conservatives are authoritarians and therefore stuff and furthermore can I have
my Internet hi fives now? I've been trying so very hard to say something that'll appeal to the circle jerk.

With a subtitle transcribing loosely as "how black people are going to kill a bunch of white people any day now."  But don't you dare call them racist.

They already ARE! Did you MISS the knockout game thread or something?! It's LITERALLY the biggest threat to White America since emancipation!!!

I missed the racist ad and I'm scared of going back to crazy land. Could someone please post a pic?


I got nothing on that, I just remember the "knockout game" thread that was here a bit back. Holy HELL, what a thread.

skullkrusher: Every day you see a "conservative" saying something unthinking, uncaring, stupid or insensitive. There are, however, literally hundreds of millions of us. You hear from a tiny fraction of shiatbricks with bully pulpits or stupid enough to say or do something that spreads on the web.

Of course, we're not talking about this "public face" but rather the sweeping statement made by Vinnie and then psychoanalyzed by misfit. You see, conservatives are authoritarians and therefore stuff and furthermore can I have
my Internet hi fives now? I've been trying so very hard to say something that'll appeal to the circle jerk.

Look, fine... I'll be serious for a minute.

Snap was just cut by $5 billion dollars during a time in which those on the bottom end of our society are hurting about as bad as they ever have, and conservatives support it by about 70%. The roughly 30% who don't will likely continue to support the movement and party that allowed it to happen and encourages shredding the safety net even more.

You can spare me all the crap about "not all conservatives hate compassion" because at the end of the day, in the practical world, when you're taking food money out of the hands of the very poorest among us, it's a distinction without a farking difference whether or not someone "hates" compassion, or is simply indifferent, or even if they actually take the time to pay lip service to compassion.

What farking good does it do to be compassionate if you don't act on it?

What farking difference does it make to be compassionate if you endorse the very same policies that the ugly, angry, dollar-bill throwing mob cheers on?

So yeah, I talk shiat about conservatives. But not because I want internet high fives. Not because I want to take part in a liberal circle-jerk. I do it because I farking hate them. Because they're rotten dicks who support atrocious and mean-spirited policies. You can try to attach a bunch of high-minded economic philosophy to WHY they support those policies... but I'm tired of playing the let's be polite and agree to disagree game when it gets to the point that we're talking about whether or not children should be allowed to go hungry.

technicolor-misfit: BojanglesPaladin: technicolor-misfit: straw men, straw men

Oh, that is just so sad. You could have kept some dignity and just walked away.

/Seriously, you are the one calling for Christians to police each other. I TOLD you it was a dumb position to take, don't get all mad at me just because you finally realized it.


So, now you don't know what a straw man is?

Show me where I said Christians should "police" each other.

Show me where I said Christiansshould be trying to "shut down" versions of Christianity they disagree with.

Show me where I said Christians have an "obligation" to "squelch another group who thinks differently."

You keep taking what's ACTUALLY said and mischaracterizing it, twisting it into a cartoonish extreme, turning it into a more easily-refuted... wait for it... straw man. You're not arguing against my position. You're arguing against what you want my position to be.


Sooner or later, a consensus opinion. Now you at least know to save your breath with him in future threads, right?

SixPaperJoint: MrBallou: I've been hearing about this "Pope is a Marxist" thing, so I decided to make an exception to my no-WND click rule, just to catch up on exactly what they're saying.

Only got through a few paragraphs before everything went gray. Now my head hurts, my vision is blurred and I can't feel my feet. Please. Someone call a doctor.

Alright, MrBallou, just listen. Everything is going to be fine. You're very over derped right now. You will probably be that way for about five more hours. Try taking some vitamin B complex, vitamin C complex.. if you have a beer, go ahead and drink it...

Just remember you're a living organism on this planet, and you're very safe. You've just taken a heavy derping. Relax, stay inside and listen to some music. Okay? Do you have any Allman Brothers?


For the record, that was my favorite SNL skit of all time.

This is the political structure that declared that witches were real and justified torture?  I'll leap right on caring what they think.

Hilariously, if you asked a smart, but politically uninformed person, they would think you were talking about relatively ancient history in this country and not something from within the last decade, to be sure.
