mark12A: Judeo-Christian


You mean "Christian".  Including "Judeo" in your screed is an attempt to look slightly less like a reactionary bigot than you already do, but your beliefs have nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with Judaism in any way and you know absolutely nothing about Judaism.

Just say "Christian"  It's what you mean.  Have the balls to own your beliefs without being wishy washy and having to do your little "inclusive" dance.

Sin_City_Superhero: foxy_canuck: Uh, the Catholic Church teaches that if you don't question the tenets of your faith you don't legitimately own it. All Catholics are called to question and challenge.

Yeah, right. And when you do question the tenants of Catholicism, you are met with "You just have to have faith." That's not a real answer, but it's the best you'll get.


When something good happens:  Praise to the Lord for bringing us that blessing.
When something bad happens: God works in "mysterious" ways.

Yeah...I just don't get it. Someone survives a horrific car accident and they praise Jesus for letting them survive, instead of wondering why God let them get in a wreck in the first place.

Christmas carols are stupid. Every body knows this, including the malevolent Christians who spend the holiday season whining and trying to spoil Christmas for everybody because only they have the true Christmas Spirit of meanness and hatred.

Do you even know what half the lyrics mean?

I've seen whole articles on the word "wassail". They annoy me.

Do you don your gay apparel? No you don't you homophobic twit, because that would be gay.

Do you want figgy pudding? Do you have a recipe for figgy pudding? Yah, boo! Don't give me any figgy pudding. Figgy pudding sucks. I'll take the cash instead, thank you.

What's a Yule log? It sounds Swedish? Yule love our logs, yah. Bork, bork, bork, bork, bork! And now we make the chocolate moose. Be careful it does not bite your sister.

And as if the traditional Christmas carols that don't mean anything any more aren't bad enough, everybody insists on playing the ten worst Christmas carols of the 1940s over and over again until you want to bite some one. It's a good thing I don't drive a car or else I would stomp on the gas pedal every time I hear "Grandma got runover by a reindeer". I'll give granny a taste of my tires if I catch her outside of the mall.

I say we should be allowed to punch the nearest Christian whenever one of these songs plays, especially "Having a Wonderful Christmas Time". That's perhaps the worst of them all. You could be charged with torture by the International Court Of Justice for playing that at Christians, let alone Jihadists.

enderthexenocide: honest question:  has anyone here ever actually gone caroling or had other people caroling at their house?  in my entire life i have never seen someone actually go caroling.  i can't believe anyone does this.


I, for one, love Christmas and Christmas Carols.  I realize this isn't cool or hip to admit to the jaded youth of today, but in fact my husband has to limit my Christmas music playing in the house.  I'm not allowed to get the music out until November 15th.

As a kid my family and some other families at church used to go caroling a lot, at group homes or assisted living facilities.  And in high school my friends and I went caroling in the neighborhood just for fun.  But I come from a musically inclined background so it's fun for us.

mark12A: Why is it that religious people are so fond of getting pissed off for no reason at all?

Because we *had* a rather nice, polite society with a strong middle class, civilized public behavior and thought the future was going to be even better. After almost a generation of making war against the moderate Judeo-Christian culture that enabled that nice state of affairs, we're now watching the middle class wither away, factionalism on the rise, predatory societal behavior spreading as we slide downward to a dystopian  Blade Runner future...all because traditional values are too corny for today's hipsters. The legacy of generations of western civilization's improvements to the state of mankind are being pissed away by today's mass media driven corrosive culture. Enjoy your new Dark Ages...

Oh holy shiat. Even trolling, saying that white Christian people are responsible for giving civil rights to black people is just over the top farktarded

All across Eurasia and Asia, in non Judeo-Christian cultures, the dominant cultures had ruthlessly exterminated or chased out minorities. Numerous distinct peoples were completely wiped out in what is now present day eastern Europe and Russia. When that kind of thing was attempted in Judeo-Christian societies like Germany and South Africa, it was opposed and stopped by other Judeo-Christian societies.

You can't name a non Judeo-Christian society that has equal rights for minorities. They're either mono-ethnic or they brutally suppress their minorities. Judeo-Christian societies at least try to fix the problems, and many have succeeded. Because of the tolerance values taught in Judeo-Christian value systems.

I think that the ridiculousness he's referring to is the fact that these minorities wouldn't need white people coming to their aid if other white people weren't oppressing them. When white people enslaved black people, and then other white people freed them, it's hard to give any credit to the white race, since they wouldn't have been needed had they not caused the problem in the first place.

I am referring to the value system based on the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. As in the Ten Commandments, and associated moral codes.

The Ten Commandments are really the distilled experience of early human societies finding out by trial and error which rules worked in running a successful tribe. The "from God" stuff was just marketing. But modern technological man thinks he can flout proven successful moral codes because of dual core processors or something.....

No.. Just, no!

I suppose it might be in how one defines "minority".  Is the LGBTG (is that the right alphabet soup, I get confused) community NOT a minority today?  How are they NOT being discriminated against? Or what of the trend where, now that more brown people are coming in and reproducing and making the white folk the 'minority'? Or if we make being gay or believing anything different than YOU ok, then YOU will be the minority.  I think that's what people are truly afraid of here...

The fact is that, in America, the conservatives are so darned AFRAID of anything that is 'other', anything that is different from them, that they are DEMANDING we become - if not mono ethnic  - at least of an identical belief system.  Its the same thing.

No you're not.  You're referring to your utopian Leave It To Beaver society that never really existed in which blacks knew their place, gay people were invisible, church rules were laws and Jews were (like they are in today's Republican party) begrudgingly tolerated at best.

You long for a "Christian nation" but you don't have the balls to actually say it so you water it down with "Judeo-Christian".  If you're looking at it purely from a religious philosophical perspective as you claim you really should make it a "Judeo-Islamo-Christian" perspective since all three religions spring from the same well.  You won't do that because you're not really THAT inclusive are ya?  Of course not.

This is old nonsense. You're not at all the first person to play this pathetic little linguistic game and I'm certainly not the first Jew to call out such bigotry and insist "Not in MY name, buddy. This is all you and Republican Jesus talking."

As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace.  If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor.  But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town.  When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town.   But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder.  You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

I come from a large family, all musicians, most of them professional (or professional-calibre) singers.  When we all lived close to one another, we had a tradition on Christmas Eve: gather around the piano around 5 PM, run through some favorite carols, not that we needed to *rehearse* or anything, we'd been doing these charts since we were babies (the good stuff from the 1940 Episcopal Hymnal, none of this modern Rudolph and Pa-rum-pa-pa-pum shiat) then dash off to the local hospital, where we'd sing in the wards for a hour or so.  The pediatric and geriatric wards were always especially grateful.

Then we'd head downtown and hit the bars.  We'd walk in, crack open the Hymnals, and knock out a couple numbers in that solid four-part harmony, and man the drinks would start flowing.  We'd hit every one of them, some of them twice, never once paid for a drink in all those years.

So, yeah, I've done it.  And I've done it *right*.

It is as relevant as the original posters chart. Just more inclusive and represents the world. SCS never said what his graph represented.
Since I saw it was not really indicative of anything even close to world numbers I presented that data, which is quite well vetted.
His chart, absent of reference point, was misleading.

Agent Smiths Laugh: MOST Hymnals are also stupid, boring, and poorly written/arranged.

FTFY

The 1940 Episcopal Hymnal assumed an educated, musically-literate congregation.  It contained works by Holst, Vaughn Williams, Healy Willan, literally dozens of world-class composers.  It was excellent in content, artistry, and an invaluable training tool.  Every bit of it fully harmonized, none of this "just show the melody, not even the accompaniment, leave that for the organist's edition" BS, either.

The current edition is a pale shadow of what it once was, more's the pity.

Friend of mine went caroling with his daughter this year. Most people pretended to not be home. One gentleman listened to them politely and thanked them for the "lovely singing", then turned to my friend (his neighbor) and semi-whispered, "You know I'm Jewish, right?"
