Also, we should be cognizant of the fact that Christ brings us together far more greater than any food or material possession ever could, and that we need to not only place him at the center of our lives but that we need to convince others to do so as well.

Hey kids, you want food or Christ?

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...


That's a lot of words to say "We're whiny idiots who can't accept people different than us and need to blame every social problem on them".

mark12A: I am referring to the value system based on the Old and New Testaments of the Bible


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."

mark12A: Do those moderate Judeo-Christian values include shipping the middle class jobs overseas? You know, since that seems to be the real reason that it's withering away as opposed to just blaming "hipsters".

Those values do not include shipping jobs overseas. Those values DO include Patriotism, which influenced American business leaders of past generations to care about their country and society and not do things that hurt the country.

But, since the 60's Patriotism is totes uncool, man, which makes it easier to live with yourself when you're an executive making decisions to close down American factories and ship the equipment overseas just so they can get a nice little bump in their stock price.

See how that works?


Are you implying the CEO's of Fortune 500 companies are hipsters? I hope I'm being trolled, because that's a level of stupid I'm having difficulty wrapping my mind around.

mark12A: 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.


Shut up, Jesus Christ. None of what you say is accurate. There are so many wrongs here I'm not even going to bother. Pick up a world history book, one not written by the Texas Board of Education.

You're a troll but I know people actually think this kind of bullshiat. And it makes me nauseous.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Russ1642: Why is it that religious people are so fond of getting pissed off for no reason at all?


They've based their entire lives on their religion. If they have a reason to question the tenets of their faith or if they have to acknowledge that there is a perfectly acceptable way of living that has nothing to do with their religion (as their religion tells them that through this faith is the only way to live) then it puts their entire life into chaos. Their life may be based on something false or flawed. They can't handle it. So they go on the attack. The best defense is a good offense, as some say.

skozlaw: skozlaw: gja: Not making comment on the repression thing, just pointing out your data is crap.

The original chart the meme is based on made it clear that it's referencing the U.S. population. The data is fine, it's the labeling that's crap.

Actuality, scratch that, the original joke doesn't make that clear either. But that's why the numbers are like that, it's the U.S. population, not world.

Which makes sense since it's a joke about how U.S. Christians spend so much time complaining about the most inane crap as if they're so terribly put upon any time anybody dares to not kowtow to them.

Send these jackasses off to Egypt or Sudan for awhile and let's see what they think of real oppression against Christians.


Send them wherever. They are only pretending to be Christian anyway. All they really are is hateful dirtbags.
