Watching the news today is saddening. What devastation in Oklahoma. Wow. Then I hear the nonsensical ramblings from the reporters, witnesses and survivors & I want to turn my brain off until it cools down.
You know, it's funny how people react and what words they use to describe a natural occurrence - how what lots of people would consider "an act of god", suddenly transforms into "Mother Nature". (Note how that shifts the blame from their deity.)
The same people that were spared by going underground or lying in a bath tub while a 200 mph freight train passed overhead are the same people that refuse to acknowledge that the god that they believe in caused the storm in the first place. They babble about "miracles" and go on and on about how their prayers were answered. What about the dead, the wounded and those that lost everything they owned? Did they not "pray" correctly? Were they not "worthy of a miracle"? The only difference between those that escaped with their lives and limbs and those that didn't is coincidence. Yet those that survived are actually fucking arrogant enough to flaunt their "specialness" in everyone else's faces. Why not just get up on your soapbox and proclaim to the world that you are "worthy" in the eyes of your god and the children and others that died were not? Because that is what you are telling me.
Then the vigils will commence nation-wide tonight - candles and prayer that will accomplish absolutely nothing to actually helping out. Unless you are donating time, money, blood - something - you are wasting your time and showing how fucking arrogant some of you christians can really be. Think about it, in lieu of donating to Red Cross, you are going to light candles, hold hands, sing and mumble to yourself. Yet, in your twisted reality - that is somehow helping! Are you fucking kidding me? Is that not the very epitome of hypocrisy?

US is not and never has been a "christian" nation. It was never
intended to be, either. The Founding Fathers were mostly Deists. They
may have believed in "a" god, but they purposely left out references to
any particular deity within the founding documents.
churches were originally were not taxed because they were "charitable
organizations" and they were relatively small, local operations. When
this was decided 236 years ago, nobody had envisioned a world with
instant global communication; nobody could have foreseen the role that
religion would eventually take in American politics; nobody could have
predicted the power that the vatican wields today.
One of the
requirements for an organization receiving a tax-exempt status is "it
may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial
part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign
activity for or against political candidates." (irs.gov)
is pretty plain language, easy to read, easy to understand. This
requirement is ignored by the church and it is not enforced by the IRS.
Why? Why does the church not have to follow the same laws that the rest
of us do? The church has been openly politicking from the pulpit for
decades. Yet the IRS does nothing about it. All they would have to do is
strip the tax exempt status from ONE church and the practice would
stop. Frankly, I don't see how we can move forward as a strong economic
nation without taxing (at the very least) church property and
It's not to the point to say that the church
"won't miss it", the point is that it is well past the time for the
church to pay it's share of taxes. Think about it: the church uses the
same fire, police and ambulance services that you do; the church uses
the same utilities in their buildings as you do; the church uses the
same mail delivery system as you do. Your wages are taxed to help pay
for all of those services. How much does the church contribute to the
tax rolls? NOTHING. You pay for the church to use the same services that
you do. It doesn't matter if you are religious or not - forcing working
people to pay the share for a multi-billion dollar enterprise is wrong.
"Non-church groups receiving tax exemptions must annually file a
detailed 990 statement itemizing where the money has gone. The IRS
automatically waives the 990 requirement for churches."
(taxthechurches.org) What is the IRS afraid of? I'm sure lots of you
have been audited or forced to make payment arrangements because you owe
the Federal Government money. They do not hesitate to get what is owed,
and they generously add on a penalty for paying late. Not only does the
church get a pass from filing this statement, they do not even file a
tax return! Every other tax-exempt organization in the country does, but
not the church.
You say you want less taxes? Well, here is the
answer to your prayers. How can anyone, but the church, not agree with
taxing the church it's fair share?

Frothy, The Blowman 1-23-2012 by John E. Murray, III
Frothy, The Blowman
Frothy, the Blowman, likes to swallow dick juice whole.
With a Felcher Straw and a Christian nose, and 2 guyz
That call him "Ho"!
Frothy, The Blowman, is a fairy tale, they say.He could go so low, make his children know,
What his dead son didn't weigh.
There must have been some priest-rape in that
White-Collar that they found,
For when they gave the Blowman head, he began to dance around!
Oh, Frothy, The Blowman, likes his jesus more than pee;
And the children say he could be so gay, just to swallow you and me.
Rumpety Rump Rump, Rumpety Rump Rump,
Frothy drinks his load!
Rumpety Rump Rump, Rumpety Rump Rump
Frothy loves his choad!
Frothy, The Blowman, couldn't say that he was gay,
So he said, "Let's suck before we fuck, 'cause my wife may cum this way!"
Down to the pillage, with a broomstick in his hand, fucking here and fucking there,He don't care he's queer, screaming, "Stick it in my can!"
He pulled the altar boy's pants down and licked the lollipop; then froze a moment,
When he heard the cops yell, "Fucking stop!"
For Frothy, The Blowman, had to hide all of his gay, but he beat his dick, saying, "Ole Saint Nick,
would have liked my troubled way!"

I, on the other hand, post many responses to the articles and news briefs that I find interesting. Am I posting stuff that nobody cares about? Am I being too blunt for people's tastes? I would love some feedback. It's not about me looking for attention, I honestly wonder what my friends think.
I'm just tired of wasting my time. If nobody gives a shit, I will drop FB and cut out the stress that it sometimes causes me. I did fine before I found it, I like the friends that I have made. When folks admit that they are non-believers online and join a group or "friend" like people: aren't they looking for someone to converse with? Or at the very least, they want to read and comment on similar beliefs?
Give me a heads up if I need one, I'm just wondering.

I get it. My god has a bigger dick than your god. Okay. Can you zealots shut the fuck up now?
I don't remember the last time a bunch of angry jews flew a plane into the Pentagon. I can't remember the last time a bunch of pissed of christians killed 6 million people - oh wait, the Holocaust.....never mind. (By the way - Hitler was NOT an atheist). When was the last time you heard of Buddhists killing people for the hell of it?
The 'moderate' muslims may seem like a peaceful folk. The 'extremists' seem awful. Truth be told, the moderates BELIEVE what the extremists do, they just have no zealotry or impetus yet. When the 'moderates' (who believe the Koran like the extremists) gain their understanding about the imminent death of heretics leading to the holy land, THEY TOO will want us dead. Just because they are not radical now, does not mean they will not become that way in the near future.
The same goes for the fundamentalist christians. They would like nothing better than to see the jews (Israel) defeat the palestinians and rebuild the 'temple on the mount'! That would enable the second coming of christ.
First of all, there may have been a jew prophet named jesus. There may have been some good deeds that he informed his penniless audience about. He never performed miracles, was not of a 'virgin-birth' and did not rise from the dead. Second: there is NO proof where he was from, where he was born, whether he was gay, whether he married a whore - or anything else that is conclusive proof.
I think that if there was a prophet named Jesus, he meant well. If not, then he was a con artist. It's that simple. Either Jesus was giving advice - like JACK VAN IMPE - or he was lying in order to make rent money.
If he could fish so good, why did he need to walk on water? Why did he have only two fish to feed the masses?
If he was all powerful, why did he not use the Jedi-Mind-Trick on Pontius?
You see, it's all BULLSHIT, always has been, always will be. Plain and simple.
