It seems like you can’t get anywhere on word press when it comes to christian Ideas. Even when you start of being nice, If you have a unique position on anything about faith, you get attacked by a pack of rabid dogs. mind you this only happens when you speak the truth, and spread love and speak out against hate and lies as Jesus once did while on earth.
one thing I hear over again, is how Jesus talked so much about hell. Well , not really . Now If you sit there and count how many times the word hell occurs in the gospels, while discounting the context in which the word is used, you would think so. You would also have to ignore the fact that the different gospels often repeat the same quotes, wich makes it the same speech, jus a different gospel. Then if you come up with your own magical way of interpreting things in wich turns everything that Jesus talks about into a speech about hell. Jesus spoke more of how to treat each other, how to make earth a paradise and how to make it into the Kingdom of heaven. I even had some Jackass even say that ” Jesus talked about itamore times than heaven, and even made a lot of references to hell”. First of all that isn’t true even if you do all the things that I mentioned, and second, Making references to something is talking about it.
why do christians spend so much time on how to stay out of hell, and to little time on how to get into the kingdom of heaven. If you truly grasp the teachings of christ, you would realize that staying out of hell doesn’t give you an automatic ticket to heaven. There is a place called Sheol by the Hebrews, that is where souls that don’t belong in the other 2 places go. A lot of So called christians, are so judgmental (about everyone but themselves). If you point out to these people that being Judgmental, is against the teachings of jesus. and then repeat what Jesus said on the subject, they find away to turn it around on you. I always get “you Just pick and choose what you want from the bible” when they obviously do the same thing and more frequently. I my self do pick and choose from the bible. you can do that since the bible is many books and Just a select few of a much larger body of writings, which were rejected by the Catholic church. It was the Church that decided which books to put in the bible. Even if this wasnt the case I would pick and choose, there are some really evil teachings in the Bible. the gospels are pretty much all I pay attention to in the Bible cannon. I refuse to follow parts of the old testament where it calls to destroy all non believers. That is evil. You have to have an analytical mind when it comes to religious doctrine. If you don’t separate the good from the bad,well, you get the current state of the world.

When I speak of the new Evangelical movement I am not talking about something brand new. I am talking about a dangerous theology that began with people Like Oral Roberts, and was brought to the mainstream by people such as Pat Robertson. It has imbedded itself in various denominations. It is a politically Conservative oriented movement and is poisoning the minds of americans as well as in north african countries. One famous person who subscribes to this belief system is former president George W Bush. Groups like the Christian coalition and the American Family Association. It is a theology that embraces Homophobia, Islamiphobia and censorship. They claim that the constitution does not ban separation of church and state and that their religious beliefs should be the basis of American politics. They also believe that it is their duty to bring about the apocalypse.
There was a book I looked at , at my local walmart(which is a Christian coalition owned store) , that adhered to this theology. It was saying that such things as Illness and poverty, were not caused by things like microorganisms and greedy corporations, but curses from the devil. Talk about being out of sync with the 21st Century, or the 18th century for that matter. It went on to talk about things that were evil and brought about such curses. It included such things as sexual fantasies and masturbation, and not following the Government. So god wants us to grow up to be sexually frustrated psychos who blindly follow the government. Also it listed things that were evil teachings, Besides Just the Usual christian thing of naming all non-christian religions, It also listed Meditation and martial arts. Last thing we want is for our children to have is a balanced mind, discipline and the ability to defend themselves. I could list all the weird and twisted beliefs of the new evangelism, but that would probably take an entire book.

I can’t stand frickin right-wing assholes who think that order for us to be free(we meaning those with power)The rich have to screw the poor with no vaseline, and the poor need to shut up bend over ant take one for the team. What’s worse are the poor people who are kissing ass to their rich slave masters. I always find it funny when all these right-winger are so far right , that they think the media is too liberal. the only liberal media is the Internet. If the government get’s their way, the internet will be as controlled as the rest of the media, by Pseudo-religious fascist republican overlords. Why are people so brainwashed? May be they need to stop watching TV and listening to talk radio and start reading. By reading, I mean something educational that is based on facts, and not written raving mad conspiracy nut, or Christian coalition lackey.
Another example of Idiocracy that makes me angry are So called religious people who do nothing but pervert the teachings of their true spiritual teachers. People who use Spiritual teachings, not to enlighten the world and bring peace, but to do evil, and spread hatred. using the spiritual as a platform, for ignorance to stand on. Nothing is worse than followers of a man who said ” The truth will set you free” encouraging people to be Ignorant, and looking down on people who are truly learned. a lot of science is also founded on ignorance, because to get a bigger view on reality , scientists would have to throw away the taboo’s that get in the way of the field’s ability to bring human Knowledge forward.
The truth is this. most People don’t want to Know the truth, because it is more convenient to stay Ignorant. To seek the truth is difficult, especially when you find it.

Ever since I was a child, I realized people were idiots. But int the past ten years the IQ of the United states has taken a plumet. I rember when I could relax knowing that Rush Limbaugh was the dumbest right winger in the media. Now we have mental midgets like Bill O’riely and Glen Beck. But, that’s not all there are entire “news” networks populated with i.diots. Peolpe with there stupid “Comunists are taking over the country” conspirracy theories. It’s like a flash back from the 1950s and the Mccarthy hearings. Sorry to tell you this Glenn, but the country has already been taken over by Fascist morons. Acording to Glen beck the Comunists are co conspiring with the “Islamo-fascists”.
This kind of rubbish is spreading like wild fire. Idiotic theories as Obama being a a Muslim Socialist/comunist who was born in Kenya. What? First of all, republican’s do not realize that comunism and socialism are two different things. Second of all there are countries that thrive under socialism, Evil nations such as Switzerland and The netherlands. Wach out, the Swiss are going to take over the world. thirdly, WTF!!!!
No form of media is safe from these Blubbering Idiots. Blogging has also Become Moronpublican territory.One of these Idiots in particular Is Michael Stollaire, who’s entire blog here on word press is deticated to the Idea that the Evil comunist democrates are leading the country in to ruin. Exactly how are they doing that Michael, by cleaning up the messes that republicans have made? Any one who doesn’t make the Rich richer and the poor porrer, is a communist in the eyes of Republicans. The thing is , I would take communism over Fascist corporate bullshit any day. Why don’t You guys just be Honest why you dont like Obama, he’s Black, and he puts limits on your evil ass corporations.
Please do me a favor and grow a brain.

In light of the domino effect of revolution in the middle east and North Africa I find myself excited. To see People who have been terified of their leaderd finally standing up againgt them. This Is truly awesome, Democracy in the middle east becoming a reality, and not just some excuse for American wars. It is sad that our government was at first opposed to the over throw of the egyptian leader. Finally proof that our country is more interested in having Dictators in the middle east that do our bidding, than having democracy in the middle east. There we have it , The US government cares more about thier own agenda then Democracy. I was also disgusted When I read the comments on yahoo news on the articles of the protests in the middle east. So many americans who are the first to use the term freedom when defending American wars, saying how wrong it is for those people to want to be free. Such hipocracy. this is why our own government walks all over us. Americans love to talk about freedom, yet they badmouth anyone who exercises it or, seeks it. the truth is , Americans are afraid of true freedom, they just like the Idea of freedom. Yahoo is also being used as a forum for anti-muslim hatred, even though this has nothing to do with religion. I have become ashamed of my fellow americans. when are we going to practice what e preach?
Unlike some of my Fellow citizend, I admire these people who are seeking freedom. The Lybian’s are the ones I admire the most though. They knew that Kadafhi would killed them if they spoke out against him, yet they didnt let that stop them. even after at least 200 protesters were murdered by police and military, they still arent backing down. How can you not respect that? These people would rather die free, than to live with ouut freedom. This kind of Ideology is the foundation on which our country was built on. Unfortunately, our country has degeerated into a nation of brainwashed yes men. when did we become so weak. we are no longer Citizens, we are consumers, mindless drones.
any one who doesn’t stand up for freedom doesnt have the right to exist.
give me liberty or give me death.
