What Does God Do to Gays? Part II

If God is Who many of the cynically delusional in religion claim Him to be, then God has LOTS of ideas as to how to mistreat gays, right?

According to some of those who would assert that the Holy Bible is absolutely true God is responsible for everything that happens. Everything. Blessings, punishments...EVERYTHING. Nothing happens without God's say so since everything is a part of His fantabulous plan, which of course was formed and approved by God's planning committee consisting of He, Him, and Himself. ANY and ALL punishment for all things 'sinful' are by God's supposed divine Will. It all boils down to this: If someone is punished for their sins...well, that is simply how it is going to be. It doesn't matter how it was done or who it was by, or whether or not it was something terrible and crappy and totally fucked up since God purposely allowed it to happen in order to punish them for their wicked ways. I see.

Sooo...I was thinking that the clips from the first part of this particular discussion were bad enough, right? Well, apparently God has lots of ideas as to how to mistreat gays. Notice that God does not say specifically to do this or that, but He sure as fuck does not stop any of His folks or ANYONE for that matter (or Himself) from some of the terrible things done to gays whilst in fits of intense homophobic passions, does He? And, yes, it must be noted that all Christians are not homophobic and do not all hurt gays, and likewise not all homophobic people are Christian and not all homophobic people hurt gays in some form or other. Just gotta put that out there to be fair.

This man was murdered because he was gay. There are people who celebrated his death as judgment by God for being gay. Sickening. This human being was murdered because of his sexual preference. How is this punishment more important to God than killing those who kill other people, or who rape other people, or who commit adultery and other crimes? I thought it says in the Bible that all fall short of the glory of God? If that is the case...

How do you think this same East Indian politician would feel if the United States booted out all of the East Indian people who are here in the states and who are not Christian and who insist on practicing their cultural practices here? That would be immensely offensive to the people and their country and their sense of humanity. Where is this asshole's sense of humanity? Oh, that's right. He's an asshole.

Sooo...does the police department involved here think that the gay bar and its patrons deserve less protection because they are gay? For Christ's sake! The place was getting damaged and people beaten! What the fuck more do you need to protect and serve? A straight dick and a cross?

Some religious zealots and fundamentalists and literalists are dedicated to slippery slope thinking...big time. Oh, look! If you give gays any rights the earth will go up in a big ball of flame and the Tribulation will set upon man faster than ever! AAAAHHHH!!!!!

Sooo...never mind the science of climate shift, but the mega hurricanes are really punishment from God because He is so pissed off with the sin of being gay that He decides to punish people who are NOT gay...by virtue of the weather? Who is being punished for what here? I am a lesbian. What the hell did Hurricane Sandy do to me? Why would someone else who is NOT a lesbian be punished for me being a lesbian? How does this work?

Uganda is one fucked up country. Hands down. We have our issues in the US, but damn. Uganda takes the cake. Actually, a LOT of countries in Africa take the cake.

See...it does not take much to feel hope and see hope and hear hope, right? Listen to what this woman has to say. Really listen.

Sooo...this total douchebag preacher suggests that if your little boy starts acting like a girl you should smack him around. Punch your kid? This guy is suggesting child abuse, advocating it.

What Does God Do To Gays? Part I

Divine sanctions for mistreatment of homosexuals?

Sooo...if being gay is a bad thing how does God want people to behave in regards to punishing what is supposed to be a very bad thing? Does God tell people what the punishment is supposed to be or does He let them choose how to punish gays so long as it is something that falls under the confines of the definition of 'punishment' or something similar? Let's take a peek, shall we?

Sooo...what God does to punish gays is to punish EVERYONE? Why in the world punish everyone for something so few do? Does law really work like this, where everyone should be punished for what others do? Is this divine judgment? And garbage like this is precisely part of what gives God and religion such a bad name. Seriously? You really, really think that the changing weather patterns in Colorado are part of some divine judgment for issues with gay marriage? You're smoking crack, dude. It is called 'weather' and it happens to be a major part of the processes of this planet, which by the way is a living planet so these thing DO happen. And why the fuck would God punish everyone in Colorado for something only a fraction choose, hummm? That sounds fair and balanced, right?

This guy thinks that gays (or at least people who engage in gay sex) should be shot in the head with a bullet or bow and arrow. Wonderful. He says this toward the end of this clip in case you were wondering. I only say that because this fellow goes on and on before he gets to saying that. Anyways, this is quite the misleading video. The wrestler's stage name was Rick Michaels and his real name is Raymond Rawls. He was charged with sexual exploitation and NOT being gay as this ding dong apparently thinks. Sexual exploitation IS a crime...as it SHOULD BE. Being gay is not a crime, as it SHOULD NOT BE. 

Did you know that the term 'sodomy' is not only NOT in the Bible, but it is a terrible and purposeful misinterpretation added to the repertoire of the Christian religion by those seeking to control by redefining what the divine is against as far as sex goes? No? Check this out:  http://nwanglicanblog.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/sodomy-a-biblical-word-study-that-might-surprise-you/  And did you know that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing to do with homosexuality? Check this out: http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/ngier/sodom.htm  Sooo...you do realize that the first use and supposed intended meaning of the word 'sodomy' is completely inconsistent with the Bible, right? The Bible never, NEVER said such a word with such a meaning. People added that shit. Check this out: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sodomy  And finally, here is the clip where some ass munch named Pat Buchanan says gays ought to be castrated at about 3:10 into the clip:

This is horrible and deeply heartbreaking. People did this to their child whom they suspected was gay. A child. Their child. Do YOU have children? Would you do such a fucked up thing to them just because you suspected them to be gay? Do you know what it is like to be looked down upon and belittled and harassed and demeaned and mistreated because you are gay? Do you know what it is like to want to die because of how you are treated because you are gay? Would you want your sibling or child to feel such a way?

God, the Bigot. And yes, Bigot should be capitalized since God IS the biggest, baddest BIGOT there ever was, correct?


Jail time for being gay. ? Jail time for being gay? Robbers and thugs and molesters go to jail for harming, HARMING others. In a same-sex marriage someone is creating a bond with someone they LOVE. If you are straight...would YOU go to jail to marry the man or woman you love? I am a woman. Would I go to jail just to marry the woman I love? Yes.

Duck your head? This woman is fucked in her head. 


Where is the wrath and punishment of God for elder abuse, rape, robbery, battery, exploitation, bigamy, pedophilia, physical abuse, mental abuse, spiritual abuse, child abuse, animal abuse...all of these abuses that some people seem to have an affinity for? Out of all of these terrible things God chooses to punish EVERYONE for those who are gay? Being gay is not a crime, but rape is a crime. Being gay is not a crime, but child abuse is a crime. Being gay is not a crime, but robbery is a crime. Being gay is not a crime, but elder abuse is a crime. WTF, God?

Maybe part of the problem is that there are some people who just have a need to be mean, whether or not the fulfillment of that need pacifies some deep-seeded desire for control and power. I do not know. But...I think there are just some people who have this need, this push from within them, this propensity to be mean...and they WILL defend this need. Yikes. Fuck 'em.

What a move by these parents who set this shit up, hummm? Shut out the gay kids? What a way to bring a society and a people together, what a way to teach your children/the next generation how to behave and treat others. Nice.

Signs Jesus is Coming Soon

And HOW Long Have the Religiously Afflicted Been Claiming This?

Loads and loads of people over roughly the last couple of thousand years have tried to predict when the supposed second arrival of Jesus Christ will take place. Do you ever wonder what the Bible has to say about this? Let's check it out, shall we?

Matthew 24:36, "But no one knows of that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

Sooo...when it comes to the above verse what I would like to know is how in the freaky-doo can GOD know when Jesus will return but Jesus Himself will NOT know. How does this work? Isn't Jesus supposed to be God? Wouldn't Jesus be all-knowing? If Jesus is all-knowing then...uhmmm...wouldn't He know the details of His scheduled return to planet earth? Some translations of this verse even say that the Son does not know. Lovely. Why not confuse the fuck out of your followers, right? Give 'em something juicy to argue over for centuries. Wonderful. Anyways, the point made here with this verse is that no one is supposed to know. Considering that...why the fuck believers continue to make predictions as to when Jesus will come back is curious. Even when people say, "We don't know when, but soon," that is STILL making a prediction. 

Matthew 23:34,"Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are accomplished."

Here we have an apparent blunder by the Son of God Himself, and why more Christians don't pay closer attention is interesting. Those who DO pay attention have all sorts of ways to explain away this divine SNAFU, right? In verse 36 of this same chapter Jesus says only GOD knows when the return will be and that even the Son (that would be Jesus) does not know. Hummm. But...here in this verse Jesus clearly makes a prediction as to when the return will be. He says the present generation will not pass away until all of these things have happened. For many Christians, when this obvious Jesus-flub is pointed out they claim that Jesus was referring to the present generation of Man that fell from the Garden of Eden. Of course, ask them about any other generation of Man that fell from the Garden of Eden and they look at you like you are crazy. Seriously. Ask them. Why would the term "present generation" be used unless there is some kind of reference to a past and a future generation? That was explained to me as the past generation was Man before he fell and the future generation is the one that will live eternally with God in heaven. Thus, when Jesus referred to the present generation He really meant all of mankind that is fallen which then means Jesus could come back whenever He freaking wants to and still be correct. Clever. Well, looks like they got all of that horseshit covered.

Matthew 16:28, "Most certainly I tell you, there are some standing here who will in no way taste of death, until they see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom."

Now here is yet another interesting verse, right? Jesus says that there were some there in His presence who would not die until they saw the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom. Sure. Jesus isn't back and all of those mofos who were standing around are all dead...LONG dead, right? This was explained to me a couple of ways one being that Jesus was referring to no taste of death since they lived eternally in the Holy Spirit or some crazy hodgepodge of religious dogma, and the other that Jesus was referring to His transformation and ascension into the big blue sky to be with Big Poppa. Whatever. What explanations have you heard?

Sooo...what about those people who wish to insist that Jesus said there would be signs of His return? Well, let's take a peek into the Bible for info on that as well, hummm? 

Mark 13:22, "For there will arise false christs and false prophets, and will show signs and wonders, that they may lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones."

In the above verse people are warned about false messiahs and prophets makings signs that are not real signs, right? Sooo...all of these crazies who swear by whomever they swear that they have received or seen a real sign really should consider this, right? What is hilariously funny is each of these truly believe they are the one with the real signs while everyone else is false. Good stuff! By the way...if the chosen ones can be led astray how in the fuckey-doo are they the chosen ones?

Acts 2:19, "I will show wonders in the sky above, and signs on the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and billows of smoke."

In this verse is where the real lunatics of religion find their foothold to claim that just about any natural disaster is a freaking sign from God that Jesus is just around the corner. Sounds like God is trying to rip off on nature by counting on people not realizing it is nature they are viewing and not the fairy tale power of the Bible's God.

Luke 21:25, "There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and on the earth anxiety of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the waves; "

Oh, look. Here God is ripping nature off again when it comes to power and awe and things that appear to the unlearned to be miracles but are really normal. Oh, and the reference to the anxiety of nations is equally stupid, right? When hasn't there been some nation or nations on earth squabbling, hummm? There is always someone fighting someone else over something. Even if all of the nations of the earth decided to quit fighting you could probably accurately bet that the countries of the Middle East would opt to continue fighting. Sooo...this anxiety of the nations thing is retarded and absolutely no big revelation of any type.

Why do believers look for signs of anything anyways, hummm? If they are so protected by their God and so favored by Him and so blessed...what the fuck are they worried about? When Jesus gets here, He gets here, right? Why toil over it, why worry, why scare the shit out of yourselves wondering whether or not you are going to meet God's standard, hummm? If God is everywhere wouldn't everywhere and everything be a sign for believers? Go on that and be happy about it. If not, why try to make some kind of holy sign out of every damn thing that happens? That is so stupid. Besides, in Luke 11:29 didn't Jesus admonish those who sought signs, "When the multitudes were gathering together to him, he began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks after a sign. No sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah, the prophet."

If you are a believer you shouldn't need any kind of sign because you already believe. With your whole heart at that. If you are a believer looking for or seeking or claiming to have discovered a sign or anything of the like you need to know you have a problem. There is something wrong with your faith from within you. You should not be seeking signs and trying to interpret crazy shit. Just do your divine duty and believe. You do not need to pop about on street corners and pubs and wherever claiming the signs of the times are here. Don't you understand that if people do not believe as you do they do not care, do not give a shit, do not believe in any second coming or first coming for that matter, and most certainly are not seeking signs? Sometimes non-believers might say, "Show me a sign," but that is just a way to try to break it to you demented people who believe this crapola that there are no signs, you have no signs, cannot make any signs, and should be holding signs reading "Disillusioned with Promises of Perfection."

Now, onto some videos.

This is delicious fun! Sooo...this guy has a dream with Bill Nye the Science Guy, and has interpreted this dream to mean that Jesus' return is nigh? Wonderfully hilarious! What is the deal with filming this important message in your car, buddy?

Dude, you people are idiots. Do you know of or have you ever heard of such things as minerals and gasses and natural phenomenon that can change the color of water to a reddish color? Why are you fucktards pretending that there are no explanations for this? You aren't scaring anyone but yourselves, you know this, right? A geo-scientist will know what is going on and sure as hell won't be scared...and the really great thing is you do not have to be such a person to know why the water is turning this color. By the way, it has nothing to do with Jesus or God.

The sun and the moon do not act weird, you dumb twat. They cannot act or make decisions to do anything considered an act. The sun and the moon are part of the natural processes of this solar system, galaxy, and universe. Close your Bible and go get a milkshake.

It is a goddamn sunset, you bastard. A SUNSET. Yes, is it beautiful, but this beauty should NEVER be distorted to be some kind of validation for your delusions and deficient faith.

There have been soooo many people who for soooo long have said again and again that the signs of their times point to this Jesus fellow returning. This man's claims are nothing new at all. The disciples in the Bible thought the same damn thing. Hello.

Haahah!! Here we have Santa Clause's younger brother making his own claims about Jesus' return while trying to sell a few DVDs at the same time.

Dude, you totally fucked up your van. Did Jesus tell you to do that?

Sooo...according to this video God wants to talk to you. Really? If God wants to chat with someone He can do it Himself and not through someone else. He is God and can do anything, right? So, this should not be a problem. If God wants to talk to people He can do it in person and NOT through someone.

Natural...planet...processes. Got it?

Yikes. So many Christians come across like they are the only ones in the universe who, if they believe in something fervently enough, whatever it is they believe in (no matter how fucking screwy) must be absolutely true.

One day closer to being committed to an insane asylum...yay!!

I guess this idiot has never heard of astronomy? Does he know what a star is? Does he know how light travels? Does he know why something in the sky would look like this? Does he bother to try to find out why before he jumps up and says it is a sign of Jesus coming back?

You ding dongs say this with every single war. Even the people in the Bible said this in regards to the war that was occurring during their time in the New Testament. Get a new story, damn.

This is a burning bush? WTF? You have never seen it happen before so it MUST be Jesus? Hah!!

They're clouds, asshole. Clouds.

Holy shit. This man should go back to sleep because he looks so very, VERY tired I actually feel concerned for him. Geeze, buddy...please lay back down. And probably you should worry about this Jesus thing far less because I bet that isn't helping you sleep.

Jesus wants you to be ready with oil? Say...is He a member of O.P.E.C. or anything like that?

If God kept His promises Israel would not be in the pickles it is in, and neither  would they be in such a teeny little country, you know?

Ahhh...signs that the delusions are far-reaching. Isn't that great?

Sooo...if people are believing in Jesus just so they will not be left behind...that is NOT believing for the sake of faith, is it?

Time is short? You do realize this has been said here and there for the last, oh, almost two thousand years? Whose time are you going by, whose watch? It doesn't matter whether or not you think time is short, honey. All that matters is that there is truth and plenty of it. And guess what? Your fairy tale ramblings of a divine zombie peeking around the corner just ready to spring on man is a crock of shit. Sorry to break it to you, but the truth does not consist of crocks of shit, nor has it ever.

Biblical Literalism

Danger, Danger Everywhere and So Many Who Wish to Drink

Biblical literalism is one of the more dangerous aspects of Christianity. What biblical literalism is is taking the words of the Bible and interpreting them in their most basic, literal sense. In case you didn't know this can be an extremely dangerous, destructive, stupid thing to do. Are there exceptions to this when it comes to things in the Bible? I would say yes. How? Well, consider what is said about love (the good things that are said about love), right? Love is patient and kind and conquers all. Or how about the verse that says there is no greater love than that a man lay down his life for his friend (John 15:13)? These are good things, good concepts and ideas. 

BUT...when it comes to things like stoning your kids when they are being brats (Deuteronomy 21:18), killing those who work on the Sabbath (Exodus 31:14), stoning a woman if her groom finds her to not be a virgin (Deuteronomy 22:13-29), killing adulterers (Leviticus 20:10), and more, the ramifications of taking these things literally and actually following them is really beyond reason, as well as beyond the message of love that is supposed to be what the Bible is all about.

Sooo...do the hard-nosed Christians of the world really follow the Bible literally as so many claim it should be followed? If the Bible IS supposed to be followed literally what should have happened to Jimmy Swaggart after he sought the services of prostitutes? Let us take a look at some biblical literalism video clips. Some of these are from non-Christians asking questions or simply venting, some are portions of documentaries, and some are from those within the faith themselves.

This man asks a very good question, right? How is it that so many Christian literalists pick and choose what it is they want to take literally from the Bible? How can they say the Bible is literal and then turn around and not follow everything? How does this work?

This is heartbreaking. What the hell is wrong with people? This woman found out first hand, in the most tragic of fashions what can happen when biblical literalism runs amok. Would you want this to happen to your daughter? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnAjke3ZCQE

This is good stuff. Pay attention to the questions asked and fell free to post answers at the end of this posting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tJ37YH_uqM

Some of this is Children of the Corn creepy. Listen to what the minister who used to be a literalist has to say about context, language, culture, and custom. Very, very good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf-0YQZlM9c

Did you know that the biblical literalism that is SO important to so many Christians is largely a North American phenomenon? I found that to be immensely interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkcC8FkS6Nc

Will those who decide to take the Bible literally really take the time to consider the questions like that which this man asks, or will they continue to be stout in their literalism (supposed literalism) in an effort to remain true and straight for God and their faith? Is this a wise thing to do? This literalism IS a cop-out, isn't it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCgBNm8L5P8

Biblical literalists are not really literalists, are they? If they were there would be a hell of a lot more people in jail than there are now. Are YOU a biblical literalist? If so, when will your next daily sacrifice to Yahweh be? Oh, Jesus took care of that for you? Sooo...then the Word of God doesn't stand forever? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSAJrMyq9-Q&list=PL25EAA618C5BB6ECD

The old laws of the Old Testament should still apply since Jesus did say that He did NOT come to abolish the law, right? Explain this. I am sure there are at least three different ways I have heard this explained to me having grown up in a very Christian family. What other explanations can there be? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjHD4QCPa60&list=PL25EAA618C5BB6ECD

Pay attention to what this man points out as being the definition of truth. Very good. And why is the King James version of the Bible one of the favorite interpretations for biblical literalists? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAktCtTMM58

Good stuff! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0XXEd1W0pw&list=PL4mXQHptk2LjeezTQqLS7D2sCed6wH3uj

Oh, yeah. Religion largely gets morality ALL wrong. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEhP6FCjCkQ

God said to do this and to NOT do that. Sooo...how many people actually listen to the one and only true God that they love and actually follow through with ALL of these commands? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF3TRGh8lrc&list=PL4mXQHptk2LgdG3qgNWiSFkmg6scHTqN_

Well, three cheers for the Bible fudging up royally on the dates, times, places, and people involved in the supposed important events of one of the most popular religions ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5JpD6A3Tm4&list=PL4mXQHptk2LgdG3qgNWiSFkmg6scHTqN_&index=2

Do you think that maybe the Bible has so many contradictions in it to help the dyslexic faithful of the universe to conform? I mean, if people do the opposite of what they are told to do (some people, that is), maybe by God saying something totally the opposite of what He really wants someone to do He will get them to do what they should be doing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVpTzThdsds&list=PL4mXQHptk2LgdG3qgNWiSFkmg6scHTqN_&index=7

Be Very Afraid

Try the newest book that questions the Pentateuch:

What are the fear mongers saying now?

Well, it has been some time since we have taken a peek at what the religious 'fraidy-cats of America have been saying is happening or is going to happen. Why don't we take a look?

Sooo...do you really think that your statement that human beings have not yet seen the wrath of God in full as of yet holds any merit whatsoever that may justifiably be used in trying to convert people? What kind of God tries to harvest followers with fear? That is straight up bullshit and any straight thinking person knows it. There is no logic whatsoever to your supposed loving faith that is based on a believe this way or die policy. Oh. That's right. It isn't reason or logic or whatever. It is faith. Nope. Sorry, pal. You got that wrong as well.

You mean to tell me that the Christian group mentioned here has NEVER participated or condoned or encouraged or seeded any kind of prejudice or unfairness? Religion is dangerous.

Hah! These guys simply cannot do the math. LISTEN to the numbers they are trying to present as a solution/idea. Do they realize that millions of Americans times millions of dollars is FAR MORE than what they apparently think it is? Here the great danger for America is people not knowing what the hell they are talking about.

Sooo...if you are a Christian and if someone who used to be famous told you that Christians in America are in danger would you believe it? If you would believe such a claim is that because the person telling you is famous or because they believe in Jesus or both?

Preachers using the bad news of the world to scare people into transforming the congregation into greater numbers is nothing new. That's right. Use the mean and terrible things that people do to try to prove your God. This guy says that years ago people were not that educated but that they were more moral. What fucking ever. So, I guess for this fellow righteousness equals an individual who is uneducated or who at least has a very limited access to information in general. Scary.

Oh WOW. Somebody has no teeth. Lovely. Anyways, this guy wants to tell you something that sounds so very detrimental to your survival. Try watching this. You will find it is detrimental to your survival. 

Oh dead, dear Jesus. Beck. This guy is a real hoot who regularly hoots out of his ass.

Yes, I know this clip is fairly long but it is worth it to listen to what this man has to say. If you wish to discuss with any Christian person why their belief in the so-called dangers of Evolution are ridiculous you should know what and how they are thinking, what their material is.

Purposeful twisting of the fact and information to make it look like the Christians of America are under attack is pathetic. Is God so very powerful that He has to rely on lies and twisted facts in order to scare people into believing in Him?

The DANGERS of Evolution? Interesting. If you are protected by God why in the hell would you worry about Evolution in the first place? Listen to what this guy says, I mean really listen to the individual claims and refutations he makes. It is pure lunacy.

Holy shit. This guy is trying to say it is dangerous to read and study different books. He also comes out with this little statistic about so many Christians in the world being killed every so many minutes. Where or how he came up with this would be interesting to find out. But never mind all of that, right? According to this guy the only book you need is the Bible.

That's right. God is angry because you are not teaching people that He is angry. If you are not out there trying to convert people to your faith by preaching God's wrath then you cannot control them with their fear. If you cannot control them with their fear then your religious delusion and its hold on other will dissipate.
