The insanity of religion, Batman shooting version

This article is notable because so many Christians agree with it

A miracle inside the Aurora shooting: one victim’s story

For any intelligent person, the most amazing part of the article is this section:

It seems as if the bullet traveled through Petra’s brain without hitting any significant brain areas. The doctor explains that Petra’s brain has had from birth a small “defect” in it. It is a tiny channel of fluid running through her skull, like a tiny vein through marble, or a small hole in an oak board, winding from front to rear.  Only a CAT scan would catch it, and Petra would have never noticed it.

But in Petra’s case, the shotgun buck shot, maybe even the size used for deer hunting, enters her brain from the exact point of this defect. Like a marble through a small tube, the defect channels the bullet from Petra’s nose through her brain. It turns slightly several times, and comes to rest at the rear of her brain. And in the process, the bullet misses all the vital areas of the brain. In many ways, it almost misses the brain itself.  Like a giant BB though a straw created in Petra’s brain before she was born, it follows the route of the defect. It is channeled in the least harmful way. A millimeter in any direction and the channel is missed.  The brain is destroyed. Evil wins a round.

As he shares, the doctor seems taken aback. It is an odd thing to have a surgeon show a bit of wonder. Professionally, these guys own the universe, it seems, and take everything in stride. He is obviously gifted as a surgeon, and is kind in his manner. “It couldn’t have gone better. If it were my daughter,” he says quietly, glancing around to see if any of his colleagues might be watching him, “I’d be ecstatic. I’d be dancing a jig.” He smiles. I can’t keep my smile back, or the tears of joy. In Christianity we call it prevenient grace: God working ahead of time for a particular event in the future. It’s just like the God I follow to plan the route of a bullet through a brain long before Batman ever rises. Twenty-two years before.

“In Christianity we call it prevenient grace: God working ahead of time for a particular event in the future.” How does an intelligent person even begin to respond to such nonsense? If there were a God, an intelligent person would note the fact that this god’s “grace” left 12 people dead and dozens injured in this tragedy. To say that a god saved this one women while killing all the others wanders straight into the realm of insanity. Yet millions of Christians somehow agree with it. How is that possible?

    Christians never see a balanced picture.

    They look at all the beauty and grace in nature and exclaim “Isn’t God clever? What a wonderful God to give us such beauty and wonderment!” They don’t, however, associate the nasty, atrocious things in nature with God.

    I don’t think it even occurs to them that the same God that gave them rainbows and beautiful green pastures also gave them tsunamis and devastating earthquakes.

    The same God that gave them kittens and puppies to enjoy also gave them mosquitoes to bite them, poison ivy to infect them, cockroaches and ants to infest their homes and food. You get the idea (but they, of course, don’t—orwon’t).

    The exclamation will always be “Isn’t God wonderful!” at the good things butnever “WTF, God?!” at the horrible things.

    idiots just can’t accept random coincidence. coupled with the ego/specialMe, they thank the heavens for the touchdown or the mystical force that spared their trailer or the unexplained reason why the sun and moon appear exactly the same. it’s so moronic.

    given enough lottery plays, you think that the sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6 will every come up? god’s work?

    these are the same idiots that marvel and exclaim that the date 12-12-12 only happens every 100 years. isn’t it the same for 12-13-12 or 12-14-12 and so on? somehow the triple identical digits are special and are god’s work?

    a medical patient is pronounced dead, but recovers. gotta be god.

    god spared me and but killed the rest of the motherfuckers is not for me to answer. well it’s not for me to try to explain it as god shit either.

    Why does god require “science” to reveal himself as you claim? Why does god need a holy book?

    The TRUTH of the matter is that you can’t find god, so you must lie in lieu of the fact that you don’t have any evidence for him. Not only you, but the persons who wrote and believe this nonsensical story.

    Suh wants the lucky lady here to suffer, in addition to her gunshot wound and other psychological ailments sure to follow, a more severe case of survivor’s syndrome than otherwise because (s)he is simply that desperate to paint everything he sees with delusional fairy magic, whatever the costs in the real world.

    Die or get shot in the head?

    Yes, I’m sure she was so glad to experience the horror and terror of those moments, to see innocent people and children shot to death. Yes, she was surely blessed. I can only hope that you can experience something like that in your lifetime.

    Jessica Ghawi, a victim of the Aurora shooting wrote of the Toronto shooting: “I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath.”

    Right, Suh, she sounds like she felt very blessed, too.

    Isn’t it amazing how god couldn’t simply stop her from going to the movie or simply make the bullet(s) bounce off her head? But no, she had wasn’t simply lucky, she had an unknown brain defect that god planted in her head to save her, right?

    Reportedly:

    “Petra may still face additional surgeries, including optional facial reconstruction where the shot hit her nose. Her family is grateful and relieved that she will ultimately pull through, but there is now a new battle they must fight: Petra’s medical bills, which they estimate may surpass $100,000.”

    As opposed to someone who thanks god for saving one person via a “brain defect” while not saving a six-year old girl in the exact same situation.

    “Suh didn’t paint it as a miracle, she did.”

    Would you please show us where in that article she did that?

    Seems like if god wanted her protected, there would have been 1000 easier ways than giving her a brain defect.
    Hey look, I wasn’t even AT that movie theater, so god must love ME even more than her… at least I didn’t get shot in the face.

    Well, I’ve got YOU beat Lou… I’ve never had cancer, HIV, smallpox, or dysentery. Not only that, but I’ve never been killed in a plane crash, burned alive in a church fire (ever notice how many churches burn down every year? what’s THAT all about?) and I’ve never been in tornado, earthquake, or volcanic eruption. I’ve never been washed out to sea by a tsunami, or had a building or bridge collapse on or under me.
    God must really, really, love me…………

  24. on 25 Jul 2012 at 2:16 am 24.Anonymous said …

    But wait, DPK. To use Suh’s logic (two words that are invariably mutually exclusive) people who have had cancer, HIV, smallpox or dysentery, or survived plane crashes, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc – those must be the ones this god really, really, really loves.

    After all, isn’t this all about this god demonstrating his “love” by sacrificing a shit-load of innocent people then sparing one or two but with traumatic experiences that my well psychologically scar them for the rest of their life? What a hero, this imaginary person must be. Not.

    Now, Suh. How about you explain to us which god did all this loving and how you know it was that particular one? Any bets that “Suh” will flee to be replaced by BiffBenBozo/Curmudgeon/Cleo etc?

  25. on 25 Jul 2012 at 2:54 am 25.DPK said …

    Buried in 2 lines in the story of the “miracle” is not only the fact that she was also hit by 3 other bullets, but that her mother is currently in the final stages of terminal cancer. If that’s how god shows his love for those he cares enough about to plan a brain abnormality 22 years ago so she could avoid brain damage while she was being shot 4 times while watching a movie as a break from caring for a mother dying of terminal cancer…. all I can say is, your god is a prick of epic proportions.

    But he didn’t intervene to save all the others – all those who were wounded, all those who were shot, all those who didn’t attend that movie? Really?

    God obviously intervened and saved billions of people throughout the planet who weren’t killed in that movie theater, including an innocent six-year old girl?

    You believe that god created a “brain defect” to “save” a shooting victim. What is the mechanism that god used to save all the other people?

    What is it with your god that he likes about allowing young girls (Christina-Taylor Green, 9, Tucson shooting victim)to be murdered, all the while allowing young boys to be sexually molested by “men of god?”

    Cue the sock-puppeteer.

    I wonder what we would be saying if it was discovered that an armed policeman, capable of stopping the violence in that theater, was there, but choose to just stand quietly by and watch the mayhem unfold? We would call him a coward and a monster, and we would strip him of his badge and authority for failing to act.

    But god receives praise for creating a brain abnormality in a victim that maybe helped to lessen the severity of her wounds… while standing by holding his dick as dozens of other innocent people are massacred?

    What’s wrong with this picture? If you say god doesn’t interfere in free will… ok fine. That’s the way he do. But THEN don’t turn around and say he creates a specific person’s anatomy in a specific way that is designed to spare her permanent brain damage. I mean, he either intercedes in human affairs, or he doesn’t. If he doesn’t, then he is irrelevant, if he does, then he is culpable and complicit.

    Another example of the insane religious insisting they can have their cake and eat it too.

  34. on 25 Jul 2012 at 4:02 pm 34.Prime said …

    DPK, there were folks in the military in that theater among the wounded, for what it’s worth.

    In related news, already we’ve seen right-wing politicians that don’t have enough common decency to use their brains before their mouths call out (former state senator Russell Pearce, Republican from Arizona) exactly what you’ve said and then apologize for it shortly thereafter, based upon what he had to describe as “tremendous acts of courage” (by civilians, it turns out.

  35. on 25 Jul 2012 at 4:29 pm 35.DPK said …

    Not having been there, no one is qualified to judge who “would have” or “would not have” been capable of stopping the carnage. Except god, who is described as both omnipotent and omniscient, certainly would have been capable.
    Members of the military? Who knows? Were they armed? Where they trying to keep others out of the line of fire? We can’t judge.
    Now, the faithful will admonish us for “judging god”. Naturally, they fail to realize that no one is actually “judging” god, because god does not exist. All we are doing is pointing out the utter absurdity of their contentions.
    With a loving, all powerful god in the picture, there are problems after problems and contradictions after contradictions. But look at the same events from the point of view of god being completely imaginary, then the outcomes are exactly what we would expect, and it all makes perfect sense.

    Well-placed comment, Dez. There are about 30 of them above yours indicating why anyone who would espouse such a view is a narrow-minded moron, and yet you still made it. Very nice work.

  41. on 25 Jul 2012 at 6:04 pm 41.Severin said …

    I mean, we could show some understanding for a non-acting policeman who could be afraid for his own life. It is human to take care of yourself.

    But an omnipotent god standing and just watching, then suddenly deciding to turn the bullet which targeted ONE person, NOT to a wall, but directly through her brain (because he “knew” for her brain “tunnel”), sounds idiotic.

    In fact, it sounds too idiotic to be possible.

    The only two conclusions we can have in this situation:
    a) An omnipotent god choose to “save” a young woman in an extremely strange way, pushing her in pains and health troubles dangerous for her life, while letting many other people, including several children, to die like dogs.
    If such a god exists, he cant be good. He IS a crazy monster.
    b) The event had nothing to do with a god.

  42. on 25 Jul 2012 at 6:10 pm 42.Severin said …

    I admit that, maybe, we can have also the third conclusion: god exists, but did NOT take part in the event.

    If I understand it well, then: to make a hole through someone’s scull to “save” him (her), while watching other people and children dying, IS amazing!

    He has promised on several occasions that I recall to provide evidence that this god actually exists, but then he always beats a hasty retreat… and then lurk in the shadows until he thinks everyone has forgotten his empty promises and then once again starts his silly, empty jabber and lies.

    Satan is a tool of God’s love in the sense that he forces us to see God’s loving patience.

    If you go all the way back to the days just following creation, men lived nine hundred years or more.

    There will never be world peace until God’s house and God’s people are given their rightful place of leadership at the top of the world. How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy moneychangers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?

    Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

    Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals–the two things seem to go together.

    The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by the Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian people and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society. And that’s what’s been happening.

  68. on 27 Jul 2012 at 2:25 am 68.Hell said …

    Is Hell exothermic (gives of heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

    First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are leaving.
    I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to hell.
    With birth and death rates as they are we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
    Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume of Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are added.
    This gives two possibilities:
    1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase untill all Hell breaks loose.
    2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop untill Hell freezes over.
    So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms.Banyan during my freshman year that, “It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you” and we take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then #2 cannot be true.
    Thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze.

    When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Leviticus 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. How should I deal with this?

    I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as stated in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

    I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Leviticus 15:19-24). The problem is, how can I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

    Leviticus 25:44 states that I may buy slaves from the nations that are around us. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Canadians, but not Mexicans. Can you clarify?

    I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

    A friend of mine says that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Leviticus 10:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?

    Leviticus 20:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

    I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help.

    I think LNF’s inclusion of the word “sadly” before the thing about how many Twitter followers he has indicates that he does not agree with the position of the preacher but rather is submitting it as further evidence of how disgustingly deluded many Christians are.

    I can’t read that anyone should follow the advice of this preacher into his comment, no matter how hard I try.

    As for the preacher’s lack of “men” in the comment, like most theists, he can’t help but think in male-centered terminology. This is unlikely to be a position that LNF agrees with, by the tone of his comment.

    The theists and sock puppets have us all a little too on-edge here. That’s the problem with constantly dealing with liars and manipulators.

    LNF and the “preacher” (who has impressive 250,000 followers on Twitter!) claim that the 6 years old girl and other victims died because it was god’s will.

    James had nothing to do with it.

    Of course, I still think that, if god was involved in any massacre, he (because he is omnipotent, can do ANYTHING he pleases) becomes a sick murderer.

    Does god, after deciding to kill a little girl (as the “priest” teaches us), and seeing her dying, shouts, as most pervert children killers do in such situations, “I’m coming, I’m coming”?

    “He {god} does no wrong to anybody when he takes their life, whether at 2 weeks or at age 92.

    True enough. God gives the life for a time, he takes it when it is time. It is his and his alone.”

    Now, since god, at least in present day times, does not DIRECTLY take anyone’s life, and since the OP was talking about the deaths in the Colorado shooting and other instances of innocent lives being taken, we can assume that any death that occurs amounts to god “taking it when it is time”.

    Then Goose went on to say:
    “Man has no right to take life although we takes [sic] millions annually and call it a woman’s right, pro-choice and many other pleasant names.”

    Do not these also amount to god “taking it when it is time”? If not, how come? Isn’t he all powerful and doesn’t EVERYTHING happen according to his plan? Or do only SOME things happen according to his plan, and other things he has absolutely no control over?

    Perhaps the Ass-man is right, I just don’t understand. But I think it’s more likely that I don’t understand because your position contradicts itself. And Ass-man finds this amusing. Well, THAT says a lot, huh?

    Goose, YOU must forgive ASStrophysicist. He routinely makes incorrect claims for which he never provides any evidence.

    Second, DPK isn’t a blogger, nor is he “our blogger.” The blogger, to put it in simple terms for ASS, is the person known as Thomas who posts the words at the very beginning of each thread. In case ASS still doesn’t understand, they can also be found by clicking on the links in the upper right section labeled “Recent Posts.” Finally the people who ARE NOT the blogger are everybody else other than the aforementioned Thomas who posts a comment. They are those who post comments in response to that the blogger wrote. If ASS can’t understand that, it’s obvious who those people are because our names appear after a number, and then followed by the word “said.”

    “He doesn’t just doesn’t understand but he gives me a good laugh regularly.”

    Not only does DPK give ASS a good laugh, but so do I, and I have no doubt that many other readers do as well. We know it’s wrong, but it just happens as when you see someone slip and fall. After you laugh, you feel sorry for them.

    Maybe now you understand what ASS means by “foot-in-mouth.” If you still don’t, then watch for the comments labeled “A said…”

    Every night, a man sits down for supper and his two dogs sit right next to him, waiting for a handout. He fucks with them by placing a piece of chicken in front of them and then pulls it away at the last second, and keeps for himself. He usually does this several times. And, as usual, when all is done he throws one piece on the floor and lets them fight for it. The fast dog always gets.
    So, if dogs think irrationally like Christians, do you think the fast dog that always gets the treat says “My master is so nice, he gave me chicken!”, totally forgetting how much of an asshole the man was, and that the other dog was left without any food? What must the other dog think?

    Why is it you theists must intentionally misrepresent the truth? Do you think we’re actually dumb enough to fall for your inept dupes? Is it cause or effect? Does a moral defect cause one to be a theist or does being a theist force one to lie to support their delusion?

Yes God created everything and he is the almighty, but if it was not for Jesus dying on the cross we would not be here today God would have killed us all then! You can not receive what you do not deserve! We as humans created all this hate an killing in the world! Those who hear his word, believe, confess, and get baptized receive all of his glory! Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,
    nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated
    you from your God;
    your sins have hidden his face from you,
    so that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:1, 2 NIV)!
    When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! (Romans 6:20, 21 NIV)!
    For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! (Romans 5:10 NIV)!
    But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 NIV)!

    Jay it could be the dog is thinking life is not fair. Then some of the dogs might be thanking dogs like World Hunger dogs and Compassion International dogs and even Big Dog George Bush who give money, time and consequently food to the dogs who are truly hungry.

    That dog is probably pissed at atheist who continue to keep all their food and share none with them. They probably read the stats about how tight liberals are with THEIR money (these dogs can read). They are only generous with what belongs to others.

    Do I win a prize or something?
    hahaha.
    It’s not even fun fucking with them anymore, it’s just too easy.
    But, let me try to understand the progress of the argument for god so far:
    1. If you are an atheist, god will not give you a brain abnormality that will allow you to get shot in the face and avoid serious brain damage, unless of course, you are an innocent 6 year old girl at the movies with her parents for a night of fun, then all bets are off.
    2. If you are not an atheist, god may or may not protect you from a crazed gunman, but it’s cool, because whatever happens is how he wants it, so chill. Oh, and if you ARE an atheist, he might spare you or let you get your head blown off too, but you won’t find any pattern or reason to it because god is mysterious.
    3. When god lets the above mentioned little girl get her brains blown out while her parent’s watch, it’s because it is her time to go, and it’s ok because it’s gods right to take her life, but if a woman aborts a fetus, god doesn’t want that to happen, but he is powerless to stop it because to do so would be an abuse of his power. Now, why hwe doesn’t give fetuses the power to live though the abortion process (like a brain abnormality that lets you get shot in the face)… no one can understand because god is mysterious.
    4. Allegories are meaningless unless you can prove that the allegorical characters are actually real. Except for bible stories, they don’t count.
    5. Atheists are animal abusers, but good christians will always feed a hungry dog.
    6. Bush, Obama, liberals, blah, blah… wtf?
    7. What’s left? Oh yeah… evolution, Stalin, Mao… Dawkins and then tada!!! Bio-genesis.

    I think that about covers it. The only thing actually missing is any actual evidence showing that any god or gods in fact, exist.

    Yah! God is not only omnipotent but he can do whatever he likes. Psalm 135:6 ‘Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.’ God is not only the star of the film life; he is also the director. He was there right behind the physics of the guns in Aurora, he was there right behind the Administration of those who responded, he was there right behind the humanity and compassion of those that offered help. Get the one dimensional approach out of your minds – but good is over evil.

    See also Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    Read your Oxford dictionary. God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He is the Supreme Being. But God can be any superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes.

    God is the creator he creates in the fullest sense of the word. Scientist on the other hand over-analyse the obvious and at best enter in to already stipulated truths and realities – worse yet they try to take the glory.

    Study ontology and epistemology and then you will understand the essence and meaning of God.

    You cannot take an Almighty, all-creating being and match it to an angel.

    You cannot take a being who existed before evil or the concept thereof and say that that being is in essence evil.

    Likewise you cannot compare it to a created thing real or fictitious as the case might be.

    Point omnipotent, the point where power stops being pursued and is embodied. Point omnipotent the point where all of the law stops being adhered to and is instead manufactured.

    (3) Prove this being is “all creating”
    (4) You _can_ compare it to anything you like. That’s what makes it a comparison.

    As Lou remarks. What you are doing is providing excuses for why you don’t want to admit that this being isn’t real. You have no proof so you invent reasons to hide your own failure from your personal examination.

    Unless you can provide this proof, you’re simply another delusional individual that can’t bear to go through life without the security blanket of believing in a sky-daddy.

Thus proof of God will never be found BUT out of his own mercy and wise mind God makes himself known to those he will. No you won’t find proof of God BUT through God’s mercy and no merit or virtue of man’s own God may reveal himself to whomsoever he wills.

    Look I grew up in my younger life in a Church, BUT about two decades ago as a teenager I was experimenting with being an Athiest. And that was only a step up from another level, ‘Not Giving a Monkeys’.

    Yet the sheer force of logic and the omnipresent obviousness of God’s existence led me to return to my roots as a believer, now every day I get stronger and wiser.

    So there is hope for everyone; provided you don’t let your hope time out, for then there is nothing but eternal corruption.

    Omnipotent means being able TECHNICALLY to do anything. Wise means using your Omnipotence to do the most valuable things. Justice means being fair and a fair God puts himself first or he is not God.

    More than the Loving or the Power – God is the First and the Put-First.

    If God helps man to his detriment or indignity only then is he a dumb God – and that is in the final analysis.

    As Plato argued nothing (no situation, thing or otherwise) is tenable without Justice.

    The closest God came to being unjust to himself was the cross of Calvary. And that was because of the Law of Love. You can say God is not omnipotent. Who is? How can act A be done and also not be done? And that is without first departing from the criteria or meaning of the act in that instance?

    One may be, to start with, Omnipotent or possessed of Infinite Potential – then that Omnipotence is dispensed according to wisdom.

    An All-Loving, All-Powerful God may help man and may prove himself to sinners but A God who does ‘The God Thing’ that is ‘Uphold His Pre-eminence Under all Situations’ will never make a fool of himself for man’s sake and if that means brimstone and fire that is no problem to God.

    MAY I ASK YOU WHEN DID YOU FORCE GOD TO TAKE THE HIPPOCRATES OATH?

    HE MADE MAN, HE RULES MAN, AND IT IS HIS PEROGATIVE WHAT HE DOES WITH MAN AND HE DOESN’T ABIDE BY MAN’S RULES AND MOST OF ALL HE DOESN’T ANSWER TO MAN!

    Chik fil A had a banner day yesterday, as customers stood in lines for hours during Chik fil A Appreciation Day. Chik fil A has a different opinion than the AtheoLeft, and that is driving the AtheoLeft to distraction, charging Chik fil A with general EEEvilness due to being out of the AtheoLeftist fold and control. Chik fil A’s crime? Supporting the core male-female parent family. That support offends the sensibilities of the AtheoLeft and homosexuals who obviously do NOT support such a hideous concept, and deem it unconsionable and IMMORAL (regardless of their general lack of moral absolutes).

    AtheoLeftists took to Twitter yesterday with their wishes for death and suffering for the EEEvil nonconformists who are not part of their own opinionated group. Some of these were accumulated on Twitchy for your perusal.

    Also in the news is the intent to pursue the government interventionists who threatened Chik fil A and then recanted under pressure. They were likened to a mugger who gives back your wallet and watch when a bystander pulls a gun on him: the crime is not obliterated by backpedalling when you discover that you are caught out in the open. This part is great:

    “Moreno categorically denied violating state law and accused the GOP of “political grandstanding.

    The alderman also rescinded the threat he made last week to keep Chick-fil-A out of his ward.”

    I really don’t care about any of this except to the extent that its CEO invoked the name of god to promote his agenda, and that 40 Year A-hole automatically associates atheists with anything he doesn’t like. And the legality of the boycotts isn’t the issue here. It’s the idea that any group of people want to organize boycotts against businesses because they don’t agree with their ideals.

    But, typical of xtians, the CFA corporate purpose is one of hypocrisy – “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

    For the record, I think the mayors were wrong in their reactions. But, I wonder how different things would be if he made similar comments about blacks or Muslims?

I mean you talk so manly (not really, LOL), but all I hear is gay talk. I couldn’t care less what the gays are up to, and that’s a hell of of a way to label a group of people, so I apologize. I’m serious though. If not for you obsessed freaks I’d never think about anyone’s sexuality unless I’m with a person and they brought it up, but that’s never happened. Of course, the women I socialize with need not announce their likes. They already have by the time we’re friendly. Get yourself a good woman (if you really are into that) and shut the fuck up. Btw, when did Chicago’s thief mayor stop being a Jew? Oh yeah, if you’re a Repug, don’t tell me you haven’t noticed how rampant homosexuality is in the Repug party. I don’t mind, but you’re filled with those closeted, self-hating and anti equal-rights voters. Talk about hypocrites. You freaks really do resemble the Nazis more each day. You know the Repugs are experiencing some sexual confusion when a frequenter of houses of prostitution gets a standing ovation for paying to bang a woman-even if he was horrid at it.

    Your religious “faith” is based on something that you believe despite, or instead of, evidence. You have “faith” that prayers are answered even though all the evidence shows that they are not. A good description of your faith would be delusional,

    Conversely, Lou *knows* his car started last time he turned the key, the time before that, the time before that, the time before that… He has very little reason to expect it to be different. Not only that, but other people starting his car can *realistically expect* his car to start.

    When you can demonstrate the same repeatability to starting a car to, say, praying for your god to heal amputees, then you can say that everyday events use faith in the same way as you want to pretend happens.

    Until then. Fuck off. Please.

    Would you…
    As a olive branch to you, and possibly as a way to come to grips with your delusion, I will offer you my standard ” bowling ball” offer that I make to all theists who tell me that I live my life with “faith”, just as they do. No one has taken me up on it yet.
    Here is what I will propose. I will carry a bowling ball up a 12 foot ladder. You will stand directly underneath me. I wiil trust in my “faith”…. And yes, I have faith, that when I release the ball over your head, the invisible and unexplained force of gravity will cause it to collide with your skull.
    You, on the other hand, will be praying to god to stop the ball, or prevent it from hitting you, based on your faith that god loves you, and that he answers prayers and is looking out or what is best for you.
    You see, there is a difference between reasonable faith and wishful thinking. If you don’t think so, lets set up the demonstration and see how it goes, ok?
    Looking forward to seeing a demonstration of just how strong your faith is…..

    “How can you prove to me that you keys will crank your car. OH it takes FAITH?”

    I always buy a car with a key that precisely fits the keyhole. Why should I have “faith” or “hope” that my key will work?
    I KNOW it will work.
    Do you, when cranking your car, try all the keys you have in the house, having faith one of them will work?
    I would not be surprised!

    You have just defined the formula of being a believer in god!
    Your prayers “work” according to the same principle!

    Idiocy!

    “Then I hope I will see it (sun) in the Morning.”

    Unlike you, I KNOW it.
    I learned enough in my life to KNOW that the sun can’t just “dissapear” (or explode, or …?).
    If somethng was wrong with the sun, scientist would have noticed it early enough to alarm people. I do NOT say people could DO something, but they would KNOW it.
    No hope, no “faith” necessary to anticipate such things.
    How old are you?
    Well, it is not important! My brother’s 6 years old grandson is reasoning much, much, much more logically than you do!

    “… and hope your battery is not dead then you turn it on and the car start, that is faith that is doing what you have faith (”believe”) in.”

    What sort of an idiot are you?

    I never HOPE my battery is not dead, because I kepp my cars well maintained, and I always KNOW it will work.

    I don’t need hope or faith, but I KNOW that I need a car service for my car.

    Idiot!

    “Lie, cheat, steal? Why? Is that all your are for.”

    Absolutely not!

    I never think about “what am I for”, but being alive in this world, and being a part of universe, makes me happy anyway.
    I do NOT lie, cheat, steal, kill, rape, …, ever.

    I am a joyful, yet responsible, hard working, also compassionate, human being.
    In my 70, expecting the end relatively soon, I am smiling, because I had a wonderful life (without lying, cheating, stealing, raping, killing), and I did my best for my family, for myself and for many other people. I did my best also for my planet, for example by saving energy, saving water, avoiding pollution, …

    Yet, I don’t believe in gods.

    Other than a fantasy that exists inside your empty head, what evidence do you have for another life after this one?

    To what “basic instructions” do you refer?

    Other than by rocket, how does one leave Earth?

    I saw a video by John Piper about why God allows the devil to mess things up. Why God allows evil. He said God will get more glory from taking the devil out after allowing him to kill and destroy; then he would if he took the devil out in the beginning. So allowing the evil and taking it out later brings God more glory than taking evil out from the beginning. I call that insane. So i guess we should not prevent evil from happening because preventing it we may be preventing God from getting glory. I think John Piper believes and teaches everything good and bad that happens brings glory to God.

    I asked mean christians why God allows evil. The answers were there are many good things we would never experience if bad things did not happen. God did not want puppets so he allowed people the freedom to do good or evil. We can’t know why everything happens. We just have to trust God.

    When shootings like the batman shooting and school shootings occur believers ask how could a loving God allow such evil? Good question. This loving God supposedly allows the evil for a good reason. Why allow the evil at all? If God is so powerful why allow the evil? And evil could only exist if God made for the possibility for evil. And why would an all knowing and loving God allow something to mess up the perfect creation? I am told because God wanted angels and people to have free will. So people suffer disease and evil because God wanted them to have free will? Children suffer from neglect and abuse because someone has the free will to abuse them. What kind of love from God is that? To allow it? I am told they will not get away with it because in the end they will be punished. I am told the greatest evil of all was what was done to Jesus. If we did not have free will, evil or disease we would not miss it. I don’t believe in a god who allows evil.

    I can’t explain why things happen. I just believe christians only have excuses.
