Ideological Tolerance and Acceptance

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have a few hard line stances to which I am pretty much a hard stay.

Most people are cool with the difference of opinion.

Two groups who, ironically, preach tolerance/love/acceptance have been the ones most often and most likely to hold these opinions against me.

1. Fundamentalist Christians
2. Hard Left Liberals

I have a few people who hold a hardcore dislike for me or who love to “preach” their message but do everything that they can to NOT hear any other message.

All of these people fall into the category of Fundamentalist Christian or Hard Left Liberal.

For instance, I do not think that Palestine will ever be “democratic.”  Yet, there are a group of liberals whom I have known who attend rallies, meetings and such with the goal of a “free and democratic” Palestine.  When I tell them that this is impossible, they automatically think that I am for the status quo in Palestine and that I am pro everything Israel.  However, that could not be further from the truth.

I believe that Israel is the author of many of the woes of Palestine.  I believe that Israel has become an offensive fraud who preaches democracy, yet, oppresses a whole class of people based upon fear and greed.

I, also, believe that the Arab Nations share guilt in this endless conflict.  All of the Arabs.  Iraq, Saudi Arabia (most guilty and most hypocritical), Syria, Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Jordan and Palestine.  These people are as great a problem and sticking point as the Israelis.

That said, no Palestinian State that emerges at this time will be democratic.  It will be another Islamic Despotism based on the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Liberal fallacies and fantasies about freedom and democracy in the region are naught but dreamy intentions paving the way to hell for Arab Christians and Muslims in Palestine.

I also have my Fundie Christian detractors.  Those purveyors of hellfire and brimstone who “innocently” imply that I am on the path to hell and can’t quite understand how such a belief would offend anyone.   These people have told me countless times that morality can not exist without Christianity.  For them, there is no morality without Christ.

I, on the other hand, look at the history of Christianity and think that if that is morality, I’d rather be immoral.

When I refute their claims, they claim that I am blaspheming their religion.  They tell me that I am disrespecting their beliefs.  They tell me that I should be more tolerant.

That bewilders me.  The thought that I should be “tolerant” of a belief that condemns me to hell.  The idea that I should be more respectful of a religion that believes that I will burn for eternity because I do not pay lip service or believe in their system of intellectual and emotional servitude to a capricious deity who on the one hand orders genocide and on the other preaches faith, hope and love BUT only if you believe in him, his son and their plan for salvation.

If I deign not to believe, I shall burn in hell for eternity.

And I’m the disrespectful, intolerant one?

Inconceivable.

Yet, that I have the audacity to make it clear that I think Palestinian Democracy or Salvation at the hands of a vengeful, judgmental God or whatever pet project a Fundamentalist Christian or Hard Left Liberal might have is based on fallacy, I am the intolerant one.

These folks are absolutist.  There is no room for difference with these folks.  I will admit that I might be wrong.  I fully and freely admit that I do not know all.

But there is no room for doubt with these folks.  Therefore, I become the enemy.  The hated one.

They preach.  They give their story.  They’ll demand that you listen, that you give them your time.  When you attempt to give your side, they will not listen.  Their minds close as tightly as their eyes, ears and hearts.

And then I become the evil one.

Tolerance?  Acceptance?

For most of these people, these are mere tools with which they bash the opponent.  You are required to tolerate and accept their ideas.  They require that you dismiss yours.

BAD RELIGION

This goes out to all the fools who use their religions to spread hate and tales of HELL, Fire and Brimstone and Gehena.  To those who are intolerant.  To those who use religion as a tool of segregation and to those who refuse to accept others in all the varied cultures, creeds, sexes, races and beliefs that make this earth so wonderful.

 

 

(Spoken) The word of God it says, that we will recieve praise of God. God will begin to speak forth. Our righteousness is of Him, sayeth the Lord.

Get Back!

Can you feel I’m not like you anymore?
I can’t see, I can’t breathe!
See you quiver like the dogs on the streets.
Looking down on as I beat you.

It’s a bad religion
From a broken nation
It’s a contradiction

And I can’t take it anymore, Yeah!

Who’s to say I won’t like you anyway?
Take a deep breath I’m alive.
Can you hear me? I’m alive inside you.
Agony creeps up behind you.

[repeat chorus]

And I can’t take it any fuckin’ way!

[repeat chorus]

Can you feel it?
I’ve gotta live with it every day.
And I can’t take the pressure,
I’m goin’ insane. Now go away!
Go away!

(Spoken) Now if you start praising God, wherever you are. I don’t care where you are, I don’t care what’s happening, just begin to praise Him, begin to praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and worship Him

 

 

To those who use their religion as a personal philosophy of love and acceptance.  For you, may the Gods bring love, life and blessings of bountiful abundance.

The Christian Nation (American Sanctity)

People I know, they worried ’bout the country.

They say the homos and spics and niggers are tryna take over.  They gonna ruin America.

Those other folks.  They say that God gonna be killed by the fags and atheists.

They say those homos gonna ruin marriage.  Say life ain’t nevah goin’ be the same if two men marry each other.  Say it worse if two women get the sanctity of marriage.

They say marriage is sacred.  It’s a Christian right.  People that’s different.  They don’t get no marriage.  Say different people getting married gonna destroy marriage.

I keep thinkin’ about adultery, though.  Why homos get the blame for fuckin’ up what the heteros already fucked up.  A man and woman can get married.  One of them cheat on the other.  No one care.  They get divorce.  No one care.  Adultery destroyin’ marriage all over.  But it’s the homos who get the blame.

Huh?

And ain’t the sanctity o’ marriage already been ruined when we started lettin’ those darkies marry our pretty, pasty white gurlz back dere in the 70s.  I told y’all.  The world would go to shit when we let them black bucks marry our pristine white virgins.  Now we got the fags wantin’ to marry our strong white boys.  Life done got fucked up.  It’s all the darkies fault.

And to make matters worse…we got them MexiCANS!

The spics is comin’ up ta give us cheap labor.  Give us cheap prices.  Just like havin’ our own Chinks right here in America.  Sweat shops aren’t only for South America and Asia.  We like dem cheap prices, too.  Really like those cheap apples and bananas, iPods and iPads and such.

Don’t want to think about it, though.  Let ’em live in squalor.  Let ’em die of pneumonia.  They can stay illiterate.  We don’t want them around us.  Keep ’em in the fields.

But wait…

Why won’t they assimilate?  Why I gotta push “1” for English and Dos for Espanol?  This is America.  We speaks English.  Shit!  We don’t need them motherfuckin’ illegal bastards in our country.

They use our tax dollars.  They get free health care.  They go to our schools.  Fuck that.

Besides, we’re a Christian Nation.  We ain’t Catholic.

And them uppity ass Niggaz!  Who they think they are?  Got demselfs a Prez=OH-dent.  Now dey thinks dey special.  Like they gonna run somethin’.  And they still complainin’ that they don’t get treated right.

Shit.  They gotta know they place.

Back o’ da line, Nigger!  Back o’ da bus.

I’m the man.  Always gonna be da man.

Get yo ass to da back o’ da bus where you belong.  And take the fags and spics with ya.

Fuck!  What a crazy ass cracka gotta do ta get sum respect these days.

And what they got against Christmas anyhow???  Communist Bastards!!!

Then again.  I think about it.  I remember the Bible.  I remember Sunday School.  I remember these lines:

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
I remember that Jesus spoke them to the Disciples.  I remember him saying that this was the path to heaven.  People say that we are a Christian Nation.
We’re a Christian Nation?  Truly?

Atheists, Christians and Muslims

Learn to live with each other and accept each other or please just shut the fuck up!  As a person who thinks all of your belief systems or lackthereof is mere fantasy, scifi mumbo jumbo, I could care less which of you wins in the end.

As long as you leave me the fuck alone and let me live my life they way I see fit.  I don’t care how you do or do not worship.  Nor do I care how pathetically hypocritical you each live your beliefs and lives.


I’m a fairly vocal individual about my beliefs. I’ve rarely had anyone challenge me or attempt to do me harm because of them.   I’ve argued/debated with Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Mormons, Buddhists and a Zoroastrian or two. Though, I’ve never had a Jehovah’s Witness with the balls to stick around and discuss religion with me.

Where the fuck is all of this discrimination?

Maybe I’m just a dickhead who scares the shit out of people. Fuck, I don’t know. I’ve just never had anyone come at me and tell me that since I do not believe as they do that I can’t have this job or join in on this outing or this party or what have you. If they did, they’d feel my dissatisfaction immediately.

I don’t remember a situation in school where my beliefs really mattered for shit. We didn’t pray in school. When I was 5-12 in Elementary School, I vaguely remember reciting the Pledge of Allegiance out loud. Can’t remember when it stopped. I didn’t give a fuck about it.  Though, sometimes, it made me feel proudly patriotic and gave me a good positive vibe for the rest of the day.   I stood up and looked at all the cute girls around me and attempted to stifle yawns and keep the snot from rolling out of my nose and down my chin as I mouthed the words.

Where the fuck do all of these things happen?

Was I just lucky?

We had Black, White and Asian classmates at Franklin Elementary School. We had a kid named Israel and I thought it was a cool name because of it’s Biblical associations. Had a Black Girl named Jerry Butler. She had a guys name and we sometimes teased her because of it. We had a guy named Stacy and we teased him because he had a girls name.  We had a girl who always had boogers hanging from her nose and she liked to pick them and eat them. We had two really cute girls who were all the rave. We had one guy who smelled like poop whom we called “Poopy Pants Jones.” We had one gal who had buck teeth at whom we sometimes yelled “Barbara Ward…phuh phuh…Bugs Bunny….phuh phuh!!!”  (She grew up to be quite pretty, if I remember correctly.  Though, I’ve not seen most of these people in over two decades.)

We had a couple of girls and boys who were extremely bright and whom everyone always thought would go places….some did and one went exactly weird but followed his own path and is doing quite well.

I was a solitary little fucker who had enough friends but didn’t really study hard and was shy as ten motherfuckers so I wouldn’t participate in much because it freaked me out. I’m sure there were a few people like me. I’d do just well enough to get along and for people to leave me alone.

Most of us experienced a bully or two or a situation that was embarrassing or two or three or four experiences of that sort.

Shit like that.  Normal fuckin’ life situations.

None of us filed a fucking lawsuit. None of us committed suicide. None of us brought a fuckin’ gun to school and started shooting motherfucker’s whom we didn’t like or who had bullied us.  Though, now that I’m 210lbs and 6′ and can bench most than most fucks my age, there is one guy whom I’d like to go back and bitch slap.  Just for old times sake.

And I came from a family with an Alcoholic father. I moved something like 40 fuckin’ times from birth to HS grad. Damn near half of the kids from my youth had family problems ranging from abusive fathers to absentee parents to drunken alcoholic fathers.  We didn’t kill our teachers because of it or go postal or whine for two decades about it.  We drove the fuck on!

I still do not recall a single instance of anyone giving a fuck if I were an atheist or a Christian or a fuckin’ Muslim. Though, I do recall one Muslim family at Barrett Middle School or Ballard HS. I think they were immigrants from Indonesia.  And I thought they were vaguely interesting and exotic because of their religion.   I’ve always thought that Jehovah’s Witnesses were strange.  All secretive and whatnot.  But I didn’t unfriend Sam when I learned that he was one.  Hell, I grew up Pentecostle.  You want to talk about fuckin’ strange.  Folks runnin’ up and down the aisle like they’re possessed.  Yelling in fake languages.  “Hikama Hakama…seekama sockama!  YOU”RE HEALED!!!”

Jimmy Swaggert bopped my head so hard “healing” me that I thought it was gonna pop off and roll down the aisle like a bowlin’ ball.

When I lived in Atlanta for a few months one year. I think when I was 13 or 14, we moved into a place that had boatloads (pun intended) of immigrants from all over. We had Hindus, Muslims and fuckin’ everything else.

I don’t recall anyone really giving a fuck about anyone’s religion.

Why, over the past two decades, when we’re supposed to be such a fuckin’ tolerant goddamn society has this become such an issue?

It seems to me that people just want to feel special. So instead of just sucking it up when they say the Pledge of Allegiance and assigning their own meaning to “God” or saying “one Nation,……., indivisible”….now they want everyone to know and acknowledge that they’re fuckin’ special and that they believe or don’t believe this or that.

Who gives a fuck?

Suck it up.

A Manger scene at a Fire Station. I pass one up and I think; “Fuck! It’s already Christmas!” I don’t think; “Those fucking CHRISTIANS! They can’t get away with this! I’m filing a goddamn motherfuckin’ goddamn law suit!”

FUCK ME!

TOLERANCE MY ASS!!!!

INTOLERANCE IS WHAT THIS SHIT IS ALL ABOUT!

These fucks want everyone else to “tolerate” them as they go out of their way to be intolerable to everyone else.

FUCK ALL OF THESE BASTARdS!!!

MERRY FUCK YOU! ONE AND ALL!!!!

HAHAHAAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAH

God damn that felt good…

Swiss Vote Bans Muslim Minarets

https://i2.wp.com/www.spiegel.de/images/image-23345-panoV9free-sucr.jpg

GENEVA � Over 57 percent of Swiss voters on Sunday approved a blanket ban on the construction of Muslim minarets, according to official results posted by Swiss news agency ATS.

A final tally of 26 cantons indicates that 57.5 percent of the population have voted in favour of the ban on minarets — the turrets or towers attached on mosques from where Muslims are called to prayer.

Only four cantons rejected the proposal brought by Switzerland’s biggest party — the Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which claims that minarets symbolise a “political-religious claim to power.”

Honestly, I think that this should be the policy of the west until Muslim countries change their policies toward Churches and other religions/beliefs within their own countries.

They’ll complain, but, they haven’t a foot to stand on.  Especially the most vocal of the complainants such as Saudi Arabia.  The unholy House of Sa’ud rails against intolerance of Islam in other countries, yet, they are intolerant of any other religion or belief within Saudi Arabia–even forcing non-Muslim women to wear the hijab–and are the primary exporters of Wahhabism and Islamic Fundamentalism throughout the globe.

All religions are bi-polar.  At once espousing peace and war, intolerance and inclusiveness.  Islam is no worse a religion than any other in my opinion.  It’s leadership, though, leaves much to be desired.

https://i2.wp.com/i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/10/08/article-1219048-06C00F9A000005DC-817_468x631.jpg

The U.N. Human Rights Committee called the posters discriminatory and said Switzerland would violate international law if it bans minarets.

If this is the case, then why is Saudi Arabia not in violation of International law.  There are several Muslim countries with these restrictions against building religious structures.  Seems a bit of a double standard to me.  The UN should clean up the primary violators of international law before they go looking for villains in a country like Switzerland.

If a backlash against Islam is in the offing, much of the blame can and should be placed squarely on the shoulders of leadership of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Palestine and Syria.
