Christians seem to hate as much or more than the best of em?

Making this thread makes me want to fucking puke.
Or take a gun to these haters.

I guess that makes me no better.

And is it weak of me to want to ride a rocket away from this place?

Why can’t we all just get along?

Why does God hate Hawaii and shrimp?

Maybe he doesn’t like Hawaii because of spam?

Leviticus 11:9-12 says:
9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

Deuteronomy 14:9-10 says:
9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.

Because it is known to be the most non religious state in U.S

tends to be rather unfortunate characteristic of a lot of religions, some form of extremism, i guess you can get it with any form of beliefs, but yeah the whole discrimination against other people just pisses me off, you don’t like the way they’re living there lives? fine but piss off about it, no one wants to here a bunch of discrimanatory propaganda, i dunno, its pretty sad that people are that stupid an unwilling to accept differences, etc. I find it no different than racism, its just sickining.

Exactly anyone who does not share there visions or beleif system they hate, the christians show the facts themselves. We hate shrimp because it does not have fins thus it is an abombination unto you, what the hell is that crap ? Thats about as close mindedly stupid you can get with one group of people. Whats really scary is the fact that George W. Bush is basically one of these people an extremist christian.

Grrrr people like that make me wish i was amish.

athiesm :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok I read all that, but why does God hate shrimp more than “God Hates Octopus, God Hates Mussels, God Hates Scallops, God Hates Squid, or God Hates Clams?”

Works for me!

I have no idea, maybe he hates them all equally but god couldn’t afford more than one domain on the subject of seacreatures with no fins is an abombination for you. Or maybe its because god got very ill after eating some shrimp and said…“I cast upon thee shrimp to be hated for all time”. And if you eat shrimp and are allergic to shrimp you are not under the gods protection when you eat shrimp. So many theories but in the end its best to be athiest

One must separate two issues here: The religious right trying to take over the government of the USA and christianity as a whole.

Christianity, like other religions, has some good basic values that help people figure out differences between good and bad. The way you paint all christians with the same brush is similar to saying that all muslims like to decapitate people. In Christianity, as in other religion, there is a spectrum of ways people express their faith. Unfortunately, some people’s way is to forget the original message of love and use the hate word more often. I think these people are seriously sick.

I am sure that most of the pics you posted can be traced back to a southern reverend (whom I forgot the name) who has been doing this kind of things with his followers for a long time. He is the one that said something about Canada being like hell because we allow same sex marriages in some provinces. I think he even burnt a Canadian flag.
What a whacko!

God hates making things in His Own Image that are so stupid it takes them 2,000 years to figure out red tide on their own, and even then they can’t figure out He said that at the time because he was talking to quasi-intelligent demi-monkeys and still worry about it.

God hates things so stupid they don’t remember that “God hates… and God tell us to kill…” are the pschological warnings that it’s time to take your brain to the tune-up specialists.

After trying the sea urchin sushi all I could thing of was, yes you can eat these, but why would you unless you were f***ing starving? I bet God thinks that rather than hates.

Good post, but a few of the pictures I had posted were from places like holland

Like that one for example, apparently it was at some fringe festival in holland, and there the obvious ones where they are obviously southern

The god hates you sodomites, etc is from philadelphia , maybe half or less can be tracked back to the man who you say burned the canadian flag.

But I dont really care about this one particular person, he as stated is obviously not the only wacko to parade around with signs like “god hates gays”. I apologize if I may have stated that I think religion is taking over the american government, that is not true but it is more less just having a man as awful as george bush who I have no doubts is a extreme christian in office. George bush doesn’t like iraq for possible various reasons like he wants their oil, he is a strong beleiver of christianity and all of their morals and the iraqis do not share those morals, etc.

I’m sure not all christians are indeed as hateful as most of the ones in the pictures, but the ones that are so hateful definatly leave you with the impression that maybe all christians are indeed as close minded as we are lead to ‘beleive’

Don’t apologize for that because you are right. The religious right is an extremely strong lobby in the states and they are the ones that re-elected Bush.

That’s why you yourself have to be open-minded and not generalize about christians or muslims or anyone else. If I may share some personal experience, my parents are church-going christians and they are not hateful people. They don’t agree with some of points of view like abortion but they absolutely don’t respect extreme anti-abortionists who stalk and harass doctors. They probably don’t understand and agree with homosexual lifestyle but one of their favorite and most respected relative is a gay man and they know about it.
So you see, it would be simple if everything was black and white but it isn’t. The world is colorful so nuance is a must.

And how sad it is, watching CNN and them showing the major uprise in lost jobs, and a graph showing the state of happiness or normality in america was higher before George Bushes first term. Definatly is odd how ignorant jesusland really is

Than your parents would infact be “True Christians”, I’m mostly talking about the extremist christians in this discussion though. Maybe I’ve been a bit to critical in saying that all christians are as extreme as “JESUSLAND” is, there are indeed true christians out there I am sure and most of them I’ve had the chance to meet in this small town. Unfortunatly there is always the christian group that seemd to beleive that bombing iraq is the right thing to do because George Bush says so and these are the groups I am mostly speaking of.

ps. yay this is the first religious thread that hasn’t actually turned into a flame war…yet

I could understand why god hates ciggarettes. They dont taste as good as cigars.

My favorite protest sign is still one from the 80’s. An anti-Socred rally was led by someone carrying a sign reading “Lesbian Mothers Against The Budget”. That had to be the Mother of All Protest Signs.

I think “Jesusland” would be a good name for a theme park!
Imagine some dreadful place your Mom&Dad drag you to, three weeks in the minivan and then you get to go on rides ‘Just strap yourself into the cross ma’am and hang on’…
Eat ‘treats’ like goat-milk ice cream, falafel, and elephant-ears shaped like bats sold as ‘manna’.
Imagine the midway: Look ma I won a doll. I got three money-changers with the BB gun. No look at me Mom, I split the loaf eighteen times and won these rosary beads…

The really ironic thing about the US government is the idea of ‘seperation of church and state’. In the US they are so supposudly worried about this that they are removing all religous symbols from any government building. Yet at the same time basing major national and international decisions on religous ideals. I think thats what the statement was intended to prevent, not the presense of symbols in government buildings. It’s pretty ridiculous really. They’re supposedly following the letter of the law and definately ignoring the intent of it.
