Today’s Laugh 4-14-18



Transcript:

It could happen, and probably will.

"Languages that assign gender to nouns will convert them to neuter," the spectacle-wearing processor says, "In addition, anyone using the word 'gender' will be prosecuted."

On his right, a poster board commands that, in German, "der Mann" and "die Frau" should both be replaced with "das Person", in English, "girl" and "boy" should be replaced with "student", and, in Sweden, "he/she" should be replaced with "it".

On the professor's left, the Devil thinks, "I'm scraping the barrel here. The rapture has to be awfully close."

>if there should be any AOC at all

There shouldn’t.
The ancient laws were better:
If you raped a na’ar (child) who was still in her father’s house, you kept her and payed the father for her. No age of consent spoken of.

This also stopped fathers from entering a conspiracy to deny everyone young girls as brides (like what happened in America, by the will of the moronic white man)

Quote# 137830

What do Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, and all other countries that we've bombed all have in common?

The answer is that they'll all be fine in twenty years. Let me clarify what I mean by this. I don't mean that they'll be economically recovered. I don't mean that they won't have lost hundreds of thousands of people. I don't mean any of that. I mean that they'll have secured the existence of their people and a future for their children. The little things like individual lives and luxuries will be gone, but they aren't in danger of losing the things that really matter.

They'll be fine as we either run out of money to fund our military activity or once the boomers die and nobody votes for war anymore. They can all think to themselves: "We'll be okay once the Americans leave, maybe not me personally, but We will be." And they can know for certain that the US will leave. Will it be in five years? Ten? Twenty? I don't know, but we'll be gone soon enough. In the eyes of history, a few decades isn't an especially long time.

If we really wanted to win this war, we wouldn't be relying so much on our military. You know what we'd do? We'd be taking millions of ordinary American families and giving them incentives to go live in and develop these middle eastern nations. We'd build schools, wholesome communities, a police force, have kids, and so on. When would we leave? Never. That's how you win a war. Have you ever heard the meme "If not for X, we'd all be speaking German right now?" This is the type of thought behind that meme. Sometimes you can change demographics with things like genocide or forcing them off their land, but you need to change the demographics.

This is also why Mexico's mass immigration is an act of war. We don't have the luxury that the Syrians have of knowing that what really matters will be safe in America. We are not faced merely with loss of luxury, economy, infrastructure, slight underpopulation or whatever. We cannot think to ourselves that things will probably be okay after a few decades. Our worries are the big things, like the existence of our people and a future for our children, and that's because what we're facing is the fundamental essence of war: demographic change. Military activity is part of most wars, but it's not what war is about. War is about demographic change.

Churchers are not suppose to be paying taxes so [Kent] Hovind is an innocent man. Hovind did not steal the money and by mansions for himself like the TV preachers do. Hovind was trying to preach agianst evil men like PZ Myers. The devil did not like this so he used rich evil men and woman to lock Hovind away to shut him up.

One of the evil child molesting prosecutors of Hovind killed himself to avoid going to jail. So you see the people who went after him were wicked and wanted to stop him from telling the world Jesus is.


Then phoney christians did not come to Hovinds aid. TBN, Inspriation network, CBN, American center for law and justice, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, President Bush all turned theirs backs on Hovind because none of those people love Jesus.

(=Series of this fundies qoutes on this thread=)

1. "Yep and that is why Anglicans in Africa are being murdered and the Anglicans are running for their life in Africa. Yet the gay lobby will never admit that. They are causing a murder every five minutes in the name of political correctness"

2. "I don't hate anybody. Gays need to learn that not everything is about them. Their actions are causing murders and I think it would be a good time to tone their actions down. Why doesn't the gay lobby show any tolerance when it comes to others?"

3 "Yep, and they don't care how many people have or will get murdered as long as they get their way. Why nobody has any respect for them.

4. "The liberals in the Episcopal Church never address how many people are getting murdered in Africa. The Muslims kill them because they are afraid that the church will turn them gay. Gay rights over everything. That is all that matters and the gay lobby in the church has blood all over their hands. It is sad."

5. "No Harvey Milk ...its the truth and I don't attend a Westboro style church at all. I stay up on current events and read. The truth is that the gay lobby is causing thousand and thousands of murders every year in Africa and the Middle East but the media does not address it. If the gay lobby had an ounce of decency in them they would shut up. Gay lobby is covered in blood."

6. "if they would tone it down and go by the rules we would not have a problem. But instead they make up a false gospel and whine and it gets people killed left and right. The church will not survive. Simply not enough people to keep it up and the church will split in three years when the Episcopal Church gets tossed. Anglicans in Africa are tired of running for their lives and the gay lobby could care less as long as they get their way."

Quote# 137817

If enough Americans felt the way I do, we'd be able to run the wicked out of this nation! And a glorious day that would be! Thankfully (and I get goosebumps just thinking about it) the Lord is literarily coming back one day soon, and when He does the wicked are going to tremble as they face the reality of the Lake of Fire for all eternity. Carrie Underwood is headed for that Lake of Fire. Judas knew Jesus and went straight to Hell.

I say hooray to Jesus!!! Yeah Jesus!!! If you want to cheer and shout for lesbians and bisexuals, for God-haters and seducers, for blasphemers and adulterers, for sluts and sleazy singers, for drunkard actors and drug-addicted entertainers, for immoral sports athletes and rebels, for sicko comedians and low-life American Idols, for idolaters and sex-perverts—then you go right on ahead my friend, but Jesus Christ is coming back soon, and He's not in a good mood (I assure you) over the wickedness in the world today.

Hebrews 1:9 quotes Psalms 45:7 concerning Christ, “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” The Lord hates evil and so should we as Christians. Sadly, most professed Christians today are cowards, silent concerning public evils and abominations. Carrie Underwood is leading a generation of youth into sexual immorality and sin. This is not of God.

Underwood's fans may think she is humble, but she's arrogant and sinfully proud. Anytime we choose to place our self upon the throne of our life instead of God, it's only because we are sinfully proud. Underwood's videos are all sensual, looking at the camera like she wants to have sex with the viewer. That's exactly what they're intended to do. It's all part of the Communist moral subversion of America. Sadly, young people today think everything's a big joke. The laugh about preaching and morals. When 42 children mocked Elisha's bald head as the preacher, telling him to get lost, two female bears tore them up severely and no doubt many died (2nd Kings 2:23-24).

Only a fool mocks the things of Jesus Christ. Noah's sons backed toward their father, taking great caution to avoid looking upon his nakedness. This teaches us the proper attitude toward nakedness. For Carrie Underwood to flaunt her healthy body that God gave her, wearing the attire of a prostitute, gyrating in sexual positions for every lustful man and woman to sinfully commit adultery in their heart with—is wickedness beyond description.

First, your WikiPedia arcticle means absolutely nothing. Remember when like Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and then wait, suddenly they are a major ally of ours in the pacific. How did that's happen? Maybe because relationships and countries change.
Secondly, are you out of your mind? Please explain to me how Western Civilizarion and America was not based on Judeo Christian values. Obviously most of the founders were diest, but that does not mean that they were not majorly influenced by Judeo Christian values because it isn't obvious that they were. Here's a brief list of some of the values, please explain to me how the Consitution was not based off of these principles:
Dignity of Human Life
Traditional Family Values
Right to a God-Centered Education
A National Work Ethic
Common Decency
The Abrahamic Covenant: If people or a nation follows the Bible, they will be blessed by God
Personal Accountability
Freedoms coming from God and not government

Another example of David J Stewart’s sexist Protestant fundementalist heresy. He believes that his wife should have stayed with him even after he commited adultry and molested an underage girl.

If you saw my previous posts, here, you know I am a Traditionalist Catholic so you might be asking me about why I am condemning David J Stewart for his views on marriage, given the Catholic Church’s opposition to divorce.

Well the Catholic Church does indeed oppose divorce, but staying married =/= having to live together. If a wife has an abusive husband, she can leave him, take the kids, file a restraining order, and live far away, but still remain married to him. So domestic abuse can still be stopped without divorce.

EMPEROR JESUS CONSTANTINE WAS APOLLO MANIFEST IN THE FLESH!!

SAINT PAUL SAID THAT "ELOHIM WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH" (I TIMOTHY 3:16). LIKEWISE, SATAN
WAS ALSO MANIFEST IN THE FLESH IN THE PERSON OF EMPEROR JESUS CONSTANTINE!!
Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto. His name is spelled Apollon in Greek and it means DESTROYER or EXTERMINATOR:

And they (demons) had a king over them, who is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon, in Latin Exterminans (Apocalypse 9:11, Douay-Rheims Version).

Delphi in Greece was the HQ of Apollo worship, and "pilgrims" came from all over the world to have their futures foretold. Alexander the Great consulted the oracle before he set out to conquer the world.

The oracle of Apollo at Delphi was one of the most famous shrines of divination in the ancient world and it was a fantastic cash cow for the priests of Apollo.

To the great dismay of the priests, the oracle stopped working after the Resurrection of Christ from the dead.

Apollo is a copy of the Egyptian god Horus who was always depicted NAKED. Part of the worship of Horus and the golden calf included making people naked:

And when Moses saw that the people were naked (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies). Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said "Who is on JEHOVAH's side let him come unto me" (Exodus 32:25-26).

Horus, or Apollo worship, is indeed very ancient.

Apollo was the sun god and his devotees believed that he drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day.

December 25th was his birthday!

As the "patron god" of music, Apollo was depicted holding a musical instrument called a lyre.

Lucifer or Satan was in charge of the heavenly choir before he led the revolt against JEHOVAH....Apollyon is the only god with the same name in Greek and Latin. He had a twin sister named Artemis; who was called Isis in Egypt, and Diana in Roma.

Huehuehue

Shrimpy, I know you're reading this, and I know how much you love it when people tell you to "get help", makes you feel special doesn't it? I just want to say, I'm definitely not one of those people. I actively don't want you to get help. I can picture how much stress you put yourself through every, single, day. You're fucking balding because of it. I bet you toss and turn from sheer nausea every night, knowing how impotent you are, knowing that no matter how much you scream into the void, which you do all day every day, nobody will hear you. You really fucking believe HBomb stole that slogan from you, because you have nothing else going on in your life, and even that little thing is beyond the grasp of your meaty man-hands. I relish in how much undue stress you put yourself through every day, and I hope you keep going through it every day until you die at age 50 from sheer stress and not taking care of your bloated body. Nobody loves you, and it doesn't even matter if you "deserve" love or not as you keep saying. In the end, nobody, not a single fucking soul, cares about you long-term. You even had to make a sockpuppet on twitter because you don't have a single friend! We're the closest you'll ever get to someone caring about you, and even that isn't much, because most of us kind of forget you even exist after we're done reading the thread, so we can go on to read the next thread about the next generic moron that comes our way.

Shrimpy, you're not even sad. You're nothing. No matter how much you bluff about killing yourself, you are still nothing. You don't matter, you don't even exist. Nobody pays attention to you, and they never will. You should go to bed tonight with a new thought in your head. Not anger, or rage, or frustration, but instead despair. Absolute, incomprehensible despair, knowing literally nobody on this earth even cares about you. No one loves you, no one hates you, you simply don't matter.

But I know this won't phase you, because you need attention. All people do. And since nobody loves you, at least you can pretend people hate you. Screaming into the void, saying everyone hates you and you're an innocent victim, when nobody even follows you on twitter or twitch. This is the only way you know how to cope, the only thing you have to distract yourself from the crushing loneliness. I just wanna say again, I'm a huge fan, and I fucking love thinking about you withering in the despair of absolute solitude like this. I hope it lasts.

Any church with a woman in charge is of the Devil. It would be a cold day in Hell before I'd ever pastor any church with a woman on the board of directors. If that's your messed-up church, get right with God! Biblically, women are allowed to teach other women, be soul-winners, play piano, be a secretary, pray, fast and serve in the Church; but they are absolutely forbidden to have any position of authority over men, voice their opinions publicly in church matters, nor are they permitted to teach men the Word of God. New Testament churches are led by men, as they obey the Word of God; but satanic religious cults are led by women.

Is it OK to Divorce an Abusive Spouse?

Call me what you will, I just believe that God meant for two people to spend life together, for better or for worse. I heard a preacher one time telling childhood stories about his parents down in Tennessee. I was shocked at what I heard. One day his father ran around the corner of the barn and said, “Son, go get my shotgun, your mother just stabbed me!” They never divorced. Now I'm not justifying that kind of crazy behavior, but I will say this to those of you who have ears to hear—we've lost personal integrity in America! People used to have something that this weak-kneed generation just doesn't have today—CHARACTER!!!

Surely it can't be God's will for me to stay with a person who beats me up? I think that is entirely the wrong way to look at things. As Christians (I speak to saved people) we ought to have a determination in our heart to stay married through thick and thin, no matter matter. If you're not saved, then Satan is in control of your life, so I do not speak to you. Jesus Christ cannot become your Lord (Master) until you first receive Him as your personal Savior (John 1:12-14). The moment you get saved, Jesus automatically becomes your new Master instead of the Devil. You don't have to acknowledge Jesus as your Lord to be saved, for that would be adding human effort to the simple plan of salvation given in the Bible. 1st Timothy 4:10 says that Jesus is “the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” I love that Scripture! We have a good God ladies and gentlemen!

I love my mother and father, both born-again Christians, who have both gone onto to be with Jesus in Heaven. What a blessing to be with Jesus! I miss them dearly. But they had a rough marriage for 36-years. I could tell you hundreds of horror stories. I'd imagine every family has their share of dirty laundry, and I advise people to always keep their dirty-laundry at home where it belongs. What we need to do is place all that dirty laundry into Jesus' hands, and let Him deal with it—He'll cleanse all sin with His precious blood, and straighten everything all out! Jesus died on the cross so He could make everything right, because there's nothing that you nor I can do to straighten up the mess we've made out of life.

Is your life more resemblant of a train-wreck than a normal life? If so, you are in good company my friend. Our Savior uses the misfits, poor, ex-cons, failures, the destitute and broken-hearted, the lame, diseased, in debt, tired and weary souls. Where Did David Get His Mighty Men? (an awesome MP3 sermon, by Dr. Jack Hyles). God doesn't need our money, talents and education; but rather, he needs our heart to be humble in prayer, and obey to Him at all times as we forsake the sinful world and live for Jesus to get souls saved and .

In my experience there are very few true atheists, but rather anti-theists. Everyone knows that God exists. They can try to convince themselves that He doesn't because of their own personal stubborness or rebellion, but His Law is written on the heart of every man. Of course, they don't act like this and they will NEVER admit it, but they know God exists deep deep down, but they are just trying to ignore Him.

To me, the Gospel of John was vandalized by the liberal adulteress story, which is used today to oppose the death penalty, make light of promiscuity, downplay Hell, and undermine Christian teaching about tasking for and receiving forgiveness. The story pretends to be an eyewitness account, but was added long after all the eyewitnesses had died. No big deal: I'd do the Lord's work by "reverting" the vandalism.

Son comes home today and tells me that he watched "Stardust"
It is full of pagan rites and rituals, premarital sex, and lots of killing of animals to read their entrails. I asked if any adult watched the movie with them, and he said that the dad did(Sunday School teacher). I am so saddened....and ds has been crying since he came home....he says that he doesn't know what is really wrong...but the movie left him feeling horrible. What is with people? Are there no people left with the direction of the Holy Spirit to say..."THIS IS WRONG"?????????? BTW, my 11 yr old watched this, along with his 3 boys(11, 9, 7).

Quote# 106068

Pastor James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church in New York City says he is only controversial because he speaks the truth.

The eccentric pastor has made national headlines for a number of outrageous claims, including his belief that gay people are secretly adding human semen to coffee at Starbucks. In a recent interview with Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks, Manning refused to back down.

“Anytime anybody anywhere speaks the truth it becomes for those who oppose it controversial,” he said.

Kasparian noted that Manning had called for gay people to be stoned to death.

“I’m a preacher of the word of God,” he replied. “I’m not the one who wrote the scripture. Listen, Moses said that sodomites should be stoned. It’s right in the book of Leviticus. I’m not the writer of that. I’m just a preacher of it, so don’t blame me. If you want to be upset with somebody, be upset with Moses.”

Uygur asked Manning if he agreed with the views of Muslim extremists like the Islamic State jihadists, and the pastor agreed that he shared some beliefs with the radical groups.

Uygur also wondered why Manning had described drinking semen as “having a good time.”

“Well, you know, you are pushing me up against a corner here,” he responded. “A number of people think that semen tastes good. A number of people think that drinking semen is a good idea.”

“No, I don’t think that myself personally,” he insisted. “I’m just giving you the references of what other people say. You’ve got literally millions of people around the world that really think that the taste of semen is quite a flavor, and they seek it in the midst of other kinds of activities.”

Some “ingenious” individuals had decided to put semen in coffee lattes, he added, before admitting to having been tempted by the gay “lifestyle.”

Quote# 118598

It is time for the generations of men to grow up. Before you get upset at that statement, consider the evidence of what has happened to our understanding of masculinity.

First, men are now conditioned to live in a state of permanent adolescence. They are not raised, coached, mentored, and taught to be men. They are just “guys”. Women don’t want to marry a “guy” then want a man.

Second, men are told that their masculine traits are merely culturally created and therefore should be shed or being a man is all about selfish conquering of desires.
These problems are highlighted in two articles below:

Where Have the Good Men Gone? – The Wall Street Journal. A snip:

Not so long ago, the average American man in his 20s had achieved most of the milestones of adulthood: a high-school diploma, financial independence, marriage and children. Today, most men in their 20s hang out in a novel sort of limbo, a hybrid state of semi-hormonal adolescence and responsible self-reliance. This “pre-adulthood” has much to recommend it, especially for the college-educated. But it’s time to state what has become obvious to legions of frustrated young women: It doesn’t bring out the best in men.

What Porn Does To A Relationship:
What I would like for everyone to see is the devastating change brought to the marriage from pornography, from a woman’s viewpoint:

Not only was I shocked when he told me, I was also hurt, confused, scared, betrayed and angry. I felt like my world had just been turned upside down; my safety and security were crumbling away. His confession was overwhelming.Within minutes, the foundation of our marriage was shaken. The trust we had built was destroyed. I no longer felt safe or loved. I was suddenly bombarded with lies—he doesn’t find me attractive; it’s my fault he strayed; I’m not beautiful; I’m not sexy; I am a horrible wife; I’m a failure; he is stuck with me; he doesn’t love me … these seemed to instantly go from ridiculous to quite possibly true.

The results are the emasculation of men. To emasculate means – “to deprive a man of his male strength, role, etc.” or “to make something weaker or less effective.” This is certainly the result of men who fail to understand and properly live out true masculinity.

The idea of the full-grown man living as an adolescent guy, who is only out for himself, isn’t masculinity but a betrayal of what a man is supposed to be. Furthermore, porn twists a man into believing that he is masculine by conquering women for his sexual gratification. It isn’t being manly at all. Think of a man that you look up to. I am not talking about a movie star, musician, or athlete. I mean someone who is a real example of humble virtue. Someone who is a true leader of others. They certainly aren’t the kind of man who looks at porn, can’t hold down a job due to bad habits, is selfish, or immature.

We need to stand up to this corruption of masculinity and really live out . To be a real man is just what I posted a several years back – it is to respect, protect, love, and serve.

We must live this true calling of being a man out, model it for others, teach it to our children, and challenge others to live it out. We cannot sit back and allow the culture which turns men into pleasure-seeking, bumbling, incompetent fools do it for us. They see men, fathers, and husbands as incapable of real virtue.

These issues are not only killing masculinity, they are also killing femininity. Because only when masculinity is truly lived properly will femininity flourish.

So, where do we start? We start with discovering what a masculine man is NOT:

an emasculated ninny.
a testosterone infused sack of passions.
going to turn away from a challenge, just because it is difficult.

A masculine man is this ->

A man who desperately seeks to follow in the footsteps of THE MAN.
He will be courageous in the face of danger.
He will fight for and maintain self control.
He will put to death his lusts.
He will be in control of his emotions and yet not afraid of them.
He will find himself in losing himself.
He is humble, but sure of the gifts God has given him.
He is gentle when he should be and rough when necessary.
He is a man of strength of character and his word means something.
He says I am sorry, thank you, and please.
He fulfills his promises.
He isn’t ashamed of his Lord or either of his mothers.
He holds open doors, looks people in the eye, and has confidence in himself.
He will put life in the proper order – 1 – God; 2 – His wife (if he has one); 3 – His children (if he has them) 4 – Others; 5 – Himself

A real man isn’t afraid of his masculine traits, but embraces them as a gift from God. He doesn’t abuse them, but understands the way to use them in service of God and others.

It is time we men resurrect true masculinity. It is time for men to grow up.

Won't it be great when Obergefell v Hodges, Lawrence v Texas and Roe v Wade (and let's not forget Obamacare) will be repealed under a President Ted Cruz and you secular humanists will no longer have a monopoly on immoral legislation?

[Anders Breivik describing the torture he's undergoing and makes demands for better treatment]

The demands include better conditions for his daily walk and the right to communicate more freely with the outside world, which he argues are in line with European rights legislation.

He also demanded the replacement of a PlayStation 2 games console for a more recent PS3 "with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself" as well as a sofa or armchair instead of a "painful" chair.

"Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games. One example is "Rayman Revolution", a game aimed at three year olds," wrote the 35-year-old convicted killer.

Held apart from other prisoners since 2011 for security reasons, Breivik wrote that he has behaved in an "exemplary fashion" in prison, arguing that he has the right to a wider "selection of activities" than other inmates to compensate for his strict isolation.

Breivik also wants his standard weekly allowance of 300 kroner ($49, 36 euros) to be doubled, particularly to cover his postal charges for written correspondence.

...

Other demands include an end to daily physical searches at Ila prison, and access to a PC rather than to a "worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873".

"You've put me in hell ... and I won't manage to survive that long. You are killing me," he wrote to prison authorities in November, threatening a hunger strike and further right-wing extremist violence.

"If I die, all of Europe's right-wing extremists will know exactly who it was that tortured me to death ... That could have consequences for certain individuals in the short term but also when Norway is once again ruled by a facist regime in 13 to 40 years from now," he warned, calling himself a "political prisoner".

...

In the letter dated January 29 he said that since there has not been any real improvement in his prison conditions, a hunger strike would be "one of the only" options at his disposal.

"The hunger strike won't end until the Minister of Justice (Anders) Anundsen and the head of the KDI (the Norwegian Correctional Services) stop treating me worse than an animal," he said, adding that he would "soon" make public the starting date of his protest action.

...

In his letter Breivik attacks the Scandinvaian media which he accuses of complicity with the "torture" he is subjected to by not reporting his complaints.

He also refers to himself as a "human rights activist":

"You seem to think that we -- all human rights activists who fight for one fundamental human right (cultural self-determination) -- ... are Nazi monsters who should be pushed into suicide," he wrote.

Breivik's lawyers announced in January 2013 that their client had lodged a complaint over alleged "aggravated torture".

"These conditions have barely improved since," his lawyer Tord Jordet said Thursday, adding that he was nonetheless "keeping his spirits up."

Norwegian police told AFP that a response to that year-old complaint is due next week.

You are the one lost with no connection to reality sorien. Cognitive dissonance? That would be you and your ilk throughout history. Try recent history. Deaths in the millions due to atheism. No accountability. Just murder. Take margaret sanger. Ex catholic. Disciple of hitler and joseph mengela. Eugenics. Euthanasia. 50 million babies murdered in usa. 17 million of them minority babies. No problem right? "We don't want too many of those people" she said. Drain on society? Poor? Minorities? Make sure they don't breed. Old people? Drain on society. They lived long enough. Let them die. Spend money on young people. Let the sick old rich farts die. Let the sick old poor farts die. They have lived long enough right? And what about babies in the womb? Just tissue. Rip it out. They would probably have a crappy life with that uneducated and poor and crappy single mother. Not worth it. Rip that tissue out. No problem. Life is worthless. We are in power. We dictate what human life is worth. You get to live. You over there get to die. Atheism thinks this murderous way.
