Disagreeing is insane: the one thing all fundies agree on

Quote# 125093

Atheists can't be blamed for their arrogance because atheism is nothing but a mental disorder . As a recent medical study in scientific American showed , atheists have trouble with teleological thoughts .

We have to be more compassionate and empathetic of atheists and instead push the government to fund more studies on the mental disorder of atheism in order to help them cope better and one day become normal human beings instead of the delusional lunatics they are today . We have to love them and be empathetic to their disorder.

Why are we caring towards people with other mental illnesses and intolerant of the mental disorder of atheism. Only with love , better medical diagnosis and better therapies can we help them become normal again .

This is not rocket science. Get the kid to disrobe, and it's quite obvious it's a girl, not a boy. Little children can easily distinguish between male and female.

When something looks fishy, the rule is: Follow the $$$$. There's a whole industry growing up around trannies. Not just the surgery, but lifelong addiction to hormones and (inevitably) lifelong "counseling" by so-called mental health professionals. Convince vulnerable and unhappy people that they are "really" the opposite sex, and you can get them hooked for life and watch the money roll in. What branch of medicine makes money off people who are healthy and satisfied with life? Plastic surgery makes a killing off people who are unhappy with their appearance. The tranny industry takes that even further, not just mutilating the physical body, but also pumping it full of drugs and sending the patient for counseling for the rest of his life. Capitalism is a great thing in itself, but this kind of nonsense should not be legal, and it would be an even worse crime to have this stuff paid for out of insurance. Making sane, healthy people pay for the mutilation of delusional individuals it not justice, it's a crime.

Stacies who come here and try to "help" is the equivalent of a CEO giving advice to a homeless guy on how to get a job

The CEO will not hire the homeless guy under any circumstance, but he will give him some bullshit cliche advice on how to get one(with some other company of course!)

Fuck you, Stacey. Fuck Chad too, but really FUCK you Stacey.

“Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’” he said. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”

Pressed on that point, Marshall shrugged.

“Just, like, homeless people. … I think just morally, spiritually, socially, [some people] just don’t want health care,” he said. “The Medicaid population, which is [on] a free credit card, as a group, do probably the least preventive medicine and taking care of themselves and eating healthy and exercising. And I’m not judging, I’m just saying socially that’s where they are. So there’s a group of people that even with unlimited access to health care are only going to use the emergency room when their arm is chopped off or when their pneumonia is so bad they get brought [into] the ER.”

Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) thinks that there is a segment of the population that doesn’t want health care and he doesn’t want to have to pay for them.

According to an interview with STAT News, the Kansas doctor explained that the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare helps the poor but most of those people just don’t want healthcare.

“Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’” he explained. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”

When pressed to clarify he simply “shrugged” and explained that the “Medicaid population” is on a “free credit card, as a group” and that those people don’t take care of themselves so they’ll end up costing taxpayers more money.

“So there’s a group of people that even with unlimited access to health care are only going to use the emergency room when their arm is chopped off or when their pneumonia is so bad they get brought [into] the ER,” he said.

For this reason, no one in poverty deserves health care.

As ThinkProgress pointed out, studies show that when people have access to health care they use it and the result is a healthier person.

“Two years after Medicaid coverage was expanded under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in their states, low-income adults in Kentucky and Arkansas received more primary and preventive care, made fewer emergency departments visits, and reported higher quality care and improved health compared with low-income adults in Texas, which did not expand Medicaid,” the study summary outlines.

Marshall is basing his information on his experience working as a doctor and organizing a Kansas hospital. Kansas didn’t start working on their Medicaid expansion proposals until last year. Nothing was ultimately decided, so the legislature pitched another bill in Jan. 2017. As a Kansas doctor and member of Congress’ Doctor Caucus, he’s never worked under the Medicaid expansion.

Women cause men to sin.

Jesus said a man who looks lustfully at a woman is guilty of sin. But if you think about it, its not always just the mans fault. 80% of the time, men are turned on by good looking women in skimpy revealing clothes and their long flowing hair. Nothing to be ashamed of, its just how man was designed. But the problem is when women deliberately dress in a way to show off their figures and bodies. This directly causes otherwise religious men to fall into temptation. It wouldnt have happened if women were covered properly.

Biblical women like Sarah, Rebecca, Zipporah, Mary etc. most definitely were completely covered and wore scarves over their heads. Why on earth should Christian women dress in jeans and low cut blouses exposing their figures to random strangers? So could a return to biblical standards of modesty reduce instances of temptation and sin? I strongly feel it would.

Quote# 125128

He doesn't send anyone to hell.

We all have sinned against our Holy and Righteous Creator. There are no other 'religions' that offer a way of redemption for us. Buddha doesn't offer a way to right a sin. And he doesn't take your sins for you. Same with Islam. Allah doesn't forgive sin or take your sin for you. Same with any other man made religion.

God made ONE WAY for your sins to be forgiven and that is by receiving the gift of life through Jesus Christ alone and picking up your cross and following Him.

People go to hell because they have sinned against a Holy and righteous Creator and if you go to hell, then you literally have to climb over Jesus Christ and step on His face to throw yourself in there.

'God is not who you think He is, God is Who He says He is."

"I tell you, My friends, do not dread and be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I will warn you whom you should fear: fear Him Who, after killing you, has power to hurl into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!"- Jesus Christ
(Luke 12:4-5)

"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to God the Father except through Me."-Jesus Christ

"When I pastured a certain church, a man didn't like the sermons I preached on Hell. He said, 'Preach about the loving and lowly Jesus'... I said, 'That's where I got my information about Hell.' "- Vince Havner

We are surrounded by the liberal, Godless and money-hungry newsmedia, whether it be newspapers, the television news networks, TV talk shows or the internet. The newsmedia prey upon broken families, the emotionally suffering and wrongdoers, for profit. Consequentially, the media have created a constant spirit of fear, distrust and paranoia in American society, neighbour against neighbour. In sharp contrast, the Word of God teaches us to love one another, to be kind, forgiving and gentle (Ephesians 4:30-31).

There are many wicked people who enjoy keeping other people's mistakes, faults and sins in the spotlight, especially if they are were once a celebrity, or a member of a well-known family, organization or church. The Bible teaches that love puts the past to rest, not throwing it in someone's face. Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” Of course, slanderers and critics will always try to justify their hypocrisy, claiming that the truth needs to be known, or any one of a hundred other lame excuses. As we read in Romans 2:1 from our text verse, God holds such critics “INEXCUSABLE,” because they are sinners too, just like the person(s) they are continually trying to destroy in their self-righteousness and hatred. Proverbs 10:12 says that HATRED STIRRETH UP STRIFES!!!

Proverbs 11:9, “An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” The Lord promises to judge each of us according to the SAME MEASURE that we judge others. Would you want God to focus on your sins for an extended time period, continually making you relive your mistakes, throwing your sins in your face for the rest of your life? How do you think God will judge such hypocrites in eternity, who took enjoyment from destroying and kicking others in the teeth continually, every time they tried to get back on the ladder after falling?

The institutions of maidenhood, marriage, and motherhood have not escaped the curse of madness. Most obviously, our nation has become psychotic on sexual topics, that is, the consensus opinion has suffered a total break with reality. A measure of this break can be seen in that even fundamental distinctions between male and female are abolished. These include questions of whether men can be brides and marrying other men, or use the women’s locker room in schools, or girls pretending to be boys can join the Boy Scouts.

Anyone who refers to reality, that is, any sane man saying a sane thing, on these topics is shouted down, vilified, demonized, and called phobic, homophobic or transphobic, that is, accused of having a psychopathological fear of homosexuals or transvestites.

The irony is that the insane call the sane insane. And that is insane.

Our nation’s current sexual psychoses spring from decades of neurotic decisions concerning abortion, contraception, and no-fault divorce. The pleasures of the marriage bed, which are quite clearly natural, pleasurable, and joyful, become unnatural when the intimacy of marriage is eroded. Prostitution reduces these sacred and intimate ecstasies to a commodity; Pornography makes the commodity public. Contraception so reduces the moral hazard of fathering a bastard that the merely prudential argument against out of wedlock copulation is muted. And no nation could so divorce itself from nature as to contemplate making it lawful to murder offspring in the womb unless a passion as strong as the sexual drive were behind it.

[...]

The oil pipeline was symbolic. It is meant to placate Gaia. The government funding for abortion is symbolic. It is meant to placate Moloch. The riots in the streets when bankers meet is symbolic. It is meant to deflect the cargo planes from the White Man to the Borneo Islanders. The protests by women dressed as their own genitalia is symbolic. It is for Lilith and Hecate. The love of Islamic terrorism in this generation, and the love of Soviet terrorism, mass killings, and orchestrated starvation in the last generation is symbolic. It is for Satan.

The biggest single cut proposed by the passback document comes from NOAA’s satellite division, known as the National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service, which includes a key repository of climate and environmental information, the National Centers for Environmental Information. Researchers there were behind a study suggesting that there has been no recent slowdown in the rate of climate change — research that drew the ire of Republicans in Congress.?

Another proposed cut would eliminate a $73 million program called Sea Grant, which supports coastal research conducted through 33 university programs across the country. That includes institutions in many swing states that went for President Trump, such as the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, the University of Florida and North Carolina State University.

I predicted a Trump victory based on just a handful of accurate and fairly sampled polls — such as Rasmussen. And also from speaking to a broad cross section of middle-class Americans. The people I spoke to were wildly supportive of Donald Trump. I knew most polls were wrong.

Today that same broad cross section of middle-class Americans is thrilled with Trump’s first three weeks. They think he’s fantastic. They think he’s the first politician who ever kept his word. Based on this response, he could be the most popular new president ever.

Now let’s look at a few facts from reliable polls.

A Feb. 10 Rasmussen Reports Daily Tracking Poll shows 53 percent of likely voters approve of President Trump.

Meanwhile:

— A strong majority approves of Trump’s temporary ban on refugees and visas from seven Muslim nations.

— Trump calls “radical Islamic terrorism” America’s No. 1 enemy. A strong majority agrees.

— A majority of voters predict Trump will be a better “jobs president” than Barack Obama.

— Forty-six percent of voters think the country is headed in the right direction, versus only 28 percent a year ago under Obama.

Morning Consult/Politico backs up Rasmussen. Its polling shows Trump’s travel ban is popular, with 55 percent of Americans approving and 38 percent against. The only Trump executive order more popular is the one defunding sanctuary cities. Americans support that idea by a landslide margin of 55-33.

But the media choose to showcase only protests against Trump. They deliver “fake news” by ignoring the “Silent Majority” and focusing only on a loud, radical minority. That’s the definition of “fake news.”

Larson says he doesn't think he would molest his own daughter but isn't sure, since he's "never been in that kind of situation before." He does, however, think it's OK for adults to engage in sexual acts with children, as long as there is what he refers to as "consent," although the age at which a child can "consent" to such activities depends on the child, he says, because some children are "precocious."

Any traumatic outcomes from these acts, he believes, are mostly the result of a child feeling betrayed or of the shame enforced by societal norms.

"I think society should ... leave it to individuals to experiment," he says. "That's the only way we'll gain more information and learn what the truth is."

...

"They should just leave it to natural selection to weed out the parents who will destroy their kids, rather than intervening...[F]or example, we won't need to worry about Casey Anthony passing on her infanticidal tendencies to her daughter, since her daughter is dead now."

Quote# 125110

Legalization of marital rape sends an important message, which is that frigidity is not a behavior that a husband need tolerate from his wife. The point is not that he should actually rape her, but that he has a right to if he wants to, since she is his property, given (or sold) to him by her father. This can help instill a proper attitude of submission, which will ultimately benefit her, since women like to be dominated. Not only that, but women will probably have an easier time getting men to want to marry them if they say, "Look honey, once we get married, you won't have to worry that I'll deny you sex, because you can just rape me whenever you want, and the law will allow it."

Men want to own women. But this isn't bad for women, because good men tend to feel a strong sense of moral obligation toward their wives. A typical man, especially after he has had kids with his wife, will not want to divorce her, even if she is refusing sex after she promised she wouldn't do that.

So the typical feminist argument, "If she's not having sex with you, you can just divorce her," falls flat. Feminists who say that are putting themselves in men's shoes and thinking of what they would do if their needs weren't being met in a marriage, but men's sense of love and loyalty is typically less opportunistic than women's and their integrity is more to principles than to feelings. He will generally feel duty-bound to stay, even if he has other options. These days, men are realizing that marriage imposes obligations on them without offering them much in the way of benefits, so they are opting not to marry, with the result being that now there are bastard children running around everywhere.

One hypothesis (mentioned in A Natural History of Rape) for why rape evolved as a method of mating is that it helps ensure that women only reproduce with the strongest men, i.e. those who are capable of raping them. Therefore, women have been biologically programmed to sometimes often token resistance to sex (much like a shit test) as a way of seeing whether the man is strong enough to persist. If the man fails or is deterred by her cries of "No," "Stop," etc., this of course leads to her feeling frustrated at the man's weakness, and she then craves a real man who will dominate her the way she wants and expects. Rape is flattering to women, because it tells them that there is a man who wants her badly enough to force himself upon her if need be.

To quote Illimitable Men Maxim #122, "Women loathe being sexual objectified by lesser men, crafting their disgust for the unworthy into a veneer of moral superiority. Yet hidden within this guise of upright disgust is a depraved desire to be objectified by powerful men. Weak men get nothing, powerful men get perversions." Or as Sanchit Garg writes:

Even if we criminalize rapes, unlike normal criminal cases, marital rapes will be the most difficult cases to prove the alleged charges. It will be the word of the wife against the word of the husband. Naturally, there will be no eye witnesses or even medical proof of the same. The factum of sex between the two can never be denied, the semen samples or the pubic hair or the factum of any other medico-legal evidence can be naturally inferred to. Even, if the wife pleads injury to her private parts, the defence can attribute it to a wild intimate night.
In my opinion, the prosecution of marital rapes will be the most difficult of cases to prove and most of them will end in an acquittal. The prospects of Marital Rapes being used as a sword by disgruntled wives are also quite likely happen.

Rape legalization could even lead to better sex, as being raped provokes an emotional response in women, causing chemicals to flow that produce arousal and, ultimately, orgasm (which could explain the popularity of rape fantasy fiction such as Fifty Shades of Grey). It has been noted, "First of all, orgasms in women being raped are not frequent, but they are not uncommon either. In the study you cite, about 5% to 21% of women interviewed in the studies surveyed reported having an orgasm when they were raped. Researchers have hypothesized that the actual figure is probably a bit higher in reality due to victims being understandably embarrassed both by the rape and by having achieved an orgasm during unwanted, forced sexual relations. Around 20% seems to be a likely, real-word figure."

This is unsurprising, since it has often been noted that the use of male strength in the bedroom can give women vaginal tingles.[1] Tingles generally tend to be caused when a man behaves in a way that shows masculinity and causes a woman to feel a range of emotions. A woman's experience of being raped by her husband might meet that description. It's certainly unlikely to be boring.

As we all know, a young woman will often prefer to open her legs to an exciting badboy rather than a boring niceguy. Women will even watch horror films because they love to feel the roller coaster of emotions of fear, relief, surprise, etc. Novels like The Fountainhead feature heroines who deliberately put themselves in situations that invite rape, and then at the moment when it's about to happen, they hope desperately that the man won't weaken and ask permission. Tuthmosis Sonofra notes, with regard to his pickups, "I'm shocked at how consistently girls will comment on the 'danger' of going home 'with a stranger.' It's like they're reading from a script. I had, literally, three girls over the course of the past 10 days say the same, identical shit. Of course, girls love 'dangerous situations' so play on that."

In addition, as I noted in my statement with regard to keeping abortion legal, we need to rely somewhat on natural selection to get rid of parental characteristics that would tend to drive them to destroy their own offspring. The state should not forcibly interfere with that natural weeding-out process. As Murray Rothbard pointed out, the state should not even criminalize child neglect, since the child has no rightful claim to the parent's resources.

Quote# 125108

Whitney Cummings once said, "Porn isn't bad. Men watching porn is like women watching The Food Network: we're both watching things we're never going to freaking do." Feminists led the efforts to ban child pornography in the late 1970s, and will continue trying to demonize men for indulging their curiosity in, or getting aroused by, "deviant" forms of sexuality, and for exploiting women, even as women (especially feminist women, who often are excited by rape fantasies — not that there's anything wrong with that) indulge in their own violent, sadomasochistic pornography by reading Fifty Shades of Grey. It's hypocritical and a double standard.

Feminists have even gotten porn involving 17-year-old girls declared "child pornography," despite the fact that these girls would, until very recently, have been considered nubile (i.e. of marriageable age), rather than children. It is just another way of shaming men for having normal sexual desires. Young women are at the peak of their fertile years, so it is natural for men to want to have sex with them, and understandable that some men would resort to pornography as a more easily obtainable substitute.

In a way, it shouldn't be all that surprising that some men want to have sex even with girls who haven't reached puberty. There are, after all, men who will have sex with women (e.g. the wife they've been married to for 30 years) who are so old as to be infertile, so why wouldn't there be men who would have sex with girls who are too young to be fertile? It's been theorized that sex serves a number of purposes besides reproduction (for example, giving couples another reason to stay together to raise their children). It doesn't seem all that farfetched that, in the race among men to be the first to get the youngest and freshest girls as they come on the market, some men would end up going so far as to go for prepubescent girls, erring on the side of too young rather than too old.

There's also Rule 34, "If it exists, there's porn of it"; for whatever reason, the human mind seems to have a limitless ability to fetishize anything. "Normal" people download videos of bukkake and Roman showers, yet somehow child porn is deviant? These distinctions are political, not scientific. As Darian Meacham's Medicine and Society, New Perspectives in Continental Philosophy notes, "Immediately after the APA board's decision to delete homosexuality from their manual, Irving Bieber publicly asked Spitzer whether he would consider deleting other sexual deviations from DSM, too. Spitzer answered: 'I haven't given much thought to [these problems] and perhaps that is because the voyeurs and the fetishists have not yet organized themselves and forced us to do that'."

It also shouldn't be too surprising that some men are attracted to young boys. According to the Super Gay Uncles Theory, one reason for homosexuality's existence might be so that there are extra men around to provide nurturance to children in their extended families. Wouldn't pedophilic desires for boys tend to create an incentive to provide even more nurturance, as a form of child grooming (which some pederasts have likened to heterosexual dating, in which the wealthier older man pays for the dates)? This is the basic thrust of the classic essay, The Descent of Chester.

I strongly suspect that if incestuous marriage had been legal and socially accepted, Ivanka would be the de jure, rather than merely de facto, First Lady.

Legalization of incestuous marriage (by completely repealing Code of Virginia § 20-38.1) will benefit families by expanding the pool of available mates to include those within the family itself. One difficulty that sometimes arises with finding a suitable mate is information asymmetry, in which one does not know enough about potential mates to make a good decision. In familial relationships, they mate tends to be more of a known quantity.

A commonly-cited disadvantage of incest is the potential for birth defects in their offspring, but this is usually not a major problem if the two are genetically distant enough (e.g. father and daughter as opposed to brother and sister). The major problem arises if inbreeding is carried on for too many generations.

In the manosphere, it is sometimes said that young women desire a father figure (even to the point of looking for a man who will spank them and/or have them call him "daddy"), and that because of sexual differences in emotional attachment, the only truly sacrificial love that a man can expect from a woman is from his mother. It also seems logical that a parent might feel some attraction for a child who resembles the person they fell in love with and had children with. The potential to have incestuous relationships down the road could provide an incentive to produce offspring and to care for them as an investment in one's own sexual future.

A father will tend to be significantly older than his daughter, and therefore will be more likely to be a better provider, and less likely to beat her, than a man her own age.

As always, we can rely on natural selection to ensure that people have no greater tendency toward incest (or any other activity) than would be optimal.

Well, this latest incident has a black athlete falsely accused of sexually assaulting his white girlfriend and here is a new twist to the story — she has always asserted that she was never assaulted or raped by this guy and even slept with him and proactively kept sending him messages of support once the investigation began!!!! So who are the villains of this piece? The administrator and some idiot fellow trainer/student in the alleged victim’s training program took it upon themselves to declare that she was assaulted.

You cite two cases as reported by the same libertarian website, unrelated in every way except they involve sex and college students. In one, a man is, apparently, wrongly accused of assault. In the other, a man is, apparently, the victim of assault.

But your first sentence tries to link them by simply calling both men “victims” and intimating this is some ominous, nascent trend that hasn’t ruined the lives of many men “yet” — and when it does, it will somehow be the fault of “overreaching leftists.”

The problem of men on campus being falsely accused of sexual assault is dwarfed by the problem of men on campus not being punished for sexual assault, and the problem of men on campus being sexually assaulted by women is insignificant compared to the problem of women on campus being sexually assaulted by men.

This attempt to construct a level of equivalence between injustices done to men with injustices done to women as regards to rape is disgusting.
I find you disgusting to accept any level of sexual assault against anybody, including men. Who gave you the right to decide who’s rape is significant enough? I don’t agree with a lot of what the diarist wrote, but your sexist response to false accusations and male rape is absolutely deplorable.

If you get raped do I get to decide whether your trauma is significant?

Earlier this week, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau streamed a video on Periscope in which he claimed that the mistake in announcing the best picture winner at the Academy Awards last weekend was an example of God making the enemies of President Trump “look foolish.”

“A lot of us don’t watch the Academy Awards because it’s so irritating with the politics,” Wallnau said. “All night they’re bashing Trump, all night they set up this imaginary Donald Trump figure and beat him like a pinata. And then when it comes time for them to do the best picture, they screw it up, they have the wrong envelope. Hollywood evidently knows enough to lecture the president and the rest of the country on what the president’s policy should be, but they don’t know enough to find their own envelopes.”

“All night long they’re beating up on Donald Trump and the headlines the next day [are] how screwed up the Academy Awards was,” Wallnau continued. “I don’t know how long this grace is going to be on Donald Trump but, I’ll tell you what, there’s an anointing on that guy and God literally makes his enemies look foolish.”
