A great share to those that argue “Under God” is within the pledge.
You sicken me. To sit here and be American citizens and poison young children’s minds to grow up to be hateful and ugly adults is sickening. You are a cult. A brainwashing cult full of hate and bullying. To picket funerals of people that have died… is low. You may not agree with many individuals – but don’t be so heartless to harm those that did care for an individual. I’ve seen young children act more civil than you.
I as a person, care far too much about bigger issues in this world than a person’s private life. We have bigger issues that are more life threatening than if a man decides to marry a man he is in love with. Don’t agree with it? Don’t have a gay marriage. Don’t dictate the world.
I can agree to disagree with individuals that surround me. I cannot tell them what to do with their life. I am not in their shoes. I strongly believe that we as individuals have our own paths that we must follow.
You people are nothing but bullies. I feel sorry for you. To spend your life so hateful – never to sit back and enjoy a soothing rain. Or sit down and listen to people with different ideals to LEARN about this lovely world around you.
I’m going to hell according to you because I:
- Support Gay Marriage – why? It’s non of my business. I surely wouldn’t like it if people would try to harass me for being a straight woman.
- Support the right to abortion – there are reasons it happens. If you don’t agree with it, don’t get one. But don’t make women go into dangerous settings to get them on the black market.
- I love Heavy Metal – It is my “religion”.
- I left my church – I didn’t want to become a cruel human being, so I left the Catholic Church of which my family was taking part in. I turned out to be a very strong, tolerant, and big hearted young woman that cares for the world.
If that’s the case, I’m proud to go to hell for being a decent human being that doesn’t feel the need to harass the world because I don’t agree with them.
This is an article that I’ve stumbled upon this calm Wednesday afternoon. This isn’t the first case I’ve heard of this. A couple has lost a 2nd child to the angel of death because they used prayer to heal. Their church has a creepy slogan about using prayer in the name of Jesus to heal rather than seek medical attention.
Now, I’m not a fan of doctors. I think they give you pills just to have you react to the side effects to get on more etc. I am more in natural world remedies UNLESS it is something that actually needs emergency care!
With this form of religious extremism – It’s quite scary that many innocent lives are taken from this world.
A system of government in which priests rule in the name of God or a god.
I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, that I am against a Theocracy. I’m not just saying this as a judgmental, prick of an Atheist. I’m saying this because this form of government keeps people from being them. Takes away the beliefs of others. Squashes life itself. Look how many innocent lives were taken in the name of “GOD” whenever religion is in power!
I hate to talk about this subject because it’s not one I’m fond of. Mainly because it disgusts me how these bullies get away with their hatred because they wear the sign of the Cross.
I honestly, believe in this quote. I think people that follow religions are pushing things too far. Spirituality is respectful over religion. They are two different things in my eyes. Religions – Groups of people that get together to despise other humans for not loving their God. Spiritualists – Tolerance. Respect. Honor. No forceful motion to become them or follow their views. – Found Image on Facebook –
I found this quote and image on Facebook and thought I’d share it. I apologize to those that don’t like profanity. But, it’s definitely a quote to live by. Whether you believe in God or Not, you are responsible for your actions as a human being.
Whilst looking upon youtube, my boyfriend stumbled upon a YouTuber that was attempting to analyze a song by one of our favorite bands. Instead of doing a well thought out researched analysis, she started to take the words as a personal attack on herself and her religious belief. Instead of realizing that the song was telling a story. After all, music is a form of entertainment, and the best songs tell us a story to strike up emotions.
After she did 2 parts of her “analysis” and calling people who follow metal music demonic and brainwashed imbeciles, she made a reply video for those that enjoy the music. She called us Demons, that she was against our legion, and how we’ve got serious issues because we don’t follow the gospel. This is what I said as a reply to her video:
Hello. I must say that I watched your Venom video and all I have to say is Wow! For one, I am a fan of the music – Metal has helped me through a lot in my lifetime, more so than religious extremism that is keeping people divided and conquered. The only reason someone has a “Demon” in them is because the “Demon” is the troubles within themselves that they fail to admit or face. Blaming a song for telling a story or a genre of music and calling them a “legion” of demons is pretty asinine. Chill.
I honestly, don’t normally comment on people’s videos, but I felt the need to say something. In her reply she “analyzes” the Venom website and starts talking about the pentagrams and the imagery of the band. Religious pushers like this woman, clearly are why so many people don’t want to discuss the religion. The type of person to judge someone without knowing anything and “damn” them to hell.
What I don’t understand, is that in her video she claims that if people don’t like her page, they should get off and concentrate on their life. Why doesn’t she take her own advice and go her way in life? I am proud to be a “demon” in her eyes. And it’s her extremism that makes me appalled. She claims to be a person of “God” yet she will spit on fellow brothers and sisters. She doesn’t follow the number one rule “Treat others how you want to be treated.”
Extremism always makes me rant because I don’t like to see people around me hurt without any true reason. They aren’t harming anyone. I have friends that follow a faith that still listen to metal music. Extremism is what will kill this beautiful country & world. Over a belief! A belief that is supposed to bring people together and unite!
The other thing that I don’t understand – Christianity adopted the pagan holidays into their ways — so they spit in the world of the pagans. Saying we need to be burned at stake and such. Again – EXTREMISM! People have too much time on their hands to be so cruel to another human being. In my eyes, you don’t attack someone and bully them into your realm unless you have a serious mental issue.
Having a faith or not having the faith isn’t the issue. When people are left alone without politics or the religion topic, we actually come together well. We accept we’re all human and do what we need to do to be successful. When we don’t like someone in particular, we just don’t associate with them. We don’t start hate groups nor bully.
Extremism is a major issue not just in the USA, but around the world. And it’s “parent” if you will, is biased media that causes the people to be divided. We are just people of all walks of life. We have hearts, emotions, bones, and brains.
Metal music has helped me as a person. I enjoy the imagery of the stories that are deep within lyrical content that cause you to think. I am proud to be “demonic” if that’s what you will. But, I’ll be the first to help someone hurt in the street or in need of help while you’ll sit there judging from afar.
Extremism needs to stop. Or we’ll just end up causing our own demise.
