Pastor Jim Garlow #fundie huffingtonpost.com

A pastor at a California-based evangelical church offered up a bizarre suggestion for same-sex marriage supporters in a recent broadcast.

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Skyline Church Pastor Jim Garlow suggested that same-sex marriage supporters should relocate to homes with improper plumbing in a "Point Of View" radio program discussion, in which he also spoke about his participation in a recent Vatican summit.

"All the people who advocate for so-called same-sex marriage ought to have to live in homes in which the plumbers who built them, or the electricians who built them, didn't understand the difference between the male and female end of piping or plumbing or of electrical as well, and see how that works for them," he said.

He then added, "It doesn't work."

The comments are perhaps less surprising given Garlow's history. In 2013, he told the Christian Broadcasting Network that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) couples don't actually have "much interest in marriage."

"There isn’t that much interest in commitment and monogamy," Garlow, who was reportedly instrumental in organizing conservative religious groups to support California's Proposition 8, declared. "It isn’t there ... It’s attempting to force us to affirm a lifestyle."

Previously, he attacked President Barack Obama's policies on healthcare and marriage equality, and predicted that abortion clinics will become "killing center" museums that people will tour in a fashion similar to modern-day tours of Nazi concentration camps, reports Raw Story.

Earlier this year, he suggested that comedian Joan Rivers, who died in September, would go to hell because of her "potty mouth."

Pastor Steven Anderson #fundie huffingtonpost.com

An Arizona pastor is making headlines after claiming that AIDS would be eradicated if gays were "executed."

The New Civil Rights Movement first reported that Pastor Steven Anderson, who runs Tempe's Faithful Word Baptist Church, made the shocking claims during a sermon delivered Nov. 30.

Arguing that members of the gay community are "filled with disease because of the judgement of God," Anderson said, "Anybody who's a homo or bi -- it's all the same category -- sodomite is what the Bible would call them."

Citing Leviticus 18:22, he then added, "It was right there in the Bible all along ... if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant."

It isn't the first time that Anderson, who "holds no college degree but has well over 140 chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word" according to his church's website, has ruffled feathers.

Earlier this year, he argued that "remarriage is adultery," noting, "I don’t care if our society embraces divorce, and even Christians are getting divorced at the same rate as the world, I'm not gonna change!"

He has also argued in favor of keeping women silent in church.

"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection," he said in a sermon. "But I suffer not a woman to teach nor to usurp authority over the man."

Baptist Minister Ron Baity on a federal judge striking down gay marriage ban in North Carolina

“If you think for one skinny minute, God is going to stand idly by and allow this to go forward without repercussions, you better back up and rethink this situation,” Baity said in remarks transcribed by Raw Story. “I want you to understand, that is raw, pure blasphemy.”

Baity also drew comparisons between gay marriage and Sodom and Gomorrah, the cities destroyed by God in biblical stories.

"My friend, we are meriting, we are bringing the judgement of God on this nation as sure as Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed, don’t be surprised at the plagues. Don’t be surprised at the judgement of God," Baity said. “You think Ebola is bad now, just wait. If it’s not that, it’s going to be something else. My friends, I want you to understand, you can’t thumb your nose at God, and God turn his head away without God getting your attention.”

"All this business about goblins and jack-o'-lanterns all comes out of demonic rituals of the Druids and the people who lived in England at that particular time," Robertson said on the show.

He then suggested shifting the holiday toward a more Christian focus.

"I think churches can have Halloween parties," Robertson said. "You can bob for apples ... and turn it into a Christian festival, and that’s what we ought to do. We need to redeem these days, but that day was given over to Satanic things.”

Bryan Fischer #fundie huffingtonpost.com

It's been an incredible week for marriage equality in the U.S. (albeit not without a few setbacks), but one ultra-conservative pundit isn't having any of it.

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer called the U.S. Supreme Court's Oct. 6 decision to turn away same-sex marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, Right Wing Watch first reported.

Fischer, whose opposition to same-sex marriage and other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights is well-established, deemed the Supreme Court's decision "the de facto Roe vs. Wade of sodomy-based marriage" on his "Focal Point" radio show this week.

"It's going to be virtually impossible to stop this press and this push toward nationalizing, imposing on every state in the union, marriage that is based on the infamous crime against nature," he continued, before adding, "It's unconscionable, unconstitutional and completely, absolutely un-American."

In recent months, Fischer has slammed LGBT rights advocates as "belligerent" and "intolerant bullies" who represented a "tiny little minority" of the U.S. population.

He also denounced Burger King's "Proud Whopper" campaign, arguing that the fast food franchise's LGBT-friendly effort as a "bonehead move from a marketing standpoint."

"When people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex," Fischer noted at the time.

Jennette Hall #fundie huffingtonpost.com

A mother in Michigan took to Facebook last week to express her outrage over a 10th-grade school assignment that she felt promoted Islam.

In an initial post, Jennette Hall complained about a Jenison High School assignment that asked students to make a pamphlet about Islam. The post, which had been shared over 5,400 times as of Tuesday morning, said students were told the pamphlet would be used to "introduce Islam to 3rd graders."

Several days later, Hall clarified in another post that her daughter’s assignment asked her to create a pamphlet about Islam geared towards third-graders, but that students were not actually expected to hand the materials out to younger children.

“This assignment upset me because they are presenting Allah as the same God of the Christians and Jews. This paper, in my opinion, is promoting Islam by describing Allahs names as 'beautiful'. To me this is not simply factual like it should be,” Hall wrote about the assignment.

The school's principal, Brandon Graham, responded in his own Facebook post over the weekend, saying he wanted to correct "inaccurate information" about the assignment.

“While our high schoolers do study religions, the content is NOT presented to elementary students or used to proselytize in any way,” Graham wrote. “Furthermore, we *do indeed* teach Christianity along with other world religions.”

Graham further explained the assignment in an interview with a local Fox News affiliate.

“The assignment was to cover the five major world religions: The religions included Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam,” Graham said. “In our social studies classes, we certainly study all those religions to learn how a people, group and culture function. It helps us understand culture.”

But on Facebook, Hall noted that she still takes issue with the assignment, even though she has no problem with students studying the five major world religions.

“I was SHOCKED when my daughter showed me the pamphlet that she was required to make promoting Islam in a way 3rd graders could comprehend,” wrote Hall in her latest post. “As a mother who teaches her children that the One True Creator God is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, it made me sick to my stomach to see my daughter promoting another god (Allah) as the One True Creator on a pamphlet!”

Hall wrote on Facebook that she plans to meet with the school's principal about the issue.

Phil Robertson #fundie huffingtonpost.com

Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the "Duck Dynasty" reality TV show, says Islamic militants waging a campaign of war and terror in Syria and Iraq either need some Jesus or need to be killed.

"In this case, you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible. I'm not giving up on them, but I'm just saying either convert them or kill them," Robertson said on the Fox News show "Hannity" on Tuesday night. "One or the other."

Robertson compared ISIS to "street gangs, street thugs on steroids" and said "we're going to have to deal with this group way more harshly than we have up to this point."

"Because they're so harsh," host Sean Hannity added. "I know there are going to be people always looking to jump on you and say 'convert them or kill them,' and they're going to say 'there goes Phil Robertson again.' I know the media. I know how they act."

Robertson said his first choice is Jesus.

"I'd much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and point them to Jesus Christ," Robertson said. "However, if it's a gunfight and a gunfight alone, if that's what they're looking for, me personally, I am prepared for either one."

Robertson had a Bible with him on the set and quoted scripture throughout in the interview. However, it's not clear which passage he may have been referring to with his call for conversion or death.

ISIS militants have carried out forced conversions of their own while taking control of towns with non-Islamic populations and killing those who have refused. In some cases, women of other faiths have been ordered to not only convert to Islam but also leave their husbands and marry jihadi fighters.

Members of other faiths have also been fleeing from their homes as Islamic militants advance on their communities.

"Homosexual behavior is an abomination to God," he says in the clip. "When God sees it, it causes him to recoil."

He went on to note, "When we think about the actual act of homosexuality, we have exactly the same reaction. Most people think about that, they don't want to think about that, they don't want to visualize it because it is disgusting."

Rush Limbaugh #conspiracy huffingtonpost.com

Rush Limbaugh couldn't help himself on Thursday after news broke that a Malaysian Airlines jet had crashed in eastern Ukraine.

The radio show host called the disaster "an opportunity" for media outlets to distract viewers from the controversy surrounding President Obama and US border security. He suspected that CNN had already swept the immigration crisis under the rug and retreated back to its "wall-to-wall" coverage of the plane.

Limbaugh called the whole thing "very eery."

"Talk about an opportunity to abandon the bad Obama news at the border," he said. "I'm not suggesting anything other than how the media operates."

American Family Association #fundie huffingtonpost.com

Fundamentalist Christian group American Family Association is urging members not to accept any mail postmarked with the U.S. Postal Service’s newly released Harvey Milk stamp, the first U.S. stamp to feature an openly gay elected official.

“Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction,” an AFA press release said Wednesday. “He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.”

As one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States, Milk’s efforts to advance LGBT rights earned him the Medal of Freedom posthumously from President Barack Obama in 2009. The 2008 Academy Award-winning biopic "Milk” was also inspired by the icon.

The AFA, however, viewed the historic commemorative stamp as a way for “the radical homosexual lobby” to “undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps -- all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and diversity.”

“This is not diversity; this is perversity,” the release concluded.

The AFA, which has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center since 2010, advised anyone who receives mail with a Harvey Milk stamp to take the following actions:

1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write "Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.

Now, usually I associate the United States with being a positive influence on Africa ... you associate the United States with sending missionaries to Africa ... Instead what we have is the secretary of state going to Africa and educating Ugandans or saying he is going to send American scientists to Uganda to explain how normal homosexuality is. I mean, think about that. I mean, what must God think of our country? ... If now, rather than sending people to Uganda to explain better agricultural techniques ... we send scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is. It is just unbelievable what has become of our country.

Stormfront.org #racist huffingtonpost.com

Almost 100 Hate Crime Killings Linked To One Website: Report

A white supremacist site has blood on its hands, according to a new report.

Stormfront.org is linked to close to 100 killings in the last five years, the Southern Poverty Law Center found.

From the Guardian:

The White Nationalist web forum Stormfront.org says it promotes values of “the embattled white minority,” and its users include Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a 2011 massacre in Norway, and Wade Michael Page, who shot and killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012.

The SPLC said ten murderers had links to Stormfront.

"It’s pretty clear that websites like Stormfront are breeding grounds for people who are just enraged at their situation, it’s there that people find the reasons their lives aren’t as they had hoped and Stormfront helps them find the enemy that is standing in their way – whether it be Jews, African Americans, immigrants and so on,” Heidi Beirich, report author and a director at the SPLC’s Intelligence Project told the Guardian. “Unfortunately it’s not very surprising that people who live in this kind of stew of violent racism eventually pick up a gun and do something about it at some point.”

NBC News reports that Frazier Glenn Cross, the man accused of killing three people at two Jewish community sites in suburban Kansas City on April 13, was barred from Stormfront because of disagreements with the site's founder.

The report calls Stormfront the "murder capital of the Internet." SPLC's research shows the site typically only gets about 1,800 visits a day, half of which are people outside the U.S.

But the site has a core group of very active users, and Stormfront's "bias-related murder rate" accelerated significantly after Barack Obama became president, the report found.

Earlier this week, CNN reported that, in America, people who follow far-right wing ideologies have been responsible for more killings than Islamic extremists since September 11.

CNN notes that, according to a count by the New America Foundation, "right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11" whereas "terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11."

An anti-gay church in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood greeted passersby with a horrifying, homophobic message: “Jesus would stone homos.”

ATLAH Worldwide Missionary, led by Pastor James David Manning, posted the message on a sign outside its 123rd Street location. “Jesus would stone homos,” the message read, along with “Stoning is still the law” and Bible verses Matthew 5:17-19, Deuteronomy 17:5-7, Leviticus 20:13 and John 8:1-11.

The Leviticus passage, which is often cited in anti-gay rhetoric, says: “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

We've checked back here a few times today and find this worth repeating a third time to a few very hostile people who appear to have been on here all day -- we and thousands of other professionals around the globe have been working with women (and men) for decades now who are suffering terribly over the loss of their children to abortion. They require tendere care, support and love, for countless millions suffer the very real post-abortion-trama, p-a-syndrome, -stress, -depression, and the list goes on and on. They are usually self-destructive and self-loathing. The demographic is sweeping, it literally affects millions, numerous commit suicide. The women who lose their children to abortion are the second victim after the baby, the fathers the third, extended families suffer as well, and society, and thus. These are facts which have been well established for decades, though women's souls have been the same since the dawn of time. We need not debate here nor will we engage here with angry posters in moods to argue. Please be kind to one another, everybody. And remember that once conceived, the child is a living, growing human boy or girl ... there's no debate there, either, it is a scientific fact, for if it was not there would be no desire, fear, encouragement or demand to terminate the life in the first place.

In regards to a quiz about religious liberty

Corrections to this article Part I

A) I can’t really be married to a same sex person, for the same reason that I can’t flap my arms and fly. Nature makes some things have certain functions, and calls them birds. They are different than humans. No amount of saying you are a bird will make you one. Nature makes male and female animals function in certain ways. Those ways don’t work right unless one animal is female and one is male. No amount of saying that 2 animals of the same gender are the same as a male and female pair will make it so, even if the government says it is so. Governments can’t make 2 + 2 = 5 by saying so.

B). It is not about a religious belief. It is a fact of life like the birds and the bees. That’s just the way it works. Make up a new name for your clearly different thing, and we can all get along.

Mary Helen Sears #fundie huffingtonpost.com

A new candidate for a Michigan seat on the Republican National Committee wants gays "purged" from the GOP and claims homosexuality is a "perversion" created by Satan himself.

Mary Helen Sears of Houghton County in the state's Upper Peninsula, elected vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party's 1st District last year, posted a rant in April on the Schoolcraft County GOP website -- preceded by a warning asking readers to "please use your discretion before taking any decisions based on the information in this blog."

In the post, Sears claimed that homosexuals prey on children, argued that "Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit" and advocated that Republicans "as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent."

[...]

Sears, in her post on the Schoolcraft County GOP website, wrote that Communist college professors were indoctrinating young people and claimed that Charles Darwin's evolutionary theory "gave rise to Hitler’s Third Reich, Mussolini’s Italy and Stalin’s Russia."

"If the GOP continues down this trend and stand for perversions and the daily social fad ... The GOP will be truly dead and Satan will have had his day," Sears wrote.

Neither do you. You cannot know who is an atheist or not. We cannot prove who believes in a god (theist) or not (nontheist). We cannot prove who believes there is no god (atheist) or not (nonatheist). We can't read minds. You can't even prove it to yourself what YOU are or not. If you could prove it to yourself then you could prove it to me. Go ahead. How do you think anyone can read peoples minds? Magic? ESP? Pretending to know what you are talking about is not the same as knowing what you are talking about.

The governments intervention in the weather patterns began secretly with The Great Dust Bowl of the 30's. In collusion with tractor manufacturers and the glue and cosmetics industries this devious plan was hatched. President Roosevelt needed a boost to his socialist regime and a pretext to institute his "New Deal". First the farm machinery companies flooded the markets with cheap tractors and harvesters. The resulting deep plowing began in earnest and the deep rooted prairie grasses were destroyed. The Gmen disguised as oil prospectors cunningly fouled the atmosphere and the great drought began. Dust storms ensued bringing about the migration west. The influx of cheap labor to the salad bowl resulted in booming crops of veggies. This in turn created cheap produce and foodstuffs which gave rise to our present day super markets. Then the farmers were forced to sell their cattle to the government who in turn sold the livestock to the glue factories and lipstick companies. The New Deal was born, the glue cow made her rapid rise to fame, and the cosmetic industry received the impetus to change the appearance of every young teenager. God could take a break, Uncle Sammy is the job. This is the history of the world as I see it.

If you don't believe that weather can be manipulated then you probably believe that cloud seeding is just a "conspiracy theory". MSM media has now made Alex Jones their whipping boy because he exposes the lies of MSM I don't always agree with him and his voice gets irritating but to quote one of my few journalist heroes Greg Palast as far from a right wing journalist as you can get said "I love Alex Jones. If I were a woman, I'd appear on his show in my highest heels and shortest mini-skirt.Journalistically, Jones has iron balls." He also went on to write "Which is part of the reason Alex is such a hero in the forgotten America – he has the cojones to venture where the mainstream media fear to tread." I respect very few so-called journalists most of them repeat leaks from the White House or congress and call it news no investigation no follow up nothing but I do respect Greg Palast.

This is part of a continued “War on Christmas” and also upon the belief and value system of millions of Christian, Jewish and Muslim people who have faith in God. Religious persecution of the kind that similarly lead to the Holocaust began with small evil baby steps of ridicule and hatred of the religious beliefs of others.

There is not reason that Creation cannot be taught in public school as an alternative theory.

If Darwin knew about heredity, he would have never came up with the theory of evolution.

Rush Limbaugh #fundie huffingtonpost.com

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh burst into a hostile rant Wednesday, accusing Democrats of turning women into “nothing but abortion machines.”

Limbaugh -- the man who once suggested deterring abortion by requiring that it be carried out with a gun -- was responding to a caller’s advice on combating “liberal propaganda” that paints Republicans as anti-women.

“Look at what they [Democrats] are doing to women with their policies: They’re demeaning them, they’re turning them into nothing but abortion machines,” Limbaugh said. “There's so much that we could be doing to just fight back, but the Republican Party, even if they had all the money in the world right now, doesn’t seem inclined to do any of this.”

Needless to say, this isn't Limbaugh's first slam of Democrats' stance on women's rights. In 2012, he called Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” who wants “taxpayers to pay her to have sex” after she spoke out in defense of the Obama administration's rule requiring health insurance coverage of birth control.

A Virginia mother let her 7-year-old son wear a Ku Klux Klan costume this Halloween because, she insisted, it's a family tradition.

Jessica Black of Craigsville, Va., let her son, Jackson, dress as a Klansman with a floor-length white robe and full-faced white hood, according to local ABC affiliate WHSV. The outfit garnered media attention after a photo of the boy dressed in the KKK regalia was posted to the WHSV Facebook page. When Black was confronted by the news network, she defended her decision.

"My brother has [worn it] when he was in Kindergarten and when he was 13," Black said. She went on to claim there is nothing wrong with the costume or with the White Supremacist group, which she says still exists in their Virginia town. "It's supposed to be white with white, black with black, man with woman and all of that. That's what the KKK stands for."

Michele Bachmann #fundie huffingtonpost.com

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) believes that we're living in the End Times -- and she claims to have proof.

In an interview Saturday with Jan Markell on the Christian radio program "Understanding the Times," Bachmann accused President Barack Obama of giving aid to terrorists. This, she says, is solid evidence that we have entered the Last Days.

“President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, U.S. taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including al Qaeda.”

She continued:

This happened, and as of today, the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end time history.

As Right Wing Watch's Brian Tashman points out, Bachmann -- who has previously spoken of the second coming of Christ -- was stretching the truth in her accusations against Obama.

"The Minnesota congresswoman referred to a decision by the Obama administration to allow vetted Syrian rebels not affiliated with terrorist organizations to help them resist chemical weapons attacks, which was spurred by the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on civilians," Tashman wrote. "While the administration’s move is only related to non-lethal, defensive and protective aid, Bachmann falsely claimed that 'President Obama waived a ban on selling arms to terrorists.'"

Still, though Bachmann may, according to "Understanding the Times," feel that "the baton of global leadership has been passed by America to the Mullahs, the Marxist world, and other dark forces," she says she's still very upbeat about the whole situation.

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann said. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this: that these days would be as the days of Noah.”

Hitler outlaws abortion of GERMAN babies, but supported abortion of the "undermention". Nice try! Hitler, did support prayer BUT prayer to the PARTY, not God, as he planned to replace the idea of religion with the worship of the Party. Hitler did rebuild the Military, as part of the Government work program to provide jobs and lower unemployment. I also notice Obama has NOT cut the Military and now even wants to attack Syria which much like Poland has done NOTHING to warrant such and attack. The Nazi party was full of Homosexuals, many were killed in the Night of the Long knives, but they were active party members, and not ALL were sent to Camps, just those that questioned Hitler. Hitler took rights from all that opposed him not just those more to his left, just like you Democrats are trying to do now, with talk radio and Fox News.

So not you attempt to twist history did not bother me in the least. Oh FYI, I am a history teacher, your over matched.

What difference could it possibly make what one random collection of electrons does to another? He harbors some subjective notion that things ought not be done that way? Well tough darts.

Furthermore, if there is no such thing as free will, then what sense does it make to blame anyone for any action whatsoever? "I felt like it" or "I couldn't help myself" should be considered perfectly reasonable defenses to any "wrong-doing." In fact, the most sensible and logically consistent outgrowth of the atheist worldview should be permission to get for one's self whatever one's heart desires at any moment (assuming that you can get away with it). Why not have that affair? Why not take a few bucks from the Alzheimer victim's purse -- as it can not possibly have any meaning either way. Did not Richard Dawkins teach us that selfishness was built into our very genes? To live a "moral" life, the atheist must choose to live a willful illusion as the true nature of the world contains, as Dawkins suggests, "no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference." It boggles the mind how anyone with this worldview even bothers to get up in the morning only to suffer through another bleak and meaningless day. Freud summed this up well when he said, "the moment a man questions the meaning and value of life he is sick, since objectively neither has any existence."

In an '07 lecture at Sewanee University, Christopher Hitchens gave an oxymoronically entitled talk called "The Moral Necessity of Atheism." In it, he argued that racism was illogical due to our common "relationship to ground worms and other creatures." An original case for equality to be sure. In as much as we're all like earthworms we really ought to treat each other well. Strange. Is not Hitchens an ardent supporter of the tenets of Neo-Darwinism that necessitates the perpetual death struggle within all species at all times? Shouldn't he in fact believe the precise opposite of what he claims? Survival of the fittest does not suggest social harmony. Furthermore, doesn't Darwinism suggest that certain groups within a given population will develop beneficial mutations, essentially making them "better" than other groups? It would seem that racism would again be a natural conclusion of this worldview -- quite unlike the theistic approach which would suggest that people have intrinsic value do to their creation in the "image of God." (Hat tip: Moshe Averick, Nonsense of a High Order) And yet, like Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens is very often engaged in explaining "morality" to the world. What gives?

At the end of the day, the reason that I can agree with many of the moral assertions that these atheists make is because they are not truly outgrowths of their purported philosophies, but rather of mine. I would suspect that the great majority of the atheistic understanding of morality comes directly or indirectly from what is commonly referred to as the Judeo-Christian ethic. I have not yet found an atheist who is willing to follow his or her convictions through to their logical conclusions (outside of sociopaths like Jeffrey Dahmer who was at least honest enough to say, "I always believed the theory of evolution as truth that we all just came from the slime ... if a person doesn't think there is a God to be accountable to then what's the point of trying to modify your behavior to keep it within acceptable ranges?"

Through my private conversations with atheists, most of whom I would describe as very good people, I am becoming convinced that they don't really buy the party line when it comes to ethics. Like it or not, they seem to have an objective sense that certain things are "just wrong" and it's almost as if those things are built into the fabric of reality. Objective morality requires an absolute standard by which to judge it. The alternative is amorality. As Dr. Joel Marks said, "the long and short of it is that I became convinced that atheism implies amorality; and since I am an atheist, I must therefore embrace amorality..."

It's the weather. The animals don't like the cold, their African DNA isn't suited to running around outside in the cold. Now that the warm weather is here you can expect the packs to be roaming again. Crime in Chicago won't start falling until the left stops telling blacks that wealthy white people are to blame for their lousy prospects. If the left would explain that these mopes are poor because they dropped out of school or are 20 years old with 4 kids from 3 different absent fathers then the causes can start to be addressed. I guess it's much easier to blame the white guy who then becomes the target.

Of course if concealed carry becomes legal and some culling of the packs occurs, that would work also

As I've tried to inform you before, I don't understand how anyone can "hate" a homosexual. That's like hating the flu. It would be better if you could just take some medicine and hope it goes away. Still, it looks more like you suffer greatly from heterophobia, as anyone who has anything of a negative comment or appears "straight" to your way of thinking, you sooner or later redact logic and rely on labels, your favorites, “homophobe” and “bigot.” Even when the “shoe doesn’t fit.”

[On the Kentucky Board Of Education approving an increase in evolution and climate change taught in it´s schools; completely removing creationism.]

The people that I talk to around here don't believe in that junk that we csme from a bunch of monkeys. That Darwin guy said it was all just a theory and could never be proven. And just where is that missing link? Never been found and never will be.
Our summers around here have been cooler than many of the past, which were usually scorchers. Nobody around here is buying the global warming stuff. But we do believe in saving energy and our air around here is clean.
That school board needs to work on improving student behavior: too many students are cursing and even assaulting teachers. The schools have gone down the drain ever since the court took prayer out. No one can mention God in school nowadays without someone claiming they were offended and filing some kind of ridiculous lawsuit. That's what that school board needs to work on - put God back in school and you will see a world of difference. When I went to school they did not have to have police officers and metal detectors. The biggest problem was chewing gum.

The fact about w/eIfare is that Libs, U/rban and Hi/spanic single mothers and public employees are the problem with this Republic. They live off free stuff that working men buy for them and think there entitled.

Traditional Values #fundie huffingtonpost.com

“American from it's founding was established by founders that incorporated Judeo Christian values and principles; that are reflected in the fact that Sodomy was a serious felony in many American States until recent years. As our nation forsakes divine principles of sexual conduct our nation will experience ever greater spiraling of moral degradation as evidenced with much more frequent arrest of individuals for bestiality of sex with animals being frequently in the news, this is only the beginning of moral degradation in America any nation forsaking divine principles of moral conduct will see the destruction of their society for rebellion in the face of God's precepts unless vast numbers of Americans repent for promoting and accepting the Gay Agenda sure judgement is coming upon America. As the Scalia article mentioned Sodomy is still Sodomy; no secular laws alleviate punishment for practicing abhorrent forbidden sexual lifestyles that are unacceptable conduct under guidelines of a higher power. End Of The Story”

Logic and reason do not lead to good. They lead to whatever the objective or desire of the individual of the world permits it to be so. Universal good is for all and can only be found in the guidance of the divine. Lastly, because the divine exists and gives many evidence of that fact, religion will be here for as long as we are.

(Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing)

This "bombing" is pure propaganda and anyone susceptible to that will be likened as complicit or more than the Germans were during Hitler's day. The main stream news media is no longer a credible source for news. People need to unplug from the mind screwing and turn to alternative news sources, ones not driven by corporate profits. Who blindly believes something just because they saw it on CNN is shockingly disturbing . Sandy Hook woke me and my rage has not subsided over that lie. Today's technocrat, tomorrow's journalist.

(added some line breaks, it was all one loooong paragraph split up into two posts)

If I was to snap my fingers and have all the human bodies just disappear only to leave what is inside, you would be horrified at some of the 'beings' that are taking residents in those people. They are the spirits that God cursed to 'roam the earth'..the fallen angels that Genesis has written about..that 'come to earth and interbred with the human women'.

This also connects to those people that have claimed for many years that their are 'other beings' other than what is here on earth. They don't seem so 'weird' now do they?? Even the government is close to disclosing this information and just went before congress to have it opened up to the people!!

What I am trying to say here is that EVERY act that is committed against God takes another soul into bondage and unless they call out to be freed by God, they will be lost. Just look at the world today and tell me that there is nothing going on out there..that you haven't said 'what is wrong with the people out there'.

Next Time someone commits an horrendous act like the guy found 'eating someone's face off' and says that voices told him to do it, don't be so sure that he is lying or believe that he was on 'drugs'. There is sooooooo much that people aren't aware of and that is what is keeping them in chains

HuffPost, you forgot to mention Tiananmen Mothers and HRIC are US government mouth piece funded via National Endowment for Democracy grants.

For facts on what happened in 1989, I recommend "The Myth of Tiananmen and the Price of a Passive Press" from Columbia Journal Review. The fact no one died in Tiananmen Square that night is now further corroborated by US embassy wires released by Wikileaks, you should take a look.

[On a Cheerios advert with an interracial couple]

So there are no beautiful black mothers for this child in your Cheerios commercials. Amazing how this happens. The Cheerios-buying public may not like having interracial, immigration, integration, or gays shoved down their throats in any way, shape, or form. Another case of the media showing us how the USA should accept all that is being shown to us as "good". (We all know what a wonderful job media has done on the younger population in the USA by pushing all the filth and trash they can on tv and in movies. All the filth is made to look normal, but the reality is, it's not normal.) My option is, of course, not to watch any of this junk and I don't, and to not buy from the advertisers, and I don't.
Being PC is old now, and I want to be able to decide if I want to see gays, interracial, immigration, integration on my tv, and I still think I can decide for myself who or what I like. I can also decide what products are pushing my likes and dislikes. By the way we won't be shoving Cheerios down our throats either. Be aware that Cheerios is not the only company pushing this stuff and it's not the only company that I will not purchase their products.

[after a science teacher posts about trying to dissuade his students from the notion of UFOs, etc]

If you consider yourself to be a scientist, you should do some research before making judgements.

The evidence for the presence of intelligently controlled, arial vehicles that exceed existing technologies is overwhelming.

Scientists such as Michio Kaku, Astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper, and countless other scientists with credentials vastly beyond yours are convinced that we are being visited by beings from another civilization, and that some UFOs are craft belonging to these visitors.

Until you research the subject, you are doing your students a tremendous disservice by indoctrinating them with your own ill formed opinions.

Jason Richwine #racist huffingtonpost.com

A conservative researcher's 2009 dissertation, which argued that Hispanic immigrants to the U.S. have substantially lower IQs than whites, put one of the biggest opponents to an immigration reform bill in Congress on the defensive on Wednesday.

The dissertation by Jason Richwine, then a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University, argues that "[n]o one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against. From the perspective of Americans alive today, the low average IQ of Hispanics is effectively permanent."

[...]

On page 88 of his dissertation, Richwine included a section on "the growing Hispanic underclass." Heritage's paper takes the position that undocumented immigrants who are currently in the country would be a burden on the U.S. safety net and welfare programs if they were to be given citizenship.

An underclass, Richwine wrote, is "a socially isolated group of people for whom crime, welfare, labor force dropout, and illegitimacy are normal aspects of life." He argues that his data shows that "Hispanic immigrants come [to the U.S.] to work, but their children's labor force participation slips considerably."

"Superior performance on basic economic indicators is to be expected from later generations, who go to American schools, learn English, and become better acquainted with the culture," Richwine wrote in the dissertation. "Despite built-in advantages, too many Hispanic natives are not adhering to standards of behavior that separate middle and working class neighborhoods from the barrio."

"There can be little dispute that post 1965-immigration has brought a larger and increasingly visible Hispanic underclass to the United States, yet the underlying reasons for its existence cannot be understood without considering IQ," Richwine wrote.

[...]

Lower-IQ individuals, Richwine also wrote, are more likely to accept government handouts.

"When given the choice between a paycheck from a low-paying job and a welfare check, most intelligent people would realize that the welfare check offers them no potential for advancement. Low-IQ people do not internalize that fact nearly as well," he wrote.

Ann Coulter #fundie huffingtonpost.com

Rightwing pundit Ann Coulter seems to think freedom of religion is overrated.

Launching another in a long series of criticisms of immigration reform, Coulter went on an anti-Muslim tirade on conservative opinion show “Hannity” Monday night, saying the wife of dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsnarnaev should be imprisoned for wearing a Muslim veil.

“I don’t care if she knew about this,” Coulter told Sean Hannity, the host of the Fox News show. “She ought to be in prison for wearing a hijab.”

It is not illegal in the United States to wear hijabs. Nevertheless, Muslim women often face harassment for wearing the religious garment, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Katherine Russell, a Rhode Island native, converted to Islam and began wearing a hijab after meeting Tsnarnaev, according to Yahoo! Shine.

“This immigration policy of us assimilating immigrants into our culture isn’t really working,” Coulter added. “They’re assimilating us into their culture. Did she get a clitorectomy too?”
