While I was playing my guitar today, I was watching TV and stumbled upon this Christian television channel. Instinctively, I flipped past it without second thought. But something made me go back (the equivalent of a digital double take, I suppose). On this program, the guy was essentially selling salvation. For a measly $1,000! This was called a "$1,000 seed". With this thousand dollars comes "God's protection" from Communism, The Obama Administration, Homosexual agendas, and a slew of other things.

Invoking the name of God to steal anything from anyone (whether it be money or even freedom) is an act so much more despicable than any of the undertakings that this man was trying to label as such. Preying on people who have nowhere else to turn in the name of God is what these people are doing. I am constantly disgusted by the pathetic level of xenophobia that the human race is capable of.

Anyone else feel the same.

Australian mountain range.
Oh, I wish I was on some
Australian mountain range.
I got no reason to be there, but I
Imagine it would be some kind of change."

I find it incomprehensible that some people are actually dumb enough to go for things like that. I mean, how dumb would you have to be??? I just can't even imagine how such a person rationalizes. Its truly remarkable.

Anyway, how is this xenophobic behavior??

As a Christian, I'm appalled when people try to sell salvation, so to speak. It's not something you can buy or earn. Even tithe is debatable. Some say you should tithe no matter what your financial status is and God will provide, though I'm kind of cheap and don't feel any less a Christian or less loved by God because I don't tithe at all.

Thats why I'm not religious.

I feel that no matter what religion, they all basically take advantage of people one way or another. Religion just offers people false hope or some sense that all the work they've done in their life meant for something. While people are too busy worrying about that **** and praying to various gods, they're missing out on a lot of enjoyable parts of life.

I think the problem you're having is you're trying to apply logic to Christianity, a religion based on a cosmic zombie

WTF? this is why people assume Christians are all retarded freaks.


and anyways, we needed protection from Bush, not Obama...

How do the shitty lyrics fit in with the rest of your post?


Anyway, if someone is stupid enough to pay $1000 for God's protection from the evil gay black Arab communists, they probably deserve it.

Holy polygamic shit, is that darkstar2466?


Where the heck have you been?




Polymagic shit indeed!

I've been busy with school, isolating myself from the internets, and doing outdoorsy things that make me happy. Lurking on UG this summer though, because I'm preparing for a computer graphics course that's programming intensive and I need to use the internets all the time.

And how are you sir? Long time no see!

Xenophobia is a fear or hatred of something foreign in nature. Or, the fear of something that you don't understand. My target of this statement is the homophobic tendencies that people on stations like this display. These people don't understand, so the try to destroy it like cavemen. I am an outspoken person for equal rights for everyone, and **** like this sickens me.

People disagree with certain beliefs, ideals, or concepts, it's the nature of the beast. This is why "equal rights" is a paradox, if you truly were for equal rights for everyone, you'd leave these people alone and let them revel in their ignorance as opposed to calling them cavemen and trying to alter or change their beliefs.

SORE SPOT!

joking.


I agree that people are never going to completely see eye-to-eye. However, when someones advocating the segregation of people based solely on the fact that they are scared of them, they should be stopped. (This was called the Civil Rights movement, and by your logic it should have never happened?)

That's awesome. I'm starting to compose a bunch of little segments. I need to sit down one day, record 20-30 of them, and start thinking about making songs.

I miss the good old days when the late night UGers would hijack threads to no end, and piss the night away blabbering on about funny pointless stuff.

Only because everyone would suck up to her, and a few regulars would stand back and post Picards.

The Assrammer incident was better though.

I would say the highlight of UG forums since I've been here was the development of the story of the guy who banged his girlfriend and her father put her in a mental hospital and such. That was pretty intense.

I almost remember that.


There was one thread about this dude who thought Zeus was telling him to murder his girlfriend. He was apparently on the run from the police

Best part was all the people seriously trying to help him.

This would be fine, if their beliefs and ignorance (interesting combination) didn't encroach on rights that people should actually have.
