I’m choosing to believe that joker’s rant was some sort of meta-satire or something. We’ve all been had.
This. This right here. Really? I go into a library and make a joke by putting all the bibles in the fiction section. They don’t see this as satire. I wear a shirt with an upside down cross on it, priests stop me in the streets and try to make me repent. They don’t see my shirt as satire. I make jokes about Atheism and/or Christianity all the time, you Christians don’t see it as satire. So don’t you dare try to make it okay to joke about or nonreligious religion and then turn around and throw fits when we do the same to yours.
For instance, I can GUARANTEE I will have more Christians telling me that this blog is a no-no than Christian blogs have Atheists complaining about their blogs. And it’s funny because I wouldn’t be surprised if I get anon Christian haters. I mean, c’mon. All that makes me do is laugh at how corrupt you guys really are. Judging goes against your religion and so does lying. And technically, not showing your face is sorta lying. And being a pussy. Would Jesus be a pussy? Did he hide his face? LMFAO. Exactly.
I think you missed something. I think you missed a lot.
I don’t know if I’ve seen this before, but I just read it as though it was my first time seeing it, and I could cry.
It’s like my entire brain is sobbing.
IF GOD WAS REAL COULD HE CREATE A PALM NOT EVEN HE COULD FACE?
I don’t think most of this happened to OP to be perfectly honest. Atheism has somehow become the mid-twenties white kid version of being black. It’s this way for well-off pretentious assholes to pretend they’re being oppressed.
Let’s be real fucking honest here, when is the last time someone gave you(the atheist in question) ANY amount of shit for being atheist (I leave it in lower case because FUCK YOU, you know why)? Seriously, where are these super oppressive religious masses where you live? Do they have meetings in your house (if they do I’m sorry)? Do they come up to you on the street? Has it ever been more than an “I shoulda said…” situation? I don’t think most of these stories are true. I think they exist mostly in your head. I think “they” are the sum of all the shitty things you see on the news and in your life, but still they are passive and never actually have anything to do with YOU, and yet you try to make it somehow related to your boring, shit-ass life.
Now I’m not saying these people don’t represent an oppressive, evil fucking group. Their insane ramblings bring to the national stage absolutely relevant social issues you SHOULD be pissed off about and I’m not defending the religious right, but this trend of pretending atheism is this horrifically oppressed sect of the populace is ridiculous and I think downright insulting to the (several) groups of people in this country facing real, actual oppression every single day.
Okay, it looks like someone needs to step in and clear the air here. I used to be an Atheist, then I was a Christian, and now I’m an Atheist, so I think I have a pretty good idea of where everybody’s coming from. Now, I’m not sure what satire is so I can’t comment on the image at hand, but I do think that this “ranting joker” needs to watch his mouth or his typing fingers or whatever and JUST FUCKING STOP IT THAT’S WHAT I MEAN! Like I said, I used to be a Christian and they’re not an “evil fucking group” and maybe YOU’RE evil, guy. You sure do swear a lot, and you’re really mean saying how OP has a shit-ass life and stuff so you’re terrible. Like I said, I used to be and currently am an Atheist, and you say Atheists aren’t oppressed, but it sounds an awful lot like you’re oppressing him and also oppressing other people in your life too probably so I just think you should shut the fuck up and not be mean or oppress anyone and just STOP IT RIGHT NOW! And you should stop it with everyone, not just Christians and atheists (I decided not to capitalize it because atheism isn’t a religion or any other proper noun). I mean, the only thing OP said that was wrong is how not showing your face is “sorta lying”. That would only be true if you asked to see someone’s face and they told you they didn’t have one. Swing and a miss, OP! But all the other stuff was home runs, cause you’re right Jesus wasn’t a pussy. But seriously, other guy, just shut the fuck up and calm down you just make me so mad!!!!1!!!! Ugh hold on I have to pee.
Okay so I just looked up satire and I think I get it, it’s like jokes and stuff. Like how irony is jokes and coincidences and stuff. So I think, to all the people who were like OP didn’t get it, he clearly did get it because in the first paragraph he talked about jokes and stuff. The things with the books and shirts and things. So, yeah, calm down and cheer up because I think everyone got it and everyone was all really funny with their satire. This is why I love Tumblr you guys lol also I think I convinced myself to be Christian again, so thanks for this chat.
Christ be with you but really Science cause I changed my mind mid-valediction,
this is insulting on both ends. the gross generalization that atheists are of a higher intellectual substance/more kickass sense of humour(you think the bible is made up, har har. SURE, overused and done to death) is a fallacy you’re riding comfortably on. i’m just as sure there are atheists who reject religion simply on the frivolous basis like how movies have made it cool to do so, demonizing people of faith or dumbing down their intelligence(oh hello, original commenter). simply put, if your disbelief is based on nothing more substantial than a fad or popular opinion and no sincere want to go beyond superficial understanding, your opinions should count for nothing more than mindless polemics. are you wearing your atheist label as a badge of intellectual superiority? that you actually know something that christians don’t? you’re the last person i’d look to to disprove God.
you will find reasons to be angry at christians as much as the other way around, but ignorance is the disease - and that is unequivocally the fault of human, not God. A person’s spiritual journey is incredibly personal how it needs to be respected just seems be be completely lost on you. faith translated into action doesn’t always result in things we’re comfortable with. do all christians condone or even identify with hateful actions of zealots? i hardly believe so. do said zealots actually believe what they’re doing is truly in the name of god? maybe, maybe not: simply because there are assholes out there who will use the bible to justify their means(abominable) and people who misintepret and extract passages(regretfully sad). the latter, again, another form of ignorance - taking things out of context. not every christian is as well-versed in the bible as they’d like to think they are. it is those who assume they are but still think epistles are the wives of the apostles that are the most frustrating. the bible was written throughout the course of centuries; are you seriously going to justify what you know about and are against it over what you simply heard on the telly or read on evil-bible.net? the bible hates women, chyeah, God is sexist! the bible hates gays - chyeah, God is hateful! the bible condones stoning, chyeah, God is murderous! God’s word is rubbish. is that all your atheism is based on? you have to try harder.
Not mine anyway. I became an Atheist after reading a Douglas Adams biography when I was 13 and it inspired me to. I was never raised with a very thorough belief in the Bible, just prayer and confession. I find debating about it far more frustrating then I can be bothered with. I just wanted to share all the commentary.
