Hey interesting fact time: May 1st 1945, Adolf Hitler was announced dead.
May 1st 2011, Osama Bin Laden announced dead.
HAHAHAHAHAI'm just gonna say this now. If you really honestly try to disrupt a rally celebrating his death, people will think you're an Al Qaida apologist and you might get hurt. I'm not saying I want you to get hurt, but big mobs have a very simplistic mentality, and morals kind of fly out of the window in those situations.
Nothing does. There is no justifying killing a man. Why do you so desperately seek out a means of justifying death?
Interestingly enough, the sermon today was on pain and why there was suffering in the world at my parents church. Pretty ironic, huh?
Modify a Bernzo into a full fledged homemade flame thrower for those flying morals.HAHAHAHAHA
BECAUSE I STOP AND TRY TO EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE THAT IT IS WRONG TO BEGET PLEASURE FROM THE DEATH OF ANOTHER HUMAN BEING I MUST BE WITH AL QAIDA.
Hold the phones this isthe stupidest thing I have heard in a very, very, very long time.
Even though it may be hard it's worth it in the end. I encourage you all to speak publicly against dehumanizing, relishing in revenge, and violence. You don't have to, but your opinions and your voices matter.It'll be hard for her to get her message out, with moral relativists like Rukh trying to bring her down.
NO ONE READS.
I said it was unlikely, but I had hoped he could be captured alive. I knew it probably wasn't possible. And I spoke against torture. And if you could read/did read you'd know that because I already said it, TWICE.
And I never said release him. Where the fuck did you get that from? Stop spewing bullshit and making shit up. Learn to read and comprehend what I type or stop replying to me.
Y'know I read this interesting essay exploring a theory I had for a while about Jesus. My theory was that Jesus was essentially an adoptee, in that while Mary was indeed his mother, Joseph wasn't and his true biological father was a Roman. So growing up with that knowledge, and the reality that his "impure" blood and his illegitimate status both made him a scapegoat and fundamentally incompatible with his family contributed greatly to his worldview and philosophy. But the essay took it a step further and surmised that whether purposely or subconsciously, he drove the Romans and Jews alike to hate, reject and murder him, to make the deeply held belief he had about his lot in life a self-fulfilling prophecy. I think everyone should remember, if you think Jesus was generally a good guy and not deserving of what he had to experience in life or in death, why would you want to put someone else in his place? If you admire or even worship him, again, why would you want to put someone else in his place, since obviously an evil, irredeemable monster shouldn't have anything in common with your messiah, right? That's essentially what you're doing, whether or not you want to admit it. Jesus may or may not have somehow orchestrated his own martyrdom, but one thing's for certain. He either had an intuitive, intimate knowledge of how mob mentality works and used it to both create his own following and his own, consciously or subconsciously desired end, or it happened because humans are at their worst when in groups and ruled purely by base emotion. And if the latter is more true, it was out of both his hands and theirs. I'd like to believe we've become slightly better in that regard. We shouldn't try to create scapegoats anymore than we try to create martyrs, because it turns out both involve pretty much the same fucking thing, and it always means humanity has become the thing it hates.
That.... is so fucking deep man.
Because what greater power in the world is their than to own another person? And what greater expression of that power is there than to snuff out said person's life? I think most people, deep down want that kind of power, even if they can only participate in and experience it vicariously.
I'm not. I just think its kinda funny.
Even though it may be hard it's worth it in the end. I encourage you all to speak publicly against dehumanizing, relishing in revenge, and violence. You don't have to, but your opinions and your voices matter.
No. I'm not allowed to ban people for questionable intelligence that leads to conflict over the result of questionable intelligence related posts.
Other things Hitler and Osama shared-
They were men.
They both ate food.
They both did what they did because they worshipped an ancient desert blood god and wanted to purify the infidels and their bloodlines... Through fire.
In other words, what's your point? :V
Already do. Death is a means to stop someone from hurting others, but is also the worst possible choice. (Aside from things like Torture and THEN death. :V )
You have a sick sense of humor. I don't mean that in a good way.
LOOK AT THIS FACE OF DISAPPROVAL AND THEN READ THE LAST THREE PAGES OF THIS THREAD.
