It was used to excuse slavery, and subsequent racism that plagued this country. People use their god to pass the buck and I'm calling you on it. If
you're homophobic, stand up and be proud of it. Take responsibility for your own mind.
I am homophobic...I dont like most humans...period. I especially dont think much of humans who tend to be ignorant enough to define who or what they
are by thier sexual orientation. Hetero or Homo. I think this is the very epitome of stupidity and I dont care what is ones education level.
I happen to think that human beings are so much more than sexual orientation. Much much more.
As to your comments about slavery..et al..I too think this is ignorance. and also a very biased view based on what we think is 20/20 vision.
Most religious doctrines throughout the world and history do not disparage slavery and there are records of peoples who have sold themselves into
slavery in order to survive and be fed. Slavery still takes place in certain locations in this world.
Our technological progress is the main advent which made slavery obselete and afforded us what we think is the moral high ground here. Nations without
such advancements are the nations which have serfdom, indentured servitude, gulags, or even the caste system. All very akin to slavery. I will also
remind you that debt is also very enslaving though many of us who are educated might not think so. We are selling ourselves into a type of slavery
here. This one just happens to be legitimized.
As a matter of recorded fact..our own government here seems to have the ability to sell us into debt/slavery...unlimited on the national debt. Think
long and hard on this one.
My point in all this is ...be carefull what you tend to think is religion. Even the religion of slavery. Religion covers more than what most of us
tend to think with our standard issued educations. I ,for one,happen to think that politics is a religion...obviously with a very devout and feverent
And it is obvious that politics, improperly handled, can be enslaving.
We dont often think of politics as being a religion or enslaving but it most certainly is. It is often the very selling and trading/bartering of the
souls of the people/nation. Thinking peoples know this ...without question.
One other thing of importance about religion and this nonsense of slavery. I dont own any slaves and never have. I never will. The same can be said
for most of us out here. WE are not accountable, to you or anyone else,as some kind of automatic default setting on this issue. Nor are our religious
You cannot play through unchallanged using such a technique or default setting based on religion. Some of us know enough of both history to challange
If you think this is not debatable...just look at the dominantly athiest nations in the 20th century and how they dealt with thier people. It is these
dominantly athiest nations...Russia and Mainland China who carried out "Humanist Doctrines" in handling and taking care of thier peoples.
How did this turn out ..historically Rasobasi420?? Is their humanist doctrine..a religious belief system?? Is their Humanist Doctrine related to the
atrocities and horrors they have carried out on about half of this world??
I can debate this with you or others all day long. The truth about this knowlege is that most "Believers." are way to ignorant about history ..any
history..even Christian History...to know the difference here. There is an abominable ignorance among many of my Christian Bretheren about this
topic. They are easily bamboozled by the technique such as you and others are wont to use concerning slavery/racism or any other attempted default
setting to play through unchallanged.
It is not so at this location. I can take this further but it is sufficient for the purposes of this thread.
I think Humanist Doctrine is a con job on peoples who do not know much history or even religion.
Also ..much of humanist doctrine has infiltrated churchs such that they no longer know the Word they are supposed to be following verses the way of
this world. Hence the ignorance of many believers and their being easily defaulted by techniques such as you and others are wont to use on these
I am Homophobic..and I dont care who knows it.
I am a very private individual and not wont to bother people or be bothered. However I will, at times like this, post my opinions.
Thanks Rasobasi for your posts,
