“At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him. But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it. “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. So the Lord let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)” – Exodus 4:24-26
What kind of a stupid, lame childish god is offended by foreskin?
And what kind of an abusive, selfish, narcissistic sociopathic asshole threatens to murder you if you do not cut off the foreskin that he, as the god, allegedly created himself??
Do you get that people: God creates foreskins. He then says they must come off (even though he could have just omitted them in the first place, see) and then when someone doesn’t take them off, he threatens to murder them?
Seriously – I can’t begin to describe the failed logic in this one and the sheer cruelty of such a logic, if the words logic and religion even go together. Think about this: who creates you one way, sets the rules deliberately at the exact opposite, waits for you to mess up and else sets you up for “failure” and then proceed to horribly punish you if you do, in fact, mess up?
This is the kind of stuff that gets me about religion and the legions of religious people who just (blindly) follow their religion, either conveniently omitting the parts they don’t like or genuinely not being aware of them or worse, be aware of them and just make excuses for them.
And what gets me even more is that people are apparently really that needy and stupid, really, to either believe such an asshole god is either real or worse, divine.
I am truly gutted about the news of Robin Williams’ death.
Williams was found today at his home in Tiburon, CA and it’s been reported that he committed suicide due to asphyxia – i.e. from probably hanging himself. The Marin County Sheriff’s Department released this statement:
On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin CountyCommunications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnelarriving on scene at 12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as Robin McLaurinWilliams, a 63 year old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.
An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00 pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1 call was placed to Marin CountyCommunications.
Robin’s rep also released a statement:
“Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
I am sad beyond belief by this. Not only for him and that he was in such a dark place that he felt the only way out was taking his own life, but also for his family who has to find a way to get through life in the wake of this devastation.
If you need any further evidence that depression is a powerful, soul sucking lying sack of shit disease, look no further than the tragic death of Robin Williams, a man that dedicated his life to making other people happy, yet couldn’t find a way out of the darkness himself.
The insediousness of depression just scares the hell out of me. It torments even the most seemingly happiest of people. Such an indiscriminate, hideous disease.
For some reason, all I can think about right now is this line he said in Dead Poet’s Society, which, looking back, seems prophetic (or maybe not. Death is a certainty, after all. It, however, does take a lot of insight to recognize that about life: “Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Make your lives extraordinary[...] because believe it or not, each and everyone of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold and die.”
What a short life we all live.
After a homeless man dipped into the church’s cookie jar, First Baptist Church of Royal Palm Beach in Florida had him arrested–for his own good, church officials say. The unnamed man, seeking assistance from the church, entered the church through an unlocked door. Once he entered the building, he saw a cookie jar and helped himself to the cookies inside.
A cleaning person happened upon the man and called 911. After a church employee showed up, it was decided that the First Baptist Church would demonstrate Christian charity by having the homeless man locked up for the theft of the cookies, which are valued at $2.25.
The church claims that the decision to press charges was done with the homeless man’s best interests at heart because it was decided on the scene that the man was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The church officials and the police officer who pushed for the arrest decided that bringing the troubled young man – who was thrown out by his family onto the streets because of an alleged “destructive and disruptive lifestyle” is best helped by being incarcerated and pulled “into the system” because, as we all know, the best way to help an (emotionally) troubled person possibly struggling with substance abuse is by locking him up behind bars in our our gracious for-profit prison system, giving him a criminal record so he will definitely have a hard time finding employment later with a tarnished record like that and throwing away the key.
The church admitted (see below) that it has contacts with rehabilitation programs that could have helped this person instead of having him incarcerated for stealing a cookie when he was hungry, but alas, the church claims, in very Christ-like fashion, that having the man arrested still “seemed reasonable.”
Yeah, just like Jesus would have done.
Well, it is a good thing that Atheists are the least trusted entity in this country, just a notch under rapists, because they do not believe in a higher power and therefore are the ones without morals. Unlike this church and its followers who clearly get their morality directly from god.
By buying products made by Israel & Jews (made in Israel or made outside of Israel but directly or indirectly support Israel) you are contributing to their economy hence supporting the massacre and genocide of innocent Palestinians, who are surrounded and are being attacked by Air, sea and land.
A bar code starting with “729” indicates that this product is produced in Israel 729 Israeli Bar Code Association – EAN Israel.This is a modest, simple and effective way to support Palestinianstruggleagainst Israeli occupation and ethnic crimes against humanbeings.Sometimes brands are misleading, a bar code never lies if it carriesthat729
Below is a list of products that are made in Israel & Jews (made in Israel or made outside of Israel but directly or indirectly support Israel) , the information was taken from a website www.boycottisraeligoods.org I will try keeping this list updated as I continue finding products made in Israel and by Jews (made in Israel or made outside of Israel but directly or indirectly support Israel) . If anyone has more information then please comment with reference and I will update this post as soon as.
The boycott of Israeli products and companies supporting Israel is a peaceful means of putting international pressure on apartheid Israel and follows in the footsteps of the successful boycott against South African apartheid. Help end Palestinian suffering by boycotting Israel today!
