“And alcohol is easier to obtain than any firearm.”
That’s some fine whataboutism you’re peddling there, buckaroo.
We are consistently passing new laws to regulate alcohol, automobiles and hospitals, while laws regulating guns have actually decreased in recent years. So nice try fuckface.
This is way more appropriate than my La La Land-related gun control protest last year.
The Old Testament Israelites are soooooo dumb. They’re like the equivalent of the people who don’t believe in Santa Claus despite being in a story where Santa is real.
I’d love to see people’s comments on things like this automatically show their voting record.
There is currently a large school walkout being planned for mid-March to protest the lack of gun control. I’m no longer in school but I’m currently passing word out to everyone I know who is, and I’ll support it any other way I can think of. Not the only thing we’re doing, either. You keep your despair. I’d rather do…
You can’t shame the shameless, folks. Ain’t nothing gonna change between now and the next mass shooting. And the next, and the next, and the next...
It was in the not too distant future
Shut up Dad you don’t know anything!
In this sinful society, it is important to absorb the moral teachings of a story like this. Sex is bad and women are liars.
Yeah sheesh guys have you ever heard of a thing called The Holy Bible. And not this NIV bullshit you have to read the original version which is King James.
It also can’t be 4000-year-old story because the universe is only 3500 years old. I learned that in my homeschooling.
Most of the old testament stories are literally deus ex machina stories. Hero wants to do something, encounters difficulty, believes in God, God does it for him*. It’s not a deep read unless you want to try to figure out which parts are “real.”
Not your fault, but my inner historian cringes at “4,000 year old story”. This is probably closer to 2700. It represents a fundamentally 8-7th century BCE reality in the area.
And he’s like...the DUMBEST guy on the planet. Delilah keeps asking him the secret of his strength...then he’d lie about it and she’d try to take his strength away. This happens THREE TIMES and he decides “well, maybe I can trust her!” the fourth time despite THE CONSTANT EVIDENCE SHE SHOULDN’T BE TRUSTED.
Congratulations, you are officially too intelligent to be an evangelical Christian.
See, you need to interpret those “JESUS” billboards as if someone was repeatedly exclaiming “JESUS!” in disbelief over the fact that they’re in fucking Missouri.
I don’t know if it’s still like this as it’s been awhile since I’ve driven through Missouri, but at one time it seemed as if every billboard in the state had just one word -“JESUS” - written on them. They weren’t advertisements for any church. They didn’t have any further words of wisdom. They just said “JESUS”.
