Full text if you don’t want to swipe: “Yes, even criminals are people. That’s how human rights work. Because once you stop working that way, you can make anyone into a criminal. Dark skin gets equated to ‘gang member.’ Trans gets equated to ‘sex worker’ or ‘pedophile.’ ‘Sex worker’ gets equated to ‘human trafficker.’ And then before you know it, the state cracks down on everybody that isn’t straight, cis, white, and ‘gainfully employed.’ Of course the loophole has always been there, right there in the 13th amendment. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution declared that ‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT AS A PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.' But people say ‘oh it’s about criminals, so that’s okay.’ It’s not okay to dehumanize anyone. And once you let the state dehumanize anyone, they’ll eventually come after you, too. THE LAW DOES NOT DEFINE MORALITY. Slavery was legal. The Holocaust was legal. Only allowing non-criminals to be human means you give up any and all moral authority to the state, which by design has no concept of morality. If you let criminality dehumanize people, you have rejected the very foundation of morality. If you let criminality justify dehumanization, you are always one legislative act away from losing your humanity. The solution isn’t to get meaner, crueler, and more fascist. The solution is to re-humanize our society, de-militarize our police, de-criminalize people who aren’t causing any harm, and always remember the difference between the law and morality. Remember the difference between the law and how the law is enforced. Refuse to let law enforcement be above the law. Refuse to let ‘law and order’ become our core value, when what we need is a moral foundation that isn’t subject to the whims of legislation or theology.” by @ AmyDentata on Twitter.: amy d @AmyDentata Following yes, even criminals are people that's how human rights work 5:46 PM - 17 May 2018 Full text if you don’t want to swipe: “Yes, even criminals are people.

So is that why we don’t sacrifice lambs anymore?: I would like to read to you what The Jesus said abôut homosexuality I'd like to, but he never said anything abou it mediapathic nextyearsgirl: This is an enormous chain and I'm sorry, but I need to say this: The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sih of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he sald "it is finished" when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don't have to circumcise their sons (god's covenant with Jacob), that is why they don't have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus. When you quote Leviticus as god's law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ's sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are stil beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn't good enough for you. So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think. This is a theological point that doesn't come up often enough So is that why we don’t sacrifice lambs anymore?

chrisdigay: leftist-daily-reminders:Warehouses of goods exist, owners fence off these resources in order to extract profit out of people in dire need. Capitalism corrupts our human instincts and emphasizes our capacity to be horrible to each other. fuck shit The irony about freemarket theology, which is what I consider it, is that it makes the claim that a free market will lead to the best possible outcome for both the consumer and the business and thus the entire nation/society, yet we can see here that letting the market do its thing aka letting corporations do whatever they want creates a schism when it comes to benefits: the benefits all go to the massive corporation and the consumers who are supposed to benefit from the allegedly benevolent actions of the market end up getting screwed. When exactly does the worshipped supply and demand come into play to save the day? No consumer is demanding to pay this much money. Free marketers will retort with well the government is responsible for making these companies monopolies!! REALLY?? And even if that is true (in some cases it is) having no government and no regulations at all I doubt would translate into the utopía freemarketers promise. The market is incapable of fixing many problems and leads to the creation of monopolies. Competition doesnt always lead to innovation and often leads to mightier companies buying out and destroying smaller ones.

It was some of the worst theology I had ever heard in my life.: No es WoMEN SHOULDNT WEAR PANTS Women Shouldnt Wear Pants by Digital Art / Photomanipulation / Political C201 #pants #wearing #women Watch One of the most controversial subjects in America's churches today is pants on women, but there is NO controversy if you believe the Bible. 1st Timothy 2:9 clearly instructs women to dress MODESTLY, i.e., of good behavior. A woman's clothing says MUCH about her moral character. It is unbiblical and a sin for women to dress immodestly, clothing themselves like the heathen world around us. It was the ungodly women's liberation movement of whores, kooks and feminists who through worldly magazines, hellivision and sensual women's clothing catalogs changed how women dress today. The average woman these days has no more class or femininity than a hermit crab. Please ladies, don't wear pants in public, because some young girl is watching you, because other women are intluenced by you, because many men are strugaling with sexual temptation, and mostly because God has commanded you not to wear that which pertaineth to a man (Deuteronomy 22:5). If lust is a sin, then so also is women wearing pants a sin. If adultery is a sin, then so also is women promoting adulterous thoughts by immodest clothing a sin. The wicked world couldn't care less about immodest clothing. It is not a coincidence that abortion became legalized right after the large majority of American women started wearing pants in the 1950's and 1960's <p><a href="http://dragonrider419.tumblr.com/post/160717706451/libertarirynn-patron-saint-of-smart-asses" class="tumblr_blog">dragonrider419</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/160717213334/patron-saint-of-smart-asses-bizantia" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://patron-saint-of-smart-asses.tumblr.com/post/160716640724/bizantia-patron-saint-of-smart-asses" class="tumblr_blog">patron-saint-of-smart-asses</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://bizantia.tumblr.com/post/160716550813/patron-saint-of-smart-asses-celticpyro" class="tumblr_blog">bizantia</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://patron-saint-of-smart-asses.tumblr.com/post/160715806734/celticpyro-shameshack-a-christian-fanatic-in" class="tumblr_blog">patron-saint-of-smart-asses</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://celticpyro.tumblr.com/post/160714787754/shameshack-a-christian-fanatic-in-da-between" class="tumblr_blog">celticpyro</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://shameshack.tumblr.com/post/160601805338/a-christian-fanatic-in-da" class="tumblr_blog">shameshack</a>:</p> <blockquote><blockquote><p>A Christian fanatic in DA.</p></blockquote></blockquote> <p>Between the fact that the lady in the dress is actually <i>less</i> covered up than the woman in pants, and correlating wearing pants to abortion, I’m heavily inclined to think this is satire, but I honestly can’t be sure.<br/></p> </blockquote> <p style="">*DA war flashbacks intensify*<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Has anyone else noticed that with anti-pants, pro-dresses stuff that 99.999% of the time the pants the female is wearing are skin-tight?

He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this: Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright. I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian. The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’ Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules. Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.  I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.  Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate. I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers. Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover. Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover. Matthew 8:5-13 THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES. In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce. ^^^^this reblogging for the comments ^^^^^^ EXCUSE ME WHILE I REBLOG THIS FIFTY MILLION TIMES : "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of death; their blood shall be upon them." -Leviticus 20:13 The Scripture is clear.
