America, Church, and Driving: PRAY FOR US SINNERS JACKSON #10 :00CHRISTIAN BAPTIST SUN. SERVICE 9:30 AM&11:00 AM SUN. EVE. 7:00 PM PASTOR: COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS REPENT CHURCHES CHRISTIAN FIRST BRETHREN CHURCH oFTHE BRETHREN EVANGELICAL METHODIST zephyrantha: glamourcat28: theexistentiallyqueer: saathi1013: stonecoldfemme: sonneillonv: copperhamster: conquerorwurm: banana0042: maybeware: fantastigasmical: kaci3po: watergender: psychicdictatorship: the aesthetic of american far right christianity is horrifying run-down signs screaming about hell in the middle of nowhere is my aesthetic though You don’t know true pants-shitting fear until you’re driving in the middle of nowhere, not a single sign of civilization as far as the eye can see, haven’t seen another living being in three hours, and then out of nowhere suddenly looms a half-destroyed barn with the words “HELL IS REAL” painted on what remains of the roof. I’ll be honest, you could say most of these were from a horror game and I wouldn’t doubt you.  Implying America isn’t a horror game lately. America isn’t a game. It is just a horror. Visible from i-40, between Interstate 40 and old Route 66, the Groom, TX cross Englewood Ohio @saathi1013 #i feel like you would appreciate this YEP. hey so fun fact about that last one it’s located right by the I-75 highway and anyone driving in or out of cincinnati could see it from the road and it was horrifying the first time i saw it because i felt like i was about to die. the statue was called king of kings, but i only ever heard it referred to as touchdown jesus. just imagine yourself kicking a football through those lofty open arms…..ohio 1, satan 0. in 2010 touchdown jesus was very sadly struck by lightning and burned down, possibly because so many heathens were calling him touchdown jesus and imagining playing football with the lord. or possibly because that’s just what happens when you build a giant styrofoam and fiberglass statue next to an artificial pond on a hill in the middle of rural ohio. fortunately our good friends down in englewood have contingency plans for god’s wrath and the end of the world, so they built a new statue named lux mundi. unfortunately, lux mundi is not as amped to play football. but he does look like he’s down for hugs. RIP, touchdown jesus. we miss you. 😢 The skeletal remains of touchdown Jesus is one of the more horrifying things I’ve seen. The line “heathens were calling him touchdown Jesus and imagining playing football with the Lord” is hilarious to me because one of the most pervasive Christian summer camp/“get the kids excited” songs is called My Father’s House and talks about Heaven as a great vacation destination, and everyone’s favorite line is “It’s a big, big yard where we can play football! TOUCHDOWN!” And yes, please do imagine several hundred kids getting more excited about playing football with God than literally anything else that week.

America, Donald Trump, and God: "Nathing beats the Bible!" -President Donald Trump OF PASTOR: SENIOR REPUBLICAN TOLD ME OF PLAN TO ‘TAKE OUT’ TRUMP. An evangelical pastor claims he met with a senior Republican Congressman who told him of a plot to “remove Trump suddenly from office”. “He said there is a plot on Capitol Hill to take the president out, I said you mean by impeachment or by indictment – he said no, to take him out, he will be removed suddenly from office,” said Howard-Browne, before adding, “you can read between the lines”. President Donald Trump is doing his best to turn our nation back to the values we were always proud of, and it’s one of the reasons deep state doesn’t love him. You could have noticed that not only the media hates him but also his fellow members of the Republican Party. The reason is that Trump is not a puppet in their hands, and he has a straight and clear plan of how to make America great again. If only the deep state openly opposes our President, it will be for us to defend core principles of the American Constitution, to defend the man we elected to represent our will. If the political elite have decided they can dictate us how to live, forgetting who gave them their jobs, Americans will remind them.

Baseball, Donald Trump, and Energy: J L Tierney Jan 28 at 11:23pm G The people who sheltered Jews in hidden rooms and attics and basements during the Holocaust were breaking the law. The people who smuggled 7,000 Jews out of Denmark were breaking the law. Schindler was breaking the law. The Underground Railroad broke the law. Harriet Tubman broke the law. MLK broke the law. Hell, the fucking Boston Tea Party broke the law. If saving friends and family and innocent people is breaking the law, break the law. If standing up for truth and justice is breaking the law, break the law. The law is unjust. The law is morally wrong.

Just because swearing or sex in a film doesn’t make you stumble, doesn’t mean that is true for others. 1 Corinthians chapters 8 and 10 are entirely about watching out for what seemingly-innocuous (to you) activities might make a fellow Christian stumble.</p></blockquote> <p>Oh believe me, he definitely didn&rsquo;t think I should watch it either. And I&rsquo;m not going to not recommend a good film just because some people are uncomfortable with swearing. It&rsquo;s not like I was recommending something pornographic. People can surmise from the R rating that it&rsquo;s going to have language and if that bothers them they probably won&rsquo;t bother seeing in the first place.</p>

If Jesus wouldn’t say the words, I’m pretty sure He wouldn’t pay money to have someone say those words to Him for the sake of entertainment. <br/>What if it wasn’t profanity. What if it was sexuality? Is it OK to see a film with 50 F-words, but not OK to see a movie with sex scenes? Or are they both OK? <br/>Just trying to figure out your position on it. 🙂”</p> <p>I’m screaming. He’s an old friend and I really am trying to be respectful and kind but I really don’t know where else this conversation can go. I’m pretty much done explaining myself to him. He doesn’t have to agree. I’ve never tried to pressure him into watching movies with profanity, so I think he needs to respect my space. I do believe it’s important for Christians to hold each other accountable, but there’s a line between doing that and being annoying and judgmental.</p> </blockquote> <p>OH MYLANTA.</p> <p>“Profanity has changed, yes. But I think we can both agree that profanity today is something a Christian should never say. If a Christian went around saying the F word, I would know that they are very weak in their faith of at all, a Christian. <br/>Also, the people who determine what profanity is…is the secular culture itself! It says “Strong Language” in the rating for a reason. And it’s rated by a secular culture, not Christians. <br/>So if the secular culture itself labels a word as “bad” then it is ever more “off limits” for a Christian to use because even the lost people says it’s a “bad word.”</p> <p>So I really don’t think Jesus would take part in phrases that even the lost world would say are bad. <br/>And yes, they do use the Lord’s name as a cuss words in the film, so that should be an immediate red flag. </p> <p>See the problem is, where to draw the line. You say sex scenes are OK of they are relevant to the story. Where do you draw the line? <br/>What if there is an incredible movie about a porn star who gives their life to Christ. Well, to be relevant to the story, they show some of the porn that took place. It’s relevant to the story and it’s important to know. <br/>So, If that is wrong but the small sex scene is OK…Who draws the line? <br/>Do you draw the line? What if your line is farther than mine? Am I wrong? Are you wrong?<br/>We can’t both be right. <br/>See, I don’t believe WE get to draw where the line goes. Christ drew the line a long time ago. <br/>“Abstain from even the appearance of Evil” 1 Thessalonians 5:22. <br/>I dont think that involves F words and sex scenes…regardless of the story. <br/>What I’m saying is, as a Christian, I dont think it’s right in any way to pay money and voluntarily listen to profanity and watch sex scenes. I think we can both agree that both of those are things the Lord would not approve of for a Christian.<br/>And if we try to say what is “too much” for us, who determines that? It must be God who draws where the line is. <br/>Do you see what I’m saying?“</p> </blockquote> <p><i> “But I think we can both agree that profanity today is something a Christian should never say.”</i><br/></p><p>that’s where you’re fuckin wrong, kiddo</p></blockquote> <p>Lol. For real. I&rsquo;ve literally heard my priest swear. Once from the pulpit. I finally did put the kibosh on the conversation and it actually ended on a surprisingly civil note. I just told him I respect his opinion but I disagree I will continue to test my own conscience against my personal relationship with Christ and my studying of the Scriptures and come to my own conclusions. He backed off.</p>

What if it was sexuality? Is it OK to see a film with 50 F-words, but not OK to see a movie with sex scenes? Or are they both OK? <br/>Just trying to figure out your position on it. 🙂”</p><p>I’m screaming. He’s an old friend and I really am trying to be respectful and kind but I really don’t know where else this conversation can go. I’m pretty much done explaining myself to him.

I do believe it’s important for Christians to hold each other accountable, but there’s a line between doing that and being annoying and judgmental.</p></blockquote> <p>OH MYLANTA.</p><p>&ldquo;Profanity has changed, yes. But I think we can both agree that profanity today is something a Christian should never say. If a Christian went around saying the F word, I would know that they are very weak in their faith of at all, a Christian. <br/>Also, the people who determine what profanity is&hellip;is the secular culture itself! It says &quot;Strong Language&rdquo; in the rating for a reason. And it&rsquo;s rated by a secular culture, not Christians. <br/>So if the secular culture itself labels a word as &ldquo;bad&rdquo; then it is ever more &ldquo;off limits&rdquo; for a Christian to use because even the lost people says it&rsquo;s a &ldquo;bad word.&rdquo;</p><p>So I really don&rsquo;t think Jesus would take part in phrases that even the lost world would say are bad. <br/>And yes, they do use the Lord&rsquo;s name as a cuss words in the film, so that should be an immediate red flag. </p><p>See the problem is, where to draw the line. You say sex scenes are OK of they are relevant to the story. Where do you draw the line? <br/>What if there is an incredible movie about a porn star who gives their life to Christ. Well, to be relevant to the story, they show some of the porn that took place. It&rsquo;s relevant to the story and it&rsquo;s important to know. <br/>So, If that is wrong but the small sex scene is OK&hellip;Who draws the line? <br/>Do you draw the line? What if your line is farther than mine? Am I wrong? Are you wrong?<br/>We can&rsquo;t both be right. <br/>See, I don&rsquo;t believe WE get to draw where the line goes. Christ drew the line a long time ago. <br/>&ldquo;Abstain from even the appearance of Evil&rdquo; 1 Thessalonians 5:22. <br/>I dont think that involves F words and sex scenes&hellip;regardless of the story. <br/>What I&rsquo;m saying is, as a Christian, I dont think it&rsquo;s right in any way to pay money and voluntarily listen to profanity and watch sex scenes. I think we can both agree that both of those are things the Lord would not approve of for a Christian.<br/>And if we try to say what is &ldquo;too much&rdquo; for us, who determines that? It must be God who draws where the line is. <br/>Do you see what I&rsquo;m saying?&ldquo;</p>

Apparently, Jesus, and Lol: 9:43 PM I hope everything is going well I just have a question, I saw your post about "Highly Recommending" everyone to go see "Get Out". My question is, as a Christian, is it right to recommend people to go see something with so much profanity in it? Regardless of it's message, it has 50 F-words, 45 S-words with a lot of others as well. I'm not messaging you to bee mean or anything, I genuinely wanted to know why you recommending it.

America, Candy, and Children: Left and Right Wing Fascism and Traditional Nazism Socialism conservatism Left wing Right wing Private economic Public economic ownership and hierarchy ownership and equality Communism and Liberalism Right-wing left-wing anarchism anarchism azkre: marvelandponder: secondlina: I’m really alarmed by the misinformation I see on social media right now, so here is a little simplified guide to WTF is going on. (Edited to work better for tumblr, I originally just made screenshots for Twitter) What is a NAZI? Nazi is an abbreviation for National Socialism (Nationalsozialismus) an ideology associated primarily with the 20th-century German Nazi Party (especially while it was being led by Adolt Hitler). The idea that National Socialism lived and died primarily through Hitler is actually a myth propagated by post-war propaganda and Hollywood. America destroyed those Nazis!! YAY!! – Wrong, They still exist. Although not under that name. Any far-right groups is basically a “Nazi” party (many even used the term “National Socialism” until a re-branding in the 80’s. The German political scientist Klaus von Beyme describes three historical phases in the development of far-right parties in Western Europe after World War II. From 1945 to the mid-1950s, far-right parties were marginalized, and their ideologies were discredited due to the recent existence and defeat of Nazism – because people were murdered. In droves. Like millions of people. Death camps are REAL. 11 million people died, including 1.1 million children. Thus in the years immediately following World War II, the main objective of far-right parties was survival; achieving any political impact at all, was largely not expected. From the mid-1950s to the 1970s, the so-called “populist protest phase” emerged with sporadic electoral success. During this period, far-right parties drew to them charismatic leaders whose profound mistrust of the political establishment led to an “us-versus-them” mind set: “us” being the nation’s citizenry, “them” being the politicians and bureaucrats who were then in office; beginning in the 1980s, the electoral successes of far-right political candidates made it possible for far-right political parties to revitalize anti-immigration as a mainstream issue. What does anybody in the far right REALLY support? How politics work is that there is two sides. The right and the left. In the middle, Liberalism and democracy. The far-right isn’t about the “working man” at all. That’s what the LEFT is about. The Left is ALL about the public being in control. There is currently no major leftist parties in power in America (Democrats are closer to the middle - center-right, actually. They just get called the left party because nobody is). What the right really advocates is private economic ownership (aka the rich getting’ richer), racial hierarchy (whites better than everyone else) and Social Darwinism (which is the idea that “weak” humans, aka the old, the sick, etc, deserve to be removed. That means gradually killed. Don’t get attached to your grandma). Extreme right-wing politicians are usually extreme nationalists (“bringing back JOBS to AMERICANS” = eventually they will exploit you as workers void of rights), and are opposed to immigration. They are also profoundly chauvinistic (that means women are seen as inferior). Is Trump a representative of the extreme right? Most definitely, since he supports all that was listed above. Loudly, too. So, Trump isn’t going to really help the so-called American Working Man? Who even is that? Everybody American works, no matter who they are. But if you mean that you’re a white middle class American, then you’ll get candy for a year and then be abused just like the rest of us. You’re already losing your rights to free information and healthcare. So, you might as well join the fight with us. Who is Richard B. Spencer? Richard Bertrand Spencer (born May 11, 1978) is an American white nationalist, known for promoting white supremacist views. He is president of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think-tank, and Washington Summit Publishers, an independent publishing firm. Spencer has stated that he rejects the description of white supremacist, and describes himself as an identitarian. He advocates for a white homeland for a “dispossessed white race” and calls for “peaceful ethnic cleansing” to halt the “deconstruction” of European culture. The Identitarian movement is a European political movement that started in France in 2002 and is basically all about destroying anybody who is a shade darker then milk. The Identitarian movement has a close linkage to members of the German New Right, aka Neo-Nazis. So this guy is definitely a “Nazi”. Was it ok to punch him? It’s never ok to punch someone who has not provoked you. HOWEVER, what Spencer is doing is saying: I want to hurt people. I want to hurt people a lot. Not today. But, tomorrow, maybe. His very existence and allegiance is a constant menace. Picture it this way, if you met a guy in the park and he said hi, I don’t have a gun today, but I might tomorrow, and I might come back to shoot people, would you just ignore him? No. So in conclusion, march peacefully, but do punch Nazis.  This is the American scale. I really want to point this out because it’s a legitimate thing that Trump is far more extreme right than you may think. It also explains why this is a thing that happened. See, compared to many other countries in the world, my own included, the American political spectrum is offset to the right. So what OP said about there not being an extreme left is absolutely true, there’s barely a left to begin with. Sourcity-Sourcey-Source I’d like to point out that this is a recorded phenomenon in political science and not my own biased interpretation of your politics. Noam Chomsky—cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist among other things (this guy pops up in my university classes from time to time; the dude’s part of the curriculum whether that says anything to you or not)—has been pretty outspoken about this. “… so what [Republicans have] done is mobilized sectors of the population that have always been there but have never really been politically mobilized, like Evangelical Christians, the nativists who are afraid that ‘they’ are taking our country away from us, white racists, … gun-people who are so terrified that they have to carry their guns into church because maybe somebody’ll come after them.  You know, these sectors of the population are there, and that’s now the base of the Republican party.” So, this election night was a shocking, absolutely horrifying blow to my American friends. Even my friends here in Canada couldn’t come to terms with it. I saw panic attacks, fears about even visiting American relatives in the States again, and even a depressive loss of faith in humanity. How could this be where the world is today? Because, it’s this gradual shift to the right that’s so insidious, that happened for a variety of complex reasons, I’m sure, that can to some make it seem like the current Republican party is a reasonable center-right party, when in actuality they are legitimately far right. And as such, able to take advantage of these small groups on the outside that have desperately wanted a podium for a long time. So, no, you’re not imagining it, America. This isn’t normal. Punch some Nazis, if that’s what it takes. side note: This is what we call the Overton Window and that is a really good visual of it. It’s also important to point out that this isn’t just the United States and it never really was. Even now, because of Brexit and Trump’s election, the radical nationalist/fascist/racist/sexist/whatever end of the political spectrum is now being galvanized globally with the success and encouragement of this and aided by political echo-chambers in media, the internet, and small communities. Nationalist movements are picking up again in France and Germany and even Canada now has at least three people running for the Conservative Party leadership on a Trump-like storm.
