Hello dear reader(s)!
Have any of you had a comment that was pretty rude, perhaps pushing their fire and brimstone views into your comments? Have you then blocked their site and IP address only to have that same person leave a hate comment on your post after they deleted their site and signed on from a different location? No? It is just me?
Or how about being sent a message on social media that told you that because would never enter into a race war (that will NEVER happen) and that even if some factions did, you sure as hell would not be on the side of the white supremacists; you are a non-white white? Some asshole took the time to make up a certificate and send me an award for being the non-white white of the day. Well, if ignoring the construct of race while acknowledging the reality of racism makes me a non-white white….so be it. At any rate, not wanting messages from white supremacists I immediately decided to block this person…but the chicken shit beat me to it. He made up a certificate, sent it to me, and then blocked me. What a little chickenshit.
I’ve always been relatively open to debate and disagreements, (barring hate speech, because I am not the government, and did not grant anyone First Amendment protections on my site), but otherwise I think respectful debate is healthy. But when someone comments on my post that is not pushing my agnosticism, but simply letting people know that I do not really subscribe to the beliefs of organized religion and appreciate if people recognize that for me as I recognize their right to their beliefs provided they do not infringe upon me…a post written months ago…that says, “you have already condemned yourself” I am going to dump that shit right into Spam. I do not go onto Christian’s posts and tell them of all the contradictory bullshit and different interpretations of their book. I don’t do it to Jews. I don’t do it to Atheists. I use my blog-type-thing to express my opinions and thoughts on things. If you don’t like it…move the fuck on.
This is not a forum I have set up for your soapbox and hateful opinions. I do not run ads or charge fees for your right to participate. This is MY soapbox, or echo chamber, or practice sessions. I created it, and it is mine.
I have been hearing a lot of talk about how many (not all) Christians are under attack because the court of public opinion is turning against their right to discriminate based on that religion. They have been saying they can not worship and believe as they choose. They say they can not speak their mind and beliefs without getting called bigots.
They are full of shit, on everything but the last part. You can worship, you can believe whatever the fuck you want. The government can not stop you from holding those beliefs but as always (just ask Satanists) they will attempt to stop you from hurting someone in the name of your religion. They will uphold the rule of law (most of the time) over your theocratic beliefs. You will not be thrown in jail for being a racist homophobic asshole. That is a First Amendment guarantee. But guess what…that shit does not trump MY right to exercise MY First Amendment beliefs either. You discriminate against gays? I call you a bigot. You tell me I’m going to Hell. I say if being around people like you would be Heaven, then I am ready to meet the devil. This isn’t infringing on your right to free speech, this is exercising mine. I’m not constraining your religious freedom by calling your beliefs a fairy tale, I am stating my beliefs. And we are protected in doing so…from the government.
From the government. From the government. I am not the government. If you say something I don’t like, I will not allow it on my page. I don’t have to. Show some fucking respect. This is my house, and I don’t let rude ass people into my house telling me that my views are condemning me to an eternity of suffering, which sounds so much better than the eternity of suffering hanging around you.
If we were at my house, face-to-face, and said that to me…you wouldn’t because you are a chickenshit.
Keep running your mouth though. I’m not a violent person (typically) and likely wouldn’t start something over words. My cancer has somewhat weakened me too although much of my physical strength is returning. At any rate, I’d probably just tell you to leave and slam the door in your face, rather than getting violent.
However…just because I wouldn’t start a fight over something like that does not mean that someone else won’t. The next person you go at might not be as forgiving as I am. And no matter how strong or great you think you are…I can guarantee that at some point you will cross paths with someone quite a bit stronger, faster, or more aggressive.
So by all means, keep going onto people’s creations and talking shit. Do it. See how that works out.
Maybe you should channel all that excess testosterone into getting laid, rather than being a dick to people you believe differently from.
