Non-Sequiter Of The Week Award.

Someone on xanga did a blog about how persecuted they are for being different, then said anyone who isn’t christian has sided with the devil etc.  I replied to someone praising them and comparing them to sarah palin bravely fighting against evil detractors:

“She is claiming those who do not agree with her are in league with satan.  She is actually, literally demonizing people who aren’t like her, while claiming to be victimized for disagreeing and you’re treating her like some kind of hero.

No wonder you like sarah palin, she said some of the most vile and dishonest things I’ve heard come out of a politician and spun the criticism as bias and victimization.  She recently made an ass out of herself talking to the press and defended herself by saying she was asked a”gotcha” trick question by the liberal lamestream media and all that BS – the question was ( closely paraphrasing) “how did you enjoy you trip and what do you take away from it”.

Spin is not reality, it is spin.  Lies, deception, a slanting of the truth.”

To which someone else replied:

I believe you are misinterpreting what Jesus Christ has said. You have
taken the verse below as saying, ” If you see something that offends
you, poke their eye out. You have misunderstood. Read again what Christ has said.

Mark 9:47King James Version (KJV)

 47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the
kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell
fire:

It is not necessary for you to continue commenting, but mtngirl is gracious enough to allow it. Consider that.

[then quoted a passage from someone’s blog which I will leave out for space]

I never even mentioned any scripture or anything about plucking eyes out, and that scripture is nothing to do with what I was saying.

  1. She didn’t say if you disagree with her you’re in league with Satan. She said if you are not a believer in God’s word, then you are against God and by default for Satan. It’s her belief system, but she doesn’t expect everyone to agree with her. I don’t agree with her but she’s entitled to her belief and until she calls on God to smite me for it I’m going to respect her right to believe as she will, while simultaneously hoping that something or someone will have such a profound affect on her that she will begin to reconsider certain opinions that she holds. People around here want respect for their choices and beliefs but aren’t willing to give any in return. That’s just sad.

    @girlForgetful – “She didn’t say if you disagree with her you’re in league with Satan. She said if you are not a believer in God’s word, then you are against God and by default for Satan.”And what she believes is that the bible is god’s word.  Hence what I said.  This is just semantics.”It’s her belief system, but she doesn’t expect everyone to agree with her.

People around here want respect for their choices and beliefs but aren’t willing to give any in return. That’s just sad.”My criticism was that she was being hypocritical, which as I pointed out, goes against many of christ’s teachings.  Nowhere did I say “the bible is a bunch of BS how dare you believe in it!”, but every reaction I’ve gotten is as if I had.@deadsunflowers – Always glad to entertain.

  3. @agnophilo – And you never disappoint.

  4. Your criticism of her hypocrisy was supported by a misrepresentation of her actual statements. Don’t misrepresent mine to suggest that I accused you of declaring the bible “BS”. It makes all that copying and pasting you did look like a waste of time. Instead of being defensive, remove the filter of your personal beliefs for a minute and try to comprehend where other people are coming from. THEN try to share your own beliefs and if you fail to change someone, know that your way does not fit everyone and move on. Write your Congressman and Representatives if it affects your rights and choose your battles wisely. You have a strong conviction to your beliefs and you should serve them in the most effective way you can if you want to change things.

  5. agnophilo says:

    @girlForgetful – I didn’t misrepresent her or your position, and I wasn’t quoting you.

  6. Are you actually attempting to tell me “believe what I say and not what you see with your own eyes?” Did I hallucinate seeing my entire comment copied into your response followed by an accusation that every reaction you’ve received was as if you said “The bible is a bunch of BS! How dare you believe it!”?. Tell me again I’m arguing semantics, please. Stick with the facts and stop the hyperbole. Seriously.

  7. agnophilo says:

    @girlForgetful – You just have crappy reading comprehension.  “You are reacting as though I said the bible is BS” is not the same as “you said that I said the bible is BS”.

    Mtngirlsouth and all her supporters are pretty much lunatics. She cries and forms a pity party because people think she’s ignorant and yet she says White privilege doesn’t exist, that homosexuals are simply mentally ill, and that even though you don’t believe in God (nor Satan) that you must be siding with Satan. Doesn’t sound like a smart cookie now does it?Personally if we’re siding with imaginary beings, I’m going with the centaurs. Half man half horse? Fuck yeah I say!

  9. PinkLeopards says:

    Oh and I just read the comments in that blog. These people have absolutely 0 reading comprehension skills, and are absolutely in denial of the Bible. But like I said in my latest blog, people only want to believe what’s convenient to them, right?

  10. @PinkLeopards – She’s the real-woman version of Loborn, only 25% more intelligent and 100% less troll.

  11. PinkLeopards says:

    @how2saveaplanet – It’s not hard to be smarter than loborn is it? lol She’s definitely a troll though. In my opinion if someone keeps responding to a blog and comments that they’re not even capable of reading, they’re a troll. She’s so damn ignorant and won’t take responsibility for it. She claims she was wrong about how she reacted to the whole race thing in my blog and yet I don’t see an apology. Hm.

  12. agnophilo says:

    @PinkLeopards – It’s just ethnocentrism and closed reasoning.@PinkLeopards – To be fair not every atheist has good reading comprehension either.@how2saveaplanet – 100%?@PinkLeopards – I wouldn’t know how to begin to assess loborn’s IQ – how can you tell when someone is so out of touch with reality?

  13. PinkLeopards says:

    @agnophilo – I think when it comes to loborn it will take a psychiatric specialist to be able to decide that one lol. & yes I agree there are many atheists on Xanga that don’t have any real reading comprehension skills. Axis is one of them. lol

Speak yer mind.
