10th September 2012

“Why do religions all want to get their hands on the minds of young children? Is it because they are more pliable and less challenging than adults? Because they are less likely to ask awkward questions?”

    ‘get em young and keep ’em dumb.

    A grown up will tell them where to stick their shit.

    What else would you expect of pedophiles?

  3. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    (Matthew 8:5-13 and Luke 7:1-10) recounts the same story in slightly different terms, recounting the healing of a “beloved slave,”

    According to T. W. Jennings, professor of biblical and constructive theology at the Chicago Theological Seminary, this supports the inference that the centurion’s servant healed by Jesus was the centurion’s beloved, and this narrative “as Jesus’ acceptance of, and even collaboration in a pederastic relationship.”

    If it all begins with Jesus, and Jesus accepted man boy love, if the Jesus character was constructed from the Horus character and we know about Horus and Set, then it is reasonable to conclude that pedophilia is very much a part of Christianity and highly likely a part of the religious con that is described in Defiantnonbelievers link from yesterday.

    “Train up a child in the way he shall go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” It’s about mind control. Richard Dawkins said that indoctrination of children into religious belief is a far worse sin than sexual abuse, because their minds are permanently tainted.

    Anyone who has children knows that they certainly are not less likely to ask awkward questions. I was the queen of those when I was a kid. It isn’t the asking as much as it is the answering of those questions. Children are not in the intellectual position to challenge the nonsensical crap fed to them. They trust those giving them the answers. They will believe anything as life has not given them enough experiences to develop skepticism. Fear is heaped on as a last measure of protection – fear of hell, fear of the devil, fear of not being with those you love…forever… eternity… Only a religious zealot can do that to their child and feel good about it.

    I saw the following invitation at the bottom of an article and thought our group here might catch a laugh:

    Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

  8. Kittie Aldakkour Says:

    Are we supposed to be anonymous? on here? are you all using fake names? Crap…

  9. Margaret Says:

    My name is real too, Kittie, I just didn’t use the whole thing. My family would have kittens if they found out I was thinking for myself.

    That is funny. My family thinks I am going to hell…. (not my husband of course and my kids are mine to teach, but the rest of them) Some don’t associate with me at all. They were too chickenshit to tell me, but my brother’s significant other saw stuff on my facebook page (that I “liked” Skeptic Magazine and Scientific American and a few statements I have made for sure)…My unbelief was too threatening… So this site is one of the few places I can have a conversation and vent frustrations. I learn a lot too – there are some brilliant minds in here.
