Two things happened this morning that made me want to hop on here and type up something blasting Christianity once again…and it’s sad that this shit happens daily.

FIRST THING - I check Facebook this morning and read someone posting the lame ass ‘copy/paste” if you’re ______ is in heaven. Well, based on the Christian handbook (The Bible), your loved ones are NOT in heaven, but chilling in the ground and waiting on judgment day.

1 Corinthians 15:51-53

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

These verses tell us that the dead shall be raised and changed….basically to a spiritual form to face final judgment.

Now, why would your loved ones need to be raised from the dead to face final judgment if they are already in heaven? Did God let them in on the secret early, let them get a preview of heaven? This is just one (of many) facts from the Bible that Christians don’t agree with, so they don’t teach it and basically teach what the people WANT to hear instead of what is actually there.

SECOND THING - The Texas Board of Education adopts a new social studies and history guideline. Basically, a board (mostly made up of Christian Republicans) is playing politics with education and trying to push their agendas…which is just another way to brainwash kids into growing up both Christian and Republican.

The problem is that the textbooks that Texas uses are used through most of the country.

One thing that was trying to get changed is using B.C.E - C.E instead of B.C - A.D. Currently, what we use is based on fictional stories from the Bible. B.C.E (Before (Current, Common or Christian) and C.E. would be something that EVERYONE could use, not just Christians. You could say it means current or Christian, depending on your beliefs.


Christians shot that down because it wasn’t forcing everyone to acknowledge their beliefs and they just can’t have that.

But it doesn’t stop there, it was also voted to change our U. S. government to a “constitutional republic” rather than “democratic”; I guess democratic was too close to Democrat.

Other changes were made to try to tone down the influence of Athiest’s such as Thomas Jefferson and strengthening the requirements on teaching Judeo-Christian influences of the nation’s Founding Fathers and attempting to water down rationale for the separation of church and state.

This is how you get into the situation we are in now; you allow a few people to “tweak” historical facts here and there, and over years those facts will be forgotten. The fact is that our nation was founded on “freedom of religion”, many of our Founding Fathers were either Atheist or just against Christianity in general and they REFUSED to acknowledge Christianity as an influence or a national religion, which is exactly why this nation was created.

However, with each small tweak here and change there, the Christians are slowly trying to change history to reflect their “point of view” which happens to be the exact opposite of the truth….

Love, Peace and Sharkyness!

I am hopeful that with a sustained movement in TX, there will be an amendment passed that will allow for the standards to be revised before the 10 years is up. We're talking about a whole generation of kids who's parents will have to fill in the rather sizable blanks for them. I am hoping that these parents can find copies of their old history books to help them with this.
These parents will also have to begin early. (Before the school starts to teach these topics) Once a child goes to school and learns something that their parents haven't addressed, they will treat their parents' input with a healthy dose of skepticism. ("Well that's what they taught when you went to school mom, but they've improved their understanding of history since then. Just think of all the things that science has learned since you went to school right? Your books are just out of date.")

Or we could just sell Texas back to Mexico.

It's official without a doubt, USA = theocracy.
It's time to start blasting back by taking over and locking up the crazies, it's nothing new, it's called damage control, lock them up in nut farms, I'm sick of this type of BS and can't wait until I can afford to move to a more respectful to reality country then what the USA.

Next will come Christian death camps to get rid of the unclean and heathens, I am not waiting for what history already shows them capable of doing, I say it's time we stop them, place them in camps and educate them in a thing called reality, those who don't adapt can be forced to work (for money) and live in reservations like they did to the indians and so many others, extreame, sure, but less so then what they have done through out history and continue to do.

Sure, have your personal believes, but keep that shit to your self and people who share such interests with you, stop hijacking the children who are legally required to go to public school.
Boycott these text book companies, hijack their trucks and burn the books, do something, as we're beyond policaly capable of defending, it's a waste of breath people, we have small gains and bigger losses, it's time for some real affirmative actions!
