The last Pope as head of the Catholic Church was a disgrace. Any apologist here can shut the f**k up already. Have a read....
Ugh that just makes me sick to my stomach. I knew he was a corrupt creep, but I had not realised how bad that man is. Glad I'm not Catholic anymore and I never will be
Religions are more and more focusing on the 3rd world. Reason is that they're aware of how they're losing their fight in the civilized portions of the world, so in order to keep their religion alive, they're trying to find groups of people they can still fool.
Christianity made the mistake of allowing civilization to progress, and with scientific progress obviously religion will die out, so now they lost the west. But look at Islam. Islam did it right, it forced its people to stay in the dark ages up to this date, so they don't have this problem, or at least not as much as Christianity does.
Yes, the Imam’s are much better at “mushroom management”, i.e. keeping people in the dark and feeding them shit. It is all down to education.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said….”When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said "Let us pray." We closed our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the land”
The Abiding Truth Ministry, run by Pastor Scott Lively in Springfield, Massachusetts, has played an important role in pushing for 'death or prison for gays' in Uganda.
So what's a GLBT Ugandan to do? File a lawsuit against Scott Lively in US Court for crimes against humanity. Lively tried to get the case dismissed, but was overruled in August. Round one goes to the Ugandans.
The case is moving forward into the 'discovery' phase. Lively is under a bright spotlight. Now he will have to answer for what he has done. I hope they nail the murderous bastard to the wall.
Sexual Minorities Uganda, an umbrella organization located in Kampala, Uganda, which represents the interests of its constituent member organizations in advocating for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (“LGBTI”) in Uganda, brought this case against against defendant Scott LIVELY, a U.S.-based attorney, author, and self-described world-leading expert on the “gay movement,” for the decade-long campaign he has waged, in agreement and coordination with his Ugandan counterparts, to persecute persons on the basis of their gender and/or sexual orientation and gender identity.
The case is brought under the Alien Tort Statute (“ATS”), 28 U.S.C. §1350, which provides federal jurisdiction for “any civil action by an alien, for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.” United States Supreme Court has affirmed the use of the ATS as a remedy for serious violations of international law norms that are widely accepted and clearly defined. Persecution, as a crime against humanity that is universally proscribed and clearly defined in international law, is such a violation. Persecution is defined in international law as the “intentional and severe deprivation of fundamental rights contrary to international law by reason of the identity of the group or collectivity.”
No need to go to Uganda. This has already gone bacterial last year, but the spoof I posted is pure Au.
If only someone could invent a magical reality pill that allows the patient to operate strictly on logic and reasoning. These self-induced states of mental assent into fairydom are hard to cope with. I mean, how can you explain to these deluded individuals that the exhilaration and soothing excitement they are experiencing is not credible? They feel comforted swaying their upheld hands back and forth. It feels good therefore it must be valid. Oh, really?
Sadly, I am a little concerned about the 'pill' form of logic or reasoning. Without some example of modeling for 'reasoning' I expect that there will only garbage in/garbage out.
