“It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
This type of thinking is very dangerous. Oh, the world is cruel and heartless? Well guess what: it’s always been that way and always will be. Neglecting to teach your offspring how to deal with this little thing called reality is child abuse.
Ah, yes.. let’s ignore our basic responsibilities as parents to prepare our children for the day that they will no longer have mommy or daddy around to protect them. “That’s not our job.” What an absolute disgrace.
Of course I’m not advocating that we not teach our children to love their fellow human beings, but when you protect your child from every little thing that could possibly cause them harm or anguish, you’re not teaching them how to find a way to deal with it. This leaves them unprepared for life on their own.
I’m nearly wearing out my ‘unsubscribe’ button on Facebook trying to keep these stupid posts off of my news feed. I’m feeling pretty spiteful today and haven’t taken any swings at Christianity lately, so here’s my attempt at sarcastic remarks to this idiotic display of bullshit.
**A MUST READ***
A man of 32 years, was smoking, while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:’God, that’s for you.’
He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.
Died of lung cancer in a horrible manner? As opposed to dying of lung cancer in a graceful, painless manner? This man with no name shall surely go down in history for his sinful behavior.
The man who built the Titanic
After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.
With an ironic tone he said: ‘Not even God can sink it’
The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic
Yes, the one man who single-handedly built the Titanic. Making exaggarations is unacceptable in Christianity. The architects of the Titanic, who were probably Christian themselves, where clearly describing how technologically advanced of a ship it was for that time period.
Marilyn Monroe (Actress)
She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.
He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.
After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said:
‘I don’t need your Jesus’.
A week later, she was found dead in her apartment
Apparently if you offend a famous Christian evangelist, they’ll summon their almighty God to put you to death. But it kind of brings up the question: Why did God wait 13 years to kill John Lennon?
Bon Scott (Singer)
The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:
‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.
On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.
Aww shiiit.. God must have been piiiiiissed.
Campinas (IN 2005)
In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend…..
The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:
‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’
She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘
Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died, the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.
The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken
Putting a year in quotes makes it look like you’ve cited sources and therefore have a credible story (2012).
Mother’s Translation: “Welp.. you’re already sitting in this car with your irresponsible friends. There’s nothing I can possibly do as your mother, a person responsible for your safety and well-being, but give up and let God decide whether or not you’ll die if you guys get into a car accident.”
Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist & entertainer) said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.
In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.
God sure knows how to show his love and affection. I like how they mention that the Bible is the (Word of God) as though it validates everything in it or that people forgot. OMG!!! Totally didn’t realize what the Bible was about!! Praise the Lord!!!!
Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.
Many have died, but only Jesus died and rise again, and he is still alive….
I have done my part by sharing this with you, Jesus said ‘If you are embarrassed about me,
I will also be embarrassed about you before my father.’
You are my 8 in 8 seconds. I am not breaking this.. No way!
I’M TOLD THIS WORKS!!!!! Bishop T..D. Jakes ‘8 Second Prayer.’ Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!
I think you meant “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” I don’t even identify as Christian and I know that (thanks to the thousands of assholes on the internet who feel the need to remind me).
“I have done my part by sharing this with you…”
Gee thanks for all of the effort you put into saving my everlasting soul. I’m glad you care enough to inconvenience yourself by spreading the message that God don’t fuck around when it comes to peeps dissin him.
[stupid prayer omitted]
In spite of all these idiots sharing that stupid little “gas out” protest thing on Facebook, I’m going to buy twice as much gas as I normally would (not really because I don’t have anywhere to put it but that’s besides the point). If you’re seeing that crap all over your newsfeed, copy and paste my points below to educate these people.
1) There is no evidence of a “gas out” in April of ‘97 [or any other date] that made gas prices drop 30 cents a gallon. (http://www.snopes.com/politics/gasoline/nogas.asp)
2) Buying the day before or after just neutralizes the whole thing. If you really want to protest something you have to inconvenience yourself. In this case, it means cutting back on gasoline for MORE THAN A DAY. If every little bit helps where would a lot get you? Try doing it for the rest of your life.. oh but then if you didn’t use gas very often it wouldn’t make much of a difference what the price was now would it?
3) Even if oil companies were intimidated by a bunch of lazy online protesters, this type of thing just notifies them of the protest so they can adjust accordingly.
4) The people this type of thing hurts is independent gas station owners who pretty much have no control over the price and also have very small profit margins to begin with (approximately $0.03/gallon last I heard). Gas station profit comes mostly from the items inside the store (like soft drinks and candy).
This whole privilege war is nothing but people trying to one up each other.
“Oh, you get ridiculed for something? Well I get ridiculed for twice as much, so there! Take that! You can’t compete with me for I am the most ridiculed person in the whole world!!”
Other than maybe venting frustration, it doesn’t solve one damn thing to point out somebody’s privileges. I could spend a whole day on my shitty tumblr account talking about how people with more money than me have it better but it won’t get me anywhere.
Dwelling on the fact that some people have it better than you is a very negative outlook on life. If you keep telling yourself your life sucks, it will always suck.
You’re also pro-beards.
Add me to the non-cargos side. Minimalist.. I don’t have enough shit to put in the pockets of cargo shorts so I wear normal shorts.
Beards are handy though.
“Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear.
Beer before Liquor, never been sicker.”
Eat some crackers and drink plenty of water and avoid a hangover.
Here’s to an irrelevant post that has nothing to do with the tags associated with it!
“where are you going to college”
“what do you want to go to college for”
“have you decided what you want to do with the rest of your life based on 12 years of studying material that has little real world practical applicability”
I’m almost out of college and still don’t know and want people to stop asking me about it.

I was driving down the interstate one day and hit a construction zone which required traffic to go 55mph instead of 70. So I lowered my speed; not because it’s illegal to go over the speed limit or that there’s a chance I’d get a double fine if I were caught speeding, but because I have consideration towards those who have to work to maintain and update roads for assholes who don’t give a shit about their safety. Some people are all, “I deserve the right to safety! Take away guns!” But then they get in their 3000 pound death machines and put other people’s lives at risk by driving like inconsiderate morons.
I need feminism because I hate fedoras. You simply do not wear a fedora with khaki cargo shorts and a t-shirt. Ugh, it drives me insane. Fedora enthusiasts are all the same. They go to Wal-Mart to buy some socks and the hat section catches their eye. They go over to check them out and see a fedora. Thinking that nobody else in the world is sophisticated enough to wear one, they make a purchase. Wearing the fedora becomes their “thing”. They aspire to become “that mysterious guy/girl with the fedora.” Ooo.. look out everyone! We’ve got a modern day mobster on our hands. Get out of the way before they wield their Tommy gun.
Well I’ve got news for you, Fedora the Explorer, only a handful of people can actually pull off wearing a fedora and you’re not one of them. Maybe you could get away with wearing one with a matching suit but even that can lead to an ill-advised fashion no-no. So next time you think you’ll be original by wearing a fedora, or any article of clothing or accessory for that matter, think again. You just look like all of the other trendy assholes who are wearing the same thing.
I immediately stop reading when I see the words “cisgender”.
