Yay Mediocrity

You know I’m almost happy that my readership stays at its low number. I’ve been perusing other blogs and finding that there are a lot of wackos out there commenting on things and just speaking out of their a$$. I don’t know if I would ever trade traffic for headache. Now I’m not afraid of people with different opinions, but what I find is that arguing with most lefties is like Simon Cowell trying to tell some of the weirdoes on American Idol that they have no talent. Nobody ever listens. Their beliefs are what is being challenged to them, not their ideas.

I’ve realized long ago that beliefs are too strong to be fought with logic. Beliefs are meant to defy logic; it’s called faith. What I don’t understand is that these people that firmly believe the crazy conspiracies and have faith in things like socialism, communism, and tolerance, find it stupid to have faith in God. Of all the things they believe in that have been disproved over and over, they feel that God, which will never be disproved, is an idiotic thing to believe in.

I think that the whole Pledge of Allegiance thing might have set this off for me. The people of infinite tolerance can’t seem to get over that God is a nondescript word that only has meaning for people that know who it is. I believe that Bob Dylan said, “Everybody serves somebody.” I think within that context all denominations and even people of no faith in a higher being can agree upon. So who is God for an atheist? Chance, evolution, themselves, money, whatever it is that makes them do, or want to do good is their god. I’ve recited the Pledge enough times to know that I’ve never said "One nation under the Judea/Christian God." So what is it hurting really? What God or religion is the Pledge of Allegiance pointing to? Most people would say that because the founding fathers were Christian than it’s obviously pointing toward a Judea/Christian God. I say to them, then why isn’t the word Christ all over the constitution and other historical documents that helped shape this country? Anyway, I doubt this post was worth reading but just some things I thought about when I heard the decision about the Pledge of Allegiance. I’m just glad I don’t get a lot of crazy lefty, communist, conspiracy theory comments.

Let me play lefty.

Your God scares me. I know that I'm doomed to spend an eternity in hell for my sins so I choose not to believe in it. If I don't believe in something than it can't hurt me.

Maybe it is fear that fuels the lefty.

This newdow dork is so zealous that it hints of mental disorder or such self hatred that he wants to spread that self hatred to all just to make it fair. Or something...

Nice post.

Jeepers Doc, that's some heavy stuff, and very well said! Leftards are scared of God 'cause believing would mean they'd have to give up their hedonistic ways.

I find it to be pretty pathetic that in my own country, where we have struggled past so many hurtles, such as slavery,women's rights and "equal opportunities" for all "minorities", about the only thing you can be anymore and still be ostrasized is a white Christian male. If you are gay, atheist, the Anti-Christ, well that is ok, slander the President, piss on the flag, go AWOL from the military, arrrrgh

Atheist liberals tell us on one hand that the word God is a danger to them and their children. They then tell us that forcing gay transgender tolerance materials on children is harmless.

Why is the word God so dangerous to them? It's simple; Because their spirituality is so weak. People need to answer questions of existence and mortality. It's part of the super-curiosity of faith which makes us the dominant force on this planet.

People will always be compelled to fill that need. That is why a liberal society breeds broken minds like John Walker Lindh, the American taliban, when it removes morality, culture and faith. The individual finds that need on his own, with tragic results.

I can't wait until they try and take "In God we Trust" off of US currency! Why don't all the so called "atheists" refuse to get paid at their jobs, they shouldn't be forced to use currency because it has THAT on it!

DPT,
To accept and beleive there is a God, then requires action on your part. Lefty's refuse to go down that road simply because believing there is a higher power, creates a guilty consience.

Keep preaching it BROTHER!!!!

Amen, brother. Amen. May the Judeo/Christian God bless you.

Oops, here come the ACLU! Better run!

George W. Bush attempts to institute a theocracy so that Republicans and the Xtian coalition can oppress and steal the money of the majority in this country who happen to be non-Xtian liberals to fund his plots of world domination. Blood for oil? Only part of his maniacal plan! Statistics showing a conservaty leaning majority are lies! Deceitful lies I tell you! I have never even met one, there's cold hard proof!!

They try to scare us with hell if we won't say the pledge so they can impose their fundy beliefs. There is NO devil. NO god. NO hell! Bush is a cunning pawn of Satan with an IQ little above 40 who panders to joos. Joooos!

Don't even get me started on that one.

Oo

Unfortunately I think it is real...now fuck me if I am wrong, but if there is no "God" and "no devil" how can Geroge Bush be a pawn of Satan? Stupid gay hippie chick..........

I believe in God, but don't require anyone else to. The point is that if the lines are blurred between church and state, problems arise, as has been the case for centuries. What gets me is that this gets all kind of play in the press, much like flag burning, which was never much of a "Issue" but more of an easy slam dunk for politicos to yell and scream about ("See, I'm patriotic!"). Don;t the courts have more important cases to worry about? THe athiest who brought this up should simply instruct those children to omit the word "God" when reciting, and move along.
Regarding our founding fathers, I've read that the bigwugs Washington, Jefferson, Adams) were Deists - they believed in God, but felt eh pretty much set up the world and took off.
