I think the title says it all. I mean, I could probably leave the post blank and most people would be like “yep, I agree!” However, since you are reading this, I might as well earn my keep. These past few weeks have been a great time to be a fan of reading stupid things on the internet. It seems like everyday there is something new posted that makes me go “umm, is my friend for real? Do they really believe this crap?”
I am sure some people will say things like “hey, I only posted that because it made me laugh, I do not actually believe it” or “I just wanted to start a discussion.” Well if that is the case, you should probably say that as you are posting. I (like most people) assume that if you post something, then that is your endorsement of it.
Anyways, here are a few of my favorite stupid things…
The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.
Does that sound like a guy who thinks we need some more religion in the White House? Or how about this one from Thomas Jefferson:
Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.
And okay, how about one final quote from James Madison:
The civil government functions with complete success by the total separation of the Church from the State.
So yeah, maybe we should take a cue from the Founding Fathers and leave religion out of government.
I am sure you have seen a bunch of these since the Supreme Court ruling. For some reason certain Christians think that SCOTUS should have to follow the laws set forth in the Bible. I will not even mention the stuff I said above (but seriously, see above about separation), but instead would like to point all the other stuff that will be illegal if we base our laws on the Bible:
Yep, that is right. The Bible is pretty much anti-bacon. And pork chops, sausage, ribs, etc. You know what else the Bible does not condone? Shellfish.
So I better start seeing people protesting outside Red Lobster about how eating there is an abomination. Actually, without even looking it up, I can almost guarantee the Bible has more to say about dietary restrictions that it does about homosexuality.
The Bible does speak a good bit about marriage though. And one thing it is fairly clear about is that marriage is forever. So divorce is pretty much a no-no! I think the punishment is stoning to death. Hmm, that will probably help lower the population.
Want to know something else the Bible condones? Rape. Well it does not really condone, but the punishment is not nearly as severe as say…talking to a woman on her period. If a girl is raped, the rapist has to pay the father some money and then marry the girl he raped. Yeah, that seems like a pretty shitty punishment.
I know what some of you are going to say “hey Josh, some of that stuff was from a long time ago, when society was a bit different.” Oh, so society changed their opinion on bacon, divorce, and rape…
Look people, SCOTUS did not say that everyone has to perform gay marriages. The government is not going to force the Catholic church to perform a gay wedding, nor will it force a mosque. Calm the hell down. Remember that whole church & state separation thing?
Also, no one is going to be forced to become gay. Relax. Just because two guys are getting married does not mean they are going to want to have some anal sex with you.
This one actually makes me laugh. I just love the kids face (this meme is always amusing). Unfortunately this is another case of people not really getting the point. I would like to make the argument again that how can you be so Pro-American Flag and yet also Pro-Confederate flag. That my friends is a special kind of stupid.
Honestly, there would be nothing wrong with white pride (especially since there is Irish pride, German pride, English pride, etc), except that 99.3% of the time when white people get together to discuss pride in their race, it usually is just an excuse to talk about how much they hate every other race. I think George Carlin said it best when it comes to pride:
