“God gave my son autism because I once had an abortion”

Toni Braxton had an abortion. She was taking a drug called Accutane. It’s anti-acne drug. It was usually used as a chemotherapy drug for brain and pancreatic cancers. The goal for Accutane as an acne drug was to shrink and eliminate sebum-producing cells in the skin. The chemicals in Accutane attacks rapidly reproducing cells like those of a developing fetus. Embryos exposed to the drug can have severe birth defects.

Everyone who “makes it” isn’t all that bright. Toni Braxton is one of those dull crayons in a box of 64. “God gave my son autism because I once had an abortion” is the most insulting sentence I’ve read in all of 2 days. She insulted women who had abortions and women who gave birth to autistic kids – as well as the kids themselves.

Technically, in a morbid unrealistic sense, she’s absolutely right. Her god – if it was real – did punish her for having an abortion, or eating pork, or wearing clothes of two different fabrics. See where I’m getting at? It could have been a plethora of things. While staying within her realm of logic, god is a petty, vindictive, childish, prick. Now, if I was her – which I’m glad I’m not – I wouldn’t worship an ass-wipe who gave my son autism. So in order to punish HER for something, her imaginary friend in the sky, who loves her, mind you, put lifelong suffering on someone else. Her child didn’t make her have the abortion, she got the abortion, so why isn’t god punishing her directly? Simple. He/She/It doesn’t exist.

It’s a cop-out excuse. She can’t deal with the fact her son has autism. She’s giving credit for an invisible man in the sky because she had a baby with autism. She’s also making it about herself. It’s like she believes the sun rises and sets on her ass. It doesn’t. How moronic and self-absorbed do you have to be to believe that god is that involved in your life?

If she had learned when she was young to be extremely careful about drugs when pregnant or when possibly becoming pregnant, and about the power of chemistry instead of some irrelevant passage from an old book the abortion would not have been necessary.

I’m not even going to talk about how she’s anti-vaccine because her son was given the MMR vaccine and that’s when she noticed the signs that her son had autism.

To say your is son an object used to punish you is fucked up. When you start publicly calling it a punishment from god, what does that say about how you feel about your kid and their condition? Her god of choice didn’t punish her with an autistic son because having an autistic son isn’t a punishment.

That’s my take on it.

The Anti-Vaccination Crowd Are Hopeless!

I didn’t know where to post this so I’ll post it here. There’s a reason why children and adults get vaccinated. It’s to keep old diseases – like Polio – from resurfacing.

Ohio Measles Outbreak is Biggest in U.S. Since 1996

It’s only getting worse as more parents send their non-vaccinated offspring to school. Children are being put at risk. Their parents aren’t getting the correct information because they already have it set in their mind that what they know is correct. They’ve convinced themselves that vaccinations causes autism, By their logic, a dead child is better off than one with autism.

If you still believe that vaccines causes autism, I have the perfect article for you. I hope you like it. People who listen to every word that Jenny McCarthy and people like her says, I have something to tell you: They don’t know what they’re talking about! Not vaccinating your child – to me – is child abuse. Aside from that, you’re also endangering the lives of other people’s children and you’re absolutely hopeless for getting your parenting advice from Jenny McCarthy.

Here’s proof that people don’t have the slightest clue to what they’re saying:

Exhibit A:

I will never vaccinate my children. that’s not natural and it means it’s not gods way. we can’t play god, people! if my children catch a deadly disease, it’s because god intended it, but if I vaccinate them and they become autistic, it’s all my fault. anyone who vaccinated their children will go to hell, end of discussion

I’m not sure where exactly in the bible where Jesus tells anyone not to vaccinate their kids. Since that person’s reasoning is that “it’s not natural” they should say goodbye to glasses, clothes, electricity, heating, refrigerators, medicine, stoves, washing machines, air conditioners, etc.

Vaccinate your kids!

Can you imagine telling the people of a third world country that you chose not to vaccinate you and your family while they’re fighting off their 3rd case of a diseases that you can easily be vaccinated against? If you’re anti-vaccination you are selfish, ignorant, naive, and should just go find a cave to live in.

 Just for shits and giggles:

Exhibit B:

Vaccinated kids still get chicken pox – yet parents like you are still putting their kids through painful vaccinations for NOTHING. You’re giving money to corporations who want to feed off your kids pain. Ridiculous. DO SOME RESEARCH.

There are a lot of reasons to why a child would still get chicken pox. To keep other children from getting it would be to vaccinate your child. Ever heard of herd immunity? If there’s a child that cannot be vaccinated because they could be immunocompromised, the other children who were vaccinated for chicken pox are protecting the immunocompromised. People who are vaccinated can in fact still get chicken pox and or other diseases that they were vaccinated for.

Anti-vaccine Body Count

Fortunately, the vaccination has taught your body how to fight and it’s not nearly as severe as it used to be or would be were you not vaccinated. The vaccine has made us go from 4 million cases a year to only 400,000 cases. Vaccines protect you, whether corporations make money from it or not. They also protect those who can’t even get them when those who can, do. If you seriously think that the your health, you children’s health, and the health of those around you are less important than giving the middle finger to a corporation, then there is nothing anyone can do. But try doing some research first, before you make such a rash, immature decision that will ultimately hurt those around you.

But of course, facts won’t change the minds of anti-vaxxers. Please realize that I am well aware that vaccines are not 100% effective. Modern medicine is unfortunately not infallible, as nice as that would be. Of course, some people suffer allergic reactions to vaccines. Of course, some people will end up with a weakened version of the disease. Guess what though? Without getting vaccinated, the chance of someone contracting a deadly disease is MUCH higher. A vaccinated person is much less likely to die from a reaction to a polio vaccine than a person who wasn’t vaccinated is. You have an estimated 1 in 100,000 chance to suffer an allergic reaction to a vaccine (0.001%), but adults who get polio have up to a 30% chance of dying (2-5% for children).

If this isn’t a prime example of evolution and natural selection, I don’t know what is.

“My friend shared something from your page and I’m offended!”

So?

What exactly does that have to do with Black Atheists as a whole? Shouldn’t you be taking that up with the person that shared something from our page on THEIR wall? After I post something, I have no control who shares what, when or where. It’s obvious that a lot of people don’t understand how Facebook work.

Since that seems to be a growing case on BA, I’m going to show you guys how easy, fast and simple it is to build a bridge and get over it.

Exhibit A:

damnyo

Now get over it.

The time you spend sending me messages, trolling and spamming the Black Atheist Facebook page with your disapproval of our existence, you could have easily shrugged it off and hidden whatever it was that pissed you off. That or simply scroll past the highly offensive content. But of course, that’s too much like right.

If you’re coming to BA, hopefully it’s to have a debate and to not tell us you’re going to pray for us because you lack a better argument.

Um, wut?: Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus [Video]

An atheist friend sent me this video to check out. She LOVED it. It’s a poem made by a guy who loves Jesus, but hates religion. A poem.

I don’t see what there was to love about it. She told me to spread it around so, here I am, doing just that.

The Milk of Jesus

At the last supper, Jesus takes the bread, blesses it, and says,

“Take this, all of you, and eat it, for this is my body.”

He then proceeds to bless the wine and says,

“Take this, all of you, and drink it, for this is my blood.”

Finally, he picks up the milk, but Peter looks at him and says,

“You can fuck off.”

Addressing The Butt-Hurt: “Your Page is Offensive!”

So?

This is for the atheists and theists. If you don’t like the content in which is on my blog/Facebook page, no one is forcing you to stick around.

Maybe I should have a disclaimer:
Warning: This page may cause butt-hurt, if you have the skin of unborn fetus, please exit stage left.

phbh

Seriously, apply as much as needed and then get the fuck on.

I’m truly getting sick and tired of the butt-hurt atheists mostly. I post a picture about Jews they get offended. My co-owner posts an image about having sex with an inflatable Jesus and they get offended (you know who you are). All I’m saying is, everything isn’t going to be Gaussian blurred image in the background, with a quote in the foreground. It’s not going to be about Neil deGrasse Tyson, or Carl Sagan all of the time. I shouldn’t have to say this but, everything isn’t going to be unicorn farts of rainbows and skittles.

I’m definitely getting tired of THIS shit:

butthurt

I don’t need you to give me an ethics lesson, nor do I need you to give me posting etiquette lessons. I’ll post what the fuck I want! If it’s within the guidelines of Facebook, I don’t give a shit about how you feel.

Now, I bet next week, it’s going to be some more bullshit, and all I’m going to do is post this link under their comments and that’s it. Read it, don’t read it. I’m washing my hands of ya’.

What’s funny, it’s usually JUST ONE of you. Every now and again, one of you come out of the woodwork after you supposedly had enough. Well this my version of having enough. You butt-hurt cry-babies bitch and moan like I cross some invisible boundary that only you can see. It’s the internet, get the fuck over it. If you don’t like the content, oh the-fuck well.

Oh, I didn’t forget about you theist trolls, not much to say except that you need new material. Please don’t expect me to respect your religion any time soon. Thanks.
