The creator of this video left all the links in this single video in the about section.
Seriously, how stupid are you?
The old testament was justification for all of the slavery in the south. If you are black and Christian, you’re selling out to the system that enslaved your forefathers for generations and produced a system of indoctrination to continue that cycle of abuse.
Don’t get me wrong, some of the earliest Christians were black and some of the earliest Christian communities were in Africa, but how could you forget the past 500 years and West Africa‘s relationship to Europe and America?
What’s crazier? A Black Mormon. I think that’s more ridiculous than a Black Christian.
If you know of ’31 Status’, I would run away from them as fast as possible. They’re by far the most delusional. Their whole reason of existence is based around proverbs 31. They can tell women are with purpose, are beautiful, are strong and independent without the bible, but will they? No. Why? Because. Because why? You’re sheep and they hand feed you the very same nitpicked bible scriptures your parents nitpicked; your pastor nitpicked. Yes, outright they’re good, but they’re also hypocrites.
If they really knew the bible, they wouldn’t be using that shit to push their agenda; an agenda that you’re already wrapped up in.
A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants. (SLAVES!)
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
She’s a slave herself and all-the-while, where is this so-called husband? What the fuck is he doing? He’s sitting on his ass. Mind you, there are different versions of this but spews the same nonsense.
Status 31′s Website: “Who we are?”
The mission of the 31 Status movement is to show women around the world what a Proverbs 31 woman looks like in todays generation. We want to set a new standard of beauty in a world that tells us sex and seduction is the only way to find love. We believe true love comes from God, and we want to help you know Him and know yourself in a greater way. We want to empower and encourage you to better yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually. Finally, our goal above all else is for you to embrace “Who and Whose you are” as a female and as a 31.
As our organization grows, we plan to provide avenues for global outreach and recovery centers. Join us through prayer and spreading the word as we impact women worldwide.
You don’t need prayer and you for damn sure don’t need god. Status 31 isn’t the only culprit, here, but it’s the most recent one that pissed me off. Let’s play, ‘Find the Contradiction’!:
1 Corinthians 7:3-9
The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. Now as a concession, not a command, I say this. I wish that all were as I myself am. But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another.
Did you find it?
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word.
Where is it?
1 Timothy 2:11-12
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
You’re so special to god, yet you get treated like shit. You’re not even supposed to open your mouth! Slavery is throughout the entire bible but you disregard all of that. It doesn’t matter that your ancestors were brought here and manipulated, huh? Right – it has nothing to do with you and the present. Don’t be fooled, it has a lot to do with the present – seeing as the bible isn’t a book that was kept in the past. It’s in my present, holding us back – well, not me, you.
Christianity is completely okay with slavery. This is one customs of the Old Testament that many “Christians” like to pretend don’t exist. Christ himself supports a slavery system in multiple teachings. “But, it’s from the Old Testament, so it doesn’t matter”. You’re still following the same god, right? A god that had to revise the old testament into a new testament, right? Okay, then.
Notice how proverbs 31 is moot and pointless? Name one person who follows this bullshit down to the letter today. Adultery lusting, hell, even the roles have changed. The woman is at home, making sandwiches, doing laundry and the man is building the homes, making the greenbacks. Where’s your god, now? It seems like it’s okay to disregard that as well as the book of Leviticus (yep, you fucking hypocrites – I went there) seeing as so much has changed since then.
You can be virtuous without god, as well as good.
Therefore, it does not deserve my respect.
The greatest rebuttal to said nonsense was that of one of our members:
“Dear atheists, can science protect you?” – It already has. Thanks to science I am able to go to the doctor and get antibiotic when I’m sick. My car is also safer to drive thanks to scientific tests and analysis.
“Did science expand your breast with your initial breath?” – Science itself can not do anything. We learn how phenomena take place and how nature works through science.
“Your promotion of science is enabling governments to take actions based on equations. Not based on wisdom seeking justice or justice seeking wisdom; the infinite equation.” – Our promotion of science? Science is not only promoted by Atheists, it has always been promoted and was pioneered by theists. Wisdom is nothing more than learning your faults over time and reflecting on what could have been to better the outcome of those faults. That is a general form of science in the scale of a lifetime regarding personal choices.
“Equations that do not benefit community, sustaining freedom and natural rights. Yes, you have been deceived before and now in combative nature you seek to be deceived at your own game.” – Equations such as 1+1 or the observation that homosexuality is not unnatural and therefore should not be banned? Last I checked, it was specific faiths trying to inhibit our nature, not science. Science does nothing but explains how it is that nature works and theorizes as to why.
“Rather than to continue to trust in God and revive your faith.” If you pledge covenant to one, how can you another? I assure you, if you pledge covenant to science, the damnation of your youth in inevitable.” – Okay, this is fucking ridiculous. First off, you can accept science (which is the study of nature and natural laws through a process which allows us to try to bypass our biases because they have a tendency to cloud the truth) and still be religious. As a believer, you probably think that God is outside of the laws of nature and is eternal. With that belief in place, there is nothing to say that God didn’t create the Universe. If you want to believe that He did, that’s fine, but you can’t ignore everything within his creation and then tell us that WE’RE damned for actually accepting it.
For those of you who are religious yet reject science, you are more blind then I, I assure you. If, for the sake of argument, God exists and has created everything that we observe in the natural world, and we use the process of science to be more conclusive about our observations, by denying what we find, aren’t you in essence denying your God’s creation as well? – Theresa C.
Oh, behold the power of prayer!
First, I love your page. Thank you for maintaining it. Next, I am atheist, but not black, though my husband is; he really likes your page, too.
Because this is relevant to many African Americans, I wanted to share with you what happened last Friday. My father-in-law died and I posted about it on my page. I’ve copied and pasted the post below:
For those of you who don’t know, my father-in-law died last Thursday. We attended a mosque for the service, even though he was Hebrew, not Muslim. The experience was pretty traumatic. Here’s what happened:So, when we arrived for dad’s funeral, I was dressed from neck to feet. But I couldn’t find a scarf, so my hair was up. We had to use a special “women’s entrance”. Then we had to remove our shoes. We entered our section, which was walled off with a window to the men’s side. So we could see them and at the time I didn’t know, but it was one-way glass. There were already a few women there. There were broad lines on the floor like pews, but just lines in the carpet. There were two rows of chairs at the back for nursing mothers and infirm women. We were told to sit there since we wouldn’t be participating in prayer. After about half an hour, we were lead to dad’s body, and had to say, “As-salamu alaykum” to him. I said it, but also said (even though I know he couldn’t hear), “bye, dad”. So the women insulted me in Farsi, but didn’t know my mother-in-law could hear them. They said that I was disrespectful. She asked me a couple of minutes later why I didn’t say it and I told her what had happened, but she’d already set them straight…
Then we were led back to the women’s section, and service started soon after. It wasn’t a funeral service. It was a full-blown service, because it happened to coincide with their Friday meetings. So the Imam, like I said, was talking about jihad, sacrifice, and how it’s shameful that the UN gets to Sudan before the Muslims do to help. Y’know, “what have YOU sacrificed? How have you helped to spread Islam? Before you take vacations you should consider how much $ you have or haven’t given…” The terrifying part was that he kept using the key words sacrifice and jihad…over and over and over! Everyone kept looking at my hair. Then we went to the cemetery. I still wasn’t allowed to have any contact with my husband or son. All the men blocked our view, and we were at least 16 yards from the graveside. Before I knew it, they’d filled the grave and it was over. My husband was LIVID! Even worse, the “sister” who was explaining what was going on to us KNEW that this was insane. She said, “There’s Islam custom and then there’s “HISlam‘.”My husband didn’t know until afterward, exactly how we were treated.
Being a undercover atheist can sometimes be the most annoying thing ever, but it is a annoyance that I must deal with if I plan to have any piece of mind. Now when I say undercover atheist, I am not referring to a nonbeliever who pretends to be a christian just to see what goes on inside the church, I have more of a life than that (hopefully I didn’t offend anyone if that is something that you partake in). I am referring to the fact that I hide my true beliefs in order to keep drama down with friends and issues with my family at bay.
My family is very religious. I have always wanted to tell them of my disbelief in our supreme, righteous, all knowing daddy (AKA god) but I fear what the consequences of that might be. I NEED MY FAMILY! I need to be able to talk to them constantly. I need to be able to attend family dinners and not have everyone treat me as if I am a step child. So I hide how I truly feel about religion in order to protect myself from losing any love from my family. I go to church with them sometimes, listen to them pray, and I will even give them a dollar or two for the “building fund that never seems to add anything to building.” Thats about as far as I will go though.
Now I know most of you are probably saying that, “I should not have to hide my true self from my family. They should love me know matter what I believe in.” Well that is true but you must also remember that this is religion that we are talking about. Religion has a way of making parents kill their children, preachers butt fucking little boys, countries going to war and killing millions, etc, etc!! My family might be understanding and love me anyway, but that is a risk that I am not willing to take. I would much rather sacrifice being a open atheist rather than be without my family. That might change one day in the future but at this current point in time, that is how I am.
When it comes to my friends, I tend to be a little more vocal about my beliefs but I hardly just tell people that I’m a atheist. Friends are easy to replace and I tend to surround myself with people who are not judgmental. I’m a geek and I love science so the people I hang with are usually the same way. I do have a few however, that are stupidly religious (Is stupidly a word? Like someone please tell me as I’m to lazy to google it). If you say one bad thing about the bible, they get all offended. Yesterday, I said “fuck you preacher, talking about come to church on time and your ass be late for every church event there is,”on twitter. My ex girlfriend (notice I said ex) got so offended, that she went on a big rant about how I was going to hell. My reply to her of course was that “I love the heat” LOL.
So that is my “Undercover Atheist” life in a nutshell. Now for all of you who are going to call me weak and a hypocrite, take this into consideration. Imagine you are a young man who just graduated from college. You are going to the Air Force in April but you have little money on hand and a ton of bills to pay. You are the victim of a crapy economy so finding steady work is hard to come by until you leave in April. The last thing you need is to be fighting with family and friends when you seriously need their help. Well if that alters your opinion of the situation, know that that is my current state. I really need all of my bridges intact.
If you are going through something similar, please share.
I’m not really big on introductions but let me give you a very brief summary of who I am. My name is Rodney and I’m a geek. I graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelors of Science in Computer information Systems. I’m currently 23 years old and will be joining the USAF in the upcoming months. I love technology, politics, and recently have grown to love blogging (Ironic seeing that I have always hated English). But that’s enough of that; lets get to the point of this rant.
I was born and raised in a Christian environment. When I was 8, I became a member of a church and attended worship services and bible class every week. I said my prayers at night, read my bible, and tried to follow the bible as closely as possible and without blemish. I was what they call “a good Christian child.” Now after reading that, you might wonder how is it that I stopped believing in god?
Retracing over my childhood, I was always the skeptical type. I loved math, science, and history. I wanted evidence for everything. If I were told something that did not make sense, I would question it and demand proof. This eventually started interfering with my teachings in church. There were far to many logical fallacies contained in the bible for my liking. That’s when I started questioning everything I was being told.
It first started with small questions like where did god come from and how did a virgin have a baby. Of course I would get the typical “he was always here” and “it was the power of god” answers. These answers were not satisfactory to me but they were the best answers I would receive. As I became older, I urged for more precise answers. How was it possible to flood the entire planet and where did all the water go? Why would the devil leave heaven if it were so great? What makes Christianity right and other religions wrong? Why does the bible contradict itself? As you can see, there were a lot questions that I needed answered.
I started praying and searching for answers to all of my questions. I had counseling sessions with preachers, went to every church event possible, and even took a course in religion (huge waste of time). I wanted to believe that god was real. I wanted to believe in heaven and the hope of eternal life. Heck, I wanted to believe that if I paid my tithe to the church, I would be financially blessed. After reasoning with myself, it became obvious. I did not believe in “god.”
I had allowed myself to follow a religion without making sanity of it first. All the wasted time spent in church when I could have been getting production out of my life. All the money I had given to the church when I could have put it to much better use. I had been hoodwinked! Oh how disappointed was I in my inability to match religion with fairy tales.
But yea, that’s my short story. Notice that I like to keep my rants short and simply worded. I have since become an undercover atheist, which I will tell you guys about at a later time. Please share your experiences, if any, with me in the comment section. Also feel free to criticize the living hell (if there is one) out of me if you want, doesn’t matter.
“Behold,I will cast her into a bed,and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation,except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” (Revelation 2:22-23)
Kill enemies while others watch
“But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.” (Luke 19:27)
“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:26)
Divide and conquer
“I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning! 50 I have a terrible baptism of suffering ahead of me, and I am under a heavy burden until it is accomplished. 51 Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! 52 From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against.53‘Father will be divided against son and son against father; mother against daughter and daughter against mother; and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
Kill all who don’t believe/heaven for people who die for the sky god
“Then a third angel followed them, shouting, “Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand 10 must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb. 11 The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.” 12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!” (Revelation 14:9-13)
Die for him from war and not peace
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:34-39)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘you shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 “If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 “If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell. (Matthew 5:27-29)
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away an withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. (John 15:5-6)
Judgmentally bitch and moan at non believers
“Then Jesus began to denounce the towns where he had done so many of his miracles, because they hadn’t repented of their sins and turned to God. 21 “What sorrow awaits you, Korazin and Bethsaida! For if the miracles I did in you had been done in wicked Tyre and Sidon, their people would have repented of their sins long ago, clothing themselves in burlap and throwing ashes on their heads to show their remorse. 22 I tell you, Tyre and Sidon will be better off on judgment day than you. 23 “And you people of Capernaum, will you be honored in heaven? No, you will go down to the place of the dead. For if the miracles I did for you had been done in wicked Sodom, it would still be here today. 24 I tell you, even Sodom will be better off on judgment day than you.” ~jesus (Matthew 11:20-24)
If you’re a Christian, you can do no wrong-doing
Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. (Romans 8:33)
Leaders of god? Go ahead, judge away!
“The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment.” (1 Corinthians 2:15)
Cry-baby jesus hates all green life
“Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14 Then he said to the tree, ’May no one ever eat fruit from you again.’ And his disciples heard him say it.” (Mark 11:13-14)
Racism is okay as long as it’s in the bible
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: ‘Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.’ (Matthew 10:5-6)
Jesus: “I didn’t come down here to free slaves, screw them!”
“That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” (Luke 12:47-48)
Hate the world
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:15-17)
Irrational jesus is irrational
“If you do something wrong with your eye or hand, cut/pluck it off.” (Matthew 5:29-30).
“Marrying a divorced woman is adultery.” (Matthew 5:32)
“Don’t plan for the future.” (Matthew 6:34)
“Don’t save money.” (Matthew 6:19-20)
“Don’t become wealthy.” (Mark 10:21-25)
“Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.” (Luke 12:33)
“Don’t work to obtain food.” (John 6:27)
“Don’t have sexual urges.” (Matthew 5:28)
“Make people want to persecute you.” (Matthew 5:11)
“If someone steals from you, don’t try to get it back.” (Luke 6:30)
“If someone hits you, invite them to do it again.” (Matthew 5:39)
“If you lose a lawsuit, give more than the judgment.” (Matthew 5:40)
“If someone forces you to walk a mile, walk two miles.” (Matthew 5:41)
“If anyone asks you for anything, give it to them without question.” (Matthew 5:42)
You’re a fool regardless
“Whoever calls somebody a “fool” shall be in danger of hell fire.” (Matthew 5:22),
& Yet jesus called people fools himself
“You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold?” (Matthew 23:17)
God is going to hell as well:
“But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee.” In other words, Jesus says that he who says “thou fool” shall be in danger of hell fire, and then God says “Thou fool”. So, God is in danger of hell fire!” (Luke 12:20)
Steal our free-will? What free-will? You’re considered a sinner for just about every. little. thing.
‘‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.” (Romans 14:11)
“By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear.” (Isaiah 45:23)
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” (Philippians 2:10)
It has been said that Hell is not a place you go if you’re not a Christian; it’s what happens when you fail your life’s greatest ambitions. I have always enjoyed this explanation of hell. Not because it’s different than the traditional depictions of hell. I think of the traditional hell with fire and brimstone being flung everywhere and flames surrounding you, with silhouetted demons mocking you at every turn. For some people like myself, I can imagine getting used to an eternity of annoying demons and balls of fire falling from the sky. At least I would never need to put on a shirt again. No, the traditional description of hell isn’t all that hellish if you ask me. However, I can imagine much deeper darker sets of anguish and torment. I am sure everyone can. Or at least people who have a modern understanding of the Universe and how cosmologically small we all are.
