Bigotry Map

I Want to be Added to AFA’s “Map”!

American Family Association created a map recently. It still needs work and a lot of organizations are missing from that map and I want to be added to it. I don’t have an organization per se, but hell, since they want to target non-hate groups and label them “Anti-Christian” then why the hell not? According to the map, we’re considered bigots and should have a map that targets us. Is this similar to smearing blood on doors, and if so, should I get ready to be massacred?

The web site www.afa.net/bigotrymap includes an interactive map that identifies groups whose actions are deeply intolerant of the Christian religion. Their actions, for example, have endorsed efforts to silence Christians and to remove all public displays of Christian heritage and faith in America.

Do they realize that all this did was help me find like-minded people in my area? Thanks, AFA! I didn’t realize there were so many organizations in my neck of the woods [Cleveland, Ohio] before this map came along.

I’m trying to figure out if this map was spawned because an “atheist killed a Muslim couple over a parking spot”. I respect your “hustle” AFA, but that’s low-bar, even for Christians. FYI:  Just because someone doesn’t share your beliefs does not make that person anti-Christian and certainly does not make that person a bigot. We are talking about Christians, though; the ones who feel they are the most persecuted of the persecuted. Don’t mention the crusades, all hell will break loose, then.

See? Even when it's not about them they make it about them. This was on their blog pertaining to ISIS.

To Atheists & Christians: My Black Atheists Page is NOT Racist! | This Shit is Getting Tired!

It’s fucked up that I have to tell this shit to atheists; I expect that level of bullshit from the religious. 

I’m racist if there are people who aren’t black on my atheist page. I’m racist because the page is called ‘Black Atheists’. I’m not about equality and I’m segregating atheism for having ‘black’ in the title. I can’t win for losing. 

I get bombarded by mostly other atheists: “Would you be mad if I made a ‘White Atheist’ page?” 

It gets more ridiculous than that: “There’s a NAACP, a BET and other shit for black people, where are the white equivalents?” Are you fucking kidding me? Why would a non-marginalized majority need an equivalency? What about that is so hard for you to fucking grasp?!

Let me put it bluntly: Some of you white people need to get over this ridiculous false equivalency in your goddamned heads. You don’t need white pride or other white groups. You don’t need your own channels. You’re already everywhere as it is! Hollywood disregards race and slap white people in “historically correct” movies when there should be brown or black people. Get the-fuck out of here! Telling me that a black atheist page can only exist provided a white atheist page exists is like saying feminism can only exist provided male rights advocacy exists.

I’m not apologizing for putting ‘black’ in my title. Why? Because that’s what I am! I’m Black! I’m a woman! I’m atheist! I’m the only atheist in my family. This rings true for some black families. There are black people right now that are atheists who cannot tell their family that they are atheist. They would lose everyone! WE ARE THE MINORITY WITHIN A MINORITY! Why do I have to spell this shit out to people; especially atheists? 

This blog, my Tumblr, my Facebook page, my Twitter brings another perspective to people’s lives and a deeper understanding of the joint struggle against religious oppression. Someone on the outside wouldn’t understand black culture unless there was someone there to tell them and show them. Black atheists have cultural challenges that white Atheists know absolutely nothing about. Furthermore, after the gross and racist behavior of prominent white atheists earlier in the year, there truly needs to be alternative voices.

I think black atheists like me and other minority atheists have a harder time getting out of religion and coming out as secular, atheist, or agnostic because our culture has been drowned in the religion of our past oppressors who used religion to enslave, kill, and oppress us. The awareness of those facts is not in education nor brought to light, so that blacks, and any other person of color really that had their original belief system replaced by European Christianity. We have hard time coming out as atheist because our family is so intertwined in their faith that anyone who doesn’t believe as they do gets disowned and or killed. It happened to a cousin of mine in the South.

People look at those pages and think I’m categorizing atheism separately because I’m angry, or racist. That’s the furthest from the truth. What atheists and Christians alike fail to realize is that black atheist men & women who have escaped the religion that was forced upon their ancestors – and before that – by their slave masters are the minority of the minority. I need to categorize separately, because religion is in my culture and slave heritage and other black people need to know there are others like them. The demographic of black atheists seems to be smaller than atheists of other races because black people seem to be more influenced by religion. Having a group called ‘Black Atheists’ is more like saying “we do exist.” Rather than saying “we are trying to separate ourselves from atheists of other races”.

In a free-thinking community, you’d think racism would be the least of anyone’s worries. We are all fighting the grand evil, indoctrination for separation from religion. Again, I expected this kind of nonsense more from the religious, but that’s not the case for my page. 

There’s black atheist groups and pages on Facebook and other forms of social media that ARE pro-black and don’t allow anyone of a different race to join. Those pages and groups are toxic and I steer clear from them. That’s not me, that’s not what I represent.

On a more serious note, this is what I make of the situation:

 I think the problem why there is such thing as ‘Black Entertainment’ but not ‘White Entertainment’ is because the blacks of America have culturally integrated with each other that they form a single Afro-American identity and label them as ‘black’. The whites still keep some of their ancestral identity, which is why they sometimes label themselves as ‘Italian American’, ‘Irish American’, ‘German American’ and etc. This is why you have Italian, Irish, German club as opposed to White clubs.  This is not an issue of ethnic minority; it is an issue of ethnic identity. The Asians are a smaller minority but they still label themselves as “of Chinese descent”, “of Japanese descent”, or “of Filipino descent”.

Recent immigrants from Africa do align themselves with their more regional identity. For example, there is a large Somali population in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area who are different from those of Eritrean and Ethiopian descent. There is a vast amount of diversity in the people on the continent of Africa, and even within those three regions, which are all in the same general area.

African-Americans – or as some might argue should be termed “Black Americans” – are a unique American group without cultural ties directly back to Africa because it was systematically erased from each person due to the “peculiar” institution of chattel slavery.

When your children are taken from you, when your own relationships aren’t given the least respect, you can’t learn to record your own history, you’re often ripped away from everyone you know and sent to another environment, not allowed to speak anything but you’re captor’s language, are indoctrinated into their religion, and forced to work past exhaustion, then sometimes beaten for sport, it isn’t possible to pass on your own cultural traditions or even identity.

After a few hundred years of this, when our country finally stopped allowing this horror, its victims were completely wiped of any possible cultural memories that originated from Africa. People’s main concerns were to find their immediate families and to live free. Then Reconstruction was rejected by the scum of the earth, I mean former slave owners, and sharecropping and Jim Crow started, but that’s another lesson.

So, long story short, yes, white people and Asians have their own ethnic identities, and while recent African immigrants have that too, most black people in America don’t because the American institution of chattel slavery systematically removed it from their ancestors.

It’s not just because they were wiped out of any cultural identity by their oppressors. By the time many West Africans were sold to European slavers and were brought to the Americas, the political system in West Africa was nowhere near present day West Africa; there weren’t any rigid political boundaries; it consisted of smaller warring kingdoms. There were no identities such as Nigerian or Ghanaian; they only exist after the era of independence in Africa. The opposite is true for European identities such as English, Irish, German and etc.; they have existed for hundreds of years. Moreover, identities such as Chinese, Korean, and Japanese have existed for nearly a thousand, as opposed to contemporary African identities. So, by the time slavery stopped, Africa has changed a lot without the knowledge of the Africans who were brought to the Americas, bewildering them to which contemporary identity they belong to. This is why a diverse range of African identities exist in Europe but not as much in the Americas, because again, they were recent African immigrants.

More information on American Demographics.

So until everyone is free and equal, until justice works for all, until there is no class division that survives by the crushing of the others who are not in the super wealthy class, until privileges based on race [see white privilege] become a thing our descendants look back on in horror and disgust, until every man woman and child is treated with the same honor and dignity as the next, and until every race is given a chance to thrive in a world where we all are truly equal, we cannot ignore color, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, or any other distinctions and identifiers because we still live in a world of racism, classism, discrimination, and inequality.

So shut the fuck up with the “you have to look past the color!”, shut the fuck up with “you only see color!”, shut all the way the fuck up with “you’re racist and you’re making this all about color!”

If you’re going to say that don’t say anything at all. Simply, shut the fuck up.

If you’re one of those people who had the pleasure of receiving this as a rebuttal to your tired ass argument – suffice it to say that you actually read it – I hope you learned something. The only person that you’re hurting for continuing to stay willfully ignorant is you.

old testament

Stop it, Christians…the Old Testament is still very valid!

There is no shortage of violence, misogyny, and intolerance in the Old Testament of the Bible. With passages that tell us to kill homosexuals (Leviticus 20:13), kill witches (Exodus 20:10), kill non-believers (Deuteronomy 13:13-18), justify slavery (Leviticus 22:11), killing women who are not virgin on their wedding night (Deuteronomy 22:20-21), kill people for working on the Sabbath (Exodus 31:12-15), and countless more commandments by god for his followers to act with extreme cruelty and carry out bloodshed that would make a psychopathic killer seem like an angel, the bible is by far the most disgusting book ever written.

In response to this many Christians use their favourite argument, which is, “that doesn’t count, it’s just the Old Testament!”. Let us look at quickly just how stupid this most widely used Christian argument is:

First of all, nowhere in the New Testament are we told that the Old Testament laws do not apply. In fact, if anything, the opposite of that is true, as Jesus says in Matthew 5:17-19Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Clearly most Christians don’t even read the bible; they just spew out whatever someone else told them. More importantly, Christians claim that both the Old and New Testament were inspired by of god! It’s the same freaking god! Use your brain for a second? In the New Testament, in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 it says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Also important to note is that Christians view Jesus as God, which means Jesus was the God of the Old Testament, who commanded all those violent, sexist, and disgusting laws. And we also read in the bible that God does not change (Malachi 3:6 and James 1:17). But interestingly enough, Jesus in the New Testament is still very violent; as he promises to kill and defeat all non-believers on the day he supposedly comes back to earth.

Now this is where it gets really interesting, Christians not only quote and use the Old Testament on a regular basis, but also relate the stories and supposed prophecies of the Old Testament to Jesus, and see him as a messiah that came to fulfil the Old Testament prophecies. I love how some will even go as far as saying, oh those laws are for the Jews only? Huh?? So are you saying that religious Jews, who only believe in the Old Testament of the Bible, and not the new, are the most violent people on earth? No, because all religions are violent, evil, outdated, and destroy your mind.

It is so hypocritical and stupid for Christians to conveniently say that the Old Testament does not apply. Interesting enough, they pick the scriptures they like in the Old Testament and use it all the time, but then ignore the repulsive ones, and there are MANY! For instance, Christians will take the Ten commandments from the Old Testament book of Exodus and want to have it written all over public areas, but then they simply ignore the fact that Exodus also says “kill those who work on the Sabbath” (Exodus 31:12-15). Hypocrisy and stupidity at its finest! Religion damages your mind. Your brain is so powerful, stop allowing religion to hold it back from achieving its full potential!

How Christians hide behind the “Oh that’s just the Old Testament” argument is mind-boggling!

Submission from one of my readers:

Hebrews 1:12
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Hebrews 13:7-9
Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

I Samuel 15:29
He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.

Psalm 102:27
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Matthew 5:17
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words never pass away.

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. -Roswatheists

My Response to Mommyish’s ’10 Things Not To Say To An Atheist Mom’

Had to post this here as well so my other readers and followers could see it. They’ve actually been waiting on this post. Well wait no more.

It’s long overdue and I’ve been holding back from doing this blog, but I’m bored so…

Here’s the link: Mommyish.

I was subscribed to this website’s blog for a while. I’ve always had this feeling that some of the writers post things out of their realm of comfort; especially about  atheism. A lot of their posts about atheism are labeled wrong. It’s like they have an agnostic write those posts, or someone that’s not an atheist at all. Anyway, moving on.

 10. “What if you’re wrong?”

That isn’t something you need to worry about. I’m not trying to force my lack of beliefs on you, and if I’m wrong, so be it. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. But I live a good life, and I would hope that a just and loving deity would be okay with that. -Mommyish

10 Things People Need to Be Protesting Instead of Adult Swim’s Black Jesus

This blog post is mostly in response to this.

I’ve noticed something recently. What I noticed was the lack of boycotts and protests from people about important things. There’s this huge uproar about a new show on Adult Swim called Black Jesus. Everything was quiet – considering – in the world of religion until Black Jesus aired yesterday. What’s sad is people don’t need the government to distract us from important things, all it takes is a show on Adult Swim called Black Jesus to do that.

Well here’s a list of things people [especially black people] should be pissy about!

Number 1: Churches

Need I say more? They’re tax exempt. Why do you think you see so many of them on one street in your neighborhood? A hole in the wall can become a church and all you need to do is buy the building and call it one. Then you sit and ask yourself how the pastor coming to church with a new car to match his new suit every day.

Number 2: Eric Garner

A lot of you may not have even heard of the guy and you’re probably asking yourself who the hell that is. It’s the guy that was killed when he was put in a chokehold. They guy was asthmatic and he died because of the NYPD. What makes this more terrifying is that this isn’t the first occurrence.

Number 3: Hollywood

White actors acting in ‘based on actual events’ when they should have been black or another race. Prime example: Exodus. Why are all the Egyptians white? If you’re going to boycott something, boycott movies like that. Boycott Hollywood. Boycott how the way Hollywood think Black people are. Don’t stop there, write up a petition for BET. Blacks and other races have been mocked, ridiculed and slandered all for a buck but you’re okay with that. All I’m saying is, Christian Bale is playing Moses.

Number 4: Infestation of Illiteracy

Guess how many students are actually getting a top quality education in their schools? How many are graduating? How many are even making it to school without seeing a crack-pipe or a hooker on the corner? How many are getting shot and killed by stray bullets? Where is the guidance, the education? It’s supposed to start at home. Why aren’t you boycotting your goddamned selves?

Number 5: Gun Law Policies

I see a lof of you crying that things are never going to change and people are just going to do what they want. Well, no one ever said things will get accomplished or pushed in the right direction while sitting on your ass. Why, oh why isn’t all these people complaining about gun law policies aren’t coming together and doing something about the gun law policies? You want change? You have to be willing to make that change!

Number 6: Low-income Housing & Other Programs

I’m sure the mass majority of America is on some kind of low-income support; especially housing. I’m sure it’s been made aware that their funding has been cut back exponentially; making it harder for those who have it and those who are trying to get it. They’re cutting back on SSI, cutting back on SNAP benefits, cutting back on so many programs that people are using to survive. For what? For fucking what? I’ll let you figure that one out for yourself.

Number 7: Employment

Believe it or not, it’s still the recession; it never left. Employment rates are still on the decline. I would say it’s more on the decline in the black community but I’m living some place where there’s nothing but factories hiring and the majority in this community that’s looking for work are blacks. Guess what they do when they get hired? Work for only 2-hours and go home. It’s on the decline because black people don’t want to work. Again, you should be boycotting your goddamned selves.

Number 8: Fewer and Fewer Black Owned Businesses

This all again dwindles down to being your own worst enemy. Again, there needs to be a stern wake up call in the black community. A boycott needs to be had on the black community.

Number 9: Yourselves!

Guess I’ll just make it clear just in case this gets skimmed through. Boycott yourselves. Boycott your lack of drive, your laziness, your nitpicking, cherry-picking, judgmental ways. Boycott your excuses. Boycott how you blame the white man for everything. Boycott yourselves.

Number 10: The Government

This shouldn’t have to be said. It shouldn’t. I shouldn’t have to explain either. Just a quick Google search can give you a clear idea why there are more important things to petition and boycott than some silly ass show on Adult Swim!

So let’s review:

Where were these protests and petitions when the show was on Youtube?  It was a web show for years. Where is all this disdain coming from now? Four years and an announcement of the show coming to television and now you’re upset?

I also don’t recall anyone boycotting ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and Mel Gibson is white as they come. So, what’s the problem here? Where is the boycott for THAT SHIT? Seth McFarlane, Matt Stone and Trey Parker bash god, Jesus  hindu religions, and everyone else under the sun. but Aaron Mcgruder does the same thing. now you black christians and the like want to cry foul?!

How come no one is boycotting Preachers of LA? What about that?

There’s all these new movies – ‘Son of God’ for example portraying god as blonde-haired and blue-eyed and no one is up in arms about that. Not a single one of you in the religious black community is up in arms about any of that shit. Soon as a black man is portrayed as Jesus, you’re ready to call the dogs. What kind of shit is that?

Why didn’t anyone boycott ‘The Boondocks‘? You’re worried about the portrayal of Jesus, what about the portrayal of black people? Because everything Aaron McGruder wrote for that show was true and you could relate. What exactly – if you actually watch the show – is different than that and The Boondocks? Oh, the Jesus part. Well, why wasn’t Moral Orel boycotted then?

Christians, you sure do know when to hold em’ and when to fold em’.

Just a note: Jesus – according to the bible – walked among hookers, house wives, criminals, scandalous men, warriors, and people who loved and hated god.  Also, Jesus wasn’t white nor black. Where’s the petition for that?

Your God Hates Everyone So Stop With The Lies

Want to know how I know? I’ll tell you. It’s quite simple actually. Just talk to your neighborhood Christian and they’ll tell you as plain as day that ‘God loves everyone!’ That’s the biggest lie ever told. It’s to be expected seeing as Pew Research has stated that Christians know the least about their religion; their god; their bible.

Let’s list the things that your god see as abominations, or are detestable; things [he] hates and abhors and see if he’s truly all about love. This list is going to be long.

“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” -Leviticus 18:22

“And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.” -Leviticus 20:23

 For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.” -Isaiah 61:8

You’d think this god would know what offerings were going to be presented to [him] before receiving them.

“And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.” -Leviticus 18:23

Which is funny because bestality is legal in these places:

Alabama; Arkansas; Washington, D.C.; Guam; Hawaii; Kentucky; Montana; Nevada; New Hampshire; New Jersey; New Mexico; Ohio; Texas; Vermont; Virginia; West Virginia; and Wyoming (source)

 “And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.” -Leviticus 26:30

This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You saw the great disaster I brought on Jerusalem and on all the towns of Judah. Today they lie deserted and in ruins because of the evil they have done. They aroused my anger by burning incense to and worshiping other gods that neither they nor you nor your ancestors ever knew. Again and again I sent my servants the prophets, who said, ‘Do not do this detestable thing that I hate!” -Jeremiah 44:2-4

Talk about having a tantrum. Is this a god or a toddler?

“…do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the Lord.” -Zechariah 8:17

Dude, you cursed a fig tree…then proceeded to have a table flipping contest with yourself, but not before driving everyone out of Jerusalem that were selling doves. You then left and your disciples saw that poor fig tree all withered up and what did you say? “Faith in god.” So, what did you mean, faith in yourself? You’re you! Of course you’d have faith in “god”. A fig tree lost its life because you was hungry and the tree was not in the season to grow fruit. Guess it wasn’t the season for reason, either.  -Mark 11:12-25

 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.” -Deuteronomy 7:25

 “And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.” -Deuteronomy 32:19

“You ask, “Why?” It is because the Lord is the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.15 Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring.So be on your guard,and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.16 “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,’ says the Lord Almighty.

So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful.” -Malachi 2:14-16

“Do not sacrifice to the Lord your God an ox or a sheep that has any defect or flaw in it, for that would be detestable to him.” -Deuteronomy 17:1

“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.” -Psalm 5:5

“…and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have forbidden, and it is told you and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently, and if it is true and certain that such an abomination has been done in Israel,” -Deuteronomy 17:3-4

“Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.” -Psalm 5:6

The deeds and doctrines of Nicolaitanes. -Revelations 2:6-15

“There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering,anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord.” -Deuteronomy 18:10-12

“For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.” -Psalm 10:3

“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.” -Deuteronomy 22:5 

“You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the Lord your God to pay any vow, because the Lord your God detests them both.” -Deuteronomy 23:18

“There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.” -Psalm 53:5

 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.” -Deuteronomy 24:4

“As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.” -Psalm 73:20

Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light.14 Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small.15 You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. 16 For the Lord your God detests anyone who does these things, anyone who deals dishonestly.” -Deuteronomy 25:13-16

Let me just chime in and say that your god is not only a liar, but petty as hell!

“When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:” -Psalm 78:59

“Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. He gave them into the hands of the nations, and their foes ruled over them.” -Psalm 106:40-41

The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.” -Psalm 11:5

What a hypocrite.

“For the perverse are an abomination [extremely disgusting and detestable] to the Lord; but His confidential communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him).” -Proverbs 3:32

“The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.” -Proverbs 22:14

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” -Proverbs 6:16-19

If this is really the word of god then [he’s] not looking too stable right now. It’s almost outright frightening how hypocritical this god is. No wonder [his] sheep is such a splitting of [him]. It’s all making sense now. God apparently killed all those first-born babies of egypt with no hands. “Look ma, no hands!”

Then it continues:

“…a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. -Proverbs 6:18-19

“And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest.” -Lamentations 2:6

The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.” -Proverbs 12:22

I don’t know about you, but this is getting repetitive…redundant even.

“All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.” -Hosea 9:15

“The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked but the prayer of the upright pleases him. The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness.10 Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.” -Proverbs 15:8-10

“Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.” -Zechariah 11:8

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, but the words of the pure are pleasant.” -Proverbs 15:26

God sure had a thing with the “wicked”.

“And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.” -Malachi 1:3

“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.” -Proverbs 16:5

 “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” -Romans 9:13

Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent—the Lord detests them both.” -Proverbs 17:15

There is no winning with this guy…

Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations—I cannot bear your worthless assemblies. Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals. I hate with all my being. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.” -Isaiah 1:13-14

Prima…donna.

Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the Lord your God, 22 and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the Lord your God hates.” -Deuteronomy -16:21-22

I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me. 22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them. 23 Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. 24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” -Amos 5:21-24

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send
peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his
father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” -Matthew 10:34-35

You can go here to have your fill.

From these scriptures alone, your god hates everyone. So stop passive aggressively telling me that your god loves me and loves “all god’s creatures” when that is clearly not the case. Your god doesn’t even like you. Your god doesn’t hate the sin but loves the sinner. Otherwise, there would’t be over 650 scriptures dedicated to getting rid of said sinners in a lake of fire. So stop it.

Thanks in advance.

Your neighborhood atheist.

An unintelligent atheist.

An Open Letter To: ‘Stoptryna Stylesbymia Lookmeup’

A redundant and ridiculous name, right? Don’t feel too flattered sweetie…Lee considers you a non factor… which is why I’m doing this blog post.

First off…how dare you? How dare you sit on your pedestal off in a corner some where and judge someone? Who are you? Where did you come from? Out of all the posts Lee has made, this is THE ONLY ONE you’ve posted on. What provoked such hatred for someone who is getting shit accomplished? What did Lee do to your coupon clipping ass? What gives you so much space and opportunity to talk about someone else?

An unintelligent atheist.

An unintelligent atheist.

Let me just say…for the record…that your comment holds no merit. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Leila… a long time friend of Lee’s. I was there for her when she was struggling with her atheism and her abusive family all throughout grade school. She’s a very strong person and your comment holds no merit. Especially since you post things like this.

Your ignorance speaks volumes. You have some personal issues you need to take care of. Take a step back and look at yourself. Moving to Texas isn’t going to solve your dilemma. There’s black people there and I’m sure they’re not going to like you…and vise versa…either. You weren’t put on this earth to be liked, but you sure as hell isn’t helping yourself.

Secondly, for the record, atheism shouldn’t be the basis that one would …or should be used to measure ones intelligence. Intelligence and atheism doesn’t always compute. Atheism is the lack in a deity…no where in there does it states that atheists are immediately smart. You don’t immediately inherit a high-level IQ because you don’t have a deity to talk to.

The presumption that Lee …my good friend…is lacking in the intelligence department because her lifestyle and goals doesn’t make sense to you dumbfounds me still and it’s been a couple of days.

Yes, Lee is an atheist, she’s VERY smart…a whole lot smarter than you. Want to know why? She wouldn’t ask or even think of the questions you asked her. She would have used her brain. The one you seem to take for granted. Lee is very well informed and I assure you…. she outweighed her options.

Seeing as she A. Had a job and saved up her money till it ran out …recently… still has a roof over her head though. B. Fixed her living situation and is currently moving in to her new apartment. C. Is getting married in November and then having said child in December and D. Has a caring and supportive fiancé that loves her dearly …will rather he be without than her…and have jobs lined up as soon as they’re settled.

Yes, Lee is pregnant and very much loved by everyone around her. She doesn’t need your approval or your hatred towards her life decisions. You took the little information you did have and added your twist on her life situation without even asking her. She was homeless for a short while but that got fixed way before she got pregnant. Yes she’s starting over from scratch. Did it ever occur to you that she has her shit together? That she has resources? That she knows where to go and what to do to get things for her new apartment? No? I didn’t think so.

I’m  glad she removed you from her friend’s list, but she should have waited. So many people had so much to say to you:

strength

Notice how YOU’RE the only one who felt that way? Even if others did have  a problem with her life choices, guess what? They would have sent her message.

Lee’s atheism has nothing to do with her intelligence. To start off a conversation that way and then continue to belittle her because you’re unhappy just makes you unhappy.

A #1 problem in the black community is too many people like you kicking people while they’re getting up, which is worse than when they’re down. Get your shit together, Mia.
