Black People Are Still Being Hung From Trees and They Still Believe in Jesus

Slavery was wrong, it was bad. Black people wanted no parts of it. They got out of that. They then wanted equal rights and to not be treated like shit. So why in the blue fuck would they want all of that, but still want to believe in Jesus? I’ll never know.

I Didn’t Think I Would Need to Make a Blog Post About This…

When something bad happens to someone – when it comes to ‘Black Atheists’ on Facebook I’m immediately blamed. Why? Because people think this group: facebook.com/groups/blackatheists belongs to me. It doesn’t. Instead of actually putting forth the five-seconds it would have taken to find out who the owner of the group was, people immediately come to me. I’ve gotten hate-mail and death threats due to what goes on over at that group. They complain to me about how the page is full of racists and kick anyone out that isn’t black or harass the people who aren’t black in to leaving. That’s tragic and I’m sorry that it happened, but it has NOTHING to do with me! I had JUST LEFT that page not too long ago because I disagreed with a lot of what was going on there. I barely posted or even participated in any of the posts in that group. Why would I?

If you haven’t noticed, the style of that group is totally different from my blog(s), page, and group. I use the same font in all of my cover page pictures and I introduce myself every 3-4 months on both the group and the page. I even have it in the description on both the group and the page that I’m not affiliated with that group. I’ve gone out of my way to make that known and yet…I’m doomed to having to make this:

They Have All The Answers to All The Wrong Questions

God: Thousands died in that typhoon, but you know who’s okay?

God: Thousands died in that typhoon, but you know who’s okay?

The standards of what qualifies as a miracle have really gone down. Now if that statue came to life, put its carpenter skills to work by building some new houses, and magically fed everyone with a few fish, I’d be really impressed.

Ask the statue for some relief funds and see if he’ll answer.

I would rather be awed by nature’s destructive potential, or stand at the base of some bedraggled, lone-surviving coconut palm and be in awe as well of nature’s resilience.

Maybe we should build houses in the shape of Jesus so it will always be left standing.

If you really believe this is real, then you believe god cared more about a statue of himself than all of those people’s lives. Good job!

So many people sending prayers and messages of “god bless” to the people in the Philippines, but surely if you subscribe to their logic and beliefs it was God who sent the storm to mash up their country in the first place. this is cognitive dissonance, when one person holds conflicting beliefs or opinions. Ex: God is good, yet an act of God kills thousands.
