I’m pretty sure murder is in a Bible follower’s top ten list of things to never do. What is that called? Ten commandments? The thing that most Christians say are the main 10 rules to be followed?
Are you saying killing people is fine? Out of context, I sure hope not.
But I will agree about the never relevant in history thing! Many Christians throughout history as well as in the bible have happily murdered people in god’s name even without God’s permission. The hypocrisy is comical but sad in my opinion.
"Bible doesn’t say anything about killing atheists"
Okay you got me, it doesn’t specifically say people who believe in no gods should be killed. but it does say that anyone (even your mother, spouse, or best friend) who doesn’t worship the god of the bible should be killed and not reasoned with, and I feel like that’s damn close enough.
Deuteronomy, 13:6-10, check it out for yourself.
"Atheists yell at people and remove symbols of Christmas even though nobody BUT the atheists have a problem with it"
I’m pretty sure people of faith who don’t celebrate Christmas have a problem with it to. This may be my own findings, but some of the Muslim and Jewish people I’ve talked to have said they REALLY don’t like the generalization that everyone in this country (I assume you’re in the US?) celebrates Christmas; they may not yell at someone for it, but you may not have realized that many people are capable of controlling their emotions when someone says something they don’t like.
Speaking of: yell at? Hardly. Not everyone is conformational, and it is possible to dislike something without blowing up on someone.
"You generalize Christians"
Nice try, but I choose my words carefully on tumblr. I type “some Christians," not "Christians.” That “some” is important, because leaving it out is generalizing an entire group, which I understand the importance of not doing though I can clearly see that you do not.
You don’t care so much that you had to leave 6+ asks in my inbox about it :9
Which by the way I’m not going to answer all of them since my response to most of them was covered already by my first response.
I’ve never seen it personally, but I’ve seen videos of customers getting mad about this topic as well as numerous posts.
Also, stuff like this exists:
“You can’t say the same about atheist posts bashing Christians online; most of what atheists do on the net is mock anyone with religion. And yeah, there are people who call themselves Christian (Westboro Baptist Church), but for you atheists to claim that all Christians are like that is just as offensive and incorrect as saying that all vegans are dumb or unnatural or whatever else you were whining about. Treat other people the way you’d want to be treated or else you look like a hypocrite. “
Veganism is not comparable to atheism or Christianity, but for the sake of argument, I’ll bite.
Vegans aren’t trying to push laws to take the teaching of where meat comes from out of school like some Christians are trying to block evolution. Vegans aren’t rallying to make treating people who got food poisoning from meat illegal like some Christians are trying to ban abortion for women* who need it. Vegans don’t yell at grocery store cashiers when told “Happy Holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas.”
Not only were your asks generalizing and comparing two things that aren’t comparable, but are you serious?
Some religious peoples’ lifebook (the thing these people claim is 100% truth and must be obeyed) states atheists should be killed and you’re asking atheist to be calm in the matter? What are atheists supposed to think about some Christians when they say stuff like this?
But this is beside the point. I’m generally speaking a pretty nice guy, and I don’t hate on people out of no where, despite you generalizing that I do (“You atheists,” “You can’t say the same about atheist posts”)
But this is all irrelevant.
Faith is not reality. You’re welcome to have faith, but if you’re going to try and force people to think like you do by using hatred to in attempt to block reality, whether it’s about my rejection of factory farming or my rejection of Christianity, I feel like I AT LEAST have grounds to poke fun at you and your individuality.
Don’t like it? Tell me why.
“…Also I’m glad other people see the stupidity in anti-choicers crying over the unborn - who, in a proper procedure, would never have time to experience anything resembling suffering, fear or confusion - while feeling no concern whatsoever for animals. A chicken that JUST HATCHED experiences more than any fetus every aborted in the history of Earth. Of course, these are the same people who defend war and guns and all manner of bigotry anyway.”
I’m all about being as vegan as you can, but when someone says that they’re 100% animal death/cruelty free… well, at that point it becomes an argument about the language they’re using, but I really feel that they’re REALLY generalizing.
I love bugs. When I was first going vegan, I still ate bug products because I felt they were different from their mammalian, avian, and fishy production animal counter parts. But now I can’t bring myself to do it- I love bugs too much. Whenever I find an ant or a box elder bug in my apartment, I always bring ‘em outside muttering “this guy has just as much of a right to continue living as I do...”
I don’t expect other vegans to uphold this ideal, but if you’re gunna talk about animal rights, well there you go.
Also, am I the only one bothered by people using the word “murder” when talking about killing animals? I feel like that’s, you know, a human word for unjustified killing. I don’t feel like that word can be applied to animals or unborn. Just sayin.
Oh, the box the man in that image is carrying probably isn’t a biohazard bin. By law, bio bins have to be brightly colored and clearly labeled. Bins that hold anything other than gloves and bandages must be made out of thick plastic.
I originally typed out everything that is actually in biohazard bin in reply to that post, but I deleted it because that should be obvious to anyone who has ever stepped inside an medical facility. But let’s do it again anyway!
Inside biohazard bins: used needles, bandages, surgical instruments, microsope slides, certain machine parts from lab equipment, chemicals that are unsafe for the drain, cultures, and pretty much ANYTHING that’s ever touched any secretion made by the human body (urine, blood, tissue, etc).
Throwing that stuff in the garbage is illegal for a reason, mainly because:
a). It’s dangerous to just be tossed in a dumpster. Wanna get jabbed by a used needle while you take out the trash? I sure don’t.
and b). Any of the stuff I just listed could carry diseases or cause serious illnesses if contacted, especially human parts. Humans are really good at spreading disease, shocking I know.
Why would human parts being in biohazard ever be look at like a negative thing? lol
And you back up your statement of me being a stereotype with… what reasoning now?
Because you say so?
Good argument, A+
Tumblr what the hell are you doing?
Why and the hey was that anon ask I answered coming up without my commentary or the ask bauble?
OH WELL. Here’s my screenshot of my answer, anon.
