    gag all you want james, it is true though πŸ™

    I think we’re laughing or gagging for the same reasons, Lord Nazh, in that we agree.

    When taking consistency into consideration though, one must also take into consideration factual proof which might not be seen or published via the internet.

    I certainly understand where this might be funny in regards to someone flushing God down the toilet when they spew hatred most of the time.

    However, not all art flushes God down the toilet. Perhaps the picture on the right should read “the free love theory” instead?

    Well, at least I think it should.

    Perhaps.

    Put ‘free love theory’ on the koran one and see if you feel the same way…

    especially after the fatwa. the amount of ‘hatred’ they spew, one is ALWAYS considered hate speech and the other is simply art, expression or rebellion.

    Christians don’t murder people that flush the bible, hence the ‘tolerance’

    We will be the architects of our own demise. This is what being liberal brings as its reward. The weak perish.

    It cracks me up whenever I hear or read arty types talk about pushing the boundaries, breaking the taboos, freedom of expression and all that guff. They want to be edgy, ground-breaking and new, yet underneath they cannot hide that at the end of the day they want to get home for their tea in one piece.

    The cartoon sums it up for me.

    On completion of a recent hustings held, as they invariably are, in a church hall, I asked the presiding vicar what chance the religion that instructs it’s followers to “turn the other cheek” had against a religion that demands that non believers be put to death, he said that it was immaterial as Christianity is not in a battle with Islam.
    The church of England has been trashed beyond redemption, there is news of a whole CofE congregation (I forget where) converting to Catholicism because of the state of affairs concerning women and gay Bishops.
    English churches were being converted into pubs as far back as the mid sixties, they were also being converted into private dwellings, now, I hear that churches are being converted into Mosques?
    Who is in the driving seat behind this and the trashing of other English institutions?
    Our own Government?
    MI5/MI6?
    The police force?
    Common Purpose?
    The Mafia (now referred to as “International organised crime”)
    The Bilderbergers?
    Aliens?
    If we can’t identify the enemy we can’t fight back.

    Brilliant Analogy Lord Nazh. It certainly does make one think.

    I suppose what I should have also added is the fact one also throws away God by lacking morals. Words are not the only thing which matters.

    So do actions.

    I would hope changing this world, to make it a better place to live in, might one day mean lifting people up and encouraging them to change instead of the finding happiness In destroying one another.

    But what do I know? I’m just the little girl who always dreamed life could one day be fair and might eventually create democracy for everyone.

    You cannot change the world; that is something you tell children to make them feel better.

    You can control you, how you act and react to things. Be the best you that you can be and don’t hide what you feel when someone trashes your way of life.

    Everyone doesn’t want democracy; most people have a deep-seated need to be ordered around.

    Patrick, for the enemy look to apathy. A thoroughly modern disease.

  12. October 17, 2010 at 19:57

    I suppose part of me will always remain a child then because I have to believe I can change the world because this gives me hope.

    I do agree with controlling how one reacts to things but I am not one who particularly likes being ordered around, nor am I one whose will can easily be broken or it would have been broken already.

    it is far easier to break a person who would sale their soul for money then it is to try to change the mind of someone who would give up everything they own for what they believe in.

    I’m not going to deny my fascination with those who seem to think they can boss me around though.

    Is this a dysfunctional trait of mine or am I merely aroused by the fact someone might be able to tame me one day? I’m honestly undecided on this one.

    Where was I? Oh yes, back to the real world instead of continuing to hog this comment section.

    I do apologize. Can I be excused now? πŸ™‚

    Chris H – Apathy, out of insoucience and procrastination.
    I’ll look up the meanings, if I can be bothered, tomorrow.

    The interesting thing about apathy is, in my experience, that believers and advocates, of anything and everything, almost always use the word to deride those they have not managed to enthuse. Thus a disinclination to turn out on a rainy day to vote in an election that everyone knows can make no difference to the status quo, or a decision that Alton Towers may be more entertaining than the village fΓͺte, or an unwillingness to buy other peoples’ worn out junk, even if it is in pursuit of a good cause, or irritation when yet another plastic bag (and associated paperwork asking for items one still has a use for, ballpoint pen included) that one must recycle, on pain of a fine of one thousand pounds, is put through one’s letterbox, or a suspicion that the ‘fun day’ promised by the carbon footprint swelling, Amazon rain forest depleting, postman crippling, jargon rich / grammar lite ‘below the line’ offer sitting on the floor of one’s expensive porch is probably best ignored are taken as proof of ‘apathy’ rather than a polite ‘no thank you’ and an implied FUCK OFF AND DON’T BOTHER ME AGAIN.

    When people believe that they have something to gain (ie something that benefits them and not opportunistic others at their expense) they’ll shift themselves, and spend their money. There is no such thing as apathy and the word should be expunged from the English lexicon.

    Well, that’s one way of saying NO.

    Mocking the bourgeois = bourgeois
