Atheists, Freethinkers Blasphemy Rights Day

 

Friday is International Blasphemy Rights Day, a day for atheists, freethinkers, and others to celebrate the right to criticize, satirize and reject religious superstition.

 

International Blasphemy Rights Day takes place every September 30th. The purpose of this event is to support free speech and to oppose any resolutions or laws that discourage or inhibit free speech of any kind.

 

Blasphemy Rights Day came about as a result of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy.  On September 30, 2005, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published 12 political cartoons, most of which depicted the Islamic Prophet Muhammad.

 

The cartoons led to Islamic protests across the Muslim world, some of which escalated into violence. Damage included more than 100 reported deaths, the bombing of the Danish embassy in Pakistan, setting fire to the Danish Embassies in Syria, Lebanon and Iran, and the storming of several European buildings.

 
International Blasphemy Rights Day is a time to to protest any attempt to prohibit free speech, and a day to remember that some countries punish their citizens with fines, imprisonment, and even death if found guilty of blasphemy. The following countries criminalize blasphemy:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Jordan, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan.

So bill, you think people shouldn't have freedom of speech? You think people should be hunted down and killed for speaking against your god? This is the "loving religion" you want to push off on people? Once more you show your true colors. This is what you want for America. Sick. And I remind you, April Fool's day belongs to the christians. After all, it is the day people try to make others  believe ridiculous things.

Hi Jennifer,

 

Once again, so that you will not be confused.  What I wrote is:

 

 Hi Vic

 

Thanks for the info.  But, are you sure you have not confused the dates?  I would have sworn the day is APRIL 1ST.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill

 

Now, how did YOU get YOUR mind twisted around other words I did not write?  Are you so eager to prove me wrong -- that you will dig up "so called statements" from me which I did not write -- so that you can find something to deny? 

 

I know that atheists have very little to support their beliefs and lifestyle -- but, my Friend, why not try a wee bit on honesty?   You may be amazed at how good it feels.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill

Bill, I'm sure you know by now that twisting people's words is Jennifer's forte. But I agree with you, this time she's outdone herself. You make a small joke about April Fool's Day, and she translates that into "you want to hunt people down and kill them"! Now, to me, it sounds like she is either jumping on any post she can to spread her hatefulness and bitterness, or else she needs psychiatric help.

 

Most likely it's both.

International Blasphemy Rights Day is a time to to protest any attempt to prohibit free speech, and a day to remember that some countries punish their citizens with fines, imprisonment, and even death if found guilty of blasphemy.

Please show me where I twisted any words? I based my opinion on what you posted bill. That's not twisting.

So invictus starts a thread about atheist, Bill insults us by insinuating we are all fools. Best calls him on it and O No and Bill act as though Best is just taking things out of context.

 

Are you guys serious?

 

So Bill's post was not meant to be an insult?

Hi Dark,

 

What did I write?   Judge me for what I write -- not what you BELIEVE I meant.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill

Let's discuss honesty, bill, is this a true statement? Were you being honest when you posted this??

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

PRAY FOR OUR MILITARY CHAPLAINS! -- Our very liberal, very secular CURRENT government has tied the "spiritual" hands and  feet of our military chaplains -- and, then asks them to serve the spiritual needs of those serving in our military.  As of today, our chaplains cannot teach what the Bible teaches -- that homosexuality is against the will of God.  Our chaplains are to pray -- but, NEVER, NEVER mention Jesus Christ.

And, the reason?  Our very liberal, very secular CURRENT government believes this will upset the atheists, Muslims, and those in other world religions.   But, let me ask you.  How many atheists, Muslims, Buddhist, etc. -- do you think WILL be attending the Christian worship services -- where the chaplains are NOT allowed to pray to Jesus?

Bill, is this a true statement? Are you being honest?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hi Jennifer,

 

IF you had ever been a Christian -- I am sure you would have heard of Joni Eareckson Tada.   But, you say you have not, I guess that settles it. 

Bill, we could fill up so many pages with your word twisting and posts insinuating things about people that I am very surprised that you'd have the nerve to claim someone has done that to you. Post after post of your stupid little question to someone-"are you trying to tell us something". When I ask you why you discriminated against g a y s you posted your insinuation that I must be *** for asking that and you used that "is there something you'd like to tell us" line. I called you on it, of course you never responded. You are not man enough to ever own up to the crap you pull.

I know that atheists have very little to support their beliefs and lifestyle

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Support what kind of lifestyle bill? Care to elaborate? Tell me about atheist's lifestyles. Tell me about mine, then tell me how you know.

Hi Jennifer,

 

Yes, I believe I am.  Joni Eareckson Tada is a very well known lady and evangelical speaker -- so, I find it hard to believe that most every Christian has not heard of her.  But, for someone who played at church as a teenager -- and for the next 10, 20, 30? years has run fast and hard away from God; I can see how that person has not heard of her.

 

But, this link will tell you more about her, her accident, and her life since the accident -- truly a God inspired story:   http://www.joniearecksontadastory.com/

 

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill

I'm not the least bit interested in her bill and it's asinine for you to say all christians should know her. Now tell me, how you know I "played" at church? Is that an honest statement bill? What would lead you to believe I played at church? Is it because your children did and your grandchildren do that now?

Hi Jennifer,

 

Don't  just huff and puff -- DO IT!   I would love to see what you consider "nasty" from a Christian.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

So, it would appear from your last post that you CANNOT do as you said -- produce all of my evil posts.

 

Okay, so, let's give all of our Forum Friends a rest and move on to more productive discussions.  This has just become a "spitting contest" -- which you love.  But, as for me, I will just move on.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Evil? Twisting words there slick? Careful, ohno hates that. They are already "produced", they are all over the forum. I produced one about your claim about "the current administration and you ignored it. "Spitting contest" means I got you again. "Move on" is bill speak for run away. That's what you do best.

  But, for someone who played at church as a teenager -- and for the next 10, 20, 30? years has run fast and hard away from God; I can see how that person has not heard of her.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

There, I "produced" another.

Actually, DA, YOUR response to Bill's post is perfectly reasonable. You question what he meant, and you assume, given the flippant tone of his post, plus your knowledge of his beliefs, that he meant it as an insult. I've got absolutely no problem with that at all.

 

But JENNIFER somehow took that same knowledge and construed it to mean that Bill wants to hunt down and kill atheists. She did something similar over in politics not that long ago, when she accused Rocky of wanting to see all of our soldiers come home in a box, simply because he posted about Repubs being less charitable. Instead of chalking it up to the constant disagreement between left and right over there, she over reacted and claimed that Rocky's assertion about helping the needy meant he wanted US servicemen dead! Where did she get THAT?? Where does she get that Bill wants to hunt down and kill atheists?

 

 Only in the darkest and bitterest parts of her heart.

 

First of all ohno, no one's heart or mind is as black as yours and lately you seem to be going more insane with each passing day. You haven't had unob to argue with so you're lashing out at me. So now you tell me how his words were twisted. You do know what an opinion is don't you? I posted my opinion based on bill's post. NO changing or twisting. Now you show me the joke part. Twisted words and posts? Old gal you win the crown for doing that.  I don't remember discussing our troops with rocky.

Show me that discussion and my post.

OK, Jennifer, here you go:

Ferrellj, which is better. A compassionate person stopping to help a homeless man or someone who is like let's say: one of your fellow thugs who post on this forum, Stuck in Traffic or any of the others like let's say; Jennifer, who would pass this man by with the utterance of lazy parasite. And which is better, a cable outlet which actually GAVE this man a job or one that spews a line of individual responsibility yet offers no assistance to an individual who does not meet their "criteria" for receiving an offer. ie: a governor who has quit her job, or a commentator who was fired from another media outlet for controversial remarks. Which one shows the TRUE meaning of charity???????????

You are so freaking insane I don't see how you even function. I give more to charity in one year than you will give in your entire miserable life. Who did YOU help this year rockhead? Did you send a gift package to a soldier? I did, but of course you didn't. Your kind hates the military and wishes they'd all come home in boxes. Did you send money to St. Judes? Oh hell no you didn't. You kept the money your mommy and daddy gave their "little man." You need to just STFU because you have no idea about me or anyone else you rail against. You are a bitter, nasty, selfish, waste of human flesh. You're worthless, no, you're less than worthless. IF you ever move out of your mommy and daddy's house you're in for a rude awakening. No one is going to pet and pamper you and tell you you're special like your mommy does. And if you run that foul mouth to people in "real life" like you run it in this forum someone will knock those teeth out for you. You stupid spoiled brat. You need an attitude adjustment and one day someone will give it to you. I wish I could see it.

Sure sounds angry and bitter to me. Actually, you sound totally out of control.

I guess you just happened to NOT see his post:

 

"Ferrellj, which is better. A compassionate person stopping to help a homeless man or someone who is like let's say: one of your fellow thugs who post on this forum, Stuck in Traffic or any of the others like let's say; Jennifer, who would pass this man by with the utterance of lazy parasite."

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Now miss high and mighty, you tell me where he had the right to post what he did, what you would call his opinion, and I wouldn't have the right to post MY opinion of him and his kind???  Or did I "twist" his words about what he said?

You completely ignore the assumption rocky posted about me but you have a problem when I give it back to him. I didn't twist his words, I told him what I thought about him and his kind. That was not twisting his words, that was telling him, after what he posted about me, what I thought of him. Once again you prove it is you that loves to twist things around. Why not ask him why he couldn't post in the general Republican vs Democrat vein but instead had to post what he did about me? Don't bother, I know why.

Bill is probably just guilty of not reading the whole original post, then posting his snide remark.  Of course he accuses others of doing the same with his posts.  The main difference being his run for dozens of paragraphs, and the original post here was only about five. 

 

So, Bill, here is an opportunity to set us straight - read the whole post, and tell us you would still make your "joke" again.  If you would, then it is safe to surmise you have a problem with free speech.

I see no difference in his saying what he said about me, and my telling him what I thought of him. Be careful old gal, it might just be that "everyone else" is beginning to see you for what you are. I didn't take any post and twist any words, I responded to what he said about me by giving him my opinion of him. So in a nutshell you think it's fine for him to say I'd walk by a needy person and ignore them, but I can't tell him what I think he'd do. I don't really care what "class" you think I'm in, no matter which it is it's higher than yours. That stfu remark came after days of back and forth with him and similar posts from him about ALL rethuglicans. Now you supposedly don't like things like that but I don't think I've ever seen you call him or anyone else on it. You really want to sit and call me names when you have rabid people like rocky insulting every republican that posts on there? I think anyone could rightfully call rocky angry, bitter and full of hate, except maybe you. That says way more about you than it does me.

 

You knew exactly what bill meant by his post. But that didn't stop you from plowing ahead and getting on that "twisted words"  horse you've been riding for the last few days. Telling you for the last time, I have opinions, I base them on the things people post. There is no need to twist it, it is what it is. So you go ahead and post the twisted word chant after every post I or anyone else makes. I just don't care. BTW, you posted that I had made that post "a short time ago". It was 10 months ago and one post. I had forgotten about it. But again, I stand by what I said to him.

Actually, you can ask Rocky or anyone else on the politics forum - I have chastised Rocky MANY MANY times for the way he sometimes posts. I have told him he makes us Dems look bad by writing such childish and insulting things.

 

But for him to call you a "Rethuglican" is no different than you calling him a "Democrite". Both are equally childish. But I never saw him accuse you and "your kind" of wanting soldiers dead. I never saw him tell you you are a "waste of human flesh", or that he'd like to see someone "put you in your place", or knock your teeth out.

 

As a matter of fact, the ONLY other person I have EVER seen post such vile stuff as you did here, is the very "Stuck in Traffic" Rocky spoke of in his post. Remember him? He had several other names, but always used the same avatar - a Mexican bandito. And he always used foul and hateful language.

 

Jennifer, when I first posted this morning, DA was on the board. My first post of the day was addressed to her, about you. Even though she was logged in for quite a while after that, she didn't respond. I think (I could be wrong), that SHE sees how over the top your posts have become too.

____________________________________________________________________

 

 

      First off, who are the (Mormans) SIC?

Now I’m getting defensive.

There isn’t such thing as a (Morman) SIC, or as far as that goes a Mormon. Mormon is the correct spelling of the title of the Book of Mormon. It is also is a nickname of a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.

      You tell Bill,” You are the epitomy (SIC) of everything that is wrong with the Baptist church. You could teach Mormans (SIC) a few things.

       I ask you rimshot, what could he teach us? What is meant by this?

As far as the topic Day of Blasphemy, I agree totally with it. For Governments throughout time have been incorporating Religion into State with devastating results. That’s why our forefathers had the wisdom to keep the Country and Religion Separate.

      In 1838  Missouri governor Lilburn W. Boggs issued his Mormon Extermination Order. It was finally rescinded after 138 years. This meant exactly what it states, that it was Mormon Hunting Season. A member of the Church had no property rights and could be killed on sight in the Missouri area. This all came about from the Governor for fear of his Political status. I’m all for freedom of speech. Even your’s rimshot.

Skippy

Jennifer, when I first posted this morning, DA was on the board. My first post of the day was addressed to her, about you. Even though she was logged in for quite a while after that, she didn't respond. I think (I could be wrong), that SHE sees how over the top your posts have become too.

 

One day you will finally realize this, you are nothing to me, you have no opinion that means anything to me, you have no influence on me. When you finally figure that out you may be able to lose a bit of your obsession with me. Maybe unob will be back and you can start back up with him. He always could yank your chain pretty good. Now I'm going out for a while so try to get along without me for a few hours.

Well, honestly I just did not see your post O No.

 

I don't believe that Best response to Bill was wrong. I think we are all aware of how Bill feels about us and no matter how many times he says he does not really want a theocracy, he turns around and makes comments to the contrary. Either he didn't actually read the original post or he did and he does not support free speech and expression. He basically said we were fools. So, although I will not say that I always see eye to eye with Best, I agree with her assessment and opinion of Bill.

 

If we woke up tomorrow with the type of government that Bill would like to see, the atheist would be in serious trouble. We would most definitely be in danger of possibly loosing our lives. We can look at other countries where theocracy is the rule and see it happening. It is not a stretch, it is reality in those societies.

_______________________________

Bill, if we all posted the word twisting & posts where you have insinuated things about people on here, the forum would crash. Now, you can bash me along with Jenn & accuse me of starting a spitting contest.

 

I have called you several times on the fact that you have twisted my words or insinuated things I didn't say. I've seen you do the same things to others. When someone mentions it, you refuse to answer & run off to start another topic. You are a Christian pretending coward that won't stand up to your many lies.

 

We can give all your Forum Friends a rest & move on to more productive discussions??? Gosh, thank you, Bill, for giving us your permission. Exactly who is it that calls it a spitting contest when we're having a discussion that doesn't fit your criteria?

You have fooled some people on here but you for sure don't fool me & you will not fool God when you stand before him!

 

If I felt like it & didn't have more important things coming against me right now then you, I would find some of those post to show you.

 

You act like you despise Jenn, & come against her every chance you get. That is so Christian of you!!

She has more decency, love, & compassion in her little finger than you have in your whole body.

 

You make me sick!! Now run to the mods & keep trying to have me banned. Yes, I know all about that & you're a liar if you say you haven't!

Ok, you can run start another topic now, AFTER you report me to the mods AGAIN!!
