Santorum, "Liberals= Soviet era Atheists"

Quote:
The intolerance of the left, the intolerance of the secular ideology, it is a religion unto itself, it is just not a biblical based religion, and it is the most intolerant," Santorum said. "Just like we saw from the days of the atheists of the Soviet Union, it is completely intolerant of dissent. They fear dissent. Why? Because the dissent comes from folks who use reason, common sense, and divine revelation and they want no part of any of those things."
Derp........ Wow..... McCarthyism anyone?

This, right here, is proof that bullshit will always be an effective means of persuading people. If you can stand up and proclaim that Christians (the majority) are being persecuted in the United States, and have people believe you, you can sell the people any crock of shit you want.

Yea, I don't think PRick knows what irony is....

Since irony isn't explicitly mentioned in the Book be claims to know so much about.....

Which IS actually kind of ironic, given his message of hate and not love.

I had to read that sentence three times. He actually used the words "reason, common sense" AND "divine revelation" all in reference to each other. Just pretend I'm a retarded kid, and please explain what "divine revelation" has to do with reason and common sense? Other than under the influence of a basket of 'shrooms, just how the fuck do they relate?

For future reference Sage, please try to refrain from mentioning this crazy xenophobic fuck's name. Maybe if we ignore it, it'll all just dry up and go away?

Also, it isn't irony when he says it, it's sarcasm.

Just another war mongering "kill the other people" good Christian Crazy for Christ Cult Closet sucker of Cock, anxious to make sure that babies of rape enjoy the life that he can't wait to take from anybody that doesn't look like him - the jail rape victim that I pray he will one day be.

I honestly want to skull fuck his eye holes while he sucks my balls and tongues my taint, more and more every time that I see him.

(The following is just to get us talking a little man, nothing boiling over or passionately assertive about this, just figure we can chat a little?

I'll answer/bullshitmywaythrough your question and see what we come up with....

Not sure if I'm playing devils advocate here or just putting some thoughts in a blender and pouring them out for you...

I find clarity IN the process of talking at times... so lets go a few rounds for fun

)


Honestly Galt, me being me, I can idealize a politician (someday, somewhere) even saying 'divine revelation' and it not being a 'bad' thing.....

Sadly God, if you will, is a rather limited by a lot of people religious/spiritual as well as those that are NOT either of the previous labels, especially the loud ones.

Why is it always with the squeaky wheels and the grease?! OYE!

To be quick... 'Divine Revelation' ought to be not a lot more than a label one uses to describe a knowing of one's self so well that intuition and ideas naturally arise.

The 'Divine' might be better used/understood in a way one might use 'godly' as a synonym for perfect/pure.....

IDK.... what I'll get to in the end of this post is that if we just 'Are' ... if we'd all focus ourselves more on the Verbness of Life and not get so hung up defining the Nouns, modifiers like 'divine' would get dropped and one would just have a 'revelation', which is divine and godly.... but doesn't mean that is where it came from at all.

(Deep Tangent)

You call me a Buddhist a lot... and perhaps in a true sense I am, as I would label it my second womb, or hell... even my 'born again' experience in knowing and practicing a Path of intentional living....

So you're not incorrect in calling me thus....

But I deep down believe you aren't far off associating me as a spiritual advocate of the Purest in All Religion.
I seek deeply to bring people together on the good stuff and to practice their own personal dances with a Right Understanding and Intention.

But to be honest I was born, raised and highly active in a Christian family,church and community. I really connected with it and after a long time away from that particular telling/allegory I came back and found myself again in it, even if perhaps on the fringes....

Point being, and without getting into how I feel about religious labels and what they really mean in relation to an understanding the Known, the Knower and the Knowing,

.....I'd basically consider myself a Buddhist Christian or to be wider about it maybe I'd rather say I practice Dharma through Buddhist and Abrahamic languages, however the Dharma logic usually proceeding the contemplation on Abrahamic rendering of the story.


(Bringing it back in)


I can't agree with you more about the way that Rick is showing the world what he believes and how he understands it.

Ultimately I know that this dude is doing what we're all doing, which is try to stay happy and not suffer....

But man... some folk's way of getting there is ..... !!!!!!!


Maybe this reply would have been better in Higher Thoughts ?

This post might have been a little biographical and maybe didn't speak right at what you were saying, but like I said... I thought I'd just talk a little and get some banter and bullshit rolling


A point of the post is to just say, it's sad that this is how Rick represents Religion and Spiritual communities, because like I said and I'm sure you know.... the loud ones are the way to show us what a movement 'REALLY is' and the media eats it up.

(Ok... back out now... put your right foot in and shake it all about)

Like would I be okay with the Dalai Lama, if elected, being the leader of our country and bringing in his brand of spirituality?

Pretty much....

And I know there are sensible people of Christian traditions as well as others that are just as sensible about their practices and life integration that the 'Church-State' line, might not need to exist?



But in today's world I understand where it came from and why it's needed.

And thank who-ever you will, that it's there



Ideally I work towards not living with a dualistic and dichotomous view of the world. Science/Religion, Theist/Atheist, Church/State, because ideally used and utilized, the knowledge basis of neither would 'conflict' with the other, but rather be making us stronger as a world and human community....

If only each would open up to the others Truths... while at the same time being realistic about where/how those Truths came about.

(For instance and more common in, Eastern Religions welcome scientific inquiry into their practices and some beliefs/practices have been dropped or accepted in a different way depending on the outcome of experiments and in light of new data)

I don't necessarily expect to see this Oneness happen on a large scale... but I do have the pleasure of witnessing humans who live their lives in this way, which I feel is for the benefit of all, since we aren't an island and void of external factors...

(In once more)

Long story short... to me it doesn't matter if God exists or Not...
Who EXACTLY Jesus was....
I don't know what will happen when I die...

But I believe that where and how I've centered myself, to grow, explore and evaluate, in this world is still of benefit to Us, despite the unknowns.

So called 'opinions from the other side' aren't an Other and I listen to what their explanations are as well.


(Close)

Thanks for letting me wrap about this freely and longly...

More than anything I wanted to get a little deeper into why his 'religious agenda' sort of gets to me and why I don't feel like it represents me as a person or in relation to where I am in that community of folks.

I DID talk more about how I connect on the relgio-spiritual side, because it's the 'side' I'm on, so to speak, but this doesn't me I discredit the separation of the two. You know I talk in ideals a lot... so sprinkle that into the 'how I see it'.

I hear and understand your frustrations man.... I think we can agree that this man's agenda is off base and not healthy.... whether there is or isn't a .....

Ya know?

I'll end on what I believe is common ground


Kindly,
SageTree

Thoughtful as ever my friend. I only regret that one of his ilk is the cause of such sincere considerations. The duality that you mentioned is unfortunately a fact of our existence, because again, as you always epitomize, there are truly spiritual people who leave little doubt as to their goodness, and there are those that we may spend eons trying to find that sliver of light in. The most unfortunate part of that dichotomy is that those who have sequestered that spark as far up their ass as Pricky, are the ones that desire the power to rule as well. This moves the conversation to the "fuck what good he may eventually show - right now that asshole wants the keys to the car!"

I'm not pickin' but I honestly feel that you are attempting to juggle pineapples and H-Bombs when you attempt a discourse on spirituality and a political whooer of his particular stank all in the same breath. I see nothing in how the stench of his reference to divinity would relate to your premise. He is a genuinely dangerous POS that will use any and every means available to him to satisfy his overblown ego. Just for a moment consider the REAL potential expressed by one so totally consumed by hubris. He is nothing if not horribly dangerous, and should be labeled, sealed in a plastic lined dumpster and handled accordingly (after I have had my way with his skull parts of course).

Rather than waste the excitement of any more electrons on the worthless turd, I would suggest that with your question of its impact on the spiritual community at large, we consider the truth of real evil existing amongst us. Political bombast and bloviations aside, I have a very hard time being accepting of all orgasmiszed religions, or cults as I feel they are more appropriately named. The most egregious types of xenophobes and self serving pricks that I have ever met carry the torch of their cult before them, and the Christians and Jews have generally proved the most dangerous and despicable of the bunch to me, followed closely by the Muslims on the whole. Fans of Buddha and Hindus have not as yet shown themselves so reliably fetid to me, but I generally expect that it is only a matter of time until they do (present and other limited company having already been excluded from that blanket stereotype).

My ying to your yang again I suppose. Show me any of these cults where even just their barest majority manages to execute the Golden Rule reliably in their daily life, and I shall gladly fast, repent, confess and self flagellate in contrition... but I think we both recognize that there is little chance that my arrogance is likely to have its underpinnings challenged on that count.

In my sardonic little world of shit heels and scum bags, I find it best to leave the proof of spirituality up to the acts of myself and those that would lay claim to the tag. Better that it be kept that personal in thought and focus otherwise on just deeds.




Regardless... I will fill the closet queer cuckold's cranium with cascading quarts of consecrated cum.

Until he is 1 step away from being relevant, who gives a shit what he thinks? Are any of you republican? What you guys think about what he thinks doesn't matter until November 6.

He's relevant because he has the big stage to spew his shit. You think all the newly converted idiots who buy into his tripe go away because he doesn't get elected?

The only reason that he warrants a wreath of garlic around your neck at this stage is the troubling effect of momentum on the herd. Should he gain any more real traction that might give cause for the other turds to self immolate, and he suddenly be the only one standing, other than presumably Ron Paul, THAT would be scary, and it has been known to happen before. Just look at how the nobody from Illinois knocked off the machine's master mechanic last go 'round.

The only hope I see anywhere in any of this is that I believe the GOP will not be able to focus on just one before their convention, and that enhances at least an outside chance for Dr. Paul to seal the deal. Faced with a choice of Obama or Sanitarium, I would choose Alfred E. Newman.

Also what Ric said... this kind of shit spewing font is best kept shoved up his own ass - not unleashed on the public airwaves nightly. There are too many stupid people in the world, and at some point they might just line up enough of them to get a POS like him elected. It worked for Bush and Obama, why not him too. They were all disgraceful and embarrassing idiot fails of the highest magnitude, and yet the fucktards still line up to point fingers and defend the indefensible. The election of nearly all of our past Presidents proves the culpable ignorance of the voters in America. The question is nearly never whether an idiot will be elected, but only which flavor idiot this time 'round.

DH, you may be the only motherfucker 'round these parts that can make me seem optimistic. Not often, and not by much, but every once in a while you make me think I'm gettin' a little too cheerful about our prospects,... and I only expect a total economic collapse and complete subjugation at the end of a gun barrel.

You don't have to be elected to be in "power", you just need a stage. Look at hannity, orally and limblah. They sway minds.
