That's a great quote by Mark Twain, Sentient. I've never heard that one before.
These xtian butt-heads are so unbelievable. They want the religious freedom to use a scientifically discredited method that causes proven irreparable harm to children because some of the licensed therapists are clergy. Those clergy should have their licenses revoked for malpractice.
Christian group files lawsuit against state of california, over "conversion therapy" ex-gay ban. queerty.com
"Another Christian group, the Florida-based Liberty Counsel, is also planning on filing a suit against the law"*
There has been only one Christian. They caught him and crucified him–early. (Mark Twain)
I really love one-liners and quick comebacks...if you want to buy a book like The Portable Curmudgeon, check out Hlf.com. They have very good used books at iincredibly reasonable prices (plus S & H, of course)
Another good one is The Atheist's Bible. The following is in both books: "Puritanism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy." H.L. Mencken
I've heard that one paraphrased as"...may be having fun."
And today, you could substitute "Fundamentalism" for "Puritanism."
Sk8 - great quotes!
Another paraphrased quote (From robert A. Heinlein's Friday):
"Most human progress has been made by people who got tired of being pushed around,"
PS: One of my favorite books is The Portable Curmudgeon, compiled and edited by Jon Winokur
I've decided that, looking at the course of human history, Homo sapiens should be renamed Homo odium. Modern events are no exception. OK there are exceptions, but I'm feeling curmudgeonly.
Imagining yourself in someone else's situation is called empathy and it is one of the highest forms of evolution. Even rats exhibit empathy. The problem is that not every member of every species has evolved to this point, which results in something such as religion.
"...bigots are so stupid...."
That's the main reason they are bigots. They've never tried to imagine themselves in anybody else's situation.
No imagination, either. They've been brainwashed since infancy to know that they are the "right" kind of people, and that everyone who is not exactly like them in every way is "wrong."
G. B. Shaw - Caesar and cleopatra:
Pardon him. Theodotus: he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
UK Christian Institute: There are so few gays, they should not be allowed to marry. The article mentions, there are even fewer Jews in the UK - so maybe they shouldn't be allowed to marry either. Or for that matter, Blacks, Chinese, White Irish..... Religious bigots are so stupid.
Richard and Dominic, bigots touch our lives in so many ways. That's why we have this group. You are both right to be pissed off.
Someone who I have known for 10 years died last week. "Sweet old lady" who once told me, regarding our now-president, "I would never vote for a [n-word]. It floored me. I used the word "sweet" with sarcasm. I don't like to speak ill of the dead, but in her case I thought, now someone else can use the oxygen.
