The more you tell a teenaged boy that a certain movie or CD or video game is somehow imbued with seductive mystical power the more interested they will become in that thing.
Oh the pain.
I mean, don't get me wrong, that's only one of many things that are stupid about this rant, but it's a common and pernicious failing.
I am also continually boggled by the notion that an omnipotent god could be defied and confounded in his designs by his own creation. If Satan has any power, God made it that way, right? So... shouldn't it be okay to do what Satan wants? Because he's God's intended creation? I mean, I know there's all that crap about it being a "test" and about how we're supposed to resist temptation, but that doesn't hold any goddamn water. These people don't even seem to understand what their own dogma means.
Ugh. All these words and I still can't express how dumb I think this is. It's a jealous hissy-fit that people are paying too much attention to something besides church.
Oh, and it's easier for a rich man on a camel to get to the top of the Space Needle than it is for a pure and virtuous but not wealth woman, cause she's supposed to be two steps behind him and seen but not heard.
... did I get the Mars Hill creed right?
Jaws should be #1
A girl can dream.......
It's true. They get awfully butthurt anytime someone borrows their Jesus without asking, even though they stole it from the neighbors in the first place.
Says the man who mentions his two home theatres and three TiVos in a tirade against worldliness.
...has he not ever heard of The Excorcist ?
I bet he boils puppies because the cuteness is a sign of satan's perversion.
BTW, racism and cultural appropriation and mis-representation in main-stream media of indigenous struggles that are still going on in the REAL world right here *IS* reality. How those films normalize racism and appropriation and mis-inform *IS* real. Maybe you find it easy to live off the benefits of genocide and then mock those whose blood you benefit from, and allow others to get filthy rich off that mockery...but don't belittle those of us who use those critical thinking skills and find the situation to be a little disturbing.
Yes, it's a movie. So were all those films Hitler made.
While I don't think Avatar was meant to be propaganda, it has some issues when it comes to racism and indigenous struggles. So, while you may disagree with the complaints of those who look at the film thru the lens of critical race theory, please don't lump that in with illogical rants of sociopathic fundamentalists.
BTW...my accusations weren't veiled. I was saying that those who are consciously okay with the situation are racists, while reserving the possibility that complete blind stupidity may be make one's ignorance partially excusable.
I do apologize for my lack of a sense of humor about racism and the on-going genocide against native people in the world today. I'll try to work on being soulless and ignorant so I may one day be as "funny" as you.
Not just for Catholics anymore.
I'm sure he was just really offended by all the near nudity and the fact the the main female character was a powerful warrior and teacher who clearly wasn't about to shut up and listen to her man and squeeze out some babies in between preparing his meals.
Thanks for "unpacking" that for us. The cost of your Evergreen education was money well spent.
" What's the lie? It's a fantasy, not reality. "
Which, Avatar or the Bible?
Sounds like Christianity as I was taught it... What a dickwad.
But I guess we should consider ourselves lucky that he doesn't want us gays to die.
