    Makes Me Proud to be a Mennonite!

    While the bible is an interesting book of alegories I don't believe in Christ the same way you do, i do not believe in his divinity. Also, that was one of the biggest insults I would always hear. yeah, my suffering is small compared to your but Jesus died for us! Repent, be our beast of burden and give us our money! If you stay poor it's because our God dislikes you, God bless! That was something that always annoyed me about the bible, Yahweh is so unbelievably spiteful it's disgusting. Only thing that made him look tame were the Jews of the old testament. While Americans love to spam the LGBT community with sodom and gomorah they always leave out the part where they were uncharitable. Big suprise they've lost so many people as of late, I really do think younger people especially men have had it with the spitefulness, the meanness, the hypocracy and the overall horrible behavior of US Christian population in general. I'm waiting for them to finally make someone like Antifa mad to the point where they show up at a major house of worship and give everyone a real run for the money. When I left WA state I sure got to see it, some of em are pretty scary. Worst part is how liberal politicans let them get away with it I pm'd you the vid, won't post it here. Thing I'd keep in mind is there are a lot of very angry people in that part of the county who've been displaced by gentrification and entitlement. Will never forget hearing from Christians LDS and non LDS I was poor because I had offended God, they would not help me. Guilt by association is a thing, sucky as it is, hey that's life and a lot of these people hate you and well, your outnumbered. I followed this closely, this guy was defending himself and shot no one, if he had not had that firearm those thugs would have rushed him and probably killed him. Thing most people don't understand is a lot of these thugs are felons and have nothing to lose, that and the courts don't really want to deal with them, they're overloaded as it is. I'm just waiting for someone to open their mouth about the LGBT community or some other oppressed group and really stir up the hornets next, won't be so funny when they show up at some megachurch on a sunday morning when everyones families are there. Have to say, from my viewpoint they would deserve it, they made the bad karmic action, they get to reap the karmic affects. This is also why I ultimatly said no to Christianity, esp. as it is here in the states, while there are good people like you and well, pretty much everyone I know on this board your religion is just loaded with a bunch of entitled bigots who've done nothing but make the poorer majority just hate them for being alive. Have to admit, will chuckle a bit when this happens, karma applies to us all, be us mortal or a god, even the Buddha himself was subject to the laws of the universe. It's because of how I was treated I re-connected with buddhism and at this point, may take the big step and take laypersons vows and go all out. At least they're honest and disciplined, when a religion turns out that much entitled garbage and is the subject of assaults, it's time to take a look at the people and take responsibility for their behavior.

    Pretty much. I like the idea of getting kids in sports, that's what mom did and most of the sucessful parents I knew did as well. Knew a cardiologist who graduated from Harvard who was on their fencing team, was Chinese american and married a Japanese national who was a Biochem major. Big suprise, two out of the three sons fenced as well, the oldest is now fencing for Harvard and will either go the engineering or medical route like his father. Sports are an amazing thing as far as combating degeneracy goes.

    I know people who have devoted their lives to their families and modeled their careers to make it happen. Besides their day jobs most of their income is passive. I get you, times are really rough and yeah, it does suck for the involved parties. In my case, they have no excuse. They literally had everything handed to them and they not only had the nerve to insult the family matriarch, they took having people who were literally a combination of Jesus and Thor in human form for granted, to someone like me who's life growing up was pure hell that's unforgivable, they deserve their misery. In my Uncles case he was not particularly religious but he assimilated into a religious family line all for the sake of his children and his thanks was ungrateful grandchildren who just shot their mouths off.

    My money would still be on the swiss pikemen, they were just so well trained and did such a good job of scaring even the best knights. Can thank them for helping end chivalry, that and their evolution into Terciero units. Thing is, when you've been harmed as a child, opressed and backstabbed enough by a religion you get to the point where you cannot stand them as a rule and think nothing when their kind gets assaulted by those they've harmed. The Catholics have done an incredible amount of harm esp to the free folk of northern Europe. I will give pope francis, he's the first pope i've ever seen who apologized to the Lutherans for the slaughter their kind made happen. Also, that's a cardinal value I have, accountability. I do judge Christians for the harm they do as well as their entitlement. I'd need to see 4 generations of Christian behavior, the likes we used to see back in the day. So many of us have been harmed by them and will never forget how we suffered and to a great extent would like revenge of some kind. Seeing their numbers decline and islam move in is a bit satisfying TBH. My hope is if Germany survives the migrant hordes that were imposed on them they take a huge swing to the right and return to worshiping our own gods, not those things from the desert. Lived in Alaska, besides Hawaii i may well buy a home in my old neiborhood, much cheaper than down here, also a better class of people. One thing that my Alaska buddies tell me is they watch what's happening down here and are making plans. They've seen people move into CO and now UT and change the demographic. Our gun rights are being taken away and now violent crime is going up as well as taxes and everything else. I don't feel like paying for the mistakes of degenerate garbage people, I say let them and their children be torn apart by the garbage elements they bring with them. I remember when we had the recession there were states that spoke of splitting from the union, if we get that poor we may see that be a posibility again, can't put boots on the ground if you don;t have the funds.

    Video games

    Watch your grandsons like hawks, bad things have happened that way. Not sure how streetwise your grandkids are, for me I was always leary of people even way back in the day. The Internet is still a very scary place and lots of bad people know parents use video games as glorified babysitters. Is Dare still a thing? I'd call the local PD and see if they have anything like they did in the mcgruff days where they taught kids things about streetsmarts. When I was in the boyscouts we had stuff like this, granted that was back in the day when things were kinda normal. I think.,,, Most of you guys are parents, do they put things like this out there anymore?

    Video games

    Most of the time when i'm playing games it's because I'm sick, homebound and can't go outside. I'll never understand why an able bodied guy would waste a perfectly good summer day inside when he could be in the woods, in Gods country where we're supposed to be (Just my opinion). Can't speak for you guys, for people like me who spent part of our childhood as latchey kids video games where a babysitter when mom had to work so games have always had a special spot for me. Was even more so for my friends who came from similar socio economic backgrounds. When my best friends folks split, his mom could no longer afford their home so they went from a nice middle class suburb to someplace in the hood. Didn't help that the friends he lived next to and went to mass with turned their backs on him, the parents didn't want their kids associating with the child of a divorcee, real Christ like behavior right there.... Anyway, he had the same problem I did, most of the kids he knew from then on were kinda thugs who came from very messed up families. Most of em got into fights all the time, smoked lots of dope and other things, stole and eventually got into gangs. He ended up doing what I did, keeping to himself and playing games because it was safer. Like me he saw his old friends drop off one by one, many due to drugs and alcoholism. It's a scary thing when you see someone you used to help babysit OD at the age of 21. This was my experience with video games as well as that of my friends, it gave us an escape from a world that was rather hostile and cared nothing for us, we were the throw away kids who didn't count. Take all this for what its worth.

    Ah, someone who knows our gods, hail friend. Vidar, one of Odins sons was always my patron. Not quite as strong as Thor, but a lot smarter, about as smart as the Allfather. He's the god of silent retribution, he hangs on the outskirts of society, the boarders between civilization and the wild. His rune is the Hooksangle, the wolfhook. At the end of time after Fenrir devours Odin Vidar will jam his foot right in his jaw and kill him, avenging his father. He also survives Ragnarok and as far as I can tell, takes over leadership of the Aesir and overseas the rebuilding. Good book for you to read sometime, Der Warwulf, it's about a bunch of protestant farmers who survive the 30 years war by resorting to gurilla warfare. They call themselves the Warwulves, carve wolfhook runes in threes as boundaries and just hang enemies from trees. Reason why I asked about your Lutheran background, that's one thing I held onto as part of my heritage. The Germans I descended from supposedly came over here after WWI, but we've been here since the beginning, we fought in the revolutionary war. We fled the 30 years war, some of us stuck around as Swiss Pikemen and I'm pretty sure a few landsknechts. People here have it so good, they have no idea what people fled from and considering the way we're going we may well have something of it over here soon. White flight isn't much of an option, we hate each other, we think nothing of just screwing each other over and never consider the consequences to the children and society as a whole. Somethings going to break soon and I think in the long run it will be a good thing. IF it takes a bit of violence to shake people out of their entitled minds so be it, as bad as the 30 years war was, it sure fixed a lot of the corruption as well as put the pope in his place. I'm careful who I say this too, it bothers me the airs some of the Catholics I've known over the years have about some aspects of US culture, esp. our individualism and how Protestantism is so prevalent as well as her ideas about individual liberty, no need for some priest to tell you whats up and how this led the way to the freedom we have now. Since i've had family that goes that far back it's a big thing for me, not everyone has that in their family tree. Freedom isn't free, no religion has a right to impose it's viewpoint on me esp. when you look at the tyrrany religion and state brought on people and at times, it does take violent action to ensure our God given rights are maintained. That's something I really like about the Mormons, you can talk about these things. Bring this type of thing up with other people and wow they get mad and uppity, like bringing up history and documented truth is a sin. You might like this.

    Last horror movie you watched.

    I've read they have a lot of stabbings though, also acid attacks. They have restrictions on knife purchases don't they? That's kinda dumb i think. What always bothers me is people forget how much easier it is to kill people with a car vs. A gun. Unless your trained with a firearm your not going to take out as many people. Never forget when i was a kid and those two guys who i think were marines robbed a bank in LA, took a lot of LAs SWAT to take em out. Meanwhile thanks to terrorists driving trucks through city markets they've had to set up roadblocks, in Germany they call em Merkel blocks. People as a rule are not nice and will always find a way to kill eachother, as a Christian board would think that would be understoon, look at cain and abel. You start doing like CA, OR and WA people just hide their guns and do nothing when then see some kid getting assaulted. Besides not wanting to risk a felony for using an illegal firearm, the law abiding people now resent their neibors even more, many times assuming they're gun hating liberals. Know that's how i felt when i was up there. Always made more sense to have some sort of mandatory military service for both genders and state as well as nation sponsored marksmanship competitions like the Swiss have. An armed and properly trained society is a safe and respectful society.

    Stirred up with Hatred

    If I had dared do that with my mom I'd have been smacked, the joys of being multi racial. Anyway, wow kids here really do that? Not joking here. The Human Growth and Development class I took this past fall was an eye opener for me, families here are interesting.

    Call me a fanboy, one of my dreamguns is the HKG36. Thanks to the gunban we ended up with the SL8, the stock sucks but can be swapped out. I'm terrified what Peloski and her slimeball friends have in mind, these red flag gun seizure laws scare me, so hope the cartels move into their neiborhoods and give em a taste of what the rest of us have had to put up with for years. Anyway, yeah that SL8 + the conversion is going to cost me so much and will have to wait till i'm done with my nursing stuff, i'm going to have so much fun when I have the funds for expensive toys... Also, scaredy cat eh? lol.....

    Rosalynde Welch: Alcohol, Addiction, and Abstinence

    That was what I ran into, entitled people from the burbs who thought they were better than me, who had the attitude that they had their wealth because they were the elect. Always liked the idea of putting a Mosque next to the schools their kids went to, that and having cultural festivals during the month of Ramadan, they're false piety and "tolorance" would fly right out the window lol. Speaking of care for people, here's one for you, look up the Islamic center in Davenport, the place is huge. They also have muslim only housing. That scares the daylights out of my Christian friends, yet whenever I ask why the Christians don't do it it's the same old song and dance, screw the poor. Big suprise Islam is growing so fast here, who would have thought taking care of your own would help with loyalty to a religion. Another one, when Hurricane Harvey hit, it was a Mosque that was one of the first to open their doors to the poor, meanwhile good old Olsteen had to be shamed via facebook before he did anything.

    Hey i watch those movies too, think i watch more cartoons than anything. Good taste man. Movies like alien and predator just make me want to go to the gun range, that and make me want to buy HK firearms lol. Event horizon was good, you missed out. You could always try the newest IT, was much more like the book. Personal favorite, the wicker man. Sometimes wish we would do things like that, the ending sure opens up ideas for creative problem solving.

    Yeah, that i just will not tolorate, i cannot stand unruly children. Then again, i like men as well as women so i get to opt out of that extensive hassle. The irony, was baptised lutheran as a child, wish they still taught german culture and language like they used to. At least the Germanic beliefs are coming back, thats slowly filling the void left by Protestantisms decline.

    In a way I don't blame you, esp. if you clicked with the ward. Two newlyweds who probably liked kids? Yeah, big suprise you meshed with the religion. Read this ones somewhere, 3 classes of people join most flavors of the Christian religion, the hatched, matched and dispatched, the likes of me? Not so much.

    Moving Away from Accountability

    Way too complicated for me, and way too much dependence on a god for my taste. Here's my reply: Cattle die and kinsmen die, thyself too soon must die, but one thing never, I ween, will die; fair fame of one who has earned. Hávamál (The Speech of the High One) nam myoho renge kyo : Hail the wonderful Lotus sutra, the supreme teaching of the Buddha. One of the main (some would say main point) teachings is cause and affect, more you think about it, more it makes sense. 南無妙法蓮華經

    Moving Away from Accountability

    I'm a heathen and a Nichiren Buddhist at my core, i'll hide nothing here since I have no reason to. Not so much into finger pointing, I believe we all drive our own bus, it's our choice to stay on the road or drive it off a cliff, nothing more nothing less.

    Moving Away from Accountability

    Yep, most likely they're still garbage. Look at our divorce rate, our out of wedlock births, how Anglo families here treat each other, a lot it stems from a lack of accountability. Also, I've heard people say things like you've said before but they sure don't practice the teachings of their god. They judge the poor, consider themselves elect and that they really are better than those poorer than themselves. Funny, for an elect people they sure like to squawk and squeal when they get called out on their hypocrisy. Bottom line, I’ve been burned at a very bad time in my life and the whole sin being lifted bit, at least as it's practiced in the states reeks of hypocrisy. I admire those who take responsibility for their lives and quit whatever degenerate behavior they were participating in, those who don't I will distrust. At least I'm honest about it, on a whole most religious people I've met here stateside are not. Look at your religions numbers, like the rest of Christianity they’ve started to taper off, people can’t say one thing and do another and expect people to stick around, esp. nowadays when it’s so easy for someone’s career to be ruined; we’re not all entitled people from the suburbs with stable families and connections. I’ve known people ruined by religious people and yep, almost every time it happens it’s the same line, I’m not perfect just forgiven. All that, without a single thought towards the person they just ruined.
