Research and Besmirch

In a cruel world, people seek to find an outlet. But this outlet that we speak of, having no social boundaries has evolved into a cesspool of irrational ideals and opinions that have nothing to do over fact and reason. This outlet that we speak of...is obviously Tumblr.

I am simply here to watch as these people destroy themselves and to give my own input to these events.

Well, so, this is actually somewhat true, historically speaking, I mean, except for the fact that the original Catholics were poc lol

Catholocism in the form it exists in now essentially borrows from a bunch of much older religions. Most Catholic (and consequently, Christian) holidays are actually Pagan. I’m not sure who was practicing that back in the day, they may all have been white. But this definitely also went on in Africa. I don’t have a lot of sources at the present moment, I am currently attending an online lecture, so I’m not about to dig them up. 

In regards to the OP that anon is referring to, I have no way of knowing whether or not they know anything about the true history of Catholicism, but there are definitely several cultures/religions that got ripped off when forming Catholic doctrine. The whole virgin birth thing kinda predates Jesus by a lot lol 

It is an interesting topic, and it became much easier to read about after I broke myself away from the church and concluded I was definitely an atheist. Dissonance can make this sort of information difficult to swallow, I suppose

But religion isn’t really a topic in which the term ‘poc’ should be associated with. Religion is a fluid idea that adapts to multiple cultures to survive in said cultures. Catholicism isn’t really culturally appropriating anything. All that ‘ripping off’ was done for the sake of crushing competition. Samhain is an example of that, along with other preexisting religious practices. The papacy implemented the popular elements of Samhain and other rituals and created their own day to fight back in order to gain more revenue(believers of the faith). If anything, religion is a market, and Catholicism is one of the top businesses existing in that field.

No, it shouldn’t, but in this particular case, they aren’t TECHNICALLY wrong. I doubt that person knew what they were talking about, but everyone gets lucky now and again.

How is it that this case is exempted from the particular restrictions? I don’t understand.

My mother complained about the MH17 plane crash and told me that the US should go bomb the ‘rebels’ responsible for the event…

I don’t understand how that’s a great idea because these are an extreme group of people we’re talking about. If history has taught us anything about extremists, it’s that they will continue to exist. No matter how much you spray Agent Orange, drop Hydrogen Bombs, or even go to the lengths of killing their leader, they never leave.

Also, bombs? Really? Mother, the US is not the World Police.

damn imminent, this wasn’t a smackdown. you straight up crushed the bullshit, and used a jerry soringer-esque font.

And the worst part is, she’s still claiming it was real because it “made it on the news.” As if fake stories never made it on the news before…

how disgusting is this woman

someone better not ever let her have children, because I wouldn’t put it past her to develop munchousen by proxy

I took one look at their blog and I was disgusted — proceed with caution, if you decide to look. I’m adding them to my blocklist, and I suggest everyone do the same!

Thank you for letting me know!

You should get to know me on any one of the forums I frequent. I am much nicer there. Because, on them, you can’t get away with being an idiot.

Because blocking someone that poses as a ‘threat’ to your values and beliefs is not only the safest option, but also the easiest way to ensure that the Echo Chamber Effect keeps on going(which in the long run, in my opinion, is very dangerous).

Save a sister: what every woman should know: please tell your straight friends about political Lesbianism NOW! 

Heartbreak is watching your friend continually going back to male abuse, no matter how you try to reason with her :(

You sound like a rotten friend: “you’re being abused unless you fuck me!” You clearly have no respect for your friend as a person or for her sexuality, so why don’t you stop trying to slither into her panties?  The only “abusive” one here sounds like you.  

These women sound an awful lot like the ” nice guys” they rail against.

I know, right? I feel like these women are so bitter that their crush is straight that they attempt to try to ‘correct’ them just to make themselves feel better. And gee, what does that remind me of? Some straight people who try to ‘correct’ gay people into being attracted to the opposite sex.

It’s time to drink up and search for complaints by SJW’s to entertain myself. 

You’re all welcome to grab a cup and entertain yourselves with the hypocrisy of SJW’s as well.

On what evidence? I don’t understand.

I’m pretty sure SJW’s don’t even care if they don’t make sense anymore.

This implies that SJW’s cared about making sense from the very start when all they have done is attempt to justify their feelings and suppress information for their own benefit.

Does it have to be a witch, or could it be anyone?

it has to be a witch—I will not back down on that.

So, this political system is driven by witch-on-witch cannibalism.

Well, this isn’t flawed at all. It’s not like most of the candidates will be more prominent psychopaths or anything.

The difference being humans and apes are both primates, while horses are not.

We’re all hypocrites, but I’d like to ignore that fact to enjoy watching a movie full of apes toting assault rifles while riding horses. 

Ah yes. 420 posts, and 42.0 followers. As the kids these days would proclaim as they enthuse in burning leaves with psychoactive abilities, Blaze it.

Today’s gender of the day was an exhilarating bike ride through the forest

I don’t understand. Is that supposed to be a substitute for one of those Anchorman jokes?

I have no idea, I’ve never seen Anchorman. I was just copying the format of the gender of the day blog. I went on an awesome bike ride today and I was just thinking about how when I’m flying through the trees like that gender is the furthest thing from my mind and i just kind of become the experience if that makes any sense. Also it just is an awesome feeling in general.

I must agree. Bike rides are exhilarating with the right seat mounted and the right path chosen. Alright, I get the gist of that now and I understand your pleasure.
