The implication that you can't be Christian and Libertarian at the same timeSubmitted by BurningsiriusΩ™ on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 17:22
I love Adam, but this is flat wrong. Some people like me realize they been worshiping the US like an idol complete with a totem pole (the flag) and all. I have redoubled my efforts toward worshiping God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit alone. I like the sentiment of trying to include everyone, but none of those atheists are going to join us. They are a bunch of control freaks many whom are the most bigoted people out there. They are like the Pharisees of the 2nd Temple Era by throwing their stones being holier than thou all the while 'reason and progress' ended up killing millions of Chinese and Russians, but lets not talk about that. Also, the commies in Russia killed off all the males in the Orthodox Church in their attempt to destroy the Russian Orthodox priesthood. Luckily, the ladies kept the faith.
Also, thanks for alienating Christians who would might be drawn to Paul. If I watched this before my conversion to liberty, I would of dismissed Paul as an option to be quite honest because Adam is a huge member of the movement. (The Liberty documentary helped push me toward Paul) This is not to peeve of atheists who are supporting Paul. This is coming from a Christian supporter of Paul. It would be akin to saying only Christians can be Ron Paul supporters or anarcho-capitalist/libertarians/supporters of liberty. Obviously, that is a logical fallacy.
Update: Someone said I came off too hard. Let me say that anyone who says I cannot practice my religion in public or prevents me from evangelizing is a control freak. This is what the organizers of the Reason Rally want. They want to put religion in a tiny box and tucked away where no one hears or discusses it. Those are the people I am talking about. If you are an atheist and a supporter of the first amendment, you are not in this group so do not be insulted.
Sorry if I sounded offensive.
I love my atheist liberty brothers. My best friend is an atheist supporter of Paul. Keep up the good work guys.
"We all have our delusions"
(Update initially posted elsewhere I am sorry for this. I should of put it here)
An update to my earlier post about how Adam believes you cannot be Christian and libertarian at the same time. Also, someone said that Adam was using the 'Socratic Method' to make the Reason Rally people look bad. He was bashing the faithful this entire time! Imagine that. In the end, Adam was the only person who looks bad after all of this.
I follow a scam great. Don't donate to Adam because donating to a charity is a scam. I am sorry to see him go through this. Watch the video for more evidence, and I think someone owes me an apology.
I am officially a 2nd class liberty lover as I am a religious man. Let me go drown in my delusions.
Okay so the Adam gets into the gay marriage thing and how slavery is bad. Time for some education. Biblical slavery happened for two reasons. First, you were a prisoner of war. This happened because the aggressor (if the defender won) had to pay for all the collateral damage the war caused. Second you were in debt (we are all debt slaves currently under the Federal Reserve System btw). This is a legit way of getting rid of your debts is to sell yourself into servitude. I mean for being an 'anarcho-capitalist' or leaning like Kokesh (aka intellectually being a child and taking pot shots at ancient cultures and their arbitration systems) there are many contracts that you could perform to get rid of your debts and servitude is one of them. So, Adam has proven himself the intellectual equal of Rachel Maddow about LOL SLAVERY. (Think the Bob Murphy vid)
In the Old Testament, there were also laws dealing with the treatment of slaves (you could not work them if they were injured. Treat them as you would treat yourself, ext the comments are riddled with them). Adam of course ignores that and says Christians support racist slavery (slavery by birth rather than chosen servitude due to bad decisions you made). Debt slavery was never passed onto the next generation. Thomas Jefferson's quote about each generation has to pay its own debts did not come out of thin air. After this, I had to unsubscribe. I agree with Tom Woods about getting the State out of marriage. Let the Churches or whatever you subscribe to deal with it. I can't take much more of this. He came on here declaring I was trying to drive wedges. Well Adam, no you are. I know you read the DP. Idk what dope you have been smoking, but you are destroying yourself. Maybe if this eventually happens, it will be for the best, and that is unfortunate.
From a friend:
Kokesh is moron and a hypocrite. He'll talk about how you can't use the ecological fallacy on libertarians, then use it on Christians. I'm sure if you asked him he'd go all Nixon and be like "When I do it, it's not a fallacy!"
I really wish my last update was the LAST one. I am kind of getting tired of being called an idiot / irrational/ Santa Clause Worshiping/ Sun Worshiping / astrologer / pagan / divider / ext. Then when I tell the truth about Christian principles, I am the bad guy for dispelling internet myths of Christianity. Amazing! Well Adam is back at it again, this time he says in no uncertain terms Christianity is incompatible with Libertarianism. I was alerted by a friend while enjoying the Resurrection of our Lord with my family. Loving your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18) is definitely not the Non-Aggression Principle.
Note: I was accused for libel because of my post's title. I did not add the quotations (which is where the accusation stemmed from), but I simply wanted to see a debate about the issue and boy did I. Good thing Kokesh is now explicit about his loathing of Christians in the ideologically pure movement of the Revolution. We are a religion of empire after all even though we invented Just War doctrine, ext. (well it was always invented but merely penned articulately) Also, I am a Government plant or something.
Well guys, looks like I am packing up my bags. It was nice knowing you all. Some atheists who have commented (NOT ALL) here want me purged from the movement (well all Christians in general). We are simply not rational enough. For all those atheists who support religious liberties, I thank you. I know it is hard supporting us just as it would be hard for me to support you (peer pressure mostly), but we support each other on principle which is very important because once I go down you will go down very shortly. I realize that now when I made my conversion over to liberty that other points of view must be made open and have equal platforms to each other.
Time for me to travel to the tiny corner of dunce land (or idiot-topia idk which one to chose) where us religious people reside. Cya later.
