I watched a Russell Brand comedy show the other day. It was very funny. The man is very intelligent. He is also a sexual deviant.
No, I'm not talking about someone who chooses to participate in sexual activity in a way that is not "normal" without harming anyone. He made jokes about having sex with multiple women saying, "you're pregnant, you're pregnant, you're pregnant", this is an irresponsible disregard for the natural function of sex, for women, and for human life.
He seems to be almost a pure hedonist. I don't know that I'd go so far as to lump him into the Alistair Crowley "Do what thou wilt" crowd, because he does seem to be somewhat empathetic towards others, however his disregard for life and self control with regards to sex leads me to believe that he does not really have all that solid of a foundation in the philosophy of liberty.
I think he is very funny, sometimes profound, but I won't be promoting him as a spokesman for Liberty.
Fred Phelps didn't beat his kids mercilessly over their grades to get them into seminaries. It was always about law school. And today his kids are lawyers.
And WBC does things that purposely provoke people into feeling an overwhelming urge to shut them up by any means. And when those people are governments, they strike pay dirt in being able to threaten civil rights law suits.
They are grifters. The whole "church" thing is nothing but a cover to give their civil rights suits more religious freedom flair.
And they are very, very rich. There's no telling how much they've raked in from out of court settlements alone.
god helps those who help themselves?
controlled. They are actors who twist and pervert the Word of God. They are out there to make true believers in Jesus Christ look stupid and hateful and to give the government a 'good reason' to take away freedom of speech.
Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html
you'd think until you realize that there are f*ckin crazy people out there, some of which literally wish you were dead.
Guys. People. Don't be fooled. Russell is a pimp for anything. Right now you're seeing him in a lot of posts because he is promoting a new film. Once the marketing dollars have run out and the film has had its run you won't hear a squeak from him.
He's one of those that will take money from any side.
Personally what you do in your bedroom is your own thing. Keep it to yourself as I would keep my personal life to myself and I'm not gay.
If you choose to follow a religion you are free to do so and I won't criticize you for it. I will defend you're freedom to practice whatever your religion is so long as you don't harm another. I may not agree with your religion or practice it and I may not even like you personally but we don't all have to be friends anyway.
Russels audience is the sheeple. They will follow any which way the crowd will go. They're the 'too far gone' ones. Turn off the tv and Russel is pretty much non exsistsnt. In fact do yourself a favor and throw out the tv completely. His whole show is exactly that - a show. It's all staged, acted out for entertainment. It's fake. The guests might even be fake. It's a kabuki dance. It's to turn the masses into agreeable sheep.
See it for what it is. Getting two actors as guests, a blind audience and a man who will do anything his masters tell him.
He will kiss your libertarian ass if he gets to influence you.
Go out in the real world, make some good friends and make yourself a life. He's just appealing to a large niche audience and they're lapping it up.
he is a clueless idiot.
Pandas can't drive.
Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Psalms 5:1-5 (KJV)
19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Psalms 139:19-22 (KJV)
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Romans 1:26-28 (KJV)
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Cor 6:9-10 (KJV)
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Jude 1:7 (KJV)
Wait for it...
'Judas hung himself from a tree.'
'Go Ye therefore, and do likewise.'
You need to understand that quoting ther Bible over here on this POLITICAL website will get all kinds of responses.
I am actually a believer, and I find that the whole 'Westborough Baptist Church' (ALL TWO OF THEM) are, in reality, a planted message of diversion from the takeover of this nation by the NWO. OBFUSCATION and DISTRACTION are the modus opperandi, and Russell is correct on several points. You see, if you actually LISTENED, you would see that they condemn BILLY GRAHAM to HELL, as well.
THAT'S IT, boy! COMPATMENTALIZE the real issues into SUBSETS, and WORK on people's 'religious affiliations', to get them to go to WAR with EACH OTHER!
Ah, YES, you are doing the work of the master that sent you!
Read the context of all verses. You'll get the idea.
Adultery is sin: So I man should have sex with his woman, anything else is sin.

getting a dressing down for acting like a creep.
I'll bet these same "Christians" support their government killing as many Arabs as possible with all the wars and occupations.
Sunday morning christians I call them.
The hypocrisy is one reason I don't participate much in organized religion anymore.
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
They do not support the wars and occupations.
Actually, the 'religious right' do EXACTLY that!
OUR COUNTRY, RIGHT OR WRONG! if it's WRONG, then, well, just IGNORE IT, and talk about 'reaching the World' by 'praying the problem away' (and, also, making a 'genorous contribution')! The 'warriors' are universally PRAISED as they slaughter people in foreign lands, and the ISREAL, RIGHT OR WRONG' crap is constantly SPEWED OUT of their hypocritical mouths, like CANDY to the sheeple.
THEY do EXACTLY the thing which you falsely claim that they 'DO NOT'.
I have not heard ONE SINGLE 'religious right leader' in THIS nation decry the unlawful and illegal and murderous actions by THEIR candidates (Bush, Bush, Reagan, Nixon, Romney, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Kissinger). NO, NOT ONCE, EVER!
ACTUALLY, you are MISTAKEN.
Turn it up!
DEEP BLACK. Interesting handle.
OPS, perhaps, dude?
"They" do not support the wars, I was talking about the Westboro Baptist Church. Not the "religious right". I think you misunderstood me. I don't know if he counts as part of the religious right, but Pastor Chuck Baldwin has been against the wars. He was a former leader of the moral majority
or whatever you want to call it is a downer imo.
is a admitted liberal who begged his audience to elect obama to "save the world" and came out against gun rights because of sandy hook the other day on piers morgan so the che look fits. he had a libertarian moment the other day on msnbc so a lot of folks think he's with the freedom movement. he isn't by a long shot, but he has supported snowden and manning like a number of progressives have, and that is a good thing.
i don't see how he schooled anyone. the westboro dudes certainly held their own and maybe even came out on top when you consider it was brand's audience. bringing others out at the end made it look like brand needed even more backup
It's hilarious to me how people can claim to know what happens after we die...
No body knows but if I had to guess we probably go to the same place we were before we were born... Nothingness.
When one seeks truth (real truth), the first issue is the definition of a CORRECT QUESTION.
NO, it's NOT 'Heaven "or" Hell'.
It IS 'HEAVEN AND HELL', co-existing at the same time in the same space.
It's like, the current space occupied by you and all of us, in THIS time.
it's hard to explain in so many words, and I prefer to take the place of ROCK WARRIOR:
Last song, second side, Black Sabbath, 'Heaven And Hell'.
There is an afterlife...and the choices we make as free spirits determine our so-called 'lot'.
Even Ronnie James Dio, an avowed homosexual, and 'agnostic', knew, and sang passionately about this subject, as the lead singer of Black sabbath at this time, way back in about 1983 or so.
it's a gift from god to all the sinners he created. end of story ;)
comfort for the masses....My response was ... the same statement could be made of Opium.
... and what is wrong with that as long as you don't harm another? Why deny or criticize another for seeking comfort, well-being... or spirituality, or whatever it is?
I don't understand all the arguments on the DP regarding the existence of god (God) the bible, religion, the "truth".
Believe what you believe and leave it alone. If you want to respectfully share, great. But no one is going to change their mind on the subject. Its like two kids in a sand box saying "yes you are, no I'm not".
"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo
Could you point me to the verse describing the uncertainty principle?
Just kidding! I was being sarcastic. I don't believe there is anything divine/special about the bible
"it was written by the holy spirit" no it wasn't it was written by men who were supposedly inspired by god. You know what we call those people nowadays? Schizophrenic.
Jury Nullification is a power of the last resort against tyranny.
In my ......opinion?
What the fudge does the 'A' stand for, in 'IMAO'?
It USED to be modified like this: "IMHO" (in my HUMBLE opinion).
Geese, the TWITTER FREAKS went and changed it AGAIN!
Back when I moved to my State of Residence, they used to call the pot-smoking hippie communal people 'FREAKS'.
in the spirit of 'peace, love, and understanding', will ONE of you tell me what the frigging 'A' stands for?
