ok religious discrimination rant time

beautyragdoll:

It is never ok to say that God is santa clause for adults. Just do not even go there.

It is OK to say that. The only thing that’s not OK, is your support of censorship and oppression. You can’t tell me what to say and what I’m allowed to say. Santa Claus is a superstitious belief that issues rewards or denial of rewards in response to good behavior. It’s a superstition taught to children. How is that not exactly like God?

I completely understand and respect that not everyone has the same religious beliefs or any at all, but why would you phrase it in that way.

To show you that your belief system is based on a series of logical flaws and environmental conditioning.

That is what you call religious discrimination whether you think it or not.

No, discrimination prevents an individual from equality in either society or the law. If I said Christians couldn’t eat at my restaurant or black people can’t play on the playground or homosexuality should be a crime, that’s discrimination. Telling you your ideas are wrong isn’t discrimination. If it were, there would be no truth. I bet you call your math teacher discriminatory for disagreeing when your answers are wrong. There is an objective truth and I assert your belief about god isn’t part of it. That’s not about discrimination. That’s about challenging indoctrination.

If something similar was said about any other religion then there would be uproars, but because it’s about christianity it’s fine to say what you please.

Bullshit! I say the same thing about the phoney baloney religions of Islam, Scientology, Mormonism, New Age weirdos, people who believe in karma, ancient greek, ancient egyptian mythology, gozer worshipers, Orthodox Jews, Voodoo and other island religions, witch-burning snake-juggling faith healers, living gods, etc, etc, etc. What do you think makes your ancient, unjustified belief more accurate than any other religious belief? What makes it more real than Zeus or Allah or Santa Claus?

I’m proud to call myself a Catholic and a believer in God, so i don’t really value it when people are offensive towards my religion.

You don’t value it? Does this sentence have meaning?

But something about that comment really really annoyed me.

Maybe it’s how accurate it is?

The Post has uncovered an evil, stealthy assault on  Christmas and it’s coming from a place you’d least expect it — the YMCA!  Yes, Manhattan’s McBurney Y is snubbing Santa Claus for Frosty the Snowman at this year’s kids luncheon.
Today in an “EXCLUSIVE,” New York’s favorite litter box liner attacks the “politically correct West Village YMCA” on 14th Street for  replacing a fat white man in a red suit with a fat white man in a  snowman suit. What’s the lefty Y’s excuse? “We realized that change is  sometimes good, and that Frosty is a great winter character who would  appeal to a broader number of kids,” according to the McBurney Y’s  executive director, John Rappaport. What a… non-controversy.
But the Post also spoke with the Catholic League’s Bill  Donohue, who’s pretty pissed off: “Christmas is not about Jack Frost;  it’s not about snowmen. We’re not talking about some secular  organization that has no religious roots. If they can’t celebrate  Christmas, then they should check out. What a bunch of cowards.” Yes,  grown men are angry that Santa Claus has been replaced at a community  center by an equally fictional character.
