How the church felt about the Boston bombings

*(before I get started, I apologize in advance for grammatical errors I have dyslexia I catch what I can)

 

The Westboro Baptist Church a group of Christian extremist infamous for protesting funerals have tweeted they will protest the funerals of the two killed in the Louisiana movie theater shootings this past week, their message (and I will purposely not include the hashtag is “God sent the shooter”. I am almost at lost for words and at the same time not surprised this country was built by people trying to escape religious belief, taken from the hands of people too trusting and has become more radical with each generation. As A child I was baptized Catholic I’ve heard it said once your baptized catholic  you are always that no matter how far you stray. Well Catholicism has its issues very public issues. And growing up with dyslexia I have to be honest I didn’t get through too many books especially those that weren’t required for a grade so I have never fully read the bible I cannot quote you a psalm or tell you a scripture you should read when your feeling a certain way. Partly because the words are so tiny in most and there are just so many (words) all related to different stories it’s too much for me to keep stored let alone when the words start to jumble or it’s written in old English. And I bring that up to say it causes me to approach everything with a grain of salt and a scoop of common sense, I believe in a higher power only because I think we need to believe in something especially when times get tough. But you can’t just tell me it was written in this book many years ago then tell me it can be interpreted differently but also say these are rules. And I say this about the bible and the constitution. It scares me these rules made before the advancement of population, of technology, and society are rules we follow to the T unless you can afford to bend them to your needs. yet no one realizes we have a problem guess I just think to much.

Personally I don’t care what you practice, who you follow, who you love, and what you believe, that’s your American freedom. But how evil and sick must you be to protest at a funeral? Where do you find that hate? As an adult when did you decide there are some things you just won’t question yet you can’t explain? Are you higher in God then I am because you go to church everyday so you don’t sin?  A dangerous way to live.  This church finds the hate inside to come to you at your weakest most vulnerable point and express their freedom of speech and right to gather as you lay a loved one hopefully innocent of major offenses to rest this group shows up to berate you to spit on your cause for their beliefs  and it’s no crime that is what worries me about this country.

So Donald Trump wants to run on the republican ticket and what scares me about that is not that he will win but he represents what republicans really think about you. No matter how ridiculous you believe his statements are he’s saying upfront what many will say in private because it could mean a bigger challenge for votes, years ago he demanded Barack’s birth certificate some old lady at a republican rally stood up and said that Barack Obama is an Arab, funny to me how she thinks the application for the highest job in the nation would have missed that in a background check. 

Religion won’t save you hide behind it if you want. It sickens me to see these things, to feel like I am the only one thinking rationally, to have to say that black lives matter, Donald Trump is outrageous, the confederate flag of a lost battle shouldn’t be flown anywhere except private property and Caitlyn Jenner is given way to much credit to not even be the first nor the most convincing to have made the change. I don’t go to church on Sunday heck I can’t even tell you the last time I stepped inside the sacred building and I’m not sure if that is because dyslexia affects my short-term memory dates and times or it just wasn’t that memorable an experience a catholic in a Christian church with people full of the Holy Ghost the details I have but dates and times just not that memorable. Again I do believe and I let that freedom of religion guide my choices along with common sense not depict my life and how I view you. -Vonte

According to the Dr. Schlessinger Because it’s on HBO, it’s okay to say nigger.

American talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger (Itailian, Jewish)is a socially conservative commentator and author. Her call-in radio program occasionally features short monologues on social and political topics, but is mostly made up of her responses to callers’ requests for personal advice. Schlessinger’s answers have been variously characterized as direct, wise, to-the-point, abrupt and cruel. Her website says that her show “preaches, teaches, and nags about morals, values and ethics.”

On the August 10th show she had a call that lead to the subject of blacks and race relations. So while I calm my nigga ass down and get my thoughts together, here are some excerpts from the show.

“CALLER: OK. Last night — good example — we had a neighbor come over, and this neighbor — when every time he comes over, it’s always a black comment. It’s, “Oh, well, how do you black people like doing this?” And, “Do black people really like doing that?” And for a long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it —
SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist.
CALLER: Well, the stereotype —
SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist. No, I think that —
CALLER: [unintelligible]
SCHLESSINGER: No, no, no. I think that’s — well, listen, without giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply ’cause he was half-black. Didn’t matter what he was gonna do in office, it was a black thing. You gotta know that. That’s not a surprise. Not everything that somebody says — we had friends over the other day; we got about 35 people here — the guys who were gonna start playing basketball. I was going to go out and play basketball. My bodyguard and my dear friend is a black man. And I said, “White men can’t jump; I want you on my team.” That was racist? That was funny.
CALLER: How about the N-word? So, the N-word’s been thrown around —
SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger”.

Then she goes on to say

“SCHLESSINGER: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can’t have this argument. You know what? If you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race. If you’re going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, “OK, what do blacks think? What do whites think? What do Jews think? What do Catholics think?” Of course there isn’t a one-think per se. But in general there’s “think.”

And what I just heard from Jade is a lot of what I hear from black-think — and it’s really distressing [sic] and disturbing. And to put it in its context, she said the N-word, and I said, on HBO, listening to black comics, you hear “nigger, nigger, nigger.” I didn’t call anybody a nigger. Nice try, Jade. Actually, sucky tryNeed a sense of humor, sense of humor — and answer the question. When somebody says, “What do blacks think?” say, “This is what I think. This is what I read that if you take a poll the majority of blacks think this.” Answer the question and discuss the issue. It’s like we can’t discuss anything without saying there’s -isms?We have to be able to discuss these things. We’re people — goodness gracious me. Ah — hypersensitivity, OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don’t get it. Yes, I do. It’s all about power. I do get it. It’s all about power and that’s sad because what should be in power is not power or righteousness to do good — that should be the greatest power”.

Now this might divide the room, but evidently not everyone is so coi.  So fine,  you hear “nigger, nigger, nigger” on HBO and when watching black comedians (watched Chris Rocks Never Scared and took it literally) I watch Bad Girls Club and white female comedians,  they say. bitch, bitch, bitch, and I’ve also heard Cunt. So let’s say this, call into Dr. Laura’s show and without using any foul words say, “hey old bitch, you’re a rotten bitch, and wow you are such and evil cunt. Why should it matter they say it why can’t I? I shouldn’t be censored or cut off, because that would just be the old doctor being  a hypersensitive cunt.

The word Nigger, I’m not going to defend it, nor the black people who say it (including me once in a while) fine it’s a dirty word along with all the other Americans spew on a daily basis, but note the differences please before you speak up, black people say nigga, there’s no (er) regardless of the content of the sentence it has always been that when another race says nigger it is meant to offend and be hurtful, possibly hateful, and that is the problem. Should it be used at all? No never should have been created along with the other words that aren’t acceptable every where you go. Truth of the matter is that the word is there, and just like I can’t walk into a court room and say f-off, you nor any other race besides black can’t walk around and say nigger.

My last point to make to the old cunt doctor, is that it always amazes me how white people seem to feel that because one black person has a prestigious title all of the black people out there are fine,  (no disrespect to our President Barack Obama in any way) I voted for Barack because I wanted someone with a plan that wasn’t and old white man, with old world views. I voted for Barack because never before during a speech have I felt that a politician was speaking to me, not at me, Barack looked America in the eyes and answered his questions. Before then Senator Obama really started to speak up and be heard, my vote was with Senator Hilary Clinton if she hadn’t dropped out I would have taken that all the way to the voting booth. Because no matter what you felt, you could not deny America needed a change, and the Republicans were not laying down plans that seemed to represent a change (to in my view) is the average persons problem, (I did not see anything that Joe the plumber and I had in common) In fact I think he is a dick (comics say that too).  I am ever so grateful that in my lifetime I saw a well-educated, whole-hearted man, be elected the 44th President, but you best believe that I didn’t think people would now stop looking at me funny because I’m young, black and male, you best believe that I wasn’t running around thinking things were just going to be easier for me, and that I am now invincible for at least four years. Get over yourself you old cunt, bitch, apology not excepted your old enough to have participated in the marches, and should have known better. -Vonte
