#2256470 Alejandro mangina at it again...

Posted by Nicks To The Colts on 12 June 2013 - 12:02 PM

so is RC having a drama meltdown or something.  i just checked over there and it seems like half the threads are just internal bitch fights.

 

interesting considering how that place always seemed very much up its own ass about having superior "football based trash talk" as opposed to the 4chan junior we supposedly have going on over here.

I wonder if the teboners are flooding the NE message boards?

 

this would be a great time to make a gimmick account on a patriots board

 

"hey guys what do you think about pulling tom brady out of the game for a while and letting The Golden Calf of Bristol play some snaps?  i'm a new patriots fan thanks to The Golden Calf of Bristol and i'd love to see that!"

#2254575 Cam Newton signing event at Belk (ATL) today

Posted by Nicks To The Colts on 10 June 2013 - 12:03 PM

I've seen HUNDREDS of photos of Cam taking pictures with fans outside of the sanctioned events. I don't think he really likes taking photos or signing autographs when he's with his lady, or doing stuff with his family. You'll get the same response with Steve Smith when he's with his family/kids. 

 

yeah i'll never understand the mentality that it's fine to just wander up to a celebrity when they're out with their family and trap them in an awkward situation.  those people get what's coming to them.

i didn't know how much longer i could go pretending that quarterbacks win games by themselves or that how many games mcnabb has "won" means anything




#2254106 McNabb thinks Griffin is overexposed

Posted by Nicks To The Colts on 09 June 2013 - 07:19 PM

lol even eagle fans hate mcnabb. I remember when posters here wanted to sign him. lmao

 

they can hate mcnabb all they want.

 

all i know is griffin hasn't done poo compared to him and he'd be wise to listen to anything the  man has to say.




#2253623 class valedictorian recites prayer during graduation ceremony, is summarily e...

Posted by Nicks To The Colts on 08 June 2013 - 06:55 PM

when i was in school these same people were trying to ban fantasy and "subversive" books from public school libraries and school reading lists.  You must realize that this isn't about the lord's prayer.  Nobody fuging cares about the lord's prayer.  This is about people saying they're oppressed when they lose the right to indoctrinate children.

 

this kind of bullshit isn't nearly as innocuous as you make it seem and if you've lived in the south for ANY amount of time that should be absurdly obvious to you.  Trust me, my skin is quite thick after growing up as an atheist in rural NC.

 

i sat at my high school graduation as one of maybe like four atheists in my entire graduating class.  i listened to every speech including several from the faculty that credited all things to the lord, the "voluntary" prayers to open and close the ceremony, the two christian songs performed by the honors chorus.  i didn't care all that much and i didn't feel threatened.  but as you mentioned, that isn't what it's about at all.

 

characterizing anybody who gives a poo about supreme court interpretations of an amendment that is supposed to protect us from religious tyranny as some fru fru pantywaist crybaby biting their nails over nothing is a lot easier than actually having to actually think about stuff.

 

yeah, everybody who has a problem with the government endorsing a religion is just "offended".  anybody who has a problem with gun control or warrantless wiretapping is also just "offended".

Boo hoo. This guy offended me from reading the Lords prayer. So no I'm going to piece together the argument many had about the mosque in NYC because its exactly the same.

Some of you have the skin thickness of an amobea.


Yes. Imagine if.....

 

"bawwwwww i'm being oppressed because i'm not allowed to use the government as an arm of the church and i'm stuck with a piddling overwhelming cultural hegemony bawwwwwwww"

i don't think anybody argued that freedom from all religious expression is a right, either.  when interacting with the public sphere, it kind of stands to reason that nobody should be any more free from religion than any other form of protected expression.

 

the difference is that the issue of a government (infinitely more powerful than a single person in and of itself) endorsing a religion absolutely comes in to play when we're talking about a state-sanctioned event.  it's a very simple, very specific matter: your personal relationship with your god(s) should run parallel to everyone else's personal relationship with the government.  quit trying to widen things out to "atheists want to be hidden from religion and are willing to trample others' rights to get what they want" because that's not what anybody worth taking seriously actually thinks.

 

if it's a state-sanctioned event, prayer/preaching/whatever shouldn't play in to it because that = either an explicit or implicit endorsement of religion which the USSC has ruled unconstitutional multiple times even in the event of a non-faculty/staff person performing the prayer as santa fe independent school district vs. doe's majority opinion lays out.  if you want to file a lawsuit and bust the USSC's chops on the first amendment implications of such a thing then you can certainly try.

 

my city, county, state, and federal taxes should not go toward the subsidization of somebody else's preaching.  that's the simplest way i can explain the problem from my point of view.  the government has no business collecting tithes from me.  a moment of silence where anybody can pray or not pray to whatever they want cuts it close enough.  and yes, i'd be opposed to a valedictorian getting onstage and saying that he has nobody to thank but himself for his success, god is for suckers, and christianity is the longest-running scam in human history.  leave religion out of it-what's so hard to swallow about that?

 

if disallowing a prayer to open a meeting is some kind of ban on religion, wouldn't it also stand to reason that somebody who stood up and started preaching in the middle of the event would be having their religious freedom oppressed if they were tossed out of the meeting?  i'd rather draw the line at "0" and have no prayer at the meeting than be forced to make a judgment call down the line at some point when a particular behavior is considered undesirable.  in that scenario, what right do you have to tell somebody who opens up a school board meeting with a fred phelps essay that they can't do it?  truly, is any government body or board that chooses not to open their meetings with a prayer also "banning religion"?

 

the school board was threatened with a lawsuit that they would probably lose and chose to end their opening prayer.  they would have gone to court over it if they felt that their actions passed constitutional muster as countless others have before.

i like the hypotheticals i see being brought up where people would totes be cool with opening up meetings with a moozlem prayer because "they'd be perfectly within their rights".  i think the fact that something like that is extremely unlikely to happen at a graduation or school board meeting in the bible belt plays in to it.  

 

i remember this board when the "ground zero mosque" stuff was going on so pardon me for taking anybody's wide open advocacy of freedom of religion with a grain of salt.
