#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.

Saints D in 2010 had a turnover margin of -6 and ranked 18th in sacks. Don't just make stuff up :(

 

.

Gregg Williams might agree, but it wouldn't be the first time he spoke from his ass. The year he finally won it all he did so with a front 7 that I suspect you would never (not ever) refer to as "strong" unless it suited your current argument. They were a serviceable unit that he made use of by sending them blitzing en masse with the confidence one has by possessing in their arsenal an absolute apex predator ballhawk in the secondary. RR is of the same coaching tree as GW. I'm not about to tell you that KV is the next Darren Sharper or anything, but the coaches like that they see and I look forward to seeing him play.

 

 

The Panthers have a dynamic offense. The Saints fielded one of the worst defensive units in history, statistically speaking. I dunno if I'm ready to throw the baby out with the bath water there. I understand you seeing it differently, though, being drunk with power over a 7-9 2nd place finish tiebreaker and all. It's not like you're as bad as Falcons fans, firing their AKs in the air over b2b winning seasons. I'm sure that if that day ever comes for Panthers fans they will handle it with much more class.

 

18 is pretty close to 16 imho.  do you think i said "generally around" because i thought it sounded cool

 

also the saints were third in the league in INTs on offense in 2010 which screwed their turnover diff. up.  brees has the second most pass attempts in the entire league that year so turnover diff. doesn't exactly tell us everything.

 

if we're going that direction though the 2009 world champion saints had the second most turnovers on defense in the NFL and the third highest diff. (+11) in the league that year.  that team led the league in takeaways with 2.5/game.  for comparison brees was 27th in INTs and 15th in ATT.

 

tldr get out of my face

 

 

 

edit:

 

 

 

I understand you seeing it differently, though, being drunk

 

yes

edwards was playing injured for several games after the beating he took against michigan and he basically got skullfuged by LSU the next season.  he was never afraid of contact in college and would drop his shoulder to grind out extra yards like a running back.

 

of course the NFL is on its own level and it does seem like he plays scared now.

We hoisted a Lombardi with the 25th ranked defense in 2009 while our 4th ranked defense in 2010 collectively whiffed on Beast Mode in the wild card round. We don't need to build anything but a lead. What is this, 1985?

 

there was like a 2 point/game difference between the 2009 and 2010 saints defenses.  they were both good teams that forced a poo ton of turnovers and were generally around the top half of the league in sacks.  one just happened to have a fluky once in a decade loss in the playoffs.

 

giving up yards doesn't matter a lot anymore and i'm not advocating some kind of luddite bullshit where the objective is to win every game 13-10.  what's important in the NFL now, especially with teams like the saints around, is pressuring the quarterback and forcing turnovers.  it's much easier to get there with a strong front 7.  gregg williams would probably agree.

 

also the panthers beat the saints after trailing by double digits lol

oh wow, a person with very few posts coming to pat's defense who happens to post with a similar style and diction.

 

tuggle2day's account was also created around the same time pat was run off the boards last year and was barely active until just now.  how unusual!




#2250763 Which NFL players you hate?

Posted by Nicks To The Colts on 05 June 2013 - 07:18 AM

Scott Futica (cheap shot artist that tried to hurt Smitty)

 

Do any of you recall that game where he tried to take out Smitty.  Dove at his knee well away from the play?  The he was on the safety committee (two face bastard)
