#3138508 Good ole B of A

Posted by Semaj on 15 December 2014 - 10:43 PM

I saw a guy in a Pats jersey with the sign saying something about Cam not being able to drive. So, obviously, with a few silver bullets in us, my buddies and I swiftly reminded him of Cam DRIVING the football in, on and around the Pats on Monday night last year. He didn't have much to say.

Side note, this town, us, someone needs to do something to promote the home team. Even if it's just, "wear Panthers apparel and get 10% off" at bars or restaurants. I don't know, but it's a bad look to have transplants who come to our city and disrespect our team. What's the point in going to a Panthers game wearing a Steelers jersey? Shouldn't you be at home watching YOUR STEELERS!?

Ok, I'm worked up now. Geez, the Huddle's not good for my blood pressure.

As a kid who grew up in southern California which is much like Charlotte and full of annoying transplants, I will say that it can get better. I used to go watch my favorite baseball team, the angels. Whenever the Yankees and red sox came to town it was so damn annoying watching them take over the stadium. If they hit a home run it was like I was in fenway or Yankee Stadium. That has since changed. While there will always be annoying fans from those teams that come to games and are so damn disrespectful and act like it's a home game for their team, it is now clear that the Angels are the home team. Winning consistently will change that. Did u hear that Mr. Richardson? Winning more than once every 4 years and in actual back to back years can change the culture of the city and strengthen the fanbase.


#3132231 Are #70 and #68 the best rookie OG tandem in the NFL?

I would like to find something good about this season. If it's the two rookie guards, I will take it.

You having the idea isn't dangerous and it isn't at all my concern that you do.  It is my concern that the meme causes some (a formidable amount) of people to act in ways dangerous to themselves and more importantly others.  Whether they believe in some future reward, treat others with scorn and derision for worldly ways, or any other of the unlistable amounts of negative irrational side effects the idea causes in human social behavior this is dangerous at a societal level greater than a single tribe because of how it changes rational presuppositions.

 

A terrorist's god whether false or not simply has no bearing on the changes in the interpretation of reality brought about by a belief in an afterlife.  I am not sure how to respond to your brief weighing of Islam versus Christianity but for the purposes of my previous statement which you quoted I am not interested in the specific afterlife or religious belief itself.

Kral, I am sure you are a decent guy.  I am sure that we could sit down and enjoy a cold beer together and not kill eachother and actually enjoy the conversation.  You didn't personally attack me or use inflammatory language which I appreciate.  Now to respond to your post.

 

Glad that you agree that my belief in the Afterlife is of no danger to you or anyone else.  If you thought otherwise, then I would be wasting my time, because you would be crazy and I cant have a logical debate with a crazy man.  You did say however that it causes a formidable amount of people to act in ways dangerous to themselves and more importantly others.  When you say dangerous, what do you mean?  Do you mean possibly life threatening or threatening to their emotions?  Please specify.  If you did mean life threatening, then once again, I ask you to back that statement up with facts.  What you will find is that your Christian family, friends and neighbors are of no threat to your life.  There are no people being murdered by Christians for not converting.  No be-headings.  No school buses being blown apart and no Christian Army marching across the country and killing all those who don't believe as they do, like in IRAQ.  Now there is plenty of evidence of another religion, Islam, of doing those exact things even as I type these words.  You simply can not have a rational and fair debate if you have morally equated the 2 religions and grouped them together.  It is extremely offensive to me as a Christian to be lumped together with those committing horrendous crimes against humanity, that is shown on the news every single night.  

 

Now I did also, see that you said that they, I am assuming Christians, treat others with scorn and derision for worldly ways.  I agree with you.  Some Christians do just this.  This is where they go way wrong.   It is wrong for Christians to judge non believers for not following the bible and living their lives in that way.  What they should be doing is not judging but loving.  I am sorry for anytime that some arrogant Christian has done this to you.  It is wrong.  Let me give you an example of where I am and how I believe Christians should act.  I am in a nursing program.  One of my fellow classmates who I had become friends with is Gay.  After he told me the truth, I said to him, "You know that I can't tell you that I agree with your lifestyle, but I must tell you that you are a good young man and that I love you as the person that you are."  You see I don't have to agree with his life and tell him its ok, if I disagree with it.   I can be friends with him even if he  lives a lifestyle that I disagree with.  However, I do have a calling and responsibility to show love to him, because he deserves that.  If God loves him, which he does, then it is my responsibility to love him as well. Christians who do otherwise are doing a greater wrong than the ones they are pointing fingers at.

 

In conclusion, the CHRISTIAN afterlife meme is not dangerous.  It gives hope to millions and millions of people world wide and is the reason that so many Christians are willing to risk their lives on mission trips that bring peace, hope and comfort to those around the world who have suffered terrible calamities such as the Haiti earthquake and the 2004 Tsunami in Thailand.  

 

Anyways, not much more to say other than Go Cam! Go Panthers!

No Idea.

Nope.

Nope.

Why?

Just responding to your quote that we should actively work against it. Sir, there is nothing dangerous about my belief in the afterlife. It actually brings peace to me and many other Christian believers versus believing that we will just stop existing and become dust. One of the rewards for people like myself, is that someday we will actually be reunited in Heaven with our loved ones, like my sweet little grandmother who passed away in 1998. My beliefs shouldn't be dangerous to you or anyone else. I am not standing by a school bus in Israel with a bomb on my back and waiting to make Allah proud and receive my 70 virgins. They, those terrorists follow a false God. A God that has created a culture and worship of death and that has been sweeping across the earth for centuries. It has never changed. It has always been violent and they do it in their God's name. I say their God's name, because it is not the same God that they follow. Despite the popular moral equivalency belief that the God and afterlife of Muslims is the God and afterlife of Christians, it's just not true. The work that I have done in God's name has been to give hope and share God's love with the heartbroken in my community and also on mission trips to countries like Japan. The Christian afterlife is simply not a danger to you or anyone else.

This is also why the afterlife meme is dangerous and we should actively work against its spread in our society.

And may I ask? How would you like to go about actively working against its spread in society? Smh. So in your book, the only people who have the right to express what they believe, are those who agree with you. Everyone else should just shut up. I believe in Heaven and hell and nothing that any atheist says is ever going to change that.

Ha! The Quran would never call Jewish people and Christians all children of Allah. Or even mention Jesus let's say 72 times

Just to note all three commit horrible crimes against each other. I just know more about Islam from a former career and I like banging Persian women

I disagree. To equate modern day Christianity with Islam is not accurate or fair and actually offensive. The evidence of Christian missionaries versus Muslim terrorists shows a clear difference at this time. Natural disaster and man made disasters occur and Christians will respond on a large scale even in Muslim nations. The Muslim faith has mostly brought war and violence and murder to innocent men, women and children of all races and creeds, even their own. Just watch the news. It's not even debatable. The moral equivalency is entirely unjustified and unfair to Christians. That being said, of course there are some peaceful Muslims and I encourage everyone to give them an opportunity to show their true character before judging them. In addition, please go find modern day evidence of all these horrible crimes that Christians are committing worldwide in 2014. I don't hear of Christians beheading Muslims for refusing to convert. Thankfully you will be looking for a LONG TIME. That being said, this Christian man cares about everyone, even those that disagree with him such as Atheists and Muslims. Just don't morally equate the religions. That's not fair or accurate. Flame away, but flame away with facts and not name calling or ignorance. I presented a strong case and have backed it up. I have challenged you to find all the true and valid occurrences of Christians persecuting and murdering other faiths in 2014. Don't bring up the inquisition from hundreds of years ago.

As a guy sitting in the Hampton Inn at Duke awaiting treatment for prostate cancer I can easily tell you that what Cam said was spot on. Don't take a damn thing in life for granted.

Prayers for you brother. Get well quickly.

Once again I will say, wth is wrong with people? This is a fine young man who always tries his best to do things right. He is a Christian and has a strong faith in God. Very well spoken post on Facebook. He is full of humanity and I believe cares about others and we are so lucky to have him as our qb. Let's sign this young man for the long term this off season. Get healed up Cam.


#3129031 I have officially lost all hope in my fellow Charlotteans

Posted by Semaj on 10 December 2014 - 03:28 PM

See tweet below from 610 WFNZ producer. Are people really this fuging pathetic and stupid in this town? Or is Charlotte really that full of transplant haters and bandwagon shitbag morons? God almighty there are some flat out pathetic mother f*ckers breathing the same air I'm breathing in this town.

@TBoneWFNZ: Off air call: "Cam shouldn't of been joyriding around town while DA was in the film room" I have no words.

Rivera said today that he was on his way in to watch tape and to rehab. Some people are just so dumb. Cam could save 20 kids from a burning school bus and some people would still find something to criticize him for. SMH. The man could have died yesterday, that was a bad accident and they tweet $hit like that.

Thank you sir. Hope your team can win it all if our doesn't. Good people up there in Wisconsin. God bless.

From the falcons board. Post of the day "Saints probably put out an off the field bountygate. Glad he was in his monster truck." LOL. Yeah their dislike of the classless Saints organization is as great as mine.


#3127792 Post Saints fans tweets here....

Posted by Semaj on 09 December 2014 - 06:45 PM

Seriously where does all the irrational hate and 30 year old men acting like 7 year olds come from? You would think that Cam had a violent criminal record? For the life of me, I don't understand. These people are crazy. Cam is a good guy and has always done charity. He was raised in a Christian home and has been nothing short of a role model in the NFL. It just pisses me off.


#3126956 Cam Involved in serious car wreck, reportedly uninjured

Posted by Semaj on 09 December 2014 - 01:44 PM

Yup. Saints fans already making jokes. http://saintsreport....ml#.VIc-Hcso7qA

I can't stand that fanbase. They speak as if he has committed horrendous crimes and deserves to be injured or even killed. Shame on you Saints fans. You act like your 7 years old and not part of the human family. You and your city are a disgrace to the entire NFL.


#3126906 Cam Involved in serious car wreck, reportedly uninjured

Posted by Semaj on 09 December 2014 - 01:36 PM

Praying for all those involved in this accident. Life is bigger than football and how anybody can hate this smiling young man for no good reason other than pay for play or laptop or he beat my favorite SEC team shows some complete lack of humanity and I feel sorry for them. Get well Cam.


#3125158 Rivera 12-8-14 Presser

I hope Rivera isn't contemplating putting Silatolu back in the starting lineup once he gets healthy.

Of course he is
