So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.
I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will survive. I am not young, and I love life. But I should scorn to shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation. Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting.
And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.
One is often told that it is very wrong thing to attack religion, because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it.
I don’t make a living writing porn and watching it, but I do make money doing so. My last post was attacked because I simplistically wrote that I get paid watching porn and writing snippets of sex stories. So what? The guy’s response was an onslaught of religious quotes and so on, too many for me to even read.
The comment contains the following paragraphy:
All alleged sexual Child exploitation, or any alleged even sexual abuses are next as my father terms them as “unacceptable fantasies” tend to start in the mind, the person has temptations that he or she next falsely believe they have to act them out.. sadly it is undeniable that magazines and the internet do make such temptations by movies, pictures too readily available for anyone, adults included too but firstly all abuses, including sexual, or verbal, physical. bullying, slandering, are firstly unacceptable, even of all children, adults, all male and female, and even all animals now too. I have noted that any persons who can readily abuse a cat or dog will next too readily abuse a child, any person as well. Sadly these abuses and many other such as drugs, alcoholism, gambling, now have clearly all been increasing not decreasing
Okay…wait…what?! I get paid writing 100-word short stories about sex. That’s it. I don’t go around masturbating to sick perverted material.
Here’s another quote:
Every person in life, of any age has an real, big, continual enemy for a start. Regardless of whether you realize it, Satan has targeted you as a victim. Although unseen by the natural eye, this adversary still is not imaginary nor a mythological character. Satan, the Devil, is a real person… a spirit being, with intelligence, tangible characteristics, and whose incessant goal and ambition is to “steal, kill, and destroy” for the devil aggressively searches for weakness in our life, hoping to devour us with deception, temptation, or oppression. Somewhere in the shadows, he and his forces lurk, waiting, planning for the moment they will strike when you’re likely the weakest too. His method of operation is almost initially always “undercover.” but he will next use a real person to do his dirty work if he cannot succeed. Anyone denying his existence, or remaining ignorant of his reality, and his method of operations now, is rather also helping him, the devil in his goals towards us, goals of also closing all of our relationships, communications with God himself. Subtly, he even does manipulates hindering circumstances and inspires evil thoughts, false dreams, or all temptations, even disguising his activities behind the shroud of people or things around us.
I’ve said this on many forums, and I’ll say it again here: If there were a heaven and hell and I was sent to the latter, the first thing I’d do is go up to Satan and bitch slap that moron and tell him to get the fuck off my seat. No different that what Riley would do if he meant God:
All in all, I’m proud of my pornographic job. And if you don’t like it, then suck it.
