Systems of Belief

While the AH was reading our very small, that usually contains nothing, small town newspaper he came across this.

This concerns me and I really don’t know what to say about it. I’m sure that I’m not alone in that, according to this pastor, I belong to several different religions.

What do you think about this?

    In general use, no: Religion is specifically associated with some sort of belief in the supernatural. So this entire argument is flawed from the opening line. On top of which, it’s carefully structured to create a false equivalency precisely in order to imply that there’s no good reason to believe or value one “set of beliefs” above any other; it specifically and deliberately denies the idea that things like evolution and concerns about overpopulation could be conclusions based on evidence, rather than “beliefs” based on nothing in particular.

    So basically, the whole thing is cesspool of mangled logic and deliberate misdirection.

      Yes, yes and yes! However his sheeple more than likely believe every word he has said and do not feel misdirected. That’s thought disturbs me.

    I guess I’m a pantheist now! Who knew?

    And all this time I thought socialism and liberalism were political ideologies. I thought going Green was an environmental movement. I think that this Baptist Church would find that many who are Green are also pro-life. Besides, I don’t think anyone – certainly not any that I’ve heard of – are advocating forced abortions or euthanasia. These religious fanatics are missing the point entirely on the pro-choice movement. Nobody is suggesting that abortions be mandated or that euthanasia be automatic. What is being suggested is that individuals have a choice in their own care and circumstance. Novel idea, eh?

    • theagnosticswife says:

      Yes a choice, that is merely all. Not forced abortions or euthanasia, I mean really? Then he suggests that since there are some who believe this why are they not first in line for said euthanasia.

    I do believe in euthanasia. I will also be the first to sign up if I ever end up with a disease that is killing me and there isn’t a cure. I don’t want my son and husband setting there watching me waste away in a bed. Or being put in a nursing home to be neglected and abused. I had an uncle in a coma for ten years stuck in a nursing home their neglect finally killed him. It was horrible I never want to live like that.
