The Official Innocent Bystanders STFU Post January 13, 2010

Posted by BrewFan in News.

I’m not gonna link the vid but if you read Drudge you know Pat Robertson is talking out of his ass again. This made me think, “Pat Robertson, STFU”. In the comments I invite you to extend a gracious invitation to STFU to the person who is currently rubbing you the wrong way. To save you time “Michael, STFU” is assumed.

This Means You, Pat!

sigh. I could add one, but it wouldn’t be as heartfelt.

18. Russ from Winterset - January 14, 2010

STFU, procrastinator.

Celebrities and lefty politicians who will not go without a single earthly luxury, but who want me to turn my heat down and wear a parka indoors in Winter:


25. Neo - January 14, 2010

This is the problem with folks who on TV too much

26. Jason - January 14, 2010
27. TGSG - January 15, 2010

Martha Cockleak,

If you know what’s good for you…


28. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere - January 15, 2010

I have a slightly different take on the latest Pat Roberton OUTRAGE!!11!!1, so you might want to STFU BrewFan. And when you feel it wearing off, liberally apply some Shhhh!!, too.

29. Neo - January 15, 2010

Says Glover: “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?” His obscene opinion would be bigger news if Glover had – in the manner of others – idiotically blamed a less-fashionable deity.

So here we have Hollywood-type Gaia-lovers competing with Robertson to get to the bottom.

30. BrewFan - January 15, 2010

Nice link-whoring Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere! It worked because I clicked through and wasted 10 minutes of my life reading that nonsensical defense of Pat Robertson.

31. Michael - January 15, 2010

I’m with you, Brew.

BiW (and Pat) are correct to believe that God can practice retributive justice against nations.

Pat’s problem is that he is not Isaiah, and is in no position to make the call as to when this is happening. He just makes an ass of himself pretending otherwise.

32. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere - January 15, 2010

Actually Brew, I think we have the makings of a real conversation if you care to support your conclusions, rather than just tossing the bomb and running out of the room. Any jackass can say “*sniff* STFU!” and congratulate themselves on their intellect and bravery for doing so (and a quick google search reveals that many indeed have).

To call what I wrote a defense is certainly an interesting conclusion if not an inaccurate one, but assuming for a minute that it is true, how about acting like a conservative instead of a liberal and telling me why, rather than glossing over the words, and tarring me with the same brush?

33. Tushar - January 15, 2010
34. pendejo grande - January 15, 2010

34 posts to get to the most obvious:

Hey Teleprompter, STFU

35. BrewFan - January 15, 2010

Haha! Good one pg.

36. Muslihoon - January 15, 2010

God can inflict retributive justice. He also lets things happen rather than causing them to. Was Haiti one or the other? We don’t know. Only a prophet would. All others should remain silent.

Instead, true Christians would leave judgment and cause and causality to God (see Matthew 7), and instead spring into action, uplifting the fallen and showing charity and love. Who’s to say this event did not occur to test and try us, we who claim to follow God?

Frankly, the idolatry of heathens is nothing compared to the idolatry prevalent in the West, who worship themselves to the harm and exclusion of others, despite all the gifts God has given us. I think God is more enwrathed (a word now by decree of the Fascist Institute of the Vocabulary and Grammar of the English Language as Spoken by Citizens and Inhabitants of The United States or FIVGELSCIUS) by those who spurn the poor, drive away the naked, look down upon the widows, disparage the righteous, and kill the innocent, than those who worship false gods. So, if God’s going to punish the wicked, the earthquake would be here.

Now, I don’t use the word “atheists” or “agnostics.” Many atheists and agnostics don’t partake in this idolatry. (Such as those that frequent this comment-thingy.) Indeed, many so-called believers take part in this idolatry – which makes them guilty of not only hypocrisy but also pride.

37. Michael - January 15, 2010

You know, Musli, I read my Bible the same way. It’s like God has some kind of obsession about the poor and oppressed, and He gets especially exercised about widows and orphans.

Go figure.

38. Michael - January 15, 2010

Frankly, the idolatry of heathens is nothing compared to the idolatry prevalent in the West, who worship themselves to the harm and exclusion of others, despite all the gifts God has given us.

Resulting in our practice of infanticide on a scale unknown to any pagan culture.

39. Michael - January 15, 2010

In my view, idolatry morphed in the last century. We used to worship the forces of nature (sun, moon, stars, tides, animals). Then we started worshiping the forces of history (communism, fascism, evolutionary biology). The slaughter of innocents (Jews, kulaks, foetuses) increased exponentially with this transition. The laughter from Hell has been nearly audible.

Same old same old. Idolatry, as described by the Bible (somewhere, I’m not going to look it up) still boils down to worshiping creation rather than the Creator. Satan has just been slick enough to disguise this ruse, recently, as “science.”

That’s actually one of the most telling insights from The Screwtape Letters, not any original thought of mine.

40. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere - January 15, 2010

M’oon, that is exactly the criticism I was looking for. Thank you.

41. Michael - January 15, 2010

Well, I’m not going to thank you, Musli.

Frankly, I find it annoying when I have to wholeheartedly agree with a Mormon.

That’s just not right.

42. Russ from Winterset - January 15, 2010

STFU, Tuna Noodle Casserole.

43. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere - January 15, 2010

I’m sorry you find yourself in such an awful predicament, Michael.

44. Michael - January 15, 2010

Thank you, BiW, I appreciate your sympathy, I really do.

I’m sure you feel the same way I do. It just chaps my ass to agree with a Mormon. It’s almost as bad as agreeing with a Catholic.

45. lauraw - January 15, 2010

I think you meant to type something else in here Michael:

In my view, idolatry morphed in the last century. We used to worship the forces of nature (sun, moon, stars, tides, animals). Then we started worshiping the forces of nature (communism, fascism, evolutionary biology).

46. Michael - January 15, 2010

Oops, thanks Laura.

That should have been: Then we started worshiping the forces of history.

(E.g., Marx’s “historical materialism,” a religion dressed up as science.)

I’ll edit the comment. It makes no sense right now.

47. Michael - January 15, 2010

IIRC from my Poli Sci courses, fascism was actually better expressed by Mussolini than Hitler, because Mussolini did not weld fascism’s romantic view of history, and the supremacy of the state, to racism in general and the peculiarity of the Aryan genotype in particular.

48. Michael - January 15, 2010

And, you get my point about Darwinism.

I personally do not dispute that evolutionary biology is valid science. I tried, and failed, to find flaws in the overall scientific endeavor.

As a religion, worshiping the historical force of “survival of the fittest,” which is supposedly based on nothing more than random mutations, leads directly to convenience abortions, without regard for the will of God or any sense of decency.

I also agree with my various atheist friends that “intelligent design” is an article of faith which should not be taught as science, because it is not falsifiable.

I also agree with C.S. Lewis, who does not contest evolution, but contends that atheists really have no explanation for guilt.

Evolved herd instincts, protective behaviors towards the young members of the species, and so forth, just don’t really explain guilt.

49. Michael - January 15, 2010

By “guilt,” I mean this:

1. You suck.

2. You know you suck.

3. You don’t just suck a little, you suck big time.

4. You actually suck so bad you are disgusted with yourself, even though you try to blame your parents.

5. You don’t suck because you fail to meet your own standards. You do meet your own standards.

6. The reason you suck so bad is that you fall short of some standard external to yourself. It’s a standard that does not just let you off the hook by blaming your parents. We all get this internally, in our heads. We feel guilt.

Lewis’ entire apologia for Christianity starts with a trenchant question: “Where did that standard come from?”

50. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere - January 15, 2010

Michael, I look at those who so hate Christianity that they equate it with Islam and I can’t help but to think about Romans1:18-22.

51. Michael - January 16, 2010

Actually, BiW, just a few verses after what you cited is the verse I was thinking about (in #39) regarding idolatry:

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever?

Next to Romans, my favorite book of the Bible is Isaiah, because he was personally immersed in the same issues as Paul. I contend that Isaiah should be in the New Testament, because his audience (apart from the Jews of the Babylonian Captivity) was principally us, the people of the end times. Isaiah has a lot to say about this, and he has some cred based on what we already know that he foresaw.

Isaiah has a scary message, which is why he is read so much during Advent and Lent. Isaiah calls the end times the “Day of the Lord” and he does not distinguish between the the first and second coming. But, he makes it clear that the end times are not a picnic.

Isaiah is very profound reading, but you can summarize the entire message in two words: GET READY!

By that he means, cast off your pride and idolatry. If these are the things you rely on, you will be shit out of luck when the Battle of Armageddon begins, and the earth shakes, and people hide in holes in the ground.

52. Retired Geezer - January 16, 2010

I’ll edit the comment. It makes no sense right now.

Whoa! Michael can do that?

Isaiah is very profound reading, but you can summarize the entire message in two words: GET READY!

That reminds me, we saw Book of Eli today. I recommend it.

53. Terry - January 18, 2010

You knuckleheads arguing about religion… STFU!

54. Evil Con Carne - January 18, 2010

People annoying other people on a blog? STFU ALL! Except geezer he lives with potatoes.

55. BrewFan - January 19, 2010

I’m telling your dad!
