The devil is in the details...
@Pen is huge, yeah yeah take my upvote
@Pen is huge, and that was a helluva burn
@occasionalmutant, bet he thought he was clever
I finally got around to watching "Hail Satan" it's a good watch, and you can understand what they're all about.
@ThePandaPool , it’s the craziest shlt like...be a good person and...take care of yourself before others.
@theduuuude, and separation of church and state. Like who would care about such a thing?
@ThePandaPool , it’s interesting how they use Satan not as an actual religious figure but as a metaphor for non-conformity and freedom gotta applaud that creative thinking
@ThePandaPool , ohhh what is it on? Netflix?
@Murphlins, actually I think Hulu, but now I'm not sure.
@ThePandaPool , thank you for supporting my religion good sir
@ThePandaPool , can't say I always agree with their approach, but I get what they're after and can respect that they're actually out there doing something
@theduuuude, yeah but a lot of it is cringe though
Good, those mega churches in the south take advantage of the elderly, at least they could do is pay taxes on revenue after their debts are settled
Fun fact: satanist don’t believe in Satan.
@x2 6x 9 lol, there are theistic Satanists out there, but they aren't the majority
@slug111, well, they are crazy people.
That's actually a big part of why it was started.
Apparently it doesn’t take much to completely convince Micah
Oh yah, well i think people should get out of as much taxes as they can purely because the government sucks at handling our money and doesn't use it in they ways we'd like anyways.
@StiffWood, counterpoint: roads and schools. they may be bad with money, but society still needs roads and schools, and they’re the ones making sure people who arent rich are getting roads and schools. also a litany of other similar stuff like cops and firefighters
in summation: taxes good, y’know, within reason
@Hoban Washburne, slightly adjacent not quite but also kinda counter point. Look at Oklahoma's roads and education vs states that are more attractive to those of higher wealth (prettier and more fun states). Its trash, at the v least id be okay w 70% of our tax amount going to local/state governments. And 30% go to federal so they can operate military and international affairs only. But trust that private anything over government is better. Because private has to work best for you to get you to choose
@StiffWood, except when they have a monopoly in your area. Or they produce something you really need, like insulin. They only need to do what's best for you until they reach a certain size and they get enough money to influence policy. Left or Right, can we all agree to stop electing "establishment" candidates please?
@AWildMagikarp, as you literally just stated. End result is shjtty government. Of course evil will be within private corporations. But if there is allowed competition and not big companies swaying laws in their favor to squash competition, then there will be choice to choose the least worse private option. Point is, power corrupts and giving one big entity final say in anything will eventually corrupt said entity. Because what are u gonna do. Say no to the government taxing u and get arrested?
Losers and drug addled hippies on a pubescent tantrum using existing iconography to make a moot point already made by atheists while complaining about being associated with all the behaviors already established as abhorrent (in absolute) to society and cowardly antagonizing the only religious group they know they can survive offending.
@Cave Dweller, i feel like itd be way easier for an organization in america to criticize literally any other religious group than christianity. our predominant organized religion by a wide margin is christianity. and id argue the point isnt moot and multiple organizations making a similar solid point is not a bad thing
@Cave Dweller, "the only religious group they can survive offending" sure. That's why they get constant death threats and need to wear bullet proof vests in public. Sure. Christian's are all saints.
@Hoban Washburne, try Islam.
@ThePandaPool , try Islam
