Iran, This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things No comments

This is why I have always said religion is a cancer on humanity. When people are taught to abandon reason and defer control of their actions to some imaginary Bronze age god, you get what we have here. A young woman who is being called “Neda” was merely a bystander at a political protest in Iran. She was shot by the Basij, which are a volunteer-based Iranian paramilitary force and religious zealots founded by Ayatollah Khomeini. They are religious zealots who gladly ran like lemmings across minefields to clear them for tanks during the Iran/Iraq war.

Here is their handiwork.

Hey Mr. X, why don’t you spout your bullshit ideology somewhere else. This is a blog about the internet, not religion.

failpost, June 20, 2009

although whats going on in iran is definitely an issue atm, i dont think its really relevant to bring it to stickydrama..? wrong place dude..

jennjenn, June 20, 2009

First twitter, now here?
Not the place for it. Good arguement nonetheless though.

Mr.X, June 20, 2009

All posts her are moderated, so that means somebody thought it was worth posting.
So, what exactly is bullshit about my ideology? I’m not running around slaughtering people for my god.

In fact why don’t you list for me the wars in history waged in the name of atheism?

You’re an idiot. Stop talking about religion. A psycho killing an innocent person is just a psycho. Don’t judge religion by the people.

oh hi, June 20, 2009

amor hilton is reading this and thinking, “who is iran? what’s a zee-uh-lot?” mr. x is just wasting valuable photoshopping time.

Mr.X, June 20, 2009

Religion makes psychos think it is ok to kill people.

Anonymous, June 21, 2009

Stick to internet drama, stop trying to act like you know something by copy and pasting something out of a news article online and posting a video of it here.
Some people like myself, come to this fucking website for piece of mind and LOL’s
I don’t give a shit about your opinion unless this girl was showing on stickam or had an internet account in any way

… Oh wait it doesn’t, FAIL

Oh and you spelled here* wrong

Even though the idea of god is debatable, without stuff like the 10 commandments and the teachings of Jesus, it is likely that the moral foundations of our world would not have been introduced until a lot later, too late.

No religion says that it is okay to kill people. Christianity does not say it is okay to kill, and in Islam (which i studied for 2 years) it is one of the biggest sins to kill. However people misinterpret religion so much that stuff like killings are done in the name of it which completely gives the whole religion a bad name. for example, suicide bombers, that misuse the idea of martyrdom which only applies to dying for the religion. For example, if someone said “Say you dont believe in god, or die” and they chose death, that would be being a martyr. Bombing yourself and killing others definitely does not apply. Which is why religion is only really helpful when intelligent people embrace it, not people that misunderstand everything

A common factor that people have found in murderers/psychos is that they usually have a chemical imbalance. A lot of people have crazy thoughts, and that’s normal, but you need to also have that little voice that’s filled with common sense, manners, etc. that tells you to calm the fuck down. There are many things, including religion, that can set a psycho off, even the smallest thing like someone saying the wrong thing can upset a psycho and make them go on a killing spree. Don’t blame religion for these people being fucking morons. Just because you haven’t heard about an atheist going crazy on the news, doesn’t mean it’s never happened, not everything is televised.

Why do people feel the need to focus so much attention on religion. Let people believe whatever the fuck they want to believe. Don’t believe in God, that’s fucking great, no one gives two flying shits. Do you believe in God? Yes? Great! No one still gives a shit.

That video has to be the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.

Bappy, June 21, 2009

I think this has been one of my favorite posts by you. It’s witty, lacks the usual overflow of logorrhea I can’t stand, and makes a strong point.

Unfortunately it is completely off topic and lacks even an tenuous relationship to this website. Posts are being moderated relative to the legal issue with stickam, not to filter out anything off topic or awful. Posts by chris goss and matthew star got through too, so don’t think anyone’s sucking your dick just for letting it go through.

I’m an atheist and I thing religion is a social construct to make people adhere to concepts of social responsibility most people are too stupid to understand let alone adhere to without some imaginary moral figure waiting for them to fuck up. It’s how stupid people are told when they can’t understand why they can’t steal or eat people. But outside that use it teaches a very volatile mode of thought that can become very, very dangerous. However, if I was trying to make a point, I wouldn’t start out with calling religion a cancer on humanity. It’s better to point out the negative things and let people reach that conclusion by themselves, rather then make them bristle with an opener like that.

Fuck you ppl that dont think this is important. its a world issue. Its on every news channel on AMERICAN tv. So really who ever thinks it doesnt involve the us, is a fucking retard.

Anonymous, June 21, 2009

I find it funny how sad people are, saying ‘stick to internet dramaz ya’. So you actually preger to lurk peoples stickams, find underage tits and make fun of people being fat, instead of, you know, understanding whats going on in the world, doing something to change it or make it better etc.

Props to the people who have said they only care about internet drama. Just proves how sad your lives are, and youre pretty uch just going to live on this website for the rest of your lives, waiting for your fifteen minutes on the stickydrama front page.

well done. i bet youre all american too.

AMOR PROFEN, June 21, 2009

that video..
just was like :’/
thanks for ruining my day.

My life is far from sad, in fact, I’m actually quite content. Yes, the video is sad, and yes it’s also sad if a person doesn’t know what’s going on in the world and doesn’t give a shit about this kind of violence. However, this is the place to spew your anti-religious bullshit. If I want to read this kind of shit I’ll go to reuters or CNN, that is why those websites and exist and yes, I do browse those sites on a daily basis. What does the banner for this site say? I’m sure reading this is already quite difficult for you so I’ll tell you, it says, “the #1 tabloid about internet celebrities and gossip.” Not, “horrible things happen in the world everyday, take a look.”
So when I come to this site you’re damn right I don’t expect nonsense like religion is to blame for murder. Do you realize how retarded that sounds?
You bet we’re all American too? So you’re generalizing and saying that Americans don’t give a shit about others. What you said speaks for itself, I could guess and say something about whatever the fuck you are but that would mean I would have to give a shit…and I don’t.

mr x is such an ass to people on stickam but he cares about some arab ho lol

Bappy, June 21, 2009

Yeah we’re so shallow for coming to this website to read the content for which it was designed. That’s why I go to porn sites for my local news and I come here for political, social and religious commentary.

If you’re too stupid to understand the concept of not being relevant despite it’s independent merit, I’m not going to explain it to you. I understand stupid people have a huge boner for being outraged about this or that, so if you want to be SHOCKED by how un-cultured we are for pointing out how totally irrelevant this is, go for it.

Mr.X, June 21, 2009

So tell me giggy, exactly how are the thugs of a theocratic government shooting a chick not the result of religion?

To all you religious apologists say religion says killing is a huge sin. Are you completely disconnected from reality? Have you ever actually read a history book? Ever hear of the crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, suicide bombers and 9-11? You are appalled by Hock’s rape of an unconscious girl but are silent when children are restrained and have their genitals mutilated to appease a blood thirsty god every day. Save it, I’m not buying it.

Amor Profen, you think your day is ruined? Well just be thankful you didn’t die drowning on your own blood because you didn’t want to wear a scarf all day long.

Anon @12:55 am, learn what a homophone is before you call somebody a dumb ass for using the right one. You fucking moron.

Anon @11:58 am, she’s not an Arab, you dumb ass. The only people I am an ass to are the assholes. Like you.

So Bappy, exactly how is this off topic? This video was posted on YouTube, which is one of the social networks routinely covered by this site. Also I would call getting shot in the thorax pretty dramatic. The post is intended to elicit a dialog. Seems like it has. My intent was to bristle people, rather than placate their fragile little minds. There will never be a shortage of posts about somebody’s hair or new boy friend. So you think religion is needed by society and I believe it is simply a tool of mind control. It helps the sheeple ignore the dick that’s up their ass every day from their corporate overlords. So explain to me how it isn’t a cancer? Exactly how is rationalism and education something very, very dangerous? When it is the reason most here are alive and the reason we are able to have this conversation. It has made it possible to feed the masses of the Earth.

OWNED

bappy, June 21, 2009

It is off topic because this is a tabloid about internet celebrities. There is a video on youtube about fish with tits. I will not post it, because youtube is a video hosting site, not a social networking site, and a song about a tittyfish is not relevant to post here. It is where a lot of internet celebrities post their videos, because it is a popular video hosting site. However, that tenuous link does not mean current events in iran are relevant whatsoever to this site. You are shifting your arguments as they’re shot down and it’s not flying. Just about every topic is covered by a video on youtube somewhere, but unless you’re going to tell me every topic is somehow related here simply because it’s hosted on the most popular video hosting site on the internet… well you’re not, because that’s stupid and you know it.

I never said religion was needed, I said it was a way to teach stupid people social resopnsability. I said religion taken too far was a dangerous mode of thought, not education, please read before responding. I agree with you in principle but I take issue with people who’s main forum of argument is hyperbole and abstract metaphor. “Dick up their ass from corporate overlords,” “feed the masses of the earth.” Concrete, please. Also, relevance, please. Post this on your blog, not here.

Mr.X, June 21, 2009

Fuck you Bappy, all I ever hear you do is whine, moan, piss and complain. Nobody is holding a gun to your head making you read this shit. You don’t want to, then don’t. Are you some kind of mindless automaton that must read every post on this site? For the most part I skip posts from authors I don’t appreciate and the majority of subject matter. Perhaps you should do the same.

So in closing, suck my cock.

JustAnotherLurker, June 21, 2009

“mr x is such an ass to people on stickam but he cares about some arab ho lol”

…..Iranians are not Arabs.

Everything is flawed. Even religion because people are flawed.

So that’s why you care

oh the lulz, June 21, 2009

There is plenty psychos who are not religious, religion is irrelevant. These people have problems, they just use religion as an excuse. Atheists and people who believe in God would be equally horrified to this.

Anonymous, June 21, 2009

id rather read about something like this that know how amor hilton photoshops her pics

bappy, June 22, 2009

Hahahahaha

Oh noooo Mr. X! Umad?

I’m sorry that you posted something totally irrelevant and it wasn’t well received. Maybe you could admit that it wasn’t totally relevant but still thought provoking and put it to rest. Or make up bullshit arguments about it being on youtube and then freak the fuck out when I point out how dumb that is. Your choice.

I like reading this site, if you post something off topic I’m going to point it out. No one’s holding a gun to your head and forcing you to write.

So in closing, no thanks and go fuck yourself/stop taking yourself so fucking seriously, haha!

Mr.X, June 22, 2009

Bappy, you are not the Grand Pooh-bah of relevance for this site. My post contains within it a common thread with earlier posts I have made. If you are too stupid to realize this, you needn’t bother commenting on them. Your inept assessments are off topic in my posts and will be deleted. Stop walking in my mind with your dirty feet.

bappy, June 22, 2009

I liked you better when you were yelling, Mr. X. It was more linear.

That’s ironic, are you going to start censoring my comments on your posts about a totalitarian government that censors their people?

Mr.X, June 22, 2009

I’m making an exception in your case. If you knew anything about what free speech clause dealt with, you’d know it has EVERYTHING to do with government censorship. I am not the government and it is my prerogative as the author to squelch your annoying droning. So you misuse “irony” as well.

“I don’t give a shit about your opinion unless this girl was showing on stickam or had an internet account in any way ”

I’ve read some sick shit on this website, but this has got to be one of the MOST pathetic statements I’ve ever seen.
This might not be our precious, usual John Hock/ Kiki Kannibal news, but this is reality…
Saying you don’t care really just shows something.
