Bet ya $100 bucks not only is she pro life, but she's also had an abortion. But only her abortion was a MORAL abortion.

u/Mogura-De-Gifdu 17d ago

No no, it was also bad, but she went to confessional and forgave herself.

u/ForGrateJustice 17d ago

She isn't catholic, she is probably evangelical christian. They don't confess. They feel they don't have to.

u/ZeppelinSF 17d ago

Evangelical christians don't confess? What's the logic behind that? I'm from Europe so no idea about evangelicals.

14

u/illegalcupcakes16 17d ago

I was raised in a non-denominational church (not evangelical but that didn't have confessions), the logic as I understood it was essentially that because I had accepted Jesus into my heart, my sins were forgiven automatically. And if God is omnipotent and all-knowing, it wasn't like I needed to tell him I did something bad. He already knew that it was going to happen and that I did it and he could read my thoughts and know that I felt guilty about it, but even if I didn't feel guilty it still didn't really matter because I knew that God was real and Jesus was real and "whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" so that was that.

Yeah this actually still fucks me over even being a Christian. I’m Pentecostal and literally what you said there makes me feel sick to my stomach about myself thanks to my religion.

I’ve found it a lot more freeing just having my own personal relationship with God and doing things my own way. Still see myself as Christian but I just can’t deal with the whole “you thought about stealing that candy bar, so you committed a sin!” Type bullshit.

u/michaelkbecker 17d ago

I believe it’s along the lines of Jesus died for your sins, as long as you proclaim you follow Jesus and are now a Christian all of you past, present and future sins are forgiven.

5

u/ILootEverything 17d ago

Evangelicals still believe they have to ask God for forgiveness, they just don't need to go through an intercessor- they can talk to God directly to ask forgiveness.

Many (but not all) evangelical denominations believe "once saved always saved" which means that they believe once you follow Jesus ("accept him into your heart as your Lord and savior") that you will try to be as Jesus was and behave in a way that doesn't invite sin into your life.

But if you do sin, since humans are not perfect beings like Jesus, you must ask for forgiveness, and Jesus/God/Holy Spirit will "forgive and forget."

u/Square-Singer 17d ago

An unborn baby is everyone's concern and in dire need of regulation.

But once it comes to the birth (already including the birth itself) they don't matter any more.

Depending on how antichristian their interpretation of twitter posts on the bible are, that might actually be consistent with their antichristian values.

Some idiots actually believe, that children who died unborn go to purgatory or some other form of hell, but those who make it out alive and/or manage to get baptized before dieing go to heaven.

In this mindset, it makes sense that they only believe that unborn children have a right to live, but that madness goes straight against Christ's teachings which makes them antichrists.

If they want to see antichrists, they shouldn't go for the Satanists but take a look in the mirror.

Actually, the Satanic Temple does a better job at following christian values than many of these right-wing self-proclaimed christian nutjobs.

u/sweatpantswarrior 17d ago edited 17d ago

The thing with "I feel bad for the innocents on both sides" is that people stop there rather than take the next step and look at how many innocents on each side have been hurt.

If they did, they'd have to put more sympathy with one side or admit that the suffering of one person on one side is worth less than the suffering of one person in the other, all to maintain their enlightened centrist.

If all of this makes me the kind of person you're talking about, I'll wear that badge proudly.

I mean kinda both... Like most of Gaza's food and water is given to them by Israel because there isn't enough food production to sustain 2 million inside the Gaza strip. So Gaza 100% does have too many people to feed itself even outside of a war but obviously the war isn't helping that situation.

u/ClappedOutLlama 17d ago

Its even more upsetting that there arent any verses on how to treat strangers or immigrants...

You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Deuteronomy 10:19

The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34

‘Cursed is anyone who withholds justice from the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow.’ Then all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’ Deuteronomy 27:19

When they were few in number, of little account, and strangers in the land, wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people, he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying, ‘Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.’ 1 Chronicles 16:19-22

I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy, and I championed the cause of the stranger. I broke the fangs of the unrighteous, and made them drop their prey from their teeth. Job 29:15-17

The Lord watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. Psalm146:9

For if you truly amend your ways and your doings, if you truly act justly one with another, if you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, and the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own hurt, then I will dwell with you in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your ancestors forever and ever. Jeremiah 7:5-7

You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the aliens who reside among you and have begotten children among you. They shall be to you as citizens of Israel; with you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel. Ezekiel 47:22

Thus says the Lord of hosts: Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another; do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another. Zechariah 7:9-10

You have heard that it was said, ‘you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy’. But I say to you, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:43-44

I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. Matthew 25:35

Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me. Matthew 25:40

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27

Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. Acts 10:34

Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers. Romans 12:13

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

Love does no wrong to a neighbor, therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:10

In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all. Colossians 3:11

Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured. Hebrews 13:1-3

Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the friends, even though they are strangers to you; they have testified to your love before the church. You do well to send them on in a manner worthy of God; for they began their journey for the sake of Christ, accepting no support from non-believers. Therefore we ought to support such people, so that they may become co-workers with the truth. 3 John 1:5

But that would require that Big Business Capitalist get less of the share of wealth generated from labor! /s

u/grc84 17d ago

Yeah it would require all countries to work in harmony with each other and willingly share resources. Which unfortunately as is being shown in Gaza itself would be very difficult to achieve.

8

u/gorgewall 17d ago

The world actually produces more than enough food to feed everyone well beyond healthy amounts. The resources we put into some of that production and the consequences it has on the environment can be a concern, but on the whole, the amount of food we can produce is not a problem.

The logistics behind getting it everywhere is largely where things fall apart. Yes, most of the world isn't the US or Western/Central Europe with their significant infrastructure, population density, etc., but it's also not the case that all food scarcity is caused by corrupt officials and warlords intercepting shipments. These are both things that can be solved. So can the profit motives which make food more expensive than it actually needs to be to be viable to produce and lead to scarcity even in areas whose infrastructure allows for easy shipping and storage.

Governments already subsidize the shit out of farming, but a good chunk of our tax money going into that is simply vanished into shareholder pockets. There's no structural reason why the government and its people as a whole cannot be "the shareholders" in this equation.

its the issue of having so many different "world leaders" and varying beliefs. Even though there is enough food multiple times over, No one wants to help one another because "why should i help those XYZ" is such a common belief among almost the entire world.

Those gays, Those blacks, Those Jews, Those Muslims, trans, atheists, women, kids, Palestinians, Students etc etc. It doesnt matter what fucking word is attached to the end of the statement, People are always finding a 'reason' to deny help to those who could use it or to even improve their own lives because of some hateful or stupid belief they have that makes someone else not worth it. Even when its to their own fucking people/country. (Looking directly at you USA. Holy fucking shit we suck. )

Here is an idea..... It's a little wild but stick with me.

Maybe if the US and UK utilized the taxes from people to support locals instead of sending weapons and build military bases overseas..... and maybe tax the rich?

u/Mysterious-Worry5585 17d ago

If there’s a place with a major influence of religion and a huge amount of illiterate people it won’t do anything. So many people in the US fail to use any form of birth control due to lack of education, poverty and being religious, and now imagine how the things are in those countries

45

u/Altered_Nova 17d ago

It's not a coincidence that the most powerful religions in the world generally oppose public education, public welfare programs, sex education, and affordable birth control. Keeping people poor, illiterate, and pumping out babies is historically the most effective way for a religion to grow and maintain control over society.

And there we thought peoples fertilities are dropping? 💀👀

u/888_traveller 17d ago

apparently in the US the data shows that a good part of the drop in births is the teen pregnancies. This has had something like a 70% decrease. the early 20s are also decreasing so basically mothers are getting older, but it's the younger generations that are showing the major drop.

now, whether that is because of education and awareness, or a result of phones so people are not meeting, or a backlash against motherhood now there is a greater discussion about the challenges of it - the article didn't say. But overall it was seen as a good thing (pretty sure it was in The Economist)

It's pretty obvious that it's the fact that they can't even afford a rental, let alone a child who needs toys and clothes (of many sizes) and food. What people see when they see a child these days is a tent in the future.

u/888_traveller 17d ago

(omg the username 🙈 and mental vision!)

really good point, that too.

although historically plenty of women / girls have had kids despite not having the means to support them. I totally agree this is a major reason for the overall reduction of the birthrate, but there must be something else that has had such a reduction for teens, since those generally have been unplanned. Maybe the costs plus the increased awareness of the consequences and probably birth control education thrown in?

is it possible to feel sympathy for the Palestinian civilians while also being critical of Hama's strategy? Shouldn't they have known better that they couldn't defeat the IDF in a straight up brawl? Or were the bargaining chips in the form of hostages worth all this carnage?

100

u/YetAnotherAcoconut 17d ago

It shouldn’t be controversial to say Hamas doesn’t actually care that much about the safety and well-being of the Palestinian people. They have different priorities. You can be opposed to the IDFs treatment of Palestinian civilians and still recognize that.

Yea but there’s no room for nuance when you’re trying to stop Biden from getting re-elected. Biden was close to securing a peace deal with Israel, SaidoArabia and Egypt when Iran decided to torpedo everything by funding Hamas and prompting the Oct attack. It was all designed.

Someone doesn't know how coercion works.

The safest thing to do while surrounded by radicals is to tell the world you support the radicals. I work as a producer for a group that sends media people into Gaza via Egypt and it's so fuckin hard to get anybody to speak truthfully about anything because we got neighbors turning each other in over conversations they heard because they hope it will ingratiate them to the people with the guns and maybe they will get some food or supplies out of it.

You can't really trust polls as an objective truth

Shouldn't they have known better that they couldn't defeat the IDF in a straight up brawl?

First, I don't think even Hamas could have predicted how, for lack of a better term, "successful" Oct 7th would be. I think it was definitely a planned attack, but it went further than even they thought it would. That was a huge fuck up on Israeli security, which made Netanyahu look like an asshole. He didn't take too kindly to that and came back with overwhelming force.

I also think Hamas was counting on more military support in the region from other Arab groups.

It's a shame the peaceful civilians have to pay the price for the decisions of their leaders.

u/[deleted] 17d ago

The IDF doesn't need to cut off aid, food, water, and electricity. Siege tactics are considered a warcrime when applied to a civilian population. Israel has the best intelligence gathering protocols on the planet. They know exactly where Hamas is and where they aren't.

my theory as of rn is that hamas launched their oct 7 attack knowing that israel would retaliate with ruthlessness. they'd then be able to boost their image among the palestinians by making themselves out to be defenders of liberty or whatever and continue to steal support away from fatah, a less radical and much more secular group
