This year’s theme is Comedy-Horror and this year’s prizes are one game on steam up to $20 in price for the first place winner, and one game on steam up to $10 in price each for the first two runners up. You can spoof a horror film or series, come up with your own original premise, whatever. As long as you do something that vaguely falls under the category of Comedy-Horror, you’ll be considered a valid entry. You must also obey the following rules:
I try and debate with extreme right-wing conservatives in comments on local news posts and it always goes one of two ways: Either the person finds some bullshit circular reasoning for their argument or they get offended by something else entirely and stop talking.
I have no problem with faith, but I do have a problem with indoctrination.
Any system of belief— any school of thought that condemns even considering outside ideas is fundamentally wrong. If there is any truth to the things you say you don’t need to block out everything else to believe them, you should be able to consider these outside influences and determine that your way is still the way home.
And here’s the thing, they’ll quote scripture at you to support their beliefs but if you quote scripture back they’ll say, “Well, even the devil knows scripture,” like that’s some kind of defense. If the devil were quoting scripture at you you’re still acknowledging that the citations he’s making are valid, you’re saying they’re from your same infallible holy book, but you’re also saying that quoting scripture to try and validate your argument is a bullshit tactic because even the personification of evil does it
It’s like kids arguing over whether or not Santa is really the one that brought them a new basketball for Christmas except no matter what happens the kid that believes in the big red asshole always feels like they win even if they get slam dunked in the court of verbal exchange. Well bully for you, the ball is still made in China, you little shit.
There is no such thing as reverse-racism. Racism is not specific to one race. There is racism even in countries without many white people. It happens, it’s horrible. Stop tacking words onto other words that’s not how that works. Reverse-racism would literally mean being unable to attribute biases to any specific race.
