It Doesn't Make Sense

Many are pissed off. You've mocked our GOD.
There are a lot of things about life I don't understand. I don't know why a crucifix dipped in the artist, Andres Seranno's urine can be displayed in an art gallery with our tax dollars funding it while the U.S. defends the Muslims for killing our ambassador over a horrible b-grade movie on Youtube that mocked their god.  Aren't we a "Christian" nation? Why aren't we rallying and burning their flags? Why is our country "a Christian country" anyway? Aren't we a melting pot? Guess not. But what makes one religion more protective over another? Is it more important? Isn't any "god" worshipped a priority? Or, is it just that some people are just absolutely batshit crazy? How come those crazy Christian extremists who want all homosexuals killed in the name of god not picketing outside of the art gallery where their own Christ is dipped in urine? I guess the homos are to blame as they continue to blame everything, even 9/11 on the homosexuals. Makes a whole lotta' sense.

Don't come knocking!
If I really dwell on what 'may' be going on with our government and all the conspiracy theories buzzing through every cable line and every mouth of a psycho-crazed bomb shelter building doomsday prepper, you have to really wonder what's real and what's "hidden" to the public. I can see how it can drive some people absolutely insane. For instance, if these conspiracy theories were false, then why did the show called, "Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura" get canceled? The government said that it gave the viewers a skewed image of the country. ...Did it? I remember an episode where they were talking about when and (if) we ever come into a real catastrophe like a nuclear fallout, terrorism attacks or even something self-provoked (for whatever reason), that they would pump antipsychotics into our water to reduce mass panic or even to control our minds. It does make sense though. T. Boone Pickens scattered up the most important natural resource: water. He invested in all the water plants of Nestle Corporation. Why doesn't the government regulate what's put into bottled water? Kind of makes you wonder.

I don't understand hate crimes. How can someone beat or kill someone over color, race or sexual orientation? I've always came to the conclusion that homophobes who committed hate crimes were people who were either secretly gay or somehow threatened by their own sexuality. But then you have to consider those who commit hate crimes against different races. Do they secretly want to be 'that race'? Is it how we're raised? Like Pit Bulls -- they say if they were raised to fight, they're going to fight to kill, but if they are raised in a loving family, they should be docile and like any other breed. Or is it in our genetics? Are we born to hate other people or is it some seed that was planted years ago to instill the "go get em'" mindset? I also don't understand why black people are calling each other the "N" word. And what's much more alarming is, people of hispanic decent are calling one another as well as black people the "N" word too, without any  repercussions. It's like calling someone, "brotha". Martin Luther King's turning in his grave right now hearing his youth call each other something they've been struggling with for years. It makes no sense.

/end rant.

Art isn't the same as harm. I know it seems a blured line, but it is very different. Why you would dip anything in urine as art - i don't know. why any gov't would defend the killing of any amabassador - i don't know.

It's pretty well known that if you have the m oney - you have a plan for when shit goes wrong. I don't think a tv show really needed to point out the obvious there. I prefer to think about the chances of me personally being affected by those things and living in a low populated, close to the boonies area gives me some comfort. And I can work a shot gun (and have one) so i'm cool. lol...

I don't understand hate crimes either... but I can see how mob mentality works and how that gets people to do things that they never would have done before. Sometimes the outcome is good... sometimes not so much. But in a group of people who sit around validating one another and wanting to be heard... it can get scary.

Good rant for the day though!

"homophobes who committed hate crimes were people who were either secretly gay"

Shrinks have put them in front of a screen, shown them gay porn, and measured their arousal. They were indeed aroused.

The rant was fine. Then I turned to the comments. Oh Snow, you have put a very, very ugly picture in my head. Those poor shrinks, measuring other mens' arousal. And then I found my self snickering a little at the juxtaposition between shrinks and measuring arousal.
And no, I don't understand hate crimes at all.

Xmichra, I’m speaking about the difference between a Youtube video mocking a god and a controversial piece of art work of our god being dipped in urine. Not the repercussions of it. As far as living in a low populated area --- that’s where people would be most likely to flock to first. (lol) And a shotgun? I have one too but that’s not gonna save you when over 100 people are trying to knock down your door just to get some shelter or steal your food. Get one of those heavy duty machine guns. Blast em’ all to bits. ;)

Snowbrush, You know something -- I saw this documentary (maybe it was a Dateline thing) and it showed these tests being done to homophobic people watching pornographic images and videos and they were aroused. I totally forgot about that! Hmmm.... Making me think again, I don’t like it! :)

TEC, Haha, always a lovely picture watching a hateful bigot being aroused.

"I don't understand hate crimes at all."

They're miniature versions of war, and are often carried out by people who are quite idealistic.
