Anyway, the reason I’m linking this particular article is because I want to point something out about this judgemental dipstick, Steven Crowder.
This is what I want to point out: He’s a judgemental dipstick. He even admits that he’s judging people. That is not something so-called “Christians” should be doing, Steve. If you look at Jesus’ example – did you notice how he only ever called the Pharisees out on their sin; the ones who were “in the church” – and at 1 Corinthians 5:12-13, we are not supposed to judge those outside the church. In other words, you are only supposed to judge those inside the church – like, say, Steven Crowder for being a judgemental disptick (seriously, dude, how the heck does judging people showing them love? It just makes you look stupid and arrogant).
The other thing that you’ve forgotten, Steven, and it’s something most Christians forget, is that God does not force anyone to follow what’s in the Bible.
Let me type that again so you can (hopefully) let it sink in: God does not force anyone to follow what’s in the Bible.
He does not force any person on this earth to do anything they do not want to do. You want to wait to have sex until marriage? Great! They want to have a one night stand? He says in the Bible that he doesn’t want that, but he doesn’t stop them. Those two men want to proclaim they love each other and get married? I do not see the hand of God holding a sign saying “Thou Shalt Not Get Gay Married!”
That’s because God gave us free will. We can do anything we want. ANYTHING. God gave us that power. He also said there would be consequences to our decisions, but he won’t stop us from doing whatever we want to do. He gave us laws and commandments and principles to follow and live by, but it’s our decision, our choice, whether we want to live by them or not.
After all, how could God claim that He loves us if He has to force us to love Him? How would anything we did be of any value if we didn’t choose to do it?
So God does not force us to follow Him or his word.
And if the God of the universe – the only being with the real power to actually force you to do something you don’t want to do – won’t force you to follow Him, who am I to try to force you to follow His word?
Who are you, Steven Crowder, to force the rest of the world to live by God’s standards, when God himself doesn’t force them to?
In celebration of the 9th birthday of The SoCs Domain, I was going to post a comment on Matt’s website to reflect the love and adoration I have for him and his website.
SoC’s website was one of the main reasons that I fell in love with him. His ability to make and create things, and his witty humor, even if sometimes you don’t understand it.
So here I am, ranting about there not being nearly enough rants!!! There was nowhere for me to post a comment within context, so I had to hijack his website and post a rant to reflect on all of this. And without further ado, Happy Birthday SoC’s Domain! We’ve become old friends over the years.
There is a good reason politicians are hated: they are greedy little scumbags who talk with pretty words, but only have any interest in their own power and wealth. Here are a few examples of what I mean.

No, RPG junkies and armor geeks, I’m not talking about the kind we see in the Lord of the Rings movies. I’m talking about the emails you get that say that if you don’t pass them along to all your friends, something bad will happen. These pesky emails have been around for as long as I can remember having an email and I’ve even forwarded a few. Granted, that was over ten years ago now (I must be getting old when I can say “ten years ago” and be talking about an event in my life *sigh*). Read the rest of this post »
The following is a true story. I am not exaggerating the stupidity of the people on the other side of the conversation. These may not be verbatim, but they are close.
NOTE: Yes, I have debts. Being unemployed for two and a half months makes it hard to keep up. Now that I have a job, I’m working on getting caught up. I just frustrated at the stupid debt collectors that call several times a day, every day.
