Today I got a comment from someone that essentially acted like a press release for his book, “Boycott American Women.” My first thought was LOL, this must be a joke, right?
This “book” appears to be insane and is reason #99 why people don’t respect self-publishing, because any Tom, Dick or John can publish a “book.”
All I can say is wowsa! I don’t believe in Internet censorship, but I wish they’d censor the hell out of these kind of people:
I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?
American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.
This is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:
1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)
2. False DV charges (same as above)
3. Financial RAPE of men in divorce courts
4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden contact
5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result
Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men’s lives and causing men to commit suicide. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?
Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.
BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
When I left my full-time ministry work to become a full-time atheist in 2005, one of the first things I did was question and reevaluate the relevancy of of pastors.
Are pastors even “Biblical”?
Are pastors educated enough?
Are pastors fiscally responsible? Do they share their (or their churches) financial records with the public like a good 501 C3 should? Do they have checks and balances over their expenditures?
Essentially, who are these men who teach us how to live and why do we listen to them?
It wasn’t until I was had stopped working for a pastor that I could fully evaluate these questions and the answers are probably not a shock to you, unless you’re still in the church.
I’m starting a campaign today called Just Say No (like DARE kept kids off drugs, this one will keep kids and adults off brainwashing).
After my work for several pastors and examination of their role within our culture I’ve decided that I will never follow or listen to the advice of a pastor again. Ever. I think they should work a full-time job (I don’t believe pastoring should be a paid position) outside of the church. I also believe they should be subject to checks and balances when it involves money, although that will never happen because you can spring up a church quicker than you can a Churches Chicken and with less management.
I’m advocating for a little bit of anarchy from the sheep, I suppose. And most likely they won’t change it up or question their pastor, but next Sunday if you find yourself sitting in church, don’t be afraid to disagree with the lavish ceremony, the fancy new car your pastor pulled into the parking lot driving, and the clothing they’re wearing. Don’t be afraid to notice his wife’s botox or boob job or new manicure and wonder how they can pay for all that and you can’t.
Being a pastor is more about power and money than about helping people. Look at it this way, you wouldn’t trust a politician with your pocketbook. Why would you trust a pastor to help you navigate your life? Aren’t they one and the same?
Just a few minutes ago, I wrote about how some women feel guilty and slutty for having sex on my super secret sex blog. Read the post here. And please enlighten me how YOU personally feel about sex in the comments or by taking this poll. The poll is pretty much anonymous, so feel free to be honest.
The weeks are just flying by. One moment it was my birthday and now it’s nearly Thanksgiving! What happened to the past few weeks?
For starters, I started working in retail, which I have to say isn’t as terrible as I once thought it might be. The time goes by infinitely faster than I imagined it would. However, standing on your feet all day lends to exhaustion in the wrong shoes. Duly noted. Next apartment I live in WILL have a bathtub.
Then the US came unhinged over the Penn State/Joe Paterno scandal which is really a Sandusky scandal (abusing boys in the Penn State locker room). So many lessons learned.
- Penn State brought in $50 million dollars a year under Paterno on college ball.
- That’s why he wasn’t fired (10 years PRIOR to knowing about the child rape; 1 year PRIOR after the Grand Jury found Sandusky guilty).
- The good ol’ boys will cover things up when that much money and notoriety are involved. (Church members, take note)
- Report rape to the Administration AND CPS. Not just the Administration.
After all that drama, I got a second job. I’m an official staff member of my university. Which sounds amazing, and I’m happy to have the job, BUT it was supposed to be 20 hours a week and it looks like it’ll be closer to 15 hours a week for the next few weeks. Not great news.
My friends at Recovering Alumni got a documentary aired on MSNBC which has been causing quite a stir in the Teen Mania Ministries cult. Ron Luce has done interviews with people who care (not me) like Charisma News. Apparently only biased Christian media care to interview him because real journalism has exposed his ESOAL and Honor Academy as an abusive cult-like group. Ron cares about the MSNBC documentary mostly because it may cost him money if people believe that he’s abusing teens in his ministry.
However, the blogosphere is going crazy with weirdos supporting him, saying that people who are abused should “suck it up” and “stop whining.” Typical. Go Jesus followers. You guys are the BEST.
In some countries, like ours, abusers go to jail. Although, see Penn State (above) for an example of the multi-million dollar makers NOT going to jail or being fired UNTIL years and years later when they’re old enough to die and not produce any more money for the big bad ministry (er…university).
Apparently, Teen Mania owns Charisma News because “The Bible Answer Man” Hank Hanegraaff defends Teen Mania by saying, “In reality, the MSNBC piece is a case study in sophistry, sloppy journalism and sensationalism.” It should be noted that Teen Mania was offered a second interview to allow Ron Luce to answer the claims and they refused. However, please note that Hank calls this “sloppy journalism” instead of fair.
Then Hank says “Doug and Wendy Duncan, billed as experts specializing in recovery from mind control.” Taken from their website:
Doug and Wendy Duncan are former members of a religious cult, the Trinity Foundation, in Dallas, Texas. After leaving the cult where he was a member for over twenty years, Doug earned his master’s degree in counseling and is now a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. Wendy is a licensed social worker and holds a master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is also the author of I Can’t Hear God Anymore: Life in a Dallas Cult, the true story of the couple’s involvement in and eventual separation from a cult.
A note: I’ve read Wendy’s book I Can’t Hear God Anymore: Life in a Dallas Cult and I’ve never had anything resonate with me so much in regard to my own cult experience. It seems to me that cults and abusive religious groups have leaders who are more alike than they are different. Many of the same phrases and twists in scripture that Wendy talked about were the same thing I experienced. I’m not claiming to be unbiased here. I am biased. I like Doug and Wendy a lot. I’ve searched for years to find a counselor or therapist who understands cults and recovery from a cult with futility. Their experiences and the way they help people has been invaluable to me. They’re also affiliated with International Cultic Studies Association.
I love romantic comedies. It’s Sunday afternoon and I woke up with a pounding headache, so I snuggled up in my softest blanket and tried to nap with my kitten, Molly. Molly has been sleeping for the past hour and I got caught up in a romantic comedy that was on TV. Shall We Dance? is a rom-com with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez.
I’m a little teary eyed now.
[Spoiler Alert] The end of the movie is incredibly romantic. It ends with Richard Gere romancing his wife, played by Susan Sarandon. He dresses up in his dance clothes and brings a single red rose to her work and dances with her. I started crying. Sigh.
Which reminds me of another Richard Gere movie I love (all of them?!), Nights at Rodanthe. Yes, the Nicolas Sparks book turned film. I saw it in the theater with friends and sobbed my eyes out. I don’t think I’ve ever been the same, since that movie. I haven’t faced a ton of real tragedy in life, so movie tragedy has had to suffice, apparently.
My true favorite rom-com? You’ve Got Mail. Tom Hanks. Meg Ryan. Books. White twinkle lights. Sigh. It’s so romantic. I could watch it over and over. I’m that way with movies. I’m not a one-timer. I enjoy the 100th time watching a movie as much as the first.
So, do you like rom-com’s or do you despise them?
I’m interviewing for two jobs today…like a boss. On top of all this job hunting, I’m going to school and just started a holiday job. I’m so tired. Yesterday I skipped class just so I could revamp my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. What I thought might take me an hour took me all day, because there’s a job I really want so I customized some of my profile to fit that job.
I’m usually too lazy to customize every resume and cover letter-mostly because I don’t just apply for one job. It’s usually several.
So I’m here, this morning, about to step into an interview. Class today was cancelled because of Veterans Day (Happy Vets Day!!), so I’m hoping to go straight home for some breakfast and a nap before my afternoon interview.
So much sleep. Why? My holiday job is EARLY hours. I was up at 6am Tuesday and tomorrow I get to sleep in til 7:30. 🙂
All this busyness is great but its still not paying the bills. It’s been a rough recession and I just hope to get back to full time work as close to mid-December as I can.
Next time I decide to go back to school in leui of work, please remind me that’s a BAD idea.
Because you’re so awful…
If you missed the documentary on Teen Mania this past Sunday check your local listings.
