Youtube Political Correctness stifling debate
Winston, Recently you may know a youtube video was pulled by the Politically Correct Moderators. The video was about James Randi it was simply a video response to Randi finally admitting he was GAY. John Benneths video point was that Randi has lied all of his life and so what else is he lying about ? While forever presenting himself as an arbitrator of truth.
Also Christopher Hitchins has confessed to Homosexual practices Skeptic Derren Brown is also known to be gay.
Could Ricard Dawkins be a married GAY? His arguments are so irrational and shallow.
That entertaining Benneth video could be run locally inside YOUR website to generate more traffic. It could be linked to youtube accounts directing people to your site.
2 points arise out of this.
The video is not offensive. And was likely taken off Youtube by a GAY support moderator all too happy to respond to protests.
POINT 2 The Youtbe people protesting this video turn out to be very Miltant Atheists. Ferocious Psueodskeptics. And at least one has turned out to be GAY himself- he was caught recently watching GAY PORN onYoutube.. after he had proested Jonh Bennets video off alleging it ws homophobic
Conclusion tentative- that the very worst miltant atheists who badmouth religious people are engaged in a a covert war against heteroxuals disguised as a religous dispute.
Commentators have long pointed out the irrational baffling aggression of miiltant atheists. Both Christopher Hitchens and James Randi have both finally confessed to being practising homosexuals.
Conclusion a percentage of the vast following of James Randi are closet angry GAYS.
Not all of course some are just stupid angry people.
On his youtube channel James Randi is told by some devotees they get erections just thinking about him. Seriously.Take a look there. Comments section.
.More videos could be made proposing this theoretical interpetation of the extreme aggression of Miltant Atheists- pseudoskeptics
This could cause more controversy of a revenue earning nature, advantageous to you Winston.
Concerns about libel defamation etc can be avoided by consulting with Victor. In your stand alone site I dont think you can be sued by anybody. Can we Use Names Like James Nardi and Christopher Bitchins ? In videos?
I here enclose a video of one of the large victim group. A very nice normal average heterosexual religious person.
He was buried in Militant Atheist hatemail. Youtube closed his innoffensive videos down about God and atheism and this video reveals his utter bewilderment at the tidal wave of hate.
This video could be run in your site next to the John Benneth one.
A lively debate could follow about the motivation of these hatefilled atheists toward heterosexual mainstream religious people.
We may have finally found what motivates some pseudoskeptics.
I have some more opinons on this
Observers have noted that Atheists and GAYs uses similar methods of argument.
" Recently, I noticed a similarity between atheists and homosexuals that hadn't occurred to me before.
It has to do with the way they wage their wars. Basically, they erect straw men, put words in their straw mouths, and then engage in battle with these creatures they've cobbled together with spit and glue.
It just seems to me that it's high time we began setting the record straight. To begin with, there is no such thing as homophobia. A phobia is defined as a fear or anxiety that exceeds normal proportions. Concocting the word was simply a rather sly way of suggesting that it is heterosexuals who are deviant. The other lie that is parroted with some frequency is that those who don't fully support the gay agenda are most likely latent homosexuals, which is supposed to suggest, I assume, that lurking inside every heterosexual man is an interior decorator screaming to get out and do something about those curtains.
Odd, isn't it, that you never hear about latent heterosexuals?
Even the ancient Greeks, to whom modern-day gays enjoy comparing themselves, never engaged in anything quite as bizarre as same-sex marriages.
The proof that heterosexual men aren't all sitting around fantasizing about being seduced by Boy George or Richard Chamberlain is that every heterosexual man I know prefers having his cavity worked on by a dentist than by a proctologist.
Homosexuals like to picture themselves as the innocent victims of the oppressive majority. The recent unpleasantness on behalf of same-sex marriages doesn't happen to be a response to laws depriving gays of any rights or privileges to which they are otherwise entitled. They are as free as they've always been to marry members of the opposite sex. For several millennia, everyone has understood marriage to mean the sacred union of a man and a woman. I have asked on more than one occasion if the institution of marriage is to be turned on its head to accommodate the ludicrous demands of a very small number of people, on what moral or legal basis does society then deny fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, or, say, your cousin Phyllis and a dozen Elvis impersonators, from tying the knot. If the parties merely need to be consenting adults, on what basis could you prevent Hugh Hefner and his bevy of blonde companions from pledging their troth before man and God? I have yet to receive a response.
One other point should be made. In spite of all the rioting and all the whining in the wake of Proposition 8, only a few thousand same-sex marriages have taken place in Massachusetts, Connecticut or even here in California, where it was permitted for a while. And most of those marriages involved lesbians. Yet the way their male counterparts have been carrying on, you'd have thought the gay bars had all been padlocked.
This brings us to atheists and their own brand of hypocrisy and lies. It's silly enough when they feel they can use logic to disprove the existence of God. But it's worse when in voicing their angry opposition to organized religion, they begin sounding exactly like the religious zealots they claim to despise.
And another one
Atheists spend a lot of time thinking about the motives for belief. Why do religious people believe these ridiculous things? When you turn the tables on atheists and ask them why they don't believe, they will answer, "Because we don't have enough evidence. We don't believe because there's no proof." But if you think about it, this is an inadequate explanation, because if you truly believe that there is no proof for God, then you're not going to bother with the matter. You're just going to live your life as if God isn't there.
I don't believe in unicorns, so I just go about my life as if there are no unicorns. You'll notice that I haven't written any books called The End of the Unicorn, Unicorns Are Not Great, or The Unicorn Delusion, and I don't spend my time obsessing about unicorns. What I'm getting at is that you have these people out there who don't believe that God exists, but who are actively attempting to eliminate religion from society, setting up atheist video shows, and having atheist conferences. There has to be more going on here than mere unbelief.
If you really look at the motivations of contemporary atheists, you'll find that they don't even really reject Christian theology. It's not as if the atheist objects to the resurrection or the parting of the sea; rather, it is Christian morality to which atheists object, particularly Christian moral prohibitions in the area of sex. The atheist looks at all of Christianity's "thou shalt nots"—homosexuality is bad; divorce is bad; adultery is bad; premarital sex is bad—and then looks at his own life and says, "If these things are really bad, then I'm a bad guy. But I'm not a bad guy; I'm a great guy. I must thus reinterpret or (preferably) abolish all of these accusatory teachings that are putting me in a bad light."
Winston I dont know if you saw that John Benneth Randi video. I have a copy.
This whole idea can be presented as a debating point and test of free speech principles.
A worthy cause that could generate some revneue for you.
Steve in Sydney
Stevetrueblue, if a person does not flount their sexual preference are you saying they are a liar.
Just want to get this straight because it sure looks like that is what you are saying.
What other preferences does someone have to openly and loudly profess to avoid this label? Do they have to specify their religious preference, food preference, movie preference, music preference, etc.
Where is the boundary between privacy and being a liar drawn? You seem to have some idea of where that line is so please tell us more.

Thanks for that Nostradamus...
I've not "hid" the fact that I identify as being gay (and I say it that way for a reason) but I don't go around beating a drum about it and for that matter, get rather disgusted by the antics a minority segment of the GLBT community express on the public front as well as some of the political issues they encourage us to support... sorry all fagots aren't created equal
When I said that I "identify" with being Gay it's because I've been celibate for most of the past two decades, playing Mr. Mom to three great kids... too, my initial steps towards celibacy stemmed from personal spiritual "needs"... but again, this isn't something I ran out to beat a drum over... IT'S PERSONAL!
Tattoos... I have several but it's rare anyone ever sees them in that they too have personal "religious" meanings to me and aren't anyone else's business... do I need to reveal what they are and where they are and explain why I have them?
Most folks (myself included) that have known Randi for any period of time, knew he was gay and that's without the stories of young lads who were propositioned back in the 70s. James just can't seem to keep his mouth closed at times... but show me a breeding male that don't haller and act really retarded when he gets turned on by some young chick walking down the street... or the 40 year old dude hitting on the 19 year old girl, thinking himself to be the same dud... I mean stud he was "in the day"... I find that sort of crap rather revolting as well in that it really isn't a show of respect (of the intended as well as yourself) and it reveals that about the only taste one has in life is what's in his/her mouth.
There is absolutely no reason why I or anyone that happens to be gay, has to tell the world. We gave up the Pink Triangle Arm bands at the end of WWII (bet you didn't even know where the pink trine came from did you? It was what gay people sent to the concentration camps had to wear instead of the star of david).
Pardon my being defensive, but just wanted to offer a few points to think on if what I (and obviously others) understood your rant to be how it sounds.
Stevetrueblue I think it is offensive for people to bad mouth people that are religious. If people want to be religious that's fine. I invite traveling Mormons and others putting out the message into my house. In general religious people are true to their faith and good people. That goes for people of major religions and wiccans as well.
So now we are onto the bad eggs. I believe that people off center are trouble makers. That goes for the left and the right and the militant anti-religious fanatics as well as the militant religious fanatics. Not sure if militant atheists are targeting heterosexuals. I can't say. I don't know any militant atheists.

I don't know about ya'll, but sometimes I really wish I had my own little island in a remote corner of the world where I could eat, drink, watch, marry, and religiousize any freaking thing I wanted to without someone telling me how wrong it is for me to be doing or beling it.
So...... pack up the wife and dog and move by me.
A few months on this haunted little island and we will make a believer out of you yet.
Does anyone ever stop by your house to teach you about Jesus? Would anyone care if I didn't believe in god? Could I marry a man if I wanted to? Could I walk by my window naked? Can I eat meat and wear leather and not have anyone telling me how horrible I am to animals?
They stop by, we chat and I enjoy their company for a few minutes. Then my husband comes out and sprays them with the hose.
Not particularly. It's not like it's a regular topic of conversation around these parts.
We have many co-habitating same sex couples but I'm not up on those marriage laws by state. Around here, no one cares.
I don't see why not. I hang out in my yard nekkid all the time.
As long as you don't spill anything on your leather while eating, no one will say a thing. As a matter of fact, you can walk around wearing live animals and no one would probably give you a second look. Parrots, snakes, lizards and small furry creatures are considered accessories around here. Pets are welcomed in most businesses, even some of the outdoor cafes and wild cats are EVERYWHERE.
There aren't many 'rules' and political correctness is not particularly an issue. On a small island, everyone is either your neighbor or a tourist. A neighbor is a friend no matter what his race, creed, sexual orientation, blah, blah, blah is and a tourist is always VERY well treated as they pay our bills around here. We also have a right fine assortment of military personnel in the area. They get special treatment and discounts off base. American flags fly with pride, the schools are very highly ranked, our teens are polite, the crime rate is low, we do have city culture near by if you should miss the 'big city' and our beaches are pristine.
One problem. YOU MUST LIKE WILDLIFE AND NO MAJOR NIGHT LIFE. There's a ton of wildlife that surrounds you at all times. We have very few places open all that late.
Sounds like my kind of place Ninja! See you next week!
I'll be here. We will leave a light on for ya!
This is exactly what I've been saying for years and one of the reasons I proudly stand within a few degrees of center on most any topic, be it a political. social or religious type issue or whether or not E.T. is real. As best I can I try to sooth my fantasy-driven mind by looking at things analytically; not to disprove them but rather gain possible explanations as to where such beliefs came from and why so many human beings insist on clinging to the fantasy vs. the realities. This of course, is why I do not think it wrong for me to call myself a "Psychic" in that my understanding and personal definition of the term is not the same one clung to by the dreamers. But by using it as my title, I have put out a hook by which I can reel in this and that fish, teaching them a far more logical way of looking at the idea of things Psychic and why it's important. Gullibility is a facet of Ignorance which, according to certain teachings from both, east & west, is a sin; ignorance can be changed, stupidity on the other hand... let's just say that it comes about when you have folks who know better but insist on doing things in ways that go against the proverbial grain anyway... such as those that keep doing the same exact thing over and over, getting the same end result over and over; refusing to change and do things in a manner that brings about productive results vs. frustration and anger.
Most folks that stand on the extreme ends of the issue, whatever that might be, are quite bitter and lonely individuals. You will find that they are rather frustrated about their own life and rather than trying to correct their own circumstances, arrogantly reach out to change everything else. In 12-Step recovery they refer to this as being "The Director"... the one that believes the world must work according to their dictates, refusing to believe to the contrary e.g. they are almost constantly bitter and even fragile.
Now About that Haunted Island Escape... :twisted: Do you have room for a fat, broken down middle-aged fool and his cat? Is it wheelchair accessible?
There's plenty of room, most of us are middle-aged and could stand to lose a few pounds but since casual dress is the fashion at all times, you can hide those pounds easily.
As for wheelchair accessibility.... oh hell yeah! This place is ADA compliant to the extreme. We even have special chairs on loan (no cost) so you can go to the beach. Even the fishing piers are set up for wheelchairs as are most of the businesses.
(verrryy late response) I don't think this is fair at all. I used to be very atheist but certainly amn't gay. My brother is pretty atheist, and he certainly isn't gay. Some might have some sort of alterior motive, but to say they're mostly homosexuals and all homosexuals are secretly conspiring against the heterosexuals sounds pretty bigoted and generalizing to me.
