I've seen preachers before. That is just a douche with a megaphone.

Who's really going to "burn in hell" here? The people who are innocently enjoying art and having fun, or the dude who thinks anyone who doesn't ascribe to what he believes to be societal norms are damned souls who aren't worthy of God's grace unless they repent all their "evil doing" and become just like him- a loser with a megaphone who damns other people to hell.

Honestly, the line between the majority of those in the born again movement and the likes of Westboro is thinner than it probably should be. And I don't imagine that Jesus would approve. I mean, dude hung out with prostitutes and shit. Yet "the buck stops here at anime!" apparently. wtf.

I'm Catholic and I'll be the first to say that this is Out of Touch. Their theology is dramatically different, and for born-again evangelicals, the primary means of evangelization is interpersonal relationships. Most evangelicals I've met frown upon street preaching and consider it an ineffective approach for the times. You'd possibly be more accurate saying "the line between Shiite Muslims and al-Qaeda is thinner than it probably should be."

Al-Qaeda is a militant Sunni Islamist multi-national organization founded in 1988 by Osama bin Laden, Abdullah Azzam, and several other Arab volunteers during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

No, I really do see that as the ridiculous result of what you wrote. If that's not what you mean, by all means clarify, because calling me a liar isn't doing so.





OK so it's after the work day, things have calmed down. let's look at what I wrote.

"I Must Sex or Die" is a myth perpetuated by sluts and lechers to justify their promiscuity. At the same time, porn has been shown to have negative effects on both the makers and the consumers.


So, let's take the first sentence. Now, if we put on our thinking caps and recall our fourth grade grammar (seventh or tenth, if you went to public rather than parochial school), you may realize: this means they are saying two different things. You see, the subject of the sentence is "I must sex or die". The predicate of the sentence is "is a myth..." You say that sentence says "People who masturbate are sluts and lechers". However, you may notice that in the latter sentence, the subject is "people who masturbate" and the predicate is "are sluts and lechers". You may notice two things: 1) the subject is different. 2) The predicate is different. In human communication, as compared with lesser primates, this means the sentences are saying two different things.

The thing is, I give you more credit than to need the explanation I just provided. That's why I have a hard time believing you actually meant what you said.

I think we're all just trying to avoid the uncomfortable truth that this is most assuredly the title of a porn movie somewhere.

Even in fourth grade grammar I should hope you've learned that a paragraph is used to connect a shared ideas.

Totally a visual novel title.

All right. And..... that paragraph is two sentences. Let's look at the second sentence: At the same time, porn has been shown to have negative effects on both the makers and the consumers.


So, in that sentence, the subject is "porn". The predicate is "has been shown....". That is different from "People who masturbate" and "are sluts and lechers". So you can see, the second sentence follows the same logic as the first sentence. Id est, it does not say what you think it says. Now, you may recall this tool called a "conjunction". What is the function of a conjunction? Well, "A conjunction is the part of speech (or word class) that serves to connect words, phrases, clauses, or sentences. " In said two sentence paragraph, I used the conjunctive phrase "at the same time". It indicates that we are talking about two different things "at the same time". You see, they are loosely related in that they are both under the topic of "sex", and we are talking about them "at the same time". Hence, the logically connection is twofold (meaning: having two aspects): 1) they are under the same broad category 2) We are talking about them at the same time.

Ah, so people fucking in your visual novel are sluts and lechers, and the people wanking off to it are just weirdos hurting themselves? Clearly requires going back to grade school.

That's a very juvenile way of saying it, but that is a much more accurate understanding.

Glad we could clear that up.

So... do you have any experience with street preachers?

Of course the proper response is to break out the detergent, and say"hey,its me long time no see ! can you write down your name on this piece of paper so I won't forget!"

You know a conversion to axis cult will cleanse your soul better than this detergent!
And as always remember, "ERIS PADS HER CHEST!"

I've only interacted with one who was on my university campus every year. He had some strange theology on a few points, but overall he was pretty well tempered. Not just yelling at people. He had a hellfire banner on a big stick that he used for attention.

Once in Nashville I saw this big car that was covered with stickers and bullhorns. It was going up and down Broadway repeating these recordings. I suppose "doomsday nut" would be a fair description.
