All of the stories appearing on Christian News Network (except for one about drugs which has 2 comments so far, and one about abortion which has 1....and the Nathan Larson one, which wasn't about anything LGBT, but that ain't gonna stop some people from making it about that, I guess) over the last 10 days are drag queens, LGBT, or STDs.    I wonder if they look at the direction the comments go, and/or what stories get the most comments, when they decide what they're going to have stories about.

That place would shrivel up like a dandelion if they didn't run their LGBT, pedophile, drag queen and STD stories.  No one else gets interested enough to comment.  To the outsider, someone who didn't know about Christianity at all, to visit that site you'd be led to believe that Christianity is all about hating on all those things and nothing else.

I'm still kinda surprised they don't seem to give much of a shit about abortion anymore.  I'd think something that they consider to be murder of innocent people would be more of a pressing concern than, for example, some drag queens interacting with kids somewhere.

WTF is this shit even?  (from Amos, not that anyone can't tell anyway)

Quote
FYI ...... there is nothing higher than the truth ...... if there was proof" of the truth ...... then the "proof" would be higher than truth
.....SO ...... the task you have set for yourself is ...... PROVE the PROOF is higher than truth .....

Does that make any sense to anyone?  It doesn't to me.  He's talking in circles.  First he's (I think) saying proof isn't necessary.....then expecting someone to prove that it is?

As I recall, he used the same kinda reasoning (if you call it that) about science.  Something along the lines of "you can't use science to prove science".  That made no sense to me either.

The fuck is Amos smoking?  Because I want some.

For research purposes, of course.

It does kinda sound like something that someone would come up when stoned off their ass.

“Twisted Platonism” - Abstract truth resides a the highest most level. Below “Truth” we have reason, then lower down proof (which are reflection of parts of truth), below that science which is flawed man’s attempts at finding truth. And of course lies which is Satan’s tool to deceive man.

Just like “First Cause”, “Truth” requires a Truth Giver (yep you guessed it), This Truth Giver kindly provided a simple, clear recording, available without need to interpretation, of all truth which is available in the KJV.

So, in other words, the truth is what God says, and you have to accept that that is the truth without any proof, (since he pretty much said or implied THERE IS NO PROOF OF THE TRUTH) because....uh....reasons.

This shit gives me a headache.  This kind of stuff is why I feel like sometimes theists are using all the same words that I am, but they're speaking a different language.  I dunno, maybe there's something in some people's brains that lets this stuff make sense to them, and I just don't have it.

I just want to say I'm absolutely loving this thread right now:

https://disqus.com/home/discussion/christiannewsnetwork/netflix_picks_up_tv_drama_lucifer_portraying_devil_as_charming_crime_fighter_following_fox_cancellat/

Looks like because it's about the show Lucifer being cancelled and then picked back up by Netflix, some people, including some Christians, who don't usually post on Christian News Network, are commenting to say they're fans of the show.  Amos responded to a few of them, of course, and the people gave it right back to him.

That is pretty fascinating.  More fascinating it looking at how many downvotes the more innocent newcomers have gotten, especially the one who says she's Catholics (Teresa, I think her name was).  True to form the Catholic haters jumped on her, and Guest Verified attacked her for it.

Some of those people have 15 downvotes!

Christian News Network’s newest censoring tactic is to have every single comment a user they wish to make unwelcome be set to “spam” so that it never gets seen by anyone.  I don’t know how they manage to do that but I have an account over there which was working perfectly, and now nothing I write ever displays.  In my profile I see what I wrote but it has a “detected as spam” flag next to it.

I have discovered that it does not matter how civilly you engage with Amos, no matter how well you weather his abusive screaming that you are a liar, how skillfully or gently you bring him back on topic when he goes skittering off topic...Christian News Network will ALWAYS ban you.

Because scripture, I guess.  I cannot imagine why they do it or why they ignore the far worse behavior of people who are supposed to be Christians but act like animals in a zoo.
