Fucking saved 

the institution of religion too often leads to violence.

Eh, not really:

religious wars bar chart

Less than 7% of wars throughout history had anything to do with religion, and more than half of that percentage is from Islam alone.

WOW.

Except the framing is the other way around most times. We allow ourselves to be fooled by false narratives and race baiters so often it’s starting to get stupid. Too many people pushing agendas aimed at inciting anger and not enough people looking at the facts objectively.

BLACK MUSLIM MCDONALD’S EMPLOYEE REPEATEDLY PUNCHES WHITE WOMAN IN FACE, WHILE 2 YR OLD SON TRIES TO RETALIATE

WTF.

asker

thesilvercolonel asked: It saddens me that there are so many people that care more about political agendas than the truth. With the situation in Ferguson, MO, nothing justifies looting and rioting. If the police officer is guilty, then he needs to go to prison with a punishment that fits the crime. But, if he is innocent, then all these people who are lusting for his blood are the true monsters. Either way, rioting and twisting the truth is wrong.

So Mike Brown robbed the store for a box of cigars and was fatally shot a short time later.

We don’t have all the facts yet as to what happened after the robbery (the shooting), but we will. Until then, I won’t comment on that part of the incident. 

What I will say though is that actions have consequences. If you rob a store, the police will show up. If you are of the ilk that thinks the police will kill innocent people for no reason, then don’t rob a store and get the police involved.

As the facts come out in this case, I’m sure the narrative will fall apart even more. We as a society let our emotions take over and dictate our actions. We let 3rd person accounts and hearsay drive what should be based on cold hard facts. We also resort to violence way too easily. 

Society in America has a very long way to go. 

People wonder why police departments are beefing up their gear and how they respond to violent situations. But does anyone ever look at society and ask when it became so violent and animalistic?

Violence begets violence. If you have a society that shoots and kills police officers more and more frequently, the only response police can have is to meet that threat in kind. A police officer is more likely to view someone with suspicion for walking behind him for the simple reason he has been shown officer after officer who have been killed in very similar situations. He wants to go home just like every other person.

As for the Ferguson, MO. debacle: The facts of the case are not fully out yet, but we have people calling for violence and rioting. How do you think police are going to respond to rioters? Violently. Violence begets violence. Too many people are willing to resort directly to violence instead of listening to a man like Martin Luther King Jr. who advocated non-violence at any cost. Non-aggression is key, for both sides. Without it, you do not have the credibility, or the moral high ground, to demand anything.

Updates from the Dominican Sisters in Iraq

Dear Sisters, Brothers, and Friends,
Thank you for journeying with us through prayers and support in the past few months. It really is a time of peril and we are hoping that a miracle from God will end all that.
So far, 510 families have been displaced from Mosul. Some were fortunate to leave before the deadline ISIS set as they were able to take their belongings with them. However, 160 families of them left Mosul with only their clothes on; everything they had was taken away from them…
We are surprised that some countries of the world are silent about what is happening.

Are you kidding me? How is this at all acceptable? Would it also be appropriate to say that if my girlfriend cheats on me I’m going to cut her nipples off or something? Like what the actual fuck? I’m not saying that cheating is okay, but this certainly is not okay, like at all. You fucking people aren’t right.

I am so glad somebody said that.

jasechristymonet:

A black female read a book called “Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls” for a class assignment and was required to do a presentation on the subject of aggression.

The book was about educator and bullying expert Rachel Simmons giving girls, parents, and educators proven and innovative strategies for navigating social dynamics in person and online, as well as brand new classroom initiatives and step-by-step parental suggestions for dealing with conventional bullying.

During her presentation about the book, the black female made a connection to the authors findings by sharing her personal experiences growing up in an urban community with bullying and aggression in correlation with what the author of the book states about girls and aggression in urban communities.

A second black female, relates to the first black females personal experience in relation to the book and shares that she was taught to confront issues head on and if someone puts their hands on her then she should defend herself and put her hands on them.

A white female who grew up in a working middle class family also agreed with the two black women about how to respond to aggressive behavior.

The rest of the white females present in the class looked at them puzzled, as if what the black females were saying was abnormal and barbaric. Each person commented, but as a whole the concluding argument was that they did not understand this logic. That they grew in environments where people did not physically fight. There was a mixed black female who also grew up in the suburbs that found the two black females personal relation to the book offensive because she never fought growing up. Sigh*

What aspect of the black females logic was confusing? Even if you personally never fought or had to resort to fighting, If someone is physically attacking you, then you defend yourself and physically retaliate. Why is that confusing? Because based on the scientific theory of fight or flight, what the black females are saying is more than adequate. The black women were simply stating that they were not going to tolerate that type of behavior or play the victim to bullying, and they shouldn’t. A person has the right to defend themselves against their attacker, and in many US states, stand their ground. It doesn’t mean they’re ghetto or barbaric for defending themselves against a physical attack.

This response sent out an important message. Especially when reflecting over the verdict of the Martin vs Zimmerman trial. That upper middle class white people feel a black person, or any person for that matter, has no right to fight and defend themselves when they find themselves in a threatening situation.

The book, “Odd Girl Out” also talked about how suburban females dealt with bullying and aggression. Based on what was documented in the book many white females in suburban areas avoided conflict, internalized it, and, unlike the urban females who address aggressive behavior and bullying, developed health and physical issues such as depression, resulting in suicides.

Very important commentary. From a white suburban male perspective I grew up with the mentality that fighting is not the answer. Granted when we think of fighting we think of males but female fights are often put aside or considered odd. These reactions make sense, but at the same time they do not justify silencing other perspectives. Self defense is legitimate and hopefully there can be ways that these altercations can be judged a bit more fairly. It is funny how Stand Your Ground laws defend these actions, yet at the same time for only certain segments of the population. 

Everybody has the right to defend themselves, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. If another person initiates a physical conflict with you, you have every right to defend yourself up to and including deadly force (though deadly force is heavily restricted). 

Violence should always be your last resort and should never be used lightly, it is something everyone has a right to exercise in the right situations. 

I think the difference between those in the suburbs and those in urban environments stems from society. Society tells us “keep your hands to yourself” and “violence is never the answer” but then glorifies violence in movies, music and video games. The stigmatization of violence is more ingrained in affluent communities whereas violence is seen more as a fact of life in less affluent communities. Neither are wrong, but both typically refuse to see the other side as true. 

There is a time and place for pacifism, but there is also a time and place for violence. In a society where women are targets more often, they must know when and, more importantly, how to employ both. Society is not perfect, but with a little common sense and personal responsibility, we can all make it a better place.

Dozens of suspected terrorist bombmakers, some of which reportedly targeted American troops, may have been inadvertently permitted entry into the United States as war refugees, according to a bombshell report from ABC News.
ABC also obtained exclusive video of an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist, who was resettled in Kentucky as an Iraq “war refugee” after he allegedly killed American soldiers, handling heavy weapons in a storage locker in America’s heartland. The FBI believes the weapons were to be sent back to insurgents in Iraq.
Suspected terrorist Waad Ramadan Alwan can be seen in FBI video “expertly field stripping what the FBI identified as a Russian PKM machine gun,” the report said. Federal agents reportedly surveilled Alwan for a period of time and were able to identify one of his accomplices, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, who is seen in the footage handling a Stinger missile launcher and a rocket-propelled grenade launcher.
During an FBI sting operation, Alwan reportedly bragged to an undercover informant that he killed American soldiers in Iraq. FBI Louisville supervisory special agent Tim Beam said the terrorist claimed he had the soldiers for “lunch and dinner.”
Due to a seriously flawed U.S. refugee screening system, Alwan and Hammadi were resettled in Bowling Green, Ky., even though both were detained by Iraqi authorities during the war, federal prosecutors revealed.
In addition to sending weapons back to radical extremists in Iraq, Alwan revealed terrorists wanted to target a specific American soldier in the United States and also attack other targets on American soil.
“The weapons seen in the video, however, were supplied by the FBI after being rendered inoperable. Alwan and Hammadi were arrested in 2011 and later pleaded guilty to terror-related crimes,” ABC News reported.
“We are currently supporting dozens of current counter-terrorism investigations like that,” said FBI Agent Gregory Carl, director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center, known as TEDAC.
Concerns over terrorists infiltrating the United States have been rampant for years. In fact, TheBlaze documentary unit reported last year on such a plan in “The Project.”
Following the Kentucky case, the State Department halted Iraq refugee applications for six months in 2011, according to federal officials. Less than 10,000 Iraqis were reportedly given refugee status in the U.S. in 2011, about half the number from 2010.
Bowling Green Police Chief Doug Hawkins, whose department assisted with the FBI’s investigation, asked what every American is surely asking right now: “How do you have somebody that we now know was a known actor in terrorism overseas, how does that person get into the United States? How do they get into our community?”
