Jewish Atheist

An agnostic atheist perspective
from a once orthodox Jew.

This girl at school called me “a stupid piece of Jewish shit” So I threw my coke on her, my sandwich at her, and beat the shit out of her and she had to go to the hospital because she had a dislocated shoulder and I was so mad that afterwards I was hysterically crying and I don’t remember doing any of it but it was video taped.

blardenfrazifonochip asked: Sigh. Everyone on Jumblr is talking about how they want the US to make a law that makes being a Nazi illegal, and I'm all "No, that will just put their activity underground. I'm glad pieces of shit in this country are allowed to advertise how they're a piece of shit so they can exposed and I can know to avoid them" but sometimes I feel like i'm talking to wall.

I don’t think any worldview should be illegal, only that certain actions should be illegal.

If someone wants to be a nazi, then let them. and as you rightly pointed out, it’s not like we can forcibly make them feel or think differently.

but if someone wants to promote violence, that’s another matter.

Hey, Jumblr, how about y’all reconsider your stance on thought police. How would you feel if ppl decided (as many do believe) that judaism is racist and that therefore being religious should be illegal? I imagine you’d be pretty pissed about it.

So let’s get with the 21st century and with american values: as long as no-one’s stepping on your balls, just let them be.

Dear Freiluch,
I’m ALL for porn, but if you don’t have permission to post what appears to be rather private pictures of people (from a community that would destroy them if they found out, to boost!), you should definitely not post them.

Cuffs, coughs, guns, traffic, kids, colleges, illegal substances, balloon dances, hikes, $400 cabs, threats of impoverishment, promise of success… It’s been a really fucked up couple of days… And it ain’t over yet!

eretzyisrael:

An unlearned shepherd used to pray by singing, “Dear G-d, if You have sheep, I will care for Your sheep. If You are hungry, I will give You my radishes. If You’re very hungry, I will give You all my radishes.”
A rabbi walked by, and overheard the song. ”Poor man,” thought the rabbi, “No one has ever taught him how to pray.” The rabbi spent the whole afternoon with the shepherd, teaching him the prayers; when to open his eyes, and when to close, when to stand, sit, bow, whisper, etc. 
The shepherd was very grateful, and promised to pray properly from now on.
The next day, however, the shepherd grew very afraid because he couldn’t remember all the details. Rather than pray wrong, he simply did his work.
Up in Heaven, G-d had a terrible day. The universe was scanned, and G-d saw that the shepherd’s prayer was missing.
An angel was dispatched to ask, “Why aren’t you praying?” 
The shepherd explained. The angel brought the shepherd to Heaven, where the entire Heavenly court, with all its myriads of angels, had just begun to pray. 
Singing as only angels can, half the Heavenly host chanted, “Dear G-d, if you have sheep…” And the other half answered, “I will care for your sheep!”
"If you are hungry…""I will give you my radishes!"
The shepherd wept, understanding at last the importance of his prayer, the prayer of his heart.

Believe it or not, I’m not actually going to make fun of this already ridiculous story. I just think it’s interesting to consider how much time is wasted on teaching people how to allegedly relate to a strange omni-being instead of teaching them morals for the real world. You got people who have great devotion to god and god’s perspective, but have zero empathy for the plight of their fellow humans (or even animals). 
Sad waste of time. Though I guess this story could be understood as “the thought that counts”, and that’s a decent lesson for anyone… as long as they’re not too narrow-minded to extrapolate.
