The Portland culture


This is the Portland "homeless meeting" outside city hall. You would think they could focus some of this energy on being more self-sufficient...

2 Thessalonians
verses 6 -9
Our orders—backed up by the Master, Jesus—are to refuse to have anything to do with those among you who are lazy and refuse to work the way we taught you. Don't permit them to freeload on the rest. We showed you how to pull your weight when we were with you, so get on with it. We didn't sit around on our hands expecting others to take care of us. In fact, we worked our fingers to the bone, up half the night moonlighting so you wouldn't be burdened with taking care of us. And it wasn't because we didn't have a right to your support; we did. We simply wanted to provide an example of diligence, hoping it would prove contagious.

Oh Please Daniel...do you really want to turn this blog into a scripture swap? There's verse after verse after verse to support the opposite view as well, many of them directly from Jesus. The verse you provided is not, it is the opinion of the person who wrote this particular gospel.

What a moron.

Wake me up when the scripture swap is over.

Apparently, from the vernacular of the verse, you're quoting from the Reconstituted Universal GenX Version of the Holy Bible.

Try King James or the New International Version, it's a little less cartoonish.

Paul wrote 1st and 2nd Thesselonians. He was a man, with opinions to share. We must not forget the Bible was written by MEN.

That being said, Paul is right in my opinion. To be sure, every able man and woman should be working to earn their keep. You'll have a hard time to find anyone who argues that.

This does not justify cruelty and smugness towards the least of our brothers Miglavs. Would you like a Bible verse that covers that, something straight from the mouth of Jesus?

What a joke. Daniel, you are a fool.

Miglavs: Im going to ridicule every socio-economic-racial group I can think of, mock efforts towards more responsible stewardship of the planet that GOD entrusts in our care, and suggest uninsured people just crawl off and die so my taxes can go towards bombs and shit, and then Im going to find a Bible verse to justify all of it, F0R I AM GOOD. The Bible tells me so.

Welcome to Miglavia...

Now if you look to the left, just at the foot of the hill, you can see that foundation work has begun for the new Miglavian Temple of Self-Righteousness.

Soon, the bronze statue of our leader will be erected in the square...

Buuuuwaahaahaahaahaahaahaahaahaa!

In the real world, the Bible is a source of inspiration and spiritual wisdom for human beings of all political persuasions and religions, used in the advancement of love and compassion towards others.

In Miglavia, the Bible is a boot you use to kick others in the groin with. Preferably, others who are less fortunate than you are.

Welcome to Miglavia.

If people want to use drugs and alcohol fine, if they are adults.
But why oh why am I to pay for it?
Why should any of us have to pay for the irresponsible?
Most "homeless" want to be that way, untrusting of bosses or the government.
Be homeless, be a drunk or doper, you have that choice.
But do NOT expect me to pay for your choice.

Anon, You will pay for it whether you like it or not. If you don't like it, take yourself somewhere else. That is what is great about Oregon, the anti-tax anti-social program goons are left to stew in their own smelly juices.

As I sees it said...

Thessalonians? More like a new age right-wing hate-your-neighbor version. This is really good to see though. It shows how Right-wing Wannabe KKKristians think and their manipulations of scriptures. These are the people that should be deported.

When is Daniel going to quote some scripture about Republican Baby Killer Mike Erickson?

Are you Bringin' Mugwump Back? said...

The ballot for Oregon Repubicans is funny this year. I wonder how many are going to bring Mugwump back for '08? My Dad swears to.

John McCain, Environment First, Pro-Illegal Alien Amnesty, Close Gitmo.

Mike Erickson Pro-Abortion Womanizing Baby Killer.

Kevin Mannix, Pro-Taxation for ALL RINO.

To the rapidly expanding list of things that Daniel Miglavs does not understand, add: The Bible.
