Firstly, I wasn't online earlier when something came onto the news that really incensed me. I'm not sure if I should post this, because of the language, but I'm going to. Anyhow ...
Subject: Go to Hell
I apologise for my language in advance. If you choose to read this, you’ll understand why I’m so angry.
Hatred has a new face: Amrozi. I am sick of seeing his smiling face on TV. This arsehole took part in the Bali terrorist attacks last year that killed something like 180 or 200 people, and what does he do? Gloats and smiles! It’s awful, fucking awful. This man killed people and he’s happy about it! Amrozi, go fuck yourself, I’m sick of seeing your bloody heartless grin on TV. And shut up with your rants in the court. Don’t you bloody well understand what you’ve done? PEOPLE ARE DEAD, YOU MORON, AND YOU’RE TO BLAME! YOU KILLED PEOPLE! DON’T YOU FEEL ANY BLOODY REMORSE AT ALL YOU HEARTLESS FUCKING CREEP?
I am thankful the people I know who were over in Bali at the time weren’t at that club that was bombed. I know people who’d been to that club not long before it was bombed. People I know came within days of being killed. I remember the footage on TV of the wounded, I remember the footage of the relatives wracked by grief, I remember the search for bodies being broadcast on the news, I remember it all, and it was AWFUL. Any human with any heart at all would be ripped in two by what happened. It was awful, terrible, upsetting, and dreadful. AND YET YOU, AMROZI, HAVE THE NERVE TO SMILE AND LAUGH ABOUT IT! YOU ARE A CREEP, YOU ARE THE FUCKING SCUM OF THE EARTH! When they put your stupid bloody smiling face on the front of the newspaper, I almost bloody threw up. It was sickening. Don’t you have a heart? Don’t you feel any remorse? PEOPLE ARE DEAD, YOU IGNORAMUS! Wake up to reality and stop acting like this is all some cocked-up bloody computer game! If I see your bloody smiling face on TV one more time, I might throw up. You are SCUM, you are a horrible, terrible person, and you don’t deserve to live. May God give you the punishment you deserve, you wretched, awful, despicable little flea. You’re in the same class as despotic morons such as Hitler and Stalin.
There, I’m done.
Now, onto other stuff ....
Earlier today, I was one one messageboard - RPG Central, at http://com3.akheva.com/brpgcentral. - and was specifically on the thread 'Girls, what do you look for in guys, and guys what do you look for in girls?', at http://com3.akheva.com/brpgcentral.fdiscussion.t6. The fourth post, by Fisher of Kids, got me really incensed. Here now is my uncensored rant about looks.
What the orange MacPhisto is up with people these days? I'm SICK AND BLOODY TIRED of people putting looks first. I'm sick of people deciding they like someone just because he/she is 'hot' or 'has a good butt' or whatever. It's bloody revolting, and I'm sick of it. How fucking shallow do you want to get? OK, looks do factor in a bit, seeing you do have to actually look at people, but the way people place it first, go out with people just because of their looks, lust after good looking people, and so forth is bloody sickening and revolting and it makes me want to throw up. Get some maturity you dickheads and get the fuck out of your prepubescient state. Can you possibly handle having some depth for a change instead of being bloody shallow?
Good Zooropa, I am sick to death of guys at school stopping midsentence to watch some girl go by. DON'T THEY BLOODY GET IT? Can't they stop lusting for one second? STOP BEING SO BLOODY SHALLOW! It's so prepubescient, so immature, so revolting, and it needs to STOP! It seems like general society is one horny little teenager looking for a screw. Turn on TV, and products are being sold by putting some good-looking woman in practically no clothes on the ad. What the SDABTO does a scantily clad female have to do with CORNFLAKES AND TOOTHBRUSHES? I would desperately love to know, because I see no logical bloody connection right now.
Right now, I wish - almost as much as I wish I was at a U2 concert - that people would simply grow up and stop judging people on how they look. It's so revolting and prepubescient, as I have said, and all it shows is how shallow the moron is. You have these people jumping into relationship after relationship with others just because the person looks good, and then they wonder a couple of weeks later why it all fell apart. It's pretty bloody obvious to me. How the orange MacPhisto do you expect a relationship to work if you're in it for shallow reasons, like because the girl looks good and because you want to have sex with her? No bloody wonder so many relationships fall apart these days: people act so fucking shallow. You have these lewd old men getting horny over girls barely out of teenagehood, and you simply have to wonder "Where the Zooropa did we go wrong? How did we end up with old men with the maturity of a 12 year old boy?"
The world just drives me insane with its insane shallowness and inability to get itself through puberty. Get an ounce of maturity, and, while you're at it, find some morals and learn to spell.
This (and it's not random, let me explain) leads me to my next point: Christians. One reason why I think the world has become so bloody shallow is because of organised 'Christian' denominations. These stupid prats act so judgemental, with their salvation-judging, people-damning, self-righteous displays of arrogance, and so when they pull the Bible out, people just get more annoyed and run. No wonder we've had a decline in morals, because people have lost respect for things that teach morals, such as the Bible, because some stupid bloody prats have gone and tarnished its reputation.
I bloody well had my salvation doubted earlier on this evening (wow, it's morning now, so I better say yesterday). Don't believe me? Go to http://snottitude.proboards20.com/index.cgi?board=narrowdiscussion&num=1057692421&action=display&start=30 and read on from my post, number 36. Baptist Bible Believer dared to question my salvation. Where the MOFO does he get off with doing that? What doesn't he get about 'YOU SIMPLY DO NOT DOUBT SOMEONE'S SALVATION'? Is he an omniscient being? No, he bloody well isn't, so how the MacPhisto can he know whether I'm saved or not? Only God knows that, and my salvation is a matter between me and God and ME AND GOD ALONE, not something for him to meddle in. He can go take his self-righteous holier-than-thou arrogance somewhere else. He can play the Pharisee, but not around me.
No wonder people hate Christianity. There are stupid dickwads like BBB walking around passing judgement on every little bloody thing. "OoOo, He SeD a NoUtE wUrD!!!!11!!@!1 hE iZ sO dAmMeD!!!!!122@#!!!1" I'm bloody well sick of it. Just because someone thinks swearing is OK or lets off a bit of anger or doesn't cover themselves up Muslim-style like you want them to or doesn't believe the Rapture is going to be Pre-Tribulation doesn't mean they're some evil heathen who's on a one-way trip to Hell. Some Christians need to come back down to Earth and realise that they aren't God (thank God they aren't!) and can't go throwing their stupid bloody self-righteous judgemental crap at every unfortunate soul who crosses their path.
There we go, I think I'm done. Wow, we go from Amrozi through looks to Christianity. Fascinating.
Oh! I finally got a reply from Focus on the Family. About 4 or 5 days ago, I sent them an e-mail regarding their shameful U2 reviews that I posted my rebuttals of. Their response actually made me laugh. Now there is no statement of confidentiality and as the person who initiated the conversation, I do not see a problem with me posting this here. However, if someone points out why me posting this is unethical or not right, then I will edit this post.
Anyhow, here is my e-mail. I sent it just after I read their reviews and I was struggling to keep calm and be diplomatic. Thus, I do not feel what I said came out well at all. Nonetheless, here it is;
"Customer (Andre Withoutalastname) - 07/04/2003 07:28 AM
I was just directed to your reviews of the band U2 by a friend of mine, and I am unimpressed. Extremely unimpressed. You should seriously reconsider having those reviews on your website, because they person who wrote them obviously has no understanding of the message the lyricist (Bono) is trying to promote, nor the message he is trying to get across, nor the symbolism he is using.
As a dedicated U2 fan who has at least some understanding of the symbolism of their songs and the messages being promoted by the band, I would be glad to review more of U2 for you. However, whether you would consider that or not is beside the point. Your reviews of the band are inaccurate and are providing people with an extremely flawed impression of a marvellous band. I am
particularly appalled by one statement where the author of one review even called Bono's salvation into question.
Thank you for your time.
Their response reads as follows;
"Response (Name censored by myself for privacy reasons) - 07/08/2003 02:19 PM
Thank you for your thoughtful response to our Youth Culture staff's reviews of U2.
We want you to know that your feelings and opinions are important to our publications staff. Our editorial crew is constantly striving to stay aware of and be sensitive to our readers’ viewpoints and tastes, but they can’t do it without your input.
If we could leave you with one thought, it would be this: our goal is not to “lay down the law” concerning specific bands, artists, or musical styles, but to encourage you to do some serious thinking of your own about the music you listen to – paying special attention to the message communicated in the lyrics. A
helpful motto to keep in mind is “Learn to Discern!” One Scripture reference that might give you some guidelines for that kind of thoughtful evaluation is Philippians 4:8 which says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think
about such things.” Some related verses are Psalm 101:2-4, Romans 12:1-2, I Corinthians 6:9-11, and Galatians 5:16-25.
Thanks again for taking the time to express your views.

Sure, I'll follow Philippians 4:8 - I'll focus on and think about whatever is true, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy, and that happens to include U2. Note that they dodged most of my accusations, particularly giving;
1. No response to how I was appalled at Bono's faith being questioned.
2. And no response to how I said their interpretations were flawed and inaccurate.
Very amusing. Now I think I'll go reply to them and tell them a few things, like what I said just before in regards to Philippians 4:8. I'd like to hear some other thoughts, particularly yours, Sarah.
Well now, I think I may've typed the update box thingy to death. Go me. I would download one of those client things ... but I got confused when I went to get one. Me and computers sometimes do not go well together.
Oh, by the way, I know it may seem like I'm stealing your sayings, Sarah, and trying to copy you, but honestly, I'm not. Just whenever I read a new one, like "What the Popmart?" I crack up, think 'Why didn't I come up with that one earlier?', and can't help but use it because I like it. Just thought I'd clarify that.
