The Atheist Experience - Morals, rape & punishment
12/29/10, 17:44

Reducing a penalty for being "unduly harsh" or a "sentencing injustice" isn't mercy, its simply restoring justice. Reducing a "duly harsh" sentence that was justly applied for reasons of compassion would be mercy. Mercy can lead to a more fair/just/societally optimal outcome, without being 'justice'. Of course this depends on specific definitions of justice and mercy that aren't universally agreed upon, but are what the caller was talking about there (suffering proportional to crimes). The point on show's side is not that salvation is bad, but rather that the Christian definition of salvation contradicts justice.

More important is the idea that salvation in the Christian sense isn't about restoration or retribution (although some saints did dedicate their live to making amends or making themselves suffer) but simply loving and obeying God. I was commonly told in Catholic school stories of horrible men who engaged in brutality and accepted God right before their deaths to find the reward of eternal paradise in heaven. While their innocent victims who did not accept God would suffer eternally. Christianity (or most denominations) basically say that all other crimes are insignificant compared to accepting complete control by God.

As the show points out, its a philosophy whereby good people suffer unimaginable torment for being born in the wrong place while horrible people, even if its good that they reform, find no punishment in this life or the next. You could say that knowledge of their own misdeeds will haunt them, but that's not really how heaven is described.

CNN Bizarro Wikileaks Debate
12/28/10, 13:54

This same CNN anchor, Jessica Yellin, in 2008:

When the lead-up to the war began, the press corps was under enormous pressure from corporate executives, frankly, to make sure that this was a war that was presented in a way that was consistent with the patriotic fever in the nation and the president's high approval ratings.

And my own experience at the White House was that, the higher the president's approval ratings, the more pressure I had from news executives -- and I was not at this network at the time -- but the more pressure I had from news executives to put on positive stories about the president.

...yeah, its an improvement.

"kickin them to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger", is like looking for a man as well-adjusted as Michael Jackson. The whole point is he's supposed to have been sexy in spite of his looks.
Fox & Friends segment on prayer
12/20/10, 23:32

"If God exists there's going to be definite effects, changes in people's lives. But of course these studies aren't going to show that."

And that's from the priest. The study's conclusions are even worse. Are these atheists in disguise?

The "states rights" argument now is just as much a sham as it was then. Before the civil war, the South was all about using federal power to take away states rights to choose whether slavery should be legal, up until the second they were no longer in the majority. They passed the Fugitive Slave Act, a massive violation of states rights, just ten years before the civil war began. I can't count the number of times I've had this conversation:

"I'm a small government Glenn Beck conservative/libertarian. I believe in small government and states rights!"

"But weren't you saying just saying that you wanted Christianity taught in schools, citizenship checks at police stops, government power to indefinitely detain suspected terrorists, criminalizing abortions, more police officers and prisons, and more regulation of content on TV and the internet? And didn't you support federal action to stop states from choosing to allow gay marriage, decriminalize marijuana, pass immigration reform and set up comprehensive healthcare reform?"

"Well yeah, but the point is that New York, California and Washington DC are making the federal government too liberal, and we need to restore states rights so that Real Americans are back in charge."

Capitalism = Longer Life

It says if she had been born two centuries earlier she'd have a life expectancy of thirty.

First of all, that's not true. Second, weren't the 1800s the height of unregulated industrial capitalism? It was the financial crises in 1890s, and then the 1930s, that lead to market regulation and the welfare state.
Did an angel save a girl from dying in hospital?

Unless her condition was terrible but stayed the same. In which case the Angels would be visiting to comfort her in a time of suffering.
Fox News: Have You Ever Met An Angel?

If black-haired-guy-who-isn't-the-brown-haired-guy-who-isn't-Steve-Doocy was a lawyer he'd be thrown out of court for leading the witness. He's not even asking questions, he's just prompting the story.

I wonder if he cut it off due to the concluding line: "I've found that the depictions of angels differ, but they all match varying depictions in media and literature."

I'd dispute that he argues against advocacy journalism. I just reread his remarks from that day, and while he criticizes the media for demonizing and distorting opponents in service of their advocacy, there's nothing in their about impassioned and opinionated journalism being bad.

More to the point, advocacy in journalism is a good thing when its done right. There's a difference between describing events and reporting on events, and the latter is essential for a free society. The problem isn't that the news channels have opinions. Its that opinion channels are lacking in actual news.
Glenn Beck: 'Your Rights Come from God'
12/18/10, 15:42

Those rights specifically are "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". You can try walking into the court and demanding those rights be enforced based on the authority of God, but I don't think you're going to have much luck. There's a reason that the actual document we base our rights doesn't include that phrase.

Passionately arguing a position and talking to people who agree with it doesn't make you a Fox News host. In fact its the opposite.

In order to become "a liberal version of a Fox News host", he'd have to pretend to be objective, stack the panel so that the argument was wildly unbalanced, actively lie or misrepresent essential facts, and give his opinion using only open questions and innuendo, rather than committing to solid statement. For example: "Some people are saying that the GOP are blocking the bill to assist Al-Qaeda. But is it actually motivated by racism? With me to discuss this are Bill Maher, Michael Moore and a Tea Party member currently off his medication."

Suzy has two mommies isn't an opinion, its a fact. That's not objecting to liberalism, it's objecting to reality.

Its the same point the Prop 8 ads were making that I never understood. "Oh no, kids will find out in school that gay people exist. We should fight this with as many ads and billboards talking about gay people as possible."

All Conservative radio hosts:
"These liberals don't have real arguments! Whenever we try and have a civil discussion, they just accuse us of racism and bigotry!
(30 seconds later)
...and how dare they tell my kids to be tolerant! Diversity is the cause of all this social tension and crime! The solution is to profile more! We elected a black guy, what more do these people want? With all the tax money we spend on welfare, its like black people are enslaving us! And they're using political correctness to suppress free speech! I have the right to call people ragheads and fags without people getting upset at me!"

Thank you television, for warning me against an addictive, unhealthy,manipulative, mind warping, money draining, soul-crushing, life wasting, sex and violence filled form of mass entertainment that isn't television.

Its broader in meaning than that. For example, Bethell's book "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science" is all about how evolution is fake, global warming is a con, and that AIDS is a fabrication. So it applies to more than just bigotry/racism (except the AIDS bit).
