The anti-war movement plays on public ignorance too

The anti-war movement depends heavily on the arrogance of it's protestors. There's people all over the world actively working to make things better and these anti-war assholes are proud of themselves because they're spending their days standing on the side of a fucking road holding up signs to people who are driving to work and making no difference. Fucking really!?

He's actually playing with the words "prays" and "preys". I assure you he did it on purpose to fit the message he is trying to convey :) If you think about the subject matter you may understand why ;)

Misspelling a word is not crazy however disagreeing with "everything" might be construed as such... I hope this is not the case ;)

Groucho Marx sang "Whatever it is, I'm against it". Great line in satires. Eerie in real life...

I think it's much easier for me since she's not in front of me... Her reasoning also got so off base that I felt it was best not to respond anymore... I'm actually saddened that she was unable to grasp the context of the sign and the conversation she and I were having. Her relationships will be quite difficult I fear :(

You're a very gracious, patient man to have held your composure over such "comments" by this "young" lady who obviously doesn't understand the world in which she lives. Kudos to you! :)

Not so sure I could have done the same to someone who said, "stop hounding me" :lol: Geesh!

people saying that I am crazy is not typically considered friendly...at least for the vast majority of people.
Just take the photo complement and stop hounding me.

I'm not what the guy was trying to say, but if it was intended to be a play on words, he should've chosen different phrasing. As it is, it comes off as a delicious sort of irony for my conservative self.

it is a play on the word... when you spell it certain ways it means diffrent things...

Pray means: To utter or address a prayer or prayers to God, a god, or another object of worship.

prey means: To victimize or make a profit at someone else's expense.

Since Gorge acts like he is such a man of the lord but is really an evil person taking advantage of people, it is a funny play on the two words ;)

Well, I'm not a liberal because I don't even know what Americans mean by "liberal" or "conservative"... but I absolutly agree with the message of your (very nice) photo. And I also find AvengedRevelation's reaction a bit surprising : why are you guys talking about poor Jesus here ? Can't you just let him out of the problem ? Politic opinions and religions don't have anything to do together. If they do, then your land will turn into a theocracy...

digitalgrace Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2005
I am unsure where you are from but our land is already a theocracy. Some people like to say we are not or say why we should not, but we are! ~AvengedRevelation is a very young man and has his young views. I am just challenging them. I do not believe that poor Jesus is the son of god, but I have nothing against him. I would not call myself a liberal or conservative either, my political beliefs are more rooted in the libertarian party. I believe in freedom and more freedom. I would like to thank you for the kind comment.

I come from France, so by the way I believe in the "liberty, egality, fraternity" stuff. And I thought that to be frenchy AND to claim that America is a theocracy would be... quite bad for my public relations on this website. I'm very very sad for your country, which was such a great symbol of tolerance and freedom... seems like the american dream had been killed by a small minority of bloody greedy dirigeants who're practicing interference as a hobby.
Anyway !
Your photos are really good, and so's your message. Keep on !

Jesus and I really do not get along that well but I am glad he makes you happy ;) I also want you to know the world is so much more dynamic then anything you can label as Conservative or Liberal and I certainly do not label myself as either. You are a young man and can not even come close to comparing the experiences you have in life to the experiences I have had. Trust me that during the course of your life you will change your mind on many ideals you hold so dear today. Do not get too stuck in your way as this prohibits growth.

BTW If you see Jesus Christ anytime soon tell him to give me a gander, we have some catching up to do. Maybe he and I can go out for a few brews ;)


all my :love: to you my friend :heart:

Sure ill tell jesus that hey can you remind St. Michel to give me back my x box please?... Yeah my ideals probably will change and i will pray for you hopefully you wont be forgotten when the times comes and the light hits you... You've got to be something in this world... Communist, Democrat, Republican. christian somthing or maybe more than one...

If you dont vote than you have no saying here... think about that. I respect you but i will not respect your ways. Im not sure if you vote or voted before but why do so many people protest even though they dont vote or they want your country to fight but then later say why are we over there? Like in the rewanda thing , people say why we didint do anything and bitch and if we did then they would still say somthing and bitch even more, why?
