It's true the church sucks, i've never seen one that was on the right track. From the very first church to the most recent ones they've all been wrong. The New Testament is filled with how messed up churches are, and what not to do in future churches
new churches still continue to screw up

'i've never seen one that was on the right track'
Don't you see that's where religion falls down completely? If the person in charge of a church, or any religious group says some you agree with- then you think they're on the right track. if they speak/act in a fashion that you don't - they are on the wrong track.
Except none of that makes any sense when religion claims to know the absolute truth. If religion was true (any of them) they should, by definition be perfect and it should be impossible to go on the wrong track - just that this entirely possible (and does happen) with every religion.
now a typical response to this would be that 'that's because of humans' - well there you go! humans made religion to fit there beliefs - not one attributed to the divine, otherwise, like i said, it would be impossible for religion to steer off to 'the wrong path'

Anything good in life is something you have to fight for.
We didn't make religion an easy thing to fit our beliefs to make us happy and secure in our ways. If we did Christianity wouldn't exist and we'd have the fornicate 24/7 and kill anyone who makes you angry religion.
Also relgion by definition is made specifically for those who steer off path. Jesus specifically bypasses the good people to go hang out with the drunks, prostitutes, and thieves, etc.
And as far as "off the path" goes, the core belief of most religions is love. Love God in Christianity and you are good, all the "rules" are just there for man to keep that love pure and keep man from hurting himself.

'Anything good in life is something you have to fight for.' - i agree with you there; the problem comes when different people define 'good' differently.
'We didn't make religion an easy thing to fit our beliefs' - u've kinda just conceded that religions was created by man to control (for right or wrong is not relevant)
yep christianity wouldn't exist
'we'd have the fornicate 24/7 and kill anyone who makes you angry religion.' that's not true - and that's a very low and narrow opinion of human behaviour (that's actually the same thing Hobbes, a philosopher, said we'd be like if we didn't give in to an absolute power - namely an absolute monarchy which is what you're proposing we do just replacing the monarchy with 'god').
while it is true that some humans are 'bad' - that doesn't mean we all are completely bad. That's a simplistic black and white view - people are always in the grey. The large majority of people recognise that not killing/raping each other is better for us, mutually because we aren't harming each other - therefore it's a win win situation.
Also, people recognise that that their actions affect themselves, others, and by extension - their actions can provoke actions from somebody else.
So to say that's what we'd be like is very unfair. Mankind's state of nature is far more complex than just the simple 'kill, survive, sex. command. Yes it's in us, but that's not all that's there - in fact there are far more positive things. (Btw you saying that would be what we're like without religion goes against the 'God made us pure' argument).
And If there weren't these other things in us- how would you even recognise that religion has some good values in the first place?

'Also relgion by definition is made specifically for those who steer off path.'
Is that to say that if i'm a 'good' person i don't need religion? you see it's not making sense. Yes, religion is supposed to bring people on to the good path, but then why does it lead people to the wrong one as well? Crusades anyone?
Why does religion that demands it stay fixed get to decide what people are likely for all time? I mean even the bible doesn't have as much relevance now, as it did at it's inception.
'And as far as "off the path" goes, the core belief of most religions is love. Love God in Christianity and you are good, all the "rules" are just there for man to keep that love pure and keep man from hurting himself.'
-that's entirely up to opinion - because love is different to different people - and you can't claim that 'love' (an abstract idea) is only pure under your religion (again, because it's entirely subjective).
'keep man from hurting himself' - Yet the religion commonly is against euthanasia - which is to prevent pain. Also, if god really did want us not to hurt ourselves - why give us the ability for pain in the first place? and before you even say 'so that we aren't ignorant of it/ so that we know the opposite' - again, God is guaranteeing both to happen.
Apparently God isn't very fitting for the 'perfect' title he supposedly holds....
Better yet why create us in the first place? If it's for us to worship him - what kind of low self esteemed god do we have?! OO if he's so perfect why is he bothered by so many small things - like whether or not i masturbate
To me he sounds incredibly human - and not so high and mighty religion portrays him as.
why does he have a human level of understanding? espeacially considering he's supposed to be so far beyond us ¬¬
Even better - why does he expect us to understand what he wants us to do yet create us so far below him? thats very unfair coming from something thats supposed to be the best judge in existence.

They aren't saying how the importances line up. They are just showing more 'important' jobs to contrast how crazy being an artist can be.
I think this is just a way to make people understand that artists have a lot of hardship facing them and shouldn't be expected to do a bunch of crap for free because it's not like a 'real' job.

Drone strikes have drastically less collateral than more conventional means. There's a reason they're also known asprecision strikes.
#15 - nandaaz (08/14/2013) [-]
Uhm... Ordering more drone strikes has NOTHING to do with Obama's or Bush's impact on the country/world... Bush fucked up a few wars and the economy, and Obama tries to help the economy and such but gets blocked by the opposition...
In the meantime everyone whines about how Obama screws up even though he hasn't made anything worse....
#98 - samael (08/21/2013) [-]
Well if you can live with the fact that your government has reached the point where they execute US citizens with drones then suit yourself. And by the way...Less than 2% of the people killed by drone strikes have been "high profile targets". The other 98% were civilians including a LOT of children and simple combatants. And killing first responders in double taps is clearly a war crime. So yeah... I think the image of the USA has suffered drastically under Bush AND Obama thanks but not limited to drone strikes.
#101 - samael (08/21/2013) [-]
Btw the American mainstream media isn't really famous for being too critical about their government.
