11 Bizarre Church Laws That Could Send You To Jail

11 Bizarre Church Laws That Could Send You To Jail

Commented Jun 1, 2014 at 11:28:12 in Religion

“I'm sorry, did you learn your argument skills from Fox 'News' or something? The full, in context quote is 'it's still legal in all states for Catholic Church clergy to molest and not have their hierarchy report it to police.' The important part that the original poster was making a point about was the second half about the hierarchy not reporting it to the police. You can't legitimately argue someone's points or statements when you only engage the parts which make your own argument look better. You have to take it all as a whole or don't bother.”

“Because it's easier. Because it allows those in power to maintain the status quo and doesn't threaten the overall power structure of patriarchy and hegemonic masculinity. And most of all, it keeps the perpetrators from being punished. It's an institutional problem.”

“White privilege is not the only kind there is. Even a black person can have other types of privilege that a white person might not. Part of the problem is we keep looking at things in terms of black and white (literally). We ignore the intersection of other factors that influence people's lives. This doesn't negate the existence or the effects of white privilege though.”

“Okay, this sounds like a great idea and all, but... 'what lifts the skirt?' Really? I hope that's just a poor translation. Other than that, rock on, I guess.”

“Some concepts are really difficult to translate. Perhaps it's more similar to the Skirt Uprising?”

Atheissimo on May 15, 2014 at 06:13:51

“Poor translation.

It's more along the lines of 'raise' as in 'increase the status of', rather than physically lift!”

“There were no libraries within walking or public transit distance of my house when I was growing up. Where I live now the nearest public library is all the way downtown. I have a car, and as a grad student can take the bus for free in my city, but what about those who can't? That's money that many can't afford. And let's not forget the budgetary armageddon most libraries are facing these days, especially in the face of such increased demand for their services. Libraries are left with less to offer to more and more people in need.”

“The fact that you don't know what the word 'socialization' means in this context is proof that your education has failed you. Socialization, in this context, means the influence that society has on someone. Things like enforced gender roles, the cultural bias against women in STEM fields and classes, the concept of 'women's work' vs. 'men's work,' and so on.”

“While I agree with what you're saying, your premise is flawed. The pledge was made up by a capitalist looking to sell flags during a surge of nationalism, it has nothing to do with the government. Not the best thing to base this kind of argument on.”

jgthomas on Apr 28, 2014 at 22:33:47

“The history of the pledge is the past. IT was indeed made to sale flags.But it was steal meant to have meaning. The meaning allowed the flags to sale. But the fact is that it was adopted as the national pledge and most of america does not bother to look into the history of the...well anything. The pledge has lost for most the stigma of its capitalism history and is nothing more then that pledge that they have to say in school and wish they didn't.
The current reality is that it does have something to do with the government seeing that it is officially adopted as the national pledge.”

“The problem with amending the constitution is that it's a serious proposition; a method of last resort. And also it's so difficult as to be next to impossible in today's political climate. If something is put into the constitution that has negative consequences... there's no way around it. You can't rule the constitution unconstitutional and stop enforcing it. The only way to fix the problem would be with another amendment, which would be unlikely to come any sooner than a generation or two later.”

“They said the same thing about Prohibition. Than when it was to be repealed they figured it would take a decade or more.... took one year. As difficult as it may be to do, there's nothing wrong with giving it a shot, and enough people are pissed over money being equated to protected free speech, amending the Constitution to make it clear that money is NOT the type of speech which is protected sounds as if it's something most of the people would approve of.. But your correct in that getting such a thing to happen is next too impossible. Too many politicians are getting their pockets lined because of rulings like this. Why would they honestly want all that to stop?”

“The problem (as I see it, anyway) isn't that girls are wearing these things. Who the hell do you think you are to police other people's bodies like that? What right do you have to pass judgement on what someone else wants to do with their own bodies, or how they feel about them? Nobody, that's who, so back your nose out of their business. No, the problem is that school is (or at least SHOULD be) a semi-professional environment and the students should be required to dress accordingly. Schools are supposed to be preparing students for the adult world and you can't go around flashing your junk in a professional environment.”

“Actually, yes it is how that works. All income is taxable. Ever see the little box on your 1040 for putting down "illegal income"? You wont get audited by the IRS for not claiming your 50 cents, but you could use it to get a refund.....

As for "unlicensed" lemonade stands, I thought those were illegal now too?
