  I can't recall anything that I believe in that people hate, but I hate those overly religious people that take something that's meant to be purely entertaining and exxagerate the one aspect that they can protest.  For instance people said that Harry Potter promoted witchcraft.  If you have ever read the books then you know that the magic in it is not satanistic witchcraft magic; but fun, happy, Santa kind of magic.
  Also, I hate people who force their beliefs on other people.  Like vegetarians who act like non-vegitarians are monsters.  Or christians who keep trying to convert non-christians, a pamphlet is fine, but don't go to people's homes and talk to them.  Also, atheists who act like anybody who believes in anything religious is an idiot.  If you don't believe in God fine.  Just don't be condecending because you think that when you die you just fall forgotten into oblivion.
  Finally, people who act like only white people can be racist.  Or that all white people are racist.  If you don't think that white people can/are offended by terms like cracker, honckey, etc. when not used from a comedic standpoint, you are an idiot.  And if you think that just because a person is white they hate everyone else, you are an idiot.

In fact, I believe in being offended by these things, and some people are offended by that.

You are vegetarian for moral or health reasons?  I for one admire vegetarians, though fond of spring lamb.  How do you feel about liver with fava beans and a nice chianti?

More for moral reasons, if you want to call it that. I was the kid whose father and family hunted, but could not bring myself to take the life of an animal. I guess I was about 21 when I decided to become a vegetarian; more, I just decided not to eat meat, as the term vegetarian is just an easier way to say it than explain it.

As for the Hannibal diet, I have told this joke on here before, and it originated from me having to defend myself, verbally, about being a vegetarian:


I considered cannibalism before I became a vegetarian.
According to cannibals, the palm of the hand is the most delicious part of the human body.
I would, however, absolutely draw the line at anyone who has been to a palm reader.

(Usually followed by a confused look and the question 'why?')

Because I don't like read meat. (say it aloud) TeddyR 



I have been described as an "atheist" more than once, but I think the term "atheist," literally is "against god-religion," and I'm not.  The term is hardly accurate to describe me, particularly as any kind of proselytizer.  I do challenge belief systems but only to determine mettle.   Thumbup  Oh-oh-oh.  Oh!  No karma.

You are correct on the literal translation ('a', however, can simply denote being a polar opposite rather than literally 'against'), though most people take it to mean someone who does not believe in god, so it, like vegetarian, becomes an easy way to say it without having to explain it.

I have generally considered myself more of an agnostic (and talk about a term with various meanings), but have leaned more toward atheism, in basic tenets, in the past few years; so I accept the label.

I am not an atheist ignorant of the church. I was a minister in what I call a previous lifetime; eh, about 23-24 years ago.

The funny thing about the term "cracker" is that so few people actually understand the origin of the term. If you ask people what it refers to, probably 9 out of 10 will say that it's a reference to white people being white like a saltine or something. Ironically enough, it's actually a short version of "whip cracker", of course referring to the guys who beat the slaves. Ironic that a term everyone thinks is a derogatory joke aimed at white people is really a reference to someone in charge. I was always fond of the term "Wonder Bread" myself.  TongueOut

Add one or two more there and you pretty much have about every special interest group covered.

So? What's your complaint?

Oh, it must be so horrible for a white person to be called 'cracker'.

And, what other social barriers exist for whites?

Yes, anybody can be racist. It's pretty shallow for a member of a socially privileged race to whine about it.

English can be so much fun, in using the word "against" one must also think as opposite, or even, leaning against, as the other half of a vault, an opposing and equal force...  Smile

If I was to sign zee papier... it would read "Catholic" a term I embrace not just because of its lower-case meaning, my schooling and culture, but they're also my tribe.  (Religion can be very handy... like at funerals, it gives you something to talk about.)
