    Yet another red flag about Facebook for allowing this game.

    It amazes me people still use that godawful site.

    Let them hit us, abuse us, torture us, even kill us.
    At the end only we are going to win.
    Because, we have something they don't have...LOVE
    Because, they have something we don't have...HATRED.

    & the eternal truth is that, Love never ever even once failed to conquer and win over hate.

    There seems to be some confusion as to whether this game actually is mocking the anti-gay priests. Some responders in Georgia say it is actually PRO-gay. I dunno, if so they apparently deal with a different logic set than I do.

    In any case, Facebook's response still makes no sense, since either way this should be a violation of their hate prohibitions.

    I have 'shared' the FB page on my FB profile along with an explanation and asking why it's on FB. I also reported it. Hopefully my friends on FB will also report it. Numbers of complaints count. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, they've had issues recently with gay rights in the Caucasus.
    Taburetka means "stool" in Russian...

    So the game specifically targets women in modern dress (skirts that expose the calves and sleeveless tops), momons, and lesbians. Looks like a form of hate-speech to me. If it were balanced, targeting traditional orthodox people and clergy along with modern peoples, then it would be balanced. But clearly it portrays non-orthodox as worthy of death, and the orthodox as the heros who pull the trigger.

    That made me laugh. You must be new to the forums to have made this statement. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    We will win because as more and more people become educated more and more people will come to know this is a human rights issue. Ignorance, superstition and blind following of religious authority (or any authority for that matter) are the enemies of human progress.

    I said what I want to say, I know before posting that comment, it is quite extreme & some of them will considered it as weird. But, if I don't express myself to the fullest, I'm restricting freedom to myself...So, I thought for a while & I thought 'who cares?' and then clicked on the Submit button.
    BTW,
    More & more people educated?
    may I know what's the literacy rate of America's?
    People are carried away with the word 'education' and each person is considering their own interpretation. I think what you and any of you should have to say is 'Moral Education'
    This is the education that America is lacking and it is extremely poor of compassion due to negligence of this type of education & sadly countries like India, China & many more are following your footsteps.
    Sorry, No Offense, some of my comments may look very offensive, but I never intend to offend anyone.

    More than 99%.
    I don't think that India and china, etc, are necessarily following in their footsteps. Every society has prejudices.

    Education is not just literacy (reading and writing). And if you are going to quote me, don't do it out of context.

    The central point of my response was that there is no more love in the gay community than there is in the heterosexual community. I think the way people behave in these forums bears witness to that. The gay community holds no claim on the moral high ground. We are not some morally superior race. Sorry.

    Ok, as I said before, I'm sorry.
    But what I meant is, I used the word in a more broader context...If we have to discuss about it...it's going to take a long time.
    Trying to be as short as possible
    They hate us, and hate never works...
    Of course, I've seen many others who are gays filled with hate...often hate each other. but together as a community quite negligible in my opinion compared to them.
    I was telling from personal experience.
    I don't think that there is no love, there's always. People hate each other because they don't know how to love. If one can teach them why and how, they'll surely don't reject it.
    This is also speaking from personal experience.

    I use this when I teach about LGBT inclusion efforts in the church:

    Hurt people
    hurt people

    We are disproportionally damaged by what we've been through, and it is reflected in the way we treat each other. Layer that on a society where many men are socialized to believe aggression and competitiveness are the ideal male traits and every situation has a winner and a loser, and you have a lot of walking wounded who compensate for it by lashing out at anyone who challenges them or ignites these negative feelings from the past. Doesn't make it right, but it's not a mystery either.

    Ah, but Love flickers like candlelight and then it dies.
    And Hate is the shadow cast by the flame.

    It pains me to say that love is snuffed out quite often, and quite easily. Just look at the divorce rates, for instance. If Love and hate are an equillibrium, the balance is most certainly swaying in Hate's favor at this juncture in time.

    The more of us [Humans] there are, the stronger Hate will become. It will fester and grow like a cancerous tumor threatening to spill its bile.
    Human life is fucking cheap. We're a renewable resource, and nothing more.

    Why? It's simple; Because Human life becomes less and less valuable as time goes on... remember that we are approaching the seven billion mark. Our time is very, very near. Like any resource, we depreciate in value the more of us there are.

    There is solace in the fact that, objectively, this isn't even a bad thing.
    We are a shitting, pissing, locust-like disease. A plague on this earth that should have gone extinct well over a millenia ago. And yet here we are, quite literally wallowing in our own feces, seemingly exempt from any Darwinian notion of natural selection, as we have synthetically wormed our way out of the food chain. Now we have, in our excess, become a diseased, deformed caricature of what we once were -- not to mention slaves to our own devices.

    Very soon, Human beings will suffer (like they deserve), and then die. My only hope is that I can be there to witness it.
