Rain on the Just and the Unjust

Day 2,193, 00:19 Published in USA USA by Ronald Gipper Reagan

Dear Friends,

I wanted to write you all some words of encouragement, and to give a status update on where we are right now. I think it is first that we remember these sacred words, because they are indeed true. You and I know we stand for what is just and right, and like all people who have done so from the beginning of time, there are those who seek to persecute and destroy that light, but that light shines within us, and it must shine every brighter as things seem darker.

I have dealt with this for a long time. No leader or aspiring leader is perfect. God chose David despite all his flaws to lead the Kingdom of Israel. Like David, or any other, I have my flaws, as do we all, but what truly counts is what is in our hearts. We see people in the eWorld participating in actions which are designed simply to try to bully or harm others in some way. It is truly sad that this is what our society has sunk to.

I suppose it is to be expected though. Despite all the great leaps in technology, medicine, and civic rights, look what evils still exist in the world today. It is a world where the butchery of unborn children is masqueraded as "choice" and protected by the governments of nations which claim to stand for liberty and justice. It is a world where endangered species are poached to extinction and the Earth is treated with disrespect(and no, not talking about the giant scam of so-called man-made climate change). It is a world where people routinely committing evil acts, whether it be from the giant concentration camp of insanity known as North Korea which threatens our friends in the South as well as the United States itself, radical Islamists commit acts of terror and seek to exterminate once thriving Christian communities from entire regions , or just people who go out of their way to hurt others(far more than you'd think!). But despite all that evil there is still good, and those who wish to do it.

Those of us here, in the American Freedom Alliance or whatever other name we go by, and those who stand with us strive to do good. Having gotten to know many of you at length, I can say with confidence that there are a lot of benevolent people in our corner, both off-game and on-game. The issues we deal with in eRepublik may seem trivial by comparison, but there is still a principle to it. Let's look at the situation we are in.

For the past six months they have stolen our party, but each time we get back up and rise again. Some of you were here in past years when the same thing happened. They don't want to play nice. They were absent that day in Kindergarten when they were supposed to learn how to share They want to use hatred, intimidation, and griefing tactics to try to get those who disagree with them to give up. We are not broken so easily. We believe that people have a right to be free. We have a right to be free from political persecution, excessive taxation, poor leadership forced upon us, harassment, and the good name of our country being dragged through the mud by the very people who are a part of that problem in real life too.

You can look at what my/our detractors will post in the comments below. You can read their hate-laced articles. You can look at the new citizen message which is proposed to target us. You can see how the rules they make only apply when it is convenient, like letting Benedict Pfeiffer back in. You know what, the bottom line is, there is good and there is evil. The way these people conduct themselves is downright evil. Even good people are flawed, make mistakes, and try to atone for them, then there are those who direct much of their energy in a negative light towards others with malevolent intent.

In the end, as the good book says, the sun rises on the evil and the good, and rains on the righteous and the unrighteous.


PS-

Isn't this the fourth month in a row you've said something about the political module being changed by the admins?

I suppose if you keep it up, eventually you'll be right.

However, your quote of
and how exactly are you going to PTO my party whent he political module changes to prevent domestic PTO's?

oopssssssss, didn't see that coming did ya?


We got Empires and Determination. I doubt we'll get a major overhaul of the political system that allows political parties to deny people membership.

Then again, that's how you survive, isn't it? Stack a party with newbs and have allies stack it with Empty Suits (read: multi's) and pray you get into the Top 5.

There is a mountain of evidence of this, but even if it were presented, you'd of course deny it, using the Shaggy defense, despite your verbal admission to having knowledge of it being done and being involved in the deployment of illegitimate accounts.

Ever notice how RGR practically uses guerilla warfare when he tries to denounce us?

Insults us
His argument is squashed
He doesn't reply but then proceeds to go spew bull at other normal people

The rain it raineth on the just, and on the unjust fella,
but more so on the just, cause the unjust has the just's umbrella!

Unborn children is like saying land fish. It's just something that doesn't happen by DEFINITION. It is a child once it is born, before that it is medically referred to as a fetus.

Human-caused climate change is not a scam. If it was, the guy who discovered that would write up his paper and win a Nobel Prize for it. Have you done that?

"They were absent that day in Kindergarten when they were supposed to learn how to share They want to use hatred"
And you were absent the day they taught how to use capital letters. Aside from that, that is like attacking the ATF for stealing rocket launchers from civilians.

"In the end, as the good book says" You mean this good book? "Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death."(Exodus 21:15) Pretty straightforward, you call this the good book and it allows parents to kill their children for having a tantrum. You are one of the most horrible people I have ever shared words with.

Well, be ashamed that a 14 years old has a lot more clue than you with around the double of his age. Seriously you should really be ashamed and do a reflection about it. Oh wait... I forgot you don't have enough brain cells to reach a legitimate conclusion.

"Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death."(Exodus 21:15)
"you call this the good book and it allows parents to kill their children for having a tantrum."

Ummm that really isn't what it says at all... I don't know why you have to attack the religion itself when clearly it is RGR the person that is the problem here. He is clearly insane and, as a Christian myself, I don't particularly appreciate pretty much anything he says and likely hold a very different view of my own. I just don't appreciate you slandering my religion in the name of trying to attack RGR. If you want to attack him, attack him for being a delusional lunatic comparing himself to the likes of Jesus Christ and David. Everyone should just keep religion out of eRep. This isn't RL so why bring RL into the game? Anyways, that's all I had to say.

lancer450
lancer450 Day 2,195, 01:43

Anyways, yes the Bible does say "He who strike his father or his mother shall surely be put to death... He who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death." (Exodus 21:15,17) However, the Mosaic Law was for God’s covenant people, Israel, living in a theocracy. The Old Testament Law is not in force today. It was in place for a specific reason at that time and it wasn't as simple as throwing a tantrum that was the sin. The sin the verses are talking about had to be ongoing and continuous and deep-seated, and the punishment was only meant for extreme cases. And guess what? The Bible actually never recorded this law being enforced... EVER. So, actually, it isn't as straightforward as you say it is. Perhaps you should do some research and contextualise before making such a claim.

DylanBAS
DylanBAS Day 2,195, 07:03

So if a child repeatedly struck his parents and could not be stopped, they would kill him. Still morally horrible. There is NO context in which that is justified.

My point is about him calling something the good book when it even permits such things. If you don't like that example, try on the verse about you can have slaves AS PROPERTY and may beat them so long as they don't die within the next few days. There is also no context in which that is okay either.

Syz2
Syz2 Day 2,195, 12:46

The bible often refers to death in a non-literal sense. This is one of those many cases. Death can be interpreted as losing salvation from sin.

lancer450
lancer450 Day 2,195, 12:04

Again, you have not researched the context of the verse. It does matter what the context is. It is not children, as in they are not 5 year olds, that the verse is talking about. It was more so adolescent and adult "children." God commanded that children, adult children, to honour their parents by caring for them in their old age for example. For a "child" in those times to throw his parents out on the street would be a sin, it would be against the law. And if the child repeatedly refused to care for his parents and it was so extreme at the point where the parents were in mortal danger, THEN the child faced punishment. You seem to believe it's this little spat between a father and his son that is a sin. It's not. Do some research. AND I just told you above that it was NOT once enforced. Not at any point does the Bible ever record that law being enforced in any example.

And stop with the red herring. You're claim regarding slavery is a fallacy. You are now trying to change the topic, which I was solely talking about the verse that you originally commented on - the one about striking ones mother or father, and now you are trying to shift topics to one you think better suits your argument. Please do some research and stop spreading what you perceive to be the truth about a religion you don't even believe.

"My point is about him calling something the good book when it even permits such things."

PermittED. PAST TENSE. Not permits. You apparently didn't bother to read my comments above. If we're going to have a conversation, the least you could do is to read and understand what I have tried to convey to you.
