Vault101:
I know, you just didnt word it very well

a "gay act" is some aspect of gay sex..I think some forms of christianity recognise gayness, which is fine, just so long as you dont engage in the "act"

your wording implied that marrage was a "gay act" which I found pretty funny

Ah. So this was an attempt at being witty, then. ;)

Which forms are you referring to? A "gay act" could refer to sex, dating, or marriage. That's what I meant by it, anyway.

so you find everything about gayness to be wrong? I dont get that..even if your religion says so it doesnt matter what other people do...it doesn harm me or anyone

MPerce:

Oh, and I found ME3 to be an amazing game all around with only a minor hiccup with its ending.

I agree....I can understand how the ending might put some off repaying but it doesnt undo all the awsome fun I had the other 99% of the time

Vault101:

Yes - I do.

If you don't believe in Jesus and what the Bible says, it's pretty difficult for me to argue my point.

Anyway, it may not directly hurt me, but God is still against it; therefore, so am I.

This is by far, the funniest post on this thread so far, all 20 pages of it.

Serious matters: Most Atheists are asswipes. Oh you don't believe in god? Well shit you're automatically better than everyone who does. Moreso while you sit bitching on the internet for unfathomable amounts of time. (I'm saying this as someone who doesn't believe in god. I just hate how it isn't discrimination when atheists do it.) Same thing goes for Theists, but they are a lot less vocal unless you bring up homosexuality. (then it's 50% trolls anyway)

The death penalty is justice, I'm glad my country still supports it.

Abortion is wrong if its heart is beating. Contraception is fine. But there comes a point when it stops being about the woman's body, and it start being, ya know, a fucking baby.

Non-Serious matters:
Bad Religion is way more punk than the Clash.
Call of Duty isn't killing the game industry.
Magic the gathering is far superior to pokemon.
It's called soccer.
And whatever you call it, it's boring as hell.
So is every sport! (but at least with rugby and stock car racing there's a chance for a hilarious injury. Sadistic? Kinda. But i don't care)

Hmm, okay then...

Religion is, overall, a bad thing. There is no God, that's pretty plain to see for anyone with an open mind. The case could be made for religion still being beneficial for humanity regardless of its basis in fact, I don't personally think that's true, but it bears discussion.

Faith is the abnegation of reason. Reason trumps faith in every respect.

In response to the post above, yes, I am better than people who believe in God in one way at least, that way being the functioning of my rational mind. That said, a person who believes in God may very well be better than me in any number of other ways.

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand is the best book ever written. Atlas Shrugged, on the other hand, pretty much sucks. She overreached herself there, but her thoughts on individual responsibility as expressed in The Fountainhead are brilliant.

People who feel genuine anger towards the underclasses don't understand the complexities of society.

People who think that I've displayed inconsistency in those last two points and would like to discuss them with me should do so :)

I assume you're also against haircuts and never wear clothes with polyester blends.

Do you yell at girls for having "braided hair" because it isn't proper and biblical enough?

And fortune telling, do you refuse to eat/open fortune cookies?

Hopefully you don't wear any pearls or gold(like say a wedding ring) because Timothy asserts how unchristian that is.

There's a lot of non-virgin women around dude, havent you read the bible? "But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you." (Deuteronomy 22: 20-21)

You'd better get out there and throw some rocks at women, unless of course you aren't a good Christian.

except of course you also have to be a pacifist at the same time "But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." (Matthew 5:39)

And I hope you don't have tattoos, because the bible explicitly forbids those.

And you've never masturbated, or used a condom, or pulled out during sex, or had sex with a woman on her period I assume?

And while we are on that vein: "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28) I sure hope you have never looked at a woman and thought she was attractive if she wasn't your wife, because that would make you an adulterer.

Do you have a brother? Because if he dies, the bible says you're supposed to fuck his wife.

Have you ever picketed outside of restaurants that serve oysters, crabs, shrimp, lobster, prawns, clams, pigs, rabbits and told them they are going to hell? I assume you don't eat those things either, right? Because God hates people who eat those.

Oh and if you cut off a child's balls, they are going to hell and may no longer become a Christian. Which makes perfect sense, how dare an infant let itself be overpowered and abused, it deserves to burn in eternal hellfire.

Oh and don't forget female teachers, they are condemned to hell as well, for having authority over men. You should write some letters to your congressmen to get teachers to be exclusively male, lest too many women be sent to hell for their sins.

Oh and while you're at that, be sure to ask them to reform the justice system to cut off the hands of thieves like the bible says.

But of course after you cut off their hand, make sure you give them all your stuff because: "And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also." (Matthew 5:40)

Have you been keeping track of your mother? I certainly hope she has never prayed without wearing a hat or shawl because if so you should fear for her eternal soul. "But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head..." 1 Corinthians 11:5

Oh and don't forget retards or just plain weird people:
"For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken. No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the Lord made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God." (Leviticus 21:18-21)

Oh here's another good one: "For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him." (Leviticus 20:9)

I hope you've never cursed your parents. You were never like 11, and said "i hate you mom you're the worst. I wish you would just go away" right? Because if you ever did that... man you should kill yourself. And if your parents didn't kill you they must be pretty big sinners.

Man you know that like 70% of Swedish people are unbelieving atheists/agnostics who reject God?: "If in spite of this you still do not listen to me but continue to be hostile toward me, 28 then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over. 29 You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters."(Leviticus 26:27-30)

Holy fuck man, we had best stay out of Sweden they are all baby cannibals right?

Pictured: Godless Swedish Cannibals, presumably preparing for a baby murder spree.

Oh wait... that is unless of course you just like to cherry pick things in the bible like its a fucking buffet. Oh yeah this is the word of God: fags are evil, oh wait but this passage is out of place I like me some rabbit stew, oh here's one non-Christians go to hell: I'll have some of that, no haircuts?: nah I'll just ignore that one. God only really means the bible passages that I arbitrarily agree with because my parents/pastor raised me to be human silly putty, right? With an emphasis on the silly.

Sorry to single you out, but I just had to call someone out on this. These are not unpopular opinions! Especially on the internet. Most of the posts on this forum are things that 75% of The Escapist would agree with. Especially things like "I'm not religious" and such.

I happen to believe that sometimes people want to think their opinions are unpopular, because that makes them a unique snowflake that goes against the grain. Ironically, this sort of desperate need to be unique results in a quest for the approval of others. Conformity from a quest for nonconformity.

I'm just curious why you think non-religiousness is unpopular.

OK. Unpopular, right?

I think two or more people thinking the same way or agreeing on any point is a bad thing. The moment they start thinking somebody else thinks they're right is the moment they start thinking they are on a quest to rid the world of evil. This works with absolutely any opinion you could possibly have.

I think the reason every problem in the world exists is because people aren't willing to give anything to gain what they want or what they want for others. Most civilized people are prepared to die in order to not give anything they think is theirs in order to help others.

Buffoon:
Snip

This is why we should keep religion as minimum as possible in discussions. I kind of wish people would respect religion overall too. I'm perfectly fine if you don't like religion or if you're not religious, cool. But to simply just say it's fiction and those who believe in one are wrong- ugh it's just not good to say period. I don't think people understand how much religion matters to people, like me for example. I admit I am not the perfect Christian, but I try the best I can to make life mean something while letting others be themselves (homosexuals for instance. They're not doing anything wrong in my book, and I believe the bible says otherwise but people warp things around from time to time.)

Anyways, no one is better then anyone. Even if someone makes a better stand in their debate, does not mean they're better. I don't find myself in a higher power then you nor see you any higher then say the users above and below your post. I don't even know why I am quoting you exactly, but I really wish people would discard religion in a manner that discriminates people who hold onto faith... but, if you believe religion is truly non existent to reality then alright. Just hope people can mind and understand one another without putting a belief, concept, or morality down. Also if I am not wording myself correctly, it's 2:35 AM here so I apologize.

I ...agree.
Now we shall purge the world of evil.
Mwahahahaa.

The world would be a funny place if agreeing with anyone was considered a bad thing all the time.

I hate most Bronies. Not all of them, but most of them
I enjoy Runescape.
Nathan Drake isn't a tosspot, and I don't see why people hate him.
The 2008 Prince of Persia game wasn't crap.
Loading Ready Run isn't as funny as most people make it out to be. However, Unskippable and Feed Dump are highly underrated.
Dubstep is my least favorite genre of music.
The only good Oasis album was Morning Glory.
America is overrated (Coming from a Kiwi).
The Starwars prequels weren't that bad, and Jar-Jar Binks was kind of funny-ish.
I find nothing wrong with the use of Comic Sans. It's a nice and friendly font.
The Clash are the best band.

How many fan groups have I pissed off?

I don't like chocolate, it makes me physically sick when I have any (actually that goes for a lot of rich foods).

I can't stand Mariah Carey, her voice is way too screechy, like nails on a chalk board.

The best snack in the world is the sandwich (any sandwich, that includes burgers)

Silent Hill 4 was pretty awesome and I didn't mind the degrading weapons since I never really bothered with the combat unless I really had to, anyway.

Velociraptors are nowhere near as cool as Deinonychus, which is actually what the dinosaurs should have been called in Jurassic Park; Velociraptors are tiny things, barely even bigger than a turkey.

I do still get annoyed when people confuse dragons and wyverns, most "dragons" you see are actually wyverns most of the time.

Why would God keep making homosexuals if he didn't like them?

Jack the Potato:
I hate the gay community. All of it. Absolutely, unapologetically hate it. Why, you ask?

THEY STOLE GOD-DAMNED RAINBOWS. ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHOOOOOOOOOOOOOLES!!!

I mean, the rainbow was always kind of a fruity thing to like, but it never meant straight-up gay until the gay community adopted it as their symbol. I don't hate gay people, and I'm not against any of their causes, but seriously, fuck them for ruining rainbows. Fuck them all! You can't just "claim" the visual light spectrum! You can't!

Another, more rational unpopular opinion I have is that people are people, no matter who they are. They deserve a chance, even if their government is evil, or their religion has a few whackjobs that make said religion seem crazy. Dividing the world into factions, or even worse, enemies and non-enemies, causes nothing but strife. You may think this shouldn't be an unpopular opinion, and I agree, but it is, especially in my line of work (the US military). Now I can understand why some of my coworkers have adopted a "from enemy country = enemy" mentality and I don't hold it against them. I just hope they'll learn to see things the way I do in time. But this doesn't just apply to the military, it applies to anyone who sees someone with a different opinion or just someone who works for someone with a different opinion and thinks "that person is the enemy." Things are never so black and white.

I don't hate the gay community, but I don't think that being so in your face about their sexuality will make me accept them any more than I do. I am not homophobic, I believe that homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else as they are people, but the way they campaign for their cause just annoys me. Hell, I've been friends with gays in the past, but some of them really annoyed me with their attitude towards anything that could possibly offend them. Hell, I make offensive jokes around them one day, they're laughing with everyone else. The next, they're practically getting a lynch mob together!

I don't like people forcing their beliefs in my face. Christianity, Buddhism, stuff like that. I don't believe in God, but I believe there is an unimaginable force that is beyond human understanding - God doesn't cover it. Could say I'm an agnostic, but when Christianity steals ideas from other religions and changes it around a bit, it just loses my faith in religion.

I realize these are responses to things posted pages ago on this thread, but I was busy taking a 9 hour long engineering licensing exam yesterday and was to exhausted to respond. (A side note that really has nothing to do with the topic at hand, but I just really really want to say it: FUCK YEAH THAT STUPID EXAM IS OVER WITH!!!!!!!!)

That exam was fucking horrible. I took the FE exam yesterday to. What discipline did you take in the afternoon?
Sorry to go off topic.

I took Civil in the afternoon. It was pretty awful. Civil has a lot of different random topics, so there were a few sections I just had to answer C and keep going. Like steel design. Ugh.

Which one did you take?

I actually took Civil as well. I thought the elctrical and thermo questions were pretty tough in the morning since I had not effin clue what was going on so I guessed on most of them.

Goog luck, I hope you passed.

I like how most of the opinions in this thread aren't at all unpopular. Some have done it right, though.

Anyway...

-A generous booty is the most important corporal feature on a woman below the neck. Boobs are nice, but optional.

-America needs to maintain its military power, else the West is lost. Europe would realize that it was nice having us as a military ally once Russia and China take advantage of the power vacuum and make Europe their patsy.

-Germans should stop being guilty about WW2. Obviously the country has moved on from that moment of pure evil. Germans should start being proud of the fact that given equal numbers, they tend to dominate all other Europeans both militarily and economically. They should just rule all of Europe really.

-Black history month (and anything else labelled black, as in "white man stay out") is just another form of segregation and should be done away with. We're Americans, and Homo Sapiens, and people from all skin colors contribute to the continued racial tension.

-Capitalism is the least evil economic system that humanity has come up with. There is always room to improve, but for now, it's the best we've got.

I love it all, when can we chill and have a chat. Though I get what you're saying about America and power... I wish no one would try to get that power :( But unavoidable evils and what not.

I know the crowd isn't as prowess here... But when I play Dota or Dota2 or LoL, I play to win not to have a big score and lots of farm.

I think that the world should be rid of governments and true anarchy should be given to all.

I'm well aware of the negative consequences, but the true freedom is in my opinion worth it.

COHERENT, that is COHERENT and Well informed political debate is welcome. (Anyone who claims that anarchy means chaos is factually wrong, look up the definition in a dictionary before you post if you are under that impression.)

The Crazy Legs:
People who can't spell or use punctuation should be rounded up and tortured with sleep deprivation until they learn to write like human beings.

What about dyslexics? It's not their fault.

They're an exception, but really, take a good look at all the forums on the Escapist. Do you think that ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE are dyslexic? I doubt it.

No time. Can you challenge yourself to a mono, instead?

"I hate most bronies"

This gave me a sad, but I'm fine with it, the only thing I don't like are the people who take that very same opinion and assault us with it.

Though, I don't see any reason why people have to declare "most." I just find it unfair to generalize, with any group of people, not just bronies.

So I assume you also support polygamy, are against men that have sex with women on their period, are against tattoos, don't eat all sorts of meats including but not limited to shellfish and pork and rare meats, don't wear clothes made from a blend of textiles (also known as almost all clothes today), are against people sowing fields with mixed seeds (which is really stupid since it drains the ground) and finally hold Saturdays as the sabbath.

What about people with English as a second language? Actually, I think American grammar-nazi's should be rounded up and tortured with sleep deprivation until they learn to ignore minor spellingmistakes.

Grammar-Nazi? Am I a grammar Nazi? I never said that it mattered that much to me, and it's just sleep deprivation. It's more or less just a joke, because I find that people who sepll lke this rre anyying. Sorry that my opinion sounds a little bit obscure.

Frostbyte:

Nathan Drake isn't a tosspot, and I don't see why people hate him.

People dislike him because he is meant to be "normal" when in fact he is far from it. He's a walking tank with absolutely no flaws at all.

Lesbians are the greatest creation of all time.

That, and those who inherit and carry the Y chromosome are the scourge of the universe.

Dunno if they are unpopular...but I think they aren't vocally popular anyways.

CrazyCapnMorgan:
Lesbians are the greatest creation of all time.

alter that slightly... "lipstick lesbians are the greatest creation of all time."

Nothing against butches, i just prefer girly girls who like girls.

i think flame shields are for pussies.

Relish in Chaos:
The fact of the matter is, people have kids for themselves.

You are correct. That said, I still intend to have kids Because a lot of idiots keep giving birth without intending to. I'd like to counter that with kids who will be raised by parents who actually care about the process and have a shred of intelligence. So my reason is one part selfish and one part idealistic. I figure if we're going to go extinct anyway, I may as well get some enjoyment and satisfaction out of my life. Otherwise, I may as well just kill myself because my life won't have any direction.

As for an unpopular opinion I have: I am against affirmative action. I'm white. I'm male. Go ahead, call me racist. Call me sexist.

...Got it out of your system yet? Good.

Now, the reason I'm against affirmative action is this: Entitling someone based on race is racism, and entitling someone based on sex is sexism. This also applies when the previously-oppressed are being entitled. Affirmative action is racist and sexist.

The path to true equality is not more inequality in retribution for past inequalities. That leads to anger from those who aren't entitled, which then leads to more retribution. Instead of a balanced scale, we get a swinging pendulum. The kind from a certain Edgar Allen Poe poem.

No, the only way to bring true equality is to practice true equality. Affirmative action should only be brought in as a final resort if all other factors are equal (which is extremely rare).

Got a few more unpopular opinions.

I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

The star wars prequels were quite good.

I have no quarrel with KFC chips (fries for the benefit of americans and other non-brits who say 'fries')

KISS are the most overrated band in history. (but still not bad, I like some of their songs)

Nutella fucking sucks, hate hazelnut things and none of you are going to tell me that you don't taste the hazelnut because you do and it is horrible.

I hope you've never cursed your parents. You were never like 11, and said "i hate you mom you're the worst. I wish you would just go away" right? Because if you ever did that... man you should kill yourself. And if your parents didn't kill you they must be pretty big sinners.

Man you know that like 70% of Swedish people are unbelieving atheists/agnostics who reject God?: "If in spite of this you still do not listen to me but continue to be hostile toward me, 28 then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over. 29 You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters."(Leviticus 26:27-30)

1. The book of Acts repeals laws regarding things that are unclean. This is considered part of that. This reference is going to be coming up a lot.

2. That comes from Timothy, a book largely of advice from one preacher to another. It is very cultural and should not be taken as absolute in any way.

3. There's a difference between fortune telling and reading a fortune cookie.

4. Timothy wrote nothing, Paul wrote that book. Once again, a book largely of advice and it is good advice at that. People really should focus more on doing good than worldly goods.

5. A book of law that Christians do not have to follow to the letter as far as punishment is regarded, but rather as far as not doing the bad things that require the punishment.

6. This is therefore not a contradiction.

7. Acts

8. I really take no issue with this one. Despite my own weaknesses in this regard, I don't think of this rule as bad. You have to realize that most Christians don't actually think they can accomplish many of these goals, but rather should always be aiming to do so.

9. That was a very specific biblical story pal, regarding a very specific individual. Looking at the era the story was about, it did make sense though. Infant mortality was high at the time.

10. Acts. MOTHERFUCKING ACTS.

11. New Testament has no problem with Eunuchs.'

12. Timothy, again. You really need an understanding of context.

13. See 5

14. I believe that was part of a metaphor and not to be taken literally. Yes it was part of a metaphor.

15. Acts

16. Ha! See 5. I seriously didn't think I'd end up using that one more than Acts. You proved me wrong.

17. I can't believe you didn't realize he was talking about the Israelites specifically there. God did that a lot. He would often punish his own people especially hard so that they would learn their lesson and because they knew better. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Swedish.

I find the absolute ignorance of context within all of your citations hilarious. Though I don't necessarily agree with the individual you are quoting (the exact NT verse could be specifically referring to male prostitutes), I find myself annoyed by your know-it-all behavior combined with an absolute lack of understanding of context. Try again some other time.

Relish in Chaos:
The fact of the matter is, people have kids for themselves.

You are correct. That said, I still intend to have kids Because a lot of idiots keep giving birth without intending to. I'd like to counter that with kids who will be raised by parents who actually care about the process and have a shred of intelligence. So my reason is one part selfish and one part idealistic. I figure if we're going to go extinct anyway, I may as well get some enjoyment and satisfaction out of my life. Otherwise, I may as well just kill myself because my life won't have any direction.

As for an unpopular opinion I have: I am against affirmative action. I'm white. I'm male. Go ahead, call me racist. Call me sexist.

...Got it out of your system yet? Good.

Now, the reason I'm against affirmative action is this: Entitling someone based on race is racism, and entitling someone based on sex is sexism. This also applies when the previously-oppressed are being entitled. Affirmative action is racist and sexist.

The path to true equality is not more inequality in retribution for past inequalities. That leads to anger from those who aren't entitled, which then leads to more retribution. Instead of a balanced scale, we get a swinging pendulum. The kind from a certain Edgar Allen Poe poem.

No, the only way to bring true equality is to practice true equality. Affirmative action should only be brought in as a final resort if all other factors are equal (which is extremely rare).

I agree 100%. I understand AA was in response to unfair, racist and sexist business practices, but fighting racism with racism and sexism with sexism just makes the problem worse IMO. AA is just treating the symptoms instead of the disease.

Why would a god who is supposedly infallible just change his mind after a while? Why would one thing be against god at one time then not after a while. Surely a perfect god would know what is right and wrong at the start?

In some ways I suppose it isn't mine to ask, but if I had to answer, I would say it is people that changed. Cultures progressed, prisons became a viable option, and it was no longer necessary for God's followers to make themselves seperate as their purpose became an inclusive one. Right and wrong are not as absolute as we in our more western mindset would like it to be. There's a reason the majority of the Bible is stories and advice rather than rules.
