Matthew94:

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.

If you were christian then right and wrong would be absolute.

Right would be what god tells you is right and the same for wrong.

You have no right to tell me what I believe. I believe they are less absolute than we would like to think. For one man it is meaningless to drink, for another damnation. Do the right you know you ought to do. That is my only absolute law. What I ought to do is not the same as what you ought to do. What God would have me do is not the same as He would have you do. If that isn't less absolute than what most would like to think I don't know what is.

Directly inspired by this same thread:

On the Escapist, I and a friend of mine always check the profile of any posters that post ignorant, bigoted, amoral and reprehensible opinions. Then we laugh haughtily because their nationality is the same 90% of the time. Hint, it's not Canada.

By you I meant person in general, not you specifically.

Anyway, you talk in empty rhetoric. I have no time for this.

neonsword13-ops:
Fallout 3 was better than New Vegas.

Atmosphere in 3 was superior in every way.

*Flameshield... UP!*

Absolutely correct.

OT: I'm not sure if I want to do this, but here it goes:

Mass Effect 1 was absolutely fucking awful.

Children with 'special' needs and disabilities don't need all the respect they deserve.

Resident Evil 5 was actually a good game.

There are way more girls on Xbox Live that just want to show off there tits than real girl gamers who just want to play a damn game

H.P Lovecraft was some sort of god, and the necronomicon really existed.

This. Totally. fucking. agreed

We should unify each National Space Program, and then fund that single organisation. Spaaaaace!

Fallout 3 was better than New Vegas.

Bad Company 2 was better than Battlefield 3.

Halo 3 was good, and better than Halo: Reach.

I liked the ME3 Ending.

Morrowind was the best of all Elder Scrolls (And yes, I've played each and every one of them).

Portal was better than Portal 2.

Harry Potter sucks.

Suicide doesn't automatically make one cowardly/pathetic, such as is the stigma.

Edit: Mass Effect 1, both story and gameplay wise, rocked.

JoJo:

I don't usually reply to these "unpopular opinion threads" since by definion I'm not going to agree with what most people say here but as someone who was diagnosed with Asperger's aged ten, I need to clear up a misconception about the disorder. It's not impossible for Asperger's people to "learn any social skills", yes we find it difficult to read body language and understand what other people are thinking which makes it harder to learn social skills but it's definitely possible to make improvements, even if we'll never reach the standard of your average typical person. Since the beginning of my teenage years up until now, I have painstakingly first learned how not to insult people accidentally or seem weird, then learned how to make basic small talk, all by a conscious effort. Over the last year and a half since I went to university I've managed to make quite a few friends and a lot of this is down to what I learned about socialising in school, even if it was a pain at the time. I therefore disagree with your assessment that Asperger's people aren't benifitted by attending a regular school.

All of the above applies to me and everyone else socially awkward. So either all of us have Asperger's, or neither of us actually has Asperger's. I'm going to go with the latter, because, like I said, this is a diagnosis that gets thrown around way, way more often than it should be. Asperger kids don't "find it difficult to read body signals", they just flat out can't do that, at all. Of course, there's a pretty big chance that I just made a half-assed assumption based on a little post, but ever since Asperger's syndrome's existence got known to the general public, and everyone suddenly "got" it, I take statements like "I have Asperger's" with a grain -- nay, a whole damn bowl -- of salt. Even if it's based on an actual professional diagnosis.

I think the Scottish have absolutely fuck all to be complaining about. The Scottish nationalist movement is nothing more than thinly veiled Anglophobia. I think we should kick them out of the Union.

A good quote from Scottish writer Shena Mackay

'I want Scotland to be Scottish through and through. I hate to hear English accents in the shops there'

I'll rephrase that.
'I want England to be English through and through. I hate to hear Pakistani accents in the shops there'

Makes me sound like a member of the BNP, don't it?

Oh and self determination is a pointless concept. Most Irish people I have spoken to fully support kicking the unionists out of Northern Ireland and reuniting it with the Republic. Most Argentinians would support retaking the Falklands against the islanders wishes . Self Determination is only used as a reason when it supports you.

Personally I think marriage of all kinds, gay or straight, need to stop being recognized by any government

You got that part right mate, could you kindly explain how you know more about me by one paragraph of text than trained medical professionals using well-established tests who met me several times in real life?

No offence but it's pretty clear to me that you don't really understand Asperger's syndrome, it's not just social awkwardness, there's other symptoms including particular types of obsessive behaviour, over-formal speech and physical clumsiness for example. I also don't get where you got this "we can't flat out read body signals" from because it's clearly defined as a "spectrum disorder" which means the strength of symptoms can vary widely between sufferers. If every Asperger's person found it completely 100% impossible to read body language then it wouldn't be a spectrum!

I don't blame you for not-knowing everything about a complicated disorder since there's no reason for you to know the ins and outs, but me and my fellow Asperger's would appreciate it if in future if you did the research before making claims about what's right or wrong for us.

Eh, I liked Vegas better, and Battlefield 3 and Reach. But opinions are opinions. But about suicide, I totally agree. I hate that stigma with a passion. Whoever says that has clearly no idea what they're talking about when it comes to mental conditions.

Marter:
The Hangover sucked.

And that is the only unpopular opinion I can think of right now that I have.

Praise Jim. I've never seen the appeal of that movie and never understood why it got a sequel. But then, I've also always been amazed that Sacha Baron Cohen keeps getting work.

OT: Hell, this thread is at 21 pages now. My post won't be read. My unpopular opinion is that people shouldn't get so goddamn worked up and angry over such little things as video games, movies, books, comics, music, or television. It's a waste of energy to spend every waking moment proclaiming how you're going to boycott this or how you hated that, and quite frankly it's been devaluing all of those words as well. Hate has no meaning in American-English anymore, because it's used to describe everything that a person so much as mildly dislikes. And it's just a subconscious thing too:
"Hey, you wanna go see Anchorman II?"
"Nah man, I hate Will Ferrel."

Honestly, if you actually have such a seething hatred for the man that you'd wish physical harm on him, you've got bigger problems. If you just dislike his films because you don't think he's funny, then say that. "Oh, no, I don't care for Will Ferrel. I've never found him to be funny." If you get a visceral kick out of using such strong feelings for such a minor thing. . . again, I think you probably have bigger problems.

I don't know, maybe I'm just as emotionally stunted as the rest of the males in my family (though I seem to be the emotional one), but I've never seen the point in getting angry over this stuff. Yeah, I get mad at games. While I'm playing them, if I'm stuck on a particular part or if the game is openly mocking how bad I might be at it. I'll get angry, I'll yell, I'll throw petulant little hissy fits and flail my arms around. But after I close the game, I'm done. I don't feel the need to brandish my pixel sword and ride off to the internet forums, attacking everything remotely related to the game. If I were a video game critic, then maybe. . . but as it stands it just makes no difference.

I don't know about everyone else, but it's very rare that I'll actually return to a game that I've finished. Unless it really encourages replay value or is just a really excellent game, once I'm done with it, I'm done with it. And I don't even understand how someone could literally play the same game for weeks on end, multiplayer or not. I'll do multiple play-throughs of Mass Effect or Deus Ex, but not back-to-back. There's likely to be a month or two, maybe even longer, between each game. I play other games in that time. I move on. I don't get emotionally scarred and feel that the game developers betrayed me personally because of a sub-par bit of writing that was contrived and stupid. I don't feel like they've engineered combustible lemons to burn my house down. I feel like their publisher put the pressure on them and they needed to rush, so they couldn't put in all of the context that would've allowed for the sub-par bit to feel natural and in-place.

You know what has made me angry? Ubisoft accusing their entire PC fan-base of being lying, thieving pirates. Toying with them by floating out rumors of countless titles they'd cancel for the PC and release only on consoles because of piracy. EA's endless cycle of buying a developer, letting them release a game or two, and then crushing them so they're never heard from again. Activision buying Blizzard. Publishers who have no way of proving anything having press releases that are meant purely for scaring the developers, investors, and public, saying "OUR GAEM HAS BEEN PIRATED FORTY-EIGHT BILLION TIMES!!!!" No it hasn't. Bitorrent or whatever it's called is even cocky or stupid enough to release the numbers of how many times so-and-so's game has been downloaded, and the highest number is something like eight million for a Call of Duty game. I don't even know, I don't pay attention to that stuff, all I do know it that the big corporations are trying to use fear-mongering and that makes me angry.

But those have nothing to do with the games themselves. Those have to do with the companies behind the games. Get mad at the companies, sure. "Oh, Bioware sold out when EA bought them." Sure, sure, that's fine. "Mass Effect sucks, I hate Bioware, I'm never going to buy from them again!" Now see, that's how EA manages to justify crushing a game studio. It's not explicitly Bioware's fault that Dragon Age 2 was mediocre or that Mass Effect 3 has a horribly contrived ending. They shoulder a lot of the blame, yes, but EA shoulders almost an equal amount for being the driving force that has the final say of what gets put into the game and what gets pulled out. But have two lackluster games really been enough to make you swear off the entire studio forever and hope that they turn out like the next Pandemic Studios?

I fear that I've strayed away from my original point, but I suppose it does all fit within the over-arching "Unpopular Opinions" thing this thread is about, so there you have it.

I Think Hatsume Miku (Vocaloid) Is the Antichrist.

Man has created an literal idol in his image. She is new Golden Calf Folks.

Jon Stewart > Steven Colbert
Some people don't deserve to live.
ALL drugs should be legalized.
Law abiding citizens should be allowed to possess any firearm they want.
I DO want to live on this planet and feel the fuckwads should be the ones to leave.

I don't consider religious people to be utter delusional fucktards. I think they're wrong, but they don't get automatic unperson status, which seems to be the general reaction on these forums.

I completely hate extroverted people. The absolute last thing I need when I'm sitting in a corner trying to read is some bubbly maniac sitting down and trying to strike up a conversation about their favorite bands because they pity me.I'm here because I wanted to get away from your inane drivel, dear heart, now piss off, will you?

The word "creeper", which is insanely popular slang right now, at least where I'm living, makes me want to break jaws. It's not so much the word itself as the fact that it gets applied to literally everyone, because apparently "a sideways glance as you pass someone in the street" is the new "a quick grope while they're unconcious".

I think people are way too quick to demonize the use of physical violence. Shooting someone in the face because you don't like the way they're looking at you? Criminal behavior. Punching someone out because they've been harassing you? Perfectly reasonable, yet still treated as criminal behavior.

And finally, I absolutely despise John Lennon. The man's music just sound like crap to me. And I know I'm not the first to point this out, but he sang the line "imagine no posessions" while playing a white Steinway.

JoJo:

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Asperger's' defenition is so wide it captures pretty much everything from "slightly awkward and OCD" to "Sheldon Cooper", thus devaluing it and making it a useless, meaningless diagnosis. Social awkwardness, OCD (again, mostly a bullshit diagnosis since one can safely assume 100% of people have it in some form), and physical awkwardness (hoo boy) sure are a bitch, but I firmly believe only the more or less extreme cases that cannot be overcome just with the sufferer's conscious effort and necessitate professional help should be qualified as a syndrome.

Same thing with ADD. It's also often used as a cop-out by teachers who don't want to tell the kid's parents their child is actually dumb or lazy, and that doesn't help things at all.

Mainstream Hip-Hop is (for the most part) complete trash and underground Hip-Hop is superior in every way.

Even though I disagree with the style, I do not hate Emo kids or people who sag their pants (to each their own).

I am Agnostic. I can see all the flaws of religion, but cannot honestly see how science can disprove the existence of a god (or higher being that exists somewhere in our universe/other dimmension that is superior to us in every conceivable way).

Racism is stupid. This may not seem unpopular but think of the internet. POINT MADE.

Every single citizen should receive some kind of self defense training from childhood to teens/adulthood. Yea there still going to be bullies and people who physically abuse others, but at least now every schoolyard fight will look like some badass 70's Hong Kong Kung-Fu flick.

TheAmokz:
I fear Islam. It is Political ideology stuck to the middle ages and unless it manages to grow up, it has no place in the current world.

You think Islam is Political ideology? You must be absolutely TERRIFIED of christianity in that case.

I feel really Darwinist when I say that I agree.

*double flame shield*

ace_of_something:
I'm against both the death penalty and (generally) abortion. Both are common stances but rarely together people who are against one are usually for the other (which makes no goddamn sense to me).

solvemedia: High Time

how very coincidental.

I find there's a large difference between killing a criminal who did something deserving of death and an unborn child who hasn't done anything. Whether the parents were too young and stupid or the mother was a rape victim, you can't blame the child for anything.

Yeah, I'm Pro-Death Penalty and Pro-Life.

Pfheonix:
I hate religion. I think it's a poison. It brings many people peace, but it destroys so much of what makes humanity great: it stops progress, and creates an intelligence drain on the general populace. God is a fallacy, and anyone who believes otherwise is either kidding themselves or just plain scared. People who have faith can do great things. Einstein, Thomas Edison, many theoretical physicists are spiritual, and have done more for the understanding of the universe, but they sustain this illogical and baseless belief. Religion, in particular, however, is evil. It should be eradicated. Extinguished. Firebombed from fifteen miles up. You get the point. It hurts too many people to be good.

Also, I think that guns are more than just a device used to kill. They can be used for mere enjoyment. As a hobby, the maintenance can be soothing, just like a car. I believe that ammo should be the restricted part, not the lower receiver, and that without ammunition, the gun is nothing but a big hammer. I live in the United States of America, by the way.

Also, the post above me was not there before I posted. This is mere coincidence. Very odd coincidence.

Homosexuality, however, is quite natural. Look at nature.

Ive actually been thinking over the idea for a while and have come to the personal and incredibly simple conclusion that people are just golden shit-tards. I mean agreeing with you on the point that religion is a focal point for people who fear death and the beyond, but by itself religion is nothing. just an idea like the importance of the dollar bill that people attach meaning to that leads to all of the violence and insanity. Anyway I think that even if religion didn't exist (which it probably always will until we solve the mysteries of the universe) people would just focus all of that feverish dedication into other ideas. The crazies that practice their faith in all of the worst ways could just as easily worship their government just as intensely, religion isn't what makes them crazy, it's just one kind of fuel to the fire.

wow, this is one long thread. my turn!

you suck, no matter who you are you suck. I suck too just not as much as you suck.

hardline atheists and theists need to go to their rooms and think until they can converse on the subject like adults.

Violence is sometimes the answer, but death is always a last resort.

Guns are the worst thing to ever happen to humans

I should be allowed to rob anyone who claims to be for "total business deregulation" Because what right does the government have to inhibit my highway robbery business.

Objectivism is for pussies, what most people are thinking of is often called anarchism.

officials should be elected by lottery.

the world population is about 6,840,000,000 so even if the love of your life is a 1 in a million you still have a pretty good shot.

I'm not sure those are all unpopular but that's what I got.

Mycroft Holmes:
I assume...

You seem quite arrogant. And your sarcasm is not appreciated. Keep it civil if you expect people to take the time to reply.

Anyway, a lot of what you quoted no longer applies. Many of those rules were for people of the Old Testament times. As for eunuchs, I don't think that it was saying they couldn't get into Heaven; rather, it was referring to entering a synagogue or temple.

When Jesus died, he made it so that we no longer had to take part in certain things, such as animal sacrifice.

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

Where is that one?

"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."

Where does it say that they are condemned to hell for that?

"But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head-it is the same as having her head shaved."

I should fear for her eternal soul? Even if that still applies, it never says that she would go to hell if she prophesied with her head uncovered.

pffh:
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.

Like I said to Mycroft, a lot of that doesn't apply anymore because of Jesus' Death.

Which specific scripture are you referring to with regard to the issue of polygamy?

Tom Milner:
here's a thing;
theists who attack the beleifs of others

not a lot to say, but i have come exceptionally close to wanting to tear their lower jaws out and not give them back until they promise not be insufferable jerks.

Theists do rather a lot of that themselves.
Anyway, graveyards. People six feet down are dead. Gone. They do not need to tire up a piece of land for decades to come.
Breeding. Everyone should have to pass a test before they can have kids. That way, kids don't have to live with abusive parents, or in a family that can't support them. Also, we'll eliminate genetic traits that don't benefit anyone.
Pacifism annoys me as well. Yes, it would be lovely if we could all make nice, but we're people, dammit, and people will always be willing to take what they want by force, and when they do, you'd better hope you can stop them.

Deathmageddon:

Panda Mania:
*laughs* My unpopular opinions are actually popular ones, just not in the context of my (conservative, Christian) community. Wait, maybe there is one...

Lol I said almost exactly the same thing! *internet high five!*

Panda Mania:
I believe in treating every human with basic respect. I believe in giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, in showing them mercy, love, and forgiveness because I pity all humanity in their endless misery and suffering. Though I may dislike a person, though I may hate them, I must force myself to treat them with civility and kindness because I cannot see into their heart and judge them to be good or evil.

It is because of this closet humanism that I find myself at odds with Christianity's concept of a divine judgment, of heaven and hell. If I were God, I would either save all humanity or kill all humanity. Humans are consigned to their sins; I will not place the faults of the universe on their shoulders.

Nothing humanistic about that first paragraph, I'm sure you realize this, but you paraphrased Jesus like a boss. And for the record, (I should say assuming the existence of God and the divinity of Christ, so as to make this comment flame-retardant) God already kinda did save all humanity. Jesus' death meant everyone gets a 'get out of hell free' card. People just gotta pick it up.

Another Christian on these forums? I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I am! ^^ *internet high five back*

I really do love Christ's instruction to love each other. It's part of what makes Christianity so precious to me. As for God saving humanity, yes, He did indeed stoop down and die so that all could be saved. I guess my nit-picky problem with it is that while sin is the default, is automatic, salvation is totally opt-in. Which would be okay if the world weren't so freakin' confusing and the choices were clear. I'm just uncomfortable with "the goats" being condemned because they "chose wrong" during their dark, cruel, and conflicted lives. *shrug* :/ I know I have to trust that God will be utterly fair and merciful, but sometimes it's hard.

I think doing away with religion would be more beneficial to the world than not.

I think Harry Potter is everything that is wrong with cinema.

sorry

I like The Hunger Games.

Depressive people annoy me (yep, I'm a horrible person. :P)

Revnak:

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.

Uhhhh thank you for helping to prove my point? But it's not really necessary, as it was not aimed at you. Also you seem pretty hostile for having basically figured out exactly what the point of my post was... it's almost like the words are all there but you haven't connected the dots between everything.

Let me make it more clear:

1) Mad World says 'God is against fags'
2) I respond with a list of practices that are no longer used, pointing out that God apparently changes his mind about things(I guess he's not infallible) because previous religious requirements are overturned, and thus it is insane to say that Jesus thinks "homosexuality is evil" given the above contextualization.
3) You get mad because you don't like it pointed out that the bible has modified as a document and respond by pointing out that the bible has been modified as a document; because you don't like that I'm using that to point out that there is precedent for homosexuality being not evil, because you think homosexuality isn't evil... what?

I didn't think that the ending to Mass Effect 3 was all that horrible. It wasn't good, mind you, but I think it could have been worse. I'm not sure how, but maybe they could have come round to my house and kill my cat...

This is not so much an Unpopular Opinion as an extreme Opinion,Against a very SMALL group of people, but the ones that act like everyone with a slight mental handicap is a moron who can't tie their own shoes.

You know who you are

Adrian

their wrong, they will always be wrong and they can fuck right off and I hope their son has a mental issue,

Fuck em...

I believe we need to cut the world's population by a great amount, bringing it down to around 3 billion if not lower.
To do so, I believe people with terminally ill conditions, people that are handicapped to the point of being a liability, and people that are a threat to the community (criminals, murderers, drug abusers, dealers etc) should be killed of. If possible, in a humane way.
Also, restricting birth rates to less than 1% a year could be implemented.

Why you ask? Because the level of consumption is to high, and it would take to long to change our system for it to be effective. Instead, this drop in population can help give us time to change the system and become more "Eco-friendly" (lack of a better term) and also allow wealth to be distributed among fewer people - giving people a chance at more in life.
It would be similar to the effect the Black Plague had in Europe, where the sudden drop in population meant more could be distributed among the remaining.
Sad, yes. But I believe it is necessary.

Mad World:

You seem quite arrogant.

I am actually quite diffident, but that's not how one wins arguments.

Mad World:
And your sarcasm is not appreciated.

It never is.

Mad World:
Keep it civil if you expect people to take the time to reply.

You haven't even seen me being uncivil. I can become a lot more unpleasant than this.

Mad World:
Anyway, a lot of what you quoted no longer applies. Many of those rules were for people of the Old Testament times. As for eunuchs, I don't think that it was saying they couldn't get into Heaven; rather, it was referring to entering a synagogue or temple.

When Jesus died, he made it so that we no longer had to take part in certain things, such as animal sacrifice.

So they were good and right things to do, and then they became evil things to do or simply irrelevantly neutral? So is God infallible or does he have to change what is right and wrong? And if he changes right and wrong how do you know homosexuality won't become right at some later time. And if its right at a later time why is it not right now? Who knew chronology had such a direct and arbitrary link to morality.

oh, also you are bad at bibling

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

Where is that one?

"Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother." (Mark 12:19)

To be fair you only have to do it if she has no children, and you only have to do it once to get her pregnant. You agree with it of course?

Mad World:
"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."

Where does it say that they are condemned to hell for that?

It says that it is wrong. Where are people sent to after death, when they willfully do wrong in life?

Mad World:
"But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head-it is the same as having her head shaved."

I should fear for her eternal soul? Even if that still applies, it never says that she would go to hell if she prophesied with her head uncovered.

Again: It says that it is wrong. Where are people sent to after death, when they willfully do wrong in life?

We should all just go back to having Kings and Queens. A prince or princess is guaranteed power so there would be no need to lie to the masses in expensive election campaigns.
