178: Fearsome Horns

Psalm 74-77
I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up. - Psalm 75:10

All the Psalms today are written by Asaph.

Psalm 74: Asaph totally tears God up today. He asks God why he's abandoned us forever, and why he lets his enemies run free. He bemoans the fact that he gets no more miraculous signs from God. He closes by reminding God that his enemies are nasty and should be dealt with. I wonder why even the loyal followers of God say that they have no signs of his existence.

Psalm 75: Asaph decides that he's kind of fond of God in this chapter. I'm not sure why all of these biblical characters change their mind about God every 5 minutes. The last sentence is the best though, "I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up." Yeah! Cut off those horns! Wait, what? People have horns now? And I thought only atheists had horns.

Psalm 76: This whole chapter is about nobody being able to stand up to God when he is pissed. All the valiant men who have tried to rise up against God now lay dead. I guess God has loved a few more people to death.

Psalm 77: Asaph complains that when he cries out for God, God never comes to help him. He asks if God will reject him forever, and if he will never show his love again. All Asaph does to feel better is "remember [God's] miracles of long ago". Those miracles may or may not have happened, but whatever makes you feel better.

Well, you've probably already heard about this, but I can't have a story hit my news filter this many times and not post it.

It's that time of year again, Atheist Agenda is holding their annual "Smut for Smut" event at the University of Texas. If you don't know what this is, it's a pretty simple concept. You give them your bible, they give you porn.

I'm all for silly, possibly offensive, campus events, but there's no need for overt douchebaggery. News outlets love to jump on atheists being ass holes, and then don't talk about atheists donating to charity, or just being average human beings. No need to give people an excuse to call atheists jerks.

  1. You may be right about the overt douchebaggery, but you have to admit the comments thread on that article is HILARIOUS
