EDITED by Toan circa December 27th, 2007 (preserved below my blurb is the original post):

First of all, sorry to arunma for editing his post here - I would have inserted my own if there was such an option to do so. It occurred to me, though, that through the database shifts and hackings LA has undergone, the "Who Are We?" thread is very jumbled and, to newcomers reading this thread from the start, entirely confusing.

So, to summarize, post here your beliefs. That's all. :P

Nothing, I just wanted to be sure that there was no confusion. I like (most) Southern Baptists.

Thumbs up. I couldn't agree more.

SOCIAL: Pro-choice, Pro-gay marriage, Anti-idiot strong believer in separation of church and state, and if you don't like what's on, TURN OFF THE GODDAMN TV! CHANGE THE CHANNEL! Good gravy, if you're so negligent that you need the government to ruin everybody else's fun, go fall in a hole and die.

Except that Christianity is the only religion that does that. And that's only crazy evangelists, like arunma. ;)

Know what? Mine's going away. I believe in stuff, and I usually make it apparant. I stand firmly for capitalisation of appropriate letters and will defend it to the death.

I believe in a Government of the People, by the People, for the People; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; A universal democracy; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of Freedom, Equality, Justice, and Humanity for which many sacrificed their Lives and Fortunes.

Ahh, I see Alak knows about the Mayans and December 21, 2012. Well, I guess i should do a token...thing...too.

Religion: I'm Christian, Baptist specifically. Unfortunately, I don't come from a Christian family, but I switched to the religion a couple years ago. As a result, I may seem a bit fundie. Actually, I am a fundamentalist, and an evangelical. I think the Bible is the inerrent word of God, and that Jesus is the only way (the only way known to man, anyway) that anyone can be saved.

As far as denominations go. I think that most denominations are equally valid. Baptists, Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and all other Christians are going to the same heaven. Offshoots like Mormonism are a bit iffy, but I think God's not going to get his panties in a knot over people with messed up theology.

Regarding gay marriage. Secular marriage of any kind is wrong, and that includes gay marriage. Thus I don't think courts should marry gay (or straight) couples. But if two gay people want to be married in a church, and in a union recognized by God, I have a hard time saying no (that means I'd say yes).

Regarding abortion. It's totally wrong, except for the cases of rape, incest, and certain medical reasons.

Regarding religion in politics. Religion should play an important role in politics, but I certainly don't want the state taking over the church. Therefore, I do believe in some degree of separation of church and state, but not at the level that we have right now. Also I think that it's wrong for Christians to vote Republican (yes, I said Republican, not Democrat). That said, I'm no Pat Robertson. So I don't think God will send anyone to hell over the way they vote.

Regarding other theological beliefs. Well, I of course believe in the Trinity, and all the miracles in the Bible. I also think that there is only one church, to which all the various Christians of the world belong. I also believe in Calvinism, but I think it's merely a result of God's perfect knowledge of the future (that is, nobody is destined for hell before he's born).

OK, I'll admit it. I do believe in a certain form of replacement theology too. I do think that the church is God's holy Israel. However, I also don't think God has abandoned physical Israel, because the Bible says that Israel will be restored through Jesus Christ (see Romans 11).

Let's see? What other weird beliefs do I have? Oh yes! I don't believe in evolution, or other crazy stuff like that. I believe in Old Earth creationism (which states that the earth really is 4.2 billion years old, but that the Bible, when interpreted correctly, is still accurate history). That said, I don't think that evolution is a big threat to Christianity, or anything.

Finally, I also believe in science. Why would God gives us all this science stuff if it were fake?

Political: I'm conservative Democrat, because I think the Democrats (contrary to popular opinion) represent Christian principles far better than the Republicans. Honestly, the Republicans remind me of the dudes who persecuted Jesus. And like I said, I don't think Christians ought to be Republican (not that God will beat 'em for it, or anything). Oops...this is supposed to be the political section.

Social: Uh...I'm not sure what to put here. Being social is good, I guess.

Religion: Atheist. Classic scientific atheist...if physics can explain how the world came to be without needing to invoke a God anywhere, then I guess I just find it really hard to accept that he's hiding in the wings somewhere.

Political: Free-market capitalism. I believe you should be allowed to decide how to spend your own money, and I believe that a properly adminstered capitalist system really is best for everyone.

Social: Libertarian. If it doesn't hurt anyone else, and you're a consenting adult, then you can do what you like - so polygamy, prostitution, drugs, whatever.

Oh, and I also follow JSM's line that indirect harms can be included as harms, provided they're suficiently obvious. So no guns or incitement to violence, etc.

Posted 03 October 2004 - 09:40 PM

Nation: United States

Ethnicity: Swedish-Irish-Native American

Family: Mostly raised by the Swedes, many of whom are 'recent' immigrants (as far as most American families go) and former members of the Democratic Socialist party in the old country.



Religion:
I am a pantheist, in simplest terms. I believe in god, but disagree with the major religions in the world. I believe in unlimited reincarnation, that the universe is cyclical (Big Bang, Big Crunch, Big Bang Again), that there is more than just the physical world, that everything that does exist is a vital part of the whole, that life's purpose is whatever you want it to be, and that morality is a human invention. Evolution is meant to give life an opportunity to adapt in an ever changing world. I do not think humans are special, but rather just one species amongst millions. That's it in an extreme nutshell.

- I have no problem with other religions, just disagree with them.

- I feel that atheists often have the same attitude as the religious in their efforts to spread their own beliefs and condemn those who think differently, and that both sides are equally intolerant of each other. I also fear that religion will eventually be persecuted against, even if that particular religion causes no harm to anyone.

- Religion has been a source of conflict, but less because it's religion and more because mere mortals have an overwhelming desire to be right.




Politics:
I vote Democrat, though only because third parties have no chance of winning and I strongly disagree with most Republicans. I am very moderate. Liberals tend to annoy me almost as much as conservatives do.


- I support market regulations, but mostly just to the extent that they prevent stupid and/or greedy people from ruining the economy. And perhaps to force companies to do away with hidden fees or other deceitful practices.

- I agree that we should go to war to stop a fairly one-sided invasion of another country (i.e.: The First Gulf War), and to uphold other international laws. This should ideally be done within an organization like NATO, as it is a strain for one nation to carry the entire burden of a military campaign.

- I do not, however, think that we should directly involve ourselves in revolutions, nor do I think democracy should be imposed. I have a sinking suspicion that Americans would not value their freedom as much as they do if our forefathers had just been handed a democratic government by the French, if the French had done the majority of fighting in the American Revolution. We shed blood and tears for our country, we shaped our nation as we saw fit, and we very strongly do not want to lose it. Democracy gift-wrapped may not generate the same feelings. At the most, we may support the democratic and secular side of a revolution with arms, training and intelligence. But not do the brunt of the fighting.

- I would generally support having more than two major political parties.

- I love democracy, but am not blind to certain flaws, and hold no grudge against nations with other political systems. Provided the people are happy and treated well.



Social Issues: Somewhat libertarian on social issues, but generally left wing.


- Marriage should be independent of government. It should be a union of love, not a government contract. Therefor, I do not support gay or straight marriage as it currently is handled. The benefits of government marriage (hospital visitation rights, child custody, inheriting property, etc.) should be set up on your own as you see fit, and should be available to anyone. You should be free to make whatever arrangements suit you best.

- Abortion should be legal, but for humane reasons, only practiced during the 1st trimester. Barring medical emergencies.

- I think most people in first world nations acquire far much more stuff than they really need, and that we should willingly live with far less in order to give to the poor. We don't need half the stuff we buy, if not more. Donate to good causes, get by with the essentials. I'm not really opposed to high taxes for this reason. I don't generally like having too much excess money.

- Government health care should be an option (but not the only option) for Americans, as health care costs are too expensive for most people to afford a simple office visit. And insurance companies do not ensure people who are willing and able to pay premiums, just because they have a health condition (i.e.: companies won't help anyone who actually needs a doctor). Meaning a good number of people go without medical care.

- Support welfare, but only if it's proven that someone genuinely needs assistance. As opposed to just not working.

- Pro-hunting, but not for sport. Just for food. A good number of hunters seem to show little respect for the animals they kill beyond 'ooh, nice antlers.' I also wish that would change.

- Hunting rifles and handguns are generally okay in my book, but there's little practical reason for assault rifles or heavier weapons. Apart from having an extra fun time on the shooting range. I also think you should have to go through a gun safety course and pass a test to make sure you won't accidentally kill someone before getting a gun. It's good sense. "Home tutoring" in firearm safety can lead to a continuation of bad firearm habits.

- People are generally way too passionate and dramatic, and not everything is a crisis. ...What? Just sayin'.

w00t yea.
Religion: I'm an Apostolic Pentecostal. Hardcore Christian, hardcore faith. I'll only read the new king james version and I don't get into christian debates because I tend to lose my temper very quickly, when I find out that somebody that is arguing against the bible hasn't even read it. I tend to prefer for people to do their research before they go and argue.

Political: Democrat. My parents are sooo against my being a democrat, mother wants to kick me out, but I convinced her I was too young to know the difference anyway and that all of my friends are democrats.

Social:I am tolerant, but I like to believe that there should be guidelines behind people's behavior. I like to hear reasons for what they're doing, not 'hey, it's just cool'. And if being gay feels right, go for it. Just don't follow the crowd.

Anyway, here is muah!

Religion: Catholic--but I pretty much go by what I believe and don't believe in blindly following ze churches...*can I get a whut whut?*

Political: Somewhere...in the middle..but leaning more towards democrat. I don't like our president that much and i'm voting for Kerry because i'm anti-war and PRO GAY MARRIAGE, hurray!! and yeah..our president seems to have something up his bum that shouldn't be there! :P

Social: I am social yet sometimes i'm a loner. I'm open-minded and not prone to follow others and be a sheep..I am an anti-sheep. Sheep are dumb.

And I like to ask, "If you consider us your sheep, God, then why are they so dumb? What are you trying to say? Huh? Huh? Huh?"

Lmao i'm ok really.. I'm a very quirky person and quick-tempered.

I will be angry if you:

Religion: Christian.   what is wrong with Southern Baptists?

...
...
...
don't get me started.

No offense towards anyone in here, because in my experience, LA-ers are pretty open-minded people. The stereotypical Southern Baptist, however... well, I won't say anything to offend anyone here (I'll make another topic for that later ;) )

My beliefs:

I don't believe in God. I believe in Jesus, but my personal opinion is very similar to the portrayal of Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, i.e. I believe that Jesus was just a man. Nothing more, nothing less. As far as other religions go, I see them as a good thing. It is proven that religion reduces stress and causes people to live longer. I am pro-religion. You may be asking if I see religion as a good thing, why I don't belive in it. Well, it's like Santa Clause. Once you learn that santa isn't real, you can never go back to believing in him again. It was nice to believe in as a kid, but you eventually grow out of it. It's like that for me and religion.

Even though I am not religious, I do have a spiritual side. I'm not buddhist or daoist (though daoism is a very interesting philosophy and one I have considered studying) or anything of that sort, but I do believe that the key to life is inner balance. I find the best descriptions of life in simple things. As Phish says, the key to eternal happiness is simple. "Just go with the flow."

When it comes to politics, I don't care for them. The current system doesn't work, but I don't see it changing in the near future. I'm happy enough with my life as it is, and I don't think the public would allow a president to be elected who would drastically change that, so I'll just let someone who actually cares do the voting.

Other than that, my views on society may be slightly radical. I have a secret anti-establishment streak that most people who are acquainted with me (cept my friends, cause they sometimes see it) don't even suspect. It annoys the $#!+ out of me that there are only 5 major record labels that own all of the money-making records. I mean, Britney Spears' last video cost well over $1,000,000!!! Music is no longer art, man. It's a means for profit. *spits on corporate america*

As for gays and lesbians and social equality and all that, I have some slightly different views here. Some people choose to be gay out of spite or as a means of rebellion. That sickens me. Other than that, I don't see any real difference between someone who is gay and someone who isn't. I have friends who are gay. One of my mom's best friends is gay, and she's been friends with him for close to 14 years. He's a really great guy. And as for lesbians...Well, I love lesbians. And not for any perverted guy reasons, either. I have a close lesbian friend in school. I really respect and admire her because she's not afraid of anything. She knows who she is and is not afraid of what anyone else thinks of her. She doesn't flaunt it or try to hide it. It is simply who she is, nothing more or less than that. That is the way a person should be.

I also have issues with the relations between men and women in modern society. Women's rights are always a big issue. Everyone says women and men are equal. The truth is, they aren't. I'm not saying a woman should be denied the right to work or vote or anything like that. I do think, hoever, that society should embrace these differences rather than debating over what a woman can and can't do. I also think most girls today are too straightforward when it comes to guys. It used to be that coyness was a virtue in a woman. Now, they wear clothes that tend to say that they are marketing themselves to the world. It bothers me.

Summary:
Religion:none
Political:none
Social: Pro-choice, pro-gay marraige, radical beliefs

Anyways, as you can see my beliefs are much more complex than can be summarized in a few simple words. I dunno, I'll probably write a book or something someday. If not to be read, at least to put my own thoughts in order. But for now I have to get to bed. I have school tomorrow, after all.

Political: I'm a reformed ultra-liberal, now a far wiser, happier, conservative Republican. Years ago, I totally bought into all this garbage out wealth being the cause of all problems, how technological progress is the enemy of the environment, all war is bad, blah blah blah.

FORTUNATELY, I was caught off-guard during my Freshman year of college when I inadvertently started reading some stuff that seemed innocuous enough, but ACTUALLY was subtly right-wing. Caught with my liberal prejudices down, I discovered a whole new way of looking at things. I now realize that poverty (not wealth), is the true enemy, that the current risk to the environment is actually DECREASING (despite the screams and yowls of the radical environmentalist establishment), and that sometimes, some people (like dictators, etc) are just vicious b*stards who need to be taken out as cleanly and humanely as possible.

I am a fervent believer in free-market Capitalism and an ardent defender of the triumph of the American Dream. I believe the idea that someone else can spend your money more wisely than you can is as crazy as it sounds. I recognize that Communism is little more than Nazism or Fascism with a better P.R. team. It's based on prejudice against people who are different from you (people who become successful), elitism (a disgust for the intelligence and decision-making capabilities of regular, everyday people), and belligerent rejection of the lessons of experience, all hidden behind a mantle of a twisted self-righteousness.

I can say all this because I used to be a liberal myself, and while I believed myself to be on the side of compassion and justice, looking back, all that prejudice, self-righteous arrogance and elitism really was at the fundamental core of my beliefs.

Religious: I'm a Christian, but not a typical one. I believe Christ did intend for us to love and respect for one another, but this is also the Christ that overturned the money-changer's tables in the church. He knew sometimes you have to take a stand, to make the world a better place. As far as the Bible goes, Matthew, Mark, and Luke seem to me the most important bits. I'm still on the fence about the material regarding other things, like Paul for instance. I'm keeping an open mind. I'm one of those people who believes that God rewards those who work hard (and smart, you also have to live smart) and live responsibly with success and wealth. I don't believe God intends that the good should live in poverty and ignonimity. But at the same time, it's not God that does good for everyone. It's up to us to do good for one another. The world isn't perfect, and it can never be perfectly fair, but I believe that God set up the world such that wealth and prosperity are the rewards for hard work and charity.

I think prejudice is ridiculous. I don't hate women, blacks, Asians, gays, or anything you're born as, nor do I hate people of any other religion. Far as I can tell, Jesus just wanted us to help one another out and make a good world, and I'm down to the ground with that. I reserve my distaste for people who do do harm, or follow harmful causes.

Social: Ties in with religion. People should be respectful to one another, but this doesn't mean you don't stand up against who and what is wrong. I do love (pretty much) everyone, but find it hard to love someone who hurts others, or loves those who hurt others. It's a flaw. I'm human. I pray to God to forgive this, and help me cope with people, but also to help me find ways to fix people who are on the way to doing harm.

POLITICAL: Democrat. I'm not really into politics, but as far as views go, I'm a democrat. 'Nuff said.

RELIGION: I'm an atheist. I rely solely on morals to guide me, and actually believe that because of this, I am open to more ideas because I am not blinded by a thought of displeasing a religious deity with something I may like or dislike.

SOCIAL: I am pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, pro-homosexuality, anti-Bush, anti-PETA... um... lessee. As all of you know, I am an open and proud bisexual and can't stand it when people bash any kind of homosexuality.

All I can think of for now... kinda tired. I'll update later.

POLITICAL: I adhere to no Political Party and only adhere to political ideals that make logical and political sense. Hence, NHS and Welfare is logically morale as people who are poor could not possibly afford huge medical bills.

The current cry of a two-tiered NHS system is an illogical one. You should have a multi-tiered system of paying where your health bills depend on how wealthy you are, but in no way should there be better healthcare for the rich and worse healthcare for the poor.

Politically, freedom is very important to me (even if I were to become a Dictator). Freedom of speech means that your political enemies will always state their mind and if they don't state their mind, how will you know who are your political enemies?

I am against anything that will give more power to the criminals and more money to the criminals. Illegalising arms will do just that, by ensuring that you can only buy arms from criminals (they can charge whatever they like). Drugs are the same, but I'm a bit weary on that topic as drug-use is bad and must be stopped.

RELIGION: It depends, really. As I've stated in a different Religion post, if it means to follow Christ's teachings to be a Christian, then yes I am. If it means you must believe in God and Christ being the Son of God and Christ having resurrected from the dead, then no I am not.

Buddhism, I guess is the closest religion to my own beliefs yet I do not adhere to religion. I just don't buy into any religions.

SOCIAL: Lesse... Pro-choice, Pro-homosexuality (being one myself, I think that's very important), anti-animal rights extremists (do they even know how difficult it is to make drugs without animal testing?), anti-illogical and anti-Kilroy-Silk (and therefore anti-UKIP), pro-Metric System, pro-European.

POLITICAL: Social democracy, as well as social democratic economy system. This creates the highest gross national product, and a large middle class, instead of communism which creates a high rate of poor people and instead of capitalism which creates a high rate of poor people and a high rate of rich people.

RELIGION: Form of wiccan.

SOCIAL: Pro choice, pro gay marriage, pro homosexuality (like Wolf, being one myself makes that an important issue), pro androgyny, pro live and let live. Living in the Netherlands makes everything a lot easier. :)

POLITICAL: I hate Bush with a passion and I'm for the green party. I agree with Kerry too though and if I was American I'd vote for one of them. I am Canadian!! (as per cool beer commercials ;) )

RELIGION: Catholic and a bit of Muslim beliefs. I had a bit of Jewish along my bloodline but I think that the religion has silly rules and has been currupted over time. The Muslim religion is still in its fanatical stage as was Christianity during the Dark Ages. If we stop pissing them off maybe they'll change for the better.

SOCIAL: I'm anti-war, no matter what. Even if there is a slight terrorist threat (or no terrorist threat in Iraq's case). What would Jesus do? Nuke 'em? I'm against gay marriage because they kind of scare me. I'm just not used to it. Maybe eventually I'll change. I love the environment and I hate how people are ruining it. Bad oil companies. Bad...

"Everything within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state"--Il Duce Benito Mussolini, Founder of Fascism.
History will always prove Mussolini right. I plan to post extended attacks on the various ills of other systems that plague the world. Keep in mind I know that other systems have good intentions, and some exceptionally virtous men (Josip Broz Tito come to mind) but the fact remains that no system in the history of the world has been as successful as that of fascism. I wish to return the worl "Totalitarian" to a positive meaning. Every action should be an expression of the state. The Duce and the people should be in your thoughts at all times. This should be a love of thy neighbor and countryman as if he were your brother. This should be expressed in all policies of the nation. A strict dictatorship, progressive social policies and firm economical control. Economy in particular was meant as a servant of the State anything less is an abomination.

*cracks knuckles*

Interesting. So now I get to beat back the right as well as the left.

Greetings, Korhend. I've heard a little of you. I represent Democracy, free enterprise, and the primacy of individual freedom and rights over a powerful state of any kind.

I... am Uncle Sam's favorite nephew.

Pleasure to make your acquaintance.

POLITICAL: I dislike politics very much. It seems that everyone has let us down and will continue to do so. I prefer to stay out of it.

RELIGIOUS: Okay i was originally a half-christian, then i forgot about it and it never crossed my mind. Then i became a full Christian for about a year or so. And now....now i am just floating somewhere. I guess i am an agnostic because i don't know one way or another whether there is a God or how i could come into a personal relationship with Him. Everything in life seems so messed up.

SOCIAL: Apart from the internet my social life is non-existant. In terms of morals well they are all over the place. I don't believe in animal testing, abortion, euthanasia or going to war. Or at least i didn't. Now i am beginning to lose the strong opinions i had and i don't really know what i think is right or what i think is wrong.
And since no one seems to listen to what the people think, and i will never be able to make a difference to anything i just don't see a point in me having a strong opinion in any topic anymore.

POLITICAL: I am pretty sure I am a fascist. As Korhend stated before, Mussolini was right. And Fascism has a HUGE capacity to evolve into something so grand, democracy and communism will become things of the past. War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and puts the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to meet it. All other trials are substitutes, which never really put a man in front of himself in the alternative of life and death. And war will never cease to exist on this planet. We need to wipe away the democratic victory propoganda of World War 2, that looked down upon Fascist governments. Once the Democratic propoganda was added to history books and newspapers around the world as the way a country's government should be, Fascism was marked as Evil without even having a chance to prove that Fascism can work under the right leader.


RELIGIOUS: Christian, without a doubt. I believe in Jesus being the son of God, but more leaning towards Davo's theory (click here for details) than anything else. I believe the New Testament to be correct. Thought I define sin from the laws in the Book of Leviticus, I believe punishment should be derived from the teachings of Jesus.

SOCIAL: My standing on social matters is set firmly into the laws in Leviticus, as I stated. Buy the Bible and read Leviticus if you want to get the specifics.

I thought I'd posted what I was in here :blink: apparently not.

Religion: Seventh day adventist

VERY VERY VERY strong adventist. I study the bible daily. These days, my mum thinks I'm becoming far to "extreme" but I'm not. I'm just trying to keep the 10 commandments, thats all :) Sometimes, things like, uh, my views on the sabbath day may sound insulting, but they're not :) I don't mean to insult (*cough Coltxdoom cough*) I don't not believe blindly, either.

Political: National (in your words, republican)

I think national/republican (In new zealand rupblican is national) is the best. Support the buisness owners! YEAH!
If I lived in America, I wouldn't vote either Kerry or Bush (well, lets pretend kerry didn't lose the vote) but, if I had to vote, I'd pick Bush. Sure, bush made the stupid mistake about going into Iraq. But its not like Kerry could do much about the war. Not only that, Kerry is pro gay marriage, and pro a heck of a lot of other stuff I'm not. There's also another reason why not, but it may be a little insulting to some people (its to do with religion)

Social-

Pro life (if that means anti abortion) 'cos heck, just adopt the child out! Anti gay marriage. Infact, no offense to anyone, but I'm completley anti gayness in general. I believe everyone is equal, regardless of whether you're female/male and your race. Don't like the violence and stuff on tv. I generally don't go to like, M and R16+ movies either. I don't listen to music. Music of today is far to stupid. Not only that, its ruining the good side effects that used to come with music. We're becoming more and more immune to its good, like antibiotics. (Not sure if its social, just decided to throw that in anyway)

All in all, my views on life are shaped by what the bible tells me is right :) I'll try not to offend, and I'll try to be a bit more, uh, well, I'll try not to be as sharp as I was before ;)

Windmill: just thought you might want to know that all the posts in LA were deleted (which is why you couldn't find yours in here). So thanks for reposting.
