Default If You Own or Wish to Buy a Gun, You Suffer from Mental Illness

If you do not support gay marriage, you suffer from mental illness.

If you deny anthropological climate change, you suffer from mental illness.

If you disagree with a progressive income tax, you suffer from mental illness.

If you believe religion should be taught in the classroom, you suffer from mental illness.

If you believe Federal Reserve Bank conspiracy theories, you suffer from mental illness.

If you oppose a military attack on a hostile foreign nation, you suffer from mental illness.

Anyone who suffers from mental illness must not own a gun, for the sake of the children.

Alright, you're either parodying someone, or you're a liberal who wants to attack Iran?

Anyway, how about this one: If you blame inanimate objects for the actions of people, you suffer from a mental illness.

I thought if you do not support gay marriage it meant you were a closet homosexual.

Are you saying being homosexual is a mental illness?

One of my bosses is gay, but I dont hate or fear him, I just dont agree with his lifestyle. Maybe you are use to dealing in absolutes because you are mentally ill.

Its my way or the highway!

What is your attitude toward mental illness Are you having some issues your seeking help with?

Let's assume that all the symptoms you listed are indicators of a damaged brain and they all apply to you. Do you think that because you are mentally ill you can't get well? There is a tremendous stigma with some people, to think of themselves as defective. Stephan Hawkings, for example is.

The problem is that we torture ourselves over our defects because we were taught to hate them as children. This teaching and believing in it was the real mental illness. Imagine a child with enormous artistic ability being raised by folk who think art is sick. We have been indoctrinated to be upside down in the world, to hate what is good, etc, to reject what can be healthy and normal, etc. Try to love who you really are without regard who what you were taught was the only way and you won't care if you're mentally ill because you won't be. Good luck to you.

.... As long as your thing isn't stringing people up by their intestines and finger painting with their blood.

We frown on that sort of thing.

What do you think would cause that behavior?

You are the one telling people to be themselves, ignore what society tells them and be free.

I'm saying wear some pants and don't get too carried away.

I own guns, many guns, including an "assault rifle"

I support gay marriage.

I do not deny anthropological climate change.

I think we need to pay for the government spending of the past, present and future whether we voted for it or not.

I don't believe religion should be taught in the classroom.

I believe in peace, not war.

I am pro choice.

Stick that in your preconceived notions pipe and smoke it... or shove it up your ass if you like.

Most people who own guns probably shouldn't, just like most people who have the right to speak use it to spew stupidity rather than profound truths. Fortunately, the Bill of Rights in its majestic equality allows people to look like idiots exercising both their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.

I support gay marriage

I'm unqualified to discuss anthropological climate change, so I can't confirm or deny it.

I disagree with the income tax.

I don't believe in public schooling, and don't care what private schools teach, let the market regulate them.

I believe the FRB shouldn't exist, and they operate purely to try and legitimize their own existence.

I don't support any preemptive attacks on hostile foreign nations.



Full fledged anarchist here. I suffer from severe anti-social behavior because my government indoctrination failed. The virus did not take.
