‘Panicked’ London train commuters force open doors, flee onto tracks when man reads the Bible aloud

Commuter Train

When I first read this I thought this is from The Onion. This has to be a joke. Satire?

Witnesses described the scene as “panicked” and a “commotion.”

Sadley, it’s neither. It appears to be serious, and of all the news I’ve read in a while, this may be the saddest thing I’ve read in a while. A man on the subway was reading from the Bible, and people were panicked and literally jumping from a train.

I understand if you don’t believe in God why you may be upset, but panicked!? What exactly is it about the Word of God that would set a “non-believer” into a panic mode? It’s just a book right? Nonsense? Do people panic over Santa Clause stories? I know that the Bible says to fear the Lord, but I don’t think this is what the writer had in mind.

So, what exactly would cause people to actually panic over the Word of God? If you ask me, I think deep down they know there’s power in the Word of God, and they don’t want to be confronted with it.

Stop Using the Word Homophobe

Yes! Calling someone a HOMOPHOBE is OFFENSIVE!
Yes! Calling someone a HOMOPHOBE is OFFENSIVE!

Stop using the word homophobia. It’s offensive. It implies an irrational fear, which very few people have. Most people who oppose homosexuality have good reasons for doing so; there’s nothing irrational about it. Calling someone a homophobe in response to someone’s argument is like responding by calling them ass hole. That’s not a counter-argument; it’s name-calling. And did I mention offensive?

Yeah, I know there are a few people that are actually homophobic, but they’re few and far between, and to use it for every person that is anti-gay is foolish and inaccurate. Did I mention offensive?

When one person calls another person a homophobe, I feel like the targeted person would be correct to respond with dumb ass.


The Fear of Being Called Phobic

In The Fear of Being Called Phobic, Jim Goad discusses the false phobias plaguing our culture today; the phobias not invented to describe irrational fears, but invented to silence those who oppose the "enlightened" left. And he wants to know:

And who gets to decide which fears are genuine and which are baseless? Is it wrong to be germaphobic if the germs are going to kill you?

And if the germ was going to kill you, it wouldn’t be an irrational fear anymore, but a rational fear. What would that be called? It’s no longer a phobia.

But the fear of being called phobic is real, and it’s rational. Because being labeled phobic can have consequences; particularly homophobic, as seen here, here, and here.

The best thing to do—at least if you want a career and a social life—is to stick your head in a hole and shut the fuck up.

So how about fear of the left? You know, the tolerant, compassionate, “Liberals are better Christian’s than Conservatives” left?

Because they’re the ones pushing faux-phobias down our throats and relishing in the idea of ruining people’s lives for the betterment of society. Because society will be made in an image that they decide, and anyone that gets in their way will be socially and professionally run over. They call themselves Social Justice Warriors, but that’s not accurate. They’re Social Justice Terrorists, because as Jim Goad points out, they push their agenda through fear:

Bullets are nice, but much of political power—maybe most of it—comes from successfully instilling fear and guilt in your opponents.

In that respect, they’re not much different than Islamic terrorists; pushing their agenda through the destruction of those who oppose them.
