Most People Don’t Like Me

Most People Don’t Like Me

Most people don’t like me; No I’m not suffering from delusions, it’s really true;
When people meet me, most of them walk away and want nothing to do with me; There are others who accept me at first but after a while,
they decide they don’t like me either!

Whenever I go somewhere, and I’ve traveled extensively, I try to make friends;
because I really care, but I’ve found that there are very few who want to be my friend; Even though I don’t do anything to hurt anyone, they blame me for being mean to them and causing all sorts of trouble!

I must admit, I am different and because of that people don’t accept the kind things I do for them, They think I have ulterior motives for the kind way I treat them,
but I really don’t!

I must say also that since I’ve been around for a while, I have a lot of good advice for others; But most of the time when I share that advice, people don’t want to hear it! They won’t even try my idea of how to go about doing something; Of course when everything goes wrong, I try to explain that I was right and they should have listened to me but then they tell me I’m full of pride! It’s so frustrating when you know so much and people won’t let you help them, you know what I mean? They go around calling me a know it all, but can I help it if I know more than anyone? No, I really do know everything! Now you’re beginning to not like me anymore, I can tell, but I’m not prideful at all, I’m just being honest!

Speaking of honesty, that’s the thing people seem to hate the most about me! Whenever someone asks me my opinion, I don’t hold back, I can’t help it, I want to be completely honest, isn’t that the way to have an open relationship? But when I’m completely honest about what I’m thinking, well, let’s just say people have actually
tried to kill me!

There are those who spread lies about me too, No, I’m really not paranoid, I have proof! So many lies have been spread about me that before I even try to befriend certain people, As soon as they find out who I am, they already don’t like me and won’t even give me the benefit of the doubt! I’m guilty before their eyes without any concrete evidence!

I even wrote a book about myself explaining my side of the story; Some people bought the book and some people read it; but deep down inside, I know they really don’t believe me because they don’t act like it! Even the people I call my friends don’t always really believe what I say; Really it’s true! I know it’s true because even though they say they believe me, they show by their actions toward me that they don’t!

You know, just because I point out people’s faults all the time they think I am bad; But I’m only trying to help because I know how much what they’re doing is hurting them; Then they say I’m arrogant just because I insist I don’t have any faults! But it’s not pride it’s just a fact, why should I deny it? Sometimes it’s awful lonely at the top!

Do you know what it’s like to love someone, yet they have so many walls built up against you that you can’t get in? Then you know what I go through all the time! Now I could just burst through those walls but I know that they would get hurt in the process; And I don’t go around hurting anybody! Contrary to what you may have heard; No, I’ve never hurt anyone! I’ve never done anything wrong to any one; I’m even good to the people who don’t like me!
Really it’s true!

Oh by the way let me introduce myself, I really want you to give me the benefit of the doubt for your own good because you will really miss out on all that I can offer you in our friendship. Now before I tell you my name brace yourself because you’ve probably heard of me, And I don’t want you to hold any of
those things against me. They really are lies.

I want you and I to be the best of friends, and I really am glad you took the time to hear me out because maybe YOU AND I can have that kind of relationship few people will have with me; You know: I really must say that I love you already, just the way you are, I really mean it, and I hope you can love me too and not hold my reputation or my different ways against me, my name is God, Give me the benefit of the doubt
and I promise I won’t let you down and in the end,
You will realize that I was right all along!

“But this cometh to pass,
That the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law,
They hated me without a cause.”
John 15:25

Satanic Statue Unveiling Moved to Secret Detroit Venue

Satanic Statue Unveiling Moved to Secret Detroit Venue

DETROIT, Mich. — The unveiling of a Satanic statue depicting Baphomet being flanked by children has been moved to a secret ticketed location and the original venue has pulled out of the event.

As previously reported, the New York-based Satanic Temple had scheduled the unveiling for July 25th as it had been booked at Bert’s Warehouse in Detroit. The group says that it chose Detroit because it has a “good community” of followers, with over 200 members.

But a group of pastors decided to rally against the event, and also contacted the owner of Bert’s Warehouse, Bert Dearing, to request that the Baphomet unveiling be canceled. Dearing told the Associated Press on Monday that when he realized who had booked the event and what his facility would be used for, he gave the Satanic Temple their money back.

“Detroit is a very religious area,” Dearing told the outlet. “When I rented the place, I just thought it was a church. I didn’t know about the unveiling of a statue. We weren’t aware they were into Devil worshiping.”

But the Satanic Temple asserts that they don’t worship the Devil. And while some believe that the group is actually run by atheists posing as Satanists, they contend that the characterization is also incorrect.

“We consider ourselves non-theistic Satanists,” Detroit spokesperson Jex Blackmore told the Metro Times. “Just as much as we get people who think that we’re into the biblical concept of Satan, we get people who think that we’re just posing as Satanists, and not truly Satanists or whatever you would say. Non-theistic Satanism is part of modern Satanism.”

Due to opposition, the Satanic Temple says that it has now moved the event to secret venue in the city and admission will be ticketed. While the unveiling is set to take place in Detroit, the group says that the statue will not remain there.

The Satanic Temple had raised funds in 2013 to have the statue created in its effort to make a statement about the Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma state capitol, and sought to have the Baphomet monument placed next to the Ten Commandments display.

As previously reported, the New York-based Satanic Temple issued a news release about its intentions two years ago following the filing of a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which asserted that the presence of the Ten Commandments display on government property violated the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution.

The Satanic Temple said that it offered to to donate a statue of Baphomet to be placed near the Ten Commandments display in order to “appease the ACLU’s concerns.”

“The statue will serve as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures,” spokesperson Lucien Greaves explained in his application to the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission. “The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

Last May, it was announced that the statue was nearing completion, which features the goat-headed figure Baphomet making the sign for the occult as he sits upon a throne with a pentagram overhead. Children fixate their eyes upon him on both sides.

In September, Seventh District Court Judge Thomas Prince concluded that the Ten Commandments monument serves a historical purpose and is not solely the presentment of a religious message as it sits on a plot of land that contains 51 other expressive monuments.

But the case was then appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which ruled last month that the monument violates the state Constitution’s prohibition on using government property to support a religion. The case is now on appeal.

Although the Oklahoma decision consequently resulted in the group nixing its plans to place the monument next to the Ten Commandments display, the unveiling is moving forward. The Satanic Temple now says that it will seek to erect the monument adjacent to a similar Decalogue display in Arkansas.

The group similarly raised concerns last December when it was granted permission to erect its “snaketivity scene” near a nativity scene on the Michigan capitol grounds. The statue featured a snake wrapped around a Satanic cross, with the snake offering the book “Revolt of the Angels” as a gift.

Satanists Unveil Statue for Oklahoma Capitol

The Satanic church that applied for a permit to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma state-capitol building has unveiled its proposed design.

The 7-ft.-tall (2.1 m) sculpture would feature Satan depicted in the form of Baphomet, a bearded, goat-headed, winged hominid with horns seated on a throne beneath a pentagram with two smiling children to either side.

The group responsible for the proposed monument, the New York–based Satanic Temple, applied to place a monument to Satan at the capitol building in Oklahoma City after the Oklahoma ACLU sued to have a Ten Commandments statue — erected in 2012 — removed on the grounds that its presence discriminated against other religions, the Associated Press reports.

In addition to representing the Satanic religion, the monument “will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation,” said Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves.

Besides the Satanic Temple, a number of other groups have made requests to erect monuments, including a Hindu group, an animal-rights group and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission subsequently issued a moratorium on new requests pending resolution of the ACLU lawsuit.
