Oprah thinks atheists are not good dating prospects

Postby hocl » Thu Apr 16, 2009 4:02 am UTC

Oprah is heavily promoting Steve Harvey's book "Act Like a Lady, Act Like a Man", which in addition to rather disturbing views on sex relations, contains this gem: "Let me direct: if you meet a man who doesn't have a relationship with God, he doesn't go to church and has no intention of ever going, and he has no belief system he can point to as the guiding force in his life, then it's a problem. After all, what moral barometer does he answer to if not to God? What going to make him even consider being loyal to you? What's going to make him do right by you and the kids? What's going to make him feel whole?"

Oprah also believes that a group with over 9000 penises are after her children. It's actually just 9000, one of them died recently. :(

In her defense, what do you think the odds are that she's actually read the thing? :wink:

Kidding. She's done two whole shows with the man, she's got to know what he's said. This is sad, but I'm not really sure how much it matters-- the only people who would be affected by these statements are 1) people who already believe them, and 2) people who are willing to believe shit just 'cause some comedian on Oprah said it, who are probably screwed anyway.

I think Vegeta must have misread the Scanner.

Someone should stand up and compliment Oprah on her well-developed belief system that she got directly from God with no misintrepretation or complete fabrication. Except that I doubt she's even read the whole Bible, meaning that her belief system is based entirely on a small part of a translation of compilation of questionable facts which are hearsay written down a hundred years after miracles allegedly happened.

And we should certainly commend her parents for spelling her name just like the dude in the Bible. Oh right... Do I give a shit what some fundamentalist Christian douchebag thinks? Lets see, the chances of me ever actually wanting to have a committed relationship with somebody who takes this dude's advice seriously were probably already at zero percent to begin with.

However, I do apparently need to remind Oprah that the religious right lost the culture war and therefor this whole discussion is pointless. Atheists won. Game over.

Oh, crap: I was not even aware that there was a culture war, let alone that the atheists won... :oops:
Pity, I could have tipped off a platoon or two of socialist battle nuns- which would have gone berserk on both parties, of course. :wink:
I do not know if they have chainsaw swords, but that could have been arranged :twisted:

Anyway, I concur with what others have said about the dumbasseritude (it is a word now) of that argument in particular and of Oprah in general.

I'd say it's a problem if he has no system of belief to guide his life, no moral code; I just don't think the only acceptable moral codes come from deities, that the only decent belief systems are religions.

I think she should be congratulated on having such a solid, self-consistent belief system.

I would also enquire as to how she has managed to stay out of prison, after murdering so many people because they were members of other religions (Deuteronomy 13:7-12), worked on Sunday (Exodus 31:12-15), or were non-virgin brides (Deuteronomy 22:20-21).

Atheists think that Oprah fans are not good dating prospects.

A scholar could spend years listing all the new-age, unscientific, mystical, anti-rational nonsense that Oprah promotes on her show. Anyone who values rationality, whether they are atheist, theist or agnostic, should probably think twice before dating anyone that takes Oprah seriously. Also, anytime someone says that atheists can't be moral people I strongly suspect that that person isn't really a good person, but only acts that way because of a fear of an all seeing judge.

I totally agree. Besides, isn't it better to do something good for it's own sake than to avoid eternal fire and brimstone?

Anyway, why is it that people forget that atheists and agnostics are significantly underrepresented in federal prisons?

The "moral barometer" most atheists aim to follow is reason. Some are utilitarians, some are kantians, some are nihilists, whatever, The point is that atheists aren't more immoral than the religious community. Just because you have moral beliefs doesn't mean you follow them well. It's the same with religious people as it is with atheistic people. I have moral beliefs that I don't follow, out of laziness or selfishness or whatever.
Honestly, are religious people only moral because God wants them to be? If god was somehow disproven, would they just riot all the time? Maybe some moral beliefs will change, like blaspheming and masturbation, etc. That is, the ones that are only supported by the Bible, and not by reason or looking out for the greater good or anything like that. People's moral beliefs should be dictated by a greater good than just appeasing a huge divine figure.

Is there anything we can do to protest this? Some kind of campaign against Oprah?

Not dating, but in high school I took a first aid course. The instructor thought that Oprah was a good source of information, and thus we spent a large portion of said class watching tapes of her show.

I am sad to say my mother usually takes Oprah seriously (though she doesn't mindlessly follow Oprah, so hoorah for hope)

But atheists and agnostics are under represented even in anonymous surveys of prison populations. (unfortunately quick google search doesn't find a satisfactory citation for this claim)

There are however a variety of other explanations that don't require assuming that atheists are inherently more law-abiding: First, people who are not doing well in life might turn to religion. It doesn't get much worse than being in prison. Second, unscrupulous people may pick up early on that being religious or acting religious provides benefits such as being more able to con fellow believers.

I'd also speculate that some of it may be due to the fact that prisons and parole boards treat prisoners better who are showing signs of religion. That doesn't however do a very good job of explaining the anonymous surveys. Maybe there's an aversion to cognitive dissonance or something similar?

Oprah understands her place as a daughter of Han (thus immersed in sin, which is why her skin is black -- with sin) and as a woman, worth 1/4 of what a man is, right?

Because if she's consistent in her value system and accepts those humbling realities as recounted by an infallible God, I'm willing to accept that humans without religion must be evil.

Not only that, but the assertion that being underrepresented in prison means your population is more moral than others is extremely skewed. "There are lots of black people in prison" and "There are not a lot of atheists in prison" does not warrant the conclusion that black people are mean and atheists are nice. There are plenty of other explanations that we don't have to go into in this thread.

I've been reading this book, and it's complete shit. His argument is that men provide women with money in return for sex, and that is the only viable relationship model. Also, men are grunting pigs who will sleep around without a second thought, so it's the woman's job to control him and provide enough sex to satiate his animal needs.

There's also a section entitled "How to Get the Ring", as if marriage is a basically a bear trap that you lay for your boyfriend.

Actually, the real problem is that Oprah started her own church to say that everyone is holy and can get to heaven through themselves and not Jesus.

So, is peoples problem here Oprah having an unpopular opinion, or the fact that other people tend to follow her blindly? The woman is allowed to have an opinion. Do you feel as if she has some "responsibility" to not endorse unpopular opinions given her power? I see no problem that some folks think a good relationship with thier god is an integral part of who they are, and a trait they require in a partner.

That's not the problem, the issue is with the presentation. "You can't date someone without a moral code, so you should never date an atheist" is categorically dismissing atheists who follow moral codes, like Secular Humanists.

It's not an opinion. The book is claiming that atheists are inherently immoral, that they will leave their wives, etc. This is fault. Is the morality of atheists incompatible with religious folks? Well, usually. Not many atheists think it's wrong to say "Jesus Christ!". But for more secular issues of morality, I doubt there is a difference between atheists and the religious. I'm sure that atheists are just as loyal to their wives, and don't murder or abuse or anything more than the religious.

There is a point here that I agree with (hold your pitchforks, I'll get to it first): That atheists and religious folk don't make a good pairing. Yes, they will be okay in the beginning if they ignore it or are very tolerant, but [especially with Christians, with the conversion thing] eventually it will come up [generalizing]. How about having children together - which belief system/lack thereof will they go with? Would it not cause problems that the mother doesn't want the kids to go to a church she thinks does harm, and the father [to be stereotypical] wants the kids to learn his beliefs? Kids are not able, at least at young ages, to decide this for themselves.

IF a child is too young to be asked if he wants to go to church, why would you bring him there anyway? He won't understand a thing. Bring him to church only if he expresses a wish.

Some people are incapable of forming rational beliefs. That's fine. But when stupid people go SPREADING their idiocy on national television, I get upset. Most people who believe in God only do so because they were told to by someone they respected. If we could get rid of Oprah we could give rational beliefs to everyone, even if they wouldn't be "educated" per se.

Except the type of people that go to church don't often follow that reasoning; why not wait until the kid is old enough to reason it out whether he should get baptized or not? Doesn't happen.

They believe if you don't bring the kid they are the ones sinning (not the kid, because the kid doesn't know to go so the responsibility falls on them)
