Does Unemployed Atheist @ChrisRenfrow Need to Work on His Anger Issues?

Posted on | September 6, 2013 | 91 Comments

Let’s begin with some helpful background:

After Kentucky atheist Chris Renfrow first showed up in my Twitter timeline today, I was informed that he was a high school English teacher in Louisville. But then I learned that he had recently been laid off from that position and someone pointed out that Renfrow’s LinkedIn profile indicated a rather . . . erratic work history, with five jobs in the past 10 years. Renfrow worked two years (2008-2010) at a school in Arizona, a job he left in October 2010.

October? Why does a teacher leave a job just a few weeks into the school year? But then again, why did Renfrow last only a year as a teacher in Jefferson County, Kentucky? Or only five months as a sales manager at J.C. Penney? Does he have . . . issues?

Renfrow’s argument that enforcing statutory rape law is unfair to people who have sex with minors and his “angry atheist” act may be correlated to some kind of underlying personality problem.

But whatever you do, don’t tell Chris Renfrow he should get help with his problems, because he might call you ugly names.

UPDATE: What a cheerful guy he is, huh?

Like I said, don’t try to tell angry atheist Chris Renfrow he should seek help for his problems, or he might call you ugly names.

    Or much of anything in the realm of actual, real-life science, for that matter. To them, it’s merely their version of a secular “State Religion” of the Romans. (Their “Heart Religion, of course, being their self-obsessed narcissism)

    He’s not a real atheist, anyway. He merely calls himself that to justify his obsession with himself. If his fiancée is foolish enough to follow through, he’ll be divorced in 3-5 years once she finds out the only one he has room in his blackened heart for is him and him alone.

    Try tallying up the body count of atheists in this last century or so alone. Let’s see… Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot — was Tojo an atheist or a Shintoist? Worshipping your ancestors seems pretty close—

    He certainly didn’t pass on the chance to double down on the stupid, did he? He actually acts like the teens he claims to want to help.

    Come to think of it, most teens are more mature than that.

    Now bear in mind I am not advocating violence against kiddy diddlers. I’m just talking about warning shots if they get within a hundred yards of a minor.

    So highlighting publicly posted tweets and providing snarky and witty commentary is possibly libellous, but calling someone a douche nozzle and a c**t is merely polite liberal banter.

    He does appear to have intimate experience of a douche nozzle though…

    I think you just highlighted the fundamental problem with those fixated on teenage sex. They haven’t quite grown up yet. Another part of the left wing agenda is to extend adolescence indefinitely.

    And his numbers are off, too. Let’s consider that, through Satan, death enters the world. So, while God actively kills 2M, Satan kills, as a direct result of his actions, EVERYBODY. Lucifer is at least guilty of depraved indifference, or reckless endangerment, a billion times over.

    To be more precise, he’s talking about the things which are covered under the so-called “Romeo and Juliet” laws, laws which mitigate the statutory rape laws for older teenagers fornicating with younger teenagers; I don’t see any advocacy of allowing 32 year olds to copulate with 14 year olds.

    However, whether he agrees with the way the laws are written does not relieve him of the statutory — there’s that word again! — requirement under which he fell as a teacher to report incidents of statutory rape if he became aware of them. I did ask him about that, but it’s still fairly early on Saturday morning, and he has not yet responded.

    For poor little #FreeKate, Florida does have an R&J law, but its parameters did not cover the lovely Miss Hunt; it lessened penalties for up to 23 year old adults copulating with down to 16 year old minors, but Miss Hunt’s victim was only 14 at the time, and is still only 15.

    The real problem for Mr Renfrow is that he not only wants to be the students’ teacher, he wants to be their friend as well. Being kids’ friends has been the worst thing that parents have ever done, replacing teaching responsibility and imposing discipline with understanding and being cool, and we can see what the results have been: skyrocketing unwed pregnancies, and soaring crime rates. In trying to be their friend, he has ceased — now officially as well as practically — being their teacher. In not wanting to see some bad consequences happen to these good, innocent teenagers, he has helped to prop the door open to far worse consequences, and he has done it all by being a good-hearted and understanding man.

    You two are veritable skank magnets. Their lairs must smell like breweries.

    (BTW if you really want to send them into a rabid frenzy, that word is one they haven’t been able to stomach reappropriating. It not only implies 1) “slut, but an uneducated one/white trailer trash” and there’s nothing a pseudo-intellectual hates more than their “intelligence” and urbane street cred questioned, and 2) the actual consequences of their “free love” lifestyle, i.e., STDs up the yin yang)

    Does Unemployed Atheist @ChrisRenfrow Need to Work on His Anger Issues proof of why #HomeSchool is safer for children

    Comparing the Florida and Kentucky laws in reference to the “Romeo & Juliet” loopholes might be interesting. One might say that granting a seven-year “window” for sex with a 16-year-old (as Florida does) is quite lenient, and therefore the harsher treatment of the 18-year-old who sleeps with someone 15 or younger is more understandable. If your appetite is for teenagers, just leave them alone until they turn 16. This doesn’t seem too much to ask of young adults.

    However, my larger point is this: No matter how much latitude one grants in an R&J exemption, you have to draw a line somewhere. And when people start in on these “age is just a number” arguments, decrying that any particular age limit is arbitrary, it is hard to miss the similarity to complaints made by convicted child molesters that what they did wasn’t really wrong. Start smudging up the bright lines and talking about “grey areas” … well, where does this argument lead? And where will it stop?

    Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of Spanglish knows a bruja is a witch. I bet Ash heap fits the label. How many want to bet she’s grossly obese, full of piercings and ludicrous tats, has a butch haircut and probably Kate Hunt’s next paramour after the ghetto queen kicks her to the curb.

    Another aspect of the Kaitlyn Hunt case is that most similar situations are handled with plea bargains. Kate rejected two plea bargains, and then blatantly violated the terms of her pre-trial probation.

    Her present legal predicament is entirely self inflicted. She is either not very bright, or she’s gotten some really terrible advice. I do not rule out a combination of the two.

    There are two types of friend you be to a kid. One is a friend as you can have among equals. This is not available to a parent.

    Second is as a teacher-friend. This is the only type you may be as an adult to a child. This is the type that tells a son that wants you to cosign a loan so he can get out from under a load of debt you advised against making, you got yourself in, you can get yourself out” when you refuse to cosign. I had to do that, and my son resented it, but we have a very good relationship now, and he learned a difficult lesson that remains with him to this day.
