pagans + christians = funny
, aside from being full of over-sensitive wankers and managed by the ultimate worst moderator ever, has the most hilarious post/comment threads right now. So go. Read. Laugh mightily.Post Uhm... wha!?, roannachan
CL: Oh and... *points to the Psalm thingy at the bottom of the page* Can we change this to just regular print (it was in a nice script font). See cuz, it's the Bible. You can't use cursive for the Bible. There's no cursing, it's God's words, so you can't use cursive.
You should totally hex her.lots42
I thought Pagans don't -do- hexes. asterix_pop
Depends what version they are. 2.0 and up have the hex feature.smut_queen
Dammit, I'm only version 1.05. :(twinsais
but the fact is, you don't USE demons. You ask nicely, you beg, you cajole, and finally, you command, but when it comes right down to it, you end up doing way more for them than they do for you. And like the worst customers in existence, they expect you to be grateful for the privilige of being kicked around by them. However, when all is said and done, I'd much rather work with them than with angels.
Angels are just pricks.amadruadaboleyn
Or pee on them.
Say it's a baptism.dbaxdevilsfan
Ya know, I hope that one of these days God tells one of these idiots to go out & kill all the other God Warriors, because they're getting the message all wrong.asterix_pop
God did this, he told all the muslims one thing and all the christians another, and he's sitting up there on a cloud laughing his ass off as we speak.neaira
So what did he tell the Jews? Or are they all up there laughing with him, since we're God's chosen people and all.starknightgoku
"Oy, let them do their thing already!" Current Mood: amused

Philosphy In A Teacup
A close, dear friend of mine is a rabid, religion hating atheist, and I'm something of a spiritual person, which makes our friendship really odd, in some lights. We both agree that if we had known about each other's views at the start, the friendship wouldn't have happend . . . probably.
Normally, by mutual agreement, we don't discuss theology, but I was telling her about a science fiction story I read once. In it, there's this one Christian on a deep space exploration ship. Just one, and the rest of the crew, all athesists, laugh at him for his beliefs. The ship comes across a system where the star had gone nova thousands of years ago and appears to have taken a planet full of life with it. So he does the math and realizes that the light of the Supernova would have reached Earth just in time to be the Star that guided the Three Wise Men to Baby Jesus. Then he angsts about how God killed the planet in order to bring His son to the human race.
The whole story was rather preachy which always makes me roll my eyes, but it is something to make you stop and think. Would God really have killed an entire planet, just to announce the birth of His son? Questions like that.
Her response, and I qoute: I get angry because religion, particularly xianity, affects my life in a negative way. I get angry because I don't understand why people can't open their eyes and just see what is there I get angry because it isolates me from people, because they let this myth dictate their lives and they also try to push it on others and it gets in to the laws. When you can look at something and see that it's fake- like when you can spot fake boobs and suddenly they don't give you the twinge in the shorts now- it pains me to know that people won't open their eyes because they are afraid to think for themselves because of some supposed afterlife or whatever BS.
I agree with her up to a point. But for me, my faith is more along the lines of God does His thing, I do mine, and if He needs me I got His back, but otherwise, we don't talk much.
To which, she pointed that out that if that was the case, what's the point?
So I thought about it, and decided that it really boiled down to a fear of the unknown. It's like having a stuffed teddy bear, something to hold on to at night when it's dark. It's not an excuse to claim superiority, or hate indiscriminatly, it's that stuffed Bear you still hang on to because you're just used to having it there, even if you have outgrown it.
Does the teddy bear make the dark go away? Does it light up? No. But you grab it, you hold on to it, and somehow it makes you feel better. That's what it means to me personally.
That's when I realized something along the lines of; "Dude! Jesus is my teddy bear!"
From there it went into that Santa Claus, Santa being God as they share certain traits, and her and me raising hell in High School. Current Mood: GEEBAS ON PARADE! I'M A SQUIRREL! AH HA HA HA HA HA HA! . . . what? why are you looking at me like that?

And He probably would say that too
. Probably has.
I see Him sitting up there going: "What? Wait! No! You're not supposed to -- you call this love? I SAID LOVE! LOVE! No! Fred, will you shut up?"
Speaking of people named Fred, has anyone seen Fred Phelp's letters to the King of Sweeden? They're fascinating. It's like reading a letter written by two people fighting over the pen.Letter oneLetter twoLetter three
Fun for the whole family. Current Mood: I am the only person on LJ worth reading. Also, my ego is eating Los Angeles.

Anne Rice to write (auto)biography of Jesus Christ in his younger daysDear Reader,
For over ten years I've wanted to do this book- Jesus in his own
words. For five years I've been obsessed with how to do it, and for
the last three years I've been consumed with nothing else.
The ultimate questions, the ones distilled from a thousand others,
were so obvious as to be frightening. What does it feel like to be
Jesus? What did it feel like to be God and Man as a child?... In all
my career, I don't think I've ever faced such a daunting task. And
there were moments when I came near to giving up. I prayed. I asked
for guidance. I scrapped hundreds of pages. At moments, I was on the
verge of accepting that perhaps I couldn't do what had to be done
I'm not a priest. I can't be one. I'll never be able to go to the
altar of the Lord and say the words of consecration at Mass, "This
is my body. This is my blood." No, I can't work that magnificient
Eucharistic miracle. But in humility, I have attempted something
transformative which we writers dare to call a miracle in the
imperfect human idiom we possess. It's to bring Him here in the form
of a story, and that story is Christ the Lord.

I did not say this
I asked my brother, what he'd think god would do, or rather type, if he had the Internet.
"I shall smite j00 with my l33t skillz. ph34r"
Um. Current Mood: weird
