LOL that is good.
Long Live Shervin Of The North!
might as well have a conversation with a potted plant. i can't believe people let this precious life pass them by in the hopes they reach somewhere better when they die. i've seen people die, it doesn't look like eternal fucking happiness to me. it looks like death.
"I dread beyond all else the growth of the petty tyranny of restrictive legislation, the transference of disciplinary authority from the judiciary to the constabulary, the abandonment of every constitutional safeguard of individual liberty."
People of faith have, by definition, rejected logical analysis in favour of belief. In fact it is seen as a virtue to believe in spite of the evidence. Trying to conduct a logical argument is pointless, and therefore no fun.
My bikes: A random assortment of junk I found in a barn and fixed up.
oh man. Ive got this chick on my facebook who keeps posting status updates about god and how wonderful it is that he is in her life and i dont feel like deleting her as we have friends in common. Ive had to bite my tongue MANY times
When i head to canada i can delete people like her. She is a lovely girl but far out! I unsubscribed from her status updates a long time ago as i dont deal well with people trying to shove religion down my throat.
Speaking of which, my heavily religious fat housemate has now twice in the past two days told me that my haircut is crap. Then this morning he has the nerve to ask for some brownies. Hell no!

Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.
Every 6mos a thread like this appears, and always as successful as the OP's FB chat.....why?
I grew up in a VERY Christian family. It's hard to break out of. REALLY really hard because they get you with fear... it's the most powerful tool they have and it works.
I used to be one of them and it's hard looking back and seeing how stupid you really were. Not as dumb as that broad is but you do really have to give up a lot of rational thought.
I'm with the OP here.
Have had very similar conversations with Christians and some were even more demeaning, condescending, and outright derisive to other beliefs. And this is right to my face without blinking an eye. Yet they don't even know that they are doing it, because it is engrained in their thought patterns.
You can't win with them when they are on a mission.
Jesus Camp is a good one to watch.
