Disdain and respect don't have to be mutually exclusive.
90% of my family and friends I grew up with are "fundies" (fundamental Christian), and while I love them all to death, and respect the religion I grew up with, I also disdain a lot of what it causes them to do/say/think. There's a ton of positives to Christianity and other religions, but there's also a lot of ignorance and anti-intellectualism that goes along with it at times. Discussing anything to do with homosexuality/women's body rights/science in schools just leads downhill fast.
<The most annoying part is when anyone notices I've changed my views a bit since high school, they automatically take the Rick Santorum route and say "those damn atheist professors brainwashed you."
Its not a coincidence that increased education causes kids to rethink their world views a bit.
LOL - this thread turned out strange, when it was just here as a joke.
However the serious point would be that people of all ideals can look in the bible and make claims that a work (that could well be fiction) backs up their own ideals, and how other people are in the wrong. It's all about personal interpretation, and i just wish people would realise there is no wrong on right with it.
You interpret a work. How do I relate to this passage? What does this symbolize? Knowing what I do about the author, I would think that this reflects influences of his childhood. Yada Yada.
You don't interpret a theory. You look at the evidence, and you either agree with it or you don't.
I think its b/c you say it everyday or a few times a day lol
always some anti christian semi rant
You are never rude or disrespectful, I dont mean that
you just come across like you have a real hang up and I think the logic is a little weak we all know 95% of people are complete tools, it just happens most have been christian here for many many years. If they had all been Hindus, <Jews, Buddhists or atheist nothing would have been any different 'good' or 'bad' in the past...or now. singling out the religion seems as irrelevant as the particular fashion of the time it just seems like the Us vs them game
the word <Jew is banned here? I hope the people arent lol
frida i know there's something going on...
keep getting that song in my head
email through the board? I have no idea what the means or how one would go about such a thing just come here its easier
no I told her who was in the picture its Milla Viasotti
but if your suggesting she shouldnt be hanging out with, emailing me then you are probably right I do lack moral fibre and most social niceties unsavory character....that sums it up better

i really didnt know there was an email function ...still for the life of me cant find it
so yes, Im very nice but not all that smart lol
