woohoo, another religious thread. Oh joy. :rolleyes: The webmaster should add a button to the bottom of each thread which automatically brands it with a scarlet R :)
*sigh* The thing that bothers me most is that the religous community on this board is represented time and time again by total religous morons...the type of people get brainwashed and only spout what's been regurgitated in their brains. My favorite example was "NOT_BLINDED"...don't remember if it was old board or new board, but that guy was hilarious :)
I don't know about everyone else, but I constantly challenge almost every facet of my religion..I may say I'm catholic, but to me it means nothing more to me than the fact that I go to a catholic church to worship.
>>But, uh, religion does advocate ignorance...
True enough, but in nowhere near all cases.
>>Heck, even in my own home town it happens. Its everywhere.
3 time here...my brother got confirmed by one, I got confirmed by the other, along with my brother (the infamous Bishop O'Connel, no less - the one who basically exploded this onto the scene), and a rabbi from the place right across from my church.....yeesh. My parents seem to have formulated that the catholic hierarchy is all gay, so they hush all this up. A lot of what they're saying makes sense...the fact that priests can't marry just sort've promotes homosexual priests...
