    That's retarded. He would have been about 12 when the Germans invaded Poland. It's not as if he was gassing people himself; he was merely doing what every boy his age was REQUIRED to do.

    Then I'd try to set special sarcasm tags next time, because there actually are people who think that way. Intolerance, ignorance and stupidity were utilized by Hitler in a very efficient way, but these traits existed before and still exist. And being a son or grandson of a victim doesn't make one immune to these traits as some seem to think.

    I didn't know fark, but after this little pearl of totally out of context information, I guess I will never want to know more.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    It's generally a pretty worthless site. You're not missing much.

    Nope, I've got plenty of other sites to waste time with than Fark.

    I wasn't really fair; their links are generally ok, but the forums are a cesspool of retardedness.

    I like their photoshops, they create most of the cool cliche images we laugh at on the internet.

    Fraid not.

    edit: Cliche's aren't funny (that's why they're cliche) and I'd be hard pressed to find one image that is funny that you can definitely say is tracable to Fark.

    1. Although my denomination has held view #1 in the past, they are moving away from this. Personally I find this debate is more of a man vs. woman issue than a theological one. I find little support from a theological standpoint to keep women out of ministry. One cannot interpret the Bible w/o some type of subjective viewpoint. It would be nice if we could interpret it 100% objectively, but then I cannot even write this post and guarantee that everyone will interpret it 100% objectively. It's impossible. So I feel that this debate stems from culture more than it does theology. Yes there are evidences for women ministers in Acts and some other New Testament books. But one could also argue that Paul seems to point to men as being the leaders - but to interpret what Paul is saying does require a bit of study to understand his style and where he is coming from. I think it's sad for one to say that God cannot use a woman instead of a man. That is simply not true.
    Bubba, I don't think anyone has a problem with a woman says or creates the sermon. The problem occurs when a woman attempts to perform the sacraments.

    2. Music in and of itself is not an evil thing. No one style of music is better than another and it is the message behind the music that is what is important. Calling one genre the vehicle of anti-religion is ludicrous at best and far too radical for me to abide by. There are plenty of different styles of Christian music, be it rock, classical, etc, etc. You cannot say that one style or genre of music is any worse than another. I'd hoped we were past this point in our theological stances.
    Agree with you here.

    3. Although communion should not be taken unless one does is in fact a believer in right standing with God, it's not a good practice to refuse communion to any one group of people. When you start saying this sin is greater than that sin, you yourself are making the judgement call and not Scripture.
    People are supposed to look at their hearts and determine whether they've committed any grave sins.
    Theologically there is no basis for any one man pointing out that this or that sin is greater than another
    Yes, there is. Some actions are more dangerous than others. What there's no basis for is pointing out whether a specific person's sins are more sinful than another's.

    and there is no precedent for any pastor, pope, leader, etc, refusing communion to any one person or group.
    Scandal can be a reason. If a man comes to commuion chewing food, the priest may refuse him communion because to do so would be to participate in breaking the required fast(depends on the church/rite). It's not a judgement on whether this man has gone to communion with an impure state, but whether the priest participates. You shouldn't knowingly partipate in someone's man sins. For instance, if someone comes to my store to buy rat poison, I may sell it to him, knowing there's a rare chance he might attempt to poison himself. But, if someone comes to my store, and leads me to believing he's suicidal, then I really shouldn't sell the rat poison to him.
