Go to: Atheist clubs are springing up in American high schools, warns head of US Catholic bishops

NJS's Avatar Jump to comment 83 by NJS

I love the idea olf kids refusing to be confirmed.

One of the great lies of catholicism is the idea that confirmation allows someone to repeat the vows of baptism when they are old enough to understand them and as a matter of choice. I was confirmed when I was eight and there was no choice whatsoever.

The cardinal sees his revenue stream being threatened and is worried - fantastic.

Go to: Attenborough reveals creationist hate mail for not crediting God

I've read a response to his parasite example as he's used it before which stated that the parasites were created by God after the fall - so that's alright then. Doesn't negate the loving creator thing but does shift the blame to Eve.

Go to: Heaven for the Godless?

NJS's Avatar Jump to comment 52 by NJS

On one hand this isn't a surprise - most "normal" people even if religious are willing to accept that "being good" should be enough.

On the other hand the next question I'd ask is that if you do put being good as the main aim, what do you think having faith gives you? More forgiveness for minor indiscretion? Access to some kind of quota system? Better accommodation in heaven?

So she's in a regular relationship with a man - what could be "immoral"?

They had vaginal sex - and so fucking what.

They had oral sex - and so fucking what.

Maybe they had anal sex - and so fucking what.

etc. etc.

Anyone harmed? - no - fuck off.

(Apologies for the language)
