These ads show that atheists can be just as shiny, happy and annoying as their fundamentalist brethren.

Baking cookies?  Really?

Well of course she looks evil. She's an atheist. Evil is what we do. In addition to cookies.

Matty,

I hope everything is going well for you. You are right,  I am not much of a cookie eater, I will let you have mine. However, I am still very involved in the Eucharist and rejoice in the Lord and have continued to pray for the members on this site.

I do agree that is not a very good picture of the HOLY FATHER. I wish you would have found a better one. He is a wonderful man filled with wisdom. Many can not understand this wisdom because their selfishness and lack of dignity for life prohibits understanding TRUTHS.

Time is short, I pray for you and wish you well. May the Lord Jesus Christ grant you peace.

Well everything is going pretty much as expected. Your blood thirsty psychopath of a god hasn't killed me yet, but we live in hope. I note, however, that he is killing off the good Catholic folk of Haiti at an impressive clip. It seems an earthquake wasn't enough and he's decided that a stout dose of cholera should do the trick.

He really does move a devout bowel in mysterious ways, doesn't he?

I don't really care for cookies unless they are made with good Moroccan hash. None of that Turkish shit for Matty, thank you very much!

I'm glad to hear that you still partake of the Holy Sacrament. Personally I could never see the attraction, the wretched thing kept sticking to the roof of my hell bound mouth. Do you take the Eucharist in both species?

I am disappointed to hear that you are praying for members of this site. It seems that intercessionary prayer is deleterious to one's health.

I know. I tried to find a picture of the Ratz in his Hitler Youth uniform but to no avail. He may well be a wonderful man filled with wisdom but I do rather wish he had given more consideration to the young boys who were filled with his priests' semen.

I suspect his current row would be much easier to hoe had he done so. But such is life.

Well thank you. Time maybe be short but I'm sure it's wide like Danny DeVito. If it's all the same to you I would prefer it if the Lord Jesus Christ would grant me a Fleshlight.

Can you mention this to St Mary McKillop? I hear she's good for this sort of thing. :)

Matty,

You are something else. I figured you were a fallen Catholic. I will continue to pray for you and all of the forum members. I understand life can be confusing and take ones hope from them. I like Christ will continue to carry my cross. My faith is based not on a man, but JESUS CHRIST. I celebrate and find strength from the Sacraments.

You mentioned all of the terrible things that happen around the world. That is just apart of life and the stain from original sin. God intended that we live in paradise, but we screwed that one up.

Matty, death is not a bad thing we will all experience it very soon. Our illness will be cured upon our deaths. Our opinions will be subjected to judgement. I am sure when that time comes you will give glory to our saviour Jesus Christ, but for now being mad is OK. Christ loves you so much that you will be revealed the TRUTH and be given a chance to proclaim Him as God. As I would hope you would.

God Bless you Matty "the saved" and my our Lord grant you peace.


P.S You should have taken more wine so the host didn't stick to the roof of your mouth...lol

I wonder if people with chronic health challenges think about the glory of the cure upon death.

I really thought for a moment about Mystery's point of view and the place of HIV in that.

I had a fleeting thought that I am cured by HAART. We will see what the future holds as to the long term effect of medicine, starting 2008, and long-term undetectable viral infection.  We will see. But I don't feel any shame or sin about HIV and I don't feel the sickness - maybe some time in the future I will have to cross that path of some HIV caused illness.  I feel its a social, pyschological, financial, and human rights burden.  
It never crossed my mind that my "salvation" from HIV will come at death via God.  And yet, I know my friend Eric who suffered so horribly with AIDs sought escape and salvation through death.  Times have changed indeed.

On a tangent, this was in the news today:

Survey: Greensboro second holiest city in U.S.

http://www.news-record.com/content/2010/11/11/article/survey_greensboro_second_holiest_city_in_us

Greensboro is the second holiest city in the United States, according to a list compiled by Menís Health.

To determine the rankings, Menís Health looked at the number of places of worship per capita, the count of religious organizations and the amount of volunteers who support these groups, the amount of money donated to religious affiliations and money spent on religious books.

Colorado Springs was the only city to top Greensboro on the list of 100 cities. Charlotte is ninth, Raleigh 13th and Durham 14th.


I'm not surprised by this at all. People seem to be quite religious here. For example, a couple of weeks ago I was in a staff meeting and we were discussing that one of our psychiatrist was let go. Her medical license was suspended due to improper documentation when prescribing controlled substances. One of my coworkers said "I see the hand of God in this. Dr._____ was working too hard so God let this happen so she would slow down and rest. It's the way of the Lord. If you don't take care of yourself God will take care of it for you. Can I get an amen." Several people said amen and there was a brief pause. Then another of my coworkers, who is a pastoral counselor, said "I had no idea God was on the DEA board."

I totally cracked up.

Apparently I won't be running for public office anytime soon, not that anyone here would vote for a liberal, humanist/atheist, poodle-loving homosexual with AIDS. North Carolina's constitution prohibits anyone from serving "who shall deny the being of Almighty God." Six other states, Arkansas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, have similar provisions barring atheist officeholders.

Lawsuit Threatened if Atheist North Carolina Councilman Gets Sworn In

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/12/11/lawsuit-threatened-atheist-north-carolina-councilman-gets-sworn/

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Asheville City Councilman Cecil Bothwell believes in ending the death penalty, conserving water and reforming government -- but he doesn't believe in God. His political opponents say that's a sin that makes him unworthy of serving in office, and they've got the North Carolina Constitution on their side.

Bothwell's detractors are threatening to take the city to court for swearing him in, even though the state's antiquated requirement that officeholders believe in God is unenforceable because it violates the U.S. Consititution...

Matty,

You are something else. I figured you were a fallen Catholic. I will continue to pray for you and all of the forum members. I understand life can be confusing and take ones hope from them. I like Christ will continue to carry my cross. My faith is based not on a man, but JESUS CHRIST. I celebrate and find strength from the Sacraments.

In fact I am an excommunicant. In the mid 1990s the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (which you might know as the Inquisition) declared me to be an apostate and a heretic. I was subsequently excommunicated by the bishop of the Diocese where I live.

Didn't find out about it for years. "Apostate" is such a fancy word for "came to his senses", don't you think?

Quote
You mentioned all of the terrible things that happen around the world. That is just apart of life and the stain from original sin. God intended that we live in paradise, but we screwed that one up.

Ah yes. There's that all loving god of yours at work again. Damning almost all of us to an eternity of torment because a talking snake convinced a rib woman to eat the fruit of a magical tree.

Quote
Matty, death is not a bad thing we will all experience it very soon. Our illness will be cured upon our deaths. Our opinions will be subjected to judgement. I am sure when that time comes you will give glory to our saviour Jesus Christ, but for now being mad is OK. Christ loves you so much that you will be revealed the TRUTH and be given a chance to proclaim Him as God. As I would hope you would.

I dunno about giving him glory but if he looks anything like the dude on the crucifix above my Aunty Katie's bed I'll totally give him a blowjob. Do you think that will do?

Quote
God Bless you Matty "the saved" and my our Lord grant you peace.

Again with the peace. Seriously I want that Fleshlight. If Jesus sends me a Fleshlight I will totally repent.

P.S You should have taken more wine so the host didn't stick to the roof of your mouth...lol

I knew better than to accept alcohol from a priest. Something of a shame you didn't eh? :)

Matty,

Never give up on God because of an institution. Just because you were excommunicated.. :D....Does not mean God does not care for you.....Dude, I can't help it, I am laughing right now....no disrespect, but what the HELL did you do!!!

I love your sarcasm it makes me laugh, but in some ways I think you are covering up something that has hurt you. I am sure that you are a very intelligent and loving person that has more substance then identifying everything sexually. Parts of your post will not get a response from me, but I just wanted you to know you are loved and a very important person. Your worth is much more then a sexual offering.

Do not give up on God because of man. God is much bigger then anything that we can think of. God goes beyond Science and Religion. I am not a Christian because of man. I am a Christian because of the Sacraments Christ has left us. I am not naive enough to think the people in the Catholic Church are perfect. The Church is filled with sinners. We all fall short of God and neither you or I are perfect ourselves and have let people down. With that said, the Church also has thousands of wonderful examples of people that have lived their entire life for God. The Church has also done wonderful things for many people. The people of the Church have disappointed many, but at the same time helped people of all walks of life.

Keep an open heart Matty, anything is possible in the eyes of God. If you truly do not believe in anything other then this short existence, I pray that you will have an open heart upon your death.

Apparently I won't be running for public office anytime soon, not that anyone here would vote for a liberal, humanist/atheist, poodle-loving homosexual with AIDS. North Carolina's constitution prohibits anyone from serving "who shall deny the being of Almighty God." Six other states, Arkansas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, have similar provisions barring atheist officeholders.

Lawsuit Threatened if Atheist North Carolina Councilman Gets Sworn In

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/12/11/lawsuit-threatened-atheist-north-carolina-councilman-gets-sworn/

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Asheville City Councilman Cecil Bothwell believes in ending the death penalty, conserving water and reforming government -- but he doesn't believe in God. His political opponents say that's a sin that makes him unworthy of serving in office, and they've got the North Carolina Constitution on their side.

Bothwell's detractors are threatening to take the city to court for swearing him in, even though the state's antiquated requirement that officeholders believe in God is unenforceable because it violates the U.S. Consititution...
..


Isn't denying someone the ability to hold an elected office because of their religious affiliation (or lack thereof) unconstitutional?  That seems like it's just waiting for a judge to strike it down.

Hey now, liberal cities like Philly are excused -- we don't pretend to be Thumpers here.  Louisville is another matter.  They watch porn so that they're not tempted to ride Tedderz horse cock.

Well, my mom did spend a lot of time at Churchill Downs.  My father was Secretariat.  I admit it.  I put Louisville in 1st place.  Come on Miss P, you need to get on the balls and put Louisville to shame for Philly.  I saw that about Louisville a while back and found it hard to believe we were number one.  We need to put that in our commercials along with the KY Derby, Louisville Slugger and Bourbon.

Oh, I've read Louisville has the highest number of Catholics behind Maryland.  I found that hard to believe as well.  Maybe that explains why we're number 1 for most obscene cities.

As well you should since Maryland has a population of 5.7 million and was the most Catholic of the 13 original colonies.  Why would any news article be comparing a smallish city to an entire state?

But even comparing cities there's no way you have more than where I live -- not just the discrepancy is size but I'd not be surprised if 30-40% are Catholics here.  Very large Irish, Italian and Hispanic populations. 

But whatever, you're still going to find more Catholics per city in NYC just because of the size.  27.5% are Hispanic, then add in all of the Italians and Irish of which there are massive amounts and I'd not be surprised if it's 50% or more, and that's 4 million people.

Well, according to the Catholics, NYC is at 45% and Louisville only 17.6%

(The winner at 85%?  Brownsville Texas)

I didn't want to post in this thread because clearly, christians and those non-followers of their cult will never see eye to eye. But give me a break. I don't even want to get into this.

Don't worry petal, it wasn't the church that drove me away from your imaginary sky fairy, it's the fact that he's, well, imaginary.

Getting excommunicated is really not that hard. Just give a pointy speech to the wrong crowd.

Sarcasm is so vulgar. I am a practitioner of the finest irony. But you're right. You've revealed my secret. Underneath this harsh, prickly exterior beats a fragile heart, wounded and vulnerable crying out to be loved. Howl!  :'(

You are a christian because you are deluded, dear boy. You've simply cannot accept you are not at the centre of creation. The universe is cold, massive and uncaring. One day you will simply wink out like an expired light bulb. You won't go onto enternal glory or be cast into endless suffering.

You will simply cease to be.

I've never denied the fact that religion motivates some people to do good things. My contention is that it's the wrong reason to do good things. Why is it necessary to promise people eternal paradise simply to motivate them to share or assist the less fortunate? Shouldn't it be enough to do these things simply because it is the objectively moral thing to do?

And therein lies your problem. My morality revolves around questions of suffering and happiness. Yours is simply about not offending the monstrous make believe god you worship.

Quote
Keep an open heart Matty, anything is possible in the eyes of God. If you truly do not believe in anything other then this short existence, I pray that you will have an open heart upon your death.

It is my experience that I will most likely have an open bowel upon my death.
