A disgusting example of lying for Jesus
http://www.kendallharmon.net/t19/index.p...cle/41503/

Made me so angry that I actually took the time to register so that I could post a comment.

Also makes me happy in a way, since I've personally witnessed folks transition away from religious faith based on this type of blatant dishonesty and misinformation.

I can't tell which comment is yours... is it the second one?

I'm assuming that you're kidding.

It's the third one.

RE: A disgusting example of lying for Jesus
That's my favorite. I laughed out loud when I read your reply.

You are an intelligent person because you assumed I was joking (correct) but you also realize that people are primarily stupid (also correct), so to be safe you also posted which one it was. You're my new favorite.

RE: A disgusting example of lying for Jesus
I love that the article says we do not know why we grieve. lol. If this is just a waiting place, why do christians grieve? They should be excited and jump in front of a bus. Not saying I wish that, saying that should be something they want. But they don't. So why do THEY grieve? Could it be an evolutionary process of caring deeply for those they are socially connected to? No, that's much too complex Confused

I also signed up. If he registers me, I will make a respectful note of sympathy, and also mention, that his attempt to use a tragic situation to bash is more than obvious. The real question someone there is asking in that situation, as he well knows, (or is too dumb to recognize), is how a loving, all-powerful deity, could allow a tragedy to happen, along with all the attendant pain. I am a little surprised .. usually that sect is not quite THAT bad. Rural Georgia ? Maybe I should apply for a scholarship to his school, and give em a run for their money. How long would I last ? 2, maybe 3 minutes ? Every day I last on my Christian site as a mole, I am shocked .. expect every day to see a "now -----, you have to understand that you have good questions, but you also have to understand that not everyone .... bla bla bla .... and that you might be a scandal, and not understanding your questions, might be a source of sin, and doubt...bla bla bla... ".

Great point! You should totally go to the article and post that point of view.

Really good point as well and I'm glad that you signed up. People need to hear this stuff.

That's funny. By the way, the reason I pointed out that I was the third one is because I got to wondering if perhaps it had indeed been moderated but in stealth mode (e.g. I see it as if it's live but nobody else can).

How's that for clever? Thumbsup

RE: A disgusting example of lying for Jesus
My experience is the opposite. When I've seen death it's been the one moment where the comfortable facade is broken and the words about God and a better place and all the stuff that's meant to say "stop, just stop thinking about it because I'm scared" just sound empty and meaningless and even the really holy people can't quite pretend perfectly...
