I took a screenshot. I'll see if this works....

Perhaps they are actually coming out and trying to be discrete about it?

I used to annoy one particular friend of mine, on Facebook, whenever she posted scripture from the bible I'd add my favorite one:

Quote:Ezekiel 23:16-21,
16 As soon as she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea. 17 Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust. 18 When she carried on her prostitution openly and exposed her naked body, I turned away from her in disgust, just as I had turned away from her sister. 19 Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. 21 So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.[c]

She'd always get mad delete it, and complain that she has family on Facebook that could see it. I'd just say, as though I didn't get the problem, "but it's the holy word of "God", you're saying you and your family have a problem with the holy word of "God"?"

Of course, she was my friend so I felt free to mess with her. I wouldn't post that on just anyone's wall, because it is quite lewd.

A different friend, quite recently, posted this long letter someone else wrote about how Christian's were being victimized because they are not allowed to pray in public places (which is not true). The whole piece made it sound like their rights to pray were under attack. It used an example of not being allowed to pray at the start of a high school football game and how that was an attack on Christians rights. Which first of all, everyone still has the right to pray if they want, it just can't be conducted by a school official or coach, or forced on students. But student's are free to pray on their own if they want.

Second of all, this is bullshit anyway because I played football through high school and college, and I know "The Lord's Prayer" by heart to this day solely because of it. I didn't go to church as a kid, so this is the only exposure I got to that prayer. I never recited it myself, but heard it so much I have it memorized nontheless. There is no attack on prayer, prayer is going strong.

Myself, as an atheist, I could just ignore it and not give a shit, though now that I'm older I think I shouldn't have had do ignore it. I always felt like it singled me out if anyone looked up and saw I wasn't saying it or bowing my head. And I think about my one Hindu teammate who literally had to leave the room to not participate. He shouldn't have had to do that.

But I responded to her with this...
Quote:Matthew 5:6-7
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.

That PISSED her off. She was sooo mad I did that and felt like I was attacking her personally, and went on and on about how hurt she felt that I posted that.

I was surprised, (literally as I didn't expect that strong a reaction) and was confused and pointed out that I wasn't saying those things, Jesus did. That's what Jesus said, not me. If it pisses you off take it up with Jesus, not me because he's the one who said it. I think that's why it pissed her off, because I exposed what she was doing in a way that she couldn't really argue, otherwise she'd be arguing with Jesus.

However, come to think of it, that did happen about three months ago, and she used to post prayers and prayer request all the time, and I don't see them at all anymore. She still post spritual and biblical stuff, but no more prayers. Hmmm...did I actually change her behavior...I never realized that before until just now...

Those are my go-to quotes! Porn in the Bible and Jesus telling you to STFU and pray by yourself.

I don't have a facebook account!



I don't want one either. My husband spends two to three hours on facebook while I go out to the gym or do something in the three dimensional world.
