RE: Scare tactics (video)
I started watching another video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sxf91avG...e=related) linked to to the one above and it has subtitiles in another language (german?) and at the 0:06 mark the subtitle reads "Maar voor God de Vader." As soon as I saw "God de Vader" I immediately thought of God as Darth Vader and I was brought to tears I was laughing so hard! It literally means "God the Father" but it is still hilarious to me.

Just thought I would share my moment of hysterical laughter with you Smile

I picture it too, and it fits so well. "Come to the dark side", and "I am your father". Someone needs to do a parody.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

That's largely because the purpose Christianity is to wrap you up in a fuzzy warm blanket of love and community. Then scare the shit out of you if you try to leave it. It's a cult thing.

For God so loved the world that he arranged for everyone to both have free will and to suffer the terrible consequences of making the wrong choice. Kind of a dick move, God.

What sucks is that scare tactics are more effective with the uninformed. People who are willing to listen to a sermon and follow it's teachings will believe these things if supported by their church. If only literacy and knowledge were as effective.
