That photo of Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker reminds me of one of the funniest things I saw .....years ago, in the Sunday newspaper comic strip, Bloom County.

I just fell over laughing at that. I donno, it's just funny. Laugh out load

You might have to enlarge it to read it.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: So I went to church today...
I know exactly how you feel. I am recently deconverted but still in the closet in order to keep my family together. We just moved to the buckle of the bible belt from California and our neighbor across the street invited us to church. Our daughter is friends with hers so my wife naturally accepted. The pastor is one of those disgustingly over-perky young fellows that you just want to punch in the pie hole. He must of brought up the issue of tithing at least three times and it wasn't even the sermon topic. I literally fell asleep during his message and started snoring, my neighbor had to nudge me to wake up. Lol

"Anyways, at some point during the sermon, they played a testimonial video of one of the church members about he she learned how to give up control of her life to God."

This about sums it up perfectly.

Very interesting thread. Because I have never been religious I often find these threads fascinating. I appreciate all the answers.

ironic thing is that they're probably "pro-life" as well.

RE: So I went to church today...
The miscarriage story sounds like a friend of my wife's. Her and her husband actually carried their son to term but he died shortly after birth. It really, really screwed her up. I think it sort of makes my wife uncomfortable when, in casual conversation with a new person, she will say that she has 2 kids and that one is with god (considering most people wait to get to know someone before laying that on them). The positive side of this is that they started a nonprofit that pays for funerals for children who die and the parents can't/won't pay for it which minus the proselytizing part, is a quite honorable thing to do (some fetuses are from DNC's and whatnot). The part that bothers me is that from what my wife says, they think that god wanted them to make a foundation as a ministry. Fair enough, but did he really have to torment them like this? Other people got dreams, visions, toast, or whatnot but apparently, god loves them so much that killing their child hours after it was born was the best way to inspire them to form a ministry. I guess you can justify anything by faith but what a dick if it is true.

Ok, cool, got it. God's plan for my life is for me to take a purely empirical approach to my beliefs.
After all, how could God get mad at me for being honest with myself? That's like the best thing I could possibly be, right?
Thanks, God, for making me an atheist, that I may better understand Thy nefarious ways through thoughtful, introspective study of Thy word Cool

Very cleverBowing
