I don't get it. Why would that be a dig at Christians?

They are all considered sins. (For believers)

Because it's on the list of bizarre Old Testament (yes I know you hate that term; I'm speaking from their perspective) Levitical prohibitions from which they choose to cherry-pick. Not bizarre for observant Jews, of course... but since Christians claim to have tossed most of the Levitical laws with the coming of Jayzus, it's silly to outsiders that they get REALLY bent out of shape over that one.

Yeah, I thought Christians make no effort what-so-ever to follow Jewish law. I thought it just wasn't a part of their religion at all.

I'd rather they didn't exist at all. I'd rather they didn't try to profit off the idea of any kind of love. Frankly, they can fuck off for trying to convince me to waste my money on their worthless bullshit to supposedly prove I care about someone.

People have been decorating themselves with jewelry for various reasons from, love and status and even for war. They've been doing this for at least 20 thousand years and probably longer. Here's some gold jewelry from about 6 or 7 thousand years ago from the Varna Civilization in Bulgaria.

I don't think it's ever going to end because baubles, bangles beads are fun to wear and people will make a profit from it like they do other unnecessary things humans buy.

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.

For some reason I don't see Pat Robertson spurring Evangelicals to do so, given his whole blood diamond operation under the cover of missionary relief work and all...


Need to think of a witty signature.

Holy shit, dude.

And that dude thinks *I'm* going to Hell?

I bet that stuff fit better back in the day. Seems a little loose now.
