    Unintentionally ironic comment from ‘Father’ Morris?

  2. Scarlett Says:

    If you are over the age of 5.

    I am not opposed to ironic imaginary friends – like the mouse I claim to have in my pocket when I say “we” even though I really mean “I”.

    Hmmn, a pot calling a kettle black. As an observation, it seems to me that from where these qualifiers come seems to matter very little, they all point in the direction that belief in supernatural beings is a mental mallady.

    From the conversation the other day about pedophilia and priests, to the conversation about indoctriniating children into a delusioinal state, it all seems to point to induced psychopathy.

    Being god-like, being feared as god is feared, particularly by young children, is what being priest is all about. Holding dominion over the weakest among us is the psychopathy, the church is the false front for the psycholpathic pedophile priests.

    The priest imagines love in the fearful submission of the child.

    There is no place for any religion on this Earth.

    I am both inspired by the life of, and saddened today by the death of Christopher Hitchens. A great mind, an honest person, and a man who brought enlightenment to many.

  6. The Heretic Says:

    It is a dark day indeed. He will be missed.

  7. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    I just bought a copy of “Arguably” as a Christmas gift for a friend. Seemed very fitting.

    I hope you all won’t think this is in poor taste but for me it somehow really captures it.

    Rest in peace, Chris. Men like you don’t come around often enough.

  9. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    I don’t think the dead care

    Hitch’s death puts me in mind of a story I heard about W. C. Fields – an atheist of note from earlier times:

    Fields was in a nursing home during his last days, and was visited by a friend, who, when walking in saw the great gentleman leafing through a copy of the Bible. Startled, his friend exclaimed, “Bill, what in the heck are you doing?”

    The reply stands as a classic for all non-believers, delivered, as it was, in Fields inimitable accent, “Looking for loopholes.”

    While the dead don’t care, Sinjin, for all the shit he took in his lifetime, peace is the least we can wish him.

    oh, pooh.

    i got lotsa stuff wrong with me………..but as soon

    ………………………………………………………………..

    good-bye to Hitchens…….a fine, bright, thoughtful man.

  12. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    Agree Jeff, I was speaking of the poor taste of Cap’s comment.

    Even so, any wish of peace for him is for us, not Hitch. He will never know.

  13. John Says:

    He may never know nor care about poor taste any longer however, he most likely knew in his mind that the enlightenment will continue on without his masterful touch, just with a bit less finesse for now. He will be remembered as one of the greats: Einstein, Lincoln, Sagan and so on…
