    He probably thinks that is a bad thing.

    Hah, I was about to write ‘And he says this as if it is a bad thing’ 😀

    Turns out young Irish people don’t like unwanted sexual advances in the name of God?

    Religion is losing power and reaping what they sow – you spread self-hatred and guilt and shame, you’ll push people away.

    Texas is still full of religious idiots. Pious Texas Cheerleaders – wanting to proudly claim god for their side of a highschool football game. Alienating god to the other side who most likely are christians of the same flavor… and now we have a national news story…because the judge sees it as their right to free speech… As long as they have the word “leader” in their title – at a school sponsored event representing the school as leaders – they can’t have their cake and eat it too or can they?

    kittie….. 2nd message…..

    anyway, what i started to say was these people are EVERYWHERE ,

    and they come in various flavors ….. which really all boils down to the

    same baloney beliefs in supernatural beings who have laid down

    rules, or laws, or whatever, for humans to follow in conducting

    their lives .

    as sinjin likes to point out, if you hook into this stuff , you never have

    to do any critical thinking….or questioning……….the church will give

    you all the answers.

    and that’s what YOU’RE up against…..because YOU think .

    but dont let it get to you. your mind is a gift. it’s the thinkers

    that move the world……………..knowledge and change are the

    enemies of religion.

    there are certainly mysteries in life, and in the astounding universe,

    and there is a spiritual part of ALL LIFE…………but the answers

    are not ” gods.”

    here’s one for you to ponder…..look up ”Water Bears ” on youtube,

    and the internet…and ask yourself if these are ”creatures of god”

    and if NOT… then WHY are they here ??
