    This made me laugh. Thought I would share.


    Apparently an organizer for a group of which I am a member has become an enemy of the church. By extension I guess all members are too. I suppose I can look forward to catholic ninjas coming for me in the night. What nonsense. :rofl:

    If the Roman Catholics condemn it you are doing something right. It is no different than making an enemy of the NAZIs in practice, as the Catholic Church is the moral inferior of even those scum.

    That's the funny thing. This group is completely low key. We recently went and volunteered at the soup kitchen to show locals that Atheists aren't monsters. We're going to an open work day this weekend for a local Habitat for Humanity to help build a house.

    We have shirts that say things like "I'm An Atheist." on the front with "I'm Here To Help." on the back.

    Jimmy Carter said a couple years ago that when he works with Habitat for Humanity the atheist humanists are the main workers and he's grateful for them.

    We mostly meet nice people. We've had our share of unhappy ones though. We had a girl get soup thrown on her at the soup kitchen. And often some people will just pack up a leave.

    I'm sure they are "Christians" who abide not by the teachings of their sage.

    When you are attacked like that for helping people you should consider them your spiritual teachers. For by their example others will see their unprofitableness and the bad fruits they bear and turn away form organized religion, even if just their cult's brand of it.

    That's the plan. We're enemies of the church.

    You committed the unpardonable sin of putting the lie to the claim that atheists have no moral compass by doing good deeds... IN PUBLIC where people might see you.

    your link goes to http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/

    Which is NOT a Vatican site. Is this slight of hand intentional?

    Got no idea really. I didn't do any digging. I assume it's some small time hate group trying to use the church to bolster their garbage. No one is taking it seriously. I just thought it was funny.

    Now... If we did actually get hate mail from the Vatican.... That'd make me feel important.

    Just the fact that the RCC doesn't sell off its' priceless works of art in order to help poor people tells me all I need to know.

    Catholicism aside, doesn't the mere existence of churches fly in the face of the intent of Christianity?

    Shouldn't all these people just be meeting in a tent in a field somewhere?

    Oh, no. Let's build elaborate, ornate structures that can't be taxed.

    Take the money that it cost to build the church in the first place, then give that money to people who need it.

    Wanna do a good deed? Pray at home.

    Wow, Ronny, you cease to amaze me.
    Now you've offended me on a political AND religious level. I'd continue, but it ain't worth my time. That, and I'd get an infraction.

    He's not wrong. I recall the Catholic Church being somewhat friendly with Mr. Hitler.

    Does make you wonder doesn't it? What would Christ have thought about these $100,000... $300,000... or even Million Dollar churches? Forget the super crazy mega churches. We've got at least 5 Churches of God in my town alone that have $50,000 sound systems in them. I wonder what he would have thought of all the excess and his flock thinking they needed to waste resources on such trivial things. I agree... I think he would have approved far more of a congregation gathering in a field on picnic blankets that used every available resource to help the less fortunate over these super elaborate churches that seem to only serve to boost the egos of their members.

    “Hitler fought for Christianity in Europe”


    The Catholic Church began the practice of forcing Jews to wear yellow stars to identify themselves. It was a Catholic policy in 11th century Europe by papal order. There is a long long history of Catholic committing all manner of horrible genocides, inquisitions, and warfare which is both evil and contrary to Jesus' teachings. And lets not forget that the the latest European genocide began in Spain where people were shot down in mass for the high crime of not being Catholic, before that Catholic inquisition spread to Germany where the NAZI government implemented the Catholic policies, with direct assistance of the Jesuit murderers. After WW2 the Vatican also gave material assistance to NAZIs fleeing justice in their rat line. The Catholics are the moral inferior of NAZIism and I will always remind people that it is well documented that the Catholic church murdered more man, women, and children than any other government or religion over their 1400 year reign of terror and that to this day they will still encourage the slaughter of men if it furthers the expansion of their religion.

    The point is that my statement is true. If the truth offends you its because you live in denial of historical facts.

    Amen. Church is a state of mind and heart. Not a building. I don't pray on my knees either. I've had "religious" and "spiritual" experiences at rock concerts but never in a house of worship.

    "You're in church mother*********s" - Marilyn Manson

    "In my darkest moments fetal and weeping
    The moon tells me a secret, my confidant
    As full and bright as I am
    This light is not my own
    A million lights reflections pass over me
    Its source is bright and endless
    She resuscitates the hopeless
    Without her, we are lifeless satellites drifting" - TOOL
