    No one paid to hear that. No one paid for proselytizing. Christians are the ones forcing their lifestyle on everyone else.

      Yes you did. It's the payment you make for being in the company of other human beings. It's the same payment I made as I was forced to listen to the entire Kenny G catalog while strapped to my dentist's chair yesterday morning, or the ten minutes I stood in line at the grocery store last night behind a woman who purchased $147 in groceries by paying $26 cash and $121 in coupons (I am not kidding) that she removed one by one from her purse.
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          Easily dealt with. Just say "Wow, I would **** her / him / it!" for each. Never takes more than three. One if it's a baby.

                A dying culture of Bible thumping, Easy Mac with boiled hot dogs, and underseasoned potato salad letting out its last primal, guttural scream. If we could just hang on another 10-20 years as they continue to drive away more and more youth with their reactionary bile, we'd be rid of them as a serious threat to America. Unfortunately, it's looking like a longshot.

                      • Today in history, roughly 325 AD: the Nicene Creed was finalized.

                        Was later I learned the Council of Nicene had nothing to do with church and everything to do with politics.

                          Council of Nicaea. They essentially voted on the nature of god.

                          My breakfast group calls itself the Council of Nicetaseeya. We'd vote on the issue too, but none of us buys god.


                          To your point, though, MT, I'd say it had everything to do with church, because church is politics.

                          • My friend Amber and I realized the same thing about our church:

                            Just another social club and if you don't have as much money as they do, they say you're welcome, but not really. After I quit drinking, most of them stopped talking to me.

                              I saw a sign outside a church near me last weekend: "All are welcome here. Really. (No, Really!)"

                              How sad is it that an organization who's motto is "love one another" would need such a sign?
                              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?
