Just curious, state why if you say yes (e.g. parents make me or I want to)

Nope, I dont. My parents want us to make our own decisions so they don't take us to church.

I reckon the Bible is incredibly racist and sexist!

I do visit the house of God (well a god)regularly, but then everyone likes to go home and relax!! Laughing

Other than that I only visit places of worship for their asthetic qualities.

As for the bible, it's a very interesting read (if very sexist.) For example did you know that the sons of Adam practiced incest with their mother (Eve) - there were no other women about, yet they begat children of their own! Or if you read it carefully that Jesus was a very powerfull vampire?

I'll have to go look it up but I think I read in Genesis that at least one of the two sons of Adam went to some other land (it is named but I forgot) and took a wife. I don't think anybody who has studied Judaeo-Christian *stuff* (history, theology and other topics) has ever tried to claim that all humanity has Adam and Eve for it's Great, Great,>>>>>>>>Grandma and Grandpa.
Where I think the Alabama family tree - a trunk with no branches - comes from is found in the story of Noah. Noah and the Mrs. and their three sons and daughters-in-law. That's who got off the boat and every one else is suppose to be dead. Shocked
I've never heard of Jesus as a Vampire. Vamps and wolves are my pets. Can you point me to a starting point on that one?

G-man

Hope it isn't uncouth to answer my own posts but I fired up the old disabled PC and dug out an email address from a friend of mine who is a Vampire. She surprised me when I asked her about Jesus. Not only was he not a Vampire but it really pisses Vampires off when people try to claim he was/is. She was around when Jesus walked the earth and said he was the last person anyone would make into a Vampire. I felt really dumb when she pointed out that Jesus could go out in the daytime Embarassed
Just a word to the wise. Be careful what you say about Vampires and especially where Jesus' name comes up. They Google just like everybody else and when they find discussions about them with or without Jesus they read the posts. If people get too flip about it they infiltrate if you will, find out what they need to know and the smartass gets a visit. Next time you hear the wind blow the leaves it might not be all leaves you hear.

G-man

Personally I think that the Bible is just complete bollocks, in my opinion it was probab;y written by a crazy man with long hair sitting in a cave.

It is complete bullshit, even if the bible is true i've god no chance of getting into heaven anyway, being gay i am condemed to hell.

yeah thats so stupid i mean what? did some homophobe wanna scare every1 into being straight so he jus chucked that in there whilest writing the bible pssh that is pretty stupid i mean religion is all about choice and if some1 chooses to be gay like our friend greg here.. then i mean why does god give a shit about sexual preferences.. i mean c'mon WTF?? .. if you think about it god is more or less a hitler.. wait.. hear me out.. god only lets people who he sees as perfect into heaven he wants a eutopia he wants the perfection out of the human race, he wants people who he may think is superior.. like hitler for example he didnt want any jews or gays or gypsies.. anyone he didnt want was killed and every1 god doesnt want is condemmed to hell..

well those are my thoughts for the day..
