Gosh, and I thought it was bad when my slave obstentatiously wore a wool and polyester blend. What was HE thinking? Boy, did I ever beat him for three days straight. I used barb-wire wrapped around a stick, ha ha ha. He was a bloody mass of pulp. But don’t you worry now, I was real careful, he didn’t die from my beatings, I paid good attention to God’s loving pronouncement:
quote:Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. Exodus 21:20-21
Not sure why god gave us brains, but I sure am glad that god bothered to tell us how to think about all the REAL important stuff in life, . . . textile blends, . . . seafood discrimination, . . . beating-of-slave guidelines.
I shudder to think, If god was a retarded jackass, he might’ve filled up the bible with a lot of petty and horrific crap.
I mean, goddamn, most of god's messages are sure important all right, but sweet-baby-jesus, who's got the time or energy or devotion to follow EVERY-god-damn thing he says. Holy lord Faith, . . . ever read the psalms, they are SOOO depressing.
Or how about those god-damn ten commandments. TEN!??? Holy Mary, Joseph, and god, . . . who does god think I am, . . . an accountant?! God in heaven, . . . I'm just not up on the subject of ALL of those. I say the first three commandments (particularly the third one) are more than god-damn enough for a true christian to follow.
Let's stick together Faith, you and me are exactly alike.
I am constantly amazed with the anti-gayrighters obsession with gay sex. It is almost pathological.
Do you agree with Theo, that with all the REAL dangers and concerns in the world, that you are dissproportionately concerned with gay sex?

Although I am probably 100% wrong, I sometimes wonder if you are, like the bible's Paul, a self-hating homosexual. I would be sad if that is the case and you torture yourself so needlessly. Life is short, see a good therapist, throw off the bonds of religion, and love life.
Just my opinion, and I apologize a millions times if I am wrong, but on the odd chance I am even partly right, I really would want you to be happy in life. Life is tough enough, why make it worse with religion?
