YOU PEOPLE ARE FUCKING CRAZY! There is no other excuse for this sort of behavior, you are crazy and need some antipsychotic meds. I sat in school today and we have one of those horrible professors that makes us introduce ourselves like in the fifth grade. Well, this guy introduces himself and proceeds to talk breifly about how he has been recently saved. OH WOW NOBODY ASKED! But that's fine, he's happy about his newly found narrowed vision and he should be allowed to express it...to a fucking point. Every time he chimed into class, or partook in idle chit chat he gave Jesus fucking Christ or God or "our lord" credit for just about everything. Examples:

"By the grace of God I made it to class today" - Giving credit to God for his adequate utlization of time.

"I went to buy books and there was one left, praise Jesus." - Thanks for making sure this guy got his book on time, Jesus.

"I tell you, the power of almighty God has made me do wonderful things, like going back to college." - Hey, if I went back to college because of the power of almighty rational thought...does that make me an instrument of Satan?

The answer is yes. I am a tool of the devil himself, sent down to fall, and then to rise up under the guise of renewed faith in life...only to spread death and misery and steal from under God himself the souls of all of those who would bathe in his glory at the end of everything. I am a warrior of darkness set forth against a warrior of light and this warrior is crafty because he burns me constantly with his mention of Jesus and God in EVERY GODDAMN FUCKING SENTENCE THAT COMES OUT OF HIS KERMIT THE FROG SOUNDING FAGGOT MOUTH! JESUS CHRIST IN HEAVEN PROVE TO ME YOU EXIST AND SHUT THIS COCKSUCKER THE FUCK UP BEFORE I GO ABSOLUTELY INSANE AND HURT SNOWY DEEPLY BY TELLING HER I DON'T LIKE HER AGAIN!

He's making you look bad, God. He's making all your sheep look bad too and trust me, Skye does not need to look any worse.

It would be annoying but I also know a few people like that and I am friends with them because the childlike faith that Jesus talks about in the Bible is heartwarming. i'm a serial-killer :)

I usually like to think in those means, like praying every morning or whatever, but not out loud.

Quoted from Shady Milkman:

It'd be even funnier that he'd assume it was a good thing because God gave him cancer and no cure for a reason...no bullshit, I've seen stuff like this. My Uncle, I love him he's the best family member I have...but he's just like this and it weighs on my nerves so heavily when we talk...and when bad shit happens to me, like getting a DUI or arrested for battery what does he say to me?

"Daniel, the Lord is working in you boy!"

WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? If I believed in God I could blame him for all the bad shit that happened to me as long as I gave him props for the good? What a pathetic state to acredit all your acheivments to an invisible man you've only ever heard or read about.

Skye, stop being stupid and join the dark side no pun intended what with you being black and all.

Just because you're a Christian doesn't make you annoying as shit. However these guys deserve to be chained together and thrown off a bridge.

What really bothers me is when they try to damn you to hell for some ridiculous bullshit.
Quoted from from some dumb ass:
Alcohol is the drink of the devil. Each drink you consume brings you further down the devils path towards a eternal damnation.


I don't care who you are, but just because you pray 25 times a day, it doesn't give you the right to damn people to hell.

Nothing wrong with being religious, but people who priase Jesus or what have you in every single sentence become annoying because you feel as if they're trying to make you feel guilty for no longer going to church and push being religious on you.

Actually, the way religion is handled in the media is pretty stupid. There's probably actually more proof that UFOs exist than proof that a god exists, yet people who believe in UFOs are "enthusiasts" while people who are religious are taken seriously.

That's a good point.

How come people who claim that aliens from other planets have visited earth are viewed as maniacs, but people who dedicate their lives to serving an obscure omnipotent being that can't be seen or touched but created everything in some strange way that we can't know about, because an ancient story book says that it's true, are considered completely normal?

I mean, UFO sightings are usually dismissed as part of some mass psychosis, and everyone thinks that the people who have them are these poor misguided freaks with overactive imaginations.

While the only proof most religious people can offer to back up their faith is that they've "felt the lords presence", and they can FEEL that he's guiding them through life, but when someone says something like that, it's perfectly accepted.
It's even CELEBRATED a lot of the time.

I know, and this thread is proof that people don't think religious fanatics are freaks!

Let me bring up a point that may clear this up a little.

The religious person who claims that they feel the presence of God in their life is the equivalent to the person who has seen UFOs on a regular basis and mentions to people that they exist. We get the same kind of fuzzy looks from people, but as long as we're not raping farm animals no one gets threatened by it.

The religious person who runs around singing "praise jay-zus" or its equivalent in a different religion is like the UFO person who claims to have been abducted and predicts a holocaust of Earth. Both are trying to convince people they're fucked, both have the same kind of nutball enthusiasm, and both are oblivious to the fact that people either don't give a shit or people aren't taking them seriously. However, they're so convinced they're right, they don't care what anyone else thinks. At least, not until something comes up that makes them question themselves -- then they get quiet for a little bit.

The religious person who has visions and prompts jihad and starts claiming to wield the "sword of heaven" is like the UFO person who has seen the UFO, has been inside the UFO, has helped the aliens decorate the UFO, has had three alien children, and currently helps the aliens design their new Death Star. These people start out with the zeal of the second person, but somewhere along the line they lose touch with everything around them. As people like the otherworldly notion and these people are pretty much out of this world they attract attention of sorts. However, the results of tracking them and believing them often becomes destructive. These are the people who carry all the paraphrenalia of their beliefs with them, they shout their beliefs in the streets and damn those who won't join them, and they become irritable when it is ever suggested that they are wrong. Dangerous, dangerous people if you get on their bad side because either [insert deity] or [insert alien] is going to possess them and try to kill you.

Despite historical zeal for saying "Church WAZ LYFE 4EVA UNTIL NOW!!!!" there were atheists throughout time, making the exact same points that some of you are making. Our society seems exceptionally disillusioned (that may be in part because we're living in the thick of some bad shit), but so was theirs and they probably felt the same way about their societies. People like the first religious person and UFO spotter are the ones who make atheists and skeptics question the possibility of religion or extraterrestiality (I don't know if that's the right word). However, people like the third group have always turned everyone -- sometimes even truly religious people -- off.

This part doesn't sync up with the rest of your post skye...after this you start relating religious fanatics like the man I was talking about to UFO sighters...and you're right there...but in this quote you're absolutely wrong.

People who believe in God and worship him in no extreme way, have that personal relationship, and who say things like they feel the presence of God in their life are generally accepted because for the most part we respect their beleifes whether we share them or not...and one point the forum fag was right about, while not relevant to this thread, was that the election of George Bush is reflecting (something we already knew anyway) a very large majority of religious Americans.

Christians who feel opressed are watching too much TV and not interacting with the real world enough. There's opression for every group, granted, but the Christians are among the least opressed and your average Christian is in no way seen in the same way as UFO nuts.

And I'm going to have to disagree with you here, because often times the first category of people are instantly lumped with the second and third categories of people before others get to know them.

There are more categories than I listed for analogies of varying types of belief. But what you expressed about respecting in the first category adds to my intended point. They don't have to showboat their beliefs; as long as they believe it, they're satisfied. Often times, that's why people accept them more than the other two generalized categories.
