The newsfeed is starting to get crowded with "If you don't want me to say Merry Christmas, then your ignorant ass can delete me!" and "I'm an American, and if you don't like our customs and traditions, then you can LEAVE!"
Had a good Christmas shopping update a while ago from a girl I went to high school with. She reported that she "went to the mall in Huntsville and saw a couple of QUEERS in the bed and bath store". She says "That's right, I said queers. Gay means happy. Queer means strange. And that's what they are, I don't care who gets offended. They were sniffing everything. It was gross."
I always want to delete these dummies, but then I wind up keeping them to see more stupidity, for entertainment.
Sometimes a person will ask me why I don't go to church and stuff. My favorite answer "I can't muster up enough hate to be a good christian".
As good a retort as any, and better than most!
I didn't create it. Shit just shows up, haha. I guess I just approve too many friend requests from people I barely remember.
I like many of my friends on Facebook....we just dont believe the same way or the same things.
Has anyone come up with a good response to let people know I am thinking of them when they ask for prayers...I generally say "my thoughts are with you".
Also I would love to have a response, that would provoke thought, but not much else.....when it comes to all the "holiday tree" posts....any ideas would be great.
Does anyone have the title of a good book of quotes/responses to over the top theist posts?
The bible comes right out and bans xmas trees.
Jeremiah 10:2-4 King James Version (KJV)
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
here is a quote from a Christian site no less:
"In ancient times the winter solstice was celebrated in Babylon as the birth day of Tammuz, the god of vegetation. According to the pagans, the god Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree and leave gifts upon it. This festival became known as the Saturnalia, and friends and family would exchange gifts."
and this of course:
