I've sort of been avoiding the Twilight phenomenon. I'm worried that it might tempt me into a dark path--you know, Christianity. Actually, I'm just not big on the whole vampire genre, for some reason. Probably because it seems to be yet another gloss on the whole "sex is dangerous" theme, like we don't get that message enough. So I'm afraid I'm missing the reference.
And anyhow, Jesus was a zombie, not a vampire. Though there is that whole blood-drinking communion thing...no, no, Jesus always ends up eating people's brains, so definitely zombie.
I can't remember any of the details, but this one time I got into a 7 hour debate with this fundi about the whole gay marriage thing. He had been saying some rude things to my best friend at the time who was a lesbian and boy that guy pissed me off.
I can't think of one who's actually said it to me, but the ones who think Abraham was doing the right thing by getting ready, willing and able to kill Isaac give me the creeps. If it were true, can you imagine what the whole experience was like for Isaac? And he was expected to trust either his father or YHWH after that?
the other day, in the midst of a discussion about god and such, I was asked what it would take for me to believe in god? I responded with some line about maybe having my grandmother come back to life, etc., etc.
When I asked her what it would take for her to stop believing, she said nothing. Absolutely nothing. Not reason, logic, or evidence. I commented that this was blind faith. She proceeded to tell me that blind faith was a good thing. I mentioned that's exactly how 9/11 happened. She saw nothing wrong with the faith part of their actions. That is the scariest thing I've ever heard a theist actually admit.
