5. I think that's Shakespeare.....
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 01:57 PM by charlyvi
Hamlet, to be precise.

On edit: Of course, some of us consider Shakespeare as the bible.

giving Laertes a lecture before he goes to France....


"Neither a borrower, nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulleth edge of husbandry.


Hamlet, Act I, Scene III

20. christian mythology isn't very original is it?
you would think those guys who made that shit up would have come up with their own stories to make it more believable.

23. Nope
I know her/his list wasn't meant to be inclusive, but s/he forgot to say that the story of the tree/fruit of knowledge and the Great Flood/Noah's Ark were lifted from other religions too. And certainly don't forget about Hammurabi's Code being plagiarized for the Ten Commandments. Oh those pesky details that the churches don't want us to know!

12. Marketing people pump fads for all they're worth.
Christianity has big-time fad status right now, so it's ripe to be exploited for financial gain.

17. The crazy thing is, I'm getting it in my WORK email now
which has some pretty tough spam filters. I've been asked to take out a "Christian" mortgage (what the hell is that? Does it ask me to give 10% of my income to the lending institution so I can go to heaven?) and I've been asked to join a "Christian" singles online dating service. I'm married and would never join a "Christian" online dating service, anyway.

:eyes:

19. Hey you might check into that Christian mortgage
Call their attention to the teachings of Christ and see if you can get an *interest free* loan. After all, Jesus didn't like the money changers. :)

21. I get the same spam... and I also get spam for helping certain body parts
eh... enlarge.

What a country we live in. And the "average guy" won't even take note until their smut is taken away (i.e. internet and tv.) Now, I don't care if people like porn, it's not my business. I am offended with the mindset of: You can mess with my liberities, my civil rights, but when you take away my right to pronorgraphy, then I get mad.
