Not much to say about that… it’s pretty freaking straightforward. Except… maybe… SCIENCE! Feel the awesome!
19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
So… what IS the net worth of the Catholic church? Could poverty be eliminated if every Christian church and all Christian property including the Vatican was sold and the money used to… well, eliminate poverty?
And they’re not doing it because…
Not getting any time to post! Last weekend I was down in another town (Hamilton…) helping my in-laws buy a business. This week is all out crazy and this weekend I’m down in Wellington visiting my brother-in-law.
So many things going on. So many things to do. So little time.
Be totally awesome or don’t be at all.
Christianity Disproved: This site almost makes me want to stop blogging. Why? Because it covers just about everything just about perfectly. It is beautifully laid out and brilliantly presented.
It wins. Go there. Read it.
I guess the only thing remaining is to ridicule those who still believe in these arse-backwards superstitions. Somebody has to do it. If more people did it, perhaps there’d be less idiocy around.
For reason and science!
My wife showed me this video (Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IAhDGYlpqY) last night. My brother posted the link to it on Facebook. Now, that was a bit of a surprise to me I have to admit, since I didn’t realise my brother was a hard-core Jesusianismist. Perhaps it was wishful thinking that he was, at the very least, agnostic. Not, it seems. I have tried to remember how it is that I came to have the incorrect impression of him and it’s quite strange really since we’ve spoken about religion a number of times. He never said he was a Jesusianismist. He never took issue with my (rampant, unrestrained) anti-theism.
Anyway, I watched the video, I had many issues, I toyed with writing a post about it. Then I saw The Amazing Atheist (bless his brilliant banana loving ass) had already made a video that takes it apart, in style. So I now happily post it here since it says just about everything that needs to be said.
Take it away TJ:
Yea. Christians doing what Christians do: bend ‘your beliefs’ until they fit what you want to believe. The entire video is empty, contradictory and filled with marketing speak. It’s a sales job that sells nothing new. It’s controversy stirring where there is none. It is par for the course as far as Christians are concerned.
On top of that, it’s not new either, I’ve blogged on that particular statement of idiocy before: I hate religion but love I god. Silly Christians are silly.
If it wasn’t for the stupid subject, the poem and video would have been quite nice though. Quite nice.
