Last time I checked, Christianity was a massive list of prohibitions on what you could do coupled with a bunch of false promises and threats.

This sounds familiar...


Scene 3




[clop clop]
ARTHUR: Old woman!
DENNIS: Man!
ARTHUR: Man, sorry. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/oldwoman.wav) What knight lives in that castle over there?
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven.
ARTHUR: What?
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven -- I'm not old! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/imnotold.wav)
ARTHUR: Well, I can't just call you `Man'.
DENNIS: Well, you could say `Dennis'.
ARTHUR: Well, I didn't know you were called `Dennis.'
DENNIS: Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you? (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/dennis.wav)
ARTHUR: I did say sorry about the `old woman,' but from the behind you looked--
DENNIS: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/frmbhind.wav)
ARTHUR: Well, I AM king...
DENNIS: Oh king, eh, very nice. An' how'd you get that, eh? By exploitin' the workers (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/exploit.wav)-- by 'angin' on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic an' social differences in our society! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/dogma.wav)....If there's ever going to be any progress--
WOMAN: Dennis, there's some lovely filth down here. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/anyprgs.wav) Oh -- how d'you do?
ARTHUR: How do you do, good lady. I am Arthur, King of the Britons. Who's castle is that?
WOMAN: King of the who? (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/kingwho.wav)
ARTHUR: The Britons.
WOMAN: Who are the Britons? (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/britains.wav)
ARTHUR: Well, we all are. we're all Britons and I am your king.
WOMAN: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/colectiv.wav)
DENNIS: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/dictator.wav)..... A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes--
WOMAN: Oh there you go, bringing class into it again. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/clasagan.wav)
DENNIS: That's what it's all about if only people would--
ARTHUR: Please, please good people. I am in haste. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/inhaste.wav) Who lives in that castle?
WOMAN: No one lives there.
ARTHUR: Then who is your lord?
WOMAN: We don't have a lord. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/nolord.wav)
ARTHUR: What?
DENNIS: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/commune.wav) We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.
ARTHUR: Yes.
DENNIS: But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/biweekly.wav)
ARTHUR: Yes, I see.
DENNIS: By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,-- (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/intrnlaf.wav)
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: --but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more--
ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/orderyou.wav)
WOMAN: Order, eh -- who does he think he is?
ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/didntvot.wav)
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then? (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/howking.wav)
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/thatswhy.wav)
DENNIS: Listen -- strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/strange.wav)Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/tart.wav)
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin' I was an empereror just because some moistened bink had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/scimitar.wav)
ARTHUR: Shut up! Will you shut up!
DENNIS: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system. (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/nowwesee.wav)
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/violence.wav)--- HELP! HELP! I'm being repressed! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/repress.wav)
ARTHUR: Bloody peasant! (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/blpesant.wav) DENNIS: Oh, what a give away. Did you here that, did you hear that, eh? (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/giveaway.wav).... That's what I'm on about (http://www.montypython.net/sounds/hg/onabout.wav) -- did you see him repressing me, you saw it didn't you?

Even those denominations who say that the only thing needed for salvation is to accept Christ as savior quickly add on a laundry list of prohibited activities, pursuits, and beliefs.

And you are free to accept or reject without repercussion.

Still you radical atheists attack Christianity with rabid dog like magnitude.
Such behavior is indicative of deep rooted emotional/psychological issues.
Another strange thing... at the same time, you defend a religion that is totally contrary to liberal policy and advocates violence. Get your priorities straight.:upeyes:

And you are free to accept or reject without repercussion. In the US, it's theoretically true you're free to accept or reject any religion without repercussion. But that isn't the result of Christianity, it's the result of a secular government decision.

This is why the First Amendment is a wonderful thing. The concept being, to not allow a government to dictate a religion, or regulate free expression. Without this right, there can be no substantial freedom for anyone.

Everybody celebrated their respective religions on Good Friday in one form or another.

Christians celebrated Jesus by praying, worship, etc.

Environmentalists celebrated Mother Earth by turning off lights, recycling, etc.

Atheists celebrated FSM by watching porn, getting drunk, etc.

Catholics celebrated The Blessed Virgin Mary by performing superfluous rituals, attending liturgical services, etc.

The list goes on and on.

In summary, everybody celebrated Good Friday in their own unique way, even if they didn't know they were doing it.

Until you want to drink in a dry county.
Until you want to buy a 6 pack of beer on Christmas.
Until you want to get an abortion.
Until you fall in love with someone of the same sex and want to marry them.

But basically, as long as what you want to do falls in line with Christian tenets, yeah, they protect your rights.

In Pakistan over the weekend, Muslims continued to brutalize Christians -a young woman was raped and a pastor attacked.

Animal Mother claims to defend religions as long as they don't hurt anybody, so will you now stop defending Islam, AM?

'Alarmed Pig Farmer' (Islam is very porkophobic) at another site, wrote, "Is rape a sacrament in the Islamic belief system? I mean, the blonde American journalist got the service in Cairo, then the brunette got serviced in Libya. Come to think of it, is Islam a product or a service?"

The articles author is upset that the media doesnt portray Earth Day and the spirit behind it in a negative light? Taking care of the environment is hard to turn into a negative issue. Whereas the rampant child rape in the church along with their covering it up is a pretty easy story to write in a negative manner. How does one make that a positive?

What happened in Cairo and in Libya is not about religion. It is however about politics.

A woman was raped in Italy. Does that mean all Catholics support rape and that Catholicism is about rape?

So all Christians prayed? All the FSM worshippera I know did the same and donated to Charity. It's a fact. I made an absolute statement. All Christians got high and watched porn while bathing kn mayonnaise.

I'm glad one leftist has finally admitted Islam is more about politics than religion, thank you Toorop. Now we can stop this treasonous foolishness promoted by the left that Islam gets to do anything it likes, including overthrowing the US, "because our First Amendment protects religion".:upeyes:

If a woman was raped in Italy, it may very well have been by a Muslim. Mohammed said it was okay to rape infidel women, and set an example by doing so himself. Jesus, OTOH, endorsed no sex outside of one-man-one-woman marriage. And He said do unto others as you would have them do unto you -in other words, rape is out. He further said if anyone harmed a child, it would be better for him to be drowned in the middle of the sea. If some 'Christian' rapes a woman or a child, he is going against Christ's explicit teachings. But if a Muslim rapes a non-Muslim (or his one of his own wives), he is backed up by Islam.

You're only partly right there AM. Biblically speaking Christians are supposed to love their enemy. It's only when some christain leaders decide that everyone has to be Christian or die that there have been problems. Governments and the Catholic church for the most part have been the problem, not Chrisianity itself. It's not like Muslims who are actually told to kill folks by their bible.

Related to this thread and possibly some of the dhimmis who abound therein, an article today at jihadwatch is titled, "Pakistan paying US lobbyists to deny it helped bin Laden".

Then show me where God says that. Does that mean I can murder and steal? Many people here will be glad to do that because they need to be told they will be punished for doing those things and that is why they don't do them, while your average atheist does not do them because they are decent people.
