If I'da known how easy it was...

I'd have created my own religion a long time ago...

"To put that in perspective, the cultural gap between Senegal and Kenya is as dramatic as the chasm that separates, say, London and Tehran."

"Imagine singing 'God Save the Queen' in Farsi, and you grasp the enormity of the gaffe."

RELATED: Hey, what about Pastafarianism?
"Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster."

"It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him."

ANd they shall be known by their acts...
Make that the Founder of Kwanzaa
In 1971 Karenga (Founder), Louis Smith, and Luz Maria Tamayo were convicted of felony assault and false imprisonment for assaulting and torturing two women from the Us organization, Deborah Jones & Gail Davis, over a two day period. [4] A May 14, 1971 article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women: "Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Ms. Davis's mouth and placed against Ms. Davis's face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said."

Yeah Scientology was a great scam to make a buck.

Now of course we have the green cult all over the world.

lemon: Oh, and those people in the Bible were all saints. Yep, every last one of them.

Regardless, they are all delusions. But, if it helps you sleep at night.

Anonymous, if you think believing that God knows your every thought and sees your every move, and he'll decide where you spend eternity "helps you sleep at night" you are as stupid as you are cowardly.

"anon says... Oh, and those people in the Bible were all saints."

good grief, man... the bible? why not bring vlad the impaler, or genghis khan into the discussion? it's all relative, huh?

meanwhile, you don't have a problem with... "were convicted of felony assault and false imprisonment for assaulting and torturing two women"

fivefeetoffury: Cowardly? Really? Because I use an 'anonymous' identity rather than an almost equally anonymous nickname? I don't care to get a Google/Blogger account, but even if I did, how much less anonymous is that? Care to post your name/address/phone number? No? Then you're anonymous.

As for your comment, I don't believe in any of it, and I sleep perfectly well at night - or I WOULD if we didn't have a new baby girl. For the record, I can't discern whether you think I believe or not. Your comment was somewhat ambiguous.

neo: lemon clearly wanted to impugn Kwanzaa by attacking it's leader. I was showing that most of them are con men, hucksters, criminals, murderers and charlatans - no matter what religion the started, witnessed for, or preached about. lemon used biblical language in the opening sentence of his post, so perhaps you can forgive me for interpreting that as an endorsement of biblical thought. I doubt it, though.

You suggest I ignored the sensationally violent aspect of the post, and you're right...because I didn't care to discuss the post at all. I was pointing out the subtext and discussing that. Personally, I don't waste mental or emotional effort worrying about something that has to do with ridiculous inter-religious potshots, and that a) I don't know about, b) I can't confirm, c) comes from one side in the argument and d) I can't change even if it were true. I find the constant bickering between believers humourous most of the time, except where there insistence on their imaginary friends causes them to annoy me, accuse me, or kill me. And frankly I'm getting pretty sick of all of it.
