I agree with you on most of your points. ESPECIALLY about the fundamentalists. Anything (especially religion) when taken to extremes can be dangerous, and has shown to be so in the past. But I really don`t think most people on these boards bash Christians for what went on during the crusades. That would be ridiculous. I was just saying I find it hysterical to see people on these boards saying thing in the ilk of `OMG anyone who believes this poo is close minded/retarded/living in the dark ages/etc.` Not trying to start any flame wars... I honestly don`t care enough to do so. Just pointing out a little observation. And as far as modern day prosthelytising by normal people (NOT in the form of these retarded pjs haha)... if you TRULY believed someone was going to hell if they did not believe in God, how much would you have to hate them NOT to share what you believe?
I`m sorry, but those things harken back to the age of the Crusades, where Christian warriors were slaughtering their way throughout Europe in an attempt to "convert" everyone to Christianity by force. Surely you wouldn`t want to reinforce this mentality in your children? I would agree that the Bible of course wouldn`t be promoting that type of thing, but these are clear, undeniable symbols of those dark times.
Oops, must make it internet-approved: "LOL WTF thoz st00pid kids" ;)
Unfortunately these PJ`s are scary though just like some rather out there fundamentalists. I don`t think the glazed look in the boy`s eyes is helping whatever cause this is supposed to be addressing, however in the end, the people who made this are just as closed-minded as 85% of this board. Believe me. I have had to deal with them.
After all, it isn`t the armor that`s a metaphor...it`s what each piece represents that is. You`re wearing 50 pounds of indestructablitiy while all that "truth", "righteousness", and "faith" are just in your head.
and sex = truth? new placement needed
*Hoping the rapture happens soon and that I am "Left Behind"*
Uhmmm, I think the Mormons beat ya too that idea. Look up Mormon underwear.
I`m a Christian and I think these PJ`s are kinda silly. However, It doesn`t hurt anyone and if it helps a kid get to sleep then good for them.
WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE....OF WORSHIP!
lol, wow. I`m a full blown non-believer and this is the first time I`ve ever made a priest rape joke. You`d think I`d have been all over that by now.
The same reason they do this.
*Not to be used as actual armor.
I am among the most andi-Fundamentalists people You`ll eve meet, and at first your statement seemed to make perfect sense, but after reading osiris` comment, maybe he`s right. Certainly not ALL 40-50 year olds are as kind and "on our side" as he, but perhaps there are more "good old people" out there than we realize. We only fail to see them because we don`t pick fights with them in the streets.I am forced against my will to attend a Church of Christ and I have seen teenagers, people MY age, acting as stupid as any 60-year-old-fundie. It is these institutions of mind games and slavery that must be destroyed, not an entire generation. I appreciate finding someone who shares my radical beliefs, but Osiris seems to be your friend, not your enemy. Notice He didn`t once say "Jesus doth fill my heart with gladness" or "Repent, sinner!" in his post. The real enemy is the fundamentalist church.
...but...you...uh...nevermind. ( @[email protected])
Is your wish a blanket thing? When YOU hit the big 4-0, will you "die in your sleep" as well?
I seem to recall that MY generation is the one that laid the groundwork for YOURS. MY generation is the one that advanced the technology that you use to put such ridiculous statements out there for the world to see.
Whether or not you are capable of comprehending it, those of us between the ages of 40-50 are on YOUR side. The baby-boomers and the generation that came before them are the problem, not those of us who followed them.
Your statement is easily one of the dumbest things I`ve ever seen anyone post on IAB.
Learn who your enemies are. Those of us who were born in the 1960`s are the ones who made your fight possible.
Wow, aren`t we acting like a selfish egomaniac?
I might buy one of these for St. George`s day...
