Fun fact:

Not everybody's reason for being offended has anything to do with Christianity or religion. Try again.


Then why don't you explain to us what other things it's about.


Trollers gonna troll.
I believe in big J, but I'm not offended by the item.
Its just based off of a dumb meme that was never funny.

I prefer my raptors and Jesus as two separate things.

I'm also Christian but don't care about the item, a item isn't going to make me re-think my religion and I KNOW it's just for fun. People who take it further then just something done as a joke have no lives.

I remember when some guy got pissed because Fanta was a sponsor for awhile and they were all "GAIA IS PRO NAZI!"

I've been posting about it in other threads, so this post is really just going to be a copy-pasta of other things I've written.

This isn't about Christianity or religion. It's about making fun of people's beliefs. Like "LOL, there are people that are so crazy that they think the world is going to end! ROFL!"

It's not . . . funny. People being with their families, eating what they feel is going to be their last meal . . . that's not funny. It's not something to make fun of. People quitting their jobs, giving away their money and their house . . . that's not funny. The belief might be ridiculous, but it's not something to mock.

It just strips people of their dignity. It's belittling.

At least with Southpark and Family Guy and shows like that, they mock anything and everything. But with Gaia, it's not like that. Gaia will ban you for trolling and making fun of others. I got a warning for saying "they're being dicks," 'they' being an anonymous group of people.

If someone went around posting a picture of a Raptor Jesus in a Religion/Morality thread, they'd be warned for spamming and for trolling. For posting material meant to annoy, bother, or irritate people.

Why is it that Gaia doesn't have any religious symbols - no images of Christ, or Buddha, no star of David or Pillars of Faith, but it's perfectly find to post memes mocking what beliefs they prescribe as being silly? If we're going to mock anyone who believes in the Rapture, then why not mock anyone who believes in Jesus or Buddha or God? These beliefs can all be seen as irrational or crazy or strange. By making fun of some and not others, you're saying that some are stupid and others are not. Some are worth showing dignity and respect to, others are not.

Apparently, people who believed that they were going to leave this earth yesterday are not worth showing respect to.

It wasn't Christians spreading the rumor, some dude came up with the date after some "calculations" he's been wrong like..two other times I think.

and that man should've realised, in the bible it says "guessing the end of the world is a sin, it is not an answer given to Humanity."
Thus, we don't need the answer because if the world ends, we'll just die.
No epic -nuke- the asteroids thing (Morgan freeman explains why Nuking asteroids is not a good idea) we just die.
There will NEVER be nuclear war as the UN controls all nukes, Plus, we have anti-nuke defences.

The world will not end. We've had 200,000 years of history, the Dinosaurs had 60 million.
I think we'll live a bit longer.

I don't see what the big hype is, but then again, some people are more sensitive than others.
