Its always the religious ones who take umbridge to harmless jokes. Never mind the fact that their religion tries to claim supremacy over all others.
Everyone takes offensive to everything.
Don't just pin it on the religious.
You know those pesky religious people you complain about being annoying?
Yeah, atheists can act the exact same way.
You make a damn good point. 3nodding
Personally, i was my religion teachers worst nightmare, i argued both sides, for and against. It didnt matter which side she tried to go for, i'd automatically go for the opposite out of sheer badness. But for me, that was just for fun. biggrin Had to break up the monotony of school somehow.
Is it wrong to look at it as worship the maker in your own way, and leave others to theirs so long as they aren't harming anyone? I take it that way as much as possible. But i love a damn good joke more. twisted
To be honest... I've got to sorta laugh at this. I'm the only atheist in a family full of bible-thumping whacks who really need to calm the heck down over this stupid shtick. Thankfully, I ain't gonna be over there or tommorow. I would pay to see them come Sunday.
I know. All this stuff with this weekend makes me worried about the people who are going to be turned away from Christianity if the said events don't happen. No one can know for sure the exact date. There are signs to show it will be sooner then later but no secret codes relieving any special dates. Please people don't judge us all for what one small part of us is saying.
Because they got a weak ego. When someone needs so much fantasy to keep the sanity, it's because this person is already insane... And religions are made of fantasy. You can have magic people with wings, blue people with many arms, or poneys, they're all fantasy. And when you believe you're too close to them, you're already too far from reality... When the Ego can't bear reality, it needs some fantasy to stay "okay"... but when it needs lots of fantasy, there's a huge problem behind...
You guys are now doing blasphemy against my beliefs again. Why is this site SO against Jesus Christ and/or Christianity? If you guys really don't believe in Him then why even bother making fun of Him? I noticed that most people make fun of Christianity way more then any other religious beliefs. This site has users with a broad view of religion and politics so why try to offend others?
How would you feel if a whole website kept bashing what you believe in?
P.S I don't believe that the world is going to end on the 21st and I don't believe it's going to end in 2012.
It's not my fault you follow a horrid religion.
I think, after the many countless times your religion has forced upon and killed countless innocents, something like this is excusable.
Now, if you don't like it do not partake in this site of delightful humor.
If you don't believe the world is going to end on Saturday, then Gaia is not mocking your beliefs. End of story.
True but by simply using the whole raptor Jesus meme,which I have always found offensive, they are making fun of Christianity.
I see absolutely no official Gaia reference to anything regarding the Internet meme Raptor Jesus, outside of user conjecture. So as of right now, you are angry that Gaia is using a pun. If you are offended by something, it does not mean all Christians are and it does not mean Gaia is wrong for making a common pun. There are actual attacks and actual offenses to religion. This is not even close to one of them.
