  1. @Insane: “… mediocre reason is religion wasn’t around.”- “if” would be the correct word to use in this sentence… “if.”

  2. @mark1989: Many thanks to your magnificent insight to the English language. I’m not sure that viewers of this site could have deciphered my simple typo.

  3. @ Insane… I am gone one freaking day…

    Let us get something straight. You all say that everybody has freedom of speech, and yet, you morons go and crap all over someone who actually does just that – has free speech! Now, I understand if you fear for your life if you say something a tad out of line (because your mother would beat you to a bloody pulp) but once you let the reins go and not give a FLYING FUCK what every DOUCHEBAG says, you will experience true freedom of speech. You guys seriously don’t know where the Douchebag section on this web page is? I am sure you will feel a whole lot more comfortable there.

    Back to Insane. I APPLAUDE you for your statement and say – FUCK RELIGION TOO! Any of you pussies who feel like burning me at the stake – do your fucking homework and go read some Richard Dawkins, mmmmkay? This is Svetlana.

    PS: That’s who??

    Ssssvetlana.

  4. Also read Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris.
    And how do scholars know for sure that Jesus was a Jew?
    He thought his mother was a virgin, and she thought he was god!

  5. wow, this topic sure did skate off in a new direction.

    as a person who tends to follow a more earth/nature honoring religion, I respect Insane and Sveltana’s opinions. I am also not a huges fan of organized religion. But um guys, its only lamebook remember?

  6. oops, sorry Svetlana, didn’t mean to typo in your name.

  7. @Svetlana: I had to leave you an interesting present. I’m glad you like it 😀 And many thanks for the accolades.

    @yaya: That is my beef with religion. The organised ones like Catholicism and Christianity. They contradict themselves so frequently (and on important items to their belief system) that, that alone makes me question their legitimacy – not that there is any. In all fairness it was the people I pointed out in comment 49 that turned this feed into a anti-religion crusade. I made a comment, said people didn’t like it, so off I went again.

    @Mishkin: I really doubt that Mary was a virgin. If she wasn’t putting out Joseph would have found the next available broad ready to go. Like he was going to put up with having a severe case of blueballitis! I also vaguely remember reading (many years ago now) that Mary and Joseph tried to conceive a child without luck.

  8. are you kidding, its CHRISTmas as in Jesus Christ…haha wow. Someone people on here are just as dense as the lamebookers, not trying to push a religious agenda as my family doesn’t even do the whole christian thing but theres still a background to it

  9. @anduin1 – now you too can see what the background on Baby Jesus Day is – http://www.nobeliefs.com/facts.htm#anchor189702

  10. Catholicism is a branch of Christianity

  11. @ yayforme – please don’t be an ignorant person, and click the link above… I know you want to…

  12. @Svetlana: You are a very naughty girl for posting that link and you will go straight to hell. Whatever next? You’ll be telling me Santa Claus doesn’t exist…

  13. Mercure, you didn’t know?? *Tears in eyes, darting around* I don’t know how to break this to you… *Silent sobbing* but, neither does the Easter Bunny! *Burst into tears whilst running away*

  14. I’m was not talking about holidays. I just don’t understand Insane’s quote: “Christians actually ‘stole’ their religion from Catholics”. Roman Catholics? Eastern Catholics? By Christians does he mean “Protestants”?

  15. @yayforme: [Roman]Catholicism was around before Christianity – and before that there were many more practised religions. Christianity took what they liked from the Catholics and what they didn’t like they altered. As for the fine details of different branches of Christianity and Catholics, I do not know, and I do not care.

  16. Is Insane for real? How the hell can you make such a lame error?

    @Insane: Christian History (potted) 101:
    From foundation of christianity to present day: there is only christian. There are lots of flavours: coptic, hittite, (after great schism) eastern orthodox, etc, and within the western canon there were different churches for a while – eg. Celtic, Roman etc. (‘catholic’ is just another word for ‘orthodox’.) During the middle ages and later the secular power of Rome increased, and the Roman church (and the Pope) took greater control over the whole of European christianity.

    After the Reformation, there was protestantism. No doubt many protestants would insist theirs is the true faith and the catholic church the aberration, but the fact is they wanted to secede from the power of Rome.

    There was no ‘theft’ of ideas or anything.

    You say you don’t know or care about these distinctions, and yet you insist on making them. Can I suggest you learn a little before irritating the rest of us.

    Oh and one more thing. Many catholics find ‘roman catholic’ offensive. But to suggest they are not christian is probably even more so.

  17. @excatholica Well said.

  18. Yep, couldn’t have said it better myself.

  19. Christ on a cracker

    Hey, Katelyn, wait a minute, you diseased infected whore! Don’t be talking about me or my daddy in such way. It’s NOT our fault you were born retarded, blame your dad and his sister for it.

  20. @excatholica: Sweet mother of mercy! Are you really that retarted? Let me repeat this phrase, as I have said before, this time worded a little more carefully so your ego may have the ability to comprehend what I mean to say. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT RELIGION! I DO NOT CARE IF I UPSET THEIR FOLLOWERS!! RELIGION IS EVIL!!! Seriously just no. STFU and GTFO!!! If you bothered to even read my comment you would see what I was trying to say, and my admittance to not knowing the specifics because….I DON’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK!!!

  21. Chill yer beans insane, I also think religion is a pile of cack. My point is, you insist to the point of apoplexy that you don’t give a shit about fine distinctions, while attempting to educate the rest of us about those very distinctions you ostensibly don’t give a shit about.

    If you wade into these waters, it’s a bit rich that you expect those already knee-deep in them to ‘stfu’ or ‘gtfo’. One might say the same to you.

    I would suggest, for the sake of your own sanity and to avoid an aneurysm, that you avoid discussion of christian vs catholic (or indeed any other distinction you “don’t give a shit about” in future.

    That is all.

  22. *about”) sorry.

    … anyway, I am discussing history not theology. Theology is a waste of space. History, on the other hand…

  23. @excatholica: My apologies excatholica. I’m a little frustrated that what started out as a simple comment has evolved into a novel of ignorance – contributions by myself and others. Anyway my point being that I was venting/winging at first and ended up being crucified by people that refused to read my statement properly. My point ‘was’ simple. FUCK RELIGION!, with a short ‘ironic’ story. If I have met you with hostility I’m sure you can understand why.

  24. Katelyn is a retard on about 7 different levels.
    She probably doesn’t know the difference between “Merry ChrisTmas” and “Happy Holidays” either.
    *Chrismas, excuse me.

  25. Jesus Christ, Katelyn.

  26. About the last one: what baffled me was Henry’s comment, “You’re 4 months late”. And then, in the comments, Leprechaunish (#25) said “Christmas is a pagan holiday, Jesus was born in the spring.” Dude, what? Are you people being serious? Jesus was born in December, and DIED in the Spring.

    And I might as well add that I’m not a religious person. I’ve never really believed that there’s a God, but I don’t deny his existence, either. I’m also not an agnostic: I just don’t think about this. Believe or don’t, just treat others as your equal, that has been my lifeline ever since I was a kid.

    But we do have religion as a school subject here in Finland, and I do remember the basic fact that Christmas was the birthday. I was an angel in every school play.
