Those crazy Catholics aren't happy unless someone is getting blown inside their churches.

I love BAF. It's always a happy day at the office when we need to call them for a quote.

I hear Catholic priests really are big fans of ass.

I visited their factory once with a group from our engineering department. Those fans are farking amazing. The amount of air that the 24' fan puts out at full speed is unbelievable and they are just about silent.

A friend of mine's father is a priest - he had a very generous benefactor that made a last minute $50,000 donation to his parish while they were remodeling the church. That paid for the central air for which I was thankful when I attended mass last month.

Did they drive their car there, praying to Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration?

That's just the gates of hell opening.

More expensive perhaps?

As an installer of many Big Ass Fans, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

The church probably doesn't have the ducts and they'd have to advents.
 
2008-07-30 03:15:16 PM
Well, why not? After all Jesus didn't say anything about suffering for your religion.

Oh. He did? That's the whole point of Catholicism?

Nevermind.

Can't they just pray the heat away? I mean, it works for everything else.

I heard a joke about this (or something similar)

One day a nun was installing a nice round Big Ass Fan in the church rectory. A deacon was walking by and said "Wow! what a nice round Big Ass Fan"! The Sister said "SIR You shouldn't talk to me like that. I'm a Nun", and the man said "but that's the name of it. A nice round Big Ass Fan".

So the sister finished up with the fan and went back to the Rectory and said "Mother Superior I finished installing the nice round Big Ass Fan".
The Mother superior said "Sister you shouldn't talk like that", and the Sister said "but Mother Superior that's the name of it. A nice round Big Ass Fan".
So the mother superior said "Well, I'll go inspect your work on the nice round Big Ass Fan".
While she was looking at it The Monsignor walked in and she said "Monsignor look at the nice round Big Ass Fan that the Sister installed!".
The Monsignor said "Mother Superior you shouldn't talk like that", and the Mother Superior said "But that's the name of it, a nice round Big Ass Fan".
So the Monsignor said "well, show me to the switch and I'll turn it on".

That evening at supper there was a new priest at the table, and he said "WOW, the breeze from that fan is so nice!".
And the sister said"I installed the nice round Big Ass Fan".
And Mother Superior said "I inspected the nice round Big Ass Fan".
AND The Monsignor said "I turned the nice round Big Ass Fan on".

And the new priest said "I LIKE THIS FARKING PLACE ALREADY"!

In older churches there isn't any place to run the duct work, so you'd be limited to spot air conditioners, which are unsightly, or window units, which are even worse. Neither is likely to provide enough cooling for a church with high vaulted ceiling.

I had to look these up for work once. Their website is pretty funny for a business selling fans. In the catalog request area the choices for "why do you want a catalog" were something like: I'm killing time at work, My stupid boss made me, etc. Then they post the letters people send them complaining about their businesses name.

The whole point of Christianity in general is to suffer persecution for God, to make your life like that of Christ. That is the whole reason that Christians beleaguer that they are being persecuted even when they aren't. Because they NEED to be persecuted. It's an important part of the religion.

As to where I got that, years of being a Christian zombie being brainwashed that very idea. It took several more years for me to break the brainwashing. I'm sure if I spent some time searching, I could find a writing or two that expresses this belief but being as I'm playing around at work, I better leave that up to someone else.

The Big Ass Fans are fantastic. We use them in one of our warehouses, and they work like hell. Good choice.

I'm sure there are cases where suffering happens as well as persecution, but I hardly think that that is the point of Catholicism. Any Catholics care to clarify this?

So Catholics believe that Christ suffered so we can......suffer?

Welcome to the illogical Christianity.

Christians (especially and including Catholics) believe that Christ died for their sins and therefore, in order for them to live the right life, they must follow in Christ's footsteps. To them, that means being persecuted, suffering, and dying for their beliefs. Certainly the early Christians believed this because so many of them were being persecuted by Rome. Look at the Saints. Most of them had hard, suffering lives, many ending in execution by Romans or other anti-Christian governments. The Saints are put out there as symbols of what a good Christian is and should be emulated by their followers.

Thus, it's become engrained into the religion that persecution is an important part of it. Just look how guilt is used to keep followers in line for just the same reasons.

Quit trolling. It's not even worth refuting. This thread should be about big asses, and good puns.
