So, the crooks are stealing from the crooks?
 
2010-05-13 02:03:04 PM
I'm not talking about the jar, I'm talking about the tray!
 
2010-05-13 02:07:41 PM
Jesus saves! He just needs to hide it better.
 
2010-05-13 02:38:29 PM
Don't F*** with the Jesus!
 
2010-05-13 02:38:54 PM
It's probably just some kid helping himself since the priest were more than happy to help themselves to his butthole.
 
2010-05-13 02:39:54 PM
Jesus saves. I withdraw.
 
2010-05-13 02:39:56 PM
Except that Jesus never had a penny jar. Shekel jar. Whatever.
 
2010-05-13 02:40:25 PM
They say Jesus saves, but he was never really good with money.
It tended to slip right through the hole in his hands.

Baptists don't have priests-- they have douchebags.

Is it possible to steal from a fictional character?
 
2010-05-13 02:44:00 PM
I was curious, so... 150 lbs = 68 kgs at 2.5 grams per penny equals $273. But TFA says there was some paper money and probably change more valuable change so that's just the bottom end.

How do you steal from someone who would give you everything he could in a heartbeat? If grammy always gives me a cookie, and I go to grammys house one day and just take a cookie off that tray in the kitchen, is that stealing too?
 
2010-05-13 02:47:02 PM
I wonder what Jesus' saving throw is.

And what if instead of bread, they wanted cigarettes? And instead of giving it away to them, you sell it to them at such a low price it was like giving it away? Is that wrong, Bart?

Confession time:

When I was about 8 or so, I was forced to go to a Pentecostal church and school. The pastor was a charismatic, fire and brimstone southern baptist style preacher. The man owned 3 houses, drove several brand new cars (registered out of state, taxes cheaper) and his only job was being the pastor. His hypocrisy knew no bounds, his lies and manipulation were obvious to even a 9 year old boy. I hated the church, and I hated him. My mom did her assigned duty of tithing every week, even though we were dirt poor, and all of it was just too much for me.

I began to steal money from the offering bowls. Besides keeping what my mom gave me to put in the bowl, I started to swipe bills with a hand pass. I'd see a large bill, and palm it. I usually got about $40, but occasionally I hit the jackpot with $100 or more. I did this for years before I got caught. I must have swiped $10,000+ from those thieves and liars, and to this day I have not one drop of guilt about it.

Hell No!

So since they have taken the jar, I'm sure the church wants to donate more to them...

Matthew 5:38-42
38"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'[g] 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. 41If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Yes. Because even if she always gave you cookies in the past you still need to ask for permission. That's basic manners. That and you have no idea if she had plans with those cookies and she needed all of them for whatever. I am sure she would be happy to bake you a new batch but again, just ask first.

The fact that people are saying that it's okay to steal because it is a church is sad and kind of scary.

Congrats you are no better than the person you hated. Because two wrongs always make a right.

I guess grammy was a bad example. But only because, as you pointed out, she may have intentions for those cookies. But not the J-man I can't think of a situation where he wouldn't give you anything you asked for that he had to give. So, how does one steal from Jesus.

Nah, she would have known something was up. I had to blow it; food and video games for me and my friends. Couldn't buy anything I could keep, I would have been busted quick.

I was 9 years old, jackass, and stealing from liars and thieves might not be right, but it sure ain't hurting the innocent. Save your moral outrage for adults who know better.

So what you're really saying is, your contempt for an obvious thief and hypocrite made you become... a thief and therefore a hypocrite?

Why is he a hypocrite? He didn't like what the priest was doing, but he didn't preach against it.
