This is just very poor satire,right? Right?

Now the big question: Do they fight on Sundays? Or is that the day of rest/healing up?

Fight club wasn't about winning or losing. It wasn't about words. The hysterical shouting was in tongues, like at a Pentecostal Church.

Our fathers were our models for God. If our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about God? LISTEN TO ME! You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you. He never wanted you. In all probability, he hates you. This is not the worst thing that can happen.

We don't need him!

Goes back to "Know how I know you didn't read the book" territory. No chrisitan group would get behind that book. But they would get behind Occupy because Jesus trashed the money changer's tables at the temple.

Oh, and I finally figured out the name of the unnamed narrator. It's really obvious in the end.

I like both endings of the movie and the book. I just think the book's ending is a little better.

haha great point. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Marla Singer said "I want to have your abortion." They would lose their mind at that part.

We should have seen this coming:

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on Earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it." (Matthew 10:34-39 NASB)

Why confine it to Texas.

I say the US South vs the Middle East.

With luck, they will kill each other off thus ending several problems at once.

It's working out OK for Ben Henderson so far, as well as Jon Jones (save for the brief hiccup/DUI).

Did Ben Henderson ever carry a 9 foot crucifix into the octagon before a fight ?

He isn't THAT christian then is he ?

I really don't get this idea of "Christianizing" ordinary things that have nothing to do with religion. It just makes you look dumb.

Well if you're going to fight him just remember he doesn't have any moves of his own, just stuff he copies from other people.

When I used to be a Christian, a lot of the guys at church had this strange obsession with UFC.

Small town lawyers in the South have a saying: "There's no fight like a church fight." Usually it refers to members suing the church, but it'll do for this situation as well.
 
2012-06-19 09:26:34 AM
It would be an interesting day to see the GAWKER web media group publish an article complimentary to Christians and the church.

Who am I kidding. Their heads would explode.
