Jamrock: It's really too much to ask for modesty in dress and actions in a church? What is the argument against this?

All of you religion-bashers obviously have no place in a church, and wouldn't want to be in one.

Some people take their faith somewhat seriously. It's not an unreasonable request.

The only thing that gets me is that they're always asking WOMEN to be modest, even though clearly it should be expected of both sexes. Trust me, I'm Muslim, and it's infuriating sometimes.

A lot of them cut their hair short too. This proves that they are lesbians and they have lesbian orgies at their "nunneries." That would never have happened if they'd kept wearing their habits and kept their heads covered, because lesbians are insatiable and can't resist a woman with short hair.

Even worse, no man is allowed to touch them. These nunneries should be burned to the ground. Not just for keeping these women away from men, but for turning them into lesbians with their sexy modern clothing.

Kome: How the hell any self-respecting person can claim to be religious is beyond me, when all it offers about the human condition is insult after insult.


The game appears to be built such that your normal, human functions are considered filthy and wrong, and simply by possessing them you have committed a crime and must seek out help. It puts you into debt with the church for "cleansing" you, and the repayment is almost always financial. My personal favorite in this con-game is the concept of "original sin". They really got painted into a corner when they realized you can't claim a baby owes the church anything, so they came up with that whopper to explain how we are literally born into the world already in debt to the church. The guy who invented that one must have woke up laughing every morning.

kukukupo: I agree with the church/mosque on this one.

Certain places should have standards, and in this day and age people seem to think they can wear thongs, sweat pants, and sleeveless T-shiats, etc anywhere they go. Show a little class.


I have no problem with specific churches or local organizations having dress codes for events, but forming national coalitions to try to influence national lawmakers to adopt that kind of micromanaging regulatory attitude gets you a big old 100% American go-fark-yourself made right here in the U.S.A.

The First Church of Christ the Wearer of Three-piece Suits doesn't get to tell the campus intramural disc golf and outdoor Christ worship club that they can't wear shorts while catching a frisbee for Jesus, is what I'm saying here.

//You can base your little club on whatever bullshiat you want, but you don't get to tell other people's clubs how to handle their own shiat.

They cover their women and even have to dance with each other at social events because touching a woman is like touching the devil. Sorry but any god that would dictate that women must be covered is a stupid god. Women are beautiful to behold and to deny that beauty is in itself a sin. Fark all religion. I quote Ferris Beuller quoting John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles. I just believe in me."

Nah, that's just the Catholics. With protestants, it's usually the pastor having an affair with the church secretary or a deacon's wife. Well, unless their crusade is against gays, then you know they're going to get caught in a public restroom somewhere.

Bucky Katt: Sabyen91: PillsHere: It takes a very small man to blame his own deficiencies and lack of self control on women who are completely unaware and unconcerned with their existence.

I will never understand the argument that women are to blame for making a man have "impure" thoughts about them simply for the fact that they dare to be born women. It's like a poor person who robs someone's house and then claims that it was the home owners fault for daring to be richer than them. They simply couldn't control their urges to steal because that richer person had something they wanted. How absurd.

Religion in the United States is like dealing with an on-edge retarded person. You have to listen to whatever their mind comes up with, but you discount it because you know their condition. And when they get out of line, you have to talk down to them because you know they simply don't inhabit a sphere that normal, rational people do. Seriously, it's gotten to the point where you have to basically stop taking these people seriously as adults and just treat them like they have a closed-head injury that basically makes them unable to comprehend the real world.

Only difference? Mentally disabled people know joy, more or less. Religious folk are just bitter, nasty, cruel, and dishonest.
