"Attending church is about worship and learning to be followers of Jesus Christ," LDS spokesman Scott Trotter said Tuesday in a statement. "


He has a point.

Jesus never wore pants.

Evidence needed.

Who would worship any Deity that actually cared about what you wore? Silly superstitions are, well, silly.

fickenchucker: I say they should really show them who's boss and go to church with no clothing at all.

The world needs more exposed boobies.


You joke, but I've been to a ward in Polynesia. Tits come out after the sacrament is over for breastfeeding.

angryjd: Mock26: furterfan: Brian Ryanberger: I see its time to make fun of Christians again on the internet.

this is Mormons, not christians.



Mormons are christians.

The nicene creed defines what Christianity is, and it acknowledges the virgin birth as a prerequisite. To the best of my knowledge, all of the other churches that self identify as Christian do as well. Mormons do not.

Yes, there are actual rules for these things. You don't become a Christian by just saying you are a Christian.


Additionally, the only thing that keeps Mormons, (And I believe the Quakers), out of the Nicene creed is the idea of the Son proceeding from the Father. Which a farking stupid distinction. If you asked most non-theologically trained Christians on what the fark the Trinity is, or how "And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds (æons), Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father;" works, you're going to get a blank farking stare.

The idea of the Arian heresy is a response to pantheism and plurality of gods that the Catholic church had to respond to early in history. Christ cannot be seperate from the Father because that would make Two Gods. Which is right out of the question. So instead they came up with this in-between notion of 'One in substance, but begotten'. Mormons and a few others essentially said Fark it, Here's God. Here's Christ. God the Father gives Christ power of Attorney regarding the earth, which means he's also God. Whatever. I'm going to go watch football.

I don't go to church but back when the family did, they were Quaker. I like the way the Quakers did things, I like the attitude. All Christian denominations should strive to be more Quaker. Quiet service until someone is moved to speak. No pressure. No huge rules. Everyone is equal. No fire and brimstone and none of that can't wear pants nonsense. Quaker is the way to go.

Brian Ryanberger: Mock26: Really? You are going to use the Ray Comfort/Kirk Cameron banana argument? If you are going to troll, then please do a better job of it. Try to come up with something better.


There's a video which explains it a lot better than I can you should check this out

Oh yeah, and just for fun, if the banana proves god is real because it the perfect fit for the human hand then who the f*ck was the pineapple created for?

You know, men wearing pants and women wearing skirts is strange because you'd think men would need more free room and air circulation for the junk so they'd have dibs on the skirt.

Pants are just a conspiracy to lower sperm count and constrict male genitals. Unless you compromise with Hammer pants.

Brian Ryanberger: El Pachuco: Mock26: Please tell us why you are a christian, and not for example a hindu? Surely you must have some evidence that proves your god to be real and all others to be false?

He just got lucky and was born into the one true church, instead of that other place in his home town two blocks over who are total charlatans.

OK I have had it with you people because you have disrespected me and disrespected God even after I told you he was God so you knew who you were talking about and so does he. If you want to spend 78,000 years on fire getting sodomized by a four penis satan helper I guess there is no way for me to stop you.


And here comes the righteous indignation followed the by "I'm taking my toys and going home" defense. Your post proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are A) Not a christian and are just trolling, B) You are a christian but your faith is so frail and weak that you are afraid to question it, or C) You are uneducated and cannot rationally defend your faith. I am guessing "A".

Brian Ryanberger: Mock26: Brian Ryanberger: Mock26: Brian Ryanberger: I see its time to make fun of Christians again on the internet. I'm so glad I didn't take the opportunity to miss it because it is not like it never happens. Someday when you need God and you call out to him maybe he remembers this thread and does not help you but probably he will forgive you and help you anyways because he is a God of Love and Forgiveness which is a brutal lesson all heathens and other people who tease his Word had better learn and learn quick or else it only gets worse from here on out.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I love it when christians use the "call out to god" argument! I have been in several near death situations (primary chute malfunction while skydiving, seeing a car run a red light and hit me while I was rollerblading through an intersection, having a loaded gun pointed at me, nearly stepping on a rattlesnake while rappelling), and guess what? Not once have I ever cried out to your supposed god. I do not believe in this supposed god of your superstition, so why do you assume that I would ever call out to it?

As for "his word," got any actual proof that this god of yours is real? And I mean real proof, as in something that can be verified, and not all that silly "the bible says so" or "only a god could create the world" nonsense.


You say you've been there at deaths door and you didn't call out for God but I say you haven't really been there yet if you only had one parachute fail because maybe next time they both fail and what then? You will only know then but God has always known you.

/bsbd

If both chutes were to fail, I would probably call out the names of my cats, because unlike this supposed god of your particular mythology, I know with absolute certainty that my cats are real.

Now, let me ask you something, how do you know that this supposed god that you worship is real? In other words, why are you a christian? Do you have proof? Or is it simply because you were told to believe in it as a small child? Please tell us why you are a christian, and not for example a hindu? Surely you must have some evidence that proves your god to be real and all others to be false?


I know it in my heart and you can't look into my heart without cutting it out and that is murder so I guess there is no way for me to show you and you just have to come to Jesus on your own which makes it all even more perfect and perfection is God so it sort of proves it yet again. Of course you can feel free to shun Jesus even after being confronted with all of the evidence and reject your Maker but that just seems silly since the price is eternity.


What evidence? Neither you nor anyone else has ever been able to show any real evidence that this supposed god of the christian myth is real. But, since you claim that there is evidence then how about sharing it with us? You are, after all, commanded by your "son of god" to spread the word, right? So enlighten us with this evidence that you claim exists.

As for knowing in your heart, what about the millions of Hindus who also know in their heart that their Gods and Goddesses are real? What about the Muslims who know in their heart that their faith is the one true faith? What about the tribal practitioners who know in their hearts that their Gods are real? What about just about everyone of every religion both current and dead that have known in their hearts that their God, Gods and/or Goddesses were real? Do you really think that an ancient Viking warrior who worshipped Odin did not know in his heart that Odin was real? What about an ancient Greek who worshipped Dionysus? Or an Egyptian who worshiped Isis? If the faithful of all religions "know in their hearts" that they are correct then how do you know who is right and who is wrong? Surely there must be something that proves you to be correct and all those others to be wrong, right? I mean, you would not simply be following along because you were raised to do so, right?

When "pants or no pants" is a major philosophical tenet of your current belief system, you either need to:

A: Let go of the kiddie pool and explore the deep end of human intellect and experience

B: Have another beer, but keep your pants on. You'll wind up in a Fark headline, son.
