Yesterday, my seven year old son, who goes to catholic school, was asked what he would be giving up for Lent. He said, "video games". Then he came home and figured out that he just committed to 40 days without his favorite pastime. Right now, he's lawyering up for an appeal. He's gonna renegotiate with "chocolate", but is ready to sacrifice sweets altogether, should jesus and father adams push back on the issue.

I'm not even remotely Catholic, but I may still give up drinking "for Lent."  Really, it's just more of a "hey, why not stop boozing it up for 40 days" sort of thing.  I'm not worried that there's a God who's going to like me better for doing so, but I expect my liver will.

shamalamadingdong: my seven year old son, who goes to catholic school, was asked what he would be giving up for Lent. He said, "video games". Then he came home and figured out that he just committed to 40 days without his favorite pastime. Right now, he's lawyering up for an appeal. He's gonna renegotiate with "chocolate", but is ready to sacrifice sweets altogether, should jesus and father adams push back on the issue.

My belief is that Lent should have nothing to do with self-improvement. It should be plain, dumb sacrifice. In practice though, I usually don't do anything. This year, defying both my belief and practice, I am trying to not buy food*. This will benefit me by cleaning out my kitchen and saving me some money. The sacrifice is that I will be eating some grim stuff.
*for instance, I have a bunch of beans and some canned tomatoes, so I'll buy meat so I can make chili. I'll need some butter and milk and eggs in order to make things with other scraps I have lying around.

lennavan: Certainly a lot less wars fought, which means resources we could allocate elsewhere.  Like curing cancer and whatnot.


But a lot of our scientific progress was driven by war.  Hell, you could attribute our space program to the Cold War.  Yeah, we would have gotten around to it eventually, but the drive to be "the best" made it happen sooner.

Without strife, we would be complacent and uninterested.  Competition breeds creativity, especially when your life is on the line.

I don't inhale all these things all the time but once or twice a week so I thought giving them all up together would make Jeebus happy.

I do too, but I don't think the idea of giving up a bad habit for 40 days is necessarily a bad one.  I'm going to quit drinking during Lent because it'll be good for me and good for my bank account, not because I'm worried about a god.  It could be any 40 days, really, but Lent is how I got the idea, so that's what I'll do.

ParagonComplex: I'm giving up trying to figure out how Catholics can call themselves believers in God when they worship a False Idol (the Pope), and support a church ran by pedophiles covering up for other pedophiles.


Catholics don't "worship" the Pope.  He's the leader of the church, but is a man, not a God.  Catholics only worship God (father, son, holy spirit) and honor Mary, the martyrs and saints.  The pedophile scandals are a stain on the church, no way to deny that and while it's a very small percentage of priests, if it were only one it would be terrible.  I think the church will have to eventually realize that priests should be allowed to marry and <gasp> women priests should be permitted as well.  There are many great priests and sisters out there but a very small majority have damaged the vocation's reputation.

revman64: I think the church will have to eventually realize that priests should be allowed to marry and <gasp> women priests should be permitted as well.



that was about the prime reason my wife left the catholic church.  she's what you'd call a "feminist" (although not the batshiat crazy kind) but she always had an issue with that.  and over the years she basically fell out of love with being a catholic for several reasons, church shopped for a while, tried a bunch of different shiat (well, ok, variants of christianity, never tried Judaism or eastern religions) and is now lutheran.  and they let priests marry and have female priests/ pastors, whatever.

but if you were to ask her what one thing tipped the scales, she'd say that.

/and the handling of the pedophile scandal was also a big one, but the women priest far predated that.  but that was much worse but she didn't hang her hat on that one.

Yeah, people really hate self introspection, candidly admitting their faults, feeling some want in their lives, and trying to be a better person- even if it is for only 40 days a year.

Lutherans and Protestants in general believe in "by faith alone" ( one of Luther's tenants). It must be nice to not actually have to do anything (good works). I see the appeal

ok farkstick, i'll take the bait, yes, we do nothing but pray and think about good works.  that's ALL we do.  i guess giving up chocolate for 40 days so very outweighs all the other shiat we do year round and not just because of some arbitrary date determined by what phase the moon will be in in Easter.

Nah, you aren't the only non-Catholic--I'm pretty much an apatheist, and even when young had to pretty much have the general concept of Lent explained to me by Catholic friends (in general, Baptist and Methodist-derived groups don't do Lent, and "name it and claim it" cults pretty much not only don't do Lent but consider the idea of fasting for 40 days a method of using God as a pyramid scheme rather than commisserating with the suffering of Christ).

I also tend to think moderate Islam tends to get it more honest in the regards of "fasting and suffering to sympathise with others"--especially in Malaysia, there's a concept of essentially giving up something you really like for Ramadhan much like Catholics give up something they like for Lent--instead of getting in touch with the "suffering of Christ", though, it's expanded to remind others of the suffering of the poor in general and at sundown they pretty much invite anyone off the street to a huge block party with lots of food that lasts until sun-up :D.  (And yes, some of the stuff that people give up for Ramadhan is almost as lulztastic as what folks give up for Lent; there's the whole "giving up smoking"/"giving up excess" usuals, but I did know someone who gave up yaoi doujinshi for Ramadhan :D)

I heard some people discussing this very topic this morning, and then it came up that only one of them is actually Catholic and the other two started going on about how it's still a good thing to observe Lent because you're giving something up to challenge yourself to be better (they were talking about giving up hard liquor, porn, stuff like that).

And I agree it is a good thing to challenge yourself and if there's something in your life you know you should quit, doing so is certainly a positive change. But... I don't need religion to do that. I don't need a church telling me when to do that. I've already given up drinking (during the week) and fast food, on my own, for the sake of no one else but me and my health. Some people need religion to tell them how to act, to define their moral compass for them and give them a sense of "purpose", but for those of us that don't the whole thing seems pretty silly.

Now I need to remind my (lapsed) Catholic boyfriend about Lent, because he never remembers. He just needs to have a convincing lie ready for when his mom asks about it.

Red meat, pork and french fries. I was going to give up all meat, but it's just impractical so I traded french fries for poultry. One of my odd dietary quirks is that I don't eat anything that looks like infection, so salad dressing is out making it true rabbit food and difficult to pass off as a business lunch. Pancakes still ok!

I am not Catholic but find it an interesting spiritual exercise.

revman64: ParagonComplex: I'm giving up trying to figure out how Catholics can call themselves believers in God when they worship a False Idol (the Pope), and support a church ran by pedophiles covering up for other pedophiles.

Catholics don't "worship" the Pope.  He's the leader of the church, but is a man, not a God.  Catholics only worship God (father, son, holy spirit) and honor Mary, the martyrs and saints.  The pedophile scandals are a stain on the church, no way to deny that and while it's a very small percentage of priests, if it were only one it would be terrible.  I think the church will have to eventually realize that priests should be allowed to marry and <gasp> women priests should be permitted as well.  There are many great priests and sisters out there but a very small majority have damaged the vocation's reputation.


Seems to me that they worship a False Idol. To say that one person is closer to God than anyone else is atrocious. As for a very small percentage? You must be kidding me. I wouldn't be as bold as to say it is the vast majority, but the percentage is certainly not "very small". The only "very small" are the children that are preyed upon. I also don't dig the whole confessional thing. I confess my sins directly to God. I don't need a middle man. The number of atheists that used to be Catholics is pretty astonishing. Makes one wonder. The whole thing is bizarre. Cannibalizing Jesus, confessing through a middle man, the False Idol aspect, and the Mary aspect as well. Whatever floats your boat.

Certainly a lot less wars fought, which means resources we could allocate elsewhere.  Like curing cancer and whatnot.

I don't drink soda and I am already down to eating red meat once a week (usually turns into once a month) so I am really running out of those *cut out this one thing and you'll lose weight*. Not Catholic, but I was thinking I should give up cream/milk and sugar in my coffee. I think it is probably 100 calories/day so that would be 4000 calories over lent and I will lose a lb! Plus I will start liking black coffee.

Last year I gave up complaining which was nice because once when a thought like 'this sucks' comes into your head you don't have the option to express it so you just have to move on.  Anyway since I'm an athiest I just like something cute to give up that will make me better. If I was a Catholic I would really try to suffer to feel Jesus' pain and shiat. It seems so petty to me when Catholics give up soda so that they can sympathize with Jesus being abandoned, crucified, and dying. If I were a real Catholic I would maybe give up my Saturdays to volunteer or not give up any petty/earthly thing and just try to be a better Christian.

Dear Jerk: My belief is that Lent should have nothing to do with self-improvement. It should be plain, dumb sacrifice. In practice though, I usually don't do anything. This year, defying both my belief and practice, I am trying to not buy food*. This will benefit me by cleaning out my kitchen and saving me some money. The sacrifice is that I will be eating some grim stuff.
*for instance, I have a bunch of beans and some canned tomatoes, so I'll buy meat so I can make chili. I'll need some butter and milk and eggs in order to make things with other scraps I have lying around.


That is awesome- I try to see how long I can go cleaning out my cupboard without buying food. It is amazing how far just flour can go...
