Any holiday reapproiated for the Christian "better" ... oh wait, guess I'm only left with nationalist holidays.

I'd say the same, but I can't give up what I never had.

I just started taking Lexapro.  As I discovered last night, apparently I am giving up the ability to have an orgasm.

Nothing because, as an atheist, I consider the whole concept to be utter bollocks.

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.

Lent is really 46 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter, Sundays don't count.

Being a lazy fat-ass. Last week, I finally committed to a regular exercise routine, and I'm working on my diet again - basically, knock off the snacks and second helpings, since my diet's not bad otherwise.

(Except for this Saturday. That's our annual St. Valentine's Day Dessert Massacre, so I'm gonna load up on homemake cake and cookies and cheesecake and other goodies.)

Sex.  And since I'm married this should be easy.
 
2013-02-13 05:16:15 PM  
I've given up on institutionalized religion - and started this observance about 2 months ago. I still have my basic beliefs - but am done with 'this church' vs 'this church' and loathe labels and the hypocrisy was just ridiculously cringe worthy (at least at the 'country club with a steeple' down the road is concerned.)

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.

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
