HindiDiscoMonster: Abox: FTA they could face a prison sentence as long as 10 years.

And like Job, retaining faith despite continued misery by God's hand.

I think you spelled Satan wrong...

/Fark, I am disappoint - I thought you knew your bibles... so you could bash it more effectively.


I think you didn't read your Bible.  Everything that happened to Job was by God's hand, so he could win an argument with Satan.

Science and religion are not opposites.

farkmedown: Bacontastesgood: rmatthewware: Most Christians aren't like this.  Most of us wouldn't let a child suffer.  ...... But don't blame Christianity because some of his followers are idiots.

Who are you talking to?  I realize fark is rich in athiests and agnostics, but almost all of us recognize that most Christians are reasonable people.  You are like 75% of the US population after all.  There would be huge problems if most of you never went to or took your kids to hospitals.

I was raised as a Christian Scientist.

I got better.


Thank God!

If they cut themselves with a knife while chopping veggies in the kitchen, do they just kneel down and pray too?  If their kid falls down and hits their head, do they not put ice on the bump? Do they go to the dentist? Would they seek out eyeglasses? What is the muther farking hell is wrong with people!?!?!?!?

I can only hope these bastards are put in jail long enough for the mother to be unable to have children.....and the father to get a free penectomy in prison.

uh no.... Satan was allowed to do anything too Job short of killing him... I think you need to brush up a bit... or were you trying to say God is guilty by proxy?

The Bible's too wordy. The 10 Commandments are a load of shiat. You don't need all these things. The Bible should be one sheet of paper, and on that sheet of paper it should say: 'Try not to be a coont.'

That term says it all. These children are not born to be loved and nurtured- they're created to be weapons in some deluded fairy tale battle of 'good' versus 'evil'.

Quite the contrary, religion was a main driving factor of science through the renaissance. It is more recent history that has shown a complete reverse of that.

There are few times when Farkers embarrass me. This is one of them.

God forbid any of you ever have to live through something of this nature. I hope you never have to answer the phone and hear your inconsolably weeping wife on the other end of the line as she mutters the only words she is able to muster "they cant find a heartbeat".

This wasn't meant to bash, just to predict their reaction to being convicted.  They will think the deaths of their kids and their prison sentence is all part of God's glorious plan. But thanks for the correction.
 
2013-04-23 09:27:24 PM
If God wills it, and God is infallible, then why did He create so many farking hospitals, doctors, nurses, and medicines? Did you also pray for food to be delivered by God, or did you get a job? When your car was broken, did you pray or find a mechanic? Fark, you child murderers, it's a real pity that hell doesn't exist, cause you belong there.

You might have a point but you obviously DNRTA because this isn't some rare cancer, these deaths were bacterial pneumonia and the second hasn't been determined, but there was trouble breathing and diarrhea before the death.  They didn't even take the babies to the doctor for a farking opinion.

LazerFish: Being religious is one thing, but being willfully ignorant is... pretty much the same thing.


In relation to TFA, that is drastically unfair. It can be argued that being religious is being 'willfully ignorant', but the vast majority of religious folks seek and follow the same medical advice as non-religious folks.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with what you said, but I think you should make your point independent of the characteristic of those who seek medical treatment.

I am completely fed up with your insane, stupid p, illogical belief in an imaginary being putting REAL people in harms way. This bullshiat, perfectly legal. Weed? No. Two gay men want to get married? No. Seriously. LETS STOP TOLERATING this goat rodeo. Illiterate sheep farmers in the desert during the Stone Age have not a farking clue about how to live life in 2013.
 
2013-04-23 09:34:17 PM
Ok, I'm fine with people being religious. But I'm pretty sure during the times I've been dragged to church, I've heard things like, "God helps those who help themselves." Like... I dunno... maybe taking a kid to a doctor, and THEN praying for the doctor to be able to do his job well.

I guess that's just too much logic for some people. Either that, or I was dragged to some pretty progressive sermons.

Participation is consent. Job's suffering was at God's hand. If I beat a child while my best fiend stands by and watches, would you split hairs as to responsibility?

I have several friends who both don't believe in evolution, but will gladly accept the revolutions of modern science/medicine that have come from evolution.  At least they were committed to their beliefs. Good for them for sticking to their beliefs.  Hope they can sleep at night.

Here you go (it's mentioned near the end). It's pretty well known that Aldrin celebrated communion. NASA didn't broadcast it because of an ongoing lawsuit at the time.

You must have a big ass to hold those ridiculously overblown numbers.  Even without insurance, a visit to a clinic and some antibiotics (assuming the bacterial pneumonia could have been treated this way) would be a 3 figure number and probably one closer to 2 figures than 4 figures.
