IntertubeUser: More evidence that religion is child abuse. This is perhaps the most heinous of examples. But parents who teach their children that the earth is 6,000 years old, God hates them queers, etc. are other examples. But even something as innocuous as faith being a legitimate substitute for evidence or teaching kids to believe in supernatural causes (the basis of religion) leaves impressionable young minds handicapped in the real world.Religion IS child abuse.
jayhawk88: Seven other kids. I want to go beat these people with a lead pipe. In the Conservatory.We'll just sterilize them. I got an arc welder in the garage doing nothing.
sithon: And these are the people breeding in great numbers .

ArcadianRefugee: sithon: And these are the people breeding in great numbers .Well, I suppose they can stand to lose a few now and then, no?
hawcian: 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.

jst3p: /Free Quinn is my fav
SpikeStrip: got run over by a crappy purple scion
Bonobo62: Idiots. Laughter is the best medicine. Not prayer. Laughter. Prayer is only the third-best medicine.
King Something: A stampede of wild elephants?In their living room?Between 3:55 and 4:00 PM?On the Fourth of July?During a hail storm?/and one baby zebra
HindiDiscoMonster: Bonobo62: Idiots. Laughter is the best medicine. Not prayer. Laughter. Prayer is only the third-best medicine.just think how healthy clowns must be...
Princess Ryans Knickers: Prayer.. as effective as homeowners with guns in keeping crime down.

jst3p: 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".
trickymoo: There's a guy in my office who is one of these religious nutbags. No modern medicine, just prayer. He was out once for 2 weeks with some hard cold. And he's got three kids in elementary school, so god knows what kinda sick they are bringing home with them. I think he's insane.The parents here should be prosecuted for longer than 10 years. Like maybe 50. This goes up there with promoting that vaccinations will make your kids autistic.fark em
netgamer7k: When God gives you a life preserver,Take it./that's all I have to say
djkutch: I think that's needs to be qualified. Religion itself is not the problem. It's an idea. You can't get rid of ideas. We were once going to bomb Communism out of existence in Vietnam. That was a stated goal. How did that work out?
Mambo Bananapatch: If I do it sure as hell won't be because we didn't do everything possible to save our child. I have very little sympathy for morons who sit around a dying child praying instead of picking up the goddamn cell phone and calling 911.
PanicMan: Bees? Was it bees? I bet it was bees.
Mock26: netgamer7k: When God gives you a life preserver,Take it./that's all I have to sayI wonder what a devout christian would do if that God was Vishnu?
plavacek: A man was in his three-story house one day when a flood started. After a bit, a police car came by and the policemen asked him to evacuate with them so that he would be saved. He said, "No thanks - I will pray and God will save me."The water kept coming up, and the man went upstairs and leaned out his window. A fire department boat came by, and the fireman asked him to get in so that he would be saved. Again, the man said, "No thanks - I will pray and God will save me."The water kept coming, and the man was forced up to his roof. A Coast Guard helicopter came by, and a rescue swimmer came down to offer the man a hand up. But the man waved the swimmer off, and he shouted up as loud as he could "I will pray and God will save me!"The house was quickly washed away, and the man drowned.At Judgement, the man asked God why God had not saved him, and God replied "I sent a car, a boat, and a helicopter - what more did you want?"This parable is told a lot in Catholic churches - I've heard it dozens of times. It's a shame these wackjobs hadn't. If God is good and God is everywhere, then God is in the doctors and the hospitals and the four bucks worth of generic antibiotics that would have saved your son's life, you monsters.

TheOtherMisterP: RedWineBuzz: Science flies people to the moon. Religion flies people into buildings.And what's the first thing Buzz Aldrin did when he got to the moon? He celebrated Communion.Science and religion are not opposites.
theknuckler_33: 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!?!?!?!?
