Smackledorfer: 8 years in school and you know more about the church than most lower priests?


I once made the mistake of asking a priest (my 11th grade theology teacher) a "what if..." question.

I got detention.  For being "bold"
That was my 'crime", I was bold.  Because I asked a "what if..." that went against 'faith'

What it really said to me was the priest didn't have an answer.

Scourging and crucifying innocent people is bad, and those who do it should feel bad....

BullBearMS: buntz: Went to Catholic school for 13 years and I still don't understand why the symbol of Christianity is the method by which their savior was killed?

No disrespect intended, but I sincerely don't get it.  Why is the cross, Jesus' electric chair, or firing squad, or gas chamber, or lethal injection, the symbol of holiness?

(I also don't understand why people place memorials on the side of the highway where loved ones were killed.  I would prefer a memorial someplace that I "lived", something I was known for, something I enjoyed!  A celebration of my life.  Not a reminder of my death!)

Watch this video and part two and prepare to be kind of amazed.

Mugato: MadMattressMack: It's supposed the represent the ultimate sacrifice that God made. To send his own son to death at the hand of man to open the gates of heaven.

I still don't get that. Why does anyone have to die at all? I have to admit that I don't understand even the basic tenant of Christianity. What's really disconcerting is that no preacher has been able to explain it either.


Ancient folks seemed to have had a hardon for blood sacrifice, as if killing a gods creations somehow pleased said god, instead of pissing them off that you were wrecking their stuff.

The idea that God had to sacrifice himself to himself to change the rules he made himself is such a bizarre concept to me.

mr_a: The bar on the Orthodox cross is at an angle because when Christ died, he kicked it.


He was friggin' Jesus.  He was always kickin' it.
