A bad day to be a Christian

And people wonder why I don’t believe in God. It didn’t help this woman plummeting to her death on a fairground ride at a God-Botherer’s rock festival.

Add to this the Catholic church finally coughing up some money (a hell of a lot of it) to more than 500 people sexually abused by the clergy in the US.

God doesn’t love you. But Father Murphy will. Up the bumhole.

  1. Iain,

    A bit too far Mate with the speculations about God and blames.

    I am raised in Catolic family, but I am really Agnostic. Even though, it surprises me how easly people can blame Him/Her for a couple of bad events and be BLIND to the good ones happening around them all the time…

    Shame.

    Leave God alone please…

  2. I didn’t blame God at all, did I? I just said it’s a bad day to be related to anything religious… How on earth could I blame something I don’t believe in? I may as well say that the woman falling from the swing was all the fault of the Tooth Fairy and that priests bugger small boys because Harry Potter tells them to.

    The former story I just found rather ironic, especially given the title of the ride. The second I just find typically religious – people have been doing horrendous things throughout history in the name of religion, or hiding behind religion as an excuse.

    I won’t blame God for human behaviour as I don’t believe in a God. Humans hurt humans – it’s their decision to do so. I just hate the excuse of religion for them doing it – so in a way, anon, I do agree with you.

  3. I smite and I smite well.

    I bet Harry nobs Hermiony in the new novel. That’ll be the big thing. The whole graphic sex scene.

  4. Smited??? What do you mean? (I’m not familiar with that – thanks My God for this *good* thing in my life and not making me Catholic)

    And I bet Harry goes for his mate Ron’s sister. Still, there will be no sex there 🙁

    I bet it will be half way boring talking about nothing (as per other books) and then some pervert and quick action finishing rest of the people. This time it will be Hermione or Ron that dies.

  5. I made up “smited” but I think it’s a good word.

    Surf the net – I bet you can find Harry Potter porn somewhere. I hope Hermione dies. Just because I cant stand the girl who plays her in the films.

  6. Search for Harry Potter porn? Not interested in child pornography.

    Still don’t understand JanetyJanet comment (even if looked at all sorts of dictionaries)

    Sorry Iain. I can’t stand this bitterness…

  7. Dear me Gosia, easy peasy lemon squeezy to look up with our friend Google (or even just a common OED)

    – ’tis not a made up word at all as is revealed below…

    all clear now everyone???

  8. It ws a lot lclearer before you assaulted my comments page with a load of dictionary-related abbreviations!

    My head hurts now…

  9. So is my JanetyJanet…

    I’ve seen that crap before asking you on Webster. Simple sentence like ‘bitten/ attacked’ would do.

    So to be clear:

    I do not feel *smited*. It was an exchange of comments/answers to which all of us are entilted.

  10. JanettyJanet, this time I suggest to look at Google… Looks like old English to me 😉

    Oh dear – Mosh, no chicks fights here at all…

    But on the other hand, I am surprised, I thought you would be into this idea *VERY* much so. With a little bit of mud especially 😉

    Hey! I would expect you would be first to cheerleading such event! hehehe

  11. Mud’s dull. If you really want to get me going, I need three sexy lesbians waging war naked in a large paddling pool filled with jelly. Preferably raspberry.
