Don't stop [#1488]
« on: June 15, 2009, 07:40:18 PM »
I am posting your videos on my Facebook page and I think it's getting  
people to think.

I am a 43 year old, single father of two and the last thing I want is  
for my kids to believe in this ridiculous thing called Religion. I  
never know how damaging and horrible the Christian religion was. I was  
a Christian for many years and once you see how ridiculous religion  
is...well all I can say is that I am a bit embarrassed. Down right,  
humiliated that I didn't go with my "gut" feelings I had every time I  
read my bible.

God never talked back to me, I never felt his presence and I felt  
silly praying in groups with other adults.

Keep up the good work, the way you making your videos is great, they  
are not offensive, you don't yell and scream and you obviously have an  
education. So, know that you have helped me, and in turn I am posting  
the videos and hopefully helping others through Facebook. :-)

Take care,

I always found praying in big groups to be silly, too, especially since Jesus, when he prayed, he did it alone. And, since Christians revere Jesus so much, you'd think that they'd pray alone, too.

Last time I 'prayed' was in a prayer circle(a  horrible event happened in my city, and I was a few blocked from is, and there was a pray circle at my school the next day and a friend of mine dragged me into it. Really, I didn't pray at all), it was hard holding in my laughter.

43 years of life has made you the wiser.

I want you to know, when it comes to believing in god- I really tried. I really really tried. I tried to believe that there is a god who created each one of us in his own image and likeness, loves us very much and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize...something is fucked up.-George Carlin

When I was still delusional and prayer I did it alone (if at all).  Praying in groups made me feel weird.  When this national day of prayer came around and the meet me at the pole thing I really felt uncomfortable.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
