Religion In The News / Starting a religion

This sort of thing just shouldn't be allowed to happen... When it comes to minors I think sound medical advice trumps uninformed parents anytime.

Quote
Under a NSW government's 2013 law and the Victorian government's proposed law due to start next year, children who are not fully immunized cannot enrol in childcare.

Quote
"We have decided to create a 'religion', so, amongst other things, we can claim 'religious exemption', if the need ever arises, for ourselves and our children," the group said in a December 2007 newsletter, adding that it costs $25 to join.

Where do we draw the line? "It's against my religion to wash/feed/clothe my children"?

But then, this isn't just about children missing out on standard, appropriate medical care, it's also about the children who will have to go to school with unimmunised children. Have people forgotten what rubella looks like ffs??

And if it says slavery, it means slavery.

And if it says kill unruly children or people who have sex the wrong way, or who work on the sabbath, it means kill them.

And if it says pi=3, or that there was light before the sun, or that true believers can drink poison, or that snakes can talk...... &)
C'mon,Nogods ,we know that the Christians abandoned the rules they dislike when they invented Jesus(yes invented),in the same manner that Mormons did (abandoned Christian rules)when John Smith invented his religion

^^* Here's what honestly think about personalities like OCG's.

We're the minority (we are) so is the 1 % not that I advocate for it.

We have no relevance on his reality yet the young will and do control everything.

We haven't cured cancer yet!?

It's on our list after feeding the starving and dying from it.....


These are old minds who make up shit to justify it.

This same old guy would rather refute the reason I used the word "shit" than the actual bigger phenomenon of humanity.  Holy shit, people are dying and starving...

....you want me to dissect my language to make you feel better because what you believe doesn't do what all of us reasonable would do if given the "power".


....ohm and paint us evil like Frank and other religious even though our priorities are right but realities don't match the majority.


Until reality matches majority...... Well...


Also, I mentioned my mom... Which is truth. But did you see how such weird assumptions he made!? It's almost as he's expecting the ordinary than the extraordinary. Pathetic.....

When is god coming back again!? OCG and others would bumping into each other like hungry hippos trying to figure out there non-logic.

When I wrote those verses about eating babies, I wasn't thinking human babies at all. You see, Jeremiah was a bullfrog. Was a good friend of mine. And amphibians are known to cannibalize their young, as well as regenerate limbs. Yea verily, when the night doth grow coldeth, thou dost sleepeth with three dogs. Stop reading more into this than there is. Joy to the world.

Signed, god.

OCG will make excuses for his god but remain absolutely rigid. Weird philosophy when presented with more items to digest but yet still remain agile with BS to others like myself; hopefully the young in class will see past this and may cure cancer.

OCG, how much does religion matter to you?

Scale of 1 to 100.

Interesting question.  On a scale of 1 to 100, I think religion matters to me at around 85 to 90. 

As always,

OldChurchGuy
Okay. Now how much does your family mean to you?

100

I have a feeling I am being set up for a "gotcha!" moment.

Warily,

OldChurchGuy
You got me!

"Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." Matthew 10:37.

Why would you not put God and religion at 100? It clearly says^. :)

Because I am not now nor have I ever claimed to be the perfect Christian.  :)

Sincerely,

OldChurchGuy

All theists are whiners who think they are singled out for special discrimination and persecution.

All theists who think they are singled out for special discrimination and persecution, are whiners.
