I maybe should mention that I was baptized Protestant which was supposedly my moms religion vs my dads catholic

But by the time I was born as the oldest kid my dad was in his late 20s and had grown out of his altar boy super catholic upbringing.
For whatever reason my parents decided to baptize all three kids, at least they went Protestant not catholic but I can not recall any church visits in my childhood - not even Easter or Christmas or discussions about religion at the dinner table. I imagine my mom wanted a party to show off her babies and a baptism did that. Or they just did it because everybody did it.

I sure know that was why I got the confirmation at 14, that’s what my friends did (also you got super cool gifts) and honestly Protestantism in Germany in the 90s was pretty ok. No abstinence only preaching, no anti-gay preaching, they provided lots of the youth entertainment and spaces to hang out in the village. I drank my first beer on a weekend retreat with the church. (don’t assume crazy things 16 is legal drinking age here.)

I still never actually believed in god and ‘formally’ left the church in my early 20s - because guess what: the German government collects taxes for Christian churches. Which seemed so normal to me but is actually fucked up - but hey you can opt out easily do there’s that.

Awwwww you though Keith would possibly maybe say he might be wrong about something. You’re so cute.

That CTE study is clear. Good parents don't let their kids play football. Current NFL players came to the game without the benefit of those studies. Future NFL players will all be the result of child abuse.

That said, my 16 year old cousin is one of the best wide receivers in the country, and I watch football every weekend.

My own kids won't be involved with football in any way.

Let's be honest though, they've inherited their athletic talent from me, they'll be great programmers.

I said I’m fine still watching football knowing there’s rapists and murderers playing, Goofy.

By all accounts, there may be a couple of good men on any given football field. Those men do not deserve brain damage.

Of course they don't deserve it, but I would assume there's no way around it.

The mocumentary about Cycling, Tour De Pharmacy has Lance Armstrong in it in a "comical" role and it makes me feel the same way as putting Mel Gibson in a movie. The guy almost ruined the sport for fucks sake but lets make him look likable? Fuck off.



Armstrong is also doing podcasts now and did a daily one for the latest tour so he's still trying to earn money off of cycling too. Gross.

Sorry, Lanfear. I don't mean to pick on you. The misogynistic and pro-slavery quotes are Paul not Jesus, correct? Though Jesus certainly didn't speak out against slavery when he could have.

The "bring the sword" image is clearly metaphorical; Jesus portrayed himself a revolutionary of the soul cleaving the saved from the unsaved. Thusly tearing families apart. It's a common cult tactic (or potentially good advice to someone with a toxic family.)

He got physical with the money changers but generally opposed real physical violence when he had the chance.

Regarding the Canaanite woman; the Caananites and the Israelites hated each other at the time. The disciples were trying to shoo her away. Jesus did one of his little faith tests and then was cool. He was also unusual for chilling with the Samaritan woman at the well and similar. Super unracist in any plausible context.

I don't believe in the Nicene gospels or in the divine Jesus, but it's hard to read the gospels in the light of a superficial knowledge of a historical Jesus and the Roman occupation and not be impressed by this manic preacher.

Almost everyone in the Abarahamic religions is terrible. Moses was a dick and Mohammed deserved to be crucified but wasn't. Jesus was bonkers - which is part of the reason I like him so much - he had mood swings and delusions, but he was fundamentally good in a way that is rare in historical figures. He worked for free when normal healers charged.

Even Gautama didn't have Jesus's child-like humanity.
