    I queried and read chapter 5 in its entirety.

    Methinks Timothy was inebriated when “he” wrote this chapter as pretty much the whole thing was incoherent, bullshit word salad.

    Clearly, anyone who tells you they’re a “bible believing xtrian” has never actually read the bible.

    Did you really read it Zotz? If so, you might have noticed it was written to Timothy, not by Timothy. Either way, Timmy could have been shit-faced..

    The Bible thumpers tell us it was written by Paul, but that’s been pretty well discredited too.

    Regardless, the verse is still good advice.

    When I was a young bunny we always looked forward to Communion Sunday because it was the only time kids got to drink. Except I always suspected the pastor was slipping us grape juice because I never got a buzz in Church.

    Happy Easter everyone.

    Roger:

    I’m surprised you didn’t pay a bit more attention during catechism or you would have learned that the wine had been trans-substantiated into the “blood of Christ” and therefore incapable of giving you any other buzz than the blissful knowledge you had been once again put right with the Lord, assuming of course that you had been properly confessed the prior evening.

    At what point did you realize the whole thing was a rather elaborate fraud, played out by your willing parents, the laity, and the clergy to keep the collection plate full?

    @5: I just read chapter 5, then went back and read 1-6 after I posted.

    I didn’t pick up on that it was to Timothy, so thanks.

    Also noted the “slaves must honor their masters”, and mysogynistic passages which goes with Paul’s (or whoever’s) historical rep so that should have been a clue.

    Regardless of the author, it read as disconnected nonsense.

    Anyone who says they believe this stuff is inerrant has obviously not read it closely.

    Hey, my pleasure Zotz. Thought you would want to know.

    I fully agree with your comment that the Bible Thumpers rarely read more than the few passages their pastors point out in the sermon each Sunday. Then they assume everyone else has read even less, so that makes them the expert. Especially since their pastor also told them what those passages meant.

    Too bad Puddy doesn’t ever get beyond the weekly order of worship in his Bible studies. I think he would come to the same conclusion you have; that it’s just a lot of nonsense.

    When I found myself in a fucking foxhole in Vietnam and couldn’t think of anything I’d done to piss off God that much.

    14.323 Trillion and a 1.4 to 1.7 billion dollar deficit.

    All day long the news channels are discussing this massive debt, while Obama and the democraps just ignore it. Gold and Silver are flying ahead dollars per week, because of a failing dollar.

    And Gas, do I have to tell you how asleep Obama is on that one.

    Please please reelect him for four more. I’m now investing like George Soro’s and making piles on the falling dollar and rising oil and commodities.

    Keep it up and we’ll soon surpass Greece in world attention do to financial failure.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @19 Obama sets gasoline prices? Since when? And you’ve obviously forgotten that it was BUSH and the REPUBLICANS who turned surpluses into deficits and ran the economy into the ground. Oh, and btw moron, when you INCREASE spending and REDUCE revenues (by giving tax cuts to people who don’t need them), as BUSH and the REPUBLICANS did, the usual result is DEFICITS.

  12. 21

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Don’t worry the Wall Street power brokers who manipulate oil prices will make sure gas is cheap by Election Day so Obama gets re-elected — he’s their boy.

    Wisconsin Update

    The state accountability board begins a recount today of a disputed state supreme court election in which a highly partisan county election supervisor with a checkered past and a record of refusing to follow state election procedure guidelines miraculously “found” 14,000 more ballots on a computer to which only she had access after her former boss, the (hold your nose) Republican candidate, lost at the polls.

    Meanwhile, supporters of public workers seeking to oust eight (hold your nose) Republican state senators have obtained signatures and filed recall petitions against FIVE of them. They only need to flip three of those seats to give Democrats control of the state senate.

  14. 23

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    I wonder if (hold your nose) Gov. Walker’s union-stripping bill is an unfair labor practice under federal law? After all, the state is the employer, and an employer unilaterally deciding that it’s not going to recognize the union or bargain with union members anymore seems like an unfair labor practice. Put it this way, it sure as hell doesn’t seem fair! Additionally, this bill takes away the workers’ right to vote on whether they want a union — they voted that they did want a union, and the bill nullifies that vote. I don’t see how you can say this bill doesn’t violate federal labor laws.

    Roger Rabbit: Which are you? You claim to believe in God and then you write an atheistic piece at #8 and on Easter.

    You volunteered for Vietnam. Don’t blame that on God! That was your foolishness.

    Signed,

    Apology at 8 Sorry: Roger Rabbit ranted an atheistic slur at 14.

    Roger volunteered to go to Vietnam! Don’t blame God for your foolishness!

    Signed,

    Had a happy Easter.

    Thank and Praise God

    Many blessings

    @25 Of course there’s a God. All I want is an answer to why She allowed Vietnam to happen.

    I figured you Commie Jews couldn’t let Easter go without some Christian-hating smartass remarks.

    I hope we all realize that religion is nothing to fight over. All relgions are valid and represent different paths to the same “place.” How you define the path and “place” is up to you.

    The Rabbit isn’t Jewish. If Roger Rabbit was Jewish, he would be a Kosher Rabbit. Yum. Kosher Bunny, yummy.

    Roger is a Christian Rabbit who should thank God for all his many blessings, including lots of fresh vegetables, carrots and a pretty park north of downtown Seattle.

    Politically Incorrect spews:

    @29,

    You should capitalize “Libertarian” and “Unitarian,” dipshit.

    I take it you would prefer lots of religious conflict and death from religious entanglements.

    As I’ve said before – All religions are valid and all religions are packs of lies. It doesn’t mater what we beleive. That’s because “belief” ain’t “fact!”
