Of all the religions out there one religion that's always filled me with exasperation was the Born Again Christian belief system.
The last church I ever went to was a born again one. the people were nice enough but had some really bonkers beliefs. Some of which I think were just ways to make themselves feel special. Like speaking in tongues.....they were making it up.
To make matters worse, the street preachers i see and hear here in Liverpool always tend to be crack pot, loud mouths, attention seeking and just plain annoying.
Not just Liverpool, mate.
First man is standing outside a closed up BHS store in town. He's carrying a giant wooden cross, wearing sweatpants, a coat that's 2 sizes to big for him and he's shouting down a microphone
Now that would have been an hilarious photo.
The atheists are allowed to preach!
Scratch that last comment....I meant video.
Him: So you see. How do you know whats moral?
Oh, that boring old chestnut!
Him: Think about it. Without Jesus your life has no meaning. What keeps you from just killing yourself?
Him: But then you die.
Him: And then what?
Me: And then im dead.
He needs to read Schopenhauer. Always makes me smirk at least.
Him: We cant always understand perfect justice. But a righteous God cant allow sin to go unpunished.
I just threw my breakfast up. what a walley.
We had a nice little chat...
and he was surprised at how well i actually knew the bible and could recite the scriptures back to him as he was saying them to me from memory.
Don't tell him you used to be a Jobo.....he might join them.
I'm still an atheist. Still happy. But I'm glad that there is at least 1 Born Again preacher in town that isn't shouting at me telling me I'm going to burn in hell.
Let's hope he never does.
I enjoyed reading about this, Paley. Perhaps I miss those a$$emb£y experiences...wink wink.
Lettice snow if you get any more 'experiences(tm)'. You seem more rational than I'd be with them than I'd care to be.
thanks for posting it, whack.
