if you have something to say, just say it. Dont expect a long and glorious thread on the subject today.
That's exactly what I did. "Glorious thread"? You think I'm looking for glory? I'm expressing myself and my loathing for religion in a forum that should understand the kind of emotion I'm feeling. If you can't respect that, then fine, it's you who's "dishonored" yourself.
As far as the timing........The pope is not a topic of conversation unless he's dying. There is no better time than the present to talk about him. I don't think anyone here knows him personally or has even had him as a pen pal. If I were standing in front of the Pope's son or daughter I would keep my mouth shut. We are having discussions about all kinds of religious leaders, political leaders, celebrities etc. I never said anything that wasn't at least what I thought to be the truth. I didn't crack jokes. I didn't even make fun of the people who actually believe that what he says is divine.
What then is the problem? I'll tell you what the problem is. The truth sometimes hurts. If you can't handle the truth then just tune in to CNN and go on with your blissfully ignorant life.
