Hey wait a minute, that is really just marketing. Churches can use marketing. Bad taste? Maybe. Plus that's the catholic church, and its NYC. Put it in context. You can't equate the charlatan salesmen with the religion or its adherents. I never liked that whole confession thing. When there are murderers and rapists confessing and then the church helps justice happen confession might be helpful, plus confessing is good for the soul. But I see no personal benefit from it, but then I'm not catholic. I can't be a catholic, too much kneeling, get down, get up, get down, get up. Oy! I was in a catholic wedding once and that was enough for me. Catholicism isn't for wussies.


"Just marketing"? Here is what Bill Hicks said:

Catholicism is for the guilty. Those who need to be forgiven for their sins and those who didn't realize those sins existed before the church defined those sins for them. Then again the "church" has murdered many humans and wasted many more lives.

When the "church" murdered the Native Shamans by burning them at the stake in the 1600's, they'd say it with their "god's" mercy or forgiveness or some shyte.

I'd write more, but I don't have time.

C'mon...it's not like I'm using CAPs for my sig. I just changed the color so it would match my slingshot and got a little bigger font.

I would have kept the font size down if I could have fit more than just one quote this time. But I think this is a pretty important quote, considering the current events. ;)

I want to get back to this. Unfortunately, I'm currently on dialup and it is late.

Questions, since the King James version talks about the strength of a unicorn, how strong are they?

Who wrote the Bible that the King James version was based on? (I forget his name, what was it)?

What documentation did he base is version on?

Which "christians" agree on the King James version and why would other Christians set out to revise that version?

If Christians all agree on the same translation why is there still infighting between them?

That's a start. :D

Oh and when I don't capitalize christian, I'm not talking about Christians. ;) And I'm certainly not talking about Ishua followers...that is something completely different. ;)

G'night. I hate dialup! :(


Strong enough to create a worm hole when two Unicorns touch Horns.
Wish I could have got to that sooner.

The word for unicorn was translated wrong in the KJV. The Hebrew word mistranslated was re'em which is more accurately translated as wild ox.

This is from apologeticpress, but they even quote Isaac Asimov (an atheistic Jew) who wrote about this as well.
