Icon3 do we love religion?


Lets face it our nature is complex and love is giving.
Do we love religion as much as we love each other??

Are you trying to conjure Cityboy from the great beyond?

LOL I think I am yes.
So do you love or hate religion? Or are you partial?

I figured if he can talk to dead people, then he probably knows what's going on here at WB without even looking.

And when it comes to religion, I'm mostly indifferent.

Oh Nacia, my little transparent agent provocateur....

Mentioning the word 'love' three times in two sentences does nothing to hide your gleeful anticipation of creating a thread in the hope that it will turn into a blood bath.

Haven't you heard?

The Omnipotent One upstairs has formed a coalition government with the guy in red spandex and a toasting fork.

They rustled up a fuck-off sized lightning bolt and skewered all the namby-pambies who failed both Bible Study and Satanic Ritual
classes....resulting in harmony and an unwritten but universally understood rule that we shout "Oh God" during orgasm and end all arguments with the blessing "Go to hell".

There's just no controversy left Nacia....shame really...it was always fun.

The Dog’s Arse Messiah was hounded off this forum by religion haters and knuckleheaded mods. Which goes to show there’s more hate than love in religion.

Hey, bucko - I gave your dog's ass a pass, but was over-ruled from above. Be certain of that which you speak.

Geez...what if he's dead, and frantically trying to communicate with us to prove his point - and he can't?

Talk about gnashing of teeth...

Hey Bucko, the Dog's Arse Messiah doesn't need anyone's pass. For your information.

Your problem is you're just not open minded and you clearly haven't done enough investigation.

Tonight I'm going to light some candles and break out the ouija board. If he's dead, I'll let you know what he's up to.

I've used one, and I made contact with a spirit. It told me not to back talk and go clean my room, so I'm pretty sure it was my mom.

Ha. No. I do have a very old ouija board though, made in the 1920's, I believe. We found it in my grandmothers garage. If they did work, seems like that one would work better than a new one from Walmart.

The board looks very similar to the new ones, but the brand is different. The big difference is the thing you put your fingers on; it's made of wood and the little window is glass. The new ones are plastic. It's actually pretty cool.

Mmm. Wrong thread headline to snare him these days Nacia.

Try: There's a demonic entity living in my basement. Any ideas?

That's old school, Victorian parlour games. Try one of the new electric boards - they're amazing and would change your thinking completely on life after death.

Or one of these... doubles as a coffee table. It’s very expensive so I think maybe the spooky chick comes with it. But it’s not like THAT. She just sits around drinking your organic coffee and complaining about the sis male patriarchy.
