Show Business
Religion is show business, it's the folk art of human manipulation and everybody knows that "Annoying Grace" is any member of the church. Dont need a finger wagging nun to tell me whats right or wrong.....

Finger wagging?

In my day they used rulers. Sad

RE: Show Business
Ah, Catholics are lucky. We fundamentalist baptists analyzed the scriptures to determine precisely what sort of "rod" was needed to avoid the spoiling of a child. Beating them with a rod was biblical, but we hated those who beat children with anything else. That was child abuse.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

When you get down to it, everything is show business. If you want your memes to survive (or your genes for that matter), you need to package them in a way that will attract people and get them to pass them on. If you "don't want no religion" that is certainly up to you. But it being show business really should not affect that.

The roots of child abuse are in religion. Prisons are full of adult children that were abused as children. Only a punk and a puke hits a child. You interrupt epi-genetic phases that are a necessity of the gene expression within that child. Child abuse is abuse no matter what means you use.

Anybody that would hit a child will sell their own mother under a streetlamp

RE: Show Business
Nope. I know plenty of people who hit children regularly that practically worship their mothers, and would never sell them under a streetlamp. Often their mothers also hit them, and they grew to accept this as love.

I'm sorry, I agree with you that religion is bad, but you need to think through your arguments rationally before you post pure hatred here.

Finger wagging?

In my day they used rulers. Sad

Not a Ruler but a Foil!

I once got into a Fencing match with an 80 year old Nun over a huge disagreement.

I swear that Woman was crazy!
PS
I kicked her but by not getting mad at her back.

and she started the darn fight to.

So you don't need morals? Alright, I'll see you on my next safari... Just kidding, but for real, morals that teach us right from wrong are what separate us from our pets.

RE: Show Business
Morals do not come from religion. World history has taught us that better than anything else could. So I do not need a finger-wagging nun to tell me what's right or wrong. My sense of ethics is far better than her dogma.

Lol, that nun thing has kept me laughing for the past half hour. I suppose your right though, through the repetition of our ancestors we have learned what ethics there are and how we shall choose between them.
