  1. at making those in power rich and supporting a lavish lifestyle. you do have to be careful that the peasants dont become offended by your excessive riches though:

    MOSCOW, April 5 (Reuters) - The Russian Orthodox Church apologised on Thursday for doctoring a photograph of Patriarch Kirill to remove what bloggers said was a luxury wristwatch following accusations that he lives a lavish lifestyle.



    It responded after eagle-eyed bloggers said an archive photo of the Patriarch on its website showed the reflection of a Breguet watch worth about $30,000 in the polished surface of a table where his arms rested during talks.

    Really?

    You don't even understand the implied?

    Have you ever come here on these forums and ranted about Islam? Judaism? Hinduism, Buddhism, Wicca or any other religion?

    Nope, just a daily dose of Anti-Christian dribble. If no other religion boils your blood, then the source of anger must be against the roots of the one religion that your efforts are spent, namely the Christian God and Jesus..... and since you vehemently deny their existence????

    Hence the statement, The fool is someone who's offended by something he says doesn't exist.
     
  7. ... at bringing rabid atheist lunatics like you out of the sewer to rail against it.
     
  8. christian are trying to take over our government not any of the others. this is america and i deal with americas religion.

    but take heart. its not just christianity. all religions are mass delusions.


    Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
