  2. Well he spelled it out the long list of reasons for all the baggage that being a Xtian has brought with it over the last 2,000 years. We have left the age of religion and we are now in the age of reason. Time to give up being an Xtian and walk away from the irrational view of the world called religion. Hitchens certainly got the title right.

  10. Okay, this is a load of crap.  Original sin doesn't exist.  This is liek the religious version of white guilt.  You're not responsible for what other people did,  There are PLENTY of good arguments against Christianity, but this one is bs.  Grow some balls kid and take responsibility for your decision to choose to follow a faith that you're so ashamed of.  DOn't internalize all everything Christianity ever did like you did them.  You didn't!  And don't think that your being "really sorry" means that now it's totally fine for you to just ignore logic and continue with a faith (that you clearly have no pride in) because it "feels good."  This is the worst kind of Christian, the pussy hypocrite.  < /rant >

  11. I looked at this more like performance art rather than anything prescriptive.  I'd probably agree with you if it were presented in a manner that was less artistic and more purely emotive.  Still I get your POV.

  12. it seems like people don't look at this as an art form but want it to be an airtight creed. he's not ashamed of the faith, i think. he's ashamed of the misuse of it.

  13. This might be particularly difficult in case you use a a low credit score history pay day Loans junker said eurozone ministers meeting
    in brussels would discuss whether greece needs to
    be given extra time for you to cut its debt to 120 percent of its gdp
    beyond the first deadline of 2020.
