My Favorite





Well they were Christians. While one of my ancestors came over on the Mayflower, My wife's ancestors shot arrows at it.

I think you're missing my point entirely.

I'm sure Jesus agrees lol. Christians need the world too. haha. These sorts of things add to the reasons of why I'm Ex-Christian...(though i never really could understand Christianity, so i must have been one of those "faith struggling Christians" the culture was easy enough to follow and fool, they were sure I was gonna be the next pastor at church).

I think it's a free country, and I have no idea why people who claim to be for freedoms are always making a direct hit on criticism of the Christian faith.

Oh, wait... yes, I do -- it's because they don't understand that freedom includes freedom to criticize but most certainly does not include freedom from criticism.

+1

If christianity stood on its own merits, there would be no need for apologists to try and convince us what the bible really is saying(tm)

@NEETS66
When last did you hear of atheists handing out tracts of say, "origin of species" in your church?

I was behind a car not long ago with a bunch of bumper stickers. I think that the person was a) a Christian (had the fish), b) in recovery for alcohol or drugs ("Easy Does It" and "One Day At a Time") c) an electrician (the Local No.) and d) liked someone who was running for governor in my state two terms ago, and d) really liked bumper stickers

jojajn: 'Pisces' is plural ('piscis' is singular), and is also the name of a constellation near Pegasus. Which just goes to show the 'different meanings', or at least completely different contexts. Perhaps Christians are enamored of the constellation?

It might as well be a bumper sticker that says "Practitioner of willful ignorance"

It really says it when paired with McCain/Palin and faded Bush/Cheney stickers.

A trifecta!

I am not a fan of bumper stickers on cars. Even the stupid peace signs and "Save the Planet" are just graffiti for cars really.
