Well, I do think a lot of people are far too obsessed with getting married these days. I'm not sure this suggestion is going to appeal to a lot of people, though.

No, don't try to talk them out of it! They will raise fewer fundies this way!

An intersting new take on the Bible's \"be fruitful and multiply\" passage.
Don't get me wrong, Merciel, I think you and your church friends SHOULD be celibate. Blaze a shining path for us sinners to follow... even if not very closely.

By all means, don't reproduce! the world will be better off!

I'm going to call it a case of Poe's Law in action. This thing positively reeks of sarcasm.

Someone loves Jesus a bit too much...

Please carry through with this.

But if you're celibate, won't God get all angry that you weren't fruitful and didn't multiply?
Yeah, you're stuffed both ways. Just go out and have some good sex already. It might show you how dreary and useless your brand of religion is.

After reading the thread I believe he was being sarcastic.
4/19/2007 12:35:14 PM
Hmm. That would be a most effective way of ending religion - no children, no little people to brainwash young to continue absurd and useless mythologies. Great plan!

And then they find homosexuals abhoring because --this is their reasoning-- if everybody was a homosexual, the human race would die out in one generation.
So, if I understand Merciel clearly, if everybody was a genuine christian, the human race would die out in one generation as well.

That WOULD solve overpopulation.

Who says you need a spouse to have sex?

Didn't Think This Cunning Plan All the Way Through Award?

Could be Poe, but the Shakers really did believe this.
Of course, there are no more Shakers....
4/19/2007 4:42:29 PM
OF course! Don't procreate. Please.

He was pretty obviously responding sarcastically to the OP poll. Yes, Christians actually can use sarcasm and irony and all that good stuff. I vote not stupid.
4/19/2007 8:57:18 PM
Oh and by the way, if you go back to the first page you'll see that the poster is actually homosexual and living as married with his/her partner. So, yeah, sarcasm.
4/19/2007 8:59:37 PM
Christianity, gone in just one generation. Sounds fine by me.
4/20/2007 8:19:19 AM
Start with the quiverfulls and let me know how that goes.
4/20/2007 4:11:10 PM
read the thread...it was sarcastic. The last line of this post was cut out to make it seem more fundiish. He ends by criticizing anybody who flippantly says \"stay celibate\" without considering how difficult it would be.
4/20/2007 5:01:43 PM
Tell that to the celibate congregation who has three remaining members because they can't recruit anybody new who wants to abandon the nookie.
