Quote# 43857

[Perspective much?]

"We must understand that spiritual devastation is a far greater evil than any kind of natural disaster. The whole world was in a state of shock over the great earthquake and accompanying tsunami that occurred in the Indian Ocean on December 26, 2004. The fires in California and the floods in the Midwest have left us all wondering what could happen next, and we fear even a financial tsunami. But even if the whole earth should quake and swallow up half of mankind, if most of the human race should die of famine or plague, or if a huge asteroid should strike the earth and leave the planet devoid of all life, it would not be as great a disaster as one mortal sin."

Except it's possible to atone for mortal sins, I believe, reverse them. Good luck doing that with natural disasters.

Well god damn.

Oh shit, sorry. How many people did I just kill?

Allegory for Jesus

"if most of the human race should die of famine or plague, or if a huge asteroid should strike the earth and leave the planet devoid of all life, it would not be as great a disaster as one mortal sin."

Well, then Las Vegas and San Francisco should be veritable hells on Earth. Funny...

Stealing communion wafer > Asteroid killing everybody

Way to trivialize human suffering asshole.

7/30/2008 4:45:11 AM


Kill yourself.

So this vanity and pride you're showing in your religion and your 'knowledge' thereof is more devastating than the quake in China? Who could have known!

7/30/2008 4:49:15 AM


So people dying in large numbers < annoying your imaginary friend?

You need to get your priorities strait.

7/30/2008 5:24:28 AM


Wow ... just ... wow!

ah yes, a representative of the church of kiddie fiddlers and boy molesters.

Surely the destruction of a child's innocence should be up there with blasphemy. Oh, wait, they were priests, ordained into the holy catholic church. That's all right then, move them to a new district with new unsuspecting innocents to defile.

...No I'm pretty sure it's you who's gonna be fucked.


7/30/2008 6:59:07 AM


I'm doing fine. How are you?

7/30/2008 7:26:21 AM


Fear, fear, fear, fear and yet more fear.
If an asteriod strikes we have a maximum of 11 seconds warning and with an earthquake even less. So what.
Tsunamis you have 15 minutes warning if you know the initial signs. Gives you time to save others as well as yourself.
I have two solutions for you..
See a psychiatrist or run for president.
Try the second option as we have living proof that it works.

I was intrigued by the entry further down:

'Reflection by Father Ted'

...but sadly it has nothing to do with the UK TV show of the same name

A financial tsunami? Waves of money washing over me? Quick, tell me where I should go for it!

7/30/2008 12:02:04 PM

Mister Spak

Earthquakes and floods are real. Sins are not.

7/30/2008 1:08:01 PM

The Jamo

I welcome this financial tsunami. After all, when was the last time any of us experienced a massive tidal wave of money?

7/30/2008 1:27:53 PM


You are a big ass.

7/30/2008 1:42:38 PM


So....Something your god doesn't agree with but can be forgiven is worse than a natural disaster which takes the lives of thousands. That is some fucking perspective. Get your damn priorities straight

7/30/2008 2:25:50 PM


'SIN' is a religious construct invented by humans. It's main use is to keep the masses in control with religious terrorism in form of mental waterboarding using "sins"

Old school fire and brimstone preaching, holy shit I thought this died out 3 centuries ago.
