who the fuck is St. Ninian?

A loss for who exactly?...
11/24/2009 7:27:47 PM
St. Ninian - what about Fred Burns? Oh! What a wealth of personality the universe would have to suffer without his inimmitable presence. The earth will surely stop spinning when we lose . . . uh, is Freddy still with us?
Who the fuck gives a shit? Pfffftt take all the saints, and the aints, too.
11/24/2009 7:29:08 PM
Athanasius says Ninian is male. I thought female too, but only because of the Fire Emblem character. (Heh.)
11/24/2009 7:36:21 PM
How do we know this wasn't one of the made up saints, like Saint Brigid?
11/24/2009 7:40:06 PM
Why, it would be as if I had never heard of him. Which I haven't.
11/24/2009 7:41:25 PM
Nothing is known about his teachings, and there is no unchallenged authority for information about his life.
Yeah, how could we live without that?

Imagine the loss to the world if Hitler had been aborted.
11/24/2009 8:03:34 PM
Since I've never heard of him before, and the fact that the church believes him to be a saint, we probably wouldn't have lost too much.
11/24/2009 8:19:28 PM
St. who to the whatsit? Since I have never heard of him, I don't think the world would really be that different.
11/24/2009 8:22:10 PM
Oh, yes, what a loss that would have been. *eyeroll*

Your magic sky pixie used to be able to withstand anything except iron chariots. Now, a simple medical procedure can defeat his will.
11/24/2009 9:00:47 PM
I remember St. Ninian. He played left field for Dubuque in the old Three-I League.
11/24/2009 9:03:51 PM
St. Who? Can we officially call Catholicism a polytheistic religion now?
11/24/2009 9:14:18 PM
Who the hell is St. Ninian again?
11/24/2009 9:54:23 PM
As for the old chestnut of 'horrible trauma due to rape', while I do truly sympathise with victims of such a crime as rape I am nevertheless obliged to point out that St. Ninian was the product of rape. Imagine the loss to the world if his mother hadn't been raped.
That's what you meant to say, right?
11/24/2009 9:55:00 PM
Also...Imagine the loss to the world if Hitler had been aborted...sounds stupid, yes?
11/24/2009 11:22:14 PM
I don't think anybody would notice.
11/25/2009 12:10:30 AM
Adolf Hitler was the product of a heterosexual marriage, imagine if heterosexuals had not been allowed to reproduce. Imagine the world if he had not be born?
Down with heterosexual marriage!

I never really understood the "It's only ok to get an abortion if you're raped" argument. You either believe the foetus is a person or you don't. If you think a foetus is a child then by that logic it's ok to kill a rape-child. If you don't think the foetus is a child then you should be able to get an abortion rape or not.
11/25/2009 12:49:22 AM
I was raised a Catholic and I have no idea who the fuck St. Ninian was.
11/25/2009 1:09:30 AM
Pushing for something to be an option does not mean pushing for it to be the norm. We want women to have the OPTION of aborting a child that is a product of rape. Ultimately, the choice is up to the woman. I don't think you people get this; most of us don't like abortion any more than you do. People don't hate babies. It's just not something that happens.

Aww fuck, now you made me go google it,
Saint Ninian (lifetime uncertain) is a Christian saint first mentioned in the eighth century as being an early missionary among the Pictish peoples of what is now Scotland. For this reason he is known as the Apostle to the Southern Picts, and there are numerous dedications to him in those parts of Scotland with a Pictish heritage, throughout the Scottish Lowlands, and in parts of Northern England with a Northumbrian heritage. In Scotland, Ninian is also known as Ringan, and as Trynnian in Northern England.
Ninian's major shrine was at Whithorn in Galloway, where he is associated with the Candida Casa (Latin for 'White House'). Nothing is known about his teachings, and there is no unchallenged authority for information about his life.
Yeah, real loss to the world, he would have been.

@Chamale: gold star for you. Nicely done.
11/25/2009 1:16:16 AM
One word is enough to destroy the bloody argument you are trying to make. Even God can't do nothing against abillity to choose, and that is your teology, not mine. So, why would you take away something even god doesn't want to be taken?
