Probably. Christian nutjobs protest anything and everything.

Seriously, is there anything that DOESN'T offend you freaks?

Does anyone else out there hate the time change?
I'm sure there are.
It,s so abrupt
So don't observe it. Its not like you are forced to observe DLS time, there are thousands of people including whole counties that don't. Otherwise deal with it and quit fucking whineing.
and whether it,s the fall or spring it always leave,s me uneasy
"Uneasy"? You make it sound like you are scared of it.
How dare man play with the way God made the gradual time change from winter to spring
You do realize that they don't actually change the time, just what the clock says. Which I'm fairly certain was man made and not handed downby your god.
to being an abrupt one
You do realize tht it's only abrupt in your fame of reference, nothing but what the clock saysis changed.
just to make more daylight in the evening with the sole purpose of making $$$.
Because money, not your "god", is what drives the economy.
Does anyone know if christian groups protested the time change agenda when it 1st was proposed by our goverment?
I'm sure some did, and I'm sure they sounded just as stupid as you do now.

God didn't make our time system. It's a different time at every longitude. Until the invention of dependable clocks, no one bothered with exact times. The Catholic Church recognized prayer times as lauds (before dawn), prime (daybreak), terce (mid-morning), sext (noon), nones (mid-afternoon), vespers (sunset) and compline (bed time); and in the Middle Ages, people usually referred to the time of day by these terms, too. With clocks, each region had its own standard. The railroads eventually standardized the times within "time zones" because they had to keep to schedules.

I believe in letting God set all my clocks. Each room is its own time zone.

Oh for fuck's sake! Now daylight savings are an issue? Do you people ever stop? GO GET LAID ALREADY!
3/23/2010 5:32:58 PM
Move to Saskatchewan. They chucked it years ago.
Oh, and recognitions of the seasons are thousands of years old. They were generally recognized with celebrations that fell on specific dates.

Our measurements of time are wholly arbitrary and established by man. God did not give us time measuring systems.
3/23/2010 5:40:35 PM
while there really is absolutely no point to daylight savings time, it being "unchristian" has got to be the dumbest reasoning against it i've ever heard.
3/23/2010 5:59:48 PM
The following posts in that thread are just as good.
3/23/2010 6:09:03 PM
Actually, it was done for the purpose of SAVING money.
3/23/2010 6:22:14 PM
Probably, I mean you fucking protest everything else.
3/23/2010 6:26:34 PM
Yeah, man should never have thought of time nor created ways to measure it. Surely that was the work of Satan. No STFU and go away, I'm still hiberating.[/b]

My great-grandfather did back in the 60's, when DST was finally extended to Alabama. He refused to change his clocks back and forth, but he still had to go to appointments and church services an hour earlier, so it really didn't make any difference.
And no, men aren't playing with the way the seasons work. They're changing an artificial construct--namely, the practice of dividing a day into hours, and when those hours should begin and end. Man can't make the sun actually rise or set any sooner or later than it does.

It's official, rapture ready has finally jumped the shark.
3/23/2010 8:08:26 PM
This one is insane even by the minimal standards of the Raptards.
3/23/2010 8:22:33 PM
Yes, I do hate the time change, especially the spring change. But it takes like, two days tops, to get adjusted again. It's ok.
Abrupt? Not so much: you know its coming. Its not a surprise. Start adjusting a few days earlier.
Its not a conspiracy, it hasn't killed you yet, take a deep breath and go find something else to talk about.
3/23/2010 8:22:39 PM
I don't know what to do. Laugh?
3/23/2010 9:23:56 PM
and the wheather channel is an atheist conspirecy too
3/23/2010 9:55:20 PM
Gawd, the DLS had nothing to do with religion or atheism you daffy bastard!
3/23/2010 9:57:32 PM
Next week 24thchance (this year the Rapture will come!) will tell us that clock chimes are satanic because at noon they strike twelve times - one strike for each of the apostles, and what sort of person would want to strike the apostles?
3/23/2010 10:38:46 PM
What the shit.
3/23/2010 11:30:31 PM
Since the time as we know is a human convention, your claim is totally bullshit.
3/24/2010 1:40:45 AM
So I guess you work out the local time using a sundial rather than setting your clocks to Pacific time or whatever time zone you happen to live in?
Nice to see a few relatively sane people on that thread though. :)
3/24/2010 4:42:13 AM
I'm sure christian groups protested the calendar when it was first invented. Also the clock and writing. And light bulbs. And fire.
