Quote# 78462

Should I be with my father for long periods of time each week if he is an atheist?

I see my father usually once a week but for about an hour or more at a time. I have had negative effects to my physical health from being with him. His advice was erroneous on health, and I became underweight. There is a holy scripture, which says: "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed" (Proverbs 13:20). I almost literally was destroyed. At least, I was severely declining in health.

Dang, all of us fighting the battle of the bulge would like to know what that advice was! Come to think of it, my atheist friends do tend to run leaner than the Christian ones. Ok by me, who needs flowing robes, when the Devil wears Prada!

Doctor Whom

Your father is an atheist and gave you bad advice on health. That proves a causal relationship, especially since no believer has ever given bad advice on anything.

You know atheist usually don't talk about religion. If you don't talk about your religion you two would probably get along.

When your poor old father is on his deathbed begging to see his child one last time, you will run away so you don't absorb his ebil atheist magic. Fuck you.

While I have met some whacko atheists, in my experience atheists are more likely to be conversant with scientific ideas about health, therefore you are more likely to get good advice. Sounds as if you have other issues, like maybe another family member implicating your father without evidence.

How the heck did you manage to become underweight from just an hour or two once a week?

In what way is his advice on health related to his atheism?

I'm sure dad is very proud at the ignoramus his son has become.

He tolerates your horly visits because he has to.

Methinks you're just looking for an excuse to avoid your father. Which sucks, by the way.

Doubting Thomas

What about honoring thy father and mother?

This is why I can't stand religion. It tears family bonds apart and gives people a reason to hate others.

Every once in a while I read one of these and wonder what really went on?

Yeah, FUCK those ten commandments!

This is the attitude that led my brother to cutting off contact with me, except where he can't avoid it. I sincerely hope this poster doesn't throw away his or her family. It's utterly heartbreaking for those who are shunned.

Doesnt your bible say honor your parents? you dont sound like your honoring them the way youre acting.

1/4/2011 11:28:19 AM


... I became underweight. There is a holy scripture, which says: "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed" (Proverbs 13:20).

There is a holy scripture, which says: "The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want" (Proverbs 13:25)

Your inability to know good advice out of bad advice is quite amusing.

1/4/2011 11:39:09 AM


He's trying to convert you. Everyone knows atheists are skinny. Just watch out for the black-rimmed glasses; once you've got one of those you'll be one of us permanently and you'll start having an irresistible urge to grow a soul patch.

1/4/2011 11:59:00 AM

Naturally, bad health advice stems from your father being an atheist rather than him simply knowing fuck-all about your health issues.

Creedence Leonore Gielgud

Honor thy father, and thy mother that thy days may be long...except when it's inconvenient for you, or your pastor instructs you otherwise. Just like the rest of the 10 Commandments really.

So, you see him once a week and you blame him for losing weight?. You´re hiding us something.
