    Default Are people running out of things to complain about???

    I just read both of these on some myspace bulletins and my only thought was that whoever started these emails have wayyy too much time on their hands or have nothin better to complain about...

    "I received this email from a friend and thought it was worth sending on. Please help do this... refuse to accept these coins when they are handed back to you.

    I received one from the Post Office as change and I asked for a dollar bill instead. The lady just smiled and said, "Way to go," so she had read
    This e-mail. Please help out. Our world is in enough trouble without this too!!!!!


    U.S. Government to Release New Dollar Coins


    You guessed it - 'IN GOD WE TRUST' IS GONE!!!


    If ever there was a reason to boycott something, THIS IS IT!!!!

    DO NOT ACCEPT THE NEW DOLLAR COINS AS CHANGE

    Together we can force them out of circulation.

    Please Send to all on your mail list !!!"



    This one struck me as just fucked up.

    "I'm sure that by now most of you have hard of the new Holiday kids movie 'The Golden Compass'. The movie has been described as 'atheism for kids' and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled 'His Dark Materials' that was written by Phillip Pullman.

    Pullman is a militant atheist and secular humanist who despises C. S. Lewis and the 'Chronicles of Narnia'. His motivation for writing this trilogy was specifically to counteract Lewis' symbolisms of Christ that are portrayed in the Narnia series. Clearly, Pullman's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview that 'my books are about killing God.' He has even stated that he wants to'kill God in the minds of children'. It has been said of Pullman that he is 'the writer the atheists would be praying for, if atheists prayed.


    While 'The Golden Compass' movie itself may seem mild and innocent, the books are a much different story. In the trilogy, a young streetwise girl becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle to ultimately defeat the oppressive forces of a senile God.
    Another character, an ex-nun, describes Christianity as 'a very powerful and convincing mistake.' In the final book, characters representing Adam and Eve eventually kill God, who at times is called YAHWEH. Each book in the trilogy gets progressively worse regarding Pullman's hatred of Jesus Christ.

    'The Golden Compass' is set to premier on December 7, during the Christmas season, and has been heavily advertised.
    Promoters hope that unsuspecting parents will take their children to see the movie, that they will enjoy the movie, and that the children will want the books for Christmas. Please consider a boycott of the movie and the books.

    Please repost this guys. Myspace is one of the largest and fastest growing online networks. If there's something we want to get the word out about, myspace is the place to do it. Pass this on and get people informed about what it is they're supporting when they watch this movie. Thanks.

    'The Joy Of The LORD Is My Strength' Nehemiah 8:10"


    Im not really sure what to say about those only because they sound so rediculous. Im not bashing religion or refusing dollar coins but honestly...this is a bit much.

    don't forget that some of the bible thumpin' groups have been boycotting Disney over their "gay friendly" policies at Disney parks (gay days, etc.)

    now i'm no financial gen-i-us...but it doesn't look like Disney is hurtin' to me.

    The coin deal is FALSE: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/dollarcoin.asp

    The movie thing however, is apparently TRUE: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp

    Wait a minute...

    An athiest is a person who doesn't believe that God exists, right? If this guy is writing a story about killing God, he must believe in God, otherwise there's nothing to kill.

    So this guy really believes in God, he just doesn't like him and wants to kill him.

    I don't think this guy is as much of an athiest as he is a...well... a dummy.







    Don't read this.

    No, he's an atheist, big time. Hates the thought of others believing in any kind of deity. My family won't be watching or supporting this movie.

    I posted this on my blog in the Premium section this weekend:

    http://www.tnr.com/politics/story.ht...6-a055d46299d0

    It details how Atheism has gone the wrong direction and changed from Non-Belief to Anti-Belief. Which is a huge difference.

    I thought this was another "Harry Potter is promoting witchcraft" type thing. Turns out it's not.

    My fiance is a catholic school teacher here and they sent her a flyer talking about how this movie is anti-religion and used many of the quotes in the snopes cititations. When she told me about it, I scoffed and figured it was Archbishop Burke overreacting again, but apparently, for once, he isn't.

    Interesting how they stepped off the tone a little bit in the movie, but they are right, it would just make people buy the books.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    You know, then he's no different than the worst of the bible thumpers out there trying to tell us all how to live, he's just preaching a different (lack of) faith. What a fucking hypocrite.

    I'll make them a deal - stop trying to raise my kids, and I won't try to raise yours. Well, unless you put them on my football team, in which case it may be to their benefit to believe in God, just to get them through practice.

    Seriously, though, I'm SO sick of people trying to dictate how others live. I mean, yes, there are societal standards you need to follow, but some of this shit is ridiculous...

    Mine either. It's one thing for him to choose not to believe, he has that right. But he's so Anti-belief as Axx mentioned that it's scary.
