It’s really weird trying to explain the differences between Catholicism and other branches of Christianity to people who aren’t religious because it ultimately ends up, “Well this is Catholic, this is Catholic classic, this is Catholic-lite, this is diet Catholic, this is new taste less calories not as popular Catholic, and this is I can’t believe it’s not Catholic.”

"But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?"

- Mark Twain

This is honestly my favorite quote. It’s changed how I look at life and religion.

"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful." .. (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

I think that’s called Scientology.

Conveniently, it has already sucked in lots of rich people and successfully infiltrated the IRS in the past, so

"One way to look at it is this: The whole point of establishing a corporation is to create an entity separate from oneself to limit legal liability. Therefore, Hobby Lobby is asking for special protections/liability limits that only a corporation can get on the one hand, and special protections that only individuals, churches and religious organizations get, on the other. It seems awfully dangerous to allow corporations to have it both ways."

Answer
  • Question: I don't know where cosmogyros' sister got her information, but "devil" comes from "deofol" (Old English) which originally comes from the Greek "diabolos" (accuser, calumniator, slanderer, traducer) from "diaballein" (to slander, traduce, literally "to throw across") from the prefix "dia-" (through) and the verb "ballein" (to cast). The prefix has nothing to do with the PIE words *dyeu- or *dewos; in fact, it comes from the root of "duo" ("two" or "twice.") (Source: Oxford English Dictionary) - dailyetymology

i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake

fabulous 

i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.

Yeah but that was part of some weird Jehovah induced Xanatos gambit to absolve humanity of its own sins that he instigated himself in order to make humanity worship him en masse. Not sure it counts.
