    Just my opinion but I find nothing humorous about what you posted. I find it insulting but this is America and we must live with our opinions of anothers faith.

    I agree, try doing that with a picture of Mohammed or Moses or Buddha and see what reaction you get. Christianity is the only religion that you can openly insult without fear of consequence, well at least consequence right now. So funny how they always insist on us acting as respectful Christians, yet they are free to insult away. I hope Onlinedad teaches his kids better manners than that.

    That you would I have no doubt.

    As an Atheist, I have no holy figures for alterbelievers to defile, but if you posted pics of Ben Franklin taking sexual advantage of Michio Kaku while Bill Nye filmed it, I'd be a might squicked off.

    That said, OLdad, that was hilarious. I've seen several Cliff's Notes versions of Christian faith before, but never accompanied by such visual aids.

    And before someone dredges up something ludicrous, like "Evolution is the idea that an explosion in a junk yard can result in the formation of a newly manufactured automobile." I said Cliff's Notes version, not hyperbolic liar's version.
    When they "Nudge. Shove. Shoot.",
    Don't retreat. Just reload.

    Go post the same thing on the Islamic prophet with Islamic web folks and see how humorous people find imagining this vain thing that Onlinedad takes such pleasure in. Nevertheless, the only one that really matters on how He is laughing at the atheist attacks against Him is God:

    Psalm 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

    2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],

    3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    Psalm 53

    1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

    Wanna talk about a vain thing? Let's talk about the inevitable heat death of the universe. Give it a few more googol years and the entire universe, every star, every planet, every man, woman, and child, every book, and every thought of humanity, every triumph and every failure will be rendered into an amorphus mass of thermodynamicly inert... snot.

    Everything is vain. Including belief in the divine. I would say nothing is more vain than belief int he divine, but whatever gets you through the night as the wolves howl at your door.

    John Adams wrote that, "the general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity."

    However, Adams had a rather odd concept of the "general principles of Christianity." He said that they were the principles upon which could unite Roman Catholics, English Episcopalians, Scotch and American Presbyterians, Methodists, Moravians, Anabaptists, German Lutherans, German Calvinists, Universalists, Arians, Priestleyans, Socinians, Independents, Congregationalists, Horse Protestants, and House Protestants, Deists and Atheists, and Protestants "who believe nothing."

    In other words the "general principles of Christianity" were limited to the principles held by atheists. That would seem to exclude even a belief in the existence of God from John Adams' idea of the "general principles of Christianity."

    John Adams was a odd sort of fellow, it seems to me. Brilliant, but odd. Not that there's anything wrong with being a little odd.

    Sorry, Cathy, you are wrong again, belief in Jesus Christ as our Saviour is the most important decision to make in ones life. Hopefully one day you shall know that yourself.

    Shouldn't we let Congress make that decision for us. We've already granted Congress power over our duty to pray. Why not grant it explicit power over our duty to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior?
