What are some religious phrases you hate?
« on: January 04, 2012, 03:05:40 am »
I AM BRINGING BACK THIS THREAD (even though I never posted in the old one)

Anyway, I hate it when they say that people choose to go to Hell, because that's just really dumb, I also hate it when they say you can't understand the Bible unless you accept Jebus as your Personal Slaver....oops I meant Saviour, not.
From international relations to religious rivalries, from marriage to athlete's foot, whatever the problem a fundy's first solution is usually violence.

I personally can't freaking stand it when people equate "Christian" with "good". This also goes for somehow thinking faith is a praiseworthy quality.

This.  It's annoying reading a story about a criminal and how nobody suspected it because "he was a church-going man."

I also hate any expression claiming that we choose to go to hell.  It's similar to saying you choose to get shot for disobeying the robber with a gun. 

-"We all deserve to go to hell".  No we do not.  Hell is the scariest and more terrifying concept known to man.  It's supposed to be worse than anything else on earth.  To say we deserve that is to say we deserve every other bad thing that happens on earth.  And to say we deserve the worst is emotionally abusive and traumatizing. 

-"Spare the rob, spoil the child" the child abusers favorite verse.  All corporal punishment defenders quote this, claiming that since it's in the bible, we can't deny it, which leads to another one.

-"Are you calling god a liar?" no dickhead, I'm calling you a liar.  You are the one who's talking, not god.

No, Rageaholic. *shakes head* Not all.

The rest of your post is spot-on, though.

Yeah, that annoys the shit out of me, and I see it all the time on the news. A reporter will go to a town and visit the neighbors of a convicted criminal, only to have them all say something like, "I never thought he was capable of doing something like this. He was a good Christian, I saw him in church every Sunday." That means absolutely nothing, jackhole. Religion is not a prerequisite for morality, and it's not a free pass that grants you a little badge of innocence.

Fixed that a little bit for you.

The thing, though, is that the rod in question is that hook thing that Shepards use.  What do they use it for?

To pull sheep away from dangerous things.  Not to hit the sheep with (though I'm sure many shepards have been tempted to do so and have indeed followed through)

"Christians are an oppressed religious group!"

Case in point: http://www.christianpersecution.info/

No, you're not oppressed in the slightest, unless your definition of "oppressed" is "being forced to comply to the First Amendment."

I'll just bring over what I said from the other forum:

Gott Mit Uns or 'God with us'. The use of it I hate because of many reasons.

I also don't like "the Lord sent me here to tell you" did He now?

And this one: "I'll pray for you." I get this too damn much. Lady (it's almost always women), I don't need praying for. Not for my Soul, not to get better. Not for anything. Maybe it makes you feel better but it doesn't help me. You want to help me? Cook me a meal, donate to science, donate to your local hospital, give me gas money. But praying does squat for me.

"Invite Jesus into your heart" I did that when I was in CCD and again when I left the RCC and moved on. The way this is used is a way of trying to turn gay people straight, etc., Just... eugh.

"The Lord works in mysterious ways" Hm. Does He really? This phrase is usually said after a natural disaster and is sometimes said in the same breath as "it was God's will". God's a dick, then, I guess if it was His will to kill a bunch of people and destroy homes and families and lives.

No, Satanism is just showmanship crossed with Randroidism. It's not a religion and it will not give you magic powers.

All variations of the following:

- "Jesus is the reason for the season! It's CHRIST-mas."
- "Don't cast pearls before swine."
- "It was all part of God's plan", in response to tragedy and suffering.
- "We are in the world, but not of the world."

They believe the world is an evil, dirty place, and that they're spiritually reborn/cleansed of original sin upon converting to Christianity, thereby becoming a child of heaven rather than a child of man (referring to their souls rather than their physical bodies). Or something.
