    Well I'm a Catholic so I probably wouldn't fit in there anyways.

But it's done intentionally.

    Also, with regard to the pornography part, you have to understand why it gets under the skin of many Christians: sex, to some sects, is considered sacred. It's not bad, it's sacred. Pornography can be seen as a sin or crisis because it trivializes an act that they hold holy and commercializes it. You can laugh at that if you want, but respect it the same way you would someone abstaining from hamburgers because they find cows sacred. I get that it's highly countercultural, and counterbiological, but it's a belief that deserves respect.

    Sorry, I'm probably taking this too seriously, but I wanted to address that.

    You make a very good point, so don't take this personally, but comparing to sex to cows made me laugh a little bit.

    Oh, and from what I understand BJ University (ha ha ha) isn't actually a real, accredited uni. I could be wrong, but last I heard they weren't authentic academia.

    I had to go to some Christian bible camp and got kicked out for "being offensive"/=

    Conversation:
    Me to other teenager: What's with all the Twihards? I like Harry Potter better.
    Director: Hey - your parents shouldn't let you read that. It's bad for your soul. We don't talk about that here.
    Me: Have you even read the books?
    Director: Of course not.
    Me: Then don't go around being a dick.


    Yeah, I felt bad after^^.

    Blowjobuniversitywhat?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Hope it wasn't targeted at me
    As it just so happens, I'm currently writing on a post for another forum about a thread titled 'The Creationism vs. Evolution Debate'.
    If anyone's interested I can post it here once it's finished (just to show you I wasn't serious in the above post ). It's a fairly long post though, but I was expressing some thoughts on scripture-based religion in general.
