Yes and hopefully the Spaghetti-Monsterites will take a few extra steps and fall off a cliff so I don't have to waste my spirit points popping a cap in those muthas. B-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

But didn't the English import Protestants to run the place in lieu of the Catholics for 400 or so years, egineering a political structure, famines, etc. to keep the profits coming in and to disenfranchise 'home rule'? Recently, perhaps religion has faded as the 'primary' driver of allegiance but I think that the roots are still religious in nature.


The short answer is no. The long answer runs for several books' worth. Suffice to say, the famines were in no way 'engineered.'

Well, this is definitely territory we don't need to be getting into, but Catholicism can oftentimes be considered a Christian religion in principle only. I know many Catholics that I consider to be Christians, but many more that I don't, unfortunately. :-[


Well a Christian is a person "Professing belief in Jesus as Christ or following the religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus."

So maybe your defintion of a Christian is too narrow.

Don't feel too bad for them- after all, their heaven contains beer volcanoes and stripper factories. In other words, it's a lot like Wr's house the night the Padres clinched the division.

Aren't they called Pastafarians anyway? It's really just a joke, so I wouldn't take it too seriously regardless.

Are you just trying to be offensive?


Of course not, Amazinz. That's why I began with what I did. I'm not going to expound on my points of view on this matter, because they are largely unpopular. I suppose, though, that I mainly look into percentages and maybe that's not fair because there are a great deal more Catholics than other denominations.

Of course I do not mean to offend anyone and I suppose I could have kept that to myself...I apologize.

Don't act as a edited, and you won't be perceived as one. I've always found it a good trade-off, but whatever floats your boat. :-°

True true. Props given. I hadn't seen his original comments until now, it pissed me off.
