Making fun of the religious - what a premise. Bill Maher is Kenny Banya.

I'll be sure to check that one out. I hope he goes after everyone equally.

From the preview, it seems like he does, BleedBurgundy. Religion is interesting to me. I'm not sure how everyone can think they're 100% right and everyone else is wrong with absolutely no proof. I can understand believing that there's a god, etc. But saying your god is supreme and right basing it off some book, written by humans, with at best, 3rd to 4th hand information baffles me.

I can't wait for this one -- it's topic that doesn't get discussed nearly enough in my mind. Everyone should see the absolute lunacy of all the snake-dancing crazies out there.

Re: Bill Maher's New Movie "Religulous"
 
You know, I find this movie/documentary extremely offensive. I am proud to call myself a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ and believe He is my Lord and Savior. I'm not ashamed of my beliefs. I really don't care if Bill Maher is making fun of every religion equally, it still does not make it right in my eyes. I find this stuff just as offensive as racism.

I understand there are those who use religion to get rich or to cause violence. But, don't lump me and my faith in with t.v. evangelists who just want to get rich, the terrorists of the world, and the scam artist tent revivals. That isn't who I am. That isn't who the majority of religious people are. I'll never understand how the majority in this country will fight for civil rights, but will discriminate and make fun of religious people. Makes no sense to me.

With that said, I have enjoyed this Redskins forum. I think the warpath is the best Redskins forum on the internet. However, I can't in my right mind continue to post here knowing how a lot of you guys feel about people of religion. I refuse to get into a heated religious debate. I'll just leave and say thanks for giving me an opportunity to take part in this board. My name is Greg Sykes. Feel free to email me at [email]g.sykes@live.com[/email].

Matty, if you don't mind deleting my account please? Thanks.

skinsguy, deleting your account is a bit extreme don't you think? I personally have nothing against religious people, what I do have a problem with is the imposition of religious beliefs on others. Sometimes I can get heated and get ahead of myself and I apologize for if I have offended you in the past. In any case, instead of just walking away why don't enlighten us. Remember what Jimmy V said:

I don't think it's extreme for skinsguy to feel that way. I've felt that way myself many times. I'm a female christian republican, so I'm usually offended by one thing or another that I read on here almost everyday. I haven't gotten to the point that I want to leave, but it's probably one of the main reasons why I don't engage people more.

The level of mocking and arrogance on this board sometimes is hard to swallow.

skinsguy I understand how you feel. I'm a Catholic Republican and often disagree with many views here, sometimes I respond, sometimes I just "consider the source" and move on. How others, particularly in the media and Hollywood, feel about Christianity may be condescending and sometimes downright anti-religious, but IMO most of the folks here don't hold the extreme views of Bill Maher. They may be non-religious and find a movie like this funny because it will focus on the extremes that you mentioned, but I don't perceive the intent from the majority of the members on this site to be offensive towards Christians.

I'm not good at quoting scripture, but Christ brought the Good News to many who didn't want to receive these gifts. I've tried to stay away from religious discussions here for the most part, because it is so personal, but maybe folks like us should speak up more when things like this are brought up.

You are a valuable contributor here, I enjoy reading your posts, and this site will be worse off if you leave. Please reconsider.
