    A sad, but too often true reality in church.  The unfortunate thing is, that is not at all the way its suppose to be.

    it’s pretty funny how none of you is considering the right one as an atheist :)

    the last panel is a dead giveaway.

    Religion can very much be like a cult.  My belief is that Christianity is NOT truly “supposed” to be like that, though often it is.  Christianity is to be non-judging but loving.

    Eggdude, The nice thing about atheists is that,  even  if one tried to tell you “what to think, who to talk to and what to believe”, no one would listen to him, he’d be slapped down with a hearty F**K OFF, and he cannot threaten them with eternal punishment if they didn’t. Try to herd a cat.
