You know?,you could have made it short and simple instead writing a whole damn book about your opinions of what you think, believe and don't believe.<quoted text>Oh here it is the old wont spell Christian properly gag. LOL. "Taking shots" makes it sound like I'm firing without any care, taking random ones. But Im not, my hits are dead center and that annoys you. So much so that now you call out the cursing and attempts to use various labels as curses.
I have pretty much always spelled it - in a casual way - as such, since I was a little boy looking at the old Irish and older manuscripts with the Chi-rho...all fancily scripted out...few of my Catholic teachers gave a shyte...'cept in a paper, etc where proper spelling was demanded, in all things. I didnt use -'cause to mean because either...or 'cept for except.
Petty thing to attack me on, when there is historical precedent for using the X. I dont care that American Xtians take offense, because most American Xtians, are dumb backwoods Protys who know shyte about the history of their Religion.(upper case if youre counting!) The RC's aint much better, but at least I know they've seen the Chi-rho before,'proly on Sunday at church on the altar - and it rings some distant bell in their atrophied brains.
In fact, early Christians relied on the X - an abbreviation for the Chi-rho - as well. So pffft! Xtian it is!(and as a nonXtian you take offense to the spelling? I smell cooking duck.)
Oh, I used the RC (Roman Catholic) and RCC for the mother church...so again, pffft!
You know who are the only people who stand outside of Catholic churches telling those going in, or already in that they're not Catholics? Catholics! They're the only ones who care who is and isnt behaving as a Catholic! Roman Catholics care who follows their arcana. No one else.
But Protys do care that they practice their RC arcana, because they care about their (the RC's) credibility as Xtians - Christians. They may stand outside a RC Church and scream at the Catholics for not being real Xtians....but they dont call them Not real Catholics!
Here's how I know youre the bigger dumbarse. Proty Xtians say; "I was raised in a Christian home." While Catholics say; "I was raised in a catholic home." as Greeks most often say, "I was raised in an (Greek) Orthodox home." As do the other Orthodox churches. And here's a surprise, I know that they mean Eastern - Christian - Orthodox, and not Orthodox Jews.(Their little curly side bangs and sombrero typically give that one away)
Protys use "Christian" as a self-identifier. RC's say "Catholic" as their identifier.
What I cant figure out is what skin do you have in the game? Is it that you really sided with your Daddy's side...in that Christian home...where Daddys side were "those people", the not real Xtians...the ones who worship the pope...
So are you a closeted RC?
Or are you really a confused Proty, annoyed by 15ths claims of being a RC, as he's one of those "misguided people who have strayed from the book" - and as a Proty want to discredit him, while showing allegiance to your Proty "christian" side...?
You seem to want to straddle a fence...actually a few fences.
BYW, that you are confused as to my atheism is rather odd. What parts of my previous posts where I called it all mythical garbage did you not grasp...?
BTW,I know atheistic quips and behaviors on a public forum when I see it,so you two aren't fooling me a damn bit,you may have others fooled with that gag that 15th Dalai Lama likes to play on here but not me.
With people like you two,I know your game all too well on here.
