A tedious jaunt through my existence. Be sure to let me know if you spot any interesting bits, as I may have missed them - no prizes are offered or implied.

For your health be sure to take a break of at least 15 minutes for every hour of viewing. If product gets into eyes, rinse with clean water and seek immediate medical assistance.

Jesus Christ...

...must be spinning on his cross. A very tacky plastic thing full of 'holy water'

I don't really hold any religious convictions but this thing just made me want to puke. Crass commercialism from a centre of spiritualism. Maybe I'm missing the real point but it seems like total disrespect for your faith? As a seperate but related issue I really feel that in this country Christianity has completely lost it's way. Plenty of people still going through the motions but where's the belief? Do you know any happy lively Christians?

Firstly, Hells teeth!

Secondly, i do know a few lively happy christians...not being one of them myself, i kinda think the ideology is basically sound but the dogma, ritualism and rigid rules are dated and out of touch with modern society

My dad has a theory that the decline is, in part, due to a distinct lack of 'the fear' of god or of Lucifer for that matter...i.e, removal of consequences?

* insert Joes quote from 'The Usual Suspects' : "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist" *

Mmmm food for thought :)

I'm a Christian. I know many extremely happy ones. Ah, we're a lively bunch. I tell you what, that 'holy water' is almost as crass as the Jesus on wheels sold by the Disney Shop...

I was raised catholic, mainly as my grandmother wouldnt have it any other way, i never really believed any of the crap they told me. "Love thy neighbour? doubtful".
I told my nan that I thought it was a load of twaddle, she was not impressed. Then I came across other faiths that all have good points. I try to live a good life, and I do follow my own code of honor (no really).
At the end of the day guys Bill Hicks said it best.
" Its just a ride, some of us forget this and the people at the top want us to forget, its ipto the rest of us to remind everyone that it is just a ride."
Just enjoy it. whatever all that bollocks means.
