My family came to visit today. SIL found a plastic egg in the yard. The church in our neighborhood was tossing them out in the neighbors yards with a note inside. Irritating!

Augh. That is soooooooo American Christian. 😡

(Know what I always wonder? If their afterlife is so awesome, WhyTF do they want all of us there? A logical person would keep that shit as quiet as humanly possible, barely whispering about it to anyone, because it's so bloody special. I thought this even when I was a theist. So nonsensical.)

You do make a very valid point 😆

Send some eggs with science quotes on their lawn.

Send them a picture of you wearing a colander on your head, and say that you will pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster for their immortal souls.

They will be having an easter egg hunt next weekend. They can't see my house from inside the church because they face one street (corner) and mine is actually behind them on the cross street, so I thought I might add a few eggs with a secular message to the hunt. smile002.gif

either that, or actual passages from the Bible that demonstrate their cherry picking nature... like the ones that condone slavery and such...

1 Peter 2:18: "Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel."

Psalm 137, "Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us / He who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks."

1 Samuel 15:3: "This is what the Lord Almighty says ... 'Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.' "

Judges 19:25-28 “So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight. When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, ‘Get up; let’s go.’ But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.”

Genesis 22:2 ‘Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.’

Deuteronomy 22: 20-21 "But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you."

Leviticus 21:18-21 "For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken. No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the Lord made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God."

Deuteronomy 25:11-12 "When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her."

Leviticus 26:27-30 "If in spite of this you still do not listen to me but continue to be hostile toward me, 28 then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over. 29 You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters."

@Kafirah JFC! Yikes.

@mzbehavin Yeah, and that's just a quick list... there are far worse in there.

Maybe someone should toss those eggs back into the church yard with notes inside saying there is no god, so stop deceiving and frightening people to get their money.

I see religious crap like this and the stuff they stick on your door as littering.

Give it back with a note inside about plastic pollution...

Sending a message in an egg. Part of what is ironic, is that the easter bunny is a pagan idea!

what! no candy! What is wrong with people. Easter is about eggs - either kind - chocolate or jelly bean.

If it was me, I may fill it with a little treat from the litter box and return it.

Holy fuck...thats desperation?

And they don't even have to get out of the car, just chuck them out the window.

Write a message of your own, put it in the egg and toss it back.

Jnei Level 8 Apr 14, 2019

I'd be tossing it Easter Sunday myself... lol

You don’t have littering laws?

I live in a red state and religious bullshit is not considered litter. smile003.gif

@mzbehavin Your state looks like a rusty butcher knife. I’ll leave you to guess what the red color may be.

Tell church not to invade your space and that you don´t believe in ghosts. I would be irritated too.

Plastic ?. At least if it had been a chocolate one you could have enjoyed eating it.

Did you try to complain to the church. This is so annoying.

"I was over in Australia during easter, which was intersting. Interesting to note they celebrate Easter the same way we do; commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus by telling our children a giant bunny rabbit left chocolate eggs in the night.

Now, I wonder why we're fucked up as a race, anybody? Anybody got any clues out there?

Where do you get this shit from you know? Why those two things you know? Why not ‘Goldfish left Lincoln Logs in your sock drawer’ you know? As long as we’re making shit up, go hog wild you know. At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on it's back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous conotation to it.

'Mummy, I woke today and there was a Lincoln Log in me sock drawer!'.

'That's the story of Jesus'.

Who comes up with this shit?! I’ve read the Bible. I can’t find the words ‘bunny’ or ‘chocolate’ anywhere in that fucking book".

Prey or pray and do they know the difference. Write a note " I'm white" and return to sender.
