I had a creepy FB page today saying "It was my sin that nailed him there" and it had a photo of some thorny sticks and what look like railroad spikes...yikes! I sometimes forget people actually feel that deeply about this holiday/holy day. (It wasn't directed at me personally but somebody on my feed felt like sharing with everyone.......😲 ) Happy Good Friday, fellow heathens!

...’feel that deeply,’ or insanely? This is the manner in which these religious zealots operate in the world! They place the ‘blame’ on ‘those others,’ that are not like them..,for all that is wrong in the world! See how easy it was...they said it and it was so! Lol

It is creepy and common, unfortunately. They'll quote John 3:16 --- that god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, but this meme seems more representative:

Wow, we must be sooooo awful....ha ha. I never thought of it that way..."you or them, son".

At least it got the spikes in the wrists correct.

But it was a good day! Er Good Friday!

Every Friday is good Friday

Yes, that 's the spirit...and Sunday ham is Sunday ham....Easter or not.

Yes, as soon as I pull out the pipe and have a smoke it is a good Friday....

Exactly!

Human sacrifice ... the choice of all bronze age religions

Today was a paid holiday, that makes it damn good friday.

Whenever I see anything remotely religious or creepy on Facebook I usually "sleep" that person for 3 months, or just unfollow them. If they aren't my friends or close relatives and are particularly offensive I just defriend them.

Well it was just an odd thing to see since 75% of the posts I get are funny or political...or both. So it took me off guard. I wish I could share it but I looked around in meme land and couldn't find it...only funny ones about Good Friday...where I got sidetracked for awhile and got some laughs....the person who posted is a co-worker from many years ago who I don't work with anymore and I'm not in touch with her in any other way. I'm not offended so much as I am surprised by the sentimentality of sinners being forgiven but still guilty about the sin and broadcasting their guilt over social media.

me too!

The happy easter text from dad included the line 'hope you reflect on what this day really means'.
Would it be too much if I just texted back, 'still an atheist dad'?

Chocolate eggs & bunnies

Oh, go for it....

I often feel, as an Atheist ..as though I’ve arrived from another planet.. continuing to observe the indigenous flora & fauna… If nothing in my life has shown any indication of the powers they describe, fear, or worship, where’s that shit coming from? And why?

I had a similar experience after being in the army on Okinawa for 18 months. Came back to the U.S. in December of ‘73, and that whole Watergate thing had been going on for a while, and I kept thinking, “the president did WHAT?” And, “Jesus H. Christ, how long have I been gone?” I truly had the Readjustment Blues...my favorite John Denver song.

Despite Christian rhetoric dieing on the cross was not all that big of a sacrifice considering he was only dead for just three days. Someone who jumped on a grenade to save his buddies is dead forever...a much bigger sacrifice I would think.

"You want suffering, I'll show you SUFFERING>>>>" ( And your point is well taken...Crucified Friday night, dead in a cave Saturday all day, and risen on Sunday...doesn't sound so bad when you put it that way)

@mojo5501 yes but he WAS tortured by a horned madman wielding a three pronged rake under unbearably hot conditions.

And if he knew it ahead of time...it would just be a bad weekend.

Remember Jesus was moderately inconvenienced for our sins. Being immortal he couldn't die.
Last time I was at church the priest said Jesus was alive and still walked among us. Personally I think he was talking bollocks, I just think of being paid to be there!

Some people are dangerously delusional.

Yes, way to many are and unfortunately live among us.....

5

I’ve had gooder Fridays...but hope yours is grand.

😂🤗

And I can guarantee we all had a better Friday than Jesus did...ba dump dump.

@mojo5501 I think he took the day off...my lawn hasn’t been mowed.

5

Anyone who posted that to me would receive a severe response.

Like: "Take that spike and stick it where the sun don't shine" ....ha ha

@mojo5501 ouch!🤪

Yeah, I heard from a number of ‘believers’ who were quite upset with me when I referenced the joke about Jesus making a salon appointment to have his nails done. Apparently, not everybody shares my sense of humor. Fortunately, I have achieved the advanced age necessary to disregard the opinions of others. I thought it was funny.

I found this t-shirt at church my mom was going to when I was in college. I bought it because I thought it was ridiculous even though I was a believer back then. I don't know what happened to it. That was over 20 years ago, but it's an intense shirt and you can still get it online. Word of caution...it's bloody.

The sin of the world - bench press this! And his pain your gain! (wowza)

@mojo5501 I know. I decided to grab the images so no one has to go to the website.

@Olnoseven That graphic bloody hand with a spike in it is a conversation starter....or ender?....ha ha.

@mojo5501 Yeah...the thought Jesus as a bad-ass...seems...incongruous, but who am I to tell a church that? I wouldn't wear it now if I still had it. It would bring me the kind of "friends" I don't want.

Torture porn.

Think I would have googled an image of a hammer and nails and sent that back saying no, it was my hammer and nails.

Oh I keep that stuff in my thought bubbles.

4

Not as bad as Spain, where some poor bastard actually gets chosen to be nailed up...it is an honor, they say. It would be all over the TV stations today....bloody and in agony.

been there, but did not do that.

Correct me if I'm wrong BUT, this Hebrew character who claims to be the Son of God and is his own father, i.e.God incarnate, can raise people from the dead, walk on water, etc, etc, lets himself be nailed to 2 bits of wood and die when both knew full well that his 'sacrifice' wasn't really a sacrifice because he wouldn't be permanently dead anyway, 'dies' for OUR sins when the sperm and ova from which we are conceived were still non-existent anyway.
How, in the name of ALL logic and reason can that be?

I had a friend attack me because of the meme where Christ says What the Fuck when his followers called the day he was crucified “good.”

I feel I have to post this...

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up...

@OtherPatrick It was a miracle he didn't lose his tunic.

I saw this on Reddit yesterday and laughed my ass off.

Odds on it took more than 3 days to 'rise' that time....LOL.

He dived for our sins!

2

According to the dogma, none of us is without sin. So whoever told you this is just as complicit in knocking the nails in as you are.

2

How distasteful.

If you could only see this photo of the instruments of torture....placed in an odd way to showcase their purpose as if they were still life art...not a painting, not a cartoon...photography.

@mojo5501 Glad I missed it.

It sounds pretty gratuitous.

@Donotbelieve Well, I searched and found it so it's attached above if you are curious....

@mojo5501 I'll just let it, "passover".
Thank you. 🙂

I wonder if those same people who believe in this nonsense also believe that it was Kavanaughs sin and Trumps.

They are exempt...they were sent by god! Lol

2

Just remember not that long ago they would burn "witches" for crying out loud. I guess some christians in third world countries still do.

1

Okay, I found the meme so you all can see this image I'm trying to describe! [askideas.com]

Just glad it didn't have blood dripping off for added effect! Yikes.

And waving the instrument of torture all around...the cross.
