Don't date ****** (inappropriate word for black people), they'll probably end up robbing you.

Racism is a sickness, and this kind of talk is truly anti-Christian and vile. Please try to work to do a better job at controlling your own posting behavior. Such disgusting attitudes and 'advice' as displayed here are unacceptable. Please pray and seek spiritual counsel, lest you further wound the confession you claim in the eyes of others (who are, in case you have forgotten, created equal to you and equally beloved children of God), and your own soul by harboring such hatred and bigotry.

Amen!

I'm not sure what to say right now, except that I am very sorry for what I said about black people yesterday. It was rude, insulting, and totally untrue. I'm not even sure why I said that. I will be more artful of what I say and the words I use. That's all I can think of to say right now.

From a comedic tome (I found on my dad's bookshelf), written by an ex-Roman Catholic priest-turned-Protestant:

Quote
Best of all is for Protestant ministers to preach without ceasing to their people:  "Do not marry a Catholic.Do not permit yourself to fall in love with a Catholic, for love is unreasoning and lures its victims into thinking that they are exceptions to all rules and experiences.  Fear of the threats of the Church is greater than the love which a Roman Catholic girl or boy may profess for you.  This fear will win out in the end and rob you of your love and happiness as well as the eternal salvation of yourself and your unborn children. [author's emphasis]

Lehmann, L. H. "The Problems of Mixed Marriages." Out of the Labyrinth. Chino, CA: Chick Publications, 1982. 202. Print.

There you have it, folks.  If you marry a Roman Catholic, or even think of dating them, you're going to hell.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

How can your eternal salvation be robbed if you are part of the elect and predestined to be saved? Also, what are you supposed to do if you are predestined by God the marry a Catholic?  The plot thickens.  I think a Chick tract is needed to sort all this out.

Well, I'm not that desperate for sex, so I don't think I'll be checking those out.

Man, what a crazy night last night! Ok so I was at the bar and this really attractive woman came up and sat beside me. Now orthonorm and opus were in another part of the bar at the time. Anyway, so we start talking, and she's really attractive, but something about her was just off, like you could tell she was a little crazy. So I said I had to get back to my friends, and she was like "What's wrong, tiger? Don't you want this?" and I was like "Um, you're very attractive, but..." and she said "let me ask you something" and I said "ok..." and she said "It's my face, isn't it? You think I'm a butterface!" and I tried to assure her that that was not the case at all, that she had a very pretty face, but she wouldn't listen. Then she started crying, and I tried to put my arm around her to console her and she snapped at me like a wild beast "don't touch me you pathetic wretch!"  

Well, suffice to say I was taken aback, but she apologized immediately and said she didn't know what came over her. I said it was ok, that maybe she should go home and get some sleep. And she said "let me ask you another question, a very private question," and I said ok. So she said "Imagine your ultimate fantasy girl. It has to be someone real though. Like an actress. Who is she?" I was a bit confused, but she pressed me several times to name someone. So finally I said "I dunno, Emmanuelle Chriqui I guess". She said "Ahh" and then just sat there with a serious look on her face. Then she leaned in and whispered to me: "If I chopped her head off, and took her skin, and wore it like a mask over my head, would you then make love to me? Would I then be pretty enough for you?"

That was about all I could take? I jumped back and said "what are you talking about? are you crazy?" and she looked at me longingly and said "what is it that you want? just tell me what you want!" and she started clawing at me and sort of growling. Just then orthonorm and opus saw what was going on and they hurriedly pushed me out of the bar, and we raced to the car as this wild woman chased us, screaming "I need to feel like you love me! Make me feel like a woman!"  Well, we finally got to the car and she came up and started banging on the window, and we were saying "go go go" and she was spitting and hissing, but finally norm got the car started and we sped away. Whew, it was close, I'll tell ya!

Did you ever go back to that bar?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Backsliding, man, backsliding.

Although the Methodists, Anglicans, and Lutherans(?) don't believe in predestination, at least not as part of their "traditional" theologies".

As for my love life, it is still nonexistent. Hopefully, I'll be able to find someone once I get back to school this August.

This is born alone die alone, so my dialogue's dastardly
Life's a tragedy generator operating at max capacity

“I’ve lived to bury my desires,
And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that’s left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust.”
― Alexander Pushkin
