Greatest site EVER.

A website dedicated to mocking the various aspects of the Christian faith. Certainly not a website I'd call "great."

The owner of the website had a major butthurt against Liberty U. I remember hearing about it. He got kicked out for some radio thing he did and now he's all butthurt. I think the site is kind of insulting, kind of funny too.

Fundamentalism should be mocked, for it's largely because of Fundamentalists that Christianity is despised throughout the world.

That website doesn't just mock Fundamentalism, though.

What does laughing at myself have to do with this?

Anywhere, here is a page with quite a few examples of where the site's satire goes beyond simply mocking Fundamentalsits and mocks the Bible and all of the Christian faith.

I was going to say, "Some," but let's take it in this direction.


What about vice versa? I think, at least here in the US, it's overwhelmingly true for how men want women to be as we were when we were 9 or 10.

No, only Pedobear wants that.

I've been told i suit a beard, although i keep mine well trimmed and tidy, i can't be doing with this wild man stuff its too unruly and itchy.My former work place used to put pressure on its workers to be clean shaven before every shift, however after a 2 week break i returned with a beard to which i got utterly slaughtered.

The management were pulling all sorts of '' rules '' from out under their backsides and threatening to send me home or dock my wages...

Despite this the ladies liked it and i found that the rule about people seeking help from beards to be true...when shaven i was invisible, when bearded i was the answer to everything...was surreal.

I have since kept the beard as frankly, i grew tired of being told what i can and cannot do with my own appearance.

I also noted the only people apart from egotistical management who had a problem with it, were the younger lads who were still spouting fluff and older guys who grew patches...

But in general nobody could care less, it was only a beard.
