I have many friends from my past on my facebook. This particular guy used to date women when we all knew he was gay. I'm not sure when, but at some point in the last 10 years he came out and is openly gay. He has two teenaged children (both with children out of wedlock--which I don't personally believe is bad, but considering the source... let's just pretend).

So he posts this video yesterday:

Login | Facebook

I was totally ready for some mocking video and watched--given the SOURCE.

You simply must watch the video to understand. I can't interpret it for you.

But there are so many lines in the video that seem to be mocking christianity on the whole.

Only, apparently, it's not.

So, homeboy said he was part of the 7%.

WHAT?!?!?!

So they have made a whole video out of that stupid chain letter status garbage "If you love Jesus (or whatever they decide to declare) repost this Only a few of you will, lets see who you are."

I have noticed the people that post those status and join the "Jesus is lord" groups or post about god in every few posts, or all of them, are typically only in it for show. Outside of the show they will be the first to stab you in the back, cheat on a spouse, neglect their children, or any of those things. They do typically go to church a lot though. That of course is part of the show. I just don't get why you would want to live like that.

Those are the type of people I like to remind of this bible passage (Matthew 6:5-6):
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

It said "like magic" that's why I thought it was a joke!

Let us not forget that the new wife was "the only survivor" from another shipwreck! **** all those poor souls!

I can't stand those types of videos... same with all the chain e-mails. It is all fantasy and people just suck it up and pretend like there is meaning in it.

Facebook needs a dislike button. And they need a way to add comments to the "xxxxxx like Let's see if there are 5 million people on FB who believe in God! Press Like if you do! on ♥"

Gag me with a spoon!

Wonder if the poor woman's hubby told her he was responsible for her shipwreck.

It is stupid, pointless and insane.

It's like a darn ranking system!

If you click "like" then you can be in our group. Ah, it is a stupid clique.

Bah.
Who cares. We're all gonna die, and who knows what happens to us in the after life, but darn it...if God really existed, he wouldn't work this way...This mentality of killing many to save a few, is so man thought!

I always hated when I was a kid, my mother always made me 'fear' God so that I could live life in fear, and in 'check' pfft...You shouldn't live in fear of God. You should live freely and happy. I think that's what controlling humans want you to feel...they just want to control any who are too stupid and gullible, and afraid.

God shouldn't be faced at the Gates of Heaven in fear. :/

Anyway. Stupid facebook and it's stupid 'likes'...Or actually...Stupid religion!
