How old is everybody here? Just wondering what the general age group is. Don't have to say if you don't want to, I know some peeps are worried about stalkers and what not. You could just say high school or something, or nothing at all.

Well I know "The machine" can take years OFF your life.


message 29: by Robert (new)

Robert (rgbatduke) | 213 comments Which machine? Computers? Cars? TVs?

In the machine age, life expectancy has easily doubled. If I had lived in the 1600's, I probably wouldn't have reached the age of 53 at all, instead of looking forward to another decade or three of life, with luck.

And I was kidding about trading years... I like being my age.

That's messed up. I would rip the throat out of anyone who would try that on a child I care about.




message 39: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) I know. Lots of his recent posts are stories about people handing Bibles to kids outside of their school and other crap.

Well, I don't see anything wrong with just giving them Bibles. I mean, they could take it home and throw it away! And if it was a Book of Mormon or The Koran or whatever, so what? But the luring into the van thing....Not sure what that's about!
It's like handing them a pamphlet on suicide or about a concert. They don't have to read it.


message 41: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) The point is, schools are public, secular institutions, and kids are considered a captive audience by law, and by law, you cannot promote religion to a captive audience.

Well I think promoting to a captive audience would be allowing a preacher come in and give a sermon to the entire school.

If they are outside the school just offering them books and not forcing them to take them, I don't see the big deal.


message 43: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) They were. They ambushed the bus route. It's disturbing to see people have to sink so low to convince unprepared children, because that is all they can convince.

Erm, okay then! You were just talking about the movie and then said something about the cloak so I thought it was related. :)

Yes I know. But if they didn't, would you have a problem?

IO can imagine alot of people that would kill them if they tried to do that to me Suzi or Carmella.




message 48: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) The problem is, replace "bible" with "communist manifesto" or "satanic bible" and NOW people will be annoyed.

I'm pretty sure that one day, if you were a mother, you would have a pretty serious problem with me standing outside your small child's school, handing them little pamphlets on why the Bible isn't true. Especially if they were really young and impressionable.

It's an assholish move regardless of the intent.



message 50: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) It's teaching them what to think, not how to think.
