4/30    Who would Jesus torture?  Answer here:
        \_ http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/04/30/religion.torture/index.html
           (According to religious people)
        \_ Nazis. http://www.badkarmaproductions.com/jc/?p=35
           (According to religious people)
        \_ God tortures unrepentant sinners -- see references to Hell.
           \_ This is controversial, to say the least.
           \_ Not to mention, but it is complete and total blasphemy
              for people to assume the place of God.  "Judge not, lest
              ye be judged".  I'm beginning to think that the most rabid
              bible-thumping Christians are actually serving Satan.

12/28   Looking for a religiousness density map based on county. Is there
        one out there?
        \_ Try http://search.census.gov/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&affiliate=census&query=religion+by+county
           \_ Public Law 94-521 prohibits us from asking a question on religious
              affiliation on a mandatory basis; therefore, the Bureau of the Census
              is not the source for information on religion.

12/5    Why the hell are there so many Christians in the Fremont area?
        \_ Really?  I know there are a lot of Chinese- and Indian-Americans.
           Fremont is also the city with the highest Afghan- population in the
           U.S., but their numbers are no match to the Chinese- and Indian-
           there.

8/21    I'm trying to negotiate rent renewal and my manager came
        back saying she can't do that due to Fair Housing Laws
        that states that if they adjust price for one person
        they need to adjust price for everyone else. Is this
        an actual law or some bullshit she just made up?
        \_ Probably bullshit.

INTERACTIVE Decrease font Decrease font Enlarge font Enlarge font WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new survey. The Washington Region Religious Campaign Against Torture rallied on Capitol Hill in March 2008. The Washington Region Religious Campaign Against Torture rallied on Capitol Hill in March 2008. More than half of people who attend services at least once a week -- 54 percent -- said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is "often" or "sometimes" justified. Only 42 percent of people who "seldom or never" go to services agreed, according to the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified -- more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Pew Research Center survey of 742 American adults conducted April 14-21. It did not include analysis of groups other than white evangelicals, white non-Hispanic Catholics, white mainline Protestants and the religiously unaffiliated, because the sample size was too small. torture against suspected terrorists in order to gain important information can often be justified, sometimes be justified, rarely be justified, or never be justified?" advertisement Roughly half of all respondents -- 49 percent -- said it is often or sometimes justified. religious group most likely to say torture is never justified was Protestant denominations -- such as Episcopalians, Lutherans and Presbyterians -- categorized as "mainline" Protestants, in contrast to evangelicals. Just over three in 10 of them said torture is never justified. A quarter of the religiously unaffiliated said the same, compared with two in 10 white non-Hispanic Catholics and one in eight evangelicals.

October 22nd, 2008 at 1:11 am The best part of this front-page is at first you can only see gun-blasting Jesus, and you wonder, Hmmm, who's he shooting at?" That's the concept behind the latest biweekly web comic by Eric Peterson and Ethan Nicolle and published by Bad Karma Productions. The story begins with God returning to heaven after a prolonged absence and Jesus gets into a fight with Him over whether or not he should be stopping suffering on the Earth. God, who is ambivalent toward the suffering of people and doesn't want to intervene in the affairs of mortals, leaves again and Jesus runs off to kick Nazi ass and prevent WWII. May 30th, 2009 at 6:37 pm I wonder if Jesus finds it entertaining. I have serious doubts that he would want to be portrayed this way, even in the comics. He doesn't get offended when someone makes fun of him, though, because he understands humans a lot better than most of them think. Those who do, however, will be required to explain why, when the time comes.
