Let's be positive about religion



From Wikipedia:
Pat Condell is an English stand up comedian and writer. He has caused controversy with outspoken monologues on YouTube denouncing religion and promoting the cause of atheism.

His 2006 stand up show ‘Faith Hope and Sanity’, subtitled ‘A Few Jokes About Religion Before It Kills Us All’, was a platform for his comedy and atheist beliefs. He said of the show "It seems to me that fundamentalist Christians, jihadist Muslims and settlement-building Jews are causing more than their share of trouble in the world. World events are being driven by people with apocalyptic delusions, while here in Britain a paralyzing liberal guilt allows religious bigots to use intimidation and violence to stamp out free speech. If you can’t get laughs out of all that, you can’t get them out of anything."

Did someone say this guy was a comedian?

Always good for a laugh - an outstanding monologue! Clearly, Pat Condell has a “merry heart”!

DUG said...

YES, I like this guy 'quite-a-lot' (but NOT in 'that-way'.....(yet-LMAO)

However, I would like to say something 'completely-politically-Incorrect' regarding the statemnet/s'

I have had a difficult-time voiceing these opinions, simply because I actually do NOT AGREE with some of their conclusions/s

However, I feel that at least 'SOME' of the premises just-may-be worthy of inclusion/s within this "genre".

It's a "given" that 'some-men' are 'NOT-BLESSED' with a "regular-sized-penis'.

Please know that (as-far-as-I've-been-told) that I DO NOT 'fall-into' this "class'-of penis-size)

(Hopefully,......AND,.....THANKFULLY,....LMFAO)

One has to 'wonder-about the ones that DO 'fit-into' this catagory-?

Would YOU NOT want something that actually FIT the size of Your Penis-?

I KNOW, that I most-certainly WOULD,... (and-DO)

Pat Condell is teh awesome^_^ He needs his own show, or at least a segment on one. To have this kind of good humor regarding religion without resorting to profanity (very often, anyway) earns my respect and admiration.

oh, I'm sorry.

I was just (trying-to) make the point that "saying-something-positive" about "religion" was somewhat akin-to "saying-something-positive" about "child-molestation".

I agree that it's a "stretch",.but, that's pretty-much how I personally feel about the subject. (religion)

I can find NO redeeming-qualities about "religion" in the same way that I can find NO redeeming-qualities about child-molestation.

I hope that clears things up-?

DUG said...

Sorry, my point was that "saying-something-positive" about "religion" seems to me to be somewhat akin to "saying-something-positive" about child-molestation.

BTW

I do NOT support either proposition. LOL

I am truly glad that there is a "Pat Condell" in the world, and not merely because I might be inclined to agree with several of his statements.

No, the reason lies purely in his methods - yes, the very methods for which he draws an incredible amount of fire on YouTube.

You see, I seem to happen upon too many Christian apologists who employ Pat's very same, slightly-shady methods: lathering their sentiments in emphatic and slightly condescending tones in order to persuade listeners.

I utterly despise people who sound too sure of themselves, you see. For it is clear that being too hardened in ones' views is NOT a virtue. I have no time for salesmen of any kind, approaching me with their practiced speeches and cock sure claims.

So, I am simply glad there is a Pat Condell out there who is giving those salesmen for Christ a taste of their own stubborn, rock-hard dismissiveness.

I thought he was hilarious- I love that subtle english humor!

Mandy said...

I've had a change of heart, so I am going to be positive about religion.

From this day forward I am positive that I will never return to it.
