Reading comments on a news article are like huffing paint thinner.

Waste of time that'll only make you dumber.

Once we master space we can leave all them pray-ers behind
We'll be off to the stars to relax, drink and unwind

I try to avoid it at all costs, but sometimes against my best intentions I do. It's always terrible. Always.

They even think I'm going to hell for being Catholic. (nevermind that they believe that you are saved if you believe in Jesus)

it's almost like there is no correct answer and none of the religions got it right

Catholics have it right :p Just misinterpreted in the prior to the 17th century.
Gotta disagree. Too much emphasis on forgiveness - seems you can pretty much murder someone, and as long as you pray to jeebus and tell him you're sorry then you're off the hook. Not enough emphasis on trying to actually make yourself a decent person.

Mind you I was baptized Anglican and spent 10 years going to a catholic run school, got treated like shit because of it. My opinion is a bit biased to say the least.

Didn't Jesus hang out with murderers, thieves, and rapists? The issue with confession, is that you have to be genuinely sorry for committing that sin. Meaning you will try everything within your power to not do it again.

yet someone who has lived a good life and never had to apologize for a grave sin yet refuses to believe in the lord and savior doesn't get past the bouncer

just because the rapist/murderer/thief really meant it when he apologized doesn't mean he should get priority over the genuinely good person who simply doesn't believe in the religion.

I know that's not how all sects of christianity work but those that work like that are screwy. any supreme being that holds that kind of logic isn't a good deity

Didn't the Pope come out recently saying that athiests will be okay or something? (I only overheard this and never looked it up.)

Good Guy Pope, or Emperor Palpapope?

Edit: GGP, also apparently the Vatican corrected his statement (cause he is only the Pope, the fuck does he know?)

Yeah, publicly saying the infallible pope (chosen by god!) was wrong
Dirty atheists are going straight to hell
Certainly sounds live theyve got it right!
