  1. Re: "God Loves Gays" Billboard Rejected In Utah

    Appealing to popular bigotry makes business sense, Hitler did it and we was hugely successful (well for a time anyway), certain businesses thrived using this same amoral/immoral model, but they've...

    It's even more clear that eating pork is a sin of the highest caliber, but people just pick and choose which commandments they want to follow. It's no more "sinful" to be gay than to eat pork, or...

  5. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    That isn't exactly true. From a western perspective, it seems or appears to be the de facto reality, but that is because of religious history here, it is not the reality of all religions. Buddhism is...
  6. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    The opinion of one philosopher does not a religion make. Hitchens took the ten and made it 3, George Carlin made it one. There's no dogma here.

    Oh irony. Spear headed by comedians: that makes sense.
    But still: atheism is not a religion in the same way theism is not a religion.

  8. Re: The Lord Inquisitor - "Grey Knights" Teaser

    I'm glad they got a proper voice actor this time, or at least a talented amateur, the first trailer looked amazing, but damn that voice acting was awful. This is 100% perfect, I'm so happy.

    The Sarissa head on it's own weighed as much as a short sword, the flexing of the pole reduced power of the thrust for sure, but the force of a "thrown" sword (on what is essentially a semi-rigid...
