Well, that's the only information you're giving me to work with here. You need to get some vices, ie. give up being so straight edge. At least try some psychedelics. :)

the world would be a better place without crazy radical evangelical Christians. Religion can be a good thing it was just hijacked by crazy people. I'm catholic and if you don't believe in god thats fine with me I won't ridicule you or try to convert you.

Now, let's see. Lent is a catholic tradition which commemorates the suffering Jesus took to for the sins of the world....I guess I'll give up bubble gum.

I'm giving up my prudishness and moral superiority.

My New Year's resolution was actually to be a terrible person this year. I'd hoped it would be one that I could finally keep. Gah.

I'm giving up trying to understand organized religion's continued appeal, and the hypocrisy that lies within them all. Spirituality, good living, and self control make much more sense.

I'll say "hallelujah", but in a completely ironic way. Y'dig?

As I've mentioned before, I like what Jesus stood for, I'm just not too keen on his fan club...

Yupp. Like when the preacher lady talks about seeing Palestinian kids trained to go off and die for their religion, and how she wants to bring that to Christianity...it made me sick to my stomach...literally.

Radicalism, fundamentalism.......as Ferris would say, ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself.

I'm neither Catholic nor any other religion, but I did give up soda a month ago. Not sure how long I'll keep that up for.

Pretty much just did it because I can't afford both Coachella and the dentist, and one is considerably more fun than the other.

Try drinking a full glass of water and taking an ibuprofen (or two) before you crash out.

I just read and realized this. And can you believe that earlier in the day I was ignorant enough to tell someone that they had something on their face?

A pregnant woman at that. Hello religious sensitivity.

I love Jesus like a motherfucker.
