    If you are going to publicly re-enact the suffering and humiliation of Jesus before the Crucifixion then abuse from the mob enhances the verisimilitude to the experience.

    If you take your faith seriously playing Jesus should not be a pleasant experience.

    I grew up in a background where Catholics were second class citizens and treated as such in every walk of life by Protestants.
    I come from a background with very strong connections still with the North of Ireland. I grew up seeing the aftermath of protestants dominating and discriminating against Catholics in the North in every possible way.
    In recent times there has been a kind of peace and both churches certainly have made huge efforts to meet each other regardless of what's going on politically at the moment or perhaps despite what's going on.

    I think the lowest common human denominator is intolerance combined with a tendancy to club together and target and abuse what is viewed as difference.

    Sea Star abandoned account, please demolish

    My local church is part of an organisation that campaigns to stop trans health care and make conversion therapy compulsory. And that is happening now. So I will take snipes at both Catholics and protestants, and anything in between.

    And while most people think this pope is tolerant - I see him regularly making inflammatory comments about trans people - and the murder rate of trans people in Catholic south America is off the charts.

    I do not campaign to harm christians, or even to prevent them from believing whatever it is they want to believe our practice what they want to practice. I'm not even an atheist any more, but I also hold beliefs and one of them includes the fact that Christianity from to to bottom is pure bollocks.

    That's quite funny - and probably led to innocent children asking their parents what bukkakke means. :D

    I know there’s some Christian Socialist tendencies but it leaves me flummoxed tbh. The philosophical underpinnings are completely different as are the practices. Apart from Charity (which the left does but calls it solidarity) I don’t see much crossover.
    Christianity teaches people to accept poverty, telling the have nots to not be jealous of their betters etc. There’s no avenue out of there (apart from death/heaven).
    There’s an interesting article on libcom about the Sally Army and how they fought with the IWW so different was their view points. I’m struggling to see how Christianity could be progressive without it ceasing to be Christianity.

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    When it comes to JFK the conspiracy story is that LHO assassinated him! It harder to believe than the truth.

    If christmas jumpers and '12 pubs of christmas' can be things, then so can a 'Stations Of The Cross' themed pub crawl.

    Its a joke at the end of the day. Is christianity that frail that it cant take a joke? if so, it hasn't achieved much in 2000 plus years, apart from causing endless wars, deaths of millions etc.
