Yeah,pure humbug.

When I was about 6, my mother told me to eat my crusts because of the starving children in Africa. I told mum she could send the starving children my crusts. Mum smacked me for being a little smart arse, which wasn't. I was simply being practical.


Praying and fasting,kneeling on broken glass,with a sand-paper covered pick handle stuck up your arse, PLUS $5,will get you a very ordinary cup of coffee.


Today I help children in Africa by sending MONEY via a secular charity; I don't trust church-based charities.

You've never read Statler's threads?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I'd have a bit more respect for them if they took the money they would have spent on that meal and donated it to a worthwhile charity - one that helps people become independent and doesn't waste money on bibles and preachers.

Oh boy...

Or, visit them, talk to them and physically help them with any of their concerns or needs?

I'm guessing that's grades? If that's so, FUCKING STUDY YOUR ASS OFF... Banging Head On Desk

Quote:Pray for good heath...

Or, exercise, eat right and quit bad habits like smoking etc.

Quote:Pray for harmony....

Or, be nice to people instead of condemning them to hell.

Quote:Pray for the mother earth...

Or, recycle and reuse, and don't waste.

Quote:Pray for the underprivileged ones...

Or, throw a steak at a pile of em and watch em fight, feeding the poor.

Do these people realize that 50% of the food our country produces goes to waste anyway? By not eating, you aren't helping anyone. You're just wasting more food. It seems like that would piss off starving foreigners a lot more than say, actually trying to help them.

What falls away is always, and is near.

Also, I am not pretending to be female, this profile picture is my wonderful girlfriend. XD
