So easy, even a liberal atheist can do it!
Or, you may select the $5/month Paypal option, and we will hire homeless people to go to public libraries and vote, both saving you the effort and assuaging your guilt. This makes your donation fully tax deductible. And, using the newly enacted ACORN multiplier, you actually get a $3 deduction for each dollar donated!

What about moderate believers who's world view might be considered heretical by some mainstream religions?

Guess it's easy enough for them too.

I've heard it said that if you vote 2^666 times, that it will get you out of Purgatory. 8)

Ah, good old Catholocism. They say you don't join that religion, that you are drafted at birth, and this is in large part true, but I do find myself at the far extreme of dissenters*1 in that particular faith. I could go on (do tell?) but I shan't except to note that purgatory doesn't have any actual biblical basis, from my study of the topic.

So, I gave up that particular doctrine for Lent.

*1(I have mixed feelings about the Papal ban on birth control, being the 10th pregnancy, I sort of owe my existence to that one..)

I swear I read "Paypal ban on birth control" and thought, "Wha???"

So, does the Alley thing work once per calendar month, or once every thirty days ish? Cuz I voted rather late in February.



Normal Catholics know not to take the Pope too seriously. That's the difference between Catholics and Protestants. *badumching*

Looks like calendar month to me. So if you voted last week, vote again this week.

I think you've got it wrong. Doesn't that make normal Catholics Protestants?

In my (admittedly limited) experience, Protestants take the Pope so seriously it hurts. The admittedly limited part of my experience has to do with the Catholic side of the equation, rather than the Protestant side. I've spent most of my life around Protestants and amongst the people I've encountered, it's not uncommon to hear the Pope seriously referred to as the anti-Christ, respect toward the Pope seen as idolatry, 90% of the more formal elements of the practice of Catholicism as demonic, Catholicism as being a large cult ... and so on.

Of course, a lot of these folks thought the Chick tracts were sensible, honest, and well-researched so I may have just hit on a particularly well-enveloped pocket of crazy. But my family moved a number of times when I was a kid and we didn't stick to the same denomination or anything.

Yea, the Revelation footnote in my mother's family bible states that the reference to "The whore of Babylon" was to the Catholic Church. I guess they figured they could get away with saying that because everyone knows Catholics aren't permitted to read the bible.

*sigh*

On the other hand, some folks believe the Popes are mummified so they'll be extra vital at the resurrection when Jesus will call on them like a crew of super powered priests to ... do something vague that I'm going to pretend is similar to Voltron. It doesn't sound serious, but I'm sure it's serious for someone.

My sources on this, if not actually the History Channel, are no better than.

There are crazy people everywhere. And they look just like you and me. :o

Sounds like an awesome graphic novel to me.

Wow. Not that I mind my thread being hijacked with religious babbling... Just remember that this is supposed to be the Church of Norm thread. Pass the plate.

Maybe now 11.

Interestingly (or not) searching of "Drabble" on that site brings back

HippieCast
Wash the Bowl


but not "The Drabblecast"


If you search for "Drabblecast", you're good, but the title and text seems to have XHTML codes presented in it (at least on FF / Linux). Don't know if that's affecting the search.
It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.
