Stupid things the religious say
A guy on twitter a day or two ago said that when you masturbate you're actually having sex with demons and impregnating them and making more demons. Dodgy

 Really.I didn't know that. Good thing I wasn't aware at 14.   

The priests didn't say anything stupid about masturbation, such as "you'll go blind" . Indeedly doodly not, they only said it's a mortal sin and if you haven't confessed you're going straight to hell . Perfectly reasonable and compassionate. Tongue

At 16 I found this book "The Psychology Of Sex" by Havelock Ellis. (1859-1939) . He said  it's the abnormal boys who DON'T masturbate. He said it's impossible to masturbate too much . Now THAT was a big relief. 

Havelock Ellis was a bit like the curate's egg. He also claimed homosexuality  is a perversion , and explained how it can be cured.   As this was 1963 that sounded about right to me ,as a 16 year old chronically catholic schoolboy .  This was at the time when homosexual acts were  illegal and 'poofter bashing' was a national sport. 


As John Spong says, Churches are in the guilt and control business.

I still get, "We wish you would go to church and at least try it again." once in a while from my parents.  Never ends.

I used to get the same from my parents for a while after I came out as an atheist in 1985. Ironically, now whenever a family member has a question about religion, they come to me for answers, knowing that as an autodidact I have extensive knowledge on religions as well as a private library with 500+ books on religion.

That was probably caused by his rampant drug use if anything.

When I was in grade school (third grade I think), we had a discussion on Christ's resurrection. The nun who taught religion remarked that non-believers tried to dismiss the Resurrection, claiming that the Apostles had merely stolen Jesus' body from the tomb under cover of darkness. "This was impossible," she continued, "because one of Pilate's soldiers guarding the tomb had a gun."  Facepalm

My mother not to bash her, she was brought up poorly and what can you do? 
But she told me that there is science behind god, and explained something I don't remember. 
And I said no mom that's called "Phesudo science" it's fake, there is no actual proof behind it, only wishing internally she'd understand but of course not. 
The conversation moved on. 
Also had my relative try to tell me that ken hams ark was really going to float. 
And I told her they only built half of it (this is before the rest got turned into a building) 
And she went completely silent. Then i got some kinda "God" answer as if he's gonna help. Watching people do this to themselves is understandable, cause it's scary. But it's also sad.

Lol -- that was my thought exactly. I've never been asked "were you there?". But I'm itching to be, because I want to ask, "Were YOU?"

I used to debate stupid Christians online but I stopped because I got so damned pissed at their willful ignorance. A couple of times I did use that argument (were you there?)  but  they dismissed it out of hand and circled around to "the gospel writers witnessed it and that's good enough for me."  So then I'd go down the rabbit hole of explaining that the gospels weren't eyewitness accounts, etc.  and then we'd go back and forth on the that subject forever.  The whole thing was exhausting but I hope people on the fence regarding Christianity were reading the conversation and maybe questioned some of the Bible's farfetched, silly claims.   Yeah,  Girl_yes2 .
