Recommended Posts

Its that time again where bunnies, candies, and baskets come together on Jesus is back from the dead day Today is a day that us as atheists/ ex- Christians need to celebrate why we are athesist's. Today (some of you in Europe its Easter now) is the day is that we dine in hell and have fucking fun time. :wicked: I am not celebrating Easter (didn't last year) and not going to church either. This thread is a varation of Sunday Heathen Katch except what makes this different what are you doing today as sin that the Cheezus washed away. This thread is meant to a fun thread since when we have been on serious topics for a while.

So what are your plans to celebrate today as a day as an unbeliever. Going to have some pork? Watch porn? Piss a few Christians off....

I'm going to work (I'm a waitress part time) from 11-dinner close. I'm going to make lots of money, and I'm going to end the day with a big fattie and a couple glasses of wine. My husband and I successfully managed to ignore the in-laws this year (mainly his parents, we live with my mom) and we refused to go to church tomorrow, or any other day their stupid passion play was going on. We are both working tomorrow, so we also got out of the family dinner. Boo-yeah! B)

 

It's going to be a normal day, but it will feel good not having to genuflect on the crucifixion and resurrection every waking moment.

I'm sleeping in! Then I'm going to eat chocolate. I'm gonna bite the ears off a chocolate bunny and blitz out on candy.

Then I'm probably going to look at porn and celebrate spring as nature intended. :)

 

My Christian roomie invited me to service, but I politely declined. It was kind of funny, tonight we were making dinner and she just sent me part of an erotica story she's writing, and she was saying "I'm having problems writing "those" scenes because part of me is going 'It's Easter, I shouldn't be thinking about that stuff!"

 

I grinned at her and said, "You DO know it's the time of year most cultures CELEBRATED that kind of stuff, don't you?"

 

She gave me a half dirty, half amused look.

 

No "being good" for tomorrow thinking about the extremely depressing topic of some guy getting murdered for me. Just lots of quality time with myself indulging. Ahhhhhh....

Even when I was Catholic, I was the only practising one in my family, so we never really did anything for Easter. Usually we'd go for a nice walk or something in the country simply because no-one was working and the weather's always nice this time of year. But as my dad's working today I'll spend the day lounging around thinking "OMG...3 weeks til my exams...I really should start revising" but read, watch TV, eat, drink tea, smoke and play tetris instead. :grin: So pretty much a normal day in the holidays.

 

The only difference being that, for the first time in a few years, I haven't spent upwards of 8 hours at church between Maundy Thursday and Easter Saturday. I was planning on going anyway for the general coolness of the ritual and all...but, though it doesn't cut into going out with my mates or watching TV or sleeping 10 hours a day, revision really gets in the way of going to church. :HaHa:

 

It's going to be a normal day, but it will feel good not having to genuflect on the crucifixion and resurrection every waking moment.

 

:scratch: I suppose so...that would really hurt your knees. :HaHa:

I'm having fun playing World of Warcraft as usual. The fundies would probably hate me since my character is a female human warlock (currently level 42). Warlocks are a magic user class and get to summon demon minions. They are the best class if you like to solo, which I do. Of course, the fact that it's just a game and not real is usually lost on fundies because they can't tell the difference between reality and fantasy.

 

My alt is an undead rogue, level 10. I should play her for a while today.

 

This is the second year in a row that I've stayed home for easter instead of celebrating with relatives and doing the religious thing. I love it.

It's like every other Sunday In my house. Relaxing and cleaning. This is the first year I didn't do Easter baskets for the kids, they wanted to skip it and put it toward vacation. I'll get a few Chocolate bunnies when they go on clearance tomorrow! :HaHa:

Yeah, I decided that I'd be really extra sinful today and go to a church and harass the preacher and walk up to the pulpit and shout "Jesus was possessed by a demon".

 

Well, we would all love to do something like that for a laugh, hey? In reality, instead of celebrating the beauty of our risen Lord, I am enjoying the beauty of our natural world. Okay, Leeds, where I've been most of the day is hardly a beautiful place, but later on I am intending to drive to a nearby nice small town and go for a walk.

 

I'm having bacon later on, I don't know if that's sinful or not.

 

Going off on a tangent slightly, I guess it is strange how normal grown men can call Jesus beautiful and lovely. If heaven existed, I seriously doubt they'd be looking into Jesus eyes and calling him beautiful beyond description. Anyway..

 

at least I love myself, that's better than Jesus loving me anyday. Something to be happy about at Eastertime.

Let's see.... today we woke up and my toddler looked for the 6 easter eggs we hid. We didn't put anything inside them because she's psyched about the eggs themselves. After that I sat down, had a cup of coffee, ate some oatmeal and umm well now I'm here.

 

I'll most likely nap in a few when DD naps. Maybe watch a movie? It's cold out and I'm pissed about that! I wish it was more spring like outside so we could enjoy being outside and going for a walk.

I was quite annoyed on Friday that I've become a vegetarian since I left Catholicism. Otherwise I would have had several different types of meat for every single meal. :HaHa:

 

Especially given that my extended family, most of whom haven't been to Mass for ages and probably haven't been to Confession in 30 years, refuse to eat meat on Good Friday.

 

My aunt, who hasn't to my knowledge set foot inside a church since her grandson's christening several months ago, was adamant that she would never intentionally eat meat on Good Friday and had to rationalise accidentally eating a sausage roll. Go figure. :shrug:

 

Of course, the fact that on Good Friday all healthy adults are meant to eat only one meal, not just abstain from meat, and that Friday penance is still supposed to apply to every Friday of the year make no difference. Nor do rules against sex outside of marriage, divorce, remarriage, Mass, Confession etc etc etc.

 

Gotta love those cultural Catholics. :HaHa:

LOL!

 

I've never yet met a modern Catholic who only eats one meal on Good Friday. I doubt any of them even know that's what they are supposed to be doing.

 

I've been cutting back on meat myself for health reasons, but I'm not vegetarian. However, I have seriously considered going pescatarian. Restaurants certainly don't make it easy to be vegetarian these days, most of them only offer fish as their "vegetarian" choice. :rolleyes:

Well, after I got off work this morning (I work nights at Wally World; I get off about 0630), I came home, ate some reese's eggs, pizza, and drank a couple beers.

 

I won't do anything outside b/c it's icy and snowing right now, so I'll just surf a little more on the net and go to bed with a nice book at about 1100.

Oh yeah eating bacon or anything pork related that is one hellful sin, that is equal to murder, rape, blasphemy against the lawd because remember all sins are equal in Gods eyes. Got to love that justice system. Pork is the most evil thing since Satan in the Old Testament...so if you eat you are clearly saying " Fuck You" to God and don't want to follow his rules.

 

I saved a sausage from last night just for today and it is just a slap in the face at religion. By the way I joke woke up, usually I would be getting ready for church. My plans today work on an essay due tommorow first, study for math test tommorow, look at porn ( I actually remember feeling guilty long time ago, but not no more :grin: ) I am going to rest and kick back and enjoy life for what its worth,

Today will be pretty much like every other Sunday for me. Sleep late. Do laundry. Otherwise, I pretty much laze around. The thing that is different this Sunday though is that I'm usually watching one or all of NASCAR, NHRA or Indy racing. But dammit, they all take Easter off.

So... I was raised Protestant (Pentecostal) and we didn't do the whole "no meat on Good Friday" thing. Would someone mind telling me the reason for that?

 

And, unfortunately, I went to church this morning, by choice. Why? To please my family. They don't know of my apostacy, and they worry about my soul because I never go to church, ever, so I figured I'd do it. Shut them up for a little while.

However, I didn't sing or pay attention to the sermon. And there were no hot guys, which sucked.

 

I came home, made pancakes and now I'm going to relax for awhile and later on this evening I'm going out for supper with one of my friends. :)

 

Maybe I'll have an alcoholic drink at supper as a slap in the face to Pentecostalism. :)

Today I slept in, ate lots of chocolate and later will be getting rather merry with some wine. Of course, all the while feeling fantastic that I didn't spend this morning or Friday morning in church. We also successfully managed to avoid the hot-cross bun ministry going on outside the local church on Saturday...."Hey do you want a hot-cross bun or a cup of coffee?...GREAT! whilst you're munching that we'll talk to you all about Jebus"...that kinda thing :rolleyes:

There's not much for me to rebel against so far as Easter goes. We Old Order Mennonites never had a problem with eating pork any day of the week. We never fasted on Good Friday. In fact, having fresh maple syrup and homemade donuts and taffy at Grandma's is what we used to do when I was little. Grandma passed away long ago and my family did not have a maple bush so maple syrup and donuts sort of went the way of the dinosaur.

 

I know of a devoute Catholic who sometimes fasts all day on Good Friday--my cousin's husband. I found out about that this Good Friday. This was a year when he decided to do that. She's modern Mennonite but he's RC.

 

What did I do so far? Sleep in till noon to make up for the insomnia earlier this week and now I'm on here. Plans are to get a bit more work done on my paper due later this month. Go for a walk if I can work up the energy.

 

And--Pagan or Christian Easter--today is hardly the day to celebrate spring unless there is something to celebrate about daffodils and snowdrops and crosuses that are snowed under. I think they will survive but don't know for sure. Snow flurries have been sweeping through the backyard for days now. Our early spring sort of just disappeared, the early flowers closed up tight, and winter's back.

Why can't Christians eat pork on Easter Sunday? Never heard that one. :scratch:

Well, since Friday is supposedly the day Jesus died, Catholics are meant to do a penance of some sort every Friday (unless it was a special feast day like Christmas or Saint ____'s Day or whatever). This used to be that they weren't allowed to eat meat, but now they can choose any penance they like. However, on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday Catholics are meant to fast, which, as far as I recall, means having one normal-sized meal and two snacks instead of the other two meals, no meat and nothing else in between.

 

But a lot of Catholics just abstain from meat, which doesn't include fish.

NOTE- I never once did the pork thing I just know in the Jewish culture at least it is bad, I think some Christian denomenations do it to also.

 

BUT the reason why eating pork is a sin, is because it is just is....anyway here is the verse.

 

(Deuteronomy 14:8).The pig, because it divides the hoof but does not chew the cud, it is unclean for you. You shall not eat any of their flesh nor touch their carcasses (New American Standard)

Hm. Interesting. Thanks for the explanation! :)

Though oddly enough, most of them abstain from meat except for fish anyway. :rolleyes:

My last post today:

 

Today I worked on my essay's for school and studied for a math test. I looked at some good soft core porn with girls having fun with each other in a hot tub.... :wicked: man that stuff sure makes the day better and they said it was from Satan.

 

I ate Panda Express for dinner and I am going to watch CSI, and today is an awesome day not being a Christian. I hope everyone had a good day today and enjoyed it without the Christian influence.

I pretty much stayed at home, exercised with Denise Austin, went for a few groceries, made lunch, did some school work, watched some TV, and so on. My husband took the boys to morning and evening services at church, but he missed S.S. and was late for the morning service. The pastor actually waited to start the service until they got there because he wanted to give him another lecture while the singing was going on. They had the Lord's supper in the morning, too. Supposedly he read some verses to my husband about people falling away (from Hebrews 10, I think) and seems to think that over a 2 week period sometime is when something happened to make me leave the faith. I don't know what he's talking about because it took several years and it was very gradual. He thinks that if they can figure out why I changed then maybe they can fix it.

Oh, well, I didn't expect to be left alone yet.
