  • i thought this might interest some people.....


    students in america are handing out free porn in exchange for bibles to make the point that the bible encourages people to treat women like shit.


    i think it's a brilliant idea! :D

  • :rolleyes:


    Another bit of childishness on a par with some of Dawkin's comments :(

    "The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do."

  • I don't understand what stunts like this are supposed to achieve. I don't believe it's order to initiate debates or discussions - it's just to pointlessly offend and piss off Christians.

  • Quote from nessnessinadress

    I wonder what these "students" would say about the qu'ran? Oh wait I bet they are all far too "p.c" to say anything at all.


    From what I've read of the qu'ran it's not broadly dissimilar to the bible....:whistle:


    That was strange - I hit the quote button on ness's post and that bit that I've put in quotes didn't come out....and I tried it three times so I had to manually quote it.

  • Yes some is the same (of the old testament anyway). That is sort of the point I was making.
    But I unlike those idiots do not want to go around offending people , which is why I originally deleted that part of the post and why you could not quote me.

    Ah - that explains it - I was trying to quote it whilst you were in the middle of deleting.....

  • Ness, many of them do criticise the quran as well.


    Either way, I'm used to the 'militant atheist' brigade being ridiculously arrogant, belligerent and pathetic, but even for them this is fucking low. Just what exactly do they think stunts like this are going to achieve?!

  • Well that really does show just how naive you can be I'm afraid. I know quite a few things about Elliott that are extremely far from "lovely" - especially concerning some of the ways he's treated women. You should learn to look beneath the surface. :)


    I'm worried now. Don't know what to say to that.

    Its the "Jackass" approach to religious debate :( The intellect of the Surf Serf :S

    "The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do."

  • But all people have said basically is that they are idiots and they are wasting their time?



    Ah but any publicity is good publicity... or whatever the quote is...?? :S


    From their point of view it probably is anyway :)

  • But all people have said basically is that they are idiots and they are wasting their time?


    Depends on how you define 'wasting their time' - if ...as PlutoPete says...they wanted to get their message discussed around the world they haven't wasted their time because they're succeeding!


    Not everyone will agree with their message but they're certainly getting it broadcast.

  • But all people have said basically is that they are idiots and they are wasting their time?


    They've used a gimmick to get the subjegation of women in religious texts discussed throughout the world, even if only a tiny percentage agree with them they have succeeded on a massive scale.

  • Porn?? Ye, cause THAT treats women well huh???

    Yup, because, you know, that was never being discussed already.....

    "The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do."

  • I think handing out pr0n on moral grounds is an oxymoron. :S
    Presumably they paid for it, and therefore bought into what it represents, whatever their alleged reasoning.


    'twas what i was thinking.... now loads of people who might not have bought it have easy access to pron. how empowering for women.
    let's hand out leather in exchange for fur because we hate animal cruelty too :rolleyes:

    we reenact Noah's ancient drama, but in reverse, like a film running backwards, the animals exiting

  • T'be honest I found the response from the Christian guy a bit odd as well, because he states that some sex-ed books he dug out from his garage were influenced by Aleister Crowley (a Satanist mason, his words), plus he decided to youtube himself shredding a couple of sex self-help books and burning them in his garden. Surely there's a bit of a difference between the modern day equivelent of "The Joy of Sex" and a porn mag? :S


    (He also states he wouldn't want his 6 year old daughter finding "that kind of book", well I found my parents copy of "The Joy of Sex" when I was about six and the only thing that interested me was why the womans armpits were hairy! LOL :p)

  • are these the same idiots that pulled that london bus stunt which has meant i now cannot go into any train station without being reminded that jesus' blood is on my hands or other fear mongering nonsense
    because they really ruined my travel experiences the numptys
