@pe7erpark3r Specific to Christianity, I think my biggest misgiving can be summed up in the parable of the Prodigal Son. The younger son gets his inheritance early and spaffs it away on hedonism. The older son has to continue toiling the fields. Now, I get the overall message. Forgive the younger son for being a d1ck and forgive the older son for his bitterness because they both get swallowed up in the greater meaning of God.
But at the same time ...it seems like very, very basic common sense to treat people's human sensibilities with respect. Imagine if the older son represented, say, the entirety of the working class of England (what's left of it). Imagine them flinging their hands in the air and saying, "Right, Dad, you're getting no more work from us".
Society would collapse in a malaise of hedonism and conceit (and if we carry on at this rate, it will really happen)
I mean, under those circumstances, Christianity would still be an incredibly important thing, perhaps still the most important thing in the world, but at the same time, I personally have got nothing to relate to. Which is not a criticism of Chritianity at all, it's just my personal thinking.
Topic -- was it just poor man's 'Picnic'? And was 'Picnic' just poor man's 'Boost'? And was 'Boost' just poor man's 'Double-Decker'? And were any of these choco bars even REAL or just MANDELA EFFECT PHANTOMS ALL CLOGGING UP MY FRIKKIN BRAINS?
I live with black people in a predominantly black area and have to be reminded at times that my skin color it is not as dark as those around me. Lol. I will be in the neighborhood and various hours of the night and people will ask me "aren't you afraid"? of what I ask. And they'll tell me if being so deep in the hood. I have to laugh. No I'm not afraid thankfully almost everybody knows who the hell I am.
