Maybe if I quit saying it my friends will too. :)

This is one of many ways Descr...

Some of you may go to church once a week, or on religious Holidays. But do you ever wonder if there is a God? If those things written in the bible are based on truth or are a bundle of fairly tales?

And if you've ever been in a plane, you know there are no angels or golden gates up there in the cloud...

What's your opinion...

Why is it that many Christians feel the need to force religion onto others? I have asked this to myself many times but I can't seem to get a good answer.

Time to unleash to dogs.
