Montgomery Village is IN Gaithersburg! It's not far from me, either. One of my favorite sandwich places is near there; ask your relatives if they've ever been to Roy's Place. It's a hoot.

Actually, I'm not FROM Maryland, although I've lived here for more than 30 years. I'm FROM Philadelphia, and I'm one of very few people I know who actually admit to loving Philly. (What I wouldn't give for a cheesesteak, or a real Philly soft pretzel with mustard, or decent pizza . . . ) I'd always sort of assumed I was only here temporarily and would be moving back to Philly any time, but my parents moved to Florida ages ago, and my only brother lives between me and Baltimore (about 35 minutes' drive from my house), and this is my son's home, so I guess I should probably accept that this is my home now, too. Living in the DC suburbs has its advantages, though . . . Did you know that almost all the DC museums and the zoo are free to visitors?
Have you ever heard of Old Forge pizza? (It's near Scranton.) That's what I miss.

Hello Chris and Welcome, I too have a bible on my shelf in the living room. It is sandwiched between a copy of Scottish fairy tales and my Harry Potter books. I have had lots of people puzzled by this but my humanist friends always " get it ". As a book of old myths and fables I have no trouble with the bible, I also have copies of Greek Myths and Legends etc.

Just had this Monty Python bit jump into my head and thought I would share. This is sung to the tune of the hymn "All things bright and beautiful"

All Things Dull and Ugly

To the tune of 'All Things Bright and Beautiful'

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.

Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom,
He made their horrid wings.

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid,
Who made the spiky urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did.

All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.

Now that's some scary thinking.

Oooh, i LIKE that dinosaur eating the fish. I'm also a fan of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Great site!

I also get a kick out of this one:

I'm afraid to think of what would happen to me if I actually put one of these on my vehicle.

I thought of you ladies today as I watching NBC Nightly News and they showed Matt Lauer with Pres Obama and the pressing question was "Why the family hadn't picked a church?" Really! There is nothing else going on in the world to discuss with the leader of our country but what church the family is attending!

Pres Obama did say they can't just go to one due to the disruption that occurs during services they attend, so they go to several.

Thanks for listening to my vent of the evening.

Actually, I live in the suburbs of Washington, DC, and they only more pressing question than what church the president's family is going to attend when he gets here is what school he's going to send his children to (assuming he has school-age children). It's a fascinating place to live.

I thought the most pressing question was why he snarls up traffic to go get a hamburger? Or was it a pizza?

Oh, and all the hub-bub over what kind of dog they were going to get. Hmmm, I would have thought that the PC thing to do would have been to rescue a dog from a shelter. Just sayin'.

As for picking a church, I'm surprised any President even claims a particular religion. Wouldn't want to show favorites or offend anyone

Hi all I was part of the old thread i guess i never moved over to this one. I thought of it when i was reading in the current event section about the pope and the scandal in the Catholic Church. It makes me wonder how many more religions are going to step forward now and admit they have been hiding abuse.
Glad i am an Atheist!! lol

Hi,
When will people in authority ever learn? It's not the crime it's the cover-up!

Yes that would be best, except they have allergies, so they picked a dog that wouldn't aggravate that.

I read someone who suggested (it was some atheist blog) that Obama's dissembling on the question shows that he's obviously an atheist but has to pretend he's not.

My new siggy mentions someone I normally would not but I couldn't resist!

Nice siggy.

I wouldn't consider Obama an atheist since during the same interview he told Matt he gets daily devotions delivered to his BBerry.

LOL! CE can be brutual. I do a lot of reading but not a lot of posting.

Their allergies played the major role, but they did get him from a breeder in which the first owner returned him because they couldn't keep him. Not like they called the breeder and asked for a puppy from the next litter. So I'm OK with it. I'm a huge supporter of adopting a rescue but I also understand why people don't. My Boxer is a rescue and it has been a long 4 years of separation anxiety. Our next dog, hubby wants a Boxer puppy from a breeder, not my choice, but I don't think I'll win. Our cats on the other hand, perfect pound babies!

Yes, but that could be a dodge, too. At least, as far as we know, he isn't starting meetings with prayers. Or having his military briefings accompanied by bible quotations.

See it's like I told my neighbor, the one who confided in me that she was Jewish when she said she'd have something for my kids for Easter ...I have no problem with Jesus it's the Christians I can do without.

Is it weird for atheists to believe Jesus existed?

Isn't that Gandhi's line - I do not like your Christians, they are so unlike your Christ.

I guess it's not weird, but believing he actually delivered miraculous health cures is another thing!

I think he was a cool guy, welcoming and caring and accepting...not sure where it all fell apart. Son of God, resurrected, healer? Nah not buying it. Stories after the fact

Perhaps that is because he understands separation of church and state and knows that prayer and bible quotations in the workplace are inappropriate.

I think that historians believe that he existed and did some wonderful, radical things. They just don't all agree that he performed miracles. And there was debate among Christian sects about whether he was the son of god. That wasn't decided until centuries after he died. That little tidbit was the pebble that began my doubting. How can dogma be infalliable when major decisions were debated and voted on?

I was reading on another thread about how much money people are spending on Easter stuff.... and I'm soooo guilty. I really went overboard this year. Yikes. and it got me thinking... I don't celebrate it from the religious aspect. But I do sorta like the Pagan perspective of spring and fertility and the cycle of the seasons. Plus chocolate candy in pretty pastel wrappers is just hard to resist!

My MIL - a die hard Catholic who thinks EVERYONE who isn't Catholic is going to hell - brought over a set of palms this week and stuck it behind our family portrait on the wall. Ugh. I took them down. So annoying. I couldn't bring myself to throw them out, though.

I bought the kids little toys this year. I've never done it and never got that from my parent's so don't know why I did. Just a puzzle and a Bakugan. Basically they put their baskets out the night before. I stay up and fill them, hide them, They get up in the morning and find them. THen we do some egg hunting in the backyard with plastic eggs. Neither kid likes hardboiled eggs so we don't bother with coloring yet. WE spend as much time as weather allows in the yard cleaning, gardening, playing enjoying Spring.

My niece, who converted to catholicism several years ago, says she won’t do the ‘fun’ part of Easter (filled baskets, egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, etc.) because that takes away from the ‘true’ meaning. Granted, she doesn’t have kids yet so she may still change her mind, but it kind of sounds like she’s afraid to put her god/mother mary, up against a chocolate bunny.

Oh yeah I believe Jesus existed. I was talking with a Muslim friend about ten years ago about it, and she said that they believe Jesus was a great prophet. Just not God.

At least I think that's what she said.

My MIL - a die hard Catholic who thinks EVERYONE who isn't Catholic is going to hell - brought over a set of palms this week and stuck it behind our family portrait on the wall. Ugh. I took them down. So annoying. I couldn't bring myself to throw them out, though.
Oh!!! Palms! A childhood memory, yes we always had the palms behind a big picture. I learned that the leftover palms are burned and those are next years ashes on Ash Wed. Wonder if that's still true.

So today I asked DH if it was okay to have chicken for dinner tomorrow - Friday. He said fine with him. I said, so we won't instantly combust?

DD goes, "If we were going to combust, it would have happened a long time ago."

Since DH and I have been on our own and away from family we don't "do" Easter. I always thought of it as the Christian holy holiday and did not want any part of it. Then last year, on this thread, I learned about the Pagan basis for the holiday, and was amazed that I didn't put it together sooner (ancient Christians stole everything, didn't they?). We still won't "do" Easter this year, but I know when we have our own little people I won't feel hypocritical about doing the fun part of Easter.

I do love Spring and that is what I celebrate. Some years I send Happy Spring cards, but my Happy Easter stamp from All Year Cheer has never seen ink.

So true about pastel-wrapped chocolate. I love the commercial where they dye the mini Reese's cups. Reese's eggs are my fave, and I have resisted getting one so far this year, but I think I'll have to budget one into my points this weekend before they sell out!

That used to be how it went...I'm sure nothing in the Catholic church has changed since I spent my formative years there.
