What if you were going to end up in hell anyway?

Read Dr. Faustus for an idea of what the devil is offering. And what awaits you at the end.

Yes, as any fool who's read the bible or been forced to go to sunday school as a child knows.

Addendum: When I was in primary 6 (the age of about 11, young and impressionable) we had an extremely conservative, hardcore, and need I say quite bigoted religious teacher. By this I mean a teacher who was religious, not a Religious Education teacher. Anyway, every morning, she would FORCE is to say the Lord's Prayer - hands clasped, heads bowed, eyes closed - and then one person, usually the one who was caught without doing one of the above, would be called to stand up (at that age!) and read a passage from the Bible. Only then would class continue. No question of whether we wanted to, or whether we belonged to Christianity; no, let's just impose it upon these young children who don't know any better and don't know how to argue against it if they find it's not what they believe. I think that's probably one of the central factors of my current attitude toward ingrained, organised religion.

Good grief, who cares? I mean it, really and truly. Who fucking cares?

Should the teacher have behaved as she did? Of course not. She should've been reprimanded and (if she kept it up) fired. Her antics have no place in public schooling.

But really, who the fuck cares?

She didn't cut off your arms. She didn't molest you. Making you read *gasp* teh Bible! is really no fucking big deal. What the fuck? Why the hell do people keep overreacting to this shit?

I'll tell you what, if I'd been forced to read the Qur'an in third grade every day instead of having to learn to write in cursive, I'd've been a much fucking happier little third grader.

Not in the slightest.

It's just that this kind of story always feels like it expects a response of general outrage. And it's really just not outrageous. It's small. It's very, very small.

Overreacting? OVERREACTING? You are the one who seems to be overreacting! Yes, you, you crazed, spewing repeating yourself overreacter! I feel like ripping the fingers from your hand just because you are flying off the handle while accusing others of doing the same thing!

Really, what are you going on about? Is filecore's anecdote more in your eyes than just a story about when he was young, or are you just ranting about every lawsuit in general when students in public schools are forced to pray?
