It seems highly divisive and politically driven.

Kids minds are just forming. Why would you indoctrinate them with such an offensive idea?

If I were a parent id lobby the local library to remove them from circulation

And we would not visit you in the prison or psychiatric hospital - whichever they decided was appropriate. Probably the latter.

And why aren't you a parent by now anyway?
You're not using birth control are you?
Why aren't you married with a kid for each year since you were 16?
It's what god wants of you.
You've some 'splain'n to do.

I just realized that SisterAgatha is not gonna answer  :sad sigh: ...well, she/he never did, so what's the difference? It's kinda like praying to a god, isn't it?  :snicker: Maybe that's where she/he learned this type of behavior.

What if Sister Agatha is god?

I mean let's say god is up there or wherever and she's like, "I'm so tired of these sneering atheists, I'm going join this Happy Atheist Forum as a troll and put these people in their place"!

So she decides to cover herself by claiming to be a Catholic Sister when joining the forum, however.

Turns out god is just as bad being a troll as she is a god?

Do you think pretending to be a Catholic sister is some sort of offense against the rules of this site, AngelOfDeath? How would you categorize this offense?

And, celibate. Don't forget, a "celibate catholic nun."
"I think pretending to be celibate, "for 3 mos straight" is some sort of offense against the rules of this site"....I don't know, I'm just saying.  :unsure:

No...no...Now that you mention it, maybe that's exactly what we need to attract new members.  :grin:

If we only had a promiscuous catholic father... :chin:
