Can you sum up for me why you feel that this should be on ATS as opposed to BTS? I do realize that this is just another "jedi special" written simply to get responses due to the insane or inflamatory nature of thread. However, I am curious about how you justify it.
The one commandment
1. Kill trollers on internett forums.
2. Stone to death the one who believes in Egyptian Cat-people.

Religion and Laws don't mix. it should be legal to practice your religion without government rules and regulations. let's speculate for a moment. A man follows a Mayan religion. Let's call it, "Mayanism". According to his religion it's ok to sacrifice someone on top of a pyramid. Should the government allow this? I think..yes.

Seriously though, crucifixion was not a method of religious execution but a form of political execution performed by the sovereign government of Rome, among others.
And I'm darn thankful for what my God endured for me... and for you even if you choose to never accept it.
Anyways, relax. It's an avatar. One I will never change so you might as well get used to seeing it around.
But please help me sleep a little easier tonight and allow me to give you the benefit of the doubt that you do indeed know what the cross stands for and that it is not a rallying symbol to start gathering people up and crucifying them?
