Life Imitating Art

No this is not taken from an episode of Fr. Ted

Bishop Brennan is encouraging people to pray to put an end to our soggy summer.
If only there was a real Fr Ted to kick him in the arse! :lol:

There's a Native American family living at the end of my road, they do be out performing a rain dance every other day. Maybe I should ask them to stop?!

No, they don't. Zeitgeist and all of its sequels were nothing but enormous turd piles full of ignorance and unsubstantiated claims that have since been debunked. You do yourself, and the atheist movement in general, no favours by quoting it.

I wasn't quoting Zeitgeist. I was basing it on the fact that many aspects of Jesus are taken from pagan sun gods. Such as his birth day, being called the good shepherd, the halo etc. Not to mention the fact that it was a bloody joke!
