Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man… living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money!
I would never want to be a member of a group whose symbol was a man nailed to two pieces of wood.
Catholic — which I was until I reached the age of reason.
What year did Jesus think it was?
The only good thing ever to come out of religion was the music.
I think everyone should treat one another in a Christian manner. I will not, however, be responsible for the consequences.
“When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?” This title offends all three major religions, and even vegetarians!
I have as much authority as the Pope. I just don’t have as many people who believe it.
I'm not sure who originally started the Honest Scrap Award, but apparently it's been around for at least a year and has been passed around by blogs on several continents. The logo is a picture of an old chewing tobacco sign.
According to the rules of the award, I'm supposed to send it to 10 other blogs and list 10 true things about myself. That's gonna be tough. There are over 200 blogs in my blogroll and I like each one of them for different reasons. And I don't know if there are 10 things about me that anyone will find very interesting.
OK, so here are 10 blogs that I currently check out on a regular basis. Of course none of them are obligated to send this award on. This is really just a way to let others know about some other cool blogs. In alphabetical order --

And here's 10 things about me you may or may not know --
1. I don't drive. I took driver's training and had my temps when I was in high school back in 1984. I just didn't care for it and never got a driver's license. 2. I met my wife through a personal ad I placed in a local singles paper in 1996. We married in 1998. She was the only one that answered my ad, so I had to marry her. 3. I like mushrooms. On pizza, in pasta, on my salad. They're my favorite fungus. 4. People don't like to play Trivial Pursuit with me. My brain is filled with tons of useless knowledge. 5. I make scrapbooks. There's nothing I enjoy more than going to the local scrapbook store on "crop night" and scrapping with the ladies. 6. I like to listen to movie soundtracks. When I was a kid I had the records of Star Wars, Superman: The Movie, CE3K, The Muppet Movie and others. I would listen to them along with my KISS records. 7. I've lived in Akron, OH my whole life, except for one year I lived in Kent with some friends. 8. I had perfect attendance my senior year of high school. 9. I played Dungeons & Dragons through most of the 80s with my brother and friends. My favorite characters were Brister Firethorn (a dwarf fighter) and Spry Brusque ( a human thief). 10. I blame my warped mind on my parents. They took me and my brother to age inappropriate movies when we were kids. We saw movies like Blazing Saddles and Andy Warhol's Frankenstein.
Note From Dat Big Cheeze:
We was hopin' to be getting our bad selves an award, too, but ours would probably look like dis:
Rabbits, Pussycats, and Dreamy Romance
