My advice to you is do good in school, when you reach 18 and get that degree in your teeth like a good pirate should. Get the hell out of Tennessee, find a new place to call home, and go to college or educate yourself further.

With your mother, she loves you deep down inside. even if she finds it hard to admit it openly + is crazy. It never hurts to tell your mom that you love her.even if you don't. I do it to my mom all the time. Im a 25 year old psych major.

Be a good pirate and you will sail sure.

Well dude, you gotta keep in mind, that as far as he's concerned, you're going to wind up in Hell. That's a fact for him. So I'm sure he doesn't want to see a friend go to the crappiest place there is. So he's gonna figure it's in your best interest to be converted no matter what you want to do. From his point of view, that would make perfect sense. Think about it this way. If you had a friend who really wanted to commit suicide, wouldn't you try to stop him? Same thing.

Send him a nice "gospelli" mail and tell him about the true god and that you have found him (he is of course) and that you will be rewarded in heaven for it. Try to get some answers by "mirroring" his questions ;)

ex:Question: Do you have any proof that he is The one and only true God?
ex:Answer: Do YOU have any proof that he is The one and only true God

In short, give him a taste of his own remedy :fsm_float:

I dont think anyone that is supposedly sure about god and all that could be swayed by this kind of reasoning , but even if this only cause the smalles bit of doubt for him it was well worth it. Once anyone starts to reason instead of asserting "facts" in any field the water behind the floodgates start to increase.....and maybe some day....the gate cant handle it anymore.

I kinda had this same thing happen to me...three times.
It really depends on how close this friend was to you. If he isn't a good enough friend to keep with you no matter what, i'm not sure you should keep with him. I agree with many others, tell him you have found the one true god. but, questions will be asked no matter waht. i have fount it's kinda hard to keep on being friends with these people (or keep on having a major crush on one). Sorry about that. I feel you. I hate Georgia. All southern athiests are apparently devil worshippers.
just try to make friends with people who respect you for who you are. and move on your 18th birthday. don't reproduce in the south...

My friend went to alaska, and there were no veggitarian options on the menu, not even in the appetizers. And when he asked them if they could do a special order, the chef didn't do it, cause he "Didn't want to cook for some hippie idiot".

Edit: Oops, double post. Sorry.

Wikipedia wrote:The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

In the practice of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a living person, acting as proxy, is baptized by immersion on behalf of a deceased person of the same gender. The baptism ritual is as follows: after calling the living proxy by name, the person performing the baptism says, "Having been commissioned of Jesus Christ, I baptize you for and in behalf of [full name of deceased person], who is dead, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen." The proxy is then immersed briefly in the water. Baptism for the dead is a distinctive ordinance of the church and is based on the belief that baptism is a required ordinance for entry into the Kingdom of God.

Community of Christ

Some members of the early Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (now known as the Community of Christ) also believed in baptism for the dead,[1] but it was never officially sanctioned by that organization, and was considered highly controversial.[2]

A revelation and two letters written by Joseph Smith, Jr. appertaining to baptism for the dead were removed from the RLDS Doctrine and Covenants by a church general conference in 1970.

Other Latter Day Saint churches

In the Restoration Branches movement, which broke from the RLDS Church in the 1980s, the question of Baptism for the Dead is at best unsettled, reflecting their RLDS origin. Many adherents reject the validity of this ordinance completely.[3]

Other Latter Day Saint denominations that accept baptism for the dead include the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Strangite) and The Church of Jesus Christ (Cutlerite). The Strangite Church performed baptisms for the dead during the 1840s in Voree, Wisconsin and later during the 1850s on Beaver Island, Michigan. In each case, the practice was authorized by revelation given by James J. Strang. The question of whether the Strangite Church still practices proxy baptism is an open one, but belief in it is considered orthodox.[4]

Cutlerite practice permits baptisms for the dead to be performed in baptismal fonts in Cutlerite meetinghouses (of which only two exist today, one in Clitherall, Minnesota and the other in Independence, Missouri). Though Cutlerites believe in the concept of temples, it is not required that baptisms for the dead be performed in one. The meetinghouse baptismal fonts are used for baptism of the living and for the dead. Cutlerites have practiced baptisms for the dead sporadically throughout their history (including during the early 1990s), but it is not known if they still do so. As with the LDS Church and the Strangite Church, belief in this doctrine is considered orthodox.


If that's correct, any of my descendants who do that to me are gettin' their asses haunted. I want my beer and strippers, not some boring-ass Mormon heaven.

I have (distant) Mormon relatives, including some from Minnesota. I'm going to be pretty pissed if our ancestors were Mormonized. They were Irish Catholic by choice (Mormons appear in the family around 1890 or so and everybody before that was Catholic). To arbitrarily deem them Mormon (when they probably would have thrown a fit about it) is just wrong. They can't object to it. And I'm going to guess that at least some of them have been, based on the below.

That explains something my family has been wondering about for a while. One of the pictures on the main page of ancestry.org is of an aunt of ours. Holy crap.

LPM, sounds like your former bud is a douche bag. I'd either write him off or troll him a bit with Pastafarianism. I'd troll him, but that's me.

Anywhere you find lots of conservatards, you're going to have a had time finding veggie options unless there's an Indian restaurant around. I live in the Bible Belt of California and it's very difficult to find options.

Yeah, Bill Hicks is a pretty good guide to this religious stuff.

:lol:

Surprising though, most mormons are pretty nice... I had a few mormon friends in high school and they didn't preach to me once. Though they didn't invite me to their wedding either - apparently they don't allow pirates (or anyone who isn't a mormon) into their church building.

I received an invitation to the reception, which stated I had about five minutes to drop of a wedding present - a present that had to be chosen from a very expensive registry at some high-class mormon shoppe. That's what lead to the dissipation of our friendship...
