My boys are 6 and 8
Okay. Why do I now I have the feeling that your about to justify brainwashing.
they learn about Jesus,
As do I. I see the similarities between him and the loads of other savior myths from the era, and before. But somehow I doubt they do, as well as yourself.
they know about Noah and the flood,
I know I brought up similarities between Jesus and other savior myths, but there are similarities between Mr. Noah and a character from circa 2700 BCE (at least the earliest confirmed writings of it are) in ancient Babylon, about 700 years before Abraham and Yahweh made their covenant, named Gilgamesh.
Both had a great flood, both where caused by man sins/wickedness, both built a boat, both packed it full of animals, etc. The point is, they are very similar. But I doubt you knew that before.
they understand sin,
Sin is a hugely vague concept. I remember what a friend of mine told me in grammar school (still haven't figured out if he was joking or not), "If you like doing it, it's a sin!"
they know the bad guys don't like Jesus,
Who are the bad guys? Is it everyone non Christian? Everyone not part of your brand of Christianity?
they understand that jesus was pinished on the cross for the things they have done wrong,
What this term "pinished", do you mean punished? Also as a former depressed Catholic (now a semi depressed, due to my depression which has been around my whole life, atheist,) I gotta tell you something. The whole guilt thing isn't healthy, nor helpful for when you ask for proof.
they have told Jesus they are sorry for doing wrong and ask Jesus if they can be in His family,
Again with the guilt.
they are not sure about water baptism,
Yes, because what kid doesn't love being dunked under water while all those around just say a few words?
they are ready for the rapture,
The poor kids, they are going to be so disappointed when he doesn't come this year, nor anytime within the next 70 or so years they are going to be alive.
they know Jesus has a mansion prepared for them
So Jesus is giving everyone mansions (or at least everyone in your sect of Christianity?) If only Oprah was so generous...
, they understand they return with Jesus at the second coming on white horses,
Why horses? Also it's been about about 1979 years, if your going by the year was 30 ACE was the year his last follower who knew him died, and that's if you believe that Jesus was a real person.
they hope their 2 dogs will be with them in the millennium,
Shame that All Dogs Go to Heaven is just a cartoon and not a documentary. In both the heaven and the dogs being in heaven regard.
they understand socialism is wrong,
Unless your drilling politics by giving your distortion at ages eight and six children are to young to fully understand them. Don't talk about politics at the table and pump them full of your spin, let them make up their own mind.
they don't want anyone voting for Obama in 2012
Well it's a shame that in 2012 they still won't be of voting age, nor in 2016. Maybe by the 2020 election your oldest will have some brains and do the research for his own. Somehow I doubt you will let them.
we haven't discussed religion yet
It sounds like you have with your talking about the Rapture, Jesus dying on the cross, et al. These are all religion topics.
On a side note. Please instead of using commas for a separator, use a period (you know they look like a dot.) And don't have a three and a half line sentence, nearly gave me a headache with all the lines of black text.

BuzzardHut, if you haven't discussed religion, then why are they Christian and believe Christian things? Oh right, religion applies to everything besides Christianity in fudies eyes. If it's not a religion it is a business and therefore needs to pay 2000 years of overdue taxes. Otherwise you are an idiot and need to present alternative views and let them decide.
(Funnily enough, I first read the name as Buttzhurt.)
9/15/2009 9:00:49 PM
By not having discussed religion, he means he hasn't discussed OTHER religions. Y'know, wrong things. =p
9/15/2009 9:07:35 PM
You can't even spell or use a period.
I feel sorry for your kids?
9/15/2009 9:59:55 PM
Posts like these make me wonder what socialism is supposed to be in the eyes of US Americans like this one. Seems to be catch phrase for "anything I don't like or don't understand in politics".
If buzzhurt thinks his kind is the good people, I'll gladly be bad. I know this crowd, I was there and got out.

Why didn't they learn about the real religion islam?
9/16/2009 5:10:39 AM
"we haven't discussed religion yet"
I finally realized what you mean by this. You haven't told them yet that anyone who isn't a bible-banging, Jesus-ass-kissing, wild-eyed, fanatical fundie is an evil person who is going to hell to burn forever. Especially them dang ol' Catholics, Methodists, Jews, Muslims and anybody else who doesn't sit around waiting for the whooshfest. Well, your kids are already 6 and 8, so better start beating the intolerance into them now. But start it out easy. Teach them how to hate a homosexual first.
9/16/2009 7:53:32 AM
has this person taught their kids cognitive dissonance?
9/16/2009 11:31:09 AM
Let's see. You've taught them about a deity, ancient mythology, doctrine, good and evil, supernatural deliverance, posthumous rewards and punishments, exclusive rights based on belief systems, forced opinions in other parts of life based on doctrine, guilt, and predictions about the future.
Pretty sure that's religion, pal. And if it's not, I suppose your church won't mind losing its tax-free status.
9/16/2009 5:43:06 PM
So you list off whole bunch of religious beliefs...and then two random political opinions thrown in for kicks... that your kids know, and then claim not to have discussed religion. Is this in support of your argument that kids are born fundies, that christianity is not a religion, or that lying is totally acceptable according to the bible? all are stupid arguments (though I think the one about lying being okay with god is stupider than the other two) but I'm curious as to which it is. Who knows, it may even be something less obvious than the ones I listed.

"Christianity is not a religion but evolution is! LOLlerskates!"
And they say Christian comedians aren't funny.
9/17/2009 1:06:12 AM
Utter nonsensical bull shit.
9/17/2009 1:25:40 AM
It gets even better. Here's what Buzz says later on in the thread
"Here is their remark for any school talks on Obama:
"I listen to my parents, not Obama, Jesus is my king, I am a Christian, not a socialist."
when asked what is a socialist:
"The government takes all my money and gives it to people who won't work"
9/20/2009 9:02:53 AM
The punchline makes it.
9/22/2009 6:22:54 AM
This chucklehead is breeding. Fuck.
9/22/2009 7:25:38 AM
you havent evven let your children have a mind or opinion. what the point of having free will if you manipulate your children with prpoganda

someones stuck in the 50s

ignoring most of the stuff that other people have talked about, lets talk about the dogs, you do know that according to your religion dogs don't have souls, which means the second they die they cease to exist in all aspects. Only humans have eternal souls :-\
Also, if they know all this then religion has been discussed. They WILL NOT teach bible stories in school.
Also, jesus was punished for adam and eve's sin, not ours.

we haven't discussed religion yet
Lie much? At 8 I had already read the babble and concluded it was a bunch of crap for morons. Your kids sound stupid. Kill them.
4/19/2010 10:18:57 AM
You know...you finally have proof for evolution. I see here, conclusive proof of a Buzzard spawning a pair of Parrots.
4/19/2010 11:20:34 AM
your kids are TOO YOUNG to even understand what socialism is!
4/21/2010 3:11:57 PM
>we haven't discussed religion yet
HOW? HOW HAVE YOU POSSIBLY MANAGED THAT? HOW HAVE YOU MANAGED TO GET THEM TO BELIEVE /ALL THAT/ BUT NOT HAVE DISCUSSED RELIGION?
DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT RELIGION MEANS?
6/8/2010 1:24:13 PM
"we haven't discussed religion yet"
After all of that madness, you end off by saying that?
I hope for your kids sake, they grow up and become strong-minded and question things they do not understand, but if that happens, be prepared for a pop-quiz on this bullshit
6/8/2010 2:48:49 PM
Very nice of you to make your kids feel bad about something that happend 2000 years ago .
they understand that jesus was pinished on the cross for the things they have done wrong, they have told Jesus they are sorry for doing wrong
6/13/2010 5:39:02 AM
Child abuse, pure and simple. Fucking disgusting, forcing your children to parrot your own views rather than equipping them to make their own decisions then giving them the freedom to do so.
You are basically stealing the rights of those children to make fundamental and life defining decisions for themselves regarding faith by mercelessly indoctrinating them from their earliest years.
Hope they pay you back in spades for so casually and self-righteously fucking with their lives, you selfish peice of shit.
