Huh, I feel like a puppy whose just been given a postman flavoured bone: great resource, this Scribed. Edit: You have to sign-up through Facebook - too much hassle there to be able to download but still a great text resource.

@CC - Seems to me, Dude, that you have reclaimed yourself - kudos, mang.
My mother left Ireland for London when she was 16 - as soon as her feet hit Blighty she dropped all the Catholic baggage and never even attempted to bring us kids up (7 of us) in any kind of faith. General good manners, thinking of others - usual motherly lessons but not a peep about Popes. She didn't have anything good to say about the repressive Roman regime and yet, at this time of year, she would sometimes pine for the pageantry of Midnight Mass. Whenever she traveled back to Eire she would always fish out her wedding ring (even though she'd been divorced for years) and slip it back onto her finger - she'd go to Church, too. She cared more about what her old friends would think of her if they knew she was a divorcee . . it leaves it's mark, certainly. I'm happy she found some form of freedom, you too, Dude. Abide

there was a great chapter in "the lucifer principle," a book i read years ago which drove the point home that control of the invisible is far more important than control of the visible in recounting the henry vs hildebrand debacle - http://www.scribd.com/doc/22589677/Howard-Bloom-The-Lucifer-Principle.

Sorry forumdude, but your link froze my window. Had to give it the 3 finger salute to get out of it and then a window to some kind of Bible study opened right under it.

Google Books has a preview of the book, but I think I will wait for the movie.

that's weird, cc. - it's on scribd.com - the youtube of documents. they're a straightforward company, and don't push ads like that or anything. can't imagine how that happened.
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

Yeah, sorry about that forumdude, it was my bad. When my window locked up I got a little mouse crazy trying to unlock it. I must of clicked on a embedded link.
Why my window locked up is another matter. I may need to switch from IE to Chrome for that web site.

Sorry to bring this up again but in reply to Ethan:

Quote from: Ethan
You act as though they are mutually exclusive, that Dudeist Christian is not the same as Christian Dudeist. The author was merely saying that the Dude?s philosophy is compatible, if not admirable, with Christianity.

@Ethan

Sorry if yu are getting that vibe from what is here please have a look at the conversation on the forum as well.

I don?t think any of us have a problem with Dueist Christians or Christian Dudeists. The problem we have is the co-opting of what we actually think of as a very serious religious point of view.

The problem we (particularly Cake and Myself) have is the feeling that we are continually embattled by Christians telling us that we are not practicing Dudeism but really just Christians.

As Dudeists we are not Christians that is our choice. There are Dudeists who are Christians, we have no problem with this point of view.

The point of view we do have a problem with is that we are not Christians (those of us who are not Christian), we don?t want to be Christians.

Please, please stop trying to make us Christian.

Having grown up in a half-Jewish half-Catholic family, I would say, if I were FORCED to choose that Dudeism seems to follow Judaism more than Christianity.  However, the reason I choose to be a Dudeist is because it is NEITHER of these religions, but it's own.  If I were to be told that being a Dudeist meant I were a Christian, I would cease to be a Dudeist for the same reasons I ceased to be Christian.  By hey, that's just, like.....my opinion, man.

Uber to an extent I agree.

I also rejected Christianity as a point of view in my early teens.

Which is probably why I'm usually one of the first to jump on the soap box to start shouting against xianiation.

Right on! My soap box is usually occupado with Church/State.  The Dude, like his foredudes does not abide with the mixing of the two.  It's not like Kahlua and cream you know. : )

More Little People:

actually Cake there is more to this picture than first appears. I like it's subtly comment on the commercialisation of the catholic church, like the Mc Jesus Burger "Would you like to go sanctimonious or evangelical with that sir?"

Yeah, thought it fit nicely with the last posts on the Jeebus topic, there.
"Mc Jesus Burger "Would you like to go sanctimonious or evangelical with that sir?"  ;D
