M&S may not be a religious band, but they are almost certainly influenced by Christianity (as well as by Shakespeare, Steinbeck and Homer). Take a listen to "White Blank Page," "Roll Away Your Stone," "Winter Winds" or "Awake My Soul."
I sing Christmas songs in Summer, although I "hate" Christmas...I had as a Christian as well. I also hate Christmas songs at Christmas. They're really best in the warm months.
Forgive me website for I have sinned ;)
Let's see, I say "God forbid," and "Bless you"
I yell at the sky when frustrated (but no longer think there is someone up there to yell at.)
Oh I stone the infidels and bask in his radiance and fury.
No... wait. I don't do that last bit.
I must say/shout "GODDAMNIT" at least 10-15x a day at work. But to be fair, if my goddamn company would put together a better goddamn database, I wouldn't have to yell goddamnit so much.
Also, aside from "motherfucker" or "cunt" I think "goddamnit" tends to raise the most eyebrows, which let's be honest, is the point of muttering cusses under your breath to begin with. It relieves a little stress, but mostly it lets people know that you are NOT HAPPY.
thanks Tex in the City...u made my evening!!! lmfao
Haha glad to help!
i still say "blessyou" at sneezes out of habit, but some friends of mine who know of my lack of faith have started saying "nothinghappenswhenyoudie" when i sneeze. i think its adorable.
I answer to the name Jesus. Whenever someone exclaims “Jesus!” I reply with “Yes?!”
That's cute. Use the right tone and you could scare the shit out of certain people. Sad
Hahaha! I've done that!
I often say things like goddammit and holy s***, and i hate it every time. I resent that I live in a world where religion has had enough power that even a non-believer can't help but use these words. They have their own meaning that, to me, is removed from religion, but that doesn't change the fact that the expression began as a believer's phrase. To be honest, though, I was less likely to use these expressions when I was still christian because I felt like I was taking the lords name in vain, or being disrespectful. So while I hate using the expressions, It's also a slap in the face to god and what I learned in sunday school and I can enjoy it quite a bit too. I only wish that using the phrases showed other people my true disrespectful motives instead of creating the appearance of me being a god-fearing christian; using god's name in vain has been soo bittersweet.
I frequently take the Lard's name in vain: Goddammit, Jesus F'ing Christ, etc. I just think of it as taunting God.
I also feel a little guilty when I like a work of art that has an obvious christian (or other religious) spin on it. This usually happens with music and movies.
