It's not necessarily true.  More like, they believe in the same bullshit, but they hold church services in a pub on Sunday mornings instead of a church.

I was one of 4 people to start a local YWAM base in Portland a few years ago...I know hipster Christians inside and out.  Some of them (Mars Hill in Seattle-well, they think they are hipster, but really they are just regular old Christian Culture, repackaged) are horrible and lame and damaging...but others (the Bridge Church in Portland) are wonderful, and really do a lot to help their community, and don't really care if you believe the bullshit or not, they just want to take care of people.

Just another chain letter, but people pass them on.

I was taught in the military that after you have strangled someone to death to always cover their eyes with your arm and then quickly retract it to ensure they were actually dead, by checking if there was any pupil change to the dark/light.

It's interesting that after having seen this picture that was the first thing to come to mind ;)

It's not bullshit; we just haven't heard of it.

I want to get rosary beads tattooed around around my wrist, like they are held in real life. No religious reason, I'm not catholic nor have I ever been but I think they're so beautiful and why should the religious people get all the cool bling. Might get like a ying yang or peace sign or something instead of the cross though.

More effectively translated: We believe in bullshit, we just want to pretend it's unique bullshit... but we don't actually want to challenge ourselves enough to leave our comfort zone and find something REAL.
