Captain Husky commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"I never claimed to have any indecision at my friend's service. I apologize if it came off that way. I asked questions that I feel were more geared toward fostering a discussion, and was curious what opinions and input on the matter other people…"

"@Captain Husky ''I can confidently say that quiet rebuke was the right thing to do.'' Forgive me for being very picky here, but didn't you just answer the very question you came on here to be answered?!"

Kairan Nierde commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"I think the etiquette for attending funerals, holiday celebrations, weddings, etc. of another religion is to follow their lead, if both parties welcome your participation, or to observe respectfully if not.  Redecorating, critiquing the…"

James commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"In the first example, staying silent and respectful was the proper course of action.   But in the last example... Someone should have stopped that shortly after it started. Funerals are about the deceased, not what the presenter/preacher is…"

Captain Husky replied to Zach Hooper's discussion 'The "God" found in psychoactives'
"    There was a time that I imbibed hallucinogenic drugs on a ridiculously regular basis. What I mean to say is: I did a lot of fucking drugs. Some friends and I for a while had this thing that would happen when we dropped acid or ate…"

College Humor pokes at religious people for being like nerds, spot on!

"Firefly IS the closest thing I have to religion in my life!  "

Captain Husky commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"    Well, I appreciate the input, people (especially the Santa Jeebus part). I did feel that it was not my place at the time to stand up and say anything. If it were my father, as opposed to my father-in-law, things would have…"

Patrick D. Mahoney commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"My usual stance on funerals is to stay silent if the person being mourned was religious.  I don't pretend to mouth the prayers or get up for communion (as my agnostic brother did recently at our grandmother's funeral mass), however.…"

Tex commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"I'm afraid I wouldn't have been so polite to the rather in-polite preacher. I would have found it offensive that he didn't respect the wishes of the family and flat out disrespected the dead's held beliefs. How tolerant would he…"

Breanne commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"I really like what Ernie said to do. It's respectful in a way that still gets your point across. "

ernie garcia commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"i would have asked to say a few words about the deceased and then politely intimated that the point of the funeral was to honor the one who died and not testify to the wonder working miracle power of santa jeebus.  i would have also pointed out…"

Rosemary LYNDALL WEMM commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"Or it was at the time I left, a decade ago.  There's been a Bush-loving semi-theocracy for most of years so it would not surprise me if things have changed."
Aug 11, 2011
Rosemary LYNDALL WEMM commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"It is a pity that the U.S. does not have a respectable bunch of "civil celebrants" who can be hired for a modest fee to help celebrate the human rites-of-passage in a secular non-religionist way.  In Australia this is becoming…"

Bryan Casey commented on Captain Husky's blog post 'Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.'
"You should have definitely said something while the service was taking place. I would have stood up and walked to the minister, and kindly whispered in his ear reminding him that this was a funeral and that he should respect the family's wishes…"

Funeral Etiquette: or How to Remain Tolerant in the Face of Intolerance.

    A friend of mine died recently, a Catholic friend, someone with whom I had shared many theological discussions with. He had no trouble listening to me babble on about my views and would even chuckle in the face of me bashing his God, or more appropriately, the "pushers of the poison". You must understand, I'm a jerk sometimes. So last Monday I took off work and attended his funeral to pay my respects. Now, I might point out here that I had a fairly strict Catholic upbringing myself, (my…See More

Why you left your religion.
The myriad of obvious contradictions that could not be reconciled by the church. And an all around disbelief in fairy tales. It's hard to believe anything so farfetched. I might as well believe in flying penguins who speak in a Scandanavian tounge and leave gifts for children at midnight.
