You can choose to not do things. Stay home bro
@SacState, But what would his family say?
@SacState, I would do this out of spite if my family made me go to church or had a family church event that had bible readings. I dont care to participate and if i have to be there then good luck making me be a part of something I dont care for. Sometimes church is forced upon people, infact there are numerous studies that state without childhood indoctrination of faith people wont be religious for the most part because of the failings in logic that lead to different beliefs.
@Runnin with scissors, this dude looks like he's 40 though lmao
@PacificaPelican, family event? maybe you want to see your family but dont give a flying fvck about church
@Runnin with scissors, so hang out with them afterwards. If you don't like it then don't go, it's simple. Nobody is going to think you're edgy by trying to make a point
@PacificaPelican, not making a point really though especially if you are trying to be discrete. I've seen family's force church events on adults. Family judgement is tricky and I'd rather make a point to my family for being forced to go doesnt mean I'm edgy dont know where you're getting that I would just want to. Maybe I'm a dick but I do a lot of volunteer work at animal shelter and have been a counselor for the mentally ill for years at front street inc. I like what this guy is doing, I find it funny and I would definitely find it enjoyable to do if I felt forced into an event.
@Runnin with scissors, alright then you do you, I'm not trying to tell you how to live your life
@The Flame War, REEEEEEEEEEE
Or, you know, something along those lines.
@Empshok, How old is your family? 12?
@The Flame War, if they're pressuring somebody so badly that they feel the need to hide thier phone like that, you're probably not far off.
@Runnin with scissors, exactly. Religion can be so incredibly damaging and dangerous.
@Runnin with scissors, exactly!! It's like I made my 3 year old think the hazard lights button in my car was to make it fly and got real freaked when I told him I was going to push it. Kids will believe anything if it's coming from a reliable source like their parents. Remember kiddos blasphemy is fun.
@mclovinn, my dad used to tell me there was a special book of curse words only for adults in the glove box and if I ever opened it hed know. The temptation was real but I didn't because I was sure hed know. I also believed he was superman but had passed on the Cape. He did many things I never could understand as a kid to get me to believe.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
I'm not religious but that's pretty disrespectful in my opinion.
@Muscular Rooster, I mean not really maybe a little but what is he really disrespecting? That's the same argument as it's pretty disrespectful to be on your phone in a college class
@Muscular Rooster, yes, very disrespectful. Stay home, or join in. Maybe learn a bit about himself, or at least the people around him.
@Runnin with scissors, that's disrespectful too, if you'd rather be on your phone than being at school or church, then dont go.
@Muscular Rooster, it's not all that bad though an individual's disinterest in what the speaker is not super disrespectful because it doesnt affect others that are watching. And who is he disrespecting? The speaker right? If he made such an effort to be there while the speaker is unaware of him not paying attention I really dont see that as that bad. Especially if they need/want to be there for other reasons than listening to the speaker. I've gone to classes that I know are basically useless but I have to take for my major because there is a quiz that affects my grade. If I already know the material but am being tested in class on the same material they are teaching in class at that moment good luck making me pay attention.
@Runnin with scissors, I’m going to have to disagree with you that it affects other people. If I’m behind someone in a class who is on their phone or computer it’s distracting especially if they’re watching a video. I don’t want to watch their screen, but it gets in my periphery when I’m listening to the lecture and it bothers me
@TriangleTesticles, it's not their fault your attention is on them you control your own eyes do you not?
@Ghoaxst, I said I don’t watch their screen but I see it in my vision nonetheless and it breaks my concentration. Distraction is not something people have conscious control over
@TriangleTesticles, but it is? For instance you are in a classroom in this hypothetical. Joe your hypothetical classmate who sits just infront of you and to the right is watching pron on his phone amidst the middle of class. You are trying to cram hypothetical knowledge for some hypothetical test tomorrow. Out of the corner of your eye you see some tig ol bitties and your concentration is broken. What exactly is stopping you from standing and moving to another seat? Or drawing the speakers attention to the culprit of your distraction? I'm not trying to be mean or say this is you but you do have control over your own actions not the actions of others so therefore where does the fault lie?
@Ghoaxst, The fault lies in the person being disrespectful to his fellow students and making them go through that ordeal. People need to learn to be adults and put away their technology for an hour
@TriangleTesticles, I'm not saying it isnt disrespectful only that you have absolutely no control over the actions of anybody but yourself. You cant just expect everyone to act right, that's just pretentious. Now itd be a blessing from heaven for everyone to act just and mature. But in our reality that doesnt exist, sadly. The only persons actions you can force to be just and mature and that's yourself and yourself alone. Not saying you cant be a positive influence on others. But you also have to understand the fact that some people just dont give a hoot.
That’s a HOLEY Bible....get it? #dadjokes
@Pubmarine Shamwich, I like this guy
