Yes, I know it started DAYS ago, but for all you catholics (and various christians, if they do celebrate it), lent is the 40 days/nights of sacrifice/fasting before the ressurection of JESUS.

And, generally, you either sacrifice something, or commit to doing something that will make you a better person, or make the world a better place.
Killing noobs doesn't count.
Perhaps mercy to noobs?

As for me:
avoid using gay as an insult.
It's ironic cause the church is anti-gay.
But then again, I'm extremely liberal.

OFFTOPIC:
I'm so liberal I'm pro-choice (abortion is not a no-no for me =D)

EDIT:
not so important, but I made a topic that went hot.
I feel special now =D

I would sacrifice my life for world peace, I was foolish enough to join the Canadian Army for that. However, wearing a light-blue beret (U.N. Soldier) does not really mean you bring peace, after all, the largest factor behind U.N.'s mission is the States, no matter how much they deny it.

Yes, you did.
In your sleep.
You probobly never heard.

Westside:
I laugh at the Canadian Army forever.
However, your contribution has some sort of value, concidering your intention.
You are worthy.

I'm not christian so I don't "celebrate" lent, but if I did I would give up insults. Because sometimes I insult my friends too much.

Ham Sandwich = Hell?

ehhh...
originally, it was no meat for the 40 days.
but, times have changed, and people have adjusted to the fridays only rule.
of course, the world is becoming dependant on meat (and I have no idea why, since 20lbs water = 1lb beef), and rules have to bend.

And, according to christianity, or at least catholisism, as long as you repent for anything you do, you can go to heaven.

I'm not schooled for this kind of shit >.<
I'm pretty sure that if there was no real intent to do something morally wrong, you can still go to heaven.

Here's another one:
Do people born mentally impaired go to hell because they don't (can't?) believe in God?

I dislike seafood with a passion, so I have trained myself to eat Cheese pizza on Friday's instead of meat and fish. >_>
I also will attempt to view at least 90% less hentai during the 40 days.

aurgh.
your questions anger and confuse me.
or it could be that shade of purple in your sig...

to answer that question:
If they CAN'T, then it's not their fault, thus no eternal burning.
If they WON'T, then it IS their fault, resulting in satan throwing a pineapple up your ass every day.

EDIT:
If that 10% is yaoi, it doesn't count, cause the catholic church frowns upon gayness.

RE-EDIT:
Wait, give up pr0nz forever?
or for the 40days/nights?
Also, one of my friends told me pr0nz is adultory, thus a sin.
I then killed him in the face.

I'm going to a Catholic school right now. I am personally Russian Orthodox, however I strayed so far from it I have no idea if I'm supposed to celebrate Lent by giving something up and not eating meat.

If you're not gonna flame, you may as well correct me if I'm wrong.
But I'm pretty sure about what I said.

And when I say repent, I don't mean random-ass "srry gawd, i w0n'T do iT [email protected]! kthxbailord"

I meant serious ones, so serious that they're super serial.
