Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art

^what’s so bad about that?

It’s busy. And loud. Bunch of characters squished together, and crazygonuts with the colors, starflares, and sparkliness.

I mean that seems representative of the movie…And yes I’ve seen it.

This thread is about cover art that is bad, not whether what would be bad cover art is actually not because the movie is also bad.

Liberals and Democrats are not hostile to religion and Christianity in particular.

Not all, but many are.

Can you tell me why Hillary, being a Methodist herself, did not bolster her appearance as a person of the Christian faith? Can you tell me why Obama, being a member of United Church of Christ, did not openly refute accusations that he was Muslim rather than letting people carry on forever with it?

For my money, it’s because it doesn’t target their base.

 
…As opposed to Republicans, who (and this is an enormous pet peeve of mine) co-opt their so-called Christianity for political points.

smh. I get frustrated just thinking about it.

Maybe I’m looking too hard into this out of desperation, but straight guys don’t tend to analyze their bros’ sexuality, right? That isn’t exactly a “no homo” thing to do.

Is it not? Sometimes, someone can have an eccentric personality in some particular fashion and straight people might wonder (privately or amongst themselves) whether that person is gay.
I’ve known that to happen a couple times regarding friends of mine.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

I don’t understand why we have two Last Jedi discussion threads?

One was created for discussion before the movie was released; the other was created after the movie was released. Not really needed to delete this one, since there’s plenty of good discussion here.

Also, technically one is for discussion and the other is for review.
But I think the key difference at this point is that the review thread is toxic, and the discussion thread is not (yet.)

I would like to clear up the “piracy” incident. I was just putting the DVD on a USB to keep it from being scratched. I am very sorry if that is illegal too. 😥

Backing a movie up and/or putting it on another storage device for your own use, be it internal or external, is not illegal. Breaking the DRM on the disc so you can back it up is illegal.

I’m not aware that people here will berate you for backing up your DVDs (especially since I have done it with my entire library and no one bothered me much), but I’m fairly certain publicly explaining how to circumvent the DRM is frowned upon.

Ask the member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints AKA Interrogate the Mormon

I dislike how many liberally minded people whom I have seen, claim to proudly carry the banner of tolerance but have a hypocritically sanctimonious attitude. As though their self-righteousness is somehow superior to the opposing self-righteousness that they rail against. It’s bigoted on both sides, but I feel the banner of “tolerance” some carry to be disingenuous and it’s bothered me more and more lately. Speaking for myself, of course.

In fact, I’m feeling more and more like people just in general are often bigoted. People who disagree with each other, on moral, philosophical or even political views are often extremely bigoted and closed-minded, thinking themselves somehow superior because they hold their views to be correct. And it’s compounded by the echo chambers we allow ourselves to live in with the availablity of social media that allows more like-minded bigoted people to congregate and validate each other.

Stop it.

I don’t get why this is either funny or offensive.

What?

You told him to stop it. I don’t understand why. I assume you were annoyed or something, but I don’t see why. I also don’t even really understand why he said it. I assume he said it to be witty, but I don’t get the joke.

So the whole thing confuses me.

But I also don’t get why one would have a Facebook account with no facebook friends, considering the point is really to know what generally is going on with people. Otherwise your News Feed is only full of posts from Liked pages like Adywan’s SW Revisited group. To only have posts from groups would seem to me much more superficial than including posts from people you know.

That, but also Christianity is not about religion. Religion is the adherence to following rules—God says do this, so you must do it. Christianity is not about that. It’s about having a relationship with God Himself. If you actually do desire a relationship with Him and you told Him so, He will not abandon you. That doesn’t mean you can generally do whatever you please, but it does mean that you’re His child and He will not disown you simply for loving someone of the same gender, regardless of whether or not it’s perceived as wrong.

Jesus himself berated and chastized the Pharisees for making up societal rules that caused a “religious” relationship with God to become moot. Because it’s not simply about following the rules.
