    Saw people walking around with ash on their foreheads yesterday...

    Most seem to be giving up shit like caffeine and energy drinks for Lent ....boring

    Just once I want to meet someone who is trying to quit raping alter boys or spitting into peoples food at work

    but anyway... anyone giving up something for Lent?

    Wonder what the Stern Staff would give up if they weren't all Jews

    I gave up being Catholic around 18, when I would be too hung over for my pop to force me to go to church.

    This. I have a hard time being told to give shit up for a month by a Pederest in a white gown. But I usually lay off sweets and fried foods to see if I can lose a few in 40 days or so.

    I liked when I was a kid and these family-less priests were giving everyone marriage and family advice. Meanwhile half of the Catholic Church is nothing but a pedophile ring for powerful politicians and religious leaders. Priests say to give up eating meat on Fridays....but then they'll traffic pre-teen boys for daily rapes through the sex trade.

    Gefilte Fish on egg matzoh sandwiches washed down with a can of Colt 45. It's quite the sacrifice.

    I've met some nice priests in the past. And could even see the disdain in their eyes from what they've seen their church become. It's pretty sad.

    Lent is 40 days, not 40 years.

    I don't get the ashes on my forehead, that was always a little too much for me.

    I do give up sweets for Lent every year.

    I also give up eating meat on Fridays during Lent.

    Not so much for any religious reason but, more as a way to reduce my sugar intake for a while.

    It's sort of a cop-out since I don't eat much sweets to begin with but, as soon as I give it up, that's all I can think about eating.
