    I hope he killed many people before he died. I hope they got to hug a priest too!

    dont know what pic you’re looking at, but it’s not this one.

  3. gewalt says:

    in this pic, the soldier is not obviously religious. he is obviously wounded and seeking someone to save his life. you see what you want

  4. theshoeminator says:

    How do you know? The priest was never asked about it.

  5. necessarilyflawed says:

    Religion is definitely a powerful thing. So is electroshock therapy.

  6. gewalt says:

    I dont think you understand. that is not my argument at all. what i’m trying to say is… thats not what is in this picture

  7. theshoeminator says:

    2- He was in the midst of performing last rites on other wounded soldiers when that one pulled himself up on the priest’s cassock.

    1. You don’t need a priest for dying. The soldier was dying, he grabbed the only person who was around, who happened to be a priest.

  9. xelbar says:

    2. He probably had preferred his wife, parents or someone else he actually loved. The priest just happened to be there,

  10. xelbar says:

    3. I don’t see his importance.

    I’m just posting a link, I think the there are no atheists in foxholes saying is dumb.

  12. shoyusha says:

    True; but if he had studied medicine instead of religion this photo might have been of a medic saving a soldier’s life.

  13. MathSalts says:

    I complain that they beleive in no god of any form, not a specific one. My objection is metaphysical, not religeous

  14. MathSalts says:

    I don’t think you understand the concept of a god. It isn’t a specific being so much as a necessary concept to explain consciousness.

  15. MathSalts says:

    you keep bringing up santa claus and fairies, you need to understand that they would only be gods if they were capable of maintaining 1/2

  16. MathSalts says:

    A universe exists at all and people are conscious. Both concepts wherein the best explanations as of late are still the existence of a god.

    Priests & Soldiers – two things wrong in this world. Yet, the image still has a powerful effect. I wonder if there’s hope for humanity.
