I'm a none believer and i played alot on pokerstars, i have gone through phases where i've seen many jesus avatars regularly in a day. If im in a bad mood or having bad results i might get into an arguement about relligion or their use of jesus, but really i dont think it matters or influences anything to do with the game and if it bothers someone so bad they can turn the pics off. Spade Club Heart Diamond Speaking on another note, i think it is pathetic in this day and age with all the knowledge, facts and evidence slapped in our faces that people choose to ignore and believe the christian bible about how the earth was "created" blows my F***in mind!! Aww crap!

The story of Adan and Eva its obviously a lie, thats a fact, there is no way to denie it. If the life of Jesus Christ is lie then the Entire Christianism its living in a lie.
What bothers me is not people the people that choose to follow a religion (muslim, christian, hindu etc), what bothers me is that some people look like living in the cruzades time. Some Christians still lives in the ignorance, but the worst its the agnostics that criticize all time the religion but they are the ones that look like they still live in the jungle.
Iam 30 years and i dont have any problems to live with the religion, iam not fanatic, i acept that my religion made lots of mistakes and lies before, but we are not in the "middle era" anymore, before people was ignorant cause they didnt had a choice, but now people can choose whats best or worst for they lifes.
Unfortunately our society doesnt learned from the own mistakes and its not the religion fault, its our fault, so better stop blaming religion for everything bad when we are the ones choosing to live in a society without rulles, we are the ones still making wars with no purpose for that.

Fingers lets not forget that the bible was written and re-written dozens of times in different eras by humans like us, some of them with only one purpose; adapt the bible to theyr own benefit.

On topic:
If people are taking the piss out of religion in their avatars - good.
If people are using images of "the lord" "jesus" "allah" etc in the wrong context - good

I think religion is a serious and I mean VERY serious plight upon this world - and it deserves no respect or tolerance.


this is ghastly jess. its this kind of lack of respect that allows such tragedies to continue. I dont care if you believe in worshiping beany babies. its your right and the only time its an issue is if someone tries to infinge on your beliefs.

Whether you believe in something or not it is not your right to actively slander others because of it.

Religion has no place in poker as poker is gambling and as a Roman Catholic who does go to church i get guilted hella times for it. The issue isnt gambling. Its taking something from someone that cant afford to give it. If we all sit down and know we all are trying to outwit eachother to relieve a prize. money in this case its fine. its only when you know you are putting the loser in hardship.

Then again im sure as a Christian? catholic? im kind of lost as to what a christian catholic would be btw but aside from that. As a good christian so long as you can pay for your needs and tithe the mandatory no less then 10% of earning before taxes to the church or storehouse then you can gamble what you have left. so long as you dont do it with someone who cant afford it.

The biible ezplains all of this in detail. let it be known there is nothing todays society can encounter that the bible doesnt explain. Regardless of it its the word of god or not.

I used to play with a rosary and cross avatar long ago on my first PS account. This was a result of reading lots by rousseau and hume and thinking the social contract was adversely affected by the church. I would get cussed out by some and others would applaud me. Always for diffferent reasons then i intended. I changed it because it was offensive to the followers of religion.

missed this epic thread Sad
i dont believe in god, religion, afterlife, etc etc. i wudnt say i hate them cause that would mean giving too much importance to them .
and if there really is something like god that wants me to worship him so i can go to heaven, then sorry i wud rather burn in hell than tolerate this nonsense autocracy Big Smile

and the most funny thing i found about religion is >99% of the believers miss the real motive religion was created

Why would you gamble if you christian gambling is a sin you know Smile and aswell as religous avatars why would they put it on poker if its a sin lmao , doesnt make sense btw ive never seen these avatars anyway


That's not true at all. I don't think there is a single verse that equates gambling to sin, don't believe everything your preacher tells you, he's a fallible human being too.

@Jess: You have strong convictions, may I ask what are they based on? Also, religion isn't the problem with any of what you said, People are. 80% of the world isn't delusional they just don't think for themselves. Media, politicians and the internet all "shape the lives of others" should we draw a line there and discard them to (Well politicians for sure). I think it's naive to believe the world would change if religion is gone. Do you really think wars are fought for religion? They're fought for wealth and power, religion is just a convenient patsy, if it wasn't that it'd be something else.

God loves everyone and everything, In Gods eyes there is no right or wrong, I am a spiritual healer....
A spiritual healer you might say? YES that's right I am and guess what else WE PLAY POKER!!! We are here and if you have something against a little thing as an AVATAR!!!! then maybe you might want to learn about Spirituality. I was born a Roman Catholic also and I was taught many things which I now find are not my truths. My mum was very much religious in her way, she always prayed for us when we were sick or hurt and yet she loved playing poker, it was a weekly thing with mum and 7 aunties to play poker. So let everyone live as they will that is what we are here for. Smile Have fun at the table's guys I know I will LOLOLOL Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

Thumbs Up
i dont remember exactly what he said, but somewhat radical if i remember.
there was a time i also thought, the world would be a better one without religion, but just like you said, its naiv to think so..
we have fought thousands of years, before religion even came into our mind. its all about wealth, power and envy.
the only thing i would agree is that, the "institution church" may be danger (least it was in the medieval), not the believer itself, otherwise, the believer make the church possible to exist.
oh well, im out of this conversation, thats something that never has a end - i needed some mobpoints Smile
the menkind doesnt need the religion to make war, to oppress people or whatever....

well i haven't seen such avatars (probably because i do not see any avatars- just have them turned off) but you raised a good question- imo these avatars shouldn't be used in any form in gambling Cool
however you cannot say anything to the dudes who use it, because they do not violate any laws, really it is just up to those people...i believe their bankrolls should be taken away and donated to church (because they use a copyrighted material Big Smile )
