    What are you giving up for lent?

    If you're not abstaining from the traditional "no meat," what are you abstaining from?

    Yes I am giving up for lent. But sometime it is broken your relation.

    Observing Lent is not among my traditions, but your question keeps slapping me in the face.  So for this Lent, I'm giving up desserts.

    I'm not giving up a thing but with ALL DUE RESPECT, you are giving up much more than a food item or some social significant.
    You are giving up your freedom to think for yourself by continuing to abide by one of dozens of man made rules and regulations simple introduced to keep, control, and track the churches congregation.
    Once they have you, these professionals aren't about to let you get away without a fight.
    You keep obeying their fairy tales and they will happily continue hauling your money to the bank. It's that simple.
    Here is your chance to help end this age-old scourge of humanity that even now as I speak, threatens to annihilate us all through endless religious wars that have already taken the lives of BILLIONS of our young not to speak of destroying just about everything we've ever managed to build.
    End this religious insanity and think for yourself for a change if your not already too far gone....

      This is funny. I'm not giving up my freedom. I have a freedom of choice. I was simply asking a question directed toward others who do follow this. And, nobody is taking my money as you so kindly implied. I have control over that as well.

    I think it's best that we fight this whole "lent" thing, or anything that keeps people indoctrinated. I understand why someone would say to respect a tradition or culture but those days are far behind us now and everyone should act accordingly.

      Well said. We either fight organized religion or one day, some brain washed moron is going to pop a cork and release a pathogen that will destroy us all. We are in an emergency situation. We either stop this insanity or you can kiss our asses good by
