    Pastafarians usually answer with "Ramen" instead of "Amen" :slight_smile:

    I chose other because, while sometimes it is annoying, I know that they're just reposting and trying to show their faith. I do, however, hate when they try to make you feel bad. For example, "Type "AMEN" or you're not a true Christian." LOLSAYWAT? A true Christian would never say something like that.

    I dislike it, so I usually share the typing amen doesn't do crap memes... I'm kind of an ass sometimes. I quite FB for the most part, just pop on it to check on some family and that is about it.

    All the world's information and knowledge just a few clicks away...

    And all we do is argue about politics, write on walls and worship cats.

    I'll second this, again.

    I used to get the Satan thing a lot, so I started making jokes about it.

    Saying I would make a cult in the cafeteria, the "Satinists" and our robes would be made of only the finest silks. We would praise Satin on our altar and sacrifice lesser fabrics to our sewing machines. Instead of Hymns, we had Hems and the sturdiest pants of all.

    "Oh, you doubt us and our lord Satin? You can't disprove it! Your logic is merely hanging by a thread"

    Huh. I just made this thread a literal thread now that I think about it. Oh well. Hail Satin!

    I'm an atheist; I just ignore that shit. It's no more or less annoying than all the "some tragedy happened to this person!!!1! one like = one prayer" or those stupid "my *insert family member here* promised to *insert action here* if I could get *insert number of likes*". Call it my rebellious nature, but if something tells me to do something: "like" or "type amen" or if it's click-bait-y BS that practically begs you to click it, I go out of my way to not do what it says. :grin:

    I mostly use FB for news and stuff like that. I don't care about most of what's on it.

    I usually ignore stuff like this.

    If someone is repeatedly sharing/liking such posts I simply unfollow or block them.

    Just ignore them, if you feel like they do something stupid then don’t say amen in order to avoid being stupid as well.

    No, I don't have facebook. And in the UK, nobody does that, we aren't quite as christian as Americans. If the UK had a Bible belt anyway it wouldn't make as much of a difference because it's less fat wide than America. I'm going off topic now.

    I bet that religious batman has a Bible Belt...

    I rarely use facebook, and also being atheist I never pay attention to any of the religious mumbo jumbo on there.
