For those Christians who believe at least some of what they claim to believe, Good Friday is the celebration of the torturous death of the Jesus character described in their bible. It strikes me as a fairly odd thing to celebrate too. Then again, some of these Christians claim to believe that they eat the flesh of this person too, so I guess the Good Friday stuff is only strange in a relative way.
Anyway, here is what I have written so far at Atheist Revolution on the subject of Good Friday:
- Good Friday and the Other Paths to Salvation
- Good Friday: A Celebration of Torture
- Happy Dead Jesus Day!
- Good Friday: Crucify Yourself
