    SO what have you given up for lent? I was raised Catholic, but an a card carrying atheist so I just do it for fun. I'm giving up hookers and blow.

    Man: Father, I've lost my faith.
    Priest: And how did you lose your faith, my son?
    Man: I Lent it to someone and they never returned it.

    Okay, that decides it...

    I'll give up making bad puns for Lent.

    I highly doubt that. I may even give up beating the shit out of the ole lady.... do you have to initially do it to give it up?

    I don't participate in the giving things up part of Lent, but I do reflect upon the purpose and meaning of the forty days and what they have to do with me when it comes to gratitude. Besides, I am more prone to taking things on than giving things up. I would really like to celebrate the coming spring with a new kite.

    I participate in Discordian Lent. So for forty days I take up a vice that I didn't previously.

    Just kidding. Can't think of something cheap enough to last me 40 days...

    I am Catholic but does not frequent the church, I pray directly to God. I like it, sharing my thoughts directly to Him.
