Why is gambling a sin ?

I love playing slot machines in the casinos. It's fun to drop a twenty, have a free margerita and stand the chance of winning thousands. If you're not taking the babies milk money , what's the Harm ? Especially for us geezers who might not want to go to bible study or play shuffleboard.

It was classified a sin because that money would be better off if given to the church..

Because you should be giving that money to Gawd. Well, to Gawd's representatives here on earth anyhow.

Good for you. If you can afford it and you enjoy it, go for it.

Nothing wrong with winning, it is losing that is the sin. Sell all you have at pawnshop prices and gamble it away and come back and tell us how much fun you had.

It's only a sin when you are not in control. I gamble quite often, but small amounts and NEVER more money than I take to the casino. When I'm losing, it's two bits at a time.

Who said it was a sin, it is stoopid if you can't afford it, but it ain't no sin. Just another Christophobe thread.

It's only a sin if you believe it is a sin.

I like the complementary drinks especially a margerita in a frosty glass with a lime wedge and salt around the rim. Love those.

If they'd give out some taco's it'd be perfect.
