<quoted text>You have no idea of how ridiculous you sound do you? You're trying to convince everyone you worship a "loving god"....telling gay people to ask forgiveness(??????)from him(?) for, in your mind, "creating" them like this...because if not then this "LOVING" god is going to BURN them in HELL FOREVER, his OWN children....BURN FOREVER for BEING who HE MADE them. HUH? Oh, and how's that "stoning" goin' for ya'all on all your christians that have gotten divorced or had SEX outside of a "marriage bed"? Why, oh why, aren't you DOING what YOUR god tells you to do? Why aren't you TAKING CARE of your neighbors, opening your doors to STRANGERS as your god has demanded? Do you visit the prisons regularly like your god tells you because after all he does say that is where he lives. And OMG, why are you involved in a discussion on politics? Your god proclaims govt' is the devils work and your are not to partake in it in anyway except living by it's rules NOT getting involved. YOU are a FALSE christian. Now, go pray on that for awhile.

You come into this forum and tell me that I'm not OK, that I need to apologize for the way I am, I need to change my thinking to be like you, and I need to bow down to your God or I'm not right and then have the gall to say I insulted you? Wyy you pompous little fuqing prick.

Interesting you should ask me to shut the F up when all that's on this thread is how proud you all are to be gay. Why don't I ask the same thing of you all? Interesting how your lifestyle is one full of ridicule and judgment yet I strike a nerve when I vocalize my beliefs. This country used to be founded on mine, not yours. Trust me, our founding forefathers would be disgusted if they read what you all are proud of and write about.
Hey you bigoted moron not gay! LOL,And the fact still remains that this country is in fact a secular nation! Take that bible into court and try to use it as evidence! You'll be laughed out of court in a mile-second! Again keep it in your church and away from others who don't give a crap about your brainwashed brain! Try a little logic and critical thought! It seems that you are grossly lacking in both! Next!

Which God? There have literally been hundreds since the beginning of mankind. Every one of them thought the God's they were worshiping were real too. So which one? Shiva? Osiris? Zeus? Ra? Odin? Christ? Allah? Jehovah? Baal? Khrisna? Ahriman? El? Ahru Mazda?

Exodus 33:18-23 (NASB)
18 Then Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!"
19 And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion."
20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!"
21 Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock;
22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.
23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."
Note;
-Seeing God was a life-threatening danger.
-God used three forms of protection for the radiation;
Behind a rock
Shielded with His hand
Only allowed a partial view (back)
Exodus 34:29-35 (NASB)
29 It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.
30 So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
31 Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers in the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them.
32 Afterward all the sons of Israel came near, and he commanded them to do everything that the LORD had spoken to him on Mount Sinai.
33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.
34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded,
35 the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.
Note; The effect of radiation.
Please explain how a accurate description of radiation's danger, affect and protection appeared in a story about a Alien visiting humans in a fiction book written by numerous authors, distorted by time and translation occurred.

How did that appear in your Alien fairy tale? Simple answer. It didn't. You are just suffering from the delusion that it does. Because your brain doesn't work right.
Ah, so silly obvious mahz...

You can't deal with something that is understandable, so you demand we change the subject to something that isn't.

Here is what exposes your bigotry;

-The Bible is full of things we cannot explain. That perfectly fits the concept of a God.

Bigoted and ignorant people focus on these things and mock them. Purely because they don't like the things in the Bible they DO understand.

- However, it is ALSO full of things we can explain, but have no explanation of how they got in there.

Honest and reasonable people note these and ponder them. They honor the sacred and study the speculative. They are not afraid of things that confront their behavior.

This incident is one of them.

Your denial is exposed in denying a clear description of radiation with only an ad homoan attack on me!

You are a sissy chicken sh/t afraid to face the reality of your brokenness.

Without wasting time distinguishing the distortions of your 'list', of course there are examples of those who violate Christian beliefs in the name of Christianity.

The same is true of any belief system. Human brokenness always has taken advantage of good to disguise evil. Wolves in sheep clothing.

A honest handful of legitimate violations is hardly a reason to dismiss the astounding expression of concern and care that goes on every single day in every single community across this country.

Your silly attempt to do so only exposes your brokenness and denial. A blatant attempt to destroy anything in the way of your denial, no matter what the price.

In your own words, "Human brokenness always has taken advantage of good to disguise evil."

A more apt description of the Christian religion could not be found.

Those aren't just examples, they are a pattern of behavior that the Christian faith has demonstrated throughout it's history. Christianity was spread across this planet at the point of sword or a gun and you're ignorant of history if you think otherwise.

Standing in the way of my denial? BWAHAHAHA. I'm not denying anything, I'm demanding proof. You see, that's how rational thinking works. You claim there is this magic man in the sky who is all powerful and created everything, yet somehow, even though he is an all powerful and loving God, child leukemia is part of his master plan. I need just a little proof and some rational explanation of why he kills millions ever year with acts of God.

Sorry, but saying "this English translation of a Greek translation of an original Hebrew translation of an Iron age allegorical tale is defacto proof that Moses understood the finer points of radioactive decay" is slightly unbalanced.

You're the one in denial here, bub. Denial about the fact you don't know whether God exists. You have no proof, you only believe it in your heart to be true, with no proof.

How can the son of God, be the one and only true God?

That's two God's. The father and the son. How can he be the one and only?

Jesus never claimed to be the one true God. It is a distortion of his message. He wasn't saying he was a God at all. He said God was his father. He was God's son and you are all children of God exactly like him and could have the same personal relationship. Jesus wasn't God nor did he ever claim to be.

Belief systems are far more than just religious.

The real question is, how does a belief system explain and deal with the problem of evil?

For instance, why did a broken mind kill 26 innocent people? Why not just himself? What screams like the CT mayor said, "Evil visited our community today."

Your denial of sexual brokenness is a much smaller example, but no less poignant.
