Thanks for sharing your baseless assumptions. They are as irrelevant and meaningless as your false accusations. Have a nice day. Will you be providing the post numbers anytime soon that demonstrate the "hatred of Christians" you accused me of? I'm still waiting. Thanks so much.

cult and fundie. Any other derogatory terms you would like to use?
Fundie is an abbreviation, that doesn't make it derogatory. if you wish to see it as such, that's your issue, not ours.

And Christianity most certainly can be described as a cult. It exhibits all the characteristics of a cult. Again, your dislike of that FACT isn't our issue.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A CULT

* The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader (God) and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.

&#8234; * Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged

* Members are given a new identity (confirmation, baptism, born again, etc)

&#8234;* Mind-altering practices (such as repetition, prayer, chanting, speaking in tongues,) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

&#8234; * The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel

*&#8234; The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members.

* &#8234; The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.

&#8234;* The leader (God) is not accountable to any authorities

* &#8234; The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary.

* &#8234; The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.

&#8234;* Subservience to the leader (God) or group can require members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.

&#8234; * The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

&#8234;* The group is preoccupied with making money.

&#8234;* Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.

&#8234; * Members are encouraged to live and/or socialize only with other group members.

&#8234;* The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be.

Pretty much describes every denomination of Christianity.

Communicate to us that you do NOT hate Christianity.
And this all goes away.
The only one looking foolish here is you so far.
This is your chance to change that.

You know nothing of what I know but I you clearly haven't demonstrated that you are an idiot . That isn't name calling, either - it is an emperical observation.
And who cares about what a typically liberal would respond??? Are you so enamored to your agenda and catch phrases that you can't think for yourself? Are you a Mike Savage sheep?

Well sheep of god, stop smoking so much dope. Your long winded streams of consciousness are lame. Here my response to you, reposted from a while back:
1) Marriage is a basic human right. Denying marriage licenses to gay couples for the sole reason of matching genitalia is unethical, unfair and hurtful.
2) What total strangers do with their lives doesn't change who you are or your marriage. That goes for total strangers who are also gay. So stop trying to tell others they need your personal "genital check approval" to get married.
3) The fact that government thinks they belong in the business of regulating marriage is something I think deserves some serious reflection.
4a) Marriage requires NO religious affiliation whatsoever and religious affiliations have ZERO say in marriage.
4b)…besides, if there is a god and he didn't want people to be gay, then they wouldn’t be gay!
5) Marriage does NOT require sex or reproduction.
6) Sex and reproduction do NOT require marriage.
7) Only dolts can't figure out how to understand #5 & #6.
8) What turns you on sexually,… well turns you on! Nobody chooses what gets them going. If you happen to get turned on by a member of the same sex, well that's just the way it is and only a fool would deny that (goes for straights too).
9) Gay marriage has nothing to with polygamy. Or necrophilia. Or pedophiles, Yankee fans, vegetarians, liberals, conservatives, incest, or sex with animals. Only mindless drones try to turn the discussion into those kind of fake points.
