If you want to believe that, fine. But Westboro Church does not represent all Christians. In fact, not all Jews are the same, not all Catholics are the same, not all Muslims are the same, etc. Religions are unlike small groups in that the motives are different. I know atheists that are just as zealous as Christians, does that mean ALL atheists are zealots??? No. lol!<quoted text>When individuals work as a group, E.G. the Westburro baptist church, it is the collective whole that the responsibility for the actions are placed upon. Same for a larger group of people who say they are "good" and condemn every one who does not follow their beliefs.
Yes, there are some good people who TRY to follow the teachings of their Christ, they are few and far between. The majority of "christians" are a social club (cult) that want to elevate themselves and defame others. They pass judgment on every one else and try to force their desires on to every one.
The bible is a fictional book, but christians claim that it is "the word of god" so by their claim it is the god they worship that has demanded animal blood ritual sacrifice (dont we condemn the Aztecs for that?) and placed the price of a virgin (as well as demanding the death of girls who get raped) etc...
Each and every evil act in the bible was written to justify the Jewish peoples actions. But this is what todays christians claim to worship.
In reality christians do not even read their bible and make stuff up or change it around.(how do you change god telling you to rejoice as you bash babies against rocks?) They worship social status and wealth not some imaginary god.
Most of todays christians use church to justify their hate and perversions just like the Jewish people did when they made up the bible
Much of the Bible is historic fact. Many of those wars did happen, many of those kingdoms did exist, many of the people, like Samuel who told the people God's warning of having a government, did exist, etc. What is fictitious is the supernatural stories - but by claiming the whole Bible is a lie is to look very ignorant.
"Most of todays christians use church to justify their hate and perversions just like the Jewish people did when they made up the bible." So INDIVIDUALS are to blame for their actions?! lol!
Since you refuse to look up the word "customs", given you keep mentioning them out of context. I will reply to you no further. Thank you for the disucssion.
