Lol, that special topix/kjv understanding being used by the religies once more.

job 40.17(I think)kjv
"He moves his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his stones are wrapped together."

The religie special topix/kjv understanding points to dinos.

The verse does not say as big as a cedar it says it moves like a cedar.

The verse speaks of stones wrapped together.

You would think no religie has ever seen a crocodile, and in the nile area(egypt) they have crocodiles, lots of those nasty behemoth, leviathan, and dragon type crocodiles, o my.

Poof, there it is, lmao.

Well, jesus taught, love love love, why would you have to defeat atheism, just love us to death or are you skeered of our inability to see your delusions?

I've got nothing against atheists; I just don't like the way the fundamentalist faction attempts to shut religion out of the public square and our public schools. I'm not reacting from fear; I'm forcing you to deal with the issue of freedom of religion. Of course, bible study in school! Where do you want them to learn about religion, on the streets?

What you do not understand is that freedom of religion gives me the right to be free from your religion.
Forcing my child to read your bible and telling my child that the bible is fact is a violation of my childs right to be free from your religion.
Reading the bible is why I do not believe in god.
So should children be taught that it is OK to have sex with their fathers?

NOBODY is supposed to be "forced" to deal with the "issue" of religion, Brain_D. THAT'S WHAT THE FIRST AMENDMENT GUARANTEES. People like YOU are the ones that MAKE it an ISSUE!

Of course Bible study in school - SUNDAY SCHOOL.

Forcedom of religion, lol, good one. You could start by teaching the bible in your tax free temples and such. Public school is just that public not religiously run, this ain't iran brian, here forcing by fundamentalist religies will not work. Our tax dollars would be better spent on real things not imaginary gods like the kjv one.

Lets not ignore calls for "Christian" boycotts of Universal and Blockbuster for "The Last Temptation of Christ", Sony for "The Da Vinci Code", Warner Bros. for "the Hobbit", New Line Cinema for "The Golden Compass", etc.
It seems that you don't have to do much to get on the Christians' bad side. Boycotts have been called on 7-Eleven, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Airlines, American Girl, Blockbuster Video, Burger King, Calvin Klein, Carl's Jr., Clorox, Comcast, Crest, Ford, Hallmark Cards, B. Dalton, Kmart, Kraft Foods, S. C. Johnson & Son, Movie Gallery, ABC, PBS, Microsoft, MTV, Books-A-Million, Mary Kay, NutriSystem, Old Navy, IKEA, Sears, Pampers, Target, Tide, Walt Disney Company, PepsiCo, Archie Comics, General Mills, Ralston Purina, Domino's Pizza, Mazda, Noxell, Walden Books....
And then there is/was the decades long farce that Proctor and Gamble was run by Satanists...
Jehovah's Witnesses do not boycott anything. It is not our assignment ot try to police the world. We are told to preach the good news of God's kingdom Matthew 24:14 and to go teach Matthew 28:19,20 If we spend our time doing those things and leave the wickedness of this world to Jehovah to take care of we will be doing what Jesus referred to as doing Gods will.

JWs are not allowed to vote in any election. How is that not a boycott?

I just got to watch the Sparlock video. It was funny how the JWs who hadn't heard of the video thought it was made by Apostates and then had to do a 180 after they found out their cult put it out. If anyone wants a good laugh at the JWs check this out before they ban it all. Its funnier than the sign language masturbation video.

Be that as it may, I did not say "JWs ban" - I only provided a small sampling of works banned by various Christian bodies. I do not distinguish Catholics, Protestants, JWs or "other." If somebody professes to being an automobile, who am I to quibble whether they are a Yugo or a Rolls Royce? If they profess to being an automobile and bovine feces comes out the tail pipe, that's a different issue.

What is the difference between a religion and a cult.
A cult does not allow its followers to ask questions and is always vague when answering questions E.G. "you do not understand the bible"
A religion expects its followers to ask questions and tries to answer any questions

The next time that you see a group of kids in front of the grocery store collecting money for some church function ask them what church sends children out to beg.
This exploitation of children for profit is an abomination to our society.
If it is a function for the children the parents should raise the money, not make beggers of their children!
Whether it is a good cause or not is not the issue, The issue is making your chilren be beggers, begging from strangers.

Damn. By that definition we're neither a religious country NOR a republic - we are a worm bucket of political cults.

I have been asked how can I believe in Satan and not believe in "god".
Satan is a title meaning adversary or opposer not a name.
But Satan is also an idea the idea that we have reasoning ability and the ability to choose.
Humans can think far beyond simple concepts and can jump to abstract conclusions as well as make choices based in information.
So how did this become an idea? Because certain groups would like to limit this free will.
And the term "free will" is how the idea relates to Satanism. The bible states that the Jewish "god" denied humans free will by prohibiting Adam and Eve from eating from the tree of knowledge while Satan told Eve that it was OK to gain the knowledge of good and evil. Thus it was Satan who gave humans free will.
Satanism is the idea (or concept) of free will, that which the christian cult wishes to deny us.

This is not to condemn but to help the christians to understand,
You say that you are under grace not the law so you can ask forgiveness and be forgiven.
I say to you that is NOT WORSHIP! If you claim to worship a god then you can not ignore his words just because you but have to ask for forgiveness.
HAS THE EARTH PASSED AWAY? THEN YOU ARE UNDER THE LAWS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT!
“For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 5:18-19 RSV) Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so.
2) All of the vicious Old Testament laws will be binding forever. "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." (Luke 16:17 NAB)
3) Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn’t the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place." (Matthew 5:17 NAB)
3b) "All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB)
3c) "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God." (2 Peter 20-21 NAB)
MORE PROOF THAT THE CHRISTIAN CULT DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GOD
If you WORSHIP god than you should follow the laws that he handed down
