You are making a false comparison.
If the Law maker said "Do this, and you Will Die", and you did it anyway...
You should blame yourself!

I love ethics. It would be nice to have discussions about ethics on here, but I seriously doubt we could do it without wading through page after page of Bible thumping.
Well....
When the Creator of Everything put His laws in your heart...
I guess we'd have to present Scripture to support that!

Can you say "New Testament"...
Try Romans 1!
Fact is, I am not a Jew... I'm a Gentile, so a lot
of those health laws do not really apply to us!
Having lived the vile lifestyle, I can squarely proclaim
that it is an abomination unto the Lord!
I've repented my life, and have been forgiven...
Those sins have NO hold on me anymore, and
I wish that for Every sinner!
Repent! You WILL be Glad you did!
More of the 'pick and choose' what fits me Christian Religion. FUNNY!!

Computer programmers have a tendency to do that....
Not to mention all the other things I do, that require Logic!
Read the Bible for yourself...
You might find the answers you seek!
As for me.... God showed up, and saved me, and
Nothing anyone could say, or do, will make me Love Him any less!
Hope you get the chance to know what I'm talking about!
There's the rub, I'm an Atheist because i have READ the Bible. Nice try though...

Did God talk to you when he "showed up"?

You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,“that I am God.
13 Yes, and from ancient days I am he.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
So you interpret this literally? So something can come from nothing and intelligence needs no intelligent creator? According to the passages here, this would be so, yet you guys keep insisting otherwise.
You can't have it both ways pal.

Just because a science class is posted on YouTube, it does not make YouTube a scientific source.
The next Christian could upload a sermon and call YouTube a valid source of Christian instruction.
How about if I record a video off of YouTube onto my phone, then by proxy, my phone is a valid source of scientific knowledge, and I'll let you YouTube scholars toss that around.
ROFL
No one posted the video as a source, so your claim has no relevance.
The site was posted as a place to learn from.
If you think it is a poor place to learn from, then show your reasons. Otherwise you are making no sense.

Yaa has told the fable many time, Sasha.
God, in a loud and clear voice, told him to stop trying to kill himself.
And thus the delusions began....

<quoted text>"Obama leads the charge to get Bin Laden"
In the words of my brother....
I call "BS" on this!
Obama was forced to pull the trigger, he'd rather had played golf with Osama!
ANY POTUS would have had to... When he was found!
He'd have called it "Work place violence" if he could have, and give him three hot's, n a cot for life!
Obama is NOT a Good American!
Bush pulled the intelligence crew away from the search for Bin Laden. Obama put the focus back on, thus leading the charge.
Do you know what leadership means?

Oh, Sasha, I forgot to mention that it was old Yahweh from the bible who spoke to Yaa.
Not any of those other gods.
Just the god of Hebrew goatherders.

<quoted text>Genesis
6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the
earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his
heart [was] only evil continually.
6:6 And the LORD repented that he had made man on the earth, and
it grieved him at his heart.
6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created,
from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the
creeping animal, and the fowls of the air; for I repent that I
have made them.
6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
.
Note the word "Evil"...
Much like today with the Baby killers, and all that other ILL garbage!
So baby killers are murderers yet when god kills babies he is a good deity?
Thanks for showing you backwards logic.

You can call your dictator god, good all you wish, but if he murders babies because their parents do not believe some old dude about a flood, he is an evil murderer in my eyes.
The law maker warned no one except Noah.
You keep forgetting that important part of the fairy tale.

It is one thing to be a sociopath,admit your many flaws,feel remorseful about your behaviour ,seeing yourself as you really are and seeking help in dealing with your faults. That is called,being a realist
It is something altogether different,to be a sociopath and,based on your self imposed standards ,deceive yourself into believing you need not feel guilt or shame about your immoral behaviour,while condeming it in others and then self proclaiming yourself as being a good person.
2 adjectives for that,being a hypocrite and delusional
Those who claim to have no sin,are noted by their arrogance and deceitful nature
(NOT labeling or pointing any fingers, mind you - just generally musing about it)

Close, but a pure sociopath wouldn't feel much remorse. There's nothing to prevent them from having enough OCD to pick up religion. Religion doesn't require empathy or even an internal sense of right from wrong. What should be a dichotomy is really a pretty good fit.
What is sin? Defying the 4th commandment? Eating pork? Wearing cotton and wool at the same time? Failing to place a check or money order in a collection plate? Being a descendant of Eve? Matt. 5:19? James 2:10?
I don't lay claim to God or Jesus, you'll need to look elsewhere to find your hypocrite.

Do you need Him to slap you up side the head to know
He's real?
Every breath I take since 04, tells me He is, as I know
He loved me enough to save me, and show me things I did not know!
Whatever evidence you need... I pray you open your eyes, and God gives it to you!
But you will never see it with your eyes closed!
Yes, and if the god fails to slap me up side my head, I will continue to think he is but a myth.

So when the 9/11 terrorists made their way into America, you held Bush responsible?
