You worship a god that demanded murder. You can dance around this fact all you wish, it just makes you look in denial all the more.

I would like to know where God demanded that anyone be murdered.
Do you know the definition of murder?
Murder is an unjust killing. Now do you think ordering people kill due to them try to sway you from your god is just? The Christians here seem to think this is a moral thing to do. Reminds me of the Jihadist's. Probably because it is exactly like the jihadist's.
Deuteronomy 13 6-10. The supposed god is ordering the people to murdere. Well it is murder in my eyes, because I see it as unjust.

My argument about the bible is, it teaches immoral practices. This is the perfect example.

First, I do not believe the god you worship is a frog.
But keep running from the debate. The bible is teaching an immoral practice in the name of a moral god.
I really don't care what you worship, the fact remains, the bible is teaching an immoral practice in the name of a moral god.

Got it?
Now either join the intellectual discussion about this, or just keep playing immature games and look in denial.

6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for
ever. Amen.
AMEN!
BLASPHEMY! Say it properly or take it out of the schools!
It is seen as a sacrilege to say it as you did, by Catholics. Just as the Jehovah Witnesses see saying the pledge as a sacrilege.
Keep public schools secular for these reasons.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

As long as you keep that indoctrination at church and not in public schools, this is your freedom to have in America.
Did you ever go to a school other than on Sundays?

The Bible in an inanimate book.

If you really don't care what anyone worships, why are you repeating your mere opinion of it? Are you trying to demand others see things as you see them?

The Bible is an inanimate book.
The bible is an inanimate book.

Anything else beyond that, is mere opinion of reader perspective.

Got it?

(and until you get THAT, there is no basis for intellectual discussion).

However, I will agree with you on this.

Mostly because debts are not the only tresspasses (ie:sins) people make in this old world (be they intentional or unintentional).

Atheists cannot sin against the Holy Spirit, only believers. If you are lying to promote your religion or just a idiot who believes and expects us to believe you without testing your evidence and your claims you are fool.
If you believe and had faith the size of a mustard seed you could perform a miracle which I and others could witness, test and verify.
Note: Scientist have aready perform things that could be believed as miracles and they are not. So don't say that scientific breakthroughs are miracles.
So put up or shut up.
i dont believe in miracles, just as i dont believe in god. not once did i say i did. way to jump to a conclusion, i bet u thought u were really puttin me in my place huh? lol

Not sure what your point about the bible being inanimate is about? Care to actually say instead of expecting mind reading?

"Untill I get that"? Are you demanding I see things as you see them?

First, hypocritical as always. Second, I get the book is inanimate. Now care to make a point?

Lol at God writing the Bible. The Bible was written by men. It says so itself. Those men who wrote it do claim devine inspiration, and they believed God guided them -or we believe that to be so.

Ifvthe bible is taught in schools then so be the holy koran and every othet religious text. Fair is fair.

Tea Party lady: Ted Cruz is eligible because “Canada is not really foreign soil”
August 23, 2013
By Anomaly

Ted Cruz’s eligibility for a presidential run has come under scrutiny. Now watch the hypocrisy here:

In 2008, Republican voter Christina Katok of Walden said she believed Obama was ineligible for the job because he was born in Kenya and therefore wasn’t a “natural born” American, even though there is ample proof to the contrary.

But she feels that Ted Cruz is eligible because “Canada is not really foreign soil.” Except that it is. It always has been.

Murder is the unjust killing of a person.
You have made the egregious error of assuming murder where none occured.
In my opinion ,your error in reaching the wrong conclusion can be attributed to 1 of 3 reasons.
Either;
1)you did not read all that is included in The Book of Deuteronomy ,
2) You read it and failed to grasp the reasons for the rules and commandments
3)You arbitrarily ignored the facts contained in the Book
That would lead one to conclude that the basis for your allegations are very weak and totally baseless.

God gave explicit instructions as to how those whom He freed from bondage should conduct themselves and what their relationship to Him must be if they were to fare well in the land he gave them.
He put a blessing and a curse before them.
The rules and commandments were given , so that if they adhered to His Commandments all would go well with them.
Everyone was made well aware of the rules and the consecuences for disobedience.
When all these rules and commandments were explained to all the people , they declared AMEN.
All these rules and commandments are enumerated in the Book of Deuteronomy.
To those who believe in God, the rules ,commandments and the punishment applicable for disobedience made sense then and make sense now.
To those who do not believe in God , the rules and commandments do not make sense because they are unable to grasp their importance and significance and the role they play in our relationship with God

So long as you DON'T say "blah blah blah, pass the vodka" (an inanimate, ignorant clause)...I will think about it. If you DO post something similar, I may curse you...by wishing... a can of V8 to jump up and slap you in the forehead.

Inanimate:
Relating to nouns for nonliving things: belonging to the category of nouns that refer to things and concepts considered to be without life.

God's stiff punishment for rape of virgins is 5 bucks? If a guy masturbates it is death. Now I get it.

A loophole in God's law that allows horny men to rape virgins for 5 dollars and stock up on them to avoid mastubating and be sentence to death.

I understand the tale. I see no mystery here. Seems you guys
Just think it is ok in some circumstances to kill due to religious beliefs or preaching. It is never justified to kill over. And Until you get that, this religious dogma will forever haunt your religion. It is one large reason people are becoming atheist.
Due to 9/11 some introspecting their own beliefs and seeing immoral concepts such as this. It is the sort of dogma that lead to 9/11.
I cannot think of a more direct example that should illustrate the story is of no moral god, and thus likely no god at all.
But please give giving excuses for your gods immoral behavior. It will enlighten someone eventually to the denial needed to have faith.
