What are you talking about?
Who's saying anything about Russia?
You're the one who referred to REAL natives.
I just reminded you that the REAL natives were the ones slaughtered by those same Christians who went on to celebrate Thanksgiving.
"The only good indian is a dead indian" You do know it was a Christian who that phrase is attributed to?
Doesn't matter-it wasn't a REAL christian start with saying such an UGLY thing then-just another hateful heathen, in a world full of many.

(and the Russia thing was many posts ago-as in any further mention would be redundant, as not worth the time of any further discussion )

Stick around, you'll see plenty of Christian hatred in here. In particular, you'll find that it's mainly directed towards atheists and homosexuals.

If the Russia thing is redundant then it's best not to bring it up, eh?

<quoted text>You have yet to give a reason why you feel it was not an insulting comment.
You simply give excuses why the priest was allowed to give his insulting point of view. No one is arguing this point. I am well aware a priest can insult anyone he wishes in his church. It does not excuse it though.
You are the only one claiming that the priest insulted someone's religion
That someone whom you claim was insulted has never made that claim.
You state that you don't know if she felt insulted.
In essence , you have self proclaimed yourself as the defender of an event that only you find insulting while implying that others should have been offended ,but were not.
Your nonsensical and illogical argument makes no sense at all.
Moreover,what YOU claim to have been an insulting statement was not directed at you.
Your uncle's wife never claimed to have been insulted and neither did anyone else,ONLY YOU felt insulted and it is very evident why you are attempting to create an issue where none exists.
Unbelief will cause that type of emotional stress where it is not warranted

<quoted text>Asking the question about if she requested the service makes no sense either. It is irrelevant. No, I cannot know what she thought of the comment I found highly insulting. And none of us will know, because no one is going to ask her. It is over and nothing can be done except have a conversation about it. But you cannot just have a hypothetical conversation about this. Damn you are so tedious.
I found it insulting, you do not. Seems to me you are oblivious to what could be insulting to others of a different belief. How ironic.
You have self proclaimed yourself as a spokesperson for other beliefs " religions" that YOU Do Not represent.
Like you said" You found highly insulting" and no one else did.
How Ironic

Duquettes uncles wife?
You know how that goes...he said, the priest said, they said, she said and blah blah and blah.
And sometimes, somewhere in amongst all the twisted and distorted, the REAL truth stands, still.
So you did not use the word "liar" and somewhere in your mind that is not what twisting and distorting an claim is?
But again, why does it even matter if any of this ever even happened? Could we just not have a conversation about what is right or wrong? I found it wrong to say what the priest said. Do you?
Seems you theists are to scared to discuss this and divert with bullshit like this.
It is wrong for you to attempt to create an issue where none exists.
That is Cacafuego.
No one, other than you ,felt insulted by whatever the priest said.
Could well be , you misinterpreted what he said....
Then , you wanna have an intelligent conversation based on your opinion that those who have not claimed to have been insulted , were insulted , according to your standards and not theirs.
What kind of cockamamie nonsense is that?

That's not a Belief, That's a Diagnosis...
So ,You have self proclaimed yourself as being able to analyze your parents and have found them to be delusional.
Have you shared your findings with them?
Were they able to understand how you arrived at your conclusion?
If you believe that your analysis is correct , does that not form part of your BELIEfS?

"So ,You have self proclaimed yourself as being able to analyze your parents and have found them to be delusional."

Yes because I actually enjoyed that whole higher education thing...

"Have you shared your findings with them?"

No, some people enjoy their delusions...

"Were they able to understand how you arrived at your conclusion?"

See above....

"If you believe that your analysis is correct , does that not form part of your BELIEfS?"

I don't believe my diagnosis is correct, I Think it is correct from the evidence presented and is modifiable if new evidence is acquired.. No as Belief requires no evidence and I do not form opinion without evidence... No Belief required...

You talk about atheist hatred, yet atheists aren't the ones with *holy* books containing various instructions to kill people.

Now that's hatred.

You won't mention Russia but you will communism?

You know that with communism you are supposed to give your money to the collective (state)? If you refused it was death.

This is exactly the same as the god of the Bible who killed Ananias and Sapphira because they refused to give their money to the collective (church).

Forget about Marx and Engels. Here we see that communism is advocated centuries ago by none other than your god.

No problem - I get it.
Now, get back to glorifying genocide, slavery and the killing of homosexuals.
YAA, Kractu , in his foolish state of mind,makes a truly illogical statement which he claims he understands.
His claim that I had faith in God and now that I have found him,I have lost my Faith in Him ,can only emanate from one whose mind is totally bereft of any semblance of intellectual reasoning.
That condition , alien to Christian reasoning , is to be found running rampant in the Atheist Community.
True!
Also...
They say they have more morals, tolerance, kinder... etc...
than we do...
Playing Black ops 2 a while back on the Xbox, I got a voice message from a guy, ranting about how judgmental, mean, and hypocritical We Christians are....
I sent a message back... "Notice... I wasn't the one that messaged you... telling you just how nasty atheists are!"
I've not gotten a response, and I am hoping he figured it out!
We see on here... These have not figured it out!

And I might add I was raised a Southern Baptist and attended Sunday school and 2 services a week until I was 11 or so until I figured out what a load of bunk they laid out in order to get people to come and toss money in the pass around plate or take the kids money in little envelopes at Sunday school so the preacher and his family could afford a new car, fine cloths and vacations to the Bahamas.... I realized the indoctrination I and my friends were being subject to and simple walked away ... Your Religion is a matter of place of birth more than any other factor... If you had been born in China you more than likely would have been a Buddhist, Middle east Jewish or Muslim .. You become the religion your Parents programed you to be... Intellect and Rational mindsets can undo such programming but an individual with a Irrational mindset and is Delusional general can't ...
I always use the guy in a padded room in a straight jacket that has an on going conversation with Abe Lincoln ... To that poor delusional guy he sees old Abe sitting at the end of the bed, He has long conversations with him... He can touch him, smell him but it's but the wandering of a delusional mind so when I walk in and explain that Abe is not there, That the voices in his head are Only in his head and the experience he is having is not real he will not agree for to him in his deluded mind it becomes his reality...
Is there bad people in all religions? Yes!
Wolves in sheep's clothing...
There are people of all faiths turning to Christianity, and people like Mike, either was never a Christian to begin with, or just backslid near to the point of no return!
God has proved Himself to me, and many others...
sorry you've had such a bad time with fakers, but the fact remains... There are more fakers on the side against God, than the ones that want your money only!
Question what you 'think; you know...

Been there, done that ..And then I grew up... But I'll take the other tack... You seem to know that in the KJB the Actually wording is "Tho Shalt Not Kill" but the texts that was translated from is Written.. Murder not Kill... So that is a Error in the translation you seem to admit too... A Smart person would say that if Man translated it and made such an error on that Basic foundation of the texts such as the Ten Commandments are then other errors in translation such as the Tenth which is a Mistranslation as the KJ says "Shall Not Covet"... But the Actual Text in Aramaic is "Shall Not Take".... But then there was an earlier translation series where the Aramaic was translated into Greek and in doing that the Greek didn't differentiate between some terms... In the case of the word "Virgin" that comes for translating the term "Young Girl" as it was written in Aramaic... When the Aramaic was translated to Greek was a translation error that gives up a Virgin Birth when in the Original Aramaic the word "Virgin" never appears Anywhere in the biblical texts...
Then there are the words "love," "mercy" and "compassion" All used Specifically with differing meaning in Aramaic but in the Greek they are used interchangeably... and so in the KJB which was translated from the Greek those words are used in the wrong places some times and some times correctly...
Then there is that whole Lord is my Shepherd error... At the time the Aramaic was written a Shepherds were symbols of might, ferocity and royalty ... So the Term "Lord is my Shepherd" was taken as a metaphor for "Lord is a man of war" or "Lord is Royalty" but when translated the idea of Shepherd was peaceful and guiding of a flock.. So the Whole Meaning of that Basic precept of modern Christianity of the Shepherd watching over his sheep and the lords followers being a flock ect. Comes from a difference if Meaning of the word between one time frame and another...
Does any of the mean a hill of beans?
Lets look at it!
(1) Yes, The Lord is Lord of all, King of Kings, Ruler of His people, whether a shepherd watching over his flock, or a King His people.... makes no difference!
(2) There are still Hebrew texts of the Pentateuch, and the Torah,
yes the translation to the Greek Septuagint has many variants!
(3) 5700 copies of hand copied manuscripts dating from the first century to the advent of the printing press!
(4) With these manuscripts, we can compare, and have revealed
that there are 40,000 variants in these manuscripts, but...
99% of them are like the use of 'a', where 'an' should be used!
(5) That leaves (1%) error in NON Catholic Bibles!
(6) These errors have been diligently scrutinized, and
fixed (generally), as does it matter 'Love', or 'Charity'?

How many deliberate lies, and misrepresentations are in todays science, and history books???
.
See... I know the Bible is true, as the God of that Bible showed up...
And SAVED ME!

Now... You can BELIEVE it's all Horse pucky....
That is your right!
Have a Merry Christmas :-)
