<quoted text>This is you asking nicely? What a joke. You have no idea how hypocritical you are being, do you? You just personally attacked me and then claimed I should not do that.
I guess this is what happens when a person learns from a god that does not do what he says you should do.
Well...while I may have been giving you a dose of your own medicine right back at ya, I wouldn't exactly consider that same source of, to be any sort of "god".
And I certainly have no idea about where you might've learned that type of thing from, so I really could not logically or rationally, make any sort of comment about that.

<quoted text>Interesting. I see you actually condemned someone on your team. But I note that it only happens when someone on your team condemns something religious. I note it does not happen when they condemn something involved with what they claim is atheism.

" I was raised Catholic"....
Well.... Thars yer problem
Pardon, I didn't know this thread was comprised of teams?

As for the rest of your post, I base my opinions on individual circumstances and accordingly, not lump and label (duhm) and call it all the "same" foolishness.

Because such never is.

Parents who have been raised by television know how to raise their children by television. The Bible is a 1700 page book that has a reputation far and away more revered than its substance deserves. Is religion the cure for society's ills? Nah. A lobotomy and a prayer doesn't do much for a glandular condition.
The substance, accounts, history, prophecies and more is why the Bible has the reputation that it has. The Bible has the power to positively transform lives. Many of the ills in the world have to do with the condition of one's heart. The Bible is a perfect answer to all heart issues. Religion is not the cure to any society.

True...because a glandular condition needs a specific treatment. A lobotomy extremely defeats the purpose but prayer can do more than one might believe.

<quoted text>Yes, you do have the right to worship what you wish, even if it is a golden calf. And I have the right to point out that the god of the bible does not respect that right one single bit.
Are you implying I am harming you?
I guess you feel condemning anything religious is being of forked tongue.
Worshipping golden anything is just not my thing Duquette...as I find that tends to classify as "materialism", and that type of stuff gets a lot of people in trouble at times, so I tend to try and avoid that type of thing.
On the flip side of your opinion however, that you perceive as "the god of the bible does not respect...." does the bible not also say that the God of the bible is indeed, a jealous one?
Since you seem to thrive on OT scripture-more specifically-

Exodus 20:3 "You shall have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God...( 15otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land and they would play the harlot with their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone might invite you to eat of his sacrifice,...ETC..etc)

Therefore, anyone that would apply logic and reason, would also then have to logic, that nothing was being hidden from the tribe following Moses, as far as expectations..so thus employing further logic and reason, why would the REST of that particular "story", even raise an eyebrow with you?

<quoted text>Well trying to get past your poor use of grammar is challenging, but I think you claimed that public schools were responsible for teaching morality. Well I would hope they do, but I do not see it as the primary responsibility of government to teach morality.

I do not think the bible establishes morals, as morals have been around long before the bible.
No problem, "that" more specifically being the statement of your opinion, in the last sentence you typed as shown in the above paragraph.

<quoted text>
The country is more secular now but as far as the crime rate going down, I do not believe it is truly the case. Though, my believing does not make anything true when it is not. Thanks to the poster that posted all the earlier shootings, etc. by children in this country...it's daunting. As overwhelming as it is, it stands to reason that if when the country was following God's moral laws more closely and all of those incidents still took place, there would be even more today when most of the country does not follow God's moral laws at all. In our present time, many people are living according to their own beliefs of what is right or moral which have to do with "self" mainly. God's given standard of having no other God before Him, making no graven images, not taking the Lord's name in vain, remembering the Sabbath day, honor thy father and thy mother, do not kill, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not bear false witness and do not covet has been tossed out by many. God's standards are basically good whether one is a Christian or not.
Christianity is not a religion, nor is it or the Bible man-made.
No, the accounts in the Bible are not declared to be true, they are true. Just the same way as someone witnessing an auto accident, gives their statement to the police officer as to what they witnessed.
This country has been proud of being violent since its earliest times. History proves that & box office tickets have proved it since "The Great Train Robbery." (Hitler loved our westerns.) If you were aware of our history you wouldn't be so surprised. The cities become more crowded, the disparity between the uber-wealthy and the subsistence survivors, the us against them tribalistic trends, and the increased coverage of negativity by the media might make it appear that have become more lawless - to those who want to believe the Bible is a panacea. It isn't.
Not that facts matters to someone who denies the FACTS that Christianity is a religion, that the Bible is man made and that it contains errors and fabrications from beginning to end.

At least it doesn't change every washday like Evilution!
BTW Darwin was a Racist....
and you guys worship him!
The ORIGINAL Title of his book....
"On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection,
or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life"
Tell us like other liberals how he didn't really mean "Races"!
Darwin was a product of his time - and so was the Bible. Godot isn't coming, YaA.
Nobody worships Darwin and "Favoured Races" does not mean human whites over human blacks - it means species that are better adapted to their environment are more apt to survive and pass on survival traits to their offspring - as you well know. Stop lying to protect your psychosis, CINO.

THANK YOU :-)
You know.... I used to call Christians "Jesus freaks"....

Hoping you'll be one too!
Thanks (?), but I'm going to stick with honesty and integrity. BTW, doesn't your Bible say you aren't supposed to wish ill fortune on others? Maybe Sista can hook you up with some Hail Mary's etc. for pennance.

Integrity with a capital INTEGRITY?

The thought of YaA praying to YaA doesn't seem so farfetched, somehow... No, I was saying that YaA idolizes a martyr, but that martyr prayed to God and told others to do the same. Jesus even gave an example of how to pray - and it doesn't go "Me, who will be in heaven, Jesus be my name..."

Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't.
However, Catholicism was pretty much kicked into touch by Henry VIII back in 1534 and it never recovered after that.
It's safe to say that fleeing from English Catholicism was not why the early English settlers came to America.
It is recorded in history that many of the English settlers took a chance with their lives and the lives of their in the new world-America, was for religious freedom. There were others for prosperity, etc. but were among the many failed attempts to survive in the environment. There is more to this....

...integrity - no caps are required. I'm not a Tea Party "Patriot" so I don't need to wave a fistful of made in China U.S. flags at the monitor, either.

No, didn't watch it. Why do you ask?

It is recorded history that Williams settled Rhode Island to get away from many of those who came to the new world to practice their brand of "religious freedom."
