Hahahhaha!
Did you ever notice....
In Islam... if you are born of a Muslim... you are counted as a Muslim
whether you want to be or not!

In Christianity... you can choose whatever you want.... notice the Atheists today!

Notice also... the indoctrination of children (by our Government) into
accepting Homosexuality as being normal...

Better not ask if a vagina was made for a penis... goes against immorality!

I've always loved this verse. The whole chapter, really, is one big graphic description of what a whore this woman is and all the people she's banged.
Ezekiel 23:19,20:
"Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."
I've no doubt you do!
Clueless....

Jesus was a liberal contesting the conservatism of the ruling class. It's what got him killed. Without denial it is readily apparent.
Jesus didn't write one word of the NT, so you guessed wrongly - again.
You paraphrased (and made a personal embellishment) from what Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai and claim that Jesus "wrote" it. That may not be delusional, but it is dishonest.
Have you forgotten "Thou shalt not bear false witness..." again or is it a permanent mental block?

Don't play the Obama does this and liberals do that card as you usually do. Refute the statement. On what day do most conservative Christians go to church? What is the current divorce rate? Where are the WMDs and the "death panels?" Tell me again how Obama caused the 2007 economic downturn and how the fat cats, moneychangers and brokers were victims of their evil clients. Which side supports zero tolerance and imprisoning people for every petty little crime?....

In Christianity, if the parents are Christian it is counted as a Christian family. If you choose to be whatever you want other than Christian, you are not "in Christianity." If someone who is Muslim, Jewish, Hindu or "other" dies, the LDS will posthumously induct them into their CHRISTIAN roles.
A given percentage of the world's humans have been, is and will be homosexual. That percentage does not radically change, so it does fit into the broad category of "normal." That is biology. Deal with it, bigot.
A vagina was not "made" or created by a god and again, that is biology - not morality or immorality. Deal with it.

Why are so many Christians addicted to porn? That bible verse it's a nerve eh?

Fifty percent of Christian men and twenty percent of Christian women report being “addicted” to pornography. What are we to make of these staggering numbers.

So if you are born of a Christian, poll takers will come ask the children if they believe what their parents believe?

Sorry, but in a free country, it is the theme to teach acceptance of others. Some call it tolerance. I would think a black person should be able to relate.
You do not determine what is moral, and I sure would not expect the bible to be a guild on morality. Heck, the bible condones slavery and killing due to religious beliefs.

Is it really giving free choice when you tell a child chose Christianity or go to hell? It is not my idea of freedom.

Leave it to someone like you to love a verse like that....
You are saying that you love donkey genitals and horse emissions.
Those types of amorous desires are better left unsaid as they make you out to be very strange indeed
In addition to that;
Your willful ignorance is superceded by your stupidity in not comprehending and putting in proper perspective that which you read.
Just saying
I think he was pointing out how wrong it would be to teach this book in public school, and how it does not sound like the words of a god.
Probably more like loving the verse for it being a great example of the craziness of the bible.

Perhaps I can provide a solution to your complaint.
Either make a citizens arrest or swear out a warrant for Aaron's arrest and allow him his day in court as you are unfit to judge him.
Watermelons make good basketballs if they are inflatable and made of rubber..

How is that a solution? Aaron is dead. I see the discussion as a solution to understanding.
Yes, watermelons do not make good basketballs. That was the point of the statement. Are you having trouble understanding sarcasm?

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Leviticus 17:11
I am aware of the claim, now if you could only show evidence these insane claims are a truth. Fact is, you cannot. It is just a superstition that makes no sense.
The persons who can forgive me of my sins are the persons I transgressed, not the person who claimed to represent all the transgressed.
This superstition leads people to forget the important part of asking for forgiveness from the person transgressed. They get hung up on asking a dead person for forgiveness. It is throwing a monkey wrench in the system of natural human instincts and moral reasoning.

That verse specifically refers to eating creatures, not atonement of sins by bleeding humans or demigods. In context it's just a superstitious rationale for disposing of the blood from butchering meat.
And the Christians eat the Jesus crackers believing they are eating the (human) animal sacrifice. They drink what they believe is the blood of a (human) animal sacrifice.
They do this believing it helps absolve their wrongs. It may help alleviate guilt they have, thus they have little need to ask the person they transgressed for forgiveness.
It confuses the mind as to how to actually right a wrong.

Do you feel it is moral to take women and children as slaves as the spoils of war?
Can you debate the issue or are you just like most all the Christians who write on this thread? Divert all you wish, it only makes you look to have no actual argument.

I look forward to the day when a Christian joins this thread that can debate.

Polls taken that show the relation between parents and offspring that follow the parents religion are not of children. Children grow up and continue to follow the religion of the parents, 80% of the time.
Can you not understand how polls work? You seem to have such trouble following simple concepts.

<shrug> it's all just witch doctoring and abra kadabra with rituals to gussy it up. Illusionists use slight of hand, religion uses slight of mind.

I feel the Jesus portrayed in the bible is very much like the typical Christian hippie liberal today.
Now most liberal hippies today are into other mysticism, but that just shows the sort Jesus was, the guy who went for the new age thing, that was out of the norm. Heck, the conservatives had him killed for it.
Just watched a documentary called "the source family". It was a hippie cult thing back in the sixties. The family took many videos and pictures, so it was well documented. The remnants of the cult made the movie from what I could tell. It really gives good insight to the hippie cult culture of the era.
Jesus would have fit right in, or would have been the cult leader.
