<quoted text>Since I have stated many times that Satanism is a philosophy, not a being I do not feel that I have to repeat myself in every post. So no, not Satanic cherry picking and no irony for you.
If the pick stick fits dude :-).

Would you want to lump and labeled and stereotyped as what society portrays satanism to be (those who worship evil) if you were not?

Do you think that's even a near rational state of mind?

I don't. With out knowing specific individuals for who and what they are--I think is bigotry, derived of ignorance.

<quoted text>The Book of Mormon in no way replaces the Bible. It is just another record of people and their dealings with God and Jesus Christ. You should read it for yourself and decide what you think of it.
Think about this: if there were other books written about Jesus Christ and it invites you to worship Him why not read it?
WHY DO WE NEED "another" record!? What's WRONG with the MAIN one? Lol? Sorry honey ... Don't b deceived like these others. At least you acknowledge there is a higher power. Now let's just make sure you are worshipping the one and only.
I do read lots of other books. I have read some of the Book of Mormon. There is NO NEED for this book?!

Mans words, that they felt inspired to write.

Just like you and I are doing right now.

The rest IS called "free will" derived of peoples OWN choosing.

Or else we would live in a world of preprogrammed robot zombies, all the same, of no individual thought, preferences or individuality.

No thanks and pass on that crappolla!!

They are teenagers, from Georgia, apparently with out any ethics, decency or morality within them.

No matter the race, creed or color.

Personally, I think they should see life behind gray concrete walls, with no light of day, for the rest of their days on earth. They are obvioulsy UNfit to be allowed to walk freely amongst humanity.

Hey, if you do not like socialism do not drive down a road, do not call an ambulance or police or fire fighters. Do not send your children to public school PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!
I practice what I preach very well.
VERY WELL.

There's a BIG difference in supporting the infrastructures of this nation, and just giving handouts to those who do nothing to earn them, or contribute towards them.

Try not to confuse that REALITY.

Shakespeare was inspired to write Romeo and Juliet, does that make them real as well or do you make hypocritical exceptions for what you want to believe?

Satanic priest getting ridiculed on own worshipping site lol by other atheists. That's got to be disheartening!
God doesn't laugh at us. He laughs with us. He cares about what we care about. What about people you "worship" with? Do they care? It sure doesn't seem so..

and by YOUR ILLogic on this-

Society would be more presuppositioned to call such evil acts-"satanisTic".

Barbaric, without morality, ethics or decency.

Such evilness in the world today.

Wow satan really has this one DECEIVED. sad. Praying for you heart and mind to be clear
The Bible is a book, written by men, inspired to do so.

How much clearer can it get than that?

It's how people CHOOSE of their own free will, to read such.

I personally choose NOT to hate it, or to "use" it as some sort of lethal weapon AGAINST people, just to suit myself.

I don't think that's how it is meant for us to learn from it.

But then again, I like books, and am grateful that we live in a nation where reading for ones OWN self, is NOT prohibited, as is in comunisTic or dark age countries.

God wasn't for HANDOUTS..

And George Washington didn't really cut down a cherry tree.

Your point is?

You live in a nation that let's you believe what you wish to, but so does the REST of the nation.

And they are just as entitled to believe whatever, as you are not to.

So who's the hypocrite?

You either believe in the RIGHTS of people to believe as they wish, or you do not.

Which is it.

There are just some things, even when edited jus ever so slightly, that can STILL inspire beautifully, to anyone that may read them...

Grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it.....

Hmm?

I don't believe in a God that just laughs at people either.

That's just pretty damn lame..and stupid.

Kinda like laughing at black mold.

Some chit's just not funny-and really can make people sick.

No ax grinding, I want to see our species improve and that's not what AA is about. Read the 12 steps instead of just jumping to the defense of something that "sound good." Lots of things "sound good" until you actually look at them a bit closer.
Also, no they don't, they get paid by medical insurance and state taxes, always.
Eugenicists wanted to see our species "improve." What are you proposing - that cirrhosis of the liver and crack cocaine overdoses are natural selection? Why not euthanize people who are near-sighted, diabetic or "too short?"

I cannot with conscience contest the fabrications of Bible thumpers and give atheists and agnostics a free pass. I've known people who were killed by drunk drivers, failed organs, overdose, IV acquired diseases, by drug related violence.... As much as I think that the Bible is a fairy tale, I'll not pass by a Salvation Army bell ringer or Girl Scout cookie table to stand on a "principle" of radical intolerance.
I don't care if YaA got clean from a ministry, from willpower or thru a self help group - I applaud him for it. Even if AA has a lower success rate than some fancy Beverly Hills clinic (and the Hollywood crowd seems to debunk that) the fact that it has been around a long time and has spawned so many imitators indicates that it has helped more alcoholics than churches and hospitals have.

At your urging, I looked at the 12 steps. They mention "power greater than ourselves" - which could be anything, and "God as we understood him" - which could be anything. I don't find any references to Jesus, Allah, Jehovah, Shiva, etc. Apparently, whoever wrote the literature might have been a similar brand of deist as the founding fathers.
Then wikipedia lists what they call the 12 traditions and it looks like #6 and #7 kinda puts a kink in your claims of AA taking tax and insurance money.
You'd mentioned N.A. and I found this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcotics_Anonym...
During a time that the Repukes propose diverting even more money from community resources in favor of building more prisons for corporations to get fat off of, I think I'll "jump to the defense of something" that sounds even better when you look at it closer. Whether it's a 12 step program, a soup kitchen or assistance for the elderly - I don't criticize good works and throw out the baby with the bathwater just because somebody says "God" or wears a cross, Star of David or pentacle on a necklace.

I have no beliefs, and I certainly do not share the same delusion you display. If someone claimed that Spiderman was real, would you not want them to receive professional help?

"Literally" derived of ignorance, or based on more rational reasoning that the corners of the earth could've just included maybe 100 square miles?
The known lands were far more extensive than 10 miles by 10 miles 4500 years ago. There is firm evidence that there was regular trade across at least 3 continents - so "every living thing on the face of the Earth" was not Noah County.
Why do y'all continually try to rationalize something that clearly did not happen is a historical fact?

Where did I ever call addiction "natural selection?"

Also, you are suggesting allowing them to force people to trade one bad addiction for another, that's not very caring. There are other programs available, and again, they present a lower cost with better results than anything based on the "12 step, you are useless and only some god can do anything" junk. You are not supporting positive change at all, I do.

Want to know something, out of more than a hundred people with major addictions that I have known, the few who stop have only one method that has worked, only one ... they simply chose to stop.
