The Atheists who post on topix have been sneering at Christianity looooong before I came on board,,, That is a LAME excuse.
If you are intimidated by the word Bang , then you have mental problems for which I do not have a cure.
I do believe that Du What gave a proper response to the Atheist's problem.
You guys expect to demean and ridicule our beliefs at your pleasure and not expect an in kind reply.
Then , when you get one , you get all bent out of shape.
"You are a Christian. You are supposed to turn the other cheek "
Therefore , you feel you have free license to demean withouit any repercussions.
I do not believe Christ wanted us to be floor mats for Atheists or anyone else.
To put it bluntly . I may permit you to slap me and turn the other cheek , up until you reach the conclusion that you are being a bully and abusive and discontinue your abuse.
If I determine that you will continue to bully and abuse me at your leisure , there will come a time when I will punch you in the mouth and kick you where the sun don't shine.
For the time being , I still like you.
But don't push it. I do not have the patience of Job... LOL
In an aside; I thought you posted that I should be ignored .
I do not bully those who are disadvantaged, I "bully" those who persist in willfully dishonest and wantonly ignorant statements.-If you consider correcting your misadventures into logic, being critical of hypocrisy and pointing out falsifications as "abuse", the I again question your ability to recognize reality. Not that you've proven adept at recognizing it. With that in mind, maybe I >should< treat you with kid gloves. Bless you my child, have a cookie.

You offer an aside? Is that your special contraction for asinine and snide? To be direct, I thought you posted that you'd be leaving Topix soon - and reasonable people will be sneering at your Kooky Kool-aid Korps long afterward.
Oh, and lest we forget - Mind your ninth commandment.

It's not helping you to think any better.
Trust me, I can tell from your posts.
No , I have a hard head. What does hurt is reading the malignant nonsense posted by maladjusted atheist minds.
Keep an eye out for Lodi and his earplugs.
His brain is mush and if the earplugs dislodge his brains will ooze out his ears.

Shall we review the define of hypocrite again?
By your own admission "My Jesus" you believe; and in doing so must adhere to his instructions that he has laid out for you to follow!
You have Failed!
Now what you have accomplished is proving your hypocrisy......(the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion)
In order for you to understand this...you must first understand the meaning of hypocrite, and I really don't think you do.
Sounds like a personal problem-of your own.

I do believe there was once a being that existed, known in the Bible, as Jesus, in basic human form.

Just like Solomon, David, and a lot of others through out history.

And that definition was:

1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion.

No "assumption" to it...except on your part.

Is there something you do not like about The Golden Rule?

It's a fairly simple rule to try and live by.

I am sure most of us atheists here do not talk about religion in mixed company the way we do here. Keep in mind, this is a forum that is supposed to be more open to free expression in an attempt to exchange views in a way that is normally not something we could do in person due to the social norms of respect.
You guys seem to forget this fact.
"that is normally not something we could do in person due to the social norms of respect.

I am SO glad you (SOMEONE finally) pointed THOSE two VERY true statements out.

Thank you.

According to the third commandment? "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain?"
I always felt that meant not to profess that you align yourself with God as your lord, but then act like a complete @SS.
Seems like taking it to mean "Thou shalt not cuss" is a cheap and easy cheat - as I've come to expect from the contingent across the aisle.
Brilliant, Agree and Bingo for you too lol.

You might believe in the golden rule, but looking at your vile posts, it is clear you do not follow the golden rule. Normal for hypocrites.
I try, but let's see..hmm..my longtime excuse IS... I went to school with herd pack animals, and lived near ship yards, so you know ow that goes lol.

Aside from that, I realize realistically, e-v-e-r-y-day, that we're all only human.(as in NOT perfect!)

<quoted text>So you are to poor to buy toothpaste? At least it is an excuse for those brown teeth.
The economy has been rising fairly steady now for several years since Bush had his extreme downward spiral of an economy.
Now you can complain about it, and try to spin it as if Obama put us in a bad economy, but it is just a denial of facts.
Okayyy...maybe this one won't fly so far over your balding..head...

Let's look at the "employment" numbers. NOT the UNemployment numbers...but the amount of people employed. And then let's look at the increase in the amounts having to turn to social welfare programs.

Let us know what data you gather.

<quoted text>I think some are just not allowing some information to be looked at logically. So it is more of a denial issue than a lack of logic issue. Note how Du what keeps avoiding the meat of most issues. He sticks to the surface where the denial is safe. Once you pry deep into the issue, he runs and claims we are persecuting him.
This is Sista's excuse also.
YaA just runs and starts ranting about something else or starts quoting his preacher.
That wasn't your point, it was my point.

Will you puhLease stop trying to claim My points as well?

I would assume if you believe Jesus is god, then you would follow his advice. I suppose I should not assume this.
That was pretty good-can't fuss about any of it.

Let me not waste my time commenting on all the nonsense you posted.
Anyhow , thanks for the blessing and the cookie,,,,,,You forgot the glass of milk.
As an aside,,, Yes , I will be leaving topix soon... as soon as I get around to it. And at the time of my choosing and convenience.
And , if I leave , I may well choose to return,,at my leisure.
Gee whiz , I didn't know Atheists were so thinskinned. The thickheaded I knew about.

<quoted text>Why? Many (if not most) of those millions of people convey the EXACT same sentiments all of the time. Do you equate the same level of offense to "Atheists are fools", "so and so/such and such is an abomination to God" and "God is love"? I do - because all three are deliberate utter and complete lies. In the real world God and damn are just two words one in front of the other. You don't have the power to make your god bless or damn anyone or anything "he doesn't want to."
So Gol dangit, then. Grow up - or is that phrase offensive, too?
You don't get to make the rules of what offends people and what does not either. Say that phrase to the next cop that pulls you over. See if he agrees with you or me

And yes, I would find those things offensive as well. This is why don't say those words to atheists. It's called respect

Your deepest beliefs led you to the decision to join that church. What else does anyone need to know about intelligence and arrogance?
Just sayin'
This is your opinion. You are welcome to it. Doesn't mean you are right. It just means you are intolerant just like you accuse others of being.

<quoted text>Well I guess you can believe Jesus lets you be all sorts of things, as the Jesus never was very specific about anything.
So just how do you interpret this passage?
"You have heard that it was said,'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, don't resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and don't turn away him who desires to borrow from you.
Matthew 5:38-42
Okay, I personally would acknowledge--and give extra thought to-

39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil:....

perhaps a tad bit more than others might??

Then..
<insert the rest of your quoted passages here>

..which follows into the last line of the chapter, which is..

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Summarized of my own opinion (which you certainly do not have to agree with)however..
It might well be one of the earliest written examples of applying "common sense"?

I am pretty sure the Christians being caught in homosexual acts are not "using" Christianity as a defense.
I see no comparisons in your post. It is basically gibberish.

Why would they--it's no more of a "defense" than using atheism as one.

Sista says
Well, that's a little different , in some ways...in some ways not. Ho'ing is ho'ing and drug using is drug using. When the "labels of affiliation" are stripped anyway, it's all the same then, absolutely no difference whatsoever, and trying to use "atheism" to justify any of it (including the condemnation of others for such) would be no different either.
And Duquette when stumped...falls to the usual malodorous measures of spewing nothing but mouth (via keyboard) farts.

You were replying to MD when posting this, calling him a bully and a hypocrite, wrong on both accounts.
<quoted text>
I replied with the above post to convey to you that you were wrong. How can one be a hypocrite when they are not following that religion?
Do you understand this comment....Going to Church doesn't make you a Christian no more than me walking in my garage makes me a car?
... In a sense, it means, there is more to this religion than just SAYING you are a Christian, you must live it daily by following the bible, the commandments, and the teachings of your God.
Going to Church doesn't make you a Christian no more than me walking in my garage makes me a car?

OLD... I actually posted that one myself (except I would place the word ANY in front of more, rather then "no"-as in "Any more than"...) PAGES AND PAGES AND PAGES ago.

But anyway-
Once again, I'm a Non-denominational Independent with my OWN thoughts, ideals and beliefs, with my OWN perspectives on the Bible and ideals on how apply them daily in my life.
And all that works just fine for me.
