I beeline that bible study should be aloud. If they aren't bothering anyone then I don't see a problem. Most bible study groups, like ours, it's held after school. Not during.

Well that's nice but I really would suggest you would do much better attending English class with a remedial spelling class tossed in as that will serve you better after graduation when you have to fill out the paper work......

<quoted text>These are all just killings because god makes the rules. Now close that mind up and just obey the rules god made. If his holy ghost tells you to kill, then it is a just killing. No need to think about it with that brain of yours. Just do it. If your religious leader tells you the god spoke to him on a mountain and then tells you to kill your kids for having a graven image, just do it.
And lets have a book put in public schools that teach this lesson.
Vlad the impaler was a christian. He was cruel and a murderer like Yahweh is in the bible. If you fart when bowing down to Yahweh then you will have a sword shoved up your kazoo and fed to starving dogs.

Police arrested a woman Friday after her 7-year-old son told authorities she burned him in an oven.

Teaching her son what hell going to be like if you don't accept Jesus. I bet she was clasping that shiny cross are her neck during the torture, so christian of her.

Well it is bothering someone. It bothers those who care about the constitution.
I think you mean "allowed", but I guess you were more focused on bible study than English study.

It is no longer a question of how or why Republicans are imposing corporatism and theocratic laws on the American people, but when they will finally transform this once democratic nation into a fascist state under authority of plutocrats and theocrats.

The bad news is that America is one election away from total dominance by the Koch brothers billionaire club and religious extremists on the verge of replacing the Constitution with the bible and Milton Freidman’s manifesto “Capitalism and Freedom.”

What makes one heretical teaching worse than others? Can you list which religious organizations that have heretical teachings other than Catholics?
All that don't preach "Grace alone, Faith alone, in Christ alone"!
Grace is a Gift from God, and any that says you "have" to work to get it, is heretical!
ie. you do your best, and Jesus does the rest....
Jesus did it ALL on the Cross!

Dude, your boogie man story does not scare me. It is a hoax.
When Muslims say you must believe Mohammed or else you go to hell,does this scare you? Take this outsiders test.
You forget.... again...
I WAS the outsider....
Then I was saved!
You are deceived by satan... God is real!
You can either be His friend, or enemy...

Again you err . one of your heroes SP confessed to having used multiple monikers on the harlan forum.
There has been a pattern to the postings on this thread that certainly points to someone changing monikers within minutes of posting among other evidence that I have provided.
What can be considered a lie was your assertion that I had stated that the finding of my dog was a miracle . I never made that claim and you nevedr provided evidence to support that claim.
Needless to say , I addressed it once or maybe twice and then dismissed it for what it was NON SENSE.
You guys are the ones that won't let go of the moniker issue.
You keep beating a dead horse even after I have declared it dead.
Anyhow , I get the distinct impression that Witchinthewoods assetion that"We are here to annoy " is accurate and to the point.
If I may add ...Possibly you are also here to agitate and create dissension and unrest.
You never see me post hatred of the Bible and Christians the way that SP did, but then I've never had anyone threaten to pour gasoline on my wife and light her on fire, either. He was banned months ago and there simply is no logical evidence or logically derived deduction that any registered user is playing multiple moniker mayhem.
You introduced the dog story to indicate that God manifested a sign when you were distraught and seeking. Definitively, that qualifies as "a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency." My best guess is that you probably took too long writing it on the first try and the window timed out - but you jumped and ranted and blamed some other poster for deleting it. You've been pointing and shaking fingers almost from day one of your participation.
I have stated and I maintain that I started posting here in opposition to indoctrination of children to (a) theology via the public schools. When the dialog degenerates beyond (or below) dissension, it takes two to tango, Bonzo. Don't complain about some litter on my sidewalk when the chances are better than even that it blew there from your side of the street.

Not so sure you were ever really an outsider. Did you ever actually not believe in a god?
Looking at your story, I think you were just a Christian who did not follow the rules of the dictator you believe exists.
You simply realized through experience that bad behavior is not conducive to happiness. No god lead you to this conclusion.

Now what does your experience teach you about being afraid of Mohammed's word?

In other words, you refuse to answer the question.

Nope. In other words he refuses to question. Period. That would involve facts and evidence, critical thinking, logic, objectivity - and who knows what >other< heretical sins THOSE might lead to?

Boehner should have figured out years ago that there is a distinct difference between "for right thing" and "far right wing", but we know he's not the sharpest tack in the pack.(and to the neocons, no - I'm not saying that his counterparts have shown a whole lot to brag about, either.)

He's cracking under the pressure?

The daughter of House Speaker John Boehner has tied the knot with her Jamaican-born love in an intimate sunset ceremony set amid a lush Florida garden.

I agree that you are not chickenshit as you belong to that branch of the Mensa organization known as Excrement Craniums.
Let me repeat;
The Atheists that post on this thread have made it abundantly clear they
\a) Do not believe there is a God
b) That the Bible is composed of fables invented by Goatherders
c) That the Exodus never occured , that Moses is a mythical figure
Given that those are the tenets of your faith , then it is a farce and totally illogical to then claim that God , whom you do not believe exists is guilty of ordering or committing murder.
If Moses did not exist , then he is not a tyrant ,nor did he murder anyone.,as you erroneously claim , based on your misinterpretation of scripture.
Your problem seems to emanate from the relationship you had with your parents , specifically , your father.
Many renowned Atheists seem to have been afflicted by that problem.
You may want to read the articles written by Psychologist Paul C. Vitz , himself a former Atheist.
You believe it was a moral story, billions like yourself do. This is a problem in our society. Run from the debate in order to keep in denial, chicken shit. You have no curiosity for other ideas.
