Do you try at all to comply with the teachings and/or wishes of your god?<quoted text>
HughBe--- "He does not exist" and YET you are "quite sure he would not approve" of my comment.
This is about you, not me or my beliefs.
Why do you evade your poor religioua practice?
Sounds like hypocisy to me.
You have a long pattern of not standing by your own words.
Don't be a coward. Be a man.
Yet you continure to rationalize your own bad behavior.<quoted text>
Former--But I assume that he does for you.
HughBe--- So I should be sure and not you.
In the way that a child knows what will please or displease Santa Claus.<quoted text>
Former--And we all know of the teachings; the Beatitudes; the Golden Rule.
HughBe-- WE know of the teachings of a fictitious person. Interesting
"He knows if you've been bad or good...."
Yet you continue to fail this simple test, miserably.<quoted text>
HughBe--- I too am KIND and understanding and I do turn the other cheek BUT not always.
Former--It is when you are truly challenged (and even outraged) that the appropriate response matters.
By your own beliefs, you've clearly shown your ability to use your imagination. Don't let that ability fail you now in your hour of need.<quoted text>
Former--Anyone can be Christ-like in fair weather.
HughBe-- Tell me what would constitute being Christ-like if there is no Christ.
Yet you continue to deny this clear demographic divide in terms of churches.<quoted text>
Former--Wealthy people live with wealthy people and poor people live with poor people.
HughBe--- Brilliant observation.
Only to ignore it. And self-deception by omission.<quoted text>
Former--Your faux indignation cannot undo this simple truth.
HughBe--- I have not sought to undo a self-evident TRUTH.
Open your mind.<quoted text>
Former--You have much to learn my child.Stay the course.
HughBe--Well papa you have stopped learning, what a pity.
Allow truth and knowledge to wash over you.
I promise it won't hurt a bit.
