Who cares about one spiritual orientation. Thank you President Obama for supporting religious freedoms. I love you.

Pretty dumb question isn't it.

Believe me. I have no questions about my choice to believe God reached out to mankind. I just wanted to show Flaming O how dumb the question is.
Oh my gosh, it just dawned on me that she was possibly cruising looking for some action. Oh man, duh. Guess I'm getting old.

be assured, I have absolutely no phobias what so ever concerning homosexuals. I may have one concerning menopausal cougars though but that is a fleeting mystery.
I do feel bad for the issues you obviously have though. My oldest and best friend struggles with her lesbianism. I know a young boy who is filled with shame concerning his sexual confusion. Believe me, I have my own bucket of shame. That is why I wear out the binding of my bible. I have learned that, if I chose to wear a blue shirt and a striped tie every day of my life, someone would stereotype me and pour out their hate on me. It's unavoidable.

and yes, there was this one day .......... a gang of us where hanging out on a friends porch and this german shepard mounted a tiny little brown dachshund dog. Man, even the little kids stopped what they were doing and pointed. First the girl dog was howling, then evidently the little dog got spoked and the shepard started howling and bam, the dachshund clamped up on the big german and took off runnin'. Dang, you should have seen it. A little hot dog runnin' down the street with a german shepard running backwards behind her howling like ........ heck, howling like a dog with his pecker caught in a mouse trap. We where rollin' on the ground it was so funny ;-D

Where was I when the Spartans were smashing babies' head or leaving them to starve? If man was created in the image of Me than why are you so violent? That's pretty sadistic man!

Why is it always My will that something happens? I couldn't really care one way or another! Not everything has to do with Me!

Bull Shiite! The teachings of Jesus, the philosopher, is worth studying and emulating. "Love your neighbor as you love yourself" is worth taking to heart. Jesus, as the son of God, as a metaphor, is understandable. Literally, it makes no sense at all.

To have someone treat you like you treat them is a good way to live unless you treat them badly. Might say something about yourself if you don't agree.

The Golden Rule, predating Christianity by about 4,000 years, existed among all the major philosophical schools of Ancient China: Mohism, Taoism, and Confucianism.

An early example of the Golden Rule that reflects the Ancient Egyptian concept of Maat appears in the story of The Eloquent Peasant, which dates to the Middle Kingdom (c. 20401650 BCE): "Now this is the command: Do to the doer to cause that he do thus to you."

To answer your question, you could have had about the same results, if churches were involved.

You talk about wisdom but despite your believing or not believing, the church was never supposed to be predominantly about wisdom. Solomon proved that by his life. Written to be the wisest man in the world but ended his life preaching meaninglessness. The church was always to herald the coming of Emanuel. The prophesied Messiah had stepped foot on earth. He said, If you don't believe my words, believe my miracles. This is far more difficult to believe than wisdom spoken in the wind. The person with no reason to live can have all the wisdom in the world spouted, to no avail. Like Paul said, you can have all the wisdom in the world and have not love and you are like a tinkling cymbal or a sounding brass. You'd be heartless baby, heartless.

I use to worry about folks that don't get it, but then I found out hell was not going to be empty.

Well you definitely will be going there to be set ablaze by Satan with all the malice and hatred in your heart towards Obama as you constantly violate James 4:11-12 & Romans 14:1 as well as other New Testament teachings.

Jesus didn't come to tell anyone they were going to hell. He came to live a life so that we could see that life and know that none of us were living a life anything like that life. And in seeing we would know that we had become lost concerning God's desired life for us. Jesus was never about judgement, He was about clarity. Instead of telling us how to live, like the religious leaders, He showed us how to live and also offered to heal the wounds, sicknesses and wipe away all sins acquired from that lost life. Having showed us that His relationship with our Father, being God who is spirit, was the key. His death and resurrection opening the way to the Father. That is why Jesus calls Himself the 'Door' and the 'Gate' and the 'Way'.
Jesus never expected anyone in this Forum to act any differently then they are. He came with love and mercy because He knows that any person running around ranting and raging is hurt and simply put, losing it. Coming unglued. He never came to judge a person who is coming unglued. He came to save them from their misery.

Referring to the title of this thread:

Believing in anything without critical evaluation is wrong.

Fortunately for me, I'm not believing in a thing. And if it was a thing it would be a hoped thing. And that thing would be a thought. And that thought would be, that love conveyed would not alter according to my foolish actions. That some love bigger than myself and outside of myself would be the cause not the effect. Every earthly supposed love became morphed as a result of my action. Having always hoped that love would stay and not always leave. That somewhere it was more of a constant.
By my good fortune having stumbled across a bible and it's writings about Jesus of Nazareth, I have learned that God Himself offers what I have for so long desired so constantly.
So, you see Gorky, I am not believing in a thing.
Also, I have tirelessly pursued a multifaceted, diverse source of understanding and am convinced without a doubt that Jesus was and is the promised Messiah.
