I like it when a minority of them call a majority of Christians.. not Christian ( chuckle ). Each one seems to have personal knowledge of how everything is supposed to be, and anyone that disagrees with them... is not "right with their particular god". Funny part is, they all seem to KNOW what their God is thinking, and it doesnt seem to be the same god.<quoted text>
what i don't understand is how any one church or faith thinks they get to dictate to others how to practice someone's faith, or how to believe. case in point is a discussion i was involved in the oklahoma city topix thread about gay marriage with one fellow named antitheist who couldn't accept there were other denominations or faiths that believed differently than his chosen denomination he followed (which he finally confessed being a southern baptist). just where do they get the justification, the downright smugness, in thinking they get to dictate what or who a christian is in the first place? they don't own the word "christian" any more than i do. yet he really believes he's the one that says who is and who isn't a christian and how anyone and everyone gets to believe.
nevermind the fact that this country isn't a theocracy. that just seems to dumbfound many that think that their closely held religious beliefs should be made into public secular laws. everytime i read things like that, i just have to shake my head in disbelief.
I have pointed out the thousands of Christian churches that want to preform Same sex marriages, where is the demand for their religious freedom?
No.. it is all ignorant bias, they pick and choose the church that will tell them what they want to hear. Just like they pick a news station that will report what they want to hear, and then they close their eyes to actual knowledge and pick the "facts" they want to believe regardless of reality.
I dont actually hate these people, but I certainly feel sorry for them. But I will not let them dictate to other Americans.
