here the problem with people about prayer in schools any public place or school ,is not for prayer unless its a church. but if you have read you bible you would know that god hears you where ever you are .you don't have to make any kind of sound from the mouth to be heard ,god said i know the thoughts of your heart before you speak.a prayer in your mind is as good as out loud.god knows so any kid can say a prayer in school as many times as they please.as well as any public place .and not even disturb the person next to them.that the way it always has been with god.they a time and place for all things said god.to shout to god in voice they a place called church.and if god lives with you in your soul you have him 24 7 ,he made a promise to his children i will never for sake you.he will keep his promises if you one his children .notice all gods promises has a condition that comes with them.fulfill the condition you get the promise. don't then you wont. real simple.

Probably more like loving the verse for it being a great example of the craziness of the bible.
Your right Mike, that was the idea behind what I quoted. I knew the CINOs would jump on that and would twist it into a straw man argument about the quote as Curious and Yaa has often done in the past and ..still want that craziness taught to indoctrinate kids in public schools. I think the link I provided supported with study that show that many Christians have and addiction to porn and are upset when that verse and others are presented to show as you stated could not be words of a moral god.

Maybe that is why the Secret Gospels of Mark was never authenticated, they want to hide the hypocrisy they live by in secret also.

The people who wrote this stuff and lived off of and profited from religion owned slaves, obviously, so of course it was "God's Will"

A truly loving and caring god would have ordered his followers not to keep slaves.
Seems to me that your god isn't as caring as you make him out to be.

Religion is a substitute for true morality and a vehicle for manipulating the ignorant

<quoted text>And the Christians eat the Jesus crackers believing they are eating the (human) animal sacrifice. They drink what they believe is the blood of a (human) animal sacrifice.
They do this believing it helps absolve their wrongs. It may help alleviate guilt they have, thus they have little need to ask the person they transgressed for forgiveness.
It confuses the mind as to how to actually right a wrong.

I have always been amused by this tenet of Catholicism: Murder someone, you're still a Catholic. Get a divorce, or marry outside the faith to someone who won't raise the kids Catholic and you're ex-communicated.

Therefore divorce and giving birth to non Catholic brainwashed kids are worse than murder

If your Mother was Jewish, that means you are Jewish, too. That's funny as well

Did you ever notice....
In Islam... if you are born of a Muslim... you are counted as a Muslim
whether you want to be or not!
In Christianity... you can choose whatever you want.... notice the Atheists today!
Notice also... the indoctrination of children (by our Government) into
accepting Homosexuality as being normal...
Better not ask if a vagina was made for a penis... goes against immorality!

I've always loved this verse. The whole chapter, really, is one big graphic description of what a whore this woman is and all the people she's banged.
Ezekiel 23:19,20:
"Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."
Sounds like a stage show I once saw in Juarez, Mexico.....

Very interesting, you never explained it that way till Mike put the words in your mouth.

What you said was" You love those verses"

Perhaps you should be careful.

Mike recently wrote that he was raised a Catholic. Now he is an Atheist.

However,he attends Mass with his father when the fancy or desire strikes him.

To his father, Mass must mean a solemn event .

Yet,Mike does not hesitate to mock and ridicule that which his father believes is Holy,

Why is he attending church with his father and then mock and ridicule him?

Pusillanious mind?

I did not say I love donkey genitals and horse emissions. Another one of "The Mantle of God" straw man lies, Maynard.
The bible is full of whore stories and man whores in the bible. I know you like reading about them, How many times have you read this verse over and over, maybe 50 plus times and know so much about it? I wonder about your mental state.
I'm not accusing you of anything unlike yourself that has falsely done to me , but please wash your hands when your done flipping through those naughty sacred bible passages, somebody else may want to read it also while sitting on the privy.
LOL, holy, holy, holy.
Learn to understand what you read before you form a misinformed opinion.

The verses contaiend in Ezekiel are an analogy. He is not talking about 2 women,he is talking about Samaria and Jerusalem


If you were able to read and comprehend whet you read, you would not have posted such an erroneous opinion.

Anyone with a smidgen of reading comprehension would have no problems understanding the point being made.

On the other hand, a perverted mind or someone who is brain dead would not be able to differentiate.

It is what it is.

However, you have managed to get 2 on your side, Mike, who is highly suspect and Quantumist , who travelled to Juarez Mexico in order to satisfy his sexual desires.

Apparently ,while in Juarez , he watched or participated in some show that reminds him of donkey genitals and horse emissions.

Then , you claimed to see the same show . That is what I understood from what you 3 have posted

"Learn to understand what you read before you form a misinformed opinion."

I most certainly did not travel to Juarez Mexico to satisfy my sexual desires... Traveled there drink way to much Tequila with other soldiers from my unit since the age limit was 21 in Texas at the time and to get burritos from street cart vendors made of mystery meat but are delicious and take in the local culture.... Just happened that part of the local culture happened to be donkey F'in....

The bible verses, not as much as Christians do. I was making fun of those verses. You would like those verses read by children, I don't. That is a big difference between you and I. Introduction to bibles salacious words 101 in public schools. Place the bible on the same shelf as other religions books and next to mythology. So you think Mike has a pusillanimous mind.

Mike, Q, and myself have been in the military some of us tested in war and face the enemy soldiers in battle and sustained injuries for a lifetime. Honorable discharges. What have you done to prove your courage. maynard?

You forgot to mention the essence of other believers truths which have absolutely nothing to do with blood and Jesus.

Take the truths of the Australian Aborigines and their Dreamtime Snake.

There's no blood or Jesus to be seen but those aboriginal truths are just as relevant as yours.

Now most liberal hippies today are into other mysticism, but that just shows the sort Jesus was, the guy who went for the new age thing, that was out of the norm. Heck, the conservatives had him killed for it.
Just watched a documentary called "the source family". It was a hippie cult thing back in the sixties. The family took many videos and pictures, so it was well documented. The remnants of the cult made the movie from what I could tell. It really gives good insight to the hippie cult culture of the era.
Jesus would have fit right in, or would have been the cult leader.
Actually, it was the liberal wealth redistributionists (today's democrats) who had Jesus killed - they were living lavishly by taxing the hell out of the commoners.

And Jesus would not fit the liberal hippy mold - he never climbed up on the hood of police cars and took a shit.

The Sanhedrin had as much in common with Democrats as you do, Buck.
Most fundamentalists lie for Jesus. Which savior do you lie for - Limbaugh or McGruff?

I didn't see the documentary, but I think you're selling the guy way short by comparing him to the stereotypical 60's hippies. He did emphasize "love thy neighbor" but that doesn't literally translate to "peace love dope." The "typical Christian hippie liberals of today" don't really strike me as the anti-establishment activist type. Saving urban wetlands and running homeless shelters, maybe...

Sorry, but I do not see any reason to believe the Jesus was any better than many hippies of the sixties.
The documentary shows how it is easy to obtain a following. The source cult believed the leader was a god. Although it was apparent to me he was no god, it sure seemed relatively easy to trick many to think otherwise.

So your argument is, belief is evidence? Any and all religions can transform ones attitude. By your reasoning, all religions have the same evidence you just claimed.

Ideas change people, not ghosts.
