Again - Christ tried to teach unconditional love. Which "unconditional" religion does this?

You're accepted AS LONG AS you get married by a priest.

You're accepted AS LONG AS you're not homosexual.

You're accepted AS LONG AS you're a woman who does NOT speak out regarding church matters.

You're accepted AS LONG AS every act of sex with your spouse is primarily to procreate.

You're accepted AS LONG AS you don't associate with anyone who is a gay rights advocate.

You're accepted AS LONG AS you believe there is only "one, true religion" for the entire universe and any intelligent life said universe may contain.

You're accepted AS LONG AS you never use birth control, even if you can't afford to have one more child.

The list could go on and on...do these religious laws sound anything like unconditional love? THESE RULES ARE HIGHLY CONDITIONAL - the opposite of what Christ tried so hard to teach everyone. Go ahead and give all the negative icons you want - the things I've listed are all TRUE.

A religion I would want to belong to would be one which wouldn't constantly condemn people for every damn little thing. As soon as you hear "AS LONG AS" or equivalent, you know it's mercilessly conditional!

Sounds like arrogant, snobbish religion to me.
