"I may be coming across to strong"
Not at all, truth is tough, if someone supports the church(christianity) they support hate, the church supports hating gays, suppression of science, intolerance of those that do not believe, killing your own children if your god says it should be done. There are no innocent christians all are quilty of supporting hate, do the nice christians step up and condemn the bad ones for not allowing gays to live as they choose? No, because the church is against it. Do the nice christians stand up and say, stop, when their church leaders preach hate, NO they do not. If christianity is allowed to run this country do you think gays, theories and abortion clinics is where it will end. The church would demand your evil satanic ass be burned at the stake and the nice christians, well they would watch and pray that god's GRACE be done. Coming across to strong, Never.
That is the problem. You are filled with so much hate for ALL religious people, you can't see any good in any. Church leaders I have been around my entire life do NOT preach hate.

I'd rather die then to have a religion forced on me or my family were agonstic, and PROUD
I agree. Religion should not be "forced" on anyone. Religion must be something which is sought based on your own convictions and beliefs.

In a private, religious based school but not in a public school unless all of the world religions where offered.
AND, stupid, my comment about the ten commandments was not about law but how christians keep saying that the old jewish laws do not apply because they are under the new testament. As far as the law goes, murder, stealing, etc where against the law in countries that had not been forced to be christian yet!
Hey, how does it feel to have some one who is not a christian say that YOU are evil?
The reason I did not include rape is because your god promotes rape.

<quoted text>no i dont wish to have a discussion with a philosopher u think they didnt read the Bible pull a coin out of your pocket and read the inscription on it In God We Trust and when they mention the name of God in him u have the name of Jesus
The writers if the Constitution didn't even mention god at all. The addition of "in god we trust" came much later.

Adams, Franklin, Madison, etc, were Enlightenment-era thinkers. They had logic, ethics...philosophy on the brain a heck of a lot more than religion.

Just wondering you being a GenuineChristian, one never knows when it is hate or love you peeps are expressing, for instance when I say, blow me, I do not use it for an expression of love it is more like I am saying dumbass which makes people mad when they realize its true, any way just wondering what your veiws are on that tard vs dipstick stuff.
No!
Pretty much means "Dumb as a box of rocks"

You do not wish to admit its meaning because of your radically extreme bias.Thus we cannot have an intellectual conversation.
We have to dumb down our conversations with you. How sad.
Nagel is not a scientist, he is a philosopher. And science does not make claim ID cannot be true, it only claims it has zero evidence thus is not science and thus cannot be taught as known science.
One can simultaneously believe in evolution and ID.
Sorry this is all above your ability of comprehension. I am sure your response will be full of words like 'tard' and other schoolyard terms and ideas.

<quoted text> are you sure you do not have some bias against women? do you believe there is legitimate rape, and consensual rape? does a woman have to risk her life in order to have it called rape? would you like to be raped and forced to carry a child for 9 months and think of the rape experience all that time, and then be forced into a link with the rapist - who has parental rights in 31 states?
I know of several stories where the woman Not wanting to KILL a Baby because of rape, carried them to full term, and before giving them up for adoption, kept them, Loved them, and was VERY glad they didn't kill them!

Do you even know what those verses are talking about?

The problem, I think, is the Fundamentalists. They focus narrowly on a few interpretations or verses from the Bible and seem to hammer on those ideas far more intensely than anything else. Jesus talked a lot about being kind, being charitable, being humble. Yet most of what we hear from Fundamentalists is about gay bashing, evolution, capitalism, and small government. This is a set of ideas that is almost exclusively an American version of Christianity. And it's a Bible Belt/Right Wing American version at that.

It's like taking a rock song and running it through a filter until only the tambourine or one cymbal is left audible and the rest becomes muffled.

Why don't we hear Fundamentalists passionately pushing for more aid to the poor, the handicapped, the mentally ill? Why aren't they opposing war? Why do thy seem to be fixated with guns and gay bashing? Jesus had little or nothing to say about that stuff.

You and HF have the same issue, you think everyone is dem or rep, I am not, all politicians are a joke, do you really think any one of them care about you?

If so, Delusional comes to mind.

As I have said before hang them all and start again, I bet the next group will get along and get Their JOB done. Last time I remember them working together, was in getting a pay raise for Themselves.

But that was not the point of my post, I just ask about your meaning of dipstick compared to tard, thank you for your reply.

To even bring up an idiotic concept of 'legitimate rape' is the epitome of stupidity, and yes, it is that bad. I'm truly sorry that you don't get it.

Thank you for your reply. I Thank you and the other nice christians and non-hate filled church leaders, that you will assemble to protest and write letters condemning these christians for their hate speech.

"When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed."
Randall Terry, on abortion providers and women who had abortions

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."
Ann Coulter

Thank you for your support, I am looking forward to seeing in the news about your group of nice christians condemning these bad ones for their hate.

Once again Thank You for standing up for what's right.

Next you and your nice christian group can condemn westboro church.
The list is long.
This will be great nice christians doing what's right.

Good DAY.
