The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

That is nonsense. You can't tell me that someone who is a good person of high moral character who isn't Christian is "serving Satan."
Remember this: God's moral standard is perfection 24/7. Not only must the action be perfect but so must the attitude and desire. This is the standard and your "high moral character" standard is like comparing the surface of the sun with the dark side of moon.

Everything else is Satanism. Every religion is Satanism. Every atheist is a Satanist. Every agnostic is a Satanist. Every Buddhist is a Satanist. Every Hindu is a Satanist.
Every single person that doesn't believe that JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY INTO HEAVEN is a Satanist!
Quit following a condemned fallen angel, Satan......and come to Jesus Christ for the remission of sins!
Ohhhhhh...of course. Yours is right because EVERYTHING ELSE IS WRONG! Brilliant. You're truly a master debater.

What was the perfect action, attitude, and/or desire when God was allowing people to kidnap Israelite children and kill them? Wouldn't the more perfect action have been to protect those children from kidnap/murder? How many children would you knowingly and idly allow to be abducted and sacrificed before you actually did something to prevent it from happening?

Just making things up and/or copy pasting from anti-Christian trash sites mean nothing. And repeating the same nonsense over and over just proves your desperation.
Whatever hatred and anger you have against God and Christianity can be forgiven. Take it to the cross, ask Jesus for forgiveness........ask Him into your heart. He shed His blood for you too, for everyone.
Something happened in your life and you are angry with God about it. It makes no sense to lie and mock and try to twist the Word of God. You're not going to turn a REAL Christian away from the faith. We are securely in the hand of Jesus and no one is able to pluck us from there.
Liam, it's time to come to the cross. That knock on your heart is from Jesus.....will you answer the door?
Revelation 3:20- Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Most people don't think the bible IS the word of God. It was written by men inspired by their personal connection with what they considered their God or higher power. That's cool.
God speaks to me and directs me to write the things I do. By your definition, what I write is the word of God, yet I am condemned to the lake of fire and my father is Satan.
Your beliefs are not the only connection to the Almighty. There are many paths. You believe there is only one path. Look around and open your mind, heart, and soul to the possibilities that are all around and free.

All this shows how far short man falls from God's standard. If this is the only life they had, then its tragic.

In evolutionary theory these things happen. No big deal.

No, I believe what the bible teaches and that is that the earth is a sphere suspended in space.
How many times are going to repeat the same nonsense drivel?
"It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:" Isaiah 40:22

A circle is a flat shape. And the heavens are in no way like a tent or curtain, they are pretty much empty space.

And don't forget the story where Satan takes Jesus to the top of a mountain and shows him all of the kingdoms of earth. That would only be possible if the earth was flat.

Why do you insist on believing the buy-bull is all true? It clearly isn't.

I can understand the need to believe there is someone in charge, some heaven after this for people you like, and a hell for those you don't like, but why the need to believe things that can and have been proven to be untrue are true?

Jesus said there was only one way. Argue with Him.

Sup Lowell, there you go pointing out the yucky stuff. Fundies only like the nice stuff. Its best just to rub him behind his wittle ears and leave it alone. He wont believe you even if you show him the scriptures. Kinda like This.

And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.-- Numbers 31:15-18

or maybe this

Dang if god didnot feed 42 kids to a she bear

And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.-- 2 Kings 2:23-24

And then there's this statement, which could only be found in the Bible:

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.-- Psalm 137:9

Weep what? You are making a fool out of yourself yet again. You are copy/pasting from anti-Christian trash sites that are taking scripture out of context.
You can't think for yourself? Sadly, you're even plagiarizing the nonsense.
Doesn't matter if the sites are anti-Christian or not. Either the quotes are accurate, or they aren't.
BTW, I copy pasted my quotes from bibie.cc, a fundie site.

Lacking supporting evidence, I will dismiss your entire comment as delusional.
There is plenty of supporting evidence, indeed it is the reigning thesis amounf secular historians that explains the explosive growth of 1st through 3rd century Christianity.

But no, Im not going to provide citations and a bibliography..ypou simply need to be better read.

Wrong, I just stand firmly behind the Word of God. It makes me upset when people try to mock, lie about, or twist God's Holy Bible.
Yes, and many people do that in the attempt to deny basic human rights to other taxpaying Americans.

It's sad.
