Now I have given a clear, intelligent answer to an idiotic question. You could reciprocate by trying to bring your discourse up a level or two (or three).
Oh yeah.This is a super-intelligent reply.Makes me wonder what caliber of genius I'm dealing with here.

I won't stab you in the back. I never have.
But I will tell you to repent so you do not go to a terrible eternity. As long as you are here I will tell you that.

Duty demands it.
Love demands it.
Christ commands it.

<quoted text>No, you misjudge me. I would not.
I was surprised once to learn how many Roman Catholic priests quietly believe in Protestant teachings. Surprisingly, very few of them believe in transubstantiation - the claim that they have the magical powers to turn wafer cookies into Jesus. Upon learning this, surprising me became more difficult.
But WHAT really makes peoples' worlds go round?(Tell the truth.)
Holding a contrary belief system, but doing so quietly to keep that paycheck coming, is not a novelty. This article is a very good example of that.
Upon being questioned, this associate pastor admitted to the church board that he agreed with what his wife wrote. In so doing, he admitted to being disingenuous with them about what he believed.
Isn't that the issue here?
For someone in East TN, you sure write like you know the facts better than anyone. Hmm, how could that be unless you were there when things were said and done? If you weren't there when things transpired then you don't know what actually happened, or was said, do you?

I guess you haven't noticed that this story has gone viral. It's in the newspapers in Chicago, Tulsa, and down in Florida. Read everything online about it and you'll know as much as anyone.

When you read Matthew 7:1, please read all the way down through verse 6.
Having the full context, you will see that Jesus did not say never to judge. He said not to be hypocritical in my judgement.
The out-of-context "judge not" of Matthew 7:1 is the favorite Bible verse of the unbeliever.
Yes, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation. Without Him, you suffer forever. So you need to hide yourself in Him.

From up here in the northland, this tempest in a teacup appears really ridiculous. Ms. Thomas's column was right on target: Shiite Christians! Muslims behave in exactly this fashion, and Christians condemn them for it. How anyone can view the kinds of discrimination gays have experienced for so long as anything but a denial of human rights and an attempt to torture them out of our society - well, I'm glad my mind isn't that narrow. Another consideration is very simple: A large majority of Christians cannot tolerate even the mildest of questions or of any comments that appear to contradict the BELIEFS they have accepted from authority figures in the pulpits of fundamentalist churches. The entire weight of the planet's best data and analysis cannot dent the prejudice of such people in matters such as gay rights, climate change, and evolution. Come on! Those folks are a bizarre reflection upon the worst aspects of humanity. Ms Thomas simply made a few comments that are correct. For those who wonder: I'm an atheist, and I find your argument ridiculous. You're arguing within a small box. As soon as you consider the whole of human experience, your small set of BELIEFS just seem stupid.

The beliefs you refer to come from the inspired scriptures - not from the people in the pulpits. If they teach anything not in the Bible, they are not to be believed any more than you are.

You think you see Christians TORTURING atheists? You don't have a clue what that word means - YET!
As long as you have breath you can repent. But you do not know how long it will last.

And Shiite Muslims do not act in this fashion. Just ask Salmon Rushdie. They put a death warrant on you. All Christians do, if you write something they deem apostate, is kick you out of their church. Then you go join the Universalist Church.

No you are not too far gone. As long as you are breathing you can repent, believe the gospel, and be saved from hell.
Why would you choose hell?

Mrs. Thomas was not "correct"... they were her opinion. She had the right to say them. However, just because you have the right to say something does not mean their are not consequences to doing so. Go tell your boss what you really... and I mean... really think about him. You have the right to do so... Freedom of speech right? See what happens to your employment.

You say Christians are just like the Muslims but we condemn the Muslims. I am sorry but you are completely ignorant. I haven't seen any videos of a Christian beheading someone for disagreeing with them and then broadcasting it on YouTube for all the world to see.

There are people who call themselves Christians who are not Christians just as there are those who call themselves Muslim who are not Muslim.

Plus, for all you ignorant people out there... the Shiite Muslims are the peaceful one. It is the Sunni Muslims that are the severe strict and violent.

I would be careful bashing my religion. I am a Sunni Baptist.
