Another opportunity to spew your racism and supremacist beliefs.

Go ahead, the more you expose yourself, the less we need to do it.

"That will come about quickest with the use of forceful, urgent, and indignant language"

"It's more than a right. It's a duty."

Then he quoted Hitchens: "I think religion should be treated with ridicule, hatred and contempt, and I claim that right."

What a compassionate, loving, tolerant, friendly Topix Atheist Secular Humanist! huh?

Sure you did. When you said "Yes I am."
I did say, however, that I don't have compassion for nonliving things, which includes abstractions.
Ya, you didn't say that. You spouted all that Christian hate, I mockingly called you compassionate and you agreed.

Funny....

I disagree.
The Supreme Court reads the Free Exercise Clause differently than you do. They see it as protecting religious beliefs, not necessarily religious practices.
The school teachers have no obligation and no authority to reinterpret that Clause. They're there to teach, not to be a pretend wall.

I could come up with a list of people I believe promote hate crimes, but hide under teh guise of religion - namely Christianity.
Lively is but just one.
WBC associates are another.
Robertson is another. His "God hates Haiti" comment is a clear indicator that this person is not sane, promotes destruction, and fosters hate.

There you go again. You want to make your point at saying learning Jewish is pointless then rant and say that horseshoeing is a "pretty useless skill".
Yer a butthole.
A "handful" of horseshoers eh?
There are over 9 million horses in America.
There are over 4-1/2 million Americans that are involved in the industry. They are horse owners, service providers, employees and volunteers.
Then you add in the tens of millions more that are just spectators.
I have a feeling that there's more horseshoers in America than atheists.
Jeez. I have to come to the conclusion that a box of rocks is a genius compared to you.

Did you completely miss the "unless" following the "useless skill". Oh. Right. Your a fundamentalist. You don't understand qualifiers.

And you have tried desperately to divert from the topic.

What is the use of teaching 3rd graders Hebrew? Is there any at all, other than religious indoctrination?

So every person that works with horses shoes horse? And people that watch horse races shoe horses?

I don't think so.

Knowing how to shoe horses is important if you are one of the few that actually show horses. Knowing how to shoe horses is unimportant to the rest of us.

Ahahahahaaaa!!!
That's exactly what you're doing.
"don't follow what their bible says, they follow what they think their bible says or ignore what it says"
The bible isn't my religious book, and I do not name myself an adherent of the religion by use of the word "Christian".

That book speaks about how to treat slaves, different classifications of slaves, and the conditions when a person will be born into slavery among other things pertaining to slavery, too.

The Greek word used for "slave" in what is said to be the language of the time is
"doulos", which is often translated in Christian bibles to "servant", but "doulos" is the word, and it does translates to "slave".

Try reading your bible with that thought in mind.

470 “The servant<[slave]>who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. Luke 12:47
