Isn't it amazing how for every believer, his God's opinions are exactly the same as those of the believer?

And change believers, God's opinions change as well.

Typical Buck. He won't address real arguments. Buck arguments consist of calling people names.

At least, most of the time. And always when you bring in the writings of an expert. Buck will not even bother to glance at them.

A "seeker of truth" my arse. All Buck is interested in is validation of his own beliefs.

This is kinda weird.

WBC tweeted...

"Westboro Baptist Church thanks God for Fred Phelps Sr.’s passing"

I suspect the new WBC management was a bit careless in their wording. If that isn't the case, they must have had a great dislike for their former pastor (whom they excommunicated a few months back).

Christianity doesn't fit the definition of a cult.

Are you drunk already this morning. Your attempt at "making fun" is stupid when the poster already described which one he was referring to. It is not your heretic, jack-legged non-description of Dear Leader who is really just your childish ego and ugly id.

And it is fully evident in the way they speak. I am going to Heaven. I have been saved. Jesus loves me. Wait, Jesus loves Me, for after all, they are their own deity. Then, you're evil. You're going to Hell for not believing like me.*

* Yes, Christers, some no longer prattle about the Hell concept. Once again, the immoral mythology changes with the secular times. Infinite torture for finite thought crime is immoral by modern standards, after all.

I wonder if current American Christers know that just 100 years ago they would be considered heretics for their beliefs.

I lack belief in all deities, including those that nobody believes in or has ever imagined.

Christianity is a cult based on mythology.

Your reading comprehension skills are terrible when your elbow is working full time.

It certainly fits definition 2 in the blue box and 1, 2, and 5 in the white box. And, yes, "Topix Atheists" could fit definition 2 in the blue box.

Every time you get involved with a dictionary, you look more foolish. Enjoy your cult.

Smile.
I disagreed to your post - in order to facilitate a discussion.

I can see you refused or don't know how to do that.

If this is your stance - name calling and all....then you really don't know anythign about your religion.

"how do you know He is not the Creator?"
- Jesus never called himself such.....neither should you....if you follow Jesus in any sense of his teachings.

Some have suggested picketing his funeral. I disagree. That would be stooping to his level, which is something I refuse to do.

Oddly, in his last days as pastor he seemed to be taking a half step back from his intolerance of gays. The board of the church "excommunicated" him...tossed him out for this view. They also were of the opinion that women have a subservient position in the church and tossed out his daughter who had been their long-time media contact. And one of the board members that tossed her out of her position was her own son.

From what I have heard, the quality of their communications has degenerated to about the level of RR's discourse.

This is something that KM is always trying to pull..."You don't know my belief system!"

But IANS has it right. KM may not have given us the specifics, but one can clearly infer from his posts what the major points of his beliefs are. He is far more transparent than he thinks he is.

That's because it took the idiots here months to understand that nothing can be proven in this particular venue, even your hands.
