Maybe you need to define rape as well. To me, rape is forced, nonconsensensual sex. Would you concede that your bible is filled with examples of your god authorizing or commanding that? How about this one:
Deuteronomy 21:10-11 - "When you go to war against your enemies and the Lord your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives, if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife."
Everybody was barbaric back "in those days", get over it. Some societies (Christians) grew and became more civilized and some (Persians) didn't.

I believe in a fair fight, doc. Be it with fists or with words.
I think religion is a net negative. But I resist the denial of the positives, because they are important.
I think the world would be better off if all organized religion disbanded.
My private beliefs are not religious. I profess spirituality.
I believe there is only one sin - unkindness. I believe we continue after physical death, in some way, but I do not fully understand it.
I believe in that continuation, the only thing about the present life that matters is what we do for someone else.
When I do something bad to another, I feel bad. When I do something kind, I feel good.
I think that connects me to things outside me.
So why oppose same sex marriage?

<quoted text>Thank you. You do get to the heart of it. I'm not outraged nor have you injured me or my church. I will say this might be a pointless discussion but I'll try. From my pov saying a person is Christian doesn't make it so. God states this as well.(Matthew 7:21-23) I've been reading some commentaries of late on many of the faith that were killed by the established church. Many here in this forum would no doubt call all of those people Christian, I wouldn't. Nothing new under the sun. Hate and murder have been around since the 2nd generation of man. People will always try to give an excuse. God knows who belongs to Him. Just speaking for me and my wife but we are thankful to be part of the faith, no going back.

You proved nothing. Just like no one has proved a god exists.

Avidly promoting arson says a lot about his character.
If he did avidly promote arson, there'd be some evidence of it.

Why don't you ask him if he does?

Someone who avidly promotes arson would jump at the opportunity to do so.

My grandfather was Stasi, he didn't die, such is the injustice of this world, he moved to Brazil like many other war criminals, to die in old age and have a catholic funeral.
It's a sad state of affairs but it doesn't make Hitler any less catholic.
Stasi was the communist East German secret police.

Bah. You don't know the first beleedin' thing about Middlle Eastern history.

Have you ever even heard of Timur the Lame? Or his descendant Babur?

Babur was an Uzbeki by birth, born in the Ferghana Valley, but he was heavily influenced by Persian history, culturre and science.

He went on to found the First Moghul Dynasty throughout Hindustan - that's India, to you.

Astronomy, medicine, poetry, mathematics, history (even the concept of zero) all came out of that area at about that time.

Did you never wonder why we use "Arabic numbers" rather that Roman?

Never wondered why Acamar, Acraba, Aldemar and Aldebaran are all Arabic names?
