<quoted text>Really, so who made you the judge of that? You say a lot of nonsense then always get caught in a lie. Seen it before.
I donít need to lie kiddo, I cannot be caught in one.

I have an opinion about a lot of things, but I leave actual "judging" to our flawed ( but better than most ) judicial system.

It takes them a while, sometimes a terribly long time, but the usually end up eventually doing the right thing, like they did with Prop 8 and DOMA

Looks like Jizzy doesn't like the court's decision on this one as much as he liked it on gay issues.

That is so true, fortunately they are in the decline.
Hate just does not sell as well as it used to.
You sell it pretty good against those despicable people who believe in God. And polygamists who "use polygamy to commit their crimes of child rape and welfare fraud."

You even insist your brand of hate against poly sells well with your "no one supports polygamy it has a bad image which is well deserved" schtick.

Of course you cover your ass by always adding the disclaimer and lie "But I'd vote for it" as if you get to vote on who marries who.

Is this the same Bible that was written by slave owners? You know the one, don't you, that they used to support the buying and selling of human beings for centuries.
What happened to that Bible?
It's still around. It's enjoyed particularly by that lovely Christian founded group known as the Ku Klux Klan.

Oh not all of them are despicable, just the ones that use it as an excuse for hatred and bigotry, who follow some parts but ignore other parts, and those that wish to force it upon others and their children without their consent.

Not everyone

Just the ones posting on this forum :)

A tiny percentage of them

I am sure there are some good Christians out there, just none here so far.

<quoted text>Hey don't give me the atheist sermon. I was taught to see things as they are. How dare I stand up for my beliefs...LOL I'm sure you could do the same thing as all the atheists do and take a verse here and then one there. When you read a book, do you read a sentence there and and one here? Stop throwing your atheist religion at me.
No, that's how fundamentalists read it. a verse here, a verse there. That's why the only Leviticus code they can site is about men lying with men, while at the same time completely ignoring that the same codes state that cutting one's hair, eating shellfish, sending menstruating women out of the home, and touching pig skin (you know, like a football) are all equally abominable to your Sky Santa.

Since you seem to think you know so much about us Atheists, you should already know that on the whole we tend to know your book very well. It's how we are able to dismiss it so easily.

And there are a lot of good gay rights supporters out there, just not on this forum.

You got it!:)

They donít follow the bible, they pick and choose what phrase they will follow ( and try to force others to follow against their will ) and which parts they will just ignore as nonsense.

I like to consider myself a good Christian. I believe in Christ. I REALLY like a lot of what He had to say about helping the poor and disenfranchised. It's very hard for me not to judge others; especially those who are just nasty and obstinately ignorant.

Christ was reported to have said, "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own?" Sometimes I'd rather just pluck the other person's eye out (glances at Kimare).

I try to give to people as much as I can--whatever they ask for anything in return. That tends to make me a poor capitalist.

Interestingly, back when I was trying to come to terms with my orientation, I thought, "I'm not sure how I can be a Christian and gay at the same time." But God showed me a way.

My point is that I know so many "good Christians" who are not like these bozos (see, there I go again) on this forum.
