<quoted text>So murder is ok in some cases?
In the mind of the murderer obviously YES. Probably not in your mind or mine.

Morality is RELATIVE. Another way to say it is "It depends completely on the mind that is thinking those moral thoughts."

Every murderer knows when he murders that he is doing something wrong or else he would not try so hard to justify/excuse it, or hide evidence and lie about it. Murder is universally wrong. Your "relative" is just another way to pardon an ego's selfish desires.

No, war is justified murder. State execution is justified murder.

Do you think that the people hit by drone strikes do not think of their attackers as muderers?

War is justified murder, if your side wins all is forgiven. If your side loses there may be a big price to pay.

Nonsense. You project your own Christian BS on other people and assume they must look at it like you do.

The world is full of murderers (by our standards) and even NATIONS that murder as a matter of policy. Obviously not every9one thinks murder is wrong.

Yes, even your Bible says so. And I agree with it on this point.
Sometimes nations need to go to war against other nations. Sometimes the death penalty is a good thing, though it looks like we may finally not need it any more.
Nice spin. You will have to show me where it states that in the Bible. It does however state just the opposite. Thou Shall Not Do Murder.

There is no need to get upset and have a tantrum, we are not trying to force you to believe anything, however you are trying to instill in us not to believe. Funny little poster.

They have to be young and defenseless, but the death penalty for murderers in prison is cruel and unusual punishment.

No one is having a tantrum or even "upset."

You aren't smart enough to evoke that kind of reaction in any of us. LOL

And yet the Old Testament condones murder thousands of times over.

Cruel? That is debatable. Unusual? Hardly. It used to be extremely common. It is even called for in the Bible.

Personally I am not in favor of it because if you execute the wrong person there is no taking it back. But if there was a way of being one hundred percent sure that a person did kill someone else, coldly and cruelly I would not be opposed to it at all.

It is far better to follow one's own morals than to follow those handed to them by another human. You are correct, I did choose my own morals, but you are so lazy you follow some morals another human decided on instead of actually thinking about things yourself. Lazy bum.

The Incans thought it was right, and blessed, to kill and eat any strangers for most of their history, to them, it was not wrong.

That's about as wrong as you can be.
Rape resulting in a pregnancy that results in a child .....
Is criminal genes being passed on. Not necessarily stronger better or anything other than genes passed due to a criminal act.

Genocide is murder another criminal act, natural selection encompasses far more reasons than a criminal act that forces it's selection, which BTW is FORCED SELECTION. Or an unnatural selection.

in fact, didn't you claim to not follow any religion? another lie? a lie about your own faith?

is anything you say true at all? even one thing?
I don't belong to any organized religion. But I follow God and his word. Do you have issues with that?

You must be Catholic.
As I recall, the Bible doesn't talk about the seven deadly sins.
Seven deadly sins. Ever hear of Hollywood?

It was a pretty good movie.

They also believe in the Big Three.

no, when they show you verifiable facts that you cannot counter, it is debunked, as has happened with all your silly bible stories and religious cult myths.
