If by "after their own kind" you mean they don't violate nested hierarchies, I would agree.
Other than that though I'd say you know very little about God's creation because you're too busy idolizing an old book instead of paying attention to reality.
That seems to sum it up. The whole of Christianity doesn't rest on theology, but on a book written by numerous authors over hundreds of years, with stories borrowed from oral tradition and other cultures, translated and re-translated and then collated and reorganized by man resulting in numerous different versions.

Yes, I have, and that is one reason I am a Pagan, but still I would take Christian leadership over Atheist leadership. This is where you guys belong. Here online.
So you would rather have people who support stoning anyone, including you, that opposes them. Someone who supports stoning children, slavery, and refuses to allow science to progress just because of superstitions. That makes you no better than they are.

2 Kings 21:6 ESV

And he burned his son as an offering and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.

2Chronicles 33:6 ESV

And he burned his sons as an offering in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, and used fortune-telling and omens and sorcery, and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.

Deuteronomy 18:10 ESV

There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer

////////::

I would stone them also.

But you think they don't deserve that you think that's normal behavior to burn children alive to worship Satan.

No need in this scenario, for mandatory evolution classes in churches are DUE to mandatory creationism classes in public schools.
However since no-one is forcing evolution in churches then no-one should force religion in public school science classes.
1 - Religion is not science.
2 - It's illegal to be promoted in public schools. But creationists don't care because they think that making USA Christian will bring Jesus back along with the apocalypse. This is why they hate education.
Hello all I'm back like I said i would. and we don't hate education what we hate is you guys making up stuff like evolution and big bang and saying you have proven it correct when you actually haven't.
and I agree with you religion is not science but the bible is like humanities history book. and since god created the universe science follows the bible you people just look away and and say I dont see anything and since I don't its false.

Even better than an atheist state or a theist state would be a secular state, one that doesn't push one or the other, nay? Ya know, something groovy like say, the Constitution of the United States of America that allows freedom of and freedom from religion for all.
Of course if it's theocracy you prefer there are some countries who cater to that too. Might I suggest Iran?
I honestly do not believe an Atheist based nation would ever afford it's people freedom of religion. Even in American Schools Atheist with power do not permit conversations about an Intelligent Design of Earth or The Universe. I don't think they could handle power.

Um .... "Satanism" has never been seen ... because it's a myth. You support stoning children, we know your kind have done horrible things to children.

Sweden is evidence that opposes your notion. There are several others as well.

No duh what do you think they would just burn children alive in public? or say hey look we're burning children alive! no they do it secretively. and also there are children who disappear in holloween and even the police tell everybody to watch out during that day.
also our kind does horrible things to children? what horrible things? also if it has to do about the catholic church then forget it they have a looong history of horrible things in the past and probably present and future.

Nope, it is commanded in the bible that anyone accused of being a "witch," another made up thing, is to be killed. Most of your kind claimed that meant burning them alive, men, women, and children, and they did just that during the Inquisition and Salem witch hunts, probably many more throughout history.

this again listen those people did not know their bible. Jesus died on the cross for humanity. If a person who who was a witch realized what they were doing was wrong and repented then by rights they will be saved. Most of those people were doing it because of their fear. if they actually believed in god then they would have nothing to worry about.
