Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

And it seems that you are ignoring the facts of the matter as stated in my posts, it’s not just the church who the press have a downer on.
You are focussing on the church for you own reasons. To me it doesn’t really matter who the abusers are just so long as they are made an example of so potential abusers may at least think about the consequences and the abused can have the understanding that there abuses have been punished for there crimes.
Just because it is a church or a priest does not mean that it should be hidden, just the opposite in fact, justice should be seen to be done.
I haven't said anything even remotely close to it should stay hidden because its a church or priest. In fact I have said the opposite repeatedly and said any abuse in the church should be exposed and I want to see a bigger effort to expose all abuse and not just the abuse some feel is "newsworthy" because to the victims, its terrible no matter where it happened.

Maybe on the 4th try you can figure out a way to make this a disagreement? Sheesh

.. if a member of the Yaqui tribe takes a peyote trip and has a spiritual awakening, they're told not to reveal the experience to anyone and it will acquire a life of its own, guide them mystically throughout their life ..
.. Christians are encouraged to share their personal experience, their testimony. What do you think that's all about ??..
in my estimation, HL stopped talking to me around the time when she was explaining how her super hansome & gay cousin can be attracted to females and ejaculate with them, but his "release" is much more intense with males.

to this i said something to the affect "do you mean to tell us that this narcasisitic horn-dog is holding society hostage over condoning his more intense sexual release???"

and that seems to have been the end of our cyber relationship....:-(

That's nothing.
In one of my cases, the court was selecting a jury from the pool of prospective jurors.
One juror got dismissed.
He was wearing a t-shirt that said, GUILTY, in large letters.
There's this butthole judge in the Riverside court that would've dismissed him, then make him do another jury service.

He's the same idiot judge that asks people if they have vacation time at work or how much they have in savings (when they say they can't afford to be on a jury).

Sigh

Didn't pick up on the sarcasm I guess

Yes I know. That was my point. That despite your contention the UK and its people are so much more focused on stopping child abuse and don't get caught up in simply cranking out stupid "news stories" to appease the masses, I don't believe that to be the case

And I had to delete to other part because its too hard to copy quotes on my phone but you made a distinction between tabloids and more respectable journalism. So what? The tabloids wouldn't exist if there were not people in the UK that wanted to read them. So much for the idea the people in the UK care more about stopping child abuse.

Your nationalism and arrogance concerning an issue that any decent human being anywhere wants to see come to an end was just silly. But if you want to continue with the "my country cares more than yours does" attitude I guess suit yourself

I support killing anyone who takes 30 items or more into the 15 or less express lane and then pays by check that they only decided to use because they didn't have exact change!
Ok maybe not kill. But at least it should be legal to pop one of their tires!
HA HA!!

I support the killing of cellphones that are caught texting while driving.

Oh man, can you imagine these girls today without their stupid cellphones? They'd have so much free time, they might actually learn how to cook....

I heard a saying; Women used to cook like mom, now they just drink like dad.

He's a local hero. His image is frequently seen in murals, and every village has a street called Zapata.
Today is a holiday in Mexico, but it's not St.Patrick's Day. It's the celebration of Benito Juarez's birthday, another Mexican hero. He was a former president from the mid-19th century known for his defense of Mexican sovereignty, his democratic and egalitarian ideals such as his support of indiginous peoples and subordination of the military to civilian control, and his progressive reforms, especially his opposition to the excesses of the Catholic church, which included church-state separation and nationalizing church lands. Juarez also has a street named after him in every village, and appears on the 20 peso note.
Excellente, amigo.

Like most Christians he always has his nose in somebodies crotch. Sex is a dirty word for them. Religion can make you so uptight about it that they cant enjoy it. So they doggedly harass any body having it.
Yes! They're worse than arse-sniffing dogs.

Your bible is at fault because it states "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live:"
They take that literally.
Sorry, that is the Jewish Bible. You are blaming the wrong faith.

It is your hatred and bigotry that caused that confusion.

Are ever going to stop crying? You're as bad as Clearwater. Woe is you.
Did you ever answer my question about what you think faith and your religion have done for you with regard to your intellect, character and personality? Has it made you a better person in any of those areas? I see a whiny, angry airhead obsessed with anal sex and aliens who repeats the same insults and taunts in in almost every post, and who is pretty universally disliked and disrespected here. Do you care? It doesn't appear so.
You've been waiting to use that for payback. How petty.

I answer your question with just about every post I make. You are too full of hate and denial to admit it.

Now you speak for the universe???

No, you speak for arrogant, ignorant,'rational atheist' oxymorons who don't like getting back what you dish out with every post.

Crow pie is a bitter pill...
