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.

Oh, there's a bit of irony on that part. Taking a name in vain is actually calling on that name in times when it is not needed, such as saying "god damn it," there is even a parable in the bible about that, Elisha and the bears, where he called on his god in vain so his god did something horrible. Of course modern christians like to "interpret" that as a way to justify attacking anyone who disagrees with them, but the original intent was to demonstrate why that commandment exists.

In older religions, magic spells were cast by calling on the name of the deity they wish to make the request, just another point the christians stole from older religions.

I thought it was something like that, but it never made sense to me that why would God not want you to say, "O God", when you are in pain or something.

I don't get the irony, though.

<quoted text>Now, you are lying. God and there is only one God, does absolutely care about swearing and how one chooses to pollute their mouth with filth and thus defile their very being. When you attend prayer sessions, does your Sikh priest swear and curse at you?
Yes there is only 1 God!!

No, swearing at someone in a fight is different. I wasn't swearing at anyone.

The Sikh priest doesn't swear directly at me but our religious book does have swear words in it.

In reality and even in your pitiful mind, you are only feared by gays, which makes you fear yourself.
I heard that if we request a white sheet then you when put one over your ugly face and we can punch your ugly face back into your head, and we won't even get a peep out of you.
Stupid.
What did I do wrong now?

<quoted text>Sorry, but if we blamed American films, that would mean that you have a weak and lame mind. You know, like Hiding and Lesbum.
If you have a three digit I.Q., then that means that your IQ is one digit higher than Hiding and Catcher's 99 I.Q.
Do you think that Hindus who believe they will come back as a cow are stupid? I mean, that would make most Hindus stupid or do you think that yur western version of Hinduism is a more evolved Hindu religion.
I do, I really get into films!!

When I took an IQ test in school (16yrs), I think my IQ was 135, I don't know what it is now. I think that was a good score.

No, they aren't stupid.

What western version of Hinduism?

<quoted text>Really. So, why not call same sex couples mentally ill. Don't you get the irony, since suicide is a mental illness and over 50% of suicides are homosexuals.
I mean, how could calling people mentally ill who choose sex with the same sex be something bad? Doesn't it let them know that we feel their pain?
I don't get your point! What's that got to do with vain thing?

Erm, a deity which does not exist could not have created anything.

Including a "demon" who apparently hasn't read to the end of the book.

<quoted text>So, if we call gays perjurative words when we are fighting, then that is okay.
No, you are wrong and childish. Making reference to swear words is not the same as swearing. Unless your Sikh priest uses swear words as easy as he uses "house", "car", "God", etc. then using f^g, f^ck, and calling a person a k^nt are not part of your religion. It is just a part of your wearkness, just like if you had sex with the same sex or an animal. All are sins.
What are you on about? Why you hate gays so much?

My religious book swears at evil people and at the mind!
