I think we can agree on at least one main point then. We both wish people would put more thought into their religious beliefs. I think it's reasonable to assume that there would be less believers if that were the case (ie. many 'false' believers, such as those who inherited their beliefs from their culture and parents, would realize they didn't really believe). Therefore, Christians would have less political power; less potential to enforce creationism into classrooms, less power to fight gay marriage/abortion rights, and generally less power to push other fundamentalist Christian values into the public sphere.

Is that something you'd be willing to accept?

And, how can YOU possible be 'in touch' with most American Catholics, hon?

Unlike you, I aspire to be a member of the Church. I do not reject her teachings and hope they change due to my personal desires. I embrace her entirely and submit myself to her teachings. Perhaps you should try the same. You will find it a wonderful state of existence.

Amazing response. Is this how you live your entire life? Childish and provocative foolishness or do you ever pony up with intelligible responses?

You finally meet someone who IS what you claim and still you attempt to convince people of your lies. The act is over and anyone with any capacity for any level of comprehension knows this.

Kerdy was never a Catholic.
At one time, he claimed to be a Baptist preacher, among other job titles.
IF he is a Catholic now, he did not say so.

Again, Wayne, half of the US Catholics support the idea of same-sex marriage.

<quoted text>Chick, I'm not sure what initially ticked you off in life. Was it having a baby come out sideways? Was there a fly in your soup? Was it a lover who said he (or lol, she) would never hurt you but did? Is it a nervous tick? Is it a tightly-grouped colony of fleas near one of your bodily orifices that's doing a football stadium wave which is making you irritable?
Just a little dark humor above. I know that it wasn't Blaze_ who initially set you off, that is unless of course I had been reincarnated, but that is not something that I believe in.
Find rest for your soul ToC, it can truly only be found in The Lord Jesus Christ. You will turn from a TickedOffChick to a

Have a good day.

That’s more an obscene debasement, than “black humor“.
Are you the “Doc“? You sure sound like him. His perverted remarks are very similar to yours. He too, claims to be a Christian.

Could be, but with his twisted thinking, writing style, and obsession with searching the Topix archives for anything he can find on me to sickly misrepresent them, would fit poster Skumbucket/Skombolis. Because of his criminal background, honesty, morals, or anything even remotely decent is lacking in him.
That, and Blaze seemed to think I was "gone", while the Doc knew I was still here.

Stop lying, it is not the same, hardly. You stated:
"You are a twisted, sick, lying, fake spiritualist, God hating reprobate.
1. I am very straight forward.
2. Ok, so maybe I haven't been feeling all that well lately.
3. You have yet to prove even one lie. A person is not a liar based upon your lies or false accusations.
4. Nope, not a spiritualist:
spiritualism
— n
1. the belief that the disembodied spirits of the dead, surviving in another world, can communicate with the living in this world, esp through mediums
2. the doctrines and practices associated with this belief
5. Nope, do not hate god. Find a post where I ever said that. You cannot.
1.) In a twisted way.

2.) You haven't felt well since you hit your head years ago.

3.) When you say the bible is a book of lies and that Jesus Christ is a corpse, THAT is a LIE.

4.) Yes, you are a spiritualist. You even had a conversation once with WIP about sexual experiences with spirits and you said you couldn't handle it.

Quit LYING!

5.)And you DO hate the God of the bible. It is evident in every one of your posts whether you actually USE the word hate or not.

Jesus said, "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.

Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;

and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it."

What did Jesus mean by the above?

Jesus said, "And you, Capernaum, which are exalted to heaven, shall be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day."

I'm going to stay on this for a while ToC. You see, people are still stuck on the version of Jesus that's 1st grade level. They should know what the scriptures says about the other side of Jesus. They read over it looking for the good parts. "Cherry picking" as some would say. I think you have the Dharma loves Greg kind of love in mind when you think of Jesus.

Jesus also said, "And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.

Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come."

Here is what the OT Law actually says if you ever cared to really, I mean really look into it. Leviticus 24:16

"anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD must be put to death. The entire assembly must stone him. Whether an alien or native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, he must be put to death."

Ask Wayne. He's certain he's not a mammal.
Everyone has their point of view. I believe we are mammals in the sense we are warm-blooded vertebrates. But when it comes across that we are animals then I would have to agree with Wayne.

We are not animals, not according to the scriptures. There are people who act like animals, savages even. Like when some heteros or homos lick someone in their anus and the tongue goes all the way up to their rectum, turning their red tongue reddish-brown, that's animalistic.

Or when a mother or father chooses to abort another human, that's animalistic also.

Let me ask you this ToC. Say you are driving down the street and you see a dead deer or dog that had been hit by a car, and it's decomposing. Are you going to pull over and call the cops? Will they send a homicide unit to investigate, putting up the yellow tape and partially closing down the highway?

Let me answer for you and I think you would agree. The answer is a resounding "no".

But if you were deep in the woods, far away from civilization, hiking with your boyfriend or husband, and you look into the woods and notice a single human bone under a mound of leaves, you would get the chills and call somebody. Even if your signal to your phone didn't work you two would double back and find the nearest home with a phone. Scared to death and heart beating wildly. Would the cops come out? Yes. They may even send a chopper and light up the whole section at night to investigate the crime scene. They may even treat it as a homicide. Why? Because human beings are not animals. We are important and not on the same level as animals.

That doesn’t apply to being hated for ANY reason, and it doesn’t apply to you.
Christ is speaking of being hated for being righteous.
You’re not hated because you’re righteous.
If you’re hated here, it’s because you aren’t.
Are you righteous Janeebee? Who do you know that's righteous?

Third question: Do you believe the Bible is true?
