When I criticize you, it is not for being a Christian. It is for your behavior.
You claim that but you don't stick to that. You keep making broad generalizations based on the smallest of minorities and stereotype all of faith. How can you not see that?

I just read another posts of yours deducing Christians would believe God gives people cancer? Where do you base this on? My father has cancer and my cousin and brother-in-law have died of it. I have never believed God gave anybody cancer

Here is a word you may want to start using before you ever type the word 'Christians' and that is the word 'some'. An even more honest phrase might be "a very small minority of"

It helps to reduce the bigotry

A god may exist. "God" - Jehovah-Jesus - does not.

And your proof of this is what?

You do know even outside historians have documented the hanging of Christus right?

That doesn't prove he was God but it makes your claim to know he wasn't eve more curious. What do you base that on?

Exodus 20:17 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”

Coveting neighbor's wife ass?

The bible translators call slaves servants, as its more PC.

If you look at it w/out faith glasses, you can see that wives are equated with a hebrew's slaves and livestock. Thats how the primitive bronze age desert ppl lived.

You're pitting rational skepticism against fideism here. They are not equivalent.
<quoted text>
Backwards again.
My realization that faith is some sort of a limitation drives me to what I consider to be an intellectually superior alternative: rational skepticism.

It's not about better people. It's about better ideas.
That sounds good. Except the problem is still just what I said

You come off as someone who believes these "better ideas' come from better people despite your claims to the contrary

You have broad-brushed Christians as people who have zero empathy for hurting others so long as they are forgiven for self-serving reasons, that prayer results in dead children and that Christians believe God punishes people with cancer, that they are all delusional, and that is just a few of the sweeping generalizations you have made

How can anyone with a straight-face claim they don't think they are a better person then the terrible negative (and incorrect) stereotypes they have labeled all Christians with?

I really do not like getting into the habit of questioning someone's integrity but at bare minimum I think you are self-blind

I think you know bigotry is wrong therefore you don't want to see yourself as a bigot but my friend you most certainly are. And if you want a better world you need to start by being a better person

WOW!!! "G" is a Lesbian???
Dang...I didn't know that...
It must be true though. You are a Christian and Christians would not make stuff up just to insult people...would they. At least not a "true" Christian and I am convinced...you are a "true" one.
I believe she is a woman and a Lesbian based on her writings.

all that true christian foolishness I not into that. Christian is a religion, I not into religion, I into Jesus Christ. not the same thing.

But if you want to think I'm a Christian, that OK. Nothing no wrong with the word [Christian]. Just that the word Christian is associated with a religion Christianity. They are millions of people that follow Jesus, and they not no Christian. I know plenty of muslims and buddhist that follow jesus but they not no christian. And I know plenty of christians, that no follow Jesus.

I no insult her. someone, anyone put something out in public as fact and not opinion, and no have any claim to back it up, is a ignoramus. might be a strong word but not to me.

Skombolis "it is a shame to see all this intellect IMO wasted on trying to stereotype all people of faith as negatively as possible. Why not simply allow for the fact that God may or may not exist since it can't be proven and focus your energy on what can be done to make religion and society interact better? You are never getting rid of religion. You are never eliminating it from people's lives so therefore your goal of eliminating its impact on politics or society is a pipe dream."
Thats a good point. But I think you could turn it around and say having your faith tested is good for you. And as the "good book" says you will have tribulation but be of good cheer ;)
An interesting point

Perhaps this is a test

I have not done so well with the 'good cheer' portion of it!

I am trying to make it more about the issues and less about just swapping insults

I do feel an obligation to call something for what I truly believe it is such as things I feel promote a bigoted way of thinking but I am trying to reel in the other stuff

I think this commandment is the one most often broken.

God thought "envy/coveting/jealousy " was important enough to give it a place within those 10 Commandments. If it was so important...why is it one that you seldom see argued about? Is it because it is a "thought crime"...one that is not seen. Or is it because we ALL commit this one so it gets swept under the rug.

iyai.

What this have to do with slavery?

You mean the word male servant? how you know the make servant is not a cook, or a baker? how you know the female servant is not a maid or hairdresser?

All the verse mean is don't be envious and covet you neighbor. it talking about jealousy, hate and envy.

Now you going to show what Paul say that Jesus would disagree with lady?

.. you think co-dependency is bad ??..
.. to me, the rejection of dependency refutes mankind's basic instincts for nurturing, group cooperation and spiritual advancement ..
.. we are dependent on each other, intertwined ..
Being dependent on one another for some things can be healthy

Not being able to function as an individual without a group to prop you up is a bad thing

I would think it rather obvious the type of co-dependency I have been referring to

Some interesting reading on Co-dependency disorder

I'll just take your word for it manoo...

There is that thing about sex outside of marriage and it is illegal in the states to marry a cow...though some men think their wives are cows! Not most of them...but a few.

It is human nature for one to think that what they don't understand is strange. I'm okay with that...how about you?
