Me, neither.

There is no such thing as spiritual discernment when it comes to understanding the printed word. There is only literacy and reading comprehension, both of which seem to be in short supply around here.

1. I've seen Christians ask for forgiveness in their prayers b/c of their masturbation proclivities
2. Christianity includes all kinds of odd religious positions, like nuns and priests, who aren't allowed to have sex (thereby promoting all kinds of immoral sex)
3. Christianity includes a taboo against pre-marital sex. Perhaps the weakest in my list, but it does make for lots of teenage pregnancies due to silly principles regarding sex education and access to prophylactics.
In your paragraph above, you don't seem to realize that by requiring people to be silent about sex you are tacitly endorsing the hegemonic mainstream through censorship while promoting the coverup of sex crimes.
Also, the only way to produce truly educated people is to give them a broad, religion-free education. If you honestly wanted your children to choose your religion and understand its beauty, you would allow them to compare all religions. But you don't want your children to have these kinds of choices. You want them to perpetuate the religious belief system that you've been encultured to. There's nothing inherently evil about that, it's basically how all peoples on the planet work, but it's worth admitting and understanding this point.
<quoted text>
First, I constantly write that all peoples have done terrible atrocities and try very hard not to suggest there is something especially wrong with Christians. Rather, there is nothing compelling about Christianity that would lead one to conclude that their deity and precepts have any more objective reality to them than the claims of any other religion.
I'm not actually condemning Christians. I'd like it if you were capable of understanding other people's worldviews, though. Don't misinterpret me here - I have written that other believers of other religions share the same problems with empathy; they're likewise unable to accept that the other has a valid worldview and subjective reality.
Second, you're right. What am I doing here? I guess b/c my topix friends came here, I did. And then jumped into ongoing discussions. You'll note I haven't commented on anyone's prayers and haven't trolled posts between friends - I've basically restricted myself to answering arguments, and questions. Serrah posted one about evolution - that was fun to answer.
But, yeah, this isn't the place for me. Very sorry to have troubled you.
I see you have made some accusations about believers while excusing your own "friends" behaviors on here. Seems like we all got that "bias" gene in us after all.

In any case, I did enjoy responding to your posts. If you must go... vaya con Dios.

it would be quite difficult to get immoral believers and immoral unbelievers to clasp hands and speak out against injustices
I can tell you that it is pretty much impossible to get any kind of Christian to take a stand against immoral Christian behavior. Take this thread as an example. Pretty much all we saw throughout the whole Dimwit episode was tacit support for a slanderous piece of Christian waste.

If an unbeliever is waiting for Christians to come forward and say, "Skombolis, you are wrong. Clearly, you are guilty of what you are accused. You have shamed our god and our faith. Please apologize" you're going to be waiting a hell of a long time, aren't you?

One or two have stepped up and offered their own apologies, which I appreciate, but apparently, none will dare judge a fellow Christian unless it's over a doctrinal dispute

I always build my pedastals with stairs and railings to come back down... so it's not terrible at all. I even bring a prayer mat.

What about prison guards? Are there good and bad there, too? Just wondering, since I've never been.

To the best of my recollection, you've never denied that your mother was a whore. If somebody can't even bring themselves to deny such an allegation about his own mother, the sense I get about them and their mother is not a good one.

You're such an idiot. As I mentioned to Serah recently, you don't have a single weapon at your disposal that cannot be retroflexed and used to colonoscope you now.

Think of the sickness and group contagion and hate it would require even within the Nazi party to carry out such atrocities.
Nazi Germany was almost exclusively Christian. The Jews in Nazi Germany had about as much hope of German Christians taking a minority position against the immoral behavior of fellow Christians in uniform as I did in this thread.

I'm sure that we can make much better people than that. We need a better ideology than Christianity with its repeatedly failed moral system. Look at you.

Here's a fine grammatical distinction for you: Clothes are hung, but when a person has been put to death by hanging, he was not hung, he was hanged.
I though I should mention that, as the newly ordained Pastor of the Thread.
I like those kinds of thing.

Here's one for you: food is healthful, not healthy. Most food is dead.

.. a cleric addresses the spiritual ..
.. while the roles may intertwine somewhat, rarely does a physician become involved with the emotional or spiritual needs of a dying patient. That's not their role, they're not trained in that area ..
.. hospice works because skilled professionals tend to all the patient's needs ..
.. would you want a cleric addressing your physical needs? Would you want an untrained physician addressing your emotional needs ??..
.. every professional in hospice has a role, and, when your combine their skills, the patient usually reaches a state of acceptance regarding their death ..
.. I, for one, wouldn't want it any other way. Keep the physician out of my emotional and spiritual needs, he/she is not qualified ..
Good post. You are correct.

I could tell you some great stories about hospice chaplains. The only time I ever ate in the Hooters near our hospice offices was when pastor Jerry took me lunch there.

It's a character and trust issue. We don't necessarily have to incarcerate the Skombolises of the world forever, but we also don't want to trust them in positions of authority or responsibility, and certainly not with weapons, even if they claim to have found Jesus in slam.

It appears that in his reading and the comprehension of what he reads, he doesn't look at the entire sentence or statement and suddenly stops at a certain point, and then runs with that erroneous conclusion based upon incomplete information.
He gets to a point, thinks "AHA!"... and never considers the rest of what was stated, which would clarify the thought process.
In effect he creates his lack of comprehension by utilizing incomplete data that he fails to consider.
Very possibly. He clearly lacks the ability to discern the meaning of the written word, rendering him functionally illiterate. But how much reading do you have to do operating a leafblower or stocking paper clips on the shelves at Office Depot?

Well, whatever you may say: sins are only a phantasm similar to a god! So forgot the hole religions!

It may not be practical to expect all doctors will treat their patients in the same manner they would treat a loved one.
Your standards are too low, which is why I had the job and you didn't.

All patients are loved ones while under care.

A physician is expected to do as much for one patient as another in the same circumstances. His teachers expect it, his peers expect it, the medical board expects it, and the community expects it,

Judging a person on superficial considerations such as who they are willing to worship, and letting those that don't worship properly to suffer, is more characteristic of your god than a physician.
Skombolis wrote:
But to me, that line is what separates many doctors from the pack.


You are not fit to judge physicians. Your opinion doesn't matter. You are a felon, which means that society no longer trusts you or values your opinion. That is why you have been told that can't own a gun, serve on a jury, or vote.

"Cleanup on isle five" - that's for you, Dim.
