Whether or not you understand the concept, "the church" refers to an abstract entity. Another example would be "the media".The purpose of asking that was to illustare someone cant pretend their hatred is limited to some abstract definition of 'church' when it is clearly directed at the members.
Also, I don't know where you're getting hatred from.
If you asked IANS if he hated Christians, and he said no, would you believe him?
Christianity is an abstract entity. Christians are people.And by his own admission the churches teach ppl to love. There is no Christian ideology that teaches ppl to hate gays so your comparison doesnt work. Whats more you have admitted yourself he uses "Christians" as an entity which he clearly does when stereotyping.
Islam is an abstract entity. Muslims are people.
Does that help? Maybe? No? I tried.
Christianity, the abstract entity, produces prejudice and intolerance towards homosexuals. Islam does too.
They (the entities) are not doing that consistently. It's a theme that is more prevalent in some circles of influence than others to differing degrees. In America, the vast majority of bigotry towards homosexuals comes from Christians. If that's not true, convince me.
What is the difference between an anonymous poster on the internet, and a real person?Dont feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for a guy so needy he has to look up to anonymous posters on the internet.
You've told me about your projections. I'm not interested.And no it doesnt require 4000 characters for me to understand you as you and what motivates your posts is easy to follow
If you don't understand the difference between talking about Christianity, and talking about Christians, have you at least recognized that some of us do make that distinction, and that it is very important to us?
I know I said "us", but try to stay focused. I'll keep the gang at bay long enough for you to stay on point.
