Is Jeff Dahmer not as bad a guy because some days he ate pizza instead of people?
No. It'd be more like saying humans are evil murderers because Dahmer is a murderer.

You can't stereotype all for the negative acts or impacts of few.

Exodus 6:2-3
And 'Elohiym spake unto Mosheh, and said unto him, I am Yahoweh:
And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Yitschaq, and unto Yaaqob, by 'El Shadday, but by my name YAHOWEH was I not known to them.

Without your church, there would be no reason to think that any atheist is less than human just for being an atheist.
Who thinks you are less human because you're an atheist?
Why should we value your church just because some of you don't become atheist haters under its tutelage?
I'm not suggesting that you value Christians, so why ask?

And don't say "church"... In that one sentence you asked about the church and "some of you" at the same time. That tells me you know "the church" is Christian people. Just be honest.

<quoted text>Have you been behaving today?
hahaha; I have - it is glorious down here, a great Autumn day, with the sun shining nicely. Have done my chores as such, played some darts (trying to get a bit more accurate as it has been years since I played) and now, off to get ready for a couple of hours at the pool. After the pool, will be in the steam room and the spa and then a nice long deserved shower; ending of this week and getting ready to start the next week. End of month at work of course, so many reports to get organised and balanced, ready for the Board. A very balanced life, in my eyes at least, Dr Reality, with a little bit of many things to make it interesting :O)

Because only YHWH God can make a person a Jesus follower. And since his response is basically [I don't believe in your God], then that pretty much shut me down to. Because I can't do anything with that response. I only is a man, only God make the believer.

HL, you have hit the nail on the head.
You have in effect compressed, into a short post, an argument that will be made in the U.S. Supreme Court, in an amicus curiae brief, in the pending gay marriage cases.
The brief is from......Howard University.
Anybody know what type of institution HU is?
Nonsectarian. They don't relate to a specific religious or political group.

Recopied from previous posting : "You're not used to these opinions, and you are shocked and offended that people that hold them can now express them. I would like the Christian church to become as impotent and silent as the Druids. Christians have had that agenda regarding their critics for centuries, and had once been quite successful at stifling criticism. "Until secularists made them illegal, their preferred methods had been burning people - especially women - alive, stretching and twisting them on the rack, impaling them in the iron maiden, and lacerating their internal organs and soft tissues with the pear to name a few. "Thereafter, you simply marginalized and dehumanized us, declaring us unfit to serve as teachers, jurors and witnesses in court, elected officials, coaches, and adoptive parents. But that too is disappearing. Today, you have to settle for keying our cars, harassing our children, boycotting our businesses, libeling and slandering us behind our backs, and cruelly executing our pets."

The words were in quotation marks. You were told that they were recopied from another post. They weren't written to you. They were reposted for you to read.

The church is responsible. Just as it is the primary source of Westerm homophobia, it is also the primary or sole source of atheophobia. I hold it accountable.

Yes, I'm asking you to believe that I don't know. I've never heard of someone cutting off a dogs head because of Christianity, or any religion for that matter. Are you talking about an isolated incident or what?
No I'm not. And you're so ill-informed that it is impossible to discuss the reality of your church with you.

But that's fine. You don't need to understand. You don't need to agree.

You're accusations are baseless and pointless.
Your judgments are of no value to me. You are completely unaware of how atheists are treated, and apparently uninterested. There is a reason why we are mostly closeted.

"Is America the sort of country where Christians can harass an atheist girl in school, assault her father, then blame the father for the assault and file criminal charges against him? Is America the sort of country where the father can be told to leave the state if he wants the charges dropped? Yes, America is that sort of country because American Christians can be exactly that sort of person."

Why bother reposting a post to me that was meant for another poster?

Then you agree that I'm not offended.

Good.

Nothing to do with me?

lol

Can you post your thoughts on more than one line?
So is the church, but at a much reduced size.

Is that in the imaginary topix world of IANS?

That ain't happening, man.

A friend of mine is missing his left arm. When he grows it back, I'll believe your prayers have real biological meaning. Until then, I suppose they mean something to you.

<quoted text>Your point is meaningless and without substance, Prayer is not a waste of time to the believer as it has worked wonders in the lives of those who believe when mixed in with faith, and since you obviously do not believe then kindly speak only for YOUSELF and stop telling others that they are wasting their time praying.
What is it with reading comprehension on this thread?

Do you not see the part where I write "I suppose they have some meaning to you."?

The very best that prayer can do is unite believers - and produce the placebo effect. Don't get me wrong, those are very powerful and important effects.

It also misguides some, but not all, into thinking that some medical intervention only worked b/c of their deity and not the chemical effects of modern medicine.

There's that atheist mantra.... "You just don't understand."

No, I don't understand. Which is why I'm asking an atheist to help me understand.....

But you don't, you just play that broken record.
