I agree, Karl. True Truth was quite disheartening, but on the order of Rider on the Storm and Hick-up, if you know them, but an academic.

His thinking was pretty damaged. He was pro-religion - any religion. He took the Christian's part, even though he was Muslim, arguing against unbelievers about how useful the Christians were to the world, but couldn't provide much in the way of support or specifics. He just knew that the Christians had to be doing good. I guess they told him. He apparently prefers people who worship a rival god to those with no god at all, undoubtedly due to some Muslim teaching that puts Muslims above Christians, and unbelievers (infidels) beneath Christians.

The Holocaust denier stuff was news to me. You've got to be pretty analytically and morally bereft to to buy into it or disseminate that stuff.

But how that distinguishes him to Hiding was what was of interest to me. I thought he was pretty much par for the course.

Stumpjohn at Atheists on the March in America gets my vote for the least likeable theist on Topix.

It is a civil/human rights issue. It's one of the reason Christianity needs attacking and shrinking.
<quoted text>
It's amazing how you want to compartmentalize your church's obstruction of the rights of gay people into either a support of gay rights issue or an opposition to the church issue. It's both. People like me resist the church's injustice, intolerance, and unkindness in support of one of the groups of people that it oppresses.
First of all it isn't a 'church' issue. That is just your bigotry talking. What official church teaching tells people to be unkind to someone who is gay?

And it is a societal issue. You are the one who wants to narrow the focus because the only reason you care is because you try to exploit the issue to stereotype billions of people and further your bigoted agenda

Hi, IANS.
Hiya, Mac.Good to see you here.

That's unbelievable naivety from Gupta. I'm glad for him and the article, but Jesus Christ - he didn't know marijuana was benign and has legitimate medicinal value? It was about the best medicine available to the terminally ill. It treats anxiety, pain, nausea, sleeplessness, and loss of appetite with no virtually no adverse effects in most cases. That puts in among the top three medicines you'd want on a desert island, along with a good antibiotic and morphine.

2. Do you believe in MY God?
A. Oh totally.(That's a fine sword you have there).
B. Nah, I already have one of those.
C.There is no God. Gasp!
D. My ass itches

3. Do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

A. You bet! One time, two times, three times my savior!

A. Yes! Like OMG, it's my freaking life!
B. Yeah, it was decent.

D. I'd rather eat a thumbtack sandwich than read that rubbish.

5. The TRUE meaning of the 6th Commandment:

B.Thou shalt not kill anyone except for the people who don't believe in the same God you believe in or people who don't believe in God at all.

D. Slay away! More people have been killed in the name of God than for any other reason in history.
E. God killed all life on earth, that he created, except 8 inexperienced shipbuilders, one if which is 900 years old!

I don't see how the one sentence implies the other.
<quoted text>
Disagree with almost all of your assumptions there. The words are not what are disrespectful. The thoughts behind them might be. Vulgarity is in the eye of the beholder. How can the arrangements of four letters on a page be more vulgar than the sentiment behind them? How is seeing "fuck" more vulgar that "f*ck"? Was that instance of the word just now vulgar? The emotion behind it was not.
If people choose to be offended by profanity, nudity, or blasphemy, that's on them. None of those offend me.
when speaking with educated persons, there may be more powerful words in context; however the xtian rube will probably appreciate profanity and obscenity

All I had to do was find some verses about punishment. How long do you think that took?
I don't want to burden someone with the task of explaining away every instance of dictatorship in the Bible.
Actually nobody would be burdened at all as nobody is required to answer your questions.

Now what was the purpose of you posting those verses? What are you claiming that contradicts?

And the Bible is clear we are no longer under Mosaic law. Please tell me you are not back to this old tactic of pretending nobody has told you that.

But what are you claiming you have demonstrated? What was in question? I generally don't read your posts when they have to do with your opinion of Christianity as you know little about it. I simply was talking to someone about the claim you could provide contradicting verses all day. So if you want to tell me what you are claiming I can probably help show you what you have misunderstood

Par for the course for what, though? Muslims? I honestly don't know many. But I wouldn't say that religious people in general are going to be holocaust deniers.

I suppose a lot of them are science deniers, that's true. On another thread, LB just told me that evolution wasn't real because Einstein's work wasn't affected by it.

I couldn't stop laughing. You might come here to learn, and to teach, but I'm stunned at the failure of the American education system every time I read something like that.

Good post.
The Christians would have been much better off to have invented a god who is excellent but not perfect, and knows a more than any other mind, but not all. You couldn't hold it responsible for everything.

Karl you are the last person who should be commenting on what people say in public given you wanted it to be mandatory jail for any Christian who says things you don't like online!

But let's focus on educated people. You claim you would vote for gay marriage yet one of the last times you were here tried indulging someone by telling then they take it up the rear like a woman.

So is it fair to say you see anybody engaging in that as less than a man? And do you even understand the conflicting message you are putting out?

This is excellent advice - all Christians should follow it - why don't they?
Matthew 6:6
And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
Truly I say to you, They have their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.
But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Yours in Christ provided Allah is willing and Krishna has Buddha's approval from Zeus.
