I used to post, when I first arrived on Topix, that I thought indoctrinating children into a religion was child abuse. While I haven't changed my mind about that, I haven't brought it up in a long time either.
Instead of limiting that to children, I'd like to expand it to include anyone who doesn't have the ability to rationally evaluate claims. I can just call that unethical behavior instead of child abuse. If we had truth in advertising for religions, they could not survive. If people were trained in rational skepticism prior to adopting religious beliefs, religion could not survive. People have to be tricked, manipulated, lied to, and preyed upon when they are at their weakest, in order to adopt most religious beliefs.
It really doesn't take much looking to see how much damage these cons inflict on people. Pisses me off.
That wasn't you who posted that, Tide.

It was a fellow by the name of Xdanox.

I don't get the big deal about homosexuals.
I know how to say "No, thank you" and "Can we just be friends?".
somehow you are right
but to be friends of unbelievers morally fallen from Gods Moral Law
is not proper and abomination
bible warn you
"Bad association spoil good habits".....
you as christian can not be friend of gays,alcoholics drug users, or adulters ungodly wicked atheists
read 2 Cor 6;14-16
verse 14 clearly warn you;
" be ye not unequaly yoked together with unbelievers;
for what fellowship hath the righteouesness with immoral unrighteouesness and what communion hath light with darkness
read 15-16...... to understand better this warning

I direct you to Gods Word, because I am not teacher of anybody
according to 2 Tim 3;16
I aslo encourage to get full light about unbelievers from
1 Cor 5;9. 1 John 1;6. Eph 2;31. Heb 3;6

you can basics of Bible,to chalenge all"christian faken God followers and Gods mockers
God bless you Lambchop
sorry your awater missing full name should be Lambchop not Lamchop

And a bit of irony...

John 8:7 (KJV)
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Please keep in mind, I don't believe in any of these stories.
Ok, so:
1. Your deity feels that it's ok to frighten men into honestly planning to sacrifice their own sons. And he doesn't mind that he made Abraham plan out murder, lie and forceably tie up his son, thereby doing violence to his son (and emotional trauma!).
2. Your deity feels that it can make everything right by "providing" Abraham with new children, when he's extremely old and likely unable to care for those newborns properly.
So children can be substituted freely. New children are payments for past crimes.
Oh, I'll remember these lessons when I refer to your group of religions as Abrahamic - no kidding! Hand in hand with repulsive deity.
If I was the kid, I'd spit on my cowardly father and his sadistic, evil deity, and never look back.
Abraham was punked by the Ashton Kutcher deity.

Isaac moved to Seattle and started a band called AltarNative.

He never spoke to his father again.

The Bible teaches us that it's always wrong and that it's immoral.
That's because the people who thought up that shit didn't know any better.

By the way, "secularism" doesn't teach anything.

Even if you mean Secular Humanism, you are still misrepresenting it.

SCALIA OFFERS TO HELP POPE JUDGE GAYS

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Responding to Pope Francis’s suggestion that the Pope is not capable of judging gays, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia contacted the Vatican today to say that he would be “more than happy” to help the Pontiff do so.

“If he’s having trouble judging homosexuals, well, then I’m his man,” Scalia told reporters after making his offer.“I have over a quarter century of professional experience.”

Justice Scalia said that he was sympathetic to Pope Francis’s difficulty in judging gays, but added,“Once he spends a few weeks watching the master at work, I’m sure he’ll get the hang of it.”

“I wasn’t great at judging homosexuals my first year in the job, either,” he said.“But now I can do it without thinking.”

Justice Scalia said that once Pope Francis feels confident about his ability to judge gays, he would help the Pontiff learn how to judge minorities and women.

Your obsession with every thing Skom posts has gone way beyond creepy and is now a full blown example of someone that is clearly psychotic. Perhaps you can sneak back in to the United States and get help. Because I'm sure the kind of competent professional help you need would be very hard to find in Mexico.
Uhm...Skom responds to IANS with equal ferocity. So are you going to write him this letter, too?

Good post above - couldn't agree more. How do we then educate people before they get stuck with these parasites?

Ugh I'm so sick of hearing that.
You people are so negative.
Your response isn't adequate. Sorry. I'm sure you're not discriminatory, except to women, but the Christian religion has to answer to these crimes they've committed and are still committing, in some regions.

Your answer reminded me of a representative of the Catholic church who was attacked for their stance on homosexuality, their actions for pedophile priests, and the various crimes against humanity it carried out for hundreds of years.

She answered in the same way "you people always bring these issues up! Can't we move beyond them?"

No. No, you cannot. You haven't answered for them yet.

(not you personally, and I'm aware that the Catholic church is undergoing some changes atm).

From the guy who thought he get Scar to fall for the "I believe God doesn't exist" ruse.

I don't fault him for trying.

Faith and science go hand in hand.
I can see that, the way an ignorant child (faith) needs to hold the hand of the adult parent (science).

And whenever faith isn't holding hands with science, being completely subordinate to science, it runs out in front of traffic.

Good analogy, RH.

Please point to one Christian theocracy where the leaders didn't lie for profit, and didn't cause massive human suffering.
