I've seen that. I think you posted it a few times a whole ago. I don't find it interesting, I find it condescending.
I find it to be an appropriate and *to the point* depiction of your deity concept.

I'm sure Christians will disagree.

Those are Christians. Modern Christians. They use the same bible you do, and find that it does support the killing of "witches", and many others, for various reasons.
If you look at some of those videos, you'll notice they throw rocks from time to time, too.
Nothing like a good old fashioned Christian stoning.

You don't understand God's Love.
When a atheist wishes harm on a Christian it is Satan committing the most heinous atrocity in the Universe.
When A Christian prays that an unbeliever die and be eternally tortured it is God's Loving Will.
Get it right or you will be prayed to death and eternally tortured!

They are Chrisitans. Just like many around the world.

In the USA Christians don't burn witches now. They lynch and beat to death gays and abortion supporters. A few decades back they were murdering blacks and before that Jews and before that Catholics (a bit of a contradiction IMHO).

Religion is the root of all evil.

Those are your words, not mine. I haven't given you my opinion about how I feel about that, just that I choose not to argue with him or even criticize him.
He said that he hoped a particular person died so that he could piss on their grave.

How does that make you feel?
I object to Christian homophobia and that makes me the bigot?


No. You object to everything that Christianity is, you're absolutely intolerant to Christians, to Christianity, and to the Christian church.

From my point of view, it appears that you hate us. Not any one or two particular people, it seems that you just hate all of us and everything that we stand for. That's why I call you a bigot.

If you're not a bigot, I am very willing to entertain the idea. But you have to demonstrate to me why you are not.
Sorry, but you've got it turned around. Christianity is bigoted against both gays and atheists
See, that right there is why I call you a bigot and why I think you're a bigot.

You've given a label to all Christians for the acts of some Christians. That's just as bigoted as some racist saying it because some blacks commit crimes, all blacks are criminals. Or that because some men go bald, all men go bald. Or that because some lawyers are crooks, all lawyers are crooks.

No matter which way you slice it, when you label all for the acts of some that makes you a bigot.

.. isn't western civilization superior because of colonization; the rape and pillage of foreign lands and people ??..
.. in the Congo alone, Belgium stole land resources, enslaved the people and murdered 50% of the population. Yes, they were Christian but there's always a flip side to every coin. Secularists such as Jefferson enslaved blacks and robbed the natives of their land ..
.. how did Belgium Christians help the Congolese? How did secularists help the Native Americans ??..
.. is there any perfect philosophical or religious system? Doesn't it always come down to how we treat each other ??..
(( Hug ))
Human beings are animals. We try to rise above that. We fail in that glorious task far too often.
It just seems to me that secularist helped us rise while religion drags us down.

Don't worry about the misdirection. It was an experiment for you.
I honestly don't think Red Apples is worth your hatred. You should only hate people who can challenge you on an equal but opposing level, perhaps whose challenge poses real threat. Red Apples isn't in your league. Having feelings other than "pity" and "irritation" for him, well, what's the point?
I try. I fail. It is like trying to have compassion for a rabid dog trying to tear your throat out.

Hmmm, you're right. It's more complicated that I made up. Sorry.
"Today, more than 80 percent of the Kisii are Christians, with a few still practicing their traditional religion. Gusii believed in a supreme god called Engoro, whom they believed created the universe and was the source of all life. Death was considered an "unnatural" event brought on by witchcraft. Kisiis believed in medicine men and the spirits of their ancestors. Today, witchcraft is still feared in Kisii communities."
http://www.kenya-information-guide.com/kisii-...
There are lots of schools in this town. I can't get a more exact location, or the specific people who did it - the news is too vague.
The killings were probably motivated by some sort of hatred and politics, plus a history of witchcraft fear and use of blame for social reasons, plus Christianity.
"The town's residents are predominantly Christians and Protestants. The majority of residents identify with the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church. Other residents identify with Pentecostal Assemblies of God Church and evangelical inter-denominational congregations such as Redeemed or Full Gospel Church of Kenya. Recently built is a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, suitable for the local congregation to meet as well as hosting larger annual meetings. Also, the town has a Mosque for Muslim faithfuls and a small Temple for Hindu faithfuls who collectively constitute the minority of the municipality's population. There are local and international based non-governmental (NGO) and philanthropic organizations based in the municipality. These aid organizations mainly target the needy bright or economically poor students who seek funds to further their studies in schools and tertiary institutions and also addressing pressing societal impact issues."

Municipal schools such as the vintage Kisii Primary School, Jogoo Primary School,Nyanchwa Primary, Getembe Primary are based in the town. Due the large population and ever-increasing demand for education, most public universities and colleges have set up new Kisii based campuses and branches in the town. Most notable institutions that have set up in the town include the Presbyterian University of East Africa, Egerton University, University of Nairobi,Jomo kenyatta university,Kenya Methodist,African Nazarene,Mount Kenya,Bondo university and Narok University college.There are also severall middle level colleges and polytechniques namely;Gusii institute,Kenya institute of Management,Kisii College of Accountancy,St.Annes college,Kisii DICECE(Government college training early childhood teachers) and many more

Like in the New Testament where Jesus teaches his disciples to harness energy and when Paul explained how to make an internal combustion engine and the John of Patmos revealing the plans for an airplane.

ROFLMAO

They couldn't even give us the three field rotation system for argriculture... and they lived in an AG society!

That would have saved billions from starving to death in the following 1000 years.

However I posted Amina's story because I believe a lot of Shariah Law is based on the Mosaic Law. Muslims consider Moses a prophet.
You are correct. And Christian laws have been based up on the same thing for the last 1700 years.
