The truth is you don't know what 99.999999% of Christians do or think any more than you do people in general
Speak for yourself.

That may be true for you, because your knowledge is extremely limited. I think that's been well established by my continual claim that you have expertise in nothing, and your inability to rebut that claim.

And part of that limitation is not realizing that others might know MUCH more than you.

That's good. Keep up with the therapy and one day you may have the intellect of a 5 year old.

That's a good boy.

That was just a guess on my part. That happens to me when I read yours too.

One time I had parts of me in Faith. That has occurred with Hope and Grace as well.

How is it that I'm stereotyping, again?

When you claimed a post someone made on Topix giving their personal opinion tainted Christianity
Jesus, you're a stupid man.

Do you know what stereotyping is? I'll tell you what it's not: It's not formulating an opinion about the nature of an idea or other abstraction by observing actual people and modifying ones opinion with each new instance. If I read and interview a thousand Christians over the course of several years on Topix, and each one contributes a small part to my total understanding of what it is and what it does - some tainting it with their behavior, some not - then I have done an informal study and drawn conclusions based on evidence.

You taint your religion. Trifecta taints it. Shrink taints it. Red Apples taints it. Is that stereotyping either any of you or Christianity? No, it's not.

Like it or not, you are each ambassadors for your faith.

When you claimed RR being racist reflects on Christianity even though his views on race have nothing to do with his faith


Of course they do.

With a better ideology, he would be much less likely to hold such opinions. Christianity facilitates any beliefs you'd like it to, and the opposite. Humanism, for example, would tell him unequivocally that his racism is unfair and immoral. From the Affirmations of Humanism:

"We are concerned with securing justice and fairness in society and with eliminating discrimination and intolerance."

"We attempt to transcend divisive parochial loyalties based on race, religion, gender, nationality, creed, class, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, and strive to work together for the common good of humanity."

None of the dozen or so humanists posting here have demonstrated any racism. You and Riverside Redneck have. How many of you are there? About a dozen? That's typical of my experience on Topix. I have seen one one racist unbeliever - "Pat" from Connecticut - out of hundreds (and I'm not sure that he would call himself a humanist), and dozens of racist Christians out of an approximately equal number. We were just reminiscing about a rabid racist Christian from Colorado, Wolverine.

You're a fool or in denial to think that such observations are meaningless.

Submission to this church is not a virtue. It will make you a worse if you let it. Think about it: The best Christians we encounter here and in history are all strong minded and independent - people that wouldn't let themselves be absorbed into the hive or embrace its vicious swarm ethics.
Those that do become buzzing pests like about half of the Christians posting in this thread.
.. if, like Galileo, my existence was threatened by the church, I would submit. Wouldn't you? Hence, wouldn't submission become a positive quality ??..

.. if I submit to you voluntarily, I display trust, correct? If you force me to submit, I feel disdain, distrust and disgust ..

.. some churches commit spiritual rape via fear and shame (especially with children), submit their bid for power, demand authority and claim ultimate victory over the unknown. They quash the spirit and are destitute of virtue. It's the responsibility of any civilized society to destroy such organizations ..

You ended your post by saying this:
"Faith is divisive, damning. So what's good about it? I've been asking that for a long time here. Can't get an answer from anyone, it seems."
What answer would satisfy you? Is there one? And why do you even think you deserve one?
Hidingfromyou wrote:
You could just be honest and reply that you can't answer the question. I mean, all you did was switch topics rather than address my question about faith.
That's not quite all he did. He also tried to demean you by implying that you aren't worth an answer.
Hidingfromyou wrote:
You are making blanket statements about me that are BS. Why do you need to mischaracterize - and therefore demonize - me thus? And all so that you can refuse to answer a simple question: what is good about faith?
OK. I guess you did notice. That's how he defends his positions: personal attacks on those that dare disagree.
Hidingfromyou wrote:
Is the sum total of your argument made up of misdirection, mischaracterization and argument fallacy?
Yeah, but don't tell him that it reflects on his ethics and its source.

you claim to be a christian, your beliefs are defined, and not by you. else you are not a christian. Do you notice that none of the other christian rebuke your behaviour. In fact a couple of the very damaged actually show active support. That means the morality of the christian ethos may be measured by your posts. Want an analysis?
Nicely said, Karl. Of course we can judge Christianity based on observing Christians.

Soon you'll hear what a bigot and stereotyper you are for coming to conclusions based on those observations.

Skombolis would cry "Foul!" at a comment like that.

You are dishonest in trying to say you didn't.
Nothing new w you. I understand this.
My post to BT regarding your slanderous post towards him being a " murderer".
( who do ou think you are - God, Skombolis?)-
Is something I would have posted irregardless I'd you were also attacking my person at the same time
or not.
You are out of line- and you feel for some reason you are justified in making accusations like this towards BT and others.
You are without a doubt - a filthy topix christian.
You think apologies mean anything- come on man! Own up to your personal mental dis function.
"Sorry" doesnt cut it in the real world.. I never accept a "sorry".,
I expect much more from my children than you could ever hope to muster up.
You make me laugh.. You are pitiful.
Hateful and small. Yet so very pitiful..

I was wrapping up and had skipped a lot of posts assuming they all just fell into the category of "business as usual" on Topix
Seeing this exchange by you and Larry was well worth the scroll back
Larry and I had a falling out a while back and have since patched things up
While I think I still had a basis for my position as far as order of events went, it turns out I was way off base about a poster he had challenged me on for going after
I would have bet money I had it right. Even knowing that all the game-playing on Topix very easily could have made me hyper-sensitive to the possibility in other situations.
The specifics aren't important and I have since patched things up with that poster as well. It took some doing as I had it about as wrong as someone can get it and in most cases the bridge would have not only been burnt but chopped down, cut into little pieces and buried under ground!
Its a testament to the poster that I was given a fresh start
Larry is good people. I am glad things are good with us
You are good people. I'm glad you and I got to the place we did
And I am glad you and Larry worked this out
While my threshold for Topix seems to be waning and my pessimism growingits not to the point where I can't see the value in finding the diamonds in the rough
There are still some good folks on Topix. I am happy to see two of them were able to see it in each other
Kudos to you both
I appreciate this posts skom and your support, your also good people..........

You no know nothing.

All you know is acts from made up personas on a fantasy site including your act. Your offline behind the billboard life is just so miserable pathetic and a waste you mentally and emotionally invest your life into a made fantasy internet site and pretend that you is the mayor and rule and know anything about this made up online existence.

You're simply stark DUMB.
