If the Christian husband really reads and understands the NT it's pure context, it becomes very clear and simple. The wife is to be loved and protected.
Like a car, huh?

The task of the wife is to nurture the family, while both husband and wife work equally to sustain the family in it's entirety.
What is the difference between sustaining and nurturing? Bringing the man a sammich?

Being a Christian wife is demeaning.

How can you lose when you have a telepathic, psychopathic, ultimate weapon on your side?

Nice looking dog.

I have girls - a black lab and a puggle https://www.google.com/search... .

Have you heard this one?:

A man runs into the vet's office carrying his dog, screaming for help.
The vet rushes him back to an examination room and has him put his dog
on the examination table. The vet examines the still, limp body and after a few moments, tells the man that his dog, regrettably, is terminally ill.

The man, clearly agitated and not willing to accept this, demands a
second opinion. The vet goes into the back room and comes out with his cat and puts it down next to the dog's body. The cat sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, poking and sniffing the dog's body and finally looks at the vet and meows.

The vet looks at the man and says, "I'm sorry, but the cat thinks that your dog is terminally ill, too."

The man is still unwilling to accept that his dog is dying. So, the vet brings in his black labrador, who sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, and finally looks at the vet and barks.

The vet looks at the man and says, "I'm sorry, but the lab thinks your dog is dying too."

The man, finally resigned to the diagnosis, thanks the vet and asks
how much he owes. The vet answers, "$650."

"$650 to tell me my dog is dying?" exclaims the man.

"Well," the vet replies, "I would only have charged you $50 for my
initial diagnosis. The additional $600 was for the cat scan and lab tests."

Oh, sorry Christians. I'm sure he's not ultimately psychopathic.

Yes, they are, but you're a few centuries too late in switching gears on this one. Christianity is on an arc to irrelevance, and I do not think that you can stop the momentum of that trajectory in the time remaining before you lose your voice.

Do you understand what I mean by that? The Druids used to call the shots in a time and place long ago and far away. But now, you can't hear them. You might not even have known that they are still around. which is my point.

After pope Urban VIII looked through Galileo's telescope, he had a choice. He could have said, "Look at how marvelous our god is!"

But he didn't. He eventually had Galileo arrested, a short-sighted remedy for a nonexistent problem.

Here it is centuries later - the eleventh hour for Christianity in the West - and the pope finally capitulated and apologized to Galileo's memory. He also embraced evolution.

But nobody cares. It's far too late for that. The Christian church is irrevocably cast in the role of the enemy and opposite of science for at least as long as it takes for that light to dim from view.

<quoted text>You're right, sorry gay atheists, all gays are ultimately psychopathic. You are not alone. It is not your fault, it is not you, it is the gay condition. IN your evolution world, after 200,000 years, only 10 countries have same sex marriage, no one has voted for it, and only less than 90% of humans accept homosexual deviancy as a part of social construct.
Psychopathic is wishing people who steal a candy bar get tortured for all eternity. Gay people generally don't want that, actually, most gay people I have met just want everyone to be happy.

Oh, and why are you so obsessed with gay people? Makes people wonder what's in your closet.

I have said this a million times, and I will say it a million more. Psychiatrists are like preachers, con artists who crave money and power, and nothing more. Both have assumptions and presuppositions based only on their own personal ideals and nothing based in hard evidence. You really are easily fooled.

Did I tell you about the time when I put the Wolf spider under my psychiatrist's coffee cup when he was searching for a book?

When he picked up the cup, the spider dropped in his lap.

It was classic. He had to change his clothes.

He blamed it on me but I just smiled.

[QUOTE who="Laconic Assassins"do you think that an atheist who does not drink or smoke at all, is a better person than a Christian who does sometimes?[/QUOTE]

Usually, if the atheist is a humanist rather than an astrologer or a Stalinist.

As you can see from that, atheists come in radically different flavors. "Atheist" is really not a very descriptive word, although it's all the Christian generally cares to know about a freethinker.

In my experience, humanists tend to be better people than Christians. Christians only claim to be moral, but I see not morality in obedience. Morality requires self-actualization, something pretty nearly impossible for somebody that believes that he is sinful flesh being watched and judged 24/7.

If you teach a child such things about itself, and never stop judging it or let it wander from your view, it cannot completely mature, right? It cannot fully develop into the responsible, autonomous individual that is latent in him.

Same with Christians. They can rarely self-actualize under the microscope of an angry, judgmental, capricious, volatile, jealous, and vengeful baby sitter.

That was actually cool. I love spiders, almost as much as I like cats.

It's odd that some people still have the instinct to fear spiders, especially people who pretend to know more about the brain than they do. I think this is irony.

Seriously? Look at you. You're mind has been raped, but not by demons. By your priests.

You have lost your mind, so you stay in the past and yearn for the future, and live not in the present now. You will never find God until you live in the now.
You Christians project to beat the band. It's amazing to see. A Christian has already written of this life. He learns to despise "the world" and his own substance, "the flesh"

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27

"For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh" -
Romans 8:3

This teaching alienates you from the rest of us, who are proud to be human and alive in this world here and now, and forces your gaze to fix on your promised reward. You are told repeatedly how insignificant this life is compared to the future. Were you unaware of that?

Its not about control, thats just how you feel.
The church is all about control and exploitation. Bishop John Shelby Spong said it best:

"Religion is always in the control business and that's something people don't really understand. It's in the guilt-producing, control business.... and so they create this fiery place which has quite literally scared the hell out of a lot of people throughout christian history. And it's part of a control tactic.

"The church doesn't like for people to grow up, because you can't control grown-ups. That's why we talk about being born again. When you're 'born again' you're still a child. People don't need to be born again, they need to grow up."

"Magic" is such an elementary way of explaining God's power. I guess if that makes it easier for you.....
Magic is as descriptive as the bible on the matter. How does your god do what he does that is better described in other words? Are there forces or laws at work? If so, please describe them, and how you know about them.

For all we are told about it, your god might fold his arms in the horizontal and twitches his nose like Jeannie. Or like this witch :

It was the inevitable "Don't underestimate me" period in our therapy.

Damn, I miss therapy.

That dude had so much to learn.
