In a democratic Republic like America it doesn't matter why you want to do something peaceful with other consenting adults; it is always the job of the Government to protect your right to do any peaceful thing with other consenting adults.
The fact that all of us carry Christian baggage around is how Christ-insanity gets put into our law books for Christians and non-Christians alike to suffer from.
My grandfather was arrested because he wanted to have a glass of wine with Sunday dinner. My uncle was arrested because he married someone who was not white. And my brother was arrested because he wanted to smoke pot. I have read stories of gay men being arrested for having consensual sex in the privacy of their own bedrooms.
I refuse to look at this issue like we need a cause to explain why a man is attracted to a man before it is acceptable. If you want to have gay sex, or not, it is acceptable. If you were the only one in the whole entire world who wanted to have gay sex it is still the governments responsibility to protect your right to do it.
I hate Christ-insanity because of all the damage it has done to countless millions, billions of lives.
our US not a Democratic repu blic but is a Constitutional representative PResidental Republic, our sexy crooked Founding father bilked us all out of democracy! LIES , all lies fooled the dumbed American populace creampuffs into believe it a democracy it is NOT a real democracy. Wake up time all!

No, it's not and the fact that you casually dismiss "the many other incidents" reveals that you're an immoral azzhole.
Those incidents are wrong, but you have to weight the good against the bad.

The fact is, if you compare the number of times violent incidents among buddhists occurred, versus the number of times buddhism has helped people, it is a staggering difference.

By far and by large Buddhism helps people, not harms them. No system is perfect, and every thought model, even nationalistic atheism (Think JOSEPH STALIN), will have violence now and again.

The question is, is the violence worth the gain? Is the gain worth the violence?

If you take away something that is 10% bad and 90% good, you have harmed mankind, and it is in fact you who are thoughtless and immoral.

And buddhism isn't even 10% bad. Those incidents are incredibly rare.

You are showing your short-sightedness, "Myth Buster"

Again, do you suffer from sickness? Pain in the body?

Not really. More often than not Buddhism brings peace and rest to the places it is a majority in.
It has it's failings, but for the most part, above and by LARGE, it is an exemplary human attempt to have peace with your fellow man, and with nature.
It's easy to pull out one of the few times it's failed go "See! Worthless!"
That's like me pointing out one of the few times someone's tap water blew in some pipe-rust or other filth and I would go "See, unclean!" and argue against people's homes having running water.
It's insane, and it's an error of reasoning called an 'association fallacy'.

<quoted text>You're an idiot. to have a lack of belief in deities you first have to know what deities are. For example: If a person has a lack of belief in ghosts they first much know what a ghost is. A baby can't be born atheist because they are not born with the knowledge of what deities are. Atheism is a choice.
So?

When ignoring context, everything has contradictions/inconsistencies .
It's when you include the context and then still find contradictions and inconsistencies, then you know something is very wrong.
A christian would claim that context and "correct interpretation" are the magic pills too.

I am not qualified to decide that, I am only one person.

"Do no harm" is what I would say, as vague as that sounds.

"Do no harm to others, but all things are lawful done unto one's self."

Now I suppose "harm" would have to be defined. And I would define harm as anything that causes pain or damage to people.

But that is so subjective. A christian claims to be harmed just by seeing atheist adverts in the city - yet, clearly, nobody should be protected from that kind of "harm".

I'll repeat myself: I am not qualified to decide what we should have. It has to be a joint venture by mankind as a whole, and not the whims of a select few.

The Bible? A science book? Lol. The Bible is a religious, social, and historical chronicle of God's work in the lives of a specific group of people during a specific period of history.
Oh, and Christians are still burning people at the stake. Just FYI.
Indeed they are. I was talking about the "modern world."

Yes, I know this bible isn't a science book. Do you deny that people used to look to it for answers to scientific questions and consider it the final authority on such? Remember how upset everyone was over that whole issue of a heliocentric earth?

For the record, I hate Christianity.

In fact, I loathe all Abrahamic religions.

All 3 of them. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, need to die the death and never see the light of day again.

You would be hard pressed to find a MAJOR religion in ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY as foul as these three.

Just saying, so my stance can be made clear.

If you've never heard of ANY deity, you don't believe in all of them.
