No, it's not better.

In theory, Christianity may be better, but not in practice, since there are SO few of you so-called Christians who actually PRACTICE and ADHERE to the tenets of Christianity.

Honesty would also include admitting that men chose the contexts of the BIble and those tenets of belief.
Skipping over these key and accurate statements shows one to be dishonest.
I have not stated that God wrote the Bible.

Christian nation? Hardly. You should read my posts to the Redneck.
When 75% of a nation self identifies as being Christian,practicing or not,it is fair to say it is indeed a Christian nation. Thats not the same as claiming is a theocracy.
Anything else is simply playing semantic games.

Nope.
Humanist are better than Christians because they do good stuff because they want to.

Not for fear of punishment or hope of reward.

Why are we comparing christianity to humanism? By what metric can we decide that one moral system is better than another? By their followers fruits (to borrow a line from JC)? Should we compare the percentage of christians in jail to the percentage of humanists in jail? Moving on.

This is about the fact that christianity specifically instructs its followers to give without reservation to the poor, and most do not. You first tried to explain this away by asserting that humanists do not give to the poor (irrelevant), and now you are claiming that christianity is a better system because it instructs its followers to do something that they refuse to do.

WTF?

Explain why it is better to be commanded to do something rather than doing something of your own free will.

To me, doing something from your heart to help others is much better than it just being something demanded of me.

Describing a nation as ANY sort of religion IS the same as saying that nation is a theocracy.

You think otherwise?

When the majority of a nation self-identifies as being white, is it fair to say it is indeed a WHITE nation?

I don't think so.

I said "All theocracies are fascist dictatorships". What does that say about theocracies? And, by extension, what does it say about religion?
Nice attempt at a sidestep.
I said nothing about dictatorships having anything to do with religion.

Why are you asking me?

And RR may very well mock you for being literate.

People used to be admired for such a trait and for those who value literacy, education, proper spelling, grammar and punctuation, it is still an admirable trait.

But we have a whole new "bumper crop" of those such as RR who find those who care about how they express themselves to be deserving of derision.

WTF?
Before we can continue this discussion, you'll have to provide evidence for your assertion is that Christians "refuse" to give to the poor and that "most" do not give to the poor.

Otherwise I am gonna call bullshit on you.

Go.

And not only demanded of you, but demanded if one doesn't want to face fire and brimstone in the "afterlife".

ALL religions- and the religion of Christianity is NO exception at ALL- operate on instilling FEAR into believers.

Kinda like little kids being "afraid" that if they don't behave properly, Santa won't bring them any presents.
