"The same thing?" Hardly.
I have read many of your posts; I'd be more inclined to compare *you* to viking in your rabid and hateful accusations.
I don't care what you think of me. You have just proved your self to be a moron at best, a liar at worst.

Please continue to kiss Kate's ass. If she were a 'Christian' you would be bashing her. You are a biased hypocrite.

I'm not a Christian and Kate is as much a troll as Viking.
Because she's a strong-willed woman who beat you at your own game? I know this is way off-topic, but the more I read of you, the less I like you.

To those of you who may be reading along and want to escape the shackles that your forebears inadvertently placed on your psyche. Their are many resources you can use to help break free from Christianity.

My personal favorite is The Clergy Project.

The purpose of The Clergy Project is to provide a safe haven for active and former clergy who do not hold the supernatural beliefs of their religious traditions.

http://www.clergyproject.org/

A fantastic resource for those who were never clergy is the Recovering from Religion Foundation.

If you are one of the many people who have determined that religion no longer has a place in their life, but are still dealing with the after-effects in some way or another, Recovering From Religion (RR) may be just the right spot for you. Many people come to a point that they no longer accept the supernatural explanations for the world around them, or they realize just how much conflict religious belief creates. It can be difficult to leave religion because family and culture put so much pressure on us to stay and pretend to believe the unbelievable. If this is you, we want to help you find your way out. Don't let people convince you that you just didn't have 'enough' faith, or that you just haven't found the "right" religion.

http://www.recoveringfromreligion.org/pages/h...

A forum for those who have walked away from Fundamentalism.

Viking is a fundamentalist Fred Phelps type of born-again christian who values self-righteous hate in the name of his god above all else. He goes as far as to falsify posts from other people here just so he can have something to knock down.

Much the same way I've read "G_O_D's" lies about Kaitlin.

Why would you react in this way? What do you hope to gain by lashing out in anger on the internet?

Addendum:

Pretty hateful for someone who claims, as you do, to "love Jesus." I think you're a lot closer to viking than KTWW.
Yup, you're a moron and a liar. You are using the "your a hater" crap just like the fundies do.

I'm not going anywhere. There are too many clowns like you to watch make asses of themselves on both sides. Better than Comedy Central.

This has the appearance of a downhill slide.

I didn't imply that you had taken a "side". My point is that between "believers" and "non-believers" here there is an equal amount of "side taking", trolling and some excellent dialogue and information.

I have no problem when trolls on both sides hate me or intelligent people on both sides discuss things. There is a lot of "Well they are being an ass but agree with me so I'll keep quiet" going on. It is the latter I find most dishonorable of anyone.

My comment was directed at Kate, not you. Why are you shoving your nose in something you claim to have no stake in ?

Yes, my comment was pettey. It was constrained though based on the contempt I have for Kate's constant vile trolling and dishonesty.

DearthofCouth bought this to the table on page 20052 post 423999. His bio is on page 1.''raised from infancy by deeply religious people, surrounded by a family full of Baptists preachers, deacons and missionaries.
His people did not kill him.
He should know what Christianity is all about. He is not ignorant. Here is an interesting quote from post 3.
Dearth.''Wielded to power of language. I was able to wound someone deeply with a well timed and chosen, derisive remark.''
Not much has changed.
You have strayed deeply into the woods of obfuscation. Back to the original question, not posed by me, and not answered by you or anyone else.

Many Christians believe that we live in "a reprobate and Cananite world"*.

Many Christians believe in the automatic salvation of infants and small children.*

Other than the sacrifice of not getting into Heaven themselves, and parents sacrifice for their children al the time, why is the murder of children before the age of majority, before they lose their automatic salvation, before they are influenced by the reprobate and Cananite world not the ultimate gift to give to a child?

* This quote and this belief taken directly from professional Apologist William Lane Craig.

+ Disclaimer: I am not advocating for this, but, if you take the beliefs of a fair number of Christians and distill them down to their very basics, it seems like the perfect sacrifice and the ultimate gift. The only logical conclusion is that the parents that embrace this dogma do to have the ultimate faith they profess to have.

I didn't say that you did. I wanted to ensure that you knew I don't believe there are sides and that I do not have a side. We are all humans. Why do you put so much stock in the motivations of others or what their online behavior is? Why are you concerned if you appear intelligent? Why would anyone hate you? This seems like much ado about nothing.

If you don't care what I, or others for that matter, think of you, why did you feel it necessary to post what you claimed to be your credentials on this thread? Your insecurity is showing. You -need- validation from others--and those who don't give it to you, you label as "morons and liars." How typically christian.

I rather like her; she's a hoot and a half. She kind of reminds me of myself when I was a political trouble maker back in the late 1960s and early 1970s.-You- remind me of Tammy Fae Bakker.

Did one of your divine visions tell you that, "God?" Do you really believe you know what's inside of the minds of others? What made you choose your user name, anyway? Do you really suffer from a god complex? Because you certainly do act like it.

There are a number of christians here whom I don't bash. Skom, Grace, No Stress.... Are you feeling persecuted,'God?'

It's easy for a lying pseudo-christian like you to accuse others of hypocrisy and bias.

The more I read your posts, the more I am convinced that you are a 2 year old sock of Kate.

You are getting more like a fundie troll with every post.

I was under the impression that this was an unfettered area of idea exchanges. How old are you? I just don't understand all this unnecessary pettiness. I will comment on what I choose to comment on, however, no matter what your alias. Your bullying tactics are wasted here.

What do you hope to gain by replying me over someone you claim not to know ?

I am getting the feeling you are a sockpuppet.

Let's see, Kate says goodnye and two posters magically appear to defend her.

You will slip up soon.$100 says those who kissed her ass will deny it.

Friggin game players and clowns on both sides. Pretty pathetic.
