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.
Again with the sides. OK.

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.

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.
I had an associate like that once. He still available himself of the many easily influenced female parishioners that he can while he preaches piety. Fortunately, they were all of a certain age and not illegal. I would not have hesitated to pit an end to such activities. Now, he laughs all the way to the boudoir and the bank. The rampant hypocrisy among my peers was the first sign that what I was providing was nothing more than thin air at a cost, a major cost to the people I was allegedly charged with helping.

Whom did I defend? I asked you why you were so angry. You have now responded with further anger and baseless accusations. I did nothing to deserve this from you. I have never had a conversation with anyone named Kate. Your paranoia is confusing me. How would one collect on a Topix bet? What is with this sides thing? The way you lash out, do you have a side? A side of one? Is there any way to steer this conversation back to those who are no longer Christian from those who seemingly have a vendetta?

You read more like viking with every post; petulant, flatulent, abhorrent.

You don't like having your obvious traits pointed out, do you? Have you ever considered trying a little self-improvement?

You -do- have a god complex; you think everyone is supposed to believe, love, admire and respect you. Your desperate need for validation even drove you to post your alleged credentials. You're a legend in your own mind.

Right; you have staked out your pile of crap, and you will staunchly defend it. Bully for you.

Your Lilliputian intellect is...well, self-describing.

We are all humans. Why do you desire to fit us into little boxes and what is your intent at lashing out at me. I wanted to discuss why I left Christianity. What is your quest? Unless you deign to answer with something rational, I may just let out a final chuckle at you and scroll past your tantrums.

i asked you why you were so angry on the Internet. Specific personalities, other than yours, were not involved. You are quite the curious character. Have you considered perhaps meeting with a counselor to discuss why you would lash out at strangers on the Internet?

Well, I guess I have been berated and accused enough for one evening for simply trying to direct the conversation to the title of the thread. Goodnight and don't go to bed angry.

Actually, you're right. I really should address the issue of "Why I'm No Longer A Christian."

Wellsir, my mom wanted me to become a Catholic and my dad wanted me to be a Mormon. I'm no longer a christian of -any- persuasion because when I was fifteen I read the Bible for myself. Between the self-contradictions, blood and gore of the OT and the war-mongering, bs and self-contradictions of the NT, I pretty much threw the whole thing out, and later turned to Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. The candles, incense and chanting all aid in meditation and relaxation. And the weed my friends and I smoked on the way to the local meetings was nice, too.

Whatever happened to the ten dollar lid?(sad sigh)

Note the increased hostilitly toward someone who wasn't even hostile toward you; very, very christian.
G_O_D wrote:
<quoted text>Yes, my comment was pettey. It was constrained though based on the contempt I have for Kate's constant vile trolling and dishonesty.
If there's anyone here who's dishonest, it's you. I read your post to her where you told her that you knew her family's strega traditions better than she did.

You read more like viking with every post.

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.
Apparently he needs validation. Insecure christians are like that. Maybe he should become an ex-christian, and purge all that need for validation.

I would honestly like to know how a rational discussion starts with an irrational stance? Could any of you involved explain to me how is it thinking clearly to state that the logical outcome of Christianity, is killing our children at birth to keep them from harm? Someone even saw fit to question hickup for being a literalist…. No matter how I try to look at this discussion, it simply reads extreme to me.
the logic follows the christians claims.

One must believe in the god, to obtain eternal bliss, minor children are not capable of honest belief, so the apologists invented an exception for children, if they die before they attain the age of reason/responsibility, they are granted eternal bliss.

The question to ask is: do christians believe (have faith) in the system they advance? If they do, then they should kill their children before the children are mature enough to sin. Doing so would guarantee the child's way to heaven, and would cost the parent nothing, because they would merely pray for forgiveness.

It can be observed that the christians do not kill their children (often), from this we may conclude, that : either they do not believe in their holy book, or they do not love their children.

The reaction is of aghast, but that is morally wrong! But this reaction lacks explanation and credibility.

and

when did immorality ever bother a christian

you should read their book sometime.
