To reiterate: If a "non-believer" burned someone at the stake for witchcraft, they wouldn't be a non-believer, would they?
Since burning witches was exclusively a christian practice, well.... Hey,*you* do the math.

It depends on who's defining the "true" christian. I imagine there are a number of "true" christians on this thread alone who say *you* aren't a "true" christian.

The ban on decapitation and head shrinking probably lead them to another alternative for "controlling/destroying the evil spirits".
Burning people alive is not a Christian invention.
Are there any pre-Burning Times examples? I don't know of any. Are there any *other* religions that threaten non-believers and other "sinners" with burning--eternal or otherwise? I don't think there are any Buddhists or Mithraists who believe in it or practiced it.

It's all a matter of belief--that's the driving force.

During the Burning Times, not only were innocent people burned alive, but so were their pets, their livestock, and sometimes even their children. The people who carried out these atrocities were absolutely, irrevocably convinced that they were doing "the Lord's" will, and if they were alive today there is no way in hell that you could convince them otherwise. They would probably burn you, too, and then praise jesus.

That is the insanity of christianity.

Almost forgot: there isn't any "heaven." That's just your belief--like the people who believed that as christians they had to burn witches for their god.

From that website:

"What is Suite101?"

"Suite101 is a new kind of knowledgebase centered on personal experience and passionate interest. We bring together people who thrive on sharing what they've been through, what they know, what they care about.

"More focused than a forum, more dynamic than an encyclopedia, Suite101 is all about weaving real experiences into knowledge. Here your interests determine the structure and every contribution is an opportunity to connect Ė a personal, guided entry point into any subject.

"Our goal is to help build a freer, more cooperative internet by creating an environment that encourages the exchange of ideas."

For all I know, this could be a religious website that doesn't want to admit it's a religious website.

Also, it is difficult to know what a "witch" was in ancinet Rome, since "witch" is an English word.

That's really convenient. Disingenuous, but handy don't you think?

Anything done that's a positive reflection upon Christianity, even if it's done by the most dastardly person, is considered a "real Christian", and is held up as an example of what Christianity can do.

If it's something awful or horrendous, but done by a shining example of what it means to be a Christian(he was a good deacon, a good Christian father, charitable etc...), then that person will be reviled and said to not be a "real Christian".

So it works out(in your mind), that only good things can be done by a Christian, and they are a "real Christian".

You drop all other Christians - "not real Christians" - off on the door step of someone else. You place the blame or responsibility or the image it presents and reflects - upon your religion - elsewhere.



If a person says they are a Christian, they are. That's my litmus, whether they present a positive or negative image, it doesn't matter.

They are a real Christian.

Also, age old practices of Native Tribes throughout the world have very little to do with Christianity.
Pre-christian societies generally treated "magicians and sorcerers"--in other words, herbalists, midwives and healers--pretty decently, since their lives depended on them. It was in the early christian world where the torture and execution of accused "witches"--threats to the christian state--became popular.

You have a serious problem. First, it's when you open your mouth. Do you think before you speak? You are making a fool out of yourself. Even G_O_D_ told you to let it go...

If I ever chose not to be a christian, I sure wouldn't want your life style. It's an angry one.

I must really get to you... Now go sleep it off.
Posting with you wasted 3 minutes of my time, that I will not get back.
