Being a vocal Atheist in a Islam country is dangerous. Life expectancy is only a few days in these countries. If they let you live your existence will be miserable. You can be locked away and tortured until a complete conversion takes place.
Atheism is not a welcome belief in many of these places and freedom is not accepted. I embrace freedom and want people to live and be free. If you don’t have a choice you don’t have freedom.
So many of our militant Atheist are just like the Islam countries. They want freedom of choice removed from people’s life. And if they had their way Christians would be murdered and or imprisoned.
I for one believe in separation of Church and State. I really do but that doesn’t mean separation of one’s rights to believe and worship our One True God. Individuals rights to freedom of religion must not be abridged, ever.
Funny how that "One True God" aligns with your belief system. With over one million gods, tens of thousands of religions, and over 40,000 sects and schisms (and growing) in Christianity, this "One True God" thing is an utter joke.

Christians are a self-worshiping Army of One whose god is a reflection of their own ego. The Religion of Me! God loves Me! Who's going to Heaven? Me! Who knows the a"One True God"? Me! And anyone who doesn't agree with Me! Is a godless, heretic scum who will either burn or perish or whatever your ridiculous schism claims happens to anyone who doesn't agree with Me!

Religions love to control sexuality as it is so basic to our nature. There is nothing immoral about consensual sex.

There are 40,000 sects and schisms in Christianity and countless versions of the New Testament. It is impossible to get two Christians of different churches to agree on even simple Scripture. Each of your Army of One Religion of Me! Claims the other is wrong and guilty of misinterpretation. The only logical conclusion is that is all non-evidential nonsense and so ridiculously vague as to be laughable.

This means you have a biased substandard flawed interpretation that you promote as the truth. When in fact you deny the Amplified version because it explains even more clearly the KJV.
This is what we see all the time. Atheist deliberately misinterpretation scripture. Because if the truth be known Atheist are weak and insecure in their belief. And Atheist feel the need to discredit the bible by making false interpretations, taking scripture out of context, leaving out conjunctions.
If you are so right why revert to these callow interpretations?
Prove your interpretations are any less callow. I'll wait. 40,000 sects and schisms of Christianity and countless Bible versions, and billions of interpretations of individual Christians in gods modeled after themselves point to general callowness and utter nonsense. Why should I believe you over any other Christian? When was the last time Dear Leader disagreed with you?

Well, to be fair one would have to extrapolate what percentage from each population rather than the overall population, but even then, what is the point? There is no causal link between homosexuality and pedophilia. It's just another attempt to demonize people.
The last numbers I saw quoted was 47% was family and up to 74% family and family friends. People the child knows.

Yep. The stats are very detailed, I only posted the general worldwide consensus.

I've posted them in detail before, waste of time, people can check for themselves anyhow.

OK, so you say the interpretation is flawed. Prove it. Sounds to me like you just don't like what it says. And I would not blame you for that either. I think it's ridiculous too. Paul even rationalizes why women must give birth to be saved. So it's not just a misquote.
I gave you the Amplified version three times already. It's easy to understand what the scripture means.

Is there anything in the Old Testament -- in history, in theory, in law, in government, in morality, in science -- above and beyond the ideas, the beliefs, the customs and prejudices of its authors and the people among whom they lived?
Is there one ray of light from any supernatural source?

The ancient Hebrews believed that this earth was the center of the universe, and that the sun, moon and stars were specks in the sky.
With this the Bible agrees.

They thought the earth was flat, with four corners; that the sky, the firmament, was solid -- the floor of Jehovah's house.
The Bible teaches the same.

They imagined that the sun journeyed about the earth, and that by stopping the sun the day could be lengthened.
The Bible agrees with this.

They believed that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman; that they had been created but a few years before, and that they, the Hebrews, were their direct descendants.
This the Bible teaches.

If anything is, or can be, certain, the writers of the Bible were mistaken about creation, astronomy, geology; about the causes of phenomena, the origin of evil and the cause of death.

Now, it must be admitted that if an infinite Being is the author of the Bible, he knew all sciences, all facts, and could not have made a mistake.

and the author is?
