Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

<quoted text>No, it didn't. In fact, while I still belonged to a Pentecostal church I was going to voluntarily go to a retreat called Desert Springs Ministries to give up being gay, thinking it was the right thing to do, but my parents stepped in and sat me down and talked me out if it.

Again, you have no idea what you are talking about. You are dishonest and ignore the teachings of Jesus.
I like your parents. None of them have a clue what any of us have experienced, learnt and witnessed.

I like seeing more and more people stand up to the christian religion and its bleaters.

Robert_G._Ingersoll
After the war, he served as Illinois Attorney General. He was a prominent member of the Republican Party and, though he never held an elected position, he was nonetheless an active participant in politics. According to Robert Nisbet, Ingersoll was a "staunch conservative Republican."[6] His speech nominating James G. Blaine for the 1876 presidential election was unsuccessful, as Rutherford B. Hayes received the Republican nomination, but the speech itself, known as the "Plumed Knight" speech, was considered a model of political oratory.
Back when the Republicans were still a responsible, middle-of-the-road party.

You know: before Reagan sold it out to the Genuine Christholes™-- before all the insanity.

Today?

The ReThugs would have kicked Ingersoll out--- he **was** an atheist, after all.

Go Down Moses
Moses never existed, sorry.

He is 100% fictional, entirely made-up.

Nothing in actual **real** history supports the existence of Moses.

<quoted text>You are simply (I mean that both ways) being obstinate.

Most primitive cultures utilized slavery. As they develop, other methods of dealing with the situations are used. In fact, Christianity introduced that change.

You keep trying to condemn an ancient, defunct practice while excusing the murder of children for convenience. That's both depraved and perverted, not to mention hypocritical!
Who's excusing the murder of children for ANY reason.

You are a liar.

<quoted text>Your post reminds me of a joke.

Two sperms were swimming as fast as they could.

One of them said to the other, "I'm exhausted and don't know how much longer I can keep swimming. How much further to the fallopian tubes?"

The second sperm replied, "Keep swimming, pal, we have a long way to go. We barely just passed the tonsils."
Lol.

We pass our hats along your pews and under your pulpits and implore you for just one fact. We know all about your mouldy wonders and your stale miracles. We want a this year's fact. We ask only one. Give us one fact for charity. Your miracles are too ancient. The witnesses have been dead for nearly two thousand years." — Robert Green Ingersoll, "The Gods" (1872)
Yep. Atheist.

Today's ReThuglican party would have kicked him out... just for that, alone.

But also because Intersoll told the actual truth....

Um, no. In fact in the New Testament Paul reiterated slavery as a legitimate institution by declaring that slaves should be obedient to their masters.
"Most primitive cultures utilized slavery."
So? Was God afraid of offending them by declaring slavery immoral? Was God more concerned about shrimp and whether people wore cloth woven from cotton and wool?
Is it ignorance or deceit?

What about Philemon?

What about acquiring freedom if possible?

Why is it Christianity that is still alone in the fight against slavery?

Even if you censor the issue to avoid sacrificing children, atheists are no where to be found in stopping human trafficking right now.

Hypocrite.

Sure you have. You are on here harping about ancient slavery while you ignore both slavery and child sacrifice occurring right now.

The hypocrite is you.

You whine about ancient slavery by only one of many cultures that practiced it, and ignore millions of convenience abortions happening right now.

Would you like a song about slave liberation by people from the Old Testament? You don't know the Bible.
