By a little thing called education you dim moron.
Not that I expect you to comprehend the word education
People "educated" in barbarism were "educated".

"Education" is neither a positive or negative until you qualify it.

You are educated in your religion. It washed your brain.

What is "proper" thinking?
Here's a sample of what Christinemc^2 means by proper thinking:

"His evolutionary racism; his call to the German people for racial purity and unflinching
devotion to a “just” state; his belief that harsh, inexorable laws of evolution ruled human
civilization and nature alike, conferring upon favored races the right to dominate others; the
irrational mysticism that had always stood in strange communion with his grave words about
objective science—all contributed to the rise of Nazism."

Ehm, nope, guesses based on bronze age ignorance, fallacy and mythology prove nothing.

Actually yes, US PEOPLE can answer that and have been answering that since it’s discovery. What is the problem here is that YOU PEOPLE ignore the facts

Actually I can prove (much to the consternation of certain godbots on here) that the god described in KJV, revelation 19:6 cannot exist in this universe at the same time as you so where does that leave you?

However there is the point that once again, those certain YOU PEOPLE ignore the facts and pretend that it will all go away if they ignore it hard enough

Seems to me that you have a faith built on ignorance but hey, you are welcome to it

I didn't blow it off, I scrolled past because it was a response to Buck, not me.
But you said the same biased, hateful and prejudiced kind of answer.
"Or maybe it's because churches, preachers, and Christians call AIDS their god's revenge"
You didn't answer my question, you ranted about a small percentage of extremist Christians. They do not represent the whole of Christianity but you pretend that they do.
That is bigotry, IANS. I just want you to acknowledge that.
How 'bout this one.

Gays think the christian church hates them because they espouse the doctrine that homosexuality is a grave sin, punishable eternally, when all other sins are matters of choice, while the person who is gay was likely born gay, and that is no different than being punished eternally for being born with a deformed limb.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
Really? Let's look. Unless you want me to just make them up, I'll have to cut and paste those scriptures, something you seemed to object to in a recent post.
I did not say I object to you copy and pasting, I said you copy and pasted Scripture you don't understand.
[1] "The fool says in his heart,'There is no God.' They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good" - Psalm 14:1
[2] "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." - Revelation 21:8
[3]“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”- 2 Corinthians 6:14
[4] Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ." - 1 John 2:22
That one heckuva warning.
I know, right?
Most of it not written to unbelievers, but about them, so I'm not sure how it constitutes a warning, especially if they need to wait for a bible scholar to come along to interpret it. What if it's all allegory and metaphor?
You are an unbeliever and you've read it.

Imagine that.
This "warning" also manages to call us unbelievers lying, corrupt, vile, abominable, godless vessels in the service of evil, not one of which does any good, and fit to be burned alive forever as the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers.
It doesn't say that.

You're exaggerating.

Look up, you posted the Scripture.

See what I mean about not understanding?
You don't see any bigotry - any prejudiced intolerance - there, do you?
Ya, I do.
But you did see bigotry against Christianity for suggesting that it is homophobic.
I see that, too.

It seems you don't.

You see all Christians as one being, what one Christian does, all Christians do.
