Gay Marriage - Rome, GA

Zoom in on the map. It shows that pretty much all of the states support gay marriage. As far as total mileage goes, it is mostly a grey map. The major population centers are pink. The reality is, the majority of Americans support gay marriage. If you do not, welcome to the minority opinion. I would suggest taking some time to figure out why you are there.  (Jan 21, 2012 | post #20)

I'm sorry, but when the acts of an individual, regardless of the color of his skin, lead you to commit to the intellectual degradation of an entire race, then YOU are a part of the problem. Judge the individuals by their actions, and leave race out of it. It's not so hard. In fact, if I followed your own philosophy, I might believe all white people to be small minded, racist, bigots. But I'm sure we are not.  (Jan 12, 2012 | post #32)

Rome GA ATHEISTS

The fact that they have been fought for, and died over, is exactly the folly of religion. Especially Christianity. While presently we have a much larger issue with violence with Islam, Christianity had it's heyday as well. NO-ONE ought to fight or kill over the Ten Commandments, especially after the redemption of the New Testament. The teachings of Jesus trump the Commandments, and those teachings were of love and compassion. The whole entire point of the Christian religion is to follow the teachings of Christ. His death, crucifixion, and resurrection absolving humanity from it's prior, and later, sins. The irony is, if Christians actually followed the teachings of Christ, non-Christians would never be so repulsed by them. "Love thy nieghbor as thy brother", "Turn the other cheek", "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her". The very sins that were absolved were those laid out in the Ten Commandments that the ancients were to atone for with animal blood. Hence the term "substitution ary atonement" regarding the sacrifice of Christ.  (Dec 30, 2011 | post #22)

Rome GA ATHEISTS

Eternal pain is not consistant with the notion of a benevolent god. Not to say there is not some eternal place you can go if you reject god. I like C.S. Lewis's idea of "hell" in "The Great Divorce". It is an idea that hell is a choice that can be made when one's own choices incrementally lead them down a path of rejection and refusal of god. It also allows that even a self condemned soul could choose to accept god while in that state, and that god would wholly accept that soul into "heaven" . If the soul is eternal, I would posit that god's love is "more" eternal. Standards are all well and good, as long as you realize that your standards are simply the teachings and reality that you have come by. Others experiences are quite different, and the assumption that yours is the only way to communicate with an all powerful creator of the universe, I think, is narrow-minded, arrogant, and blind.  (Dec 30, 2011 | post #21)

What's the difference between calling someone stupid and calling someone a moron? See? Now that is the hypocrisy I'm talking about. See you in church?  (Dec 30, 2011 | post #20)

SK- Touche. I do not intend to condemn religion or the religious as whole, or even the upholding of some moral standards by our society. What I condemn are those that belong to a certain brand of religious zealousness that is judgemental and hypocritical. I call these people heretics, because they act contrary to the teachings of their religion while pretending to uphold their religion. The Christian religion in general is a teaching of love and grace towards others. I wish that it were followed more often.  (Dec 29, 2011 | post #12)
