So I take it, you're not the sort to whine about the ten commandments not being hung in court rooms?  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138600)

I have heard it a thousand times. You are telling no one anything new. Not sure why you feel this is your task in life?  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138599)

I have no doubt that is what your barbaric, immoral book says. Probably how I know it is a lie. You can believe that insane crap if you wish, I'm not buying it for a second. You have said nothing to convince me it is true.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138598)

A much more relevant document would be the treaty of Tripoli, which states America is not founded upon the Christian religion. This was unanimously passed by congress and signed by many founding fathers. Our countries secular principles are not based upon Christian ideals. This is why we do not torture due to religious belief.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138597)

The Mayflower was long before the nation of America. The principles of the USA are extremely different than that of the few fundamentalist on that boat. Name a Christian principle that is an American principle?  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138595)

I know the bible claims Jesus said it. And I do not believe Jesus knows any more than I do. I have no reason to believe him, the bible, or you. None of you have credibility.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138593)

Name a Christian principle this nation was founded upon? And thanks for telling us why your education was lacking.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138572)

I understand this is the interpretation of many Christians........ . today. Obviously Christians killed for religious purposes for a good thousand years or so after the Jesus. . It does not take away from the fact, your superstition is based upon killing the opposition on religious purposes. Your religion would not exist without such immoral practices, your god supposedly wanted. I must say though, I am glad Christians do not follow all the laws of the bible. Ironically I keep hearing Christians say we should take an eye for an eye, instead of turning the other cheek.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138571)

Do you actually feel we will suddenly believe your fire and brimstone bit? We believe what you say about as much as you believe the Koran, or actually much less, as you surely believe many things the Koran says.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138566)

I am well aware of the ideas of your superstition. Again, I find such an idea as highly irrational. It is as irrational to say one must believe Mohammed is the true prophet or be tortured. Torture is wrong. Punishing someone for a religious belief is immoral. Probably why it is considered a hate crime in America. In essence, American law considers the idea you claim of your god as a hate crime.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138565)

I know more about the bible than I could fit in this post. I know it was written by men or about men with motives. Many of them were brutal leaders who had armies that killed women and children and or enslaved them. These men used fire and brimstone talk to scare their citizens into obedience of them. I know many people were raised from children to believe these scare tactics are a reality. You are clearly one of them. I have no reason to accept the stories of the bible as any real truths. I do not believe a hell exists, and you cannot show a shred of evidence it exists, much less is eternal. I feel it would not be rational to punish a person for not believing in something that has zero evidence. So the entire idea behind this fire and brimstone is irrational, and immoral.  (Tuesday Dec 16 | post #138564)
