Well many politicians just vote for their side of the isle. If the religious right insists they vote a certain way, they will probably do it so they will be reelected. They invoke the god of choice for votes.  (Yesterday | post #137256)

As long as I have been on this thread, I have yet to hear from a single liberal Christian who was on the side of having bible study in public schools.  (Saturday | post #137243)

Kudos to you for calling out the hypocrisy and uncalled for violent words of this guy. Obviously he is not going to take us atheists seriously. Just as it was of 9/11, the Muslims should have called out the act harshly. Sadly only a few did.  (Saturday | post #137242)

The bible would be put to good use in anthropology, but only when used comparatively, not when studied on its own. And if government were to do this in public schools, most Christians would be in an uproar, as it would surely show the bible as condoning immoral behavior. But I would obviously be all for comparative studies of holy books in an anthropological manner.  (Friday Sep 19 | post #137229)

Yet you show a want of violence against those you do not agree with based upon your religion. If you acted upon this, you could be charged with a hate crime, which carries a much higher penalty than what you are surely accustomed. You see, the constitution does not protect your religious beliefs if they harm others. Freedom from religion.  (Friday Sep 19 | post #137227)

Using holy book quotes to justify your violent intent is different than what Isis is doing, how? Thank you so much for proving a point I have been making for sometime on this thread. So sad Curious is in jail and cannot be witness to this.  (Friday Sep 19 | post #137226)

You say this as if you see things differently than you wish to see them. This is a forum for verbal debate, if you cannot handle it, why are you here? If you wish to hit humans, then take up boxing and do some competition. Otherwise you are just a criminal.  (Friday Sep 19 | post #137224)

Yes, if they insist it is all about a choice, then they must have made a choice. Thus they must have been bi sexual. Probably why so many who rail against homosexuality keep getting caught doing homosexual acts.  (Friday Sep 19 | post #137222)

P,G. spoke to the religion in question on this thread. No Muslims are on this thread, and I have yet to hear from one the entire time I have been on this thread. P G mentioned the heaven and hell as one small part of his statement. Most of his statement would not apply to Muslims or Jews. So I feel your giant leap of an assumption is not based on good evidence. Most atheists do not favor Muslims over Christians. Most atheists do not wish for holy books of any sort to be taught in public schools. Your assumption defies the norm. Now to your charge of atheism being a religion. By your logic, you are claiming any like minded people who evangelize for their cause to be a religion. This would mean Greenpeace or Amway is a religion, and that is just a poor use of language. It is disingenuous. Just because things have similarities, does not mean they should be categorized the exact same. The many differences between atheism and the religious are the reasons we should not use the same terms to categorize them. Atheists worship no beings. We have no holy books that we feel are infallible. We have no connecting rituals. We do not have dogmatic philosophies.  (Wednesday Sep 17 | post #137186)

And who cares if it is off topic? It is an interesting discussion, and that is good enough for me. And I just read Yiago's response to your statement and I agree with him.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #137175)

Well I am not the one insisting belief is of religion, that would be Q. And I am not really disagreeing with you, I just think the belief in evolution and the belief in gods are not equivalent in any manner. Evolution will always have some gaps of evidence. Religion has no gaps of evidence because there is zero evidence in which to have a gap. It is all conjecture. It is all speculation. It is all guesswork. It has zero foundation of knowns.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #137174)

As of right now, you are the biggest hater on this thread. Typical Christian hypocrisy.  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #137173)

Well the bible claims god love everyone, no matter if they break rules of the bible or not, so why would a homosexual fear not being loved by this supposed god? Maybe you do need some bible study, as you do not seem to know what the god is supposedly saying. Fact is, you are making a claim you cannot know if it has any truth to it. And that would be you sinning according the bible, as you are bearing false witness. Would that mean god does not love you? Of course I do not see homosexuality as a sin or bad, as it is not a transgression upon others. It is not forced upon you, so what's the big deal?  (Tuesday Sep 16 | post #137172)
