    Do you kill everyone you don't accept?
    No but he supports the stoning of rape victims, and apperently it is ok as because "might makes right."

    You might as well be dividing by 0 here. Don't apply logic where it doesn't exist.

    Which Ayatollah are you referring to? Do you think others won;t take their places?
    The Iranians I know hate their government. They think it's backward, and they want to get rid of it. These are strong sentiments. The Persian people are very proud, intelligent, and surprisingly secular and modern. They'll do well for themselves once they have the right government.
    They weren't so "secular and modern"'when they crowded the streets to watch gays being hanged by lamposts, or rioted about cartoons and murdered over cartoons.
    But for now, what can they do? If you protest in America, you go home at the end of the day. If you protest in Iran, you "disappear."
    And that is becoming comm0nplace throughout the Muslim world. What can be done about it?

    The ayatollahs won't last another 5 years.
    Of course they will. Who is going to stop them?

    Cute... you can't analogise this situation to a rape but you can deflect dodge and try your hardest to the point where I support stoning rape victims.

    Looking sharp.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You forget the rules in this thread, jesus good, islam bad. You don't need to debate quote for quote. The Christian god is the only god.

    Catholics are against contraception as a matter of principle. I don't see how that makes him a bad person.

    A belief in itself does not make someone a bad person, it is when they act on that belief in a wreckless and dangerous way that makes them bad people.

    The simple fact is absetence only is just simply not reasonable in today's age. Blame it all on what you want, but unwanted pregnancies and STDs are something that need to be combated and contraception is the reasonable way.

    Unless you are going to start forcing people into abstenence (good luck) contraceptions are the most reasonable way to combat these things in today's time.

    I know many people that are turned off from Catholicism for the contraception reason. IMO, the whole reason Catholics have that in the religion is so that people will have babies and raise them as Catholics. It's a means to procreation for the religion.

    Fine, just makes Catholicism a bad religion. How's that?
