    You never started with a specific example, only someone being murdered for not believing. How on earth do you see that as an inappropriate comment?

    Or being murdered by that religion for not believing in that "reality", which was the modus operandi for montheism since it's inception..............

    Of course I am. You do still recognize that I could not get away with any such statement as a historian, right?

    And I as an historian I see the problem as the continued miscategorization of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism as "religions" when they would be better classified as "Diseases of the Mind".........................

    I don't remember saying otherwise but he actually fits in pretty well with modern liberalism...

Peta has issues with any god that would kill so many animals, regardless of the issue. The old testament is just that...old and out dated. But it's the word of god, and therefor, infalible, which is the stance the Catholic church has taken, more so than the other judeo christian denominations. It's why Martin Luther left in the first place.
    You got to be kidding me Martin Luther eventually broke away from the Catholic Church because it was adding things like the sale indulgences for sins and "holy" artifacts for people in purgatory. Martin Luther was more conservative than the Vatican.
