    No they're not. That was a satirical website.

    As for saving people from eternal damnation, that concept amuses me. that implies that you have the power to do such a thing. That you even know that eternal damnation exists. It further amuses me that most Christians think Hell is a location where you are tortured for all eternity.

    What I find most hilarious, is the web site in the OP; it's a gay Christian web site. That's like priests, "selling drugs for Jesus". I can see it now, "Take a hit for the Holy Ghost".
    Or someone could do some critical thinking and come to the realization that an omnipotent and omnipresent being probably does not give two ****s if a an loves a man.

    Whoa, slow down, it's not, "my", holy book. Alls I'm saying, is that if you believe what the Bible says, homosexuality is a sin.

    You're condemning folks for their religious beliefs and no, you don't have that right. Religious freedom is a civil right and condemnation of their beliefs is a violation of tyheir civil rights.

    I really am, by the way.
    I'm both a dyke and a Christian and whilst I'd simply love to stay and play and hear all about how that's simply not at all possible, I've got to run now---my Sweetie's not feeling well and I need to go check on her.

    Y'all have fun, I'll be back as soon as I can!
    Good for you, sister! More power to ya. I'm all about people having their own faith and believing what they wish.

    See, I'm a Conservative and I don't believe that my views should be forced upon anyone else.

    That's why I have to wonder why Libbos get all up tight about Bible-beaters.

    Ummm no, condemnation of a religion is freedom of speech. I have EVERY right to condemn and/or criticize whatever religion I want to.

    Freedom of religion does not mean that religion cannot be criticized or condemned.

    If you don't believe it, then you don't believe it and that's ok, but, Christians believe in all that. It's not for you to insult them for it. You don't have the right to take away their rights.

    Just like racism would be freedom of speech?

    When did I insult Christians? All I said was that it amuses me that a lot of them miss the entire concept of hell and view it as a location rather than a state of being.

    You don't have the right to take away their rights.
    When did I say I wanted to take away their rights?

    If someone says they hate blacks, that is not illegal. Acting on the hate to do an act may be illegal depending on the act.

    Again, criticizing or condemning something is not illegal in the U.S.. Nor should it be.
