    what a load of crap.

    You should be free to call Homosexuality a sin, Christanity a hateful religion and Islam a religion of virgin sucidal worshippers. Not to mention all kinds of other crap.

    Of course you should.

    And you are free to do so in the US.

    This is NOT a story from the US.

    Re: Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin

    I kinda see this as ironic. Didn't christians settle america to flee from religious persecution, specifically from UK?

    This really shouldn't surprise anyone. UK has been haten' on christians that actually read the bible themselves for centuries now. Hell, the UK has been silently hating on their own state-church. They are not a bastion of freedom in europe, even if some of their citizens like to claim it is.

    You should be free to do it anywhere on the globe.

    It's what we call a "human right", a product of universal morality.

    While the moral relativist must concede that stoning women for being raped is acceptable if that's what that society wants, the moral universalist understands that there is a basic human decency which all humans should be held to, that rape is always wrong and so is oppressing free speech and ideas.

    It doesn't matter what country this story is in, in fact if we were 200 years in the future it wouldn't matter if this story were taking place on a space station, martian settlement or whatever. Free speech is a basic human right and it should be defended to the death.

    If you follow ALL of the tenets, you are Christian.
    If not, you are not. Its really that simple.

    then why ain't you invading the UK or Australia to fight for free speech, we're sorely lacking it here in Oz, come and stand up for this universal human right for us.

    All a moral universalist is is a moral relativist who has fooled themselves into thinking that their morals are absolute and apply to every person and every culture. You are still a relativist and had you been born into a different culture you would have different beliefs and different morals. The only difference is you hold every culture to the same standard that you hold yourself. That is neither good nor bad. It is simply how you choose to view the world.

    Why? Conversion of others to the faith is a way to grow said faith, and a way to save souls thru converting peopel to your religion. Seems pretty natural to me. One of the means to that end is to put your beliefs out in public for people to hear, so that they might want to become involved.

    They lack the faith that it is THE faith and hence indulge in proselytising in order to convince themselves...
    This is unsupportable and is nothing but a lackluster attempt to bash those that do such things.

    You are so full of yourself. You refuse to list the tenets of Christianity, therefore I doubt you even know them.

    I will state this clearly.

    The only tenet of Christianity is the belief that Jesus is the son of God and the Messiah.

    There is no equivocation in that statement. Prove me wrong that there is any other tenet necessary to being a Christian.
