This list is not comprehensive.

    Now, in which threads should I have happened to mention all that?

    So, we should just let our fellow man go down to perdition and not try to turn them back to righteousness and salvation? Have you never read the Bible? Try reading Ezekiel chapter 33.

    I think you fail to understand the notion of faith.

    Tell me, what makes Christianity absolutely correct over say, Hinduism? Or Shinto? How do you know YOUR interpretation of YOUR religion is the correct one?

    How do you know that your attempt to save people doesn't actually damn them?

    Nonsense.
    On the contrary, Creationists are some of the most dishonest people on this forum.

    My sex life is none of your damned business. Nor is yours any of my concern.

    Wow.

    I don't post in the same places you do, but that's not been my experience, by and large, at all.

    When you have religious folk saying Iraq in 2007 was butterflies and rainbows before Obama, creationists outright lying about known scientific events, you tend not to view overly religious people well.

    There was this one creationist on another forum. He was the worst person I've ever met online. If you disagreed with him on anything, he'd condemn you to Hell, saying you'd be tortured forever.

    I agree with Turtledude, whiskey is like religion, all in moderation.

    When you have no solid empirical evidence, you have blind faith.

    Any bad things that so-called Christians have done are violations of the teachings of Jesus.
    And you have followed the scripture perfectly, your whole life, right?

    The gay pride folks don't stop celebrating their social status because any number of gays have murdered people or purposely infected others with the HIV virus.
    There is a difference between actions of individuals, and actions of an organization… specifically religious leaders that order murder and destruction. From the very start of Christianity the church wanted to get rid of the pagans and ordered the destruction of pagan temples. Within the first 5 centuries of 'AD' time, thousands of pagans were murdered, their rituals were deemed illegal and punishable by death. This all came from the heads of the CHURCH.

    Charlemagne had over 4500 saxons beheaded because they would not convert to christianity, which was far from the worst mass murdering in the name of the church, the crusades killed off muslims, jews, natives in the 'new land' (americas), all 'infidels' that would not convert to christianity. All sanctioned by the CHURCH.

    When they were not murdering people because they refused to convert, they were murdering them because they were 'witches' or 'heretics'.

    So when the head/leadership of 'the gays' starts sanctioning similar bad things, let us know.

    If that was the case, there wouldn't be a 'real' christian alive.

    I don't see anyone here that is 'pro-jay'. I see posters that understand what it means to be human, and they understand liberty and freedom and the ideals of this nation. And it is not an anti-christian thing… both christianity and islam stand together in the same sort of bigotry, so why are you defending only your religion and not the other one?
