However, if you are going to call someone else's beliefs idiotic and all the hate you spew about Christians, you are making a definitive statement and then I would ask you to defend your position. You call people idiots and mock their beliefs and I ask you why they are idiots and why you attack them for believing differently than you and all you have is "i don't have to". We are right back to pathetic. Learn a little about tolerance. You cannot prove yoru beliefs any more than I can prove my. Which by your own logic, if you cannot prove your beliefs, then you are calling yourself an idiot.
Again, it's hypocrisy when tested against your own beliefs for Christians, atheists don't have a central dogma, so there is no conflict or hypocrisy.
The answer to this thread is very simple. It's not asking if Christians are discriminated against, or if there is any evidence of such a thing happening. It's asking if anyone feels like they are. Christians love to feel discriminated against. It's part of their history. Their origin is steeped in it. It's part of their identity. Of course, nobody has actually been discriminating against them for a millennium and a half, but they love to feel discriminated against, even while they're trampling on everyone else.
That's how not being able to strip gay people of their rights feels like discrimination to them. That's how privilege can twist a person's perception. Equality is a step down, and wanting to feel oppressed makes it even farther out of whack.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
The existence of God, either way in the argument is a belief. People on both sides argue their point like it is fact, both sides attempt to defer the burden of proof like this Cephus guy does. They do that because they know that they cannot prove their belief and in trying to do so they'd be forced to admit that their argument is just as weak as the opposite argument.
No, I don't think it is. Christianity does teach that, but it does not force people to act on it. Now, for the sake of argument, let's say God does exist and agree on that. And Christians get into heaven, all others burn in hell, you'd could make an argument that God is discriminating based on our laws. But a Christian believing that non-believers burn in hell and does not act on those beliefs is not discriminating.To Christianity though, doesn't it teach that non-believers are sinners and will burn for eternity in hell? That's by definition, teaching discrimination as a core belief
I'm not Christian. I just believe in tolerance. I don't think Christians should be mocking or be intolerant of people with different beliefs, and I don't agree with it when people do it to them.You are the first Christian I have seen on these forums that has so succinctly agreed to that.
I'd like you to go further with this.Go one level deeper as to WHY the behavior was engaged in, and there you may find good vs bad.
