    It all depends on which fruit you think is the real fruit. There is no way to know what a person believes by observing their actions.

    You are not that different from the Pharisees in your behavior here.

    That is a lie...I've never said any such thing, nor do I think it...

    Isn't that the case of churches today who "know" they're right and don't require evidence?

    And yes, I include the JW in that.

    That has nothing to do with self-righteousness...

    But you know you're right without evidence.

    Why do you believe what you do?

    Why do you spend so much time worrying about what she believes and attacking Christianity, Christians or anyone who believes in God?

    I'm worried about someone?

    I also attack people who support the 2nd Amendment and Donald Trump or haven't you noticed?

    The USA is ostensibly a Christian country with a Christian culture (as am I) so it's natural that most Theist posters are Christians.


    Religion does so much harm - it needs to be opposed and if necessary, attacked to protect against the damage it has done and is doing.
    Do you really not see the threat religion poses?

    I didn't accusing you of worrying about anyone, but it is good to know that you attack people who support the Constitution of the US and/or it's President. How progressive of you.

    Religion doesn't do any harm, people do. I often wonder how someone can spend so much time attacking someone for their belief in a higher power. It's not like it's being shoved down your throat or shoved in your face, unless someone is forcing you to be a regular participant in this forum. That's not actually happening is it?

    Religion poses no threat whatsoever and if that's what you see, I'd suggest visiting your closest eye doctor immediately.
