You pompous, arrogant, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, hypocritical, Bibile thumping asshole - you do NOT speak for all Christians.

There are many Christian sects that support, sanction and perform same sex unions. Just as both the Reform and Conservative Jewish sects d0 (only the Orthodox Jews have stuck with the archaic laws - the smallest sect of Jews in the U.S.).

You don't know what the hell you're pontificating about. You're too self-important and self-absorbed to actually get facts. You're too ignorant and mean-spirited and hateful to have a civilized thought in your head.

Why don't you just go suck a .22 and do the world a favor?

one can parallel religious beliefs with political beliefs. if you say it is ok for a christian teacher to express their religious beliefs to the classroom, is it also ok for a liberal teacher to express their liberal ideology to the classroom? most conservatives complain when this happens.

if a teacher leads a christian prayer, followed by a wiccan prayer followed by a muslim prayer followed by a jewish prayer followed by a hindi prayer followed by a buddhist prayer followed by a native american prayer followed by a shinto prayer followed by a thousand other prayers then you could say they were not favouring one religion over another. but if they just read the christian prayer and leave out all the rest it is definitively favouritism.
Do you have 100% proof the universe was created by accident?

Yes or No..


If the answer is NO.. then Atheism which denies a creator is NO LESS based on faith, than My Belief in , Jehovah Elohim


Now you have to prove to me this is all by accident.. (which is proving a positive) you come back with absolute proof or it is based on faith.

Not actually.

Embryos no longer needed for stem-cell research
Whether or not embryonic stems cells are needed or even useful today, the limits were indeed a result of Christian Conservatives, back when they were believed to have great medical value, and with help from Bush 43 actual limits were placed on them.

Meanwhile, bigotry toward any minority group is not to be tolerated in the USA, whether supported in Christianity, outlawed in Islamic Republics or any other fucking society or country. This is the USA, where equal rights are a core value, as is religious freedom, which includes freedom from religion being established by government, which Christian groups are trying to do, and leading the parade to mandate bigotry toward Americans who are gay.

But many, I hope most, Christians are happy to worship as they choose, and respect others rights to worship as they choose, while being accepting of sexual orientations, which being christian (verb) would assume all God's children, whom God and God alone has the right to judge, and many of my Christian friends would say God would not wish us to hate Gay People who God made, which includes both my gay and straight Christian friends.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Sabcat

There would be law suits and death threats FROM THE CHRISTIANS !!!!

Yeah tell me again about how teaching religion is academic. Denial is NOT a river in Egypt.
I have no problem with a person saying they are a Wiccan, in fact when I was in Highschool, we had a morning prayer every day..

You see, unlike you I AM NOT AFRAID OF KNOWLEDGE..

There were muslims, there were Jews, there were Hindi that gave prayers mornings.. Atheists read poems or give words of inspiration of a non religious nature.

no one was threatened with death, no one was ran out of town on a rail..

So you might rethink your ignorant statement.

Your desire to see those you disagree with dead is kind of sick. Are you taking medication? If you aren't maybe you should.

Emphasis Added ...

Defense of Marriage Act. Creationism taught in public grade schools in pseudoscience BS. Working overtime to limit access to Reproductive Choice with state laws which merely endeavor to create hurdles, and require doctors (actual government control of a health care provider) to inform patients prior to being able to care for them with what's little more than Pro Life scare tactics literature.

I could go on.

Slippery Fish is the kind of person that makes the rest of all Christians the butt of jokes on tv sitcoms and movies in the theater.

Ignorant, self-important, and arrogant.

A really bad combination.

Well then heck, if a minute or two of starting the day with a bit of religious dogma, certainly schools should be allowed to spend a minute or two of an Atheist saying that, "Theology is a silly myth conjured up by primitive and superstitious societies thousands of years ago when they still believed the position of planets would predict disaster and entire societies would be in utter fear and rulers would make all manner of sacrifice including young virgin girls. Well have a good day of learning and not believing foolish myths. Tomorrow we'll have a short one minute talk about a local church doing crazy stuff. Amen. Hahahaha."

I couldn't agree more. Those who prefer not to celebrate the gay lifestyle are not haters, not bigots. This kind of name-calling is intolerant. Using these terms represent an attempt to shut down debate.

And perhaps those that promote this lifestyle, which has killed so many gay men, are the real enemies of men trapped in the homosexual lifestyle.
