    Not Wanted

    You are being very insulting. As much as each Religion believes their faith, they still do not call others "idiots". As well, not all Muslims wants to kill. I am not a Muslim, but I'm not one who generalizes like you do.

      So basically from looking at your "poll", being a Christian is the only acceptable choice to you. That leaves out one exceedingly large percentage of the world's population. In this omitted population, the demographics are probably very similar to what they are within your Christian faith -- many are good, some are bad, and some are so ignorant that they post insulting polls.

        What are you trying to determine with your choice of options?

          BTW...

          Learn to spell "atheist", at least.

            This kind of thing is what gives good people who are Christians a bad name. Yes, I know some good people who happen to be Christian, my parents for instance. And no, they don't go around trying to convert people. Nor do they insult every other religion like this poll does.

                Darn, you left something out, too! And it's the only one I could possibly pick: I AM GOD! [img]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]

                You know, my boyfriend once had a really funny encounter with a man who was going door-to-door. I don't remember what all the guy said after my bf, Erik, opened the door, but Erik politely said he wasn't interested, that he had his own beliefs. He went to shut the door, but the guy stuck his foot in the way (!!!) and said, "What *are* your beliefs?" Erik said, "I am God!" and shut the door in the guy's face!

                  Do female Muslims get 72 male virgins when they martyr themselves? I may have to change my beliefs if they do.

                    Who wants a male virgin? Even after 72 of them I doubt a woman would feel satisfied. Give me a man with experience who knows what he needs to do! [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                      i'm a Christian; i definately feel that Christianity gets such a bad rep b/c SOOO many people like to make it a list of do's & don'ts, focusing on the things in this culture that scripture teaches 'against.'

                      that's such an obnoxious mentality --> it's the difference between "do" & "done" - it's NOT "do this, don't do that" - it's simply accepting what Christ has done through His love... & then any given individual's life, whose heart has truely been affected, will simply be a reflection of Christ's love, through actions, words, etc..

                      don't rail me for this - it's just my take on it.

                        So we're going on the theory that that men are unteachable? I guess you just may have a point in this particular area. So many of them mix up inches and centimeters when it comes to rulers... [img]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]

                          absolutely Blueduck...

                          ...I know of many "Christians" who live their lives with the knowledge that Jesus is always with them. They take the good they have learned in the Bible and have applied it to their own lives. Sounds like this is what you have done and I admire and in a way envy you for it.

                          However...many "Christians" like the idiot who started this thread use the Bible and its words to support their own misguided "human" beliefs.

                          I mean, I could actually respect the opinion of not liking homosexuality because the person thought it gross...or because in their minds it spreads desease and immorality. I'd say they were misguided but at least I could respect that opinion a little bit.

                          However, when the only reason givin for hating homosexuality is because "the Bible told them so", well...that gets my gander up....and imho it is one of the most lame-butt reasons and a homophobic cop-out. For them it must be very convieniant to be able to "hate" in the name of God.

                            Why is it that those Christians who denounce homosexuality base their belief on a passage in Leviticus, yet when they're asked why they don't follow all the Levitical rules claim that the coming of Jesus rendered the Original Testament laws moot? Who decided which parts of Leviticus they can pick to follow? Why aren't they keeping kosher, and not wearing mixed fabrics?

                              Seriously, religion can be a powerful source of comfort or and extremely destructive force. Too often beliefs are misused to justify oppression and subjugation of others. All religions hold truths if only people would open themselves to different ways of seeing God.
