"Why would anyone compromise on their beliefs? That is just ridiculous."
With that I can agree.
Well they say it's not over till the fat lady sings so....
"The "Seven Sacraments" are completely made-up. The Bible never refers to any such thing."
DJ Khaled said what?
Yes, but those "right" organizations were originally under the Democrat flag.
Not sure what answer you want as you keep moving the goal posts in these OPs.
Sarcasm doesn't translate well over written text.
The Bible lives on & on - we will all die - Justin too!

Discriminate is action. Only some racist discrimination is illegal -- that affecting a place of employment, or a service. One can be discriminatory and refuse to patronize places of business that are owned by or employ a race (or religion, or ethnicity), and this is not illegal. Racism is a mindset, and viewpoint, and is not illegal under any circumstances.
I'd never call you condescending??. I just remember once someone made a comment about the link between violence in entertainment and increased aggression in kids, something that has been widely reported on, and someone asked for links. It's kind of troll-y. Plus, I'm not a librarian.
Guess lunch off, no time for a happy ignorant woman!!
"Most Christians were brought up to believe that God created Adam on the first day" Where did you get that idea. If anything Adam and Eve as man and woman would have been created on day 6. See chapter one of Genesis. However, the first chapter really talks about the original creation and the creation of all the men and women that were created on Earth. Adam and Eve were created in the Garden which was not on Earth. They were created after in chapter two. I look at Adam and Eve as the precursor to the Jewish people as the old testament is all about the adventures that lead to them coming into the Promised Land.
RebelRose, how do you understand this verse?:
You shouldn't talk about your wives that way. They are all nice people with libation skills.
As you judge other folks, you certainly judge yourself and your own culture. As you forgive others, show tolerance, patience, compassion, you do that to yourself, your own culture.
I have reduced you to repeating the taunts levied your way. It is clear why you cling to organized religion. Compensating will be your legacy.
Leftists never stop crying.
Lol .. you are kidding .. you are trying to use a vague fruit based metaphor to justify your beliefs ..
"Putting the blame on one man is subjective and unrealistic."
I am not aware of anything that we can absolutely know without reliance on our physical (finite) brains, sensory faculties and technical instruments. We can put no trust in anything that we cannot detect/measure in this way. Anything that we cannot detect/measure is not separable from illusion. If someone claims to have seen a ghost but has no evidence to show us, why would we have any reason to believe that it was not an hallucination?
I personally wouldn't feel discriminated against, I would just take my business and money elsewhere. But as I said that is me personally, can't speak for anyone else
It's not just religious organizations. Non-profits in general do not pay taxes--they are **non-profit**. I don't know all the details of Hovind, but I do believe he was a non-profit organization and to the extent they went after him even though his friend offered to pay the quarter million tax bill, they still threw the whole tax code at him, locked him up for 10 years and took away all his property. That doesn't happen to anyone unless you're part of the mafia or Cartel. So, yes, I do believe they persecuted him because of his religious and political beliefs.
I'm going to go to a party. I will get right on those 37 examples you need after I eat a burger and have some box wine.
