Fun example of the golden rule being less than useful. I hate celebrating my birthday, or being surprised. So I routinely blow surprises, and refuse to contribute to planning someone else's party.
The pope believe in God and fails at truth. Assuming Muslim and Mormons believe in God, do they believe the truth?
Hope so. For all .....very strange things happening. ?? ??
The Finals last year was more boring LOL
Not at all. Let's back up.
Yes. Satan does not exist in my world view.
I have seen that too. I understand that there is an adjustment period, though.
They didn't analyse 100,000 animal species, they did 3 species.
I used to think their values represented (many of) my own, but then they took liberalism and bastardized it to benefit themselves. If, for example, the Wynne government had been competent stewards of our provincial bank account ? rather than rewarding themselves and their friends with our money whenever they felt the urge ? and had kept spending at reasonable,
Lol, you're so cute. I'm sorry. I didn't realize it was your first day on the internet. For future reference, you can expect to be called on fallacious arguments. You may not last long if you're always this much of a snowflake.
Yes, but don't tell anyone. After all, I'm female and this is the religion channel. I'm not supposed to enjoy or talk about sex.
Remember, weather isn't climate, except when it fits the narrative...
I think you?ll find cultures all over the world that have integrity and justice without the genecidol god of the OT and the magician called Jesus in the NT. I?m sure there are people all over the world that don?t feel Christianity has at all done anything to constrain Christian ethics. From the genecoided of indigenous peoples, to the continued depletion of natural resources around the world to the science deniers of climate change Christianity has leveled great crimes against this planet and it?s people.
They can sacrifice them, but can't violate animal cruelty laws.
It was a computer word search. They were targeting political organizations applying for tax exempt status. Some were liberal but of course there were more conservative groups trying to get away with not paying taxes. Word searches are complicated and flawed. It's the nature of the beast. I've done a couple. Think about trying to separate businesses from individuals in court cases. You look for "Ford Motor" and you get dealerships as businesses. However, you'll miss businesses like "Fairfield Ford." But if you only look for "Ford," you consider John Ford, Gerald Ford and Henry Ford businesses. Some of the words they searched for were "Emerge", "ACORN" and "Justice" but they got more hits on "Tea Party", "Patriot" and "Conservative." Why? Because 84% of organizations applying for 501(c)s were conservative. These are the divisive times of spin that we live in. I'm thinking that you might consider this fake news, but at least you will find it interesting reading even if you read it as fiction:
"None of them are "totally ignored"."
Yes, agreed :)
3. Should high school students be allowed to discuss their religious views with peers individually?
Now if he was TOLD it was the nicer house, then he should absolutely drag someone over the coals for it.
Blahahahahahaha! Oh, geez, that was a good one! Coffee through the nose and everything . . . wait . . what?? What do you mean it wasn't a joke??
People themselves should change the rules. The question is how ready people are to do so! As long as parents submit to the blackmail and baptise their children in order to find a post in the school, Church will always have the upper hand! Do not expect from any corrupted politicien to change the legislation. Catholic Church is deeply implanted in every government influencing its own interests.
I don?t really block anyone. Easy enough to ignore or go elsewhere.
Yeah I am going to hard disagree with you here. Society has decided men do the asking.
no god does, either
Well don't forget his stance against abortion, it never seems to make the lists of why he's so great like yours above... Why not?
I quoted you lol.
Looks like I might missed everyone while I was watching Critical Role.
As I explained in the OP...which it seems you never read...why the implausibility of life is not an argument for a creator deity, but the opposite. Please read the OP.
The physical world has a rational explanation and does not prove a god. I suppose that the early inhabitants who knew no better had to create gods to explain the things that they didn't understand and they created thousands of them.
I am sincere in thanking you for your candor, Omda. It really helps me understand what racism means to someone who has been there, everyday of their life. I especially appreciate your comment on our christian response - so awesomely insightful! Thank you so much. Please do not hesitate to comment on this thread. We can use your insight! ???????
