I said CJs conviction. Not just "hey all, anyone with strong beliefs is worthy of respect."
I have explained why that respect is valid. I didnt frame it in the exact terms you wanted but who cares what you want? It was still sort of snotty to say that about a guy like CJ. Your one liner wasnt thought provoking it was just sort of crumby and mean.

But you have worn me out with endless whining and subject changing tactics. Shot down on every point you made. Your right to never be offended, Gods right to run heaven, what group is violent (since you brought them up I would think you would have considered your belief carefully, with all the counter-points and from all the angles.) And still you scramble for any small bit of ground to stand on.

Make the last post and feel somehow you have won the day. I wont be back this deep into the threads to read it anyway.

i... i wish i could be there when she heldt that speech. i would break her jaw and explain to all the confused people listining to that bullcrap, that what they are doing and the feelings they have is completely natural and there`s nothing wrong with what they are doing or how they feel. Arrrgh that woman makes me mad.

when i listen to ppl preaching, it`s like everything is moving towards "the rapture" or what ever you call it. but it wont happend. the closest thing to a rapture humanity will ever possibly experience is nuclear war or astroids on colition course to earth. I laugh at these people. laugh with a worried frown because they contribute to drating the world up

Because you say that strong conviction and belief are worthy of respect in and of themselves, regardless of what those beliefs might be (that`s the "agree or disagree" part), yes.

Believing something is only respect-worthy if you can demonstrate that you have considered your belief carefully, with all the counter-points and from all the angles. If someone just believes something without ever thinking critically about it, I have no respect for that belief.

If CJ was offended by my statement, I apologise to him unreservedly. But I suspect he wasn`t really, because he understood the comparison I was drawing, and that the criticism was aimed at your thinking, not his character.

Those are not the qualities you chose to highlight. The ones you focused on were, and I quote you:

[quote]Agree or disagree with CJ, but the man has solid convictions and beliefs. It would be far easier for him to just no bother to post on such stuff. But he has the stones to step up knowing he will be attacked en` masse by all the "tolerant" lefties.[/quote]

All you talk about are his solid convictions and beliefs (if you read my other posts again you`ll notice I make repeated references to these two qualities in my suicide bomber analogies). Those two are traits that the WBC, ALF, CJ and suicide bombers all share - solid conviction and belief that they are right.

If you had said "Agree or disagree, with CJ, but the man is polite and logical, direct and honourable" I would have agreed with you (well, maybe not the logical one). But you didn

"If it was a choice between my brother smoking in my house and being tortured forever, I`d hand him the lighter personally."

And the rub comes in that according to you, the house, smoking and even you don`t exist. So why all the worry about it?

Why not let us brainwashed chumps keep on sleeping? You and the overwhelming numbers that believe as you do can just make the world what it should be through sheer numbers.

If you say I cant smoke in your home, can I argue that I am your brother and we love eachother? If you really love me you will let me smoke. But see, if I love you, I will respect your house.

Wizard77, what? When did I say I`m pissed that people think that or say that? You are allowed to think and say whatever you want. What I`m arguing is that I don`t believe that God "loves" all of his children and yet wants them to burn in hell for going against rules that he himself made up for some arbitrary reason. Either he hates homosexuals and thus wants them to go to hell, or he loves them but is somehow powerless to stop them having to go to hell. Either God is not benevolent or he is not omnipotent. Oldest argument in the book, and one that I have yet to see refuted.

Nah, I`m not angry, more fascinated. It`s like a car crash you can`t look away from. I really struggle to understand how you can square away the "my house, my rules, if you don`t like it GTFO" homeowner in this analogy with a loving God. I treat the people I love better than that.

You speak around corners sir. What CJ does here is present logical arguments and a pretty civilized manner. Trying to shoe-horn him into people that are constantly causing harm is pretty lame.

Whoa whoa whoa. When have the WBC ever been violent or destructive?

Phelps Sr.`s eldest grandson, Benjamin Phelps, was convicted of assault and disorderly conduct after spitting into the face of a passerby during a picket.

Margie Phelps and her son Jacob were arrested for trespassing, disorderly conduct and failure to obey after disregarding a police officer`s order during an attempted protest

Shirley Phelps-Roper was arrested in Nebraska and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor

That is from a very quick search.

I`m not missing anything. Again we come back to thought crime. Because both of you claim to be atheists. What do you care if someone`s delusional belief system sends you to a magical land of fire that you are oh so sure doesn`t exist.

You are pissed that people THINK this and don`t want them to ever SAY it. Why? Because you don`t like it and no other reason. By your logic, opponents can say YOU should not be allowed to talk about gay love being real. You cant prove it, or that love itself even exists. And...they find it offensive.

"My very next sentence explained why. If you accept this as a sound reason, someone with a different religion then has an equal claim that we should legislate according to THEIR beliefs. You can`t run a civilisation like that."

And my next sentence was "hence the vote" so there you go.

"I don`t care if they think it, I care if they tell me I deserve it."

Here you depart from logic. If I said you deserve to be eaten by Bigfoot would you be so offended? Or would you think (that is just dumb) and move on. I know I would. But see, I don`t believe in Bigfoot. Now if you were offended, so what? You do not have a right to never be offended. No one does. We are all stuck here together and each of us can pretty much be sure that we will be offended from time to time.

The offensive part is that they say I deserve it. Nobody deserves eternal torture. Nobody. Not even Hitler. Infinite punishment, for what must logically be finite crime, is not justice.

You would need to talk to God about Hitler. But I am sure that no one has a right to never be offended.

The shot was aimed at your logic, not CJ`s person. If you want to call it cheap because it invokes a little hyperbole to make the point more obvious (although apparently still not obvious enough) then go ahead.

But fine. Pick something else.
A member of the WBC. Do you respect them? They have very strong convictions and beliefs too, and they voice them despite knowing how much scorn they`ll receive - not just from "the "tolerant" lefties" but from those on the right too.
Surely they then merit even more respect?

Or a member of the Animal Liberation Front. They believe so strongly that animals are equal to people that they destroy testing labs that use animals. Do you respect that?

"Legislating against something when your argument is "because my religion says so" is not OK."

Says who?

"a follower of another religion can claim equal weight. That`s not democracy, it`s theocracy."

Hence the vote. Its also why a democratic republic is better than a true democracy.

I have said before that I have yet to hear a compelling argument against gay marriage. I know the quotes from the Bible but that is Old Testament not New Testament. Jesus never said being gay barred salvation. As a matter of fact he didn`t mention it at all. I take allot of heat from other Christians for this view but its hard for them to argue.

But the real points here are:

1) Its Gods house and he will run it as he sees fit.

2) You don`t believe in any of it anyway so why would you care if someone thinks you are going to hell for any reason for any amount of time?

Legislating against something I don`t agree with is fine, if you can argue a sensible case why it should/shouldn`t be allowed. Legislating against something when your argument is "because my religion says so" is not OK. Not least because a follower of another religion can claim equal weight for whatever their opinion is. That`s not democracy, it`s theocracy.

moefreak Its very simple. Ever been to someone`s home and they want you to take off your shoes before you come in? Its their home and they have a right to require this if they choose. You have two choices. Take off your shoes or don`t come in. They aren`t making you do anything.

"But I want to come in and still keep my shoes on!"

Too bad. Their house, their rules.

If that seems like THEY are the one being unreasonable, then you have a very entitled point of view when it comes to someone else`s house.

CrakrJack: So you think the appropriate punishment for a child disobeying his mother is never being let into the house again? And the bully is the devil, essentially. The mother knowingly punishes the child by having him tormented because the child disobeyed her. It`s a pretty accurate analogy, I feel. And I don`t get where this whole "Loving god" thing comes from.

He loves us all of "his children" and yet wants to see us suffer because we didn`t do like we were told. If it so pains him to do it (to send us to hell), then why does he? He is all powerful, is he not? He made up the rules, he could break them.

Of course not. You are nothing like a suicide bomber.
I picked that example because it was the first that popped into my head, and although it`s hyperbolic, it actually fits the argument I wanted to make.

Wizard77 was saying that he respects and applauds you for having and voicing strong convictions, with the implication that we should be doing the same even if we do not agree with you.

I merely provided a counter-example which I knew he would definitely not agree with, even though his argument (strong convictions and beliefs are laudable even if they are disagreeable) applies equally to a suicide bomber as it does to you.

[quote]You are angry that religious believers think they are right.[/quote] No, I`m angry when they:
a) try to influence my or others` lives because of their convictions - these days mainly through legislation against gay rights or abortion or whatever, but sometimes through violence (see: Muslim fundamentalism, Christian abortion clinic bombings/assassinations)

I sure appreciate you telling me what I believe. Keeps me from having to explain anything. If you have to kill concerning a religious concept, then yes, you are worthy of distain. It was evil and wrong when Christians did with the inquisition and numerous wars etc. And its evil and wrong now when the muslims or anyone else does it.

"A cheap dismissal in lieu of thoughtful consideration of a legitimate counter-point."

The first one was just what I said. A zinger and a bit tedious. It got the response it deserved. Once you were called out, you made a logical comparison and voiced an argument. Don`t blame me that you had a troll moment. And I think you are reaching to compare CJ with a suicide bomber. Just sort of desperate really.

Yes, I am committed to my faith. If some jackbooted thug put a gun to my head and said renounce God or else, I`d say `Send Me Home`, What he did after that is up to him.

A suicide bomber is a coward, He`d rather end his life and take as many people along with him than live. Living life can be far scarier than dieing, Suicide is the easy way out, Especially if you have idiots promising you 72 virgins if you do it. Suicide bombers are neither committed or brave, They are scared and feel life is hopeless.

Well almightybob1, the great part of the whole two sided argument is that no one can prove a negative either. So believers have exactly as much proof that God does exist as you have that he doesn`t.

And no, believing in Bigfoot doesn`t have a moralistic connotation. But here is where the catch is. You are angry that religious believers think they are right. So you are pissed-off about an IDEA. You are upset that they THINK you will be punished according to their belief system in an AFTERLIFE you do not think exists as they see it.

Basically, you don`t like others thinking that way.

Both have strong convictions, both have beliefs. Hell, the suicide bomber is prepared to DIE for his. Yet you consider one admirable and the other despicable because you happen to share the convictions of the former.
If, as you suggest, we should applaud and respect CJ for his strong convictions and beliefs even if we disagree, then we should logically applaud and respect a suicide bomber even more even if we disagree, because he has made the ultimate sacrifice for his convictions and beliefs.

I like that you used a common argument against theism here. (Why don`t you believe in God? Why don`t you believe in leprechauns? Because there`s no evidence and it`s never been proven that they exist. Exactly.)

I also have no problem with people believing in Bigfoot, because they don`t claim that Bigfoot gives them divine universal morals which everyone including me should accept without question, or that I will be eternally punished for not believing in Bigfoot.

almightybob1: No you got that wrong. The mothers home is `heaven`, The mud is the sin, and it doesn`t matter what type of sin it is. The cleaning is what asking for forgiveness is.

The mother never scolds the child, doesn`t say you can`t ever get dirty, or prevents him from getting dirty, That`s called freewill. She just insists on keeping a clean house and that includes not letting her child inside until he`s clean. Jesus paid for an infinite supply of soap and water, So to speak, To make it easier to get clean.

You expect God to prevent you from sinning ? Then how would you ever have freewill ? God will never allow sin into heaven no matter what kind of sin it is.

Every so often I meet someone that, for the life of them; just cant understand how anybody could possibly believe in a God. But this sort of atheist is not the norm. The norm is proud of their "enlightened" thinking and "superior" understanding over those blind religious fools. Almost always there is woven into their words, anger and resentment for those that do believe in God.

It brings to mind an old saying "the type of atheist that doesn`t so much not believe in God, as personally dislike him"

The real problem for them is that to believe in God, one suddenly must change their behavior. Not because of "personal evolution" or whatever hedonistic BS is easy to follow, but because they accept that they are not the end-all-be-all of life. Not because all humans are equal, but because all humans are less than God.

I don`t believe in Bigfoot. But I am not angry that groups of others enjoy believing in Bigfoot

CrakrJak, what? What does Jesus have to do with anything here? Bottom line is, if you practice homosexual sex consistently throughout your life and never feel an ounce of regret about it, you go to hell. Right? So why would God allow us to do such things, if he didn`t want us to? He forbids it because it is "unnatural" (which is amusing since he is the one decides what is natural in the first place), and yet allows us to do it all we want. Then, eternal damnation. So he gives us the option to sin (having first arbitrarily chosen what constitutes as sin) and then punishes us for following our natural inclinations. Why? For what purpose?

To test us? Too make us stronger? While we burn in hell?

Why do people take the hateful parts of the bible as canon? Why do they pick and chose about what ridiculous claims they take as valid? You can hate on gay people but you still eat shrimp, wear blended fabrics and use crop rotation. You don`t put your wife in a tent when she`s on her period. You don`t stone a child to death when he talks back to you.
The bible is NOT the word of god. Christianity is NOT the absolute truth. It`s a book written to help explain man`s insignificance in the universe without it seeming so crushing. So much of the Bible is UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. Sin is not defined by what some two-millennium old sheep herders wrote, it`s defined by the measure of the merit of an action. And telling someone they will go to hell holds no merit, when the entire CONCEPT of hell is a blatant rip off of paganism. Christianity as a religion is a shambling, Frankenstein-esque abomination of religions stitched together with the most outlandish and ramshackle bindings.

Okay, so according to your analogy, God (the mom) should be stopping the gay sinner (mucky child) from committing the sin of gay sex (trailing dirt all over the house).
And yet gay people are still able to engage in homosexual acts.

So actually, the analogy would be more like the mom saying "Don`t do that!", but then not intervening when the child comes into the house dirty anyway, instead thinking "Oh never mind, I`ll just punish him later".


Is that right?

CrakrJak, perhaps better to assume that all people are equal by virtue of being people, since the majority of humans aren`t bound by the U.S Constitution, myself included. I`ll take your comment regarding its authors with a pinch of salt, however, considering the contention surrounding that subject.

Maybe you should also be wary of protecting Christianity, since the group consists of so many proponents that no one quality defines them all, not even tolerance.

I`m likewise wary of defending Atheists as a group, as having any opinion without appropriate consideration to back it up can be most foolish, and I have known a few fools.

moefreak: God doesn`t want to condemn any of his children (us) to hell, That`s why he sent his son Jesus down here to pay for our sins.

Think of it this way, A mom knows her kid gets dirty playing in the mud, Because she`s had to clean up after him leaving muddy footprints, handprints and stains all over her house a few times.

Does she keep letting him do that ? No, She stands by the door refuses to let him enter and makes him clean up before she lets him back in the house. Does she hate her kid because she wants to see him clean ? No, She loves her child but can`t stand the mud.

I hope this analogy helps.

I honestly do feel bad for gay Americans. They get such a hassle just for doing nothing. She says about how Madonna and Britney kissed and the after math, but they`re both not gay though. The after math is unrelated to the kiss(Unless it`s that Illuminati thing I saw), but for for being gay it`s not. It`s like saying all gays will have this problem. Which never does, it`s like saying someone who lived to 100 years but smoked is a good example of how smoking is good. Just because it happened once doesn`t mean it will always be like that when the all of the times it doesn`t turn out like that.
Lesbians love it, guys love it, so what right?

CrakrJak, is disagreeing with you intolerance? I thought the whole point of tolerance was that you are willing to put up with something you disagree with.

I`m perfectly tolerant of you. I think you are entitled to your beliefs. And if you, like you say, do not go around "confronting" homosexuals about what "sinners" they are, then great.

And how can you say that "god hates the sin, not the sinner"? Why is it then that the sinner gets to burn in hell? God wants to punish those who sin by subjecting them to eternal agony. That sounds like hate to me.

Caretta: I don`t consider myself above anyone, We are all equal according to the constitution (written by religious men I might add).

I don`t go out confronting gays, Nor do I get up and preach at all. I`ve simply came to the point that I don`t personally care, But I`ll back those that do care and try to reach out.

I don`t waste my time, I don`t confront or preach to people in real life (unless you consider my comments here to be preaching). The main reason I comment here is to clarify what Christianity is and rebut the intolerance for Christians that I see here.

But I guess, CrakrJak, that you wouldn`t consider it an expression of my love for you as a person if I were to `warn` you that you`re wasting the only existence you`re ever likely to experience by being disappointed in people for not living as you`d like them to, via your interpretation of whichever religion you espouse.

Choosing not to `warn` gay people may seem to you to be hate, but to me it seems more like the most basic respect.
Is it too much to assume that other people have made informed choices about their own lives? Or does a sense of moral and religious superiority preclude that possibility?

jamie76: I heard the same argument from prostitutes saying, `We aren`t hurting anyone`. Yes, They are, They are hurting themselves.

It`s a sin, Sin always hurts. I don`t care how many are sinning it doesn`t make it less of a sin, Sin is not determined by popularity.

BTW, Heureux, Lucifer committed prideful sin believing he was better than God. Many homosexuals are living in sin continuously and they even name their parades `Gay Pride`.

It`s not pride to try to warn a neighbor their house is burning down, It`s love. If Christians truly hated gays we`d never try to warn them, Now that would be true hate.

with all the REAL tragedies occurring in this world, with all the suffering, people dying needlessly, starvation, war, water shortages, disease, etc. you would think that this right wing christian fantics would focus their energy on something much more meaningful then atacking a group of people that ARE NOT HURTING ANYONE and that are just trying to live out their lives they way they wish.

But no, instead these "christians" focus exteme hatred and unjust treatment on gays. I AM A CHRISTIAN and I DO NOT believe it is my right to JUDGE OTHERS.

“Judge NOT, that you be not judged” in Matt 7:1

For the Christian, anger and wrath are inconsistent with our new nature, which is the nature of Christ Himself (2 Corinthians 5:17)

We know Davis, we know. You just believe that they`re all going to burn in Hell for all eternity, to have their living skin ripped from their flesh by demons, to have their bones charred to a black carbon, to be viciously abused in acid and lava and fire and torment - not just for a day, but for a f*cking eternity!

But yeah, we hear ya bro. You`re not homophobic. You don`t hate gays. It`s your merciful and all-loving God that hates gays.

I`m just thankful every day that God didn`t say anything about liking the colour green being an abomination. I happen to like the colour green.

But then again, my greenophilia is not the crime, it`s ACTING UPON my likeness of the colour green that`s the crime. Like if I were to go paint my room green, just cause I like the colour green. THAT would be abhorrent.

Love the person who likes the colour green, Hate the sin of painting your room green.

"We Are Gonna Put A Stop To This In Our Generation!"

I love this statement. Said with such authority.

...however...Cindy, you`re wrong.

This was the chance to display at least a little humility and you blew it like a gay man at a sausagefest.

You can legislate it, and all you`ll do is make an unenforceable law. You can scream at people and they`ll do it right in front o` ya. You can say that you`re a panda but the point is simply this...it doesn`t make it so.

I might disagree with homosexuality itself but even I`m not so arrogant to think that there`s anything at all I can do to stop it.

Cindy, wake up and smell the clues. Pray all you want but don`t for one minute think you`re going to stop the carpetmunching. Your types couldn`t even stop the sale of Ozzy records or Dungeons and Dragons games.

We are all quick to point out the sin of killing puppies, I fail to see how it is wrong to point out the sin of homosexuality. Paul pointed out the many sins of members of the early church within the new testament.

Here are the bilblical principles to back up my arguement. The act of loving another individual is not the sin, it is the physical actions with someone of the same sex that is.
I do not hate gay people and I am not homophobic. There is nothing that I can do or that the government for that matter can do to prevent homosexuality. I`m merely stating my stance of disagreement with the popular vote.

"When does sexual conduct become perverted and immoral? At what point does a person become "sick and perverted" as opposed to making a lifestyle choice."

The same as when any conduct, including yours, harms self or others. Homosexuality does not intrinsically meet that standard, but the prejudice against homosexuals does.

You are engaged in sin, davisboy, against millions of human beings. Please, repent.

Davisboy, your arguments are a case of excuse-making, a way to blame GLBTQ people for your sin of pride.

"But if you believe in the concept of sin, then where is the line drawn separating normal sexual behavior to sinful sexual deviate? And that, is clearly laid out in Bible.
I don`t hate homosexuals,"

You are not telling the truth. Referring to the loving intimate relationships of millions of human beings as deviant is an expression of hatred.

"I don`t wish them harm,"

You harmed us by calling us deviants.

"but I do not agree with their lifestyle"

This is pride on your part, the same sin that lead Lucifer to reject God, the same sin the serpent enticed Eve with.

Homosexuality, and lovemaking between same-sex couples is not a sin. But your assertion that it is, which is just a backwards way of saying that your sexual orientation is better, is the sin of pride.

Please repent.

@spartakitty, I was trying to make my point with a question. Here is an example to drive home what I am trying to say.

I don`t think that many of us would disagree that the act of 2girls/1cup is a sin. If you don`t, then you must not differentiate right from wrong. So, if that is your stance, that there is no right or wrong in nature, then I can`t argue with you.
But if you believe in the concept of sin, then where is the line drawn separating normal sexual behavior to sinful sexual deviate? And that, is clearly laid out in Bible.
I don`t hate homosexuals, I don`t wish them harm, but I do not agree with their lifestyle any more than than that of a stripper, or prostitute. People go to hell because they refuse to ask for forgiveness from God for that sin, not because they are homosexual.

Perverted - a matter of personal taste and opinion. Personally, when it starts to involve other bodily products (apart from the ones you`d expect) in any way, I`m out.
Immoral - when the other parties involved have not given, or are incapable of giving, informed consent.
