[quote]Angillion: 1 Corinthians 11 has nothing to do with long hair on men.[/quote]

Try verse 14.

[quote]It`s about `covering` ones head during prayer[/quote]

That`s a bit earlier in the chapter. Here`s a modern English translation:

[quote]Now I want you to know that Christ is the head over all men, and a man is the head over a woman. But God is the head over Christ. This means that any man who prays or prophesies with something on his head brings shame to his head.[/quote]

Well, that makes it clear what a woman`s place is in Christianity under the much more enlightened new covenant. Good job Jesus got rid of all the nasty stuff. A brilliant display of logic in there too, explaining why you shouldn`t cover your head while praying.


I encourage people to read the Christian bible. I encourage people to read all religious texts, especially the old ones.

It`s a good way to promote atheism.

Angillion: 1 Corinthians 11 has nothing to do with long hair on men. It`s about `covering` ones head during prayer in reference to what the Corinthians were doing at the time. The Corinthians were slipping back into heathen ways and he was warning them against that practice.

In case anyone cares and thinks that CrakrJak has a point, the chapter in question is 1 Corinthians 11.

Verse 14 is the one about long hair on men being para physin. See if you can find the references to drag queens deceiving other men that CrakrJak sees there.

Check out all of 1 Corinthians 11 and see what the new covenant Crakrjak is advocating so highly says about the natural position of men and women in society. It`s...special.

Judgmental a$$holes exist with and without the impact of a religion on their lives, as various IAB comment sections have clearly demonstrated.

[quote]Angilion: Sampson had long hair so your `para physin` remark is bullsh|t.[/quote]

It`s from your bible. Are you now arguing that your bible is bullpoo? That`s unexpected.

[quote]What Paul was talking about was feminine men, men wanting to look like women to deceive other men, in other words drag queens.[/quote]

Thank you for providing such an excellent example of a point I made earlier:

[quote]It`s clear that condemnation of homosexuality came first and the bible was translated/interpreted to fit that pre-existing condemnation, usually with a great deal of stretching to make a very dubious match to the desired meaning.[/quote]

That`s what you`re doing right now.

Also, if anyone here cares and thinks that CrakrJak has a point, I urge you to read Romans 1 and 2 together, as they`re obviously meant to be. Romans 2 isn`t seperate from Romans 1.

[quote]Angilion: There is no `stretch` in the translation from Greek to English in Romans 1.[/quote]

There are stretches in the various translations and stretches to the preconceived meaning by ignoring the context. Romans 1 is about heterosexual apostate ex-Christians who returned to the traditional religion in a specific way. Obviously, that makes it completely irrelevant to homosexuality in general.

Do you really want to be arguing that it`s against nature for men to have long hair? If you really think that`s true, how do you explain why men`s hair naturally grows much longer than the very short Roman style Paul was advocating?

You do know that long hair on men is described as being para physin in your bible, right? So when you argue that para physin literally means `against nature`, you are arguing that it`s against nature for a man`s hair to grow longer than very short. I`d like to see you try to support that argument.

HG: I don`t care about what you may or may not worship. I don`t call people `Brainwashed`, `Naive`, `Stupid` and `Ignorant` for their beliefs, only their words and actions.

Your words and actions here have demonstrated just how callous and shameful you really are.

Angilion: There is no `stretch` in the translation from Greek to English in Romans 1.

"...females did change the natural use into that against nature; and in like manner also the males having left the natural use of the female, did burn in their longing toward one another; males with males working shame..." is the literal translation

Romans 1 says don`t do these `unclean` list of things
Romans 2 says not to hate other sinners, to not pass judgement on them.

It`s not a `trap`, it`s what Christ said in Matthew 7.

By the way, long hair on a man is "condemned" by Paul in 1 Corinthians in the same way as "homosexuality" is "condemned" by Paul in Romans - as being para physin. Actually, he condemns long hair on men much more clearly, but the point I`m making is that para physin doesn`t mean what it`s often interpreted into meaning in translations/interpretations of Romans 1:26-28.

It`s clear that condemnation of homosexuality came first and the bible was translated/interpreted to fit that pre-existing condemnation, usually with a great deal of stretching to make a very dubious match to the desired meaning. In two key verses (in Corinthians and Timothy), it`s just plain made up.

Then there`s the context of the whole of Romans 1 (which Paul apparently wrote as a trap for self-righteous Christians) - Romans 2.

But just to be on the safe side, heterosexual Christians shouldn`t take part in orgies as part of fertility rituals for the ancient Roman religion, make idols of other deities and worship them. As long as they avoid doing that, Romans 1:1-28 won`t apply to them.

See what I mean about context? It matters.

Besides, Romans 1 was written by Paul, a writer so notoriously difficult to interpret correctly that even your own bible warns you about it.

If I worshipped the invisible purple tiger that lives in my attic you would probably say I was naive, stupid, or ignorant. You just don`t believe those things about yourself because it is what you believe. You are convinced of its reality just like the Egyptians, Greeks, Scandinavians, and thousands of other cultures were convinced of their belief structure`s authenticity.

What exactly do I seem clueless about? I don`t believe any of it. That`s doesn`t mean I`m not knowledgeable about it. I`m presuming you were raised Christian and have never really learned or experienced any other religion. You took what was handed to you and decided that it must be the one that is true. Everyone else in the world must be wrong. That is cluelessness.

[quote]Angillion: It does, Romans 1:26-28 makes it rather clear.[/quote]

The version you use probably does, but the original verses in context don`t.

I admit that I can`t read the relevant dialect of ancient Greek (I studied Latin instead of Greek), but I`ve read a number of analyses from people who can. They didn`t agree on what it meant, but that reinforces the point that it`s not as clear as you claim.

Quick quiz:

What is the context of those verses?
What does para physin really mean?

If you don`t know the answers to those questions off the top of your head, you`ve no business being sure you know what the verses mean (and those answers are only the very barest beginnings of finding out).

HG: Your idiotic condescension is evident by describing Christians as `Brainwashed`, `Naive`, `Stupid` and `Ignorant`.

Sorry, I don`t believe a damn word you say about your supposed religious education because you seem utterly clueless. Your intent here was clear the minute you chose that nickname.

Angillion: It does, Romans 1:26-28 makes it rather clear.

First, I don`t consider myself a troll. I think religion is a bunch of ridiculously antiquated fairy-tales. Lots of people do. That doesn`t make me a troll.

Second, you have no idea what grasp I have on Christianity. I was raised in church. Sunday school and church every sunday. Later bible studies every wednesday. I`ve read the Bible cover to cover at least 3 times. I have taken several theology classes. But unlike you, I`m guessing, I`ve also read the book of Mormon, the Torah, the Quran, and books on Taoism, Hinduism, and Budhism. I`ve even been to a Scientology center and been audited.

I`m sorry if I think your belief structure is moronic. I`m sorry if that bothers you. But just because I do doesn`t mean I don`t get it or don`t know anything. I just apparently wasn`t as susceptible to brainwashing as you were.

Someone is bound to say "but the new testament condemns homosexuality too!"

It doesn`t.

Some things that people decided later to put in there and pass off as a translation do, but that`s not the same thing at all. I could claim that 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says that hipsters and Republicans won`t go to heaven. If I had enough money, I could get lots of copies of that "translation" printed. If I had enough power, I could get lots of people to believe that`s the right "translation". It`s not really any less accurate than the "translation" that people with enough money and enough power have had printed and believed by many.

[quote]How would you troll an atheist?[/quote]

By making statements of religious faith as if they were proven facts.

Like, for example, this one that CrakrJak might recognise:

[quote]Jesus sacrificed himself to bring forth a new covenant.[/quote]

[quote]Mosaic law is old covenant, history, Jesus sacrificed himself to bring forth a new covenant.[/quote]

So...you`re fine with homosexuality, right? After all, Jesus didn`t object to it and there`s nothing in the new testament either. Your "new covenant" has no issue with homosexuality, so you don`t either, right?

Right?

That`s not the case, is it?

Would you like me to give some other examples of old testament rules you still consider relevant? I bet there are some, because there`s a surprising amount of Christianity that isn`t in the new testament.

You`re a pick `n` mix Christian. Any Christian who isn`t a raving nutter has to be. You pick out the bits you like and you leave the bits you don`t like and you fudge up enough of a reason for your choices to justify them to yourself, just like every Christian.

jamie: IAB doesn`t troll muslims, terrorists on a rare occasion maybe. It also NEVER EVER trolls atheists. Atheism is sacrosanct around here.

Steelgrid: Evidently the only narrative on the bible you get is from anti-Christian websites. God forbid you actually read the New Testament and learn that `Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth` are gone. Mosaic law is old covenant, history, Jesus sacrificed himself to bring forth a new covenant.

HG: You`re a troll and have been since you came here. First you pick a nickname to try and piss Christians off then you spout bullsh|t about Christianity which you have no command of.

Let me try to explain it to you. People enjoy making fun of stupidity, ignorance, and naivety. If this post ripped on Scientologists you would have no problem with it. You might join in. It`s fun to make fun of crazy Tom Cruise. The problem here is that they happen to be picking on stupidity, ignorance, and naivety you subscribe to.

I see NONE of this concern from you at all, in the least, whatsoever, when IAB trolls Muslims...or any other religion for that matter.

sorry, being a Christian does not make you exempt from being messed with, toyed with, made fun of or trolling.

If no other religions get a free pass NEITHER DO YOU.

and btw, I am a Christian and guess what? This doesn`t bother me and it shouldn`t bother you either. You DO NOT HAVE TO GET UPSET at what others say or do, even if it involves your beloved religious belief system.

what is shameful really, is your BS attitude that everything else IAB makes fun of it ok...as long as they do not make fun of your religion.
