OK, naturally I agree with the person who posted this (terrorism or homosexuality? the former is obviously worse.) but I must take offense to the wording inside the article. Homosexuality worse than "terrorism OR ISLAM." Grouping an entire religion with terrorism just because the terrorists happen to be of that religion? Are we saying there have never been Christian terrorists? Umm, Inquisition? Crusades? Anyone? Now I don't hate Christians. I just think this is grounds for NOT HATING ISLAMS. Islam is NOT a threat to the country, even if particular Islams are. Are Asians a threat because of Virginia Tech? I think not.

^^ OK then, how about the New Testament? 1 Corinthians 6:9 "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders" (NIV). Or does this also fall under the category of one of the unsavoury bits of your holy book that you choose to ignore?
And if you're a TRUE Christian then you believe that only through salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ who died for our sins blah blah blah is anyone going to heaven. Christianity therefore declares that all atheists, muslims, hindus, shintoists, pagans, jews (and maybe, the wrong `kind` of Christian, i.e. Mormons, Catholics, whoever, depending on how you interpret your personal brand of Christianity) are all going to burn forever in eternal torment in Hell. That`s the alternative, right?

P.S. the premise of Christianity of TRUE Christianity is to question things because if you don't and you just take whatever anyone tells you at face value without thinking about it you`ll turn out like those quacks at the westborough baptist church
So yes I don`t have a "traditional view" on Christianity but my bond with god is real and I follow what Christianity is supposed to be to love people and challenge those that share the same mark of Christian as I have...
NOT this anti EVERYTHING bull that has penetrated churches today...

God also said To keep every bit covered to bow to your husband because he is stronger Not to cut your hair There's a whole LIST of things in the old testament that are Null and void in today`s church I don`t exactly see god setting fire to L.A. because it`s such a place of sin.
