I love the cliche attacks on Christians, all the while thinking that your attack on a supposed view of the world, is somehow morally justified and less reprehensible.
Maybe the overall message of the Bible is meant to be taken figuratively, not literally.
Of course this is the "gimme generation" therefore if it requires work, it is an "abomination".

@CrakrJak It's my statement of belief.

"How very "liberal" of you! Make them wear crosses on their sleeves? Put them into "re-education camps" next, yes? Very Liberal!"

I don't think I identify with a liberal tag. I just say what sounds right to me.

No crosses on sleeves; this is not a race thing. It`s a religious thing.

Maybe we should classify religion under The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

No, SmagBoy1's post is not really a valid criticism. There is nothing about John 3:16 that makes Sam Harris`s comments "irrefutable". I`m not exactly sure what SmagBoy1 thinks John 3:16 says, but John 3:16 does not say "God does not allow painful things to happen to people." Read it in context.

God loves the world; so he sent a savior for those who would believe in the Son (16). Jesus did not come to condemn us (17) because humans are already condemned (18). Most people prefer darkness to light (19-20), but those who want forgiveness are willing to come into the light (21).
The passage describes a contrast between believers and non-believers and their legal status before God. If you are frustrated with Christians who take Bible verses out of context, do not celebrate critics who take Bible verses out of context.

@SmagBoy1: See? That is a VALID argument and/or criticism! You do make them, I do acknowledge them! It is indeed frustrating when "religious types" are so selective in their literal interpretations.

Ugh, a day late: you'll probably never see this and continue to think ill of me... Alas!
