    Blink, they want all Christian aspects thrown out. If they wanted actual “equality,” they would help Christians and Satanists alike, or oppose Christians and Satanists alike. Satanists hate God, as well as FFRF. They have the same goal, therefore they work together.

    “By studying how people themselves describe their moral and immoral experiences, instead of examining reactions to artificial examples in a lab, we have gained a much richer and more nuanced understanding of what makes up the moral fabric of everyday experience,”

    So you took subjective statements and entered them as concrete data while adding your own subjective conclusions to it (“religious people were found to have more pride and gratitude when they committed moral acts” …how exactly do you conclude whether one has more pride than another from subjective personal dialog?) and dismissed conclusions that were scientifically approached using experiment and control.

    Lately universities and colleges have been making the news quite a bit… for porn professors, trampling of conservative rights, driving out chick-fil-a donations, requiring courses like white privilege, and laughing conservatives speakers off the stage. Recently, a “study” claimed family dinners were elitist and put “undue stress” on mothers. http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=5894

    Don’t bother sending your kids to “higher learning” centers. Houses of fools, that’s all they are.

    My thoughts exactly, Monk.

    Amen, Brother Phil.

    Many seem to be forgetting that religious symbols and references are perfectly legal, even under the current twisting of the first amendment, if they serve a secular purpose. Crosses have served the secular purpose of honoring the dead for a very long time.

    Only FFRF seems to think a cross is going to suddenly start preaching at them, not that they couldn’t use some preaching.

    “How they were born” means nothing by itself anyway, true or not true. My son was “born” with a hot temper. That doesn’t mean I give in to his tantrums.

    all of your comments are misdirecting, blinknight.

    @ 1. Even if that were true, and I don’t believe you even if you were to pull up a huffpost article, whom I believe even less, the statement Phil made was, “a disease free guy and a disease free woman marry and they keep their sex between the two of them. They’re not going to get chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or AIDS. It’s safe.”

    If Christians break God’s law of one man and one woman, they are just as susceptible to the consequences. Your statement does not refute what Phil was saying.

    @ 2. Phil mentioned psychological as well as physical consequences. He didn’t elaborate however. I did recently see a study that mentioned most lesbians were overweight. Lesbian then overweight, or overweight then lesbian? Obesity can be a symptom, or sometimes a cause of other psychological and self esteem issues. Not that I think a bird flying in front of you would convince you flight is possible, were you inclined not to believe it.

    @ 3 Are you saying it’s the same in other countries, I’m guessing those with less “taboo” on the subject? So STDs are somehow a respecter of countries of “tolerance?”

    @ 4 Are they practitioners of monogamous relationships then? That would be the only relevance of the statement.

    Like a math story problem, it’s important to throw out the unnecessary “information” to arrive at the correct answer. Not one of those “facts” was relevant to what Phil said.

    My country, ’tis of thee,Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing;
    Land where my fathers died,
    Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
    From ev’ry mountainside
    Let freedom ring!

    My native country, thee,
    Land of the noble free,
    Thy name I love;
    I love thy rocks and rills,
    Thy woods and templed hills;
    My heart with rapture thrills,
    Like that above.

    Let music swell the breeze,
    And ring from all the trees
    Sweet freedom’s song;
    Let mortal tongues awake;
    Let all that breathe partake;
    Let rocks their silence break,
    The sound prolong.

    Our fathers’ God to Thee,
    Author of liberty,To Thee we sing.
    Long may our land be bright,
    With freedom’s holy light,
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God our King.

    And the fact you think homosexuality is ok indicates that you are highly immoral, blinknight. And the fact you don’t understand that makes you insane. Two “consenting adults” means nothing in the face of morality. Two adults could consent to fight each other to the death. We still don’t allow that in America, nor would it be considered moral by most.

    We could trade shots like that all day. Or you can take your feelings out of this and recognize that a religious group has a right to ask for leaders that adhere to their beliefs. Unless you want one of us “bigots” heading up your local gay club. Anti-discrimination you know.

    I have a hard time understanding how a beard less than the width of a dime can conceal a weapon. Unless they can prove a prisoner’s request is harmful to himself or society, religious requests need to be respected.

    This is aside from the mounting cases against the peacefulness of Islam. A beard that short cannot pose a threat. The prison needs to demonstrate a true need or go on to fight battles that matter, like tax-paid cable TV.

    If the atheists want to start using history, let’s not forget the rest of it.

    The Star Spangled Banner says “our motto, ‘In God is our trust.”
    References to God can be found all over our national buildings and monuments, dating from fairly recent to the beginnings.
    Most national songs have some mention of God in them.
    Our founding documents also frequently contain references to God.

    Secondly, if they have a question to ask, they need to ask, “How would you feel to open meetings with prayer to ourselves?” They lack standing to ask about prayers to Allah, as they don’t believe in Him.

    Homosexuality is not a race. It is immoral actions.

    *woman he ruined

  • August 21, 2014 at 12:51pm

    @Lucretius

    That would have been moral, in accordance with the Law of Moses. A woman could not care for herself at that time. It doesn’t matter what you think about it, at that time, women were not strong enough to acquire food consistently without help. A woman who was not a virgin could not be married, for reasons that were as much public health, though only God could have known it, as they were cultural. If a woman couldn’t marry, she would have to stay in her father’s house until he died, and then her next of kin. That was a devastating prospect for a woman, whose prestige was tied to the children she brought. Marrying the women he ruined, in that case, was absolutely the most moral thing to do out of the situation.

    Yes, I am aware of those. The amount of space to post was too short. However, again, you still do not understand. What is really funny is, the concept of slavery being wrong foraged by Americans, was commonly made by Christians, using scripture to back it. What I am questioning, is not whether slavery is immoral or moral, but your understanding of the Bible, or the thoughts of God, which is lacking. Your attitude, like many others, challenge God as if you know better than He does. It’s that arrogance, that men know better than God, that has brought about this article and this conversation.

    As for women, I did not show immorality, nor did I devalue women. I am telling you, that by stepping away or de-prioritizing the job God put women here to do, they have devalued themselves, and caused immorality. The women have become immoral, on various levels. Many are not intentional.

    Just 20 years ago, someone presenting the idea that killing children with down-syndrome would have been regarded as insane. Also, only a few short years ago, abortion was rationalized as just being a group of cells, and therefore ok. Now, people are acknowledging that those babies are living, viable, and are still justifying it by saying there is no one to care for them/ the world will be too populated. Thereby, murder is ALREADY being justified as moral. Dawkins just said so in this very article.

    Humanity isn’t “progressing,” it’s moving into the very prophecy laid out in the Book of Revelations.

  • [4] August 21, 2014 at 11:47am

    SpeckChaser is correct. You both just said “society decided it was immoral, and so it was.” Therefore, by your reasoning, if society decided murder was moral, it would be.

    Keres, you clearly do not understand or know the Bible. You are parroting what you hear others say, who also do not know the Bible. The Bible never addresses slavery itself as immoral or moral. It does outline laws regarding the treatment of slaves, which in a better, more modern sense would be translated as “servant,” as in most cases, the person in question either voluntarily entered into service, or was given up by their parents, because they were too poor to feed themselves.

    On a chain of command stand point, women ARE lower than men. This is not immoral in the least. Our society has proven it’s a necessary thing, and it’s upheaval has proven devastating, not beneficial. The Biblical “chain of command” does not mean women are inferior or to be treated poorly, only that each gender has it’s own job to do. I roll my eyes when I see “woman’s reproductive rights” slogans. Women like that can’t handle the truth; that they were made to bear children. Just because we have the technology to divert what Nature’s God made to be natural, does not mean it is logical or moral to ignore natural laws.

    When God’s laws are followed, society functions with civility and cleanliness. That is the nature of the Old Testament. Compassion for the fallen is the nature of the New.

    We just read the preliminary to Hitler’s reasoning. People think he was a monster and couldn’t imagine how anyone could be so debase. This is how.

    When you eliminate God’s standards for right and wrong, anything can “justified.”

    Oh? And the Bibles were removed in the first place why? For fear of offending some “non-Christians,” their words.

    Some non-Christians have been offended, and that’s not ok, but offending Christians, perfectly ok.
