Funny, I thought you were the Christian.So maybe it's time for you to follow your beliefs, and "judge not, let thee be judged".
Oh please explain the difference between religious freedom and religious tolerance. And its funny how you would say that a story in the Bible that has to deal with how Jesus acted with complete tolerance toward those who demonstrated no tolerance towards him "has nothing to do with tolerance.""Mere tolerance is a virtue to those who don't believe in anything."
And btw, turning the other cheek has nothing to do with tolerance.
I believe in religious freedom, not religious tolerance. They're not the same.
What is evasive about me defending to the death, your right to freely worship, even though I may disagree with it? I would love to hear it.This is an evasive answer of a very deceptive kind.
Your point is the people in history have exaggerated the atrocities committed by your church, and yet they still occurred. It sounds like you might be missing the point.Thus is the fine art of missing the point.
You do seem to share the staunch anti-Christian fervor of the Communists.
In any case, I'm done with this charade of yours.
In other words, you realize you are losing so you are trying to bow out with as much of your pride intact as possible. In order to do so, you wish to accuse me of being a communist, which I am not, and has nothing to do with the discussion. It is a cheap rhetorical trick aimed at derailing the discussion at best. Please do remember that it was pride and inhospitality that were the true sins of Sodom.
I'm anti-religious intolerance. It's not Christian to be intolerant to your fellow man by condemning him through his sins. That is the opposite of what Jesus taught. Which was namely to love God and to love your fellow man as yourself. And as you aren't even holding yourself responsible for a lie you clearly told in front of anyone who can read, I doubt it is your place to condemn what you percieve as the sins of anyone else. That is the charade here. People who practice a Christianity that has nothing to do with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
