    Very good idea. As you say, all we get from him is silly flamebait threads, attacking various aspects of Christianity in a puerile and superficial way. It's a bore and an irritant but not really a pretext for any rational discussion.

    There is no such thing as a moral religion.

    "puerile and superficial way."

    Now you are just flat out lying.

    That or this quote applies perfectly to you.

    I do not agree.

    I see those religions that are not idol worshiping cults like Christianity and Islam and which seek/preach knowledge and wisdom as more moral than those named.

    Gnostic Christianity and Buddhism seem to be the best.

    Codified morality has an inherent inability to adapt to the situation.

    Why does this not make sense to you? I can tell the homeless guy on the corner is preaching by his words and actions, but I don't know what about.

    How does that work?
    'puerile' and 'superficial' are both qualitative judgments made by the poster. The only way you could possibly accuse him of lying about his own observation is if you could read his thoughts.

    So what do we call those who talk much yet say little I wonder...

    See, here is where you are flat out wrong, given that Christianity has as one of its core tenants the whole no worshiping idols thing...

    If you look at the age of the pope

    all of his minions

    all of the followers

    I would have thought the answer was obvious

    I do not agree.

    Show a situation where the Golden Rule cannot adapt so as I can see exactly what you mean.

    You are correct that Christians do not know how to worship. They worship with lying tonges instead of good deeds.

    That aside.

    Walk into any Christian establishment. What do you see if not a cross that is idolized and used to create a false sense of debt to a guy that likely never existed. Those craven images and the guy they represent are idol worshiped.

    God is a title and once you name a God, you are an idol worshiper of the mental image you have created of your idolized God.

    Is that a fact? So no Christian does good deeds?

    Certainly you can back this with facts... after all, a "good person" such as yourself would certainly never utter a falsehood, would you?

    Meanwhile, I'm sure your preferred religion is all about good deeds and has never done ANYTHING considered evil at all...

    Easy - what do you do with folks who are too dangerous to be let back into society (serial killers, child rapists, etc) - "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" would seem to indicate you should give them a pass and let them free... which then puts others at risk once again.

    No real winning scenario there.

    A masochist should not treat people as they would like to be treated themselves.

    How many good deeds are required to negate the intolerance, homophobia and misogyny that is the Christian staple and preferred ideology?

    I back it up above. Can you refute what I put?

    To your last.
    As Jesus said, do not call me good. Only God is good.

    I am not as bad as Christians though. I do not discriminate and denigrate without a just cause the way they do against gays and women.

    Hell yes, and proud of it.

    What we do is considered evil by the corrupted institutions and people we talk about.

    We are considered quite good though by the, in this case, women and gays that are victimized by the corrupted religions that oppress them without a just cause.

    Are you all in on that or do you stand with the corrupted ones?


    Let me ignore child rapist here as I do not want to point to Christianity and the fact that they protect their pedophile priests and preachers. That is a whole other discussion.

    As to killers.

    If I was to do unto others, and give them the protection I want from killers, I would remove them from society in the most humane way possible. A victims response to a killer is to try to not be killed and they will use violence and death if required. I would remove the killer from that potentially lethal situation of his own inadvertent or insane causing.

    Do you approve and recognize that that is a good way to apply the Golden Rule to all involved?

    The same formula could be applied to all types of dangerous criminal, even those bastard pedophile priests.

    1) it is not the "preferred ideology" - it is the ideology of those that would try to use it as a weapon against their fellow man (and will get their comeuppance when they face judgement)

    2) You can insert any religion in place of Christianity, and the same would hold true... you can put virtually ANY institution of rules in its place and it would still hold true.

    No, you made an assertion. You need to cite evidence and/or examples to back up your point.

    Actually, those that bother to actually study the bible realize that it doesn't call anyone to discriminate or denigrate homosexuality.

    Mm, superiority complex... interesting.

    What religious sect do you claim to be a part of, then (or lack thereof as it may be)?

    What would you consider a "just cause" for oppressing someone?

    So in order to "adapt" the Golden Rule, you need to apply a double standard to it (in this case, you deem killing them in a humane way as sufficiently close to not wishing yourself to be killed).

    An interesting scapegoat, but a scapegoat none the less.
