saberXray: Silverstaff:

Or you know, that could only be binding on one denomination.  I know the Catholic Church likes to claim it's the only valid form of Christianity, but an awful lot of Christians aren't on board with that claim.

It's just as fair as when the enlightened Fark Atheists paint all Christians with the same brush.

Or when the semi-agnostics do the same with all "enlightened Fark Atheists."

It's true that I don't have nice liberal haute-bourgeois Episcopalians specifically in mind when I criticize Christianity, but they're weird.

But then the "Old Testament" does say that God hates "men who lie with men" (Leviticus 20:13), though that's part of the old Law that's not binding on Christians. Fundies who claim otherwise should be following the rest of Leviticus, including making sin offerings (Lev. 4), and eating only "clean" animals (Lev. 11)  and how to treat people with skin diseases (Lev. 13), etc. etc etc. Or are they just "cafeteria Christians" who select out only a few parts of the Bible they feel ike following, hmmmm?!?

If you claim to follow the whole Bible as the word of God then dangnabbit follow the whole Bible as the word of God, including the parts that are inconvenient given today's lifestyles. (Though I will allow that modern ways of solid waste disposal obviate Deuteronomy 23:12-13.) You should especially follow the words of Jesus in Matthew 22:39, which I should not have to quote for any real believer in "the Son of God."

'Papa' Monzano, the ruthless dictator of San Lorenzo who impaled opponents on hooks and outlawed the practice of Bokononism, lay dying in his bed and refusing Christian priests, he said  "I am a member of the Bokononist faith...Get out, you stinking Christian."

Under our thin public facade, we are what we pretend to hate the most.

lockers: Heliovdrake: To be fair Christianity is more in line with communism then capitalism

Except for that whole opiate for the masses thing and all.

Marx only called religion the opiate of the masses because television hadn't been invented yet.
