    As I have written several times, I have nothing against Christians or Christianity. My problem is with bigotry. Not all Christians are bigot.

    I think there is a flag on the play. You hate God and anyone who follows him. This is quite apparent from your posts. At least be honest about you stance.

    You're really showing your abysmal ignorance of religion, theology and the Bible. Stop, before you embarrass yourself. Oops. Too late.

    All these negative responses will do nothing to further the cause of Christ. I perused the article, the post, and the posts and thought leaving it lay was the most prudent thing to do.

    The OP is not going to be won over by attacking his OP or him.

    To the OP, I am sorry you feel that way. I wish you could see the hope of a better future as we do. I am also sorry you received such harsh responses.

    I'm ignorant because I disagree with you. I'm a liberal because I disagree with Vlad. Neither of you present any evidence to back your statements. Instead you resort to personal attacks rather than address the issues raised in the article. Neither of your arguments addresses the contention of the article. If anything, you demonstrate the type of Christian bigotry discussed in the article. As the article states, "Christian bigotry usually invisible to the Christian bigot".

    Are you familiar with what the Pharisees said about Jesus? It's real similar to what you've been saying about me. Do you remember what the people of Capurnam said when Jesus started to preach? Same arguments.

    Bigotry is based on ignorance.

    What I don't understand is how some Christians ignore the New Testament, and embrace the Old, when it comes to hatred. Jesus was the epitome of love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Isn't that what makes someone a Christian? Believing in the words and deeds of Jesus? Living one's life as best one can according to his teachings?

    In just about any place/organization where people come together there are those who will be what others consider to be bigots. Their estimate may or may not be accurate.

    Jesus is the last definitive Word of divine truth on any matter. His Word is authority for those who follow him. The OT and NT are subordinate to what he said.

    There are issues to which Jesus did not speak precisely. The principles he enunciated for believers apply. In reference to issues such as homosexuality, same-sex marriage, etc., at no time did Jesus ever set aside or give reason for the setting aside of any OT or NT prohibitions. Jesus specifically castigated those persons and groups that failed to receive his teachings. Furthermore he specifically described in detail the consequences for those who rejected/reject his teachings.

    It is not bigotry for the followers of Jesus to affirm what He himself taught. It is faithfulness that is to be expected of those who follow Him. If others think otherwise, it is simply what they think. That is all. What they think is not the consideration for those who follow Christ. For those who follow Christ, what matters is what Jesus said. His Word is the final authority in the life of the believer. What unbelievers think, etc. is of no consequence in the faith and practice of the Church.

    Who do you think you're kidding? In today's presumably laissez faire (socialist) world a primary form of intellectual attack is to label the target as a bigot. The Christ warned His followers, 'He who is not for Me is against Me.' Consequently what you say you are, and what you actually are, are each blatantly obvious.

    I'm anti-bad doctrine. A lot of the Christian doctrines are bad. Does that make me anti-Christian?

    Yeah, right, Smack! :freak:

    When it comes to 20/20 vision I'll be perfectly candid with you, ....... Intellectually, of course, I've yet to see you demonstrate anything even close to precision thinking. I honestly believe you'd be doing well to see anything - including your TV - half as clearly as I do. (But, that's not going to shut you up, now, is it!) ;)

    Your article is utter bull**** as is your premise.

    Here is a quote from the article.

    "So it's common among Christians to believe that Christians are better than other people"

    The author gives no proof that this is true.

    The article and your thread are simply made up anecdotes about how horrible Christians are.

    I don't think you are fooling anybody here.

    If you have a problem with bigotry as you say, but not with Christianity, why do you even bring up Christianity?

    Let me explain my beliefs about myself as a Christian.

    I'm not better than anybody and I am worse than most. It's not about me it is about God, Jesus work on the cross, and His mercy and grace towards me and all of his people.

    If this is a real question in your mind, and I'm not doubting that it is, you really have no idea what scripture says. I would encourage you to discard all your preconceived ideas and start over. Read ALL of scripture, with an open mind, and then decide for yourself what you believe to be true.
