    I wouldn't be surprised if there are people who read your post and consider it persecution.

    I was thinking that as I posted it. "How many of them will complain that I don't point out the stranglehold the Muslims or the Jews have on our government". Sorry guys, when I'm chewin' ass I prefer Christian ass. Must be the Catholic schoolgirl fantasies.

    Fundamentalist are all similar whether they be Christian, Muslim, or Jewish. They have God in their pockets and that makes them superior to those who don't.

    Your thread's title is: "Why the religious right should stop whining about being persecuted?"

    Your answers: " when I'm chewin's ass I prefer Christian ass".

    Does it sounds very fair?

    NOPE. Then... you just answered your own dumb question.:rofl:

    Even an atheist like me can see Christians are unequally viewed by the media.

    My own dumb question? Do you see a '?' at the end of the thread title? Did you even read the article enough to see that that was the article title sans '?' ?

    If you think I feel guilty because I don't feel the need to point out Islamic BS or Hindu or Taoist BS think again. I don't really feel the need to be fair with my criticisms of dishonesty and insanity.

    But you whine like a pansy when your dishonesty and insanity is cited. Signature of the simple minded.

    Yes, the EVIDENCE of the atheist disturbed obsession mounts to conclusive results.

    You like to rant about atheist insanity but that's subjective. Dishonesty however, cite? Where have I been dishonest?

    Well, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, "having God in your back pocket" is hyperbole. Second, let's define what exactly fundamentalism is:

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fundamentalism

    Essentially, this means people who believe in their religious texts, e.g. The Bible as written.

    So, the negative connotation is yours.

    You don't think fundamentalism is a bad thing?

    No I do not. I have a fundamental belief in the bible, that it is the accurate word of God. Therefore, I am a fundamentalist.

    Old Testament is too easy. Let's go New.

    That whole healing the infirm with a touch thing is a bunch of BS. I mean, who can heal the sick with a touch of the hand?

    Oh yeah, Benny Hinn.

    I didn't know that was a commandment of Christianity. There is a difference between God's direct will and His permissive will.

    It was Christians who ended the slave trade, not secular humanists.

    According to the NT there are no commandments or laws of Christianity, but that's beside the point here. He didn't say Christianity or NT, he said the Bible. The Bible clearly endorses slavery and allows for the selling of his daughter.
    I'm not saying he has to sell her, just inquiring about availability.
    And it was Christians who perpetrated the slave trade for centuries before that. Clearly those who rose in the 18th and 19th centuries to end it weren't fundamentalists.

    No, I do not support slavery.
