Good advice DB. Although I can't blame JoJo . Chris is brutal on christianity. Must have got caught up in one of those catholic priest sex scandals!

Seriously though, lumping evangelical christianity in with the likes of 12th century catholic crusades or muslim extemists who are wiping out entire villages in North Africa today, is like equating a random thunderstorm to hurrican Ike.
We have our nutcases(Jimmy Swaggart) but for the most part we help those who are hurting and in need. Almost always, here in the south, your evangelical fundamentalist churchs are the first on the scene after disasters with immediate needs items and also long term projects like rebuilding homes in New Orleans.
Being in Seattle , Chris has a long distance view of us and the resulting prejudice comes thru loud and clear.

I will also agree with Chris, religion is responsible for much of the death and destruction in the world.( religion- man's attempt to reach God of his own accord)

Contrast that with true christianity - God reaching out to man thru His Son Jesus Christ to save man from his lost condition.

Don't mean to get preachy, but the points and contrasts need to be made and understood.

Folks who want to gloss over this and not recognize the difference are doing themselves a disservice in the long run.

You may have earned your citizenship by being a "Dog of war", it does not however make you master of the house, you are just another punk with a passport so get over yourself. You have a passport, I'm happy for you, now take it seriously and learn some tolerance for other peoples views, read the constitution you took an oath to defend and stop being a hypocrite.

Unless you are 200 years old that is simply not possible, my last passport had 26 pages added to it because the original pages were filled, you know squat about me boy. Mommy and daddy (if one is known) moved you around a little, bad people shot one another and scared little Jojo, luckily you were then in a place that the US took pity on and offered you the chance to serve in the military and get out. Good on you son, now go to the back of the room, sit down and shut up. You preach at everyone about how they should feel about the country they grew up in, you are a visitor here, your children, if we are unfortunate enough that you procreate, will have a grip on life here but you, I doubt you ever will.

This country was founded on the ideas that you abhor, religious tolerance, freedom of speach, a government by and for the people. Read the document you took an oath to defent son and get off the soapbox.

I am not brutal on Christianity, I am brutal on Jojo becasue he embodies everything I despise. I have studied religion all my life, it is a kind of hobby, I am one of thos epeople who can't read fiction but will read a book discussing comparative religion or the origins of the Dead Sea Scrolls for hours. Jojo's version of Christainity is like the Talibans version of Islam, personally I would like to move all zelots to an island someplace and let them beat eachother to death and leave the rest of us alone.

The teachings of Christ are fantastic, he was a visionary prophet and the lessons we can learn from those teachings are amazing, we can also twist the bible to justify the most horrendous human suffering imaginable. I feel it is the duty of anyone who has studied the bible to do what they can to prevent it from being misintrepreted and used for evil. Jojo and his fellow nutjobs have warped the teachings of the bible to support thier vision of an evil world filled with suffering and punishments, they ae the Spanish Inquisitors of our time. If I believed that the bible was actually the direct word of god, I would have to believe jojo and his ilk to be servants of satan- fortunately I just think he is a poor misguided child, scared of being alone in the dark and lashing out at the other kids who are standing between him and a nightlight.

It was a preist at one of the churches I went to that was buggering little boys, not me though. Two years back the courts awarded all the boys some 6 figure sum, had I known I would have stood in line!

This country was founded on the principles of the Bible, not the Koran. What makes America strong are those principles that you despise. This country did not prosper because of 'progressive humanistic ideas' you profess. This country prospered because of the principles of Biblical authority.

You continue to lie about the founding fathers of this country, who would have had you shot for treachery if they were alive. Your ideas and beliefs are quintessential examples of what is tearing this country apart. Your liberal ideas are the cancer that is causing this country to fall apart.

Notice when America really started spiralling down the drain. It was during the 60's when hippies like you started.

So, you despise my beleifs, fine, the feeling is mutual. I just hope I can save those 2 children of yours from your stupidity.

This isn't exactly toning things done guys. Step away from the keyboard until you can play nice! We've already got Mikey stinking up the place with his crap, we don't need more of it! I'd hate for you both to have to be put on moderation...

Now apologize.

Exactly. Try to make it a positive one. Someone has to make the first move. Wouldn't it be true to your faith to be the first one to try? And the last one to quit trying?

Please.

I'm sure that your whining will continue long after I tire of truth squadding all of your factual errors and propagandizing, which are only slightly more irritating than your usual mouth-breathing comments....

Nasty! It looks like Mikey's had his feelings hurt! The dumbass is turning out to be quite the hostile little prick. I sure hope you aren't taking out all of this frustration and anger on your wife and kids. Hopefully you are just bottling it all up inside, building up that blood pressure, stressing out about it - and it's just a matter of time before something pops.

Make sure you get some extra life insurance while you can - to help the Widow Saunders raise her kids!

Drop dead, Mikey!

Mikey, go do and finish your conversion. Your time and skills are better suited to that activity since you are not making a lot of sense here.
