Quote# 52431

(Why Don't some Christians believe in Tolerance for all?)

Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their feelings instead of their thoughts. God has only one way. He is intolerant. We must be about our Father's business, we can not be tolerant when the fate of the nation and ultimately the world is in question as it is today. Abortions, homosexuality, liberalism, sexual activity outside of marriage, cheating, lies and a host of other things are considered the norm today. All of it is against God. We cannot condone what God condemns.

Just a weirdo with self-esteem and sexual issues, armed with a powerful imaginary friend with whom he can establish telepathic communications. Belief in the supernatural and spiritual is reduced to - a mere political affiliation, combined with a dirty-minded obsession with other people's bedroom lives.. Talking about fact over emotion, but really totally unable to make a coherent argument, and aiming to replace science and logic with his petty certainties.

The Bible is a very vague document. If you cherry-pick the Bible, you can always invent your own extra-scriptural "what-if" and twist some passage to conclude that God agrees with something you already decided beforehand was true.

For example, there's no passage in the Bible that condemns abortion. But if you twist the definition of murder to include abortion, then you can claim "thou shalt not kill" means "thou shalt not commit abortion". But if God condemned abortion, He could have said so in plain words. He certainly went into all sorts of elaborate detail about who one is or isn't allowed to see naked or what animals one may eat. How can someone claim that God went into all this detail about nakedness and food, yet forgot to mention that "abortion is murder"? Aren't they just making up their own rules and pretending God agrees with them?

"Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their feelings instead of their thoughts."

Actually, I'm led about equally by both, thankyouverymuch. At least I use my brain for something other than head-stuffing.

Don't forget them forigners and non-Christains.

Then fuck him, if that's the case.

With every quote, I am more and more convinced that if their god existed, a rebellion would be in order. Who wants someone like that in charge of the universe? At least with no god around, the threat of damnation for a silly offense wouldn't be possible.

Here's an idea. How would it be if you refrained from all those naughty things, and stopped worrying about other people? That way you're not condoning and you're not being an annoying twat. If your God needs your help he'll doubtless ask for it.

So...God is basically my grandmother, only big and invisible.

"Abortions, homosexuality, liberalism, sexual activity outside of marriage, cheating, lies and a host of other things are considered the norm today."
And that's just in the churches!

"Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their feelings instead of their thoughts."
shiny mirror, etc...

a mind far far away

These 'sins' have always been the norm. They still are today in certain European nations. God's wrath hasn't poored down yet. Jesus wasn't intolerant, except of the conservative religious elite. Jesus was extremely liberal, and it would have been a great thing if he had actually existed, and we didn't have the convoluted mess in the gospels that we have today. And why do you insist that America is god's chosen nation? It never has been, and never will be. I seem to recall that Jesus was non-political. He was more concerned with the kingdom of god and not so much with the kingdoms of earth. And there's nothing wrong with empathy. Jesus was actually empathic on occasion. So read your bible, get rid of those fundy attitudes, and get with the program.

We must be about our Father's business...

I'm 37 and my dad is dead. I have business of my own to be about.

All of it is against God.

Other things against God:

1. Sugar free desserts

2. Decaf coffee

3. The Phantom Menace; Attack of the Clones; Revenge of the Sith

4. Bad weed

5. Rose Tyler

6. Multiple versions of the same TV show (CSI, I'm looking at you)

7. Product placement in movies

8. Pay toilets

9. George Clooney playing Batman

10. Star Trek: Voyager/Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

WRONG, the underlying message of the bible is love. You fail your religion

You want to hate even more people than you already do.

Your hate is quite similar to that of an uneducated Muslim fanatic. Really, you should get together with one of them and compare notes.

IMO, your god is a crab louse.

Allegory for Jesus

"Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their feelings instead of their thoughts."

No. Not really. It's for people who realize that the only way society can function without becoming excessively embittered, fractured, and cruel to one another is by accepting the aspects of other people that cannot be helped, and, basically, to be empathetic.

Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their thoughts, and want people to be more prudent about which feelings they let lead them.

" Abortions, homosexuality, liberalism, sexual activity outside of marriage, cheating, lies and a host of other things are considered the norm today."

And yet this should have no relevance to you if you are living up to your own standards. You don't need to change the world, and are in fact discouraged from it. Just chew on your own sense of moral superiority, shut up, and everything will be alright.

"We cannot condone what God condemns."

Who's asking you to condone it? You don't have to like it, just ignore it.

Tolerance is a virtue. You're not worshipping who you say you do if you deny Him virtue.

Yeah sure, and your religion does none of those things.*extreme sarcasm*

What is it with americans and their knee-jerk hatred of liberals? do non of them know what it actually means?

The very philosphy of the Inquisition.

Is your real name Torquemada, by any chance?

Tolerance is taught by those who are led by their feelings instead of their thoughts.

No, that's generally what causes irrational hatred and phobias. To overcome such aversions requires rational thought, and lots of it.

If you were actually led by your thoughts, you certainly wouldn't be spouting this crap.
