Quote# 7570

Nevertheless, say anything about Christians its ok. We have a loooonnnnggg history of turning the other cheek instead of picking up the swords that were given to us by our Master Jesus and putting them to good use.

Cue customary response to \"Christians always peaceful\" post...

Crusades.
Inquisition.

Awaiting traditional \"No true Christian\" rebuttal...

And aren't you just so sad that you're not allowed to kill people for saying mean things about you?

The Dark Ages.
Herecy trials.
Witch trials.
The Inquisitions.
The near "perfect" eradication of Native Americans.
Persecution complex.

Turning the other cheek is meant to be done while smiling benevolently. Not while whining about being persecuted because you are not allowed to persecute others.

Saying things about others IS allowed, you are just not allowed to act upon your prejudices. I can say that I find the idea of two men having sex a bit icky. But that is my personal opinion, end of story. I have no right to try to circumscribe their lives, just because I find it icky. I find the presence of a whole chicken carcase on the dinner plate much more icky, but I'm not trying to outlaw the eating of whole chickens, just because it makes me feel sick.

as I recall, not once did Jesus tell people to pick up weapons and kill people.

the distant descendants of his followers did that. the ones with mental defects.

"Swords given by Master Jesus..."
There is so much pure wrong with this phrase that I don't even know what to say. Go read some history books. Go read your own fucking scripture, damn it! And stop whining.

The CHURCH demanded death and conversion under the sword. THE CHURCH!

Believe in God or Jesus if you wish but quit spouting off edicts of the church. God's last command to kill was over 2000 years ago and Jesus never suggested such a thing.

So stop trying to remake your Jesus into Conan or Elric for Christs sake if not your own.
