Quote# 87562

Well, Elizabeth, currently around 105,000 Christians are murdered every year by any number of non-Christian entities. Over 57 nations ban the preaching of Jesus Christ. Of those, a number ban the possession of the Holy Bible. In 'real' Islamic states, one born into a Muslim family who recants that and accepts Jesus Christ is considered an infidel and the 'family' is legally protected if they stone the convert to death.

So, tell me again why we should NOT ban religions in our Country that are actively engaged in genocide of the Christians in Africa, Middle East, and the Islamic crescent of states?

Fawful has seen God has a vagina on top of his penis

Oh, boo-hoo-hoo. The same people out to kill Christians are also out to kill atheists, intellectuals and women who wear lipstick. This coming from an atheist with a Bachelor's and a tube of Maybeline's "On The Mauve" in her purse.

....Tell me again why these countries should NOT ban the preaching of Jesus Christ?

So, tell me again why we should NOT ban religions in our Country

Because we have something called the Constitution.

And, my mommy always told me "just because Tommy does something that's wrong doesn't mean it's right for you to do it too, it's still wrong".

I listened to mommy. Maybe I should send her around your place.

[citation needed]

also, remember that the USA has no state religion, and the right of free worship. what you're suggesting is unconstitutional... just sayin'

You would if you could, that's the message we hear loud and clear from fundamentalist Christianity.
If you had your way, very soon afterwards, you'd have all decisions for the population decided by church elders.
Blood would run, churchs would vie for leadership and America would become a wasteland eventually splitting into several torture states.

That this hasn't happened yet has only one reason. You are not a nation formed or ran on theocratic nonsence. You lot have been locked away from this by your constitution, laws and enforcment of same.

In fact it's interesting you mention Africa,, check into who's killing who before your next rant.

So, you think they are right in banning the free exercise of a religion? You want to bring back the Spanish Inquisition.

There are Christians that are actively engaged in genocide of the Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and atheists in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, North America and Oceania, you know.

You do know that the largest Islamic country in the world is Indonesia, right?

Worldwide, morality would be improved immensely if we could ban anything and everything that even remotely resembles religion.

5/28/2012 12:25:57 PM


How many "non-Christian entities" do christians kill each year..... bet it's alot more.

5/28/2012 12:28:39 PM


Because Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. That's why.

5/28/2012 12:32:22 PM

Not Today

So the solution to dealing with countries that ban your religion is to ban their's here?

5/28/2012 12:32:36 PM


First Amendment, Benny.

Can you list a single civilized country which bans Christianity and persecutes Christians?




...I thought not.

Huge citation needed.
Please name one state where preaching of Jesus Christ is banned.
Name one where possession of "the holy bible" is banned.

The only Muslim countries I know of that do not allow Christian churches are Saudi Arabia and (maybe) Afghanistan.

Lots of Muslim countries have stonking great cathedrals.

5/28/2012 2:16:01 PM


First, citation f*ckin' well needed.

Second, you're advocating for the very behavior you're complaining about in others.

Together, that makes you an idiot AND an hypocrit. Congrats.

This man operates on a New York mentality.

"The only way to deal with someone who is psychotic is that you have to be more psychotic." XD

5/28/2012 2:48:39 PM

Thinking Allowed

Because it would violate the First Amendment.

5/28/2012 3:08:37 PM


"around 105,000 Christians are murdered every year"

Citation very much fucking needed. Fundies keep trotting out this canard but I've never once seen them source it.

Secondly, see the Constitution.

5/28/2012 3:21:50 PM


Stop Lying.

You aren't doing it for Christ or anyone else but yourselves!

5/28/2012 3:26:37 PM


Cuz based on that criteria you would have to ban your own? Just a thought. Oh, and it would make your founding fathers cry manly tears.

5/28/2012 3:29:30 PM


Inquisition? Crusades? Or do you prefer "Kill 'em all....God will know His own?" Other than that we have that thingy here in the U.S. about religion. You ought to look it up. I'm thankful there are Christians who are accepting of us non-Christian folk (makes me think there is hope for humanity) and do not buy into the persecution complex many of you crave. You fundies hate the thought of 'peace' don't you?

5/28/2012 3:55:32 PM


You know, Ben, if you engaged your brain, you could answer your own question.

5/28/2012 4:26:25 PM


First of all, a citation is needed to back up all of your claims. Secondly, we have this thing called the first amendment of the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution. Ever heard of it?
