I think most everyone, including Christians wonders what Christians consider being a Christian is all about.
We find many atheists in the world who behave more like Jesus than Christians and find many Christians behaving like barbarians. Pretty much anyone can say they are or aren't a Christian and few might agree. It's the label that doesn't mean much anymore.
In all our wonderful chats here so far, I've yet to see you warrant any of those names and I hope to have not offered any myself. We should be sure to point it out if it occurs.
The only reason I can see so far is perhaps you're guilty by association, that of a conservative Christian, often meeting most if not all of those traits.
Please do make me aware of any such activity so I may see myself, thanks.
Only white men can be racist
Not according to any definition of "Racist" you can find.
I have said stuff like, "Over there, by that black person." and I was called racist.
That does seem extreme, I think we both know that's not really being a racist.
Have you been called a Racist on these forums?
I'm not religious.
I'm not surprised, I hear that a lot from conservative Christians.
Anyone who disagrees with them is either racist, misogynist, homophobic, bigot
Is this another one of those times you're pretending not to know something?
Allow me to explain, one is not racist, misogynist, homophobic or a bigot simply because they disagree with someone. You need to commit acts of racism to be a racist, commit acts of misogyny to be a misogynist, and so on. Glad I could help.
Are you saying that liberals and those who follow Radical Islam have rights and conservatives and Christians do not?
Are you a conservative Christian, Joe? Is that what you're trying to tell me?
I mean, I believe fetuses have rights but liberals do not believe that. I believe that American citizens have been granted certain rights by the constitution. I don't hate fetuses nor do I hate people in general. I do not want my right to bear arms to be taken away.
Thank you, that will help me construct a simple profile, something from which to base my responses to that conservative Christian worldview.
And I do believe that liberalism is a mental disorder
Of course, you do. Good thing you brought up the topic of mental disorders being linked to ones ideology, let's see how conservative Christianity aligns itself with sanity, or not. Stay tuned.
Radical Islam is a religion that is not in harmony with liberalism.
Liberalism embrace homosexuals. Radical Islam..., not so much.
Liberalism embrace women's rights. Radical Islam..., not so much.
Liberalism embrace infidelity in marriage (They defended President Clinton in spite of his infidelity). Radical Islam..., not so much.
Liberalism is a mental disorder
Ah, so what you're trying to tell us is that you support Radical Islam and not Liberalism.
Again, why use the second quote?
You're free to ignore it if you wish considering the first quote was sufficient.
It contains the quotes you brought up. But it finishes with this
It leads me to believe that you do not understand the difference between God and religion
So, you're claiming I'm incapable of looking up two words in the dictionary?
Any way, you believe whatever you want.
That's usually what religious people do, hence why they all have so many differing beliefs among themselves, even when they manage to derive them from exactly the same book. You know the book, the one in which Albert says is filled with childish superstitions?
Reasonable and rational people don't choose their beliefs, reality is provided to them and decides itself what they believe or understand about it.
Albert disputes you...
Einstein said "the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish."
"For me, the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions."
