I'm a Christian but I only meditate through the bible, and I do not go to church since every denomination does not lead you tio God but something else. You apparently don't know your history or politics. You are too open-minded and you actually think these SINS should be accepted?

In the bible God specifically says he's against gay marriage, abortion, and anything that has to do with smoking. Are you a SATAN WORSHIPPER???


I know that you're Christian - you said it pretty clearly! I was asking whether you were Catholic.
Too open-minded! That's interesting! Last time I checked, it's good to be as open-minded as possible and only judge things once you fully understand them - which you don't seem to be doing.
Personally, I don't see gay marriage or abortion (in certain cases) as being sinful.

The Bible wasn't written by God himself, it was written by a bunch of misogynists and has plenty of references to the inferiority of women. That doesn't mean that it's right or true. Think of it this way - gay people exist naturally. If God disliked homosexuality so much - gay men and women wouldn't even exist.

A Satan worshipper? My God, no xD Just because someone isn't against gay marriage and abortion, that automatically makes them a theistic Satanist? For your information - I'm actually Russian Orthodox. As in, Christian.

Here we go with the religious "debates" again >.<"...

it's funny how most people respond to religion instead of corporation or government... Sigh...

Warning: Long Post in Spoiler command - How to overcome "fear of the internet" and some basic tips for caution!



Woah! Long post...amazing what i can do in 2 minutes.

Religious debate spoilered:


In reply to popcornpuffs
Being open-minded and being open to freedom of choice does NOT mean that people agree with adultery or other "crimes", as you've so neatly put it. Freedom of choice allows you to agree with what you beleive in. Someone's "good" choice may well be someone else hell. And your right, We can't really determine right from wrong. What is right and wrong to us is only right or wrong because society has disciplined and manipulated our minds through beliefs brought forth by education, religion and justification - or a mash-up of all thress of these and other factors.

I'm not a Christian, but I am a Muslim, and i do follow and accept what the Quraan mentions as "right" most of the time. However, a lot of things are questionable from the holy books because of the way the present morals and beliefs are conveyed and embedded into our day-to-day thoughts from an early age - especially in the western society. For example, some people may see the ceremonial event of sacrificing an animal for religious reasons as animal cruelty and irrelevant to the present day idealistics, whereas others see it as a way of pleasing their God. Yes, God is timeless and He sees and judges the actions of his followers equally, despite the time era they are in.

"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Jeremiah 1:5" - How exactly does this imply that abortion isn't allowed? I don't know much about Christianity, but I've done my research. Does God not allow free will? And if he does, then do you not beleive in destiny? God knows what your decision will be before you make it, and lets you follow Him by your own free will. He is not a dictator that will command a person to burn in hell if He is not obeyed. Sound a little complicated? Basically, if you make a decision to abort your child, then He would know of this decision before you make it, but He lets you make the decision by your own free will, right? And this is where destiny comes in... Maybe that child just wasn't supposed to come into being in this world, and that was what God's true wish was. Maybe He wanted the child to return to him before the physical realm because this child would have been corrupted in the future, etc. If God really wanted that child to "exist", then maybe He wouldn't have allowed such a Fate for the unborn.

As for the gay theory... I agree with you since I've already said that society does form our present selves. And if we go onto the destiny part again, then maybe you can understand that God did not intercept this free will since a worse outcome could have occurred. Islam doesn't permit gay marriages, or gays for that fact, but what is amazing is that the ones who are true to the religion will not be "manipulated" into debating the authenticity and teachings of their religion. You have to accept that times are changing,a not everything can be followed as direct as it would have been back when the revelation occurred. You have a different society now and different perceptions compared to hundreds of years ago. Also, consider that destiny plays a big part in our lives, especially if your religious, and there are many things that cannot be explained unless you have conversed with God yourself.

A lot of the time in over-religious and non-religious people, ignorance and arrogance is given way. Their beliefs and morals are clouded by their narrow-mindedness and inability to analyse and justify the bigger picture - as what you are doing here. You simply cannot follow a book that was written over hundreds of years ago and still think you can fit into and understand society today. By all means, beleive what you want to beleive in, but keep and open mind about things because God is not one who insists on hatred and malice, but rather the opposite - Love and peace - at least, that's what I've interpreted through all my education.

honestly this is why i can't stand religion people forcing their ideology on others and saying it's a just cause, whats wrong with gay marriage?, people have been abusing marijuana for the longest time so legalizing it has only positive effects because with legalized marijuana the government has control not the street dealers causing dealers to lose their clients which would also cause a decrease in crime.... wow look at all those horrible effects people may think the government sucks but i can guarantee you that an anarchistic society would be hell on earth more so than tyrants and dictators, religion is a belief system to help people live a better life not like this cult brainwashing bullshit that's going on here, books like the bible deliver a message to people like jesus and his parables it's the message not the content that you are supposed to take out of it.....

I have no faith. but internet is not an evil entity, but many religious people (all religions) see it as a threat.
and many middle eastern radicals, are deeply jealous of the west's easy acces and use of Technologhy that they curse it, and all those who have the privelige.

Don't get me wrong, i think obama is a giant quife, an ass hole, a moron. BUT Immigration should be made more accesable!! it takes a fucking 10 year deportation to be approved for a damn green card in many cases!! thats the law, unless you have legal blood relatives or a spouse to protest!

and as far as mexican illegals go... for someone to simply stuff you in a hot trunk to come across the border, you pay the driver $2500-$3000 american dollars!!
It's not cheap or easy for any side of the equation damnit!
passports are in limited access for most of the countries that immigrate here. its pricey, lengthy, and very difficult. accepting immigrants only adds jobs, it does not decrease the american dollar ASS HOLE!

Overly religous people are fearful of everything! abortion is like eating chicken eggs, its the same concept.

My Reply to Religion Vs. Internet:
Hmm maybe my original post was too ambiguous lol... I think religion is necessary to maintain control, but I don't agree with EVERYTHING religion brings to it, like scaring people into submission. For example: when people are scared to go on the internet "because it is the devil" which are my grandmother's own words. When religion plays a part in your life for so long and you take it too seriously, it can make you close your mind to other things.

I agree that the internet can be a creepy place if you do not have the wisdom to navigate it correctly, but I don't think that any GOD said: "Internet = Bad". Most religions emphasize gaining wisdom/enlightenment so I can't see how being close-minded contributes to gaining wisdom.

In the end, I believe that religion should definitely be taken in moderation in order to ensure that you are not brainwashed by extremist views yet are controlled enough to be in-step with social expectations. if that makes any sense...

The internet is a scary place but enjoyable. I have seen so many people get messed up from the internet. It means sites they are not suppose to see all the way to scams for making money. These are the bad things. The good things is it can be a fun place full of information, and some great places to visit like crunchyroll. Overall, I stay away from the bad sites and look to all the legal sites and I should do just fine. BTW Half of you is already on the internet anyways. If you have medical records they go to a particular totally safe medical site that nobody can access so wherever you go. You are on the internet.
