I can't validate this, but I sincerely believe most Christians have not read the bible. The violence doesn't really bother me as much as the apparent hypocrisy. If you can believe in a book that uses some rather unorthodox or violent verses and do so peacefully than I believe you have every right to practice certain aspects of your religion.

How cliche. I reserve the right to judge everyone by any standard I so please. Bit of a hard universalist, but I won't cut back or make exceptions for most cases, especially the most egregious of them all. I can't imagine taking away someone's right to judge. Are we not entitled to speak our opinions? (Perhaps not on the forum, but in western society.) I do agree that a bit more empathy is needed to understand where people are coming from, and I guess I can understand to. If God gave me a choice to go to heaven if I killed 5 gays and hell was as bad as Dante described it, than who knows what I'll do? I mean, if God hates gay, they'll be going anyway. I could always organize a group to fight against God, and whilst that may be cool, I don't think it'll be successful. Major respect to Tutu who says he'll go to hell against a homophobic god.


Edit: Don't see why anyone would report it. No arguments have sprouted nor do I believe it is in the wrong place. Religious discussions aren't chit chat ya know, they belong in general.

Lmao I like how this thread is already reported. What dont like that your notion that christianity was the "good" religion was just critiqued? People need to not get so butt hurt.
Great video people are allowed to believe anything they want as long as they dont harm or obstruct another's pursuit of happiness.

We all know that people cherry pick from the bible. See some quotes from the Old Testament. It's true that most people have never read it and will simple take away only the values that suit them anyway. If you can practice your faith without harming others, then do so. The minute that your values start to negatively affect other people it becomes a problem. Radicals are bad for any group, Islam being no exception.

I think that this video is extremely interesting.

A couple of guys disguise the Bible as the Koran, and read some of the more violent ideals contained within. Of course the subjects are told that this is being read from the Koran and react negatively, and then are subsequently surprised when it's the Bible.

It's Bobsagget. I think it's better to ignore quite honestly.

Yes everybody have their own rights (opinion), killing people is not right, God didn't say people can kill. , I hope you understand.

Well said. One should bear in mind how primitive human societies were at the time those books were written before taking some of it literally.
Therein lies the problem with fundamentalists.

Thank you. That' really not cool but i guess some people need the extreme measures to check their views.
