And like said previously, this world is secular the more that can get in the way of spreading christian views the better.


What in the world are you talking about? The overwhelming majority of people in the world are religious. The overwhelming majority of Americans are christians.

This is the typical cry-victim that certain christians like to do for some reason still unknown to me.

What I'm getting at is that the world, religious or not, is sinfull. And "worldly things" are aka sinfull things in general. That's what I'm getting at. I know the world has a religious majority, but it's still worldly. If not why would there be such a problem with catholic priests and young boys and girls? -Z


The very concept of being "sinfull" is religious. You are talking as if you have authority over what is and isn't truth based on your own personal theological standpoint.

If you think we, as worldly beings, are such a bad thing, would you recommend we all point a gun to our heads and put ourselves out of our worldly misery so that we can become non-worldly beings?

To be honest, the more I read your posts, the more I think you are full of it. No offense.

I for one have never heard any Pope or christian scholar say anything except the opposite of what you are implying.

Not to start a battle of the links, but I'm tired of having to repeat myself 20 million times on a hundred things to people.

There is one example that you have never heard of. Yup, the world is a much bigger place than your house.

I say we should teach creationism and evolution with the same vigor and let the students study it for themselves and come to an educated conclusion.


Which creationism do we teach? There are thousands of creation myths out there. Oh wait, you mean we should teach the christian creation myth along with the scientific theory. Ok, I get it...

Re: World History student needs our input
Some people like to think they are persecuted even when they are not. Even even fantasize about imaginary laws that violate their rights. I wonder if this is a sign of some sort of mental illness.
