This thread reminded me that it is time for me to change my forum signature.

Christianity claims the moral high ground it its rhetoric. It has long since abandoned the moral high ground in its practices

Ah, yes. The "No True Scotsman Christian" copout.
We see that in order to claim the moral high ground, Christians have to lie to themselves. But this very refusal of Christians to admit that Christianity has been a source of evil is, itself, a serious moral failure of Christianity.

Group one: Regular Sunday go meetin fundi NT believers who pray regularly, read the Bible daily, work, attend religious functions often; i.e. your hated Biblio-fundies.
Group two. Rabble rousing pleasure seeking, non-working ne-er go to church, ne-er read a Bible, bunny hopper sex practitioners of about any and all who one can entice, regular bar customers, pot smoking, street occupiers, infrequently home, etc.
Group three: Shariah practicing, go-by-the Koran, Haddith & Sunnahs, majority in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, etc,
Group four: Old Soviet Union leaders, police, atheistic minded military, politician, non church going, secularistic, etc.
Group five. Secularist college student
Group six: Mexican RRC oriented, non-Biblicalistic, city dweller
Group seven: Wall Street Occupiers
Group eight: Gay rightists seeking marriage perks, etc
Group nine: Ultra liberal Democrats
Group ten: RCC/Voodoo practicing Haitian etc.
Group eleven. Folks who use vulgar and rough speech, cursing, etc. or folks who never curse, never practice what would be considered rough and vulgar speech.
So on and so forth.
Well, you have left me out. I don't fit into any of those groups. You have also left out most of my friends and acquaintances. Perhaps you have left out most of the population.
Either you are telling deliberate malicious lies, or you are very ignorant about people. Assuming the latter, I suggest that you get out more and try to meet and have conversations with a wider variety of people.

My "summary"
Distrust anyone or any group that claims the moral high ground.
Those who occupy the moral high ground demonstrate this in their behavior, not in their claims.
