Christians can act a fool and do all sorts of bad behavior to downright evil and then justify it with their religion. Pretty sick don't you think?
If he has issues with fundamentalists, as many people on this planet do, and should, then why do you feel it's your place to fire hatred and belittling insults at him for it? It's none of your business unless you are the fundamentalist he is targeting.
Of course they are not pretty...it's a direct reflection of what fundamentalism is...and fundamentalism is not pretty. It's horrific in fact.

No I did not answer my own question to you. Show me where I have falsely accused a fundamentalist? If a fundamentalist is scientifically illiterate I will call them out on it when they start showing their complete and utter science ignorance. If they are dishonest as every single one I have encounter is...then I will call them out on it. Fundamental christians are disgusting to the core and act just as you did in your petty word attack on that poster.

I hope you now realize why people don't view fundamentalism favorably

Thanks for showing everyone what your religion teaches. Hate, condemnation and judgement against others simply because they don't follow your way of interpreting the bible or developing spiritually.

The only scathing comments have come from you not me. Nice try but you failed.
My christianity involves doing as well as believing. Mike's is about believing once and getting your ticket punched to go to heaven and never being concerned about being a follower of Christ.

He is the one that is disingenuous. Every post he has ever made has been an apologetic for the orthodox way of Christianity which has killed more people, disenfranchised others, destroyed multiple alternate texts that may have enriched our understanding of early Christian diverse ideas, radicalized and made permanent enemies of a huge segment of Muslims, and destroyed individual lives with its judgmental views on women, blacks, homosexuals and atheists.

And he shows his "pride" in his posts that lack any compassion for those that are disenfranchised.

And now I can see he is "winning" non-believers over!! It is a pity, a shame, and a disgrace to Jesus Christ.

I do not mind the name calling one bit.

If you are going to judge people for something then maybe you wanna try and not do the exact same thing. Which you did here by saying "what a miserable excuse you are as a "christ follower"
Oh the pot calling the kettle black backfired I see. I wanted Mike55 to see exactly how judgmental his words were. So he can say this "what a miserable excuse you are as a "christ follower" but when I turn the tables on him it's all of a sudden not OK? Yep just how fundamentalists think...no logic at all.

Hate to break it to you but fundamentalists are exactly to blame for a lot of the bad that has happened to humanity. Oppression of human rights and utter ignorance displayed by fundamentalist have harmed humanity for centuries.

Grow up, Jeff. I'm serious. "B-b-but they do it too!" is incredibly immature.

Lol....really? Warden is one of the most honest posters on this board. He says what he thinks and lets the chips fall where they may.

As for the rest of that foot stomp.....it's obvious you were upset and needed to lash out. I suggest, the next time your blood pressure is raised, a nice, brisk walk. It's healthier than calling someone names on the internet. Which doesn't do much to promote your argument. Unless you are five.

Unless it's Dresden, right. You people overlook his constant name calling and false accusations, such as 'Godless Bible idolators' or 'Paul worshipers', or here's his favorite - 'Pharisees'. All aimed at fundamentalists.

Well, I said what I thought and I don't care how you, or anyone else feels about it. What a bunch of hypocrites some of you people are.

Okay, that's it. We're done here. If I ever want one of your suggestions, I'll be sure to let you know. That will be, let's see . . . hmmm. . . never.

And yes, it is seen and read through out this forum, sad but true !!
Sad to see you reveling in the bad behavior of a Christian no matter how much you agree with him.

You come off a a self-righteous loud mouth pompous "christ follower" hypocrite who is unable to take responsibility for your utter disgraceful hypocrite posts against Warden.

Lol......One exchange and you've declared we're done? Really?

How very authoritarian of you. Too bad for you I'm a big fan of the First Amendment and expressing my opinion and and am rarely silenced by authoritarian-type personalities.

Here's an article on this very issue. It's by Frank Viola. He's pretty good.
