Fundies are delicate flowers, Pleroo. After all, their faith is based on the brittle pages of an old book.

If they dispute the book, their flimsy faith collapses. So, they dare not.

Poor things.

Easy to understand. It is The same ones who strongly support homosexuality. Fact check. Check out the largest topic. It is about homosexuality. Sex is their god and the Bible and the Word are its enemy.

This one actually did make me laugh out loud! What places your mind goes.

I doubt that there is one single poster on this entire R&S forum whose reason for posting is that they "strongly support homosexuality". Sexual orientation is not something you support or don't support.

You are talking about the people who strongly support inclusion and acceptance of people. Some who support inclusion and acceptance are Christians and some of them are not. That you DON'T support such things is disturbing to the rest of us no matter what our spiritual identity.

The Bible is only anyone's enemy to the extent that it is used as the mask from behind which some hide their own prejudices by trying to pawn them off as "the Word of God".

The downside for you is that the more you try to claim this, the more transparent the mask becomes. We can see you.

Translated ...... I have issues with sex,it owns me, so i resist it and treat it like it's an enemy of God because i think God feels the same way about it that i do.

I find that certain people make assumptions or falsely accuse others, it's the way they operate.
And, God forbid, that you would have a different thought or perspective to what is believed.

Are you being serious? A God of "immeasurable love from which everything flows" to you is small in your mind? A God who doesn't kill people, or command others to kill in it's name is small to you? Do you realize that you sound like the kid on the playground insisting that his dad can beat everyone else's dad up?

Love has no boundaries and its power is unlimited.
Now, a god of wrath and vengeance, that's tiny.
