And its NOT Christians behind these sick and disgusting atrocities. You need to look at the real sickness in this world and stop portraying Christians as the "sick" ones.

Ill have you know that we pray for these people and acts. And it matters not that we disagree with gay marriage, we still love gay people, regardless. LOVE.
Actually, Christians have historically done and continue to do most of that. For a current example, drug cartels in Mexico have killed 50,000+ people in some of the most horrific ways imaginable and commit basically all of those crimes.

They are (as is the rest of Mexican society) largely comprised of religious Christians, to the point that they often use Christian imagery in cartel propaganda.

Of course, I'm sure you'll claim they're not "true" Christians. Perhaps you're right. However, in that case the claim that others aren't "true" Muslims, Atheists, (or perhaps, Scotsmen) must be true as well. You can't have it both ways.

Prayer is a way to do nothing, and still think you're helping.

Keep praying.

"Illinois governor threatens to "rip economic guts out of Indiana" after RFRA controversy"

Illinois will have to solve their corruption (Chicago), debt, and excessive taxation before they have any hope of winning business from Indiana. Or from anywhere else. How many recent Illinois governors went to jail? 4 out of 7?

It's also interesting he had this to say, right after the controversy died down.
Until Chicago/Illinois gets its house in order, this is nothing but hot air from the gov. .

What makes you thinks it's not any of the Christians doing this stuff? Plenty of them do. And while in prison,they often "find deeper meaning in God".
I may be playing Devil's advocate here:

And, Uh, GEE, apparently you have conveniently forgotten the Crusades? Where the 'Christians' pillaged and plundered and mass murders? ALL in the Name of Christ and Christianity?
The Crusades were military campaigns sanctioned by the Latin Roman Catholic Church during the High Middle Ages and Late Middle Ages. In 1095, Pope Urban II proclaimed the First Crusade with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to holy places in and near Jerusalem. Following the First Crusade there was an intermittent 200-year struggle for control of the Holy Land, with seven more major crusades and numerous minor ones.
DOn't like wiki? Try this one:
The first of the Crusades began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land. After the First Crusade achieved its goal with the capture of Jerusalem in 1099, the invading Christians set up several Latin Christian states, even as Muslims in the region vowed to wage holy war (jihad) to regain control over the region.
{gee and Jihad is still carried out today.}

Alexius I of Constantinople {FOR THE FIRST CRUSADE} called out "Christians, hasten to help your brothers in the East, for they are being attacked. Arm for the rescue of Jerusalem under your captain Christ. Wear his cross as your badge. If you are killed your sins will be pardoned." {sounds familiar? the jihadists believe about the same thing.}
The first crusaders: "Odo of Deuil claims that these men who were fighting for God were reduced to pillaging and plunder in order to get food"..."Fulcher claimed that once the Crusaders had managed to get over the walls of Jerusalem, the Muslim defenders there ran away. Fulcher claimed that the Crusaders cut down anybody they could and that the streets of Jerusalem were ankle deep in blood. The rest of the Crusaders got into the city when the gates were opened. The slaughter continued and the Crusaders "killed whoever they wished"

Crusades - Facts & Summary - HISTORY.com
The First Crusade

Yeah, Chirstians have been the "greatest group ever in the history of the world"...HA.
{PS- I have my own religion views, I will thank you not to try to bestow yours on me}

Some people refuse to accept the fact that disagreement =/= hatred.

They also refuse to accept the fact that it's possible to love the sinner while hating the sin.
