Has society allowed the religious community to go to far? It plainly says in both government and religious text that the two should not ever blend. So why do we allow religions a choice to lobby?

I say that we should start treating those that are religious by the standards they wish to live by. If you are religious, then all sins become a crime but only to those that claim to be religious. Every sin in the bible, both new and old testament.

The reason I say this is because religious people often quote the bible where it tells what things are sins, but they seem to only do that on subjects they dont agree with. Technically, divorce should be illegal right? or does that no apply today.

I am just sick of you religious people using the bible for your own gain, but when it works against you, you claim that it doesnt mean exactly that. Make up your mind, either all of the bible is true and you should be legally obligated to uphold it if you are religious, or it is not true. There is no middle road, there is no more, this is correct and true but this is not when it comes to the bible.

Make up your freakin minds...

I started a thread once - why shouldn't churches pay real estate tax like everyone else. They like to preach and dictate to us, while we - including those who don't believe what they do- work to support them.

A quick look at history will catalogue the many ways religion has been used for personal gain of either an individual or a group of people with a dull ax to grind.

That and it's all to easy to find followers of low mental capacity or low moral fiber to act as shock troops to forward the "cause".

If churches are truly focused on charity, let them bail us out of the national debt created by these dastardly wars. Do a little creative....um..sacrificing...for "god and country."

Your wrong ! Divorce is legal in the world of sin, just like two men and two women can get married although they weren't created to be together!! go figure. This is all sin! Sin is Sin!
The truth shall make YOU!! free! JOHN8:32

John 1:17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
"So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeedJohn 8:36

JESUS IS LORD!! ANYONE WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE THIS IS INSANE AND SATAN BOUND!

So are you saying that the only sin is from the ten commandments?

should we fallow biblical law to the letter?
Exodus 35:2

Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.


1 Timothy 2:11-15



A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Leviticus 21:18-20

For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach [to offer the bread of his God]: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

Leviticus 19:19


thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

Leviticus 20:9


For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.(have you met some parents today?)

And last but not least...
Leviticus 18:22

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Now if you say any one of these biblical laws should not be upheld, then none of them should. Do you wear, blended cotten? Do you wear Denim? Have you eaten any fruit or vegetable? DO you think ALL parents are worthy of the love and respect of their children? Have you ever worked on sunday? Do you think men should dominate women? Do you think homosexuality is wrong?

If you say no to any one of these than you are saying no to all of them and saying that the bible is false.
