you are all hung up on faith. You assume that faith comes only in Christian form. I don't need help. I'm just fine with my personal "one size fits ME" faith. You embrace yours. I have a problem with Christians who tell me that I am not worshipping in the right way." translation : THEIR way.

Do you have a crystal ball to look into my mind and heart? No, you don't. You don't know me. If you were so fine with your "personal on size fits ME faith" in your own words, there would no be a reason to incessantly attack others for posessing faith differing from you own idea would there? Your hate consumes you and leaks out like a toxic poison. Serious, I hope you get help for that. Go in peace.

I don't hate Christians although proselytizing Kristians do annoy me. I don't hate Muslims although I think their treatment of women is appalling and their radical terrorists are playing into our warmonger's hands. I don't hate anybody. There are some people I fear and some I love. I have a deep faith but I am not Christian or Muslim.

Hey, we were bringing them democracy at the point of a gun.
The US destroyed a secular country.
The US christers should stay the heck out of there. They should have worried about the Iraqi xian souls before the war; not by adding insult to injury afterwards.
Didn't Bush say that his god told him to go into Iraq?

George Bush: 'God told me to end the tyranny in Iraq' | World news | The Guardian
One of the delegates, Nabil Shaath, who was Palestinian foreign minister at the time, said: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I am driven with a mission from God'. God would tell me, 'George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did. And then God would tell me 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq'. And I did."

Default Fantasy

"Joseph Smith, Jr. (December 23, 1805 June 27, 1844) was the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, a group of churches whose adherents regard him as a prophet.


In the late 1820s, Smith announced that an angel had given him a book of golden plates, containing a religious history of ancient American peoples. Smith claimed the book was written in an unknown language, which he translated by use of seer stones given with the plates. In 1830, Smith published this translation as the Book of Mormon and organized what he claimed was a restoration of the early Christian church.

For at least some of his earliest translation, Smith said he used a "Urim and Thummim",[39] a pair of seer stones he said were buried with the golden plates.[40] Later translation, however, was with a single chocolate-colored stone he had found in 1822 and used for treasure hunting.[41] In a manner similar to his method for finding treasure,[42] he claimed he translated by gazing at the stone or stones in the bottom of his hat, excluding all light so that he could see the translated words.[43] The plates themselves were not directly consulted.

Smith's followers believe he saw God and regard his revelations as scripture. His teachings include unique views on the nature of godhood, cosmology, family structures, political organization, and religious collectivism. His legacy includes a number of religious denominations, which collectively claim a growing membership of nearly 14 million worldwide."

Seriously folks? This sounds like a Disney movie but it's not. Fully grown, mentally stable adults believe this nonsensical fantasy to be true. I wonder if people read this not knowing it was already a widely adhered to religion, how many would take it seriously..This stuff baffles me. All religion baffles me.

That's very Christian of you.
LOL. you noticed that too. This is a trend - many of the "christian" folk are some of the most bigoted intolerant people you ever would not wish to meet. Apparently some Christians "count" less than other ones in their eyes. What would the dear lord say about that.
