Oh you're right! Christians don't do anything wrong! The bible (which lolchristians follow) tell people to hug people to death for doing wrong.

TY for the help!

Ah, the hypocrisy. You never can get a true answer from those people either.

I do feel for this man's family. Who knows if this man WAS hitting on this guy.. and how he was "sexually advancing" to him. EVEN if someone was coming on to you.. do you really kill them? Ugh. Society.
A better question would be why would someone bother to take the time to fabricate a story in an attempt to discredit someone elses beliefs.

By the way the proper translation is murder not kill. It makes a difference.

Here is the biggest double standard set by those who believe in and follow the bible.

Quote:
A Cypress man charged in the death of a Southwest Airlines flight attendant said Saturday that he was doing God's work when he went to a Montrose-area bar last month, hunting for a gay man to kill.
"I believe I'm Elijah, called by God to be a prophet," said 26-year-old Terry Mark Mangum, charged with murder June 11. " ... I believe with all my heart that I was doing the right thing."
Quote:
Moses says God told him that gays were to be killed. So why does virtually everyone, including those who believe the Bible is the infallible word of God, think this guy is a total lunatic, yet those same people consider Moses to be a great man of God? I say they're both lunatics, either falsely claiming to hear God's voice to justify what they wanted to do, or being mentally ill enough to actually believe that they hear such voices.

and the laws of our state say that with premeditation it is murder in the first and eligible for a needle.... I'd be happy to place it for the state.

Is there anything to corroborate the accused murderer's story? Very suspicious that he was also the Executor of the victim's will......

Murder is so much more effective than saying no, I guess.

Well, I hope you don't eat shellfish; wear mixed blended fabric clothing; work on Sunday; that you only pray and keep your religion in a closet, etc.
Or is it cafeteria style religion?
Hypocrisy, thy name is christer.

BTW, there's no proof that the older guy hit on the younger guy.

So you either purposely misled or threw in some bible garbage for what reason?

Can I quote this when you generalize about feminists, blacks, etc. etc. etc.

Please don't use this incident to characterize Christianity. Doing so makes you also take on the appearance of a loon.
Sorry, too many christers behave badly and leads me to believe that it's something inherent in their religion.
And religion, I will mock it.
Consider it more persecution.

This murder appears to be about money. Either way, the murderer is sick.

That's exactly what I thought, too, but that doesn't seem to be important to this "discussion".

Troll thread.
