Haven't you heard? The bible is the word of god and the bible said that god created man in his own image. If people want to insist on taking the bible to have literal meaning, then why not go all the way? Or is there some reason why people get to pick and choose whatever they find convenient for their particular preferred bigotry?

Besides, the bible is clearly super sexist. Thus, we can safely assume that it was written by a male. Thus, god must be male.
Naw, missed that memo.

Well of course it was written by men, unless we have a woman fooling the rest of the monks as they were huddled over their quills. That might make a good movie.

On a more serious note: I don't think there is a human being alive, or who was ever alive, that is/was not a bigot. It's just that the bigotry, in his/her mind, is justified by his/her opinions/views as opposed to not being justified in the case of the other guy's/girl's opinions/views.

Yup - it's an interesting bit of logic that is used here:

I am a bigot and I use my religion as justification to continue down this path unabated. Since religion is a protective category, I am going to use it as a shield and claim that any criticism of my bigotry infringes on my religious freedom.

No, there has never been a person who wasn't bigoted. Many, however, have managed to look in the mirror and question their own bigotry.

Ah, what's natural and unnatural are completely subjective ideas.

You see, anal sex is unnatural and thus, an abomination, although it occurs daily.

Parthenogenesis, however, which NEVER occurs in humans, is alright. I guess because gog was involved with good ole' Mary, it MUST be natural for humans, too.

There is not a shred of evidence that life exists on other planets. Does that mean life on other planets does not exist?

To answer your question..... I think that considering the many billions of planets that it is almost certain that life exists elsewhere.

But not because they are Christian. Because they have run afoul of laws in their area. Anyone else doing the same thing would see the same results.

There is nothing about any person's religious beliefs that make them special or above the law.
