    What the heck do you think you are agreeing with. I could not have wanted to go to christians talking about crazy things christians say until I saw there are such.

    Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican's chief exorcist

    Amorth stated: “Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter." He further said though the books might seem harmless, Amorth believes the books lead kids to believe in black magic. “In Harry Potter the Devil acts in a crafty and covert manner, under the guise of extraordinary powers, magic spells and curses.”

    Hey I wonder if you read Harry Potter WHILE doing yoga that you will be sent to hell twice? lol!

    How about a homosexual doing yoga & reading Harry Potter while cooking a kid in its mother's milk?

    Father Amrtoth doesn't contribute to this forum AFAIK. If you have a beef with him, write to him. Why inflict your cut-and-paste spam contribution to gay rights on us?

    Ali I see is two narrow-minded bigots seeking negative attention: you and him.

    Hmm. Let's see, since Amorth isn't a forum member, there's no need to put him on my ignore list. You, however....

    Goodbye Woo Master . I hope slender man doesn't get you. Enjoy flaming on.

    Atheists Still Going To Hell, Vatican Spokesman Confirms

    "Vatican spokesman clarified on Thursday that atheists are still going to hell despite Pope Francis' homily last week that pointed out doing good wasn't just confined to the faith community and even atheists, despite their views, are able to do good as well.

    "Doing good," the pope explained in his homily last Wednesday, is not a matter of faith: "It is a duty, it is an identity card that our Father has given to all of us, because He has made us in His image and likeness. And He does good, always."

    But in an "explanatory note on the meaning of 'salvation,'" the Rev. Thomas Rosica, a Vatican spokesman highlighted that being "good" alone is not enough to be saved. People who know about the Catholic Church, he explained, "cannot be saved" if they "refuse to enter her or remain in her."

    "A Sodomite woman is not a lesbian nor is a Sodomite man a gay. They are Sodomites! Call them what they are by using the title of infainy given them by the Lord"

    The HolyBabble does not even mention women lying with women. It seems to not matter what women do with each other.

    Sure jan, they have a right to hear this. Just don't omit the first line:

    This essay is an outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.

    In 1987, Michael Swift was asked to contribute an editorial piece to GCN, an important gay community magazine, although well to the left of most American gay and lesbian opinion. A decade later this text, printed in the Congressional Record is repeatedly cited, apparently verbatim, by the religious right as evidence of the "Gay Agenda". The video Gay Rights, Special Rights, put out by Lou Sheldon's Traditional Values Coalition cites it with ominous music and picture of children. But when the religious right cites this text, they always omit, as does the Congressional record, the vital first line, which sets the context for the piece. In other words, every other version of this found on the net is part of the radical right's great lie about gay people. For a discussion of the whole "Gay vs. Religious Right" phenomenon see Chris Bull and John Gallagher: Perfect Enemies: The Religious Right, the Gay Movement, and the Politics of the 1990s, (New York: Crown, 1996)

    Emphasis mine.

    You're right jan, it would be absolutely "batshit crazy" if we let you get away with your normal disingenuous religious right crap. Trying to perpetuate the radical right's great lie about gay people again? Keep on tryin'...

    When complaining about labels like homophobic and ignorant being attached to one's religious associates, it's probably best not to illustrate the problem by asserting, say, that homosexuality was "no great concern" of any of the religious school classmates you had been addressing as "faggot" and "queer" for all the years of their lives.

    How? Because they are not supposed to be vicious and moronic bigots incapable of reason and devoid of irony and drowned in quite extraordinary prejudices and delusions - borderline mental illnesses.

    The blindness and bigotry visible in so much of such posting by Christians here is reasonable cause to support the continued occasional existence of these kinds of threads - they are apparently necessary, for Christians to have at least a sliver of an opportunity to become aware of how they've been addressing, thinking about, and treating other human beings.

    If it's an endless onslaught of drivel here, imagine how it is to live in communities and legal systems so strongly influenced and guided by it.

    Those sound like Yogi Berra.

    I think you miss the point. If we generalised every homosexual as perpetuating the manifesto, you would not be a happy man, especially if you knew for a fact that you don't (if you are homosexual), or people you know, don't.
    Yet MR is doing just that with regard to Christian's, religious people, and theists in general. He's needlessly upsetting people on this forum.

    The Pope is upsetting the hierarchy.
    He's saying things like the world would be a better place if we forgot our differences
    and tried to see the good in each other.
    He'd better watch himself, or he'll go the same way as JP1.

    I'm quite disapointed at the continuous generalisation, yes.

    So how does coming here and generalising help?
    Isn't it better to deal with such behaviour, to whom it may concern?

    That Harry Potter image comes from Bettybowers.com. Bettybowers.com is an atheist website pretending to be a Christian website. Like "Landover Baptist", it "parodies" Christians (and calls what it does "humor"), then other atheists will proceed to quote it as if it was really the work of Christians.
