The very idea of equality under the law is rooted in Christianity, for we are all one in Christ Jesus, we are all equal in God’s eyes. You may condemn the whole history of Christian western civilization as oppressive and evil, but I do not. I think Christianity was a positive development. Christianity may represent oppression to you, but to me and to the founders of this nation under God, it represented freedom.
“You may condemn the whole history of Christian western civilization as oppressive and evil, but I do not.”
Where do you get off saying things like this? Do you have no conscience? Do think it is good to “bare false witness.” Last time I read my Bible, that is condemned in the Ten Commandments. Do you think your God does not know your motives?
I do not care what you think of me (why should I care what a liar thinks).
You will never find in anything I’ve ever written or said that condemns anything in Christianity, except of course for things like the inquisition, and burning witches at the stake—things which I’m sure you believe are just ducky.
The only thing I want is for all individuals to be free to believe and worship as they choose. You, apparently, would prefer to enslave people and compel them to worship according the tenants of your own cult. If you are a represenetative of today’s Christianity, no wonder it is in such bad straights.
