Seems like you are playing a game. Look at your first post, (gee I am so innocent, I don't have a bias here.) Then look at this post. I guess you don't see your bigotry. How are people today responsible and same for people 500 yrs, 1000, yrs, 1500 yrs ago. Do you realize there are not the same people. Homo******ity was way older than Christianity, are you going to say the Homo******'s today are the same as 5,000 yrs ago and are responsible for that ever any homo****** done since then?
BTW, with your other quotes, I doubt if you really know much about those three religions, I doubt you have read their religious canons. Probably just picked up a piece here or there to suit your own bias.
I would suggest reading the forum rules. If your anti-religion and people who have a religion, I would say go to Arlington Cemetery and walk among the graves.
People are individuals, It is fallacy in logic to paint the whole group for the action of one person.
Oh yes,try to get rid of something so hardwired into human nature.
I have yet to meet an actual asshole bully that is abusing other kids because Jesus told him to.
"Abrahamic religions or Abrahamitic religions are the monotheistic faiths emphasizing and tracing their common origin to Abraham or recognizing a spiritual tradition identified with him.[
The three major Abrahamic religions are, in chronological order of founding, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam."
As far as he Abrahamic stuff, there is more to it.
Like bullies, the can choose what ever idea, philosophy, religion, etc to justify their bullying, people can manipulate, alter, what ever text to justify their own brand of bias/bigotry. You do know paraphrasing is a pretty popular pastime. If you want to know what the Christians on this forum think, ask them. People can only speak for themselves. As you found out, the Christians on this forum have a different view than the ones that you mentioned.
However, as I stated before, from personal experience I have seen dogmatic types view bullying from the sidelines and vocally justify it either in a religious or social Darwinistic manner. They may not be the ones personally bullying the kid, but they definitely make the atmosphere less helpful.
Usually though, these guys aren't the aforementioned "Bible readers" (those ones are usually quiet and tend to be quite well-mannered). Instead they are loud outgoing-types that gravitate towards social circles (a good chunk of the time, nobody really likes them), and in the end, for all their holier-than-thou platitudes, they tend to be less-than-reverent in their actions.
Also, it's true that its easy to find Christians who are, or were, extraordinarily laudable in a humanitarian sense. There are others who are simply very decent and tend to their own business.
My earlier statement about "blowback" was an over-reaching generalization, which can sometimes be difficult to avoid when not resorting to full-blown e-prime.
Gay marriage literally has nothing to do with "bullying" in schools. Kids can't even marry, let alone gay marry...IMO, it could be argued that they exist together somewhere on the same continuum—that commonplace human tendency to involve oneself, uninvited, in the personal business of others, and to f*ck with them.
Another thing, when it comes to "tit-for-tat," can you please tell me what "tat" is, how to get it, and where I can exchange it for that other thing?
So he resents some christians but takes it out on any he comes across?
Sure sounds like a Bigoted prick, or do you believe he was in fear of those teens?
