But only lefty humans celebrate it.
Apparently it's not enough under today's rules, or else Guantanamo would be empty.
You make several errors in your "interpretation" of the Bible. First off, you use Catholic doctrine to interpret what the Bible says, but Catholic doctrine is contrary to almost everything in the Bible, from iconography to Mary worship to confession to alms-giving to papal authority to church hierarchy. It's all unBiblical. Second, you incorporate the Old Testament wholesale into New Testament Christianity, and very little of the Old Testament is relevant to New Testament Christianity. Christians are not under the law (OT), they are under grace (NT). Moses has almost nothing to say to Christians, Jesus and Paul do. Third, I don't know where you get your novel interpretations, but you don't check them against other Biblical scholars, or even commonly available secular sources, so you are mostly wrong on almost every topic. Fourth, you are the most literal literalist I've ever seen, and that's coming from a former fundamentalist. Your notion that Christianity is based on being a cannibal is utter rubbish and nonsense. When Jesus presented the first communion, he was using symbology even then... he was sitting right there, if he wanted his followers to literally eat of his flesh or drink of his blood, he could have made that happen. He didn't. He used symbolism, using bread to represent his flesh and wine to represent his blood, to signify that the apostles were sharing in his fate and joining him in the new kingdom to come.
Its pretty horrific that Christians believe that the universe is a dictatorship and that the dictator will torture the majority of the population for not having blind faith in him.
Wait, are you talking about Kim Jong Un or God/Jesus? I can't really tell the difference - both are into being dictators, not allowing religious freedom for 99.999999999%+ of ones total existence (counting the "after-life"), and into torture (Kim's brutal gulags and God/Jesus' brutal gulag that he set up and doesn't close down - "hell".)
Christianity seems about as evil as Juche is, actually.
Jesus was also lying when he approved of Adam/Eve - because we now know that Adam/Eve is just a fairy tale - the geneologies from Adam/Eve to Jesus (then to today) are only about 6000 years - so of course Jesus was a fool or a liar.
God's Achilles Heel is his inability to be intellectually consistent.
Jesus sounds very very rude.
What do you mean? Isn't Guantanamo Bay used for the enemies of the United States?
And they say an Atheistic, "meaningless" existence where morality is subjective is bleak. In all honesty I find the Christian interpretation of existence far darker.
Spoken like a fervent believer; all opinion, no facts. There is no single or group of people on the entire planet who knows what God is thinking or has thought.
That's because he's no more real than Bigfoot is.
Well at least we know that because the BIBLE is so intellectually inconsistent that the BIBLE is not inspired from god: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/contra/number.html
I bet that Wyrd can indeed back up his claim of the 144,000 figure, though.
If Islam were a peaceful religion then Gitmo would be a barren wasteland.
Which Christian interpretation?
I'm sure he can cherry-pick all sorts of ****.
It never fails to amuse me how you consistently post two replies to a single post of mine.
If it was from god he couldn't "cherry-pick", because an all-knowing, all-powerful "god", if he cared about his "children", would know how to largely prevent that in his book.
...used to it.
QED and very amusing behavior. Almost obsessive compulsive. When you can actually converse on topic, let me know, kid.
My mommy gives me candy.....
.....for each post that I make!!
