"one of the could have influenced the bible"
Influence does not mean the great flood was fact. Human beings influenced the Bible because they existed, but that does not mean it is historical fact. Earlier you declared the Bible to be documented historical fact. It is myth and is not meant to stand as history.

The personality of Jesus that can be gleaned from the NT as a whole, suggests a profoundly loving person. Such an individual would be humble inasmuch as love is selfless, (vs. selfish), attentive-to-the-other in the sense of being fully present to another and highly aware in that relationship. All of these dynamics are opposite of the poor listener, the egotist and egoist who literally says: "Enough about you - let's talk about ME."

It is not about whether Jesus was so "good and pure" in some culturally-defined etiquette sense. A holy man in any tradition guards against something as blatant as arrogance. Pride was the 'primal sin' of Lucifer in myth and Jesus knew that most assuredly. Give the Man some credit will ya?

Well I do accept Christanity. What I don't want to be forced into, is living in this country  by their rules. Christanity is being used to oppress people here. And around the world.

This happens with many religions. That's why I personally have no use for them. :mushroom2:




what do you mean? what rules are those?




Like making abortion illegal.  Forcing prayer in church.  The religious right has power in this country Old. It's a continual battlel to stop them using their distorted beliefs to govern this country.

And in other countries the Pope says no to birth control. That's his rule. Or abortion. ect. ect. ect.

I would add censorship, laws against same-sex marriage, disallowing government/employment benefits for same-sex AND opposite sex unmarried partners, discrimination against homosexuals, "In God We Trust" printed on our paper money, "One Nation Under God" in our Pledge of Allegiance...I could go on!

The separation of church and state is fatally compromised.

"Like making abortion illegal. Forcing prayer in church. The religious right has power in this country Old. It's a continual battlel to stop them using their distorted beliefs to govern this country."

In this country abortion is legal, but why would someone go to church and object to praying?(I am puzzled here) In the end no one is making you follow any religiously oriented rules....I have a feeling that this could not be done even if it were law...so why worry? Yes there are many battles about what should or should not be legal, but is that not what a democracy is about? Everybody has their say...right or wrong. These are good resons we should be politically active no matter what our views on government. As far as the Pope goes...I am not Catholic so I could care less what they do....but those people in third world nations you refer to choose to be Catholic...and many are quite militant about it.

Ok, as for homosexual issues, that goes beyond religion, people simply don't like them, so they cause a lot of problems to them, that will pass.

But are you really damaged by what is writen on money?

So the guy printing money trusts in god, so what?

We are talking about rules imposed by religious believers. In the US money is not "legal tender" unless it is imprinted with a religious sentiment. And the Pledge of Allegiance, which is meant to involve political loyalty, includes a religious pledge as well.

so what, it's just words, a formality, it means nothing

I bet that most people when they pledge don't even think about the meaning of the words, they just try to remember how it goes and get it over with. It's like sorting paperwork.

Wrong! It means lots. It's propaganda. And how about addressing the other issues here. If you don't think that the main thrust behind abortion issues isn't religious then you just don't have enough information.

I was talking about homosexuality , not abortion


And propaganda works if you let it work. The country was founded on christian tradition. Should it throw away its roots just for the sake of some rebelious act against religions?

The real question is, why does it bother you?

I can't be more clear on this then I have already been. This country was not founded on a christian tradition IMO. It was founded on seperation between church and state. And I am talking about abortion. I brought it up and you never addressed it.

ok then let's talk about abortion..

It is a conflict of two opinions regarding the subject. Naturally, those with higher power push their opinion to be the dominant one.
