    My cult is based upon the following operational definition of evil.

    Evil is that which uses the following tactics:

    Elitism
    Dehumanization
    Deception
    Intimidation

    to achieve it's goals.

    Evis is as evil does. I know it's gumpy, but it works.

    What if they use more than these 4 tactics? Is this something like a Holy Hand Grenade ?

    OK you're evil. That's cute. Then stop your pedantic Christian diatribes, because Christianity is not supposed to be evil. :boohoo: :dunno:

    All i've done is point out the blatant theocratic nature of talmudic "noahidism". I support a multi-religious tolerant society. Islamists and Talmudists noahides are both theocrats. Prove me wrong.

    Then we're on the same page, since I am also against theocracy anywhere and particularly here.

    Nevertheless why would a Christian want to be "evil"? I don't get it.

    ANd I have no clue how "believing embryos are alive" got framed as "christian extremism". It's biology 101. Baby bio.

    Banning you is like grounding a teen ager---they just get more crazy ideas while trapped with their own thoughts :slap:

    Did I say christians want to be evil? I'm looking for a cross cultural, non context bound, operational definition of evil.

    Evil is as evil does, and when an entity

    Is Elitist
    Dehumanizes others
    uses Deception
    and Intimidation

    it is evil. Christianity is not opposed to these principles. I think true christianity, free of worldly perversions, fits inside this circle.

    Is your cult written in stone already or is it a "living" cult?
