...I just have to laugh.
I believe you are wrong on Ravi being an Atheist...she may not subscribe to the religious stance of others, but i have not ever seen her say that she was an atheist Mani, have you?
When atheists invoke Christ's teachings to promote policy...
When christians invoke christ for the havok they wreck on this planet..I have to laugh.
Tell me..if christ showed up today..a brown skinned bare foot socialist unemployed non english speaking jew with no proof of birth would you have him arrested or thrown out of the country?
No, I'm a lapsed Catholic and a current agnostic. Unlike Mani, I don't believe that pretending to believe is the path to salvation.
And I seriously doubt Jesus has any complaints about my questions.
Does that mean that you are past your expiration date?
it is worse to have Christians invoke evil in the name of Christ as it would be for muslim to invoke evil in the name of allah or a jew to invoke evil in the name of God...in my opinion...because they are suppose to representing what Christ taught, and he never taught being evil or cruel or unjust or waxed cold.
For roaming priestly hands, yes.
Or better yet, what about all these evangelical leaders? Can you imagine any of them bowing down to someone who didn't look like a "Nordic God"?
If he doesn't have straight, light brown hair, blue eyes, and a western profile, it obviously CAN'T be Jesus.
Methinks somebody is a wee bit insecure and self centered.
I didn't mention anybody specifically.
