Next issue of Charlie Ebdo will be mocking the Catholic church. This question is to christians only. How mad would you be if 2 Catholics shot the artists who drew this comic?

How mad were you when Tiller the baby killer was murdered? He wasn't breaking any American laws. Was he breaking one of your gods laws? Who cares? Its Allah's law you don't draw a cartoon of their profit.

Don't argue the differences. Understand the similarities. In our society it is legal to abort and draw anyone we like even if insulting.

This is the problem with god. Too many of them and they have too many rules.

Why isn't masturbation illegal in america? Its adultery I just realized. If you lust after someone not your spouse you are committing a christian crime. If you are caught with a playboy and cock in hand you should go to jail.

I think you will find most Christians believe two wrongs do not make a right. Also, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth teaches us that even Old Testament law stated we don't demand an unequal justice. In the Charlie Ebo case, an eye for an eye, and a mock for a mock would come into play. However, in the New
Testament, Christ advises don't even bother yourself with the mock. Forgive, turn the other cheek, and get on with your own life which is to discern the will of God and follow it. Some things deserve no attention.

Not high on my list of priorities at this time. We have people who need killing...lets get on with that and finish it...then we can deal with Charlie and their crusade to make money.

So it is OK for you to murder an abortion doctor because your religion conflicts with our secular laws?

This is why we separate church and state.

And why it is illegal to murder someone who murdered someone you love.

Do you also approve when 1 gang goes and kills another gang because someone in that gang killed someone in their gang?

Ignore them.
They are in France. I am in Texas...never the twain shall meet.
Well, the Daily Texan, up at the college in the People's Socialist Republic of Austin, sure better not run any cartoons of Santa Anna sodomizing Davy Crockett, by fuckin' cracky!

People can do stupid art if they please. We have many museums full of stupidity. It's even your right to advertise it like you are.

but you will see no one killed for it. Nor will you see many people care because they are accountable to God for stupidity not us unless they break a law.

But they might. Once the planet was one big continent called Pangia. One day the continents will come together again. Might be millions of years from now but one day Texas and France will be neighbors.

I don't get this idea that it is "art" because it offends.

I might have missed something.

You are going to have to point me to the post where I said it was okay to murder anyone. All I recall saying is that two wrongs do not make a right. I am unclear on how read that to mean it is okay to murder?

I think you are jumping to some pretty odd conclusions considering the post you quoted.

Even your pope justified violence if you offend or mock someones religion.

If religions were real they wouldn't get offended. They would only feel sorry for us.

You finished with eye for an eye. So if a mock gets a mocking back, then you were suggesting IMO that it was ok Tiller got murdered because he murders babies. Is that not what you were implying?

No. Read on. I was contrasting Old Testament fairness to Christ teaching us to reach even further than fairness.

Well your leader the pope basically said if you make fun of someones mother you should expect a punch in the face. Now imagine making fun of someones god! If you truly believe in god then I would think making fun of him is a lot worse than saying something about your mama. LOL.

blas·phe·my
  1. the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
    "he was detained on charges of blasphemy"
    synonyms: profanity, sacrilege, irreligion, irreverence, taking the Lord's name in vain,swearing, curse, cursing, impiety, desecration;
    archaicexecration
    "the nuns would punish me at least three times a week for my blasphemy"
Most Christians curse. So Christians can get away with adultery and blasphemy?

kNaturally the Charlie folks will send a copy thusly addressed:

Occupant
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC
USA

Thereby acknowledging their respect for the current occupant's sense of humor and the temporary nature of the job. Strange they didn't send a copy of the issue that started the whole brouhaha....but I guess they understood he wouldn't have appreciated that particular cover.

Taunting draws out an emotional response. That is why most people think it is common courtesy not to taunt and deliberately rile people. Taunt someone, and it is human nature to launch an emotional response.

However, many of us try to rise above the emotional response and make use of a more even, balanced response. We see Christ using this technique throughout his ministry.

Christians try to overcome blasphemy and adultery. An ideal for worship and love of God--and an ideal for human sexuality--are set before us. We strive to attain those ideals. We also strive to not judge those who fail (for whatever reasons) to meet the ideal. Christ advised us to avoid sin, to even avoid things that tempt us into sin.
