Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
It will never happen under the Trump regime but I think we should welcome Syrian refugees into the country with open arms and do all we can to make them feel safe, appreciated and welcome. Isn't that what their Christian Jesus would do?
Sorry, 2:05, but far too many modern day xtians are what is known as "salad bar christians". In other words, they pick and choose what they believe in. And it doesn't matter one iota WHAT the bible says!
If you're a true Christian you follow the bible everyday. Not just on sundays. You don't get to pick and choose like the salad bar people...and palins. I am Christian. More than anything I try to live by the basic golden rules.
Actually, Jim Keller, no you cannot deny basic humanitarian assistance to others, whatever their background, if you are truly a Christian. Beagle mom
Which just goes to show how many who claim to be are not actually Christian. The majority of Republicans in Congress come immediately to mind.
And am I to understand that the more wealth I have - and thus, am able to donate to The Church - the higher my standing will be in The Church?
Yes and also, too, whatever awful shit you do to yourself and others is fine eventually, cause, ya know, Jesus forgives and saves. So, exploit, pillage, cheat, lie, steal, hurt, abuse til you are bilious or sated , and then repent. Viola. Who cares what you left in your wake, jesus sure doesn't.
Meh. Neither Christian or religious, but the christian bashing on your blog and by many, if not most liberals, is frankly hypocritical and really shows your stupidity. Hardly ever hear a peep about the muslim faith from your like, except to occasionally praise it. Do you have even the slightest idea how much muslims in the middle east, even a huge swath of the mainstream or more moderates, hate Christians, the west, the US? You aren't atheist, you just hate US christians, and throw them all in the same boat for some odd reason that you obviously haven't resolved in your own brain. Hypocrite.
Well if you have spent any time on this blog you would know that I have disdain for all religions, superstitions, or oppressive political ideologies. If it seems I focus on Christians to the exclusion of others, it is only because they present the far greater danger in America to our freedoms, our progress, and the future of our education system.

I think it's more a matter of exposing how hypocritical those that claim they are Christians actually are.
I agree. The fake christians who spout Christianity while living an anything but Christian life. The hypocrites. They make us all look bad. But then,that can apply to any religion. My former neighbor was a bishop. He was a nasty,dispicable human being. Another example is sarah. Trying to make $$$ off religion while living a tarnished life.
Denying aid to the helpless is just the beginning. You can cheat on your wife, grab women by the genitals, steal people's pay, bully people around, and live your whole life in sin. Then when you need people to vote for your you can do a very transparent "Come to Jesus" conversion and idiots will think you're more Christian than a life-long Methodist. Just never try to be inclusive or use the phrase "Happy Holidays!" because that's the real work of Satan.
Not to mention Trump probably wouldn't allow Jesus to immigrate to the U.S.
Sarah let the poor starve. There's a special place in Hell for palins.They have a lot of blood on their hands.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
