You say all that, yet you bashed me for being a Unitarian Universalist, and thus having a religious affiliation and associating freely with religious people. How it is that my example debunks your own claim, yet you attack me too? Or do you EVER think before you spit more venom?
You are an inconsistent fraud, of course.
Here's another entry from that blog of mine you are so obsessed with. Seems you missed this:
For the record, I am very critical of the Christian religion. But my slamming it ends when I am dealing with a Christian who is open-minded enough to befriend and respect me in spite of my hostility towards his religion. Such a person, in turn, earns my respect. I only do battle with bigots among the Christians, not Christians in general. If I hated all Christians, I wouldn’t be a Unitarian Universalist (UU). UUs, even those that reject Christianity, are still Protestants. If not for the Protestant movement in Christianity, UUs as a denomination wouldn’t exist.
I spent one Sunday talking with a young member of my UU church. She told me about how she visited a Baptist church while wearing a necklace with a rainbow on it, the rainbow being a symbol of gay rights. She was then confronted by the church’s pastor who demanded why she wore such a necklace. The girl then said that she liked other girls, which caused the pastor to give her a lengthy diatribe about how she was headed for hell for being gay.
Later, the UU girl brought to her church a Christian girl who was wearing a cross around her neck. The Christian was confronted by an old UU man who was quite hostile to her and an argument erupted. The UU girl was very embarrassed.
I think that old man should have faced some sort of punishment for his rude behavior. While many people, including myself, regard UU churches as a refuge from Christian fundamentalism, that does not mean we can lable all non-UU Christians as members of the “enemy”. Such an attitude never fails to disgust me. And when a UU teenager is smart enough to recognize the hypocrisy of one of her own elders, that actually gives me hope that the next generation of UUs will be more enlightened and pull UUs in general away from any form of fanaticism, including that of atheists and other anti-Christians. That simply has no place among the UUs!
Kris lied again when he said:
"Stand mute as they build temples to ignorance like the Creation Museum?"
Those are the words that were said about the creation museum, and those are the words I responded to. Nothing was said about funding the museum with government money or tax breaks. Nothing. I don't condone any government money being used for religious things. In fact, I strongly feel that religious organizations/churches should be taxed just like anyone else.
No matter what I say, you people are going to twist it into something else. The only thing you will tolerate is an echo of what you say and believe. You're more like your enemies than you realize.
You people are obsessed. You are consumed by your pathological hatred of religion. It controls every moment of your lives. It controls every thought you have. It is who you are, and what you do. It has imprisoned you. You are as much a slave to your obsession as religious zealots are to theirs, if not more so.
Step out into nature. Breathe in the fresh air. Expand your horizons. It will do you good.
That's exactly how a religious fanatic talks, of course.
If you need a man-made book to beleive in a God who is said to have created the universe, of what value is your faith? You might as well worship an idol.
