I don't judge gays. Actually, I can't. I tell them that Someone else has judged them. But they can escape it. I don't see homosexuality as a special sin. It's equal with lying, cheating, being mean, etc.

Being supportive of an institution that judges gays is a way of judging gays. That's like being in the Mafia but saying you don't condone extortion.

Tip toe much? If your telling someone how they can escape the judgement that is leveled by another then you are acting as their agent. I don't know which is worse; being judgemental or being so spineless when trying to "clarify" your position.

Everyone gets judged. Everyone can escape the (italics) damning (italics; I wish html text worked in comments) judgment.
I'm not judgmental nor spineless. I'm feel no shame, regret, timidity, whatever about saying what I just said.

You see homosexuals the same way you see liars. That is judgement. Saying that you aren't judgemental means zero after you pass judgment like that. I'm sure you feel fine hiding behind a book and saying the judgement doesn't come from you but that's not true. Which makes you a liar. Just as sinful as a gay person. Enjoy hades.

Of course I believe in evolution. There's a ton of evidence to support it. As well as the theory of the expanding universe. And there's absolutely zero evidence supporting any deity. Very easy choice.

As I said you know the evidence. I don't have time or enough memory to remind you of the entirety of your science education, assuming you got one. If not watch Cosmos on Netflix. No faith, just facts. The physical evidence is there. Where do I find the physical evidence of your deity?

You're still not stating evidence Tttony. I heard a man say once: "The universe is like a big clock. All the pieces work together and it wouldn't work if one of the pieces was missing. If you dismantled a clock, put all the parts in a box, and blew it all up (box and parts) (big bang) do you think it would create a perfect, fully functional clock? Something to think about.
0 ups
You answered yourself so I didn't get notified. I'm sure there's a sin in there somewhere. As far as your exploding clock analogy it's as flawed as xtian doctrine. In an explosion larger than you can imagine on a scale of space and time that the brain doesn't fully comprehend we are on a tiny insignificant planet in a relatively young solar system. For the rest of the story get a Netflix account and watch Cosmos. It's breath taking. Put it on the biggest TV you have.

"What your" *you're* "asking is to reconstruct a deconstructed mechanism at random. Our universe wasn't previously intact then disassembled to see how it would work if we threw all the pieces in the air and see how they landed. That would require an omnipotent entity with questionable motives and intelligence. Instead our universe has developed from a reality unrelated to where it is now. Time is linear and we have gotten here from a less developed state."
Then where did it originally develop from? You know what? Forget those other questions for the moment and tell me the evidence for the big bang/evolution.

Thank you for pointing out that my phone completed a word incorrectly without me catching it. Ur truly doing the lord's work there Zffhatff. I assume you pronounce it asshat. And you sure do demand that I answer your questions alot. Was it necessary to copy my entire post to correct just one word? Answer the question. And forget that and answer this question. Where is your proof that this was all designed? It seems to me the burden of proof is on you. We know the universe exists. Where's your proof that a deity exists?

This is in response to your evolution comment. It's not absurd to realize that small changes over time will accumulate and produce large changes. That's all evolution is. Baby steps. Evolution doesn't say that everything is by chance. Beneficial traits are more likely to get passed down to successive generations. These traits will then proliferate in the population. It's not complicated. If you have scientific proof that a supernatural being like God created the universe and life, I'd be interested in hearing it.

That Tttony guy was talking about the evidence for evolution, but he still hasn't said it. XD Sorry people, but evolution takes as much faith to believe as the Bible.

Evidence exists for evolution and the expanding model of the universe. You have heard it and clearly you refuse to believe it. But no evidence is ever given for any deity. We're just told it's beautiful glorious faith. When you get some evidence then raise your hand. Until then I'll just talk to the rationals.

Your meme doesn't say "according to the pope" or "according to the bible". It just says everyone's a sinner. That is what I commented on. Your judgemental words.

So you don't think everyone is a sinner? You've never done bad things (sin)?
Saying the truth isn't judgmental, it's stating the facts.
reply

Calling everyone a sinner in an open forum is bound to be commented on. Your words are an example of the problem. Religious people swallow an insane fairytale doctrine and suddenly they have the right to judge people. Just because they don't believe the same fairytale. It's just bullying and deserves to be called such.
