Westboro Baptist Church folks. Baptists are Christians.

Would you like me to point out people like Jeffrey Dahmer and say that he was gay, so most gays are like that? Just use the analogy. I didn't upvote the original meme for a similar reason. Westbrook Baptist church is a cult which follows some butt heads who don't follow the bible. I don't wish for LGBT people to be upset. Some Christians are very offensive, but I bet many people are seeing red now. I hope the best for you guys, and I've known a few. It's good to see your perspective, in general. It helps me be a better Christian, actually...in the "good" sense. I don't want to attack your personhood.

Baptist is an offshoot, or a sect of Christian. True Christianity is a relationship with God, not religion. Baptist, just like protestant, seventh day Adventist, etc, is just a group that base their roots in Christianity, but are not a true version of Christianity. Some believe the same things, for the most part. And many are Christians, but calling yourself a Christian and not following biblical teachings doesn't make you a Christian.

How many different interpretations are there of the same holy book do you all have? Do you see why I don't want my rights interpreted by his followers?

How many interpretations are there of the constitution? And yet, there is still an original that many Americans don't truly know.

What???? Why, when asked a question, do you void the subject with another question?

No you didn't. My question was, "why, when asked a question, do you void the subject with another question?" The question which you claim you answered already was from The Lone Rustler. And if you proofread your comments you did not answer his question either, you just tried to flip the script. A common tactic for some one that does not have an answer.

But its true,... we do not believe them to be true Christians spewing hate. They are an "exception" that have an extreme interpretation of the bible and are not accepted by mainstream christianity. I am a Christian,.. and I although many denominations have variences in interpretations,... they basically have the same core belief. If a user on this site who claimed to be Christian,.. was spewing that hatred,.. I would not agree with him / her regardless of their claim to be Christian. . nor would other mainstream Christians. Wizasser above,.. is commenting in a Christian manner. I have no idea what his denomination is, but even if different from mine,.. I can see he represents a true Christian heart. And you have known me long enough to know the same,.. we don't make personal attacks and condemn. We may disagree with you,... but we also wish the best for you. Christianity certainly has some historical imperfections ( sarcasm ),.. but it is not practiced that way now at all. . with the exception of some cults like westboro. =) GOOD TO SEE YOU ACTIVE BRO! I have been fooled! And the one time could have met was right after my sinus surgery when I had that extra procedure with the stent! Big bummer! I'll be looking for you this way soon,... regardless of time,.. will make sure we have a bite and a beer or coffee!

The sad part is,.. you're right,... these screwjobs that make their cult use the bible as their tool and it unfortunately,... gets often blown out of proportion to make us regular mainstream Christians look bad,... it sucks! ha ha!! Fortunately,... we distance ourselves from them,... they are a cult for sure,.. but a very small %. If that was mainstream Christianity,.. I'd looking at being a Buddhist! There are a lot of good people out there with a true north morale compass, who may not be Christian,.. but conduct themselves on (true) Christian values in the way they treat others. You sir,.. being one. Glad to know ya! =)

Sorry to burst in, but this comment branch made me very happy. I'm not a person of religion nor am I a person of politics. However, some of my friends are die-hard Christians, liberals, or republicans. Though we get into debates and can never really agree on the others' opinions entirely. We still understand that all humans are people and we go on being friends, because we know that religion and political stance, even sexual orientation, do not define you as a person. Your actions and the way that you make your actions do. I just wanted to point this out to some of the people commenting on this thread. Take Invicta103 and Octavia_Melody as example of being a good person.

Thank you friend! Not busting in at all... you made great points! Our actions and how we treat others define who we are.. not labels. Some bad peeps out there like a jar of poison... but use a misleading label. Thank you for the comment!

OM and I go way back with different opinions.. but he's one of the nicest users on the imgflip platform. Wish he was my neighbor!

Those people piss Christians off, btw. We all can probably agree that what they say is despicable. None of those signs are correct interpretations of the bible nor of what most Christians believe.

Christians didn't do that. Africans sold their own people to the European secularists.

I'm pretty sure the American colonial settlers were all just different types of Christian. Octavia was not talking about Africans he was talking about Native Americans. Where did the "they sold us slaves so it's ok" come from? It does not matter who you bought the slave from it is still wrong.

Check out what types of scum ran the slave trade & follow the money. And Christians who bought into it were doing an evil thing. God said to treat even the ANIMALS well, and that people are certainly more valuable than animals. Slavery was part of the secular system primarily.

Yes it does. In the New Testament it was common practice in the culture, a fact of life. But It is inconsistent with the words of Jesus which were to free the oppressed, set the captives free, show mercy, and to treat others as yourself. Jesus came to fulfill the harsh requirements of the Law since nobody can live up to them, which he did by dying on the cross.

If you want to get technical, it is an offshoot of Christianity, which is an Abrahamic religion.

What do you mean? Puritan Colonials in Massachusetts ran around shoving Indians into "praying towns" for their "salvation from hell", resulting in any deaths from starvation, dysentery and other diseases.

No, the historical site at the Newtown, Massachusetts that my AP History class went to. The towns were virtual prisons, and the inhabitants were given just enough food for 800 people when there were more then two thousand. Unlike whatever shit Texan history is teaching you, Massachusetts history actually focuses on truth, and not self-glorification.

Texas history is about Texas. Not sure what you're trying to say. All Texans are morons? I mean, you think a few so-called Christians committed some supposed acts of horror and that bases your hatred for most or all Christians? I suppose if your hatred for God and his followers is so strong...then whatever you say, man.

Joel Osteen claims to be a Christian as well, but he's nothing more than a glorfied self help guru who uses Christianity to fool people into giving him money.

I don't hate God, because I don't believe in him. I don't mind Christians, except when they claim to be the oppressed group when they are the ones doing the oppressing. And I meant the Texan rendition of US History, since none of the states can agree to teach it the same way.

Actually Christians are being oppressed a lot more than they have been in U.S. history. Actually all over the world. But we'll never see eye to eye on this so I leave it at this comment.

Dude no one ever mentioned anything about hating all Christians. Where are you getting the backing for these accusations. Also let me point out to you that there hundreds of denominations of Christianity. Catholicism is one therefore they are Christians. Every denomination has something different that they believe in that the others don't and that is why they are not all simply called "Christians." The Seventh Day Adventists for example would call you a "bad Christian," for eating pig or shellfish which I'm certain most American Christians do. However it is stated in the Bible clearly that eating these animals or even touching their carcasses makes you "unclean."

And Christians stopped it, but not soon enough. It also helps to try & understand the secular & political climate at the time. A lot of powerful people were really Christians in name only, and misused the bible to justify what they did. "Money is A root of MANY TYPES of evil." Follow the money, as always.

Some of them were probably gay according to the statistics that claim such a large percent of the population is truly gay (which I really don't buy into)

Can we ever keep the discussion within the past few decades? I mean every time there is a political or religious discussion we are suddenly plunged into the deepest pages of the history books. We are living in the PRESENT now. These are present day problems. I, for one have or should I say used to not have, any problem with gay people. The problem ow stems from it being pushed as short of a "cool" lifestyle to young people. I don't think a person's sexual preference is something to be proud of or to glamorize. They are going over the top! And people are tired of hearing about it.
