"These shows are intentionally enticing to children being animation and seek to chip away at their beliefs by belittling them in the crudest fashion possible. “

So you’re upset because you think children are being taken advantage of?

Watch Jesus Camp if you have the stomach for it. It's a wake up call for us.

That is blatant child abuse right there.

Thanks for correcting me on that bit of history.

I knew it didn't feel quite right when I wrote it but I was too lazy to look it up and I figured it was close enough to get my point across.

Again, thank you for keeping things factual.

Yeah I watched Jesus Camp. I watched it twice as I showed my mother it. It's quite the addition to the horror genre!

What? It's your claim. You responded with the statement. So you "prove" what most Christians think. I gave evidence on my experience.



I think I may have misread your comment initially.

I think you're asking me to substantiate this statement of mine ...



Christians support (or did support) restrictions on marriage equality, right to choose, etc. A lot of the country still has businesses closed on Sunday, or only able to do partial business, because it is the "Lord's day."


Christian Coalition of America - Stand Up For Traditional Marriage in America"

Defendchristians.org - Traditional Marriage

"There is No Such Thing as a Pro-Choice Christian"

The Bible's Teaching Against Abortion

Vatican Pushes for Sunday Laws

Etc. etc. etc.

There is not a War on Christianity.

If there is a war, it is a war for equality & freedom of religion for all.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of Christians that take it personally.


An example for equality, is a brave Army Soldier named Patrick Stewart.

He died in combat in Afghanistan after his helicopter crashed.

Initially, the Department of Veterans Affairs would not allow a Wiccan pentacle on his grave stone even though around 35 other symbols were allowed.

All forms of socialism seek to make 'public' the resources of a nation, communism specifically seeks to make the world's resources 'public'.



“The Third Way is the fastest way to the Third World” -Václav Klaus


Do you think that it would be better for all the world's resources to be in the hands of a few individuals?


I believe that the world's inhabitants live much longer, freer and higher quality lives when allowed to transact with whomever they choose.

Quite frankly AS a Christian I am quite uncomfortable insulting another person's faith ,that isn't trying to kill the rest of the human race.
I regard occult stuff as dangerous because I know what a Ouija board can do ,which clarifies the demon issue for me.

Occult just means hidden as in hidden information. Frankly, if one believes there are entities in another realm, I don't know how one could, with certainty, determine their intent. Do you simply take their word for their intentions or what?

Demons entities are a part of various religions. So it would be evidence for the truthfulness of those various religions just as much as it would be evidence for your particular religion. Unless of course the demon wrote "I'm a demon as described by your Holy Bible." Even then you'd be trusting an entity that's allegedly deceitful heh..

Not to derail. Though I guess I am.

I must have missed the part about what the evidence is for truthfulness? I thought we were talking about whether the entities were truthful not whether the religions are truthful.

Which was preceded by him declaring he was a Christian. I assumed he was asserting experiences with a ouija board affirms the existence of the demons described by his religion. Which would be suggestive of the truthfulness of the religion. I was making connections. Perhaps I did so in error.

A negative entity is a demon in Christianity not to mention the situation was dispelled by the lords prayer. ACCORDING to the person who became ill after the event.

Yes but where they repelled by the lords prayer, OR the persons unshakeable belief in the lord's prayer and the strength they drew from said belief? Could be either one you know. If the later, then it's not the particular religion or prayer so much as the act of faith itself.

Faith being in this case a strong unquestioning belief in something from which they draw the strength to persevere. AKA the placebo effect.

Which also works in the nastiest situations on the planet many ,many times ,enough not to be a coincedence.
Just deniable from those who don't feel it and some who mock it,although WE need not covert them or cut their heads off about it.

a reply to: cavtrooper7

It's deniable because the evidence is weak.

Not unlike how Christians claim prayer really does physically heal the body because god answers the prayers. Meanwhile god seemingly ignores most prayers, and of course never heals amputees. All suggestive that if it 'works' then it's psychosomatic as Puppylove suggests.

That's the peculiar thing with your kind of reasoning. It never really addresses all the times it doesn't 'work'. How many times has someone uttered the lord's prayer only to have disaster strike anyways?
