I don't care if Christians apologize, but it would be nice to see people treating people equally, regardless of your religion.

Apologies are just words.

Actions are another matter.

Wheres your question, i gave you the evidence in my in my third post in this thread, discredit it or are you too silly to do so?

Why dont you ask God for help? LoL

I refuse to help you sustain your own ignorant believe system. Not that you are perfectly entitled to do so, freewill and all that jazz!

If i would believe in any religious crap, if i would be christian, for what should I apologize to gay people?
For being not gay?

After watching Spotlight last night, i think all the pedophile and homosexual priests should apologize to their victims and the world!
And then they need to be punished! Not with transfering them to a south american town, where they can go on and on!

We Christians may apologize, but too many people will misread it as condoning sexual promiscuity.

Well, that's one way to rationalize it.


The issue is that sexual promiscuity outside of a real and lasting relationship is sin.

Only if you're a Christian or Muslim. For everyone else, it's just natural human behavior and experience.

I, my friend, am not an atheist. I believe in nothing.

Let's try again

Wouldn't it be nice if atheists put there hands up and say Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot were stupid atheists and acted subhuman
Not accusing you or anyone here of anything

I don't mind what you believe, just don't blame religion for all the violence and hate, unbelievers have a bigger death toll they can claim

Simple?

Tu Qoque fallacy.

Exactly.

Actions not only speak louder than words, but are far less able to be undertaken with barely disguised disgust and loathing. Truly loving your fellow human being without judgement is not difficult, unless you have to first throw off the wrong think that right wing politics inserts into religious dogma, against the wishes of Christ.

For the life of me I never thought I would say this about a Roman, but the pope has this one nailed in my estimation.

If the pope is saying apologize, that means that he is judging an action to be incorrect.

If you can judge an action to be incorrect and that doesn't count as judging. Then one can judge whom people sleep with.



I just think the catholic church and Hollywood is going down this path. If a 10 year old boy can "know" he's gay, that's ok. If a 10 year old boy can "know" he's a girl, that's ok. Why can't a 10 year old boy "know" that he wants a grown man to do sexual things with him.

If you disagree with that, well don't judge it out loud or even type a different opinion. remember this post is about not judging other people.

They have been editing and deleting parts of the Bible in one form or another for the past 2000 odd years to suit there own agenda.
a reply to: andy06shake

Exactly! What does that say about religion? Humanity has been following writings that have been manipulated, and censored to suit their own religious concepts! If it was truly the word of God, it would have been written clearly and precise without any chance of it being misinterpreted and contain censored writings that clearly don't convey acceptance and love. Instead we have multiple religious beliefs that have created nothing but divisiveness and conflict on this planet.

Always impressed Chro. Wish more christians in the mainstream conversation in the US had such a pespective.

We disagree plenty as I am not a theist but your very consistent and well versed in theology and philosophy. I appreciate your input to conversations.

You also often show how one can appreciate science and seperate metaphysical arguements from science.

I havnt avoided criticism, I have accepted religion has an evil streak, it seems you, Klass are hiding and deflecting

Let's try again

I havnt denied the evil of religion, I agree religion is failed, yet you Klass, you can't see the faults in atheism.


Great deflection, let's not answer honestly and sincerely, let's play games

Atheism, communism regime, over 100 million lives lost, hey let's blame religion as evil

Thanks Tenth. At least the pope is not engaging in such in this instance.

This pope is a weirdo, but yes, Christians who try to justify misplaced hatred of gays should really stop it because Christianity is supposed to be about not judging others because we are all sinners. Maybe the pope shouldn't have fired that gay priest, then. I wonder if he's going to apologize to him for smearing him in the media lol

Did he fire the priest because of his sexual preferences? Or were there other reasons?

I did not hear about this incident, so if you could link to it, I would be grateful.

Well, clearly the Pope and Obama enjoy being apologists.

I only apologize when I am actually wrong.

All US citizens should apologise to the native tribes of the US
Australians and Britz the natives of Australia
Germans should apologise to the Jews and the pope and all Catholics to sexually abused children

All the pope needs is a red nose and he can be a real clown, he has a stupid hat

He has to start by explaining the churches reasoning not just dictating that it must be done
And yes it must be done, only by those who do abuse their power


The difference is that the US isn't still committing genocide towards its native population, the Brits stopped massacring the Australian natives, and the Germans long ago ended the holocaust.

But the LGBT community has been, and still is, oppressed by Churchianity and religious fundamentalism even of this generation.

But don't get me wrong, I think it's a silly notion too. Just for different reasons. I think it's silly to apologize for something you are still doing.
