I know what I believe and I am confident of it. Don't tell me I can't decide what to believe; that's another lie.
You clearly don't understand it, but then again you couldn't really fully understand it without being a Christian anyway.
You've lied and slandered christians out of your bigotry.
It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." Luke 16:17
You don't understand the bible, you don't understand the price paid by Christ because you don't believe in it in the first place, stop trying to pretend like you know what you're talking about. It's the height of arrogance to project your incorrect interpretation of the Bible onto Christians and then use that against us as an excuse to hate us and seek our prosecution for stating our beliefs.
You don't understand what the "instruction manual" says in the first place. I believe it 100%, but it's not your place to assume what that means out of your own ignorance.
But at least (some) Christians are peaceful about it. Try being openly gay in Iran without being executed. It's tough.

What part of "on topic" do you not understand?
And how the hell is discussing homosexuality and the bibles not on the same topic as " Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin" may I ask ?
We're meant to follow the new testament....
Jesus wasn't for murder of anybody just to forgive people of their sins........i can't wait to read your response.
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

People have a right to chose education or not. It doesn't matter if you think it holds people back. Many things hold people back mentally and physically, and likewise you have no right to enforce or destroy those things either.
The fact is this. Society is free. You can say what you want. Unless you go and yell fire in a theater and cause a stampede, you are free to still say what you want. Viewing homosexuality as wrong is just as much as viewing ADD as wrong. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks. Words are free to be expressed until it causes physical harm. Even then, you charge the specific people, you do not ban it from ever being said again. More people died from the words on the declaration of independence then I care to think. It too is not banned.
Conclusion: live with it.

There is no talk of micro organisms either, but the average person would know that life, all of it was created by God. The Earth is over 4.5 billion years old. God could have created many species before man was created."""
But the bible is still full of false accounts such as the world being flat and that unicorns are real. Science has proven the bible to be a work of fiction and no amount of arguing is going to change the facts.

That sounds like anything, not necessarily a dinosaur. The passage is vague, as is much of the biblical writings. We could be looking at a dinosaur, or a monster, or a dragon, or a space alien slug, or any number of fake mythical creatures.
Furthermore the fact that you have to make a backhanded insult to claim that anybody who disagrees with you is an idiot seems to suggest that you yourself really don't believe with as much certainty as you let on.
