For example, have you ever READ the sayings of Jesus? Could you see how those might square with a oneness or Monistic Idealism POV.

I am gay, and the most hated on this planet when it comes to religon. Imagine how that feels for just one moment. Its especially hard when you don't know why you are so hated, or such a threat.It all comes down to what I do in my bedroom...which is really no one's business.
I've never heard it put like that before dude bloody heartbreaking as a matter of fact.
Why or why is it so difficult for these bigoted bastards to even consider the possibility that they could be wrong ?

Let me explain something to you. A person would REALLY have to hate someone's guts to believe eternal life was possible for them but refused to share that with them.
Let me explain something to you
Amway distributors really believe they can make you wealthy, and feel it an injustice not to share that with you.
Which jesus ? Why did yoiu decide to do this ?
The character ywheh / jesus in the bibles insists upon acting in this manner to the point of should an individual reject him/it he would be put to death.
Why ? Do you lack friends or something ? Try talking about the weather or vacations perhaps, if people want to know anything about a jesus character they can do the same as you, pick up a book job done.
If you are referring to the bible character jesus, what sacrifice are you speaking of ? Sacrifice by definition requires a loss, jesus didn't die he was alive again in a couple of days and seeing how he and yawhe are alleged to be one and the same omnipresent being, then he couldn't die.
They've already made up their minds my friend, not unlike any other kids mine certainly don't listen to me but if you turned up one day trying to convince them that the bible story is real then they would demand evidence.
As we know christianity is alleged by many christians to be based on faith and providing proof (which xtianity fails to do anyhow) would make the faith null and void. So you would probably find my kids rejecting you due to lack of evidence in relation to the veracity of claims and that christianity has nothing to offer that they don't already have in their lives.
Of course there is , "freedom" to think how I please I don't want to live my life with the notion of invisible beings monitoring my every thought that's repugnant !
What makes you think I have "sinned" as you put it ? A better person!!! ? I'm doing pretty ok as I am thank you very much .
The are not my laws dude, nevertheless christianity is rooted in the old testament, not a very smart thing to do if your starting a new region. Nevertheless regaqrdless of how much xtians wriggle to get out of it they are absolutely chained to yawhe his mental health and his insane rules.
It's not easy to make me mad my friend, but I would certainly be seriously mad to pick up a bible and start believing what it says. Yes I do apply logic with a hint of reason before making decisions and as there is no evidence for the veracity of bible claims logic and reason would dictate that I reject them.
