Oh come on the issues with the WBC never fade, if they think you are ignoring them, they up the anttie. It does cause harm after a while you know.
As previously stated they deserve everything that is done to them,. They give religion a bad name as a whole.
i understand but if no one is playing, it's wasted energy. 300 years ago, catholic professors decided the ancient world was a myth, based on a
mistake made by one of the higher critics, who claimed the ancient greeks couldn't write. (it had a snowball effect) they were wrong, but today, the
ancient world is still interpreted thru the lens of 300 year old mistakes, made before the advent of science or archaeology. what this means is,
religion had a bad name 300 years ago. anything new is just fuel for the fire.
it should be pertinent to note here that it is ever so easy to make mince meat out of a topic if you're controlling all its aspects. for example,
being the preparer, the defender and then the prosecutor
if that doesn't make sense to you, look at it this way: modern debate calls it "the strawman." that's what we have going on now as regards
biblical interpretation and as a result, religion in general: the biggest strawman in human history.
anyway, that people still use the info in the bible as an excuse to abuse other people, is a big warning sign, like when your buddy starts acting
uncharacteristically, you don't think "oh that's normal for him." you think "what's wrong with my bud?"
