Re: SNL attacks Christianity

Apart from being uncharacteristically funny of SNL, it sits as a good parody of a lot of poor rhetoric from the religious right (i.e. the compendium of logical fallacies that is God's Not Dead). This is not pointed at Christianity in general, but the kind that likes to paint itself as a cringing min...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

Yeah, it's not particularly diplomatic to proclaim your perspective as "God." Or is it the strawman argument that is undiplomatic? No, wait, that's just poor reasoning skills. I'd back Tony Campolo over Matt Walsh 10 out of 10 times because Campolo shows humility and an appreciation for nuance and c...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

Do you think that some Christians can believe both fully in scripture and also that homosexuality is not a sin? If not, what do you think about this position? https://www.gaychristian.net/justins_view.php (I've posted this before, but I'm curious to see not necessarily if you agree with Justin, but ...

Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

I enjoyed listening to Tony Campolo on Homosexuality, not because I agreed with him, but because his passion for truth and his humility in the search for it, and his empathy for others really shows. Listening him and his wife discuss and debate over the issue is pretty great. M5bLQ4N547Y Recently, h...

Re: I'm Bringing 'OSAS' back!

Not sure if I should jump in or not, since, for one of the first times since "the cataclysm," I now kind of have an actual dog in this fight.

Re: Fallout 4: Who's playing?

Basically, Fallout 4 is to Fallout 3/New Vegas what Skyrim was to Oblivion. Yeah, definitely the most succinct way to put it. The lack of Faction standing, I think, was a loss and it's more of shoot-all-the-raiders-and-super-mutants instead of building up for good or bad relations. The companion st...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Sorry for the tardy reply again. It's a bit unfair to drop a bomb and run off for a couple weeks. Broamir, you know I respect you, and what I said there was directed at the preening jerks who do it to try and prove their desire for intellectual superiority. I know what your journey was like, and bel...

Re: Transgender issues as a Christian

Hey, I'm not a Christian anymore so what I'm saying is certainly not the biblical perspective. And if you want to write off what I'm saying as from the devil, that's your prerogative. But, what you said about dealing with guilt and depression hit home with me. I had a lot of that in my teen years an...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Of course, intelligent people can be religious, and idiots can be atheists. And intelligent people can believe stupid things. And stupid people can believe intelligent things. The whole question really goes down the wrong path. I get why people do that. It's a peer pressure thing. It's to fit in. Yo...

Re: What Happens When the 'Moral Majority' Becomes a Minority?

Schools, as it seems, have a pretty poor record when it comes to respecting rights. The article, though, is a little misleading as it makes it seem like he was doing it off to the side. No, he was in the middle of the field and praying right after a game, as the coach. How comfortable would we be if...

Re: What Happens When the 'Moral Majority' Becomes a Minority?

No doubt there are no small amount of people or vocal power out to try to write off any criticism of Islam as "islamophobia," or, I guess... racism? This is not to say there aren't people who would judge or discriminate against Muslims out of fear and ignorance. And yes, militant Islam is, as Hitche...

Re: What Happens When the 'Moral Majority' Becomes a Minority?

Well, you asked for cases of special privileges and the like, so I was listing things off the top of my head.
Do you think our current Administration would be fighting so hard to force this if it were Muslims having an issue?
I would hope so. We know what countries under Sharia law look like.
