You know DCFC, we're not all bad eggs I agree.It's the "good" evangelicals that do the most damage, by helping the bad guys.You believe in a personal God ? Fine.What Christians lack is a bit of the Bible of the form:God took Zebedee to one side."Lord, look I do your work"God saw the work of Zebedee. Florence was lying in a pool of blood."Why do you harm this woman ?" asks God"I did not harm her, others did", replies Zebedee."Did you follow the leader who was stupid, yea more stupid than the beetle which eats the dung of a camel""Yes", said Zebedee. "Stupid is good. Wise men are never quite sure of their faith, and the leader I might have followed did not talk of his religion every 5 minutes"."So you chose good over wise ?" Asked God."Yes" said Zebedee"And when you saw that the good man put other good men to lead important missions like saving lives, but that they were also less wise than the dung that the desert beetle eats, and people died. Did you choose another leader ? ". "No", said Zebedee, "the people who died were almost all black and poor, and we are white and rich, and we follow your word in a very very slightly different way from these people, so they don't matter. But because I am a good man, I gave $5 to their aid".You get the drift.No religion has a commandment, to think things through. ECs emote over big issues that do not face them personally, and are thus more cruel in the execution of such actions than someone who actually gets their kicks from hurting people. When they learn of suffering caused by the policies, they convenice themselves that it's a price worth paying (paid by others), or better still that the people affected are bad, so deserve it. Condom users must be bad people, and of course remember AIDS being the vegeance of God. By the way did anyone explain why God liked lesbians so much ? They were about the lowest risk group.Who really cares about people in Africa ? Many aren't any sort of Christian, a good % aren't even Moslems either. So you can be "against" condoms there, and the might of the USA can be usedto stop "evil" condom use, whilst AIDS runs riot. You can feel smug about your stand, and the media won't bore you very often with yet another film of children dying slowly in Africa. Heck, they were going to die anyway soon of something, it's Africa, right ?Abortion isn't being banned, merely only allowed for the rich. Stem cell research doesn't yet build treatments you personally can use, so doesn't matter.Creatonism is bollocks, I've seen your other posts, you're smart enough to know that.So why do you support groups who lie to children ?You are in effect helping people to deceibe children about the nature of God. I'm not a christian, but that doesn't strike me as what you guys are supposed to be about.Catholics are well intentioned, so you give money to leaders who make very sure that the RICO laws aren't used on an outfit that organised the rape of children, and it's cover up.Moslems are shits, indeed most of them don't even have the sense to be white, so torturing them is fine.If ECs wanted torture to stop in camp X-Ray it would stop so fast you couldn't measure the time lag.Note there is a bit of a theme here. Children seem to get it in the neck first when EC policies get put into practice, though poor and coloured ones don't do well either.
