    Oh no I understand what you meant. I'm just saying regardless, whatever rule christianity has on anything, they should only impact christians, not everybody else in a society. Assuming it's a society with freedom of religion that is.
    ooh i thought you were disputing what i was saying. tbh i don't think that mariage should be a legal... why should it matter to them who lives with whom. but again i can see why they do it

    Well, marriage had nothing to do with religion. They just took it and claimed it theirs.

    It should not concern the state at all. If you want to marry only a certain (type) of person(s) for whatever reason (religion, sexism, sexual preference, money, love, sex, etc) then sure the hell do it as long as it's (a) legal adult(s) you're marrying to with his/her/their consent.

    It is, and should be, essentially a civil contract with self-defined clauses. If the state wants nuclear families, then reward those who actually house children, not those who merely signed a document which does not lead to one.

    You also like the big D, ie Richard Dawkins? :eek: He has so many followers...
    Something tells me that's not the kind of D he was referring to. :mmm:

    It's never ceased to amaze me how some Christians justify their prejudice through a Jewish text written centuries ago; Leviticus being the go-to chapter of the Bible for hardcore Christians rejecting homosexuality. What many fail to realise, though, is that Jesus himself never said anything about homosexuality.

    I love all his works on Evoltuitonary Biology the man has a gift and I can't wait for his next work in the field.

    He is a painfully bad Philosopher and Theologian however.



    I'm just saying I was under the impression that all the homophobic mentions followed the Old Testament (ie either from them, or a result of the mentions from it).
    Nay sadly.

    Paul however did, and Christianity is as much based on the Theology of Paul as it is on the words of Christ.

    Notice I did say 'follower' not 'fan'.

    So you indeed follow the big D.

    ---

    I fear he doesn't seem to be planning to publish any book in the field, seeing how his latest work is the first part of his autobiography. (And that I doubt he has the research funding as well as equipments needed for anything major now that he's no longer a hired academic.)

    So you indeed were referring to Paul. When I said the ideas were developed from the OT, I meant they came from Paul's (and all his imposters) interpretation which in many ways was based on the OT.

    So were they not?

    Nope they were New Testament themes, Paul was rigid in his rejection of the OT and it's standards.

    Jesus is just a spokesperson for the brand. Like with all other spokespersons of everything else, their opinions do not matter.
