Are atheists/agnostics more moral than Christians?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Actually, she is female - and she doesn't share her umbrellas with ignoramuses or bigots.
But keep practicing those "people skills" :dyinglaughing:

She's a lady, so having a little umbrella in the glass wouldn't be fruity. I'm thinking she's a no-fuss bacardi breezer kinda gal.

Are you actually insinuating that I am an abomination, or I am mean "gay"? I might be an abomination, but I am purely hetero.

Actually I love my wine... but not by the case... maybe a bottle though on a good night. At least when I am socilaizing with other people that are going to hell right along with me.

My fave also, I just had you pictured as drinking out of a bottle.. I guess you could drink out of a bottle of wine too, be sure to take it out of the brown paper bag - it's classier ;)

Crass Nebula, you really don't have a very good opinion about Christians do you? I can almost gaurantee that there are no Christians hiding under your bed or in your closet with a large kitchen knife waiting to carve you up into little peices. They don't suck your blood and they don't turn into hairy dogs with big teeth either.

You seem to be confused about who the real bad guys are. It's more likely the mad men in Korea and Iran who are about to go nuclear and are dying to blow something up. Or the Muslim terrorists dressed as a business man sitting next to you on an airliner. The good Christian armies of the United States and Canada will do their best to protect you from harm, and young men and woman are dying every day towards that end. But for crying out loud, identify who your real enemy is and stop obsessing about a few bad apples.

Good Christian armies? No, those would be our federal armed forces not a Christian army.. Unless you are talking about the KKK who commonly refers to themselves as a Christian army but I don't think they accomplish anything good.

I keep a flask in my coat pocket. I do drink out a glass until I get too inebriated and miss my mouth. Then the bottle is much easier to deal with. I like wine with twist caps, makes it easier to go loiter at public parks and get smashed.

I am going to hell, but it can't be that much warmer the K town...

Unfortunately, you don’t present a good picture. I know a good number of educated and intelligent Christians, but regrettably, you feed the negative stereotype.

The real bad guys are the people who promote and perpetuate ignorance, intolerance and bigotry. The real bad guys look just like the guy you see in the mirror every morning.

BoneHead (love your icon), you like that word 'bigot' don't you? You use it every single time you write something, bigot, bigot, bigot, bigot. You also resort to a lot of name calling, I assume because you have nothing more meaningly or insightful to offer. Like a little school boy it always comes down to that level of maturity with you doesn't it? I hear there is a forum about 'Sand Boxes' under the 'Little Kids' section that might be more up your alley. Then you can call people names, stamp your feet and have a real nice hissy fit and it will be nice for you. They don't use big words over there like 'gymnasium' so you'll be able to follow along easily. Just trying to help you out sonny.

Bigot: A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices.

That word perfectly describes the manner in which you behave.

Name calling? Like this?:

Thanks. It represents evolution (or lack thereof).

Actually no, but it certainly fits in your case. Is that as uncomfortable for you as you make it seem ? I would certainly hope so. Don't have the guts to really evaluate that idea though, do you ?

I'll pray for you to find the courage and strength [-o< ( "please God, help little Johnny" )

:wink: Well we certainly know this has nothing to do with maturity for you does it John ?
