BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
The difference is Islam actively enforces it. Christians in Africa are free to do as they please, even if the Pope doesn't like it.
I was born and raised Catholic...
Like posting on the Internet to prove they are wrong? That kind of influence?
Do you believe in heaven/hell? Do your parents believe in God?
If your faith is so fragile that you can't handle an internet message board, I don't feel particularly bad for you.
And no, that's not influence any more than Wal-Mart advertisements have influence. Influence, is like trying to teach christianity-based creationism and other nonsense in schools, and getting the government to legally require other people to help you do so.
They're being punished, grantedly by themselves, for being more devout in their beliefs than other Christians who have common sense.
Parents are religious (mom protestant, dad catholic).
Contraceptives aren't banned by the Bible. It's the Vatican that has the problem with them.
Most Catholics just ignore it. At any rate the Church can't be blamed for individual choices.
What do you think happens when you die? Just physically break down in the ground, afterlife? Anything else
Parents are religious--meaning they believe in God, go to church, believe in heaven or hell? or go to church on Christmas and Easter? Religious and Christians are 2 different things to me
My faith is not fragile at all, nor is it effected by this or any message board. I was just pointing out the contradiction in your statement. As with the above, since you are so quick to jump into nearly every thread that mentions the Bible or Christianity and then proceed to try to disprove.

So the more frequently you have nothing to do on Sunday mornings affects your Christianness?
Like removing prayer from schools or teaching evolution?
"What do you think happens when you die?"
The question presumes that *something* happens after we die.
I have no idea for sure (no one does), since we haven't died. The most logical way to go presume it is that it would be like before you were born, aka, nothing. But I can't know for sure.
"Parents are religious--meaning they believe in God, go to church, believe in heaven or hell? or go to church on Christmas and Easter?"
My mom is protestant and my dad is catholic. They are christians. I don't live at home, so I don't know how often they go to church.
Prayer is not banned from schools. Evolution is a science, Intelligent Design is not.
Prayer isn't removed from schools. If you want to pray, you can. Your teacher can't lead a prayer because that's government endoresment of 1 religion, which influences people of others or of no religion.
If you want to start a voluntary prayer group/pray at your desk/basically whatever you want so long as you aren't forcing someone have to pray or single them out as someone not praying, you can.
And we teach science in schools. Evolution is science. If that offends you, you can homeschool your kids (and some people do). But scientists aren't going to compromise on truth in order to appease a bunch of bronze age myths.
Lol at the atheist and libtards making fools of themselves, once again.
Bibles have no place in public schools. Just my
would be ok in a religions of the world or literature class.
Disagree. If someone wants to keep a bible in their backpack or locker or read from it on their own time, that's their right.
Bibles shouldn't be used as subject matter in a science or history class. I could see them being used as subject matter in a literature class as long as it presented as an influential work of fiction.
Thank you for the lesson, but that wasn't the point of the post and I am pretty sure you know it. Evolution is not a science, by the way, Evolution is a theory.
Very sad that you are a pastor if I'm interpreting your handle correctly...
It's a science. Theory and science are not mutually exclusive.

Theories are part of the scientific process, you mean it's not law.
Apparently there is no such thing as science since 'Theories' are the main vehicle of scientific discovery. Maybe you have heard of atomic theory, gravitational theory, population theory, thermodynamic theory, etc....
