How visionary for these Christians finally to proclaim that evil is bad after Jesus has been dead only a couple of millennia. True progressives indeed.

boltar, this most righteous group of civil mammals [ see the calls to compassion by the rev Floyd out of springdale on creations of the creator] may be in trouble about taking a stand on sexual abuse , misconduct , as you know their ancient book allows a lot of seed to be spread by the righteous men back then. All in a days work for doing the work of the lord.

Makes you wonder that created by obeying the ancient book on the joys of slavery and then after many actions of sexual misconduct [ having sex with slaves was considered ok as they were just animals basically, but they forgot having sex with animal both were to be killed] and mistreatment of slaves, this most holy body of biblical ILKS said, Whoops , we were wrong and so sorry . Now they take biblical stands, so the question becomes an organization created such as they were , with the basis of their reason for organizing and their continued celestial know it all for conduct of talking primates, why would lucid talking primates believe a hoover dammm what they say?

As to jesus being dead, at least the catholics withdrew their charge against the jews of killing god- note it was last century. So as to israel, if jews can kill gods why do they worry about Iran?

as to the statement of "the people of god". that sounds like trump saying that dear leader the 3rd member of the N. KOREAN TRINITY loves his people. And we all know how the baptist deity loved his people from time to time, Remember what Hitches said, you can at least frigginn die in N. Korea but the baptist dear leader will torment you forever for just hurting its feelings.
