In response to:

It's Always Open Season on the Christian Faith

Dear Douglas. Might I suggest that if the more strident elements of liberal agnosticism are gaining any foothold during this presidential election they were offered a crack in the door by substantial and sometimes virulent Christian Evangelical criticism of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? I have often observed anti-religionists have piggybacking their comments on a "Christian" opposing Mormons by stating that "all religions are illogical and ridiculous." If Christians expect tolerance and understanding they will only gain it through practicing the same. I believe in the Golden Rule. Do you?

You can suggest it, but the reality is that anti-religionists will always oppose Christianity anyway.

Besides, like it or not, Christians have the right, and indeed the duty, to expose false religions, whether unrelated ones like Islam or false versions of Christianity like LDS.

DCM: Darn tootin’! It’s about time someone told all the non-Catholics how wrong they are.

If that bit of irrelevance is meant to be a rebuttal of some kind, it fails.

DCM: No, it was a satirical response to show the ridiculousness of your position. You appear to feel justified in calling out religions which you think are “false religions” yet take umbrage when the same is done to you or done by someone with whom you don’t agree. And it didn’t fail as it clearly shows you for the hypocrite that you are.

Yo, DE, is it your belief that Catholisim encompasses all Christianity? I'm not Catholic and thoroughly believe that it's not only a Christians right but it's a responsibility to call out false prophets or anything that proves to be destructive to our society.

Patriot: No, it wouldn’t be satire if that was true. Nor is it the position of RCC to make such a claim. But I don’t see how you can have any problem with someone who views you as an infidel since you consider it to be you right and responsibility to call out false prophets. After all, you’re not a hypocrite are you?

Love the name. What does it mean?

Why do they view me as an infidel? Have you asked that question?

Also there's a huge difference in calling out false prophets and killing those who you perceive as "infidels".

Patriot: Yes, I have studied that greatly. The answer is: your religious ideology differs from their and they disapprove of the differences.

And yes, there is a huge difference between killing someone and calling them a name. But we are not talking about that. We are discussing how some folks find it a right and responsibility to judge others but do not approve of the same being done to them.

You are not addressing the issue or answering my question. You are equivocating

If you are talking about the question that was asked at the end of daddy o's post:
"If Christians expect tolerance and understanding they will only gain it through practicing the same. I believe in the Golden Rule. Do you? "

You might want to pose that question the people that's plotting to destroy Western Civlilization as we speak. It seems that it's they who are pushing for one way tolerance.

Patriot: No, I’m talking about the questions aimed at you and addressed directly to you.

You certainly are good at making big statements but come up short on supporting them.

piggeybacked not backing. Apologies for the grammatical faux pas.

At what point in a nation where approximately 80% of the citizens identify themselves as "Christians" will Christian candidates defend themselves and their faith from the bigoted and deliberate smears of far-left journalists?

The latest attack comes courtesy of Time magazine. During an interview with Republican Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, liberal editor Belinda Luscombe amazingly asks:

In New York City, which you're visiting for a couple of days, a lot of our taxi drivers are Sikhs. If you get one, are you going to give them a slightly bigger tip?"

Are you kidding me? Did this far-left "journalist" just...
