I have said that....on many occasions. Belief is belief, be it Muslim belief or Christian belief or Fundamentalist belief or Hindu belief or whatever. It is the 'belief' that kills. ------------------------------------------------------ Such bovine excrement. Concepts can't kill, people do. Religion in and of itself is about as lethal as a baby harp seal. It's the man made institutionalization and various orthodoxies built up around the concept of religion that kill. Religion is like a hammer, a valuable tool that left to its own devices is innocuous but when wielded by the hand of man is capable of building bridges or war fleets.

You're nitpicking here. Of course, that is what I meant. We agree. But to repeat, it comes back to the 'human certainty' of belief that is the killer. Hence, as I have been trying to say, it is toleration (and, hence NON-violent understanding) of other religions that is the crucial point. And when you read Townhall with all the hateful references to 'Muslims' , "The Hussein,' etc. etc. you don't get a sense that there is a lot of toleration on a 'Christian' board such as Townhall.

Christians don't have to kill you. It is our belief that upon your first moral death you will be sentenced to eternal Hell for a second death.

Muslims OTOH must kill you if you don't believe as they do. That is in thier book. That is their creed.

Again I ask, What have Christians done to you to deserve total enmity? Why, you can't even stand some one to type Truth with captial "T". That is intolerable to you.

If you think these forums are an accurate reflection of Christians as a whole, you are god damn dreaming.

Rasmussen Reports is out with some data sure to make anti-Christmas heads spin. The vast majority of Americans believe Christmas should be focused on Jesus, not Santa.

Should Christmas be more about Jesus Christ or Santa Claus? It may seem hard to tell looking at the popular culture, but Americans overwhelmingly think the emphasis should be on Jesus.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 76% of American Adults believe Christmas should be more about Jesus. Only 14% think it should be more about Santa, but another 10% are not sure.
