Freedom is never absolute

Couldn’t agree more.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel we are much better off when basing our society on the very same Judeo-Christian values it has followed, generally. My chief complaint is centered around our inability to prove any of this stuff as being “true”, because it relies so heavily on the upbringing and experiences of individuals (as you pointed out)… there is no objective way to utilize specifics as a basis for modeling our society. Broad strokes, sure. But there are some pretty contestable aspects that are far from cut and dried.

Short story… far too many religious are far too literal on things that cannot be applied to everyone objectively.

Not to mention how academia and learning was controlled by the rich and powerful, and then also the Catholic Church, for centuries. The Bible was restricted for hundreds of years to only clergy. We have no idea who actually wrote it. No proof the claims weren’t actually entirely fabricated. Constantine combined the Christian church with the pagans in the 300s AD in order to prevent fighting within the kingdom. This is well documented. How much was pagan and how much Christian? How much made up on the spot?

We cannot take anything of this literally. What we can do is use lessons and stories passed down for generations to learn more about ourselves and maybe even God… as best as we can figure with the limited understanding provided of how the universe and its creation transpired.

I have no interest in debating someone who states his beliefs as fact… but cannot prove it as such.

Besides, the post isn’t about which, if any, religion is true… it’s about the clear failure of many here to practice the freedom of religion in full… as in, not selectively. Not biased.

The commenter clearly demonstrated their unwillingness by not only making unprovable claims… but talking as though these claims apply to everybody.

You are free to believe that.

Freedom of religion allows for me to disagree, also.

Nah. It’s more about offering an opposing view because there is far too much circlejerking around here.

Nope… you’re just embarrassed because you freaked out over a simple fact.

The other stuff is irrelevant to this post.

When you make them?

This is a high level post?

I’ve looked… you just spam stuff. Post after post every few minutes. Most of it is trash.

It’s embarrassing to the community. I think you’re doing it on purpose.

Nope. Throwing the Christ stuff and the picture in with “millions will die” is so unlike Christ and his teachings it’s laughable.

You jumping on board because it mentions Jesus is what is concerning.

Then threatening me for questioning it?

It’s a program somebody wrote to respond in a specific way when asked a specific question.

Alexa doesn’t say this.

Simmer down, guy.

Proof? Or did you hear about that through a middle-aged meme on Facebook?

aPosteriori -1 points ago +1 / -2

Nope.

It’s fake. And your response says you actually believe this stuff without doing research.

Do better.

Fake. And stupid.

Of course it’s BQnita posting bullshit like this.

This is nonsense. My wife is a nurse in a hospital and it’s clear that most are drinking the koolaid.

they know and just don’t care

What a load of bullocks. These types of generalizations are so stupid they’re laughable.

This evil “other” stuff has to stop. Nothing is that simple…black and white… cut and dried. And until we can learn nuance and compromise and…communication… nothing will improve.
