You just made my day, telling me that I'm featured on one of your Christian bashing web sites. That truly makes me happy. I hope you'll post this over there, too.
"You make it sound like a prison sentence where any sign of openmindedness is punished."
And how do I do that? Is it because I don't tell you how wonderful you are, what with your Drag Queen Story Hours, and your Baskin Robbins approach to human sexuality?
Because I HATE the filth and perversion, the sick and twisted garbage, that you and your ilk are pushing on society, these days?
You like the fake Christians who go along with you for a little pat on the head. The one's who have sold their souls for just a little feigned acceptance from the cool kids.
I don't care one wit what you think of me. Christ told His followers that they would be hated, like He was. He told us to rejoice and be glad when people said bad things about us for His sake, for our reward in Heaven will be great because of it.
Yes, I am angry, but NOT full of self pity. I PITY YOU!
Nevertheless, I start out on low. I try to give your friends every opportunity to back up what they say, and they NEVER EVER do. They just start telling me what a meany I am. They can't even answer the simplest questions. That was the case with Gwen Mistelbacher, despite your misrepresentation of that exchange. I was the one who repeatedly tried to get her to answer my questions regarding her statements, and she continually refused, and kept attacking me.
I suppose Heaven will be like prison to you if you hate goodness, decency, and purity. On the other hand, if Heaven is anything like what you people are trying to make American society like, then I don't even want to go. You've turned this place into Hell.
Do you think it's a good thing that my young grand daughters have to share the restroom with grown men? If you do, you are truly twisted, and I have every reason to be angry about that. That's a prison sentence!
Don't talk to me about how I make Christianity look to you. You make your worldview look like wicked madness to me, which it is.
And YES, you are lost. Why would you think you're the exception? Do you think you're better than everyone else in the world?
You don't even need Christians, or the Bible to see it, just look around. If you can't see that there is something seriously wrong with the whole human race, you're out of touch with reality. The very fact that we are arguing is itself an indicator that something is wrong.
Look at all the violence, the chaos, the rage, the sexual abuse, the hate, filth, greed, addictions, wars, etc.
The whole human race is broken, and in need of redemption. You're not special. That's what Christ came for.
The whole human race has been condemned long before Christ was even born. You aren't going to be condemned because you were just a good little boy just going along, minding your own business, until God, wanting to make you jump through some arbitrary hoop demanded, for no apparent reason, for you to believe in Christ or perish. That's not at all how it works. That's just another Satanic lie.
That would be like a drowning man getting mad at me for setting arbitrary conditions, just because I threw him a life preserver, and told him to grab it. He wasn't drowning because he didn't want the life preserver, he was ALREADY drowning! The life preserver was for his salvation.
Christ is that life preserver. Humanity was already drowning before he came along. You're not going to get condemned for rejecting Him, you are already condemned. You are just going to pass up salvation by rejecting Him. BUT, since you're that one perfect human being in the world, I guess you've got nothing to worry about.

FSTDT isn't a Christian bashing site. It takes the absolute worst elements of extreme religion, racism and sexism and puts it on display. What you are about is not Christianity. What you are about is fundamentalism.
Brian, I don't HAVE drag queen story hours. I don't approve of exposing children of that age to drag queens until they reach an age of understanding ssexuality, period. You're taking the worst elements of the things that both you and projecting them on all atheists, or at least all people you hate. As for a "Baskin Robbins approach to human sexuality", no I don't. I don't say anything any more or less radical than what tested, accepted science tells us. There are homosexuals in this world. Let them be homosexuals and stop trying to "fix" them according to your religion. Just because you adopt a faith doesn't mean you get to inflict it on those who choose not to follow it.
I don't have any "filth" or "sick and twisted garbage". If you think someone's sick and twisted garbage because they're born homosexual, YOU are the sick one - science will tell you so too - and you need to deal with your own demons.
"You like the fake Christians who go along with you for a little pat on the head."
And who are THOSE, Brian? What's a fake Christian, and HOW DARE YOU call them so just because you can't agree with them? And how do you ever come to understand them if you BLOCK them as you do everyone you seem to encounter here? How do you even function in the real world with a rotten attitude like that?
Yes, you are full of self-pity. Poor you, who can't understand why the rest of the world doesn't want to heap scorn and hatred on people not exactly like you are.
"I try to give your friends every opportunity to back up what they say, and they NEVER EVER do."
I've seen what you do. You frame a question in such a way that you want a VERY specific answer, which people either don't have the patience to figure out what you want, or is impossible to answer, and they don't do it, and you block them. What the hell is the matter with you? Gwen didn't refuse, her last request as to what your question was was entirely respectful. You mocked her for not knowing and blocked her, which takes real cowardice.
NO I don't think it's good that your granddaughters have to share a restroom with grown men. You never asked me. You assumed the worst, Brian. That's what you do. The thing is, normal homosexuals wouldn't disagree with you either but you find them so revolting in concept you don't even give them the time of day.
The whole human race isn't "broken". You just see things in it you don't like, and are demanding they be fixed YOUR way, with intolerance and hatred and anger. I look at the things in this world that I don't like and ask questions, forge relationships, and work positively to solve them. I don't say "well you don't belong to the same faith I do so get lost sinner". Does that sound like anyone YOU know, Brian?
And for the love of God stop calling people and situations "Satanic" just because they aren't exactly what you want them to be. There are a million other reasons to explore before you need to start invoking a Satan most people don't even believe in.
If you can't live peacefully with people who believe differently than you do, you deserve all the name calling you have incurred.
Now you're going to block me, and I will be vindicated.
