How do you reconcile that with the fact that Christendom as a whole is well respected and the vast majority of it's adherents have no real opposition to their worshiping as they please?
Just a thought I had reading the Catholic or Christian thread...
first of all christians and catholics,,sooo not the same thing
secondly they are being persecuted,
well just look at the peace loveing muslims in iran,
they been blowing up churches and killing people in the name of allah.
also you can see right here in the threads i start
im named a homophobe,bigot,racest,womanizer and the like
just for saying what the bible already says.
it's the world and it's right here at your door
wanna see it closer ??
start a thread right here in this section
stateing a godly statute from the bible,and in 5 minites there will be at least 3 people argueing with you saying
that you do not understand the bible,
and that jesus was tolerant and accepting.
and they will never agree that god has rules and that ,if your his, you will follow them.
want to experence comflict ??? stand up for what is right..
