Quote from: Do you think it was angels? on February 19, 2011, 02:05:59 PMI am not a moral relativist, or a cultural relativist, but a religious one, because if a religion is called to account for every interpretation of its scripture, they are all bizarre.What folks do is compare the nicey-nice sects of religion A to the hardcore sects of religion B, and find the differences they're looking for, to satisfy their prejudices.
Quote from: Do you think it was angels? on February 19, 2011, 02:22:55 PMApples to apples, man! Compare everything that's been done in Jesus' name, to everything that's been done in Mohammed's name. You won't find too much difference then.

Any time you find a religion that decides being a "peculiar" people is going to get them noticed, they are surrounded by a ring of comedians and I am determined to bring the funniest to my Coastgab friends. Recently a fellow exMormon posted on Amazon a review of the Book of Mormon done in Book of Mormon-style writing punctuated by comedic barbs. Stay tuned.

Quote from: JustOneFix on February 19, 2011, 09:08:14 PMMay as well add me to that list, here I am an Atheist reading a Mormon thread while sitting here drinking a cold beer listening to Somewhere in Time. Works for me.....

Quote from: onan on February 19, 2011, 07:04:46 PMThree people from work have called to find out how I am doing and offered help if I need it, all 3 are muslim.
Quote from: onan on February 19, 2011, 07:04:46 PMI agree with your position. I have several Muslim friends by every measure I find they seem more forgiving more tolerant and sensitive than my christian coworkers. Anecdotely I have to have surgery this coming week and have taken the last several days off to rest before going into the hospital. Three people from work have called to find out how I am doing and offered help if I need it, all 3 are muslim. Not a scientific poll, I know... just sayin.I do not trust anyone that categorizes groups into targets to fear, hate, or vilify. It is way too easy to fall into that trap. Are there people out there to fear? absolutely, I wonder though what is being broadcast to people in the middle east to pander to them? A picture of cheney riding a cross with two missle launchers akimbo. ok probably not that.
Quote from: onan on February 20, 2011, 07:43:03 PMthanks for the concern... no, just a series of surgeries to fix my trachea... due to a surgery many years ago because I was intubated too tightly my trachea has narrowed to the diameter less than a straw... blehyeah will be fine just a pain in the neck (literally) and recovery
