    Are we back onto sodomy again?

    I found a dead mouse in bucket of water in my garage at the weekend.

    Maybe it thought it was jesus and found out the hard way that it wasn’t?

    Its the spirit of the law not the letter of the Law that is important in Christianity.

    Matthew 19:24

    Jesus- “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

    Somebody better tell the torries, their economic policy is against the word of god!

    i found a dead mouse in a bucket in the garden the other day.

    mice are everywhere!

    No, that’s disingenuous. You could prove it quite easily if there was any proof to be had. Absolute disproof isn’t possible.

    For example. If I found a mouse in my house, I could prove I had mice. Or if I found mouse droppings, that would make me think I might have mice.

    In the absence of those things, it’s a fairly safe bet that I don’t have mice. I have no reason to suspect that I might have mice, and an unshakable faith that I did, in fact, have mice despite having no evidence to back that up, would be somewhere between illogical and paranoid. Yet, I cannot prove that I don’t have mice.

    Excellent. This thread has already progressed onto whether there is a God or not. I predict countless pages of pointless pontification.

    I don’t really want to think too much about what rich boys in parliament are entering.

    Are you suggesting the mice were performing baptism’s when something went horribly wrong?

    I was complaining that it was inconsistent. Thanks for backing me up. (-:

    Of course it has, it’s a religion thread on STW. Anyone forcing you to read it?

    (Pontification, very good!)

    So he has time to talk on religion but still hasn’t found the time to talk about illegal use of 10 Downing street and effectively people paying to get their agenda/interests up there. Right.

    perhaps god got his wedge out and slapped it on the table ?

    pretty much all religious texts can be taken any way you want and for eg. can be used by both sides of a bloody conflict as proof that each side has their chosen deity’s backing.

    True, but even if you took religion out of it these things would still happen there’d just be a different excuse. Fundamentalists can say whatever they like to me, sometimes I’ll debate with, sometimes not, but they’re not changing my mind.

    Ah yes maybe it was a private meet/lobby to get his message up on and out there by buying Cameron to speak for him.

    Bear in mind David Macaroon was speaking at an Easter reception. Easter being a Christian thing.

    I think you’ll find that Eastre pre-dates Christianity by quite a bit

    Only problem is, you’re assuming your ‘belief’ that it’s a fairy story is correct …

    Difference is, I’m open to any evidence you might have to the contrary.

    Nooooooo! We’ve tried that before somewhere on here, most recently the Angry atheists thread… turns out you can’t prove or disprove God.

    What drivel – the whole thing (bible) is fictional tosh – or at best a contradoctory, handed down, biased set of ramblings written a few hundred years after the “facts”.

    OK – proving / disproving god – difficult. Proving a negative always is, so lets assume there is a tinsy, tinsy possibility that god = True.

    However, irrespective of that metaphysical line of equiry turns out, the rest of it is fairy tale…

    Where shall we start…

    Ahh yes, I “remember” it well, ’twas in the late summer of my great, great, great, great, great grandfather’s years in Judea, A.D. 33, Saturday afternoon, about tea time….

    Ohh what happened???

    Scribe 1

    Well, these Romans, see, they got fed up with this bloke spouting on about having a second coming – so they nailed him to a bit of wood and hung him out to die. @cept he didn’t die – was seen down town 3 days later, had a big nosh up with his mates and then shot off up into the sky in a big flash

    Wow – fab story, write it down. our kids might forget it if it’s passed down word of mouth like it has been for the last 400 years. I reckon that’ll be the next bestseller….

    Of course it’s all true

    perhaps god got his wedge out and slapped it on the table

    so he did decide to

    do God

    in private as well as

    in public

    True, but even if you took religion out of it these things would still happen

    oh yeah no doubt about it. What you believe is probably very different to what every other Christian believes. Religion can be all things to all men. So it’s a bit dodgy you saying which are the most important bits of your religion.

    And why I have a deep mistrust of any religious spokes person who purports to speak for his/her people/congregation.

    If he starts all this religion stuff in parliament he’ll have George Galloway opposing him, dressed in a burka

    After dedicating his election victory to Allah, I’m assuming he’s muslim. George wouldn’t do shameless opportunism as he’s a man of principle

    By all means be nice to people as far as practical -I try to be.

    Don’t however do it because of the contents of a book of contradictory, many times interpreted, ancient text centred around the threat of eternal damnation.

    How many other 2000+ year old manuals would you refer to for guidance?

    Anyone forcing you to read it?

    Well I thought it would be rude not to, since I posted on thread before it moved onto whether there is a God or not.

    But a good point anyway Cougar.

    I have arrived at the conclusion that CallMeDave is a vapid fekwit who is making stuff up as he goes along and even then, doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    I think the correct summary of Cameron is “Jesus wept”

    As a PR man he is whatever he thinks his audience want him to be. Curry a bit of favour with god botherers? why not

    people picking on TJ…again, shocker

    I can’t even believe he quoted the “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – the cheek of him.

    I hope he remembers this if one day he loses all his millions, becomes destitute, sick or disabled, and he has to live under the rules his own government made, go through the humiliation of an Atos assessment, experience the ineptitude of a Jobcentre, or stack shelves for free in a supermarket.

    It’s not likely to happen of course, but I’d love for this guy to experience what it’s like not to be rich and privileged and have to muddle along with everyone else, and then he might understand that quote he is chucking around to try and make himself look good.

    Being a Christian is more than just going to church or paying nonsense lip service to Bible quotes it’s about living your values, Jesus valued everyone no matter whether they were rich or poor, Cameron doesn’t give a monkeys about anyone who isn’t in his millionaires club.

    Camels and eyes of needles anyone?
