10th October 2010

“Demonstrating love has always been easier for evangelicals when it is highly conditional or in the abstract. The practical love of trying to make the world a more inclusive, kinder, compassionate place for everyone, where friendship is put before enmity and trust before fear is for many evangelicals dangerous nonsense.”

    Jesus was all about the love apparently.
    Love you guys x

    @ PEB Love you, too (no homo :P)

    Actually, this is very true from my observances. I’ve yet to meet an Evangelical that wasn’t selfish in their quest for love, and had a very tough time actually understanding the concept of love or even basic friendship. Apparently “love thy neighbor” must only refer to loving only the neighboring brain cell?

    I’ve heard this many times. My Favorite Fundamentalist labeled a communist when I put forth ideas concerning the greater good.

    PEB you might find some disagreement there. MFF makes it very clear that Jesus is coming back with a sword when I bring up the fact that many Christians talk about Jesus as love. It completely kills my argument when he does that blah!

    All you know is to shout Nonsense. Nothing depicted in the Qoran is right to you. Teleportation for example, already cited by Mohammad during King Solomon’s era. How could Mohammad know anything about science?

    Feel free to teleport yourself.

    Maybe they should have mentioned HOW to do it huh? Man that would be sweet. T-port to work, or to a museum, Dawkins lectures, no cars on the road or planes in the sky. T-port groceries into my refrigerator. T-port my dog to the vet, kids to soccer practice. Man, can muslims really do that?
