majority of liberals are christian? did you take a poll?

 wicca? I don't consider it a religion, it isn't comparable to christianity,judaism, no God. it is a man made cult.

I have not insulted any religion. but go ahead and keep reaching.

I still believe the pope is wrong, for the reasons I stated. But I am not allowed an opinion? think about it. a leader of a denomination that worships the Creator does not believe life came about according to the bible and God he is supposed to be following.

reread my posts on why I only listed the nyt. read slower this time.

Statistics Fish..... No poll needed.

Wicca IS a religion, recognized by the U.S Government, and insisting it isn't, your opinion, IS insulting to all that practice it.  To many people Judaism, and Christianity are man made cults, and you get insulted when people state that!

Pope John Paul, and the Catholic people NEVER said G_D was not the Creator, just that evolution is a PROVEN fact.  You are saying that Pope John Paul, and every Catholic that believes in evolution does not worship the Creator....."a leader of a denomination that worships the Creator does not believe life came about according to the bible and God he is supposed to be following."  That IS insulting!  I'm not Catholic and I find it very insulting!

You're listing of the NYT was to "prove" the media hates Christians.  THEY WERE REPORTING A NEWS STORY THAT WAS HAPPENING AT THAT TIME, just like other news media around the world, as I pointed out!

I agree.... Judaism, Christianity, Islam, etc...... man made, male dominated (which is obvious by reading the "Holy Scriptures"), and very destructive in the hands of most!

nope, christianity and judaism are God made.
I don't get insulted, show me where! People can believe what they wish,God made us all free agents to believe as we will. accountability will come later.
Did I say the pope does not worship God? nope, keep twisting,won't work.

God isnt real, jesus was a man, and the bible conviently leaves out the parts of jesus's life that suggest his mortality.  If jesus really was the son of god why isnt his FULL life documented in the bible, also why leave out he had a wife and kids?  Man how would they ever refer to jesus's kids in the bible if they had to? The son of the son of god went down to the river........that would be like 1 billion more pages to an already useless history book.

proof villian?

http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/tomb/tomb.html Jesus tomb has been found as well as the bodies of his family.  You ask for proof from non-believers siting your proof as a believer is faith and a book written by man hundreds and hundreds of years ago.  What proof is that? 
 
Just another thought as well, If god made man in his own image, in what image did he make women? Where did he get the idea of bigger breasts and the female reproductive system?

The bible is not proof of GOD. That is why it is called faith.  The bible doesnít answer a lot of the questions. There were a lot of books left out such as the Gnostic books that men decided didnít belong.  I have no problem with believers or non-believers other than the fact they both can be a pain in the -. If people would allow others to worship how they wanted as long as it did hurt others things would be better.  I also think atheists should be quiet on certain subjects such as the 10 commandments being on government buildings. What does it hurt? They are good rules to live by whether you believe in god or not.  Building that were built hindered (s) years ago that have them should be ok. If the people that wrote the constitution didnít have a problem with why should they.  If they answer is because the constitution says separation of church and state, see previous sentence. Of course atheists probably thing I should be quiet on the subject of atheists.

It is a tv show about the finding of his tomb and what was found there.  You know, physical evidence.

The problem isn't the ten commandments being in a government building, the prblem is that it is a Christian belief and people of other faiths should not have Christianity forced upon then, nor have their tax money be spent do do such.

You know what, screwíem. Now you know Iím not a religious person by any means. But this country was founded on Christian beliefs. To claim any different is to deny history.  The first people here came here to practice Christian beliefs the way they wanted to. Schools in the old days taught people how to read from the bible. In a lot of homes the only book a family might own was the bible. Our presidents use the bible to swear in. if walking into a building that some religious symbol on it offends you too bad. If itís there leave it alone, donít put it on a new building I donít have a problem with that.  People say that it is forcing a religion on them. No itís not. When I see the Star of David I donít get mad.  When you drive by a synagogue or church do you feel like because that building can be seen that it is forcing their faith on you?  No one is denied the right to believe in whatever faith they want as long as they are not hurting others or practicing stuff that is against the law.  I agree with Coyote donít spend my tax dollars to remove something that has been there for years.  People talk about because they can see it that it forcing a belief on them. They should consider themselves lucky to be living in this day and age where times have caught with allowing people there rights to believe how they want. It wasnít that long ago people were being burned or drowned for being a witch or heretic.  There are bigger problems then some words that were carved into a building a long time ago.
