If there are those that are leaving the church because they don’t like the truth, then the church is teaching the right message. That is, the Gospel. Jesus never tickled the ears of those that wished to follow Him. He drew a hard line in the sand saying repent of your sins and obey me as Lord. Everyone wants a Savior, but few what a LORD. The reason they are leaving is because they don’t want to obey. It’s not about the Gospel being loving. To die for someone so as to save him is the epitome of love. Your view that the church is hateful is twisted and you are surpassing the truth in unrighteousness. But, God can forgive you if you are willing… just submit yourself wholly to Him. If you are not willing to do so, then you are one of the ones being driven from the church… only, it’s not the church’s fault. It’s yours.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error…And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper…and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

I know that not all “Christian Conservatives” are evil. Just the ones that make and vote and support those who make those religious based laws against others they don’t tolerate to live.====That’s a pretty open ended statement. That could include 99% of all conservative Christians. Pretty close to what Shanbo believes. He noted to me a few comics back that “Christians do good things…Republicans don’t, even the ones who claim to be “Christians”… you sure as hell can’t be a Republican and a Christian.” .What is your definition of an “Evil Christian” anyway?

You as well.
US laws do not just apply to Christians, nor were they designed to protect only Christians. They were created purely on the basis of protecting the citizens of this country, including Christians, Muslims, Hindus, atheist, etc. .The question you posed is a bit open ended and broad. So, to narrow it down a bit for our discussion, and to define our semantics so that we don’t argue different subjects, I will assume that you don’t mean all services nor all discrimination is bad. For example, I can legally discriminate against a known sex offender and deny him a residence if he wanted to rent a house from me that I know is to close to an elementary school. It has happened. .Understanding that, to deny someone a service and whether that is right or wrong depends on the service and the circumstance, which can vary from scenario to scenario. Not everything can be simplified down to black or white policy, but the basic premise is that the laws that have been passed in this country, until they are repealed, must be obeyed… by everyone… including Christians and non-Christians alike.
And as such, laws then must protect non-religious people from those who seek to use their religion as a basis of taking advantage or hurting others, as well as protecting religious people from anti-religious people seeking to destroy their religion by forcing them to deny their faith. Bill Clinton understood this when he passed the RFRA in 1993. And the “Strict Scrutiny” was enacted to ensure the RFRA was properly followed by all parties including the government. These standards are used to test statutes and government action at all levels of government within the United States..They question, you are asking, more specifically is: Does someone have to go against their conscious and beliefs in God, because another person is asking them to sin by providing a service they want? The answer really depends on where you draw the line in the sand right? You said you wouldn’t provide a service to produce or disseminate porn. Although I agree, who’s to say your not being a bigot for drawing the line in the sand where you decided. Did you not “Harm” the multimillion dollar institution and its patrons of the material by denying your services and or use of store front? Some argue you would. .My question to you is by what standard do you draw your line in the sand? .For me, it is God’s standard.
Greek- not green.
You resort to quoting me that I noted that God isn’t mentioned in the Constitution? What I said is that the writings that preceded the Constitution that helped form the thoughts of those making law were flooded with a strong belief in God. I proved that. What you didn’t prove was that this country was based on Green and Roman law and that Christian standards are void in the laws of this land.
I am still unaware of your point. .That Christians made way for other religions to worship freely within this country and protected this land from being a government run religion as in England doesn’t mean that the doctrines of Christianity didn’t serve as a foundation to a good majority of our laws that governing this nation. You have to turn a blind eye to see that point of view. Wasn’t that our topic of discourse?
You made the following claims:Actually, the laws of this country were strongly influenced by ancient Roman and Greek principals. Please, read the Bible. US laws were in many ways contrary to Biblical teachings..You didn’t back up any of your claims. I did however, support mine.
