...that seems sort of non-sequitur-ish. Explain, please? Not to be hatin'.

While I agree that the idea f the bible as a moral compass is far more palatable than as a specific description of real-life events, I think it should be noted that people can be good without the Bible, and people can also be terrible within Biblical law.

I'm not a Christian, and I still know what is right and what is wrong. Do not hurt others- do not steal, violate, kill, etc. I don't need a Bible to guide my actions, and yet my actions are still those of a good person.

I'm straight.

Also, I've never attacked anyone in my life. You have the right to your beliefs, which i may or may not agree with, and I have the right to mine.

Also, I don't understand your story- did you shoot blanks at them? What sort of sixteen year old were you, with three previous assaults? A violent lunatic? Also, two sons at sixteen? Huh, that sounds quite chaste to me.

And if homosexuals said to you that you had no rights, wanted to stone you, etc., then you would be angry. You're angry for far less. Being gay doesn't make you a god-hater, nor does being straight make you a Christian. Acceptance is important, and you seem to be really, really short on that trait!

Intolerance is hurting others for their beliefs. Intolerance is using offensive language because you can- whether it's about one's race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

And if you hate gay people so much, move to the Middle East! they don't have that problem there.

Hold the phone, logical? Could you explain, please?

The minimum length for an argument is 50 characters. The purpose of this restriction is to cut down on the amount of dumb jokes, so we can keep the quality of debate and discourse as high as possible.

Killing animals for food? Not necessarily murder. Hunter-gatherers took down the slow and injured of herds, as do natural predators, and no one calls that murder. However, factory farming is disgusting, cruel, and environmentally unsound. The "meat is murder" viewpoint is a luxury of modern farming, and those who do not have access to the resources we do need meat in their diet for protein; however, they kill and process it.

I think that to eat meat, one should have to process it him/herself, and be very aware of where it came from and how it lived, as well as make up for the carbon cost of eating it.

I must say that I do not do this myself, before anyone asks. And to some extent this is hypocrisy. Flay me for it, whatever.
