  • What makes a cult?

    They deleted this the last time I asked it because I was "insulting other partisipants," apparently, so I'll just leave that line out. What makes a cult? Is it simply any religion other than your own? How do you know your religion isn't a cult? Please explain your answers.

    ...if a young child plays a violent video game, clearly marked as Mature on the box? The makers of the video game? Or the parents of the child, who bought him/her the game without checking to see what they were buying? Please explain your views.

  • Is this law Bush signed something that a Christian would do?

    I'll post a link to an article about it, but for those who don't like to follow links, here's the main point of the law: "It allows the government to seize individuals on American soil and detain them indefinitely with no opportunity to challenge their detention in court.

    I'll post a link to an article about it, but for those who don't like to follow links, here's the main point of the law: "It allows the government to seize individuals on American soil and detain them indefinitely with no opportunity to challenge their detention in court. And the new law would permit an individual to be convicted on the basis of coerced testimony and even allow someone convicted under these rules to be put to death." They claim that this law will only be used to persecute terrorists, but when you get right down to it, what's stopping them from deciding that an American citizen who simply opposes the war is a terrorist? They wouldn't even have to tell you why. How does the signing of this law mesh with Bush's claim to be a "good Christian?" Why do American Christians stand by while the rights they claim are God given are taken away? Who, exactly, is the terrorist here? Because I tell you what, I'm terrified, and it's not of Muslims, Iraq, or Iran.

Um... what? No I don't. As you can see, the debate went back and forth for a while. No matter what I said, he pet insisting that I must believe that Jesus was divine. Why does he think that he can tell me what I believe better than I can? Is this a common Christian trait, or just his own personal delusion? I'm not trying to be disrespectfull here, I'm just confused as to why he thinks he can tell me I believe in Jesus when I very firmly do not.

    Do you celebrate Halloween? If not, why? Is it against your religion? In what way? What do you do instead? Do you (would you) let your kids trick-or-treat? If you do celebrate Halloween, how?

Divorce is at an all time high, do I have to remind you guys of Slutteny Spears' wedding in Las Vegas that was annuled the next day? People are getting married for all the wrong reasons, for money, for prestiege, for just being able to say they are married. Really, people, how could allowing gay people to get legally married really make things any worse? It's like "It's ok to get married to somene you've never met on tv for a million dollers, it's ok to marry someone you're not in love with for money, it's ok to force someone it to marriage by getting pregnant, and it's ok to get married six or seven times and divorce them each after less than a year, but God forbid someone get married to someone they're in love with that just so happens to be of the same gender, because that will distroy the sanctity of marriage!"
