So is homosexuality. What's your point?

My point is most people outgrow their imaginary friends. Since you have already shown that you don't believe in reason, there's no use trying to educate you. Make no mistake, you are in dire need of educating. I just don't think you're worth the time. Being called "faith" should garner stupidity and malice no more respect than similar stupidity and malice is shown in any other context. Therefore you receive none from me.

Mahavira, the Jain patriarch, surpassed the morality of the Bible with a single sentence: "Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being." Imagine how different our world might be if the Bible contained this as its central precept. Christians have abused, oppressed, enslaved, insulted, tormented, tortured, and killed people in the name of God for centuries, on the basis of a theologically defensible reading of the Bible.

You Christians keep saying that word... I don't think you know what it means.

NBA player Jason Collins received plenty of support from the professional sports community after coming out as gay in a Sports Illustrated cover story this week.

For many athletes, that support came via Twitter. Former Green Bay Packers safety LeRoy Butler was one of those athletes, tweeting a message of congratulations to Collins.

It was a gesture of goodwill that led to some trouble. We'll let Butler explain ...


Butler elaborated on the situation in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday.

"This is what bothers me the most," Butler said. "They said, 'If you ask for forgiveness and remove the tweet and you say something to the effect that you don't congratulate (Collins) then we'll let you do the engagement and get the speaker's fee', and I said 'I'm not doing that.'


"Every gay and lesbian person will say 'You know, LeRoy doesn't speak up for the weak or the silenced. He doesn't stand for anything as a man and he did it for money.' Why would you ask me to reduce my integrity like that?"

Butler later tweeted he received an apology from the church, but said it was "mainly thanking me for not releasing the church name."

That sounds about right.

FYI the fee was 8500$,then I was told if i removed the tweet, and apologize and ask god forgiveness, I can have the event, I said no,

The idea that any one of our religions represents the infallible word of the One True God requires an encyclopedic ignorance of history, mythology, and art even to be entertained.

no society in human history ever suffered because its people became too desirous of evidence in support of their core beliefs
