I totally understand and agree with what you are saying.....Believe me, if it weren't for my family in this state, I would have never moved back after being gone for so many years....

Oh....And, I hope you have found yourself settled and you are doing well since the evacuation.

Thanks!! Settled somewhat now.

Louisiana's a great place, but nobody who works for aliving can afford to live there Hopefully it'll improve with Jindal coming in and a lot of the assclowns in the Lege going out. Plus Baton Rouge finally has some leadership. If it becomes the state's economic center in the next decade, NOLA won't be able to drag the state down as much as it used to.

Maybe. I'm just afraid this is going to end up the same way the illegal alien thread will end up. I'm pretty sure I'm heading down an ugly road with Atlanta Dan in that one. But I will continue there, because we are dealing with the known and the knowable, whereas this is pretty much 100% opinion and faith. But I appreciate your civility.

Right...the problem comes about when others feel it is their mission to MAKE you believe (aka Muslim extremists, born again Christians, etc.)

Yup. And I'll admit, I was scared away by the statement about Preach KNOWING that salvation lies only through Jesus. I wonder how many people have been "damned" over the last 10,000 years for disagreeing with absolute absolutes like that. They burned women at the stake just a couple hundred years ago in this very Country for less.

So no, those two are bad examples in this argument.
Phelps was and has always been a hate monger of the worst sort. His Westboro Baptist Church is in Topeka, Kansas and frankly I can tell you for a fact that no one in Kansas claims him and his gene pool deficient bunch of dysfunctional family members who make up roughly 80% of his church. Michelle Malkin was saying last night that Fred Phelps is a known Al Gore supporter and a staunch Liberal Democrat. I presume that the SBC (Sothern Baptist Convention) has pretty much disavowed this kook. The sadfdest part is that Fred Phelps Church protests at the funerals of our fallen soldiers which has led to the creation of the Patriot Guard which is there to protect the family members of our fallen heroes from the Phelps protestors.

Again, there is a difference between muslims and Christians here.

1. Historically, Muslims have been able to "force" conversion, and those forced conversions are not disavowed by the majority of the Muslim faith.

2. Born again Christians believe that faith is shown from within, thus, no one can "force" faith, or make a person believe. However, we can share and explain what we believe. If you are open to it, then we continue to share. If not, then we pray.

I know there are those crackpots and idiots that go out onto a street corner with a bullhorn, or trap you at work and preach at you for an hour. I do not condone such practices nor do most of the Christians that I know.

As far as my belief that Jesus is the "only way" to heaven, yes. that is my belief. I hold that belief for a number of reasons, including the uniqueness of many aspects of Christianity in relation to any and all other beliefs. However, I also understand that there are those who believe their way is the best, and those who believe no way is the best. I think they are wrong, they think I am wrong, and that is ok. Tolerance is not changing what one believes, but treating someone else with different beliefs with the same respect you treat those who believe like you.

However, what I find very insulting, is when I am talking to a Muslim, Jehovah Witness, or Mormon, and they DONT tell me about their faith. Don't ask me to join them. Why? Because if they REALLY believe that their way is the only way, and they DONT tell you about it... what does that say about how they feel about you?

That is why, Revs and Hammer, I tell you that I believe Jesus is the only way to heaven. Not because I look down on you, but because I want to spend eternity with you. It is a matter of caring about someone, not a matter of disrespecting someone else.
