    Would you care to explain this comment or should I simply understand it as yet more Christian intolerance?

    Hmm..Must be true then huh?

    Odd how you seem to know more about "their" beliefs than "they" do.
    More Christian arrogance/intolerance.

    I must have missed that CNN special.
    Just exactly when did god institute a theocracy in the USA?
    Which god was this?

    Well I guess since no one wants to answer these --- let a Baptist handle it:


    Yes ... God instituted the Death Penalty in Genesis 9, and gave the responsibility of carrying it out to us --- (Genesis 9:6).

    Yes ... read the words of our National Anthem.

    Yes ... read the words to The Ballad of the Green Berets by Staff Sgt. Barry Sadler.

    Yes

    Yes

    YOU explain it ... YOU'RE the one that brought it up.

    And, yes, please do understand it as yet more Christian intolerance.

    Must be.

    I know enough to know they'll be grateful later --- I know I was.

    If you get your theology from CNN ... no wonder you have questions.

    Please, let's remember not to judge an entire religion based upon the actions of one person.

    I see no other choice.
    :)

    Trust me Feathers, my judgements take the whole of the ideology into consideration.
    This is just typical of the majority of religious Christians

    Apply the same standard to the understanding of in Jesus' time reproduction. The idea of thousands of little babies contained in men's sperm immediatly springs to mind.

    Really?
    AV1611 said:

    Based upon your provided "answers", I'm pretty sure I wouldn't hand pointy-tipped scissors to a Baptist without fear of him prospectively injuring himself...

    Question put:
    if you are pro-life, do you believe the death penalty should be legal?

    AV1611 reply:
    And how is that "responsibility" going for you (ya'll?)?
    Have you maintained proper obedience and righteousness in deference to the Lord's Commandments?

    Howzabout...

    Exodus 21:17; Exodus 22:19; Exodus 31:14-15; Leviticus 20:10-13 (have you righteously executed your share of homos today?); Leviticus 20:27 (gotta kill off those palmists and astrologers, ya know); Leviticus 24:16 (I blaspheme daily, and I have yet to be communally stoned to death - why won't Christians fulfill their responsibilities to God?); Deuteronomy 13:5 (justifiably knocked off your accountable share of false prophets lately?); Deuteronomy 17:2-5 (keeping up with your Commanded responsibility of death by stoning of pagans, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.?)...

    Question put:
    if you are pro-life, do you believe that a war can ever be justified?

    AV1611's (incredulous) reply:
    Oh my.

    Anthemic dogma!

    How ironic that Francis Scott Key actually opposed our involvement in the 1812 war...

    Now, what did Jesus say...?

    Luke 6:27-31
    "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you."

    Jesus.

    Crazy, bleeding-heart liberal.

    Question put:
    if you are pro-life, do you believe any killing be justifed, for any reason?

    AV1611's insightful "answer":
    Rationale/Dogma by ballad! Who can debate that?

    Oh...

    "Ballad Of the Green Berets"

    "Fighting soldiers from the sky
    Fearless men who jump and die
    Men who mean just what they say
    The brave men of the Green Beret


    Chorus:
    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America’s best
    One hundred men will test today
    But only three win the Green Beret


    Trained to live off natures land
    Trained in combat, hand-to-hand
    Men who fight by night and day
    Courage peak from the Green Berets

    (Chorus) Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America's best
    One hundred men will test today
    But only three win the Green Beret


    Back at home a young wife waits
    Her Green Beret has met his fate
    He has died for those oppressed
    Leaving her his last request
    “Put silver wings on my son’s chest
    Make him one of America’s best
    He’ll be a man they'll test one day
    Have him win the Green Beret”


    (Chorus repeats)

    Hmmm. Justification in killing for any reason is expressed where within these lyrics?


    Maybe some Biblical inspiration is in order...

    Luke 6:46-49
    "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
