Which modern country is run by the bible?
No modern country is fully run by the bible, lucky for me i never said anything of the kind. I said a 2000 year old book is a bad guide for leading a country wich was in reference to several things today wich we find in goverment that are there for the religious folk, like banning gay marriage etc.
And if you think you can become president of the USA in this day whilst offending the church in any way then your just plain crazy. The christian voting block is simply so big that one can't go around it and thus it will continue to effect the national agenda of the USA and force parts of a lifestyle THOSE people choose on people that want nothing to do with it.
The bible says you should NEVER KILL.
The bible clearly at times states it's oke to kill people. Whilst you are right it also claims that you shouldn't kill people. Perhaps the writers didn't get their story straight or maybe the bible doesn't count homosexuals as human beings, but fact is it does state at times it's A-oke to kill a person (gays/adulterers).
The bible also mostly speaks about helping the poor but recently the church in New York threatend to stop providing their social services (like shelters and food for free kitchens) if they pass gay marriage. All mass religion is political, when you don't see that your deluding yourself just as much as telling yourself there is a magic man that will take you away from this ooh soo horrid planet.
The only reason that christianity seems to be forced on to people in the US, noting that it isn't at all, is because the majority of people in the US are christian. It's the government's role to form a legal system that best represents the beliefs of it's citizens.
So you agree that a goverment should let itself be led by nonsense. You actually believe that if there is no shred of evidence for something, that it doesn't matter and that the real world (aka goverments) should still cater to it's whims? There is no proof of a god, and if you want to believe in a god that is fine, but the whole problem is that it doesn't stay there.
If religion was confined to home and church then there would be no issue, you could go about your day. The problem is that all mass religion is political and thus it seeks to shape the world around it. It sends out a message of "Wether you believe in our way or not doesn't matter, your gonna live it anyway".
says the person who says the bible tells people to kill people.
You should read the bible if you miss obvious things like it telling you it's fine to kill people, just cause another line says don't do it doesn't negate the first line. You can also sell your daughter into slavery and other cool things like that but once again for the church to survive it had to adapt to a bit of a more modern approach but it still kept parts like it's anti-gay agenda.
and the Pope tells people not to have sex outside of marriage or without the intent to have a child. Apparently they aren't hanging on his every word if Aids is spreading.
People still have urges you know. As much as you might believe in a god it doesn't stop teenagers from feeling the urge to go and have sex. It's a natural feeling far more powerfull then any indoctrination, and god knows the church has tried. However if you mix that urge to have sex with a figure of great importance saying "don't use a condom they don't work" it helps in the spread of aids cause that might just be a lesson the kids DO hang on to.
who? who follows it against their will? I'm guessing they are idiots as nobody is forcing it on anyone.
Nobody is forcing homosexuals to remain unmarried? I would disagree. Several states of the USA force homosexuals to remain unmarried.
Once again religion is fine if it's YOUR belief but mass religion forms powerfull voting blocks that simply cannot be ignored and thus spread YOUR chosen lifestyle to the lives of others. And i don't want to see my or anyone else's life be effected by something wich is based on nothing else but the idiotic reasoning of "Prove that im wrong".
That's why i don't mind personal religions or just a general vague spiritual belief. While i still think it's self deception atleast it's a kind of self deception that doesn't need to invade other people's personal lives.
