    All DECENT people are appalled at the terrible intolerance, hatred, bigotry, homophobia and persecution posted by Christians towards others!

    No other religion is so hateful towards others!

    So try and find a Christian post about a loving god on here! Almost certainly impossible!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try another - try and find a Christian post that is not intolerant, hateful, bigoted, homophobic or persecuting! Again, probably impossible!

    Because you haven't shown that all religions are equally valid, Einstein. Think again, if you are able.

    Every year millions experience God for themselves. You should, too. It's the logical thing to do. Don't bother moving the goalposts. It's more evidence than you have to shore up your pretense that there is no God.

    Only the Catholic Church has the fullness of truth and a person can know this with certainty by reciting the rosary every day with care.

    There are some religions that aren't inherently arrogant and teach acceptance. However, they're small minority religions.

    No. People who understand the concept know that's not a valid characterization of it.

    Why can't we accept that other religions exist?? Did you think before posting that?? Of course we know they exist. But validity is a personal opinion. You're entitled to yours.

    This is a very arrogant question.  The validity of any assertion depends upon the reasons one has for asserting  it.  It is simply false that people have the same reasons for following one religion as they do for following another.  By assuming that they do, all you are doing is exposing your own ignorance.

    You asserted that other religions have the same validity. You did not give reasons for saying so but presented it as a truth we should accept on your authority. That's arrogant. The fact that some of us (I, for instance) have studied world religions for decades and have arrived at the opposite conclusion makes your statement even more arrogant.

    Eh...I think religions themselves have issues, but most of the people who practice those religions (religion and faith being different things) are understanding. There are exceptions, but most people are pretty practical.

    Arrogant and deceptive, religion is nefarious in it's actions and intent.

    It doesn't mean well for you, and it doesn't do well for you.  Only the crooked clergy benefit from religious hoaxes.

    One must know the definition of religion. Then its time to run.The Word of God forbids any and every religion including satans false and apostate christian religion. Revelation teaches that religion is that deed of the nicolaitins which thing God hates which thing is to concur and control their laity's.That so they can accomplish the goals of those at the top. Now take that church in Rome. Their goal is to rule the free world setting up an Theocracy.Revelation ch 13 concerning that first beast which is a revived Roman empire in its seventh form of rule church over state.Charlemagne was that seventh head and called the holy Roman emperor.A time of the dark ages as study the dictates of that church in Rome.Revelation ch 13 gives mankind's final geopolitical landscape.That seventh head was wounded unto death in the reformation and came back to life in our day via the ecumenical movement. America is that second beast in ch 13. Revelation ch 17 teaches of the government of that another Theocracy. A time of thick black darkness such as never was before nor ever will be again.Notice the woman riding that beast in control.Yes everyone's worst nightmare.So realize religions are out for themselves and dupe people into following them.They create false doctrines and their own commandments.People are controlled by many means like fear. Also there is a lot of money involved.Rome had Novenas and indulgences where one could by their loved one into heaven or buy out their sins. Yes none of that is in The Bible.So beware the religionists and run. JESUS BLESS YOU
