Quote from: OrangeDon on April 08, 2021, 09:06:14 AMWow. I don't even know where to start with a statement/post like this one..."Evangelicals are anti-LGBTQ" -- please stop trying to sell that, because nobody's buying that. I'm a 57yo man. It wasn't even LEGAL for me to marry the adult man whom I deeply love until I was 50! Why? CHRISTIANITY and its centuries-long hatred for gays. Period. And there are still more than enough churches in the US alone who still espouse their hate, who still try to smack down marriage equality, who still ban gay weddings, who still denigrate and ostracize gays... Give me a break. I can't even imagine how you can say that without your mouth catching on fire..."Evangelicals are anti-science" - really? Ever heard of the debacle called Creationism? A "discipline" (if you can call it that) that was created with the SOLE INTENT to try and prostitute science to prove the Bible is valid. In all its time, Creationism has given mankind NOTHING - no new science, no new discoveries, no new technology, no new advancements, NOTHING. After centuries of exiling or killing any scientist (and their families) that made observations about the natural world which happened to contradict the Bible, you try to say you're not anti-science? Parents all across this country keep their kids out of regular schools just to keep them from learning real science!"Evangelicals are notoriously pro-life but have little regard for life after birth." 1. Over 75% of the abortions in the US are obtained by Christians & Catholic women. But Christians don't care about the "mess" in their own house, this is about pointing the finger of blame outward and crusading against other people. 2. You scream about saving embryos because you claim they have a soul. So, what about the millions upon millions of embryos that are cryogenically frozen right now for later use? Not a peep from you there - all those "frozen souls" tucked away, frozen, many for years upon years. WHY? Because Christians utilize frozen embryos, too. So, they have to protect their double standard! 3. By the way, you all demand that these unwanted pregnancies go to term, yet once that happens, none of you are to be found anywhere... Tens of thousand of children all over the US without families, and where are all of you? <crickets> Exactly what we expect. Nothing from you there. All hat and no cattle.Honestly, this is one of the most disingenuous, vacant posts I've read in a long time. You pretend that there is no past; you pretend what's happening now isn't happening. It's offensive.

It's a pic of the wax figure of Orange Don at Disney World. And it's hilarious.I am not aligned with the idiots who worship Orange Don, so, actually, that means I do have values."I suspect all you have to say would be untruthful."Well, you suspect wrong. You don't know me, and I only started posting here today."As for your post, do you think you are posting on a christian site????"No, this is called ATHEIST FORUMS. And I'm posting in an area called CHRISTIANITY with one byline being - discuss your issues with the Bible.Hope that helps clarify! Have a nice day.

Glad now that's not the case.I love the Orange Don handle because I abhor Trump. He looks Orange from his fake tan, and I'm told he HATES being called Don. :)
