“So if he likes bibical marriage then I guess he's all for polygamy and selling young girls to old men to be their wives?”

grandmablue on Apr 9, 2014 at 22:20:14

“Biblical marriage was as many wives and concubines as you could afford, plus sexual access to all slaves and maidservants.”

rhearob on Apr 9, 2014 at 13:48:23

“Don't forget forcing a girl to marry her rapist or the guy who killed her entire family. Then theres the tastiest kind of biblical marriage - a man and a pillar of salt.”

“So God with his omnipotent power can send tornados to show his displeasure in gay marriage and abortion, but is apparently helpless when it comes to making humans heterosexual or able to control their the timing of their own fertility.”

“This Irish American polytheist skips the holiday for the same reason!”

neamh on Mar 17, 2014 at 14:03:18

“I have a similar moral dilemma every March for the same reasons. However, as it truly is the Americanized Irish Heritage Celebration Day, I enjoy the day, but I NEVER call it "Saint Patrick's Day" - I only refer to it as Paddy's Day, Kiss me, I'm Irish Day or (my favorite) Save the Snakes Day :)

It's kind of like what happens in December, Yule is for 'religion', but my kids enjoy "American Secular Christmas" with Santa Claus & presents.
(and before the "you sure enjoy taking Christmas off even when you aren't Christian" people start in on me, I ALWAYS work Christmas Eve and let my co-workers enjoy their holiday - it's not my fault that businesses are closed on Christmas Day)”

“Yes, the pagan rites that Christianity heavily borrowed from were "well established" religions. Most people of the world were pagans until Christianity came about and decided to go about converting the world to its exclusivist creed”

“I'm a pagan but I go by the term "polytheist". I have no interest in magic nor do I "over ride the free will of other human beings". You don't like orgiastic rituals- I beg to differ. They are expressions of the spirit, I consider church rituals of speaking in tongues and such to be very orgiastic in nature. If you don't like human sacrifice then you must find Christianity abhorrent. It's whole premise is built on the sacrifice of a human.”

“Which Gods?”

MargotFernandez on Feb 9, 2014 at 13:13:54

“Some theology within the Church holds that view, but not all. Those who do believe that God sacrificed Jesus also teach that he was the "last and perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world," meaning that no more sacrifices will ever be required and that Christianity represents the salvation of everyone who ever lived or will ever live, whether they are Christians or not. That is pretty radical.

But among others, Episcopal theologian Bishop John Shelby Spong disagrees and he has written about it in several books. You might take a look at his works because a comment isn't a good place to deal with this topic, and I am not a theologian. I just write a column called the Tucson Liberal Christian Examiner.”

“Has nothing to do with fares, the service taxis provide is the worst. I would pay MORE to use uber or Lyft than to catch a taxi. You never know when or if a cab will show up, they always say cash only, and they won't take you to the neighborhoods they don't like. Cabs suck soooo bad”

“It's not just cheap. I use Uber because the car actually come and go to my neighborhood. It simply works better I would still take Lyft or Uber if it cost the same as a cab. In SF anyway poeople tried to help cab companies innovate and they resisted. Things like taking credit cards, allowing passangers to track the car so you know how long you have to wait, these are the things that make a big difference. Price matters less than being dependable.”

“How about getting ANY ride? At least in San Francisco you have no idea if or when a cab will show. Uber never takes more then 5 minutes, you can see the car in it's progress toward you. When you call for a cab and then call in to check if the cab is near or actually coming you never, ever get an estimate in minutes. This sucks for disabled people who need to go to the doctors and suck for the environment when people who would rather take a cab are forced to drive because cabs are undependable. I don't use rideshare services because they are cheap. I use them because they work.”

“Nope. San Francisco has absolutely crappy cab service too. How many times did I call a cab and not know if they would come at all? How many times did I get attitude or left at the curb after giving the cab driver my address? Lyft and Uber are a godsend to San Francisco, I use them for me and for my kids when they need a ride from across town.”

I reserve my blame on the MDs and RN until they are allowed to tell their side of the story. Thus far the McGrath family has blocked them from doing that by refusing to sign releases of information.”
