“The owners certainly have a right to their views (and to express them). I just wish Bible-thumpers would stop pretending they follow their holy book's instructions when all they really do is treat it like a buffet, taking what they want, ignoring the rest.
"The Bible condemns homosexuality."
"Sounds good to me!"
"It also condemns public prayer and material wealth."
"Sorry, your message is breaking up."”

“You just reminded me yet again why I fanned you and am following you. :-D”

“And the people they attack have the right to repel them.”
“Seriously, novabird, how about you answer once and for all why this constitutes a miracle. How does god get credit for doctors saving ONE woman while not getting any blame for the TWELVE victims who died? This has been asked of you repeatedly by myself and others, and the only replies come in the form of "Nope, you're wrong, you're mean, linear, linear, linear, just shut up, go away, etc."
Answer the charge or be gone. You're wasting everyone's time otherwise.”
“Well, medical science does do the job that prayer can't.”

“Often yes, but there have been numerous cases of people who were beyond the help of medical science, given a few months to live, and they went home and proceeded to live for years. Science is an adequate instrument in many respects but it is oh so limited at explaining much of human experience.”
“Actually it's very DIScomforting to us to see people using this tragedy to push their religious agenda in the desperate hope that no one will ask the obvious question--if God can save one woman, why can't he save ALL the victims? You're not offended because we're "attacking" the mother who made the crass comment--you're offended because we're holding a spotlight on your god's incompetence. You figure if you scream loud enough you'll divert attention from his gross negligence on to the "meanness" of folks like me.
"that gives you comfort"
We're not the ones wrapping ourselves in the blanket of desperation and childish fantasy.
"the logical thing"
The logical thing would be to stop spinning this tragedy into a "win" for your Great Pumpkin in the sky and show some respect for those who apparently weren't worthy of his "miraculous" intervention.”

“Your ridiculous, one sides and hyperbolic straw man arguments do not define anything zmberg.”
“Is this from the same Bible where Jesus promised he would be returning soon, before the current generation passed?
Oops--somebody get the damn Whiteout!
I kid, of course. Everybody knows Xianity is a buffet--pick what you like, ignore the rest.”

“You mean in Matt 16, where Christ promises that some will see the Kingdom of God before they taste daeth, and then, in Matt 17, the heavens open up, and God speaks to Peter, James and John, and they behold the Kingdom there and then?”
“So is your dismissal of the deaths of twelve innocent people as you climb over their bodies to shine a spotlight on one woman in your rush to claim a "win" for god.”

“You have continually repeated the same outrageous lie in this discussion. That is not only uncool and nasty, it is incredibly intellectually dishonest. Please feel free to repeat that lie again though, although you should know that repeating it to ad infinitum will not make it true.”
