I know why the Left has such intolerance for Christian beliefs. Total insecurity!

When people on the Left see the moral values lifted up in our Christian faith, it makes them feel insecure about themselves. They hate the feeling that maybe they are not the compassionate tolerant people they claim to be. Those pesky Christian values make them feel guilty during those one night hook ups, or abandonment of their children, or abortion, etc.

These insecure feelings are the reasons they spend so much time trying to convince themselves and others that those Bible believing Christians are bad people.

They have a hard time finding fault with true Christians today, so they must always go back centuries to talk about the Crusades, or Salem Witch hunts, etc. and use these events by false Christians to paint Christianity as evil. They can never show us evils being committed by true Christians here in America today. God says you will know a Christian by their love! 

God tells us in the Bible how the world will ridicule Christians for his sake. It is so obvious the truth of those words.
Ask yourself why any so called compassionate tolerant person would demonize Pro life people. You would think that the Left would at least respect our compassion for the unborn lives being snuffed out by the millions.
You would think they would respect all the wonderful things Christian Churches are doing for the poor, for pregnant mothers, for hurting people in hospitals, etc.

But no, the Left rants and screams how those evil Bible believing fundamentalist Christians hate women and want them to die in childbirth. The deception from the Left is absolutely nauseating. No one is disputing life of mother abortions, yet this is how the intolerant Left paints Christians.

A secure person has no problem admitting his faults because he is secure with who he is, understanding he is not perfect, but also understanding he can improve himself.

Science has proven that a human life begins at conception, and to a secure person with true compassion and tolerance, can admit the inhumanity towards the unborn. He can become Pro Life.
An intelligent secure person would not try to demonize Christians and pro life people, but would look at the facts and hopefully GROW!

Right buddy. It has nothing to do with the fact that you persecuted us for centuries, burned our daughters because you thought they were witches who worked for Satan, and sent our sons to die in wars fought over petty arguments about who has the best invisible friend.

You are a dangerously insane little liar who -- like most on the right -- thinks it is a form of argument to turn facts upside down. You accuse "the left" of being intolerant, yet it is you who autobans anybody from your debates who disagrees with your zealotry, and it is you who gleefully types "IGNORED" in caps lock everytime you are presented with an argument you don't like.

You are a stupid, bigoted, horrible little hypocrite who still lives in the dark ages and wants to force everybody else to live there too.

Honestly, you are a fucking relic.

Fromwithin hasn't been alive for centuries, and neither have you, so YOU have never been persecuted and he has never done any persecuting. If this were your true position, Islam would infurriate you. You are not infurriated, so your claim is easily proven to be false hyperbole for political expediency, nothing more. Muslim countries are slaughtering Atheists and gays in real time. You care more about your next meal than that.

The real answer is you see Christianity as a barrier for your Communist dystopia.

You are very clearly distorting the meaning of the language you are reading. In the context it was used, "you" obviously referred to the group of which FromWithin is a part (i.e. Christians), not him personally.

Stop distorting what other people write Bronto. It is irritating and makes people want to slap you.

Would you agree that this assumes those people share your Christian values on some level, even if they do not practice them? That seems necessary to them feeling guilty.

If that is the case, why do you suppose that those people share those values? It is not clear to me why they would, and absent a reason to believe that they do I don't think the rest of your argument can really follow.

First of all, thank you for doing what all people should be doing on debate sites... addressing the topic and intelligently responding. Refreshing when dealing with so many childish vulgar bigots.

The Bible actually speaks to your questions concerning non Christians and how they know deep down that there is a God, even while denying it.

https://www.crossway.org/articles/why-theres-no-such-thing-as-an-atheist/

God says he has given all people a conscience to discern right from wrong. Those who ignore this little voice inside them still feel the guilt or shame when doing things they know deep down to be wrong.

They will never admit it, but it is there just the same. This is why there are so many anti Christian bigots who spend their lives desperately trying to catch Christians in sin, and by doing so, excusing their own short comings. They love making the statement, "we all make mistakes" and therefore no one is better than another.

It is true that there is no perfect person... we have all sinned, but this does not mean Christians wallow in sin like many non believers. Christians do strive to live sin free lives, and in doing so make non believers feel guilty about their lifestyles.

Yes, well, I'd rather understand your perspective than just react without getting it. I think you might make it a bit difficult at times, but I can appreciate why.

God says he has given all people a conscience to discern right from wrong. Those who ignore this little voice inside them still feel the guilt or shame when doing things they know deep down to be wrong.

Research in moral psychology supports the belief that we actually have different moral intuitions. For instance, there are differences in moral intuition (that gut feeling) between conservatives and progressives [1]. To me, this suggests that people have not been given the same moral conscience by God. How would you understand it?

It is true that there is no perfect person... we have all sinned, but this does not mean Christians wallow in sin like many non believers. Christians do strive to live sin free lives, and in doing so make non believers feel guilty about their lifestyles.

I'm also genuinely curious how you make sense of differing moral beliefs between different sects of Christianity. Even if I consider that the leadership of some of these sects is simply wrong, even deliberately so, members of the congregation seem really to believe in the morals of their respective church because it speaks to their moral intuitions.

OK. Let's set the record straight. Christians were not responsible for the Salem witch hunts. Much study was conducted on the available facts. The whole thing was most likely the result of petty revenge and mass hysteria. I believe the History Channel did a credible job of reconstructing events. I repeat. Christians had nothing to do with it.

Thank you for clarifying that to the bigots who spend their lives trying to demonize Christians.

It is quite amusing to me how you expect anyone to post on your debates if you simply ban everyone who disagrees with you. Tell me why you post on createdebate.com if you're here to rant. Who's the insecure one now, chap?

Ok, now we will hear about those evil Bible believing fundamentalist hatemongering judgmental homophobic Zealots.

Of course they will have no examples to prove this, but the Left does not deal in reality. They deal in total insecurity and total disdain for those who make them feel bad about themselves..

I was not trying to prove anything when I made the statement of God knowing how man would treat Christians.

There are literally hundreds of of verses clearly describing non Christians and the world today. This would be impossible if the Bible were written by men thousands of years ago. The many prophesies that have come true along with the wisdom of the ages, all goes to show that the Bible was inspired by God.

It usually takes you about one response to show your vulgar degrading hate for Christians and why I will once again add you to my ban list.
