I have no problem talking to you about politics or pretty much anything, but when you use the forum to sell your religion it annoys me.

But according to you, a political view is religious in nature. You "sell your religion" every day.

Side: No.

Two extremes exist when reading the Bible, and both break my heart. The absolute worst is when someone who has yet to be Christian as a child, or otherwise, has a negative experience with reading the Bible, in connection with religious abuse. The second is people who are already Christians being denied their Bible in appropriate settings. I had my Gideon Bible taken away from me in a mental healthcare setting, and that's almost as bad. Positives do exist, like for me currently. I am going through a depression part of bipolar disorder, and reading my Bible, is such a healing comfort to me. I don't like when Westboro, alleges, that God hates gays, by twisting the Bible. God does not hate any sinner, but wants to love them to repentance in Jesus Christ. God may disagree with homosexual and other sins, but He assumed Human flesh, and paid it all on the cross. Jesus is the God, who paid for all sin on the cross and rose from the dead, and yes, I'm a sinner.

Side: Yes.
