Catholicism falls under theism which is an umbrella term for a belief in god or gods.. you don't get to identify as catholic and ignore the defining characteristic. You're basically arguing you can claim you're gay and not attracted to the same sex or be vegan and consume animal products.

My dad is a gay vegan so I am too even though guys smell and I'm eating a burger as we speak.

I think that's basically what Fluff is arguing for.

Veganism is probably a bad example because the goal is to reduce suffering as much as possible and many vegans, knowingly or not, participate in some sort of non-vegan behavior simply because of the way society functions. I think my point still stands.

If he'd stop beating around the bush and explain himself, this would be a lot easier.

Protesters Delay Release Of Pakistani Woman Acquitted For Blasphemy

Quote:
A Christian woman who was acquitted by Pakistan's Supreme Court after spending eight years on death row for insulting Islam is still being held in an undisclosed location. Her release was delayed after negotiations failed between the government and an extremist religious group that is demanding she be killed.

Ugh. Could say something obvious here, but I think I just want to groan and feel the clammy hand of despair in silence.

God is all powerful but he also needs our help murdering people who hurt his feelings.

One of the biggest holes in how religious sycophants handle their faith. If God is so great, why doesn't he handle all of this himself in a jiffy? Smite this, smite that. There, fixed it.

Obviously because we are an experiment that he doesnt interfere with even though prayer works.

Prayer is idiotic. If god is omniscient and has a perfect plan then why the **** would he change it because you're too sad? If his plan is so epic then I'd say he should be slapped in the face for compromising it.
