    There is one Truth that is right. If you are afraid to decide that's up to you. I've examined the evidence and have decided. I'm not going to play "loosy goosey" as not to offend anyone. Most all religions are very similar in what they accomplish. I find the belief in Jesus Christ and His provision is far far different than any of them. As jesus claimed there would be weeds that grow up with the wheat. It is not til the end that the Truth will be separated from the weeds. If you aren't convicted there is nothing more for me to say. I do not need to convince others of anything. I just share what I know.

    Gods and religions were the precursor to government and political parties.
    Democracy only allows the majority to impose their beliefs/world views upon the minority, and the party/politicians that give their supporters/followers/contributors the most while still keeping them wanting generally wins elections. Hillary knows that, resulting in her book titled "What Happened".

    You "share" what you decided is your truth only. And insist that it must be a truth for al others. Your tunnel vision on your "beliefs" prevents you from even considering that there are other beliefs out there that are more truthful and intelligent than those you espouse. Yet you try, while denying the fact of what you have written, to convince others that you and only you know the truth. You repeat claims of what others have said, with no proof of their saying it, as fact.

    The only evidence that you have "examined" is that which you think supports you and your bigotry on the subject. You, to use your reference, are one of the weeds.

    Arjay..... where do you get that I insist that you or anyone else believe what I believe? I am not responsible to share your truth or anyone else's. There is a great many that do share my truth. There are also a great many that don't quite understand my truth and that is why I share. I realize of course there are many that deny my truth....even despise my truth, but I don't go around embracing everyone elses truth just to make you happy. Many are indifferent and some even are too timid to even embrace or express their truth. You can't seem to grasp there are a great great many that embrace my Truth and I am accountable to them if I am ever in error. You seem to think you are an island to yourself and you don't even declare what you say is truth. So you say I am a bigot because I don't cowtow to your undeclared truth. How cowardly and liberal.

    You claim that you "share" what you call your truth and don't care if others share it, then go on to claim that by sharing it you spread your "truth" even while admitting that many don't share it with you. Seems you are confused and employing doublespeak.

    You declare that I have not shared my truth, yet you have never asked what it is or why I have it. Perfect example of blindness as to the beliefs of others and you insisting that yours is the only truth. That is bigoted, as I stated.

    It is you who seem to refuse to admit that most do not share what you claim as the truth and, without knowledge, make claims of what I believe. Tunnel vision at its best and more bigotry on y our part.

    For the record, I don't believe as you and don't really care what you believe as it not relevant to me or what is in truth the vast majority of people. Your claims are meaningless and for the most part fictitious, based solely on what you decide to believe. And refuse to allow others their own decisions. This borders on rank superstition and an inability to leave others to their beliefs.

    One could accuse you of attempted bullying, if you weren't so pathetic in your statements with all of their contradictions.

    What....do you have corncobs between your ears???? It seems so. I don't care about your truth. I share my truth and you don't. So that is bullying?? You poor little snowflake. You see bigots on every corner. Isn't there a "safe place" you could hide?? You say my claims are meaningless but it appears they hold a great deal of importance to you or you wouldn't spend so much time trying to discredit them.

    Are you really so dense that you don't see the hypocrisy of your statement? Don't see how you attempting to force your beliefs on others is bullying?

    I realize that you live in your own little world of fantasy, but you should really visit reality once in a while.

    BTW, next time you resort to your attempted insults, pitiful as they and you are, you will be reported.

    Density is in your own limited mind. I'll buy you three Corona's if you can show and demonstrate in any way where I have forced my beliefs on anyone. You have taken the "mealy mouth" path of "fake news" where you just try and fear monger and silence anyone that has opposing views to your "godless" views.
    Of course you will report....that is the way of a snowflake. Had I been a "snowflake" I would have tattled for you calling me a bigot.

    I'm a little lost. Are you a Christian? If you are, why would you want to rewrite the Bible to make it full of hate?

    The Bible is a book of directions some followed some not. The basics of the Bible was to clean up mans woes. The changes I would make stick to that premise.

    Still unable to defend your actions and bigotry while displaying you lack of tolerance to any thought but your own.

    You resort to trying to categorize all who dare to disagree with you into what you consider derogatory behaviors. Thus displaying your lack of anything of actual importance, as expected. You continue to mistake your opinions for facts while the only actual fact concerning you is just how useless you truly are.

    Why not? Most religions were created as a result of mans fear of nature, and nature is unbiased.
