Living a moral life and not exposing children to deviant lifestyle choices seems pretty important to actual Christians. I can understand how someone like you might not get this.
Didn't the founding fathers you tout so much want there to be a separation between church and state(and many of them detested the idea of a multi-party political system, but that's an argument for a different day)? Religion has no place in politics and should not be and cannot be a valid reason for a change in any policy of any kind.
I hate to upset you, well that's not exactly true, but most americans are christians.
You're correct. Most Americans are indeed Christians, but, being a Christian doesn't necessarily mean that you agree with all of the ideas put forward by the sect of Christianity that you belong to.
No I'm saying you're taking it out of context. The 'judge not lest ye be judged' bit is as much a warning to the people being judged as to those doing the judging. When we die we'll all stand before God and be judged. When we see someone doing something harmful, be it to themselves or others, we're compelled to help them find the truth path to Christ. What we're not commanded to do is turn our heads and pretend what the sinner is doing is ok.
Having never met God personally, how can you be sure that the men
who wrote the book, supposedly in his name, were correctly interpreting his will?
