    No, because we mostly study the New Testament. When it says be "Doers of the Word rather then Hearers only" as it says in James, we do the word. "Love your neighbor as yourself". "Do unto others as you would like other to do to you"

    Naturally. I have never said otherwise, and any statement that I have is a lie.
    According to your religion. Mine says he came over 2000 years ago.

    It will never happen unless Jesus shows up and walks up to Ian. Even then I doubt he would believe.

    Oh I doubt if the Supreme Court will rule in favor of discrimination. You are free to exercise your religion as long as it does not discriminate against people who do not share your believes in the public arena

    Do you not, then, consider the Tanakh (the "Old Testament") to be among "the Holy Books"?

    "The Word" is throughout the Tanakh, is it not?

    This principle exists in the Tanakh ... right there in Devarim (Deuteronomy).

    Your religion, however, tells mine that we neither know nor understand our books as well as you do.

    its pretty hard to discriminate towards a choice someone makes. That is the weakness in this whole social experiment.
