    You don't need to look to hard for mistakes.
    There are so many things wrong with this post.

    First, if you make a "mistake" twice, it's not a mistake; it's a decision. Second, "not perfect, just forgiven" is one of those absurd platitudes that Christians use, that, I truly believe, they are absolutely cluelss about how they sound to people who aren't Christians.

    See, Christians say, "Not perfect, just forgiven," and the rest of us hear, "I can do whatever I want, bitch! Cuz all I gotta do is ask God for forgiveness, and it's all good," Now, I expect that you're going to go into this huge diatribe about how that wasn't what "you meant". It doesn't matter. This isn't about what you intend to impart; it's about the perception that you present. Christians constantly scoff at the "misrepresentations" of Christianity "created" by non-Christians. However, what they don't seem to realise is that they create those perceptions of Christians, themselves, with comments, like this.

    There is a huge difference: The t-shirt company didn't want to custom make a t-shirt with a pro-gay slogan on it. They didn't want to use their skills to make a pro-gay product. In the other cases, the Christian bakers were making identical cakes with no pro-gay slogans on them. They were just cakes, but they refused to sell them to gay couples exclusively. It isn't the sellers any damn business what the customers do with the cakes after they sell them. The customers can eat them, throw them at people, or take a crap on them.

    No one in politics or elsewhere is a bigger hypocrite than you. As a fascist, you blame non-Christians for everything wrong with the community, yet you are the biggest liar on this forum. Lying is against the Ten Commandments.

    It is perfectly legal for a woman to give the president fellatio in the Oval Office. It is not legal to forcibly grab a woman's labia, as Donald Trump said he would do.

    Not true all wedding cakes are designed for a specific wedding. If you were right then all wedding cakes could be a Costco cake that has no design

    Did Trump do anything? No . Clinton lied to Congress. Not legal

    Jesus words,”Go and Sin No More!”. There is no way that tells you to just keep doing the same thing,over and over.

    I was shocked when I asked a couple of priests about things in the Holy Bible and to my great surprise was told that they did not read the Holy Bible! Then I found a picture of the Pope kissing the Koran! That, plus the fact that Catholics do not believe in the proper way to become saved or Born Again drove me away at a young age as well.
