it does not have bad advise! Look it says: donât murder, donât steal, donât sleep around (or you could get venereal diseases), donât lie, donât cheat people. is this by any mean BAD advice?


Did you know that a bottle of poison has only healthy ingredients too? Water!

...You can't claim the Bible does not have bad advice by selectively picking and choosing what advice you want to follow from it. The Bible also tells people the following

-Women must marry their rapists
-Stone homosexuals
-Kill basically anyone with another belief system
-Allows slavery

and more.

i think if everybody did read the bibles laws and followed them the crime would be much, much lower.


How about we all just follow the laws in the first place? Crime would be lower then too. The Bible has nothing to do with Law.

if you ask him if he made a mess he will look you straight in the face and say: nooo I didnât...


That's because the child is scared of being punished, likely because of the tone of voice used when asked if they did it or not.

No father means no role model and no one to be an example. If the person doesn't grow up in a Christian household, than sin is all they know. Also, without a father, there is need. No single cause creates crime. If just one of these are there though, there is a good chance of it.


1. If there's a father, there's a slight chance they'll be a bad role model though, You gotta note this.
2. There are tons of religions and many different things are called "sins" if we followed them all we could barely do anything.
3. Need is not a common cause of crime. I can understand people living on the street stealing bread though

There are other role models for children too. A father figure helps, but making this claim is just incorrect.


Another reason that number 1 doesn't work out.

It is widely believed that having an abusive father can cause children to be abusive as well.


Or it can cause their kids to be a better father so their kids don't have to suffer through what they did.

but religion shouldn't be used in any way to create a law.
then your suppressing the freedom of those whit a different believe.


So basically if one religion believed that killing is bad that there should be no law against murder?

(sound like a president we know?)


Sounds familiar...

No. The law against murder shouldn't be made because one religion says it's bad. This isn't a juvenile reverse psychology rebellion, it's the simple fact that religion should be irrelevant to law. We make laws for reasons, not because some religion says something is or is not okay. If religion agrees, great. If it doesn't, well, too bad.

obama has to act like he believes because the laws and public demand that the president should have the christian religion.
so it's not his choosing it's what is demanded of him.

Currently, it's not though. Religion has a moderate influence on law in the US. Other countries have much heavier influence on their laws from religion too. Hence why I said should.

public demand that the president should have the christian religion.


This is another example. Lawmakers/Politicians get voted for in part because of their religion. It shouldn't have anything to do with the vote, but it does. Also, obviously, those who believe in a certain religion are going to try and push their religion's values into law and try and limit what their religion says they should (to some extent).

Hate to break it to ya but ummmm... Hitler was not a Christian, he may have put on that mask for propaganda and to look good (sound like a president we know?) but he was by no means a bible follower


Hate to break it to ya...but Hitler was Christian. He didn't use it as a mask either...he was Christian. Mein Kampf has many references to god...and he made many of his soldiers/officers where pins/emblems representing god/Christian faith
Why don't you take a look-see?
