Whenever I debate with Christians on such matters as Christianity, abortion, euthanasia, contraception, gay rights, organ transplants… I am nauseated at the way they so brazenly cheat and lie. They present straw man arguments. They misrepresent the stances of their opponents. They use ad hominem arguments. I am baffled that anyone could associate Christianity with moral integrity.
This way of thinking has a long pedigree: What harm would it do, if a man told a good strong lie for the sake of the good and for the Christian church… a lie out of necessity, a useful lie, a helpful lie, such lies would not be against God, he would accept them.~ Martin Luther (1483-11-10 1546-02-18 age:62)
My guess is they think like this I am absolutely sure I am right. After all I have God on my side. However, I am a fool, quite incapable of making rational arguments. To make things fair in dealing with my more intelligent opponents, I am obligated to cheat and lie. After all, they have the resources of Satan at their disposal.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
