If we see the rise of a Christian version of Taliban, how shall we deal with it?
Despite some think, Christian is better then Muslim, if we read the bible carefully, we realized it is just as bloody e.g. Chronicles 15:12-13 they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul, but that whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death. Modern US ignoring Christian group lobbying on issue eg gay marriage and abortion, have push extreme group's anger to boiling point, FBI warn possible rise of Christian Taliban, pushing for modern inquisition if it happen, how to deal with this threat?
There are no Christian groups actively killing adulterers, homosexuals or blasphemers. There are no Christians today who have done anything remotely close to what the Taliban did (and protesting abortion clinics is nothing close to female genital mutilation, making women wear a veil under threat of beatings or acid in the face, blowing up girls' schools).
Iran, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim dominated nations are formally executing homosexuals and atheists for being such. In Pakistan, the police don't do anything when atheists are hacked to death (about a dozen in the past year) because they say the atheists triggered it by denying Allah. Iran has jailed Christians for being Christian.
But I know in part of Eastern Europe they have also legalize killing gays, because it is a sin in Christianity.
I know Russia jails homosexuals - but ISIS has youtube videos of them being thrown from roofs and Saudi Arabia and Iran execute them.
Russia, Iran and Saudi have problem in this arena indeed.
We won't, so don't worry. You're worrying about something that does not exist. Christians are not going to rise up and kill people. It's just not going to happen. There are real problems out there that need to be addressed. Worry about them.
If history serves - it can, and will happen. Christian history is as violent if not more than that of Islam - Islam is just a younger faith. If u think Christian history isn't violent, you've not studied it.
The difference is that Christianity's violence was in the past, people keep bringing up Crusades. Islam's violence is TODAY, 1000s of attacks a year, killing those who are not Muslim to scare them into converting or submitting to 2nd class status.
That is true Tamara, but we don't want inquisition 2.0 and we are seen a chance for it to happen, evidence by action of extreme Christian group in the US and Russia throwing gays in prison for been gay, is in fact a semi inquisition, already

I'm an atheist, but I've always thought that the Bible adamantly condemns homosexuality. Do homosexuals have any chance of getting into heaven? This has always confused me. In God's eyes, is being homosexual any more...

There seems to be such a focus in the forums between homosexuality and religion/god that I am now curious about whether or not gay people can be Christians in the same context as straight people can be Christians?
