I think you might be wasting your time on this one. I've seen the same point addressed here so many times, that I think I can predict exactly what the response will be: 1 - "We don't hate the sinner, we hate the sin." 2 - "*I* don't hate you, God hates you (or hates what you're doing, etc)." 3 - "That's not hate; it's love - you just can't see it because the demon that inhabits your soul is blinding you." 4 - "Those people aren't REAL Christians." 5 - "The wages of sin is death. We can do whatever we want to you because God has condemned you." There may be others, but those are the most familiar rants I've heard around here. I just *love* the way any offense, legal or moral, attributed to a non-Christian is given as PROOF POSITIVE that all non-Christians are that way, but when a nominal Christian messes up, well, that's not the same thing at all. Slippery, man, slippery. Of course, the old "Lucifer is deceiving you" line is a beauty, too. Since you and I are not Christians, we OBVIOUSLY are being deceived by Satan if we're happy with our belief systems. There is NO WAY that a TRUE CHRISTIAN could be deceived in the same manner, even seeing as how Satan is a deity of theirs, not ours. And while we're on the topic of illogical logic, how about the famous Christian use of the Bible as "proof" of the existance of the Christian God, and the use of "God's Word" as "proof" of the truth of the Bible? Love that circular logic, don't you? ===[---Mister-Zen---
