Omnipotent gods don't want for anything.

As I said, if God had prevented it then He would've put disorder into His own ordered thought, by no longer wanting what He had previously wanted: that is free will.

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

If it required that I go against my beliefs, then yes. That is part and parcel of having any principles at all. We see here that despite your claim to the contrary, your principles require you to treat gay people different from how you treat straight people. Why not just admit it? alright, so you'r...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

How so? By declining if it was a religious ceremony. Would you do that to a straight friend of yours? If there was a "charge to the friends" to support the marriage you'd have to stand mute. Would you do that to a straight friend of yours? By not endorsing the means by which he reached his happines...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

If it were a religious ceremony, I would have to politely decline. If it were a non-religious ceremony, and one of them were a friend, I would go in support of my friend. I would not kiss the bride in any case. If, as in some ceremonies I have seen, the officiant made a "charge to the friends" to s...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

But, again, I do not treat people different when they are openly gay than I do anyone else. Great, that's very Christian of you! So you would have no qualms going as a guest to a gay marriage? Would you kiss the bride? If it were a religious ceremony, I would have to politely decline. If it were a ...

So why can't Christianity like people without pretending that they're perfect? Why can't we love people warts and all?
You tell me.

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

There are no good moral people. Either there is a divine objective (to us) plumb line, and we fail to match it -- regardless which or how many gods are invoked -- or else morality is a figment of our imagination, and we just like it when people do what we like. There are plenty of good moral people...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

1. An author can easily be proven to exist. If that is true, then please explain how the character, Kilgore Trout, would be able to deduce from first principles that Kurt Vonnegut exists. Because it's just a book that Kurt Vonnegut wrote. What else is there to explain? Come on. YOU know that (actua...
