    You are not a Christian. The central tenet of Christianity is human sacrifice. Jesus was brutally slaughtered As a human sacrifice. Like a slaughtered lamb. The lamb of god. Ritual sacrifice is a constant in religions. It's creepy and stupid, but yunno, people are miserable fucks that believe anything.

    Also there is an Internet movement to classify westboro as a hate group. What a worthless lot we humans are. Hate group? The whole idea is ludicrous.

    Every group is a hate group if you think about it.

    Human sacrifice is peripheral to Christianity. The central tenet of Christianity is the Son-O-God thing.

    What is the earthly purpose of the son of god. God so loved the world, that he did what? He sent his son for ritual human sacrifice....to himself.

    The basic and central belief of Christianity is that you must believe that human sacrifice is an effective method of payback to god, to whom you are in karmic debt for sinning as a species. God will forgive your sins if you believe that he forgave them through the incredibly brutal and bloody and public murder of a his son, whom he created for the purpose of human sacrifice.

    Interesting point. I'd love to hear Supa's response.

    There is nothing to respond to. That what Christianity is, that what John 316 days, it's the fundamental basis of Christianity, as practiced by virtually every modern Christian. If you don't believe in efficacy of human sacrifice, you are not a Christian in any meaningful sense.

    Another way to say that is that you are a fucking lunatic.

    Remember, Christianity is a death cult, with human sacrifice to god as its central belief.

    Primitives used to throw goats into volcanoes and hope for a good harvest. It is savagery, but it preys on a weakness of human nature, a poor understanding of cause an effect. If a good harvest comes, then the killing of the lamb is credited, and gods existence confirmed, along with the idea that god loves having things killed for him for some reason. And these myths evolved, and our modern religions still have the same plot lines religions have always had, virgin birth, human sacrifice, sin and redemption. Basically every religion is a reselling of Star Wars.

    Just a story to bring in the Jews. They were really into sacrifice. Jesus was kinda the end to sacrifice the beginning of grace.

    No, you've already pointed out that human sacrifice is a part of almost all religions, so it is no hallmark for Christianity to be likewise. But the Son-O-God thing is unique and definitely the distinguishing characteristic and the central tenet of Christianity.

    i didnt say it makes christianity unique but it is definitely the principle that the whole thing is based on. again, the whole religion is based on the idea that your sins are forgiven by human sacrifice. all you have t do is believe that.

    i dont really agree that the son of god thing is all that unique, as one dude after the next has claimed to be the son of god since forever. but i agree that of the currently fashionable religions, its the one that leans most heavily on that particular myth.

    of course i am repeating the human sacrifice thing because i think people are so jaded they forget to think about how wildly absurd and primitive the modern myths are, and how they are are barely removed from the primitive rituals practiced by cavemen.
