Ever been bothered by a Christian?

The only thing I hate about being gay is the amount of shit we get from homophobes.
Especially Christians.
Their only argument is the bible, we're forbiden, blah blah blah.
No offense if any of you are Christians of course, everyone is entitled to freedom
of religion.
Lots of Christians annoy me when they force the "word of god" in my face.
They constantly blather about the true word of god and insist that
the bible is right about anything.
Unfortunately for them, it's not.
There's so many problems with it you could right a series of books on it.
Consider Noah's ark.
There's a story that predates Genesis, called the Gilgamesh Epic.
Most people reading it casually can find loads of similarities with the story
of Noah's ark.
The Hebrews probably adopted it to their mythology.
But Christians always seem to ignore "insignificant" facts like that.
If you want to find some interesting arguments about the bible,
go to http://www.rice.edu/armadillo/Sciacademy/riggins/things.htm.
Usually, religious people will leave after you bring any of those issues up.
They'll give you dirty looks though.
It's kinda fun.

Yes

I'm a Christian, and I am frequently bothered by other Christians. When it comes down to it, I'm annoyed by anyone who tries to force
some biased religious (or even non-religious) belief on me. I try to be open-minded to what others think, but sometimes I can't help but be frustrated with it...especially when it attacks homosexuality,
because then it's attacking part of who I am. So I get your
drift; unfortunately I think most of us at this website
know that feeling all too well.

Sorry...

If I offended you.
I don't have anything against Christianity, I think a lot of it is wonderful.
Jesus was a great guy.
So were a lot of other people in the bible.
There are so many wonderful Christian organisations that I couldn't ever list them all.
A lot of Christian are great people that I love spending time with.
Some of my best friends are Christian.
But...
I don't like it how many of them force their views on the world.
Just because they believe it,
Everyone else has to too.
There are fanatice in every aspect of life.
This was just my defense mechanisims for one type of them.

No worries!

No worries! You didn't offend me in the least. I was more or
less agreeing with what you said. Humans have a habit of forcing
their beliefs onto each other, no matter what religion they are.
Sadly, that's human nature, and I totally agree with you in that respect.

Reference

You are of course referring to the book of Leviticus. Leviticus is the most controversial section of the Bible, and in itslef in not accepted by Christians today as being "valid" in the laws of society. The religion itself tends to distance itself from Leviticus, but of course that means they have nothing in the bible to bash with. Oh well, that's what the Christians get for not reading the fine print.

Leviticus

The New Testaments (did I spell that right) seem to say that a lot of the Old Testaments should be ignored.
The Bible confuses me.
Is it just me?

agreed

I agree, Christian organizations do amazing things, but the Bible has been changed and added to and translated oddly. There can also be some people that take it waaayyy too seriously, they worship it but it should be a guidline (note from Beryl: kinda like the pirate code) haha... So yeah, believing in it okay, but the religion gets on my nerves... woot to my Unitarian Universalist-ness...

Translations

I'm guessing that it started out in Hebrew.
And then it was translated into another language,
Probably Latin.
It was the holy language that the church used.
Then English, if we ignore how much that may have changed.
Old English is very confusing.
I can hardly understand it.
Then Shakespearean English.
Then English as we know it today.

Those are just rough guesses on how it was done.
It probably didn't happen that way.
But.
It would've had many translations.
And, for me, English to French translations change a lot.
Four or Five languages?
How similar could the finished version be to the original?
It's like that telephone game.
The one where you sit in a circle and pass a message around.
The message will be different when you get back to the person who started it.
