"No I haven't I have just told you what the bible says not what my views say."

1) "Bible" is capitalized. I've mentioned this to you before.
2) There are consequences for representing views not your own. You might share responsibility for their crimes. For example, when fundamentalist Christians blocked UN funding of sex education in Africa, they helped create the climate of ignorance there where AIDS runs rampant and children are raped by AIDS carriers who believed rumors that AIDS can be cured by having sex with a virgin. That report was on National Public Radio. Do you dispute it? Epidemics of AIDS and related diseases are destroying some African countries. Now, the only safe place in Africa for some persons is a church tent. Christianity is reportedly growing by leaps and bounds. There will soon be an army of African Christians who are anti-UN and anti-liberal regarding American Constitutional liberties. So, by some ways of reckoning, the fundamentalists have success!
However, that puts fundamentalists on a potential enemies list for they have made themselves enemies of other persons of good faith who believe in a just and loving God...who are not fundamentalists.
3) I am not telling you my views, but someone else's: several attempts were made to liquidate the Christians, who actually do have some ethnic
patterns in their leadership.
Do you want folks to post here who will explain such views although not their own?

I don't.
