Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What did the gays do? If you asked around, you could certainly find lots of loonys who'd be happy to explain that the gays are the curse of the world. Sort of like the loonys who try to explain that monotheists are the curse of the world. All smells like intolerant, narrow minded horse crap spewed from a left leaning (unfortunately) pedestal to me. But apparently, some around here appreciate it.

Don't put words in others' mouths.

And stop trolling, that's enough.

Ie, some (apparently one person) around here appreciate "intolerant, narrow-minded horse crap from a left-leaning (unfortunately -- (no, don't concern troll)) pedestal". That is putting (your) words in other people's mouths (or minds).

... if he had said "I damn you to eternal hellfire", now THAT would be very Christian of him.

I think it's very humanist of him.

And I forgive you too.

No Forgiveness is a Saxon pre-Christian concept

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

If you're talking about the Anglo-Saxons, their period lasted for 600 years, from 410 to 1066... so AFTER Christ and way after the Old Testament - which also treats the concept of forgiveness.

no, Germanic Saxons, an altogether earlier beast. Christianity hadn't moved that far North through central Europe yet.
