Do you think progressives are really interested in the progressing science, or just want to trample on the rights of Christians?Posted by: giraffelover
Do progressive organizations exist to progress science or to eliminate Christian principle. And don't try that tired argument that Christianity is in the way of science.
Really trying to progress science
Trying to crush rights of Christians
Alright, why don't I just put it like this. Christians, as much as you might think so, the world doesn't revolve around you. Progressives are actually interesting in progressing society through science and legislation. If this science somehow contradicts your religion, it is usually coincidence. Considering that science is based off of fact, it takes precedent over religion. If something that comes out of science proves something in the Bible to be incorrect, then it is just that, the bible being incorrect. They are not leading a witch hunt on your ideals; they're just doing what they believe will help society. In their minds, that's science, and I happen to agree with them some of the time.
This is the stupidest $hit I ever heard. Christianity has no place in politics. The Progressive party was actually founded by Christians anyways.
The problem with progressing science is that science itself is ultimately and fundamentally incompatible with religious faith. That is not the fault of Progressives, that's just the fact. The problem with Christians, and religious people in general, is that they've had so much privilege and entitlement for so long that, now that it's slipping away, it's quite painful. I would sympathize, except that their barbaric incursions into the secular arena and their outdated concepts of morality preclude me from doing so.
When reality does not conform to your expectations, you do not blame reality and claim it is wrong, you blame your expectations. Some people with a persecution complex, despite being part of an overwhelming majority which is known for persecution, may tend to mistake this process occasionally.
Christianity is a non-sequitur, with respect to the advancement of any culture. The christian people can't even agree within themselves, and still they demand sole and exclusive dominion over the realm of morality. They have absolutely no place in politics (religion, in general), and still they move for idiotic laws like bans on gay marriage (I'm a married heterosexual, by the way). Irrespective of whether they believe their 'rights' are being trampled, perhaps it's their turn to feel what it's like to be excluded, due to dissenting belief... They've done it for centuries, and now they complain as though they are the oppressed, rather than the oppressors, losing their authority.
progress in science dismisses religion as a way to explain our world, Was not on purpose but through science it was debunked anyway.
I don't know about all progressive organizations, but I know the ACLU, LGBT, and NOW are trying to crush rights of Christians. Kudos to the EPA for actually trying to advance science, even if they are only concerned with science to protect the environment.
Goes without saying. GLAAD, ACLU, the LGBT community all want to silence Christians
Why can't they progress religion?
