Post A short exchange of views

I posted a couple of comments on a video about the Westboro family, originally in response to another comment:
Person A wrote:THEY ARE, NOT REALS CHRISTIANS!

I wrote:Wrong. They are real Christians. The irony is that you don't see it.,

Person B wrote:judging and condemning everyone is being a, Christian? hmmm this i did not know

I wrote:Apparently, you haven't read the bible then.

Person B wrote:I KNOW IT SAYS not to judge people for it is not your place but gods., Who are you to say i haven't read the bible.

(Because caps make your argument STRONGER?)

I wrote:Yea, tiny problem with that., That's some very selective reading there. Try Genesis 17:14, 24:3, 38:24; Exodus 4:24, 11:7, 15:26, 17:13+, 19:5, 22:18+, 23:32, 30:33, 31:14, 32:27, 34:11; even if we leave out the rest of Leviticus, there are more lovely passages like Deuteronomy 2:21-25, 2:30, 2:33-36, 7:3, 7:10, 7:25, 13:1-5, 17:2-7, 23:3+6, 28 everything, 32:19, Joshua 3:7, 2 Kings 2:23, Psalms 2:8, 14:1, 53:1 and so on and so forth.

Person B wrote:many scriptures can be used to help any, argument. I'm done here. Have fun with your life.

I wrote:So that's your retort? "Lalalalalala I cannot hear youuuuu"? Not very convincing. I am a bit surprised that you would defeat your own point you made earlier by saying that one can make any claim about what the bible says, but I do not disagree. I merely go one step further and look at the ratio of kind and disgusting things in the book and honestly, the conclusion is quite clear. It's definitely not a book showcasing or advocating particularly moral behavior.


awaiting response...

Edit:

Person B wrote:you make a good point. Thats all i have to say


Well that was unexpected. Anticlimactic, too.

Edit 2: Person A comes to the rescue! (compare this to what he said earlier)

Person A wrote:I know they are real Christians but, their, motives and morals as Christians is wrong!


I wrote:Help me out here, what part of their actions are morally wrong from a Christian point of view and what is your evidence (where in the bible are these actions condemned)?


Person A wrote:First of all, it's not their responsibility to judge others, there are a couple of verses in the bible that we should judge or condemn others, like Romans 14:12-13 and Luke 6:37. I don't think they should be protesting against funerals of dead soliders, I mean there are many examples of, war in the bible, where it was God's plan that they go to war like when the Israelites went to war in 1 Samuel 15:3. War is never, a good thing, but sometimes it is inevitable.


no time for a response yet, but I will, in due time, have fun with this one.
I am determined that my children shall be brought up in their father's religion, if they can find out what it is.
