The only people turning a blind eye to child abuse are child abusers.

One rotten apple is one too many!

Now that's an interesting moral pronouncement.
...But if we point out that God is concerned that we all have sinned and that every life contains some rotten sin, you go off in a huff about "your god" this and that.

Originally posted by wolfgang59I have never cared about what an imaginary being may be concerned with either. However, sonship and myself do care about what the real being named Yahshua and called Jesus by most Christians cares about.

And I have never cared about what an imaginary being may be concerned with.
What has and does concern me is how real people are effected by
what they consider "sin" (arbitrary crimes against their god) and
the effect on society.
No irony there.
