    As a polytheist, I find this offensive. What do you think?

    No.

    Only you can weigh down your heart.

    I don't find it offensive. And there's no reason to believe it can be framed as being against the Christian God's purported will. Even if the thing that many Christians do is, as you claim, to "weigh down a person's heart", which I don't think it is [they refer to it as "The Good News"], if it gives them meaning and a sense of purpose and helps them make sense of life and death, and they need non-believers to hear all about it, then I think carrying that weight is a small price to pay. I'm fine with it. One can always walk away.

    I like that too. But are we giving them the tools to do so? A good analogy maybe teaching children to compete with themselves before they understand about competing with others. What do you think FMF?

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I read your post three times, and I don't think anything.

    I agree.
    However ....
    I have seen the positive effects of Christianity on some people.

    Not for me. My polytheistic love extends to God too. Especially God in fact. RTP.

    I take it this means you are, in fact, not an unripe banana. In which case, we should form an online alliance.

    I don't know sir, you bring an awful lot of baggage. Please list the 3 main benefits of forming an alliance with you.
