Again, you completely ignored my question and pretended as if my sources don't exist, therefore they need not be addressed of course.

As far as your books, books aren't scientific studies. Any idiot can string together a bunch of concepts and just pretend as if they are fact, or simply use persuasive language with no scientific backing whatsoever. I also noticed not one of the authors are Doctors or have a masters degree. I am curious what scientific authority they have to make such claims.
 
CITE STUDIES SUPPORTING YOUR ARGUMENT.

If you are incapable of condensing your ideas into simple descriptions with links to sources of science based studies, either you don't have any knowledge of the information you claim expertise on, or the studies don't exist.
Just because it is in a book does not give it scientific value. Return here when you are capable of debating.

What gives you the right to be intolerant and destroy the gender norms of the vast majority of the population while hiding behind a veil of tolerance?

Churches spent a lot less in charity than what is claimed by them.

Can you prove this?

If common sense isn't enough you can find lots of material online.

Comment on a study: http://holysoup.com/2013/08/06/the-shocking-truth-of-church-budgets/

You could argue about comparing a churchís expenses to a public charityís expenses. But the enormous disparity is striking, especially to the public. Itís made worse by looking at how churches allocate funds to direct ministries. According to the ECCU study, churches use 3 percent of their budget for childrenís and youth programs, and 2 percent for adult programs. Local and national benevolence receives 1 percent of the typical church budget.


"In the United States, 50 percent of social services are provided by the Catholic church,"

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/mar/19/frank-keating/does-catholic-church-provide-half-social-services-/


Mormons are all for profit: http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/13/13262285-mormon-church-earns-7-billion-a-year-from-tithing-analysis-indicates

 From your politifact link: "So by our estimate, Catholic-affiliated charity amounts to 17 percent of the funds spent by nonprofits on social services -- well short of the 50 percent Keating cited. Even doubling this share to create a generous margin of error brings it to 34 percent -- still well short of half."

Just catholic churches? So what? This one idiot overstated numbers, does that not mean that is not a large % of charitable funding? How much will that number be after taxes? What will that tax money go to? Also do you think this is some how limited just to catholic charities? The law doesn't work like that. People are just being tricked into demanding their own slavery.

I am merely a humble servant of Truth. All myths deserve to be destroyed, for they are worms eating away at the immortal tree of Truth.

For someone who advocates killing God you sure do adopt the persona of a preacher giving a sermon.

BTW that wasn't an answer to my question, and I am still waiting on those scientific studies that prove gender norms are not biologically driven in any way.

First of all tax is theft, so any time there are more taxes I am not for it, I am not sure how more being taken from others some how befits you personally considering the financial black hole that has become the US government. Second of all reducing the ability for these churches to fund themselves is very much so a direct attack on them. Yeah of course there always some fat cat leeches skimming off the system, but that is the case in absolutely every industry. It doesn't make it ok, but it also doesn't mean you throw the baby out with the bathwater.

We are talking about a situation where the hard working middle class is being made to pay hefty taxes, and at the same time individual churches, some of which are having tens of millions of USD in annual funding is being exempted from paying any tax. I don't think that this is fair at all. Either abolish the taxes, or make them uniform for everyone without any exceptions.

I never justified it or said it was right. My point was throwing more money into a black hole won't fix anything and will have negative side effects such as lack of funding for actual charities. If there are truckloads of rice going to Africa, and the truck driver steals a few bags to sell for himself, should we tax the whole truck now and cause less people to be fed just so the truck driver pays his fair share? I understand and agree with your argument, but removing their tax exempt status will not fix anything at all. It is basically like two little sisters playing with their toys, and one of the sisters breaks theirs and then cries that its not fair. If you don't like the fact that you are taxed, do something about it, don't just demand its imposition on more people. That is idiotic. 

This is very clearly a divisive attempt of dividing the nation even further along race, religion, sexual orientation, class, age, etc. These are Marxist tactics designed to destroy the nations ability to act in unison to defend itself. All this religious intolerance is getting out of hand. Religions have convinced people to kill, we get it... so has money, and corporations, government, etc, but we don't abolish those things.

No reply to my earlier comments? I guess thats how you cope when someone calls you out on your inconsistencies and lack of logic.

Here is a fun video showing how social justice warriors are basically indistinguishable from neonazis.

Too bad after your wanton destruction of social structures in #1 and #2, #3 is impossible, because science has already proven gender is not just a social construct.
Actually, modern Science has understood gender to be a social construct since sexologist John Money's pioneering work on sex and gender distinction in 1955.

Of course, with all the racism, sexism, Islamophobia, and homophobia on this forum, it's clear half the fuckwits on this forum are operating as if we're still in the late 40's.

So what your saying is your single source from 60 years ago is more accurate than all of the modern studies I sourced
My sources begin with the books in the OP of this thread. I didn't put them there so you could enjoy the pretty pictures.

Read at least two or three of those books and then return here when you're worthy of debate.

Hmm... very simple. The kids will be asked about their opinion about homosexuality. If they answer that they donít condone sodomy, then they will be removed from their parents and given up for adoption. This methodology has been put into practice in many of the Western nations, such as Sweden, Norway, and Canada.  

Name some cases where this has happened. You are a little bit extreme to say the least no doubt crackers. Your post is straight to the top of the weekly crappy awards. There will be no kids taken away for being against or disagreeing with anything, stop blowing shit out or proportion.

OP That interview with the teacher what was she thinking, you see the thing with ISIS they are against homo's and very intolerant of them Cheesy  So are a large percentage of the planet, I would not take another word she said seriously.

Obviously you haven't had much exposure to the radical left of western Europe...

Accusations without any proof at all are useless...

Funny you say this, because that is the entire reason this thread was created. When people damage your reputation without proof using the trust system, all there is to do is point at the accuser. How exactly do you prove a negative? Why should people be guilty until proven innocent?

Funny that VOD never did that, ''systematic abuse'' Maybe he was mistaken once or twice but i wouldnt call that systematic when  he has around 99% accuracy with his ''reports'' or trust ratings

Oh really? He was averaging about 5 negatives a day just before he "left". Once or twice? He left several hundred negative ratings, so even by your own metric of him being 99% correct in his ratings he would have left more than 1 or 2 false ratings.

His repeated abuse of the trust system is well documented on the forum, as well as this thread. In addition he has a consistent habit of not having any evidence for a vast number of his accusations. Do you know these people? Then how do you know that his ratings are accurate? Because he says so? Leaving people negative ratings with zero evidence is a bad precedent to set and opens up even more avenues for abuse.

Too bad you haven't bothered to review any of this stuff and just pretend like you know what you are talking about without bothering to read the substance of the complaints.

Why is it necessary to attack the funding for all religious organizations? A lot of these groups run actual substantive charities that help lots of people in demonstrable ways.

No one is going to attack the funding. The proposal is just to levy a tax on them, just like other businesses such as restaurents and coffee shops. I agree that some of that money is used for charity purposes. But what about the rest, which makes up the vast majority? You can't say that money which is being used to buy BMWs for the Bishops and Cardinals should be exempt from tax.

First of all tax is theft, so any time there are more taxes I am not for it, I am not sure how more being taken from others some how befits you personally considering the financial black hole that has become the US government. Second of all reducing the ability for these churches to fund themselves is very much so a direct attack on them.
