Would you agree that Christians say some groups of people should not have equal rights?
- Favourite answer
Yes, they think Christians should have special rights and discrimination against the groups they hate should be perfectly legal.
i will confirm that SOME CHRISTIANS have publicly STATED its been recorded it for EXAMPLE KIM DAVIS who defied the US Federal order to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples a former country clerk to rowan county Kentucky the court rejected her appeal "under Gods authority to deny marriage licenses " is their view that some groups of people should not have equal rights ..."CIVIL RIGHTS " which is not under the mandate or authority of religion
... not only Christians some Muslims also make such a claim to be fair such christian do not speak for all people who self identify as christian or Muslim ..
another confirmation is some of the BIBLE WRITERS wrote some people should NOT be treated equally .... and women are not equal in social status are also considered unclean should be silent and submissive to males
EQUALITY in human history is relatively NEW concept KINGS/pharaohs in history were connected to RELIGION they were BED fellows many religion claimed the KINGS HIGHER CLASS was ORDAINED by GODS still expressed in British coronations pharaohs were part of the religions GODS or SONS of Gods ... Constantine hooked up with the religious leaders to stabilize his new appointment of emperor they are given land and wealth and power over the common person who owned no land or the poor soil

Nope. Homosexuals have the same right as everybody else -- to marry an adult of the opposite sex.

It's possible that some Christians somewhere might say something like that. However, the original and true Christian Church, the one Church Jesus Christ founded, which He said was to remain one, to which He promised the fullness of God's truth, teaches that all humans are beloved children of God, with equal rights and equal dignity, and must be treated as such.

No, Christians interpret and relate God's Word. God will tell you what Rights are worthy of HIS promise to us. You were already EQUAL in God's eyes. It is YOU who chose to be different / indifferent.
Personally, I think you are entitled and free to be, do and think as you please, as long as it does not entail or involve my pocket book. I would not as YOU for anything other than what God's allows. I am perfectly able and willing to take from my own profit, effort, works. And you should be as well.

No, that would be stupid since Christians don't say that.

No, I wouldn't agree with that. Besides, you haven't even given us an example - so what exactly are you referring to.

No. dont agree. But I do know that there never will be equal in this world. Life isnt fair.

It has been true (and probably always will be true) that religious conservatives don't want certain other groups of people to have the same rights as them. The fact that 206 representatives voted against The Equality Act is testament to their bigotry.

Sure, they agree that pedophiles and murders should not be free to do what they want even though most of them are Christians
