This is very strange way of agreeing with me. Why would you make the same exact point that I made, and then call me a moron for it? It's like Rosa Parks saying to Dr. King "US citizens should be equal regardless of race, moron". It just doesn't make sense.

Tegan, this has to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard you say. And it's very weird because you're really intelligent. But think about this sentence (I shall call it 'P'):
(P) It does not matter whether or not child sacrifice is sinful because not every American lives by the Bible.
I want to use this sentence (instead of the one you made) just so that it would be easier to point out what you did wrong, without having to simultaneously address the homosexuality bit, as I'm sure we can plainly see the clear immorality of child sacrifice without disagreement.
Now the first mistake P makes, is the strange connection with Sin to the Bible. The problem is this: the Bible does not determine what is sinful or not
. Even if there was no Bible, it would still be sinful to murder, lie, cheat, steal, commit adultery, sacrifice your child to Mo-lech, etc.. In fact, that exactly how it was before the Bible was even compiled (and it wasn't compiled until MANY years AFTER Jesus).
The second mistake, which explains the first, is that P does not understand what it means for something to be sinful. Sins refer to morality. And not just any morality, but Objective morality. Meaning something that is right or wrong regardless of who you are, where you are, or when you are. Take bestiality. The Canaanites were judged by God because of that sexuality immorality (among others). So were the Jews warned. And even us modern day Gentiles are under the same conviction of morality regardless of what any of us may think on the matter. That's the whole point of something being objective. So, if Sins are real and Child Sacrifice is a sin, it does not matter whether you are American, Hindu, Mongolian, or some Discovery Age Puritan. It is still a sin.
Finally, and most interestingly I want to note your closing comment towards me:
"you are just pooping more of your religiously tainted beliefs out"
Think a little bit, Tegan. Couldn't the same be said of you -- whereas your "religion" is more of something resembling that grand Metaphorical Babylon? Just as a pro-tip for the future, make sure when you use accusatory language like this, that it's logic can't also be used against yourself.
