The downside of being accused of sexual harassment, or worse rape or child molestation is enormous. Long before any trial you're already convicted in the court of public opinion. You lose your job, your career, your livelihood, your very name, perhaps your family. Falsely convicted and you lose your freedom, and the very real fact that other prisoners are not particularly nice to sex offenders.

When the downside is that freaking high, yeah, you don't take any chances. It's a completely reasonable fear. If you're a man, don't be alone with a woman you don't know and trust, and absolutely under no circumstances be alone with somebody else's kid.

Sure, but once you understand the basic premises of Christianity it's not slavish devotion to anything. You start with basic principles and build up. You can derive the "rules" yourself. I recommend reading "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis if you're interested in understanding the Christian mindset.

1) Jesus brought a new covenant, so yes we ignore the stuff from the old testament.

2) Jesus was using a metaphor. There are tons of them in the bible (did you know the Kingdom of God isn't literally a mustard seed?! Huh!). You'll notice also HE brought the (metaphorical) sword. He did not give it to his followers, and he never used it. He strictly forbade his followers from using the physical sword.

Now tell me how many people Mohamed murdered and crucified? This is the horror of multiculturalism: you cannot tell the difference between christianity and its exact opposite islam.

Because of this, the Mohammedans, who do not give a shit about your whiny multicultural bullshit will behead you and rape your women. I'll be fine though. Even in ISIS lands they're not killing Christians so long as they pay the jizya.

You forgot that one important factor: Islam. Of course you can't even say it because the official religion of the US is multiculturalism, the belief that "no beliefs" is the One True Belief and that all other beliefs are both inferior and equivalent. Hence, no one can ever say "just maybe, wrong and stupid christians don't go nuts because their book says "love your enemy" but muslims do because their book says "slay the infidels.""

Instead we're just going to sit around while muslims keep killing people and then tsking about how the problem is "religion."
