Now, before I begin, I must say that of all of the world's religions, I have become the most critical of Islam and Christianity sense 9/11. I have
even posted my own thread explaining my thoughts and beliefs in regards to these two religions, here:
The Islamic and christian Attempt To Rule The World
Now, while whether I am Christian can and probably should be debated, two things are a fact, I am not athiest and am very spiritual. However,
spirituality should never be confused with religion. They are not one and the same, though many wouyld argue that they are.
However, I have noticed that almost every other thread here at ATS is either an anti-Christian one, or soon devolves into one. Of course, there are
certain posters, not naming any names for they should know who they are, who can only relate to any topic by inserting an anti-Christian comment into
I think one of the things that is hurting the Christian agenda is their, in my opinion, radical right fundamentalists. Some of these people seem
almost on the same par as the radical Islamists who go around screaming "Allah Akbar" just before they explode themselves in a mall area killing
twenty other people with them.
In a world that has become increasingly materialistic, it would seem that some of us, perhaps even myself, are scapegoating. Now, with that being
said, I stand by my previous thread about the "war on terrorism" being nothing less than a renewed crusade by the two Abrahamic religions to try and
re-instate perceived loss of power. My stance is not likely to change on that issue. I think the facts speak for themself.
When I look at the world today and I see such things on the news such as the Finnish shooter who had some very Darwinistic, athiestic views, I have to
ask myself what is really going on. Why is it that we scapegoat certain groups when the problems seem to flood into so many different aspects of
Yet, when you bring up the fact that Darwinistic, atheistic mentalities are just as harmful as overly religious ones, there is a mad rush to defend
atheism... Why? Can anyone expediently explain that anomaly to me?
It may surprise some of the Christians here that I am, in a sense, coming to their defense. However, it shouldn't. Anyone who follows my posts knows
that I am a believer in Jesus Christ, though, not a mainstream believer.
I guess my whole point is that I am starting to get weary of seeing the same tired, anti-Christian threads here. If you want to make derogatory
comments about Christianity, why not revitalize a thread that is already existant on the topic? There certainly is no shortage of them here at ATS.
