This video, and things like it, is why I have such a strong distaste for christianity and organized religion in general. I wonder why they have such strong desires to see others conform to their religious ideology. Is it fear? Are they afraid that they are wrong, so they feel the need to constantly reinforce their beliefs by indoctrinating others? Is it the need to feel superior? Literally 'Holier Than Thou'? Why do christians in general feel the need for it to be "Us verses Them"? I would honestly BE a christian right now if I had been allowed to make my own mind up. If christians as a whole actually lived the message of peace and humility and understanding, then I would BE a christian. Unhesitantly, unflinchingly. That right there is why I don't believe them. Because if there were a god, he wouldn't invite people such as that into his kingdom. 'Kingdom' itself is a fallacy. If god were really omnipotent and omniscient then it wouldn't BE a 'kingdom', it would just BE. He wouldn't NEED your worship, because only flawed beings with egos, need to have those egos stroked by the worship of 'lesser beings'. IF god were all knowing and all wise, then he wouldn't need subservience. Only flawed beings feel the need to be superior. That is why we are not created by god in his image, 'God' was created by man, in the image of man. I live in America, where (for the moment) your free to believe whatever you want to. So feel free to do so, BUT as an American, I have to say: "Keep thy religion to thyself, and I will keep my boot out of thy backside" Sound fair?
