Ok, staunch Atheist here... no belief in any deities or the validity of any religious systems. However, if the rapture were to occur, you know fire
from the sky, day of judgement - all that sort of fun, then why not declare war on the party imposing it?
I've no problem per se with religious individuals, although the idiocy of gay-bashing, general blind-intolerance etc is currently getting on my
breasts(!)... so yeah, I'd be up for making war on the holy ghost.
If there is an all powerful being, able to crush us for our sins, send us to hell, limbo, whatever and willing to do so for our "sins" - then what
is there to lose anyway?
Yeah, to any prior posters, I am playing Devils advocate to a degree, this is just another side to the pro-christian side of things. Allegedly, god
has given us free will, yet is willing to punish us for not being perfect and living up to his ideal, wow, pushy-parents.
