Proper - I disagree with the Christian belief system. I don't believe in the Bible, or in a god, and I think organized religion is a form of mind control.
Hate Speech - I don't believe in god and I think that anyone who thinks that some stupid guy on a cross died to save all of you is a brainless ignorant idiot.
Please take those as simple examples... I'm not professing to know every example in advance. I just want to help it be understood.

Christians on ATS are not victims, but are volunteers. This is not a Christian website, but there are plenty of Christian websites on the internet. This is a conspiracy website and this fact cannot be overlooked! It tells me that the majority of Christians that come onto ATS are proselytizing!
I will continue to debunk Christian beliefs and tactics. It is expected on ATS to challenge anything that one believes is wrong, or a form of denial, or covert controlling.
Oh - Excellent!
I - like so many - was assimilated into the Christian faith by family. At some point I stepped aside - out of the box - and looked at it from a realistic perspective. My conclusion was/is Christianity makes no sense what-so-ever. Also - and most importantly - it puts a lock on your brain. It keeps you from going beyond - from asking questions.
I agree there is Enlightenment and Spirituality - Religion is man made.
then a few months later I see their points are into the negative thousands or they are banned.

No need for apologies.
I just misunderstood you - my fault.
I agree with what you say - I myself have struggled with Paul a lot of the time and to be honest I'm still undecided.
I think he really believed and that he spoke a lot of Truth - even the apostles accepted his chastisement on occasion, e.g. Peter.
But in saying that he was a man under huge persecution and stree at the time and I believe often had to use human methods and therefore failings in trying to achieve what he was trying to achieve.
Therefore I think that it is possible that he made mistakes in his teachings for he was human ;as and is all the church that followed and therefore their mistakes also.
Thanks for the link. I will check it out
But to stick to the Thread - I agree that there are threads that attach other religions but for some reason Christianity is particularly strongly attached and my belief is that this is due to the message of Christianity as the power of human desire and Satans influence grows in this world.

And it seems to me that most of the Christian Debunking is generally aimed towards the hypocrisy of the church and such, rather than the actual teachings and understandings of Jesus. Most people don't understand what Jesus said, but they can see what people do in his name, and that is what they associate it with and dismiss it all because of it.

By no means do I want or expect free thought and/or opinion to be restricted because it offends me. But, IMHO there is an anti Christian, anti American vibe here that keeps me from posting. To be frank, it makes me sick.
It's a strange world where the trend is to be more sympathetic towards radical Muslims than to conservative Christians....quite prophetic too.

Ok. So, are some of you saying that, if I open up thread after thread, putting down Muslims, trying to disprove their faith and attempting to steer people clear of this belief system, that would be ok? Because it is my opinion, and I am entitled to it?
Is this what I am hearing?
Both sides, regardless of background and belief, have no tolerance what-so-ever. There is no middle ground. They argue in absolutes and nothing comes of it but more hatred.
I know some of you are non-denominational and simply follow Jesus rather than what a certain sect tells you is right.
