I know it's hard to express feelings or manner of speaking in a forum so because of that before I type my response I wanted to make it clear that I'm not bashing or trying to start an argument even though it'll seem that way, just expressing how I feel.
My belief for the bashing of Christians is due to Christians pushing their beliefs on the world or onto anyone that doesn't believe what they believe. I'm not religious, don't believe in any higher power, and don't want to hear it..same as believers don't want to hear what I believe.
I'm tired of having to deal with the hypocrisy of Christians telling me my soul is lost and I need to be saved but yet they are the ones I have to drag out of the bar I work in for starting fights. I'm tired of religious thinking laws and the country should be run by their beliefs and the rest of us should be forced to follow them. I'm tired of ALL religions believing theirs is the best and only right religion and waging wars over it, or strapping bombs to their chest and blowing up innocent people in the name of their god. You see, I don't just hate Christians, I hate all religions.
If believers of all religions want to stop being felt like they are being bashed against then perhaps they should stop doing the very things to us non believers that are being done to them. I don't ask for any of you to come to my house and try to "save" me and I don't go to your house telling you to stop believing in your god. I don't want your beliefs nor do I want you to wake me up to tell me about your god. The only thing any of us really need to be saved from is religion itself. You want the feeling of being persecuted to stop? Leave us alone. Keep your religious values and beliefs to yourself and we'll keep ours to ourselves. It's that simple.
Again, I'm not bashing just expressing my beliefs, same as all of you.
It's my opinion that religion will be the downfall of man.

Ok so, I watched the video, and I'm not a christian. The only thing I got from this was a bitter youtube poster upset that a free thinking society doesn't submit to his religous views. I see this on a daily basis by the thousands. Why is this so special?
Just the few people with their negative posts here on
ats prove that a people with out God are a people with out respect.
For those who still don't 'get it', imagine that thousands of people, even millions of people, spent the majority of their lives trying to demand that 'Little Red Riding Hood' be banned and never mentioned again. It would happen in the span of a few months. But the Bible has withstood that kind of assault for 2000 years. If it's really just a fairy tale, then why won't it die?

The "bitter youtube poster" as you erroneously referred to was talking to other Christians about their Christianity, and telling them to not let this present evil world to tempt them or lure them from the true Gospel.
I do my best to live by that belief but as I'm only human and subject to emotion getting the better of me just as much as the next guy it is hard sometimes. With that said, if Jesus really did exist I believe his message of us loving each other and treating everyone as a brother and sister is right on. but it's my opinion we don't need religion or a church to tell us that. I think deep down we all have that love in us, some of us just need the right things to happen to us to see that.
